Oli ver ranks with Sunday, Chapman and Torrey. Wherever he goes thousands flock to hear him. He is different from most evangelists. He does not preacli sermons; he delivers lectures, believing that the mission of the evan gelist is to give out Intellectual as well as moral and spiritual inspection and reformation. With all his logic and philosophical reasoning, he is thoroughly evangelical and delightful ly humorous. As a convincing speak er, he is second to none. Dr. Oliver is a man of splendid presence and striking personality and is six feet four inches tall. Two noted singers will accompany Dr. Oliver and a local chorus of four hundred voices will be organized. Something of the wonderful per sonality of Dr. Oliver can best be conveyed to the Twin Falls people by the following excerpts from the Xen ia Gazette, of Ohio, in which city Dr. Oliver is just closing meetings. "Yesterday passed as the yeatest day of the big tabernacle, meeting. Three- times Dr. Oliver addressed great audiences and at each service many hit the trail with the intention of an absolute and uncondition sur render to Jesus Christ. More enthus iasm and interest was manifested at each service and the third week of the campaign opens very auspiciously. The great feature of the day was the afternoon meeting for men only. "Out of his marveolus vocabulary and wealth of illustrations, Dr. Oliver formulated and drove home with smashing effect an awful arraignment of sin in the lives of men. In a schol ~arly and scientific manner the social evils of the country were held up be fore the men In all their causes and results. "Dr. Oliver's method Is not to stam pede the crowd for the sake of num bers. He works for clean cut résulta. When decisions were called for, the sawdust laisles actually became trails. About 180 men came In response to the call for unconditional surrender. "Last night the tabernacle was pack ed. Dr. Oliver took as a text "Ye must be Born Again." Dr. Oliver's theolo gy does not run parallel with that of modern teachers who maintain that each man has a spark of the Divine within hts breast, and so they preach development instead of regeneration, and attainment Instead of atonement. According to Dr. Oliver If a man is to become actually a member of God's family be must be born into It. It cannot be brought about by a process of cultivation or development." of to » !

Portland, Ore. — At the opening session here Tuesday of the first an nual convention of the Anti-Saloon League of Oregon, a letter from Sena tor William Rorali of Idaho, was read, in which he pledged his support to a national prohibition amendment. In his letter Senator Borah said: "I have been forced to the conclu sion that the only effective way to deal with the liquor question is by and through the action of the national government. I say forced to this con clusion because on general principles I am much opposed to the national government takiug over any work which can be done by and through and within the states. The liquor in terests have nationalized the question and experience shows there can be no really effective method of treating it except from a national standpoint." Others in Line. R. P. Hutton, superintendent of the league, reported similar pledges from United States Senators Chamberlain and Lane and Representatives Hawley and Sinnot of Oregon. At the business session E. A. Baker was elected president; Rev. W. O. Shank, vice president; J. J. Ross sec retary and E. Quackenbush treasurer. All are from Portland. Superintendent Hutton in his ad dress and report said the foremost work was to secure in congress "a solid dry" delegation and to elect state legislators who would ratify any na tional amendment passed on the issue. Law enforcement in the states now dry or going dry is another ambition toward which the league was urged to concentrate. Governor Moses Alexander of Idaho was the principal speaker Tuesday night. His (topic was "prohibition Boosts Business."

This season there have been a great many inquiries as to whether the law would be violated with packing pota toes with hay or straw at the present time and G. M.

COAL es the SENATOR BORAH ON THE TARIEE Lays Abuses to Selfishness of Different Sections. RAW MATERIALS MUST BE PRO TECTED IN NEW ENGLAND Meutern Farmers Cannot Prosper Un til Present Discrimination Is Elim inated. Washington — Since his return to Washington, after making a num ber of speeches iu Massachusetts, Sen ator Bo rail of Idaho, lias received many letters from Massachusetts Re publicans commending his stand on the tariff, and especially commending him for denouncing the idea popular in certain New England circles, that a protective tariff should provide for free raw materials. The senator, go ing into the heart of the region where the raw material doctrine has been strongest, declared against such tariff legislatiou as being discriminating in favor of the manufacturer and against the interest of the western farmer and producer. "We will either have a policy which applies to the whole country or we will have none at all," said the sen ator. Message From the West. When Senator Borali went to Mas sachusetts, prior to taking part in the campaign, he made an address at Boston, widely quoted at the time, md was asked in the course of that ad dress to deliver to the people of Mas sachusetts a message from the people ol' the great west. He did not make that his entire topic, but in the midst of his speech, paused to deliver such a message and directed it to tlie free, raw material idea. It was this declar" ation that brought forth general com mendation from New England Repub licans. This is what tlie senator then said : "Years ago we began in this coun try a policy which had for its object the building up in the United States a great home market. It was argued that when once this market was es tablished it would furnish a firmer, more reliable and better market for the products of the farm. No one was more loyal to the policy of build ing up and protecting our manufac turing centers in order to establish this home market than the middle west and western farmer. He voted for it for years before it was possible for him to realize any benefit but be cause in his broad far-seeing belief lie felt sure tlie time would come when the market would be'established and he would have its benefit.

"Finally this great home piarket was established, the great manufac turing centers were built up and thou sands and millions of people were .here to be fed from the western farms.

CHECK ARTIST MAKES ESCAPE Local Merchant Loses Large Sum Saturday. SMOOTH STRANGER BUYS SMALL BILL OF GOODS Check fur Eighty Dollars of Filer Rancher Proves a Clear Forgery When Banked. Cashing a check lute Saturday night for a comparative stranger because the signature was that of a well known Filer rancher, a local mer chant is out eighty dollars in casli and merchandise and the authorities are looking lor a well dressed young man •who got away with the deal. Ap proaching one of the clerks in a local store the check artist purchased goods amounting to about eleven dollars and asked if he could cash a check. Tlie proprietor questioning the young man was told that he had worked for C. N. Lloyd, the rancher whose name was signed to the check. The check was cashed and was presented for clearing at the hank late Monday. On Tuesday it was returned to the merchant with the statement that it was not Lloyd's signature. Although the description of the man has been sent out all over the west, there is little hope of catching him unless in some future time he may attempt the same trick in another city. LACKED NECESSARY PERMIT Ini Brackett Fined $25 and Costs in the Probate Court. For bringing four head of hogs to the Vandenbark farm on the Salmon tract from Rosewortli without getting the proper permit, Ira Brackett was fined $25 and costs by Probate Judge Shank one day this week. Accord ing to a proclamation issued last spring by Governor Alexander, no hogs can be brought to the Twin Falls tract or the Salmon tract, with out a permit from the proper official allowing that tlie animals are free from tlie cholera. This Mr. Brackett j failed to do, hence the fine. Dr. W. j A. Sullivan, who has charge of the j government work in southern Idaho, Ï reports that cholera has broken out I on the Vandenbark since the four hogs were brought there hut is now under control.

Nliort Line Soon to Have I Cars for Shippers. Ment) of I file public utilities commission has j been given assurances by the Ore gon Short Line railroad through its cornpanfm reîieve "he ""graV' car j shortage in southern Idaho are work- | ing out satisfactorily and it should : be relieved within a comparatively i short time, state the Capital News. This shortage has been serious. The I public utilities commission has taken j the necessary precautions prior to the movement of the crops to see that any [ shortage would be met. The closing ; of the Panama canal, however, re sulted in the movement of grain over land and caught the rail roads un prepared for such an emergency. The result was a car shortage. Probably the most serious car shortage which lias ever confronted railroads of the intermountain coun try is now at its height. The Ore gon Short Line and the Denver & Rio Grande are both short on cars. The Oregon Short Line cannot move the great grain crops along its lines. For the first time in the history of the Utah Sugar industry beets are being loaded into box cars. The gondolas used in the beet trade are in great demand in the east on account of the heavy steel and munitions shipments. The closing of the Panama canal has forced the Oregon Short Line to send most of its big box cars east and the railroads are holding them and paying demurrage in order to give transportation facilities to their pa trons. The Denver & Rio Grande is short of cars for the Utah coal fields. It was thought there would be sufficient cars on the Denver & Rio Grande to handle the coal traffic from Emery and Carbon counties, but the road failed to get all it needed. The cool weather of the past few days has re sulted in a big increase in orders and the operating department is getting all coal cars unloaded as rapidly as possible and sending them to the coal fields. In order that the Wyoming fields shall have all the cars necessary to move the coal traffic, the Union Pa cific system will seek bids on 1000 steel cars within 10 days. The heavy local and short-haul traffic of the -Union Pacific and Denver & Rio Grande is held responsible in a great measure by thefee roads for the car shortage.

There is little doubt that the auditorium will be filled to over flowing to hear these two noted men. Captain Hobson, the hero of the Merrlmac will need no introduction to the people of Twin Falls. While a member of the national congress, he introduced an amendment to the constitution of the United States mak ing the whole Union dry by consti tutional amendment. While the amend ment failed to receive the necessary two-thirds majority in tlie house and senate it did receive a majority of all votes cast, thus showing that a ma jority of the house and senate were in favor of nation-wide prohibition of the liquor traffic. speaking promptly at eight o'clock and the public is cordially invited to he pres ent, admission free.

If the Twin Falls-Salmon River I .and & Water company or their suc cessors, the bondholders, are found to be liable for the damages sustained by the farmers on the tract this year, it is estimated that damages claimed of them will aggregate the big total of a quarter of a million dollars. It has been suggested from several sour ces that while it may be impossible to collect actual cash on any judgments that may be secured, that such judg ments can be made to apply against the purchase price of the lands. The members of the Association at a well-attended meeting at Berger Saturday afternoon, Indicated their desire to have tlie Association super vise the prosecution of the damages its members have sustained; in ac cordance with which decision the di rectors of the Association are look ing into the matter thoroughly. The meeting unanimously approved the recent findings of the irriga- 4 tion commission's recommendations, and approved the proposition of send ing a delegation to Boise along with the delegation proposed by the Desert Entrymen's Association, to urge the Land Board to proceed along the lines laid out by the commission. The sentiment of the meeting was plainly manifested several times to carry the Association's litigation to the very end, and the proposition of proceeding against the management of the Canal company in ouster proceed ings was unanimously approved.—Hol lister Herald. j on 2, FORMER RESIDENT DEAD Mrs. George H.
