Bishop O'Reilly Speaks
on Patriotism
^ Declares It Duty of All to Support
Nation in War Declared by the
Lawful Civil Authorities of the
United States.
) Tlie Catltolic congregation of St.
Edward's church in Twin Falls and
,/ of the church of the Immaculate Con
/ ceptioa ut Buhl, were much edified
Sunday aiid Monday by the visit of Rt.
Rev. Charles J. O'Reilly,-bishop of the
diocese of Baker, Ore., who confirmed
large classes In botli cities and dedi
cated the Eiuhl church. _
Bishop O'Reilly came to perform the
episcopal offices named because of the
vacancy created by the death of the
late Rt. Rev. A. J. Glorieux, bishop ot
Boise, to Vrhom a successor has not
yet been nimied. He arrived Saturday
and during the time not engaged in
religious • duties was escorted by
members of the congregation over the
tract and to Great Shoshone falls. He
expressed the greatest surprise and
admiration for Twin Fails and the
country round about and declared that
though he expected much, he had no
idea thtjt it was so prosperous and
well developed as lie found it to be.
Bishop O'Reilly celebrated the early
mass here at which thirty-three chil
dren received first Holy Communion,
and delivered an appropriate sermon.
After this mass the first communicants
werfe entertained at breakfast at the
'■e<Aory as guests of the pastor, Rev.
N/ p. Hahn.
High mass, which was sung by
Fattier Haim, was offered up in com
pliance with the request of President
Wilson, for success of American arms
and for peace with justice. At tills
mass Bishop O'Reilly spoke on the du
ties of citizens to their country under
^the law ot God as laid down In the
ß holy scriptures.
At 3 o'clock in the afternoon a class
of sixty-six was confirmed. On this
occasion Bishop O'Reilly spoke from
the text: "Then they laid their hands
upon them and they received the
Holy Ghost" After the confirmation
ceremonies the members of the first
communion class were enrolled in the
À scapular- This service closed with
solemn benediction.
The altar was artistically decorated
t with roses, carnations and other flow
jfc* ers and presented a beautiful appear
Rl&ince. The singing of the choir was of
JrSphc highest order and was compli
Kînented warmly by Bishop O'Reilly,

Oregon, in his sermon at high mass
A \à> n St. Edward's Catholic church Sun
' |way, dwelt at length on the relation

\M Bishop O'Reilly took for his text
«Matt. XXII:21: "Render, therefore,
pto Caesar the tilings that are Caesar's;
and,to God. the tilings that are God's."
In substance and in part he said:
"It was insidious question which
the hypocritical Pharisees and Herod
luns asked Cur Divine Lord on this
occasion, when they inquired of Him
whether it was lawful to pay tribute
to Caesar or not. They thought that
they had Him trapped, but looking in
to their hearts and seeing their wick
edness, He confounded them and at
'VJie same time laid down a principle
*T>fining for all time the relation of
[ the human being to God and the cit
izen to the state. This text, which is

cost, is peculiarly appropriate for this

the president of this great country,
has asked all the people to assemble
in the customary places of worship
and pray to God to grant victory to
American arms and crown this victory
f with a just and honorable peace
"It is not difficult for us Catholics
to obey this request, shice we are
boiuid in conscience to obey those in

Patriotism was a dominant note in
the proceedings of the called meet

which met in the rooms of the Poca

The association, which was attend

to remit all dues and charges against
them while away, and also voted tojj)

one of the dealers put it up to a
j TI mes reporter this way :
; -you see. the price is fixed at $8.15
which includes $1.25 tor unloading,
.shrinkage and overhead expenses and
1 profits. Now, the first and third items
according to the figures of the coal
men here, average $!TO. The remain

shrinkage, so there is no profit. We
are a n owed charge 75 cents for
hauling, and no more, but the draymen
here charge not less than a dollar for
hauling a ton, so you see that if a

does not know anything about the cost
of delivering coal. The new ruling
will m ean the end ot screening and

will handle the coal from patriotic
motives, they cannot afford to make
trips to get a supply on hand. In re
sard to delivery, they cannot afford
to hire men to haul coal and the law
will not permit them to make any
agreement to charge more than thc
"5 cents allowed, so in many cases
it will mean that having bought coal
a purchaser must then go out and hire

WASHINGTON, Nov. 1—The Italian
army is falling back in good order,
according to an official statement
reaching the state department late
this afternoon from Rome. The tele
gram which was dated yesterday says
the attacks of the Teutons are les
selling 1 and the situation has united
all political factions behind the gov
ernment. The war office announced
that the Italian troops were forced to
withdraw to the TagUamento, hut at
the same time effectively cheeked the
advancing Austro-Germaiis. and are
prepared to make a stand.
ROME. Nov. 1.—Italy's army is no
longer retreating. Dispatches from
the front today declared that the ad
vance of the German and Austro
Hungarian troops is being brought to
a halt at every point.
General Cadorna has effected his
movements with a very small loss of
men. the dispatches said. The indica
lions are that a great struggle is ini

believed here to have brought up the
major part of his reserve troops to

which was apparently prepared for an
attack, routed a concentration of one

Enemy artillery fire east and north
east of Ypres was very active.
Thirty-five or more aeroplanes took
part in a raid over England last night.
Lord French announced that the
clouds prevented the British airmen
from giving decisive battle to the ene

from the moment the German planes
first were sighted and it was due to
the British airmen that so few ma
chines reached London.
BARIS. Nov. 1.—Thc relay shell and
the bouncing bomb are the latest Ger
man inventions in frightfulness. They
have just made their appearance on
the western front and it is believed the
uIIIch are already making preparations
to follow suit and pay the Germans in
their own kind,
The relay shell is sixteen inches in
diameter, roughly, and is fired from a
naval type Skoda gun, with flat tra
jectory and high velocity. It 1s fitted
with a contact instantaneous fuse, so
that the bursting charge is detonate
by a five pound pressure on the nose
of the projectile. Striking a piece of
newspaper would set off the charge.
When the shell bursts, it hurls for
j ward about 50 small bombs, the size of
| hand grenades, which themselves fly
good distance and explode at touch.
The effect is much the same as with
1 shrapnel except that the bombs are a
great deal more deadly, each one
j bursting into twelve or fifteen hun
dred parts and scattering bits of steel
I for a distance ot many yards.
The bouncing bombs are dropped by
German aviators. They are provided;
v!t!i a resllent base of leather, rubber
.and rope, which makes them go up

Ten men, stevedores, are missing

fire broke out in five places simul

J. M. Davis operating vice president

Positive evidence that the fire was

the Baltimore & Ohio guards and the
firemen stationed at the pier. These
men stated the* a few seconds before
the flames broke out in five sections
of the pier they saw what appeared to

followed and the flames came imme

The chief watchman of the pier stat
ed that five minutes before the entire
structure was in flames he had made
a complete round of the pier and had
found everything to be in usual shape,
While the police were pushing their
investigation into the big fire, another
blaze broke out in the Baltimore &

a mile from the scene of the first fire,
This blaze was quickly extinguished
without damage.
