telegram to TIE HERALD The readers of
that usually dull official reporter of de
bates the Conorcssfonal Record were very
much astonished to find in this mornings
issue the following spicy interview at
tached to some remarks of Senator Paddock
upon tho Indian question which was yes
terday under discussion in the Senate
I While the Tribune is taking no part in
the interesting senatorial fight in Idaho it
is due to its many readers that state that
they should be informed of the sentiment
prevailing in Congress in reference to the
struggle I have taken the trouble in the
last few days to personally interview more
than fifty Senators and Representatives
here upon the subject All without excep
t on expressed surpijbe that any contest so
fur u Dubois was concerned was in pro
J gress Speaker Reed says Why there can
rot be any question about Dubois can
tlicrei His remarkable personal influence
nd popularity made Idaho a state I con
less that he very strongly influenced me
Senator Platt said Why of course
the state of Idaho will select Fred T I
Dubois as its first Senator He has earned
i Jiy the most earnest faithful and intelli
gent of labor for his people Western
electors are not ungrateful He is a clear
unfratefuL cear
active brain and doubts
lUt act c brainy man no one
his election
Senator Culloai Doubt about Fred T
Dubois election Nonsense His people
are not built that way Au abler territorial
Delegate has not sat in Congress in the
last twenty years I have known him
since a boy and his record is a remarkable
one Mark my word he will be the first
Senator chosen
Senator PaddockWhom will Idaho
select Why Dubois of course I they
dont I will most regret my vote for state
hood Idaho would have been a dismem
bered territory today if it had not been
for Dubois
That the readers of THE HERALD may
fuiiy enjoy the joke they must understand
that the Washington correspondent of the
Salt Lake Tribune is also Senator Pad
docks private secretary whO while revis
ing the Senators speech for publication
got the matter mixed with his dispatch to
the Tribune published the latter in the
Congruslnnal Record as part of Senator Pad
docks remarks and doubtless telegraphed
the Senators Indian speech t the Tribune
Speaker Reed and the Senators interested
were surprised to read in the Record opin
ions reluctantly drawn from them by the
correspondent intended for publication in
his paper the Salt Lake organ of Fred T
Dubois for the purpose of influencing the
Idaho legislature to elect him as the first
Senator from the new state Like Little
Buttercup the Tribune correspondent
mixed those babies up but that the I
rantling may not be lost I give it the

BOISE CITT Idaho Dee 9fSpecial
telegram to THE HERALD The senate
met this morning at 10 am for the offer
ing of the opening prayer The report of
the committee on organization was read
and accepted This report called for the
fiection of the necessary officers of which
the following is a list Secretary M C
i Athcy Shoshone county assistant secre
tory Robert Larimer Idaho county en
grossing clerk F B Smith Kootenai as
sistant engrossing clerk Miss French of
Logan enrolling clerk Mark Leonard
Washington county assistant enrolling
clerk Margaret Reeney Bingham county
On the nomination of the candidates for
this office there was I bolt from the slate
as prepared at the caucus last night but
the attempt was a failure and tho abo e
young lady was elected
Sergeantatarms G W H Hunter Lo
gan pages Sidney Field Alturas county
W Gazzer Ada county doorkeeper P F
Callahan Elmora county janitor James
Lawson Elmore county chaplain Rev
L W Gowan of Ada countp
This is the complete slate as nominated in
the caucus last night giving tho north the
proper representation a guaranteed in the
party platform The first three officers
the most important are from the north and
the balance from the south This is a de
liberate black eye to the Statesmans idea
of ignoring the north and sending two Sen
ators Shoup and Dubois from the south
The house met this morning at 10 oclock
and after the usual opening exercises pro
ceeded to elect by acclamation Rev Mr
Bartlett chaplain All the attaches were
called t the bar and administered the oath
and on a motion by Price of Alturas a
committee on rules was appointed by the
speaker The members then drew for
seats and the house adjourned until 2 p m
At the afternoon session of both houses
very little of importance was done In the
house a motion offering the courtesies of
tho floor to exmembers and newspapers
was carried and in both the house and
the senate committees were appointed t
wait on the governor and ask him for any
communication which he deiired to submit
The committee on rules in the senate
made a partial report recommending tie
appointment of numerous committees on
the affairs and needs of the state Both
houses adjourned until 1 am tomorrow
when the governors message will DC read
i The entire action tcday of both houses i
points very strongly to the bursting of
Dubois bubble and the shelving of Freddy
by his party The action yesterday of the
Louse in electing Hunter and breaking the
slate as prepared by his henchmen showed
their feelings and the election today to
the three principal offices of parties from
the north was most convincing proof of the
feeling among the members of not recog
nizing the norths claims in the Senate
New candidates are to como in and it will
then be more difficult than heretofore to
name the two fortunate men But taking
everything into careful consideration it is
pretty safe t say that McConnell will and
Dubois wont be elected It is generally
agreed that his arbitrary policy and the
publishing of his speech in the Tribune I
killed him A man who can talk fast
enough to render a speech of a page closely
printed in an hour and a quarter talks too
fast for Idaho

OBrien cables Parnell as follows I
shrink with sorrow from taking sides
against you in the struggle which opens
such an appalling prospect of ruin and dis
grace to our cause Throughout this un
happy business I have abstained from one
word personally offensive to you and have
read with the deepest pain and disgust
some of the personal attacks made on you
And now before Ireland is irretrievably
committed to a ruinous conflict I ap
peal to you as the leader I have for ten
years been proud to follow and as a friend
for whom Jl 1 still feel warm affection can
you not see some way by which while safe
guarding your own reputation the country
may be saved from the destruction which
threatens 11
Parnell replies December 8 as follows
Had you wired prior to Saturday some
suggestion fromme might have succeeded
I is now too late for me to reserve the
seceders from the false position I shall
however be very glad to see you and con
sult with you on your arrival in Europe
OBrien replied to this today t Your
reply shows a total misunderstanding of
my message which was prompted by re
gard for your past services and I still ex
isting personal affection and with the
knowledge my colleagues in the earnest
hope that you might in consonance with
the will of the majority of the party whose
election of 1 chairman we have endorsed
find a way by which the country might be
saved from ruinous conflict The tone of
your reply leaves little ground for hope
but having regard to the horrible conse
quences to the country of a prolonged in
ternicine struggle I am still anxious to
have an interview and shall start Saturday
for France on my way to Ireland I

Annual Report on the Industrial
Christian Home
Why the Women of Utah Dont Ran Their
Legs Off to Become Beneficiaries of
This Benevolent Abode
WASHINGTON Dec Thelinnual report
of the board of control of the Utah commis
sion of registration and elections of the
Industrial Christian Home association of
Utah says the fewness of inmates of the
house is in the opinion of the commission
due to the restraining influence of the Mor
mon church and that female pride which
interprets a position in the institution as an
evidence of degraded pauperism The com
mission is also of the opinion that if Con
gress would make an appropriation to en
able them to purchase fixtures and appli
ances such as sewinir machines etc and
employ competent teachers that industrial
departments could be opened in which gins
could be taught selfsupporting vocations
The report recommends that some discre
tion be given to the commssion in the mat
ter of the admission of beneficiaries and
that they be permitted to pay their trans
portation expenses from different parts of
the territory the home by which means
they would secure large number of in
mates Regarding the success of the un
dertaking the report states that the com
pletion of the home building is so recent
that the association has not yet bad an op
portunity to demonstrate its success
