Some Specific Cases.
Mayor J. W. Robinson and Council
A. V. Eichelberger, this afternoon
filed thçir answers to the charges made
against them In the recall petitions.
They deny In toto the charges made
and claim they were made by a cer
tain element in the city whose will they
did not obey. The answers of the two
officials are as follows:
From the Mayor.

"Not only have I not sanctioned the

Miss Nancy Robertson, city clerk,
gave notice that the recall petitions
had been filed and that the one for
Mayor Robinson contained 2350 names
and the one for Councilman Eichelber

number required by law, there being
•but 3467 votes cast for mayor at the
last election. Immediately after the
notice Mr. Eichelberger took the floor
and refuted the charges made against
him and filed his answer. His action
was followed by Mavor Robinson.

Washington. April 4.—Acting on the
request of the Province of Manitoba
for early hearing on the appeal of
Thomas Kelly, the millionaire con
tractor accused of complicity in the
parliament building frauds at Winni
peg, the supreme court of the United
States has docketed the case for argu
ment this week. Both the accused con
tractor and I he provincial government
will be represented at the hearing by
an array of eminent, counsel.
Kelly's appeal is from the decision
of the federal court at Chicago in re
fusing to release him on habeas cor
pus proceedings from custody in which
he is held for extradition. The charges
on which he is wanted for trial in
Winnipeg embrace perjury, conspiracy
to defraud and obtaining money under
false pretences. The perjury charge
deals with Kelly's evidence under oath
before the public accounts committee
of the Manitoba legislature. The con
spiracy charge embraces practically
the same evidence that has placed
former Premier Roblln and others on
trial before the Manitoba courts. The
third allegation sets forth that Kelly
received unlawful payments on the
parliament buildings' contracts in ex
cess of *800,000.

Captain Walter R. Cupp
Speaks to the Council of
Women Voters.
At the meeting of the Boise chapter.
National Council of Women Voters,
last night Captain Walter R. Cupp, of
the Idaho National Guard, spoke on
the subject, "The Responsibilities of
Good witizenship," taking as his theme
personal preparedness from a national
The course of his discussion em
bodied the Ideas suggested In these
quotations: from Calhoun, "Protection
and patriotism are reciprocal": from
FYench, "Every man has his value";
from the German and Danish, "Every
man Is the architect of his own for
tune," and from Tacitus, "The nature
of sovereign power Is not to endure a
He said he would preface his remarks
by saying that he did not believe in
training the boy to kill but that In his
work with the Boy Scouts Ills aim was
to Instill patriotism and to train them
to be physically, intellectually and
morally perfect so that they xvill make
the best citizens.
"From a national standpoint every
man has his value and the citizen who
Is prepared for military duty is the bet
ter citizen In time of peace for he is
equipped to take his place and assume
the responsibilities that must neces
sarily be his." said the speaker.
"Every man has a duty to perform and
he must either assume his share of the
burden or thrust it on another. The
man that is physically strong and in
tellectual Is prepared to care for hlm
self under all circumstances and will
not shirk his duty when called upon
in time of a crisis. If our boys are
properly trained to be good citizens and
to property care for themselves under
all conditions they need only Have a
gun put In their hands and be taught
to shoot to make a soldier, but that this
should be taught only when necessity
demanded in time of national need.
It Is not the military preparedness that
is the most essential thing but the pre
paredness of the individual that Is the
most important."
Like Growth of Plant.
Mr. Cupp said, in speaking of Amer
lea's national growth, he would com
pare it to the growth of a plant, having
its germination in the declaration of
independence, the constitution and na
tional organization. The first strong
growth was the making of new states
expansion of territory and the explor
ation and development of the country.
Then, as a plant becomes rootbound
after a vigorous growth, the nation be
came rootbound and began to drift
until It was necessary to repot the
plant and the struggle of the civil war
was the process whereby the equality
of all men was secured.
"Then there began the new growth
again in the reconstruction of national
purpose and establishment of unity,"
said Captain Cupp. "Now the organi
zation and centralization of political
power is carrying us on to another
rootbound stage where the national ob
jective is lost sight of and we are
merely drifting without any national
purpose, nearing another crisis where
we must decide whether our nation is
going to be a world empire or a true
democracy. Shall we attempt to pro
tect our citizens in all parts of the
world or like Switzerland say we will
not expand but will remain Intact; let
every one beware. Or like China hold
to ait idealistic view of peace and re
fuse to be prepared to meet the criti
cal time when It comes? China lias
been an example of a pure democracy
without any preparedness and when
outside nations begun to trespass upon
her it became necessary for her to call
in tlie Manchu tribes to protect her
and thus was gradually controlled by
them. She now sees the necessity ot
maintaining a preparedness which will
enable her to enforce her rightB as a
nation and people.
Lost Standing Among Nations.
"By refusing to assume our national
obligations we have lost our standing
with other nations of the world and
unless we are prepared to protect our
country and people we will have to pay
the bills of this great war in Europe.
There 's only a small percentage of
our men able to properly assume the
burden of self protection, in this iiour
and every man should strive for the
proper training to enable him to take
tits place, and assume his portion of
the national burden.
"Wc should know what our congress
men are doing with our government
and they shotiid have the right to the
council of the people they represent.
Every citizen . hould take an inter
est in public affairs and should exer
cise his right aud assume his respon
sibility in doing his share to make the
whole a unit."
