While Boise, Spokane and some other "big centers" have been beating the tom tom in the Victory loan drive and towns in the state much larger than Sandpoint and with much more pretensions to wealth, have gotten only with the hardest kind 'over" of work, Sandpoint subscribed its Victory loan without a public meeting except the exhibition of the war trophy train, without a subscription Agent out and without batting an eye. Sandpoint has "eaten up" every war loan, every drive of whatever sort in the name of the war and stands ready to "go over" again any time the government says it is necessary. The success of the Victory loan in the county is due in large measure to Earl Farmin, the county chairman, who has been thinking, eating and breathing Victory loan drive ever since the campaign opened up. He had fertile soil to work on in Bon ner county, but he has been an inten sive gardener, and Sandpoint's and Bonner county's early Victory loan crop was due to his efforts.—Pend d'Oreille Review. ft ft ft r ' A merchant who thinks he can get along without the use of advertising is like the girl who thinks she can catch a husband by not bothering with nice clothes. Advertising has made many a store, just like clothes have won many a husband.—Kootenai Valley Times. 1*3 ft» ftâ WHY THIS UNNECESSARY NOISE There is much complaint from people living in the residence dis tricts of Moscow which have paved Streets, tecaus« of the unnecessary made by automobile parties, es noise pecially on Sunday afternoons. Com plaint come especially from the resi dence district in the northeastern part of the town, which is a favorite section for automobile parties be cause of the splendid streets. But there are many babies in that part of town. They are generally put to sleep in the afternoon, which, es pecially on Sunday, is the time the automobiles visit that neighborhood. It is very annoying to the mother of one or two or three or four babies, just as she gets her loved one, or more to sleep, to have an automobile party come past the house with muf i fier wide open, the engine making more noise than a hoist in a big mine, with horns shrieking and the occu pants of the cars shouting at the top of their voices. People who- would never think of being rude or boisterous elsewhere seem to think that when they get in an automobile all rules of common courtesy are laid aside and that the only way to have a good time and attract attention is by making a holy show of themselves. Why not "cut out" this "rough stuff?" GERMAN PEOPLE ACT BABYISH. It is really amusing to learn of the Kowl that goes up from German people over the peace terms. It is refreshing to hear the words "brutal peace force" from the people who re joiced when Edith Cavill was murder ed by German soldiers acting under orders from German officials; from the people who dismissed the schools in order that the children might re joice over the sinking of the Lusi tania with 112 babies under five years old; from the people who announced, when they expected to win the war that "the only peace will be a peace of the sword, dictated by my glorious armies." Of course this peace offered Ger many by the allies is, as they claim death peace" for it means the death of Germany's plans to rule the world and make the people of other nations the slaves of the kaiser. It is "a peace of force" because the German people will be forced to ac cept it. But it is mild, Christian-like and easy compared to the terms that would have been forced upon Eng land, France, Belgium, the United States and the other countries had Germany won. And had Germany won these German brutes at home who are howling against "brutality" now would have gloated over the suf ferings they imposed upon other countries as they gloated over the sufferings of Belgium .and France. It is not a peace of justice because its terms are not nearly as harsh as should have been imposed upon the Huns, but it is all that they can pay and that will suffice. «1 «a B. L. FRENCH FOR SENATOR. The Pend d'Oreille Review, publish ed at Sandpoint, suggests that Hon. Burton L. French, of Moscow, con gressman for the First Idaho district, become a candidate for United States senator to succeed Nugent, in 1920 and leave the field for congressman open for Captain A. H. Connor, of Sandpoint, for the republican nom ination for congress. The Review ar gues that Congressman French can land the nomination for United States senator and be elected and that Con- nor, who is a wounded veteran of the great war, is the logical candidate The suggestion has much merit. I Burton L - French is certainly sena torial material and would reflect ^ onor on Idaho in the upper house ^ as re Hccted it upon the state in I° wer house. That Moscow and nor thern Idaho would give Congress man French a great vote for United States senator goes without as saying. It is too bad that Mr. French had to cut his visit in Moscow short in order to hurry to Washington, but he realizes that his duty is to look after the state's interests and he has never neglected his duty. It is to be hoped he will return to Moscow for a longer stay before the regular sion of congress opens in December. ses El Rl ft The allies, while waiting for Ger many's final answer to the peace treaty, is getting everything in readi ness to close in on the Huns, shut off their food supplies, take territory and begin a blockade to which the former blockade of which more Germany complained so bitterly, will appear as "freedom of the seas." Max Hardin, one of Germany's really far sighted men, has called attention of the Germans to the fact that the peace terms are no harder than Ger many deserves or should have pected and again reminds the German people that they are the vanquished, not the conquerors. ex te ^ P® Six months ago yesterday the fight ing with Germany ended and the arm istice went into effect. Yet we are still receiving the casualty lists of the "killed, wounded and missing. 1 er y day the newspapers of the coun try get these lists. If Germany re fuses to sign the peace treaty an other war will be on before the Ev cas ualty list of the lagt one is completed. .j, ^ -fei- + + t + + + Heavy Sentence Affirmed.

Two typographical errors occurred in the communication of Governor W. J. McConnell in Saturday's paper, on the silver question. In one place the Governor wrote: "Bryan told us so but we were too angry to listen to reason. instead of angry. In another place he wrote "made it impossible to use these coins as a medium of redemp tion" and it appeared "possible" in stead of impossible, thus completely changing the sense.

DIG OWN PITS; BURIED ALIVE Murders Were Without Provocation and the Victims Were Largely of Thrifty or Intelligent Classes or Servants of Church. Omsk.—indisputable evidence of the massacre by the bolshevik! of more than 2,000 civilians in and near the town of Osa lias been .obtained by -Messrs. Sluimonds and Emerson and Dr. Rudolph Teusler of the American Red Cross, who have just returned from Perm, Osa and other re-occupied Russian territory. Approximately 500 persons were killed at Osa and 1,500 in the surrounding districts. Osa, which had a population of 10, 000, was so denuded of males by the bolsheviki that General Casagrande, upon the occupation of the town, was obliged to telegraph to Ekaterinburg for men to administer civic affairs. Dogs Dig Up Bodies. In addition to securing verbal and documentary evidence the American Red Cross officials witnessed the ex huming of scores of victims from trenches, where they were buried sometimes several deep in graves re vealed by the digging of dogs. The murders were without provoca tion. and the victims were largely of the thrifty and intelligent classes or servants- of the church, which latter it was the announced intention of the bolsheviki to exterminate. The evidence discloses almost un thinkable atrocities. A blacksmith, by economies, had attained a shop. He was required to pay 5,000 rubles; be cause he could not, he was shot. A man was shot be> anse he lived in a brick house. All attorneys and jurists were killed, and doctors, whose serv ices were not required for the moment, were disposed of in a similar manner. A woman whose husband and two sons had been seized applied, to the commissar for information ns to theh ijde, She jyas told they had been taken To Perm. After repeating her visit several times she was Informed that if she bothered the commissar again she would he shot, as they had been. The body of a woman was exhumed and identified in the presence of the Americans as the wife of a general through jewels sewed in the lining of her clothing, of which relatives were aware. Another woman was compelled to fetch a lamp and gaze upon her murdered sons for the amusement of the slayers. A wife required to pay 1,000 rubles for the release of her husband bor rowed 800 and paid it over ; later she returned with the remainder, gnd tjien was informed that her husband had "there All were killed without anj lar cases, form of trial. Victims Dig Own Graves. The soviet called a meeting and pre pared lists of those to die. The houses proscribed were visited by squads, the doors were smashed In, and the vic tims dragged to the edge of the town and forced to dig their own graves. TJjpse who resisted were shot in the streets. A survivor testified that he had seen men thrown into a pit and burled alive. This testimony has been con firmed 'by bodies exhumed, the clenched hands of which were clinging to the mud at the bottom of the pit. The only spark of humanity discov able was that in confiscating the be longings of the residents. In some In stances where there was a family of small children, the family was permit ted to retain one cow out of several. Occasionally a peasant was allowed to keep his worst horse. The bolshevik attitude toward the church was uncompromising. Priests hunted unmercifully. The evi were dence showed that men were slain whose only offense was that they worked as sextons or caretakers of churches.

Custom Officials Fear Exodus Will R*. suit in Great Labor Shortage. New York.—Euriched by war work, aliens are leaving this country at die rate of more than 1,000 a day, It was learned here from custom officials, who expressed fear that, with the possibil ity that congress may limit immigra tion for the next four years, the United States will face a serious labor short age, instead of a condition of unem ployment. Since the signing of the armistice, it was said, Italians, Greeks, Span iards and Portuguese have been pour ing out of tile United Staes through tills port. Since November 76,221 pass ports have been vised at the custom house, and since December, 33,000 aliens have sailed. Every ship clear ing for Mediterranean ports has sailed with a full steerage, so that rates have Jumped from $-10 to $80. Custom officials estimate that an enormous sum has been taken out of the country since the exodus began. Each alien, it is said, carries with him from $1.000 to $7.000 to enable him to live in his native land in greater ease than lie ever enjoyed before. Since April 2, when all outgoing passengers were forced to pay their income taxes before leaving, more than $68,000 has been collected. Byron R. Newton, collector of the port, who has been asked by members of the United States senate and house immigration committee to reduce the exodus to statistics, said today more than 90 per cent of the aliens are Italians, and that "something ought to be done to check the outflow." People are learning that it is only a waste of time and money to take medicine internally for chronic and muscular rheumatism ninety-nine out of a hundred cases one or the other of these varieties. All that is really necessary to afford relief is to apply Chamberlain's Lini ment freely. Try it. It costs but 36 cents per bottle. Large size 60 cents.

Dr. W. F. Pogue, formerly deputy state veterinarian, committed suicide by taking poison after a still for ma king whiskey had been found on his ranch some distance from Orangeville, a few days ago. The United States deputy marshal had arrested AI. Arthur, a farm hand employed by Dr. iPogu©, for operating the still and had found the still in the cellar, but Dr. Pogue was not arrested nor un der suspicion. He had offered to take the officer and his prisoner to Grange ville in his car and while the car was being repaired and made ready for the trip, swellowed poison and died in a short time. Al. Arthur will be brought to Moscow for trial at the term of federal court which opened this morning.
