Idaho Fire, start Kamiah, ing in the Dismore Mercantile compa ny's establishment shortly after mid night, did damage amounting to $45. 0ÜÜ. The losses are: Dismore Mercantile company, build ing and stock, $26,000. J. F. Pomeroy Hardware company, $ 20 , 000 . In addition to this, several business houses across the street were badly scorched, and plate glass windows Äwere cracked by the extreme heat. When the fire was discovered the Dismore building was in flames. An alarm brought out the volunteer fire companies, consisting of a hose com pany and a chemical company. Despite their efforts the flames spread to the hardware store and that building was soon a mass of ruins. »Only a small quantity of hardware Igoods were saved. Nothing was saved fin the Dismore building. By hard work the firemen prevented further spread of the Are, though several other mercantile houses were in close proximity. The number of young trout in the streams of Bannock, Bear Lake and Twin Falls counties has been increas ed approximately 500,000 during the past fortnight as a result of the visit of the state fish car. I SMITH WILL BE CANDIDATE Secretary to Senator Heyburn Willing to. Go to Congress. Pocatello, Idaho, Sept-. 27.—The congressional apportionment law en acted at-the last session giving Idaho an adidtional representative in con gress becomes effective March 4, 1913, making it necessary to elect the new congressman at the regular election in 1912. As the legislature made no provis ion for separate districts both of the representatives will be elected by the entire state. The availibility of several prominent republicans is being dis cussed and among those whose can didacy is receiving most favorable mention is Addison T. Smith, until recently secretary of the republican state central committee, who is in the city today. When asked as to his rumored candidacy, Mr. Smith re plied: "It is rather early to announce my candidacy, as the primary election is nearly a year away. Many of my, friends over the entire state are urg ing me to stand for the nomination, and advise me that by reason of my wide acquaintance as the result of my 20 years service as secretary to Senators Shoup and Heyburn, and it years' connection with the republican state central committee, I would have a most excellent chance of being the choice of the people for the nomina tion and election. "Under the direct primary law it is a free for all contest, and I think it advisable to give the voters an oppor tunity to discuss the claims of those who may aspire to the place before beginning an agressive campaign. "The apparent unanimity with which my friends are rallying to my support is most gratifying to me, and I deeply appreciate their loyalty and readiness to advance my candidacy at the appropriate time." Doping the Baby. "At the first sign of an attempt to standardize and sterilize the babies," says Ella Parker Butler in Success magazine. "I organized the Fond Fa thers' Oop-de-baby Association of America. For thousands ot years fa thers have been permitted to oop-de baby unrestrained, and this right was one of the first rights attacked by the advocates of the automatic baby. I considered it a double blow at the baby and at the father and resented it as such. If a father may not oop his own baby, what is the world coming to? (Doping a baby is a father's great est pleasure. It Is the act of grasping the baby under the arms, tossing the baby into the air and catching it on its down trip, while the words 'Oop-de- ) baby!' are repeated at each toss. This is repeated until the baby is hysterical or drops on the floor by accident. It is then handed to its mother." o. L.

CALIFORNIA TO VOTE ON WOMAN'S SUFFRAGE On October 10, less than two weeks hence, the voters of California-, for the second time in the history of the state, will decide by their votes wheth er women shall have the right to vote. The laöt time women's suffrage was submitted to the ballot in that state it was defeated by only 9000 votes. Times have changed greatly since then and the advocates of women's rights are not only more hopeful of success than ever before but quite confident that California will wiu^the honor of becoming the sixth state* in the Union to grant suffrage to women. Never was a political campaign in that state fought with greater deter mination than the one now drawing to a close. The women of California realized the importance of a victory at this time and, inspired and en couraged by the success of the women in other western states, entered upon this campaign with tremendous en ergy and determination. When the legislature decided to submit a con stitutional amendment, giving women the right to vote, to a referendum vote on October 10, it did not find the women of the state unprepared. More than two years ago the first step was taken to prepare the women of California for just such an emer gency. It was Mrs. James Lees Laid law, chairman of the Women's Suf frage party of New York City, who by her individual efforts induced the women of California to organize for the purpose of making a fight for suffrage. The ground was well pre pared and, when the legislature voted for the submission of the women s suffrage amendment to the state con stitution, the organized women of that state were ready to begin the battle. Fully realizing the importance of a thorough and energetic campaign the women of California sent out an ap peal to the friends of women's suf frage throughout the United States and elsewhere. Nobly did their friends respond to the appeal. From all parts of the world came encourag ing letters from men and women in terested in the success of the women of California fighting for their rights. J. H. Braly of Pasadena, a retired business man of great wealth, organ ized under the name of The Political Equality league a powerful body of prominent men and women bound to WALLIS TELLS OF WORK IN IDAHO , Capitol News: Jas. H. Wallis, state pure food commissioner, has returned from an extensive trip through the east and south, during which he at tended the National Pure Food Com missioners' convention at Duluth, which he declares was one of the most successful meetings of that organiza tion ever held. After the convention he took a trip south through Tennesee and Virginia, where he had the pleas ure of visiting some of the best dairies in the United States. During his ab sence he also visited Washington, D. C. Speaking of the visit of air. Wallis to that city the Chattanooga Sunday Times has the following: Chattanooga is enjoying a visit from James H. Wallis, state dairy, food and sanitary inspector of Idaho. Commis sioner Wallis was in attendance at the national convention of federal and state food officials, just terminated in Duluth, Minn., and while here intends seeing some of oui- largest dairies. He visited the Hills' dairy establishment yesterday afternoon, and will inspect the farm from which most of their milk comes on Monday. He expects to go to Atlanta from here, and then to Washington, D. C., where he has busi ness with Secretaries Wilson and Nagel. Commissioner Wallis is also state sealer of weights and measures, and is now having a very expensive set of standards for Idaho tested at the bureau of standards at Washing ton. Commissioner Wallis is not a strang er in Chattanooga, having graduated from the law department of Grant uni versity several years ago. He was de lighted yesterday afternoon to meet Major C. R. Evans, dean of the insti tution, and congratulated him upon the excellent positions attained by several of his graduates who located in Utah and Idaho, some of whom are enjoying lucrative practice and others have been elected to till Important offices. Mr. Wallis is an enthusiast on sani tation, and spoke in an entertaining manner of the good work being done in his state. "We were the first state in the west to abolish the public drink ing cup, and we are the only state which has a compulsory slaughter house inspection law. It is a violation of the law to sell meat in Idaho which has not been prepared in a licensed abattoir, and we enforce the law to the letter. Meat cannot he transported on the cars or through the streets unless it is completely covered in a clean white cloth. The time has passed when a man could kill meat in any old place and ship it on the cars with no pro tection from the dust, dirt and flies. Whenever we catch meat under these conditions, we seize it and destroy it and prosecute the man responsible for it. "We are as careful to protect our milk supply with the same vigor. You cannot buy milk in any part of our state, only in glass bottles with sani- | tary caps on which is found the date when the milk was drawn from the cow. My deputies inspect these bottles s they are found on the street, and if the milk shows a dirty sediment at the bottom of these bottles, the law auth orizes them to desroy the milk and prosecute those responsible. "We have made a great fly campaign in Idaho for the past three years, and this spring, before the public schools closed, we placed in the hands of every child an illustrated booklet entitled 'The Story of a Fly.' "Public sentiment is with us in our efforts of the suffragists shrewdness and ability. is still doubtful, confident of success. gether by the common desire to aid the women's suffrage movement. In every state of the Union where there are friends of women's suffrage, meetings were held, resolutions passed, giving moral support to the battling suffragists in California and funds were contributed to help the women of that state in their great struggle. The women of New York, headed by Mrs. Laidlaw, willingly came to the assistance of their sisters on the Pacific coast. Miss Jeannette Rankin, sent by Mrs. Laidlaw. Mrs. Helen K. Hoy-Greeley, Mrs. Archibald C. Fisk and other distinguished lead ers and organizers of the women's suffrage movement in Greater New York, went to California to help by| word and deed in the campaign. Large sums were raised during the week of' self-denial, when men and women, anxious to help the women in Califor nia, denied themselves some luxuries I and contributed the money thus saved to the campaign fund. The energetic, businesslike and ef fective manner in which the women of California have conducted their campaign has been a revelation to such men even who have made politics a business for many years and have | grown gray by it. There was no un certainty about the methods employed and everything was thoroughly up-to date. The women throughout the state I were thoroughly organized and every where meetings were held, speeches made and literature distributed. In many places house-to-house canvasses were made by special committees Of women and all men favorable to the l movement were enlisted in the cam paign. The opposition, which includes. many distinguished and powerful men, like Gen. Harrison Gray Otis, former United States Senator Frank P. Flint, , i . . . Osc.cll .

CAPITOL TO COST OVER A MILLION the Boise—Work on the construction of Idaho's capitol has again been resum ed, and James Stewart & Co., contracting firm, who were recently awarded the contract for the finishing of the central section of the building, are assembling material on and about n, , .. 11 . the premises and have at present — gaged on the construction of the build ing about 49 men. en The cost of the building in its present state is approximtaely $430, 000 . The architects estimated that it would cost to finish and decorate the central section ready for occu pancy $750,000 in addition to the above. As the general contract for this centra! section was let some $0,0000 below their estimate, they fig ure at the present time that to com plete (lie central section of the build ing will cost $670,000, which will make a total cost, for the central section ready for occupancy of $1,100,000. The building as it now stands con sists of the exterior walls, the in terior walls and the steel work. The exterior walls are constructed of Idaho sandstone and granite, and it is con sidered an' excellent piece of archi tectural masonry work. The building of the scaffolding. for the support of the derrick and the raising of material in the con struction of the dome, has been commenced, the scaffolding extend ing 30 or 40 feet above the top 0 f the building. The excavation for the power house has been made, and also for the tunnel, and work on this build ing will be started the fore pan of this week I , . It is the intention ol the contrat- tot s to get tlie main portion of the building under root within the next 60 days and put a temporary root ovei the base ot the dome, so that the in- I tenoi of the building can be finished I complete during the winter months anc dunng the same period, the cat stone, terra-cotta and all materials I entering into the dome will be prepar ed at the yards ready to be placed in ' position early the coming spring. About March 15, 1912, this tempor ary roof over the base of the dome will be removed, and the construc tion of the dome proper will be com menced. The first floor hf the building will be completed ready for occupancy on or about July I, 1912. And the whole whole building will be completed on or before October 1, 1912. every Orpheum to Move.

I Of the several types of agricultural lands to he found in north Idaho, per liaps no one type presents more In terestlng features than does one which represents the low, or natural meadow lands bordering the St. Joe and St. Maries Rivers in Kootenai county. To a certain degree these lands are typl cal, too, of the low lands ot the Koot | enai River In Bonner county, and of the so-called marsh, or tule, lands ot I both counties. In their present un protected condition these lands are subject to annual overflow, and ex tensive areas are now in a partially submerged or water logged condition, I They are of particular value however, to the county in which they occur and to the agricultural interests of the . , . , , . , state in general - because it has been demonstrated that they are capable of being transformed from their present raw condition into the most fertile and productive lands of the state. A re , cen J tly l instituted survey of these low laads brings 0at the following points: From a geological standpoint they " ay be considered as resulting from the gradual deposit of alluvium car ried by mountain streams from the drainage basin of the respective rivers, an( j f ro m the decay of such vegetation as usua lly flourishes on low lands when subject t0 periodic inundation, p rom the standpoint of mechanical composition they may be described as fl ne sandy, or fine silty loams; a com position which means, great water holding capacity, and one which in sureB e asy cultivation, In chemical composition, they are rich In all the mineral elements required In plant nu nitrogen and humus. Their great depth ntrogen and humus. Their great depth and mechanical nature permits an un limited feeding range for plant roots and therefore under intelligent man agement, when diked and drained they will prove to be practically inexhausti ble. They are natural meadow lands and are capable of being converted into the finest timothy meadows of the state. But their greatest value to north Ida ho in general and to Kootenai county in particular, lies in the fact that when sufficiently drained and protected from overflow they will be found adapted to the most intensive cultivation. This fact will make possible a greatly in creased agricultural population, the benefits of which undoubtedly will be felt in the lumbering, mining, and all other interests of north Idaho. J. S. JONES, Station Chemist, University Experi ment Station.
