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
A goose egg was all that was com

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

I,he ninth the outcome was certain
though the Rupert team did not" give
up the struggle, and added two in the

Delegates Unanimous in Pledg
ing for Ohio Candidate.
W. P. Guthrie of Twin Falls
Eleced as Alternate for the
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
John W. Hart,
C. C. Cavanah, Boise, Ada county.
E. M. Height., Weiser, Washington
B. F. O'Neil, Wallace, Shoshone
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
W. L, Giflord, Moscow, Latah county
W. P. Guthrie, Twin Falls, Twin
R. J. Haves, Pocatello, Bannock
Peter G. Johnson, BlacKfoot, Bing
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
At, the meeting of the state central
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.
