In Its Issue of AuguBt 10, the Po-I
B catcllo Tribune passes a hot shut !o
B J. A. Hendrlckson, president of the
H Inter-Mountain Good Roads nssocln
B tlon for tlio part he has taken and the
H arguments ho has set forth In suit;'
Bl gestlng a new route from the Utah
Bf capital to tho Ycllowstono natlonjl
H park. The objectionable feature of
B the suggested route Is that Pocatcllo
Bj -" is at once eliminated as "auto gale
BJ way" to tho park, tho road running
B" from Montpcller to Afton; thince
Bf through- Star Valley to Jackson Hole
Bj and into Wonderland.
H According to the article In tho Ida-
Bj ho paper this route ,1s entirely hn
B practicable- and could not be estab
lished except through federal aid to
the extent of many hundreds of thm
sands of dollars.
Sympathizing with tho present lo
cal movement to construct a bettor
connecting road between Cache and
Bear Lake vallles which may become
part of a national highway the Tit
buno passes the following comment
and suggests a leasable and highly
practicable route which will serve
the purpose of all concerned in this
section and as well pass all traffic
through the Qato City.
"Motor enthusiasts In Pocatello
I havo for some time been urging tho
construction of an auto road through
Logan canyon, from tho town of that
name, to the shores of Bear Lake tho
Beautiful. Such a route would bo
scenlcnlly Interesting. But a road
from Montpelter to Afton and through
the wilds of tho Jackson Hole coun
try nnd further on through tho almost
impassible mountains into Ycllowstono
park through tho southern entrance,
would bo so costly ns to preclude Its
construction except through federal
aid to tho extent of many hundreds
- of thousands of dollars..
A splendid road leads from Mont
peller, through 'Georgetown, Soda
Springs, Alexander, Bancroft, Pobble,
Lava, McCammon and Inkom to Poca

extending clear to tho park line, ore

ot six miles of macadam at state ex

It may bo safely Bald that for many

with such an aggregation of vocalists,

Killing Of Rogers
Raises Grave Point
Washington, Aug. 20. Representa
tive Norrls of Nebraska Introduced a
resolution today requesting the presi
dent to send to tho house all inform
ation he has regarding tho enso of
James Wood Rogers, a Callfornlan,
who was killed In tho Centrnl Afri
can Jungles ns the result of n hunt
of British Boldlers who wero ordered
to kill or capture him. The resolu
tion was referred to the foreign nf
fairs committee. '
Will Investigate Case.
Representative Sulzer of New York,
chairman of tho foreign committee
communicated with tho stato depart
ment and was advised that tho de
partment was Investigating tho matter
and that nil tho facts obtained would
bo furnished to tho committee.
Mr. Norrls said he regarded the
shooting as nn outrago on an Ameri
can citizen so far as available Infor
mation showed. Ho said that It seem
ed that Rogers, as nn American,
charged with offense that did not war
rant killing him, was fatally shot un
der brltlsh Ironclad orders of tho Bri
tish government carried out on Bel
gian soil. At tho stato department,
which has no direct information of
tho tragedy, It was slated that tho
houso resolution would havo to bo
mado tho basis of an Inquiry dlrocted
to tho American ambassador In Lon
don. The embassy, It was said, would
havo no difficulty In securing access
to tho report of tho British surgeon
on tho trageay.
Further Complications.
Regarding tho right of British sol
d ers to kill a poacher without trial,
officials of tho state department would
express no opinion.
Tho question reported to havo been
raised by Rogers ns ho was dying of
tho right of the British troops to at
tack him on Belgian soil, complicates
the case, though tho issuo Involved
would appear to concern Great Britain
and Belgium, nccordlng to unofficial
opinion of department heads.
If it should appear, they pointed out
that Rogers was killed In Bolglan ter
ritory and thore was any ground for
demanding redress, tho United States
might look to Belgium instead of
Great Britain for Justice, leaving Bel
gium to seok reparation from Great
Britain.
