point the attorney general of the state,
who Is serving his first term. Hawley
Is and has been an announced candi
date for senator against Senator Bo
rah, who stands for re-election this
year. Nugent, It Is currently repo.N»d
In political circles, stepped aside ti
give Hawley a clear field at the prl
martes.
NUGENT PROBABLE APPOINTEE.
Nugent looms big as the probable
appointee to succeed the late
James H. Brady. He Is one of the
most prominent leaders In the Demo
cratic party and has been so for years
He has served as state chairman and
when the party was divided Into fac
tions he lead the so-called Nugent
wing. When Senator Brady ran for
re-election to the senate, Nugent and
Hawley were both Democratic sena
torial aspirants. Hawley was nom
inated at the primaries. He was de
feated at the general election by Sen
ator Brady who at tho 1912 session of
the legislature was first elected to the
aenate to succeed Weldon B. Heyburn,
deceased. While he was defeated In
the primaries Nugent did not lose hls
grip on leadership In the party. He
demonstrated that he was still In pow
er at the last stabs convention held at
Pocatello when he succeeded In re
electing Robert H. Rider as Demo
cratic national committeeman.
The appointment of Nugent will
mean that he will be teamed with
Hawley In the Democratic primaries
and at the next general election.
REPUBLICANS MUST NAME TWO.
Besides Senator Borah the Repub
licans will also have to nominate an
other candidate for senator, for thero
will be two to elect. Senator Borah's
term expiring with the close of tho
present year. Early last year Senator
Borah made It known that he expected
to retire from the senate. This an
nouncement caused such strenuous op
position from Republicans In the state
that he was forced to reconsider the
matter. After conferlng with hls con
stituents bore he returned to Washing
ton and on hie arrival there It was
announced he had decided to recon
elder hls former decision and remain ln
the race.
When Senator Borah's first an
nouncerrumt with regard to retirement
was made, Frank R. Gooding and
James F. Allshle, both of whom had
been unsuccessful In the Republican
primary raoe when the late Senator
Brady was nominated, having them
selves been candidates, made It known
they would be In the race for senator,
Senator Borah's decision to remain
In the raoe was taken to Indicate they
would not enter the primaries against
him. However, another vacancy being
created through the death of Senator
Brady, It Is forecasted both will get
Into the raoe as candidates. There la
also a possibility that Congressman
Burton L. French, also one of the de
feated primary candidates when Sen
ator Brady ran for re-election, may
enter.

ment and seek to avoid a post-war
trade conflict.

Its effects already were felt as far
east and north as southern Illinois.
This storm, It was said, apparently will
not be serious as the ono Just passed.
Its exact course has not yet been de

than anticipated. Officials expressed

clared that the Russian delegates de
manded return of war refugees from
the Polish and Lithuanian districts be
fore the self-determination plan was

cible mobilization of the Poles
Lithuanians and that those of this
nationality arrested for taking u;
arms against ths central powers or lm
prisoned for psaoe efforts, b* released

warded their version of last Thurs

ference. After Delegate Golubovitoh
had announced the representation of
the Ukrainian republic at the meet
ing, German Foreign Secretary Kuehl
mann Inquired whether the Russia«*
Intended to continue as "sole directors"
of the negotiations.
Foreign Secretary Trotsky replied
that he and other Russian delegates
accepted the Ukrainian declaration of
a separate Independent existence In
view of the Russian's recognition of
the principle of self-determination.
Kuehlman Insisted that the Ukrain
ians only be permitted to participate In
the confoi'ence Independently, appar
ently seeking to establish the double
character of the Russian representa
tion and to divide the strength of the
delegation*.
Trotsky then replied that ths Uk
rainians' republic was still In process
of formation and Golubovitcb, In
supporting him. .asserted that the
Ukrainians and Russians were pro
ceeding as ''representatives of on*
front."
According to th* Russian version,
Xushlman's efforts were thus frus
trated. The conference then agreed to
sub-divide and discuss the vafknis
questions by committees.

SENATOR BRADY
(Continued from Page One)
pled hls attention. In 1894 he earns
west and located In Idaho at Poca
tello.
The possibilities of Irrigation and
water power development attracted
Senator Brady soon after his arrival
here. He had faith In the future
growth and expansion of Idaho. He
firs*, took up Irrigation and handled a
number of projects In the southeastern
part of the state. Ths gigantic power
development possible at American Falls
on the Snake river decided him to erect
a power plant there and attempt to
harness the power. He was success
ful In part, the plant distributing
power to Pocatello and tributary cities
and towns.
For years Senator Brady owned and
operated this plant. Later he sold It
to heavy power operators who came
Into the southern part of the state to
consolidate the power units. The Ir
rigable lands around Mountain Home
interested Senator Brady and he took
over the system there. He held hls In
terests there at the time of hls death.
At one time Senator Brady was heavily
interesetd in real estate in Boise. When |
he became governor of the state he !
purchased tho handsome Eoff resi ■
dence on Main street and resided thero ;
during hls term. This residence was '
purchased recently from Senator Brady i
by Dr. E. A. Bryan, state commis- j
sloner of education. He also held val- !
uable real estate property In Wash- i
Ington, D. C., Pocatello and other eitles,
There were two sons from Soii.-.tnr
Brady's first marriage in Kansas, and
they survive him, together with Mrs.
Brady, nee Miss Irene Moore, formerly |
of Boise, who was united in marriage
to Senator Brady several years rgo.
POLITICAL ACTIVITIES.
Senator Brady was the center of one
of the most Intensely interesting po
litical fights in the history of the state.
I when he was first elected to the senate.
j Election of senators by direct vote
was not In force then and the legls
lature elected Idaho's toga wearers. i
Prior to that he served as Republican |
state central committee chairman, dl- i
rectihg the affairs of hls party up to I
1908. On Nov. 3 of that year he was
elected governor of Idaho, succeeding '
Frank R. Gooding, who had served two j
I terms. He served one term and was ;
succeeded by James H. Hawley of Boise I
In 1911. I
cans in the race to succeed Senator
Heyburn. James F. Allshle, however
Ths Twelfth legislature which was
Inaugurated in January, 1913, was called
upon to elect two United States sena
tors, Senator Weldon B. Heyburn hav
ing died during the fall of the previ
ous year and James H. Hawley, then
governor, having appointed Klrtland 1.
Perky of Boise to fill the recess period.
The legislative fight was made on the
re-election of United States Senator W.
E. Borah with the result that both
branches of the legislature were over
whelmingly Republican and Senator
Borah was elected on the first ballot.
LEGISLATIVE CONTEST.
Besides Senator Brady there were a
number of other prominent Republl
was hls principal opponent. The two
houses of the legislature balloted
Jointly for many days to break the
dead-lock that developed and Intense
excitement prevailed. The Brady forces
however, held together and on the
thirty-first ballot gained enough votes
to constitute a clear majority ant
elected Senator Brady to the senate.
This ballot was cast on Jan. 24, 1913.
Senator Brady served during the unex
pired term of Senator Heyburn, was a
candidate to succeed himself and was
re-elected Nor. 8, 1914 to a full six
year term which would have expired In
1921.
Senator Brady held a number of Im
portant senate committee assignments
while serving In the upper house of
congress, these Including military af
fairs, mines and mining, agriculture
and forestry, conservation of natural
resources, national banks, expenditures
In the department of commerce, public
lands, buildings nnd grounds.
The last trip of Senator Brady to hls
home state was made late last year.
Hla friends were surprised at the Im
provement shown In hls health, for he
had been very 111 before and at one
time It was thought he could not sur
vive. He did, however, and was able
to return to hls home state. . It was on
hls return to Washington that he suf
fered another break-down which re
sulted in his death Sunday.

suffered with a bad form of stomach
trouble, cor: Ipatlon and pains in my
side and biu At times the pains took
tlvi form of torture and I was twice ex
amined and each time I was told that
i had appendicitis and that an opera
tion would be my only hope. I had
fallen off until I only weighed ninety
eight pounds and was so weak I could
hardly get around.
'T had no appetite at all, scarcely
and what little I did oat would cause
gas to form In my stomach, which
gave me palpitation of the heart, alck
headaches and a dizzy feeling about
the head. When these spells came on
me I would get awfully nervous. 1
worried about myself until I could rest
and sleep but little.
"I had fallen off until I was almost
'skin and bones' and my strength and
energy were slowly leaving me. I had
a dread of tho future and could see
nothing but the operating table and
knife. I had a perfect horror of an op
eration, but had made up my mind that
It was either life or death, and pre
pared to submit to It. I had made all
preparations for the operation and
called In my sister to tell her good
bye, as I did not know whether I would
live to see her again or not. My sister
begged and pleaded with ire not to al
low them to cut on me. and told me
to wait and try a good tonic for 4
while. The next day, as I returned from
the consultation room, I thought of
what she said, and as I had heard so
much about Tanlac. I decided to try
It ns a last resort and stopped at Gil
bert's drug store and got a bottle. Ot
course I had lost heart and had no
faith In the medicine, but to please my
sister I made ur my mind to take it.
and, oh, what a happy day that was
for mo.
"I have never returned for the oper
ation, but just kept taking the Tan
lac. Right from the start 1 began to
foel better. The medicine seemed to
take hold right at once. It has a
soothing effect and In a few days I
felt no pains at all. 1 was so happy
over the wonderful Improvement in
my condition »hnt I rent for my neigh
bors to tell thorn how much better l
felt. I sent and got another bottle of
Tanlac, nnd have Just finished taking
my third bottle and feel like I hava
been made all ovor again Into a new
woman.
•'As I have said before, I now weigh
126 pounds and my Improvement has
been so rapid that none of raj clothes
are big enough for me. I will have too
make them all over again. I now have
a ravenous appetite and my husband
saya I am simply eating him out of
house and home. I have gone bnck to
my coffee, which I waa told not to
touch. Those terrible pains In my back
and head have all dlanppeared and I
steep like a child. I am no longer
nervouB. and when I get up mornings I
feel refreshed, cheerful and bright. I
am now able Jo attend to my house
hold duties and I feel as If I had
started life all over again. My husband
la highly delighted and my recovery
la the talk of the neighborhood. I do
nothing but rejoice all day long over
the recovery of my health and praise
Tanlac to everybody.
"I feel so grateful for my escape
from the operating table and the knlf*
that you may publish what I have said;
you may, if you wish, tell other wo
men suffering as I waa to come and
see me, and I will be glad to tell them
all about my case."
