HAWLEY OPENS FIRE ON
NUGENT AS U. S. SENATOR
Boise, Jan. 16.—Friends of ex-Gov
ernor James H. Hawley Tuesday an
nounced that a fight will be made up
on John F. Nugent in the primaries
next summer if he accepts an appoint
ment from Governor Alexander to fill
out the late Senator James H. Brady's
unexpired term in the Unittd States
If Nugent goes to the senate this
winter he must be a candidate against
Senator William E. Borah or any oth
er candidate whom the Republicans
might put forward for the long term,
they say. But if Nugent will step
aside now in favor of ex-Governor
Hawley the latter will make a cam
paign against Senator Borah next fall.
That would leave Nugent without op
ppsition in the primaries, friends of
ex-Governor Hawley point out, and he
could be a candidate for the short
the long term in the senate."
In indorsing Tuesday the state
ments made by his friends, ex-Gover
nor Hawley said: "If I am appointed
to the senate now to fill out the un
expired term I would expect to fulfill
the promises that I have made to the
party and I would make the race for
the long term in the sénat."
Campaign for Hawley.
Dr. W. R. Hamilton of Welser,
chairman of the Democratic state
central committee; Fred Floed, state
committeeman from Ada county;
Frank Martin, Judge K. I. Perky and
other friends of ex-Governor Hawley
have met and started an active cam
paign in his behalf. They Insist that
he always has been indorsed In the
primaries by Idaho Democrats, car
rying every county in the state for
the gubernatorial nomination in 1910
against John C. Rice of Caldwell, who
is now an associate Justice of the state
supreme court. They point out that
he was nominated for governor in
1912 without opposition, leading his
ticket by thousands of votes, although
he was defeated by a small margin.

Tuesday they say:
"In 1914, Governor Hawley con
tested with John F. Nugent for the
nomination for United States senator
and carried the primaries by a practi
cally two to onfe vote apd only lost
one county in the entire state. For
the approaching senatorial contest
against Senator Borah by common
consent all Democratic leaders urged
Governor Hawley to become the can
didate, even Mr. Nugent stating he
would give him a clear field.
"Recognized Hts Strength."
"These leaders recognized Gover
nor Hawley's strength and also that it
would require a strong candidate to
contest with Senator Borah with any
hope of success. Governor Hawley
and his friends believe that if he is
to make the race against Senator Bo
rah he should have the added pres
tige of the short term in the senate,
which the appointment would give
him; that It would not be fair to give/
the appointment to some other mai
and then draft Hawley for the race
"This view was presented to Gov
ernor Alexander by one of the dele
gations of Democratic leaders who
called upon him in the interest of
Hawley. The spokesman made It
clear that Governor Hawley waB re
garded as the party leader as far as
the fight for the senatorship was con
cerned, and was perfectly willing to
make the race for the long term if
strengthened by appointment for the
ensuing 10 months; that, upon the
other hand, it Mr. Nugent or some
other man was appointed, then the
appointee became the titular head of
the party and on an equal footing
with Senator Boran and must make
the race against the senior senator,
leaving the field clear for Governor
Hawley or some other private citizen
to contest with the new man placed
In the field by the Republicans for
the short term. Upon this proposi
tion Governor Hawley and his friends
Hawley Dislike. Break.
"The whole thing is obnoxious to
me," declared the former governor In
discussing the threatened break in
the Democratic party. "I don't think
that we should indulge in politics at
this time when we are getting ready
to fight the Germans, and I do not
believe that it would be pleaBing to
the administration at Washington."
He expressed himself as sorry that
there was need to appoint a successor
to Senator Brady.
"Senator Brady stood squarely be
hind the administration at Washing
ton in this war, and no administration
Democrat could have done better, and
I tell you that there was a mighty
warm place in my heart for him be
cause of it, and I was sincerely
touched by his death."

REGISTRY CARDS DELAYED.
The executive board of the Wom

whether already trained or wishing
a course along any specified line—
such as nursing, stenography, etc.,
may be registered at any time upon

provision has been made for special
registration along the foregoing lines,
which provision is due to the preeent
great demand of the government for
I women workers.
