League of Commercial Clubs.
The meeting of the League of
Southern Idaho commercial clubs
jjeid in Boise last week was a great
gucoess. Unanimity was the key

which provides that the railroads
shall not receive as much compen
sation for a short as for a long
haul, was endorsed. Numerous
other subjects were discussed and
proper measures taken, probably

Successful Entertainment.
The entertainment given at the

the teachers and was. thoroughly
enjoyed by a packed house,
box supper was the financial fea

Financial Situation Improving.
Money seems to be a little more
freely circulated the past few days.
New York is shipping coin to the
weft now and there seems to be a
general feeling that the depression
will soon be at an end. The situ
ation locally (here in Long valley)
has not been alarming. The local
banks have refused to make loans
or cash outside drafts, but that was
simply a matter of policy to pro
tect their depositors. They have
all the time been paying cash on
their own checks and are now be
ginning to be able to get money
from their depositories. In his
New York speech Secretary Cortel
you says: "Now that the financial
storm appears to be subsiding, we
should turn our attention more
and more to the relief of the coun
