John, thank you so much for your help. I was actually able to answer my own question. I found a listing in a newspaper right here on Ancestry from late May, that gave the lists of all the candidates. In that issue, the prohibition candidate for Secretary of State is listed as Rev. John W. Knott, of Soda Springs, Idaho. That would be my great grandfather, all right!

It's possible that another reason the party went down to defeat was that they were ahead of the times in more ways than one. The candidate for governor was a woman, as was the candidate for state auditor! But...someone had to be the first, I guess.

Are you by any chance related to anyone in this family? Whether you are are you aren't, I sure do appreciate your kind offers of help. If you stumble across anything else that you think I'd be interested in, let me know.
