Will Taft, in the face of the stinging criticisms that have al ready been launched at the administration in this matter, ap point a weak-kneed, subsidized automaton who will do the food dopers' bidding? Or will it be a man of backbone and grit? There is much favorable talk concerning H. E. Barnard, state food commissioner of Indiana, an uncompromising enemy of the drugged food interests, as an ideal successor to Wiley. The urgent question is will Taft act now instead of letting the matter hang fire until after the convention? And will he clear himself of criticism by appointing a man of Barnard's integrity and strength of purpose? Politicians who know say that the chances of President Taft for renomination will be seriously affected by his action in this matter. People are still talking of the action of the master of chan cery in the Indiana benzoate of soda case, which was a direct slap at Wilson, McCabe and the anti-Wiley element. Although the administration went so far as to provide wit nesses to testify in favor of the use of benzoate of soda in foods, and attempted to throttle Wiley thus coming to the rescue of the manufacturers, who were seeking a sale of benzoated foods in Indiana the district courts of the United States were in voked, and Wiley was made a witness. The finding of the master in chancery upheld the state's right to prohibit the sale of drugged foods; affirmed that the non-injurious quality of the drug benzoate of soda was far from proved; and particularized on the filthy methods and rotten ma terials that could be covered up by the use of this pernicious coal tar drug. When it comes to food, they are not going to have "theirs" with benzoate of soda in Indi ana, and the other states are be ginning to question why should there be need for this special ef fort to gain simple health protection, when there is supposed to be a national food law for that purpose. The question is up to Wilson and McCabe. It is also up to Taft! IMPORTING IMPROVED DAIRY CATTLE. The University of Idaho will solve the dairy question for the farmers of the state if proper support is given a plan recently authorized by the board of regents. Funds were recently made available by Dr. W. L. Carlyle and Professor Ellington to visit the dairy sections of the Middle West and purchase three carloads of high bred dairy cattle of established records and these cattle will be brought to Moscow and sold at public auction. A letter received from Dr. Carlyle stated he and Professor El lington will depart for the Middle West within a short time and the cattle would be collected and brought to Moscow the latter part of May. It is expected that the auction sale will be conducted about June 15. Suggestion is made by Dr.Carlyle that if the plan is given proper support by the farmers, other shipments will be made and the sales held at various points in Idaho, in order that the farmers may be saved from the local freight charges in getting the cows home. A movement was started several months ago by the Lewiston Commercial Club looking to the organization of just such a plan as has been launched by the university, and at the present time a special committee is engaged in securing data to show the cost of placing the valuable dairy cattle on the Idaho farms. Statement is made by Dr. Carlyle that full information as to breeding, amount of butter fat production and cost will be made public as soon as the dairy cows are landed in Moscow, and the sale will be given wide publicity in all sections of North Idaho.

A HITCH III THE CONTRACT FOR HEATING In an attempt to raise their bid for Installing heating systems In the two new school houses now under con struction In this city to the extent of $200, the heating firm of Burkhart & Weaverson, of Portland, met with considerable opposition by the school board, and those who submitted bids for the same work. The board turned their proposition down flatly and no tified them by night letter by wire that If they would Install a five-horse power motor and 110-Inch fan that they would be awarded the contract at the price of the original bid, 3785. The work on the new biuldings has progressed so rapidly that some of the roughing In for the heating must be done soon, and on that account the above contracting firm was notifed to appear Tuesday night to sign the con tract. If the bidders do not accept the terms given by the board It will become necessary to award the con tract to the next lowest bidder, The Pacific Engineering Co., of which P. A. Williams Is the representative. X-RAYS AND SMILES.
