IDAHO ELECTION IS
FULL OF SURPRISES
Defalcations ofO.X A"en and
Beating of Editor Have
Effect on Result.
DEMOCRATS IN CONTROL
Senator Hart, Speaker Connor and
Others Who Have Been Members
of Legislature for Years Are
Defeated This Time. '
BOISE. Idaho, Nov. 11. (Special.)
There were many surprises in the elc
tion in Idaho Tuesday. One of them
was the fact that the Democratic can
didates for other state offices ran
ahead of the Democratic gubernatorial
candidate, who was forced to bear the
brunt of the attack. John C. Rice, a
Democrat, runnlne against Robert N.
Dunn, a Republican, in the non-partisan
race for Justice of the Supreme
Court, swept the state, with the ex
ception of his opponent's district.
Unquestionably the heavy Wilson
vote had much to do with the defeat
of so many Republicans for Btate and
legislative offices, yet an analysis of
the returns also shows that the vot
ing' was not altogether straight. Thou
sands of electors carefully scratched
Ktw Officials Are Chosen.
The desire to elect a new set of state
officials in the hope that the deplor
able conditions that have prevailed at
the State House may be remedied, is
apparent from the returns.
No matter what' changes may be
made in the official count, the Demo
crats have elected three members of
state boards, who 'will control them
Attorney General, Secretary of State
and State Auditor.
Ex-Treasurer Allen's embezzlement
of $93,000, and, finally, the Huston loan
episode, exposed by Captain E. CJ.
Davis, a candidate on the Republican
ticket for Governor at the primaries,
were reflected on the results Tuesday.
Other influences were the fee claim of
J12.500 which arose over the state's
suit to recover its losses from Allen's
bondsmen, and the Snook-Broxon epi
sode that took place In the State Capi
tol when Warden Snook attacked C. O.
Broxon, secretary to the Governor, for
an editorial in a local paper Broxon is
said to have written.
Investigator Is Elected.
It is a somewhat peculiar coincidence
that Auditor-elect Van Deusen is the
man who made the original exposure
on the Allen dummy loan and affairs in
connection with the State Treasurer's
office and Broxon, led the fight four
years ago In the Progressive party and
is one of the three newspapermen fined
and sent to Jail by the Supreme Court
for criticising that tribunal for, ruling
the Progressive Presidential Electors
off the ticket. The personnel of the
Surfreme Court has changed since then.
The Tuesday election resulted in
the defeat of many legislative lead
ers, including Senator John Hart, A H.
Conner, speaker of the House; Sena
tors Ricks and Steele. The Democrats
have control of the Senate, with 23
Senators, and of the House, with 36.
