The American legion post at Kingman, he said, is favorable, and the business men of that town are interested. Inquiry was made about the character of the oath administered to members of the organ ization and information is desired as to who will be in control of it, the lat ter inquiry relating perhaps to the federalization of the guard. Mohave county has never had a com pany of the national guard and until now there has never been any interest evinced concerning it. It is supposed that the interest now manifested has nificent sum of one-half of one cent per day! It is clear from these figures that these bonds constitute bot a very slight, in most cases almost negligible, taxation. And the idea of -what the bonds will cost disappears completely from view when one takes into consid eration what they will save!
