WEST EXPLAINS That the Moscow Telephone & Tele graph company did not ask a reduction in the assessed valuation of its property in Latah county and knew nothing of any reduction having been made until ■ the evidence was brought out at the hear ing held here Tuesday is the statement of A. T. West, of 'Spokane, owner of the system. Mr. West says be does not know how or why the assessed valuation was dropped from $20,000 to $3,600, and today he asked E. J. Gemmill, county assessor for Latah county, to fix the value of the system at its old valuation. He addressed the following letter to Mr. Gemmill : "E, J. Gemmill, county assessor, Mos cow: Dear Sir.—It appears the assessed valuation of the property owned by this company was materially reduced recently by the state board of equalization. Evi dently the change resulted through an error of some kind since no one repre senting the company has taken the slight est action in the matter.

"Respectfully yours, "MOSCOW TELEPHONE & TELEGRAPH CO., LIMITED, "By A. T. WEST, "President;" Mr. West, who returned to Spokane today, but expects to come to Moscow to reside as soon as it is decided whether the government will continue in control of the property, said that the first inti mation he had that a reduction in the assessed value of the property had been made was when it was shown in the hearing Tuesday. He bought the prop erty by taking an option on it in April, but the deal was not closed until some time in May. He says he never made out any report to the county assessor or state board of equalization as to the value of the property. Under the reduction as made by the state board of equalization the company would have paid $678.96 less taxes for 1918 than for 1917. Carter Glass Succeeds McAdoo.

Suttro is a writer of social dramas. Maeterlink, a well known mystic, is at his best in the poetic tragedy Mr. Bridge has chosen.

SCHOOL OF NINES 10 HELP SOLDIERS SHORT COURSE IN MINING TO BE ARRANGED FOR BENEFIT OF MEN IN SERVICE The miners' short course at the Uni versity of Idaho is being planned this year to serve as aid to demobilization and reconstruction. From inquiries already received from some of the western can tonments it is evident that for many young men the brief army training has served to quicken their ambition and to make them anxious to fit themselves for greater usefulness. To all such men interested in mining either in its specu lative aspect or as a means of earning a livelihood, the eight-weeks' course offer ed by the Idaho School of Mines at Mos cow, should prove very attractive. The course given includes the study of ore-forming minerals and the manner of their occurrence, special attention be ing given this year to the less common minerals, such as tungsten, manganese, molybdenum, quicksilver and the like which have been in such great demand during the war, such a knowledge should be of great assistance to all engaged in mining work or having mining interests, as it will enable them to identify many minerals not usually recognized. This work will be supplemented by blow-pipe and other simple tests for the common as well as the uncommon metals. The course also includes a laboratory training necessarily brief, of course, in fire-assaying for gold and silver and in some of the simpler wet methods for de termining a few of the more common elements, following this, experimental work in testing ores by the different methods of treatment is carried on in the Idaho mining laboratories which are everywhere recognized as second to none the west. One of the most generally appreciated features of the course is a series of in teresting lectures covering in a general way the field of mining and ore treat ment with a brief discussion of mining law. Where a sufficient number of per sons with necessary preparation desire course in simpler mine surveying, such course will be arranged. Some of the men who have been in valided home from overseas would find enrollment in a course of this character in some part of it, a pleasant means establishing new interests while re gaining full strength for heavier work. Of course as before the course will be open to all mature persons who desire enroll in it whether they have been the army or not. ^^Wrk^vilniegii^^imiar^Handrun forJ > iyg ic DAVIDS 9 Grocery Deparment SPECIALS For Friday, Saturday and Monday We turn our stock almost once a month, insuring you fresh, new Groceries every time you buy. advantages in buying quantitiei Ordering by dozens, as we have told you, adds still another saving Our large turn-over also givea us —this saving is passed on to you. for your purse.
