CHANGING INDUSTRY hairy (J«w and flog Replacing Sheep in Farming Section* of < olorado. One of the most Jrnpre -.-.ive evi dence* of tii«; agricultural develop ment that hua taken place in Colorado in the p« it ten year* I the increase in the nurntar of hog* and dairy cat tle In the atnle in thut period It h*M been demon .trated hy experience that the mod .ucce . ful farmers in this tale, and e peciully in the non-irrigat e#l areii>;, are those who mine plenty of feed crop i and keep dairy cattle and hog. Table and mupa prepared by the State Immigration Department for une in the I Colorado Year Hook show that in the «■ ountjc where agricultural development hna been mod rapid in the pant decade the nuiniier of dairy cuttle and hogs la more than four timea a a great aa it waa in 1912. The total number of dairy cattle a.< unaaed in the atute in 1912 waa fifl, 27.'!, wiiile t |»e n urn tar a e red in 1922 wn 147,119. The nurntar of awlne a. ea ed in 1912 waa 70,261, and in 1922 it hud increuMed to 200,017. In tlie Hinne period the number of alieep nan* ed liml decreaaed from 1,002, IHHI to 802,274. Many eastern < 'olorado countie which reported large numbers ol aheep and alnioat no dairy cattle and liog in 1912 now report few or no alieep and very conaiderable nurn liera of dairy cuttle and swine. Ilaca county may lie given as a fuir example. In lliia county in 1912 there were 40,.»91 sheep ansesaed, 94 duiry rattle and 1(27 swine. In 1922 the uh • e .mi reported for luxation 2,770 aheep, JHi dairy cattle and K,B7>‘! • wine. Elliert count y reported 1.K92 dairy cattle and 104 awlne in 1912 und (J.lfifi dairy rattle ami 7,029 swine in 1922. During the same |ieriod the iiuiiilht of dieep uaaesaed in the ruuii ty ilecrtatHxl fiom .'14,20fi to Hl,hK4. In Kiowa county the number of alieep ua teaaed decreased from 22,127 to fi.fif»f» and tin* iiuiiilht uf swine naaeased in creased from 40 to 1,211. The decrease in the huimlmt of aheep in canlcrii <'olorado countiea in thla fieriml lias lieen due chiefly to the dla appoarance of fm* government runge and large pasture tracts and the cs tablisbmeiit of comparatively small farina hi their place The sheep which were foimerly pastured on the free range have lieen replaced largely by dairy cattle and hogs on farms. At the name time there has lieen an in crease in the tiumlier of beef cuttle produced, the range rattle that form erly were |iastured in thla section of the state having lieen replaced by young st»ick and feeders that are fat tened for market here now instead of being prepared for the eastern feed lots as was the case ten years ago The uumlier of lieef cattle assessed in the state in 1912 was 701, M 2, com pur ed with 1,112.299 in 1922. Plans Being Made for This Summer's Cutuzen's Military Training Camp. Word has lieen received from Ist I lent. J. A Gilruth. Infantry, D. O. L C. M. I' C. Officer of the Bth Corps Aiea. which includes the states of Tex as. Oklahoma. Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico, that elaborate plans are now under way for the continuance of the Government summer camps for young men which proved so popular last summer and the summer before. Nearly three thousand young men received an outing at Government ex pense last year, some at Camp Travia, Texas. Fort Sill. Oklahoma. PL Lo gan. Colorado, and Fort Bliss, Texas. According to present plans, camps are to ta held at Fort Sam Houston. Texas. Fort Sill. Oklahoma. Fort ta gau. i olorado. and Fort Hauchuca. Arizona, this year. The branches of instruction offered may he slightly dif ferent from those of last year, but in the main will be in the same branches, which includes Infantry. Cavalry. Field Artillery. Engineers. Coast Artillery. Signal Corps and Air Service. The courses offered include a basic Red Course, which gives fundamental training but does not instruct in any particular branch of the service: Ad vanced Red Course, which gives basic instruction in branches desired; White Couree. (for which graduates of last Krii Course who were certified i eligible for admission to white course are qualified! fits student to be a non-commissioned officer in the Oriasisail Reserve* ei the Kitkail tiuarvl; and the Blue Course. \for which graduates of last year's white couree who were certifirii »> eligible for admission to Blue Course are qual ifievi if of proper age and possess necessary educational qualifications) which fitx candidate for commission in the Organized Re nerve Corps The age limit* are the name an for last year, 17 to 25 for the Red Cour.se* —lB to 26 for the White Course, and 19 to 27 for the Blue Course. These age limits do not apply to those who attended a Citizens' Military Training Camp in 1921, Veterans of the World War may be accepted up to 85 years of age. Although formal application blank have not lieen receives I, young men of proper qualifications will find it to their advantage to mail request- for applications to the C. M. T. C. Officer, Fort Ham Houston, Texas, at as early a date as possible. Although it will be possible to accommodate more than twenty-five per cent more candidates than were accommodated last year, it is expected that more will apply than can lie admitted. Hy having your re quest for application on file, you will have opportunity to receive applica tion blank early. Loading Down the Auto. Several states have lieen taxing gas oline from one to 2 cents a gallon. A meeting of western states’ gov ernors was recently held in San Fran cisco for the purpose of adopting a uniform system of taxing gusoline 2 cents u gallon in the eleven western states which would raise a fund of $100,000,000 a year. Every time a Ford filled its 10 gallon tank, it would pay 20 cents in tax. The extension of special taxation is a dangerous program for any state to adopt. While it must lie admitted thut this is an easy way of raising money for road construction purposes, it in no way justified the adoption or exten eion of this system of special taxa tion. It would be just as logicul to estab lish n tax of from $1 to $5 on every tire sold in n western state or it would just as well to apply a flat tax on .-uitninohile sales. California sold 200,- 000 cars, approximately, in 1922. A •tax of from $lO to S4O u car according to its price would raise several mil lion dollars. Why not add those taxes also—load the automobile to capacity. No New Taxes Wanted. Western states are sick und tired of legislatures enacting hundreds of new laws, creutiug new fees and of fices and enacting new taxes biennial ly In some of the states where the |H*ople have voted down new tax laws, additional gasoline and motor vehicle taxes, legislators are taking them up. In some states new mining taxes are proposed on an industry that has only within alniut six months got fair l> on the tack track to prosperity. Other states are proposing to tax timber taken from the federal reserves —a socalled removal tax—that would l*e thrown into the federal courts. The lumber industry has not been so long solidly on a prosperous basis ami should ta given a few years to ca»ch up with the after-war slump. There is not a western state thut will not suffer from imposing a state income tax —on top of high property taxes, federal income taxes, licenses, etc. There is no doubt but that the peo ple will take a referendum, if indeed they do not invoke the recall on those who unwarrantrilly impose new taxes on industries.

AMERICA AND EUROPE Idealistic Americans who have been calling upon our government to save Europe from itself ought to analyze phenomena now presented at various points on that continent; the strained relations of Hungary and Roumania, the attack upon Memel, the crisis in Anglo-Turlcish affairs, as well as the conditions in Germany. We ask these well meaning theorists what the United States could do to convince the Hungarians that they ought to resign themselves to the loss of a large territory inhabited by Hun garian*, to *ay nothing of a strategic frontier. We ask them what we could expect to accomplish in persuading the Roumenians to give back this terri tory to Hungary’ for the sake of peace. We ask them if they would have us -end soldiers to help the Lithuanians to take Memel because it is in Lith uanian territory and needed by them i as an outlet to the sea, which Mr. Wil- I son held was the right of every inland people, or to help defend Memel from j them out of respect for the so-called i peace treaty and the league of na tions? The United States has money and economic resources w-hich might be beneficial to all these nations, if they made proper use of them. We are told also that we have moral influence. But the former cannot be made effec tive unless the latter is, and we ask if common sense offers us any en couragement to hope that we can per suade nation* w hich evidently are will ing to endure the miseries of renew ed war in the pursuit of their ends to forego these ends at our behest upon any terms we are able to offer them ? What can we offer the Lithuanians in exchange for Memel, or the Rou manians or the Hungarians in ex change for Transylvania, or the Turks or British for Mosul, if they v’alue their possession so highly that they are willing to fight and die for them? If there is anything obvious in the world it is that the European nations value other things more than peace, the rectification of injustices, as each sees them, the acquisition of territory, etc. Those Americans who think peace in Europe depends upon our interven tion should explain what we can and ought to offer to throw the balance of policy toward peace against the heavy weight of considerations cherished passionately by the warring nations. —Chicago Tribune.
