HIT HARD BY THE WAR Washington, Nov 16.—The Repub I | 1 harder by the war than the newspa- ( per business, particularly In the smaller-cities and country towns. | The large metropolitan papers have 1 probably suffered least. During 1917 more than 1200 publications went ; out Of business. After making al lowance for new papers started, it, appears that there was a net loss of 62 dailies and 569 weeklies. The mortality statistics for 1918 llcan Publicity Association, through its President. Hon. Jonathan Bourne,! Jr., today gave out the following ! Washington statement from its headquarters: , "No other business has been hit i , will probably show as great a OB s. ; for the shortage of paper, the increas- j ing cost of all kinds of supplies, and ! the higher wages, together with the ' ! heavy call upon newspaper men for military service, have been more se vere this year than last. And one of the serious features of the situation is that Ute people 1 of the country probably do not realize | that the most valuable portion of the press has sustained the greatest loss. Under popluar government the coun try press, including not only country weeklies, but the smaller dallies, is the real voice of the people. Editors of large metropolitan papers do not have and cannot have the close touch with the people that iB a necessary incident of the life of the country editor. Just as Washington, D. C., is the poorest place in the coun try to get a line on the political thought of the nation, so the big city newspaper office is the poorest place j to get a correct picture of national 1 thought, either political or other wise. The people of the # United States should realize this, and should see to It that whatever else happens the country press shall be maintain ed. "Freedom of speech and of the press is the first essential of a Re publican form of government, for the representatives of the people cannot know the thoughts and aspirations and desires of their constituents un lesB voiced through the mediumship of the local press to which they have access either directly through Ae ed i j itor's interpretation of the views of. his community. "The country press, including the j smaller dailies, represents the pro-1 ducing element of our national life, j The large metropolitan press repre- j sents the commercial factors. Just | as production is the first essential bf a permanent prosperity, so the main tenance of that portion of the press that speaks for the producers is | the most important. "The metropolitan press has itsj place in our national life and nobody wishes it ill. The fact remains, how ever, that the vital interests of the nations are most promptly nnd most clearly represented and the thought I of the people nfost freely and most 1 courageously voiced by the country j The people of the country I : press. may not see it now, but they will some day realize that the large preponder- j ance of suspensions among the week ly publications is a menace to nation- : al welfare." ONLY A FEW LEAGUERS IN THE LEGISLATIVE The Non-partisan league has com paratively few of its members in the j new legislature, a canvass of the j names of members-elect show. The league Indorsed Republicans and Democrats in some counties while in others they succeeded in having league candidates nominated. In j most Instances the latter failed of election. There seems to be but ; eight Indorsed league members In j the house and four in the seuate. Just prior to the election league I headquarters published a list of men nominated to the legislature having Its indorsement. Introducing this list the league said: "Here is a list of the men indorsed by the Non-parti san league, farmers and organized labor, for the state legislature, house and senate in southern Idaho. These are the men who will enact Into law the league's economic program." The league indorsed candldatese! elected to the house of represents- i tives from southern Idaho counties follow: Republican—J. W. Haws, Oneida; R. E. Sutcliffe, Butte. Democratic—L. A.

When we sent our husky fight ing men across the briny sea we sent them froth to stick it out until the world was free; we squirted serums into them and we loaded them with guns, then they hiked away to hunt Old Bill and kill off all his sons; they didn't stop to chew the rag, they didn't even pause until they caught the Vandal Beast and clipped off all his claws. We told our boys we'd back them up and never would forget our snortin' tootin' soldier men be yond the ocean wet; we told them we would stay at home and each would do his bit and while they needed grub or guns not one of us would quit; we told them we would furnish them whatever they should need and never would our patriotism dry up and go to seed; we told them we would gladly buy all the War Stamps Une would sell while they were röunding Hienies up and herding them to hell—Oh, we promised all our soldier lads that we hoped to die and swore an oath and bravely crossed our heart!

EXPERT FOR PUBLIC LANDS CHAIRMAN. Washington, Nov. 16.—Although the best of the public lands have passed into private ownership under ( the various homestead and mining i laws, yet there is still a large area of land left In the public domain. To i shape public land legislation for the | future will be even more difficult than in the past, for the very reason j that unappropriated land is less in ; quantity and less desirable in char-j acter. To encourage men to settle up- ; on and utilize the remaining vacant ) areas will be no small task. It is for tunate for the country, therefore, and particularly for the west, that Repre sentative Nicholas J. Sinnott of Or egon will become chairman of the Public Lands Committee of the I House when the Republicans resume control next March. Sinnott has been a resident of the Columbia Rlv- : er Basin since the days when its most t numerous inhabitants were Indians. All his life he has been in close touch : with the pioneers—the settlers who ; conquered the wilderness. As an at- ; torney he became an expert in public j land law.*As the spokesman of home- i steaders he became familiar with all j their difficulties and privations. His ; address on the Water Power Bill is said to be the best and most thorough discussion of water right law, from the standpoint of Federal jurisdiction ever presented anywhere. His loyal ! training combined with his personal knowledge of the homesteader's dif ficulties, will enable him to render peculiarly valuable service as chair man of the Public Lands Committee.

BEAR RIVER VALLEY LAND & ABSTRACT CO. RETURNING SOLDIERS WILL WANT TO KNOW MANY THINGS - The soldier who has served in France will have many questions to ask upon his return. He will study how the war has been conducted. He will have an idea of those who have helped and those who have hindered. He will appreciate the great import ance of production and he will want to know how it has been hindered and by whom. No question in his mind can be answered by plati tudes. He will exact facts and he will Inevitably contrast, modestly of course, his own heroic service at a stipend of $33 a month with the work of those who remained at home, either to Becure enormous profits or to make enormous wages. He will be a questioning mind, and he will be one of millions thinking along the same lines. The present petty classes and cliques which are dominating politics will only Interest him to the exteut of determining whteher they served faithfully or were slackers and prof iteers. He will apply the same test to the politicians and statesmen. The soldier may be the supreme factor in our political, and therefore in our economic and financial poli cies for many years to come. He will be an independent thinker with a vast fund of knowledge, and as a soldier he! will mark the end of some of our present political methods, and the domination of certain classes to which politicians have heretofore bowed. It will make for healthier conditions in politics.—From Ameri can Industry in War Time. ■ «200,000 WORTH OF CANDY ORDERED FOR CAMP LEWIS That the government recognizes the value of candy In the diet of its I soldiers Is shown by the order for i $200,000 worth of candy, which placed during July for the men at j Camp Lewis. This is among the larg I i est orders for candy ever placed by the government for its soldiers. It Is estimated that it will take three months to fill the order which was placed with two northwestern manufacturers, and that the supply will be sufficient- to last the five ex changes at Camp Lewis for a period of three to four months. This war has done more than was any thing else to demonstrate that candv j possesses immense food value. A sol dier. after a hard day's work, needs candy. His system craves it. Like wise, shipyard workers, loggers, men and women doing all kinds of heavy work, crave candy, bcause it supplies the need for something sweet to sup ply fuel for the body. Growing chil dren require the sugar in candy to supply them with energy. All candy being maunfactured to day is made with the sugar authoriz ed for this purpose by the national •food administration. You can patri otically eat the candy which you now see on sale. If you wish to forego it, you may send it to a soldier. A com parison of the food value of candv with other articles of diet tells an in teresting story. Chocolate creams have a value of 2,092 calories per pound. Compared with this: — ..... 315 calories ._. 881 calories .... 695 calories _1090 calories .1685 calories .1620 calories .1180 calories —1175 calories Many people used to wonder what would be the substitute for liquors to supply heat for the system. They have found that sugar is the real source of body fuel; it supplies the carbohydates which are necessary to every healthful person. Sugar is en joyed most when made up into a food product, mixed with fruit, nuts, etc., all of which are high in food value. We recognize sugar as a food pro duct, milk as food product, cocoa as a food product, nuts, fruits and rai sins as food products. These are the chief ingrdients of candy. Logically, then, the combination of all these products is bound to be a wholesome uutrlous food. Whole milk. Cream.. Whole eggs.... Beefsteak_ Corn.. Rice. White bread Corn bread.
