Stand Taken by Senators
Against Covenant.
Resent His Attempt to Force
Personal Views and Opinions
Upon the People—Kill Sixth
Judicial District Bill.
President Woodrow Wilson Is assail
ed and the league of nations lie is
championing is condemned, held to be
"Impracticable, visionary and subver
sive of international principles," In a
memorial Introduced in the house of
representatives urging the United
States Benate to oppose It. The me
morial was Introduced by three promi
nent Republicans in the lower assem
bly, or Givens, Featherstone and Hugo,
which is taken to indicate that it is a
majority measure and will be passed
before the present legislature adjourns.
It is as follows:
"Whereas, Section 2, Article 2, of the
constitution of the United States gives
the president power to make treaties
by and with the advice and consent of
the senate, and >
"Whereas, There Is now In progress
the greatest peace negotiating conclave
In the history of the world, the United
States being one of the members of
said convention, and
"Whereas, The president of the
United States has, contrary to the
wishes and desires of the majority of
the people of the United States
America, and without the advice or
consent of the senate of the United
States, attempted to force through said
convention and to foist upon the Amer
ican people as one of the essential ele
ments of the treaties of peace to be
promulgated by said convention, a pro
position favoring and organizing a so
called league of nations, and
"Whereas, The substance of the pro
posed draft of the so-called league of
nations Is obscure, vague, ambiguous,
and tending to bring about greater
confusion and distrust and hostility
among the various nations of the world,
"Whereas. The theory of said league
of nations is impracticable, visionary,
and subversive of the international
principles heretofore controlling In the

Reliability reigns supreme with that irresistible combination of
style and economy that makes the ABC Co. anniversary event, an
important time for the selecting of a Suit, Coat, Dress or a new Hat.
Tomorrow and Saturday we offer a special discount of 10 per
cent on Suits, Coats, Dresses and Hats.
The usual custom of stores, during an Anniversary
event, is to advertise special lots of goods at reduced
prices. Usually these lots are bought at reduced
prices, from the jobbers or manufacturers, and are
actual lines that might be classed as undesirable for
some reason, not generally known by the trade.
This store never buys Jobs or undesirable sam
ples. We select with great care every garment
or hat from manufacturers' lines, and the garments
are jnado to our order and if not right in every little
detail we do not accept them. Therefore we have
no lots of undesirable garments or hats to make spe
cial prices on for our Anniversary Sale.
A whole-hearted Merchandising Event with Splen
did values in Every Line Characterizes the Anniver
sary of This Store.
A bona-fide discount on the regular price of
Suits, Goats, Dresses and Hats is given to the
trade, and it does not require exaggerated state
ments in our advertisements or an inflated value
placed on the garments to create a desire for the
trade to buy. One can see (without a magnifying
glass) the real saving they make, at the same time
have the choice of.the best models—the most desir
able and best suited for their requirements.
On* proof of our oorroct styles is Illustrated from time to time by the cuts—pic
tures—In this and other of our advertisements in this paper of a late Issue.
We show no imaginary pictures; every cut in our advertisements is a repro
duction of a real photograph of the Suit, Coat or Dress from our line.

"Whereas, Borne 37 senators have
Pledged themselves to oppose the rati

"Now, therefore, be it resolved: That
wo. tho house of representatives of the

do earnestly request and recommend
that the senate of the United States

of the league of nations becoming a
part of or being In any way Included
in the peace treaties to be made or

"Be it further resolved: That they
resent the defiant and dictatorial atti

which he has attempted to force his
personal. views and opinions upon the
people of the United States, Irrespec

Ing the appointment by the governor
of an additional judge for the Sixth
judicial district. The state affairs
committee recommended it. The re
pert was adopted. This Is the meas
ure in connection with which the names
of two prominent men were associated
so far as the appointment is con
cerned, George W. Edgington, now In
the service of his country with the
commission of major and Senator E.
W. Whitcomb, of Lemhi county, presi
dent pro tern of the senate.
At the same time committee reports
were received recommending lndeflnite
postponement of senate bill No. 131, by
the committee on education providing

school codes of the state and house
bill No. 192 by O'Dwyer, providing for
levy of assessments by drainage dis
trict commissioners for all purposes,
both of which the house declined to
accept, saving the bill temporarily at
lea st.
The house also had a tiff over the
Walker bill seeking to abolish teach
ers' institutes in this state. The meas
ure was laid on the table some time
ago. It was taken from the table and
placed on third reading after several
viva voce votes showing the house to
be very evenly divided although those
favoring the measure, known as senate
bill No. 84. seemed to predominate.
At least they were able to overcome
the opposition and take it from the
table. Hall declared the bill to strike
at the only connecting link between
the rural schools and the larger edu
cational institutions.
The following measures were passed:
House bill No. 279, by Featherstone

Commission Bill Championed by
Woman in House of Repre
sentatives—Does Not Want
Son a Mollycoddle.
Boxing was legalized in Idaho today
so far as the legislature Is concerned
for the house passed the senate bill by
Faraday and others placing boxing and
other athletic events of a professional
nature in the hands of a state com
mission. Before u. promoter can go
ahead with his matches he must se
cure a permit from this commission.
Twenty-round bouts with four-ounce
gloves are allowed.
The bill was championed by a
woman. Representative Carrie Har
per White of Twin Falls, speaking of
its merits said she did not bring up
hor sons to be "mollycoddles" nor did
she want other mothers or parents to
do so.
"As a mother," said Representative
White, T would like to indorse this
bill. Mothers and fathers should take
a more Intelligent Interest In the
sports of their boys and girls. The
boys see too much of their mother's
society and not enough of their
father's. Good, clean athletic sports
are what we want and they should be
properly supervised. The boys com
ing back from the war realize the
benefits derived from athletics. They
will demand clean sports. Such a bill
as this in going to prevent a race of
mollycoddles. I do not want my sons
to be mollycoddles and I am sure
other mothers do not."
Representative White was loudly
applauded. Mrs. Drake voted with her
for the bill. A total of 51 members
voted for and 10 against. The 10 are:
Representatives Bennett, Canfield,
Conover. Harrison of Clearwater, La
Valle, Peckham, Shearer, S Linger,
Thompson and Yorgesen.
