Spokane Chamber of Commerce Be

Spokane, Wash., April S. Uy mak
ling public today tlie report of the "new
s'ato" committee and nnnoucning its
! adopt ion by the chamber of commerce,
Secretary L. ti. Monroe, of the latter
body, formally launched the cnmiMiign
for the creation of a new commonwealth
comprising the "Inland Empire," for
which the name "Lincoln lias ihvii
most fieqiiently suggested.
The report of the committee, which
was adopted unanimously, consists of a
review of conditions that brought about
what it tetnis the unnatural arrange
ment of Umndarios now existing in the
Noithwest, advances reasons for the
construction of a new state and suggests
the following Kwndaries should I e ap

the present north line of the state of
Wyoming, extended, be designated as
the northern boundary of the state of
Idaho, and the 120th degree of longi-'

state of California, carried uoith, until
it intersects the 45th degioeof latitude,

of the state of Idaho, and that the east

boundary of the state ol Washington,
thereby leaving a new state to be here

city should be selected as the capital,
comprising the panhandle of Idaho,

The report goes on to say:
"This proposition should not come
from any one town or looalitv, but
should be brought from all the principal
towns north of the said 45th degree of

consent and approbation, then the mat

chamber of commerce send copies of
this report to the various cities inter
ested, placing the matter before the
board of trade, city council, or other
body of like nature, to the end that
stens be taken looking to the necessary
action by congress.
The report points out that the pan
handle of Idaho is cut off from the
south by an impenetrable mountain
barrier, and that the scut h has domi
nated legislation to the exclusion of the
interests of the panhandle; also that a
similar condition exists in Washing

stitute a natural barrier.
It is argued that similar conditions
exist between Fastern and Weston Or
