TURNING ON THE SPOTLIGHT.
The dragnet is out in Idaho and the
United States Department of Justice has
begun to sweep the state of the disloyal
element. The arrest at Lewiston and
Orangeville of representatives of the
nonpartisan league on charges of sedi
tion is heralded as the opening gun to
rid the state of an insidious element.
The charges disclose in no uncertain
terms the class of individuals who may
have flocked to the colors of this organi
zation. Thousands of loyal citizens have
been tricked into association with these
people and fed with propaganda that
smirks of Hun intrigue. Clever manipu
lation by the class of men just placed
under arrest has induced loyal citizens
to join this organization. In one breath
they have lauded the war program while
in another they have adroitly sown the
seeds of sedition.
I Despite long delays the federal gov
ernment is starting lo teat the mask from
the disloyal, seditious and traitorous
persons with Bolshcviki tendencies and
pro-Hun sympathies who are hiding be
hind such movements as the Liberty loan
and other patriotic campaigns to conceal
their real intents and purposes. The l.
W. W. has been exposed and its leaders
have been placed in jail for long terms.
Other organizations are due to get
proper attention and, in fact, are getting
it as recent developments show. Too
long have the people and the government
tolerated this disgraceful state of affairs.
The loyal people at home owe it to
the boys who arc wearing uniforms, who
are fighting, suffering and dying for
this nation, to sec that these disloyal
elements are eliminated. This movement
on the part of the government will be
strongly endorsed by all true blue, red
The time has come to tear off the
masks ; to place these traitors in their
proper light and to send them to prison
where they belong. In the army and
navy traitors are stood up against a wall
and shot. Surely the traitors at home
should at least be restrained by putting
them in jail. They deserve shooting.—
Wallace Press Times.
Again President Wilson lias called
Kaiser William a liar and told him and
the German people that the world will
not take the word of a Hohenzollem for
anything. Either the German people
must take over the reigns of government
and dethrone the kaiser, or surrender
unconditionally. Failure to do one of
these will result in the war being con
tinued and carried to German soil. He
has notified the Germans that no trifling
will be permitted and that Germany
must he placed in a position where she
will have to keep her word with the
other nations. No other ruler in the
world has ever been called a liar by the
ruler of another nation as deliberately
and frequently as has the kaiser. Wil
son makes it plain to the German people
that the only thing standing between
them and peace is the kaiser. To have
peace they must throw him in the dis

The soldier boys in Moscow want
fruit. • There is an old saying, with much
troth in it, that "an apple a day keeps
the doctor away." Let us give these
soldiers all the fresh fruit they need.
These are some father's and mother's
sons. They are far from home and
many of them arc rick. There are
enough apples wasting on the ground in
,... rT , h . ,
the orchards of Latah county to provide
every soldier in Moscow all the fruit
he' can eat while here. Let us see that
they get it.
Moscow has done nobly in caring for
the siqk during the influenza epidemic
and the results of this splendid cooper
ative work is apparent. Pullman, with
a much smaller population, has had 11
deaths from influenza. Moscow has had
No sacrifice is too great if by it
a life is saved.
Belgium is preparing an itemized bill
which Germany must pay when the war
is over. The bill has now reached a
total of more than two billion dollars
and the Belgium government has only
itemized its damages up to 1915. More
than three more years of suffering,
despoliation and robbery of Belgium will
be added to the bill, probably bring it
eight billion dollars, or 33 per cent more
than the fourth Liberty loan.
American soldiers are demanding
the war be not ended until German
is invaded. In this they voice the senti
ment of the soldiers of all nations
war with Germany. That country must
be invaded and a large strip of her rich
est territory taken to pay for the damage
she has done to Belgium. France, Serbia
and the world at large.
CLAIMS NEW AUTHORITY

authority to alter railroad freight
rates initiated by Director General
McAdoo even without the affirmative
showing that they are wrong and an-
nounced that the assumption that
such rates are presumed to be right

sound asleep by the road.
An hour later the driver shook him.
"Sorry to wake you up," he said,

I'm likely to be court-martialed now
for being so long on this job, but I
would rather take a 'month and a
