Let's all write to them, no matter
whether we are personally ac
quainted with them or not. They
are our fellows, and they will be
mighty glad to hear from anybody
in thtf good old U. S. A.
France, Oct. 22, 1918.
Dear Brother Max:
This is my first opportunity to
write you within the last thirty days,
as we have been going over the top
most of our time both day and night.
We surely have the Germans going ■
double time now.
If there is such a thing as h
sure have been there; however I !
think we have the hardest work be- i
hind us. I didn't have pny of my
clothes ofT for thirty days. Al! we
had to lay in was a big shell hole
and It was raining almost all of the
time. We didn't have a slicker or
anything else but ammunition and
I got six holes shot in my pack
and belt and got thru without a sin
gle scratch. Talk about hard work,
if you got to work twenty hours a
day and get one meal you can con
sider yourself lucky, as I am no jok
ing. I would give $ 10.00 for a meal
in a good old U. S. hotel.
We are ,on our way back to the,
front again, hoping this will be the
last time as I think the Germans are
tail in by now.
As an aftermath to the suits filed
last fall by W. R. Hamilton against
Non-partisan league candidates, in
an attempt to keep them off the Dem
o cratic ticket in the primaries, Will
iam G. Scholtz, H. F. Samuels, O. ti.
Zuck, William A. Fife, W. P. Rice,
B. A. Cummings, L. I. Purcell and
C. R. Jeppesen filed suit Tuesday
against the American Surety com
pany of New York, in an attempt to
collect $1000 for attorney fees al
legedly incurred by the leaguers in
fighting their cases.
It is cited in the complaint filed
Tuesday that W. R. Hamilton, in
dividually and as chairman of the
statd central committee of the Demo
cratic party of the State of Idaho,
sought to restrain and enjoin the
plaintiffs, who appeared as defend
ants in the suit filed by Hamilton
last fall, from having their names
filed with the secretary of state as
candidates for the respective offices
they sought, and to restrain and en
join the certifying of the names of
these plaintiffs as defendants from
being placed on the offlcAl ballot at
the primaries.
When the plaintiff W. B. Hamil
ton was awarded judgment .in the
district court of Weiser against the
defendants, he was required to give
an undertaking to pay the plaintiffs,
who were then defendants, such
costs, damages and reasonable coun
sel fees, not exceeding $1000, as the
plaintiffs should incur in the action
or should sustain by reason of the
injunction of the court, provided the
court should finallv decide that said
W. R. Hamilton was not entitled to
the iniunrtion granted him by the
lower court.
Final proceedings decided the writ
of injunction was wrongfully issued,
and was ordered dismissed, where
upon the defendants to that suit, who
appear as plaintiffs in the suit filed
Tuesday applied for attorney fees in
the sum of $1000, but were refused,
they declare, by the plaintiff Hamil
ton and by his surety, the American
Surety company of New York. The
suit was then filed to compel the
payment of the attorney fees as de

At the recent Iowa State Fair 111
excellent baby beeves were exhibited
by 99 members of the boys' and
girls' clubs of the State. Charles
Ryan, of Irwin, with his grade An

championship, while this same calf
also won tre premier honors in the
grade Angus division. Charles's
prize money amounted to $75.
ter the show the baby beeves were
sold at auction, the animals averag

for an average price of $18.30 a
hundredweight. Each calf brought
an average of $i77.08, or a total for
the lot of $16,823,<3. At the Sioux

Four thousand sheep have already
been placed on California farms in a
campaign recently initiated by the
farm bureau counties o fthat state.
iae farn bureaus will take large
bands of sheep from the grass ranges
aid place them in small "Liberty
flocks" on individual farms,
grass ranges have been so depleted,
owing to two successive dry seasonB,
that many of the sheep would die,
due to pastrue shortage, if some
other provision were not made for
them. "Liberty flocks" is the proper
designation for these bands which
will provide food and clothing for
our .army. /
How the soldier views the enemy
is one of the paradoxical, but cheer
ing manifestations of the war. Tho
he has seen hell let loose he can
speak of his brutal foe with a calm
that is bewildering to the civilian.
The blood has often boiled as we
have read of wanton destruction of
property and pitiless cruelty to peo
ple helpless in the German's hand.
An intimate picture of the French
soldier's attitude toward the Ger
man is given by Dr. Karl Reiland of
St. George's church, New York. Dr.
Reiland was asked by the Red Cross
■ to go before the men in the canton
! their families would receive from the
i bed Cross while they were absent in
France. He felt, says the New York
Sun, that "it was not right for any
man to appear before men who were
going into the inferno of the battle
field unless he, too, knew something
of what they were to go thru." So
he has visited the battle-line from
Soissons to Rheims, and his testi
mony on the particular point we men
tion is valuable for those who hold
bitterness in their hearts toward a
defeated foe, particularly those of
them who were helpless instruments
in the hands of ruthless leaders.
He says:
"In spite of what France has suf
fered at the hands of Germany, her
soldiers have the least hatred in
their hearts and display the most
kindness toward the German prison
ers of any .of the allied soldiers
Why, when I was talking to the little
Boche in the hospital a French gen
eral who was passing thru the ward
came up, looked down at him, patted
his blond head, and sighed with a
shake of his head, 'Too young! too
young for war!'
"I saw another French officer lift
a wounded German up and take a
pillow from under his head because
the pillow was too high, and when
the ambulance moved or went over a
rut, the German's head would be
bumped. He held the man's head on
his arm until the stretcher was low
ered, when he put the pillow back.
You can't put down a spirit as divine
as that."
That this can be the spirit in face
of Germany's military role is mat
ter for wonder. The thing that is
overpowered at last is not changed,
as is shown in tjie dispatch dated
November 11 to the New York Times
by Walter Ruranty, concerning the
fate in the very last hours of the
struggle of the city that had been
the kaiser's headquarters:
"Even in its death agony German
militarism clung fast to its principle
of hideous savagery. All this morn
ing the German batteries have been
pouring a deluge of high explosives
and poison-gas on Mezierees, where
20,000 civilians—men, women and
children—are penned like trapt rats
without possibility of escape.
"Words can not depict the plight
of the victims of this crowning Ger
an atrocity. Westward the broad
ream of the Meuse cuts them off
from an army of their countrymen,
whose soldiers, maddened to frenzy,
are giving their lives without a
thought in the effort to reenforce
under the pitiless hail-storm their
scanty detachments op the eastern
For the moment no other
succor is possible—
"At six last night the torment of
Mezieres began. Incendiary wounded
were evacuated to the shelter of the
cellars in which the whole popula
tion was crouching. That was not
enough to appease the bitter blood
lust of the Germans in defeat.
Cellars may give protection from Are
or melinite, but they are worse than
death-traps against the heavy fumes
of poisonous gas.
"So the murderous order was
given to-day, and faithfully the Ger
man gunners carried it out. In a
town that has been protected by
miles of invaded territory from war's
horrors there were no gas-masks for
the civilians and no chemicals that
might permit them to save lives with
improvised head-coverings. Here
and there, perhaps, a mother fixes
a mask, found as by merical on the
body of a dead enemy, across her
son's face, that he, at, least, may es
cape the death she knows will take
her. Others may pass the rhell
barrier and reach, stunned and torn,
the comparative shelter of the
neighboring woods, but they will
be fortunate exceptions. Th° great
majority must-submit to martyrdom
—final testimony that civilization is
a thing apart from the unclean bar
barism of the Borhe."

LONDON.—Shocking stories of
their treatment are told by many
British prisoners who have reached
England from Germany. Unfortun
ate Britishers wao arrived at Fried
erichaselde, Prussia, after hostilities
ceased had a hard lot. They had been
taken prisoners shortly before or
during the British advance and were
compelled to work behind the lines,
being driven from place to place "like
something lower than beasts."
Of one working party of 1800 only
282 came into Frlederichsfelde.

prisoners at the camp at Loeken, two

PARIS.—At a meeeting prelimin
ary to the sitting of the delegates to
the peace conference. It is announced,
committees will be appointed to
study different phases of the prob
lem which will be involved, and pre
sent reports to the c onferes whose
deliberations will by this means be
of a more definite character,
conference, It is believed, will last
for three months and it is not e ex
pected that a treaty will be signed
before April.

Expected That Half of the Main Fight
ing Strength of Our Navy Will
Go Into a Reorganzed Pacific
Ocean Fleet
Washington. — With the passing of
German sea power, the impelling
strategic reason for keeping the main
strength of the American navy mussed
in the Atlantic ocean no longer exists.
Naval officers here anticipate, there
fore, that the fleet will be divided
when the war emergency has passed
and substantially one-half of the main
fighting strength of the navy go into
a reorganized Pacific fleet.
There are indications about the de
partment that plans are already afoot
for the reviving of the old European
squadron. With the Increased respon
sibilities of the United States in Eu
rope, due to the war and the expand
ing merchant marine, It is regarded as
probable that a definite naval force
will be maintained in European waters
hereafter and it is possible that step.?
may be tuken toward estifbllshing
limited base facilities for the upkeep
of the force. The navy now has a
station at the Azores and officers be
lieve an arrangement with the Portu
guese government, under which the
station will be continued for some
"time, at least, is to be expected.
In discussing the future of the fleet,
officers realize that the creation of a
league of nations may produce new
considerations. As the United States is
sponsor for the proposal for a world
league, it is assumed that a concrete
plan of action has been mapped out
lor President Wilson by his military
lid risers. This would include the pro
posal of an organization under which
the combined fleets would operate to
police the world.
Man Convicted of Murder is Given
Life Term by Governor.
Sacramento.—Governor William D.

tence of death imposed on Thomas J.
Mooney for murder growing out of the
preparedness day bomb explosion in
San Francisco on July 22, 1916, when
Vere killed and forty
In a lengthy state

others injured,
ment given to the public outlining his
reasons for commuting the sentence,
Governor Stephens said Mooney's case
largely paralleled that of Warren K.
Billings, another bomb case defendant,
who is now serving life sentence in the
Folsom, Cal., penitentiary.
The governor said there were certain
features connected with the case which
convinced him that the sentence of
death should not be executed. For this
reason and because of the "earnest re
quest" of President Wilson for com
mutation, he did not believe that the
extreme penalty should be paid. Gov
ernor Stephens said he accepted "full
responsibility for the wisdom and justi
fication for the action."

Here Is a story told by an Indianapo
lis woman:
"The other evening as I was walk
ing over the long bridge thnt extends
back of the Union station in Baltimore,
my eye, searching for something inter
esting, caught sight of a small news
boy—just a little, dirty-faced chap
that one does not look at twice. What
especially drew my attention to him,
however, was something unusual in
the way he drew out one of his papers,
folded it into very small compass, and
tossed it over the railing into the
freight yard below. My eyes involun
tarily followed the direction of the pa
per, and as I peered over the balus
trade I saw a stirring scene, numbers
of big army trucks and scores of 'our
boys' bustling round busily and cheer
ily unloading and reloading them. One
of the soldiers was in the act of wav
ing his hand in thanks to the boy
whose paper he had just picked up.
"Much interested, I moved over to
the little fellow. Under cover of buy
ing a paper and getting change, I pnt
a casual question: 'How do you ex
pect to get your money from that sol
dier down there?' My little friend
looked disgusted. 'I gave it to him P
he instantly retorted. Then he turned
to gaze again on the fascinating scene
below, and added very softly: 'He's
doin' more'n a cent's worth for us.'

"Does it ever fall?" finally quivered
the novice as the airplane climbed
higher and still higher.
"Only when I let it do so," answered
the airman. "Now and then I drop her
backward. Here we go!"
On the backward descent, a mile or
more, the passenger clung to the pilot
with both arms and never breathed.
At last the machine resumed IDs hori
zontal traveling.
"Great heavens!" gasped the novice
with relief.
"Say, look here; didn't you say you
wished to flit on high like a gilding
sunbeam?" complained the aviator.
"Yes," admitted the passenger.
"Then shut up. You're going to get
your wish."
Suddenly the airplane dived and

Hold No Grudge.
Time brings many changes. Take
for Instance the fellows who volun
teered their services when war was
declared and who have since been pro
moted to be commissioned officers.
Some of these men tolled in shops and
offices and had to toe the mark for
clerks or foremen to get fired. Then
came the draft and these same clerks
and .foremen became doughboys and
now take orders from their former of
fice boys and employees. Some humor
ous stories have come to light from
the nearby cantonments, but let it be
said jo the credit of the former office
boys, they have not made life un
bearable for their superiors, although
they have had the opportunity to do
so. As an illustration of this the oth
er day a doughboy was' serving mess
to his top sergeant. As he did so he
spilled some dressing from the salad.
The sergeant noticed this and smiled.
"Just about a year ago I was serving
you with soup," said the sergeant, at the
same time mentioning the hotel where
he had worked as serving man, "and
you gave me the devil because It was
cold. I'm not going to kick because
you spilled the dressing. I'm going to
treat you right." And that is the gen
eral spirit throughout the camps.
Boring Pole Hole*.
The tiresome and time consuming
work of digging holes for telegraph
and electric service poles Is now at an
end, says Scientific American. At least,
there has been evolved a gasoline
driven earth-boring machine which
makes an average boring time per hole
of one and one-half to two minutes.
The equipment is mounted on a horse
drawn truck and is operated by two
men. In ordinary soil it maintains an
average of 100 holes per day, each
measuring five feet deep by 24 inches
In diameter. The equipment consists
of a truck, which carries a gasoline en
gine, driving mechanism and a huge
auger which is slowly rotated and fed
| downward. The augers are furnished
in sizes from 2 to 24 inches.
Disdain Western Finery.
In reply to an inquiry from an
American firm as to the demand here
for luce goods and embroideries, it
can be stated, reports the American
consul at Yokohama, that as the Japa
nese women cling very tenaciously to
their style,.of dress and as no use is
made of lace or embroideries either in
their dress or home furnishings. It is
improbable that any considerable mar
ket can be developed in Japan for
American-made lace goods or embroid
eries. The demand would be limited
to the foreign residents here, who now
number about 6,000, exclusive of Chi
nese, and to such goods as are not be
ing m:.,iufuctured in Japan.

You are not writing to many
soldiers over there or anywhere else.
You are too busy. But that doesn't
take off the longing the soldier feels
for letters from folks at home. If
you haven't time to write, the editor
will take time. But send the ad
dresses of the boys in France or any
where in the service. The new regu
lations do not allow sending the
newspaper, but everybody from Per
shing down advises writing to the
boys, so write we will.
If It <s too much trouble to send
the address by maiirget the address
In your hand and ring 4 5J; that's
the reporters' room at the Republi
can office and just say, ' 'Here is
an address for you," and read it into
the phone till the reporter can read
it back at you to see if it is copied
right and that soldier boy •will re
ceive two letters that we kuow of.
We will publish his address, and lie
may receive a flock of letters. They
say it i 3 very trying on a good soldier
boy to attend mail call day after day
and see tho others receive their joy
and not get anything himself. The
soldier needs assurance from home,
and a letter touches the exact spot, tf
