The Daily Star-Mirror 5 « 1 TOLUMB Yin MOSCOW. LATAH COUNTY, IDAHO SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7, 1918 NUMBER «0 HOHENZOLLERNS TO BE TRIED FOR MURDER It begins to look like the Hohenzollern family will not be permitted to dwell in peace even in Holland. That country announces that it will render them for trial, if the Allies insist upon it (which is quite logical) but Holland asks that they be interned for life, a la Napoleon, on one of the islands of the Dutch East or West Indies. sur But the allies are not disposed to let the murderers of women and babies A French woman has filed a off thus easily, but will demand their trial, charge of murder against the former emperor because of the torpedoing of the hospital ship, Sussex, which, more than any other act, caused the break between Germany and the United States. Her husband was killed on this ship. The attorney general of France says she has a good case and France will demand William Hohenzollern's extradition. There will be no prizes offered to the first person guessing what the jury's verdict will be. Mars, the "god of war" is not to settle down and quit business. He has moved from Europe fb South America and is trying to start a little side show down there, with bright prospects of success. Peru, Chile, Argen , tine and Brazil are said to be mobilizing troops. The situation there is similar to what it was in Europe in 1914 when many European coun tries mobilized because their neighbor did. Argentine and Brazil are largely populated with Germans who have been trying to "Germanize" both countries and who are probably responsible for the conditions in those countries. The cable and telgeraphic reports received today follow: Holland Will Surrender Both Hohenzollems. LONDON.—If the Allies insist upon the delivery of the former German emperor and the crown prince to an international court of justice Holland will yield but will first urge that the allies content themselves with Holland undertaking to iptem both of them for life in one of the Dutch colonies, according to an Amsterdam dispatch to the Express. Holland, it is reported, will suggest that they be placed on an island either in the East or West Indies and kept under guard of the Dutch fleet. Forming Court to Try Hohenzollems. PARIS. —The formation of an international jury to try the German em peror is gaining wide support in France, the Matin says. Attorney General Lescouve, after investigation, has transmitted to the ministry of justice a murder charge against the former emperor, made by Madame Frieur, whose husband was killed by the torpedoing of the Sussex. The attorney general said he considered the charges admissable in the French courts. Turks Massacre 10,000 Armenians. AMSTERDAM.—The Turkish forces massacred 10,000 Armenians while evacuating the towns of Baku, Olti and Ardahan, in the Caucasus, according to reports to the Vorwaerts, of Berlin. Arrest Executive Committee in Berlin. LONDON.—Great excitement was caused among the Spartacus or radical group in Berlin today when the executive committee of the soldiers and workmen's council was arrested, says an Exchange Telegraph dispatch from Copenhagen, The government declared it did not order the arrest and promises that the committee will be released. Reformers are Robbing Germany. MUNICH, Friday.—(By Associated Press.)—Anxiety is being shown by the German press over the financial stability and even honesty of many hundreds of workmens' and soldiers' councils which are conducting the af fairs of this country. Reliable reports say the disbursements of these coun cils in the past two weeks have totalled 800,000,000 marks. Attempt Assassination in PortugaL • Paes, president of Portugal, on the street here today. The shot missed its mark. The assailant was arrested. War Clouds in South America. LIMA, Peru, Friday.—Reports here tonight say that Brazil has begun to mobilize troops. There is no official confirmation. (Editor's note.—War clouds have been hovering over South America since a few days after the close of the "big show" in Europe, Peru and Chile were on the verge of war and had started to mobilize when Chile apologized and it was thought the matter was settled. Yesterday it was reported that both Argentine and Peru had begun to mobilize their armies and today Brazil ■ is reported to have started mobilization yesterday.) Why German Propaganda Failed. WASHINGTON.—The failure of German propaganda initiated in America by Bernard Dernberg was attributed by Count von Bernstorff in explanation to thfe-Beilin foreign office to the impossibility of keeping secret the fact that American newspapers were -subsidized by the Germans and the sink ing of the Lusitania. The former German ambassador's explanation was given the senate com mittee investigating the brewery and German propaganda matters today with other secret documents from the department of justice files by Bruce Bielaski, chief of the bureau of investigation. President May Call More Delegates to Paris. WASHINGTON.—Bernard Baruch, chairman of the war industries board, and Henry P. Davison, chairman of the American Red Cross war council, have been asked by President Wilson to hold themselves in readiness to ^respond to a call for their services with the peace delegation to Europe. *■ Increase American Army of Invasion. WASHINGTON.—Five additional divisions have been definitely assigned to the American army of occupation advancing into Germany, General - March said today. They are the Second and Seventh regulars; the Twenty eighth and Twenty-ninth and the Pennsylvania and Maryland and District of Columbia national armies. They have been given the task of occupying Luxemburg and specific areas around Mont Medy, St. Mihiel and Longuyon. Many Coming Home. The Personnel assigned by General Pershing for early return home are 0,325 officers and 125,316 men. Additional units are the Ninety-second and Eighty-seventh division. General March said that in the United States in the past week more than 200,000 men and 7,668 officers have been re leased. The discharge system is being rapidly speeded. As far as transportation is concerned he said it would be easy to bring home all of the national guard and national army divisions within four months after is declared. IMHO ID HAVE I NEW DRIVE FOR FUNDS FORMER CONGRESSMAN MC CRACKEN TO TAKE IIP WORK OF RAISING STATE'S QUOTA NEW YORK.—Ex-congressman R. N. McCracken for merly of Boise, now a captain in the United States army, stationed at Camp Humphries, Va., recently held a conference with the officials of the American committee for relief in the near east (formerly the American committee for Armei an and Syrian relief) at the national hedquarters in New York.

When asked if he expected any dif ficulty in raising Idaho's quota Cap tain McCracken said: "Idaho has re sponded more than 100 per cent to every appeal so far. When I return home I will do so with supreme confi dence that she will continue to carry on. America undertook the biggest job in the history of the world, we have cleaned up everything except a few corners. Idaho has done her full share, so far and will continue to do it until even the last corner is thor oughly cleaned."

UNIVERSITY SENDS STOCK TO PORTLAND SHIPS CARLOAD OF FAT STOCK AND CATTLE FOR SALE— SENDS FINE ANIMALS The University of Idaho shipped a carload (16 head) of cattle from its farm to the Portland fat stock show and sale today. The university will have 10 entries in the fat stock show and will have six head of cattle en tered in the sales ring. The fat stock which will contest for prizes in the ' Portland show opening Monday, consists of two 2-year-old steers; five yearlings and three steer calves . They are of the Shorthorn, Aberdeen Angus and Hereford breeds. They are a fine lot and Dean Iddings expects them to win some prizes. For the sales ring there are three shorthorns and two Herefords. Shorthorns include the mammoth herd bull of the university farm, Corner Stone Prince, which has been the head of the Shorthorn herd for the ' past two seasons. He is a three-year old and weighs 2400 pounds and has been a prize winner at northwest shows where his mammoth size al ways attracted much attention. Ow ing to his relationship with many of the females of the herd it is impos sible to use him longer and he will be offered for sale. Archie Kane, herdsman, aecom panied the stock and will be assisted j by David Sullivan, a short course ag- j ricultural student from Rupert, Idaho, j who is taking a stock judging course. | Professor C. W. Hickman, head of the department of animal husbandry, will go by passenger train and will be in attendance at the show and sale. Dean Iddings is not yet certain whether he will be able to get away to attend the show and sale but will go if he can spare the time from the work at the university farm. The loss of the university herd of fat sheep by fire several months ago prevents the showing of sheep at the fat stock show this year, but Dean Iddings has started to build up an other fat sheep herd for next year and already has a good start toward a prize winning herd. Several fine animals have been secured from vari ous parts of the United States for the foundation of this herd. The IDAHÜ WINS THE FOOT BALL GAME TÛDAÏ-SCDRE 7 TU 6 Another quarantine at Pullman, is sued Thursday, prevented the attend nce expected from that town which had promised to bring 1300 "rooters" to the game played here today. In stead of 1300 only about 400 Pullman people were in attendance at the game. These came on the regular trains and by automobile and marched through the streets of Moscow sing ing, cheering and waving the W. S. C. colors. A parade headed by the S. A. T.

His many CHICAGO.—Who have been more economical, men or women, during the conservation period of the war ? Men —that is the answer of trade sta tistios. A State street department store manager said; "Women have bought twice as much in our store as men, during the war. A jeweler said: "Women have bought two-thirds of all the jewelry sold. This includes diamonds and pearls which have doubled in price since the war began but are safe investments because they will go higher for several years after the war.'' A garment manufacturer n WOMEN SPENDING MORE THAN THE MEN GET GOOD WAGES DURING WAR TIMES—SPEND FOR CLOTHES AND JEWELRY said: "Sales of women's dress goods this year have been a third greater than last." The merchants point in explanation to the fact that more women are working than ever before and mak ing good wages. Thousands of men, on the other hand, have gone away to war. Purchases of clothes seem to prove, however, that men are natur ally more economical than women. Women are buying more clothes than ever. Men are buying less. This is proved by the showing- of the tailor ing trade. While the army drafts have seriously affected this trade, tailors say their older customers, who are not within the draft age, have decreased their patronage and are ordering fewer suits in a season." Idaho's favor. Whistle blew for end of first half. Idaho defeated W. S. C. in the best ■ foot ball game played on the Univer sity of Idaho gridiron in many years, the final score being 7 to 6 in Idaho's favor. W. S. C. made a touch down but failed to kick gpal in the first quarter. In the second quarter Idaho made a touch down and kicked goal, winning by a single point. Neither side was able to score in the third and fourth quarters. The teams were very evenly matched and the game was the closest, fierciest and most in tensely interesting played here in years. About 1,000 persons saw the game. Pullman did not send as large a crowd as wâs expected and Moscow did not turn out as well as she should have done, but all are well satisfied. It Was Not G. W. Barnes, The Star-Mirror has been asked to state that it was not G. W. Barnes, who was arrested and fined for drunk enness, but G. W. Barge, the mistake in the name being made by taking the report over the telephone. This clears Mr. Barnes who denied that he had even had a chance to get drunk.

Idaho,]-®—- — i -I (Continued on page 3) BELL FOUND GUILTY IN FED ERAL COURT AND GETS TWO YEARS IN PRISON The SCHOOL BOARD TAKES ACTION ON INFLUENZA SITUATION STUDENT RALLY PARADE IN BUSINESS SECTION FOLLOWED BY BONFIRE AROUSES ENTHUSIASM Recalling "the days of real sport" when a game between W. S. C. and the University of Idaho drew crowds from 100 miles or more and aroused every bit of "fighting blood" in Mos cow people, the parade and rally of Idaho students last night was en joyed by old-timers. It brought back Vividly the times when the "Idaho spirit" was rampant and the ' people of Moscow loved and supported the college sports. It forecasts a big crowd at the foot ball game today when W. S. C. meets Idaho in what is hoped to be a fight to a finish with the victory on the Idaho side. Beginning immediately after 7 o'clock the yelling started and it grew in volume as the students gathered from all parts of town and from the university until it made a great roar. As the young men and girls of the university marched through the streets they were joined by others until more than 1000 were marching, singing, shouting and try ing to make as much noise as possible. The band added much to the rythm of the marching songs. Townspeople gathered on the streets and watched the marchers and joined in the noise making. At the corner of Main and Third streets the rally proper, was held. Yellmasters led the students in cheer ing for each player, for the univer sity, for its faculty members and for everything in, about and connected with the university. When one yell master's voice weakened to a stage whisper he was relieved by another and another until half a dozen had worn out their voices in leading the cheering. Then, with the band leading and students singing the "serpentine" march was started and the gang headed for the fair grounds where several wagon loads of combustible material had been gathered during the day for the big bonfire, which was surely "some fire" and lighted up the country for a mile around, bringing out the tall grain elevators and the university buildings in glar ing lines against the dark sky. Thousands of persons watched the fire, Sixth street being lined with automobile loads of citizens while the grand stand was filled with students who cheered lustily as the fire burned, TO SUGGESSFUUY FEED LIVESTOCK DR. CARROL TELLS HOW LIVE STOCK CAN BE FED AT A PROFIT IN WAR TIMES Livestock can be fed successfully even in war times. The high cost of feeding stuffs makes the use of well-balanced ra tions vital. Any mistakes are almost sure to eat up the profits, and profits the farmer must have or else stop feed ing. But this is not all : ordinary feeds can often be replaced by some equally ordinary but hitherto unused and much cheaper product. Moreover all animals cannot with profit be fed the same ra tions. These and other equally impor tant and timely problems are dealt with in Dr. W. E. Carroll's "Feeding Farm Animals" just issued by the Utah Ex periment Station as circular No. 32 : Dr. Carroll is an authority on animal nutrition. The Uaited States army has recognized this and taken him from us temporarily to supervise the feeding of cavalry horses in one of our national army cantonments. About two weeks before he left to report for service he turned in this circular for publication. It is fresh, well-written, and to the point. It is now ready for distribution. Persons interested may secure copies by writing to the Utah Experiment Sta tion, Logan, Utah. Merely asking for circular No. 32 will bring a copy by re turn mail. The claim ,pf, plaintiff is that for 15 years under license from the United States government they were in pos session of the property . In 1910 the reservation was thrown open to set tlement and defendant took the land with the knowledge of plaintiff's right, and continued the use of land up to 1917, when plaintiff went to re move property, and defendant refused to allow plaintiff to remove it. The company asks damages, or property which Is valued at $1000. LUMBER COMPANY SUES COEÜR D'ALENE MAN COEUR D'ALENE.—Suit has been filed against J. D. Baughman by the Duluth Lumber company to retain its property, consisting of two frame buildings, a boarding house, 900 feet of pipe and a water tank, all situated in the Coeur d'Alene Indian reserva tion. The school board met again this morning for further consideration of the matter of opening the schools. At a short session yesterday it was voted to keep the schools closed until December 30th. The time lost and the possibility of further loss is creating a serious problem for the school authorities. If the school can not be opened on the above date it will practically be impossible for the students to com plete the customary two semesters 1 work, and the work will have to be confined to the completion of half year's course of study, a loss of a half year's time on the part of ap proximately 1200 students; it will prevent the senior class of 45 from graduating; and it will also mean a large financial loss to the tax payers of the district. The cost of operat ing the schools of the district is about .$50,000 per year. The loss of one half of this year will mean approxi mately a $25,000 loss to the tax pay ers. Superintendent Rich has a plan worked out whereby if the schools can open on December 30th and operate continuously throughout the remain der of the regular school year and for three weeks thereafter, or until about June 20th it will be possible to complete the usual year's work. This plan will mean an additional expense for the year of about $4000. No action was taken by the board in reference to this matter, but the plan was looked upon with favor by the board. The ability to carry it out is dependent upon whether the epidemic will permit the schools to be opened on December 30th. It was the unanimous opinion of the board that every endeavor should be made to stamp out the influenza between now and the time set for opening of the schools. It was shown that conditions had gradually im proved during the past two weeks, irrespective of the fact that the quarantine had been lifted to some extent. It was the belief of the board that if concerted action could be had on the part of all the people toward stamping out the disease for the next three weeks, the town could be practically freed from the menace, except from an occasional sparodic case. It was felt by the board that the possible serious loss on the part of the students and tax payers war ranted it in asking the assistance of the people in preventing same, and the following resolutions were unani mously passed: "Whereas, there has been a consid erable loss of time in the schools of this district caused by an epidemic of influenza, and "Whereas, any further loss of time after December 30th, will mean a loss of practically a one-half year of schooling on the part of all the stu dents; the liability of the forty-five members of the senior class to gradu ate this year, and a considerable financial loss on the part of the tax payers of the district, and, "Whereas, as the ability of the board to open the schools is depend ent on the prevalence of influenza on December 30th, and, "Whereas, it has been determined that the influenza is spread very largely by personal contact and close personal association, now therefore "Be it resolved, that this, board for and on behalf of the patrons and tax payers of the district ask the con certed action of all the people in an endeavor to stamp out the menace now in our midst by: "1st. Refraining from attending any unnecessary gatherings of any kind and character. "2nd. Taking all precautions pos sible that will minimize the possibility of their own infection and that of others. "3rd. Reporting any and all sus picious cases of illness that may de velop in their immediate household to the city health officers. Complying conscientiously with any and all rules or regulations that may be promulgated by the city and county health officers. "BOARD OF TRUSTEES, "Moscow Independent School 4th. District No. 5.
