SMITH John Thomas, chairman of the Re publican state central committee at Boise recently received the following letter from Congressman Addison T. Smith at Washington, telling how he expects to spend his time during the present campaign, and Mr. Thomas passes it on to the press for trans mission to the people of Idaho, as a matter of interest to them in account ing for the way our representative is spending his time, reads: I am receiving many letters sug gesting that I return to Idaho and participate in the campaign, and while I should greatly enjoy visiting the state and meeting my friends, I cannot justify my absence from Washington while congress is in ses sion and when important legislation ,concerning the conduct of the war is frequently and at times unexpectedly proposed for consideration. In addition, hundreds of calls by The letter c f. i , : : jl 7 telegram and lelter are continously reaching me from the fathers and mothers of Idaho, with reference to allotments njade by their sons, and concerning the boys who are sick, wounded or dying in France and in the camps and cantonments in this country, which deserve prompt and personal attention, that I had failed to appreciate the responsibilities of my position were I not here to personally render every possible attention to these requests. In no campaign heretofore for re election have I left Washington while congress was in session to look after my political interests, and I think it would be unfair to my constituents to do so during the crisis confronting the country, when every citizen es pecially those charged with official responsibilities, is expected to dis charge his duty to the country at the sacrifice of all personal considera tions. > At this time when our boys are offering their lives in defense of the nation's rights, and many of them have already made the supreme sac rifice, partisan politics should be for gotten. The one great task confront ing the country is the winning of the war, and until we are victorious the supreme thought and devotion of every man in public and private life should be to the service of his country. In ever yvote I have cast x as a member of congress since the war began partisanship or personal political advantage has not influenced me. My one thought has been to con tribute to the enactment of those laws intended to aid in bringing the war to a victorious conclusion at the earliest date possible, and to make every provision for the safety, health and comfort of the boys who are fighting our battles. | expect to con tinue to so vote during the duration of the war and until our national affairs have resumed normal condi tions. I believe that I will be sus tained in the wisdom and fairness of the conclusion I have reached to re main here where I can be of the best service rather than to neglect the duties I have assumed by returning .home for the purpose of aiding in my re-election. I should feel I am perfectly willing to leave my candidacy for re-election to the good judgment of the Idaho voters, with the consciousness of having exerted my best efforts to properly represent their best interests at the nation's capital. Sincerely yours, ADDISON T SMITH, M. C. ALLIED NATIONS Events Leading (Jp to Break Be tween Huns and the Powers of Europe. King George Sent Appeals for Peace, but Kaiser Decided That Sword Had Been Forced Into Hie Hand, and Hostilities Began. On June 28, 1914, Archduke Frank Ferdinand, heir apparent to Austria Hungary, was assassinated, with his consort, the Duchess of Hohenberg, by Bosnian conspirators at Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia, where Pan-Slavic feeling ran high. On July 23 the Austro-Hungarian minister at Belgrade presented to the Serbian government a drastic ulti matum, demanding punishment of the alleged Serbian Instigators of the trag edy and imposing, along with many other humiliating demands, the con dition that Serbia "accept the collab oration of Austrian officials in the sup pression of the Pan-Serbian move ment," and giving her weaker neigh bor forty-eight hours in which to com ply. It was openly the aim of Austria, "in accord with Germany," not only to deprive Serbia of Its political in dependence, but also to inflict a check to Russiu. From then on events moved rapidly. Serbia, on July 25, gave way to all the Austrian demands, but denied the right of Austria to ex ercise judicial authority in Serbia. Italy, before the expiration of the ultimatum, made it known that she was not in sympathy with the Austro Hungarian note to Serbia. At once diplomatic exchanges be gan between the various powers to avert the war that was impending; but, on July 27, Austria issued a note to the powers stating that Serbia's ac quiescence to her demands was un satisfactory and "filled with the spirit of dishonesty," and on the following day* July 28, Austria declared war on Serbia. Russia at once began to mobilize, and notified the powers that she would not permit the invasion of Serbia. The next (lay .Sir EdwarjJ Grey, British secretary for foreign affairs, sent peace proposals for a council of Eu rope to both the kaiser and the czar. His action was supported by France and Italy. The kniser's reply was a general or der of mobilization and an ultimatum with a twelve-hour limit, to Russia to stop mobilizing. Of France, Germany demanded to be informed of her atti tude in case of a Russo-German war. This was on July 30, and on the same day Austria invaded Serbia. On July 31 military law was pro claimed throughout Germany, and Rus sia ordered a general mobilization. Personal messages were exchanged between the czar and the kaiser, to both of whom King George sent ap peals for peace, but on August 1 Ger many suddenly decided that sword had been forced into her hand" while the and declared war on Russia, Austria was still actually negotiating with the czar. France at once ordered a general iiiobilization and Italy formally de clared her neutrality. It was plain that a general war was inevitable. The kaiser sent an ultimatum in German to King Albert of Belgium on August 2, demanding free passage for his armies. The same day German forces crossed the frontiers of Luxem burg and France, and on August 3 Germany declared war on France. On the morning of August 4 the German army invaded Belgium, which had already appealed to England to preserve her neutrality, and the Brit ish ambassador in Berlin demanded the immediate withdrawal of the kaiser's forces from Belgium, and, un able t6 obtain satisfaction, England de clared war on Germany the same even ing, to the unaffected dismay of the German chancellor, who could not be lieve that "jtlst for a scrap of paper England was going to make war."
