AN OPEN LETTER
BY ADDISON T. 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,
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
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
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
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
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
ADDISON T SMITH,
Events Leading (Jp to Break Be
tween Huns and the Powers
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
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
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
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"
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."
