Rejuvenation of the Boise barracks
was the task that Major Martin, com
missioned to prepare the buildings for!
the reception of the Second Idaho, en-:
tered heartily into today. He started
with a flying squadron of plumbers
with the result that an excellent show-|
ing was made before the day was
over in connecting the heating plants
and the water pipes so that water for
domestic use can be had. Carpenters
and other helpers will follow.
Major Martin hopes to be able to
house the entire regiment in the build
ings. It now' looks as though none of
them will have to go into tents except,
for mess. Committees are also busy
preparing for the reception of the reg
iment on its arrival under command of
Colonel W. H. Edel blute.
GARBER AND BURNS COMING.
Captain Max B. Garber left San
Francisco for B' ; ;e last night. He is
en route to tl-.a station to assist
Major Martin. The following telegram
was received at the adjutant general's
office from Captain Garber prior to his
departure for this city:
"Burns and I have conferred with
department headquarters: they arc
agreed that the entire regiment can be
housed in the barracks, stables, quar
ters and store houses. They have been
pleasant and promise everything. The
regiment will arrive home about Fri
day."
Major Burns is accompanying Cap
tain Garber. They left several weeks
ago for Nogales to check the regiment
property and are returning ahead of
the regiment so that they will he able
to give assista
io Major Martin.
MEANS REORGANIZATION.

enlisted men living in one part of the
State but belonging to a unit of the
regiment as a company hailing from
some other part of the state, are trans
ferred to companies to which they are
the nearest so far as residence is con
cerned.
The schedule accounts for the 1066

Our Liberal Divorce Laws Show How
She Is Indulged, Says Writer.
Tt is safe to assert that the woman
who pauses to think has today little
plain of being penalized
account of her sex, and least of all in
these United States, where she is in
dulged as no other women in the world
have ever been.
Who are the chief beneficiaries of;
• liberal divorce laws? Seventy-five
per rent of the libellants are women
:uid, as everyone familiar with the sub
's. we far outdistance every
nation on the globe in the number of
divorces granted annually, with the
of the Japanese. I a
not among those who regard liberal
an evil; the point
' v 'bioh 1 seek to bring out is that fre
Quetit divorce and the emancipation of
woman have gone hand in hand.
It was her continuous knocking that
caused the doors of legislation to open
wide, and It was her refusal to pul up
with Intolerable conditions that has
made Iter such a frequent petitioner at
the bar of social Justice. II is chiefly
because it relieves women from the un
happiness caused by some form of
masculine abuse that the remedy of di
vorce has such a linn hold on tl
