IDAHO Republicans favor expansion
because they believe that the possessions
of islands in the Atlantic and in the
Pacific will help to extend our commerce
and they wish all benefits possible to
accrue to the people of the Pacific coast.
THE settlement of the "trust" ques
tion is not a political one , but it calls for
the concerted action and best judgment
of all legislators. Whenever a "trust"
tends to impair the rights and privileges
of citizens , it aims neither at Republic
ans , Democrats nor Populists , but at all
alike. Therefore the representatives of
all the people should join hands for the
protection of all.
THE Democracy is so devoted to free
trade that the small temporary duty im
posed on imports from Porto Rico is de
nounced as a national disgrace. Were
that party to gain control of the govern
ment , it would attempt to establish free
trade between the United States and
Europe , so that everything we bought
with the cheap money it promises us
would "be made in Germany , Englander
or any other old place" rather than in
the United States.
THAT Havana post-office embezzling
affair is a most deplorable and huuiiliat
ing occurrence. It has been the hope o
the administration and of the American
people that we might be able to give the
Cubans a sample of uniformly hones
and efficient government. With but few
and slight exceptions this has 'been ac
couiplished. Honorable and able men
have administered the island's affairs
In the post-office department , between
the military and civic authorities , there
seems to have been an opportunity for
rascality , and unfortunately the rascals
were found , developing in an unexpectec
quarter. This exception in a clean ant
able administration of the island's affairs
is to be regretted ; and the hope anr
desire is general that the rascals may be
punished promptly and adequately.
Do You Have Fifty Cents ?
If you have , will tell you how to get
the most for your money. The Semi
Weekly State Journal , published at Lin
coln , wants several thousand new sub
scribers and as a special inducement
will mail the paper twice a week from
now until the end of this year for only
50 cents. Two papers each week with
all the news of the world , through the
great presidential campaign and the
campaign in this state for two United
States senators and the state ticket.
Never in your life have you been offered
so much reading matter for 50 cents.
Send in your 11101163' "glit now , because
the sooner you send it in the more pa
pers you get for your money. Address ,
