SHOUP OUT Conference at Boise Chose D. W. Stanrod as Na tional Committeeman. CHOICE EASILY MADE No Factional Fights Developed— Unanimous Sentiment for Stan rod—Reception for Shoup. Boise, Idaho, Nov. 36.—Judge D. W. Stanrod of Pocatello was selected today as national committeeman for Idaho vice Geo. L. Shoup resigned. There was a strong sentiment for Judge Stanrod from the first and an informal ballot taken to day resulted as follows: Stanrod, 39; Heyburn, 9; Eastman, 1; Aitabie, 1. On motion the selection of Judge Stanrod at«» made unanimous. This endorsement is a recommendation merely to Senator Ilanna, chairman of the National Re publican committee, that Stanrod be ap pointed to fill the vacancy made by the resignation of Senator Shoup but tbs ap pointment of Stanrod incertain to follow. The unanimous appointment of Judge Stanrod averts the trouble many leaders apprehended when the sudden teaigna tion of Shoup presented the problem of selecting his successor. By common con sent the senatorial question was not con sidered in the matter. The choice falle upon a man free from any senatorial en tanglements and represents the senti ment that the republican leaders are united first of all for succeas leaving other questions to be settled as time de velops need of solution. The new leader is well known in pub lic life and has been prominent for years in the councils of his party. He served with distinction as district judge in the Fifth judicial district from 1893-1896 and has since been twice a nominee on the republican state ticket, in 1896 for judge of the Supreme court and in 1900 for governor. He is a man of unquestioned ability in affluent eircumalances with ample leisure to devote to the interests of Idaho in the national councils of the Party- t The Woes ef Childhood.

WATER RATES A Decision Made Yester day Denying the Tem porary InjuctiOn. CITY CAN REGULATE RATES Judge Steele Holds that the City Has the Power, and that Present Value of Plant is the Basis. Judge Steele handed down his decision in the water rate case yesterday after noon. In brief the decision favors both the parties in interest. The court denies the temporary injunction asked for by Mr. Mohl, but holds with the city that the council has the right to regulate rates sud that the present cash value of the plant is to be the basis for estimating what is a reasonable rate. The case will now be heard on its merits as to whether the new rate or the old is' the just and equitable rate. This case came up on a suit instituted by Wm Mohl to settle the contention be tween the city of Lewiston and the Lew iston Water Company as to whether or not the city council had power to regu late the water rate. The city council passed an ordinance lowering the qld contract rates. Mi. Mohl offered the company the new rate which they re fused. The court was asked to grant a temporary restraining order prohibiting the company from turning off the water from Mr. Mohl's place and' denying him service The defendant company in its snswer raised the question of the right and authority of the city to regulate the rates and claimed that tbe rates if raised bad to be regulated by the general laws of the state. The Lewiston charter provides that tbe rates are to he fixed by an agree ment between the company and tbe per sons being supplied by the company. Tbe company's contention was that Sec tion i of Ordinance No. 1119 which pro vides that the council has authority to regulate the rates was "ultra vires" in as much as it was in direct conflict with the city charter. Thé court held that Ordinance No. 109 granting a franchise to the water company waa a contract between tbe city and tbe defendant company and that it was neither "ultra vires" nor in conflict with tbe charter and that ««der provision of the charter and-tbe constitution of the state tbe general law relative to the fix to in as on • • Millinery Is the Kcj Gf Values •••* r ; wtoaiiii r TrïT) V 1 M,, ing of water rater, does not apply to the city of Lewiston inasmuch as it is acting under a special charter, and the court held that the city council had authority to regulate the rates of the defendant company. The company raised the question that in ascertaining what was a reasonable rate and on what amount the company would be allowed a profit that the original cost of the plant was to be taken as a basis. In deciding this tbe court held that the rate was to be determined on the present cash value as a basis. As to the reasonableuesss of the rate the court held that the showing made was not sufficient to enable the court to pass on whether or not the com;any would realize sufficient income under the new rate and the temporary restraining order was denied. The case will now come up for hear ing at the next regular session of.court when evidence will be offered and de cision made as to which is the just and equitable rale. Will Open Fifth Strut. The city council took action Monday night in the matter of opening Fifth street througn the Vollmer tract on Nor mal Hill An ordinance was introduced authorizing the city attorney to institute proceedings to condemn' a strip of land to lie used as the extension of Fifth street due north and south through the Voll mer tract. The original plat of the ad ditions. to Lewiston on Normal Hill laid out Fifth street on an angle to the south east as shown by the present side walk line through the Vollmer tract, but everywhere else on the hill the old street has been abandoned and the present streets and lots run on right angles. The present proceeding is instituted to foice a street through the property vhere the council say purchase cannot be. made.
