Boise, Idahi. Dec. 10.-The pub

It has been Intimated by the court
that Colonel R.oosevelt might be sub
jected to the same treatment as the
newspaper men who published his
statement if he were in the state, and
prominent progressives have written
to himn urging him to meet the issue
by visiting Idaho.
The defendants demurred to tile
citation on the ground that the in
formation did not state facts sufficient
to constitute criminal conempt; that
the court had no jurisdiction because
the information was brought in the
name of the attorney geperal instead
of the name of the state and because
c the allegedl offense did not constitute
an offense under the laws of Idaho.
In ruling upon the demurrer the
t court said:
"The court will announce the con

n murrer, and the opinion will be pre

Construction of State's Law Which Eliminated Progressive Electors
From the Ticket Meets With Strong Condemnation---Party
Should Pay Fine of the Newspaper Men Who
Published the Criticism of the Judges.
Chicago, Dec. 10.--Theodore Roose- o
volt and George W. Perkins of New a
York were the leading figures' today
at the national conference of the pro- a
gressive party. n
Mr. Rloosevtelt, digressing fromn a It
prepared address, made a vigorous at- tH
tack on the Idatho supremeo court for t
its decision in tlthe recent cnmpllaign
regarding presidential electors.
Mr. Perkins took the center of t ile
stage when it tbecame known that ctr- rt
tain of hIls fellow plrgressives had s,
started a Illmvtivit itt to oust hi front ti
the national iexecutiv commlllitntee e- re
caUSe tof his former corpotrtion con- e
Colonel lRoosevelt tiook up the fight
for Mr. Perkins. Pointing out Mr.
Perkins and calling hit by itttntie. Mr.
Roosevelt declared that the New York
financier ts ontie of thi meIn ie \\was
proud to have as a fellow wovirkter int
the pirogressive paIllrty.
Latter in the day Mr. Perkins malllde
a steech in which het asserted tltt
always hie Ihod been for progressive
measures and that lie resented any
Intimation that he was merely a con
vert to the cause. n

In Idaho.
Taking up the Idaho suplrenmelt court
decision, Colonel Roosevelt said: t
"I lave been asked by J. H. Gilson,
progressivei state chairtit n itt Itdailo,
on his behalf, to present to ytiu, i n.a
few words, a concrete illustratilon in t
which the court has dltne the grenit
est injustice to the petople iand is soIei
ing to do a worse injustitr.
"In Idaho the electiol hl\\ maike

"But when it came to the progrea-e
. ive party, theyo mtade the tightest t
kind of a tight.,oonstructton. They
construed that the .progressive plarty
could not get op the ticket, beealuse,
under the resolution provitding ftr
nonminations by petitions, the hight-st
number of votes declared to the nee-
essa.ry for thie iostabisltinetnt o(f a
ticket by petition was 300 Ill tilt. caste

Not State Officials.
"They dcnclared that the electlors
were not state officials andt tthat,
therefore, the republican and denio
cratic electors celluld go on ithi ticket
unlder the provision which Iermitted
the election of constablles aind other
officers, yet they held that the pro
gressive ticket could not be nolninlited
S ity petition because the higi(st ntiuii
her of votes necessary to nominate byt ,
0 petition was 3011 for state officials.
They said the electors were tnot state

"The suprenme coiurt of the !nitedti

held that, although thley exercised a

ercised it exactly as legislators did
who elected a UInited Staltes seinalr.
So the supreme court of the natiionl
said they are not nationol otfficints
and the supremie court of Idaho said
they were not sltte officials.
