The ground -work was laid for the decoration o.' the state. That was accomplished ap 1 ropriately by tho deft hands of the lady members, -Mrs. Munds of the see ate and .Mrs. Rerry of the house. Each introduced two bills, one authorizii'tf state colors and tlie other amhoriz ing the selection of a stale t lower. The colors are to be blue and old gold, tho blue of the cerulean hue of the American flagr. The flower is to lr the Indian ITime, or Scarlet I'aint Ilrusli. Speaking of flags and flowers and such tbinss, representative Goodwin at the opening of the house rose to a question of personal privilege, stat ing that he had. been niisunderstid by a reporter for The Republican the day before, when he rose to explain bis vote on the Rrooks flag bill. -Mr. Goodwin said that he was not opposed to the flag proosed by the speaker, but that he thought that a more ap propriate one would be the flag pre sented to Company A of the Rough Killers when it left for Cuba. In jus tice to Mr. Goodwin and to all con cerned, anil because of their his toric interest, hi remarks are here presented: "I see by The Republican this morn ins: reference to a bill we voted upon in this house yesterday, whiih says: '-Mr. (.loodwin objected to it on tht ground that a more fitting state flap would have been that of the Rough Riders, under whose protecting folds he had curried, mules at Tampa, de fying them to kick him so long as that emblem floated over him.- Now. .Mr. Speaker, I protest against this in the name of the Rough Riders, who followed this flag and lost their lives in Cuba; I protest in the name of every Rough Rider, and I protest in the name of Arizona. In the first place, Mr. Speaker, this flag I had reference to was not the Rough Riders- flag. It was not" presented to the Rough Riders. This flat? was made by the J. W. Owens Woman'? Relief Corps of this state. It was given to fourteen of us on the even ing of the 3rd of May, ISsS, while we were leaving this town for Presoott. That flag we took to Presoott and the governor of this territory pre sented it to the "Arizona column of the Rough Riders. "That flag, Mr. Speaker, belonged to the Arizona column al Rough Riders and not to the Rough Ridels. This flap was taken :c San Antonio and the Rough Riders, not having a regimental flag, this flag was used as tiie regimental flag. AVhen we vent from Kan Antonio, this flag was taken to Tampa, Fla., and still, not having a regimental flag, this flag was used as the Rough Riders- flag. Right troops were taken out to Cuba, nnd, r.ot having a regimental flag, this fiag was taken to Cuba, and this fla was the first flat" landed on the Cuban soil by the American army. This flag was followed in Cuba by many of our boy-?, and many of o'lr boys were killed, and among those boys thi.t were killed were two of the t.ovs thet helped to carry that flag to Present t the night of the r.rd of May. "Now, Mr. Speaker, this flag was the same flag that Rucky O'Neill, in talking with Col. Woods and Col. Roosevelt and other officers, when they asked him why he, an Arizonian, of wealth and political distinction, would join and go to Cuba and risk his life for an alien people, he said: 'Who would not risk his life for an other star in his flag? "Mr. Speaker, this flag was brought back to the United States with the Rough Riders. This flag, when the Rough Riders disbanded, the Arizona column of the Rough Riders asked for their flag, and I want to sav Iitp that the Arizona column was nit the only eoltimn of Rough RidT.i that had a flag the New Mexico column ban th if flag, Oklahoma and Indian Territory had their flag, and, Mr, (Continued! on Page Four) Sys Austria Should Aid In Insuring Italy 's Neutrality fASKOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH LONDON, Feb. I'O. The Frank furter Zcitung. in a leading article today suggests that Austria should make territorial concessions to Italy to insure the hitter's neutrality, ac cording to tin Amsterdam corres pondent to Reuters Telegram com pany.

The l.'nited States probably will mil rr pi i" the I.i'itish and German notes lesai'diiig tile use of American flag on foreign vessels, ami dangers to neutral vessels in the war zone about tlie Rritish.

The position of the I'nited states is based on neutrals' right to demand certain treatniiiu of its ships and conimerie. :egardless of the respect ive actions of belligerents. Further correspondence with belligerents is opposed on the giv the American government ought to be drawn into n discussion of the j u nd not j the I charges Great Rriiain and Germany have made against each other. The documents will be examined closely to determine if there is any tlyng which if not answered might be cinstiued as an admission. Ar guments of both the liritish and German notes charging violations of the rules of international law, and wai-t'are are ol no concern to the I'nited Stetes, officials say. To breek down the doctrine of interna tional la,v between the belligerents would not affect the status of those rules between the I'nited States and Germany and Great Pritain with whom we are at peace. There probably will be a reply to the Rritish answer to the American previous note regarding contraband to avoid seeming acquiescence with (ertain British contentions. The ;:tate department has received few complaints of detention, ;ind seizure, and it is believed the note had the desired effect. The note Great P.rit ain sent concerning the Wilhelmina bound for Germany with a cargo of foodstuffs, which was seized and taken to the nrize court, will not be 'answered until after the decision of the prize court.

The Austrian government has issued a peremptory dei-ree that land owners immediately sow every available plot of ground with spring wheat. This followed an appeal by the Austrian minister of agriculture on Thursday urging that farmers cultivate every bit of ground. Local authorities are empowered to furnish labor to carry out the de cree, and recover the cost from the harvested crop. Failure to comply is punishable by TORPEDOES COAST SHIP Without Xotiee (Jermari Craft Makes Appearance and Sends Steamer Cam hank to Bottom With Four of Her Crew ONE IXSTAXCE OF PROMISED BLOCKAT) R In Meantime Battles on Continent Continue With Ever Increasing Intensity. Reports Received at Va riance With Each Other ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH LONDON, Feb. 20. A German sub marine made its appearance in tho Irish Sea this morning and torpedoed without notice the Rritish coasting steamer Cambank of 1990 tons regis ter. Three of the crew were killed and a fourth drowned while the men' were taking to boats. This incident was the only one connected with the German, submarine blockade of the Rritish Isles reported during the day. It came about at the same time the Anglo-French fleets "ere bombarding the Dardanelles forts and while the Russians, according to a telegram from Petrograd, were administering (iefeat to the Germans at Ussowetz, Poland and driving back to the fron tier troops who had attacked that fortress. In the meantime battles on the con tinent continue with ever increasing intensity. The offensive the allies took early in the week hrought about renewed activity all along- the line. and attacks and counter-attacks have become much more numerous. Both the Rritish and French seemingly made considerable progress at the outset of the offensive operations and this made it imperative that the Ger mans deliver counter attacks to re gain the ground lost. In carrying theso out. the Germans have shown the same desperate spirit which charac terized previous operations under sim ilar circumstances. In a long report covering weeks of operations to February 17, a French "eye witness'' claims for the French many minor successes and the repulse of German attacks. The Germans, loo, make similar claims, so that tho public is left to judge as to the out come of the week's flare-up. From the eastern front there was no news except tonight's official dis patch from Petrograd which says tho Germans suffered at Ossowetz and jthe German plans will be entirely up set as defeat at this point would en danger the whole of their line north ward along the East Prussian frontier. In the rest of Poland and in the. Carpathians where severe fighting is still in progrees, there is no change of tlie relative positions of the opposing- armies, while in Bukowina a bat tle is being fought along the Pruth river. Retirements to this position should be of advantage to the Rus sians as it considerably shortens their line and enable reinforcements to reach them imore easily. The Ser bians and Austrians are again facin? each other across the Danube and have in turn been bombarding Sem lin and Belgrade, respectively, and positions near those cities. This may mean the beginning of a new cam paign or perhaps it is an attempt by the Serbians to help relieve the press ure on the Russians. Cetlinje' was again visited by an Austrian aeroplane which dropped bombs, and according to a Montene grin report, killed two women. Ex cept for the loss of life, the sinking or the Cambank is not in itself a se rious matter, but the presence of a German suhmnrine near the rout that Atlantic liners take on their way to and from Liverpool and aolng which many steamers pass daily is hound to cause some uneasiness. It is true this; is not the first time a hostile sub marine has been in these waters, hut the last one gave crews of the three; ships it sank an opportunity to leave: their vessels. The Cambank had ap narentlv slowed down to pick up a. Liverpool pilot when it was observed by the submarine and torpedoed..

The minister of agriculture is quo'. ed as saying in his appeal: "Peace depends more than ever upon work in the fields this spring.
