Murphy, Alex Norry and Eva Inman against the trustees of School District 8 of this county, deny ing the writ of mandate asked for in the complaint. The court finds that the plaintiffs are not entitled to the relief asked in the complaint and alternate writ of mandate and denies the writ on condition that the trustees dili gently proceed to repair the dam age to the Ferrell school house a,nd resume the school. The court finds that "the trus tees of said school district No. 8 are willing and were willing to re-establish the school at Fer rell, Idaho, without unecessary delay: that it never was the in tention of said defendants or either of them to permanently move the said school from Fer rell, or abandon the same and that the same was temporarily properly removed therefrom and a temporary n account of Hie building being flooded during I he month of January, 1918." 't he plaintiffs were represented in Hu' proceedings by Attorneys closed and Hi school established E. N. LaVeine and William D. Keeton, and Attorney N. D. Wer appeared for Hie défend ue He ants. WHERE DO YOU GET THAT REPUBLICAN STUFF? Our esteemed contemporary, in Ibis week's issue states that a "study of 1910 election returns show' Idaho is a republican slate." We arc at a loss to know bow this extremely momentous decision was a,rrived at in view of the fact that live out of the eight state offices are hold by democrats and a total of the county officials of the 41 counties of the stale shows that an over whelming majority of these are also of the democratic persua sion. In view of the fact that the article in question slates lha,t a ticket "that appeals to the rank and file is the logical ticket" the following tabulation of the legis lative and county officials of the slate will prove of interest: Dem. Rep. Office Senator Representative Clerk Sheriff Assessor Treasurer Attorney Judge Superintendent Surveyor Coroner 20 IG :tc 29 24 17 26 15 20 21 09 19 24 17 18 23 24 17 17 17 18 22 Commissioners 75 40 324 The discrepancies between the totals and the actual number of county officials are caused by the fact that a few of the officials were elected on Hie progressive and socialist tickets. From all indications it would seem the chairman of the repub lican county central committee ha,s again allowed his partisan ship to warp his judgment. 259 The Presbyterian church has invited Rev. W. M. Driver to be-1 gin evangelistic meetings begin ning March 3. Mr. Driver was head of the Volunteer Mission in Spokane and founder of the Rig Sunshine Mission in Denver. F. H.

NUGENT IS CANDIDATE FOR SHORT TERM United Stales Senator John F. candidate to for Hie short This un authorized Nugent will be succeed himself term senatorship. nounccinent through cluse confidential friends lu whom he has communicated a is Hio fact, lie makes it plain to them that it lias never entered his mind lu run for any other office than Hie one he now holds. It is understood ho has made it equal ly a.s plain that he would consider it a breach of party and political etiquette to attempt to run for any other office than the one to which he was given a recess ap pointment and which in the pres ent instance constitutes Hie short or unexpired term of the late Senator James H. Brady. "You can state with authority that Senator Nugent has formally notified his friends here he will be a candidate for the short term for United Stales senator or, in other words to succeed himself to (lie same position which he now holds and to which he was appointed," said one of Senator Nugent's close political friends and advisers, say that at no lime has Sen ator Nugent considered running for any oilier office tha#i the one to which he was appointed, for he considers that, having been so "You may also appointed to fill the vacancy, he would consider it quite extraor dinary for him to switch and run for the long term, when he is in reality holding the short term at the present lime." The announcement making plain the altitude of Senator Nu gent with regard to the short term is made to settle definitely, it is understood, reports thaj, have been persistently circulated over the slate Huit be was con sidering running for the long term, thoreb. abandoning the short term to which ho was ap pointed and switching as a can didate for another office. The term of the late Senator James U. Brady does nut expire until 1921, or a period of six years from the time he look of llce. His death occurred la^t month. The last legislature authorized the governor to fill such a vacancy by appointment. The attorney general held the appointment held good under the law until the next general elec tios when a successor could be elected. Exercising the authority vested in him by law, Governor Alexander appointed Senator Nu gent to till the recess vacancy, James II. Hawley was a candi date for the appointment. After it was made he stated he would be a candidate for the short term senatorship, or for the same of fice to which Senator Nugent has been appointed. In political circles unusual interest was aroused by the announcement. Mr. Hawley had, shortly ajter Senator Borah announced he would not be a candidate to suc ceed himself, that he would be a candidate for the senate, the im pression going out Hint he would be, a candidate for the seat held by Senator Borah. Senator Borah reconsidered his announcement and it is understood will be a candidate to succeed himself. It is said to bo likely that an adjustment of the senatorial controversy will be attempted and that Mr. Hawley will bo in duced to run for the long term senatorship, leaving Senator Nu gent free to be a candidate to succeed himself. ALLEGES DESERTION; ASKS FOR DIVORCE Nannie L. Greek, by her attor ney, William D. Keeton, has Hied an action in the district court for this county asking for a di vorce from her husband, Frank C.
