Former Buhl Mayor Tells of What is
Proposed in the New Enterprise in
This State,
"Bids for a modern packing plant
are being opened by our people in
Pocatello today," said E. W. Byrne,
former mayor of Buhl, who was here
Saturday in the interest of the Fales
Huston Packing company, of which he
is the purchasing agent,
tention is to furnish a market for the
surplus hogs that now go to Los
Angeles and Omaha," he continued,
"paying a .better price and saving
time for the shipper. It takes from a
week to ten days to take a carload of
hogs to Los Angeles, and get back,
while it is possible to go to Pocatel
lo with a load one day and return the
next. If we get what we want we
can pay more for them, on account
of the closeness of the market. Hogs
are now shipped to Los Angeles or
"Our in
Omaha and the product is shipped
back. This extra freight charge both
ways can be saved.
"It is possible for farmers to get
their hogs on the market in from six
to eight months. Feeding them on al
falfa with a little grain of any kind,
they can be kept fat at slight cost
and placed on the market early with
a very large profit. In my opinion,
however, and investigation by experts
confirms this opinion, the gest ham
and bacon is produced by a mixture
of peas and barley. The product of
this feed is superior to that produced
by corn or by any other food.
"There are small packing plants
over the Twin Falls tract in this city,
Buhl and other places. It is our in
tention to co-operation with them in
such a manner as will be mutually
benilioial. The packing industry in
this country is in its infancy and the
Pocatello plant will till a long telt
want by taking care of the surplus
which has been heretofore shipped
away. Many farmers have taken
stock in the company after the most
searching investigation, and others are
yet subscribing but whether they are
interested in that feature of the busi
ness or not we want them to investi
gate our plan and find out what we
want so that we may supply it. I shall
be purchasing agent and expect to
meet the people, but we would be
glad to answer any questions sent to
us at Pocatello. The new plant will
be finished and in operation by June
Structure is Credit to the Town. Old
Theatre to be Changed to Up-to-Date
Banc« Hall.
FILER—The New Gem theatre will
open this evening at 8 o'clock with a
Mutual masterpiece of five reels and
a Keystone comic production. The
prices for the opening night have been
placed at 26 cents and 16 cents. Show
night hereafter will be on Tuesdays,
Thursdays and Saturdays. The new
theatre is generally conceded to be
ahead of the town at present, but
buildings ahead of the town tend to
induce the town to move to catch up.
It is certainly a fine building and one
that reflects credit on J. W. Tanner, its
owner. The movie shows are put on
by Chas. J. Kalina, who has charge of
the Rex theatre at Buhl.
The last show in the old theatre was
given Saturday night and work has
already begun on changing it Into a
dance hall. The stage will he taken
out and a platform erected for the
orchestra in the middle of the floor.
When It is finished, it will open as in
its new role with a grand military
[ball, which the Buhl military company
will open with a drill. This event
will be one of the biggest social af
fairs of the year.
Because he failed to move his tele
phone promptly on changing his place
of business from his old stand at 219
Fourth avenue south, to the more com
modious quarters in the old Falls
laundry stand on Third avenue south
and Second street, E. Coleman missed
considerable business for the Home
laundry and allowed the Impression to
get abroad that he was out of busi
ness. Coleman advertised in THE
TIMES and gave his telephone number,
but did not move the phone. As a re
sult a number of people called up at
the old home where there was nobody
living. The telephone has now been
moved and anyone calling up Is prom
ised prompt attention by Mr. Cole
The people of Twin Palls are being
continually congratulated by visitors
to this city on account of the splen
did vocal and instrumental music fur
nished at the Rogerson cafe. Miss
McNeil Is fulfilling all the high ex
pectations aroused by the splendid
recommendations given her before she
came to this city. The list of songs
published elsewhere in this issue will
be taken as an evidence that she in
tends to maintain the reputation,
which in the opinion of music lovers
she has so justly attained.

Because the city dads or part of
them got cold feet Monday and there
was nothing of paramount importance
for consideration the meeting of the
city council Monday night adjourned
without action,
appeared as a committee of one and
informally discussed the matter of get
ting lights for the tabernacle meetings
and W. Olson was present to ask that
the part of the city laws forbidding
streamers to be strung across the
streets be amended to except road
shows are announced for local the
atres at times when there Is no op
portunity to advertise In the newspa
pers. Favorable action with reference
to both seems probable.
Harry Dinkelacker
The advertisement in the classified
columns of this issue with reference
to the stealing of a robe from a car
on the Kimberly road Saturday after
noon and the recognition of the thief
by a person who saw the act and later
reported to the owner calls attention
to the prevalence of that form of
petty stealing In and around Twin
Falls. Many of those who have suf
fered have failed to report to the po
lice and are bearing their losses in
silence. In a few instances where the
thief was recognized the articles are
reported to have ben rturnd. Many
are growing tired of lenient treatment
to the pilferers and some drastic i c
tlon Is promised soon unless the prac
tice stops.

matter of the Potato breakfast of the
Commercial club at the Rogerson cafe
Saturday morning. The members of

ets and they are literally "going like
hot cakes." The program managers
say that the thing will be as appetiz
ing as an epicurean feast, as profound
as a treatise by Aristotle and as funny
as a barrel of monkeys, which is "go
ing some" beyond a doubt. Anyhow, it
is going to be the banner thing In the
way of wit and wisdom that has been
pulled off by the men folks of Twin
Falls for a long time.

Associate Editor of Hoard's Dairyman,
Says That Dairy Cow is Great Help
in Rotating:.
Numerous examples from experience
of the utility of the dairy cow as a
means of securing the crop rotation
and fertilization necessary to pre
vent the wearing out of the soil were
cited by A. J. Glover, association edi
tor of Hoard's Dairyman in his address
at the high school auditorium Friday
afternoon in an address similar in its
outlines to the one delivered at the
Commercial club the night before.
Introduced in a happy speech by
Gustav Kunze of Buhl, president of
the Idaho State Dairymen's associa
tion and owner of the factory that
made the cheese that made the Gem
state famous at the San Francisco ex
position, Mr. Glover began by a brief
but eloquent enconium on the Twin
Falls tract, after which he turned to
the deleterious effect of the one crop
system. On the other hand he showed
how by crop rotation, following the
introduction of dairying the farms in
his native state of Wisconsin and in
the neighboring state of Minnesota had
"come back and were now producing
much larger yields of the crops once
supposed to have played out, than they
did in the early days when the states
were first settled. He told of how the
pine stump land of northern Wiscon
sin, once supposed to be useless had
been converted into farms of great
productiveness by farmers who came
from Bohemia and other European
countries, borrowed money to buy cows
and paid it back on installments with
the products of purchased cows.
His description of the live stock
exhibits at the fairs in that part of
the country when these people would
bring in their stock decked in ribbons
of brightest hues was both amusing
and Inspiring.
The Buhl meeting on Thursday af
ternoon which was attended by J. H.
Van Tassell, Willet Hance, W. N. Birch
and J. H. Bradley of this city, is said
to have been a very successful affair.
Following a luncheon there was a
meeting at the rooms of the Buhl Com
mercial club which was addressed by
Mr. Glover and others. The Buhl citi
zens were full of enthusiasm on ac
count of the return on that day of
Gustav Kunze, in whose honor the pro
vision In the by-laws of the State
Dairymen's association forbidding a
third presidential term, had been re
pealed at the Boise meeting, in order
to confer that distinction on him. Mr.
Kunze was as happy and modest as

Big Structure Will be on Chautauqua
Grounds. Training of Two Great
Choirs to Begin.
The erection of the big tabernacle
with its seating capacity of 3000 will
begin on the Chautauqua grounds Mon
day morning and by Tuesday night the
building will be finished and ready for
the training of the two big choirs of
400 voices each that under Professor
Butler, the world's greatest choir lead
er will lend inspiration to the Oliver
meetings which begin on February 13.
The tabernacle will be dedicated a
week before the beginning of the evan
gelistic services. George H. Reddin,
advance man was in the city a couple
of days within the past week making
preliminary arrangements for the
great meeting. There will be an
adult choir of 400 and a children's
choir of 400 The training of these
voices will be largely in the hands of
Mr. Reddin, who will return to the city
in a few days to remain until the be
ginning of the meetings.

Removal of Penalty Where Half Is
Paid Makes Difference. Number of
Receipts Greater.
Although there has been a material
increase in the number of tax receipts
issued by the county treasurer this
year over last, the amount collected
is almost $50,000 below the tax col
lected last year, obviously on account
of the fact that there Is no penalty at
tached to the last half of the taxes If
not paid until June. The total col
lected this year Is slightly in excess
of $300,000 while last year it amounted
to something over $350,000. The Ore
gon Short Line and several other big
corporations took advantage of the
law to pay only half. The sum held
out by the Short Line alone amounted
to about $20,000.
The Merchants' Protective associa
tion at a meeting In the Commercial
club rooms last night elected the fol
lowing directors; L. T. Wright, H. M.
Skeels, E. J. Jenkins, V. H. Decker,
B. L. Bronaugh, G. W. Shrout, P. W.
McRoberts, M. E. Jennison and H. E.
Barber. The officers of the association
will be selected from the directors by
the directors.
