Sandpoint Commercial Club Fathers
Project of Securing Agricultura
list to Aid Firmer«
Government Pays Salary -County to
Pay Expenses Only
A plan is now on foot, fathered
by the Saudpoint commercial club,
whereby Bonner county may se
cure the entire time and services of
an expert agriculturalist who will
spend his time in visiting various
communities of the county in order
that he may give such information
as is asked and advise with the
fanners on questions concerning
the planting, caring for and har
vesting of their crops.
The projmsition was brought up
Wednesday evening before the
Sandpoint commercial club by
Dean Carlyle of the Idaho College
of Agriculture. The commercial
club was informed that the salary
of such an expert would be paid
by the government. The expenses
of the expert, which would amount
to about $1,000, would have to be
borne by the comity employing
him. Dean Carlyle stated that the
Idaho Agricultural college would
pay half of the expense money so
that it would only be necessary for
the county to raise $500 to secure
the proposed services of an expert.
The proposition met with the
f^VPl - of the Sanfipoint commercial
plnh and the members of that body
decided to take np the matter with
the various other clubs of the
county at once. It was proposed
that the county commissioners be
asked to appropriate $250 of the
sum to be raised by the county and
that the remaining $250 be assumed
and raised by the several commer
cial club organizations.
Dean Carlyle suggested the name
of Earl C. Hall, a graduate of the
Idaho agricultural college, as a
man who was well fitted to look
after the interests of Bonner county
farmers, He told that the plan
was one that met with favor where
ever tried and that the services of
the farmer's expert always proved
to be of incalcuable yal^e \o the
farmers and ranchers.

Petit Larceny Cue Dismissed fa|
O'CclUghtn'i Coart Wednesday
The case of the state against
Jaujes Burke, charged with petit
larceny was tried, in Justice of
Peace O'Callaghan's court W«D
nesday morning at XÜ o'clock.
Justice O'Callaghan held the de
fendant not guilty and dismissed
the case.
The defendant was arrested by
Marshal Sawyer on the charge
of having stolen a watch from a
rancher by the name of Napoleon
Beaudette last Thursday. Beau
dette told Marhal Sawyer that h*
had been robbed but could not give
a description of the guilty party.
Next day Marshall Sawyer learned
that the watch had been pawned
for fifty cents by Burke. When
asked about the matter Burke told
the marshal that he had pawned
no watch. On being confronted
by the man to whom he had pawned
the article he admitted the act but
slated that he had brought the
watch wich him from Minnesota,
In the meantime Marshal Sawyer
learned that the watch which
Burke pawned had been purchased
about six o'clock last Thursday
evening at O. F, Howe's jewelry
store by Beaudette.
At the trial Wednesday the de
fense told that he had purchased
the watch in question of Beaudette
and this testimony was corroborated
by George Schofield who told that
he was present when the deal was
made and had advanced fifty cents
to the defendant to help pay for
the watch. The state had evidence
which showed that Schofield knew
nothing of the transaction at the
time Burke went to him to have
him go on his bonds but the ad
mittance of this testimony was re
fused. Burke admitted falsifying
to Marshal Sawyer and said that
he did so because he considered it
none of the marshal's business
where he got the watch.
