The law requires candidates for
judges of the district court and

So far there are four filings of rec
ords for judges of the district court
They are as follows:
Albert H. Featherstone of Wal

of the first district, incumbent.
H. E. Wallace of Caldwell, demo
cratic candidate for judge of the
seventh district. Judge Bryan, in
cumbent. Charles L. Crowley of Idaho Falls,
republican candidate for judge of
the ninth district; Judge Gwinn of

BOISE, Idaho, June 17. (Special.)
While it seems generally
accepted in political, circles in this
state, both republican and demo
cratic that C. C. Moore of St. An
thony, who a week ago announced
his candidacy for the republican
nomination, and M. Alexander, as
yet unannounced as a democratic
candidate, will be the standard
bearers of their respective parties at
the coming election, it has developed
that there Is uncertainty among
many of the democrats as to
whether Mr. Alexander will enter
the race.
More persistently than ever is
being heard "the names of other men
prominent in the party who are
considered gubernatorial timber. Mr,
Alexander, is in the east and has
been for some time on a buying trip
for his string of clothing stores. He
is one of the prominent clothing
dealers of southern Idaho and east
ern Oregon and is probably as wide
ly known in the two states as any
other man in Idaho. His friends
say that on his return he probably
will not announce his candidacy,
leaving the selection of, a nominee
for governor up to the delegates to
the next state convention.
W. M. Morgan Possibility.
Indications of this uneasiness
come from Twin Falls, where the
Jefferson club has issued a call for
a meeting of democrats to be held
in that city next week to hear an
address by William M. Morgan, forr
mer chief justice of the supreme
court, on state political Issues.
Linked with the announcement is
the clear intimation from Twin
Falls that a movement has been
quietly going on there for some time
to groom Morgan for the guberna
torial nomination. But, failing in
this, his Twin Falls friends say he
will be asked to get intp the run
ning for representative from the
second district.
Just how much factionalism there
is involved in this movement demo
cratic leaders refuse to say. It is
known, however, that there are two
factions of democrats in Twin Falls
county, one being for Alexander for
governor and the other for Morgan
or some other man big enough to
make the race, such as E. W. Van
Hoesen of Council, a member of the
state seriate. Morgan is known to
be a staunch friend of the Days,
Harry and Jerome, of northern
Idaho, who have always been active
in democratic politics.
Days Oppose Nugent Wing.
Jerome Day served for a number
of terms in the state .senate from
Latah county and was democratic
state chairman. The Days stand in
opposition to the so-called Nugent
wing of the party. That name,
however, is a misnomer now' be
cause former United States Senator
Nugent is not a resident of Idaho
but is serving on the federal trade
commission at Washington. How
ever, the faction , that followed
Nugent during his palmy days
Idaho politics is still intact. It is
composed of the younger men in
the democratic party. The clashes
between ex-Senator Nugent and
Harry Day are celebrated political
history in the democratic partfy.
Alexander always has been a
friend of Nugent and when the op
portunity came to appoint a suc
cessor to the late United States
Senator Brady, Alexander, who was
then governor, named Nugent. This
naturally was not pleasant to the
Day faction and that faction, if all
reports are true, proposes to have
something to say about what goes
on at the next democratic state
nominating convention. Van Hoesen,
comparatively a new man in the
state, having come to Idaho from
New York, is not identified with any
of the so-called factions, but is said
to have the support of the Days in
the north. He proved himself to be
an able man in the last legislature.
Democrats Want Harmony.
While there is some plotting go
ing on within the democratic party,
and not a little maneuvering for
advantage, the leaders wish to keep
down any factionalism that may
' arise, that there may be harmony
in selecting the ticket at the state
convention. They believe the party
has never had a better opportunity
to win than it has this year. They
believe that the situation is ideal
because of the state-wide complaint
over high taxes and the general
grumbling which they say is going
on over the manner in which state
affairs have been managed.
. This situation, they assert. Is ideal
for a candidate who is willing to!
go oerore the people and insist on a
reduction in taxation and who will
show his courage in vetoing appro
priations made by the legislature
Increasing the tax burden of the
people. The rank and file of the
democratic party, they claim, will
insist upon such' a candidate. The
leaders Want the, heads of factions
to forget their differences this year
and agree upon a ticket that will
command the respect of the voters
ana a set of candidates who can
stand on a platform that means
something. .
Moore's Status Is Fixed.
The announcement of C. C. Moore
as a candidate for the republican
gubernatorial nomination met with
general favor in all parts of the
state. Republican party leaders say
that the announcement definitely
fixes the status of Mr. Moore and
removes all uncertainty as to
wriether he was to be a candidate.
There is nothing now to indicate
that another candidate will get into
the running In the republican ranks
in opposition to Mr. Moore. But
that does not prevent a possible
dark horse bobbing up in the con
vetition. Unless all of the political
signs go wrong the main contest
in the republican party will be over
the nominations for the minor state
offices and over the state platform.
Many advocates of the primary
law insist that a straight out-and
out state-wide primary plank be
placed in the platform. They hope
to have sufficient delegates in the
stale convention to rorce that issue.
They claim in support of their stand
that it will be utter folly for the
republican party to go into the next
campaign unless it is pledged to a
state-wide primary, because the
people want the primary and the
democrats will declare for it in no
uncertain terms.

Resolution Adopted to Effect That
Local Advertisers Should Get
Same Rate as Outsiders.
OLYMPIA, Wash., June 17. (Spe

have no advantage In rates over the
local advertiser In Washington
newspapers If a motion adopted at
me soutnwest Washington group
meeting of the Washington State
.tress assocaition is carried when
the entire association meets at Pull
man next month.
Thirty publishers at today's meet
ing voted unanimously to present a
lesolution to the state body pro
viding that the minimum rate
charged for foreign advertising be
equal to the net rate for local ad
vertising with the 15 per cent agency
discount and the 2 per cent cash
discount added. ,
The action followed discussion of
the problem of some large foreign
advertisers placing business with
newspapers through their local
agencies and obtaining the" local
rate from which they deduct dis
counts when paying the bills. This
the publishers viewed as discrimi
natory against the local advertisers,
to whom they agreed they owed loy-'
alty first. Russell Mack, advertis

111 Health Causes Suicide,
Wash., June 17. Seattle's new scan
dal arises from the moisture of
the republican state convention at
Chehalis June 10. The horrifying
charge Is made that many of those
attending the convention, as dele
gates and spectators, were actually
under the influence of strong drink.
Two newspapers published in Seat
tle, Mr. Hearst's post-inteiiigencei
and Mr. Scripps' Evening Star, have
taken the charge very seriously.
The Star says it has been fur
nished a list of no less than 40
names of more or less prominent
Seattle republicans whose conduct
at chehalis is-said to nave Deen un
seemly to the point of being repre
hensible, and Dr. Edwin J. Brown,
Seattle's newest mayor, tells the
Post-Intelligencer that' he is go
ing to bring the whole disgraceful
proceedings to the attention of the
senators and representatives in con
gress from this state, all of whom
are republicans and,' as ISaders, re
sponsible, according to Mayor
Brown, for the' behavior of their
party constituents in convention as
sembled. If hostile gossip and unfriendly
newspaper publicity can influence
the public mind, Seattle ought Jo
be badly shaken up by these disclo
sures. However, the fact is that
Seattle is so well supplied with in
toxicating liquor at all seasons that
the picture even of an entirely
drunken convention in another city
wduld not cause much excitement
here. About the most pronounced
effect so far is among certain King
county republicans who might have
gone to the Chehalis convention
had they so desired, and who now
feel that they perhaps missed the
time of their lives.
Convention Fairly Sober.
The Chehalis convention was not
a drunken convention, and the large
delegation' from Seattle and King
county was not a drunken delega
tion. Liquor was not hard to get
in chehalis any more than it is in
any other . city of the Pacific
northwest. Many delegates took
some along with them. Thoughtful
purveyors of popular bootleg brands
added to the almost visible supply.
No one. who wished to drink had to
go thirsty, but by far the great ma
jority of, those in attendance evi
dently did not wish to drink. ' The
convention's business, in committee
and on the floor, was soberly con
ducted. Outside the ' committee
which Mayor Brown presided as
temporary chairman. It was just as
easy to get liquor in Olympia as in
Chehalis. The republican conven
tion brought about 1000 visitors to
Chehalis; the democratic convention
brought less than 200 to Olympia.
Damply disposed democrats had just
as good a time in Olympia as .re
publicans of like inclinations had
in Chehalis. There was more drink
ing In Chehalis because there were
more visitors there. The differ
ence is entirely a matter of num
bers and in no sense a matter of
comparative virtue. -.
Xo Officials Intoxicated. . -
Announcing his determination to
bring the Chehalis situation to the
attention of the congressional dele
gation, Mayor Brown Bays he has
been "reliably, informed" that cer
tain federal officials charged with
enforcement of the dry laws were
among the convention drunkards.
He also intimates that the Chehalis
liquor supply was largely drawn
from contraband .stores captured by
government officials'.
Everyone who attended the Che
halis convention knows that this is
the loosest kind of talk, utterly
without foundation In fact. " The
federal officials at the convention
had plenty to do in looking after
the interests of Senator Poindexter.
None of them was intoxicated. No
official of the prohibition forces at
tended. F. A. Hazeltlne, regional
supervisor; Boy C. Lyle, state direc
tor, and W. M. Whitney, legal ad
viser, were all absent. The impli
cation that seized contraband was
supplied to the delegates 1b .ridic
ulously untruthful. The standard
schedule of bootleg prices prevailed
throughout the session. The gov
ernment stores of contraband have
been robbed occasionally, but no
politician In the state has yet shown
himself strong enough to pry a sin
gle bottle loose with the consent of
the prohibition officials.
The business of bootlegging is
well organized. Vendors of various
brands make it a practice to be on
hand with a supply wherever
large gathering of men is to be
held. Men who like to drink and
with whom the treating habit con
tinues irrepressible usually carry a
bottle or so with them. No extra
ordinary quantity of liquor was con
sumed at Chehalis and its access!
bility is easily accounted for. The
dry law was violated quite openly,
Just as it is daily violated In Seat
tle and In every other city by those
who insist on the exercise of what
they are pleased to call their per
sonal liberties. As to such exercise
It will always be a difficult matter
to draw party lines.

one Maude Sweetman, purporting to
attribute the defeat of King county
at tne republican state convention
to the fact that Its delegates were
drunk and in such condition that
they did not understand what was
going on about them should be an
swered," said Mr. Rowland, who was
one . of the foremost prohibition
workers in the state for many years.
"This article casts a reflection
upon every member of the King
county delegation, other than four
persons named to whom reference is
made as sober, clean-minded men.
"I am personally .acquainted with
probably 20 per cent of the King
county delegation. I saw them at
the hotel and on the floor ot the
convention. Their position in the
hall was at the right of the Pierce
county delegation, and I am not
aware of seeing a single intoxicated
person among the entire - King
county delegation. Certainly no in
