Davis, dis trict manager in the ten northern counties for the Non-partisan league, who was arrested here on the charge of seditious utterances alleged to have been made in Latah county, has a big task before him to prove he is not disloyal. The meat of the com plaint in full follows: The specific charge made is that Davis in conversation with farmers near Moscow and in the presence of tfnio witnesses said "the capitalists and big concerns of America and other countries in war met in Berlin and framed this war. You don't have to buy these liberty bond. These bonds are nothing but graft. Let those who framed the war buy the bonds. The government is stand ing in with the banks and you can only get 4 per cent for your money. The banks charge you 8 per cent for the money." It is further alleged that when Davis was asked about the Red Cross he said, "The Red Cross is all right, but you don't know if the money goes to the right place." The complaint alleges the utter ances were made early in August and since that time the Latah county council of defense and the United States department of justice have been working on the case. ♦ DECEMBER 1 SET ABIDE AS "CONSERVATION SUNDAY" United States Food Administrator Herbert Hoover has called ubon the American people to set aside Decem ber 1 as "Conservation Sunday." During that week there will be dis tributed to each home in the United States a new home card, indicating the 1918-1919 program for food con servation. In order that the impro tant features of this vital program be presented,. Mr. Hoover has prepared a message to be read Ln all churches on December 1 and Federal Food Ad ministrator Bicknell will request all demoninations in Idaho to observe the day with a conservation service following the reading ot the mes sage. When.the interallied food council was held last siSnmer and the needs of the-allies were computed it was found that America must this com ing year send for our armed forces and the allies half as much again of food supplies as last year. Instead of eleven and three-quarters million tons the shipments this year will be seventeen and one-half million tons. "We are pledged to send 50 pet cent more food and from substan tially the same suppliese as last year so the necessity exists to increase our conservation to accomplish the re sults," says Administrator Bicknell. "The lnterallld council was told by Mr. Hoover that whatever the war food program of the allies required would be met by the United States. This is therefore an obligation measured iu the terms of human life that rests on every American. "Last year the food administration was meeting one emergency after an other as it arose, but this year it will be a long steady pull directed to'the whole food situation and not so much 4 * 4 * 4 * 4 * 4 * 4 * 4 * + 4 - 4 * + 4 * 4 ^ 4 * + + + H' "I will smash the German $ 4- line in France if you will smash + 4* damnable Hun propaganda at 4* 4- home."

The war conscience is active everywhere and the food administration confidently expects the spirit to carry this effort thru to another triumph with Idaho in the forefront. Germany's peace efforts and the military situation must not cause any relaxation in con servation for Mr. Hoover states that conservation becomes particularly important because evacuation of oc cupied territory imposes upon us re sponsibility for additional civilian populations." Mr. Hoover's message for conserva tion Sunday will be distributed to the clergy thru the cftunty administra tors of the Idaho section of the United States food administration. ♦ POEM WRITTEN BY JOHN DEAN The* following poem was written by John Dean of Blackfoot: There is kaiser Bill He has an iron will. The Yanks they gave a poke And then his will is broke, And that is kaiser Bill. He says you dirty Yanks Quit cutting up your pranks And breaking thru our ranks, - For we are going home. We. thought the Yanks wore thin. But they have got us on the run With their little sawed off gun, On towards Berlin. When this awful war is over, And the work 'tis well done. We'll return to home and mother And say we licked the Hun. We know we have done our duty, And we know we have done it well. We have got the Hun a running And we hope he will run to hell. Now we have done our fighting, And our money we have lent. We will return as clean and pure As we were before we went. -«-_L_ CONGRESSMAN SMITH'S RECORD Addison T. Smith of ;Twin Falls, who has been renominated for con gress in the primaries without op position, has actively supported the government's plans for preparedness and consistently sustained the presi dent in all his recommendations for the enactment of emergency legisla tion . and ample appropriations for the conduct of the war. He is the author of a bill .which has attracted the attention of the leaders of both branches of congress and is strongly recommended by Secretary Lane for enactment next session, to provide. Dfirins for. returning soldiers on re claimed arid, swamp and cut-over lands, under the provision of which soldiers and sailors will have the pre ference right of employment and en try. Congressman Smith has been ac tive in support of prohibition legisla tion, woman's suffrage, rural credits, the fixing of a price for wheat, which will encourage ample production and give the farmers a fair profit. He has also advocated fegislatloh to reg ulate the price of farm machinery, vehicles, harness and other com modities. farmers have to buy. He has specialized on the enactment of legislation -for the benefit of settlers on tne public land and has several laws of this character to his credit. He Initiated and carried to a suc cessful conclusion legislation provid ing for the government to take over the King Hill Irrigation project, for which $600,000 was appropriated, saving to the settlers their homes and earnings of years. A bill which he introduced over a year ago has been made the basis of a systematic plan, strongly endorsed by the ad ministration, to encourage private capital to invest in irrigation bonds, where the projects are constructed by the reclamation service, under which the Bruneau, North Side Mini doko, Fort Hall and other proposed Irrigation projects will be con structed. His prompt and intelligent attention to the requests of his con stituents has attracted to him a large personal following regardless of poli tics, who are interested in his re election. adv. PEOPLE PUT PUB. USHERS OUT OF BUSINESS The Courier at Souix City, Io*w& has suspended oh account of the peo ple with-holding their patronage. It was a German newspaper ,and had flourished for a quarter of a cen tury, supplying the German-speaking people, but they went back on the mother tongue and the paper closed its doors. The Leader, of Logan, N. M., has gone out of business, the publisher announcing that he could not operate the paper on blue sky and sunshine. B. B. Dowell, publisher of the Times at Paulding, Ohio, has sus « ended publication because he could ot get skilled help to do the work. The Enterprise at Carney, Okla., and the Times at Robinson, N. D., have suspended. The editor of the Reporter- at Rockdale, Tex., has been studying conditions in the newspaper industry and makes the following Observa tion: There are fewer weekly papers be ing published in the United States now than ever before in the last quarter of a century. Those papers which are surviving the war condi tions are the ones which are practic ing economy, raising their subscrip tion and advertising rates, and otherwise exhibiting sound business judgment. When potatoes, bacon, or calico cost the merchant more, he sells them for more. The same prin ciple must be applied to the news paper business if the newspaper is to sqrvive. The Register-Tribune of Des Moines, Iowa, has seventy service .stars in its flag for the seventy em ployees who have joined the colors, and now has fifty-six young women on its staff. Of this number thirteen are in the editorial departnmet, and twienty-four in the circulation and business department.
