cial Session Opposed.
CABINET HOLDS MEETING
Offer Declared Made by Mr. Good
ing and Others Associated In
Deal Accept Proposal.
Cisco for making of foundation, and
the several talks and illustrated lec
tures were features of the annual
business meeting- of the Grays Harbor
Beekeepers' association. (
The offering of a reward came as a
result of the statement by M. Town
send of Elma that vandals had over
l turned hives and destroyed six colo
nies of bees Friday at his place.
By combining their wax shipments
with Anderson & Hanson in Aberdeen
for shipment to be made into founda
tion and returned to the members, it
is estimated the association members
will benefit yearly $300. Honey prices,
it was indicated, would be more sta
ble, as large shipments of southern
honey to the Seattle and nearby mar
kets had practically been consumed.
Officers elected are: J. J- Mahoney
of Elma, president, and Ed Davis,
secretary-treasurer. A membership
committee consisting of Mr. and Mrs.
W. L. Cox, Elma: Mr. and Mrs. Fred
Britain, Humptulips; John Walker,
Aberdeen, and George Gillette, Ho-
quiam, will work to enlarge the association.
5 BLIND MEN OUSTED
STATE BOARD SUSTAINS COM
BOISE, Idaho, Feb. 27. (Spelal.)
Idaho's congressional delegation to
day proposed to Governor Davis that
the state supervise the distribution
of the 260,000 acres of lieu lands al
lowed on Northern Pacific scrip by
the terms of house bill No. 77, now
before President Harding for his sig
nature. Governor Davis called his cabinet
into special session and discussed the
proposal at length, finally deciding
that the state might consider It if
Fred Gooding, James E. Clinton and
Homer Fenn, who held the contract
for the land, will assign it to the
They have already agreed to' ap
portionment of the lands by a special
committee composed of two represen
tative sheep men, two stock men and
a fifth member appointed at large.
Governor Davis proposed at a mass
meeting Saturday and reiterated the
proposal to the cabinet that the legis
lature be called into extra session to
provide ways and means for the
equitable distribution of the public
91 em hers Oppoae Plnn.
Members of his cabinet opposed this
plan at present, declaring they would
only consent to convening the legis
lature Inspecial session as a last re
sort. Hence, it was decided to ask
Mr. Gooding and his associates for an
assignment of the contract.
Members of the Idaho congressional
delegation made it clear, in telegrams
received today, that the bill was
passed with the full approval of the
members of the delegation and after
all had conferred. Mr. Gooding and
his associates notified Senator Borah
that they would consent to a distribu
tion of the lands under the supervi
sion of tlie state, but have not made
it clear as to what their attitude will
be with regard to an assignment of
Governor Makes Statement.
Regarding the calling of the legis
lature in session extraordinary. Gov
ernor Davis said:
"Public sentiment seems to demand
and has a right to do so a most
careful and orderly distribution. This
can best come through the state of
Idaho, thereby taking care of the In
terests of all concerned. The pri
vately owned lands Involved in the
option would be much more highly
valuable to the public where they
may be conserved and new timber
grown under the forest service while
the lieu land would be much more
highly developed and profitable if in
the hands of a number of individ
uals. "This seems to me to be the solu
tion of the whole matter, carrying
out the desires of the Idaho, delega
tion, the secretary of interior and
recretary of agriculture, and at the
same time safeguarding the interests
of the individual and the public.
"There is no question in my mind
but that the legislature will immedi
ately authorize the control, exchange
and distribution as outlined."
