The Hubert base ball team put in its appearance in Twin Falls last Sunday, trusting that its prestige of last season would again give it vic tory over our lqcal boys, but the sultfailed to satisfy its expectation. From the professional standooint the game was a corned}' and would be rather umnsteresting if it bad not been for terrific slugging of the ball on the part of the locals. They pounded the high ones and lifted the low ones out of sight until the score looked like the result of a match game in Boyville. The Twin Falls rooters have not lost their love for the game and turned out a big crowd to see the first real battle of the season. Rupert started the stick work in the first inning when Osborn made them one score on a hit and errors. Twin Falls made four by bunched hits as sisted by the errors of Rupert. Rupert in the second rather startled the natives and chalked up four runs before the boys could recover their surprise. Twin Falls was blanked. A goose egg was all that was com ing to the visitors in third and they took it with good grace. Twin Falls through the hits of Farrell and Weaver added lw) more to give them the lead over their opponents by one score. One score was allowed the visitors through errors while the Twins gath ered in four. From this inning until I,he ninth the outcome was certain though the Rupert team did not" give up the struggle, and added two in the sixth and one in the ninth. Twin Falls added 15 in three innings by a burst of bits that fairly tired out _ their oppon ents.

W. P. Guthrie of Twin Falls Eleced as Alternate for the Judicial District. sent to the national convention, in Wallace, Tuesday, May 12th, With rousing enthusiasm and by un animous voice, Idaho Republicans in their state convention in this city today named six delegates and six alternates to the national convention in Chicago aLd instructed them to use all honar able means to bring about the Domina tion of William H. Taft as the Repub lican candidate to succeed Theodore Roosevelt as president of the United States. The delegates are: James H. Brady, Pocatello, Bannock county. John W. Hart, Menan, Fremont county. C. C. Cavanah, Boise, Ada county. E. M. Height., Weiser, Washington county. B. F. O'Neil, Wallace, Shoshone county. Warren Truitt, Moscow Latah county. These delegates were selected from judicial districts in conformity with a plan practically agreed upon last night when it seemed evident that Senators Hevburn and Borah would not ask to order that the honors might be passed around more generally among the Re publicans of the state not in office. This morning it developed positively that neither of the two senators would be candid .\f,es for places on the delega tion and the judicial distticts tlién pro ceeded to caucus and decide finally up on their delegates and alternates. As the fourth district asked only for an alternate each of the six other districts received one delegate. The alternates selected are as follows: Alfred Page, Waidner, Shoshone coud'.v. W. L, Giflord, Moscow, Latah county W. P. Guthrie, Twin Falls, Twin Falls county. R. J. Haves, Pocatello, Bannock county. Peter G. Johnson, BlacKfoot, Bing ham county. F. E. Fisk, Parma, Canyen County. The greatest harmony prevailed in alt of the,deliberations of the caucus and the committees and in the conven tion i-self. The vote was unanimous on all points and the greatest enthusi asm prevailed. At, the meeting of the state central committee this purpose of making recommenda tions for a temporary organization. State Chairman Brady a-dted to be re lieved from the chairmanship, statine that it might not be pri per for him to hold the position in view of his candi dacy for the governorship, but he was prevailed upon by the committee to hold the position until the Boise con yentionin September, wheu the nam ing ol a new chairman would be in or der. Colonel Thomas It. Hamer was was recommended as temporary chair man and Charles !.. Heilman was latei made permanent chairman. Features of convention were ad dresses by State Chairman Brady, Colonel Hamer, Mr. Heitman and Joseph V. Fallon. The sessions were short, less than three hours being taken in all owing to the unanimity of sentiment that pre vailed on all points. The opera house was elaborately dec orated for the meeting, a feature being a mining scene typical of the Coeur 'm Alene district, at the hack of the stage, where a tunnel and ore dump were shown with a dummy figure at work with an electric drill and another tak ing out ore in a wheelbarrow. The design was remarkably well executed and aroused much comment, Patrio tic music for the convention was furn ished by the Wallace baud. Following is the platform in full as adopted by the Republican state con vention at Wallace "The Republicans of Idaho in con vention assembled hereby renew their allegiance to the great national party, the party of protection of American labor and industries, whose record of achievements began with the adminis tration of Abraham Lincoln and was continued up to the present moment. We declare ourselves unalterably in favor of Republican principle of pro tection as applied to raw materials as well as to manufactured articles pro duced in the United States, We here by endorsed the honest, wise and cour ageous administration of Thaodore Roofevelt, which in the benefits be stowed on the people have been sui passed by none and equalled by a few presiding administrations. We com mend the masterly ability and tireless vigilance with which our distinguished fellow citizens. Senators Weldon B. Heyburn and William E. Borah and Congressman Burton L. French, have represented the people of Idaho in the congress of the United States. "We hereby commend the present administration for the successful man ner in which the state's business has been transacted and which is largely a factor in the development, progress aod prosperity of Idaho. "We rejoice that the party which gave Lincoln and Roosevelt to the na tion is now calling as its leader William H.Taft, a statesman and a patriot, admirably fitted by exalted character and wide experience to become the chief magistrate of the Ameri can people and we pledge the Idaho delegation to the national convention to use all honorable means to bring the about his nomination."—Statesman.
