Into the fall campaign ready for a
real fight Party leadership as rep
resented In the state central com
mittee is not disposed to take vic
tory for granted in any corner of
the commonwealth. The newly
elected members of the state com
mittee, many of them veterans in
the same service, met in Seattle
this morning and by noon had per
fected the form of organization.
Charles Hebberd of Spokane was
unanimously re-elected chairman
and on his recommendation Mrs.
Emma Smith evoe of Tacoma was
elected vice-chairman. Before ad
journment Mr. Hebberd announced
the appointment of Frank W. Hull
and James D- Hoge of Seattle as
secretary and treasurer respective
ly. The selection of an executive,
finance and other working sub-committees
was left to the discretion
of Chairman Hebberd and the sub
committee members will be named
withio the week.
Full Attendance Brought.
The state committee meeting
brought out a full attendance. Of
the 39 counties of the state, only six
were unrepresented. In addition to
the members of the state commit
tee, many county chairmen were on
hand. Among other republicans
present were Senator Polndexter.
John F. Miller, Lin H. Hadley and
Albert Johnson, representatives;
Guy E. Kelly, national committee
man, and a goodly sprinkling of
federal, state and county officials.
The temper of the meeting
showed that the state committee
men scarcely needed the warning
given by several of the speakers
against overconf idence. The con
duct of the campaign is not to be
predicated on any encouragement
derived from the meager vote cast
in the democratic and farmer-labor
primaries early this month.
The republican leaders are alive
to the fact that the opposing par
ties, aside from having no import
ant contests to bring out a vote in
their own primaries were so anxious
to defeat Senator Poindexter that
they invaded the republican pri
maries in large numbers.
Rival Vote Is Increased.
The reversion of these voters to
their original anti-republican type
means a considerable increase in
the democrat and farmer-labor vote
over the primary showing. The re
publican state committee will pre
pare for that event and will labor
to bring out the normal republican
vote of the state, which has always
been sufficient to insure success.
Representative Miller predicted an
opposition campaign that will be
to per cent democrat, and 80 per
cent demagogic. He noted the im
portant committee places of the
present house delegation. Hadley,
on ways and means; Johnson, chair
man of immigration; Summers on
public lands; Webster on interstate
and foreign commerce; himself on
military affairs; all matters of vital
interest to the state. Miller scored
Dill for having in congress ,done all
in his power to hamper the nation

Representative Hadley declared
the republicans should welcome
fulfillment of the democratic threat
to bring a flying squadron into the
state. He touched on Governor
Cox's advocacy of the league of na

servant have a try at it."

DEBATE PLANS -FIZZLE
Republicans Want No Vaudeville
and Democrat Refuse to Take
to Press or Argument.
BOISE. Idaho. Sept 30. (Special.)
A public debate, either In the
pre6-or on the rostrum, between
the republican candidate for gov
ernor, C. C. Moore, and the demo
cratic candidate for governor, M.
Alexander, will not take place.
Republican state headquarters re
fused the invitation of the demo
crats to meet in debate on the plat
form and the democratic state head
quarters declined the invitation of
ths republicans to hold a debate In
the press. Both candidates have
taken to the stump with renewed
Will H. Horntbrook, democratic
state chairman. Issued the original
challenge to bring M. Alexander and
C. C. Moore on to the public plat
form for a Joint debate. I. K. Nash,
state chairman, declined to accept it
and In his letter of reply said;
"It was our hope, as expressed by
our candidate at Shelley, to have
throughout the campaign in speeches
and literature, a discussion of facts
Instead of catch-phrases, half
truths and distorted figures. You
suggest to us what in this day of

in campaigns is obsolete a plat

vaudeville. You ask our candidate
to meet yours in a speaking con
test, knowing full well that we are
putting forward a man of action
and sympathetic understanding of
Idaho's needs, not a maker of pretty
Debate In Papers Suggested.
State .Chairman Nash thereupon
proposed a. debate in the newspa
pers, allowing each candidate space
to present facts and figures and
propound figures, but this the demo
crats refused, holding that such a
plan would not be satisfactory, as
the editor of the paper would have
the power to dictate the amount of
space, what could or could not be i
published and to change the copy.
The debate episode having there
fore been closed with both sides un
der the belief they have come out
victor, the attention of electors has
been turned to a series of open let
ters which John D. Robertson, head
of the state taxation bureau, has
addressed to Mr. Alexander, the
democratic candidate. Mr. Robert
son charges that Mr. Alexander has
singled him out for ridicule1 and Is
making false statements on the
stump regarding his department.
One of these statements, he sa d. Is
as follows, quoting Mr. Alexander:
"Tou have probably seen Mr.
Robertson. He has charge of the
bureau of taxation. He gets 3ST.700
for two years to go over the state
of Idaho and tell you people your
taxes are too high as though we
didn't know it."
gtatrarmt la Challrmgea.
Answering this statement Mr.
Robertson says in his open letter:
"Mr. Alexander, why can't you tell
"You know I don't get any uch
sum. For the two years the total
cost of my department will not ex
ceed $9000. This is only one of the
rank statements you -are making.
You are In the habit of offering
$1000 to any one who will disprove
a statement made by you. I aocept
your challenge and will forfeit
$1000 If the above statement con
cerning me is true. I ask that the
following gentlemen be named to
decide who is right: J. W. Robinson,
ex-mayor of Boise; E. Van Deusen,
state auditor under your last ad
ministration, and Howard Snell,
democratic candidate for state audi
tor. These are three honorable
men, three democrat and three of
the best accountants In the state.
If they decide that your statement
regarding me Is correct, my thou
sand dollars goes to the Salvation
Army fund If they decide your state
ment is false, then your thousand is
paid to the same charity."
Alexaader Held Correct.
The ink on this letter had hardly
cooled when ex-State Auditor Van
Deusen, mentioned as one of the
judges blamed by Robertson, came
out with a statement contradicting
the latter and saying Mr. Alexan
der's figures are correct.
"The Robertson statement Is so
manifestly untrue and so clearly in
tended to mislead the voters that I
desire to correct Mr. Robertson as
to the records maintained in his of
fice. The plain facta of the matter
are that the bureau of budget and
taxation is listed in the statehouse
as one department, the directing
heads of which are the state tax
agent and the state budget officer.
Mr. Robertson very cleverly at
tempts to segregate his own per
sonal expenses from those of other
employes. Including the salary of
the state budget officer, in order
to make It appear that ex-Governor
Alexander misrepresented the fig
ures. The total sum quoted by Mr.
Robertson as given out by ex-Governor
Alexander is $27,770. I have
no means of knowing from what
source he obtained this total, but
It is quite clear te the averaae
reader that be referred to the ex
pense of the bureau. In view ef
this. It is my opinion that Mr.
Robertson owes to ex-Oovernor
Alexander a public apology."
Offer ef aiooft staada.
Robertson came back In reply to
the Van Deusen statement, saying:
"I have no more to do with the
budget director than I have with
the secretary of state, nor has
the budget officer with my depart
ment. We occupy adJoinUg offices
and In the Interest of economy we
use' the same clerk and the same
typewriter and calculating machine.
In stating that 1 will not spend to
exceed $9000, I am charging my de
partment with one-half of all ex
penses since the department was or
ganised. It is plain to be seen
that Mr. Van Deusen has not heard
Mr. Alexander's speech. When Mr.
Alexander publicly states he did et
say it. then It will be time enough
for me to consider making an apet
ogy. In the meantime my offer ex
$1000 still stands."
Kx-Govertflr Alexander Is now
making the charge that the preseat
republican state administration will
leave a deficit amounting to
