There was a hot contest on
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
The vote was being take® in the
legislature and when Metcalf's name
called he arose in his seat hold
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.

THE TROPHY TRAIN
SOUTHERN IDAHO GREETS CAP
TURED TROPHIES WITH GREAT
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 |

pledged the support of the banks of
