Senator Brady and Mr. Davis were partners in the banking business. By reason of j this relationship, Mr. Da * la . !^ ked after the separate business interests : of Mr. Brady in American Falls in a general way and sometimes in a spe cific way. Mr. Davis rendered this j service to Mr. Brady as a friend, and received no remuneration for it senator', ÄSÄÄ tSSt mcnt Company, a corporation ^ business* interests At M Brady's request! Mr. Davis accepted the post- ! tion of vice president of the company. Brad a y S estlte in 'wm ren- j Ä ÄÄ asking or expecting pay. Service m this capacity called for trips to Salt Lake. Pocatello. Mountain Home, Boise, and even to North Idaho, where Senator Brady had interests or in-> vestments. On such trips Mr. D® T * S , reeeived his expense«, but nothing more. In appreciation of these ser vices, and in a spirit of friendship and fellowship. Mr. Brady gave Mr. DaviB contract for free light and heat for his home. ; In view' of this relationship and this friendly service and assistance, is t it strange that Mr. Brady should offer j free electric service to Mr. Davis for J -, his home, or that Mr Davis should ac Mr. Davis did not make full use of the contract for some time, because the cost of wiring and equipment to make the service available would be more than the service was wmrth. In : other words, it would cause a financial ] outlay Instead of being a saving. Eventually Mr Davis moved out of the rear of the bank, where he had been living, into a residence which be purchased There he had a very small SENSATION MADE-TO-ORDEB FOB CA.MF AI ON PURPOSES. Snmething that Was Not Concealed Hade to Serve Purpose in a Crisis —The Whole Truth Not Told Nor Intended to be in "Ex posa re." The great secret harbored and care- fully nursed and nurtured by the Power County News, that was to anni- hilate the character and standing of D. W. Davis, was sprung Sunday, when the Friday issue of the News was mailed. Strange to say. thing guarded so mysteriously was no secret. All of the neighbors of Mr. Davis knew it. Mr. Davis talked about the matter with callers at their home and even elsewhere, received free service from the Power Company for his home was no secret. How he came to have such a service is well known, and there is nothing sen- sational about it. the That Mr. Davi* a cept it? fruit and vegetable cellar, but wholly inadequate for the installing of a fur-1 nace for heating. Mr. Davis then took advantage of his contract, had his residence wired for heat, purchased a j couple of electric heaters, which sup plied sufficient heat except in the j coldest part of the winter. The sav ing during the greater part of the year amounted to approximately $5 month, and during the winter, the approximate cost of a ton of coal a month in addition. Accepting this ser vice did not increase the cost of service to anyone, any more than the cost of service would have been increased to , the pubic had Mr. Davis charged for | the services he rendered Mr. Brady. ! Eventually Mr. Brady sold his pow - Mr. Davis went to Chi on and tei er interests, cago, and then on to Washington and New York, to assist in closing the transaction, and rendered a service that was considered of great value by Mr. Brady, transaction, but one in which Mr. Brady's interests were to be gradual-1 ly absorbed. Right on top of this j transaction came the Kuhn failure, which for a time was severely felt in j Southern Idaho. It was the Kuhn in- ! terests that bought the power plant here. The Kuhn failure brought com plications and Mr. Davis represented Mr. Brady until his interests were en tirely absorbed. Mr. Brady had made several con tracts for free service, as compensa tion for services rendered by several individuals in the settlement and up building of American Fails and vicin It was good business for him to do so. as it costs money to convey electric current from one point to an Mr. Brady wanted to use as The deal was not a cash ing the ing of ttv. other. - much of the power at home as possi ble. because it was more profitable than to take it elsewhere. There is a certain loss in transmission, and the cost and upkeep of a transmission line is a heavy one. The newspapers of American Falls had free service in the early days. The Press had free service for five years, during which time it was try ing to settle rhe vacant lands sur rounding American Falls. The Power Countv Times, and its predecessor, with which John R. Bowen was con nected. had free service during the greater part of the time those papers published, it not all the time. And there was not anything wrong about it. Mr. Brady merely took this way of assisting thoee who were work ing for the upbuilding of the commun ty I w ere ity. There were some ten-year contracts for free service, given in consideration of assistance in development. Camp bell * Stebbins had one of them, which was transferred to the Evans Mercantile Company. House had a similar contract, and so did the Hotel Remington There may , have been others. > V The Oliver ' When Mr. Brady sold the power plant he called attention to these con tracts and asked that they be carried | to their expiration. Was there any of l anyone? 8 *° doinK ' °" ^ P | The feature that is open to criticism I ! if any. is the writing of a letter to 1 Boise by a person who is neither per- ! i sonally nor politically friendly to Mr. navis, asking for an inveatigation to be made. The person who wrote' knew, as many others did, that there' was no secret about the matter. The investigation could have been made: earlier, a year ago, or earlier. But ! the purpose was to "spring" it when! it would do the most Injury, and when ; there was little time to meet it. i It was planned to make the expos ££&£ aTs mere* ly conjecture, but the "hitch" might have been the failbre of the Power County News to get out on time, to bring the very "astounding" news, so there would be something to expose A part of the auditor's report was j given out, but not all of it.
