IDAHO FOREST RESERVE
Washington, D. C, May 16. Aa the
result of a conference at the White House,
President Roosevelt this week will issuea j
proclamation setting aside 10,000,000
acres of land in the Idaho forest reserve.
The matter .was taken up with the presi
dent today by Senator Dubois of Idaho
and Gifloid Puichot, chief orester of the
department of agriculture. '
The proposed withdrawal ol land in
question , has been' the subject o'f an ani
mated partisan controversy in Idaho for
several months and has brought about
strained relations of the - (wo Senators of
that state. Senator Heyburn contended
that the withdrawal of such a large area
would retard development of the state and
He declared further that it would entail a
hatdship on many citizens because the
proposed reserve embraced rnany small
Dubois took issue with his colleague
afdjieplied,that theentimenj of the slate
was in favor of the reserve, and that a
single town was a&cted. I'inchot took
the Dubois pde. "
The new reserves to be cieated are:
Henry's lake, 750,000 acres; Sawtooth,
2,000,000 acres; Payette, 1,400,000 acres;
Squaw creek, 285,000 acres; Cassia 325
000 acres; addition to Yellowstone 175,
000 acres; addition to Bitter Root
1,300,000 acres.. The Shoshone reserve
will be created later.

.audit claims foe the maintenance of

Institutions at Salem, and will issue
certificates of allowance for those
claims he approves. " -
Secretary of - BtaW r Dunbar has al
ready indicated his Inteutlonnot to
isvue certificates of allowance upon
claims or the .maintenance of Normal
Schools., He bas taken tbls; position
because the NjrmaLSchoolabave never
been regarded as a btate Institutions in
the same senso the Asylum, PenI
tentiary, etc., are state Institution, be
cause tbelr claims were not audited In
1897, wlieri no appropriations were
available, and because tbe State Board
of Levy made no estimate for Normal
Schools lu making tbe annual esti
mates of state expenses In January.
Secretary Dunbar will follow precedent
until the judicial deparment directs
bira to do otherwise.
It is understood that local banks and
business men have arranged to furnish
funds for tlio Monmouth, Asbland and
Weston Normals, and perhaps a similar
arrangement may be in ado at Drain.
An effort will first be made to establish
the right of these Institutions to have
tbeir claims audited and a friendly
Biilt will be brought to compel tbe
Secretary of Btate to issue certificate
of allowance. If this should be de
cided against the normals, tbe local
capitalists will furnish funds and de
