H McCluskey of Riverside, farmer: R S. Brown, county commissioner, md J. A. Flanagan of Caldwell, farmer and former Equity manage»'. The fact that two present county office holders and Mr. Anderson, can didate ior district judge at the last el ection, signed Mr. Mason's nomination papers is taken here as evidence that the methods employed in reading him oi the select circle of gavored can didates among Progressives does no* meet with general approval. Saturday, when the Progressive county central committee met. this subject threatened .1 stormy session. Not only was Sheriff Mason on the block, but Mrs. Myrtle Bernard county treasurer also came in for her share of fire Mrs. Bernard also failed in obtaining the machine support in her fight for renomination and is run ning "on her own" after recently fil ing nomination papers with five party members'* signatures affixed. Mrs. Bernard's crime seems to have been After :t her failure to outset all deputies in her office in favor of Progressive job seekers. Newspaper representatives, with the single exception of Mrs. Nona Tatum Zeigler, Free Press repräsentative were barred from the meeting. Bu* the fact proceedings behind closed doors did not meet with unanimous ippr -.il of those in attendance paved the way for a general knowledge of what look place.

TSfiSÄ* Traffic this Year Heavier Than Ever, Bischoff Says More tourists are stopping at the Caldwell tburist park than hav before utilized Leal facilities at this season of the year, according to Wil liam Bischoff. city park superintend ent. are taxed daily and the registration book, kept by Mr. Bischoff. resembles c ever Facilities at the Caldwell park a sensus report. One reason assigned by Mr. Bis choff for this fact is that many west bound tourists are using the park this season while heretofore those going east constituted almost entirely those who visited Caldwell. This is due to the more general use of the Boise Nampa-Caldwell highway rather than the route through Star. In past sea sons according to Mr. Bischoff. local tourist visitors have been largely made up of parties returning east from Cal ifornia. This year, the northwest seems to be the magnet which is at tracting easterners. Among recent arrivals at the park have been parties from as far east as Pennsylvania. All sections of the country arc well represented BUS'HAT IS AGAIN IN RING State Treasurer An nounces Candidacy to Succeed Himself D. F. Banks, state treasurer, has formally announced bis candidacy to succeed himself. The .announcement was made this week during a visit to his home town of Caldwell and came after many friends had urged him to accept another terra. Those most familiar with the work of the state treasurers office know that rapid strides have been made during the past four years toward putting the state again on a sound cash basis. Much credit for this effort is due to Mr. Banks- who has been in charge of the state treasury since January, 1921. Mr. Banks is a former-service man. having been in command of Company G. 2nd Idaho Infamy on the Mexican border in 1916. He served in France during the World War with the 146th Field Artillery and with the 116tli Engineers. He is a graduate of the College of Idaho. In January 1919 when the state department of finance was first or r.anizcd under Commissioner Guy E Bowerman, Mr. Banks was one of his right hand men and gained valuable experience as an examiner and chief budget officer. made commissioner of finance and In 1920 Mr. P.mk was remained in charge of the important work of that office until he took charg. of the state treasury, following his election. There is a growing feeling in Re publican circles that the States 1m ancial offices should hold men experi enced in meeting their peculiar prob lems so long as possible, in the inter est of efficiency and economy, this reason probably more than any other party leaders feel that Mr Panks will be nominated at the stale convention to succeed himself.

F. Stephens Shows Laden Branches at Meeting The Stephens Orchard showed at the summer meeting of the Idaho State Horticultural society at Caldwell last Saturday -simple apple branches of Grimes Golden, Wiuesap, Jona than and R me Beauty, as an inlustra tion of what Idaho can produce in an off year. The branch of Grimes Golden, three feet nine inches in length has 103 apples. The better class of Wine sap and Rome Beauty apple trees promise a car lead from single acres. These orchards arc being cultivated with a Fordson tractor and 28 discs three times monthly. This method of tillage conserves subsoil moisture' develops vigorous new growth with abundant, healthy foliage, which prom ises to support superior commercial fruit and to develop strong, vigorous fruit buds, for 1925. Thinning of the fruit will be in progress as soon as the first cutting of h is stacked. Th'e Stephens orchard show was thi center of attraction at the meeting Mr Stephens also exhibited branches from three or four trees planted in 1922 which in their second year will yield 40 or 50 .apples each this season.

"If this is due, the bill wiOII be sent to the president for approval. "If it is not done, the bill will he returned to the house and 1 doubt if we would ever again be able to secure the passage of the bill in view of the determined opposition which levcloped to reclamation during the asl session of congress."
