r. Chas. Jackson, the Democratic
State chairman of Idaho, resumed the
stand this morning before the Senate
committee which is conducting the
Smoot inquiry. He continued his testimony
of describing the political
conditions in his State, and the influence
exerted upon them and upon the
egislatioa by the Mormons. He dedared
that during the campaign this
rear, he found the greatest difficulty
n - holding- meetings in the Mormon
counties, no one daring to accept the
wsi tion of local chairman. Open
hreats were sometimes made against
.he speakers he sent there, and received
many reports of interference
