X Seven farmers appeared before the 1 board of county commissioners this morning and made vigorous protests • against calling a *300,000 bond election ; for the Improvement of the roads of . Ada county. The objections were that ' taxes were already too high, that the bonded indebtedness of the county wan high, when it war taken into consider ation that there were not only *270,000 in county bonds out, but in addition ; school bonds, bonds against the city, highway district bonds and bonds for » Irrigation canals, the interest on which all had to be paid by direct tnxatiou, except tlje former bond issue for good roads, which was paid by a special automobile tax at present, but which law might bo changed, even at the next session of the legislature, thus caus ing additional burdens upon property • owners.

Issue and was certain that it would not carry. He said the commissioners would do a bettor work by taking the money that an election would cost and spending it upon putting the roads in to condition. He stated he favored good roads, but not a bond election, that he favored the use of the extra auto license being expended on the roads and with a small bond issue, good cross roads could be built lead ing to the main thoroughfares, thus doing a good work without going to sueli a heavy expense. He stated the valuations In the city and county were from one-third to one-half higher than they should be and higher than <n other sections of the state. Over at Nampa, he stated, the real estate deal ers were selling land and business was good at Twin Falls and Idaho Falls, where land was not assessed as high as it is here and where, he stated, new land was producing better crops than are raised here. There are three classes of men in Ada county, stated the former commis sioner, professional men and business men who are living oft the producer and consumer and thirdly the men who do nbt pay any taxes but are able to vote and willing to put a burden on the tax payers of the county. Compared With Illinois. Mr. Briggs took the commissioners back to Illinois and pointed out four counties in that state where he stated, taxes were much lower, the counties . c , -, ..

He stated that he represented in. terests which pa,d taxes in Ada county r7! . T 8 e r° Un n had voiced objections. He said they . * „ ' were not asking the commissioners to build good roads, but merely to call an election and to ascertain the senti ment of the residents of the county and If they ex, cased themselves by a ma Jority vote in favor of a bond issue, then the matter was settled, but that it lay with the people. He stated he was sure from the sentiment he had heard expressed that 70 per cent of the people of the county wanted to bond the county to complete the system of good roads and all that was being ask ed of the commissioners was to hold an election and let them express them selves. He declares those whom he represented favored it and felt the commissioners would not be doing their duty, tf in the face of the petition, they refueed to call th> election. Others speaking in the Interests of richer, where there was coal mining, manufacturing and big pay roils and >' et hp not one of those unties hud as S° od a system of roads as Ada county now had and even a county, which held the capital of that great state, did not have as good a system i s Ada county. Farmers living under the Riden baugh canal, stated Mr. Briggs, soon have a bond issue coming due which will cost them *3.50 per acre. Then, he stated, there is an additional assess- ment of *2.50 per acre for interest on outstanding bond.) and maintenance. Add some *3 to *3.50 more per acre for taxes, he said, and likely 60 cents per acre for a drainage system for the benefit of Nampa and Caldwell, and farmers here will be paying *9.10 per acre on their land on a valuation of *225 per acre, which he declared was too heavy a burden to carry. He urg ed that the commissioners take no ac tion in calling the election. Others who spoke against the bond election were. H. G. Wilson, Robert Wilson, A. Wilson, Frank Hammer, Mr. Baldwin and W. R.

The proposition of organizing a cadet system in the Boise high school, serv ice in which would be compulsory for the older students, was discussed at some length at the meeting of the board of trustees last night and finally taken under advisement. W. T. Booth, who has been familiarizing himself with the cadet system in the high school at Cheyenne, which has ac quired national reputation, felt that a similar system should be installed in the high school here, the preparedness program in the Unit ed States and stated the belief that good military training received by young men was an aid in their physi cal development and would give them a knowledge which might be of great value to the nation. Superintendent Rose differed with Mr. Booth concerning compulsory training, but stated he bel'eved more attention should be paid to the physi cal development of the students, both boys and girls, and he urged action along that line. March 31 was the date set by the board for the closing of school for the spring vacation of one week. The board also authorized Mr. Rose to use his own Judgment in granting a half ^ay holiday to the students during "dress up, clean-up and paint-up" week, which was asked by the committee in charge. Mr. Rose informed the board upon a query, that school would close this year on June 9. The school board granted the use of the Boise high school again for the Boise Summer Normal school and stated they would be pleased to have Mr. Rose officiate at Us head as re quested by the statë board.

Mew Ta* Cky DEFENDS REPORT Committee of Farmers' Pro tective League Passes a Number of Resolutions. ■ The Farmers Protective league, an association tor the protection of the farmers on the Idaho Irrigation com pany project, has forwarded through its president, Fred Gooding, its vice presi dent, Ben Dal*rah, and its secretary treasurer. Fred F. Gwin, a set of reso lutions adopted by the resolutions com mittee of the league, indorsing the ac tion of the last legislature in creating the irrigation and drainage code com mission and its report on the condi tions relative to the Idaho Irrigation company project, standing by Ahe truthfulness of its findings. "We hereby disapprove," says the resolutions, "the unwise criticisms pub lished regarding this commission and Us report, as being made by an ill advised and misinformed critic or critics." The league condemns in an other resolution the attempt made by representatives of the above-named company before the land board to lay the blame for the injury to crops and orchards of the projoct through the water shortage, to the settler». It is asserted the loss was due to the short ness of water delivered or the misman agement of water on hand with the company. The league states It has come to its knowledge there is a move ment afoot to create a desire for the Carey act principal of purchasing and contracting for a proportionate amoun* of the waters available for the irriga tion of any irrigation project and this .policy is branded as "an inestimable detriment to all Irrigation projects and would spell ultimate financial ruin to the majority of the settlers there on." Other resolutions passed recommend ed to the legislature that the legis lation now existing affecting the Idaho Irrigation company project fixing the duty of water at five-eighths of an Inch per acre continuous flow be not changed; branding as false the reports taken to the state land board that the settlers on the project are not indors ing the activities of the league; con demning and resenting the alleged re ported threat made by the company that If settlers' Joined the league the company would foreclose their con tracts and make them trouble and ex pense; indorsing the action of the land board ordering the sale of land in the project stopped until the state en gineer con complete a survey of the project; demanding that a survey and recheck be made of the canals, head gates, etc., on the project and that the true condition of them may be ac curately ascertained. stitutes this year because of sickness. The board instructed the secretary to give notice that in the future ull bills to be allowed for the month had to be in the hands of the secretary not later than the fifth of each month. Superintendent Rose gave a report on the operations of the schools of Gary, Ind., and the system used there, but stated he did not think such a sys tem would be practical here.
