NEZPERGE STRICKEN WITH INFLUENZA LEWISTON ASKED TO HELP TOWN WHERE DISEASE HAS BEEN FATAL TO FOUR • LEWISTON.—Dr. E. L. White of the White hospital, Lewiston, who has been assisting in handling the influenza epidemic in Nez Perce, made an urgent appeal today that 26 or more Lewiston people go to Nez Perce today to act as nurses there and that as many physicians as pos sible also go. Dr. White states "there is not a family in Nez Perce where there is not one to two cases, and in some instances entire families are stricken. The situation is not con fined to the town. There are cases in the country where whole families are ill and no one to attend them" It was stated that Dr. Gist, Dr. Taylor and Dr. Dunlap have been try ing to meet the situation, but that Dr. Gist is ill and the remaining two physicians are worked to the point of exhaustion. Dr. White urged quick action on the part of Lewiston people today, asking that those who can make the trip by automobile reach Nez Perce at the earlist possible moment. Mayor Osmers and P. R. Bevis, president of the Lewiston Commercial club, in cooperation with Dr. Susan Bruce, city health officer, and Dr. Alley, county physician, are making arrangements for relief work.

George G. Pickett, city attorney, received notice from the public utilities commission of Idaho, by telegraph today, that the hearing has been "indefinitely postponed." Moscow citizens have registered a vigorous protest against raising tele phone rates here. The rates are re garded as high now, and the propo sition to increase them has aroused much feeling here. A petition pro testing against any advance in rates and stating that the company pro poses to increase rates in town and double the rates on rural lines, and pledging the signers to assist finan cially in fighting: the proposed ad vance, is being circulated and liber ally signed. The telephone system here was owned by T. A. Meeker, who sold it last spring to A. T. West, of Dav enport, who asked, soon after buying the system, for permission to increase the rates. Moscow citizens and pat rons of the rural lines are preparing to put up a vigorous fight against the proposed increase in rates and are preparing complaints against the service which will be presented to the utilities commission when it meets here for the hearing of the applica It is claimed, by those who have been investigating the matter, that, under the present rates, the system pays big dividends and evidence of this is being secured by Moscow citi zens to present to the commission. The hearing is expected to be an in teresting one. tion. GET WRITING GRAZE Yankee Fighters Heap Troubles on the Censor. When Out of the Trenches He "Tells 'Em About It" in Reams and Reams. Paris.—The letter-writing craze has struck the American army. Just as soon as he gets out of the trenches the doüghboy washes up, scurries around for pen and paper and sits down to tell 'em all about It. And he tells 'em In reams and reams. "Well, let's see," he says, as he meditatively kicks his steel helmet under bis cot 'Tve got to write to ma and pa, Kittle and Johnny Boggs over at Canton, O. Then, I owe Nell John son a letter. And I've got to stwlbble a few lines to Uncle Abe and Aunt Minnie. After that I'll answer those letters of Bill and Tom." Writing materials—paper and en velopes—are not always plentiful where the doughboy Is stationed, and for a while It was doubtful whether the last of his correspondence list would receive their letters, for the supply In the small town stores was soon exhausted. But the Y. M. C. A., learning of this scarcity, soon ar ranged to supply all contingents. It sent out seven million sheets of writ ing paper and some 3,500,000 envelopes a month. With the tremendous growth of the expeditionary force, orders have been Increased and the estimate for next year is 120,000,000 sheets of paper and 60,000,000 envelopes. This means that the Yanks will use about 720 tons of writing materials— 720 tons of news and comfort for the folks at home. And when the censor officers stop to consider It they grow weak, for it Is their duty, along with everything else, to censor the letters and see to It that the soldier uses discretion and doesn't mention things of military Importance, CUT OUT FRAIS DURING WAR Fraternity Houses and Clubs at Syra cuse to Be Used as Barracks.

Senate Joint Resolution No. 4 pro vides for amending section 4, article 12, of the Constitution of Idaho to permit counties and municipalities to become stockholders in. and give financial aid to fair associations, not organized for profit. Senate Joint Resolution No. 5 pro vides that section 1, article 4, of the Constitution of Idaho be amended to, the end that the office of state superin tendent be abolished.

House Joint Resolution No, .. pro vides that section 4, of article 2, of the Constitution of Idaho to permit a change in the manner of electing officers for incorporated companies. for The constitutional amending that instrument are as follows : "It shall be the duty of the legislature to submit such amendment or amend ments to the electors of the state at the next general election, and cause the same to be published without delay for at least six consecutive weeks, prior to said elec tion in not less than one newspaper of general circulation, published in each county;" provisions The legislature which adopted the foregoing joint resolutions provided "The secretary of state is hereby authorized to make publication of the proposed amendments in each county once a week for six consecutive weeks prior to the general election, in a newspaper of gen eral circulation published in each county." The general election at which the pro posed amendments are to be submitted to the electors of Latah county will occur November 5th, a little more than two weeks hence; yet how many of our elec tors know that certain amendments to the State Constitution, one of which means higher taxes, are to be proposed at that election? Why do so few persons know about the proposed amendments? Simply be cause the secretary of state is not giv ing heed to either the law, or the Con stitution, both of which provide that the amendments shall be published once a week for six consecutive weeks prior to the general election in a newspaper of general circulation published in each, county. A few of the electors in Latah county, not many, have learned that certain amendments to the State Constitution are being published in the Troy News, and perhaps in the Kendrick Gazette, both of which papers have but little other than local circulation, and the publishers are too conscientious to claim that their You will find you save more and live better if you trade at the THIRD STREET MARKET CHICKENS, GEESE, DUCKS AND HIDES WANTED PHONE 248 L.
