CAPTAIN CONNOR GIVES SOME
OF THE FACTS AND FIGURES; The first Republican meeting in ; Blackfoot was held last Thursday evening. Captain A. H. Conner, can didate for Attorney General was the speaker and he devoted his speech to the subjects of taxation and the cab inet form of government. Speaking of increase in the tax levy of 5 mills in 1919 when the republi cans came into power, which meant an addition of about $2,400,000 to the taxes he said some 23 items made up this increase. The most important of these were the appropriations for public institutions. The previous dem ocratic administration had allowed these institutions to run down. The Lewiston Normal school had burned, and the insurance had been turned into the general fund for salaries. The increase attendance at the Uni -versity of Idaho from 350 to 1100 re quired additional expenditures. The requirements of these two institutions called for $402,000. The Soldiers' Home at Boise had burned and the insurance money had also been turned into the general fund for salaries etc. The state pen itentiary and charitable institutions had been left in a rundown and de plorable condition and these with the Soldiers' Home required $259,000. Highway improvements were de manded by the people and as the bond limit had been reached by the Alex , ander administration a levy of two mills had to be made for this purpose calling for $1,069,000. The republican administration had to pay $165,000 state bonds due under the Alexander administration but not paid. Legal liabilities of $167,000 in curred by the Alexander administra tion in 1917-18 also had to be paid by the incoming republican adminis tration. When the soldiers returned there was a call for soldier aid , health work, memorials and other things the people wanted to do for the men, and this called for $166,000. $119,000 was paid to the Gem Irri gation district to settle their water tax. This made the district sound and the state land board afterward sold the land under the law and got back $282,000 as a profit. These seven items total $2,307,500, and the balance of the $2,400,000 is made up of smaller items. This shows that the cabinet form of government had nothing to do with the increase of taxes.

Tfl J Captain Conner showed that in Wash ington the per capita state tax is $12.70, in Oregon $12-11, in California $6.71, Nevada $1S.47 and Idaho $6.13. Captain Conner then went into a very full explanation of the Cabinet form of government, showing where consolidation had abolished many unnecessary commissions, reduced ex- . penses and increased efficiency. It I had been found satisfactory in many other states and other states were ! preparing to adopt it. He made quite a point when he vead part of Governor Alexander'^ : message to the legislature recom mending a cabinet form of govern- j ment for Idaho. "You have heard that a certain candidate is going to save you a mil- , lion dollars, by abolishing the cabinet ' form of government," said Captain j Conner. "Now the fact is that if he would close the state house and abol ish every function of our state gov ernment he could only save you 15 cents out of each dollar of your taxes that goes to the state. Where is he going to save the million? It can't be done without closing our educa tional institutions, our asylums, de faulting on our bonds, and ceasing to function as a state. Fire Insurance—J. H.
