r OLUME 7 MERIDIAN, ADA COUNTY, IDAHO, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1915. NUMBER 25 State Capital Letter. is be is Boise, Idaho. Oct. 29, 191',. ttjpeciul service to the Times) 'That Judge E. A. Walters, of Twin Falls, will not be a candidate for Justice of the State supreme court against Chief Justice I. N. Sullivan was one of the political developments of the, past week. This fact was ascer tained by your correspondent, from Judge Walters, himself, who. when interrogated as to the authenticity of the report appearing in a recent issue of the Oregonian as well as other papers to the effect that he would be found In the next campaign pitted against the Cheif Justice, declared that the story was wholly without foundation as he was firmly decided against aspiring for any office, and that he might he quoted to. this effect. of a Since retiring from the judgeship of the Fourth Judicial District Judge Walters has developed a highly lucrative practice and he holds that he cannot afford to sacrifice this to enter politics. In this connection, it is safe to predict that no formid able opposition will develop to the renomination and re-election of Chief Justice Sullivan. This is the consen sus of the public opinion based upon the fact that there is a state-wide recognition and appreciation of his marked ability as a jurist, of his highly judicial temperament and his thorough knowledge of the court's rules, procedure and multiplicity of varied intricacies derived from his long experience upon the bench to which is to be attributed the rapid dispatch of the work upon its cal ender by the court despite the fact that of its three members, two were indacted into office during the past year. That there should be at least one member of the bench thoroughly conversant with all the many routine phases of the court and of ripe ex perience is very generally conceded. ' Strengthening the popular demand for the retention of Chief Justice is also the knowledge that all of his opinions have been so stamped with ability as to be of National comment and reference, a source of pride to the citizenship of the state, making the judiciary of Idaho comparable to that of toy other state, and his rulings haVe have been uniformly fair. These are the strong arguments which are being made in favor of Chief Justice Sullivan's retention by his friends who are legion in all parts of the state, and they appear to be very impressive- ones in view of the fact that of those who have been men tioned as possible aspirants for this position, all who would likely develop any proporation of strength as candi dates, have made it clear that they are not to be considered in this light and have discoursed the idea of op position to the Chief Justice, emphas izing the fact that his retention is to the best interest of the state, as changing the court to new members entirely coukt not' but tend to confii3 (on. complication and arrested pro gress of court procedure. Nor would It he an easy matter to encompass the defeat of the Chief Justice. His strength is confined to no part of the State, but is to be found In all of its sections where he has steadfast friends of long years' stand ing, who are as loyal to their alleg iance as in earlier days, and the strong impetus given their support by the general view that his removal would be in the nature of a calamity to the state makes it easily under stood that any candidate opposing him will enter the contest at too great a disadvantage. Still more dis couraging to those who would suc ceed him and very greatly lessening the chance of his having opposition at all is the fact that the State Bar % unit in jt 8 ^uppon of turn, taking tne broad and nonpartisan ground that neither the efficiency of the state judiciary nor the progress of its work should be sacraficed that some individual may attain his purely personal ambition. Congressman Addison T. Smith is in North Idaho making an now itinerary of that part of the state with a view to acquainting himself with its conditions and the needs and desires of its people in a legislative way. But few members keep in as close touch with their constituents as Congressman Smith and to this fact tu h« ilvfihivM 'his extreme popularity. He may well be termed a barometer of Idaho sentiment, for he both knows and reflects it. Moreover, that knowledge is not confined to any particular class or section, hut to the contrary is a general know ledge: in brief, a complete line upon what the average citizen thinks and is saying. This knowledge is derived front personal contact with the citizenship of the state without re gard to etas;* of location. Tbtj, popular Snkressinah is to be found CQiifering with his constituents upon the rauches as well as in business places in the cities and towns. He is delivering numerous addresses and his present itinerary appears to be one continued ovation. While In.North Idaho, holding the regular term of the state supreme Court for the Lewiston division, Justice Budge very largely extended his alreadv large circle of friends and admirers. The newspapers of that part of the state are very pro fuse in tlielr praise of ids pleasing personality ant} i»U *v|<l»uc*4 • as a jurist, especially Is the address which he delivered to the students of the law department of the State University at Moscow very highly commended. As a public speaker, the Justice is with out a peer in the state, and standing as the exponent of the most loftv Ideals amt practicing as advocating extrema civic * well as righteousness, his efforts give -a higher tone to the citizenship of the state, ar.d are both inspiring and beneficial' to the young. No man in public life, perhaps, has left a more favorable impression upon the public mind than has Justice Budge, and it is not strange that his friends are to be numbered by his acquaintances, and naturally enough, his popularity is of constantly increasing propor tions throughout the state. He is in growing demand as a public speaker, and but last week received an in vitition to deliver the principal address at the laying of the corner stone at the dedication of the new Klk's lodge building which is to occur next month. With such men as Justce Budge leading in public life in this 3tate, its citizenship, present and future, is assured against moral degeneracy. ing is has ing a DEPARTING NEIGHBORS ENTER TAINED. A farewell party in behalf of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Cook, who will leave for Kansas shortly, was given at their residence just south of town last Fri day afternoon and evening, by the la dles of the Farmers' Home club. Shortly after noon Mrs. Cook was surprised to see about 20 of the ladies arrive with heavy boxes, baskets, bundles, etc., and without further no tice take possession of her commod ious home. After depositing the boxes and baskets in the kitchen and pantry, bundles and handbags were opened, scissors, needles, thread and diverse pieces of material were ex tracted and before the astonished parties knew what it was all about a •■quilting bee" was in full swing. Each lady made a most beautifully pieced square block, w-ith her own name worked into the center of the block. The center block of the quilt was adorned with the name of the club and the date. Mr. and Mrs. Clark having both been very active members of the Farmers' Home club, the ladles took this means of express ing their appreciation as well as their regret at the loss of good neighbors and members. About 7 o'clock in the evening the men and cèildren began to arrive on the scene. In a very short time the tables were filled and everybody was made to realize that the ladies had not only brought their sewing but de termined to maintain their enviable reputation as hostesses, and pre pared a supper fit for kings. After a very determined but only partially successful effort to dispose of all the chicken, fried and boiled and broiled, salads, pickles, sauces, jellies, cakes and pies, the tables were cleared and a short business ses sion was held, Mrs. Cook announced her resignation as secretary and treasurer of the club, which office 'she has held since the organisation a year ago, At the close of the session expres sions were heard from all atues re gretting the loss of these good friends and neighbors. Mr, and Mr§. Cook expressed themselves as' sorry that they must leave their friends behind, and the session closed after, the best wishes for thlr prosperity and suc cess in their new home were tender ed the host and hostess hy the club. Now followed a most pleasing mu sical program, rendered by different members, both singly and collective The very enjoyable evning came to a close shortly before midnight, when after saying good night, every body went home, many thinking with the man who wrote: "Heaven's best gift on earth is good neighbors."

Next Wednesday evening at the Booster club rooms there will be a special meeting and banquet, to which all members are invited. At this time the newly-elcted officers will be formally insalled into office. The election, which took place last week, resulted in President L. A. Copeland and Secretary R. H. Bell be ing retained for another year, which is evidence that their administration has been satisfactory. The Booster club is now putting in new windows and otherwise improv ing their quarters in the M. E. church south building. A. B. Cox, a lineman residing in Meridian, employed by the Bell Tele phone company, is home again after a few days in the hospital at Boise. While engaged in repairing wires at Silver City at the top of a 50-foot pole, an associate, through error, weakened the support on one side, allowing the pole to fall to the ground, with Cox under it. How he escaped death is a miracle, but as it was Cox was badly bruised, and it was necessary to carry him overland several miles to the train at Nampa, and from there to the Boise hospital.
