Any communication receiv ed after that hour will be left over until the following week, at our formt clote Tuetday noon. The pure food commissioners of Minnesota descended upon a shipment of groceries from a Chicago firm which sent supplies direct to the consumer. They found coffee under weight and adulterated, spices badly adulterated and flavorings extracts wrongly label ed and artificial. If the law seeks to protect all people from the effects of their own folly it will ha\e the job cut out for it. Education is a slow, laborious process, and sometimes we are apt to feel as though efforts in this direction were thrown away. Some of the seed may fall on good ground though, so we shall keep on sowing. The present financial trouble is some thing unusual. According to statistics there is more money in the country than there ever has been in the past, the land has produced its banner crop, good times prevail and we see no cause for a financial crisis. The trouble seems to be with the Eastern speculat er; he cannot get money to make good his promises for the reason that the Western producer holds a greater per centage of the country's money than he has ever held before, and he has at present no occasion to send it fast. The great annual rakeoff by the East from the West is to a great extent cut off by the raising of the big mort gage indebtedness of a few years ago which hung gloomily over the Western land. The Eastern life insurance graft that for years took millions from the West has been practically shut off, on account of the recent overhauling of these institutions by the Hughes- Roosevelt muck-rake which exposed to the public the crookedness those institutions. Ten years ago a man could not travel forty rods on a West ern country road without being held up by a long-coated life insurance agent; now you seldem meet him — he is a thing of the past. Those millions that in the past have been transferred annually from West to East to a (Jreat extent, is now held in the West, is sure to cause some trouble, but the country at large is all right. We have the money, the wheat, the corn, and everything else essential to the make-up of a great and prosperous people. We possess those elements in greater degree than any nation on earth and where is the chance for a serious financial crisis. We fail to see it.—Keller Sentinel. The St. John Journal publishes an interesting news item that illustrates the financial independence of the farm ers in Whitman county. It announces that a new bank is to be established at Sunset. The caital stock is placed at $50,000, all of which is owned by the ! farmers of that vicinity. It is expected ' that the bank will be open for bus iness by the first of the new year. In describing the details of the organiza tion the Journal says: "The bank will be owned and controlled by the local wheat kings. Your correspondent is informed that & law firm of Colfax is preparing articles of incorporation, some of which are that a stockholder must be the owner of unincumbered real estate situated in Whitman county worth four times the par value of his stock. Said bank will make loans to local merchants, farmers and on farms, and will buy school bonds, light and water bonds, but under no consideration will it make any loans or investments outside of Whitman county." There is much food for thought in this little piece of information coming from an agricultural community. It shows that the farmers want a place for depositing their funds that will be absolutely safe and in perfect harmony with the development of the country. It is to be a farmers' institution,own ed and operated by farmers and for the benefit of the agricultural classes of Whitman county. These wheat growers, who have made money in tilling the soil, have confidence in the farmers, the country and the crops. They know that agriculture, whether special or diversified, constitutes a safe investment, and can be depended upon in times of prosperity and adver sity. The organization of the bank at Sunset is in line with the spirit of co operation that directs the successful agriculturists of today. It indicates the rapid growth of the thought that every community is responsible for the progress made by its people. It de monstrates that there is more truth than poetry in the old story about one man being his brother's keeper. The wheat kings of the Palouse are able to establish and maintain such a bank as they propose. In doing so they hold up the farmers of that country far above the plane of gamblers in financial paper. They show their faith in nature and her powers of production, and bid the agriculturists oroceed in the work of making a solid, safe and prosperous community of in dividual and collective wealth.—P. I. Tokyo Official Circles Silent (Continued from Page One.) it probably cannot do so. The vast extent of our western coast line gives our fleet as much right on the Pacific as upon the Atlantic, and as much responsibility, while the growth of war power in Japan and China, cou= pled with the fact that we have pos= sessions in Asiatic waters, must, in the ordinary course of things, make it necessary that a powerful navy, under the stars and stripes, be permanently stationed in the Pacific. "Therefore, the administration rea sons, and its successors must inherit the condition, that the ships taken from the Altantic must imperatively be replaced with new vessels. The country may like this prospect, or it may not, but it has committed itself to a policy of which this procedure is the natural outcome. "More battleships, more cruisers, more torpedo boats, more destroyers, more submarines, more men, more powerful armament, stouter armor, a fleet of transports, a fleet of colliers, more naval stations—these are the necessities of the case. And the country might as well look them in the face now, and estimate their cost, not only in treasure, but in national ideals." Ard all this with the Peace Cor.fer ance still fresh in mind. Grand Jury for Benton County. Judge Zent, when holding court at Prosser .Wash., recently expressed himself as desirous of calling a grand jury to investigate some county affairs and other matters to which his atten tion had been recently directed. Some few weeks ago the court issued an order to the prosecuting attorney, in structing him to bring suit to set aside a jugdment obtained by F. H. Gloyd against Benton county for services rendered by him while auditor of Benton county in transcribing the records of the new county, amounting to over $4000. As special prosecutors to assist Attorney Callicote he appointed Robert F.Booth and Elmer E.Todd of Seattle, !to prepare the papers in the case, i The complaint was prepared by the Seattle attorneys and submitted to Mr. Callicote for his signature and to file which the Benton county prosecut or now refuses to do, claiming that the Gloyd transaction was a matter settled by a former board of commis sioners and the former prosecutor, O. C. Anderson, and that the court is powerless to make the order, on account of which he is not required to comply with it. He also claims the ; county has not been injured by paying for what it has by its own order. It , may take a grand jury to settle matters satisfactorily. Death of A. J. farmer. The death of A.J.Farmer is report ed from Missouri, where Mr. Farmer went a few weeks ago on a visit to his old home. Mr. Farmer is well known to Odessa's older residents, having followed the trade of carpenter here until about four years ago, when he moved to a ranch south of Krupp, where he has since resided. Grandpa Farmer, as he was known here, was a kind spoken old gentlemen, who everybody admired and respected, and his death will be sincerely mourned by a large circle of friends. Fred Thiel Mauled. Fred Thiel, the popular young pro prietor of the Odessa Drug store, who left Odessa a couple of weeks ago without informing his friends of his destination, writes to his cousin, Henry Thiel, announcing his marriage to Miss Maud Johnson at Webb City, Mo., on Nov. 19. The bride was formerly a teacher in our public schools and it was here that Mr. Thiel met and won her. They are now on their wedding tour and will return to Odessa about Dec. Ist to make their home in one of Adam Miller's houses on Third street. The Record joins with many other friends in extending congrat ulations and wishes this popular young couplea tranquil journey on the of times stormy sea of matrimony.
