Number 31 SOUTHERN IDAHO DEMOCRAT Established 1914 THE SHOSHONE JOURNAL Established 1882 Volume 37 SHOSHONE, IDAHO, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4, 1918. FLAG ETIQUETTE. By William Mather Lewis. The United States military regula tions and other rulings given well de fined statements as to the respect to be shown the flag. The most Import ant of these follow. When the colors are passing, the spectator, if a man should halt if walk ing, arise and uncover if sitting, hold ing the head-dress opposite the left shoulder with the right hand; if bare headed, he should salute with the right hand. A woman should stand at at tention as the flag passes by. When the flag flies from a stationary flag-staff it is not ordinarily saluted with the hand. Used in decoration, the flag should not be festooned or draped, but hung flat. If the flag is hung with the stripes horizontal, the Union should be in the upper left corner. If hung per pendicularly, the Union should be in the upper right hand corner. When the flag is carried in parade, or when crossed with other flags, the Stars and Stripes should always be at the right. The law specifically forbids the use of and representation of the flag in any manner in connection with merchan dise for sale. The flag should be raised at sunrise and lowered at sunset. It should not be displayed on stormy days or, except when under fire of the enemy, left out over night. Although there is no au thoritative ruling which compels civ ilians to lower the flag at sundown, good taste should impel them to follow the traditions of the Army and Navy In this sundown ceremonial. Primarily the flag is raised to be seen, and sec ondarily, the flag is something to be guarded, treasured; and so tradition holds that it shall not be menaced by the darkness. To leave the flag out at night, unattended, is regarded by some as proof of shiftlessness, or at least of carelessness. On Memorial Day, the flag should he displayed at half-mast from sunrise until noon and at the peak from noon until sunset. It should, on being re tired, never be allowed to touch the ground. When "The Star Spangled Banner" is played or sung, all present should stand, uncover face towards the music, and remain standing, In silence, until the music ceasest Applause at the conclusion of the "The Star Spangled Banner" Is out ot place. Worn-out and useless flags should be destroyed, preferably by burning. A flag torn or frayed by the wind and weather should not again be halst ed until it has been repaired. This is a regulation of both the Army and Navy and should be folowed by all civ ilians. CAR SHORTAGE APPEAL WIRED SENATOR BORAH Frank R. Gooding Point* Out Situation and Asks for Government Help. wired to Senator Borah on Monday in the mat ter of car shortage for wheat ship ments. The message explains Itself. It is as follows: Hon. W. E. Borah, U. S. Senate, Washington, D. C. I regret to advise you that a very serious condition exists in Idaho owing to the shortage of railroad cars and the embargo that is on wheat. In the face of this discouragement, however, Idaho will go over the top in this bond issue in a short time. Those who understand the situation are not finding fault with the railroads, as we know they are straining every nerve and every man in their employ is loyal and giving his best service. Idaho has a tremendous wheat crop this year. With the exception of fruit, the state is reaping a bountiful har- j vest. Will you be kind enough to take this matter up with Idaho's delega tion in congress and see if more liberal rules and regulations cannot be given to the federal reserve banks doing bus iness in Idaho? If it is possible arrangements should be made where the government can advance 75 per cent of the value of the wheat to the farmer until such time as Idaho's crops can be moved. If this embargo lasts long or there is a con tinued shortage of cars, a very serious condition should be done to meet what threat ens to be a most serious situation in Idaho. will follow. Something (Signed) F. R. Gooding. YOUR NET INCOME. C. S. Bixler, of Heyburn, special rep resentative of the U. S. internal rev enue department was a Shoshone vis itor Wednesday, giving out information as to the operations of the new In come tax law. If you own a farm, or any other business worth, say five thousand dollars in 1913 and you sell it today for eight thousand dollars, you must pay income tax on the three thousand dollars. In other words, tak ing all property values on the basis of 1913 "net income" is figured as the dif ference in value now and then. If on your $5,000 farm you have put $3,000 worth of improvements since 1913 and sell today for $8,000, there is no net income, since the $8,000 represents in vestment. "God grants liberty only to those who love it, and are always ready ti guard and defend it."—Webster. SWATTING THE KAISER. Harry L. Day, brother of Jerome Day. State Chairman of the Demo cratic party, in a recent interview, pub lished in the Capital News, asks the following question: But who is opposing the war by rais ing false issues, stirring up strife, and creating unnecessary friction in this time of terrible emergency? Nobody but the Non-Partisan leaders, support ed as theÿ are by all the pro-Germans, all the I. W. W.'s all the Socialists and all the anarchists comprising the dis loyal element of the state. I am aware that not all the mem bership of the league is disloyal; far from it.- But I am also aware, as :s every intelligent man, woman or child in the state, that ail the disloyal ele ment in Idaho and elsewhere is for it. Is not this fact enough for the loyal people who have been misled, by de ceit and sophistry, to espouse it? Mr. Day repeats in almost the exact words, a statement made many times by the Journal. If you are a loyal citizen, THINK IT OVER before elec tion day. ORGANIZE LOYAL LEAGUE. The frmers of Gooding county have started a move which should be copied in every-county in Idaho. The follow ing pledge and preamble used by them is sufficient explanation: We, the undersigned farmers of Gooding county, being ourselves 100% loyal Americans, believing that many of our friends and neighbors have been hisled by unscrupulous organizers, who are willing to create national dis organization and class exchange for political advantage, and having satisfied ourselves that a ma jority of the members of the Non-Par tisan league are honest and patriotic: Therefore, for the purpose of proving to the public, the state and national governments, farmers repudiate the methods practices of the Non-Partisan league, and of giving our support to the sail ors on the seas and our boys in the trenches in this hour of our nation's peril, do hereby bind ourselves, each to the other, that we will do our ut most to stamp out the insidious prop aganda represented by Townley and Townleyism, and to free our state from the menace of disunion adroitly pro moted by the founders of the Non-Par tisan league, and for such purpose do hereby constitute ourselves the Good ing County 100% American Club. dissension in that a large body of and LIBERTY LOAN HONORS.

RED CROSS NOTES. The ladies of the supply committee have finished up their work, and are waiting for a new allotment. Thursday Mrs. W. H. Stevens turn ed over to J. E. Badley the contents of the Red Cross can at the Baugh theatre, the contributions amounting to $9.45. A special meeting of the executive committee was called Thursday after noon at the Public Library to meet Mrs. Hunter, of Seattle who was in Shoshone in the interest of the Home Service section and the enrolling of Red Cross nurses. Mrs. Hunter explained many details with regard to the Home Service work, and stated that the ser vice is short 9,009 trained nurses. This means that graduate nurses must be taken for work overseas, and practi cal experienced nurses must train for home service. WAR RELICS. Tuesday, Oct. 15, there will be two flat cars and a box car of German tro phies on exhibition at the depot from 9 to 10 a. m. An official will accom pany this exibit and make the neces sary explanations during the hour the exhibit remains In Shoshone. AN ORGANIZER'S CONFESSION "I believe the draft law to be un constitutional. "I believe Haywood is a victim of a put up job by the government. 'T believe that the Bolshevik! gov ernment of Russia to be the highest type of democracy in the world and hope to see a similar democracy in this country." The above are taken from the con fession of Horace Mann, the Non-Par tisan league organizer for Goodiig county who was arrested last week on a charge of sedition. He was loaded with literature of the rankest kind, carried letters of instruction from Ray McKaig, head of the German propa gandists in Idaho, had his credentials from National League headquarters as an organizer and ww supplied with membership blanks and other neces sary forms. Upon publication of his confession the league took prompt steps to expel him from the organization. He had committed the unpardonable crime of being caught with the goods on him. This confession shows conclusively the quqaliflcations of all league or ganizers and prominent workers, as has been frequqently published in the Journal the past few months. He seems to have First—A good, rotten past; Second—He is not too honest; Third—He is a radical, ranting red card man. These are the qualifications estab lished byTownley for any and all of his workers. Poor little shriveled up Mann is not an exceptional individual among these organizers. Before he went out as an organizer he was schooled by the big thieves above him as to just ex actly what he should say and how he should say it. Every one of the other forty or fifty" organizers in Idaho have been drilled in the same manner. The moment any one of them departs the slightest from the line of talk in which they have been schooled, that moment he loses his job as an organizer. Were the officers to pick up each of the other Idaho organizers by the slack of the pants and nape of the neck and shake him until he confesses he would have to confess to xactly the same things as Mann. Their trails are all slimy with treason and sedition. They are sent out for the express purpose of inoculating the loyal citizens of Idaho with the virus of treason and sedition. The great query in every loyal mind is why are the energies of the officers ex pended to exhaustion on these little petty thieves who filch th $16 from the farmers while the Huns who employ them and instruct them in their petty work are unmolested, months ago the Journal stated that it proposed to keep up the fight on these Non-Partisan leaders until they either purged their order of treason, left the state, or landed in the penitentiary. The burden of the fight has been large ly lifted from the Journal at this time by reason of the political turn events have taken. The late primary elec tion placed the issue squqarely before Idaho voters on state matters you eith er vote the Republican ticket or you Not many vote the pro-Çerman ticket. The Huns are after your votes. A vote for the Non-Partisan ticket is an invitation to the Kaiser to take heart, America is not all against him. Study Club Entertains Teachers.

E. church here Sunday evening in dedicating the Service flag and an entertaining occa sion may be looked for. Rev. James, pastor of the church, makes the chief address and Rev. A. Monroe, a retired Methodist minister, will shed the light of his oratory on the glorious cause, while Thomas Claspill, the choir leader of the church, will delight every one with rare vocal selections. A grand and instructive patriotic meeting is the promise to all who attend. More than thirty of his neighbors gathered at the home of Ben Hart one evening this week and participated in a most enjoyable occasion in* cards and other social merriments as a sort of dedicatory service of Ben's new house. Ben has built a new and tasty house, too pretty to be occupied by a lone bachelor. This Is meant as a gen tle hint to the girls to be looking after Ben a little. To show what sort of man he Is note this: Clark and Bailey were out Tuesday evening selling Liberty bonds. A run of ill luck had made them blue. Then they called on Ben. Did he tell them that he had just been was hardly. He simply gave them a check for a round thousand dollars to help Uncle Sam flay the kaiser, the blues faded away and the boys came home sing ing.
