IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO
Boise, Idaho.—Both houses of the
Idaho legislature passed a bill to pre
vent the waters of north Idaho lakes
and rivers being appropriated for irri
gation or power uses outside the state.
It defeats development of the Colum
bia basin project in Washington if
undertaken at the expense of Idaho.
Undkr present laws there is nothing
to prevent appropriation and impound
ing of Idaho waters by outside inter
ests, and it was made plain at a con
ference of state officials of northwest
states at Spokane recently that both
irrigation and power interests of
Washington intended to take steps to
ward storage of water in various
lakes snd streams of north Idaho for
i their benefit. The waters affected are
lakes Pend Oreille and Coeur d'Alene,
and St. Joe, Clarks Fork, Pend Oreille
and Spokane rivers.

Only one republican, Johnson. Cali-

would have required a two-thirds ma
jority. Eight democrats, including
Senator Swanson, Virginia, ranking
minority member of the naval com
mittee, and one farmer-labor, Ship-
stead, voted against it.

COLUMBIA TIRE CORPORATION, PORTLAND, OREGON
TO VOLSTEAD ACT
Washington. D. C.—Declaring diver
sion of aleohol the chief problem of
prohibition enforcement, James J.
Britt, counsel for the prohibition en
forcement unit, has recommended to
the senate investigation committee two
amendments to the Volstead act de
signed to remedy the situation.
One amendment would limit denat
uration plants to alcohol distilleries
and to distillery premises and the oth
er would give the enforcement agency
complete supervision of the denatured
alcohol until it goes to the consumer.
Roy A. Haynes, field marshal of en
forcement since early in the Harding
administration, seems likely to be re
placed by someone who heretofore has
viewed the government's prohibition
activities from a distance and who will
bring to the service enforcement opin
ions of his own.
Meantime jt has been revealed at
the White House in the most authori
tative manner that President Coolidge
would like to see federal agents give
their major attention to bootlegger*
and not to hip-pocket flasks and that
he does not favor a bill reported by
the house judiciary committee making
it mandatory for courts to impose jail
sentences on those convicted of break
ing the Volstead act.
