BOISE. Idaho, Oct. 23. (Special.)
The somewhat agitated frame of mind
of Northern Idaho politically, and the
inuendo charges made against the
southern part of the state now that the
Republican political campaign is be
ginning to book, received serious con
sideration of party leaders here this
Briefly this agitation seems to be
crystallizing in the verdict that the
South is playing the part of "office
hog" in that it seeks to control a great
majority" of Federal and state offices.
The North 'wants more consideration.
It is without either Senator or Repre
sentative in Congress; the Governor
ship and a majority of the state of
fices now are lost to it. Due to the
peculiar geographical conditions of this
state the interests of the . North are
not entirely in common .with those of
the South, and for that reason there is
a clamor for additional representation.
Charges and counter charges of
church influence have in the past been
raised in connection with party control
of office and there is an inclination,
even this early in the campaign, on the
part of the North to charge the Mor
mons with endeavoring to dictate.
South' Candidates Appear Early.
The North has endeavored to bring
out a strong candidate for Governor,
but the South again seems to have been
one step in advance, for it already has
two candidates in the field, with the
prospects of more to follow. There apj
pears to be a concerted movement in
the North to' induce George Crum, of
Lewiston, or Charles L. Heitmap, of
Rathdrum.. to make the race as guber
natorial candidates, but neither so far
has made his intentions known.
Quite the contrary seems to be true
of the South. Captain E. G. Davis, of
Boise, is an announced candidate. Davd
W. Davis, of American Falls, has per
mitted the use of his name as an
aspirant. John M. Haines, of Boise, de
feated in the last campaign, is keep
ing party leaders puzzled as to what
his attitude will be.
Primary Law in Blamed.
A -sample of the feeling in the North
Is contained in the following statement
In' one of the leading Republican papers
there, the Coeur d'Alene Press:
"The North will get no candidate for
Governor on the Republican or Demo
cratic tickets. Neither will it get a
candidate for any other leading office
unless Burton L. French should seek
the primary nomination for Congress.
"He has a hold in the South which
will give him the nomination, but the
'orth need- not apply for any other
place of prominence, for the -South,
under the present primary law, will
take- all these nominations.
"For this reason, if for no others
the people of the North ought to be op
posed to the primary law in its pres
ent form." , ,
North ITrged V Back Beat.
There is now a demand that promi
nent Republicans in the North agree on
candidates to be brought out and en
deavor to get behind the strongest
available men. Already such men as
K. E. Elliott, of Bonners Ferry: Miles
Johnson, of Lewiston; ex-State Senator
Potts, of Coeur d'Alene; Speaker Con
ner, of Sandpoint. , and Burton L.
French, of Moscow, have been men
tioned as offering available Congres
sional timber: George Crum, of Lewis-
ton: Charles II. Hietman. of Rathdrum:
James H. Ailshie. of Coeur d'Alene, and
II. H. Taylor, of Sandpoint. have been
considered as gubernatorial prospects,
while other men almost of equal promi
nence have had their names linked with
Mr. Defenbaeh's Name Mentioned.
Included for state offices is Byron
T. Defenbach, of Lewiston. who. in the
last primary campaign, was an un
successful candidate against O. V.
Allen, defaulting State Treasurer. The
ifrlends of Defenbach have let it he
known here that he will probably be
a candidate for Lieutenant-Governor or
State Auditor, probably the former, but
he will not be a candidate for either
if it will interfere with the prospects of
ny Northern candidate for Governor.
The North now has a Justice of the
Supreme Court in William M. Morgan,
of Moscow: Secretary ' of State in
George R. Barker, of Sandpoint: Lieutenant-Governor
in Herman H. Taylor,
of Sandpoint. and Miss Rernice McCoy,
State Superintendent of Tublic Instruc
tion, a former resident of Lewiston.
South Has lO In Office.
The South, on the other hand, has
toth United States Senators in William
E. Borah, of Boise; James H. Brady,
of Pocatello; both Representatives in
Congress in Addison T. Smith, of Twin
Falls, and Robert M. McCracken, of
Boise. In addition, the South has two
Justices of the Supreme Court, Isaac
N. Sullivan, of Boise, and Alfred Budge,
of Pocatello. It has the Governor, in
Moses Alexander, of Boise; Attorney
General In J. H. Patterson, of Boise:
State Auditor in Fred L. Ifuesten, of
Idaho Kails, and State Treasurer in
John W. Eagleson. of Boise, a total of
en. Practically ' all of the appointive
heads of state departments also are
from the South.
If insistant demand of the North for
a fairer division of Federal and state
ofices is to have any effect at all in
the future, say party leaders here, it
will only be through concentration and
solid bacUing behind the strongest men
who can be brought out.
Klection hy North Possible.
It may not be as impossible as some
of. the Northerners think for them to
secure this division, it is asserted. In
fact, some of the party leaders here
believa that if the North, for instance,
stands solidly behind candidates for
Representative in Congress. Attorney
General.; Justice of the Supreme Court
and possibly Secretary of State, . it
might be able to secure the recognition
. it is so insistent on, and not only nomi
nate but elect them.

MOLALLA, Or., Oct. 23. (Special.)
Mrsj Nancy Engle, who died here Sat

original settlers of this section. ' In
company with her parents, she crossed
the plains in an emigrant train in 18E2.
She was 14 years old, having been born
in Pike County. Illinois, in 1838. On
the trip across the plains she lost her
mother, who was stricken by cholera.
On November 16, 1854. she was mar
ried to Samuel Engle, who passed
away March 1, 1902. Born to this
union were six children, all of (Whom

grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
Children and grandchildren
and great-grandchildren all live here.

publication contains 60 pages, most of
which are devoted to well-written

Many of the articles are contributed by
agricultural experts of the college fac

The publication is supported by the

jacks, gins, shears, etc., powers and
arrangement of different types of
tackles, identification of the various
types of war vessels, etc.
The orders issued by Colonel Lud

a most important and advantageous
departure from the usual routine. Ar

those who have qualified in gunnery

wireless telegraphy, telephony,;, type

neering, surveying, firing and care of
boilers and electrical wiring, . Compe
tent instructors have been selected for
each of the above courses.
All of the above subjects will be
taught by enlisted men under the su
pervision of officers of the post. The
fact that competent instructors can
be found for the numerous technical
subjects listed above is not at all sur
prising when it is noted that every

their own wireless, complete telephone
Installation, clerical departments, ba

The thoroughness of the training of
the United States coast defense troops

have the greatest technical skill known

MAXIMUM LEVY IS FACED
Marshfleld May Be Assessed 20 Mills
Because of Saloons' Exit.
MARSHFIELD. Or.. Oct. 23. (Spe
cial.) Through the loss of saloon li
censes in Marshfleld the City Council
finds it must levy taxes for 1916 to the
amount of $41,000, making an advance
of between 5 and 6 mills. The as
sessment has not been definitely deter
mined, but it will not be less than 18
mills and probably will be 20, which
would be the maximum the Council
could levy. The loss of revenue owing
to prohibition is Jla.OOO.
There will be a floating indebtedness
at the end of 1915 of approximately
$10,000 and if the 20 mills assessment
is made this could be wiped out in 1916
the Council believes. The appropria.
tions for 1916 are estimated as fol

LA GRANDE. Or., Oct. 23. (Special.) To hark back to pioneer days
of ox teams has proven a source of entertainment to Edward Mor-
rison, well-known Holsteln herd breeder of this valley. He has taught
two six-weeks-old Holstein ) calves to take to the yoke, and at the
county fair, where he had a big Holstein exhibit, the calves were
big attractions. Although young, they haul Mr. Morrison about, on
good roads, in a small wagon, and obey "Gee" and "Haw" with
marked promptness. Reports from the country points tell of many
boys trying to emulate .the dairyman since seeing his ox team turn
out at the fair.
