The annexation question came strongly to the front
in 1888 for the last time, for before another election
could take place Idaho had donned the garb of state-
hood and taken her place by the side of her sister
states of the LJnion. The movement for annexati< in did
not have as many friends in Idaho county as fi irmerly,
however, for Norman Buck, the annexationist candi-
date for congress, received a comparatively light vote.
Several causes conspired to weaken the annexation
spirit in this county, chief among which was the pro-
posed division of the county should the northern por-
tion of the state be segregated from the southern.
Then, too, the people were weary of fighting for what
seemed to be a lost cause and were apathetic in the
matter. The apparent strength of the movement in
Idaho county at this time will be seen from the vote
for Buck which is given in the official count below :

For delegate, J. H. Hawley, Democrat, 365. F. T.

The campaign of 1892 was enlivened by a county
seat contest. The little town of Grangeville had grown
int" :i -mall city and its inhabitants believed that their
town was the proper place for the county seat. The
friends of the town therefore petitioned the district
judge to order a county seat election, that the voters
might express themselves in the matter of removing
the county seat from Mount Idaho. This order the
judge granted. Had it not been for the fact that Den-
ver and Cottonwood were as ambitious for county seat
honors as was Crangeville, and were as yet afraid to
measure their strength with the metropolis of the
prairie in case the voters should express themselves
as favi >rable to removal, it it quite probable that those
favorable to removing the county seat from Mount
Idaho would have won their point. As it was, how-
ever. 470 votes were cast in the affirmative and 375
in the negative, and a two-thirds affirmative vote be-
ing necessary to remove the county seat, the project
failed. It may be interesting to note the vote recorded
in the different precincts on this question, so we here-
with present the official vote :

Grangeville, yes 163, no 11; White Bird, yes 13.

The Populists entered the political field in Idaho
county in 1892 and made a few nominations for some
^f the more important county offices. Both the Re-

publican and Democratic conventions passed strong
resolutions pledging their support toward the early
construction of wagon roads to Elk City and other in-
terior mining camps. Of course the political parties
all suffered from small factional fights engendered by
the county seat contest. The official vote was as
follows :

For president, Cleveland, 434, Harrison, 391, show-
ing that the county was not far from being equally
divided politically; congressman, E. B. True, Demo-
crat, 430^ Willis Sweet, Republican, 420, James Gunn,

the county a Republican was elected sheriff.

By 1894 the Populists had gained considerable
strength in this county and polled a much larger vote
than in 1802. All three of the parties adopted free
silver platforms. Much personality and local strife
marked the election in Idaho county. As will lie seen
from the following vote neither of the leading parties
could claim a complete victory, the count}' offices be-
ing quite evenly divided :

Congressman, J. M. Ballentine, Democrat. 430. Ed-
gar Wilson, Republican, 501, James Gunn, Populist,
170; justice supreme court, J. C. Elder, Democrat. 442.

The campaign of 1896 was as strenuous in Idaho
D unty as elsewhere throughout the Union. The Re-
publicans, Silver Republicans, Democrats and Popu-
lists held their conventions at Grangeville on the same
day. Saturday. September 19th. As was expected the
Republicans had divided on the all-absorbing question
of the free coinage of silver, the regular Republicans
adi pting a gold platform. The three remaining par-
ties attempted to effect a junction. After much con-
ference the Silver Republicans agreed to fuse with the
Democrats, the former being allowed the nomination
of the two representatives, but the Populists and Dem-
ocrats were unable to agree upon a division of the
nominations and nominated a separate ticket. The
fusion party was called the Democrat-Silver party.
At the -tale conventions the Democrats. Populists and
Silver Republicans, under the name of the People's
Democratic party, fused in nominating several officers.
[daho county Democrats presented a strong candidate

for the nomination for governor this year in the person
of Aaron F. Parker, editor of the Idaho County Free
Press. Pie was not the choice of the convention, how-
ever. On election day the silver party carried the
county by a tremendous majority, Bryan receiving
three times as many votes as were given McKinley.
The Prohibition candidate for congressman, James t.
Smith, received lo votes and their candidate for gov-
ernor, Mos.es F. Fowler, 8 votes.

The official vote was as follows: For president,

amendment to the state constitution, granting the wo-
men full political suffrage, received 427 affirmative
and 320 negative votes in the county.


The vear 1898 brought forth the bitterest campaign
that Idaho county had witnessed in years. Dissensions
had arisen in all three parties and, strangely enough,
out of it all came fusion between the Republicans and
the Populists. The platform adopted by this unusual
alliance did not mention silver, pledged the party to a
just and honest administration of the county's affairs,
pledged the party to reduce the fees and salaries of the
county officers, to improve the county's roads to the
end that the interior mining region might be more
fully developed, and denounced the present law in re-
gard to distributing liquor license monies. A rupture
between the Democrats and the Silver Republicans
was narrowly averted, the Democrats agreeing to fuse
with the latter by the close vote of 32 to 22. A- in
i8q6, fusion was the watchword of the state conven-
tions, Democrats, Silver Republicans and Populists
combining on several offices, while a portion of the
Populist party maintained the Populist party organiza-
tion and nominated a separate ticket.

With perfect weather and a vote nearly twice as
large as that polled in 1898, the election of 1900 passed
off in this count}- with the best of feeling and without
the slightest disturbance. The issues were national in
character, generally speaking, and the result showed
that Idaho county upheld the principles advocated by
the Democratic party. In Grangeville, the registration
reached 859 and 767 votes were cast, showing a mar-
velous growth in this precinct. The Democratic ma-
jorities averaged between 300 and 500. A small Pro-
hibition vote, not exceeding 25, was cast.
