A communication was sent to Gov ernor-elect Moore, vigorously oppos ing the re-nominatlon of Miles Can non as commissioner of agriculture. The association took action In re gard to penalties on delinquent taxes and a motion was made favoring the rescinding of interest and penalties of the delinquents. It was also re solved that the legislature be in structed to pass a law governing the price of farm commodities so that the price of the commodity should be the same throughout the state, less the freight differential.

At Dustin's Pharmacy FREIGHT RITE REDUCTION SLOW WORN THE ASSOCIATION MAKING VEKY SLOW PROGRESS IN RETURN ING TO 1914 RATES Interstate Commerce Commission Has Not Pa>sed on It« Although It is Now a Year Old The Idaho Freight Rate Reduction Association which has the matter up with the railroads and the state pub lic utilities commission of a general reduction of freight rates in the state, back to the 1914 level and an emer gency rate on coal into the state and potatoes, hay, grain and fruits out of the state until the freight rate matter can be readjusted, finds itself com ing in contact with set rules and reg ulations established by the state board of public utilities and the in terstate commerce commission which prove n severe handicap. The state public utilities coramta sion expressed willingness to co-op erate wtlh the association and took the matter up by wire with railroad executives, particularly in the matter of the emergency rate on coal Into the state, bringing out the fact that the people of Southern Idaho, throughout many localities have suf fered and will suffer this winter on account of the high price of coal. The railroad companies take refuge be hind a statement of the Interstate commerce commission to the effect that no action can be taken on the present request until a similar re quest made last March has been de cided. In other wo rtfs the matter has been before the interstate commerce commission almost a year with no de cision or action of any kind. It Is conditions of this kind that the freight rate reduction association hopes to correct. The admission is made on the part of the railroad companies that the freight rates charged are too high and refuge Is taken in the statement that the railroads are not In position to help themselves. The object of the freight rate re duction association Is to gather euch data and information that will make It possible to make a showing that | result * n ^uced ^frelght^ ratea^ If the organization is unable to se cure direct results the matter will be taken up direct with the state legis lature and members of the Idaho congressional delegation In Washing ton. It has been clearly shown to thn mind of any reasonable person that there must be a reduction In freight rates If business conditions through iout southern Idaho are to make a change for the better any time soon. The people of this section of the state are thoroughly In earnest and have determined to rid themselves of this heavy charge which Is acting as a handicap to business development and expect to accomplish that result through the medium of the recently organized association. HIGHWAYS IN GOOD CONDITION Colorado's state highways are in excellent shape for travel and thou sands of farmer stockmen from Colo rado anil neighboring states are plan ning to motor to Denver the week of January 13 to 20 to attend the Nation al Western Stock and Horse ahow The many conventions and associa tion meetings to he held during the week will draw many members and delegates and those who don't motor in will find the fare and a third rate on the railroads a money saver.
