JUDGE K. I. PERKY
SUGGEEDSJEYBURW
Governor Hawley of Idaho
Decides No! to Resign at
Last Moment. '
Special to The Tribune.
BOISK, Idaho, Xov. 3 G. United
States Senator Xirlland T. Perky, that
was the tjtlo ivon to one of. Idaho's
most distinguished jurists and Demo
crats tonipht by Governor Hawloy,
when he signed a commission that ten
dered to .Htdgc .Perliy a seat in the up
per houso of congress which for a term
and a half had bcou held by the late
Seualor Wcldon B. Heyburu. By tho
act Governor Jlawley completely aban
doned lhc plans that had been made
last nttfht to resign as governor to be
bucccedcd as chief executivo by Lieu
tenant Governor Lewis II. Swoetser,
whereupon the latter would appoint tho
governor senator.
' The appointment of a Boise man to
tho senatorship proved a reversal of
Governor JIawlcy's original intention to
sond tho toga to north. Idaho.
"United States senators were made and
uumado in Boise withiu tho past twenty-four
hours. The appoiutniont of
Judge Verity came as a dramatic cli
max to a political situation which for
a month has been boiling iu the capital
city and at last had reached fever heat.
Presmirc from loading Bopublicans from
all parts of the slate, from Democrats
and from Progressives had been brought
to bear on Governor Hawley lo resign
a3 governor and "become United Slates
senator. Lieutonant Governor Swcot
ser had come to Boise post haste to sign
his appoiutmcut, and yesterday Gover
nor IJawlcy had decided on this plan.
In a statement issued here tonight
Governor llawley reviewed tho situa
tion that confronted him with reference
to tho appointment. Jlo said tho idea
of -appointing himself became repulsive
and ho abandoned it. "I decided upon
Jud"e Porky, as I knew of no ono bet-'
tor titled to fill this difiicult position
than ho is," declared Governor Haw
lev in his statement. "A ripe lawyer,
thoroughly familiar with land mattors
and well 'acquainted with most of the
leading men of. the country, he was to
my mind tho ideal candidate.
""The locality from which a man
hails absolutely cuts no figure iu a mat
ter of this kind. Jt in a gucstiou of
fitness alone. I came to my conclusions
without tfny personal solicitation m
.ludtro Porky 'h behalf."

! COPPER I DEI!
Heavy Purchases During Past
tWeek for Export Account,'
Contracts on 173-4c Basis.
'
Special :to The Tribune.
BOSTON, Mass., Nov. 10. Purchases
of copper during 'the past week, have
run between 10.000,000 and .15,000,000
pounds. This tonnage was contracted
for on a U-cent basis and was chief
ly for export account. Following a
fortnight's "nibbling" consumers actu
ally started buying on Thursday and
concluded their commitments on Fri
day. It was tho inovitablo result of
running plants from stocks in foreign
warohouscs that finally forced the
European manufacturers lo enter the
American market.
Some November copper is yet to lie
purchased but current 'demand has been
mostly for December and January. Un
derestimating their year-end require
ments at tho lime they were last in tho
market, domestic consumers have been
picking up some of tho cheap copper
offered during the past month, but it was
not sufficient ju voluino to moot "full
requirements.

HELPS SALT LAKE
TO ACQUIRE TRADE
Plan Decided Upon Means
Extension of Service and
Betterment in General
' for Patrons.
SIMON BAMBERGER will be the
head of a' gigantic corporation
soon to be formed to tako over
all existing interurban roads
in Utah.' Tho Eccles interurban
line, e.Mending north from Og
don. and Iho Logan street railway,
including the line extending north and
south gfrom Logan are to be taken into
the new corporatioJi. A new lino south,
from HnL Lake to Ncphi, either via tbe
route contemplated by the Orem project
or independent of it, is assured. An ex
tension of the Logan street railway sys
tem north to the Jdaho lino and possibly
beyond is considered certain. Engineers
are now going over proposed interurban
lines in northern Utah and south from
Salt Lake county through Utali county
and into Juab county. Thcso are somo
of the developments of yesterday in the
situation rclativo to a complete interur
ban system for Utah. .
Still in Harness.
That former Senator Bamberger will
head the big new interurban corpora
tion was definitely decided last night at
a conference between Senator Bamber
ger a4jd M. B. Ucrcley, tho Chicago
traction oxpert who is representing
eastern capitalists in the big interurban
deal for Utah. Mr. Bamberger preferred
to retire from active husincss with the
transfer of his interurban lino "between
Salt Lake and Ogdcn to the new inter
ests represented by Mr. Iforcley, but
Mr. llereley insisted that he remain as
the active head of the new corporation
for at least one year. The Salt Lako &
Ogden railway is an important link of
the proposed chain of interurban rail
roads, and his position as the builder
and principal owner of this lino makes
him the logical head of the new corpor
ation. Air. Banfocrgcr-'s standing in
the community, and Iho confidouco
which the pcoplo of the stato have in
him makes his position at the head of
the now corporation a valuable asset
to the proposed corporation. It also
gives the assurance that tho big intor
urbau system is not merely an exploi
tation but a substantial reality.
Definite Decision.
Tho tiiklng over of the Keclcs sjstcm
of inlerurban lines, including the elec
tric lino from Ogden to Brigham City
and the Logan street rullway with Its
extensions north and south from Logan,
was discussed at length at a conferonco
yesterday afternoon between Mr. Ucrc
ley and David Eccle3. Mr- Jlorelcy will
meet Mr. Eccles in Ogden again Mon
day and the two will probably go over
the Keeles lines. Relative to his con
ference with Mr. IScclcj?, Mr. llereley
said last night at the Hotel Utah:
"I had a conference with Mr. JSccles
this al'ttrnoon and expect to see him
again Monday. We discussed tho Inter
urban line controlled by Mr. Eccles In
some detail."
Mr. llereley declined lo say whether
or not negotiations for tho purchaso of
the Eccles lines had been concluded.
However. It may be authoritatively
slated that negotiations have thus far
progressed so favorably that there is
little doubt but that the deal will be
concluded, ir indeed U has not already
been consummated.
Spells Improvement.
As soon as the negotiations for the
purchase of the ISceles Unco arc con
cluded efforts will be made to com
plete an early extension of the two
roads In Ogdcn to perfect tho amalga
mation of the Salt Lake & Ogden and
the Ogden & TJrlgham City lines. "Work
on the extension south from Logan will
be pushed to connect with the line
from Ogdcn to Hrlgharn City. In n
comparatively, sliort lime the electric
line between Salt Lako and Logan, oass
Ing through Salt. Luke, Davis. Weber.
Uox Elder and Cache counties will bo
continuous and under one management.
Knglnccrs are now surveying a pro
spective route north from Logan to the
Colorado line and over tho divldo Into
Idaho. f the engineers report that
tho proposed route over the divide Is

Mr. Bancroft statod that llio line

mining camp, sixty-five miles south of

building of the lino will begin as soon
