Mrtlr desire peace The last adm n tstration. with in insistence that would not consider anv method of s«* curing the peaceful settlement of in ternational disputes except the League of Nations, went out of power largely because of that fact The people saw la that schema an assurance of furth •r wara rather than a reasonable plan for the discouragement and prevention of wars. The present administration with rare wisdom undertook to secure concrete and definite international agreement* which would result in diminishing tin [Mubabdity of future uaia b> limiting the armament o! those nations whn.-e -ouipetitlve strife could only result in future wars. Accordingly, the Presb • lent called a Conference to meet at Washington to consider the limitation of armament and to make such settle uenta and agreements espec ally with egard to the Pacific and adjoining ’•rrltorv as would determine existing tlaputea and remove causes of future discord. Judged by practical insults the Washington Conference was the great set actual achievement in the cause if peace ever accomplished It se '•iired a treaty agreement by the five «ieat maritime powers for a definite imitation of naval armament It se cured a definite agreement regarding •be uae of submarines and noxious gases la warfare It secured by the four-pact treaty an agreement fixing 'he status, defining the right*, and limiting the building and enlarging of fortifications and naval bases on the Pacific. It secureo a confirmation by nine of the great nations lunediately concerned of the "Open Door” policy, and agreements that will prevent the future exploitation of China.

Therefore. Be it Resolved, that we as voters and taxpayers of the county protest against the issuance of bonds for said purpose on the following grounds, viz.: The burden of taxation that would be further increased does not justify at this time the outlay for such bonds. The fact that very few. if anw hos pital in the valley is self sustaining and that some provision must be made which would entail further hardship upon the taxpaye.s, also is a factor worthy of consideration at this time. However, we do not dispute the truth that the county is badly in need of an adequate hispital but we believe that if this proposition should be defeated at the polls this fall, it will be doubly ljard to secure the approval of the vot ers at a later date when the business conditions of the county shall have be come more stable. We especially hon or the motives of the ex-service men who are so unselfishly backing this proposition, nor do we censure Tn anv way the county commissioners for fol lowing the will of a considerable body of fellow citizens and ordering the proposition submitted to the voters this fall. Nevertheless, in spite of these con cessions, we declare it the unanimous sense of the meeting that it best serves the welfare of the county to defeat this proposed bond issue at this time for the erection and equipping of a me Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co.

Her many La j mar friends sincerely hope the reports will continue most favorable Memorial Hospital. In another column will be found the resolutions passed by a meeting at j Granada on Monday to consider the! proposed hospital bond issue for the county. These are published by re- , quest of the committee appointed by , the meeting, but we believe that the meeting was laboring under consider- j able misapprehension as to the nature of the proposal. It will be at least two years before there will be any levy 1 for the proposed hospital to be paid, and for the first five years the levy will be very slight—a few cents on each thousand dollars of valuation. As for the expense of maintaining the hospital that should be no greater than at present, as we do not believe our people desire any person in the county to be denied the benefits of hospital care when needed, whether they are able to pay for it or not. The City of Lamar has been for several years put ting up an equal amount with the county to make up the deficiency which is caused by the care of the unfortunate. If this hospital turned off these cases as the privately owned institutions do it would pay its own way, but managed in that way it would Im* a poor memorial to our soldier boys who enlisted to save the world from oppression. Next Representative Here. N. Gomer Jones of Two Butte:,, next representative from the Haca-Prowers representative district, was a l-ainar visitor last Friday and spent two days in this county. Mr. Jones is an old time business mun and stockman of Baca county, and is a substantial citi zen and one of experience in public af fairs. He will later make a much more active cunvass of the county. He is one of the best known citizens of his home county and has many friends throughout Prowers county. Baca county has never had a home repre sentative in the legislature and it is only fair play to give them a turn at the job. Mr. Jones will make an able legislator and will go into the body unpledged to any course of action ex cept to do in all cases that arise what he believes to be for the best interest of his district.
