VOL.36. NO. 14. CALDWELL, IDAHO, FRIDAY, MARCH 28, 1919. WEEKLY; $2.00 PER YEAR. Mil SATS Htm Htm It OK i^eue of Nation» Warriors Have Donned War Paint—Barrages and Skirmishes in all Parts. Toledo O. March 16.—Editor Cald ' The battle of peace still well Trlb "" e The battle of peace well Trlb t "" e eas t am ong our politicians a gas atta a that h The""«* trouble and as a gas attack it ranks well with anything that happened in Europe. fu y "Ll , trouble is that there _doesn t definite battle line, , seem to be any definite battle line, everybody is shooting gas in every direction with thé result that the casualties are heavy. One Wm. Taft started out as the leader of all those who were willing to enforce peace on the world, inci dentally reflecting somewhat on the Democratic party whose peace policy had thrown us into the biggest war he world had ever known. After working on the idea for some years or more getting things nicely organized his coherts suddenly woke up one morning to find that the President had stolen all their thunder and gone o Europe with it. The President having been busy carrying on a war had not had tim e to write a consti tution for a League to enforce peace and being somewhat egotistical did not care to use one that was made by some of the home folks, so he bor rowed one that wasmade in England, he being a free trader and having no scruples against bringing"" foreign eoods into competition with those made in America. After spending some time in Europe and becoming rather "fedup" on European ideas, the President brings his foreign made league home and tells the good people of the United States that they will have to put it on even though it does not fit, no alterations can be made. It is the latest style in leagues just fro}n Paris and must be worn just as it is. Meantime Mr. Taft had gotten all hi» volunteers lined, up for a big offen sive. The big guns were all loaded ready to go, a hundred per cent gas barrage was to tw put on to make the show a success when the President re turned. A few days, before the con stitution of the foreign made league had been published and turned out to be a "dud" it would not go off/ During the President's brief visit Mr. Taft tried diligently to make the imported league fit American ideas. The President »aid he knew it would fit although h e had no time to look and beat it back for Europe, leaving Mr. Taft to do his best. After struggling for a brief time to make it go Mr. Taft finally decided the thing needed alteration, although as he said at a famous "Geneva address" that is was not much good but the best that could be done. About this time, seeing a weakness and confusion in the ranks of the league's supporters, our Senator Borah together with hTs colleague Senator Reed of the opposite faith, having a long time been silent, de cided to organize the bolsheviks and throw all their gas bombs over into the trenches of the President and Mr. Taft. And now ther c is an awful mess. The members of the league to en force peace are sore at the President because he tried to steal their thunder. The President is sore at the senators who caught him in a hole. Both are somewhat peeved because Borah and Reed arc taking shots at each of them. Yesterday I had a long talk with one of the prominent members of the league to enforce peace in New York and the above is about the way I got it from him. One good thing, however, is hap pening France and England are taking advantage of the opportunity to make peace with Germany before matters get any worse. I only fear that we vvill wake up pretty soon and find out that w« didn't have much »ay about the peace terms or much influence. Even the fourteen points *eem to have been thrown in the waste basket. No doubt England. France, Italy and Japan will be wise enough not to laugh till it is all over. Have just heard the Caldwell boys are home. I wish T could h^ve been there to give them a glad hand. Sincerely, B. M. HOLT. Mo *on Picture Newa. Such a perfect blending of comedy »nn p. i' ioh ; such ah ability to reach the most deeply buried heart-strings on one hand, and get all the joys of life mil of you in one continuous roar of laughter on the other, I have never witnessed.

WORK Kill NOT BE INTERRUPTED lending Restraining Order Will Cause No Delay—Only Sidehill Effected—Work Elsewhere. The directors of the Black Canyon Irrigation District had taken no action as we went to press in respect of the bonds in the sum a* S10,000.00 which Judge Dietrich has required. They hav e four days in which to put up the bond if they so desire.

IHM WORKS BOOK HI (RSI 150 Men Employed and 75 Teams— Daily Payroll Now Runs to About $600.00. The work of building the irrigation works for the Black Canyon irrigation project is going ahead rapidly. Along Canyon Hill men and teams are strung along for two miles or more. This wo-rk is being done under the personal supervision of Engineer Hogue, i man who has been with the Réclama tion Service for many years. The Canyon Hill sidehill is a diffi cult and expensive piece of construc tion work. The canal all along the sidehill will be cement lined. The rigation ditch will be 12 feet on the bottom so it can be seen that this is quite a piece of construction work. Engineer Hogue says that the plans of the Black Canyon work all through call for some of the best and most substantial work done by the Reclama tion system anywhere. Daily Payroll $550.00. Wednesday 150 men and 75 teams were at work on the job. The daily payroll was then over $550.00. Ad ditional men are being put to work as fast as they apply.

A meeting will be held Saturday evening next at the Caldwell Com mercial club rooms for the purpose of discussing plans for the organization of an association to be known as the Canyon County Veterans of the World War. Organization of similar bodies are being perfected throughout the nation. The local organization will undoubtedly be a subordinate member of a national organization when or ganized and will co-operate with that body. The veterans of the war are already exerting a great influence and when organized will exert a much greater influence upon matters in which *hev are interested. .The welfare of the members and the interest of the entire nation will be the purposes of the organization. Matters Now Up. Some of the more urgent matters now demanding consideration at the hands of the war veterans are tinem piovment, settlement of public lands, claims of soldiers against the govern ment, and matters of similar purport and purpose. The call for the meeting to be held in Caldwell Saturday evening says: "The soldier feels that he has a right to be heard in these matters, and that he can be heard effectively only through the medium of organized effort. Every soldier in Canyon coun ty who can possibly get away for this meeting is earnestly requested to be pres.ent." Judge Isaac F. Smith who has been seriously sick at his home at Weiser for some time was taken to a Boise hospital Monday morning. He stood the trip well but it is feared that Judge Smith will never recover from his present malady.
