He was caught with a suit case filled with bolshevist literature, some of it actually trasonable. He is being held for trial. I > The arrest of Metcalf brings to memory » aad affair in which he ' - *was 'the principal actor more than 25 years ago. Metcalf was a mem ber of the legislature of the state of United States Washington when senators were elected by the legis There was a hot contest on lature. for United States senator with Wat son C. Squires, of Seattle, a million aire, and Judge Calkins, of Tacoma, a poor man of great ability and who would have been a shining light in the senate, as the opposing candi dates. Old timers will remember the bitterness of the fights between Se attle and Tacoma, which were nearer the same size and importance then than now. The vote was being take® in the legislature and when Metcalf's name called he arose in his seat hold was ing $600 in crisp new bills, which he said had been paid to him to vote for Calkins, and he walked forward and laid the money on the speaker's desk and posing as a "paragon of virtue" tried to make a speech tellipg how he ancl several others had been bribed by Judge Calkins, the poor man, to vote for him and against Squires, the Seattle millionaire. -> Metcalf never finished that speech. Members of the legislature were for tearing him to pieces and it took sev eral policemen to escort him to his boarding house, been done. Spuires was elected and Judge Calkins soon died of a broken "heart. He took sick soon after the episode and never recovered. An in vestigation by the legislature follow ed and the story was shown to be a fake gotten up for the purpose of de feating Judge Calkins, who seemed to be in the lead. Metcalf was ex pelled from the legislature in dis grace and he disappeared from view for many years. Later he bobbed up and again regained some prominence in politics and was haled .before the court for violation of one He was constantly in But the evil had supreme of its orders, trouble ancj sunk to the level of a bolshevist and is now working with and the bolshevik ele It is to be hoped that he will ment. be convicted and given a long term He has already in a federal prison, done too much mischief to be per mitted to continue at large.

THE TROPHY TRAIN AROUSES INTEREST SOUTHERN IDAHO GREETS CAP TURED TROPHIES WITH GREAT ENTHUSIASM SHOSHONE, Idaho.—(Special to The Star-Mirror.)—Thousands of citi zens of southern Idaho gathered at trophy special touring the state for the Victory loan. A strong spring wind didn't keep the people from turning out to welcome the train and examine the giant cannons, tanks, gas bombs and other engines of destruc tion used in the great world war. State Chairman Gwinn declared last night when the day's work for the party with the train was finished and which was close to midnight at Sho shone, that the spirit* shown by the crowds in the southern Idaho towns made him hopeful that Idaho would be one the first states to report its quota paid. "The people are behind this Vcitory loan," Chairman Gwinn said. "You can't tell me that the thousands who gathered to see these war relics and to listen so intently to the speakers are not heart and soul and poeketbook behind the govern ment to the finish. I am expecting Idaho to go across neck and neck with | the first states in the Union if not ■ actually the first." Gov. D. W. Davis was with the | -train yesterday and will remain with : it the entire week. He spoke at ev ery station on Sunday's schedule, ■ which included Kuna, Mountain ! Home, Summett; Glenns Ferry, King | Hill, Bliss, Gooding and Shoshone. j Today the train is covering the j Hailey and Hill City branches of the O. S. L. Captain Edgar T. Haley, ! recently returned from overseas J ere he served in the aviation, was j icer of the day on the special yes- | terday, and had charge of the ar rangements, introducing the speakers | and making out the program for en- | tertainment, which are adapted to ; each town according to the length of | time allotted the train therein. the stations between and including Kuna and Shoshone yesterday to view the war relies carried on the 3 im lŒQ «i* 7* ¥ ill Varnished Surfaces Make House work Easy When your floors begin to look shabby, and the worn spots show up on the steps, your work of keeping them clean is almost doubled.

COLLINS & ORLAND HARDWARE CO. MOSCOW, IDAHO Local speakers yesterday were Will H. Gibson, at Mountain Home; H. H. McMasters, O. S. L. agent at Glenn's Ferry; Mayor John Thomas, a prom-I inent banker of Gooding and Lincoln counties, at Gooding. Mr. Thomas pledged the support of the banks of Gooding county to the Victory loan. "We are not wanting to make a cent profit on the Victory loan," he de dared. 'Our banks Will S^Y 6 the people all the credit they "ask for the purchase of these bonds, and will carry them as long as they tell us they need th be carried. All we ask the people of Gooding county to do is to come in and make their subscrip tions and we will guarantee to see them through." Private Bert Bates, in the artillery service, and who saw action on five different fronts in France, is the ver satile entertainer of the bunch with the special. Mr. Bates vividly pictures battle scenes and incidents and holds the crowds in close attention. Owing to a cold, driving wind a meeting was held in the Bauch the atre at , Shoshone last night instead of in the open air at the train, as is the custom. The theatre was jammed with people who braved the storm to view the war trophies and hear the speakers. Governor Davis, Chairman Gwinn, Private Bates and G. J. White, county | chairman of the Victory loan drive in . Lincoln county, were the speakers, Captain Hawley presiding. When Mr. 1 ' would pledge themselves to back up the Vic tory loan, to go on record by raising their hands, the response was prac tically unanimous. Sergeant Mark Shields is with the train, organizing nd startin zations of the World which includes all soldiers, sailors and marines of the great world war. Ev ery returned service man who pos sibly can is urged to be at the train when the special makes his home town, if it is on the schedule of the Idaho tour, in order to get in touch with this organization. Train Here April 21st. The trophy train will be in Moscow Monday evening, April 21, arriving at 7:30 and leaving at 9:30. The two hours spent in Moscow ought to be long enough to permit all to go through the train and see thé tro phies and hear t$ie speeches, train will be sidetracked on the east side of the Northern Pacific depot. Judge W. F. Morgareidge, postmaster of Moscow, who is county chairman of the Victory loan drive, has been asked to secure some local speakers and a band for the visit of the train to Mos cow. The train leaves here at 9:30 g organi Veterans, War The and makes no other stop in Latah county, so if is expected that there will be many people from other towns here to view the trophies and hear the addresses. _ GET BIG BOUNTY FOR EDGEMONT, S.
