at Reduced Prices The year just closed has been one the like of which this na tion never before experienced. The war brought on unusual con ditions in every line of business. Just as the war clouds were beginning to break and everybody was looking forward to Merry and Prosperous Yuletide, the epidemic of influenza swept over the country and checked business from one end of the land * to the other. m The result is that merchants generally now And their shelves overstocked with winter merchandise, much of which will be out of date next season. There is yet two months of win ter and people are actually in need of Heavy Wearing apparel. In order to reduce our unusually heavy stock at this season of the year, we are offering Men's Suits, Overcoats, Underwear, Ladies' Coats and Dresses, in fact everything in winter mer-, » 0 chandise at prices much lower than you would expect to buy, them. Don't hesitate, but come and purchase the goods you* need at GREATLY REDUCED PRICES. v, ! t MOSE LEWIS DEPARTMENT STORE The home of Hart Schaffner A Marx clothes ARE WAR EMERGENCY METHODS TO CONTINUE? Washington, D. Q,, Dec. 30.—The Unity of purpose that inspired labor and capital In war tlma constituted one of the finest exhibitions of loyal ty that has ever been born of Democ racy. Now that the war 1*. all over but the shouting complicated ques tions are arising out of the Insistence by various Interests that conditions be recognized as permanent whiph were clearly adopted to meet war emergencies. The people of the coun try expect that prices will fall, but It is hardly a tribute to human nature to observe that most producers want the reductions to descend on some other thati themselves. In these col umns we have considered that affairs of the munition manufacturers, the steel Interests, public utilities, ship ping, etc., and so we will turn a leaf In the story and take into account the problem of labor considered in con nection with the policies adopted by the Government. Under date of January 18, 191», the Director General of Railroads ap pointed a Railway Wage Commission, and acting upon their recommenda tlon the recognition of the baklo eight hour day followed, and a gen eral advance of wages was approved, amounting in stftne cases to 43 per cent, and this Increase was made ret rotractive to January 1, 1918. By further orders the wages of all per sons employed in the service under the Railroad Administration were ad vanced. Mr. McAdoo, in promulgat ing his order, declared that farther steps would be employed In order to do "practical Justice to the 2,000,000 railroad employes of the country." To this he added the "earnest hope that railroad officials and railroad employes will realize that their rela tions under Federal control are not baaejl upon the old conditions of pri vate management." The Federal Trade Commission es timates that 20,000,000 people be came engaged in war work, cally all of them, outside railroad, express and wire employment are now shifting for themselves; read justing their own affairs. They have returned to what Mr. McAdoo condemns as "the old conditions of private management." But It will be readily recognized that the broth erhoods engaged In railroad employ ment have fastened their war emer gency methods very firmly upon the railroads in peace times, and that wholly through the intervention of the government In their behalf. Even with the dissolving war clouds there is no let-up on the pres sure being brought upon Washington to recognize labor in organised groups wherever the Interests of en , terprlses or Industries can be made to appear as being connected with the conduct of public business. Thus it appears that railway employes, tel egraph, -telephone and express em « Practl ployes have already acquired the hab it of making a bee-line for Uncle Sam to settle all of their wage con troversies. This same condition exist ed with reference to all of the differ ent line of employment connected with war work up to the time of the cessation of hostilities. Apparently the Institutions that have coupled up with the Government expect the fed eral machinery to keep thoir salaries at the top noteh no matter what hap pens to the rest of t»at grand class of citizens who call themselves "work ers."

Even the value of | the silver, which increased in price during the year, was less by more than »600,000. Many of the-mines, particularly the smaller ones," were handicapped on account of the scar city of labor, and even the larger mines were at a great expenae on ac count of the increase in cost of freight, treatment, and supplies. The mine production of gold in Ida ho Increased from »804,209 In 1917 to about »867,000 in 1918. Th^most Important gold production came from the Sherman and Corpora^ property, in Idaho county. Close to this was the output of the Gold Hill and Idwa mines, in Boise county. A considera ble output of gold has Us source In the copper ore from Mackay, in Cus ter county. Although the Boston and Idaho dredge at Idaho City was op erated for a time during the year, the total gold from dredging opera tions was considerably decreased. The plant of the Kirtley Creek Co., in Lemhi county, made only a small production previous to being dis mantled, and the dredge at Pteree had only a slight output. The mine output of silver de creased from 12,029,338 ounces in 1917 to about 9,596,000 ounces In 1918, an unusual decline of nearly 20 per cent, and the value decreased from »9,912,175 to about »9,236, 00 «. \ The mine output of lead, which is | the most abundant metal In Idaho, ! decreased from 393,559,621 pounds in 1917 to about 300,274.000 in 1918. The average price was some what lower, and the value of the out put decreased from »33.846.119 to t<>* ten am Ï.Z.760.00«. You often hear It said that a girl ia "throwing herself away" on some man, but never that a man is throw . . . . , . _ ing himself away on a girl by marry ing her; yet the chances ^re about fifty-fifty. The mine output of copper de creased from 7,827,674 pounds in 1917 to about »1,286,000. The Em pire Copper Co., at Mackay, was the largest producer but did not uphold its record of the last tow years. The National Copper mine, near Muilan, produced considerable copper from concentrate, and the Richmond mine, farther east, made shipments of crude ore. There were also smaller shipments from mines near Salmon, in -Lemhi county. The Examiner 1* only »2 n year. They Lie in France Where Lilies Bloom I By PEIWTVAL ALLEN In the New York Time* They lie in France Where lilies bloom; Those flowers pale That guard each tomb Are saintly souls That smiling stand Close by them in That martyred land. And mutely there the long night shadows creep From quiet hills to mourn for them who sleep While o'er them through the dusk go silently The grieving clouds that Blowly drift to sea, And lately round them moaned the Winter wind Whose voice, lamenting, sounds so coldly kind. Yet in their faith those waiting hearts abide The time when turns forever that false tide. In France they lie Where lilies bloom, Those flowers fair For them made room. Not vainly placed The crosses stand Within that brave And stricken land; Their honor lives, Their love endures. Their noble death The right assures For they shall have their hearts' desire They who, unflinching, braved the Are, Across' the fields their eyes at last now see Through clouds and mist the hosts of victory. , IDAHO STANDS HIGH HEALTH STATISTICS According to statistics recently published by the United 8tates public health service, compiled from army records, of the traces of veneral dis ease found In drafted men from each state in the Union, Idaho men show ! od remarkable freedom—Oregon standing first and the Gem state sec ond—Oregon's percentage being 0.59 and Idaho's 0.76. This constitutes an excellent record fqr both western states, as compared with New York, 1.82 per cent; Missouri, 3.52 per I cent, and Florida 8.90 'per cent. The figures were taken from exam inations of 10,000 men from each state. ■ The percentage may be easily i arrived at by taking the percentage of Maine, 2 02, which means that out ! of every 10,000 draftees from that state, 202 were affected with veneral disease.
