CORRESPONDENCE Expressions of Hefret by Associ tes of the Lade Senator Shoup —Other News of Interest from N&tioneil Capitol. To Nugget, from Northwest Press Association, Washington, D. C.— The death of ex-Senator George L. Shoup cast a gloom over all who knew him. Universal regret is ex pressed on every side, by Senators who were associated with him dur ing his long term of office. Senator Shoup was looked upon as the ablest representative the west has had in Washington for years. When the news of his death was announced to Senator Hey burn, he said: "I have today learned with great regret of the death of Senator Shoup, who for ten yearB represented the state of Idaho in the United States Senate. I have known him intimately for more than twenty years in the capacity of a private citizen, a public officer, and a personal friend. In all of those capacities he was a prince among men, generous and upright in all his dealings. Idaho has had no truer friend or abler representative in the past, nor can we hope that she will have in the future." Outside of his relatives there is probably no one who feels more keenly the death of Senator Shoup than Addisgn T. Smith, who was the Senator's secretary during his senatorial career; the affection existing between them was often the subject of remark here. It was more like that between father and son than the ties which ordinarily exist between those associated in an official capacity. The Senator had the utmost confidence in Mr. Smith and his judgment, and his confidence was never betrayed. Congressman French was a great admirer of Senator Shoup, and in speaking of him, he said: "It is with very deep sorrow that I have learned of the death of Hon. George L. Shoup I had learned to love him for his gentleness, his sincer ity, and the ever kindly interest that he had in young men. I ad mire and honor him, too, for the great work he has done for the state of Idaho and the Pacific coast. As an officer in the army, as governor of the territory and then of the new commonwealth, as senator for many years, George L. Shoup has proven himself loyal and true to the highest interests of those who, in this generation and in those to come, may make Idaho their home. The bill providing for the repeal of the stone and timber act has been indefinitely postponed by a vote of ten to four in the house committee of public lands. This bill has been strongly agitated for the last two or three years and it looked for a time as if it would It is a well known fact that I pass. Congressman French of Idaho, and Mondell of Wyoming, have taken the lead in opposition to this meas ure. This action by the committee kills the bill for the present and it is not likely that it will come up again soon. At the earnest request of the women's clubs of Idaho, Senator Heyburn urged upon the commit tee having charge of the statehood bill for the admission of Oklahoma and Indian Territory, that the bill be so amended as to eliminate the restrictions of suffrage on account of "sex" and the bill has been re ported with that objectionable word stricken out, so that the state will be free to confer suffrage upon the women, either by constitution or law, hereafter. Had the word sex" remained in the bill the state «< ca-eorge O.

Last year Congressman French introduced a bill providing for three public buildings in Idaho. They were to be at Pocatello. Lew iston and Moscow. The bill was referred to the committee on public buildings of the house, and reports from all the departments interested have been made to the supervising architect of the treasury, and he has prepared a report giving an estimate of the quantity of floor space desired, the quality of ma terial to be used in construction, and the cwst of the buildings, and submitted it to the house. Mr. French is working hard for his bill and is very hopeful of its passage. Pay Up Notice.
