BIG JIM M
OFLEGISUtTORE KBIT WEEK Important Appropriation Bills Still Unintroduced and Many Measures Are Pending. MONDAY FORTY-FIRST DAY Total of 347 Bills Introduced— Less Than 60 Passed and Sent to Governor—Investi gations Still Uncompleted. With the forty-first day now history there Is accumulating before the fif teenth Idaho legislature a large mass of business that threatens a Jam before the sixtieth per diem arrives. ' Most of the big appropriation bills are as yet unlntroduced, while other pending measures of Importance have not reached the final passage stage. The ■ixth week of the session closed Sat urday with a total of 347 bills re corded as Introduced, 233 of which j were filed In the house and 114 In the aenate and of which total less than to j have been passed and sent to the gov , ernor. Up to the present time there ■ has not been a veto. The record of the legislature, how ever, Is not unworthy, nor have the aolons been Inactive. They have pass ed one of the most Important bills that has ever been presented to an Ida ho legislature — the administration State department consolidation meas ure. It will Inaugurate following ad journment a complete change In the manner In which affairs of state are to be handled. No less than three new counties have been created and other legislation of Importance passed. CONSOLIDATION DEFEATED. The Investigation of the adjutant General's department Is still under way. A special committee has looked Into the Industrial training school at 8t. Anthony and the south Idaho asy lum at Blackfoot. The penitentiary has been visited and Improvements to it recommended. Other state depart ments and Institutions are to be look ed into. However, experience has taught many solons who have partici pated* in lawmaking in this state, that it's a physical impossil ity for them to look into the affairs of all of the state'3 offices and departments during a 60 day session of the legislature. To make a thorough investigation would require almost 60 days for each of them and solons have too many other irons in the fire and other interests at stake to ] devote so much time to it. Probably the feature of the week's session, aside from passage of the ad ministration bill was the defeat of the proposed plan of the state board of •ducatiou to consolidate the Albion state normal school with the Idaho technical Institute at Pocatello. Fear that the consolidation might involve other Institutions is given as the rea son for defeat of the plan. The administration bill has been passed by the legislature and is now before the governor. It will be signed Monday. This means that Idaho dur the next two years Is going to have a changed government whTch the cham pions of the new law declare means greater economy and efficiency, which Governor Davis promise! the people during the campaign. Shortly follow ing the adjournment of the legislature the governor appointed nine depart ment heads who will draw a salary of J3600 per annum. They will form the governor's cabinet. Under them will be grouped the present state departments. These appointments will be placed In various parts of the state so that all sections will be properly represented. They will bo directly responsible for their official acts to the governor who has the power to drop them from the cabinet if their services are not satis factory. The salaries of $3600 per an num It Is believed will be attractive enough to get good men on the cabi net. It will be up to them to work out the regrouping system in compliance with the law.

There will be a complete re organization of the land department. THREE NEW COUNTIES. Idaho has now three more counties than It had a month ago—Clark, Jerome and Uaribou»-all created by the legislature and approved by Gov ernor Davis. But one of them has strings attached to it and that one Is Caribou»which Is required to hold nn election this spring to determine whether or not three and one-half townships shall remain in the old county of Bannock or come into the new. Clark was the first county to be formed and became the forty-second In the state. It comprises territory In western Fremont county with Du bois as the county seat. Jerome is the forty-third. It is formed from parts of Lincoln, Gooding and Minidoka counties with Jerome as the county seat. Caribou Is the forty-fourth tak ing In the* Soda Springs portion of Bnnnopk county with Soda Springs as the county seat. Clark county Is largely comprised of a big dry farm territory which in the past five years has experienced wonderful develop ment. Once this territory Is given water for Irrigation purposes it will be a big farm producing country. Jerome is carved out of, the heart of a rich Irrigation section rapidly being brought under cultivation. Jerome is a. modern little city and centrally lo cated for the county seat. Caribou's territory is largely composed of vast areas of grazing land rapidly becom ing valuable as agricultural. It is a somewhat significant fact that all of the new counties created are located In southern Idaho. The north so far has not claimed a single one. PROPOSES CONVICT LABOR. It is being proposed to the legisla ture that steps be taken to make use of convict labor at the state peniten tiary and replace that institution with an entirely new layout. It Is proposed that the stone building ma terial at hand be utilized and that In stead of the prisoners being allowed to continue to loaf around that a new site for the penitentiary be selected close to the present one, and the foundation for a new wall laid out. This wall can be completed before the balance of the buildings within. The argument advanced in favor of a new' penal In stitution is that the present one Is antiquated and unsuited to meet the needs of the state; that the number of prisoners is increasing rapidly yet there is no suitable employment pro vided for the majority of them, only a limited number of trusties being per mitted to work on the outside. The state affairs committee of the two! houses of the legislature recently filed a report in which it is shown that the present prison buildings are in need of repairs which must be made if the inmates are to have the proper sanitary conditions. As the institu tion is now situated there is no pos sible way by which the youthful prisoners can be segregated from the more hardened criminals, while (he women inmates at the prison are crowded into one room. There are but three of them. It Is claimed that the state would be out very little if plans were made to rebuild the in stitution covering a period of years and using prisoners to do the work. WANT FORESTRY BUREAU. Idaho has thirty millions of dollars or over invested in forest lands and to protect these holdings the present legislature has been asked to create a state forestry bureal. A non-salar ied commission of three members, ap pointed by the governor, is provided for in the bill. A state forester is also WILLIA MART IN BROADWAY BILL HART IN NEW ' YORK WW.WIIP Qg Z9fKSSS9SSfflSBtM New York or New Mexico, you are always dead sure of one thing in every Hart pictura ACTION! , This time the husky Westerner tears right into Broadway's roughest WATCH HIM! TODAY MON TUES. MAJESTIC FEAR SOUTH BOISE Joseph A. Burke Wanders Away From Reclamation Camp Near Bliss Jan. 26 and Is Still Missing. Did Joseph A. Burke of South Boise fall from the siphon across the Snake river near Bliss and drown In the swift waters of that stream, or Is he wan dering: aimlessly about the country in a dementia or sick at some home? These are the questions being pon dered by his wife and friends, who have been searching for him since he disappeared from reclamation camp four, near Bliss, on January 26. G. F. Bell, who lives on Burke's ranch near Kuna, and who spent some time in hunting the missing man, tells the following story of his mysterious disappearance: "Mr. Burke had been in the employ of the reclamation »service at Camp four, near Bliss, more or less during the winter. Some three weeks before he. disappeared ho resumed work there, and was stricken with influenza. Leav ing the camp hospital, he started to breakfast on the morning of January 26, and that was the last seen of him at the camp. He was reported missing the next day, after the camp men had tried to locate him. "Investigations conducted by me gave the information that he was seen by two Spaniards standing on the siphon across the. Snake river at Bliss, about in the middle. That was on the morning he disappeared, and while I have followed every possible trail away from there and made numerous in quiries, have been unable to learn any thing further. "Mr. Burke was a man about 50 years of age, weighed about 180 pounds and stood 5 feet 10 inches high. He was dark comploxioned. wore a mous tache and had gold teeth in front. The thumb and fore finger on his left hand are missing, and he had a French ac cent." Mrs. Burke and their one child live in South Boise on rural route 5, and while hopes of finding Mr. Burke alive have b^en practically abandoned, it is hoped his body may bo located. to be appointed, who works under the commission, and will receive $:*000 per annum. The bill takes the timber out of the hands of the state land board in the belief that it has so much work with land matters it will contin neglect the timber, which is declared to be the second industry in Idaho In point actual production and the ndation of the state's educational system. The sponsors of the measure declare there is scant Information as to the state's timber holdings, with the result that when sales are made the purchaser lias a distinct advan tage as to the timber on any par ticular subdivision. Inventory and classification arc among the duties of the state forester. The prospects for the passage 'of a measure calling for the completion of the state Capitol building at a cost of $900,000 never looked better. This price includes the two wings, costing $450,000 each. The bill is now pend ing before the legislature. The Boise Trades and Labor council has passed resolutions indorsing the bill and other labor organizations over the state ar(f taking similar action. PAYETTE.
