For this reversal special efforts " ere P ut forth, and it is credited to a desire to support Senator Whit .comb, who is known to be averse to •allowing the petition now- before the legislature involving the matt« i mg on Wednesday evening saving it was all off' in Boise so far as any hope of getting favorable action through the legislature It was well known that Senator Whiftomb stood in the way of allowing the people of the , Pahsimaroi any self-determina ;tion in the matter to settle their own .allegiance as between Lemhi anil Custer counties. The message re reived by this newspaper follows,! f It is said that the senator would not give liis consent no matter what happened at. home, so there was no effort at all to prevent the Squidlcum Squees front swallowing them selves," remarked one of the mem bers present in the meeting. A wire came to The Recorder be fore the time of the Salmon meet J. F. Melvin. Salmon, Idaho— Bill for the annexation of the Custer county portion of the Pah simaroi valley, in accordance with the petition of the people affected, will not be introduced at this session. Senator Whitcomb refuses to act, saying the people of the valley are not considered ant! have no redress. To taki all the valley, he says, would be stealing territory to which Leva in county has no right. Senator Whiteofb wrote to nuttier ous Salmon people explaining his po sition before the date of the receipt of the wire as above so that annexa tion became hopeless, even after the first busin'ess men's meeting so strongly favored it. One of the letters was addressed to this office, e lows. It «a published in Justice to the Lemhi county representative: Idaho Recorder. Salmon, Ida ho, Dear Sir: Roy B. Herndon and Valentine Maelzer are here from the Pahsimaroi in the in terest of passing an enabling act l'or the purpose of annexing the Custer side of the Pahsimaroi riv er to Lemhi county. I personal ly am not in favor of the hill or any such bill. However, should it be the unanimous wish cf the people or tlie representative peo ple of Lemhi county 'hat sumt in enabling act be presented and passed, of course I would feel it my duty to back the measure. I am inclined to believe that some people are inclined to get off on the wrong foot for the rea son that they do not consider and measure of otner people's selfishness. __ - - -- + * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * + I TENDOY •F <• 8- v v •: Mr. a"d Mrs. Holstead visite I ar and Mrs. I).

At that time we wen- highly indig nant and from a standpoint of Justice and iquit>. I think we had a light to so feel Now Custer county is in turmoil over Its Qouniy seat an I to me if appears that they are trying to jusgh- the Pahsimaroi clcmt nt in their «Bounty for the purpose of making any action which we may take an element in deciding its trou bles. As a matter of fact, Mr. Maelzer has frankly told me that the existing trouble in Custer county between Chplly. and Mnc kay is the reason why the people on the Custer side of the river desire to be anuexeu to Lemhi. If this is true, i do not under stand how or why they are com ing over to the Lemhi side be cause of any great love which they have for Lemhi county of the location of its county seat. Another thing. 1 believe that we would place ourselves in al mighty poor light, and especially you would place me in a poor light, if you asked m. to insist upon the passage of a measure which the people of Lemhi coun ty bitterly opposed when the measure advocated a converse theory. I positively Relieve that there r a "nigger in the wood pile" in lis propos«, :1 enabling act. i be lieve that it will result in th« creation of a new county in the near future, leaving us in a worse plight ttian we are now in. I advise that conservative -ani consistent action be taken, show ing that we have been in tile right at all times, and we will then be in a better position to protect ourselves in me future In the above, 1 have hen sim ply giving my suggestions in the matter, but, as herein stated. I will do what tlie people of my c ount«- want me t-> do, but I must *WFm be assured that they bav« given this matter careful study and desire the annexation of part of Custer county to Lemhi be fore I shall be influenced to take any affirmative action.
