With a Mormon Taint Need State Executive Committee The first State Republican convention of Idaho has closed tt was an excellent one and was an assembly of representative men These gentlemen came from all parts of Idaho To say this means more than is within the comprehension an Eastern man An incident will illustrate how poo pic used to estimate distances in this countryYears ago the United States Marshal for the Territory turnedin his billoC mileage at the Depart ment of Justice at Washington and de manded settlement A cleric looked at the figures saying it took 200 miles to travel fYomtoand taking a rule placed it upon a map ot Idaho and know ing look said This rule makes it only thirty milus between these two The Marshal that Ahe way you measure distances 1C it isV want nothing more to dowith you or any man who measures roads over mountains instead ot going around thorn as I havjc and telling the clerk that ho could be found in Idaho ready at any time to settle accounts walited out in disgust Tho Depnrtmeut had by such measurements brought the iMarshalin debt a few thousand dollars but on good showing had to pay which made a difference in milage in favor of the Marshal of Delegates to this convention came from Northern Idaho traveling through tho States of Washington and Oregon making respective distances tip as high as 700 miles by rail and stage others from the mountains iu Ouster Lemhi and other counties distances oflive or six hundred miles and one man drove with his team nearly 00 miles riicro is no doubt about the deep interest of these men in the
