Senator Claggctt , who Is Xo.I of the Idaho
delegation tor the upper house , Is in Wash
ington looking after his case and preparing
to place himself in a proper light before the
senate committee on privileges and elections ,
lie proposes to make a very strong light for
the sent to which Proil Dubols claims to have
been fairly elected. lr. Claggett said today
that ho has the law , the equities and the
morals on his sUle , nnd ho added : "There
wns a general understanding In the stnto
that the northern half , which Is entirely cut
oft from the southern end , should have ono
representatlvo In the senate. At our con
vention , " salil Mr. Claugott , "tbe proposition
was made to give ono senator to cnch
section , and after three or four days' debate
the resolution was carried. It wns then
innde a plunk In the platform , and It was sup
posed there would bo no more dllllculty about
It , hut when the legislature mot Mr. Dubois
nnd Mr. Shoup got up n combination to se
cure the election of throe senators instead of
two , and they got Mr McC'onnell into it ,
their plan being to let Mr. Shoup nnd Mr.
McConnolldraw for the terms , short or long ,
but regardless of the result of their drawing
to insure Mr. Dubols the full six years' term
beginning after March-I. They wonted mete
to go Into the combination Instead of Mr.
McC'onnell , but 1 would not agree to the
violation of the platform and the sacrifice of
the Interests of my section of the state. I
told them that the only proper thing to do
was to elect the two senators to which the
now state wns , entitled and when they had
taken their ' possession In the senate and
drawn for their terms , If the short term fell
to tlio southern senator , to elect a man from
that section of the state to succeed him , hut
If the short term fell to the northern senator ,
lo elect a man from the northern part of the
state to succeed him. In this way each
section would have a scnntor. This Is what
was contemplated in our platform , and
with that understanding the northern part
of the state had yielded till the local otlicos
to tlio south except that of lieutenant gov
ernor. Hut Mr. bnhols wants tlio six-year
term and the combination was lixed to ac
complish what hu desired. McConncll was
elected for north Idaho and Shoup from
south Idaho , and it was arranged that their
election should be followed by the election of
Uubois to succeed whichever one ( rot the
term expiring on Alarch I. The elections
wore Ill-Id under two provisions of law one
of the general law admitting the state nnd
the other under tlio constitution of the stato.
Under the constitution of the stnto the Onl-
loting for the two senators was
begun within ten days nftcr the first
meeting of the legislature. That being
done , the election of n successor to
cither of these senators was regulated fcy the
general law providing for the election , the
balloting beginning on the second Tuesday
after tlin meeting of the legislature. It was
proposed by the combination to elect Mr.
Dubois after the. second Tuesday , but ho dis
covered that it would bo impossible to hold
the combination together that long , the men
having been deceived into it nnd becominu
discontented as they began to anpreciatu ttio
deception. Thuroforo Mr. Duhois decided
not to wait until tlio lawful time for holding
the election , but to have himself elcctod
immediately , which ho did. The leg
islature was composed of irood men ,
but there wore only two lawyers in
the whole body , ono in the senate
and oiio In tlio house , so that they were easily
deceived as to the law. Hut when the second
end Tuesday after the meeting of the legis
lature hail arrived and the election could
legally bo held , they had come to im nniter-
stamllng of the situation. They balloted for
senator In tlio lawful manner , and I wus
elected to succeed Mr. McConnell , the sena
tor from north Idaho , who got tlio short
Tin ) contest promises to be an exceedingly
Interesting one , but the general opinion is
that Dubois will get the scut.
