The Twin Falls Times
TWICE-A-WEEK Published Tuesdays and Thursdays by the TIMES PRINTING & PUBLISHING COMPANY, Ltd. HAROLD M. SIMS, Editor TWO DOLLARS PER YEAR IN ADVANCE DISCONTINUANCE : not to have their subscriptions interrupted in case they fail to remit before expiration. Notwithstanding this, it is not assumed that continuous service is desired ;• still, subscribers are ex pected to notify us with reasonable promptness to stop if the paper is no longer desired. Entered at the Twin Falls postoffice as second class matter as s twice-a-week publication, October 18. 1910. Many subscribers prefer NOTICE: C D. THOMAS EXPLAINS. "1 notice in your paper and in your editorials a continual reference to statements alleged to have been made by me. and I wiàh to inform you that if you will print all I said you will be doing justice to me. "1 hereby give the exact words that 1 used and the circumstances surrounding the statements. "1 was elected temporary chairman of the Republi can club (1 was not elected president and there has been no president elected at this date—that was your first error), and when 1 was elected chairman I said 'that 1 would not scratch my ballot ; that as far as my vote was concerned that the worst Republican was better than the best Democrat.' I did not refer in any way to any Dem ocrat that was not running for office and as far as my friends are concerned 1 never ask whether they are Re publicans or Democrats. One looks as good as the other except when they run for office, and it comes to my vote. I do not know whether you misquoted me with the delib erate attempt to hurt me or not. or whether you were misinformed, but whatever the motive you will do me a justice by printing this letter." The above is the text of a written statement addressed to THE TIMES by Mr. ('. D. Thomas. We have repeatedly asserted in these columns that we believe in "fair play. Life is too short to devote any portion of it to deliber ate misrepresentation or distortion. This paper has been the first and probably the most vociferous in denouncing that portion of the Idaho press which has been characterized by the utter lack of desire to be "square" with political opponents. Thus, if the publication of Mr. Thomas' communication will in any measure mitigate any supposed injustice that may have been done to Mr. Thomas by the publication of what he said to the Republican gathering at the Parish hall on the occasion of the organization of the Hughes club, we are glad to run it. Readers may be interested in knowing that our information con cerning the statements made by Air. Thomas on that occasion came through a prominent Republican of this county, and Mr. Thomas' speech was mentioned merely as an incident of the meeting of which our informant was telling us. Realizing that the statement credited to Mr. Thomas was, in several respects, a rather amazing one, and feeling that perhaps Mr. Thomas had not meant to be taken seriously, or had possibly been misquoted, THE TIMES sent a reporter to inter view the gentleman. As a result of this precautionary interview, we arrived at the conclusion that Mr. Thomas was "standing pat," for he said : • " I meant what I said about the worst Republican being better than the best Democrat. I stand on that. I believe it. I have voted for local Democrats and every one that I ever did vote for, except one, turned on me and gave me the worst of it through his office when elected. 1 am through with them." Of course if Mr. Thomas has assurances that the Republican can didates for county offices, if successful, will make it a point to see that the above sad and distressing condition is reversed, we cannot blame Mr. Thomas for supporting them. That Air. Thomas is temporary chairman of the Republican club, and has been since its organization, and is not the president, as was supposed by THE TIMES, and incidentally mentioned once or twice, is a correction by which we will be glad to abide in the future. We hope the full publication of the above will right any injustice that may have been done to the temporary chairman of the Hughes club, although, while we recognize a slight revision of wording of what Air. Thomas said he said, the authorized, revised version doesn't look any better to us than the first. A FAITHFUL PUBLIC SERVANT. That the public recognizes faithful service is indicated by the general sentiment manifested among many Republican and independ ent voters throughout the county in favor of the re-election of Prank M. Kendall. On the score of economy, efficiency, promptness, polite ness and regard for the feelings of those with whom lie lias been pelled to deal officially, he is the, peer of any officer that has ever served the county. Unless all signs fail, his return with an increased majority is assured. corn y The Theatres I t t Dorothy Gish and Frank Bennett get married at the close of the new' Tri J angle-Fine Arts play.

Brady announced his decision to take charge of the pro ductions! end of the World Film cor poration. and not put his name on a feature unless it really was a feature, very few people versed in the theatri cal business, figured that this leading light of stagecraft would plunge right into the work and devote his time and energy to pictures. Nevertheless, that is just what Mr. Brady has done. Every day in the week, and sometimes Sundays, William A. Brady is in the World Film studios, coat and hat off, working as hard as any director, play er or scene shifter. William A. Brady has promised to give the photoplay world better motion pictures, and he is going to do just that thing. One of his latest personally supervised releases is "The Rail Rider, " with House Bet ers and Zena Keefe, directed by Mau rice Tourneur. It is a great improve ment over many past releases. It will be shown at the Isis theatre on Mon day and Tuesday. "THF HOUSE OF THE GOLDEN WINDOWS" Founded on an old fairy tale of two children who climbed from their lit tle cottage to the house on the hill only to discover that the golden win dows were made of nothing but the sun shining on broken window panes, and looking back they see the same golden effect on the panes of the win dows in their own little home, L. V. Jefferson and Charles Sarver have constructed a splendid photodrama, "The House of the Golden Windows," a Paramount picture, which will be seen at the Idaho Monday and Tues day, with Cleo Ridgley and Wallace Reid, the Lasky stars, in the leading roles. The story is a modern version of this old fairy tale and the scenes are laid in the green fields of California , and show in a striking manner how | true happiness is really at one's own | fireside. K1LHRMÂN COMPANY PLEASES MUSIC LOVERS Second Program of Lyceum Course, Presented Tuesday Evening Contains Many Beautiful Musical Numbers. The music lovers of Twin Falls were given an. especial treat Tuesday even ing at the Havering theatre by the Marcus Kellerman company. The sec ond program of the Lyceum course proved highly entertaining and the three members of the company found it necessary to respond to repeated encores. The program was well bal anced and the interpretations of the numbers rendered were original and pleasing, and the large audience prov ed most appreciative of Mr. Keller man's vocal solos, the violin solos by Lucille Janovitch, and the piano work of Nicolai Schneer. The next number on the Lyceum course is "The Killarney Girls," who appear December 20. MANAG1R IAV1RING INSTALLS NEW CURTAIN Is Second Of Its Kind and Is Kepro ductiun Of Tower of Jewels—Eight Hundred Brilliants Used. E. C. Layering, manager of the Lay ering theatre, received this week and has already installed a new curtain which is something new in the way of a stage decoration. Though advan tage was taken of some of the space on the curtain for advertising pur poses, the feature of the curtain lies in the novelty of the central decora tion, A reproduction was made of the world-famous Tower of Jewels, at the Panama-Pacific exposition, which in itself is an artistic piece of work, but the outsanding beauty of the picture is the clever reproduction of the jew eled work which covered building. The effect of the continu ous twinkle of colored lights was ob tained by the use of 80U which reflect the light globes in the theatre, sway of the immense curtain increases this effect and under the spot-light the curtain is particularly beautiful. A small picture of the Perrine coulee is also reproduced and the use of the brilliants gives this picture added at traction. the fair brilliants from tile The natural lor tl,e *J rst 1 uesday evening at the M ? rtus Kellerman & tainment - The curtain is the work of Charette and Charette, scenic painters, of Los Angeles, California, in the city to superintend the installa tion and he says that this is the sec ond curtain of its kind in the United States, the first being installed in a theatre in Boise.

It seems unfortunate, in fact deplorable, that many business men, some occupying prominent positions in the business world, should deem it necessary to resort to misrepresentations in pre senting their merchandise to the buying public. During the past week I have seen men 's half hose (socks) displayed in a window and mark ed "Wool hose, 2 pairs for 25 cents" and there was not a particle of wool in them. During the past six months I have read ad vertisements of a store claiming to be part of an organization having a number of stores (be tween thirty-five and forty), and stating that they buy their goods in large quantities direct from mills and factories, thereby enabling them to undersell competitors. While as a matter of fact the proprietor of the store making this claim has but two stores, one in Idaho and one in Montana, and much of his merchandise comes from St. Louis Jobbing Houses. Not long since I saw a number of articles dis played in the window of a Department Store marked at special prices, and giving the im pression that they represented others of the same kind that were for sale on the inside of the store. As a matter of fact they were pies sold by a traveling salesman for a jobbing house, and only one of a kind, and naturally were more or less soiled and mussed. It is all right for a store to buy samples at a discount and sell them at less than regular prices, but it is misleading to display them in show windows, making it a.npear as if they were part of the regular goods in the stock. I make no claims in connection with my buy ing or the selling of merchandise that are not based on facts. The goods we sell are dependa ble, and the methods we use are those approved of by the best business men in the country. Any and every member of a family can come to this store and trade and be sure of receiving the right kind of goods at right prices.
