LONGLEY, General Manager *2.00 PER YEAR IN ADVANCE ALLRED'S TENTATIVE LABOR PLAN SHOWS RIGHT SPIRIT It Is quite impossible not to sympa thize with the purpose of the plan for solving tlie the labor problem out lined tentatively by Harvey Allred, head of the department of state farm markets in his address at the dinner given in honor of President E. H, Llndley, at the Perrine hotel Thurs day. Moreover, it Is impossible to escape the conclusion, that however impracticable some of the details may prove to be, the basis is laid for a discussion which will result in the working out of a practicable program. The idea of a census of all the in the state is a good one. of a complete statement of the needs of the employers of the state Is also good. This will show "where we are at." plan there would be no question of constitutionality such as would be certainly involved, were it proposed to commandeer labor and put the workmen out under the control of private employers who in the man agement of their employes we''e neither public officials nor under the management of public officials; pro vided that care is taken to draft the regulations in accordance with fun damental law. Other obstacles sug gested in a recent TIMES editorial will be largely obviated, while the in crease of the minimum wage from *2.50 a day to *3 and board will pla cate much opposition. Under the pro posed plan, there would be no duress on anyone to work for any particu lar employer, or in any particular line; provided that some productive! employment should be followed, man would be at liberty to rent ground and work for himself, to quit the service of one and enter the ser vice of another within a reasonable mer The idea everybody Under the Allred Urn, The idea Mr, A.lred •„ get everyone busy producing, not for ,, . .. , the exploitation ol any Partien ar, class, but for the cause of counti> and humanity, and he rightly assum that there Is no difference between ,, ... _ _ "'u, ^onnn lo J Ö this Jin mäii with $30,000 so far as this prin ciple is concerned.

Is Those who wou'i what is needed, not voluntarily work for themselves or others could work for nothing on tlie roads for the county. The TIMES (has always believed not without some investigation, ti. the number of "bona fide" loafers has been exaggerated in curroi were Inclined to listen to agitators this year. What it said last Thursday regarding the sugar magnates, applies to the workmen It now has in min 1 sition when everybody was reaching sillon when everybody was rea ping for everything in sight, moved some extent by the fear that the oth very unreasonable things, just as some monopolists ass ed unreasonable things, and both succeeded in getting the thing reach ed for In some instances. Just m the wealthy In many eases rose to »^ occasion this year and helped the. government to arrive at a sane .ul justmont; so tlie TIMES believes the if nnnroached workmen «ill do, if approached And this, we lie r , last year and ask unreasonable war will take a sounder viêw of things During a period of unregulated trau er fellow would reach first, some workmen asked tlie proper spirit, lieve, will include many who w< misled, through skilful misrepresen- tation, into joining the I.

The same prin ciples of human nature operate in the case of the millionaire as in the case of the workman. It is too early to pass .judgment on the tentative plan of Mr. Allred, which was frankly put forth to call for suggestions and not as final. But the spirit Is right and we are con fident will lead to sound conclâslons. In the meantime, farmers ami labor ers, especially labor organizations , , , . . , . . , should both respond to his Unit, tion for suggestions and should send them at once by telegraph if neces sarv. to him at Gooding, where a con of President Wilson to the chancel j ors 0 f u le central powers; it is , fJrin reiteration of things al , „ K .

WILSON AGAIN DEFINES THE U.S. (Continued from page one) He demanded why the reichstag resolutions of July 19, which declared for peace without an nexatlons or indemnities, had '»■sen ignored by the German chancellor. A ,„i apa i n j, e declared that nothing which is settled by military force is settled at all but would have to he reopened. i - 1 " d »o his sharp crit-, icism of the German attitude wa* the president's reference to the Austrian position enunciated by Count Czern in.

( Interested in the action of the president It had been felt for some , weeks that the unusually frank state nien.ts , of th0 , Aust ( L , » n premier had merlted a reply. Tlie German attl tude was not considering promising of course, büt senators and represen tatives have felt that the increasing anti-war sentiment n the dual em pire offered a promising ground for American action. It was felt that re iteration of the fact that the United States had no axe to grind but was sincere in desiring to make the world safe for democracy would serve to accelerate the peace sentiment in Austria. ''Seeing and conceding as he does." declared the president, "the essential principles involved and the necessity of candidly applying them, he natur ally feels that Austria can respond to the purpose of peace as expressed by the United States, with leas embarr assment .ban could Germany." The president again emphasized U)al ünited stat68 has i nl( , rnul affairs Kurope. This country has no hard and fast alms, he said, but is ready to be shown that the settle ments she has suggested are not the best or the most enduring. "Site (The United States) cannot see iter way to peace until the causes of this war are removed, its renewal rendered as nearly as may be impos ! sible." he declared. Emphatically the president declar e d that these principles the United j States regarded as fundamental to P° a( '<*, "a™, already everywhere ac cepted as imperative except among I he spokesmen of the military and an nexatlonist party in Germany. Then he added significantly: rbe tragical circumstance is that t l o one ,„ p , arty G * I ' many is appar f, ntly ": 11,inB and able to send mll lions of men to their death to pre vont what all the world now sees to be just. Four principles, the president de clared _ furnish the acid test ofwheth , ,;r it is possible for the governments to go further in a comparison of I peace views: 1 There can be no peace based upon the German position outlined by Count von Hertling, the German chancellor, in his recent address to the reichstag committee. The presi dent reiterated in the strongest lan guage that the German position makes for a continuation of the war. The Austro-Hungarian attitude is directly opposite that of Germany. the president declared, and he praised the address of Count. Czernln. but made it plain that Germany's control and domination of Austria prevented Austria being as frank as it must be Once begun the president declared that there was to be no backing and that the whole strength of the United j States is to be devoted to the "eman | cipation of peoples from the threat and attempted mastery of selfish groups of aristocratic rulers;" and nn™ again the president sums up : three tests which Germany and Aus ! tria must meet to secure peace, as i follows: i That each part of the final settle | ment must be based upon essential j justice of that particular case and up | on such adjustment as is likely to bring permanent peace. That the peoples and provinces are not to be bartered from sovereignty | j t »reducing new or perpetuating old ele-1 : ments of discord. Congress listened with the deepest interest and attention to sovereignty as if chattels and that: Everv territorial settlement involv ed in this war must be in the inter est. or for the benefit of the people concerned.

Twin Falls many friends in this city and in Buhl, where she has lived since her mar riage. Besides her devoted husband, R. H. Brannon of Buhl, she leaves her par ents, Mr. and Mrs. Quinby Gillette of this city, three brothers, Vernon Gil lette of Prescott, Arizona, Howard Gillette, a volunteer in the U. S. cav alry, and ten year old Ralph and his twin sister, Anna Louise. Seldom is it given anyone to know such a fine character as Mrs. Bran non, a truly great soul in a frail body—so sweet and patient and brave always; and such a comfort to her own dear ones. She was always cheerful and hopeful, planning for the happiness and welfare of others. To her many friends she was loyal, ten der and true. While we think of her as gone in a sense that is; we miss her sweet per sonality, her bright mind, her sense of humor, her ready sympathy, her companionship—we know that all her good traits still live, and her Influ ence is not gone. People will be better for having known a sweet, brave girl like Lela. Let us think of her as really rest- ing as she expressed it last Sunday while sitting up to watch her brother and sister get ready for Sunday school. "I feel like I am really rest- ing now, Mamma."
