Democratic legislator who voted for
this partial and iniquitous measnre

to believe, and could it have been

In course of time Bowers and
Miller were removed and Noggle

thus defeating the very objects of
the bill. Ballard and Kellv, who

of favored ones, continued to re

Idaho has a United States District
Court, as we are credibly informed
Judges Lewis and Kelly will both
hold that there is such a Court, while
Chief Justice Noggle has decided
that there is not. The consequence
will be a U. S. District Court in the
First and Third D strict*, and none
in the Second. Should the question
ever come before a full bench in the
Supreme Court, as nt present
stituted, of course the title will be
established as a U. S. District Court.
