Active in Secur -1 A carefully prepared bill was handed j to the legislature on Monday by Repre-1 sentative O. C. Moore of Fremont county. | The measure asks for the establishing | and maintaining of an industrial ! school for the car« 1 , protection, training I und education of dependent and neglect ed children. Mr. Moore made the fol- ! lowing statement to a Statesman re porter last Saturday: "Senator Heath and myself have been working on this bill for several weeks. We have compared onr ideas with those of others engaged in reformatory work, searched the laws of other states bear ing on the matter and incorporated in the bill many features of the measure prepared by the Federation of Women's ( dubs of the state. "The urgency for the erection of a re form school is pitifully illustrated in the case of the lb-year-old girl recently convicted in Moscow for the stealing of j a horse and lmggy and sentenced to a j term in the state penitentiary. The state is big enough and wealthy enough to care for such children, and there I should be no hesitation on the part of | j the legislature in taking steps to found S an institution tor the purpose. The tirst j cost of the school will, of course, be con siderable, but it should lie almost self sustaining thereafter if properly con ducted. "In the bill which I expect to intro duce on Monday, provision is made for I the commitment, control and discharge of juvenile offenders When any boy or girl of sane mind, bet ween the ages I of 8 and 18, shall be convicted by any I judge of the district court, justice of the j peace or police magistrate for any crime except murder or manslaughter, the | court or judge may, if the accused he a ! proper subject therefor, cause an order to bo entered for the commitment of such criminal to the industrial school. "Onr plan is to build the school in an agricultural community on a plot of ground not less than 300 acres in ex tent. with permanent water rights. "The girls and boys are to be segre gated and housed in buildings erected on different parts of the farm on the cottage plan, and not more than 25 will be allotted to any one cottage, This plan has been tried elsewhere and found to work successfully. "The management of the school is to be under the board of trustees and the course of study will be formulated by the state superintendent of public in struction. In addition to this course, the boys are to have agricultural and industrial education, and the girls will Odd Fellows installed Officers. The public installation of the officers elected for the insuing term took place last Saturday evening at the Masonic hall under the directorship of Deputy Grand Master Geo. Harrigfeld, The officers installed were: John Pratt, N. G. ; James G. Gwinn, V. G. : Fred W. Rising, Rec. Sec.; D. L. Blevins, F. Sec. ; 'A. F. Yearian, Treas. ; M. E. Jamison, W. ; J. F. Shoemaker, ( ion. ; Ed ( 'arey, I. G. ; T. ( Combs, O. G. ; G. C. Bower man, R. S. N. (t. : A. Fultz, L. S. N. G. : Dr. Clark, R. S. Y. G. : Lee Borrows, L. S. Y. G. ; Geo. Swartz and W, M. Gray, S. H. : W. S. Wilson, Chaplain, After the installation ceremony a short program was rendered which was highly appreciated. The banquet tables were spread and the throng began de vouring the good things to eat at about 11 o'clock. This part of the program lasted until about 1 o'clock, when it ap peared that all were sufficiently filled to retire for the evening. Parker. 1 Mr. Leroy Farmer of Salt Lake City, arrived here last week with his family ' and effects, and intends to make this i ! his future home. He is a brother in j law of ('. H. Karlson of this place. Mr. j Farmer is a first class brick and stone j 'mason and builder. A mechanic of | i this kind is what Parker lias needed for years, and we have no doubt but what Mr Farmer will find plenty to do in j tlie building season. ' : Born to the wife of t larenoe !. Mason, lately deceased, a daughter Mother and child are getting along nicely.

Mrs. Louisa Coltrim, of Bountiful. „ from be given !V thorough training in domes tic science. "The V ill provides for the issue and sale of bonds to procure money for the erection, equipment and permanent maintenance of the school, and for the setting aside of certain public lands for the creation of a permanent mainte nance fund. "The people of Fremont county have been watching this move for four years and we have good reason to ask for the school at this time and for its location in Fremont county. We expect to give it onr attention until it is settled, and we think the people of the state demand it. now. The women's clubs of Idaho, and especially the Columbian club of Boise, bave rendered us valuable aid and counsel in onr labors, and we feel very grateful to them for their support. With the sentiment of the women of Idaho in our favor, we should have no difficulty in passing the measure. It is as Representative Moore says, not the proper thing to commit a 1(> | year-old girl to the state penitentiary, but in the absence of a reform school there was no alternative in the case cited by Mr. Moore—a rather sad com ment upon our state and its method of the morally unfortunate. That there is a crying need for the institution which Mr. Moore's bill contemplates, will be admitted by everyone who is acquainted with the facts in the case and is famil iar with the true situation, and that the same should be located in Fremont county cannot be disputed. Fremont is one of the largest counties in the state; has over 10 per cent of the school | population of the state: has excellent ! railroad facilities and is as accessible as any other county; has unlimited agri cultural resources, developed and un developed; is increasing its population and wealth more rapidly than any other comity of Idaho or perhaps of the west: has energetic, progressive citizens that will insure the success of any industry or institution that may he located in the county. Fremont can assure the state j that if the proposed industrial school is located here, as it should be, that her j citizens will guarantee the success of ! the institution. We challenge any county in the stale to a comparison with ns in the matter of climate, resources, development, energy or anything that goes to make up a deserving community. Let us join Messrs Moore and Heath in this matter and see that this needed in stitution is established, and established where it belongs—in Fremont county.

The evening passed very pleasantly until eleven o'clock, when all were taken to the dining room where supper was served.

Among the rules are the following: " All officers and employees who have attained tlie age of seventy years shall be retired. Such of them as have been twenty years in the service shall be pen sioned. "Locomotive engineers and firemen, conductors, flagmen, train baggagemen, yard masters, switchmen, bridge fore man, section foreman and supervisors, who have attained the age of sixty-five years may be retired Such of them as have been twenty years in tlie service shall be pensioned when retired "Officers and employees between sixty-one and seventy years of age who have been twenty years in the service, and who have become incapaciated, I I11!( y be retired and pensioned."
