BOISE. Idaho. Not. 16. (Special.)
The passing of the general election has
brought Into prominence the new ad
ministration that will come Into power,
and the inauguration of the next legis
lature. In many respects the admlnis-
tration-elect is similar to the admlnis
tratlon that Is soon to pass, prior to Its
Inauguration, for two rears ago the
Iemocrats went into power with con
trol "of all important elective offices
and the Legislature, and the Repub
licans will do the same thing January
1. 1913. Their victory Is even more
complete than was that of the Demo
crats, for they have captured every
state office. The Incoming administra
tion will bo able to enact such policies
as It desires to adopt. Into law, for the
Legislature will be under control of
Republican Influence.
As there Is a great period of recon
struction coming, it la likely that much
beneficial legislation will be proposed
to bring about Interior development.
Governor-elect D. W. Davis Is said to
be in hearty sympathy with this class
of legislation. Two years ago he made
his campaign on an Issue relating to
the disposal of lands which would soon
brine: about a taxless state, the re
sources of Idaho would be so greatly
Increased thereby.
Fans Legtslatlea FavwreA.
The platform of the Republican party
pledges It to the enactment of strong
farm legislation beneficial to the farmer
and agriculturalist. It pledges tne
party to pass laws that will help and
strengthen labor. It Is for the direct
election of members of the publia utili
ties commission, good roads and for
re-atabllshment of the office of labor
commissioner, for the control and pro
motion by the state of the development
of the unused water power and the sub
mission of an amendment to the consti
tution to the people to bring this about.
What may prove to be one of the most
Important planks in the platform Is the
ana declaring for restoration of the
reclamation policy In order that homes
and lands may be provided for return
ing soldiers.
A strong effort will be made to re
peal the direct primary law, or at least
so amend it as to provide a primary

and state conventions which will
nominate the candidates of the respec
tive Dartles Instead of nominating
them by direct vote. Neither part)
Is pledged to the repeal, of the law, but
many leaders In the parties believe that
it should be so changed as to prevent
Centura of one party's organization by
nominating candidates on its ticKet as
was done by the Nonpartisans this au
In this state.

Ex-Governor Frank R. Gooding, who

Someone had to make the fight, he

New Solution Discovered by Georgia College Professor ;
Designed to Kill Deadly "Flu" Germ First Used It
to Protect Own Family Just a Few Drops Inhaled
From Pocket Handkerchief Disinfects Nose and
AS announced in yesterday's papers, Wilson's Solution, the new
nrpvprrHvp treatment for finarrisri Tnflnpnra wrnVTi Vino Vioon
used in checking; the epidemic in the South, is now on sale in
Portland, and will be given as rapid distribution as possible
throughout the United states. The solution, or ' Anti-Flu, as it
is more commonly eaiiea. was com
pounded by Professor Robert C. Wilson,
for eleven years head of the-department
of pharmacy of a leading South
ern university, for the protection of
himself and family against the malady,
The Immunity of the Wilson family
and their circle of friends, which fol
lowed the use of the solution, made it
famous overnight. On account of his
unJVersity connection and his high
standing as an educator, the people of
his home city began clamoring for it
ust as soon as it oecame Known that
he had perfected the formula. Leading
physicians, specialists and bacteriolo
gists give the preparation their un
qualified Indorsement and are recom
mending It to their patients.
Although far more powerful than
many other disinfectants now common
ly used, it Is non-poisonous, and the
odor, although very pungent, is not
unpleasant. A few drops of the solu
tion inhaled from a pocket handker-
hlef at frequent intervals will disin
fect the nose and throat. Professor
Wilson strongly recommends spraying
the nose and throat night and morning I
with the solution In a diluted form
according to directions accompanying
the bottle.
It is Professor Wilson's theory thst
the Influenza germ in the nose and
throat can be killed by the powerful
antiseptic vapors of the solution just
as efficiently as you can kill germs in
a room by fumigation.
One of the greatest advantages over
other preparations is the fact that it
can be conveniently carried on the per
son, and is always ready for use when
entering crowds or public places.
Local druggists are already reporting
an enormous demand for the prepara
tion and are experiencing considerable
difficulty in keeping a supply on hand.
A 35-cent vial is sufficient for a week's
treatment. The preparation is sold by
all druggists.
Wilson's Solution, which Is also known
as Anti-Flu, Is to be used as a pre
ventive treatment only and got as a
cure. If you contract Spanish In
fluenza call your doctor at onoe.
