SM.. r >o A V > Al< Decision'of the capital issues committee of the federal reserve board that Thurston county may proceed now with the expenditure of two hun dred thousand dollars out of the six hundred thousand-dollar issue to be voted on next Tuesday, if it is then authorized, removes '.he chief argu ment that has been raised against the plan, settles th< patriotic issue and places the stamp of government approval on the work the county proposes to undertake. The advocates of the plan can therefore go ahead with the knowledge that they are not only acting in full accord with the desires of the federal government but have the government's approval of their con tention that completion of the pavement of the Pacific highway to Camp Lewis and construction of a new Westside bridge are of immediate neces sity. As for the remaining four hundred thousand dollars of the issue, the commissioners have adopted a resolution and placed it on record with the federal reserve board, that they will not undertake any new projects with out the specific approval of the board in each instance, so long as the war lasts. This is both a promise to keep faith with the board and a declara tion to local people that as the first two projects are completed, the others will be taken up. The two hundred thousand dollar portion of the total issue now approved covers all of the work contemplated this year and next, for the bond plan proposes the adoption of a six-year road-building policy and the means of financing it. The idea, of course, is to carry out a certain por tion of it each year and in such a manner that permanent results will be obtained. Inasmuch as the county has spent on its roads more than seven hundred and thirty-seven thousand dollars in the past six years and isn't any better off now than it was six years ago except for the less than five miles of paving east of the city, the reasonableness and the business value of the bond plan become apparent. If there isn't any other argument in favor of the plan, that ought to insure its adoption. A considerable array of facts and figures concerning the bond ittue appear elsewhere in this paper. You should avail yourself of this infor mation so you can decide how to vote next Tuesday. And you ought to supplement it by attending some one of the meetings that are being held in as many different districts of the county as possible before the election, so that you will be fully advised regarding the plan and so able to vote intelligently. ' And, whatever you think about it, don't neglect to vote. One who subscribes for a Liberty Bond and gets credit for being a patriot is not acting patriotically If he immediately sells that bond unless he imperatively needs the money, Secretary of the Treasury *McAdoo stated the other day, pointing out that it is not the mere subscription that helps the government, but the actual loan. Shifting the bond to someone else, therefore, does not help. The secretary expressly adds, of course, that the government does not seek to prevent or interfere with legitimate trading, in good faith, in Liberty Bonds, but he emphasises the fact that one of the great objects of the government is tq have these bonds held as permanent investments by th people generally and not by a few, and paid for out of savings, pro viding funds for the government while at the same time conserving labor and material*. s There are the soundest reasons for holding Liberty Bonds. Their quotations under par on the New York stock exchange mean a loss only to those who sell. The financial history of the United States shows that in tlmea of peace all of its bonds have gone above par, some as high as 139. The tremendous growth of our resources and our trade, our domestic trade alone having increased from thirty billion to sixty-four billion dollars In the last four years, warrants the belief that our government bonds are the soundest Investments in the world and will command a handsome premium in the market with the restoration of peace conditions. Indicating that this is the opinion in Eastern financial cirSles, the Magatlne of Wall Street reports that in a recent conference of six stock market experts it was unanimously agreed that upon the declaration of peace. Liberty Bonds will almost immediately begin to climb until they approach a three per cent basis. That means that the first issue of 3 V 4's would sell at from 106 to 110 and the 4's at 117 or thereabouts. So, even If the profit you can make on them would be your only in centive, the thing for you to do Is to hold your Liberty Bonds. PROGRESS TOWARDS STABILITY. Statements from authoritative sources that the leaders and officials of union labor throughout the country are urging the rank and file of their membership to abandon the strike weapon and rely upon conciliation for the settlement of labor disputes, and the insistence of the federal govern ment that employers generally recognize and adopt the principle of col rtive bargaining, are two factors which are making for industrial peace war time, factors which, if honestly adopted by all concerned, we may confidently expect to overcome the unrest of the past year. ( Essentially, those factors are made up of clear understanding; under standing by the men that the government will see that conciliation is fairly applied; understanding by the employers that, so long anyhow as the war continues, their employes are not individuals to be dealt with each man by himself, with the advantage all on the employer's side, but that they are members of a group whose Interests are largely Identical and whose welfare depends upon co-operation among them. , It Is not at all unlikely that the adoption of these two principles now will mean their continued application after the war's end. Conciliation of labor disputes under government direction and collective bargaining as applied wages, hours and working conditions are, we think, to be the keystones of the industrial policy of the future. The work of the Red Cross auxiliaries of this county, judging by the, reports submitted by several of them, is a revelation to anyone who may harbor the delusion that the people are not backing up this war. Think how much these women have been accomplishing, on top of all the other things they have to do, things which before the war seemed so essential! How many of us men are doing as much, putting as much real work, real sacrifice, into what we do do? The casualty lists are coming pretty regularly from over there and their length grows daily. The coming months will bring the Great War closer to us American people than any time since it started nearly four years ago. Then will we begin to get an idea of what the French, the English and the Italian people, yes the poor Russians, have been going through. k When things come to such a pas? that even county commissioners of the same political faith find it necessary to have the departmental names printed on the side of the county automobiles and to instruct the heads of these department that the cars "must he used exclusively for county pur poses," there must have been some truth in the remarks made during the campaign a year or so ego.
