'LOWER TAXES' BIG ISSUE
Platform Utterances Do Xot SatisfyJ
Voters, Who Demand That Spe
cific Methods or Affecting Pro-
posed Reforms Be Cleared.
BOISE. Idaho. May 23. (Special.)
The fight for Gubernatorial honors at
the Republican primaries has within
the past week developed into a three
cornered one. with Governor John M.
Ilalnes. incumbent; Judge James M.
Stevens, of Blackfoot, and M. E. Lewis,
of Moscow, contenders. That Govern
or Haines will have most strenuous
opposition is now clearly apparent to
the Haines and anti-Haines factions
within the party.
The three candidates eive all sec
tions of the state representation in the
contest. Judge Stevens is from the
southeast. Governor Haines from the
outh and southwest and Mr.. Lewis
from the north.
The chief issue of the campaign will
be taxation, for the people of Idaho
were never so Interested in an issue,
caused by the steady Increase of taxes
the past few years. To meet this issue
the people will .expect candidates for
Governor and Legislature to express
themselves fully aa to how they expect
to give t h. demanded relief and what
specifio suggestions or plans they have
to accomplish this.
All Three File Plnlformii.
Although the three candidates have
Announced their candidacies, with plat
form statements, without exception
these statements have been disappoint
ing, in that they are not specific
111 Jits announcement Judge Stevens
proposes this plan of lowering taxes:
"After much thoughtI am convinced
that the solution of the tax question is
to be found in the sale of the matured
timber from ' the stn4e lands; the
sale of the state lands and the
investment of the money derived
therefrom. This money should ba
loaned to the farmers and citizens
of Idaho at a low rate of interest and
the people allowed to improve their
farms and homes, increasing the tax
able valuation and shift ng the burden
of government from the shoulders of
the few to the many.
"frora this Interest; figured on a 4
per cent basis, in a few years the state
and the public schools could be run
and public highways built without one
cent of direct taxation.
"From the official figures it appears
that at the present rate it will take
more than 150 years to dispose of
Idaho's land holdings."
Courts ( out IOO Per Uay.
Judge Stevens also urges a reduc
tion of court costs in ah courts. It
costs about J100 a day. Judge Stevens
says, to run the district courts.
Mr. Lewis, .in his official announce
"T stand for tho law, will obey It and
make it respected by others, high and
low. I stand for efficiency in public
service, and think the tax dollar should
buy as much as the private dollar. I
stand for economy, fewer boards, com
missions and duplicating officials and
less surplus help In state affairs; for
simplifying the work of the Govern
ment and eliminating expensive fads
"I believe in long-time farm credit,
and that the State Land Board should
try to secure it for Carey act settlers.
1 believe in lon-tinie terms ' on all
state land contracts. We want inter
est, not principal payments."

Many matters of pertinent interest
were up for discussion and will be put

each member. Realizing the strength
and value to the state from co-operation
and a continued optimistic front,
there was not a "knocker" in the en

and pad ready for general boosting and
for every locality.
Mayor Clark presided at the banquet
and called for pertinent toasts. Judge
Lowell, of Pendleton, added his jovial
face and stories to the occasion. The

. has anyone been able to pay $5.00 down with bis

volumes complete in one shipment. All previous
methods of publication have involved the issue of
each volume separately, and its sale and delivery
to subscribers separately. The 25' volumes of the

period of fourteen years 1875 to 1889.

Several men sat down together in London and

great standard work of reference of the whole world.
"We will go to work," said one of the men,
"and make the whole Encyclopaedia Britan
niea the whole story of human knowledge
down to date, as one complete work, before
we put a line of it into type, or print a copy
for sale. This is the way the book ought to
be made, but has never been made."
Eight years were given to the undertaking, a'nd

finished and ready to print, the manuscript con

an idea which not only ensured a much better
book, but a much cheaper one than ever before, be
cause it was now possible to print and bind the
whole 29. volumes of an enormous encyclopaedia, as
one complete book, and therefore reduce all manu
facturing costs to a minimum. (If it had been pro
duced undcr the old piece-meal, volume-by-volunie
method of publication, the selling price would have
been 30 to 40 per cent higher.) Also, it enabled the
t 'publishers of the work to conduct the

There are 1500 contributors, of "1 different coun
tries, including the chancellors, presidents and
principals of 54 uni-verslties and colleges, besides
650 other members of the faculties of these and 92
other such institutions: 101 members of the staffs
of observatories, laboratories and surveys: 126 am

Kovernments; 527 historians; 107 agriculturalists
and biologists; 62 business men and manufacturers;

on a Gigantic Scale
10,000 sets at a time. Printers and binders could
be employed continuously, as long as there was a
; ready demand, and a new printing could follow
immediately after the preceding one was off the
press. The demand, fortunately, was constant, so
that the mere saving in printing and binding in large
lots was sufficient to justify the publishers in keep
ing the selling price at a low figure. If the manu
facturing had been in small lots instead of large
lots, we should long ago have had to increase the
prices. When you buy the new Britanniea, there
fore, you profit not only by an idea which has given
the public the best, the fullest and most nearly
perfect encyclopaedia ever issued, but
You Profit by
in cost of raw materials, printing and binding. You
may gain some idea of the magnitude of the manu
facturing from the fact that we have had to use
more than 2100 tons of India paper for the 11th
edition, the skins (for binding) of 825,000 sheep and
goats, and that 16 large cylinder presses have been
at work continuously for more than two years and
have now been printed, bound and delivered to
date at these low prices,, which, we are about to
increase. You can share in the present success of
this offer at low prices, and, if you send your order
at once, using the attached order form, you will
never, regret it. But
can you get these beautifully-printed, handsomely
bound India paper volumes at such a low price.
After Thursday next we must advance the prices by
$29 to $50 a set, according to the binding. Our
letter of instructions from the publishers of the New
Encyclopaedia Britanniea, the Cambridge Univer
city Press of England, says:
"Under no circumstances will any
"extension after May 28th be given,
- "and orders at present prices post
" marked after that date must be re
" turned. (Signed)
"C. F. CLAY, ,
After May 28th
the new Britanniea will be manufactured in small
lots, a few thousand ,sets each year, and, as the
manufacturing cost will be so much higher, the sell
ing price will have to be increased in proportion.
It Is Impossible
at the Moment
to promise any immediate deliveries at all, because
of the fact that the 'demand for the work is still
insistent, and has, in fact, more than trebled within
two weeks, so that no more complete sets can be sent
out until a new supply arrives from the binder.
If You Don't Want to Wait
a Long .Time for Your Books
If you are content to wait for delivery until
next Fall, order on Thursday next.
All orders are being dealt with absolutely in
rotation, each receiving a number, whether for cash
in full, or on the plan of $5.00 a month.
If you order today, your number will be at
least three thousand perhaps 5000 ahead of
Thursday's orders, and you will then receive your
set so much the more quickly.
