CASTING LOTS IN SUFFRAGE STATE Congressional Union Lead ers Establish Residence in States Where They Can Have the Ballot. Denied the right of suffrage In east ern states a nur be- of the women In terested In the work of the Women's Congressional Union who are with the suffrage special which will arrive in Boise Tuesday night of next week, have established residence in middle western and western states where they hatte the right to cast their ballot and assume the duties the franchise em powers them with. They are Mrs. Harriett Stanton Blatch of New ork and Miss Catherine Morey of Boston, both of whom have become residents of Kansas where they vote at Topeka, and Miss Helen Todd of New York, who has established her legal residence In California at San Francisco. Miss Vernon, who came to Boise In ad vance of the suffrage special, has es tablished her residence in Nevada at Reno. It is possible that a number of mem bers of the suffrage special will es tablish residence In Idaho If they are satisfied with conditions In this state upon their pending visit. Miss Vernon left last night for Po catello where she will make arrange ments for the suffrage meeting to be held in the Gr^te city Wednesday night following the arrival of the special. The suffrage delegation will go from Pocatello to Salt Lake where the final mooting will be held. Salt Lake Is the last stopping place of the special dur ing Its extended trip to the principal cities in the western suffrage states. Mrs. Fred Plttenger of this city will act as chairman of the suffrage mass meeting to be held In Boise next Tues day evening following the' arrival of the special. This meeting will be held in the Pinney theater. "It has been erroneously stated that the senate Judiciary committee had, without excuse held up the suffrage bill," said Miss Vernon discussing a published report regarding the status of the senate measure. "The bill was never before that committee. It was referred to the woman's suffrage com mittee and was reported out immedi ately with favorable recommendation. At the time the bill was introduced in the senate, a similar measure was in troduced in the house. The house measure is still being held up by the Judiciary committee and It is there we are having difficulty getting a report, favorable or otherwise. We are work ing to accomplish this."

The Swift Specific Co, AllaskbCa Splendid Laxative for Elderly People Has Been Prescribed by Well Known Physician for Many Years. The infirmities of a«« m especially manifest In a tendency to constipation, and call for treatment that will afford relief In an easy, natural manner. The rapid action of cathartic remedies and purgatives that shock the system should be avoided, more especially as the relief they offer Is "only temporary and Is usually more than offset by dis turbance to the vital oreans caused by their violent action. Nearly thirty years ago Dr. W. B. Caldwell, Montlcello, 111., prescribed a compound of simple laxative herbs that has since become the standard house hold remedy in thousands of homes. ,It acta easily and gently, yet with 'positive effect, without griping or other pain or discomfort.

The state Insurance commissioner has no Jurisdiction under the insur ance laws of this state over the issue of rate increase on the part of fire in surance companies, as has been point ed out heretofore is the case in Idaho at the present time. This fact was stated in a letter of State Insurance Commissioner Steele to Governor Alex ander. He says that for some time the department has been working on the rate increase problem but has been able to do nothing because of the laws. The letter of the commissioner to the governor follows: "Hon. M. Alexander, Governor of Idaho, ''Dear Sir: ' "Re Increase fire Insurance rates In Idaho. We have you: favor of May 1 re garding the ab-ve and in reply beg to advise that in view of the fact that Idaho does not nave a rate-making bureau this department has no super v'sion o/er the rates charged by fire companies nor does the law give us any powers in this respect. "For your information we have com plied the following figures which give the premiums received and losses paid by the fire companies in Idaho for the past three years. We are alSç includ ing the fees and taxes paid this depart ment for 1914 and 1R15: In 1913—Premiums received, $1,162, 689.48; losses paid, $774,153.25. In 1914—Premiums received, $1,278,» 100.39; losses paid, $789,925.43; fees and taxes, $44,208.89. In J915—Pram.urns received, $1,380, 818.87; losses paid, $850,966.72, fees hnd taxes, $46,"68.47. "In addi.'on to the losses paid and the fees and taxes, commissions to agents, together with other running ex penses must come out of the premiums received. "For the past year we have tried to find some n eans whereby we could control in a measure the acts of the board of fire underwriters of the Pa cific as affecting companies operating in Idaho, but after a thorough survey of the ln/surance code and the advices of the attorney general* we have been forced to -the opinion that the depart ment has no Jurisdiction over such matters.

TEAM SHUT OUT Ernest Wells Allows but One Hit and Is Given Gilt-edge Support by His Team-mates. \ Ernest Wells, brother of A1 Wells, demonstrated he Is one of the coming pitchers of the Boise high school team, for he heaved his club to a 14 to 0 victory against the Nampa high school yesterday afternoon at the local school park, and allowed but one stingy hit during the entire matinee. They are still singing the praises of' the youth ful pitcher, who showed so much real pitching ability In so short a period. The game was merely Incidental to Wells' pitching. He was given almost errorless support by team-mates. Nampa really never had a chance. The heavy sticking Boise players hopped onto Machus' offerings with a vengeance until they had collected 10 safe drives. They hit in singles, dou bles and triples, starting In the first frame and finishing In the eighth. Nampa was unable to break through Wells' offerings and were let down scoreless. Tomorrow afternoon at 4 o'clock the Boise high will ipeet the Payette high school at the local park. Payette has a fast team and should be able to give the local club a Cose game.
