has entered suit In tho district court of
Twin Falls county. A condemnation suit
was entered and the court has ordered
appraisers appointed who will set a value
on the property to be condemned. Part
of Ihe land condemned In the company's
complaint is School land belonging to the
State, and consequently the State of
Idaho will be drawn into the case as a
This matter has come up a great many
times in the couria for the reason that
the Clark faction has fought bitterly to

destroy tho beauty of tho falls to have
the water diverted for generating power.
As the dams and power plant aro at pres

has been suffered by taking away from
the beauty of the. falls.
The construction crew of the Minidoka

work of laying the rails of tho Twin Falls

WASHINGTON. D. C.f July 21. The

work now being done on the lime-phosphate
deposits In Idaho, Oregon and.
Utah affords an opportunity for a do

that will bo used to great advantage by

F. B. Weeks, of tho Survej-. who made
a preliminary study of some of the work

southeastern Tdaho. southwestern Wyo

that further exploration will show these

PROTECTING PUBLIC LAND
Government Doclares It Has Not Aban
doned Prosecutions for Fencing.
WASHINGTON, July 21. In a state
ment issued today, Acting Secretary of
the Interior Woodruff says prompt action
will be tP-kcn wherever cases of Illegal
fencing of public lands aro discovered,
but I hat inspectors and special land
agents are especially occupied this sum
mer with preventing fraudulent acquire
ment of public land. The statement fol
lows: "Mv attention has been called to arti
cles In several Western papers to the
effect that tlie Department of the Inte
rior will not prosecute any Illegal fonclng
this year. It would bo unfortunate that
such an Idea should get abroad, but it is
not true, nnd If any depended upon It.
thev might get Into serious trouble. I
might explain that the special agent forco
of the general land office and the special
Inspectors of the Interior Department will
be especially occupied during tho summer
with the more paramount and Immedkito
duty of protecting the public land being
acquired contrary to law. For that rea
son few of them con be detailed to search
specifically for Illegal fencing."

Democratic State Chairman,
Looks, However, for a "Citi- 'H
MORMONS ARE ANXIOUS ' H
TO BEAT AMERICANS' H
Many Will Vote Any Ticket, He
Says, to Bring About
That Result. H
That tho Democratic party will noi
"fuse officially'' with the Republican
(Smoot) party in the city campaign
was tho opinion expressed one daj last ;H
week by Lyman R. Martincan, chaiT
man of the Democratic State commit-
"I look." said Mr. Martineau, "for.
a straight Democratic ticket in tho falli
campaign. Speaking from what I soe, U
should .iuage that there would be three"
tickets in the Held the Americnn tick-i
ct, the Democratic ticket and a citizens'.
ticket. This citizens' ticket will, in alii Hl
probability, be engineered by the I?e-,
publicans, but I shouldn't bo surprised,
to see some Democrats support it. That'
is a thing 3'ou can't prevent, espociallv'
if the Democrats in question think that'
is the best way to defeat tho American"
Hope of Democracy. lMM
41 Under . such circumstances," co.n-. jH
tinued Air. Martineau, "a casual ob-,
server might say that, the Democratic
ticket would be hopelessly beaten iu ad-' jH
vance. Personally T don't believe that.
I think thero are a whole lot of "Re-
publicans in this town many of them ll
who have hitherto been identified with ijM
cither the American party or the local.

of the warfare between the Republican jH
machine and the American party and.

as a means of escaping from a con-' ,H
diet which has embroiled the wholm -H
Stale in a fight which is mora personal, 'H
than political. With tho support, oil,
such men we would stand a good chance
"Even, however, if tho Democratic .H
ticket, were foredoomed to defeat, V
would favor placing a straight Demo- tH
cratic Ticket in the iield, and going'
duwn the line for Democratic principles.,
There is no reason why the Democratic H
party1 should, be made a tail to any-j 'H
body's kite. A national campaign 'is
coming on, and the party should keep
itself in the best possible eliapo to carry
U'tah for our nominee for President
nest year, if that be possible."
Mormons vs. Americans.
Asked about church interference in
behalf of the Republican party, Mr.
Martineau, who is himself a Mormon
nnd a high official of one of the auxil
iary organizations of the church, said: JM
'""I think that has been exaggerated
to some extent. There is a. large class
of intelligent, thinking Mounous who:
will vote the ticket that they think
stands tho best chance to defeat tho
American party, and they will do it,
without any suggestion from 3ny Mor- (
moil leader or other porson iffauthority
in tho church.
"You will recall that after the elec
tion last fall a numbor s of leading1 r'
Deniocratis held a meeting and ap-. 'H
pointed a committee to investigate the,
question of whether or not. church in- ,
llucnce had boon used in the election.
That committee acted in good faith,1
but was unable to find anything tangi- jH
ble upon whicli to base an accusatiou
of church influence. To bo surc there
was President. Joseph F. Smith s edi-,
torial in the Improvement Era, and. the
"President Smith. 's editorial, how
ever, did not. ndvisc. ndhorents of the'
church to vote ior auy ticket or for' WWm
anv man. The Mussor letter was in
poor taste, of course, but Mr, Mnsser's-
position in tho church is such that, he. wmm
could not be accused of exerting church Wmm
