ThaC tha Governor has -
en the building of the -mlla l nt
Kin North and South Idaho direct con
nations Is well known. Hie ardent
backers dear that polities plays any
paet in his activities. His opponents
declare th.t It Is the personal
he expects to acquire that Inspires
hlTha people generally, however, want
the railroad built. If tha Governor
can flnanca and have It bll t ey are
willing to give bins aU the credit,
whether his motives are political or
not. It Is safe to say that a great ma
jority of them do not take tha poli
tical charge at all seriously. They be
lieve the Governor la sincere.
Governor -acta Proposal.
The north and south railroad was
raised as an Issue during one or we
administrations of Governor Gooding.
Nothing definite came of It at that
time. The last Legislature revived It
through the passage of a resolution
calling on the Governor to appoint a
commission to investigate the feasi
bility of constructing such a road, out
it failed to make ao appropriation to
pay the expenses or such a commission.
Governor Alexander proceeded, how
ever, to create the commission. He ap
pointed Jerome J. Day. Stxte Senator of
Moscow: Aaron Parker, of Grange
vtlle. and C. L Paddock, of Welser. The
Chief Executive's next step was to In
struct the Public Utility Commission to
Investigate the route of tha missing
link, between Orangevllle la Northern
Idaho and New Meadows In. the south
western part of the state, the psesent
terminal of tha raclfie Idaho Northern
The utility commission reported It
found three feasible routes for the road.
At that time the commission was as
sisted by soma of the most competent
engineers In the state.
Saggested Rswtea Inaaeeted.
To sea the proposed routes for him
self and to have them reviewed by the
member, of the north and south rail
road commission. Governor Alexander
called the commission' together this
week and Tuesday, following a big ban
quet at New Meadows, tha party
started on a week's Inspection trip.
Armed with tha data obtained the
Governor leaves this Fall for New Tork
where ha will meet financiers to get
the financial backing for tha line.
The Governor has said that he will
bsva the road built, or at least have It
well under way. before he retires from
office. Ha Is considered one of the
most active and successful business
men In the state, and bis admirers as
sert that be will be able to "deliver
tha goods. They are confident that
Governor Alexander already has plana
wll formulated to obtain the capital.
Those Inclined to scoff at bis activity
assart that the state cannot lend aid
to a project of this kind, aa the consti
tution limits the bonded Indebtedness,
and tha limit haa already been reached.
Rest Water Predicted.
This criticism has been sharply re
buked on a number of occasions by
those who want the road built and who
ran see that with a terminal connec
tion at Lewtston. the Inland seaport of
this state. Southern Idaho will have a
waterway outlet. They also point out
that the operating telephone companies
would immediately parallel the railroad
with a direct toll line to replace the
present roundabout telephone connec
Giving direct denial to the charge of
politics. Insofar aa his connection with
the proposed road Is concerned. Gov
ernor Alexander. In an address before
a meeting at New Meadows. Just be--fore
starting on tha recent trip over
til proposed route, said:
"Some people may try to question
my sincerity In this railroad proposi
tion. I coma to you this early, when
there Is no political can.palEn under
war. to make a real effort toward get
ting this) road built. The latter part
f August i am going to New Tork
an1 Boston and talk north and south
railroad with men of large Influence
and capital and hope to get this road
Atrraettoa Asked for Capita L
The settlers of Washington and
Adams counties, together with the P'o
gresslve business men of that section,
adopted resolution at tha New
Meadows meeting Indorsing the pro
posed road. They represent tha masses,
insofar as the feeling is concerned over
the state, which found expression In
the following psrt of the reeolution:
believe that tha most generous
L'l IIDTIHI II . I 111.111 .. 1 1 1 - 11 IUW .
can lawfully extend should ha accorded
ta tne owner 01 or investors in sucn
a project, whoever they may be. and
our best efforts to co-operate with
tioo of the State of Idaho and all
ethers who are or who may become
Interested to that end.".
Political Owteasso Considered Vital.
Whether the Governor Is successful
or not. tha north and south rallrosd
proposition Is sare. It Is now conceded
by all party leaders, to plsy a promi
nent part ta tha future politics of the
state. Tha fact that the charge has
repeatedly been made that politics haa
already been Influential In creating so
much activity will keep the issue alive
as a political one.
If Governor Alexander Is able to get
actual construction work started on
the line he will have routed completely
Ilia political opponents.

It is probable that within, a short time
the public utilities pommlssion will re
ceive notification from General Pas
senger Agent Fort, of the Union Pa
cific" system, through D. E. Burley,
general passenger agent .of the Ore
mileage books will replace scrip for
travel over the Short Line's roads In
"On our recent visit to Salt Lake
City," said Commissioner Freehafer,
"we discussed this change with tha
Short Line officials, particularly Gen
eral Passenger Agent Burley. Frequent
travelers over the Short Line system
object to the scrip. In the first place,
they say the fSO investment required
Is too large and the exchange of the
scrip for tickets is Inconvenient.
"Interchangeable mileage was urged
as a substitute. This will only re
quire an investment of $50 for a 2000
mile book. The mileage will not have
to be exchanged -for tickets, but can
be presented to the conductor, which
makes it much ' more convenient to
the traveling public.
