THE IDAHO REPUBLICAN
. SEMI-WEEKLY Published every Tuesday and Friday BYRD TREGO. Editor and Proprietor i Entered at the postefflee at Black foot, Idaho, as second-lass matter. Subscription price . 23.00 per Year THE FRENCH WOMEN STAND FIR... During the early days of the war the organization known as the coun cil of French women appealed to the women of Germany to use their influence to stop the atrocities being practiced by the Germans upon help less non-combatants and prisoners. The reply they received was to the effect that when their fighting men and statesmen adopted a course for conducting the 'war the German wo men would sustain them in it. The French women then appealed to the women of Germany to use their in fluence to stop the Germans from perpetrating further atrocities upon the women and children of the oc cupied districts and reminded the German women that the fortunes of the war might yet reverse conditions so that they themselves might need just such protection as the French and Belgians were then pleading for. To this the German women, thru their organization, made no reply whatever. When the terms of the Armistice were announced. the womfen of Ger many, thru their organization, ap pealed to the council of French wo men to use their influence to modify the terms of the armistice to make them more mild. The French wo men reminded them of their former . appeal to which the German women turned a deaf ear and of the recent appeal or decent treatment for wo men and children to which the Ger man w^rnen made no reply, and re minded them that the fortunes of war had now been reversed and that the conduct of the allies will be so clean and noble that the German wo man and children will have no oc casion to appeal for decent treat ment, but that if the terms of the armistice are harsh the German wo men are not in a position to appeal to the French women for protection and the French women are accord ingly asking nothiiig in the way of a modification of the armistice. A GEM OF ARMY LITERATURE General Pershing is rising rapidly In the esteem of all thinking people hot only because he *has proven his ability as a commander, bpt 1 of his good seAs4 and modesty, ever he says anything he makes It short and to the point, using plain, 1 well selected English. After observing for. four years the atrocities Of the Huns and the out rageous military orders issued by the officers the following order or pro clamation issued by General Persh ing when he ehtered German terri tory must appeal to all thinking people as a gem of army literature: • "After the four years of violation of your .territory the,Grand Duchy of Luxumburg has happily been lib erated- Your liberation from Ger of the invaders by the armies of the man occupation has been demanded Americans and the allies as one of the conditions of the present armis tice. It becomes necessary now for the American troops to pass through the grand duchy of Luxumburg and to establish and maintain there for a certain time their lines of / com munication. "The American troops have come into the grand duchy Of Luxumburg ns friends and shall rigorously con duct themselveB according to Inter national law. Their presence, which shall not be prolonged more than shall be strictly necessary, should not be for you a hardship. The /functioning op your government and *onr Institutions shall not.be inter fered with in any manner. Your life and your occupation shall not be molested. Your persons and your welfare shall be respected. "It will be necessary for the Am erican army to use certain things, railroads, telegraph and telephones and per naps other public establish ments for the ~needs of lodging and transport; furthermore, the commo dities which become necessary for us shall be paid for after just es* timates. "It .Is presumed you will not per mit any acts of agression against the American army or give any Informa tion or aid to its enemy. You will always conform to the instructions that the American commander, for the safety of his troops and your proper protection, may give." , because When MR. TOWN LEY FACING A TEST. Plans afe maturing for a national convention . of the Non-partisan league to be .held at St. Paul early in December and lasting for several days. Delegates from all the states where the league is organized will meet at St. Paul and notice has been published that a reorganization may be made, giving the membership more power than they have had here tofore. The organization articles of association have kept the power in the hands of three men to delegate the power thruout the whole juris diction. Considerable criticism has been made of the method, especially the fact that/the articles of associa tion provide that these three men, constituting the head committee, have power to perpetuate them selves In office Indefinitely. Two members of the committee elect a third member of the committee every four years. That makes it possibly for them to stay in office as long as they live and ekercise autocratic power over the whole membership. It has been very stoutly denied by league organizers that this was the case, but it bai heed so com pletely proven by their own people that It now becomes necessary for them to provide now articlesi of as aoelation, giving the membership power that the members supposed they always had, or they will try the rLmbers further to see If they will stand for such centralized power to the hands efi three men and their It will be interesting appointees. -T to see whether they ganlzatlon to make It t$uly cratic and If they do that, they there by acknowledge that it has been autocratic, or if they do not re prganlse the members will konw that what the opposition press has been ts&ylng was true and if they do re organize or make new plans, the members will know that they are in debted to the opposition press for se curing such revision. In any event there are probably better days ahead for the member ship of the league, who will either be taken into a fuller partnership or will find there is something they cannot subscribe to and will leave it. -a— - . demo SOLDIERS'LETTERS < Pvt.

Two girls traveling on a ' train through Hooslerdom could have learn ed a lesson from a plain little Indiana school teacher, had they been wise enough to do so. They were going on a pleasure trip and determined to have pleasure all the way. On the train they munched candy, read magazines, played rbum and tried in every way they could to attract the attention of two uniformed young men near them— but all in vain. The little school teacher, who was on her way to attend a county insti tute^got on the train at a little country town; Shyly she entered the car, quiet ly she took a seat across from the two girls, who were rather noisy in their efforts to gain notice, and immediately after she was settled she began to fin ish a beautiful knitted soldier sweater. Industriously she worked—so intent on her work that she noticed no one. But the people noticed her and ap preciated her zeal and the quality of her patriotism. They smiled whenever they passed her seat and proffered her the' loan of their papers and books. And before many miles had eled one of the khaki-clad youths was beside her and the other one opposite. The sweater had been examined, the process of making it explained to the youths, and now they were telling the little teacher camp stories. The two girls giggled and remarked about "some people's tastes," because they didn't understand.—Exchange. trav RISK LIVES TO CATCH FISH Indian Boys Get Rich Harvest From Breaking Waves Off the Coast of Washington. Even the lads of nine and twelve years at the old Indian settlement of La Push, nestling behind the pinnacle rocks that rise out of the Pacific ocean off the mouth of the Qulllayute river In Washington, are doing their share toward winning the war. The lads, half dressed, dash across* the beach to meet the Incoming tide, wade into the water and wait for the waves to bretok with fish. As the combers break the lads dash into the boiling surf and rake the ocean for fish, quently the waves dash over the boys' heads, but they never lose their foot ing and the danger of the work does not excite more than passing attention from the old women weaving baskets. During the day the Indians at La Push village average fnlly a ton of fish caught with dip nets. The older men help with the curing when tirffic day's work is done, but it is th& bojfs* task to capture the fish. With each tide thousands of smelt are driven inshore. Each lift of the dip nets from the surf ' generally brings a basketful of fish. " Three of Qulllayutes are now lp the military service. There are now 250 men, women and children hrfhe little settlement, but each Is doing hts or her share with fishing, 'wat gardens and other activities to help win the war. rro v- ,i' First Trans-Atlantic Liner. The astonishing, development of America's shipbuilding industry with in the last few years makes certain >that our merchant marine will soon be restored to the supremacy it once held, and recalls the launching at New York, Just 100 years ago, of the first trans-Atlantic liner to be operated by steam power. She was the famous Sa vannah, a vessel of 350 tons. The crank who thought It was possible for a ship to cross the Atlantic by steam power was William Scarborough of Sa vannah. The Savannah left New York for the home city of her bnilder on April 10, 1819, and a little more than a month later cleared for Liver pool, where she was given a rousing welcome, as the firs# steam vessel to cross the ocean. The trip was made In four days less than a month. From Liverpool the Savannah proceeded to St. Petersburg, and In December, 1819, she was again In her home port—New York World. 8aved. Her Father's Life. Heroic presence qf mind exhibited by his fifteen-year-old daughter, Kath ryn, saved the life of Harry B. Gregg, a broker of San Francisco, when he fell with his horse on the brink of a cliff while pursuing a deer, according to his story. Gregg was dangling over the side of the cliff, clinging to the bridle of his frantically tugging horse, when his daughter hurled a lasso around him and cinched it about a tree. Gregg says he, scrambled back to the path with difficulty, aa his leg from the ankle to knee had been bruised in the fall from the horse. Heard on the Golf Course. He had pulled his golf ball far to the left. "Well," he said by way of consol ine himself. "I'd much rather have a null than a slice." "That depends," replied the experi enced player. "In golf it may be bet ter. but I've noticed in the game of politics they frequently play for a pull In order to get a slice." Conscientious Objectors. The most contemptible use to which an outward profession of religion can be put is a clonk to hide cowardice by hlrklng.

The 27th day of August, 55 B. 0), may, upon good grounds, be set down as the day on which Caesar invaded the Island of Britain. It is Interesting to learn the method by which a pains taking and ingenious inquirer deter mined the date as given—-Caesar him self tells that he proceeded on his ex pedition when little of the summer re mained—wljen the people of the south of Britain were engaged in their har vest—and we learn that he returned before the equinox. Thus, the day must have been In August. He further tells us that the full moon occurred on the fourth day after his landing. The full, moon of August in that year, as given by astronomical tables, occurred at 8 a. m. of the 31st. Hence, Caesar land ed on the 27th. It is well known that Caesar met with greater difficulty in. landing and making good his first footing on the island than he expected. The southern Brifons were a people well advanced In civilization at the time. It was only aboht a century after this that London, by Its present name, was a city crowd ed with merchants and of world-wide celebrity. History repeats itself. England* even in those early days when Caesar made war on the Venltl, to the west of Gaul, the Britons sent a fleet of ships to their assistance. SEIZED CAPE COLONY TWICE Peace of Amiens Nullified Britain's Capture of Holland's 8outh Afri can Territory In 1798. Early lh the wars of the French Revolution Holland was forced to be come an ally of Great Britain. A Brit ish fleet appeared off Cape Town In August, 1795, and the colony surren dered on September 16. For seven years Britain held the country, spend ing fully eigHt million dollars in Im proving it. Monopolies were taken off trade, tortnre was abolished, and pros perity prevailed, whereas before the colony had been on the verge of ruin. In 1802 the Peace of Amiens secured for Napoleon a breathing spell, which he used in preparing still greater at tacks upon the liberties of Europe. By this treaty Gape Colony was restored to Holland. War was resumed in 1806, with Holland an ally once more of France. Again the British captured Cape Colony, and whdh peace was defi nitely settled In 1815, after Waterloo, Britain retained South Africa, paying 'Holland six million pounds sterling, the colonies of Demerara, Essequlbo and Berblce being Included in the sale. The population consisted of 26,700 whites; holding 29,300 slaves, and 17, 650 free Hottentots. Britain sup pressed the slave trade and in 1884 the Slaves were emancipated by the Brit ish government Snaring Snakes. For sheer, downright danger the work of snake catching in the Austra lian bush-compares very favorably with anything one might imagine. It is also an exceedingly profitable method of earning a livelihood—that Is, if yon survive. The snakes are collected for the sake of their venom, a substance that, like radium, Is valued by the grain, a pound of it being worth abont £500. It ia in active demand by chemists and is obtained, as far as Australians cerned, from only three .species of snakes—the death adder, the brown adder and the tiger snake. The reptiles must be caught unin jured, and It goes without saying that the business demands considerable skill and agility on the part of those following It. Tiger snakes are the best, for they carry most venom; and they are still numerous in the more remote parts of the seldom-visited Interior. con Switzerland's Gipsies. Just 500 years ago, writes a corre spondent of the Nene Zurcher Zeltung, onr forefathers In the city on the Llm mat had a new experience. A motley army of people came into Switzerland from the east and camped just out side the walls of Znrich for two weeks. They numbered some 14,000 persons, men, women and children, swarthy wayfarers, according to an old chronicle, were commonly known as gipsies or heathens. They said they had been' driven out of Egypt. Their clothing was miserable, bnt they wore many ornaments of gold and sil ver, maintained perfect order and dis cipline, and paid punctually for all they ate and drank. After seven years' wanderings they are said to have returned to their original home. This was the first appearance of gip sies in Switzerland. These Peculiar Beauty Treatment A musical-comedy actress, who prides herself on the beauty of her llfnbs, suspends herself dally from a cord fastened across her room, and suffers a sister professional to work her legs pumphandle for ten or twelve minutes.

The note to be marked is, say, the 25 silver certificate. bearing the vig nette of an Indian chief in full re gnlia of feathers and trappings and presenting a full-face view. With the aid of a pin the secret service man makes two punctures in the bill di rectly in the j pupils of the Indian's eyes. To the casual and sometimes even critical Inspector of the note these pin-pricks are invisible. If raised to the light, however, the bill will distinctly reveal them. The markings are complicated by the following process: The pinpoint la applied in the "twist" of the large figure 5 of the two ppper corners of the note. These tiny twists do not Appear on the "necks" of the two fig ures 5 that are on both sides of the bottom of the note. The note is now pierced again, this time at the ends of th<j scrolls on each side of the word "five" In the lower center of the bill. The marking Is now complete. In secret It is exhibited to one or more persons for purposes of identification and is then placed in the till or money drawer to which the suspected person has access. ''It Is said that the pin-pricks will re main perfect for some time. When such bills are produced in court and their markings are explained under oath conviction is practically certain. —Literary Digest RED; EMBLEM OF DOMINATION Has From Tims Immemorial Been Sig nificant of High Authority—Blue Called Cloak of Heaven. Of all bright colors red Ms the favor ite among primitive peoples. It ex cites to violence in flags and uniforms. Red Is the emblem of domination in politics and religion. The cardinal and the doctor of divinity have their red robes. On the other hand, red has replaced green In one respect as a restful color. At great state functions out of doors In India, such as a durbar, red umbrel las are preferred to green as an effec tive sunshade. Blue has a minor influence. Curious ly enough, It appears only to affect the cat In the same way that red affects other animals. Humanity has a respect for blue, which is the cloak of heaven.

Ireland's Round Towers. No one knows exactly when or why the round towers in Ireland were built, but some believe that the druids erected them as watch towers and places to which to go for safety In time of danger. A good many of the towers have the tops broken down and those which show the cone tops Intact have mostly been restored. There is no door on the ground, the doors be ing purposely built at about 10 or 15 feet from the ground and were reached by ladders. After the people had climbed Inside they drew their ladders up after them and thus were out of reach of the Danes who frequently invaded the country. The tiny windows of these towers are far np toward the top also. Abont 80 round towers remain In Ire land, but only a few of them are per fect According to one authority, they were probably bulU between the 9th and 18th centuries. The Word 8quaw. The word squaw, the term for an Indian woman, is said to have been taken from the language of a band of Indians in New England known as the Narragansets, and is probably an ab breviation of the word eskwaw. Years ago the word was carried over the length and breadth ff Canada and the United States, and came to be used even by the Indians on the western reservations, who have taken It from the whites. A "squaw man" is an Indian who does woman's work; also a white man married to an Indian woman and who lives with her people. After the squaw have been named, sqnaw berry, the partridge berry; sqnaw flower, the plant known as trilllum ereettnm; squaw mint, the American pennyroyal; squaw winter, used In parts of the Canadian Northwest to designate a mild beginning of winter. / Cockneys Adaptable.

This was made certain that after noon when the senate, by a vote of 41-18 adopted the sine die adjourn ment adopted by the house. The senators, who fought adjourn ment, were led by Senator Borah of Idaho. WASHINGTON. Nov. 21.—The second session of the slkty-flfth con gress was scheduled to come to a close with the end of today's session. The sine die adjournment resolution, when passed will bring to an end a session whose volume of leglstation was exceeded only by that of the first session of the same congress. A faint whisper that the adjourn ment might be blocked was heard in the capitol lobbies today. This was due to the changed attitude of some Republicans as a result of Pre sident Wilson's announcement that he will attend the opening sessions of the peace conference. Democratic leaders asserted, how ever, that any coup planned by the Republicans to postpone adjourn ment would not succeed. The president's announcement of his projected trip abroad has had* somewhat the same effect on the op position in congress that his appeal to the voters had late in October. At : that time an adjournment over elec tion day had been arranged, but the plan was entirely upset when Re publicans decided to take advantage ,of the opportunity they thought they saw for making political speeches on the floor of the senate. The speech making was circumvented, however, by the Democratic majority, which compelled an adjournment from day to day without transacting any busi ness. During Monday's session Republi cans and Democrats reached an agreement ito adjourn sine die to day. A canvass of the Republicans present showed eighteen in favor, five against, and three doubtful. Several of the eighteen who favored adjournment on Monday said today that the president's announcement presents "a changed situation." Senator Watson, of Indiana; Senator Sherman of Illinois and many other Republicans have given notice of their intention of addressing the sen ate on the president's trip. They be- . lieve the congress should remain in session continuously until the begin ning of the short session, December 2, to afford opportunity for critical discussioh. The Democrats do not desire this. Majority Leader Kitchin was scheduled to present the Adjourn ment resolution in the house this af ternoon, and after having it passed by the house, have it brought up for consideration In the senate later in the day. The naval affairs committee of the house and the appropriations com mittee will continue hearings on the appropriation bills now before them whether congress adjourns or not. 'me senate judiciary committee has not decided whether the brewers' in vestigation shall continue if congress is not in session. Adjournment today, would bring to a close a session that has proved one of the most remarkable in Ameri can history. Mors than 236,000, 000,000 in war appropriations has been made. First in importance among the measures passed was the declaration of war on Austria. Among important war measures, were the draft amendment, extend ing the draft ages from 18 to 45: the war finance corporation bill; the railway control bill! the telephone and telegraph control extension; the fourth liberty loan authorized; hous ing bill, the Overman bill authorized the consolidation o fexecutive depart ment and the vocational rehabilita tion bill. 4 Many important domestic meas ures, all having indirect bearing on the conduct of the war also were passed at the present session. ♦ IDAHO TECH STUDENTS WILL RECEIVE CREDIT FOR FULL YEAR'S WORK The Idaho Technical institute plans, In order to make up the time lost during the influenza epidemic, to shorten both semesters so that the burden will not fall upon the first alone.
