The •speaker said that there were many people so attired through Idaho who been church members and pro teasing Christians in their former »•mes in the cast but who were un •wtiling to Like the trouble to profess YSkrisiantty and live up to it here, >vki;re it would require some sacrifice, îfcey said when they left home, "Good 'Pfe, God Almighty, I'm going to Idaho .and I do not know when you will see again." Such people, Dr. Oliver Jteclared, did not really change their natures when they came here. They ■ -were essentially the same now as at ■name, only they had been stripped of linen garment by the slight test applied. The only way to prove that van have real Christianity is to exem plify it in your life. If you reserve woe corner of your heart for sin. jjad compromise with the devil in y*mr conduct, you are not a true jdnristian. If you are in that state mr duty is to confess your sin and Ftorsakc it. Unconditional surrender a* Christ means the giving up of sin. iif yon reserve your besetting sin. you ..■are serving the devil. As the young man who lost his 'flimsy garment of professing Christ ianity at Ute first test, was an exam ,tide of the professing Christians, so -mate Judas an example of those who profess admiration for Jesus Christ vw a great teacher, or a great relig ious philosopher, but who deny his Arinity. Judas did not call him ■a^ord," he called him "Master." Many ■psople go about the world today call ing the Saviour '"the Master." who by JLsayrng his divinity brand him as a far. Although thirty pieces of silver ■was a small price to pay the traitor, ri t was really to high, since nobody m as contemptible as u traitor or worth so little. (Dr. Oliver assured the people that artest was soon to be applied in Twin iC»Ils to determine who was Sincere Ay Christian and who wore only the • cannent of professing ChrislAnily. He -warned the people beforehand that 3a2»e accusations would be made .against those preaching Chrisianity -«ben this time would conic, as he had fad experience enough with the forces af evil to know this. He appealed to all church members to be ready for this test and to get ready by casting aside their besetting sins if they had any and become imbued with tue prop er spirit. Dr. Oliver said that the people could make this the occasion for great anil lasting good and could make it neces sary to build additions to the churches 4t this city. He then told of what (kail happened at Mankato, Kansas, »hieb as the result of a meeting has the finest Y. M. C. A. hall of any city of Its size in the world, and cited oth er similar instances of financial sac rifice. He warned people against the •yairit of money worship and said that when the brewer Adolphus Busch cel ebrated a fiftieth anniversary at Pas adena, Cal., a few years ago. Presi dent Taft, and former President Roos evelt had sent him presents and feli citations, This spirit of money wor ship which permitted the sending of congratulations to a man who had made his fortune from the manufac ture of a hell brew was to be depre cated. The meetings continue to attract great crowds. Sunday night an ex cursion from Hansen and Kimberly brought 309 people. Rev. Frank Mil ler, who is assisting Dr. Oliver and George Redden held meetings at Han sa» and Kimherly on Sunday, with the result that 40 made a confession „f Christianity.

LEGAL PUBLICATION The mayor called attention to the fact that the Short Line Railroad company had submitted a form of lease for the ground upon which the city scales are located for an addi tional period of five years, the old lease having expired. The new lease to be upon the same general terms as the former lease, and upon a rental of One ($1.00) Dollar per annum. And subimtted the same to the council as to whether the lease should be re newed. Thereupon Councilman Bolder intro duced the following resolution: BE IT RESOLVED, TJiat the pro posed lease the Short Line Railroad Company to the City of Twin Falls, for the ground upon which the city scales are now located for a term of five years at the yearly rental of One ($1.00) Dollar be accepted and that the mayor and cleric be and they are hereby authorized and directed to exe cute said lease on behalf of the city. Councilman Smith moved that the foregoing resolution be adopted, which motion was seconded by Councilman Parrott. A vote thereon was taken which resulted as follows: Councilman Parrott, Aye. Councilman Smith, Aye. Councilman Bracken, Aye. Councilman Bobier. Aye. Whereupon the mayor stated that said motion was duly carried and said resolution adopted, and signed and ap proved the same. E.

He said that the demand for tlie extension was not merely from the people of the city, but from the farmers wtio de sired greater facilities for the storage ot their products. Nobody opposed the proposition, but it developed that there had been some informal opposition before the meet ing. Mayor Sweeley asked for further remarks, and said that the whole mat ter would be treated informally pend ing final action. Councilman Bracken said it was a matter of the greatest importance and that ample time should be taken in its consideration. On his motion it was held over until the next meeting. The same action was later taken with reference to ex tension of a switching line over Sec ond street south. While before the council .Mr, Booth called attention to the fact that while the Oregon Short line had allowed money in its 1916 budget for the installation of a safe ty device at the Main street crossing where the train ran into the Hansen party some months ago. yet owing to the dangerous character of the cross ing it might be well to ask the rqad to expediate its Installation, as he un derstood that another accident was narrowly averted a short time ago. The eouncil instructed the city attor ney to take the matter up with the road. E. J. Finch appeared* before the council at the head of a delegation of property owners from Elm Park addi tion and surrounding parts of tlie city to ask definite information relative to the extension of the sewer into that district, in accordance with favorable sentiment expressed by the council some time ago, A right ot way can he secured for the requested sewer all the way except over four lots. The council ordered the city attorney to condemnation proceedings, prepare either for tlie sewer alone or for an alley in which a sewer can be install With reference to the cost he Held that the charges for tlie con struction of tlie sewer could be taxed against the property owners. The peo ple along the line an- generally will ing to pay for the work of putting in the sewer. Mr. Finch called attention to tlie need of a sidewalk along the east side of the Blue Lakes boulevard, where the mud is said to be bad and to work great hardship to pedestrians in general and to school children In particular. The matter was held over until the next meeting and an effort will be made to secure the signatures of 70 per cent of the resident taxpay ers required to permit the installation of the walk at the expense of property owners. ed. The discussion of street conditions developed tlie fact that liiere are three triangular pieces of ground in Twin Falls belonging to tlie city: one at the intersection of Sixth avenue east and the boulevard; one at Tenth ave nue east t.nd the boulevard, and one on Tenth avenue north. These are growing up in weeds and It was pro posed to park them and plant trees and grasses if adjacent property own ers would keep them up. The matter was deferred until the property own ers could be seen. Mr. Finch said that the people at Sixtli avenue and the boulevard would maintain that tri angle. H. C. Scranton, H. E. Rhine hart und J. Maney appeared to urge the granting of a petition for a cross ing on Fourth avenue west. The mat ter was referred to the street com missioner. Electrical Inspector C. I,. Hushaw introduced a substitute ordinance for the one proposed recently by the elec tricians. This was laid over as was also the matter of the proposed plumb ing ordinance. The electrical ordin ance provides for a $25 annual license to competent contractors and takes the supervision from an electrical board, making the electrical inspector solely responsible. Word having been received that the next step on the road to city munici pal water could not be taken owing to the fact that necessary papers were in transit, the council adjourned until tomorrow night, when likely only waterworks will be considered. M .A. Parrott was in from the Sal mon tract today and reports that the water from the recent snow has gone into the ground and that plowing will soon be possible. He says that the people have generally filled their cis terns from snow water and that condi tions there arc generally good. fes. 'm , I • (ora Tracey in Robin 11 cod. at Layer ing Theatre.

Shepherd of the Presbyterian church and read by him at the taber nacle Sunday night, Rev. D. F. Risk, pastor of the Baptist church at Lamar, Mo., tells of the success of the reviv al there and throws light on the atti tude of Dr. Oliver toward compro misers. The letter follows: Lamar, Mo., Feb. 16, 1916. Dr. John Shepherd, Twin Falls, Idaho. Dear Brother: We have been blessed with a great revival. I thought that it might en courage you for me as one of the local pastors to write and tell you about it. Inasmuch as you have been fortunate enough to secure the same party we did. We were very fortunate in getting Dr. Oliver to come to us. But we in duced him by organizing the whole county in the campaign. Unfortunate ly the weather conditions and had roads made it impossible for the coun try people to come in, and the train service for coming and returning to tlie small towns was also bad. Nev ertheless we had a great meeting in spile of the difficulties. We had 929 decisions. Considering the size of the town (2400 population) It was the greatest meeting ever held in Missouri. The Lord gave us more than we asked for. The results wore more than we expected. All the churches have been greatly strengthened. The great majority have already gone into the churches with out having to hunt them up. Those who were converted all have red hot testimonies that thrill the hearts of the people who have prayed and look ed forward to this campaign for ten years. The churches are transfigured. The old members are like different people. Our town has been trans formed and I feel like I had been translated. For I never expected to see such a great change. The working force of my church has increased in force 100 per cent,, in power it has increased wonderfully because of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. There are a number of things that made this possible. In the first place there was a great spirit of prayer throughout the community. The peo ple talked to God about men and then went out to talk to men about God. We this work forces. Another thing that was absolutely essential; all of the ministers were in harmony and striving to see a great victory regardless of dennmiational results^ We stood behind Dr. Oliver in everything he did or said. When things were getting pretty warm for they began to go to their pastors for sympathy. We were determined to sec sin eliminated from our church life if it cost us our pastorates. The result was a groat victory for us all. Dr, Oliver is a fearless preacher. He will not compromise under any .condition. Like the apostles after they received the Holy Spirit he speaks with boldness. If you stay by him you will go through for vic tory. If any of the preachers get cold feet and begin to softsoap the ungodly church members you will more than likely defeat your efforts. We know from experience. Your com munity couldn't be any more difficult than this one. Dr. Oliver is the greatest preacher I have ever, heard. And I have heard some of the greatest in the country. He gets his results from the preach ing of the Word. There may be times in your campaign when you think that everything is on the rocks, and you may feel like censuring his meth ods. Don't do it. We had three such crisises in our campaign. Follow Oli ver and you will come out all right. For he is a man of great prayer. I can explain the results of his preach ing in no other way. For there isn't anything of the emotional type in any of his messages. The people got mad here and cursed him and said they would never go to the tabernacle again, but the great majority of these men were converted. And now they give the best testimon ies of all. That attitude is a fine % indi cation. Our meeting didn't begin'until the people were stirred as to their sins. could never have accomplished without either of these Our law enforcement league (one of tlie results of the meeting) has been able to compel the druggists to send back their booze and forfeit their gov ernment licenses. One has already done this and the others will have to do it or go to the pen. Vfe have affi davits piled high against them. For years they have been operating un molested. It is impossible for me to tell you all of the blessings of this great cam paign. I will remember you all in prayer. Yours in Him, D. F. RISK, Pastor of the First Baptist Church. V P. S.—We had no trouble in financ ing the meeting. CONSOLIDATION OF POWER PLANTS IS BEING EFFECTED The distributing system installed last year by the Idaho Light and Pow er company is being removed by a force of men that have been at work during the past few days. The Great Shoshone system at Buhl will be tak en out and power there received from Maiad. Here the power will come from the Great Shoshone plant, case of emergency power can be had for either system from either plant. The local offices of the Idaho Light & Power have been abolished and the books moved to the Great Shoshone building, the merger being practically complete.
