Holmes’ assassination was the climax
of a reign of crime in Borger. mush

Moody to declare martial law there and
force the resignation of the Hutchin

Jones and Hodges already were
charged with the crime. Jones was the
second person and the second officer
to be arrested under the reign of mar- |
tial law. At that time he was charged j
with accepting a bribe. Later he was
returned to Borger from Hobbs, N
Mex., and the murder charge filed
against him. Hodges, manager of a
boiler works, once was prosecuted by j
Holmes in a pipe theft case.
Both men maintained their innocence
tonight. District Attorney Clem Cal
houn. however, expressed confidence
that the indictments would eventually
solve the Holmes mystery.

"We will go to bat with these cases

"More evidence against Jones and

Address by Edward Keating,
Editor of Labor.
In an address before the Washington
Education Union, No. 198, associated
with the Federation of Labor, meeting
at the Y. W. C. A., Eighteenth and
K streets, yesterday, Edward Keating,
editor of Labor, told members that the
opportunity for education through the
public press lies in the co-operation
of editors in publishing their views on
important news items.
Mr. Keating said he believed the
fact-finding side of the newspaper was
the primary purpose of journalism, but
particularly stressed the necessity for
publishing editorial opinion because of
its educational value.
"The press should give more space
to the editorial side of Its work,” he

Urged to Emulate Work of
1 Biologists’ Field Club Here.
F. V. Coville Urges Support
to Oppose Power Develop
ment in River Near D. C.
Plummers Island, in the canyon of
the Potomac River between Washington
and Great Falls, which Is owned and
maintained in its natural state by the
Washington Biologists’ Field Club, was
pictured as an example of what a mu
nicipal wild park should be in an ad
dress by Frederick V. Coville, botanist
in charge of the office of botany of the
Department of Agriculture, in an ad
dress last week in New York before the
presidents of the Garden Clubs of
America. With this he coupled a plea
for support to block power development
at the falls.
Mr. Coville referred to a report of
I the committee on plants and flowers
! presented by Mrs. Fairfax Harrison to j
the first National Conference on Out- j
• door Recreation in this city in 1924, j
urging the establishment of municipal j
parks "in which there is complete pro
tection of the wild vegetation."
"When I consider what a municipal j
wild park should be.” said Mr. Coville,
"my mind always turns to a certain
island in the canyon of the Potomac
River between Washington and Great !
Falls. _ i
Island is Purchased.
"Nearly 30 years ago a group of sci
entific men obtained possession of this
island and afterward purchased It for
the purpose of keeping it forever in the
condition of wild beauty it then pos
"We have succeeded up to the present
time, and we shall continue to succeed
in the future unless the engineers and
the power development men succeed in
their proposal to turn the beautiful
canyon of the Potomac into a mill
pond. In that event our Elysian fields j
will lie drowned in water 70 feet deep. ;
I trust that the members of the Garden
Clubs of America will make up their J
minds that that must not be done, for
it is the Senators and the Representa
tives from your States and your towns '
who will decide the matter.

“It is my opinion that the canyon of

of hard-working Government employes
and as a place of beauty and inspiration I
for the people of the whole country
when they visit the Capital of the Na

the canyon that affords the chief rec
reational usefulness of the area, and j
this w'ould be- submerged and destroyed
by any power development that involves
the damming of the Potomac between
Washington and Great Falls.
“From our experience on our Island
in the Potomac. Plummers Island, are
drawn the following suggestions regard

New Form of Insurance
Protection Sweeping Country
Both Sickness and Accidents Covered at a
Cost of Only $lO a Year
NEWARK, N. J.—A new type of j
insurance policy, covering both sick-1

Casualty Company, with offices at 547 i

This unique policy costs but SIO.OO

I No medical examination is required,
and there are no additional assess

SIO,OOO is paid for stated accidental i

or eyesight, and $25.00 weekly bene
fit for stated accidents or sickness
Doctor’s bills. hospital benefit,
emergency benefit, and other liberal
features to help in time of need

This is a simple and understand
able policy—without complicated or

every word means exactly what it
says. Thousands of men and women
have already taken advantage of this
Inexpensive insurance protection.

No one should neglect protecting
