Shall we save the ||
Candy Industry?

< •
< >
It is not the wish of the government to destroy Industry. J (
When people know the truth about the candy Industry, they Imme- ,,
diately recognize candy as a wonderful food product—one that Is rich J J
In nutritive values—a necessary food for people who work hard. < j
Sugar Is a necessity. We do not take our requirements of sugar, J J
< ► a spoonful at a time. Some people like their sugar In candy form. And < j
* [ they are just as much entitled to it In that form as others are entitled ,,
< ►
< >
] 1 to have It melted In their coffee.
] I In 1916 (the last normal year In the industry), there were approxl
{' mately 2500 candy factories In the United States, using about 8%
«► of the sugar consumed iu the entire country. A much smaller percent
, , age than anyone thought. You thought It much higher, didn't you?
i > The capital invested in the Industry was- then more than
,, $110,000,000; greater now.
< | It 1& the thirty-eighth largest industry in the United States.
J J It employs normally 100,000 people, 75 per cent of whom are women.
1 , It makes possible, to a large extent, the chocolate and paper box
J | industries, with their millions Invested, and employing thousands more
< * people—mostly women.
] J There are still people who believe that the candy Industry Is using
<» from 25% to 50% of the national sugar production, and that the wiping
\ ' out of the Industry would solve the sugar problem.
■ - The truth Is that pnly 8% of the sugar was used In normal times,
< > and today this has been cut to 4%.
1 ► Reasonable people, with these facts before them, are realizing that
< I with only this small amount of sugar going Into candy, and in view of
J) the high food value, it is time to consider effecting further saving? by
' ' conserving In other directions as well.

tant day in all history. Cars rambled

voices. Extremely loud blasts were
Jheard here all day Monday and far

It is re
German Submarines Have Driven
Hardy Dutch Sailors From Their
Occupation in the North Sea.
In this day of the lurking submarine
the waters of the North sea are a
marked danger zone for the fisherman
of the Netherlands, and consequently
the rivers and Inner seas of Holland
are thronged with brown-sailed fishing
smacks, all eagerly pursuing the elu
sive herring, salmon, pike and carp.
Until the boat's tanks or barrels are
filled the determined fisherman sticks
at his job. If a good haul is soon
made he may steer the craft up some
canal to an inland town to market
his catch. He gets out the sign,
"Fish for Sale," and fastens it to the
mast, draws the boat up to the canal's
edge, and is soon besieged by house
wives anxious to inspect his wares.
The fish, as if conscious of their pend
ing fate, swim uneasily about in the
tank, while thrifty Patch matrons
follow certain ones excitedly with a
forefinger, and the seller endeavors to
locate the desired fish In the swarm
ing tub.
On a summer evening when a fleet
of the good ships has made port after
a hard day's work, a fishing village Is
one of the most picturesque sights In
Holland. Sails patched or torn and
flapping rise and fall In the harbor
with the motion of the waves. The
brawny Dutch fisherman, revived by
supper and the evening pipe, Is coring
fish and exchanging stories with neigh
bors on the dock, while his wife sits
before her cottage mending nets, or
perhaps adorning a torn sail with a
vivid red pateh.
There is little rest for these hard
working seamen and their wives. Fish
have long been to Holland what rice
is to China or the potato to America.
With its food supply ebbing danger
ously low, Holland looks more than
ever to her fisher folk to feed the

for some sport that If he wanted pie
all he had to do was order It. When
meal time came around the rookie or
dered pie. Of course he didn't get it,
so he raised a rumpus. After a few
moments his commanding officer was
heard to say, "You're in the army now.

It Is not unusual in a great fight
like the one we have had in Idaho
that someone should be called upon
to make sacrlflices.
As soon as I learned the true con
dition In Idaho I knew the state
could be saved only through a cam
paign of education, exposing Town
ley, LeSeuer, and his gang, showing
them up to the people in their true
Someone had to make the fight
for Idaho and I would rather have
made tho fight and lost than not to
have made the fight and won, for,
after all, a seat in the United States
senate is an empty honor compared
with a place in the hearts of the good
people of this state. There is only
one thing worth living for In this
world and that Is the respect of the
people. A public Bervant, or a man
who serves the people as a public
servant and retires from office with
out the respect of the good people
of the state or nation would bdfyer
have never served the people at all.
Many things are very gratifying
to me in this campaign, one of which
Is that I had the support of a large
perC ent of the laboring men of the
8 t a te. Especially is this true of the
railroad men in Pocatello and other
places. The I. W. W. forces have
tor years been -trying to poison the
laboring men against me. I want to
a88ure the laboring men of this state
thftt wjherever the fortunes of life
mei j n tne future as in the
pa8t( x sha n a i waya be their friend.
For fourteen years of my early life
I worked for day's pay and I know
and understand that if this govern
'meat i 8 to prosper the laboring man's
interests must be considered and he
mu8t be glven a square deaL What
we want , n thla country and mu8t
have iB a square deal all round and
that is what I have always fought
for, as my record shows.
If anyone thinks this fight is over
because election is past they have
made a mistake. I promised the
people in the campaign that I should
continue my fight against anarchy,
treason, and rebellion until the end.
Many new people have come to the
state since I had the honor of serv
ing Idaho as chief executive and I
am glad to have them know some
thing through me of the assassina
tion of ex-governor Steunenberg and
the blot left upon the fair name of
Idaho by the acquittal of Haywood
and Pettlbone of the greatest crime
ever committed on American soil.
I had but one thought in this fight
and that was to educate the people
as far as possible to the danger of
such men as Townley and LeSeuer
and those associated with them, who,
it is proven conclusively by court
records, were in sympathy with Bill
Haywood and the I. W. W. Organi
zation—the greatest criminals this
country has ever produced.
It is this dangerous element that
the good citizenship must fight
against at all times and I accept my
defeat with the knoiwfledge that for
the time at least I have saved Idaho
from the greatest disgrace that can

William Delzer operates a thresher
outfit and says the yield this year was
about fifteen bushels per acre on the
best farms. Others raised less than
that, but in all cases he said the
yield graded according to the way the
land was treated. What they call
"stubbllng In" does not bring much
returns excepting those years when
there are favorable rains. The land
that was summer fallowed produced
from eight to fifteen bushels this
year, and farmers are not at all dis

land yields better crops after it has
been farmed a few years and are
