NEW STATE ADMINISTRATION.
Next Monday the new state admin
istration takes charge of the affairs at
Boise and the legislature meets for
what ought to lie a very important
session. The next two years will be a
very important period for the state of
Idaho, for it is the reconstruction
period after the war. We are all deep-1
ly interested in the legislation that
will be passed at Boise in the next
two months and in the administration
of the state's affairs. We believe that
the state has a good set of officers,
Governor-elect Davis is a man of good
judgment, is thoroughly honest and is
a business man of ability and ought
to and no doubt will give the state
lature and we may look for good re
suits. If every other county sent as
a good, clean, business administration.
We know that Latah county has sent
a strong delegation to the state legis
good laws and not too many of them.
Every state officer who takes office

good a delegation the state will get

majority of both houses of the legisla
These men were elected by over
whelming majorities, some of them
geling the biggest majorities aver
given for such officers in this state.
They are the choice of the people.
They are the servants of the people
and are supposed to do the will 'of the
Of course those, who did not vote for
these men, or many of them, at least,
will not be in sympathy with them
and there will be fault finding by some
democratic politicians In Idaho, just
as there is fault finding by republic
an politicians in Washington, but "w®
believe the majority of the people of
Idaho will give the new state admin
istration and the legislature their sup
port and will not try to hamper or
binder by adverse criticism and fault
finding from partisan motives, only.
Let us give the new state adminis
tration our undivided support whether
we be democrats or republicans. They
are entitled to this. Drop pratizan
politics until the next campaign and
let us all feel that the administration
belongs to the state as a whole and
not to any prty or clique.

When we think of the inexpressibly
glorious achievements of the British
army and navy in the war

inexpressibly proud to have been able
to put out such a gallant toe in the

The suggestion made by a Mexican
official that a colony of American sol
diers be located in Mexico and secure
„ ^ .
homes there Is not a bad one. If the
colony wore I ■ rao dinreh for self pro-j

^mations of that turbulent country.
There Is some very rich land In Mex
ico that could be made very produc
tive If placed under the control of
Americans who really wanted to make
homes. A few thousand well trained
American soldiers located in Mexico
would be a valuable asset to the Uni
ted States In- case we should ever
again have touble with that country.
It might not be a bad idea for this gov
ernment to buy one of the large
■states of eastern Mexico and give It
to our soldiers for homes and there
is no doubt that thousands of soldiers
would be glad to avail themselves of
the opportunity to take and cultivate
May we be allowed to suggest to

the commission in its annual report?
This is not enough to carry on one
