An experiment was tried. The hen was

left the place, clucking cheerfully. She
had left upon a lounge an egg the size

In many respects this Is to be by far tho
most Important meeting tho Democracy
of the State ever held.
The greatest Issue Js what shall bo
done with the Mormon problem!
In Its resolutions at Welsor, tho Demo
cratic State convention of Juno 5 served
notice on the Democrats of tho State
that the delegates to tho Lowiston con
vention should be selected with a view to
giving duo consideration to the absence of
certain laws from the statute books of
Idaho, pertaining to tho prkcllco of big
amy, polygamy and kindred crimes, which
the constitution of the State gives the
Legislature the right to enact This in
junction is to be met on August 15 by the
Democrats of Idaho.
Agitation Against Mormons.
It makes no difference that there aro
moro than 10,00) out of GO.OOO of the en
tire vote of tho Commonwealth of Idaho
members of the Mormon church, and that
this agitation Is directed toward the Mor
mon church chiefly upon the statements
of President Smith of the Mormon
church, In his testimony before the Com
mittee on Privileges and Elections In tho
Smoot case at Washington last winter.
During the somewhat heated discussion
attending the passage of the resolution
in the Welsor convention, Senator Du
bois mado the open charge that William
Budge, tho would-be dlctutor and repre
sentative of tho Mormon church in south
eastern Idaho, would not be as much In
evidence In the future as hajjad hi tho
past, and that oifi oflne reasons therefor
was "that the bishop hud four wives."
The reference to his "private affairs"
se2imd to ruflle the lro of the bishop, and
later. In the Capital News of Boise, he
made response to tho Senator, correcting
what he termed his "wild statement," and
avorlng that ho "had but threo wives."
The deduction, for tho purposes of this
letter, 1b that very few persons Indeed
knew, outside the homo of William
Budge, that he was still living in the
state of polygamy, although he sat In tho
Senate of the State of Idaho and had
been a prominent figure at many of the
gatherings of tho party to which he be

around which this fight centers. Ho will

that tho result must be determined In tho

party, and dovoto his entire time mean

"I had read, stories about the St. Louis

Is tho brine In the. breeze."
has supplied to Its thousands of visitors
this .season has worked a revolution In
the opinions of tho general public re

reports of tho weather bureau have proved
that St. Louis has been grossly libeled.
Comparisons show that this city has, had
pleasanter weather throughout the sum
mer than many other cities which arn
supposed to' be more favorably located.
Although great crowds of visitors from
all Over tho United States and from for
eign countries have been In St Louis since
the opening of t,he. World's fair, there
havo been no heat prostrations In the
The. maximum record for St.. Louis thus
far -this summer was 93 degrees, ' on July
1C. , Tho avoragc temperature for July
was 75.5. which is a fair" speclnion of
Eastern summer resort weather, Phila
delphia temperature went as' high as DC
degrees In July, and the coolest day was
82, while at St. . Louisl tho mercury went
down, to 01 on two days.
Thus far In August the days havo
been cooler than In July. Wraps aro car
ried generally by thoso who go out In
the evening. On tho Pike at night one
may see thousands of womon wearing
light coals. The World's fair Is now In
the-height of its beauty and charm.
Those who remain away until later In
the season because of the fear of heat
are under a most erroneous Impression,
for the man from Connecticut was right
when ho said that all St. Louis lacks of
being a seashore resort this summer Is
tho sea breeze.

The Russian squadron which con- 1 lH
fronted Admiral Togo refused battle. ! Ijl
It was stronger than Admiral Togo's jH
squadron in battleships and armored iH
cruisers and had it elected to fight the iH
result might have altered the fortunes lH

The strength of the squadron which jH
opposed Admiral Togo compelled him iH
to draw vessels from the squadron - lH
under Vlce-Admlral Kamlmura and !
this left the Japanese navy powerless i'l
