Senator Fred Dubois
Is in Town.
Says Senators Will Visit
Utah Before Congress Re-
Idahoan Thinlcs the Talk of Cleveland
for the Democratic Nomination for
tho Presidency Is Silly.
flirHERE certainly will be an In-
quiry into the case of Senator
Reed Smoot In Utah."
. This Is an emphatic; declara
tion by Senator Krcd Dubois of Idaho,
who was In the city Thursday.
Senator Dubois, being a member of
the committee that Is Inquiring into the
charges against Senator Smoot, de
clined to discuss the work of the com
mittee. "Every one knows where I
stand," said tho Senator, "and of course
it Is not proper that- I should discuss
the work of the cpmmittee until that
work shall have been concluded and a
report made to the Senate. I will say,
however, that the Inquiry has not
ended. The committee will pursue its
Investigation, and before the Congress
reconvenes there will be a sitting of the
sub-committee In this State.
"No," I cannot say which of the mem
bers will constitute the sub-committee
except that I shall be here. There will
be others. The Senators are very busy
thl3 year. Several of them who have
expressed a desire to visit Utah will be
detained at home with the work of their,
campaign for re-election. Others arc
obligated to their party in such a man
ner as to prevent their coming. Some
of the members are involved in Import
ant business matters.
Committee Sure to Come. '
"Tl)cre Is no possible foundation for
the assertion that the sub-committee
will not visit Utah. Tho general com
mittee asked for time to complete Its
Investigation and permission to send a
sub-committee to Utah. This, the Sen
atp granted and directed. There is
nothing for the committee to do but to
send a sub-committee to this State to
go further into the details. As I have
said, this will be done before the Con
gress reconvenes. I do not know the
date. That has not been agreed on."
"Who will the Democrats nominate
for President, Senator?"
"I cannot say. It will be a man who
supported Bryan both in 1896 and 1900.
That I am quite certain."
"What do you think of the talk of
The mention of the former President
seemed to give the Idahoan offense. He
"That is silly. Cleveland is only be

nomination Is Impossible. He wouldn't
receive a vote from the South. The
convention would ballot an Indefinite
time before it would turn to him. Re
publicans, alone, want him nominated
and of course Democrats do not feel
like accommodating the Republicans in
matters of this kind."
"Do you know what the Democratic
delegates from Idaho will do so far as
the convention Is concerned?"
