The meeting was called to order by
R. S. Anderson, the county chairman.
Mr. Anderson made a brief talk in
Margaret Morris.
L. L. Evans pf American Falls, Dem
ocratic candidate for state senator,
then briefly addressed the big crowd.
Chairman Anderson then introduced
Governor Alexander, who was greeted
with cheers as he arose to speek.
THE PROUDEST EMBLEM.
The governor declared "to be an
American citizen is the proudest emb
lem any man on earth can wear." He
said: "I have not come here to make
any premises. I have come to tell you
what the national and state adminis
trations have done."
Much stress was placed upon the
passage of the federal reserve act.
The governor declared, "a law has been
made that makes panics impossible.
Now we are safe. Formerly when crop
moving time come. Wall street would
let the word go out that money is
scarce and the rate of Interest went!
up. You have heard nothing of this
kind since the federal reserve act was
passed."
The governor referred to other
tional features, such as the income tax
law, child labor bill. good roads
measure, eight hour law and rural
credits bill. He reiterated that "the
rural credits bill is the most bene
ficial legislation since the dawn of his
tory. So long as the farmer must give
one-third of his crop to pay Interest,
he cannot prosper. Under the rural
credits bill the farmer will be able to
borrow money at about 5 per cent for
from 4 to 40 years. The farmers now
will be able to come Into their own as
a result of this great measure." (Ap
plause.)
The governor ridiculed the idea of a
high tariff for protection, in view of
wool, cotton, leather and practically
everything else being so high in price.
DEPRECATES WAR.
The governor was applauded for the
stand he took regarding war. It was
evident that the large audience does
not want this country to become in- !
volved in tvnr. either in Europe or In j
Mezlco. He created much lauxhtw
when he said. "The politicians who are I
talking war wouldn't fight for any
thing. All they would fight for is a
political Job." The governor then drew
a vivid picture of the awful conse
quences thnt result from war. The
audience cheered the statement that
"our flag is yet the emblem of peace.
Our flag exemplifies the star of hope
for tiie oppressed people of the world.
Mav It wave in peace forever."
STATE AFFAIRS.
The governor then turned his at
tention to state affairs. Ho reiterated
that under the Haines administration
there was levied for stale purposes by
direct taxation »l.ROO.ono. "Under my
administration." he said, "there was
levied *1,285,000. This added to the
*270,000 saved through .vetoing of hills,
mokes
have saved the people of this state."
The governor then told of the great
fight he had with the legislature in
getting tiie legislative bill of * 2 , 000.000
reduced. He credited Senator Ricks
wdth being the one Republican in the
senate who assisted the governor in
having the legislature reduce the state
levy to * 1 , 500 , 000 . In 1915 the state
board of equalization fixed the state
levy at *700,000. he said. "In 1916. I
succeeded In having the state levy
fixed at *565.000. making the total levy
for the two years *1,265.000."

*14,000 for the work hc i d in the Allen

ANSWERS CRITICS.
During his speech the governor di- :
verted long enough to answer those
' who have criticised him for leaving I
the state house and making trips over
the state.
"I have been criticised by some of
the opposition press for getting away
from the state house now and then.

finished up. I visited the Salmon
tract, the Twin Fnlls-Oakley tract, the
