B few facts for Lawmakers.
Commuukaied. f f ^ f Tlie most important ques ion now before the people of Idaho is How shall we continue to miiiinain our higher institutions of learning? The law makers soon to meet will bo con fronted with a deplorable siiuuiion wuli a problem,the solution of wbicK will n quire ability and statesmanship Is it not better to call a hall and con sider the faillie inten st of our entire stale lather iliuu to go frorti bad to worse in the interest of one or iwo localities. As a risult of past legislation we are iu the mrque situation of having a state university, a state normal and, by implication only, a state agricult ural college remotely situated in the Pan Handle of the state. The Hatch and Morrell fund has by some twist of tiie wrist been used by the management of the university for a number of It be all right to teach the principles of irrigation under an umbrella in theory, but not in practice. Practice is essential to succès«. Moscow is but eight miles from Pullman where is located the agricultural college of the state of Washington, which was established prior to the university at Moscow. Docs any sane man con tend that Uncle Sam will support two agricultural schools in a section, where there are not students enough for one, especially as the distance southeast through Idaho is over seven hundred miles from Moscow. As our future development iu agricultural resources will di pend entirely on reclaiming the millions of acres of and land in the great Snake Hiver valley, the agricultural college or Paining school should be in the arid belt. For here only can students acquire a practical knowledge of irrigation Iu view of the fact that a new impluse will be given to n claiming arid land, by reason of national aid, now is the lime to locate the agricult ural college of the stale of Idaho, as the law requires. The place should be at jm'.. - '* Boise.

The university and n ith normal schools, being children of premature birth, will never have sufficient vitality to be of any gteat value to tlie slate at large. The university, in Us present location, will not be generally patronized, while Whitman nffotdsso many superior advantages. The attempt to establish and main tain two mutual schools in Idaho was sheer folly. These are not now nor will liiere he in Idaho for several years,a sufficient number of students seeking a special training for teach ing to supply otic school. The greatest blunder of all along educational lines was the establish ment of a slate academy at Pocatello, When we insider that only about one iu twenty is permitted io receive anv luit a c immun school education. And further that special taxis are necos-uiry in nearly every school dis trict to build school houses and sup port schools, we are at it !o-s to find any excuse for iIt-* state step,dug in to add.t i the heavy hardens ■ f ev. ry school district of Idaho, an addition al amount to support uu academy so called at Pociielloor any other place Boise City has one, Weiser has two. There are several others in different All, 1 am hap condition But Pocatello having a political pull of some kind must be specially favored. I suggest a feeler to test pubbe sentimen,ttlml the present legislative body proceed lo locate the agricult ural college of the stale of Idaho ns the law requires. Change the normal at Albion into a reform school and either donate tlie academy to the city of Pocatello for a high school lock it up to be u-*ed some time iu the future as a school for deaf and blind.
