In the matter of appropriations the
aolons went fir beyond records of pre

appropriations from the treasury wilt

un close to IJ.000.000. Governor Davis
will ndiiu some of these appropria
tiona by veto, but the majority of them
will stand. In a number of appropria
tion issues, the legislature literally
"passed the buck" to the governor
The lecislature found Itself confront
d with unusual conditions which had
to be overcome, and this resulted in
multiplying the appropriations. The
tate had to so on a credit, instead
of a cash, basis to borrow money t
meet outstanding obligations instead
of paying from the treasury's coffers
This condition was brought about bv
the war.
When the new year opened. Idaho
was short on cash. The 1919 ti.Ves
from counties will not be available for-
from six to eight months. Added to
this condition was the period of re
construction requiring liberal treat
ment of building issues, including high
ways and pubiic buildings, so that
work could be furnished to as mmy
as possible. The session of the legisla
ture cost approximately J80.000. For
the state institutions over 1,000.000
was necessary, while to maintain the
state government $1.S52.$U0 must be
raised. The ambitious road construc
tion programme called for close to J2.
000.000, with no funds in sight to use.
Mate to Borrow Money.
The legislature met these problems
ty authorising the state to borrow 13,
OiiO.OOO on treasury certificates to meet
the expenses of the state government;
the issuance of J 1.800.000 in treasury
certificates to meet the expense of road
construction work. These certificates
will be redeemed in the first Instance
by the levy of an ad valorem tax. and
in the second instance by passage of a
2-mill tax levy on the total assessed
aluation of the state for state high
way construction purposes. When the
treasury certificates are redeemed the
slate will again be back on a cash
Outside of necessary funds needed
for the support of the state govern
ment comparatively few direct appro
priations were made. They amount to
bout liiiO.OUO. The more important of
these appropriations are the following:
lUi.OOO for the state normal at Lewis
ton, to replace the administration
building and for additional campus;
J.,2.000 for the improvement of the
state's watering resort at the Lava
iiot Springs; 20,00 to investigate the
water resources of the state; $75,000
for the construction of a highway from
Star In Ada county to the Payette
Jakes in Valley county: $119,456 to
meet maintenance charges against the
slate's land in the Uem irrigation dis
trict in Owyhee county; $10,000 for the
construction of a bridge in Boundary
county: $30,000 for improvements along
the Snake river, between Madison and
