London, Jan. 15.—Today's meetings of the ambassa
dors of the powers was devoted to a discussion of means
of putting a brake on the threatened resumption of war
in the Balkans. Breathing tilin' was given for efforts in
this direction by the decision of the Balkan plenipoten
tiaries today to delay further action until the Turkish
government had had full opportunity for discussion of
the ambassadors' note, which will be presented this
It is quite evident that both sides would welcome the
discovery of an acceptable way to avoid further fighting.
Representatives of the allies deckin' they must protect
their own interests, especially in avoiding indefinite pro
crastination on the part of the Turks, as since the conclu
sion of the armistice in December the maintenance of the
four allied armies on a war footing has represented an
outlay of $200,000,000. They say within a week Turkey
must either cede Adrianople or lose it by resumption of
the war.
Washington, Jan. 15.—The cruiser

Washington has 270 Jackies aboard and
a company of marines. The decision
to send the warship to protect the
Americans was reached this morning
after alarming reports of the activity
of rebels under Julio Radillo were re
ceived through Ambassador Wilson at
Mexico City.
Consul Edwards at Acapulco sug
gested that inasmuch as the Mexican
commander of the town admitted his j
inability to depend it, a warship should
be sent. Radillo is operating in the!
country about Acapulco and refugees !

Washington, Jan. 15.—The house
ways and moans committee hearings on
tariff revision, which, up to the present
time, have been of a rather humdrum
character, were galvanized into life to
day, when the committee took up for
consideration "Schedule E," embracing
sugar and manufactures. From the
moment when the revision of the tariff
become a certainty it has been fore
seen by all interested parties that the
sugar schedule would present one of
the most difficult problems on the en
tire list. To avoid arousing the ire of
a largo section of the south and west,
and at the same time act in consistence
with the Democratic policy of tariff re

task that confronts those entrusted

4* (Salt Lake Tribune)
4* The most curious portion of tlie curious decision of the
4- Idaho supreme court in the notorious contempt case was
4* its discussion of the possible remedy that might be sought
•f. by the court other than punishment for contempt. The
underlying question in the case is. of course, the right of
tlie court to take vengeance upon those who criticise it,
and punish any who indulge in such criticism. The court
itself appears to have realized its doubtful position when it
said: "Should the judges be reduced to the alternative of
either submitting tamely to contumely and insult and re
senting it by force, or of resorting to the doubtful remedy «J»
of an action at law ?" «J»
Here is a most extraordinary admission to make. The 4*
supreme court of the state of Idaho considers that an ac- 4*
tion at law for the redress against contumely and insult is 4»
"a doubtful remedy." It is common enough for the laity to 4*
take that view of court procedure at times; but to have the 4*
supreme court of the state lay down possible remedies and 4*
specifically reject the idea that an action at law is a real «$♦
remedy, pronouncing it to be doubtful, and determining 4*
to take the high-handed measure of instituting proceed- 4*
ings in its own behalf, for itself and by itself, the court act- 4*
ing at once as accuser, as judge and punisher, is a decided 4*
novelty. 4*
The very statement of the case ought to show that the 4*
court is decidedly wrong: but if the court is determined not 4*
to submit tamely to contumely and insult, does not wish to 4*
resent the same by force, and considers that a remedy at 4*
law is of too doubtful a character to be entertained, the 4*
court thereby gives away its own case in pretending that 4*
its course was legal, and thereby limits itself to the old 4*
barbaric proposition that every one should redress his own 4*
wrongs. For, if a court has no other remedy than venge- 4*
fully to proceed in its own behalf against an assailant, then 4*
why should the individual citizen he expected to have a 4 *
higher standard than the court lays down for itself? If 4 *
courts are to take the law into thei r own hands, why rot 4 *
individuals? If courts can only protect themselves by the 4 *
use of arbitrary and peremptory power, if actions at law 4*
are of too doubtful an efficiency fur the use of the court, 4 *
then they are too uncertain for anybody, and we have ar- 4 *
rived at a condition of judicial anarchy. 4*
'I'lie more the procedure of the Idaho court is consid- 4*
ered, the worse it appears; and of all the arraignment 4 »
made of that court, this arraignment made by itself is about 4*
the worst. 4*
But its victims have served their term in jail, and their 4*
4* fines are being paid by cent subscriptions all over the 4 *
4' country. 4 *

Protest Against Lobbying.

nor also set the crowd on edge, al
though many were unaware of the im
port of the action.
Just as the balloting was to begin
Senator Defenbach interrupted the
president and asked that a resolution
he had presented be read. After glanc
ing over the contents of the paper,
Lieutenant Governor Taylor promptly
notified the senator from Bonner that
his request was out of order and the
matter ended.
Senator Defenbach*« resolution call

revised codes relating to lobbying. Tn
senator from Bonner objected to the
apparent efforts on the part of lobby
ists to influence the votes «>f the mem

the senatorship and believed that by
calling the attention of the Joint ses

be taken to prevent it.
After adjournment Senator Defen

lobbyists for a certain candidate were

Gooding Very Enthusiastic.
Governor Gooding was enthusiastic
in his declaration that a grand oppor
tunity is just now presented to Boise
and that the city should at once take
steps toward the construction of a rail
road w hich would give it east and west
connections with transcontinental lines,
and particularly to reap Its proportion
ate share of benefit to be secured by
the west through the completion of the
Panama canal.
Although he prescribed no particular
route he spoke in favor of a line from
Boise to Twin Falls, from which point
the object sought could be readily and
easily obtained. He asserted that the
completion of the canal meant the
building of several large cities on the
coast and increase in the population
and business of the present cities, and
declared that Boise should not pass by
the opportunity to expand with her
The fact that there are more than
15,000,000 acres of arid land in the
Snake river valley will attract attention

former governor said. He closed his
remarks with an earnest appeal to the
citizens to take advantage of the op
portunity presented, and promised to
support the project to the end.
