completes its civic center plans, for
the bond issue bill co»talns a provision
by which the bonds are virtually isold.
This provision was inserted in the
measure because of the high price of
fered for the bonds which, it is said,
no other bonding bouse would meet,
and the fact' the entire issue could be
disposed of at once.
MEANS READY CASH.
The state treasurer is authorized
and directed by the terms of the bill
to "sell and deliver said bonds draw
ing 4% per cent interest per annum at
par and accrued interest to date of de
livery to Ferris & Hardgrove, a part
nership of Spokane, Wash."
The bonds mature serially from 10
to 20 years. This is the first time so
largo a bond issue had been handled
by a western bonding house, it is said,
but all arrangements have been made
to get a quick return in cash on them
so that building operations will not be
delayed.

Quietly Reaches City and t
Gives Friends. Who Would
IE
Celebrate, the Slip.
Hon. John F. Nugent, Junior United
States senator from Idaho, who began
his term of office early last year, and
has since been continually on the Job
at Washington, D. C\, arrived in Boise
early this morning. Tired out from
his active service in the sixty-third
sssion, and having a strenuous trip,
Senator Nugent went at once to the
home of a friend, and even his closest
political associates were unable to see
him today, as he is taking a needed
ro*t. •
Through some misunderstanding,
Senator Nugent was left In !* sleeper
at Green River Tuesday night, and his
absence from the train was not dis
covered until some time later. A spe
cial train was sent back after him,
while the regular train at Pocatello
was held for six hours to await the
arrival of the special.
Friends of Senator Nugent had
planned a reception for him upon his
arrival, and had wired him to ascer
tain his wishes. They received a reply
that he wished to have his home-com
ing as quiet as possible, and his wishes
were well carried out, as owing to
the lateness of the train, his friends
were not at the depot to meet him.
Plans for a reception later are being
discussed, nnd It Is predicted that he
may tour Idaho speaking In the In
terest of the league of nations, of
which he is an earnest advocate.
Many of the passengers on the train
due here at 2 p. m. today but wBlch
did not arrive until late this morning
declare there was no reason why they
should be held so long at Pocatello, for
It was a great inconvenience, to them.
They, are severe in their criticism of
the railroad management.
Senator Nugent, however, knew
nothing about this arrangement, or !
that the regular train was being held.

Each New Day Brings
a Better Maxwell
'OST anyone would think that after building
50,000 motor cars on one chassis plan that
close on to perfection would be reached 4
That is true in a large measure; but it happens to
be only the point at which the Maxwell executives
began.
They decided to keep on building Maxwells bfetter
and better as each new day went by.
The locomotive engineer drives his engine better
every day. The banker who loans money does so
with more and more judgment The man at the
forge—likewise.
This is the principle on which the Maxwell is built.
It is not new in the business world But it is soun0.
And today, with 300,000 Maxwells built on this
plan, anyone will readily understand—
Why a Maxwell runs on and on and never quits with age;
Why a Maxwell seldom turns in at a repair shop;
Why a Maxwell is so eagerly sought for in the second
hand market.
One of the last of more than 1000 im
provements made since the first Maxwell
was built is the appearance.
Let your eyes glance over this present
day Maxwell and you'll think the price
$200 more than we ask for it
