This will bring the closing down of the fac tory some time along in the middle of December. There has been some dissatisfaction among the members of the Commercial club as to the closing down of the factory so early. It seems the Sugar Com pany has been closing this factory in the past years and shipping the Bingham County ibeets to Lincoln and Sugar City factories. The Com mercial club has been called on in the past to help Increase the acreage of beets in Bingham County and have promptly responded and it Is hoped the committee in charge will be able to bring enough pressure to bear to compel the grinding of the beets raised in Bingham in the Blackfoot factory.

Stanfield of Oregon, with reference to his resolution introduced authorising the Secretary of State to invite all delegates to the Arms Conference to tour the United States as guests of the government, the invitation also to include foreign correspon dents: "The delegates to the Conference on Limitation of Armaments are coming to the United States on in vitation of the President, and in a sense are to be guests of the gov ernment. All Indications point to a protracted session of the confer ence, and if other assemblages of similar character are to be any guide, there will come a time dur ing the deliberations when the del egates will welcome a breathing spell—an opportunity to get away for a time from, the scenes of their daily deliberations. "As the government is the offi cial hosts of these delegates it should, within reason, do what it can to make their visit both en joyable and memoralble, and it is not too much to propose that we take advantage of the opportunity to show these distinguished visitors something of the extent of our country, the variety and scope of our resources and possibilities, and afford them an opportunity to meet with our people in all sections, and at the same time permit our people is their respective centers to extend the hand of fellowship and offer something of local entertainment along the route to be traversed. "In all likelihood the conference will recess over the Holiday season and that might prove a convenient time for the delegates to make a tour. However, the time can read ily be arranged after the conference assembles. "Congress has already made pro vision for the entertainment of these delegates; it is but fitting that part of the entertainmen fund already provided be spent as pro posed in my resolution. "And not only should the dele gates, but the visiting newspaper correspondents, be included in the Invitation of the Secretary of State. The opportunity for the dissemina tion throughout the world of first hand Information about the United Stteg Is now presented; the writers coming from abroad are me nof rep utation in their own lands; some have world-wide reputations. These writers, gathering their own infor mation enroute, can carry back to their home papers Information about the United States that otherwise will not reach the readers of the great newspapers of the old World and of the Orient. "We don't want the delegates to go home with the impression that the United States comprises the Nation al Capital, the ports of entry, and merely the limited territory through which they travel enroute to Washington. We have a coun try of which we are proud; we now have an unprecedented opportunity to show it to the most distinguished gathering of world-renowned men we have ever had the opportunity to entertain. And, judging from sen timent which prevails in my state, I know the people throughout the land would welcome most heartily such an opportunity to entertain the delegates and correspondents attending the Arms Conference. Let our people meet the delegates; let them in their respective communi ties, discuss the question of Arma ment with the delegates; let us in ject this local color and local sen timent into the conference."
