Officers LaPrade and Gardner got
mixed up with a bunch of drunken
Mexicans, at a dance hall on the south
side side, and when the noise of .bat
tle had ceased both officers had been
winger, and at least two Mexican had
been shot. The trouble started when
Officer LaPrade attempted to arrest
a Mexican, and immediately three
other Mexicans interfered, and started
to assault the officer. Other Mexicans
assaulted Officer Gardner, and took
away his gun, and one commenced
shootincr at LaPrade. who had been
'knocked down by his assailants.
'LaPrade finally got on his feet and
turned loose his artillery, shooting one
Mexican twice, once in the leg and
another in the hand, and got another
in the foot. Two shots were fired at
LaPrade, one inflicting a slight flesh
wound in the shoulder, and Gardner
got a bullet through his arm close to
the shoulder, which seemed of such a
serious nature that he was removed to
the hospital at Albuquerque. -Wins-low

Judge Lockwood ordered the matter
be submitted on briefs, and will with

the numerous authorities cited by both
sides. It is expected it will be at
least three weeks before the court will
rule on the demurrer, and the out

YOU WON'T CARE?
BUY A LIBERTY
(By Ellis Parker Butler, Member of
Author's Committee, American
If the Germans win thiswar and
come to America to punish us, you
won't care. You may care a little at
first. It may make your blood boil
to see some shaved-head hog-herder
in the kaiser's uniform strike your
wife across the face with the flat of
his hand, or to hear the shrieks of
your daughters as one of the kaiser's
grinning under-officers drags her
away, but you won't care long. I'll
tell you why.
You'll be dead.
There was a cabled paragraph in
the newspapers a day or two ago that
reported the Russians as feeling bet
ter inclined toward the Allies. The
reason was that the German troops
were poison-gassing the civil popula
tion of the captured towns. It is an
easy way to get rid of civil popula
tions, and. now that the Germans have
hit upon it, they will probably use it
in all cases where they wish to make
room for German kultur.
Poison-gassing the civilian popula
tion is easier and quicker than snoot
ing it, as was done in Belgium. It is
easier and quicker than "deporting"
it, as was done with the Armenians,
although the German-bossed Turks
found that a satisfactory way to lead
whole cities to death. The Germans
are especially apt to stick to poison
gassing civilians because it is their
own happy thought and the highest
exemplification of their own efficient
In America, where there are great
sections given up to agriculture, it
will probably be necessary for the
Germans to bayonet and shoot many
who are now living on the farms, al
though they may be able to form coun
ty concentration camps and gas all
who are gathered in those camps. In
the cities the work would be easier.
On a given day and at a given hour,
the German troops would put on their
gas masks and thus protected release
great quantities of poison gas. The
civil population would immediately
die. Germany would have a free hand
for colonization, and America would
be thoroughly German from then on.
There would be no one here to inter
fere with the German plans. "New
Germany" would be all German. You
would not care you would be dead.
If you think Germany is not capable
of doing this very thing it is because
you have not thought about Germany
lately. That cable message says Ger
many is doing it in eastern Russia. To
Germany we are more troublesome
and less civilized than eastern Rus
sia. We are too numerous to deport.
The easiest way would be to gas us
m the bulk.
No decent nation does such things,
but Germany is not in the decent na
tion class. Think a minute.
Germany is a murderer. She threw
civilized ways aside and began sink
ing men, women and children in the
bulk long ago. Germany is a pirate,
and is using submarines contrary to
all agreements and pacts. Germany
invented poison gas and used it, when
its use in battle was as forbidden and
uncivilized as its use to kill civilian

populations. We have a great country
over here, and a population that
would be endlessly troublesome to
Germany if she tried to rule us. If
Germany comes to the United StateB
she will wish to kill us off as if we
were rats. Germany wants to make
the world safe for Germany.
I don't know how you feel about it,
but I don't want to be gassed. I don't "
want any poison-gassing nation left
on the face of the earth. I am not
even strong in my friendship for mur
derers and pirates. I don't see, today, .
anything good in Germany, or any
thing decent, or anything deserving
respect. I can't think of anything so
hideous or disgusting that she would
not do if she thought it would profit
her. She is not fighting as a civilized
nation fights; she outlawed and dis
graced herself. She must be whipped,
beaten into the slime she has created,
her rulers punished for their filthy
crimes and then, if the world of de
cent men sees fit, her population may
be put on good behavior for fifty
years. At the end of that time, if
civilization has taken the place of bar
barism now existing in Germany, it
may be possible to admit Germany to
a place in the councils of the nations
once more. Until then, look out for
poison-gas I Beat the Hun into bis
