The funeral of Frank A. Robinson,
our well-known citizen, occured this
afternoon at 1:30 o'clock at the res
idence on South Washington street.
Rev. Wayne S. Snoddy conducted
short service at the home, to which
the immediate friends of the deceased
were admitted, since a public indoor
service is not permitted under the
present quarantine. A quartet from
the Presbyterian choir sang two beau
tiful well-known hymns. The Blue
T*odge of the Masonic order had charge
of the ceremonies at the grave,
pallbearers were Frucis Jenkins, J. S.
Hfeckathorn, Homer David. L. F. Par
sons, Glen Sanders and Tom Wright.
The casket was of solid steel, her
metically sealed. The floral remem
brances were many and beautiful.
The Masonic order presented a beau
tiful piece representing its emblems:
the Elks, a lovely wreath : the Re
bekah lodge of Genesee, a beautiful
spray the N. B. B. O. O. club of Mos
cow, a handsome wreath, and many
friends, sprays of flowers.
James Robinson, a brother of the de
ceased arrived today from Lewiston.
Mrs. Phillips, a sister in Portland, had
undergone an operation just four days
ago and was unable to attend.
A number of friends from Genesee
were here to pay their last respects.
Following is a poem, Mr. Robinson
had carried with him for several
years :
"He is out of the chaos of living,
The wreck and debris of
years ;
He has passed from the struggle and
He has finished his goblet
He has ceased one by one from his
So we clothed him in garments
And he entered the chamber of Sil
God do for him now what is best.
"We saw not the lift of the curtain,
Nor heard the invisible door,
As he passed where life's problem
Will follow and vex him no more;
We lingered and wept on the thres
The threshold each mortal must
Then we laid a new wreath down
upon it,
To mark a new sorrow and loss,"
PARIS.—fBy Associated Press)—
Prince Lvoff, the former Russian
premier, from whom Foreign Minister
Pichon obtained information of the
• massacre of the imperial Russian
family, as related in the chamber of
deputies last week, informs the Jour
nal that he learned the details from
a judge who made an investigation of
the deaths. The prince quotes the
judge as saying:
"T left nothing to chance, and al
though some poihts are not yet
cleared up, I consider that the chances
are 95 out of 100 that the imperial fam
ily was massacred."
Prince Lvoff says the judge wept
as he told him that they had found
on the walls of the room where the
family had been confined marks of
35 revolver bullets and many cuts
which had been made by bayonets.
Blood was drying everywhere on the
wooden floor.
PARIS.—The view is now held in
American official quarters that the
attitude of British leaders shows such
co-ordination with the American view
point as will facilitate a mutual agree
ment before the peace conference.
After the close of the recent confer
ences attending Prsident Wilson's
visit to London, one of the foremost
British statesmen summed up the sit
uation by saying:
"I would not thînk of having a
peace conference alone until there had
been establish a league of nations as
outlined by President Wilson, as the
i>t Ai'sh nation has clearly shown it
fpects that to be done."
Mr. Balfour, after his conference
here, has proceeded to Connes, where
he will remain until the middle of

Where Quality Counts
Captain A H. Wilson of Lewiston,
formerly of Claras Fork, has been'
named by Governor-elect D. W. Davis, !
to succeed Charles S. Moody, as adjut
ant. general of the slate of Idaho, ac
cording to an announcement made a
few days ago by Idaho's new chief
executive. Captain Wilson is now at
the capital familiarizing himself with
his new duties and will take up hi.s I
official duties on January 6. !
For a number of years Captain Wil-I
son was deputy pure food commission-j
er under James H, Wallis, with head- j
quarters at Lewiston, and at the same
time was a federal meat inspector for
the government. When the war broke
out Captain Wilson made application
to get into the service. He was ac
cepted and commissioned with head
quarters at Fort Shelling, Minn., and
was staiöned there for some time.
George will lie in Paris on the return
of President Wilson from Italy.
Ben Lookingglass, one of the lead
ing men of the Nez Perce Indians, as
well as one of the wealthiest, died
suddenly Saturday morning of heart
failure. He had been in his usual
health up to the night before, when
he was stricken and lived only a few
hours. The funeral was held Mon
day afternoon, there being only a
service at the grave in the Indian
cemetery north of town. Looking
glass was sixty-four years old and
had lived all his life in the vicinity
of Kamiah. In his early years he was
one of the powerful men of this once
powerful tribe and later became
one of its councilors and much re
spected men. He was one of the lar
gest land holders of the tribe, own
ing hundreds of acres of fine land on
the Nezperce prairie, as well as hav
ing other property and money. His
wife died a number of years ago and
of a family of twelve children all
have died excepting his son, Dave,
who is the sole heir of his father. A
brother, Henry, of Kamiah, and two
sisters, Susie, of Kamiah, and Mar
tha, of Lapwai, survive him.—Pro

well known here, may lose the sight
of one eye, as a result of an accident
on Monday while he was splitting

cording to the Lewiston Tribune one

ner as to strike Mr. Hattabaugh on
the eye, and his physician said the
sight may be ruined. ■

.-Editor, Star-Mirror:
/? UI l, ecllt ? rlal , last , ~
th e refusal of Judge Gharies
H . u f h es to serve on the committee
a P p0in ted by the democratic mayor
New York to receive the returning
soldiers when he learned that Wil
liam R. Hurst was a member of that
committee. In closing you say: "If
other American people would show
the commendable stand for right and
opposition to recognizing such men as
Hearst as Judge Hughes has shown,
it would do much to show IJearst how
he Stands with the American people."
Well, I think it would be the right
thing for them to do to take that com
mendable stand and show that prince
of yellow journalism and political out
law ' what loyal, respectable people
think, of him. And this thought
causes me to turn to the past and
turn back a leaf in the political his
tory of this country. At the repub
lican national convention in 1884,
James J. Blaine was fairly and hon
estly nominated as the candidate of
his party for president. But a strong
and very noisy faction in the republi
can party, for reasons sufficient to
them, I suppose, refused to supnort
Blaine and put up one of the most
scurrilous and viciously abusive
paigns against him ever known in our
political history. Blaine was defeat
ed by Grover Cleveland by such a
very narrow majority that it was
perfectly apparent that this faction
the party called
Harper's Weekly George W. Curtis,
nominated Blaine, and yet that paper
made a scurrilous, bitter fight against
Harper's Weekly was then a
great paper, and had for many years
before that been strongly republican
in politics. The house of Harper
Brothers was at that time one of the
great publishing houses of this coun
try. After the election that year the
hatred of the republicans against Cur
tis and the Harpers was very bitter.
The result was that subscribers by
the_ thousands cancelled their sub
scriptions to Harper's Weekly and
Harper's Magazine and refused to
take them from the post office. I
was one of them, and we not only
boycotted the paper and magazine,
but we took a solemn vow never to
buy a book brought out by that pub
lishing house. And I have kept that
vow until this day. So general was
this boycott that the business of Har
per's publishing house was ruined, and
the company went into bankruptcy.
Now, the point I want to make is
that if all the loyal, decent people
of this country would evince that kind
of a spirit toward William R. Hearst
they would make his disreputable, un
American publications unprofitable.

body of the university with the hope
of minimizing this risk.
The health officers also decided not
to permit the opening of the churches,
picture shows, billard halls and card
rooms, and to maintain a strict house
quarantine and keep in force the other
rules and regulations that were laid
down a week ago. »
Some of the merchants have adver
tised sales for the coming week. These
cannot be stopped without closing of
the stores. The merchants will be
permitted to held their sales under
quarantine regulations with police
supervision appointed by the mayor,
which will prevent any crowding or
conjesting In the stores.
Dr. Adair in speaking of the situa
tion in Mosbow said that it had come
his attention there was considera
ble breaking on the. part of the people
the quarantine rules; that some
people were not recognizing in the
proper spirit the house quarantine,
and there were others holding par
ties of various kinds and description
which is a great risk to themselves
and their guests that some people
seemed to consider that the quaran
tine regulations were made for the ob
servance of others and not for them
selves; that he had appealed to the
people to cooperate with the health
officers to the first interest of the
community, but that a considerable
number were failing to do this, and
that there only remains one thing for
him to do and that was to use the
rpolicing power of the city to enforce
j the quarantine regulations that he has
as ked for the appointment of a special
policeman to enforce the health rég
ulations, and from this time on any
[ person wilfully violating the saihe
would be prosecuted to the full ex
tent of the law.
Superintendent Rich of the high
