County officials, in an inspection of

bill prohibiting polygamy was a wise

Garrison replied he did not believe in

The House of Representatives of the
Thirteenth Idaho Legislature decided
today to Join the special grand jury
and the corps of exoert accountants
and conduct an investigation into the
charges against state officials. Three
independent bodies are now probing
into the affairs of state offices.
Immediately after convening this
morning Representative Johnston, of
Bingham County, the Republican floor
leader, offered a resolution in the
House calling on Speaker Conner to
armnint a committee of seven to con
duct an investigation into the several
state departments, examine tneir dooks,
issue subpenas, conduct public hear
ings and reDort findings as to the guilt
or innocence of state officers or sub
ordinates. The resolution was adopted
by a vote of 34 to 27.
Speaker Conner appointed the fol
lowing investigating committee: Rep

Minority Leader Anderson attempted

resolution providing for the delay of
the investigation until after the grand

experts have finished their report on
the treasury department. He contend
