The political situation ln Idaho was discussed, but as to any par ticular topic touched upon Mr Brady was silent He was Introduced to the Presi dent, by Senator Heyburn. Referring to tho Idaho Legislature and the statement made by former Governor McConnell regarding tho Senate commit tee hearing the Smoot case, Mr Brady said: "Ex-Governor McConnell'B words could not havo applied to any legislative body In recent years, and I do not thing the Governor intended them to so apply. There Is assembled today ln Bolso as splendid a body of men as can bo found anywhere In tho United States " Governor McConnell Is worried over tho action of th Idaho Legislature ln adopting tho resolutions yesterday denouncing his statement made before tho Senate com mittee which reflected upon the morals of that body. The resolutions were printed hero today. His play for the hierarchy before the committee on Wednesday he has discovered was too broad and today ho voluntarily appeared before the com raltteo and floui.dered worse than before.

He maintained that his remarks only applied to the Legislature of 12 His testimony of Wednesday was as follows: "I find that the Mormon members who wero there were a different type of men than the average Gentile. A great many of tho Gentiles were practicing the science Of what we c-aU 'poker' out In that coun try during the night and sometimes day time. I found the Mormons clannish. They seemed to stay by themselves, and my business as a lobbyist took ni around wherever I could find the menders "I nover found any of the Mormons either drunk or gambling I will admit that I had a prejudice against the Mor mons at that time, owing to their pecu liar Institution of polygamy, and I was rather surprised to find that they were really more moral In their behavior than the other members." Thero were several Interesting features In the Smoot hearing today Two mem bers of the Mormon church told the com mittee that they had token the endow ments In the endowment-house, and while they could remember distinctly a portion of ono of the obligations, which they gava the committee, they refused to answer the, questions regarding the remainder ot th obligation or anything else In connection with the. ceremonies These witnesses ivero Hugh M 1'ougall, postmaster it Sprlngv II le, and Arthur A Noon, Justice of tho peace at Provo.

The extent of this pro ject is compared with the transcontinental lines connecting New York with San Francisco. That portion of the project relating to Peking and Hankow Is still ln abeyance, but the French view appears favorable to combining the Interests so as to make a continuous route from the capital to tho great emporium of the south. That portion relating to the Hankow Canton railroad Is considered to have be n closed by tho transference of the in b r its of which the personal holdings, of King Leopold mako up tho largest part, to M r Morgan Tho concession of tho Hankow-Canton railroad was originally American and then passed under Belgian control. The line Is about 1200 miie3 long and the extension to Poking will be about 1400, a total of 2800 miles without counting the extensb.o spurs tow d Klao Chow and Tien Tsln and Shanghai Thero Is much native agitation against foreign railroad enterprises and the au thorities may interfile with the proper development of French, Belgian and American Interests Tho native opposition Includes Chinese capitalists, who are In terested In tho earnings of the railroads. These have combined wlLn tho Portuguese on the line from Canton at Maoko.
