To the "Old-Timers:
This is the friendly way we designate those of you who have come to us regularly, year after year, for your Christmas portraits. Some of you have been coming every year for ten years and all of you know just how busy we are in the months of November and December. Many of you said last year ''We will come in ear lier next year. Get these out for us this time and we will surely be in early for our next holiday pictures." And we did get your work finish ed, and on time—you all re member it. don't you?—but we would so greatly appreci ate a longer time to put up 1,011 your portraits this year. We do not want to be hur * / >ried ; we want plenty of time both for your sitting and for the finishing. That means— Come early. We know you so well, you who are on our ''old-timer" list, we have made so many negatives for most of you, that we feel we can emphasize the resolution you made for yourselves last year—Come early. It will be better both for you and for us. w iA ' 'l m m\ i ^he Bisbee Studio GEO. R. SCHWEIGER Candidate for County Treasurer and Tax Collector. Why should it be necessary for you as a taxpayer to make a trip to Twin Falls and go to the treasurer's office and pay your taxes to deputies em ployed by you with your money when the local bank in your town or com EFFICIENCY and ECONOMY the qualifications upon which I seek the office of Treasurer and Tax Col lector of Twin Falls county on the Re publican ticket. The system of paying taxes now practiced in Twin Falls county should be changed so as to benefit the tax are payer. V / / ■• ■Y' T - ■ j Sr » i 8 ; -à % y&i ■ W. H. KARIS DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR ASSESSOR This office affects yon most of all,—if your property is over-assessed yon wil^have.to pay more than your proportion of the up keep of Twin Falls county-, your lawful taxes are high enough. I have a plan by which 1 can save the county some money, at least the price of the assessor's salary, as well as the price of many deputies. 1 shall do most of the assessing myself —as much at least as possible. My plan is,—notify the farmers or taxpayers, appoint meetings at the different school districts, meet the taxpayers in a body, talk it over with them, and get the whole district in one evening, and so on, one evening for each district throughout the county. This plan is being used at some parts of the country with great success and J. maintain that this manner of assessing is the correct and economical one for Twin Falls county. This does away wdth some ten or twen ty deputies. If you could see the real advantage and money saving of this system, you surely would all vote for me. Below is one of many genuine letters of recommendation from bankers and business men of my former associates: Bresford, S. Dak., Oct. 12th, 1016. MR. W. II. KARIS. ■ r î i Twin Falls, Idaho.

If I am elected to this office, that of Treasurer and Tax Collector, I will make every bank in Twin Falls county a tax paying bank, where you can go and pay your taxes, or have your bank er pay them for you in the regular way and greatly reduce the expense and work in the treasurer's office. If we would practice this system here now we would reduce the expense of the treasurer and tax collector's office about one-half. ECONOMY here as well as they do elsewhere. We can practice I ask the earnest support of each and every voter in Twin Falls county, regardless of your party affiliation, believing you wish TRUE EFFICI s y ENCY and ECONOMY practiced in your county offices. If elected I will give you a business administration, realizing I am the tax payers' servant and will practice cour teous and kind, friendly service to everyone, as I have in all my business affairs.

WHELAN Those who imagine that the boys who went to the front with the Second Idaho would by this time be holding substantially unanimous views on in tervention, on the Wilson administra tion, on the desirability of remaining at the front and on all other import ant matters, will have to amend their opinions. Captain H. W. Wilson, a prominent Twin Falls physician, re turns believing personally, that inter vention must eventually come; Lieu tenant J. W. Porter, a former promin ent Twin Falls attorney, come back with the hope that conditions may work out without intervention. Lieu tenant Porter says that in his opin ion relatively few of the boys have changed politics on the border, and that they are divided in opinion. Cap tain Wilson says that although the ma jority want to get back as soon as practicable and many are very anvious to return, a considerable number do not desire to come home at once and forty or fifty out of the regiment will join the regulars permanently. All of which goes to show that boys on the front are like boys at home; having different views of things, and being di vided in opinion. On one point there seems to be no division: and that is that if by staying a while longer on the border, they can help bring about an adjustment without war, which will be permanent and under which Ameri can life and property will be secure, they will all gladly do so. Another thing testified to by all, and it is one in which all must be grati fied, is the splendid moral and physi cal condition of the home boys at No gales. That they have profited by their experience in a way that will help them through life cannot be ques tloned. This indicates the advisibil ity of the suggestion made by Presi dent Wilson in his Pittsburg speech last January, in which he pointed out the wisdom of a great system of indus trial schools in which the youth can be taught the physical exercises that go with military drill and in which "it is perfectly feasible to instruct the youth of the land in the mechanism Piano at a Sacrifice We have on hand in the vicinity Twin Falls, one of our very best pianos.

Such course would indeed be beneficial were war abolished. In suggesting in his interview Tues day that the national administration might be deferring action because un prepared to take it, I believe Captain Wilson struck a keynote. Perhaps for other reasons than he had in mind. Distinguished writers like Sherrill and Hodges, who consider it pos sible but not inevitable, hold the theory that intervention, it it must come, should be conducted in such way as will not unnecessarily antagonize the people of Latin-America from Yucatan to Cape Horn, who have been drawn to us by our co-operation with them in the A. B. C. negotiations and who are gradually losing the suspicion of our intention which they once had. Intervention, if necessary, should if possible he made by the United States, accompanied by the six powers of South America that negotiated with Carranze. This would allay the sus picions of the Mexicans and would make friends instead of enemies of Latin-America in case of war with strong European country.

This condition does not exist in Mexico. That the ignorant peons of the border are moved by a mistaken sense of des peration to try to provoke us to fight rather than by any mistaken idea of our prowess should a war start, is in dicated by their attitude at Nogales, where, only a year ago, 122 of them were killed in a battle in which only one American lost his life.

South America is not yet ready to co-operate, but the relations with this government by leading coun tries there during the last two years, indicates that when deemed absolutely necessary that country will co-operate in bringing peace by intervention and the use of discretion and common sense which will prevent premature action ie Indeed commendable.
