The case of Horace Mann first came to publie notice by the publication in the Gooding Leader on Thursday, Sep tember 12, of a series of affidavits from residents of Gooding—affidavits which charged substantially the things which Mann admitted to the Council of Defense in his testimony and confession on Mon day night of this week. At first Mann issued a vehement denial of the charges, the truth of which he now admits. Want Qmck Action. Members of the Gooding County Conn eil of Defense have unanimously adopted a resolution asking tlie department of justice to take proceedings against Mann. As yet no federal action has been taken When Mann was arrested Monday night numerous Socialistic pamphlets were found in his pockets, together with „ „ . . „ . . l. tters from Ray McKaig of the state headquarters of the Non-Partisan league at Boise, and also Mann's official receipt book which lie used as a league organ league organizer here Monday night, after his confession.

Telegraphic information obtained from j Mann's former homes in California and | was Iowa, is to the effect that he is an T. W. \V„ a Socialist of extreme views, and a man of no standing in the community. The complaint against Mann sworn to by Frank Disney, and Rex \ . Wilcox of Wendell, who is running for district judge as a Non-Partisan, appear ed to defend him. Disney left Tuesday for Boise to lay the matter before the Gooding.

Mann's arrest was mnde at the unani request of the members of the mous Council of Defense of Gooding county, after the Non-Partisan worker had been given a hearing before the council, and had made a full confession covering charges which were preferred in affidav its from Gooding citizens. Burden of Confession. The confession of Horace Mann, and his sworn testimony before the council of defense shows that he has said and done the following things: nns repentedlv said that he is against i the war and against all wars.

Lieutenant Southin will speak at the Grange Hall at 3 o'clock Sunday after noon. These addresses are given in the interest of the Fourth Liberty Loan, They will be of unusual interest to all. Don't fail to hear him. ENTERTAIN THE TEACHERS. Superintendent and Mrs. J. E. Wesson delightfully entertained the teachers of the Shoshone schools at their home last Friday evening. Supt. Wesson has start ed out with the evident determination to make the schools a success, and to fur ther that object by cultivating a spirit of unity and good will among the teach ers. THE ACCOUNTING. Portland Oregonian. The Republiacns of the Fourth con gressional district, Washington, have taken the case of William LaFollette in hand and at the primary have set in motion the machinery to retire him to private life. The issue wrecked the political ship of La Fol lette, after four terms in congress. The Democrats of the Fifth Wash of loyalty ington district have chosen to stand by C. C. Dill, representative, with record Qf obstruction to preparedness, opposition to the selective service and negation on the war declaration, all due to a chronic and mistaken pacificm, of which he now pretends to have re pen ted. The Republicans of Wisconsin have probably renominated Governor Phillip for a third term by a slender vote, h "' as active in opposing the draft and vehemently protested against [sending American soldiers to Europe : "in a war that does not concern us." I The Republicans of the First Wis- j consin district, (Racine) have defeated ; for renomination H. A. Cooper, for more than 20 years a member of the house, and long the popular leader of his district. He opposed the war and favored an embargo on the shipment of arms to the allies. John M. Nelson, Republican, of the Third Wisconsin district, (Madison), an ally of La Follette, and an opponent of nearly all the test measures on the j war once accused and indicted with his son for conspiracy to evade the draft (though acquitted) was defeated in the Republican primary by the same can didate that he easily beat two years ago. Nelson was a member of the past six congresses. W. J. Cory, of the Fourth district, (Milwaukee), an anti-prohibitionist in ja wet district, was defeated by the Re publicans on his anti-war record by a candidate who made a "pro-war" cam palgn. H. Stafford, of the Fifth district. (Milwaukee), a member of seven con grpaspp wUh a half _ and . half record in war mPa sures. contrived to get a re nomination from the Republicans, though the aggregate vote of his two opponents, running each on "loyalty" exceeded the Stafford total. The Republicans of Michigan have nominated Truman H. Newberry, a dis tinguished citizen, a naval officer in the war, once secretary of the navy, and a millionaire, and have defeated Henry Ford, philanthropist, paciflct and mul ti-millionaire. The Democrats of Michigan, at their primary, have nominated for the sen ate, Henry Ford, who is registered as a Republican. The national administra tion was supposed to be behind him. The Republicans of Nebraska have nominated for re-election George W. Norris one of the "little group of wilful men." The Democrats of Mississippi have defeated for renomination the sensa tional and troublesome Jas. K. Vard- man, also "one of the little group of The Democrats of Alabama have re George denounced by President Wilson as an "opponent of the administration." He voted against practically all war measures,- except the declaration of war with Germany. Here and there, in either great par'y, a candldate not 100 per cent American m America's greatest cause, is able to e8Cap * t he consequents of nis acts in congress. But on the whole it is obvi ous that no candidate can escape the loyalty test in either party, or survive, i' he is not esteemed all right all the Ume ^ ^ Democratg of the Fifth wilful men." nominated at their primary Huddleston, who was district, Washington, have made the strange blunder of renominating C.

The error of the Dill electorate will un doubtedly be corrected in November, when his opponent, an upstanding Am erican, will be elected. If the Democrats throughout the na tion repeat the Dill blunder by the nomination of obnoxious candidates, they will take the surest possible way to guarantee a Republican house in the sixty-sixth congress. T0 THE LINCOLN COUNTY PRESS, - The following letter from the adjutant general's office will answer many ques tions: ! Mr. J. W. Lundin, Clerk, Lora 1 Board, Shoshone, Idaho. Dear Sir: There is a vast amount of confusion in regard to the Students' Army Training j corps, and we have wired the provost marshal general requesting him to ad vise us as to the proper procedure in this matter. However. I have no hesi tancy in holding that local boards can not transfer men prior to the filing of tlieir questionaires. In my judgment it is not contemplated that they should lie transferred, but that upon the receipt by a local board of transfer of the competent order from the ' provost marshal general such local board 1 " of transfer will immediately request the local hoard of origin to forward the nee essary induction papers. T do not be lieve that registrants desiring to enter ^ * this branch of the service should attempt to secure a transfer but should enroll , at some accredited school and secure their competent order from the provost r ... marshal general and the transfer will , then take care of itself. , , . I do not think that an Idaho repis [the government's offer as he is vunnosed trant is compelled to attend the Idaho university in order to take advantage of to be in school at the time of bis in jduetion and to be inducted by the load ... aboard having jurisdiction of the area in which the school is located.

Lincoln County Chapter has been ask ed to contribute to a linen shower for the American hospitals in France.

The valve to the gas tank was immediately closed by the operator and the Pyrene squirt gun turned on the fire. The first squirt put the fire out and stopped what seem ed like a serious conflagration. The little Pyrene squirt gun did it. GRANGE HALL MEETING Sunday afternoon at three o'clock Lieutenant Southin, a returned Cana dian soldier, will speak at the Grange Hall. He will bring you a messege di rect from the trenches. Dont fail to hear him A Creditable Entertainment. Some of the boys and girls of the younger set gave an entertainment last Tuesday night at the K. P. hall for the benefit of the Junior Red Cross. The evening netted some $4.9 for the Red Cross and $9 for the Armenian relief fund. As an amateur entertainment this one was among the most creditable ever put on in Shoshone. The parts were well taken and well executed. It was well worth the price of admission and all who took part in it are entitled to spe icial commendation for their enterpris? and skill and taient. Their show left a good taste in the mouth of every one and everyone present hope the children will not let this be their last one. Rural Carriers Examination.

Fifty children were examined and out of this number only eighteen came up to the average or above, according to the Anthropometric table compiled for the American Medical association.
