The cuts made do not In any way affect state institutions, the entire ap propriations asked for improvements and maintenance at all the institutions being approved by the committee. | The chief trimming done was on house bill No. 278. Starting with the Industrial accident board, that appro priation was trimmed from $49,000 to $39,000, the $10,000 cut representing the appropriation for the safety depart ment. Guts made In the public utilities commission were $7200 salary for an engineer; stenographers reduced from three to one. cutting that salary from $7200 to $2400, and the third $45,000 for securing physical examinations nad valuations of public utilities. The total for the department was cut from $118,450 to $61,450. The appropriation of $40,000 for the adjutant general was entirely elimi nated, Senator Adams explaining there was still $25,000 in the present fund, which was sufficient for the depart ment and maintaining a slate militia of $2000 for a period of two years. RAISE ONE APPROPRIATION. In the state veterartan department. $25,000 was addded for paying losses caused to farmers whose cattle were killed because of being tubercular and $4800 for salary of a deputy veterinary surgeon .thus raising tile amount in that department from $66,310 to $96,110. FUNDS FOR FAIR CUT. Five thousand dollars each was cut from tile appropriations for the Gem State fair at Boise and the Lewiston Livestock show. The appropriations for each of the fairs was $45,000.

The $100,000 asked for building two wings to the Idaho sanitarium at Nampa was sliced in two, $50,000 being voted for building one wing. The state board of education was cut $S120. The appropriation asked was $58,120, which was cut to $50,000. House concurrent resolution No. 4, raising the salary of B. W.

TO BE HIGHEST IN STATE'S' HISTORY Chairman of Senate Finance Shows Why Legislature Must Meet Growing Demands for More Money. LEVIES WERE TOO LOW Board of Equalization Held to Be at Fault^-Levied Within But One-Third of Amount Authorized by Lawmakers. That the appropriations of the pres ent legislature will be the highest ever made In Idaho, due largely to the fail ure of the board of equalization during the past four years to make a high ei ough levy to meet expenses for state departments and state institutions was the statement made before the state senate by Senator Lloyd Adams, chair man of the finance committee. Senator Adams said in part: "The abnormal conditions during the war, the inefficiency and niggardli ness with which we have handicapped our institutions of this state during the past four years; the failure of the board of equalization during the past four years to levy within one-third of the amount authorized by the legisla ture, and the increased demand for | good i-oads and public improvements to provide employment for our soldier boys after they return, has placed this legislature in a position where we must go before the people of this state with the highest appropriation ever made. "We are unfortunate in that the state has bonded within $200,000 of its limit, and we cannot pass a bond is sue at this time. In years past the legislatures have always been able to bond, but this condition this year will make the tax levy possibly twice as high as ever before. EXTRAVAGANCE AND WASTE. "When we take into consideration the extravagance and waste of thç. na tional administration, and the burden which has been placed upon us by the war, and the fact that during those trying periods we attempted to cut by levying below the amount required in normal conditions, we feel justified in going before the people of this state with this budget. "In 1915 the levy authorized was $750,000; the amount levied was $700, 000. In 1916 the levy authorized was $750,000, and the amount levied $565, 000 . In 1917 the authorization was $1, 000,000 with $650,000 levied, and in 1918 only $987,686.87 was levied with an authorization of $1,000.000. Thus during those four years the adminis tration failed to levy $606,314, which was authorized by the legislature, and appropriation made therefor, "We turned over from the Haines* administration assets amounting to $926,51S.03, with warrants payable amounting to approximately $92,000 and deficiency warrants of $87,000, whlch'left a surplus of approximately $747,000. Today, when we take back the reins of government, we are con fronted with a condition wherein the insurance for the Lewiston State nor mal and the Soldiers' Home has been turned into the general fund, and ex pended by the past administration. In addition to that we face deficiencies amounting to $145,848. The tax levy, which was partly paid in January and which will be finished in July, amounts to $978,686. The total bills of the last administration amount to $993.207. Thus, after all of the taxes are collected during the year 1919, we will fail within $14,520 of having enough money to pay our out-standing indebtedness. Advises caution. "Senator Robertson, a member of the finance committee spoke in part as follows: "Consider well before pass ing any appropriations that you feel are not justified at this time. We have to go before the people of this state two years hence and justify ourselves for these appropriations. We are now trying to make up for what has been done during the past two years, and we have been selling goods below cost. We are going before the people with the biggest tax bill that the state has ever known, and the fed eral government is taxing as it has never taxed before. The tax payers are now paying interest on liberty bonds and are being asked to buy more bonds. .If we have good crops and the cost of production goes no higher, well and good, but If there is a crop failure It will be hard to ex plain this tax bill to the people. For actual necessities we aie Justified and It is our duty to pass those bills. The necessities of our state have been neglected In the past administration, and now we must make up for past deficiencies In addition to our regu lar appropriations.''

Argument has closed in the case of the Twin Falls-Oakley Land & Water company versus John H. Martins and William G. Moyes, and the case is now In the hands of Jifdge Frank S. Diet rich for decision. The mooted point in the case was whether the plaintiff company could bring suit to foreclose on settlers be fore patent was issued to Carey act lands by the government. Plaintiff company filed foreclosure suits in 1915 against some 40 settlers on Carey act lands. These were filed believed it had on the property. 3 0, 900 acres of Carey act land were not amenable to foreclosure suits as long as title rested in the government and patent had not been issued to the com pany. Later, the government issued patents to the lands in question, and the company filed a supplemental bill to the original to establish the fact that the patent had been issued, so that it might be given cause of action. In the case of A. E. Caldwell, et al, versus the Twin Falls-Salmon River Land & Water company, petition of intervention was denied by Judge Dietrich. T. K. Hackman of Salmon filed motion to dismiss petitions in intervention.
