"Entered April28,1903, at Rathdrum, Ida
ho, a* second-class matter, under Act of
Congress of March 9,1879.
Thf. total tax levy for Rathdrum
for all purposes—state, county,
school and municipal—is 51 mills.
This means that $5.10 taxes must
be paid on each $ioo of taxable
valuation, or $51 on each $1000.
Two or three other places in the
County have higher levies. It must
be remembered that the greater
part of this is local and the in
crease dver last year amounting to
fen mills is entirely local. The
combined county and state levy is
the same as last year. The state
l'fcvy, itself, is lower, but the
county levy is correspondingly
higher to meet the needs of the
schools. The state levy could have
been one-third less if the highway
tax had been eliminated Governor
Davis, in his speeches defending
the cabinet system of state govern
ment as efficient and economical,
is reminding the voters that the
state levy is lower this year. He is
also pointing out that Illinois,
which has the cabinet form ol
government, was the only state to
show a reduced levy last year. So
much for the cabinet system, bui
it is well in the interest of fairness
that the voter should know that
the tax increase this year cannot be
charged to the state board.
The big political fight in Idaho |
is between Gooding and Nugent j
for the U. S. senate, and the main
issues are the league of nations and
the tariff. Gooding, the republi
can candidate, opposes the league
and favors a protective tariff.
Only seventeen days remain be
fore election. There are but fifteen
days left in which to register.
However, those who registered for
the August primaries need not
register again for the November
election.
The ballot is the one instrument
by which every citizen can have a
voice in his or her government,
is a powerful instrument and should
be used intelligently and to good
purpose..

The Salvation Army is Doing This Work
V
The Rescue Home in Spokane is crowded
and yet others must be cared for.
Yes, it's true, Girls should not go wrong.
But they cannot be left to continue such a
life, neither can the babies be left to starve.
Kootenai County is asked to raise $3500 to
aid the Salvation Army in this noble rescue
work.
