Mr. Carl Lewis of this city, who was unfortunate enough to have his arm broken, is shaking hands with him self for the fact that he had been ini tiated the day before the accident into the Fraternal Brotherhood, an insur ance order which pays accident bene fits, as well as life, permanent disabil ity and oldage benefits. He has just received a check for the amount of his benefits from the su preme lodge of the order, which is located in Los Angeles, California, and he is very much pleased with the prompt manner in which his claim w as paid. The Fraternal Brotherhood was or ganized here in August, and this is the first claim. The lodge has a good membership here and is growing rap idly, as it takes both men and women into the same lodge, and members do not have to die to win. The policy they offer is a very at tractive one, and the member wins whether he dies or lives. For total disability the full face of the policy is paid. Mr. Chas. Dempstr, the state man ager, is in the city and expects to ini tiate another class soon. He is also organizing the drill team, which will be in charge of Captain Loomis, one the city's very efficient drill master. T. F. B. drill team consists of not less than eight young men and eight young ladies, and it makes a very attractive team, and it is a valuable experience for the members. ♦ * $30,000 HOTEL FOR JEROME. Investment Co. Anticipates Growth of Town. Jerome, Ida., Oct. 10.—The finishing touches of the Twin Falls North Side canal are now being given. Donald Grant, the contractor, has completed his contract for the main canal ahead of time. One of the most prominent features of the canal is the rubble wall, which is four and one-fourth miles long and 10 feet high. The width on the bottom is a little over half the height of the wall. The wall is con structed of lava rock and concrete and is a masterpiece of masonry. O'Neill & Bro. were the sub-constractors un der Donald Grant and built the wall. Donald Grant and his score of sub contractors are now actively engaged on the 300 miles of lateral. Water will be ready for delivery, as per Mr. Kuhn's promise to the settlers, April 1, 1909. Hustling Young City. The new town of Jerome is very much in the public eye these days and is certainly a busy young city. Je tome is located in the center of the Twin Falls North Side tract, 20 miles southeast of Shoshone. The new pub lic school was opened September 15th with over 80 scholars in attendance. Jerome has a state bank, large general stores, two blacksmith shops, a beauti ful drug store, two restaurants, two lodging houses, six real estate offices, a plant for making concrete blocks and a large lumber yard, one saloon, one lunch counter and billiard hall combined, two butcher shops and a cold storage plant and an up-to-date newspaper. Jerome has at present about 300 population and by May, next will have 1000. "The Idaho" Hotel. On October 1 ground was broken for the new modern hotel, "The Iadho." It will be pushed to completion as fast as conditions permit and will in all probability be finished by the first of the year. The railroad grade is now finished from Gooding to Jerome, a distance of 26 miles, passing through Wendell, which si just half way be tween Gooding and Jerome. Many car loads of ties and rails are being re ceived at Gooding dally. It will take over 225 cars of equipment to lay the track from Gooding to Jerome. On or about Thanksgiving day the citi zens of Wendell and Jerome will be hold a train of cars drawn by a loco motive. The electrical equipment will be installed during 1909. AH Records Smashed. The North Side company has cer tainly made good and broken all rec ords of canal building known. There haB never been such rapid conquering cf desert conditions in the history of reclamation work. Amid dust arid heat, under, at times, conditions that would almost discourage the strongest heart, the great work has been guided by a master hand. Money has flowed like water and yet not a dollar misop plied. Mr. Kuhn has certainly had the support of as loyal a staff in his march across the desert as Grant had. It has been a mighty victory,—180,000 acres of Idaho's best and most fertile soil reclaimed, homes created for thousands of people, opportunities furnished on every hand to the wage earners, to the capitalist, the farmer, -—in fact, all classes have been includ ed in the great triumphant march from desert to garden. Towns have been started, schools and churches built, a railroad constructed, water works un der construction, hundreds of miles of canals made, an empire born, millions of dollars of taxable property added to Idaho's support and advancement—and all this accomplished in 18 months—a record of development, of achievement never before made in the United States of like class. v Both Will Grow Rapidly. Jerome and Wendell will be large, prosperous towns, located in the heart of one of the richest tracts of land in the west. These towns are being fitted up with every modern improvement, electric lights, sewerage, electric rail road, electric power for manufactur ing purposes. Truly it is good to dwell in a land of action, where there is work for all who are willing and opportunity knocks at every man's door. Idaho may well be proud of the Twin Falls North Side tract and its wonderful record.—Statesman. CONSTITUTIO \AL AMENDMENT. NO. 11. House Joint Resolution No. 3. By Seawell and Freehafer.
