IDAHO PARTY HEADS
Combination With Labor Fed
eration Held Doubtful.
NATIONAL GROUP ENTERS
Strong Bids Are Made to Obtain
Union Support Tor Coming
BOISE. Idaho. Jan. 17. (Special.)
The open flirtation of the Non-Parti-san
league with the Idaho State Fed
eration of Labor, aimed to bring about
a political combination of the' two so
that in the future they might control
political offices, both state and legis
lative, has aroused party learers here.
Whether such a combination will be
effective is counted doubtful, as it is
not believed that either organization
could hold its membership to any
given object other than the one for
which it was created.
In the case of labor the object is
to promote better labor conditions at
a higher rate of pay. The Non-Partisan
league was organized to assist
farmers in the marketing of their
produce, but it entered the political
field and there caused such confusion
that last year brought it so near dis
aster that the league, party leaders
say, now is forced to seek a combina
tion in the hope of regaining lost
The one great drawback to the
combination is the pledge of union
members that they will not be influ
enced politically nor attempt to in
fluence others. Labor has never con
trolled the political destinies of any
political party in this state.
League Has Two' Papers. '
When the Non-Partisan league en
tered politics in this state it sought
to gain control of a number of news
papers to further the propaganda
work of the league. It managed to
accomplish this aim in a number of
instapces. Two papers were estab
lished as league organs at Nampa, one
the Free Press, a daily, and the sec
ond, a weekly, the Leader.
The relationship between these two
papers later was not the most
friendly, the Leader people claiming
they were the state mouthpiece and
the Free Press claiming not to be a
strictly non-partisan paper at all.
Other papers were secured in various
parts of the state. Under the com
bination plan another paper is to be
designated for both labor and the
league, probably at Pocatello.
The state federation in convention
assembled at Pocatello during the
week was in . close'- conference with
Ray McKaig and other leaders of the
league. Open bids were the order of
the day, so far as the leaguers were
concerned. They offered labor every
thing in the form of office from
governor down, as a bait to fall in
with the league programme.
A. W. MuTr, vice-president of the
labor organization, paid tribute, to the
efforts of the league in this state
during addresses before the conven
tion. Rational Party Makes Bid.
The national labor party had its
representatives on the ground and
made a strong bid for the Idaho state
federation to affiliate with it.' The
national party is the outgrowth of
the action taken by the Chicago fed
erations, later indorsed by the Illinois
state federation, to form an inde
pendent national . labor organization
and bring into it all state federations.
Irrespective of the activities of the
labor federation and the league, the
two old parties are proceeding along
without interruption and expect to
have their machinery perfected soon
for the coming campaign. Within a
short time the state central commit
tees will issue calls for state conven
tions to elect delegates to the na
The last legislature repealed the
state-wide primary law and passed as
a substitute an act which contains a
Qualifying clause, which it would
seem bars the leaguers from entering
the republican party, at least. This
qualifying clause is to the effect that
where voters are challenged at the
election they must produce a certifi
cate from the county chairman show
ing prior affiliation with the party
for whose candidates they intend to
Primaries Are Affected.
This applies to the primaries. Not
having affiliated with the republican
party at the last election the leaguers
will find it difficult to qualify. They
will not have the same difficulty in
the democratic party, having voted
the democratic ticket at the last gen
Leaders in the two old parties are
giving more attention right now to
the presidential situation than they
are to state politics. It is safe to say
that the republican party will be
guided in selecting and instructing
its delegates to the national repub
lican convention by Senator Borah.
Many of the party leaders declare
that the Idaho delegation should be
instructed ofr Senator oBrah and that
the latter should be made a member
of the delegation which would give
him privileges on the floor of the
convention he could not acquire other
wise. With the approach of the campaign.
Republican party leaders are in close
communication with Senator Borah
and are being guided by his suggestions.

Vigorous Speech Made in House in
Defense of Anti-Strike Clause
of Railroad Bill.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU,
Washington, Jan. 17. In a 30-minute
speech in the house late . this after
noon Representative McArthur made
a strong: plea for support of the anti
strike provisions ot the pending: rail
road bill. He spoke from the shoulder
and did not mince matters in criti
cising: the railroad machinists for
their recent threat to call a strike in
the event of anti-strike legislation.
Mr. McArthur'a remarks were heard
by a large number of his colleagues,
and he was frequently applauded.
In a statement made to The Orcgo
nian tonight Mr. McArthur said:
"I have studied the pending legisla
tion from every angle and have con
cluded that it is my duty to support
the anti-strike provisions of the bill
now in conference. I have weighed
all the arguments pro and con, but the
one determining factor was the direct
challenge to the government by the
"If these men hold themselves above
the legally constituted lawmaking
machinery of the country it is time to
show them the error of their way.
There are many sound arguments in
favor of anti-strike legislation, but
the action of the machinists con
cluded the matter in my mind. I
hope the house will have an oppor
tunity to vote on this important ques
tion, upon which trie senate has al
ready displayed its courage and patriotism."
