MUCH NEEDED LAWS
DISCUSSED CHAMBER OF COMMERCE MEETS WITH LEGISLATORS FOR MUTUAL GOOD. The Missoula Chamber of Commerce eritertained several members-elect of the state legislature at an informal dinner in the Palace grill last evening, making use of the occasion to discuss nedled legislation. With the idea of letting the legislators know just what Missoula people would like in the' way of legislation, different members of the chamber of commerce presented vari ous matters for the consideration of their representatives. The crying need of protection for the dairy interests, the plan for the consolidation of the state's institutions of higher learning, necessary horticultural laws, the pro posed Missoula fish hatchery, fish laws and good road measures were among the topics offered y bthe various speakers. No attempt was made to dictate or shape policies; the members of the chamber merely review,', the situation in Missoula and Ravalli counties and asked the legislators to l:elp them. Ronald Higgins, Charles McRae of 'Voodside, legislator-elect from Ravalli county; F. W. Kuphal and J. B. Hen I.; were the lawmakers present. The chamber of commerce had also as its guests F. E. Carruthers of Stevensville, Secretary Hayden of the Hamilton Chamber of C(ommerce and President Tolman of the same organizati.n. The Dinner. The capacity of the Palace grillroom was tested by the size of the gather' ing which assembled in response to the invitation of the Missoula Chamber of Commerce to discuss Ilrospective' egis ITtien. Secretary Fe(rguson of the localr chamber was master of ce.remonioes and handled the dinner in excellent fash ion. At the main table were seated the visitors and the officers of the asso ciation of commercial clubs. Local members and others occupied the si(d' tables. Walter M. Bickford acted as tooastmaster. When the consideration of the ex c(llent menu had been concluded, Judge. Btlekford spoke briefly, outlining the purpose, of the meeting. lie said there were many important matters pending legislative action, in which the lpcople of the western part of the state have local interest; there are others in which the whole state is concerned and which should be thoroughly undlerstood. More can be. accompeOllish'ed, the speaker said, if there is unity of action than if these questions are not discussed. First upon the list oIf topics for con ideratioll wits the creamery questioll and J. L. Carruthers of Victor was called upon to discuss this question. To Potect Dairymen. Mr. Carruthers outlined the work of organization which the state dairymen have done and e.lmphasized the necessi ty which exists for legislation which will protect tie co-olperative creamery from thile attacks of the centralized es tablishment. lie explained the diffi culties which ha\e attended the ef forts to secure prloper legislative. pro tection for tihe local dairy, interests. The dairymen, he said. are in earnest in their support of the pure-food law and of the weights-and-measures law. I'They want these laws made stricter, even, and they want a spe.cialist namled as dairy commissioner in order that the industry may have all the encour agement -possible. Mr. Carruthers outlined the legisla tion which the dairymen have sug gest.d and explained the.details of the. creamery business in answer to ques tions whic!, were asked. His talk was extremely interesting. He made clear t his hearers the importance of the dairy industry and showed its possibill ties in this state. M' r. Carruthers went on to tell his SCARD INDEX CABINETS You'll be surprised how simple and convenient those troublesome records become S when Card Indexed. The Macey Card Index System arranges, records, classifies and indexes all kinds of information in a manner much less laborious and more satisfactory than with books. Macey Card Index Cabinets will ac SI n commodate records for any £:r.< *'* efs':' purpose-for any business • .--large or small. We also have a complete stock of Macey Cabinet = .."~ Supplies-Vertical File Guides and Folders, Card Index Record Cards and Guides, Transfer Cases, Etc. S ý... CARPIETANDFURNITURE ANNEX hearers of the effect of the creamery upon business conditions in the valley. "We paid out more than $100,000 last year," he said, "and any Stevensville merchant will tell you that the number of his cash customers has doubled since the creamery began operations." Judge Bickford next took up the sub ject of the greater university, which, as he said, divided itself into two parts. To Charles H. Hall he assigned the discussion for consolidation. The Greater University. "I don't know," said Mr. Hall, "that I can give you the facts in the matter, for I do not know much about the scheme. It is not the plan of the state board, as the evening paper seems to think, but a plan suggested to the board by a number of interested peo ple. ,Last month we held our annudl meeting of the state board of educa tion. The university asked us at that meeting for $377,000 for the next two years and the agricultural college asked for $400,000 for the same period. When we came to look over the state's finances we found that after the plri tentiary and insane asylum had been provided for and the other necessary expenses had been paid, only $800,000 would remain for the maintenance of seven educational institutions through a period of two years. We postponed the meeting until the state accountant could check over the figures, but when we -met again we found the situation unchanged. Then this movement for consolidation was started by represer. tative men from all parts of the state. They elected Lieutenant Governor Al len president, and called upon us. The Plan of which you have read was pre-I sented to us. But it is not our plan, whatever we may think of it as indi viduals. "One thing I will say, though. So tar as I know, gentlemen, no one town is back of this movement; no group of men is trying to engineer the scheme for the adv'antage of any locality. I believe that this movement was startedi disinterestedly." Too Early. For further discussion of the matter t'he toastmasnster called upon J. M. Keith. AMr Keith likewise pleaded in sufficient information. "I have not formed any de cided opinions regarding this plan," he said, "for I have not looked into it enough. I do think, though, that the plan ,demtands serious considera tion. Unfortunately it came so close to a meeting of the legislature that I fear the members of the assembly will not Ia\e tinme to thoroughly inform themii selves. I spoke to seve'ral menbers of the faculty of the state normal school about the matter when they were in Missoula last week, and found that they were not at all interested. They said that wherever consolidation had been effected in other states the nor mal schools had remained independent. "I am afraid, too, that the people of Bozeman will be opposed to the move ment unless they feel certain that their city will be the seat of the new unit versity. While it is undoubtedly the best thing from the point of view of economy, I feel that it is a little early to begin working for it." Judge Bickford then read to the din ers two amendments which he pre pared with a view to providing funds, either for the new university or for the schools as they exist at present. The first amendment called for an an nual tax levy of 1% mills, the money ,thus secured to be used for the sup port of the University of Montana. The second amendment provided for a similar levy, the money to he expended on the four state institutions of higher learning in such a manner as the legis lature might direct. Ile turned these amendments over to Ronald Higgins. As to Funds. ,Mr. Higgins was asked to say some thing about the different schemes for providing funds for the educational in stitutions. He said: "In almost every state of the union where state univer sities are maintained the funds for maintenance are secured from a mill tax. The western states have been slow about this, but they are rapidly falling Into line. Last year Washing ton passed a law levying a mill tax upon all property for the maintenance of her educational institutions, the largest share of the fund going to the "Peter Grimm" Tonight DAVID WARFIELD It will b rea rare l.h;silro ti tho litergýi' rs tt greet hti etl i i t stair of the A i'ioriiali stage, I i id \\'ar. field, tonight at the ll rit is theater.I Mr. Viarfield tt s hes In st visit here .r ll :. r :,l' 11 : ; ·,l [.'I \\ ill le se ,n ini David tIt isn'.Ts p.lay, "The lictill: of Peter ( ritin," in whith he will' present his nolw- ftailntis ritle of PIct ,er (rinint.
