VOLUME 2. MERIDIAN, ADA COUNTY, IDAHO, FRIDAY, JANUARY 6, 1911. NUMBER 34. A Loss to Meridian. Personally the appointment by .the N*mpa-Meridian directors of : sG. A. Remington as secretary jyill be approved but it is regretted that the treasurer's office will be moved irom Meridian to Nampa. The appointment of Mr. Remington as secretary to take the , place of the Nampa man is not compensation for the reason that headquarters will still remain at Nampa, and the secretary will be there several days each week. Under the old arrangement the secretary was supposed to spend half of his time in Meridian, but be was found to be at the other end of the line most of the time,, for one reason or another. Now the taxes can more, con • veniently be paid in Meridian.and there is more aoreage under 'the Meridian district than around Nampa, but now it will be neces sary to go there to settle and the ohange will be an inconvenience-to hundreds of farmers. Trading the -secretaryship to Meridian for the <trea8uryship has been proposed several times before by the Nampa people and the Meridian members Lave as often refused, but Mr. Dewey has at last secured the plum for a Nampa bank, and Me ridians to use a slang term, "gets it in the «eck." The report of the proceedings is as follows: At the regular meeting of the Board of Directors of Nampa & Meridian Irrigation district, held at Nampa on Tuesday, officers for the ensiling year were elected as follows: President, E. H. Dewey, of Nampa; secretary, Guy Rem ington, of Meridian; treasurer, J. A. Givens, of Nampa; managing direotor, Danial M. Barker, of Me ridian; superintendent, Chris Har ton, of Boise; attorney, H. E. McElroy, of Boise, elect, H. B. Carpenter, of Merid ian was present and qualified as .successor to A. R. Stalker. Director After transacting the usual routine business, the following resolution was adopted: Whereas, the extensive plans of the U. S. Reclamation Servioe for Boise Valley were made possible by the organization of this dis trict anh the purchase of the Ri denbaugh canal system, and Mr. A. R. Stalker, the retiring member if oar board, was most active and "»flueutial in accomplishing said .result and has faithfully served the public as a director of the dis trict from its organization; It therefore gives us pleasure to 'express our appreciation of the E ublic spirited servioe rendered y Mr. Stalker and the secretary is directed to spread this resolu tion on the minutes of the board. unanimously 2 Governor Elect James H. Haw ley and the other state officers as «umed tbeir duties last Monday. The legislature also convened, and with a democratic governor and a repnblican legislature times prom ise to be lively in' Boise during the session. The first break oc curred Wednesday when the new governor sent in a list of appoint ments to the senate to be con firmed. These were for various state offices, including Rich, a Mormon, for immigration commis sioner. The senators on the re publican side moved that the mer its of the different appointees be looked into before confirmation, but the democrats asked for im mediate action, The former, hav ing a majority, carried their point. In the honse of representatives, Charles A. Storey, of Ada county, was honored with the position of speaker, tin 'thé house a bill introduced this week appropiating $60,000 for the expense of the ses sion, so the members have good prospect of getting their pay, at a « U All the new county officers, in cluding the precinct officers, as sume their positions next Monday.

Because your money is safer in a bank than elsewhere. Because a bank accouut helps and en courages you 10 save. Because paying bills by cheek is the simplest"and most convenient, and tie check becomes a receipt. Because a check book is safer to carry around than a wallet with money in it; if the check book is lost you have lost nothing; with the purse its different. Because a bank account gives you a standing in the community. Because you are building up a val uable asset when you establish your credit at a good bank. GET BUSY ! GET BUSY ! GET BUSY !
