BOISE. Idaho, July 3. (Special.)
Idaho political leaders and politicians
have just gone through a week of
worry and trouble in an effort to
comply with tho provisions of the
amended election law to place dele
gales to county conventions, candi
dates for county office and the legis
lature, in nomination, and it is put
ting it inildly to say they are thor
oughly disgusted with the act passed
by the last legislature. It seems
certain that one of the main issues in
tho coming state campaign is to be
thf primary election law.
in an uttenint to remedy some of
the defects of that law the last legis
lature repealed it as to the nomina
tion of congressional and state candi
dates, leaving that to a convention.
The result is just what was feared
a. drifting back to the political ma
chine and its domination over party

Senator Borah will within a ehort

address is to bo somewhat of a key-
note on state issues and will prob
ably be delivered in Boise. He will
therein discuss the present law and
point out the defects in it and at the
same time will appeal to electors to
insist on a remedy which will give
back to tho people the greater direct

Democrats "Wait Watchfully."
Tho fight in the state promises to
become intensified now that the
democratic national convention has
been held. There is much speculation
over tho state ticket and especially
the governorship for that reason. In
this county, Ada, the largest in the
state. Governor Davis, who is a candi
date for renomination and State
Treasurer John AV. Eagleson, who ia
running in opposition to him, are
active in attempting to get control
of the county's 35 delegates.
Democrats are "watchfully wait

MR. PAUL NOBLE
I Manager, Liberty Theater
The show business is booming
at this time
and we are glad,
for that means good playe,
and an evening at the play
a good play,
is our favorite indoor sport.
A good play has a heart
and a soul
and means something;
it's not only entertainment,
it teaches a lesson
in a way that counts.
and after the show,
and every day in every year
people use automobiles,
and these automobiles have tires,
many of them are Lee Tires
we think all ought to be
Because the Lee,
like a good show,
has a way that counts
with t discriminating people.
In the first place
Lee Tires are made
of the best rubber we can buy,
and Egyptian long staple cotton;
from this cotton is produced
fabrics of great textile strength.

9-CENT MILK POSSIBLE
War at Grays Harbor Results in
HOQUTAM, Wash., July 3. (Spe
cial.) Milk on Grays Harbor is now
belling for 12 cents a quart, with In
dications of it going down to 9 cents,
as a. result of a milk war declared by
the Grays Harbor Dairymen's asso
ciation against a group of indepen
dent farmers of the Satsop district
who have been operating through tho
bat sop farmers dairy here.
Members of the Dairymen's assocta
tlon say the price of 124 cents a
quart, which has been charged by the
Eatsop Farmers' dairy since it began
operations here a little more than a
month ago. Is below cost of produc

In the third place
there s an extra cushion,
a matter of considerable
importance, between the cords.
These are technical features,
but in plain words
the result of this process
in manufacturing Lee Tires
means more mileage,
And we're all looking for
dividends on the investment;
in other words
Lee Tires give results.
Lee Inner Tubes
are the only tubes
still made in accordance
with government specifications

These are some reasons
why Lee Tires,
like good shows,
grow in popularity
and enjoy long runs
they "mean something."
