A B O Oo., 319 H..8th St, COLEMAN ON THE WITNESS STAND Former Deputy State Treas urer Is a Witness for the State. Fred Coleman, the defaulting deputy state treasurer, took the witness stand this morning in the suit of the state of Idaho versus the National Surety company of New York for the collec tion of 2135,077.49' on the 2200,000 bond of O. V. Allen, the defaulting state treasurer. With nufnerous books and documents on hand, Mr. Coleman deft ly found all entries desired, produced papers asked for by the special council for the state, T. C. Coffin, and gave an abundance of evidence concerning dates and time of entry and all the proceedings in connection with the securing of and filing of the bond of O. V. Alien. All day yesterday and for a short time this morning, John Eagleson, state treasurer, was on the stand, tes tifying concerning records and books given over to his possession when elected to the office of state treasurer. Jees B. Hawley, attorney for the Na tional Surety company, continued to make objections to much of the tes timony In order to save the record In case of appeal. Consequently the trial of the case will take considerable time. There are a few more speculators in the court room today than yesterday. During the recess at the noon hour' today O. V. Allen and Fred Coleman, defaulting and deputy state treasurer, PAYROU OF THE STATE UNO BOARD HOT DECREASED No Employes Dropped, as Was Intimated would Be the Oase —Business of De partment Increasing. The reorganisation of the state land department, following its removal from the annex .to the main section of the capitol building, appears upon Investi gation to have developed three Inter esting things, to-wit: The payroll has not been decreased, but Instead In creased and no employes have been dropped as yet, although the Impres sion was given out this would be the case after the transfer; the land board has discussed the matter In executive session, but came to no definite conclu sion owing to some objections raised, although It did agree on the March payroll; the business of the department Is increasing, loans having Increased 150 per cent In the past few months and sales 5 per cent, while Carey act business Is reviving and the land leas ing Is looking up. The expense of re moving the department from the an nex to the main building increased the ,total. It Is said to be doubtful whether the department Is better oft now than It was before. It appears crowded and congested In the new quarters. Claim Raises Warranted. The state land board passed a reso lution prior to the removal that after the department was Installed in itB new quarters such employes would be retained as named by it. As none of the employes has been dropped the maintenance force is just as large as It was before. The raises authorised In salaries were $5 per month in one Instance and $10 per month In two oth er Instances. It Is claimed In defense of these Increases that they were war ranted and that at any rate the pres ent status of the maintenance force Is but temporary, the board having left the matter open to take action on the objections raised later. The minutes of the board do not show the proceed ings of the executive session. This is explained by the fact that no definite agreement had been reached, the ar rangement was but temporary and when matters had reached a settled basis they would be shown on the min utes in full. Put in Extra Time. It Is claimed in defense of the main tenance force of the land department that during the past winter the clerks, bookkeepers, etc., have put in 144 dajs of extra time for which they have not received a cent of extra pay; that their work required careful comparing and checking, especially deeds, etc. In fact it is now claimed to be some what doubtful that with the lncreas'. In business the force of the land de partment can be cut at all, but In stead It may have to be increased. Some of the segregated funds of the department are running short and in adjusting the salaries at a recent meet ing the board had to authorize the payment of some salaries out of dif ferent department funds, It Is said. Legislativ* Appropriations. The last legislature appropriated a total of 2104,520 for the state board of land commissioner's office, divided as follows: General maintenance, 25000; salaries of officers, clerks and Aeld agents, 241,360; publishing legal no tices and United States land office fees, 23560; traveling expenses for land coin, mlssloner and Aeld agents, $7000; tim ber Are protection, including any and all duly authenticated Items, and charges whatsoever contracted, performed or rendered, $36,000; for carrying out provisions of house bill No. 128, pro viding for 40 years' extension on land contracts, 26 0 00; mortgage foreclosu ,-cs and taxes, $5000. The handling of the bonds by the treasury department, for which 21000 wus appropriated by the legislature, is carried on oo-operatlvely with the lan-1 department. L. L.

"The European war brought us face to face with the great question of pre paredness for national defense and we deplore the humiliating spectacle that the present administration at Washington has presented upon this Issue. "When the European war broke out, if we had had as the chief executive of this nation a statesman of broad and far-seeing vision the prepared ness Issue would long since huve been determined and some satisfactory pol icy enacted Into law.
