LEWIS MAKES REPORT TO GOUNGIU WELL KNOWN CITIZEN EX PLAINS LIBERTY BOND SUB SCRIPTIONS TO BOARD L. F. Parsons, chairman of the Latah county council of defense, gives the following report of the work of the council at held a last night. Mr. Parsons says: The county council of defense met last night for the purpose of hearing the matter of the classification and j bond quotas of M. E. Lewis and the | deferred classification of John Jack s ha, Jr. The case of M. E. Lewis has caused a great deal of comment on the streets and has been referred to in the press and considerable interest has been generated therein, owing to the fact that Mr. Lewis has been rated by the public as a very wealthy man, and the subscriptions made by him as published have not been in accordance with his supposed wealth. Mr. Lewis appeared before the council and made a detailed statement in reference to his financial affairs. It was shown that Mr. Lewis' opera tions and all the holdings in his name were the interests of a corporation which he was manager and a stock holder. That the most of the property of this corporation was unsalable, non-productive land, and was a liabil ity instead .of a resource at this time. That there was a heavy indebtedness against the property of the corpora tion and that the quota of $1300 of bonds which had been assigned to him which he took, was greater than he should be required to take. He stated that he had about $2150 in war se curities and had taken all that he pos sibly could. After a full discussion of the mat ter it was moved, seconded and unani mously voted that it was the sense of the council that Mr. Lewis had taken more than his full share of war s*, curities in accordance with his fin ancial ability. The matter of the classification of John Jacksha, Jr., was taken up for consideration, classification of Mr. Jacksha have been coming to the council for sev eral months past and was referred to the chairman for modification some weeks ago. The chairman made his report which showed as follows: That Mr. Jacksha was registered in the first draft and was placed in class one. He appealed to the district board for agricultural exemption and his appeal denied. He then appealed to the president and his appeal was again denied. He was called for serv ice and went to Camp Lewis for train ing in the fall of 1917. His father then appealed to the exemption board at Camp Lewis ask ing for his release on agricultural grounds, setting forth that the young man had léased the ranch the year previous and that he, the father, was unable to manage the same. The mat ter was heard by the board at Camp Lewis and it recommended his dis charge on the ground that he was more valuable to his country as man aging head of a 505 acre farm than Complaints on the as a soldier. His return home immediately start ed discussion. The why or wherefore was not understood by the public. It was intimated that money had been use< J a ? d the boy was accused of being a slacker and pro-German. Gonsid era kj e feeling was produced. A few ( j ays ago t j, e youn g man was caused f 0 kjgg the flag at Uniontown, Wash. He came to Moscow yesterday and asked the council to take action. The chairman stated that in making his investigation he considered that the right of Jacksha, Jr. to a deferred classification depended solely on the fact whether or not he was a lessor and managing head of his father's ranch in good faith prior to the dec laration of war. That if he was, un der the rules he was entitled to such deferred classification. He stated that there had been filed with him affi davits of several reputable citizens to that effect which he read. He stated further that the crop of grain as har vested in 1917 had been marketed in the name of Jacksha and son and that two merchants had stated that the son had contracted bills and paid same which further tended to show that the son was operating the farm on his own account. After a full discussion of the mat ter by the council and questioning of both the father and son, it was moved and unanimously voted that it was the sense of the council that John Jack sha, Jr. was the lessor of his father's ranch prior to the declaration of war, and as such, under the draft rules, was entitled to deferred classification on occupational grounds.
