IESSIVES NOT PLEASED SAYS SWIM Well Known Leader Says Party Is in Air WITH ROOSEVELT OUT MAJORITY WILL SUPPORT HUGHES. Handpicked Delegates Nominted Judge —Error About Tabling of Tele gram. ''We Progressives are not very hap py over the way that things turned said Arthur L. Swim yesterday his return from Chicago, where he attended the national Progressive con "There is one out," on vention as a delegate, matter which seems to have been mis understood with reference to the tele from Colonel Roosevelt recom gram mending the nomination of Senator Lodge," continued Mr. Swim, "and that the fact that, contrary to general was report, and to the understanding of the Republican convention, we did not table the telegram. The Republicans understood that we had laid the re commendations of Colonel Roosevelt the table and they at once proceed ed to nominate Hughes, thinking that they could not get together with us because they supposed that we had Of course, I cm repudiated their terms. ■do not know that they would have act ed differently in any event, but that The Re misunderstanding did occur, publican delegates were handpicked to I do not believe nominate Hughes, that Hughes was the first choice of the bosses, if they could have nomin ated someone else besides him and still have beaten Roosevelt, but satisfactory to them than Roose he was more velt and therefore they backed him.

We nom inated Roosevelt and expected him to accept, and were disappointed because he did not. However, whether he could have been elected or not, his candidacy would have defeated Hughes and I suppose that he did not want to do that when it could increase the chances of electing Wilson. I cannot what the other delegates thought As it say of his declination, as it occurred just before we adjourned. "The leaders are now consulting with Colonel Roosevelt and should he support Hughes, the majority of the party, in my opinion, will do the same. They will not support him as enthusi astically as they would have support ed Roosevelt. They will probably, speaking generally, not support him as warmly as they would have sup ported Senator Lodge, although Lodge was in many ways a reactionist. But they knew where Lodge stood on pre paredness and that was the big issue Some of them seem to feel with them, that Hughes is a little more firm on that issue than Wilson is and, as I said, in the event that Roosevelt does not run, I think that the majority of the party will support Hughes. I notice that Henry Allen is already out for Hughes. On the other hand, Vic tor Murdock takes the result with much bitterness and I understand Is going abroad to be away during a great part of the campaign. "We had lots of enthusiasm in our Senator Borah visited us day and we called on him for a He said that he had come to get a little enthusiasm. There was not much enthusiasm among the handpicked delegates at the Republi can convention. We were enthusiastic for we were the sort of people that be lieve in the things that Colonel Roose velt represents. We regret the way that things turned out and none of us feel very good about it. Some of the biggest and brainiest men in the coun try were in our convention, and if the Republicans had acted on our plan, I am certain that we would have won a great victory." "Do you not think that it would have resulted more favorably for you had your convention nominated Roosevelt at once," Mr. Swim was asked. "Well, I do not know, we hated to go out with an olive branch in one hand and a pistol in the other," he replied. "Yes, but you see what happened to your olive branch," was suggested. "Well, yes, I see that, but we acted as we thought best to bring about har mony, and really, I cannot say what woud have been best, or what would have happened had we done as you suggest," said Mr. Swim in conclusion. convention. on© speech. over CHAUTAUQUA ON HERE NEXT WEEK Advance Man Arrived from Portland Yesterday.

ELKS FLAG DAY SERVICE SUCCESS Patriotic Program is Observed at Layering SEVERAL ADDRESSES DELIVERED BY NOTED ORATORS. Appropriate Musical—Program Part of Exercises—Day Generally Ob served. The annual flag day service held in the Laverlng theatre Wednesday night under the auspices of the B. P. O. E. of this city, was attended by a large and most appreciative audience. The stage was fittingly draped with flags for the occasion. The officers of the Elks and the orchestra occupied the stage, while the remaining members of the lodge marched in in a body and took their places in the front of the theatre. The program opened with the audi ence singing "America," accompanied by the orchestra, which was directed by J. T. Bainbridge. This was follow ed by the regular introductory exer cises by the exalted ruler and officers. Prayer was led by Chaplain Frank Kendall. The overture, "Stradella," by the orchestra, preceded a well pre pared paper by C. D. Thomas on "The History of Our Flag." This was fol lowed by a medley of our national songs by the orchestra and included all the old-time patriotic tunes. Then came the altar service by the esquire and officers, and the presentation by the three esteemed knights, J. P. Johnston, Carl B. Hoag and J. G. Thorp, of an appropriate tribute in the form of a large bell made in sections, the lower one being of red roses, the second of white lillies, and the third of blue violets. These were sur mounted by a bar of stars and the whole was very attractive, represent ing, of course, the colors in our flag and the symbols thereof. The song "Auld Lang Syne" was sung by the Elks and audience. H. C. Hazel in his "Elks Tribute to the Flag," did himself credit and handled his subject in a credible manner. Miss Carlyle sang in her usual sweet man ner, "America I Love You," which was hearti >y responded to by her listeners as was another catchy tune which she In "Lest We For gave as an enchore. get," C.

Remarkably High Scores Made by Many Shooters—Amateurs Head Professionals. Mayor E. M. Sweeley of this city, president of the Idaho State Sports men's association won the Interstate association state amateur champion ship contest Tuesday. Mr. Sweeley and E. C. Grice, of Boise, tied for first place with a score of 98. In the shoot off Sweeley won. Dennis Holohan won third place by a score of 97. Wade, Coates and Fisher tied with a score of 95 and in the shoot-off Coates, Wade and Fisher got fourth fifth and sixth places, respectively. E. White and O. Jones tied for seventh place and in the shoot-off White won. Each of the above winners get a beautiful prize from the association and in addition Mr. Sweeley gets $50 on attendance at the great American handicap. For the entire shoot the high ama tuer championship was won by Den nis Holohan, who hit 290 out of a to tal of 300 birds. F. T. Wade, of Wen dell, was second, with 289 birds; E. M. Sweeley third, with 288; E. C. Grice fourth, with 283; E. T. Fitzger ald of Burley and E. White of Twin Falls, tied for fifth, with 279; C- A. O'Conner of Spokane, sixth, with 877 ; R. J. Coates of Jerome, seventh, with 276, and Fisher and Bailey of Twin Falls, tied for eighth, with 275. Of the professional shooters, P. J. Holohan led with 289, and was follow ed by E. J. Morgan with 285; C. A. Anderson, with 282; Morris, with 280; Reed, with 276, and Valleen, with 257. Wade won the trophy cup and the Holohan medal, and W. T. Woods, the Statesman's trophy. The National ho tel trophy, for the highest number of targets in handicap events, was won by Dennis Holohan, who broke ill birds out of 120 at 22 yards. The Pleasure Producers took movies of the shoot and these will be shown over the United States in the big weeklies in the motion picture houses. An erroneous reading of a statement made in these columns Tuesday led to the impression going abroad that thi* paper had said that no prizes were given to the shooters through the club here. No such statement was made. It was correctly stated that "there is no gambling involved as the shooters pay only for their ammunition and get no rebate from anything that they pay on account of their luck or skill," which will be readily understood as meaning that the money paid in on the grounds was only for ammunition used and that none of the money so paid was put into any form of jack pot and taken back by the men who, as shooters, paid it in. As a matter of fact, some $300 was put up for prizes of one sort or other for skill by local members of the club, but none of this came out of the money paid in on the grounds. The score in the regular events in <e Tuesday's shoot follows: Grice . Martin .... Weaver .... Seckel .... Reed . Fitzgerald O'Connor Leigh . Wade . Magel . P. Holohan 142 D. Holohan 145 Hillware .
