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
Mayor Osmers and P. R. Bevis,

TO RE PROTESTED
MOSCOW CITIZENS WILL OBJECT
TO LOCAL COMPANY INCREAS
ING ITS RATES
The hearing on the application of
the Moscow Telephone company for
the privilege of increasing its rates,
which was to have been held here
on October 22, has been indefinitely
postponed because of the influenza
order which forbids the holding of
any public meetings. George G.
Pickett, city attorney, received notice
from the public utilities commission
of Idaho, by telegraph today, that
the hearing has been "indefinitely
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

double the rates on rural lines, and
pledging the signers to assist finan

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

been investigating the matter, that,
under the present rates, the system
pays big dividends and evidence of
this is being secured by Moscow citi

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

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
