MEEKER, COLO.. SATURDAY. APRIL 7, 1917. WAR DECLARED By in Almost Uninimous Vote Congress has Empowered the President 10 Declare War Against Germany Telegraphic advices came in yes terday morning announcing that Congress had empowered the Presi dent to declare a state of war as ex isting between this nation and Germany. Credits will be voted and all prap arations njade to prosecute the war to a successful conclusion so far as tlie United Btates is concerned. Congress convened last Monday and Champ Clark was elected speaker. On the western war front the British and French continue to push the Germans hack. No Longer a Snap The old belief that public office is a “private snap” lias been dispelled in the office of Secretary of State J iminie Noland, which is to say that instead of working two or three hours a day and loafing the rest of the time, a ma jority of the employesin his office not only are working full time days, but are working two and three hours every night and on Sundays. This will not continue all of the time but will be the rule for two or three months yet. This extra labor is occasioned because Secretary Noland believes in holding the pay roll down to the last notch. This means a saving to the taxpayers at the expense of ex tra work on the clerks, but inasmuch as the summer mouths are dull, the employes haven't any real complaint to offer. Secretary of State Noland boasts that he has ttie best and fastest corps of stenographers employed in auy of the bureaus or departments in the state house. He keeps six of them go ing steadily and each and every one is an expert. This accounts for ths exceedingly neat work turned out by the secretary of state’s office.— ♦-■ —— -■» - Oakridge park people who visited town during the week, were J. F.

Stand by This Emblem Women in The Navy ] New York, March 31.—“ Are women i more patriotic than men?” During \ the past week two women to every ] man have applied for enlistment in < the LTnited States Marine corps, ac- ] cording to Captain Frank E. Evans, J officer in charge of recruiting here. i “One woman insisted upon being J assigned to duty on a battleship,” j said Captain Evans, “It was difficult i to convince her that women are not , permitted to serve in any capacity on j warships.” ( A recent ruling of Secretary ( Daniels provides for the enlistment j of women to fill clerical positions, ( only in case of war, This lias en- < couraged many patriotic daughters < of America, who prefer machine ( gnus to typewriters, to offer their < Services as actual combatants. ; “Bigots” Under the above heading, the tal- < anted and “all-wool-and-a-yard < wide,” D. P. Saunders, editor of the * Brush, Colorado, Republican, gets j “off” the following, which, to our < mind, is a classic, when it comes to ( covering the subject under consider- [ Btion: < “In last week's issue of the Yuma j Times its editor in a long, drawn out < article takes occasion to roast theed- J itor of the Republican. Wehavenev- j er met the gentleman and we are < handicapped In not knowing his per- < sonal failings,however,as he familiar- j ly calls us “Red” we suppose he must < be well acquainted with us. We have ( written him as follows: | “Brush, Colorado, March IS, 1017. ( “Editor Yuma County Times, Yuma, Colo. ' -Dear Sir—My attention has been < called to the last issue of your paper, ] where, uuder the heading 'Narrow-* j ness, Indeed/ you take occasion to ( find fault with the writer and call J kkn.-a.'fcigot’ and other-oooaplemsot- ' ary things. I take no exception to i your views. I have never had the j pleasure of meeting you and I do not ' think you are able to criticize me i without ever having met or expressed J mutual opinions of each other. “However, as I understand that you < are a minister by profession.and tem porarily in the newspaper business. I ( will give you for your information < tiie definition of a bigot: “‘A person who regards his own faith and ( views In matters of religion as unquestlon- < ably right and belief or opinion differing j from them as unreasonable and wlekod < Hence, a person intolerent of opinions con- < dieting with htsown.asln polities or morals; ; one constantly and blindly devoted to his own church, party, la l lief or opinion.’ “I have always held that every ; man had a right to his own opinions. j A Jew, Catholic, Christian, Moham- ; tnodan, Infidel or Mormon looksalike , to me if he is not a hypocrite. If he j is sincere I take no issue with him. Neither politics nor religion cut any ice with me if a man is a man amongst men and practices what he preaches. I have friends iu every walk in life, Christian, Jew’s, Catholics, Mormons, etc. I have helped to bury the out cast when the good Christian minis ters refused to officiate. I have spent money and time to sober up drunk ards and get them to be respectable citizens aud only later to have them join the local church and find fault because I djdn’t become an active member of the congregation. “Ai you know there is considerable controversy amongst the churches themselves and their members as to the advisability of emotional religion or so called ’♦-religion.’ I have, my own opinion. You have yours. As long as we can disc ism our different ! beliefs and not get ‘bigoted’ all right. But when you launch a campaign or print a roast against a man you have never seen or exchangod opinions with I will leave it to the public to decide who is the biggest ’bigot,’ you or I. ' “An editor, as you have no doubt found out, sometimes gets criticised for what he doesn’t say as well as for what he does say. He is a general mark for criticism, good or bad, the same as the minister. He inay be right, he may be wrong. We cannot please all. I do not try. No man who knows tne will say that I am a hypocrite. lam not a 'bigot' and I trust that the readers of your paper can draw their own conclusions as to the 'bigot* when they read your arti cle and you and I will abide by their judgment. “When you are in Brush drop in and aee me and get acquainted. “Fraternally yours in ‘bigotry,’ “D.
