HEMBREE BOUND OVER.
The trial wherein Jess Hembree of Blackfoot is defendant, and the State of Idaho is Plaintiff, occupied the at tention of Judge Salt's court last week, and resulted in Hembree being bound over to appear at the next term of court, and bonds fixed in sum of $500. The case attracted a great deal of at tention owing to the fact that the Cat tlemen 's association was interested in the prosecution, Mr. Hurst to whom be longed the slaughtered beef being a member of the association. The case will be tried at Hailey at the next term of the district court. Hembree, who is a young man, is al leged to be implicated in the cattle stealing case which took place on the desert some time ago. The state en deavored to show that he was in com pany with Ray Hembree, Lawrence West and a young man named Good. At the time of the jail delivery in Blackfoot, Jess Hembree was also a prisoner, but he failed to escape. He was arrested on a warrant charging him with grand larcency, in conjunction with the other men who escaped. Up on arriving at Arco this warrant was dismissed as far as his name was con cerned and he was re-arrested on a sep arate charge. The preliminery hearing occupied the greater portion of two days and re sulted as stated above. The case was prosecuted by Prose cuting Attorney Procter K. ' Perkins and Attorney Chase A. Clark of Mac kay who was retained to assist the prosecution by the cattlemen 's associa tion. W. A. Beakley of Blackfoot, representing the defense. Fred Hurst, Ernest George, R. L. Sewell, Louis Ferris, Thos. Good, A. H. Simmons and Clarence Holland were witnesses for the state, while the de fendant himself, Mrs. Dora France, Miss Helen France and Thos. Good tes tified for the defense. The hide, head and ears of the ani mal found were used as state exhibits, and were identified by several of the witnesses as being parts of an animal belonging to Mr. Hurst and which was slaughtered some time the latter part of March, the remains of which were found on the desert near Powell. The prisoner was taken in charge of, by Sheriff Clements who will hold him until he furnishes bail or is legally discharged by the court.—Area Adver tiser. AFRAID OF LOSING HIGHWAY. The newly appointed members of the state highway commission plan making a tour of the state following the meet ing to be held in Boise on Monday. From that point they will go to the northern part of the state where the members will make an inspection and endeavor to learn the wishes of the people in regard to the route and plan of constructing the state highway. From that point they plan coming to the southeast part of the state, where an inspection will he made to determine the best route and cuurse for the state highway from southeastern Idaho to Butte, Mont. The previous commission has mapped out a plan and route, but objection has been offered to the topo graphy of the country, and it is stated that the commission favors a highwav route which will eliminate Idaho Falls and the route made to go through Cus ter county and on to Salmon City. The politics in the deal are easily understood, and it is a case of whether or not Idaho Falls people and interests are to stand by and see their rights in this matter abused and taken from them.—Idaho Falls Register. AFTER THE BALL. A little maiden, Climbed an old mans knee Begged for a story, Do Uncle please. "After the Ball'' produced by the Photo Drama company of New York, featuring Mr. Herbert Kelcev and Miss Effie Shannon, contains more sensation al death defying thrills than any other feature ever filmed and includes'daring escape over a clothes line four stories high, in which one man is shot and falls to the ground, a slide from the top of a six story building; a fall from a fire escape, a leap to the back of a run away horse; a death defying leap from High Bridge to the Harlem river, 138 feet; then a jump to train going ut forty miles an hour, pursued by a motor cycle cop, who pounds along over the railroad ties on his machine aud ends up by catching up with the end of the train and swings himself aboard. Then follows a wild chase through the train and to cap the climax, just as the train is rushing across a bridge that spans a river, the daring crook leaps from the baggage car of the train to the river, making in all the most startling and genuine death defying series ever film ed. Of course, aside from the sensation, the work of Kelcey aud Shannon with its pretty light comedy moments, heart rending pathos and s vivid dramatic work, serve to make 'After the Ball'', the greatest American production ever thrown on a screen. It will be shown at the Isis theatre. "Wednesday and Thursday, April 14 and 15. Admission 10c. and 20c. Thoroughbred Plymouth Rock Eggs for Hatching—$1.00 for 15 V. A. KINNEY : : ROUTE 3 WORKMAN THROWS RENTHROP; MEN ARE RE-MATCHED. Last Monday night the fans witness ed one of the hardest contested wrestling matches between "Cyclone Workman,'' and Charlie Renthrop, at the Buttcane hall, ever held in this city. Workman by throwing Renthrop, won the right to wrestle Mike Yokel the present middleweight champion of the world. Renthrop secured the first fall in 26 minutes and 6 seconds, by a combina tion leg and neck hold, in which he hold Workman's shoulders to the mat. Workman secured the second fall in 16 minutes an 41 seconds, with a ham mer lock and the famous Goteb toe hold, and in the third and deciding round secured the same hold on Renthrop, and pinned his shoulders to the mat in 4 minutes and 16 seconds. CHARLEY RENTHROP Who boxes "Cyclone'' Workman Saturday Night, April 10. These two men are undoubtedly the best men of tlieir weight outside of a few wrestlers in the Yokel class, in the United States, and those who were not fortunate enough to witness the bout, missed a golden opportunity to see the two wrestlers at work. Both men are boxers and immediately after the match last Monday night, were engaged to box 10 rounds. The bout will take place next Saturday night at the Buttcane hall. Managers Patterson and Buchanan promise the fans a run for their money in this bout Saturday night and have clippings from various papers to show that both men are high in the gentle art of self defense, both having met men like Clarence English, Victor Han sen the crack California middleweigh, who fought Gunboat Smith a draw; and Johnny McCarthy of San Francisco. Later Workman and Renthrop were re matched to wrestle again at the Butt cane hall on the night of Monday, April 12th, to a finish. This is a special aud both men have bet $100 as a side bet on the result. NOTICE TO SCHOOL TRUSTEES.

Alabama and Washington arc follow ing the Texas idea and erecting cottages for the teachers of the rural schools. The idea is to do away with the old nml never satisfactory plan of ' ' boarding 'round,'' a relic of pioneer days. In Texas the school directors erect these cottages near the school house and one county has six of them. In one town the citizens bought the land and erected the house by public subscription. This place has six acres of land around it. In other places the teachers have five and six room cottages, live together on the co-operative plan and hire a woman to do the housework. Texas has over DH! teachers cottages. The plan gives the teachers a chance for privacy and a touch of home life that is kicking th" »vrfom in vogue in other places. It is likely that the plan will continue to extend until there is a teacher's cottage in every school dis trict. SPORTING PICK-UPS. Coach Sexton has been trying out Brickley at third bs*«e in the absence of Captain Ayres. The addition of Bescher to the St. Louis Nationals should greatly strength en the Cardinals' outfield. Harry Wolter, former outfielder of the New York Americans, is to play with the Los Angeles club of the Pa cific coast league this summer. Manager Clarke of the Pittsburg Nationals is taking part in the spring training and is showing some of his old-time form in the outfield. According to Manager Griffith he needs to make but one change in his lineup of last year ana that is in the outfield. He is after a heavy-hitting outfielder. President B. B. Johnson of the American league is predicting that this year's championship race in his league will be one or the best ever known to baseball. Manager Mack of the Athletics is beginning to play golf. At the rate they are going it won't be long be fore all the major league managers are trying the game. John Kling is now being talked of as manager of the Kansas City Féd érais. This would mean the eliininatin og George Stovall, the former Cleveland American league manager. It seems strange to think that In dianapolis after winning two pennants in the Federal league could not keep its franchise. The team should cer tainly' do better in Newark. Reports from Hot Springs state that Captain Wagner of the Pittsburg Nationals is doing some heavy batting this spring. All followers of the game will be glad to see him back in the .300 class this summer. ANOTHER WHITE CHAMPION HAVANA, — Ringside, April 5. — Jess Willard, the Kansas cowboy, is the new heavy weight champion pugilist of the world. He knocked out Jack John son, the black champion in the twenty sixth round of the championship boiit here today. It was Johnson 's fight all the way until the twenty-second round when his vitality left him because of the hard pace which he carried through out the early rounds. Then the giant plainsman opened his heaviest attack and in the next few rounds carried the fight away from the black man anil toppled him over with rights and lefts to the body and blows to the face. Seventeen thousand persons saw the combat and when Johnson crumpled up on the floor from a fierce right swing to the jaw, the crowd burst into the ring. Soldiers cleared the ring. Johnson took the referee's count while lying on the ropes but the mo ment after Referee Welsh had given the decision the former champion got to his feet in time to escape the wild rush of excited spectators. "Mere Man" is Great Success * (Pocatello Chronicle.) From the first number, "Tipperary," to the last, "Safety First," the musical comedy "Mere Man," given last night at the Auditorium by the Bannock Camp Fire Girls was one grand success. The members are among the prettiest of the many charming young ladies of Pocatello and the pleasing picture pre sented last night has not been equaled on the local stage. The large audience was especially at tentive and enthusiastic in its applause and the characters so well and cleverly presented that it would be hard to choose a favorite. Much credit is due Miss Lovell, who so successfully trained the young ladies. "The Camp Fire" members include Misses Carol Diemer, Cora Jones, Mil dred Slingerland, Nellie Carrol, Hfelen McHan, Ruth Bohe, Sarah West, Hudah Sahlburg, Elizabeth Bowerman and Bess O 'Melveny.—Pocatello Tribune. Will bo presented at the Orepheum theatre tomorrow night. NOTICE TO AUTOMOBILE OWNERS A law passed at the recent session of the legislature requires that the fees for automobile and motorcycle li censes shall be paid *o the county as sessor instead of the seertary of state. This law also empowers the assessor to issue licenses to chauffeurs. Some delay has been caused by waiting for the necessary blanks to be printed, but the assessor desires to notify own ers of motor vehicles that he is now ready to take care of this matter. According to a recent opinion of the county attorney, it would seem that the license fees for 1915 are really overdue, and owners should attend to the matter as soon as possible. In making application for a license it is necessary to furnish information as to the factory number of the ma chine, the motor number, and horse power. In case of renewal of license, the number of license for previous year has to be furnished.—E. T. Malcom, assessor.—Advertisement. SEALED BIDS.
