GOVERNOR-ELECT DAVIS HAYS
IDAHO NEEDS STORAGE PLACES
In an interview in Salt Lake this
week, Governor Elect Davis said:
"Idaho's three principal needs, as
I see them, are, agricultural develop
ment, increased marketing facilities,
and bonded warehouses, and I shall
exert every effort to provide for
these things. The legislature, in both
the house and senate, will be over
whelmingly republican, and I feel
confident we will be able, without
loss of time, to pass legislation es
tablishing a system of bonded ware
houses, which are badly needed.
Such legislation was one of the prin
cipal issues of the campaign."
MERIDIAN FARMERS SEES
NEED OF PROTECTIVE LAWS
W. B. Walt, one of the level
beaded farmers residing near Victory
was in town Monday. He is very
much pleased over the success of the
republican party in state and nation
as it insures he says "some wise pro
tective tariff legislation." This leads
to the thought that just now
is a splendid time to have the repub
lican party in power. Thousand
of soldier boys returning home and
reduction of employees in the ship
yards, will mean that employment at
good wages will not be as easy to get
as during the war period. American
labor should be protected and Amer
incan made goods should sell in the
market without competition from
pauper labor and sweat shop goods
shipped in here from foreign coun
BUNGLING DELAY OF
THE CIVIL WAR TIMES
Turning to Woodrow Wilson's
History of the American People, it is
interesting to note the strong dis
approval in dealing with the
facts that the civil war ended with
out any appearent preparations for
reconstruction. When the confed
eracy surrendered the government at
Washington had no plans to meet
the new conditions. President John
son was evidently bent upon a pro
gram of generous treatment of the
southern people, but was met by a
congress evidently determined to
crack the lash over the naked backs
of the vanquished. It took years to
solve problems that should have been
dispassionately discussed and deter
mined before the surrender of the
confederacy. The people of the world
have learned some lessons since
1865. Congress has already been at
work on the problems, with the
help of President Wilson.
DAN BARKER HAS MADE A
GOOD DISTRICT DIRECTOR.
Announcement is made in another
column of an election in the Nampa
& Meridian irrigation district, to sel
ect a sucessor to Dan Barker, whose
term of office will expire. It looks
as though the people of the district
will be wise in retaining the services
of Mr. Barker, as he has proven an
excellent director and manager for
the big water system. He is one of
the best posted men on rights and
duties as pertains to water in the
state of Idaho, and his rare executive
ability makes him just the man we
want in charge of this all import

There are nearly two million of the

In a year the most of them will be

an equal number from cantonments,

engage serious thought of the best

few months. We are floating now in
the high tide of an artificial war

WAR STORIES BY EMPEY.
Sergeant Arthur Guy Empey, the
famous author of "Over the Top' 1 Is
the best known and most popular of
all the soldier-writers who have
told of their experiences "over there"
Readers of the "Times" will be glad
to lam that we have secured for pub-1
lication in this paper beginning in an
early issue, a series of war stories
written by Sergeant Empey. In these
stories Empey tells more of his ex
periences as a fighter with the Brit
ish army in the front line trenches
of France. Empey is an American
who got into the war two years be
fore his country did and he would
have been in it yet, had he not been
wounded and discharged as unfit for
further service. Empey knows all
about the thrills, and dangers, and
horrors, the comradeship and the fun
of life in the trenches. He knows
the life both from the dark side and
the bright side and he writes about
it in a vivid, gripping style.
