ARE WE GOING AFTER OUR DUES? In the state treasury over in Boise there is, or will be in the very near future, available for Bear Lake coun yt, $27,000 for road building pur To get this money Bear Lake poses. county must match the same two to one, making a total of $81,000 to spend on highways in this county. Without putting up $54,000 against this money of the state, the state money will be lost to Bear Lake. This situation occurred about two years ago, when we had a credit of some $17,000 but because of the in ability of the county to match the money at that time, or through some other difficulty, the money was di verted into other channels by the stato road commission. Bear Lake county cannot afford to contribute to road building in a distant county,.which will surely oc cur again unless steps are taken soon to devise means for matching the state money. An election to vote on road bonds in a sum sufficient to match the available state money has been suggested, and will probably receive the endorsement of the coun ty commissioners. We can well af ford to bond for this amount, es pecially in view of the fact that there is a probability of the federal gov ernment matching the appropria tions of both the county find state. If such is the case, it will mean that for every Bear Lake county dollar expended in road construction we will get three dollars in value. It is high time to think of these matters. It will require consider able time to put over an election and other necessary items. SCHOOL BUILDING SITUATION It appears that the state legisla ture will have to come to the assis tance of Montpelier in solving its school building problems as they ap pear at the present time. Bonding ex perts tell us that we are bonded to within $8,000 of our limit, which makes the dream of a fine new high school fade away, almost out of sight. school fade aay, almost out of sight. It is within the power of the legis lature to enact laws that will over come this situation There are var ious ways in which new legislation would make it possible for Mont pelier to have the needed facilities for educating the children: One is to levy a state school tax. The other is to change the valuation plan as applied to railroads. Instead of placing a total valuation on all rail road holdings and prorating it ac cording to mileage, as at present, and giving the communities wherein are located shops, roundhouses and extra equipment the benefit of the assessment of such property, it would mean much to Montpelier, and would probably solve our school problems. For example: Pocatello with railroad facilities running into hun dred's of thousands of dollars, re ceives no more benefit in point of taxes, than does Power county, where there is nothing more than straight mileage, unless the trackage within Pocatello or Bannock county exceeds the mileage within Power county. The same condition is true in Bear A small school dis Lake county, trlct in this county with as much rail road mileage as Montpelier, has as high a taxing limit as Montpelier, notwithstanding the valuable rail road facilities within the Montpelier independent school district and the fact that our school population is ten times as great. Men who have studied the tax fea fare say that it would not increase local taxes to levy for school purpos es in the state, but that the big cor porations in the northern and sparse ly settled portions of the state, who do not contribute in the way of taxes to the educating of the children, are the ones who would make up the de ficiency in the school funds of the various districts in the state. it seems reasonable that they should help maintain tho educational sys tem of the state wherein they op erate Until these problems are given at tention *by the legislature many school districts in the state of Idaho will have hard rowing to expand the system as conditions warrant.

Clemens of Tacoma Ledger Laughter held high court at the Tacoma Theatre last evening and the packed house passed the verdict of approval upon tho farce comedy of fering, "Are You a Mason?" The members of the local organization of Tabocat Grotto, under whose aus pices the performance was arranged were out in full force as was evidenc ed by the liberal sprinkling of fezzes over the auditorium. Leo Deitrichstein's farce-comedy^ of a quarter of a century ago is just as funny today aa it was then, and although quite a few of the lines were changed to meet the popular topics of the day, the rich comedy and ludicrous situations were the same. From the rise of the first curtain when the audience sat in a defiant "I dare you," mood, until the curtain dropped upon the third act, the inter est grew and the hilarity increased until almost a continuous laugh greeted the actors in the final epi sodes. But two musical numbers are In troduced but why spoil good farce with song numbers? As it was, the story ran smoothly and was only in terrupted by the hearty outbursts of merriment. Charles Caulkins and Billy Evans as "brother Masons," and Orrln Brandon as the prospective candi date, were immense. Angus as the suspicious mother-in law, could not have been better, and Estelle Warfield, Catherine Mae and Claire Morrow as the daughters fill ed every requirement. E. Mac Der mid as a "legit" thespian was a scream in a part that was all too short. Frank Stevens did a "Char ley's Aunt" stunt that was appre ciated. The other parts were in, ca pable hands. As a revival of an old-time stage Katherine success the farce-comedy was the bestraf argument for the revival of other plays of days gone by. In comparison with some of the new comedy dishea up in the past few years. There is something solid in "Are You a Mas on?" The company's engagement concludes with the performance to night. .

Georgetown Notes (Special Correspondence) GEORGETOWN DRAMATIC CLUB PRESENTS "THE IRON HAND" Last Friday evening, January 20, the Georgetown Dramatic Club un der the direction of Edwin E. Pinck ney, presented tho four act drama, "Tho Iron Hand" in the Georgetown Lall, to a crowded house. The play ïs one of those short snappy lined plots whch requires a lot of study for the characters to properly interpret their parts. "The Iron Hand" be longs to that class of plays that are clean, elevating, and exciting, filled wth quick, snappy action, thrilling situations, and containing much bright comedy. The story of the play is simple, plain and easily un derstood, and yet wonderfully inter esting, for it rivets the at9ention of the audience from the rise of the first curtain until its final fall. The action goes forward with a torrent ike rush and the denouement is un forseen until, with a few graphic touches, it is cleverly brought about in the last act. The casting of the play was a fortunate one, for each character seemed to fit his part ad mirably. And with the careful stag ing and interpretation the presenta tion was highly creditable, not only to the players themselves, but to the community in general. For it is a rare occasion indeed, that a number of amateurs are able to stage a play wth the same degree of success, and to meet with the ready, magnetic in spiration from their audience. . To pick the stars would be to slight those who carried the lighter roles. True, some parts were heavi er than others and required more action, but there were no "filler" parts. Each one had his part to play and played it yell. The part of Oliver Montford, who knew neither fear nor pity, the cold, hard, fearless, yet polished villian, as played by Ernest Hoff, left nothing to be de sired in that line. In fact the part way played so well that had his audi ence not known him for a kindly, progressive, upright citizen they would easily have taken him for a professional crook. The wealthy, young artist, Harmon Van Dorn, melancholly and auspicious, very much in love with his wife, was in terpreted very artistically by Alma Nielsen. Edwin E Pinckney in the dual role of Jack Minton, Montford's ward, and afterward Percy Plantaga net, the vaudeville actor, was a piece of highly creditable impersonation. R E. Paine, in the part of Ikey, the Jew, "der most honest man," was a scream from start to finish, both in laughs and actions. Alvin E. Peter sen as Hawkins, and Katie Neilsen as Hannah, the servant girl, were both creditable in their minor roles. Bella, Jack's sister, and afterwards »Mrs Van Dorn, as acted by Jennie Pinckney, is an emotional part, call ing for considerable dramatic abili ty. And she was at her best Fri iay night. It is rare that an amateur makes a stronger appeal to her audience than she did in her part. De Nina Hayes, as Lizzie, Jack's wife, a popular ac tress, was popular with her audience, and acted tho part of a "twentieth century woman" to perfection. Then Louise Petersen, as Mrs. Dibble, po sitively a positive widow, was right at home in her part, and did some good acting. The characters were all good, so much so, that there is little room for improvement. The players aro indebted to Mr. N. R. Larsen for his construction of tho new scenery, which had such a strong influence on tho actors. Tho orchestra, composed of Joseph Bee, Bennie Munk, Thornton Young, William Johnson and Alma Nielson played soma appropriate selections. The male quartette was a valuable assistant in the third act, and their numbers were highly appreciated. ST. CHARLES NOTES. The work on the amusement hall is progressing nicely. The foundation will soon be in and the lumber is be ing sawed at one of the local saw mills and will soon be on the ground ready for the carpenters. Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Arnell of Provo, Utah, are visiting Mr. and Mrs. Swan O. Arnell. Richard S. Pugmire has been laid up with a lame leg for some time, but is much improved at this time.
