To Exterminate BtbU Coyote«.
Washington, D. C., April 26.—The ap
propriation by Congress in the urgent
deficiency act of 476.000 for-tke control
of rabies among coyotes in the West
has enabled the bureau of biological
survey of the U. S. department of ag
riculture to put five inspectors and 190
hunters in the field in addition to its
existing organization. These men are
to serve in Oregon, Nevada, California
and Idaho, and along the border in
Utah. In addition to these measures
the Nevada rabies commission has sig
nified its intention of expending a large
sum of money under recommendations
made by the biological survey, and it
is probable that other states will do
likewise. Stockmen and ranch owners
are co-operating by furnishing horses
and forage free of charge. The import
ance of preventing the spread of the
disease is fully realized.
The coyote has always been a pest
to stockmen, but with the advent of
rabies it has become a serious danger
to persons as well as stoek. In many
sections of Oregon, Idaho, California
and Nevada, parents are afraid to send
their children to school unless they are
well guarded, and there is always dan
ger that domestic dogs will be bitten by
the mad animals and spread the dis
ease to the families of their owners.
In Oregon and Nevada 'over 100 per
sons have received the Pasteur treat
ment for rabies within the past three
years, and stock interests have suffered
severely. In one feed lot in Winne
mucca, Nevada, a single coyote caused
the loss of twenty-three head of 3-year
old steers.
Although this is regarded as the most
serious, it is not the first outbreak of
rabies among coyotes in the western
states. In 1911 the disease made its ap
pearance in Wallowa county, Oregon,
and spread southward. This infesta
tion still continues. In the spring of
1915 the disease made its first appear
ance in northern Nevada and at the
present time southwestern Idaho, north
eastern California, and approximately
the northern half of Nevada are infest
The normal coyote is cunning but
cowardly, and has a particular aver
sion to the scent of a human being.
When stricken with rabies, however, it
does not hesitate to snap at everything
in reach and to attack men as well as
dogs and cattle. In this condition it
does not eat and consequently can not
be killed by poisoned baits.
In controlling the disease the bu
reau of biological survey purposes first
to prevent its spread by killing off the
coyotes along the borders of the infest
ed districts. After this has been done,
the infested areas themselves can be
effectually rid of the animals and the
disease stamped out.
Indigestion nearly always disturbs
the sleep more or less, and is often the
cause of insomnia. Eat a light supper
with little if any meat, and no milk;
also take one of Chamberlain's Tablets
immediately after supper, and see if
you do not rest much better. Obtain
able everywhere.
Harmonious Republican Convention.
Fred Gooding opened the Republican
sUte.delegate convention at Twin Falls
last Thursday in the absence of Chair
man Evan Evans, who was taken ill the
night previous.

Frederick E. 8. Randall, of Nez
Perce county, was the unanimous choiee
of the body for temporary chairman,
but was attacked with a fainting spell
during his address, and his position was
later filled by the intrepid Col. Thomas
R. Hamer, of Fremont county. Mr.
Randall later returned and finished his
David Burrell, of Powers county, was
selected as secretary of the convention,
and all committee appointments were
made during the forenoon.
An ovation was given to the mention
of the name of Senator Borah.
Everything moved with the greatest
harmony, and good spirits prevailed
during the morning session. An ad
journment was taken until 2 o'clock.
During the early part of the after
noon the convention proceeded with the
consideration of resolutions and plat
form and the naming of eight delegates
and eight alternates to the Chicago con
The following delegates were named

Early Wednesday morning Republic
an delegates and party leaders in un
official capacities commenced to arrive
in Twin Falls, until the opening of the
convention saw the largest political
gathering that ever assembled in south
ern Idaho. It was noticeable that full
delegations were present from nearly
every county in the state, and from ev
< ry section the party representatives re
flected the full confidence that it is a
Republican year.
North Idaho was well represented,
though there was nothing to show that
there was any feeling of geographica'
division or that an effort wouid be
made to draw lines on that basis. Po
catello and American Falls led in num
bers present, as each place sent many
boosters to lend moral backing to their
delegates. At the latter place the band
had accompanied the representation and
at all stations enroute served to ac
quaint the townspeople with tlfe fact
that Power county was not to be over
looked. At Burley, Senator D. W. Da

and an ideal tonic, too.
Order direct from
r A
vis and genial Joe Priest general agent
for the Short Line, led the band in a
snake dance through the principal
streets, accompanied by the entire train
load of convention-bound Republicans.
Through the Commercial club, accom
modations were provided for all vis
itors, though it was necessary to utilize
a number of Pullman cars that were
spotted conveniently for the occasion.
Naturally, with the meeting of so
many prominent party workers, the
forecasting of the result in the guber
natorial primary race proved an inter
esting topic for discussion. The formal
announcement of Herman Taylor just
prior to the convention furnished his
followers with material to back their
assertions that he was in the fight to
stay and would make a creditable show
ing. George Crum men were much in
evidence and predicted that he would
secure a favorable split from the vote
or the northern counties.
The general support promised Senator
D. W. Davis, of American Falls, was
somewhat enhanced by the evidence of
unanimous backing which he is receiv
ing from his own section. His proposed
plan to make Idaho ultimately taxless
has caused more than passing consider
ation and has secured for him the
friendship of every part of the state.
Captain Davis, of Boise, appeared to
have firm supporters in various sections.
Throughout the convention and pre
convention discussions, a feeling of
confidence and harmony was evident,
which points to party success.
