An investigation of his office and a strict accounting of some of his recent ac tions should be demanded. The sec retary of labor has made two bad breaks recently that will reflect upon the administration and they should not be permitted to go unrebuked. The appointment of H, F. Samuels, bolshevik candidate for governor of Idaho; a man shown to be notoriously in sympathy with the I. W. W. and the bolshevik element; the man who, as prosecuting attorney of Shoshone county refused to prosecute the men who blew up the Bunker Hill & Sul livan concentrator and murdered sev eral men, because they "are my friends and political associated," is a direct insult to the people of this state. The voters of Idaho had re pudiated Samuels by a vote of more than two to one and yet he is given a responsible position, and sent on a foreign mission among the bolshev ists of Europe as a representative of tabor. He is placed in a position where he can do much harm to the honest laborers and the honest citi zens of the United States. But that is not all. Mr. Wilson, as head of the department of labor, has set free 12 of the anarchists and bolshevists that had been gathered up at Seattle, Spokane and Chicago and sent to Ellis Island for deporta tion. These men had had trials be fore federal courts and had been or They appealed and dered deported, their appeals were rejected and the decision of the court which ordered their deportation was sustained. They sued out writs of habeaus corpus but this failed to get their freedom. Now Mr. Wilson, head of the department «f labor, a member of the president's cabinet, releases these alien anarch ists and bolshevists on parole. We do not believe in harassing * President Wilson while he is on dhe great task of securing peace for the Wiilq, but these acts of a member •f hi« official fapiily should not be forgotten nor overlooked and when he returns he should call Secretary Wilson upon the carpet and require Wm to explain these two acts, with ^üany otWs Ö ßjf shown that his I sympathies are too strongly with the radical element of labor, — -— ■ ISs Pa Pa FEELING THE FILIBUSTER. Already we are beginning to feel ihe effects of the filibuster organized at the call of Senator Lodge and car lied on through the closing days of the senate by Senators La Follette and Sherman. The government em ployment agency at Moscow is to be closed because there are no funds with which to carry on the work of securing places for the returned sol diers. The filibuster killed the ap propriation bill and the order has been sent out to close these employ ment bureaus. Thus the soldiers who gave up their jobs to. go forth and fight the hun, is to be the first to feel the dire effects of this unwise act of partizan politicians of small cali bre. Orders have been received to close the Moscow employment office. The Spokane, Portland, Seattle, Ta coma and Boise offices have been or dered to close on March 21 and it is not likely the one at Moscow will be permitted to continue. The New York World says: "Another serious result of the fili buster is that agencies of the depart ment of labor will have to close their work for lack of funds. The United States employment service will have to discontinue its registration offices at thw demobilization camps, through which it has been placing men in jobs at the rate of 100,000 per month." Some of the opinions of newspaper editors concerning the closing of the congress in a filibuster are interest The New York World calls it » mg. a "slacker senate and a congress po The Chicago j litically illiterate.' News says it made a "pitiful record" It ex andthe f etroit * ews pired, not in a blaze of glory, but unwept, unhonored and roundly curs The New York Sun says the ed.' passing of the 65th congress was "good riddance. The New York World says: "The failure to pass the $760,000, 000 railroad appropriation bill is staggering blow for the roads may now be compelled to go into the open market for funds in direct competi tion with the treasury department in its efforts to place the Victory loan." It would appear that the politicians who engineered the filibuster are re garded by the public generally in about the same light as the labor leaders who engineered the strike in the shipyards of the Pacific coast and called the sympathetic strike at Se attle. PS », B3 Evidence is accumulating that Sec retary of Agriculture Huston is en tirely unfitted by temperament, edu cation, training and geographical lo cation, for the high office he holds. The department of agriculture deals with the most important part of Am erican industrial life, has shown himself to be a narrow partizan, with no knowledge of the country north of Mason and Dixon's Mr. Huston ... , , . justly celebrated line, and no desire to deal fairly with the north. Mr. Huston is unable to realize-that there is any agricultural product except cotton. He should resign and Presii-/ dent Wilson should appoint a north-) who knows something about em man agriculture to be head of that im portant department. If Congress had still been in ses sion when the American bill for $750,000,000 damages against Ger many was announced in Paris, some one would add a count to the in dictment against Wilson by demand ing that the bill be raised to 750 billions.—Springfield Republican. President Wilson, notes the London Globe with apparent satisfaction, returns to Europe with greatly di minished prestige." ,not true, but if it were true it would be also the prestige of America which the opposing senators had lowered.— Springfield Republican. It is probably | j ! 1 ! ; OH, BOY! Premier Clemenceau has accepted the presidency of the Boy Scouts of France. A soft answer won't turn away a bulldog's wrath. MR Try This For Sour Stomach.

Remains of Cambrai Home. HELD PRISONER FOR FOUR YEARS | ! HID PRICELESS CITY RECORD Refused to Leave Post When Hun Hordes Poured Through Hi« Coun try—Tells of Cruelties Inflict ed by Invader«. Paris.—There reached Paris recent ly U fine-looking old French gentleman, ; gad . eyedi hollow-cheeked, | y ears he had been held prisoner by, | the Germans In the city of Cambrai, | He had seen the Hun kaiser three For four times passing through the streets of* his city which previously had been swept by the French womea. Night after night he had been forced to go and sit in the railroad stations of the city while the British bombed them. He had seen his friends, people once wealthy and of high birth, sent out to dig trenches, to buj-y the dead and to cultivate and weed the fields. For two years he had only soup and cocoa for his dinner and a semi-monthly allow ance of three-quarters of a pdund of meat and black bread. Henri Bergier reached Paris Just as the news came from the front that British and American troops had freed his holne - As soon as he is stron K enou « h t0 travel agaln lle wiU return there to find, if possible, the priceless records of the city which he hid In 1914 when the Huns swept across Bel gium and invaded northern France. Stuck to His Post. As a judge of a tribunal or court of Cambrai, Bergier refused to leave ids post when the German hordes poured through his country in August, 1914. By a trick, of chance he bad just sent his wife and three daughters to Boulpgne-sur-Mer, on the coast of France, for a holiday and was plan ning to join them early Iq September. The meeting was deferred just four He was captured, but was , ... u... . . .. spared the bitterness of seeing his family subjected to the humiliations which came to the other women of Cambrai. His wife and daughters at once volunteered for hospital service and worked so heroically for three years that they were decorated by the I.French government with tiie medal i "des épidémies et du dévouement." The story which Bergier brought 1 was one of want and suffering. | The Germans held him as hostage so he was not maltreated. Whenever the city was bombed, however, he was sent with-jthree other judges, also held as hostages, to sit in the railway sta tions so that they would be killed if years. , . the centers were destroyed. The people of the city who did not hold official positions were treated more summarily. The women were alt ^nade to do menial work of some ; kind, such as sweeping the streets of the pity or cultivating and weed ing (he field?,- Tfie young boys and I men were sent out to dig trenches and I to bury the dead. No one was al ! lowed to leave his lodgings after seven ( o'clock at night, and no lights were I allowed at any time. Turned Out of Homes. Family after family was turned out , of homes to make pl.tre for the wives 1 of the German officers who came to j and for German actresses and sing stay in Cambrai with their husbands i ers who were brought from Germany ' to stage performances of grand opera I and to make merry in the casinos. I The prisons were kept filled with "offenders." One woman was thrown* into jail because she had hidden a copper vessel, a family heirloom, In defiance of the German order requisi tioning everything of metal from the people. Another woman was arrest eft because she read a copy of a French paper which had been dropped into the city by allied airplanes. Early in September Bergler was told that an exchange had been effected and he was to return to France. He would he permitted to take with him what belongings he could carry. He found an old baby carriage with two wheels off and patched it up with wheels from a dismantled gun. His clothing, though threadbare, still held together, but he had no shoes (it all. He took the leather portfolio which his youngest daughter had used to carry to school and made a sort of footgear out of it, using for soles the belting from a machine In an aban doned factory. Part of his journey to Belgium he made on foot, pushing his belongings along in the old baby carriage Part he made by train. From Belgium M. Bergier went to where he rejoined his family.
