ber of the commercial club members
who, together with himself, declded<
to extend a personal ivltatlon to the
company to look over the territory
here. With this object in view Mr.
Miller went to Spokane, Sunday,
after having secured an appointment
by telephone with Mr. VanTuyle,
manager, taking a large number of
of scenes of sections of the Clear
water National Forest, in order to
lay before the members of the com
pany the splendid possibilities for
motin picture scenery here. It was
very evident that the company of
ficials were well Impressed with
this section, and Mr. Miller was
promised a phone call Tuesday to
let him know when it could be
viewed by them in person. The
phone call <i*d not come, but Wed
nesday a telegram was received with
the following text: "Can't make it
this week.
Assure you will make
some pictures there."
In his talk with Mr. Van Tuyle.
Mr. Miller learned that the plans ot
the picture company cotemplatee the

Bureau of Public Roads, Department

of his visit is to ascertain the total

end extent of their improvement,

Why the United States is making
this survey is left to conjecture. It
is believed) by many, in view of
recent circumstances, that the sur
vey is the outcome of the disarma
ment conference now in session.
Should the United States reduce her
naval armament as contemplated by
the development of the conference,
there will undoubtedly be a large
amount of revenue on hand which
can be expended for other purposes.
Governor Davis, who "Is deeply in
terested in reclamation in the west
and particulary in southern Idaho,
together with other western govern
ors, endeavored to secure a fedteal
appropriation for such purposes but
learned there was litle or no money
available. In explaining this fact
it was revealed to them that out of
every $1.00 of revenue collected by
the United States government, 93
cents is used to maintain the army
and navy and seven cents goes to
pay the salaries of senators, repre
sentatives, judges and other offici
als who are not connected with
some government business which is
self suporting. and the remainder of
the seven cents is then used for re
clamation, roads andl ventures or like
nature. Of the 93 cents used) to
maintain the army and the navy,
considerable over 50 percent is used
for the navy. The above fact is
hard to believe, but true neverthe
