hopeless Mr Pubois Is popular inLogan county and especially so with the wbrkingmen and his earnest appealto his friends to stand by the Legislative ticket has made many new friends for it is in such

the Re publican party has dbao for us and it would bo extremelyunfortunate for our material interests Tho National Demo cratic party Is opposed to oar every while tho Republican party Is our friend

that one of tho candidates Major Hill is an enemy of mine and would oppose my election to the United States Senate and that in this represent tho sentiment oftho country and therefore an has asked for your votes While I like Mr Clay personally very much I trust every Republicanwill support Major Hill I havo never mentionedthis Senatorial business before I have studiously avoided it as it has no

for two Republican United States Senators who will vote with tho party which guards your interests and who will labor for your advancement Ho believes that there are gentlemen in Idaho who will your interests better than I could and he should not be criticised for this He will do his duty to his party county and State sin cerely hope every Republican will give him a cordial support I especially ask that every friend of mine whether he be a Demo crat or a Republican give Major Hill his vote The people of Idaho do nob owe me anything but they owe a debt of everlast ing gratitude totheRepublican party and my friends will prove themselves to be my frlouds indeed by electing Major Hill who will be true to Republican principles and who will Senators Mr Smith and Mr Armstrong the

that these gentlemen will all receive a handsome indorsement at your hands If evoiyRepubllcau nominee for the Legislature in the State was opposed to ought not to interfere with their election They would be Republicans and when in the Legislature thoy will select the best men as tli oir they are Democrats they will not select Republicans and no lican should allow or dislike for any interfere

brief of Mr Elaines opinion on this case which though not intended for publication at thistime shows tho diplo matic side of the question in its most fa vorable light The Secretary of State holds that tho authorities of Guatemala had an indisputable right to arrest General Bar rundia upon any form of warrant legal in thecountry whenever found within the territorial jurisdiction of that republic The fact that he was on board a merchant vessel of the United States made no differ ence nor was it necessary that ho shouldbo shown actually guilty of any offouse prior to his arrest If General Barrundia had demanood a warrant of arrest he would have exhausted his rights at that moment and any resist ance would have been at his peril ft is now known to the Department through Min ister report that the warrant for the arrest of Barrundia was from tluj proper source In proper form and was served by proper officials Up to tho moment when Barfnudia opened lire in a manner so fran tic as to imperil members of the ships com pany and passengers the Guatemalan pro ceedings areadmitted to have been scrupu lously correct and particularly regardful of the feelings of CaptainPitts and of the nar tion to which his vessel belonged It is doomed Important to emphasize this point because it has been assumed that the at tempt to servo and execute the warrant of arrest on board the Acapuloo was in itself an invasion of the rights and dignity of the States This is a point that the De partment does not regard as open to discus sion the United States Supreme Court hav ing clearly laid down the law in several wellknown decisions involving this ques tion Barrundia was not a political refugee for he went voluntarily intothe jurisdiction of a country whoso laws required his arrest aiid trial and the doctrine of political asylum has no application whatever to tho case Another point upon which the Department is satisfied is that there was no violation of the pledge voluntarily given by the Guatemalan Government to Minister Mizuor that Barrundia should not be subjected to It having been volun tarily1 given and accepted in courtesy it is pleasing to the Department to find that Barrundlas death constituted no violation of tho pledge So far as tho investigation Is concerned theconduct of Captain Pitts from first to last in tto opinion of the Department pro sented a most urgent svibject for inquiry His case Is regarded as standing in an ex ceedingly unfavorable light upon the facts so they are known and whether his conduct was governed by inexcusable ignorance or sordid consideration con venience or profit is not yet clear Either heshpuld not have accepted Barrundia as a passenger or having accepted him with a knowledge of his legal status ho should not have carried him within the territorial limits of Guatemala THE T1UI5UNE DISSATISFIED The Tribuncsln an editorial on Mizner says The Minister might properly have brought the facts before the attention of iihe Guatemalan Government without in any way questioning the right of local jurisdic tion It was a case which to have been referredto the State Department at and pending a decision of his superiors the Minister would have been justifiedin taking General Barrundia under the protection of the American at his own residence or on board a United States maiiofwar The account of the transaction indicates that tho Guatemalan were successful in accomplishing what international law declared must never be done enforced the return and arrest of a political offender The circumstances amore exhaustive and more dis
