Bocrotiiry I.. O. Monroe, of tho latfar
body, formally launched tho campaign
for tho creation of anew commonwealth

wna adopted unanimously, consists of a
review of conditions tlutt brought about
what It terms Uio unnatural arrange
ment of boundaries now existing in tho

tho northern boundary of the atato of
Idaho, and tho 120th degree of longl
tudo, or the eastern boundary of the

of tho a taUj of Idaho, and that the east

boundary of Uio state of Washington,
thereby leaving a new stato to be here
after named and from which a central
city should bo selected as tho capital,
comprising tho panliandle of Idaho,
Northeastern Oregon and Eastern
The report goes on to say:
"Tills proposition should not come
from any ono town or locality, but
should bo brought from all Uie principal
towns north of tho said -15th degree of
