Physician Persuades Execu
tive to Leave Olympia. .
lieutenant Goernor Hart Tempora
rily Assumes Duties of Office.
1 Bills to Hccoinc Laws.
' OLT31PIA. Wash., Feb. 12. (Spe
cial.) Governor Frnest Lister. who
has been seriously ill for several
"weeks, this afternoon was taken in
a steam-heated ambulance from his
home in Olympia to the private resi
dence of Superintendent AY. X. Keller,
t the tVashinirton state hosnital near
Tnooma. On formal request of Gov-
f'lixor Liater. Lieutenant-Governor
Louis F. Hart at once assumed the of
fice of acting governor.
Dr. Keller, as family physician for
Governor Lister, yesterday was called
in consultation while on leave from
the fnilitary medical corps, in which
he has served with the rank of major
during the war. He agreed to resign
his commission and give the case his
immediate personal attention on con
dition that Governor Lister consent
to removal from Olympia at once, in
order to assure absolute freedom from
official concerns, and give himself and
physician every possible advantage.
Governor to Laj Aside Duties
As a trip to California was found
on further investigation to be inad
visable at this time. Dr. Keller insisted
that the governor be taken to the state
hospital, where he could have every
benefit of modern treatment and
nursing. Governor Lister's consent to
lay aside his official duties and submit
to this arrangement was not obtained
until late today, when he was finally
convinced that it offered his only
chance for recovery.
It is understood that he was frankly
told he could not expect to live more
than 10 days under present conditions.
. Dr. Keller was with Governor Lister
in Chicago when the executive was
first stricken last summer and com
pelled to go to a sanitarium. The gov
ernor has had a losing fight since then
to regain his health, due to the fact
that he insisted upon remaining at his
office the customary long hours and
personally attending to executive
Executive Determined to Mork.
The governor was indifferent to med
ical advice. For several months he
steadily lost strength, until at the
opening of the legislature he was tot
tering on his feet, yet still determined
' to do his work. As a forced com
promise he assented to remaining at
his home here, with Dr. Henry Suz
y.allo and Attorney-General "W. V.
Tanner acting as his advisory repre
jsentatatives at the executive offices,
ut retained authority over all ex
ecutive statements and actions and in
sisted upon being closely informed
upon all matters outside of routine.
Jle was especially active prior to and
during the recent general strike, when
he personally directed the machinery
for providing troops and all other
necessary safeguards oC law and order.
These exertions are reported to be
largely responsible for the governor's
present crisis, which amounted last
right to an immediately dangerous re
lapse. Today, however, the governor
appeared cheerfully willing to try to
continue work, and the combined ar
guments of wife, daughter and physi
cians were necessary to induce him to
decide, to submit to temporary retire
ment. Mrs. Lister accompanied him to
the state hospital, and Florence Lister
followed shortly.

Governor Lister's trouble is gener
ally stated as a complication of or
ganic illness carrying diabetic symp
toms, all resulting, it is stated, from
overwork and lack of exercise and re
laxation. He is 4 8 years old and his
t-ix years as governor have been marked

issued the following statement:
"Knowing that I voice the prayer
of all the people of the state in ex
pressing the sincere wish for speedy
and complete recovery of Governor
Lister to his accustomed strength and
vigor, I temporarily assume the duties
of chief executive at a time when
much laborious detail work incident to
a legislative session must of necessity
prevent me from giving deep and con
tinuous study to those grave questions
so important to our state in the re
habilitation and readjustment of af

pendous task of preparing to meet
those questions and handle them in the
interest of the people has undermined
the health of Governor Lister and de
prived the state temporarily of his

Committee to Draft Constitution and
Articles of Incorporation; Mass
Meeting Held.
PASCO. Wash., Feb. 12. (Special.)
For the purpose of discussing ways
and means for solving the irrigation
water problem now confronting this
community a mass meeting was held
here yesterday.
City Attorney O'Brien outlined his
plan as follows: A company should
be organized with a capital of $50,000,
the stock to be subscribed by the citi
zens of Pasco at $10 a share. A board
of directors should be elected, whose
duty should be to see that the capital
of the company is invested in some
securities which would bring the max
imum of return on the investment and
at the same time assist in the de
velopment of the community.
Mr. O'Brien explained that consid
erable land under the Franklin county
irrigation district was to be sold on
February 21 for delinquent taxes. It
is necessary that these taxes be col
lected so that the district can sell its
bonds to improve and enlarge its sys
tem. The proposed company could
purchase the certificate of sale of
lands, making it possible for the ir
rigation ! district to sell its bonds,
which would in turn make it possible
for it to furnish water for irrigating
lawns and gardens, and as these cer
tificates draw 12 per cent interest, it
would be a paying investment for the
company. This, Mr. O'Brien explained,
is only one of the ways the company
could assist in the development work
of the community and at the same
time make a safe investment for the

The 44th county in this state came into
existence yesterday when Governor
Davis signed house bill No. 4. by White
man, creating the county of Caribou
out of territory now included in Ban
nock county. It is probably the last
new county that will be created by the
present legislature, and is the third,
that has passed both houses, meeting
their approval and that of the gov
ernor. The only amendment to the bill
is that this spring there is to be held
an election to determine whether a few
townships shall vote to go into the old
county or remain in the new. Soda
Springs is made the county seat.

cabinet or commission form of govern
ment for the state, consolidating many
departments to reduce government ex
penses will likely be passed today. The
joint conference committee reported
the amendment of the house to the sen
ate. In which the senate at first de
clined to concur. The disagreemen
arose over clerical errors and not the
substance of the amendments.
The senate passed more bills yester
day than on-any single day since the
sossion opened. The house also made
a good record in bills passed and intro
duced. Among the more important
measures that passed the house was a
bill that changes the entire state sys
tem for assessing property, requiring
that it be assessed biennially instead
of annually. It was claimed in support
! of this measure that it will save thou
sands of dollars to the various counties,
especially those with timber in the

taught in the public schools of Idaho.
Johnson of Kootenai urged in favor of
extending the power of the act so that
all dead and modern foreign languages
be barred, but the house would not ac
cept the amendment.
The club women's bill, allowing a
homestead exemption, was recom
mended for passage after being i
amended to fix the exemption at JoOOO
instead of $2500. House bill No. 55, re
quiring grain storage elevators to take
out bonds, was the cause of heated de
bate, but was left in committee of the
whole without action.
