Idaho, March S. The fif teenth Idaho legislature has completed its labors. After 62 days of lawmaking the general public is given a breathing spell and an opportunity to review what it has accomplished. That a large amount of constructive legislation has been passed, together with much that is immaterial, is generally conceded. The appropriations will be high when the final summary is made, but special or .general tax levies, found to be imper ative if the state is to keep abreast of the times, will not be burdensome. Uenerally speaking, the legislature has accomplished many things it set out to do. On the whole the record is satisfactory, especially to the party that was dominant the republican. Many of its pledges have been enacted into laws and other good legislation, that the planks did not call for, was sent to the governor. State Government niinucd. First and primarily, the form of state government was remodeled and ma terially changed. This was proposed by Governor Davis and met with the approval of both houses. Tin govern or is given a. cabinet of nine members standing at the head of as many de partments, grouped under which are present state commissions, boards and departments, co-ordinated and consol idated. Governor Davis will appoint this cabinet that Is, he will name its head. This centers responsibility in administering of the affairs of state. The backers of this new form of gov ernment claim that it will be found just as successful in Idaho as it has proved to be in the state of Illinois. On March 31 the plan will go into effect. The legislature did not forget its so" 'iers and, regardless of the fact that o ii-css failed to push through its land settlement plan during the last session, the Idaho solons passed the necessary legislate. to work in co-operation with the government, and passed a bill creating a state commis sion which the governor will appoint for that purpose. Three 3eiv Counties Made. The number of counties in the state was increased from 41 to 44 through the creation of three new counties. Jerome, Clark and Caribou. The former has Jerome as the countyseat and is organized out of parts of Gooding, Lincoln and Minidoka counties. Clark is created out of the western portion of Fremont county, with Dubois as the countyseat; and Caribou is formed out of Bannock county, with Soda Springs as the seat of government. The offi cers of all three counties have been appointed by the governor. The annexation acts for Franklin, Camas, Ada and Bonneville counties failed. The proposed new counties of Take in the north and Nampa and Buhl in the south also met with de feat. Th- general enabling act to permit counties to settle their own division problems by popular vote In stead of the legislature to be troubled with them every session it convenes, was aleo killed. Levy for Rond Panned. Good roads and better highways came in for favorable consideration Face to face with an exhausted limit in bond issues, a two-mill levy law was passed which, by direct taxation. will raise II. 800.000 to be distributed over the main trunk highways of the state. Combined with the help of coun tics and the federal government, it makes possible the expenditure of ap proximately $6,000,000 on Idaho's high ways in 1919 and 1920. There was appropriated $200,000 for the maintenance of the highways, and the interest rate on the $900,000 bond issue of the fourteenth session, still unsold, was raised from 4 to 4"-i per cent to permit their sale immediately. In addition greater leeway was given to county commissioners and good road districts in all parts of the state to build better roads. Aid for Institutions. Liberal allowances were made for the various state institutions, not only for maintenance but for needed additions and new buildings as well. The state normal at Lewiston was allowed $150, 000 for a new administration building. Other allowances were for a girls' building for the. Idaho industrial train ing school at St. Anthony to cost $r0.- 000, a building for the state feeble minded institute at Nampa to cost $50, 000, and a building for the deaf and . blind school at Gooding. ' The attempt to consolidate the Albion state normal with the Idaho Technical institute at Pocatello, approved and indorsed by the state board of education, failed. , The educational laws of the state were codified. Teachers in public and private schools wre removed from the jurisdiction of the state industrial accident boar-i and the school laws generally strengthened. In the future all instruction for all subjects -in both prtvate and public schools will be ex clusively in the Knglish language, for it is made a misdemeanor to instruct in any other language. The Americani zation plan for the education of for eigners by giving them special instruc tion in fc'nglish and the Knglish lan guage was also approved. Capitol Addition Planned. Conditioned upon Boise securing the approaches to the state capitol building and parking them, the legislature au thorized the issuance of $900,000 in bonds to raise the necessary funds to complete the state capitol by building on the two wings at a cost of $450,000 each. There was authorized construct ed at Lenora in Boundary county, across the Ivootenai river, a bridge; $30,000 was appropriated for improve ments along the Snake river in Mad ison and Jefferson counties: $52,000 for the improvement of Lava Hot Springs In Bannock county and $30,000 for a , drainage district in Kootenai county. The land board was given greater . power in dealing with and adjudicating water rights in Carey act projects and $20,000 was appropriated for an in vestigation of the water resources of the state. The bonded warehouse act was passed, measures to prevent dis crimination in handling farm produce, and a bonded real estate dealers bill. A new fish and game law was passed, acts to codify the laws of salesman ship, etc.. and boxing was legalized. A measure was approved to reimburse stockowners for stock condemned for tuberculosis; creating a state constab ulary to enforce the laws; authorizing the governor to reorganize the state militia; $50,000 provided In indirect taxes for the state fair at Boise and thar Lewiston livestock show. Primary "Law Repealed. One of the most far-reaching acts of the legislature prior to adjournment was passage of the act eliminating the state-wide primary law and substitut ing in its place another providing that mm I mm v.?

Sometimes but not always by the reputa tion of the maker. AL WAYS by the reputa tion of the seller. There are some Piano houses that will not sell a Piano that is not good all through. This House is one of them. For forty-five years we held to this resolution: "Never to sell a Piano for more than its legitimate worth. Never to offer a Piano too low for the buyer s safety' The Wellington Piano $375 to $400 Here is a Piano that meets every requirement of quality, price, beauty and economy. It satisfies the critical musician in the quality of its tone and the fluency of its action, and satisfies, too, the exacting housewife in the simple elegance of its design and finish.

It is a compromise measure, passed by the. two dominant political parties in this state. It seeks to remedy many of the objections to the primary system. Objection to the primary has been growing for some years. Many men who would have taken a nomination from a state convention declined to make the financial sacrifice lor a cam paign under the primary. The cost to the state was very heavy. It was pro portionately heavy to the candidates seeking nomination. They found be cause of the geographical conditions of the state it was difficult to mahe a campaign without heavy cost. Many candidates who had the time and money spent both liberally and successfully. They were usually nominated. These conditions soon aroused criticism. Primary Principle Retained, The new law adopts the primary principle as to the .nomination of coun ty and legislative delegates, and de ciding representation in the state con ventions. They are all nominated by direct vote in their respective counties just as has been the case under the primary law in the past. Those aspir ing to office In counties must do one of three things; they must secure the approval of the county chairman, or. failing in that, approval of the county committee. If they can get neither, they may secure the indorsement of five members of their own party who are willing to vouch that thy have been affiliated with the party for two years previous. The delegates making up the re spective county conventions which will in turn elect delegates to the state con ventions, will be elected by all of those affiliated with their party at. the pri mary election. There will be one dele gate elected from each precinct. As many as want to - run for the posi tion of delegate may do so. The one receiving the highest number of votes will be declared elected. The county conventions will eleict the delegates to the state conventions. ' These are to be held by all of the political parties the first Tuesday In August. The coun ty central committee will provide its own rule regulating the county conven tions. The state committee will lay down the rules governing the state conventions. their contention that the levy was illegal, finally have lost by the passage by both houses of the legislature of the bill legalizing the -levy.
