J. < k BOND, Chairman. Attest : F. M. FISHER, Clerk. STATE Idaho news lureau Colonel Roosevelt for President. What chance there is, if any, there is of suc cess in this effort cannot at this time be foretold. There is a general sentiment, however among the Republicans and many of the members or the Progrès sive party, that this is an attempt en gineered by ihe Democrats and is in tended to enhance the chances for suc cess of that pirty Those who have returned from Twin Kalis after attendance at the state con vention, state that it was the best gathering of the kind seen in the state for more than ten years. Of the 612 accredited delegates t« tue convention there were present something over 400 in person, and there was represented the entire vote of the convention, save 48 being representatives of counti distant in poiit of time from Twin Falls that the delegates could not attend. Some of the delegates present, notably those from Idaho county, traveled 60 hours to read Twin Falis. The delegates elected arc regarded as fairly representative of the varying orations in Idaho politics. Although the convention was strongly pro-Borah in sentiment, 'here is no particular evi i dence of this in the delegation sent to C ?* iCag0 v Nor wt ; re an y instructions I S lven the delegation nor any particular i evidence in the platform of an ex Pected effort in Borah's interest at the | ua tional convention, the Republican i delegation besides Senators Borah and CAPITAL GOSSIP. Boise, April 25.—Now that the Re-I publicans and Progressives have held their state conventions, in Twin Falls I and Boise respectively, and have elected delegates to he Chicago national con ventions, a g>od deal of comment and ! curiosity is being evidenced on the future action of the two parties in this ! state. It is apparent that the Progrès- I sives are hop ng to hold that party to gether as a loeal organization, even ! should the Republicans nominate Brauy, including Judge James A. Ail- j shie and E. R. Whitla, of Coer d'Alene; Stanley A. Easton, Shoshone county ; | John-W. Hart, of Jefferson; E. H. Dewey, of Caiyon; F. W. Gooding, of Lincoln. The alternates were C. F. Koelsch, of Ada; H. C.

The .Progressive state convention, which was held in Boise on Saturday last, in the resolutions passed, was in sistent that the only man of stature in the United States was Colonel Roose velt, and the delegation was instructed to be for him all the way through. It was decided tfiat there should be six teen delegates, each of whom being en titled to half a vote. The delegates se lected were R 8. Sheridan, Ada; Paul Davis, Ada; H. E.

Although the call for the convention provided for a member ! ship of something like 510 delegates, I less than 150 were in attendance, these representing party organization in onlv ! a few counties of the state, 0 n demand of one of the members of the state land board, the following data regarding the state land depart ment has recently beeu gathered and can be depended upon as accurate. Total acreage now under lease 914, 471.3 acres. Applications for leases al ready filed and waiting issuance, when added to the above, amount to in ex cess of 1,000,000 acres of land leased. The interest and rental collected by the state from all sources amount for the year 1915 to $545,158.40. The amount of interest due the state on loans prior to January 1, 1914, which still remains unpaid, is $12, 149.60. ' The total amount of loans in arrears before January 1, 1915, is $114,343. The total acreage of state lands sold in 1914 was 26,995.87 acres, and in 1915 was 27,468.25 acres. The total receipts on grazing leases for the year 1914 were $24 946.59, and tor 1915, $22,905.11. The decrease is accounted for in the fact that in 1915 a reconstruction ofv the leasing qnes tion has been going on, resulting in the giving over to agricultural purposes large areas heretofore held under the graving leases which are now in course of ( ensummation. The total amout received for agri cultural leases in 1914 was $17, 774.69t and in 1915, $19,540.28. The total amount received from sales of timber in 1914 was $1,200, and in j 1915, $109,102.47, The total amount received from all | sales and leases during the year 1914 amounted to $751,206.26, and in 1915 to $653,578.98. The decrease in 1915 over 1914 is accounted for in the fact that payments on state land contracts were not demanded in 1915 on account of the law providing for the extension of such contracts under the forty-year plan and the allowance by said board uiler said law of the dividing of 1915 principal payments into the extension contracts. The total acreage granted to the state by the government through the enabling act and special grants amounts approx imately to 3,318 080 acres. The exact acreage cannot be definite ly determined on account of the school grants embracing sections 16 ami 36 in ea «h township, the total acreage of which it is considered amounts to about 2,650,000 acres, which added to the spe cial grants for other state institutions, a 8fT Te 8 a tes the total above given. The total acreage sold up to date is 430,680 acres. The total acres remaining unsold and in possession of the state is approx imately 2,887,400 acres. The proportionate share that the state university receives from the special grant lands is .475 per cent, or $25. 907.41, of the year 1915. AN AMERICAN FALLS INTERVIEW Mr. Travis Tells His Experience. The following brief account of an in terview with an American Falls man eight years ago, and its sequel, will be read with keen interest by every citi zen : William J. Travis, lawyer, Ameri can Falls, Idaho, says: "I suffered for ten years from kidney and bladder trou ble. I doctored anti used many medi cines, but never got more than tempora ry relief. I had severe pains through my kidneys and between my shoulders, and I couldn 't stoop without being dizzy. I couldn't get much rest at night, as my back was weak aud pained terribly. The kidney secretions scald ed in passage and were too frequent, obliging me to get up at night. Seven boxes of Doan 's Kidney Pills rid me of kidney and bladder trouble. You may continue using the indorsement I gave Doan's Kidney Pills in 1907." Price 50 cents at all dealers. Don't simply ask for a kedney remedy—get Doan's Kidney Pills—the same that Mr. Travis had.
