THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 1800. of The Idaho Legislature may be called upon to elect three United States Sena tor». The Senate is divided into three classes, whose terms of office expire reepectlvely, in '91, and *03 and '95. Should one of the Idaho Senators draw the short term of '91 the Legislature Will have to elect his successor, which 'will make three elected in one session. Judge Willis Sweet has rendered a decision in the case of certain China men in Idaho county, involving their righto to a number of placer locations and the water rights appertaining thereto. Judge Sweet holds, in effect, that water is land, and that aliens can not make a valid location of a water right; neither can a citizen who once held a valid location, lease the same to Chinamen. It is now asserted, on good authority, that Mr. McConnell, of Latah, and Mr. dagett, of Shoshone, have agreed to stand by each other in the senator lal fight. The one that develops the most strength will get the support of (he other. As the count now stands MeOonhell has a slight advantange. Shoshone county is solid forClagett, while Kootenai, Latah and part of Nez Perce flavor McConnell. Both aspir ante are rushing the battle in the south, In which locality also, McConnell ap pears the most popular candidate. Elsewhere in these columns will be found a call, issued by the Boise Board of Trade, for a commercial con vention, representing every town and oity of Idaho, to meet in that city and consider the questions of vital interest concerning our growth and develop ment. For more than two years now that energetic body has been making a laudable and successful effort to pre sent the claims of Idaho aud Boise to the outside world. The effort has been ao signally successful that now with broader view', they seek to extend the field of labor to all portions of the state Idaho is a new state rich in possibili ties, wonderful in resources. Let her people work together to promote her Interests and set forth her advantages and a glomus and unprecedented devel ment will result from this concerted action. A glance over the topics pro poeed for discussion shows how com prehensive and far reaching the effort can be made in its results. The legislature will meet on Decern her 8. The governor has so proclaimed It. What a center of interests the first session will be ! The people will be all alive to the policy developed by that body. The much mooted question of state senatonblps will de settled early. The first ballot on that subject will be taken on December 16, and, on failure to elect, the balloting will continue each day until a^&bcislon is reached The people of the North are daily becoming more encouraged os they sec the growing sentiment in favor of senator from the North. A canvass of the members of the legislature shows that a malority of that body favor the redemption of the party pledge. Hourly the contest for supremacy between the aspirants for senatorial honora grows more close as the final day approaches. Each of the four principal aspirants has his supporters and will go into the legislature with marked following. It Is now recog nised to be a contest of men not of section». COMMERCIAL CONVENTION.

Whereas, Idaho was admitted into the Union of States on the 3rd day ijf July, 1890, under a constitution pr5* iously prepared and adopted by a constitutional convention of the citizens the Territory of Idaho, and ratified an election held on November 5th, 1889 ; and * Whereas, It is provided in the said constitution of the State of Idaho, that the Governor of the Stale, im mediately upon his qualifying aqd entering upon the duties of his office, shall issue his proclamation convening the Legislature of the State on a day to be named in said proclamation," Now, Therefore, In pursuance of the foregoing provisions, and by authority vested in me as Governor under the constitution of the State, I do hereby issue this, my Proclamation, designating Monday, the Stil day of December, 1890, as the daV upon which the Legislature of the State of Iduho shall convene, and the members-elect to said Legislature are hereby quested to assemble at Boise City, the Capital of the State, at twelve o'clock, meridian, on the day above named (December 8th, 1890) and proceed to organize the Legislature as provided tiy the constitution and laws now in force.

S.] this 3rd day of November, in the year of our Lord one thou sand eight hundred and ninety and of the Independence of the United States of America the one hundred and fifteenth. GEO. L. SHOUP, Governor of Iduho. By The Governor : E. J. Curtis, Secretary of State. HOW AND WHY. The Review in a late issue sums up the result of the election and speculates upon the how and why thus : The country may now expect a great deal of speculation as to whether or not the election Tuesday was a protest against the McKinley bill. Of course the partisan democratic papers will eagerly jump at the con clusion that the whole country is up in arms against the protective policy. This will do the republican cause no injury. It will tend to give the demo cracy renewed but false confidence in free trade, and lure them still deeper into the morass that Mr. Cleveland so gallantly chose for them in 1888. But there are many indications that bear out the conclusion that the McKinley banner still waves. It is contrary to the American idea of fair ness to condemn a new law before tUe ink is dry upon the statute books. The McKinley bill has not had a trial. It is unreasonable to assume that the people have condemned it. The fight In McKinley's gerryman dered district was considered by both parties the test,of the measure. While Mr. McKinley falls a few votes short of election he has come very near over coming the 3,000 democratic majority that the Ohio legislature schemed against him. He is victorious in defeat. The Farmers' Alliance it is that has caused the surprising results in old time republican states of the West. But this democratic annex was organ ized in those states before the McKin ley bill wns conceived. Take the resu'.t In Massachusetts, Pennsylvania aLd New Hampshire, certainly among the greatest surprises of the electiou. Ikies any reasonable man believe that manufacturing states would rise in revolt against a measure designed for their benefit? How did those stab's express themselves upon the Mills bill ? In Iowa and Kansan the people re belled against prohibition, and in Nebraska the same issue was tiefere the votera. Iu Wisconsin the public schools were the issue, and the whole weight of the Roman Catholic and German Lutheran schools was thrown against the champions of Americam institutions.
