This does not mean that our people are ig norant, but simply that the details ot this excellent measure bave not been brought properly to their attention. The law provides that the governor shall appoint three person^ who, with the state superintendent of public in struction and tbe president of the state university, shall constitué a library commission. It als-j defines the duties the commission. It appropriates $6,000 for tbe purchase of books and ex penses, making $3,000 for current year and a similar sum for 1 1902. The governor appointed Mrs Samuel Hays and Mrs. Edward Dockery of Boise, and Mrs. Eliza Kercheval of Rathdrum, as members of the board, ky virtue of their official p'tsitions, Miss Permeal French, state school superintendent, and A. McLean, president of }he state uni versity, became members, ex-officio, of tbe commission. At the organization of the board Miss French was Chosen chair man and Mrs. Dockery secretary. Both reside at Boise. Tbe commission is empowered to re ceive bequests. "Twenty gifts of fifty dollars each will mean twenty new sta tions. Any individual or plub that do nates $50, or the value of otae case, may secure tbe benefits of the gift to a particu lar community by attaching a condition to tbe effect that a library station be es tablished in that locality." These traveling libraries are cases of books containing about 5b volumes of standard books, divided as follows: One third juvenile books, one third fiction and one third miscellaneous. A case of books is sent by tbe commission to given town, where tbe books are circu lated for four months; tbe case is then forwarded to some other place and a case of entirely different books is substituted, unity thus giving to the community securing a place on the circuit excellent reading matter absolutely free 6f coat. Tbe object of the law ia to enable every school district in the state to ultimately own free library. The manner of obtainiug a free library is simple and quite inexpensive. "A library organization should be organised composed of not leSs than six persons who are taxpayers, interested in library work, the purpose of this organization being to provide, for the ctfntrol and safe keeping of the bopks. A are elected the. secretary requisition to the secret library commission for blank to have that com station tq receive cases of Itbe free travel ibg library. On the association's receipt of the blank the name of the librarian selected by the association to have charge of the books, is to be inserted in the space and the application signed by six responsible persons of the association and the some returned at Boise. As soon tl the community will- be station." Pprsons interested in should address the ondjecnirc copies of the low, os its ptp viaionsare Uxfoog.to the officers ay then make of the free I s application unity made the secretary as possible library clem of work Boise reprinted in the more population than any other county of the state anti it should lead in the number of free libraries when the cost is so little for the benefits derived. Hours that are spent iu idleness will find occu pation in good literature. It will make the long winter eveuings upon the farm pleasant and profitable, and spread intelligence anil raise the moral status of every community where a libraiy is located. Now is the the time. NEW DEMOCRATIC CHAIRMAN Peter M. Davis is now the Big Man of the Democratic Party. From a Boise paper it is learned that the genial chairmau of the democratic central committee, K. I. Perky, has re signed on account of his duties as district judge. The vacancy fell to Mr. Davis, of Nez Perce county. When it comes to knowledge of political work and the de tail of organization there are few men in Idaho who will measure up to the high standard of l'ete Davis. He will serve until a successor is named, and it is the common belief that he will be retained. Board of Arbitration. The state board of arbitration, which met for organization purposes at Hailey few days ago, organized by the election of E. H. Dewey of Nampa, chairman, and Claude Duval of Nampa, secretary and stenographer. The other member of the hoard besides Mr. Dewey is George A. Chilliugsworth of Hailey. These two will sit as an arbitration board when called on, the third member being tbe judge of the district in which the trouble arises. Whenever the members of the board are notified of any trouble between em ployer and employees, one or both of them will go to the scene of the trouble and endeavor to get the two sides to gether. If this is found to be impossible an endeavor will be made to get tlie two parties to agree to arbitrate. If they agree to this, arbitration agreements will be signed and the findings of the com mission will be binding unless revolu tionary action shall be taken by either side of the controversy.. In the event that it is impossible to get the two sides to the controversy to arbi trate, it will be tbe duty of the commis sioners to investigate tbe cause of tbe disagreement, and to make a report to the governor upon the trouble, namiug, if possible, the party in error. This is done with the idea of getting the causes of the trouble before the public in an of ficial way. At the meeting in Hailey rules for tbe procedure of the board in all possible contingencies were adopted and blank forma for tbe use of the commission were prepared. Ditd at Spokane. S. P. Soby, a Genesee, Idaho, farmer, died here June 17, at 6 o'clock. He lyas 65 years old. Tbe funeral will take place from Smith 8 t Co.'s undertaking parlors at 11 o'clock this morning and interment will be at Greenwood cemetery. Rev. D. O. Westhem will conduct the services. Review.

Donovan had closed gambling tighter than it had ever been since the state was settled. Tacoma, June 18. — Agents of the treasury department are on the Sound to prevent tbe introduction of British Co lumbia non union machinists to take the places of striking union men. William Blackman, the state labor commissioner, is said to be co-operating with the federal authorities. Though none of the men will talk, there is reason to believe the federal authorities have re ceived an intimation that the shopowners would attempt to meet the strike through the introduction of contract labor. The allied "third party" has been or ganize 1 at Kansas City. Tbe leaders of the movement declare they will be ab^e to put a national ticket in the field in 1904. Those at the head of tbe move ment represent all shades of political faith. A committee was sent to Lincoln to confer with W. J. Bryan A report waa sent out that this gentlemen would be one of the new party. But later Bryab gave out to the press a statement stating that there was no truth in tbe report. Tbe platform announced is in sub stance as follows: Public ownership of all public utilities, as railroads, telegraphs, etc v While awaiting legislation to secure public ownership, rigid public control of (reightand passenger rates and severe penalties for rebates and other discrimi nation by railroads.

NEW COUNTY COMMISSIONER. E. L. Parker Selected to Fill An Uncxpircd Term. The news of the appointment of E. L. Parker to fill the vacancy iu the board of commissioners caused by the resignation of Perry Miller, was a source of pleasure to the many friends of Mr. Parker. For severahyears Mr. Parker has been en gaged in business at Nezperce, and will bring to the office the good business judgment which has characterized his work at his home. Idaho School Work. Miss French, state superintendent of schools, says Idaho will graduate 200 students from her eighth grade this year. In September a high school course will be ready for distribution. This course will be correlated with tlie university course, thus making the system con tinuous from graded schools to tbe uni versity. Porter it Agent. In addition to the management of a large fruit farm L- A. Porter has taken charge of the N. P. express office at Porter station. It was largely through his efforts that the office was established. It will be of great value to the fruit growers in that viciuity, saving several hours travel to Lewiston and giving them a chance to put fresher fruit ou the market and also time to properly pack every pound of fruit tent out. Davit Reprieved. For several years tbe law has been makfng a feeble effort to put a rope around tbe neck of "Diamondfield Jack" Davis. Each time that the death sen tence was pronounced some new trick of tbe ledgerdemain artists came to Jack's rescue. This time Governor Hunt baa pulled the string, and given Jack a lease oh life until July 3. This givea tbe board of pardons a chance to say some thing and it is probable Jack will set np tbe wine at the end of their session. The crime for which Davis was tried was committed iu 1896 in Cassia connty, when John C. Wilson wat murdered. The case has gone through the courts of Idaho and on habeas corpus proceedings had s round in the U. S. supreme court. There he was knocked out. Then an other effort was made to get a new trial, and another appeal to our cupreme court taken. But the court denied tbe appli cation, on the grounds that the statutory time for such action had elapsed. In all, the taxpayer* are out about $75,000. New Money Order. The circular notifying postmasters of the new uniform money order system be tween this nation and Canada ia being sent out Irem Washington. The order is to take effect July 1. Postmaster Chap man will no doubt be ready to tranaact business under the new order by that date. By tbe new scheme money orders may be issued st any money order office in the United States or any mouey order office in Canada, or between like offices in Canada upon the United States offices. The domestic money order forms will be used in issuing ordere for payment in Canada. The new arrangement between the two governments is substantially that settlements shell be made npoe paid orders rather then upon leaned orders, sa et present, hence exchange offices will be no longer necessary, end will be discontinued on both sides Fine rein lost evening!
