Boise police are about to start a crusade against what Is known as the female street walkpr, 'says the Baker City Democrat. It has been a source of annoyance to the department for some time that there was no place suitable to lock up the most degraded of the female set, but with the new Jail finished there will be an excellent place for caring for persons of shady charac ters, and the police propose to use the new Jail to the extent that they declare roaming the streets at all hours of the night by young women will come to a close. There has been much of this In the past and the police find many cases everv night, and there was no place to put them when arregted, and that on this account it has been necessary to allow them to roam the streets at will.
