The Idaho Recorder. SALMON, IDAHO, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 1922. VOLUME 37, NO.*» WAR MOTHERS IN CONVENTION HERE The convention of the War Mothers held on Tuesday in Salmon assumed more than an affair of local interest, for the representatives from the dis trict and state brought up for discus sion questions of national importance of interest to the mothers and de manding their co-operative work. Mrs. DeKay, state president, was present. Mr. UeKay brought the party compos ed of Mrs. DeKay, a small son Harold, Mrs. Deroque and Mrs. McDonald all from Blackfoot, while Mrs. Tully, Ida ho Falls, came in by train. Monday evening the visitors guests at the Rex. Tuesday morning began the real work of the convention 4n sessions at the Presbyterian church. A paper written by Mrs. DeKay and read by Mrs. Deroque dealt with international relationship with Germany, the paying of the Geiman indemnity and recent peace conferences; another splendid paper was read by Mrs. Emigh and written by Mrs. Stoy, wife of Archdea con Stoy, Boise, on the Enforcement of the Eigiiteenth Amendment. In pre liminary remarks Mrs. DeKay said the Eighteenth amendment should not be violated any more than the. Four teenth amendment, which prohibits slavery, and that officers were found who enforced that amendment and officers should be found who would en force the Eighteeth amendment.. At the afternoon session Mrs. De Kay discussed the Bonus bill, empha sizing that it should be called the Ad justed Compensation bill as more tru ly expressing its purpose. A report of the work of these organizations ov er the state was given and high praise given to the local mothers for their splendid work here. Mrs. DeKay also explained fully the program of hospi tal and hospitalization work. In the evening the public had an op portunity to greet the state and dis trict delegates and to enjoy a vaided program including vocal and instru mental music, recitations and a talk by the Sate War Mother president, Mrs. DeKay. Among the district delegates pres ent were Mrs. S. B. Chandler Mrs. Britt. Mrs. John Reddington of Lead ore; Mrs. R. M. Moore, Sandy creek; The visitors were entertained by the Salmon War Mothers as to hotel ac commodations and meals at their own their own tea room. The strangers were not permitted indeed to spend any of their own money while in Sal mon and they were receiving seme mark of respect at every step they took about the town. "It is no won der your own people are loyal to such women," was a remark made by more than one of the visitors. It was a constant matter of wonder how these splendid souls ever find the time to do so much for the cause in which they are enlisted, the building of a memor ial hospital, but it is explained when it becomes known that it is a work of love for their boys. j j j I J I I j 1 ; j ; BARTL— WESTFALL.

John Buster, the Salmon river stage man, was nearing the^top of Cleghorn ~ " ' hill last Tuesday when a deluge of rain caught him. He doesn't remem her ever encountering a deluge like it before. If it had been caught into the confines of a canyon such as was the case with the downpour of two weeks before at the Schultz ranch the damage might have been serious. As it was the rain did no damage to speak of. In Pollard canyon and Jesse creek the same day a deluge of the same sort came tearing into Salmon anil outspreading on to the ranches below. Old-timers say it was record rain on that day. The heavy cloud broke up j soon after passing over Salmon, but it had great stores to drop over the entile locality before it did break. No Politics on the Bench. The War Mothers' convention | brought to Salmon Frank DeKay, j former sheriff of Bingham county and j former warden of the penitentiary by « appointment under Governor Alexan- ! der. Mr. DeKay was able to inform a good many inquirers about matters political while here—how it is that the : normal republican majority of <00 in | Bingham is likely to be cut in two and how George B. Harris, democratic candidate for judge, is likely to do! even better than that, for everybody knows Harris to be a clean-cut law yer who thinks there should be no pol itics carried up to the bench. Mr. Dc Kay is an old friend of Sheriff Stroud and called to ree his large and varied assortment of captured stills stored at the courthouse. Salmon Schools Open.

CAR ON FIRE IS HARD TO PUT OUT Jerry Becker, well known flockmas ter of Carmen creek, had an experi ence not soon to be forgotten with his car the other day at Gibbonsville. The machine persisted in taking fire at the intake of air and gas at the engine. Mr. Becker found something to smoth er the flame every time it broke out. b inally after everything else had been burned he applied mud to the seat of i the trouble. It was found that a break in the exhaust had caused the rires and Jack Heidt was called upon to give the machine the once-over to ! correct the defect. THOMAS PALMER IN BAD ACCIDENT Thomas Palmer, old Lemhi citizen, fell from a ladder at a new house he was building at Gibbonsville last Sat urday, sustaining a broken collar bone in the accident. Dr. Wright was call ed from Salmon. Mr. Palmer is ad vanced in age, being beyond four .core but his robust general health is re lied upon soon to pull him through. The fall was a bail cne and but for striking upon a beard nesting . n tres tles it might have been fatal. The two daughters of the old gen tleman, Mrs. Jones and Mrs. Benedict, came to nurse him as soon as they 1 heard of the accident, 'he former from ; Gilmore and the latter from Leudore. j The whole countryside was made anx jious. Mr. Palmer is greatly beloved and respected in the community. A ^ few years ago he was bereft of his j life partner by the death of Mrs. Pal ! mer. These two fine old people were ! i always seen together when abroad j , from their home. , ----: VOTES FOR VIEL! j - j ! - The voters of the state of Idaho j ! have the right, sacred and undisputed, j i to choose their own public servants.!, ' ? Uîlge Adair thinks otherwis * antl 80 j he ruled in the \ îel court case brought \ .• S I before him. On appeal to the Su - , P rernc Court Viel's contention in be half of this primary right was ruled I valid and good. But this same court - - «r* « «r * -»-»* -. reversed itself to the extent of saying : i that another trial in the district court j was the proper thing and so ordered. Of course another trial is out of the j question when the entire term for which Viel has been contending will have expired before the second tria can be reached. And so it remains fo the voters themselves to decide thi case, for Viel is a candidate again. When politics are rotten, S And the stench you scarce can bear, I When votes and courts arc boughten, And y„ u want to tear your hair; , When thirty cents of dog meat ; ' Would express the way you feel; Just calm yourself and with a smile ! Begin to boost for Viel! j y 0 u CAN'T stand on the sideline And be neutral in the fight; You'll be diligent in labors It isn't party politics, That almost gets our goat; It's the dirty, underhanded tricks, That rock the county boat; For all good men where e're they live, Despise and hate a steal, That's why you should be glad to give Another ioo t for Viel! There is no doubt about it, If you're boosting for the righ 4 ; | j That will make the devil squeal, As you work with friends and neigh bors Boosting, making votes for Viel! ROY VV. NELSON. All Ready But The Horses a A n ✓ / f A L A BANKRUPT STATE HOW TO REDEEM IT A sweeping reduction in the burden -of taxation and the pas.-uige of laws which will restore the state wide di rect primary, and guarantee bank de posits, will in my judgment, be the paramount issues of the campaign. If there was any doubt of democrat ic success in November that doubt has been removed by the total lack of con structive leadership and political fore sight on the part of those who domi nated the republican convention ut Wallace. Senator Borah and the progressive element in the republican party, who accept his leadership, demanded a di rect primary plank. The convention repudiated the primary. The progres sives of the party then demanded u plank guaranteeing bank deposits. Again they went down to defeat at the hands of the men who hund-pick éd their nominee.'- and dictated a plat form which officially reads out of the party every progressive republican in the state. With the strongest ticket ever nam ed at a democratic convention in Ida ho, a constructive, forward-looking platform, a united party organization and a well nigh bankrupt state gov ernment left as a legacy from the present republican administration, the democratic state central committee proposes to carry the issues into every precinct in the state. Nothing short of ,. ________ „ _________________ o _______ jour inability to reach the voters with ! the plain unvarnished facts can pre j vent the election of every person who , receive.I a certificate of nomination at the Hailey convention. j W. U. HOKNIBROOK, j Democratic State Chairman. j .-__ j Worse Than the War. the past eighteen months there j than Srice^ m^ny ^erie^, aH result of automoile accidents, as were killed in the great war. Only 48,000 of our boys went west in the big con flict, while in the la t year und a half 01,000 Americans died as a result of motor car accidents. The startling feature of these fig lies in a knowledge thut the war „ : a f ^ mutor . ca ' ls W1 *h g&spite the heavv^toM it 'takes*in j human life nothing is going to stop its progress, Consideration of the ' situation brings its importance home to the country even more than to the city be cause nearly seventy per cent of the automobiles manufactured in America are sold and used in towns of five thousand population and under ami on the farm.-. This mean that preventable deaths in the country a a result of automo bile activities is proportionately great, |a situation so serious that it cries aloud that something be done to halt ; i J . ; j this yearly national disaster. One of the great sources of automo 1 I mie acculent is the grade crossing, a problem m every small community. In many states the law prescribes that when grade crossings are elimi nated the villages through which they pass must stan 1 a good proportion of the expense. This i, a heavy burden on the taxpayers. On the other hand to order the rail roads generally to eliminate crossing at grade, either by an elevation or by submerging of track-, would appear to be an unjust demand. This matter of grade crossings is more than local. Indeed it is so na tional in character it might be well for Washington to assist more mate rially than it does in checking the country's most notorious death traps. NORTH FORK ROAD TO BE PIT THROUGH D. T. Knight, engineer of the feder al bureau of public roads, on Monday morning began setting up camp at Gibbonsville for supervising the actual construction of the North folk high way, a contract for which was to be let at the Ogden office of he bureau on Tuesday. With Mr. Knight are four assistants, R. L. Downing, R. W. Griffin, Jack Andrews and H. Cortez. In the present unit of construction is the portion of the road extending as far up the North fork river as the Achord ranch. Beyond that point an other survey is to be made at once to eliminate objectionable features in a previous survey. This survey will, it is said, reestablish the line of the road as proposed some years ago by Coun ty Engineer Fred Crandall. The engineering forces on the job will be housed in a tent at the con fluence of Dahtonega creek with the river. They will board at the Royce dwelling. Pleasant Social Gathering. One of the largest picnics of all the summer was a community gathering on Hughes creek last Sun lay for the residents of the North fork river and adjacent settlements, upwards of . cv enty persons being present. Not only dinner but an evening meul was serv ed from the great bounty of fried chicken, sandwiches, salads, ice cream and cake provided for the occasion. If there had been twice as many guests doubtless the commissary supplies would have fared them abundantly. The feast was spread upon an L shaped table twenty feet long, u ith benches and boxes furnishing seats. When all the company hud gathered a minister of the gospel, Kev. liny W. Nelson, a visitor in the neighborhood, asked divine favor to promote such delightful social intercourse and friendliness and asking the blessing of the Father. For this unusual out of doors service every heart was bowed in silent reverence from the greatest glee of a moment before. In the company were Mr. and Mrs. Frank Dean and family, John Buster and family, Mr. and Mrs. Hal Hal stead and family, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Jones and family, Hagel boys and families, Charles Hull and family, Rev. Roy \V. Nelson anil wife, Eric Riivndal and family, Mr., and Mrs. John H. Koske and family, Waliska Brothers and famil ies. Mrs. Bartl and family, Mrs. Charles Harrier and fanT ily of children, Roland Sullivan and family, George Ashworth, Jint Itob bins, Charles Trowbridge, Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Melvin. The C. H. Heitner family called during the afternoon. The picnic was arranged by the Home Ecnomics club of North Fork and was its second annual picnic. Finds Eight-Mile-Values. The report comes from Leadore that a notable strike has been made in the Big Eight-Mile district on the Wilbur F. Stone property. A few months ago J. D. Pritchett md sons took a lease and option on been doing development work which has opened up a good sized vein of ore carrying values to the amount rf $300 per ton in free gold and several ounces in silver. •'»'•»O VV'V« M il ».'V hum UI/WVII V/U this porperty and have since that time B The road to the diggings is com pleted and the first car of ore is at this time being hauled to the railroad for shipment to the Utah smelters Sale of City Property. Fred R. McCahe ami wife have deeded lots 7 and 8, block 3, Fin.tur addition, to Mariette Pyeatt Yearian for $1,500. The McCabes are moving to Boise to make the new home, tak ing their furniture by truck and them selves by automobile overland. ' TWO SETS OF NAMES IN SCHOOL ELECTION Two sets of candidates have been put forward for the important office of school trustees of Salmon for a term of three years, to fill the places to become vacant and now, filled by W. C. Smith and W. C. Docbler. On the 28th instant R. W. White, at pres ent on the same board, filed the names of Mr. Smith and E. H. Casterlin and the day following Dr. Owen T. Strat ton presented the names of C. A. Nor ton and C. H. Heidner. ^ This election is to take place at the East Side school house next Tuesday, September 5, between the hours of 1 and 5 p. m. The law prescribes the same requirements as at general elec tions but it is manifestly impossible to vote by the registration und that has never been observed. The bounds of the school districts are not the same as election districts. The inharmonious management of the Salmon schools for a number of years has seriously impaired their usefulness and efficiency. It is thought perhaps the infusion of new blood at this time into the viens of the govern ing body as proposed by Dr. Stratton, will work a cure in some respects to promote harmony as well as efficiency. At the same time less politics in the schools might work wonders. In no sense are Messrs. Norton and Heidner involved in such matters but are among the foremost business men of character in the district anti have no axes to grind in running the schools. Better l.ate Than Never. In the last issue of the Herald, Aug ust 30, the Salmon school board pub lishes its annual report, something heretofore ignored by that body in the legal requirements of it and now near ly two months late in making Its ap pearance, for the school laws provide for such publication on the first Hay of July in each and every year. But then it's better late than never. WHY IS A WHEAT-TARIFF? The farmers having two years ago foisted a 45-cent wheat duty on the unsuspecting public in the Fordney tariff, it tardily occurred to the Amer ican Farm Bureau Federation to in vestigate the merits of this legisla tion. So the legislative department of the federation called on its fellow de partment of economics to find out. The latter has formally reported that it can't. After viewing the subject from all pmsinlo angles it concludes that it can't be sure that there have been any benefit« to the American grower and if there are any benefits it fears that they may I«: offset by concomitant in jurie.!. About the only thing the farmer professors are sure of is that t'unadi an against American manufactured goods has lopped about $200,00,00 off our sales to our best customer, all things considered; but whether that has hurt the American farmer to any appreciable extent, they can't say. in fine, the farmers' economic experts about conclude thnt nobody ever can tell what a tariff does or will Jo_ wherein they differ from 435 members of the House and !»fi senators, each of whom knows precisely—in public—all about it. Still, the agricultural econo mists are sure of one thing, to-wit, that the Fordney tariff has well nigh taken all the profits out of our trade with Canada. A year from now other economic wiseacres may be pronounc j n g like conclusions i m rr r - regard to a lot of schedules drawn on -the Golfing plan of giving 'em all they" want.—• September Sunset.
