HANSEN Republican 1'upcr Suggests That Poli lies He Laid Aside and Election Made Unanimous. In an editorial in which its allegi ance to the Republican party is re iterated, the Idaho Call, published at Kimberly, suggests that partisanship be laid aside and that the people of Twin Falls county join unanimously in the election of Judge Lawrence Han sen, one of the Democratic legisla tive nominees. The life iiistory of the pioneer is set forth at lengtli and his place as a citizen is eulogized. His service on the board of trustees of the Albion State Normal school is praised and his long career as justice of the peace is mentioned with words of warm endorsement. The Call says: "While The Idaho Call is supporting the Republican party in the present campaign it is a pleasure to say a word in behalf of the candidacy of Judge Lawrence Hansen, of Hansen. Mr. Hansen belongs to that class that is rapidly disappearing from Idaho— those hardy old pioneers who came here forty years ago when pioneering in the western states meant something different from the "pioneering" of the settlers on the Twin Falls tract. "Mr. Hansen's residence here dates from 1877, when he moved to the state from Indianapolis, Indiana, to which state he had emigrated from Denmark in 1869. He located at Rock Creek and engaged in farming and stock raising, being actively engaged in that industry until a few years ago, when he felt that he had earned a rest. Dur ing the eight years he was in Indiana polis he followed a trade he had mas tered in Denmark, that of carpenter and mlllright.

LOVETT, HEAD OF THE UNION PACIFIC RAILWAY t «. t ■ I NEW YORK.—Robert S. Lovett, head of the Lnion Pacific railway system, in a statement comes out for President Wilson, statement he says: "Notwithstanding his action in the eight hour day controversy, I am for Wilson, make mistakes. My firm conviction is that Wilson has more great achievements to his credit titan most presidents who have preceded him. "Wilson settled the currency question, settled it so effectually and wisely that his most reckless critics are silent upon the subject. "His management of our relations to the European war situation is the greatest and most brilliant page in our diplomatic history."

Waters in Forcible Reply to Paris' Criticism Republican Representative Charges Nihart With Improper Methods in Previous Wort ç for Division of County. Returning to the charge, Hon Jas. A. Waters in a reply to Hon. J. W. Faris, made public today, again ad vises all Republicans who are oppos ed to county division to "scratch Ni hart". Mr. Waters denies that he meant to intimate that Mr. Faris in any way acted in a dishonorable manner and says that his conduct in this respect was in striking con trast with that of Mr. Nihart when the latter was in the législature. He charges Mr. Nihart with unfairness and says that he secured the defeat of the agricultural school hill by dickering with the representatives and senators from North Idaho for votes for county division. Lastly, Mr. Waters demands to know by what right Mr. Paris, a Democrat, asks a Republican county central committee to endorse Fred Nihart. The letter follows: Hon. J. W. Faris, Buhl, Idaho. Dear Sir: I have no disposition to engage in a newspaper controversy with any one, and as neither you or I are can didates for office, the voters of our county are not particularly interest ed in our legislative records ot the past. Pardon me, however, for the personal reference to the extent of saying that I had good and honest motive for every legislative vote 1 cast, and am ready at the proper time and place to defend my every action. I feel, nevertheless, that your open letter of recent date mer its a reply. Y'ou seem to think that I made a personal attack upon the integrity of your legislative record. That con clusion is unwarranted, and I think that your over-sensitive nature has caused you' to read between the lines and find charges that were neither worded nor intended. No, Mr. Faris. I cast no insinuation against your legislative effort for county division two years ago, nor do I accuse you of "double crossing" anyone, for you had warned the voters before election day as to what would be your action. Your action in this respect but emphasizes in contrast the action of Fred Nihart j pp was a member of the legis ) ] ature f our years ago. Then, he had been intrusted with the affairs of t b e entire county, and sent to Boise as t h e result of a splendid vote f rom every community. But when the session was drawing to a close he, without consulting his general constituency and taking counsel «"'y with a few politicians and lot owners in Buhl, plunged headlong into the effort to divide the county, He even in his zeal to obtain a county seat for his home town (in cidentially securing for himself a fat political position) so far forgot his obligation to those he was presumed to represent as to fight and secure the defeat of a bill that bore his and „ because the passage of that bill, which provided for the location of an Agricultural school down here, might benefit those who opposed his division scheme. Nat urally, the university interests ot North Idaho opposed our demands for an agricultural school, and Mr. Nihart. making common cause with the enemies of the county secured the university support ror his divis ion bill. In fact, the senator from Latah county representing the uni versity interests was so mindful of his obligation to Mr. Nihart for de feating our agricultural school bill, or was so loyal to the conditions of his bargain, that he introduced the Buhl County division bill in the sen ate. This is no reckless charge, but be proven by C. E. Booth, the can « Twin Falls representative in that legislature, and by others familiar with the history of the session. If Mr. Nihart denies this, ask him why, when the roll was being called for final vote upon the agricultural school bill, he, in response to the calling of his name the first time, said "I pass," thereby glvng verifi ication to the current rumor that he had promised the university inter ests that if his vote was necessary to defeat the bill he would vote against it. No, M -. Furis, I have never, nor do I now charge you with being a traitor or with being unfair, hut knowing that you are a prominent Democrat, and at present a Demo cratic office holder, would like to ask when, and by what authority you were granted the right to de mand certain statements and actions of the chairman of the Republican County Central committee, and why, as such prominent Democrat, you are speaking for. and espousing the cause of Fred Nihart, whom you claim to be a "prominent and regu larly nominated" Republican. You did say "regularly nominated," did you not? It is to laugh. It is the general understanding that when one is regularly nominated he has secured the support of his party friends, while I think you will not deny that you and nearly every other Democrat in Buhl entered the Republican primary for the purpose of supporting and foisting Fred Ni hart's candidacy upon the Republi cans of the county. Is this in keep ing with either the spirit or the let ter of the Primary Law, and is the nomination so secured a "regular" one? I now ceiving the support of but practic ally one-sixth of the Republicans participating in the recent primaries, not regularly nominated, and is ; was not a candidate for the purpose ot Republican principles; that he con sequently is not entitled to the^sup port of Republicans. I also charge that since he is the candidate and the chosen representative of a fac tion, he is entitled to the support of only those who believe in that fac tional fight. I understand that Mr. Nihart goes to anti-divislonists and makes a plea for sympathy and support because he | is a candidate upon the Republican ticket. But we say to him, "Go to those who believe in county division, i the only cause to which you have I proven loyal, and there ask for the j sympathy that here must be denied —go to the city of Buhl, the only community to which you have prov en true, and there ask for the votes that >" u s " aor ' '•' n VteD U bli Can s in Again I ay to all "Ä m. our splendid county.

TWIN FALLS WINS HER FOURTH GAME Shoshone is Defeated 33 to 0 on Own Territory VICTORY IS DUE TO CONSISTENT PLAYING OF LOCALS. Neuman, McCracken, Holler and Hoi derman Make Touchdowns—Twin Falls Passes Used With Success. The Twin Falls high football team scored its fourth consecutive victory last Friday by defeating Shoshone high by the score of 33-0, on Shoshone territory. The local boys played a consistent game throughout, and were rewarded by an overwhelming vic tory. Shoshone received the ball at the beginning of the first quarter and re turned it to the thirty yard line. Twin held them for downs, and upon taking the ball returned it rapidly, in spite of the fact that Twin Falls was play ing three subs. In a series of end runs and line bucks of from three to ten yards, the local boys went for a touchdown, Neuman carrying the ball across the line, after which he kicked goal. For the remainder of the quarter Shoshone worked fairly hard, keeping the boys from scoring again. During the second quarter Shoshone tried a fake which worked with such good success that Twin had to get down to business. Shoshone was held for downs again and McCracken car I ried the ball across the line on a wide I end run. Neuman again kicked goal. The half ended with the ball in Sho shone territory, in Twin Falls' posses slon. The regular team played the sec score in the third quarter. Passes were used to a great extent, few of them being incomplete. McCracken repeated his performance of the sec ond quarter and Holderman kicked goal. Holderman made a touchdown on a line plunge a few minutes later. The goal w r as missed. During the third quarter Twin Falls men sustained minor injuries and the Shoshone line was materially weak ened by having their quarter knocked out. Shoshone tried their fake, twice, without gain, and Twin Falls took the ball again, pn the Shoshone twenty yard line Holler broke through the line for the fifth touchdown of the „. . mi „ sed again, wilhthp score of 33 . 0 staring ; n their faceg> ^ shoghone boyg made a la8t futile attemnt to nartiallv even things up, but were unsuccessful.

BOND ELECTION ON IN BUHL Independent District Again Sub mits Proposition ( A8TLEF0BII )IA> PREDICTS THAT It WILL CARRY. Says People of His Precinct Are Will ing to Give Fair Hearing to Hanse« Bridge Plan. "We are pushing a bond election for good roads in the Buhl Independent district, and when the votes are count ed I feel certain that it will carry this time," said Ed S. Couse, of Castleford. to a TIMES reporter Tuesday after 'The farmers are convinced that they need good highways," he con tinued, "and they are going to vote for them. The bonds fell a little short of the required two-thirds the last time, but since then many of those who vot ed against them have been thinking the matter over and have changed their minds. They discovered that the wear and tear on their harness and wagons pulling over chuck holes and ruts would about pay for the interest noon. on the required bonds, and they are right in line for them. Of course, it would mean that they could haul big ger loads if they had the good roads. We think that a railroad out there would be a fine thing, but we have had so much talk on that, that result ed in nothing, that we are not going to pay much attention until somebody comes along with money to build it. At present we consider the good roads proposition of more practical import ance than the railroad." "Is S. P. Atherton again leading the fight against the bonds," he was ask ■ (I "I haven't heard it if he is, and he had better not, if he wants any votes in Castleford precinct," replied Mr. Couse. "How about the Hansen bridge bonds, would they get a good vote out there?" pursued the reporter. "I do not know r ," replied Mr. Couse. "I had heard little or nothing about the matter. I believe that the people there are open to conviction and will ing to give the matter a fair hearing and vote for it if convinced that it ought to go through. Personally, I would be open to conviction. I should like to see bridges along the Snake river wherever needed, and they can not all be built at once, so a begin ning must be made somewhere. If Hansen deserves a bridge it should have it. I suggest that the people in terested ought to lay the matter be fore the voters." HANSEN BRIDGE IS ATTRACTING ATTENTION Voters Discussing Project on Streets and at Meetings Throughout the County. - The voters of Twin Falls county are becoming more and more interested in the Hansen bridge proposition, accord ing to those who have attended the meetings or who have been in the country talking to the people. There is a general feeling that the addition of a large amount of trade to this county's business men will help the whole county, as well as help those on the north side. The Hansen Bridge association is still busy on the mat ter and doing everything possible to arouse interest. It is argued that the bond issue will be small and the in terest charge on it insignificant. PROFESSOR E. J. FJEL8TED GOES TO POCATELLO TO HVR Professor E. J. Fjested of the uni versity extension leaves shortly for Pocatello to take charge of the ar rangements for the seed, livestock and farm products show to be given there in January.
