WORK OF NORMAL BOARD Reorganization Completed—Salaries Raised and New Departments Created—Call for Applications for Next Meeting. The hoard of trustees of the Lewiston State Normal school met Tuesday eve ning in the rooms of the secretary at the Idaho Trust Building and completed the reorganization of the board by electing C. A. Forestnan president and F. VV. Kettenbach secretary. After going over the routine work before the board an ad journment was taken till 2 p. m. Wednes day to allow the uon resident members to visit the institution and inquire into the detail work of the several depart ments. At tlie afterm 011 meeting the immedi ate need of the school was taken up for discussion and tlie president and secre tary made a committee to supply the several departments within the provis ions of the appropriations with the equipment necessary for immediate use. A committee consisting of Dr. Ross Ba ker, E. P. Giboney and L. S. Dille was appointed to adopt rules and regulations for governing the actions of the board and to report the same at the next reg ular meeting. Pending the adoption of such rul .-s a committei to be known as an executive board will have charge o the institution with authority to act in matters of immediate need till the close of the present school year. The board is comprised of the president, the secretary, and of a resident member. G. W. Shaff was appointed to act with the president and secretary on the executive board. Several matters of detail concerning the commencement exercises were taken up and disposetl of. Among them an ap propriation for diplomas and provision for the invitations and programmes. The appropriation provides for an in creased teaching force and the trustees passed a resolution marking out in gen eral a faculty equipment of nine teachers, an addition of two members to the pres ent faculty. The plan is subject to change but in main provides for a princi pal who will teach psychology and methods, and departments as follows: histoiy and civics, mathematics, trainttig, English, Latin and Elocution, music and drawing, Physical and Chemical science and Bii iogv. The salary (or the prin cipal is to be $2400 per year and tor the depaitinents a range of from $1000 to $1500 Notice is given in the resolution that iht board is o, en f a applications for anv or all of tlie ue| a 1 iiuenls and will st iiei eachcrs to till lie faculty at the next 11.ee i.ig. S d .ru-s have beeu raised because the best interests tit the institu tion demand it, and in the making of the selection ut teachers the board will be guided solçly w-ith the idea of making tlie teaching force the most efficient from the material that presents itself by appli cation. Messrs. Dille and Baker, the uou-resi dent niemb.rs of the board spent yester day and oday visiting the departments at the Normal. Miss Scott, state school superintendent, also a member of the board, was not present at the meeting, being detained in Boise on accouut of the duties of her office. The board ad journed Wednesday subject to call of the president, and it is not unlikely that such a call will be issued prior to the regular meeting in June. New Agency Established. A. S. Thurber has just closed the con tract with the Houser & Haines Manu facturing Co., of Stockton, California, to handle the Haines Houser combined harvester (or the territory ol Central Washington and Eastern Idaho. The Haiues-Houser combined harvester is the most tfficient combined harvester in the field today and has received an ample trial in the Walla Walla country where it was introduced several years ago and is now almost universally employed. The machine has a record of cuttiug, threshing, recleaning and sackiug 1008 sacks of wheat in one day of 11 hours. This compared with the record of other machines proves the superior utility of the Haine.,- Hauser harvester. In Cali fornia it has been used with pronounced success and Mr. Thurber is fortunate in securing territory where the (leniaud for economical harvest is immediate and pressing. State Ext,-Dilutions R. H. McMillan of Peck was the only applicant who appeared at the examina tion for state certificate held at the county supeiintendent's office be ginning Thursday.

The examinations for this woik are being held today in Lewiston, Nez perce and Gifford. Pupils who pass this examination are qualified to enter any higli school in the stale. THE IDAHO GAME LAW Residents ol Washington Say It is Unconsti tutional—Idaho's New Game Warden Will Enforce It. Spokane sportsmen are taking great in terest in the new game and fish law of Idaho. The new license law charges a li cense fee of fs for non-residents who fish or hunt for small game in Idaho, and $25 for non-residents who hunt for deer or other large game. Residents may fish and hunt all xiuds of game for $1 each year. The matter of the new law was a ques tion for discussion at the Sunday shoot of the Spokane club, and T. B Ware, the well known sportsman said: "If the law isenforced it will piactically stop Spokane sportsmen running over into Idaho for a little fishing trip. Every attorney with whom I have discussed the matter has pronounced the new law un constitutional. This is the opinion of F. C. Robertson, A. M. Winston and George Forster and F'rank Allen. It is true sev eral other states have similar laws, but they have never been contested in the higher courts. The Americau Field of Chicago is raising a fund to make a test case of all these laws, and if necessary carry it to the supreme court of the United States. I believe, though, that Idaho is the only state that discriminates agaiust non-residents in fishing.'' "1 doubt the constitutionality of ihe new law," said Judge J. R. McBride. "1 have not seen a copy of it, hut if it dis criminates against non-residents I do uot see how it can stand. This principle was passed upon several years ago by the supreme court in the United States in a case carried up from Nevada. The su preme court held the law to be unconsti tutional because it discriminates against non-residents." State Game Warden W. V. Irons is planning a strict enforcement of the law, and thinks it will result iu an effective protection to fish and game. He is quoted as saying that heretofore it has been impossible to properly enforce the game laws, but the license svstem provided for in the new law will furnish money enough to pay all expenses in connection with its enforcement. Male residents of Idaho above the age of 12 years may procure for fi a license entitling them to bunt for all game and fish for one year. Non-residents of the stale w ho desire the privilege of hunting and fishing feath ered game may do so on payment ol $5 for a license. If 11011-teshleiils wish 10 -hunt all kinds of game, laige anil small, as well as fish, it will cost them $25 to do so. Washington sportsmen who have been n the habit of raiding Idaho game re sorts for years, claim that the license feature of the bill is unconstitutional in that it conflicts with section 4, article 1 of the constitution of the United States. The claim will not hold, because the same law has been iu effect in Wyoming, Montana, Colorado, South Dakota and other states fos years and has withstood all legal tests Another conspicuous feature of the new law is that it does away with the prac tice of remunerating deputy game war dens by giving them a portion of the fines collected from those on whom they inform. This has alp-ays proved dis tasteful and many transgressors have es caped because nobody could lie found willing to lay information against them Under the new law deputy game wardens are allowed $3 a day for each day actually employe'd, ami are limited to 90 days' work in each year. A deputy game warden may be appointed on the petition of 10 or more taxpayers in a county, and his commission may be re* voked at any lime for neglect of duty. Deputy wardens are placed under bonds of $500 for faithful performance of their duties and bave the same power to make arrests as the state game warden. The daily catch for a single fisherman with book and line is limited to 20 ponds of trout, bass catfish, grayling or sunfish. Trout and black bass less than four inches long must not be taken, and the use of "snag hooks'' is barred. Pollution of streams by sawdust, chemicals or other substance is prohibited and the use of explosives or seine nets for taking fish is not permitted. The Trig to Crsndt Rond« The O. R. & N. company .will send the steamer Norma on Monday for a trip to the Grande Ronde. The boat will leave Lewiston in the morning and has a good cargo of supplies for the various mining camps of the upper river.

Jce Walker, one of the owners of the lead struck by Mr. Wundram will goto the pioperty and make sonr arrangement for the shipment ol ores to the smelter.
