sieks business for the same reasons
that any other business enterprise
seeks business. It has no ax to
grind, no revenge to gratify, and no

The Attorney General, Hon.
John A. Bagley, has rendered an

opinion in which he holds that all
-, i- ii j • „
fines and licenses collected in a
village or city in the state of Idaho
must he divided equally between
the town treasury and the treasury
of the school district which em
braces the town within its bounda
ries. All such fines and licenses
formerly went into the town
treasuiy. The opinion is bused
upon a law passed in 1903.
There is evidence that some
thing is going to be doing down at
Washington in a few days relative
to Forest Reserve matters. Senator
Heyburn called upon the President
one Jay lan week to protest against
the further extension of forest re
serves, and so impressed the Presi
dent with the force of his argu
ments that Roosevelt called a halt
on the whole business and will take
the matter up in a few days with
the senators and representatives
from the states effected.
Heyburn has a way of getting what
he goes after
There is a warm political fight
in Latah county between the
friends of Congressman French and
of would-be governor Francis Jen
kins. The fad that Mr. French
must make the fight of his life in
