No doubt many jaßlo Blanco county farmer* would con tribute wheat if they could find any of getting their contributions to Hhe relief committee which is headed »y President Charles A Lory of Colo- Bado Agricultural College. WORLD WAR VETS ARE NOT SEEKING PASSAGE BONUS BILL No little publicity lias lieeu given to the so-called iioiius Dll I', more accur ately known as the Soldiers’ Adjusted Compensation bill which was recently rc|Mirtcd favorably by the senate ttn iiticc committee and on the eve of a vote lieing taken on the same was re referred to tills committee without ac tion. President Harding scut a special message to congress to obtain tills re sult. 'l’he principal objection which tin* ex service men have with reference to the matter is that numerous arguments have ls*en inject*'*! in the controversy, to itefog the main Issue. A lot of stufT Is written apparently by men who have had no military service and who have seemingly not read tlie Idll nor tluv'comtnittec report ii|ioii tlie same. For Instance the hill is frequently J refcrnsl to as ‘Tlie Soldiers’ Ron us.' . The finance committee in its report lias Hie following to say in tills respect; Any discussion of this bill, its pro visions and purpose*. would In' lack ing in fairness nnd justice If it fail ed at the outset to correct a general , misnomer of the bill Itself. This pro posed legislation is generally referred to as the Soldiers’ I’.on us hill. No name could In* applied that would lie more j irrelevant. It is worse than erroneous. It stumps ii|nui a just and (inquestion- j ed national moral obligation the disign- i tlon gratuity. The purpose of this bill in no se.ise seeks to express a national grudtitii'lc by ii money gift to our s>l dlers. It is not so intended by Its sup porters and the veterans of the World jWar would not so accept it. It is |u.«* what Its title rends, n hill to proVldc adjusted compensation for th* voter | tins of the World war. It is not a lionus I Idll. and fairness to country and sol illof alike requires that we should ex clude the word lionus lii referring to It. ‘ln simple, plain English, the pur |N»se of tills idll Is to give to the sol dier who offered his life with his sen vices a eom|N‘iisation that will more nearly approach that of tlie laborer who remained at home, secure from danger, and whose comiicnsation In j creased from 200 to 300 per cent nnd. ! measured hv the amount of lnlmr ac tually -performed, far tieyoud Mies'* figures.' 'Hie fact is. Unit the ex-service men do not want n lionus. They want ad justed pay to approach in n measure a little more nearly that which was ‘paid to the most common Inhorcr who | remained nf home. Not n few orgiini/mtions have seen 111 to commend the president and Ren nie for the action which was taken in the virtual killing of tlie hill so far ns the present session of congress is con cerned. There is no objection to that The fault Is to >n> found In the fii'-r lh.it limit;* such lrg.-uii *:itions have gone on i. ofd agni • .' th- hill appar.-i • wir.i j .M ' .making ant . :*ort to work out some I iii whereoy adjusted comp* hsntion could lie paid. Tlie ex-service men know (f r.ot a few iud'.vidunls and ss.-.ncln lions who ar.* o.idemning tlie incn-* irr-. wi.o remained a* home in pence and mfoty and nehinily enjoyed comfort and luxury at least on a par to those of pre-war days. The government did not liorrow mon ey without pnying a fair rate of inter est. nor did It conscript industry with out adequate remuneration. Tlie fact remains it conscripted men nnd remun erated them as it pleased. Tlie department of Colorado of the American Legion is doing what it can I to see that the press, at least, of this state, is informed of the accurate facts in connection with the legislation in which tlie exservice men arc interested Tlie T/cgion welcomes erltism of a con structive nature, hut it resents very much statements which are published nnd sent broadcast which have no foundation in fact. AUTO HIGHWAYMEN In the early part of this week word ciiine to Meeker that outn highwaymen hud held up n (traveler, near Skull creek. Blue mountain, and taken his auto. On Thursday, the news came i n that the highwaymen had been raptured by the sheriff of Routt county, at Sidney about ten miles southeast of. Steam boat Springs. Tlie thieves gave their names ns Jer ry Tlodgrs. Dewey Shirley and Dewey White, nnd claimed that they wen? (deserters from the United States Army and had traveled from Portland Ore gon. In a rented aiAo. which played out on them at Skull creek, Te„ to fifteen years each in a Feder al prison will probably tench them that stealing autos Is a serious offense. ,r be world Is getting wiser every day. i Most of I? lie foolish ness is now pulled | off at night.

HERBERT GORDON Town Clerk GOOD TIMES COMING The Colorado Rankers association was assembled in annua! convention at Denver this week. A rejNirt of the proceedings says: ‘Optimism was the dominant note in the nineteenth uunftial convention hi the Albany hotel of the Colorado Ranker’s association. It was the basis of the various addresses, and it was the tone of the 250 Individuals attend lug the convention. Out of tlie recent gloom of the street corner con versa tions. enine this optimism, and so far as the hanker is concerned, times not only, are showing licttcr, lint the out bs»k is really bright.’ Kc|N>rts from the East shows all lines of business rounding Into good shape. Money Is circulating more free ly. nnd it is no trouble to get cash for all legitiinnte enterprises. The Herald predicts that ls'fore win tor sets i|, then* will In* sufficient (non cy available with which to purchase slock cattle to cat tin our large liny crop. Hankers and Investors generally realize that cattle are now ns low ns t-hey ar** going to Is*: and. after this season, will In* oii the up grade. Hence eat tie at present prices, are n gilt-edge Investment. Methodist News My Dear Friends:- After a wonder fully refreshing vacation T have taken up my tasks among you for the fourth year. While I am appoint«?*l ns pastor of tin* Methodist Church, my primary task is not to Dinkc Methodists hut Christians. My great aim Is to intro dure you to Jesus Christ ns a friend, and brother, my experience lias taught me that if I got huiiimi beings to see and know Christ as He really is, they will take ear** of tlie matter of church iiiciiil»crKhip. From so many sources, inside nnd outside the church, come words of we I come ns we take up the ramc* of the year. The words make me feel my great responsibility. I find myself praying. ‘O Ginl make mo the innn tin's*' folks think I am.’ I thank God for the Joy of continuing to serve you in sacred tilings and remind you of my growing desire to In* more truly your pastor, nnd friend mid brother then ever liefore.

CONGRESSMAN TAYLOR STILL SERIOUSLY ILL I‘coplc in this community are fre quently asking Tin? Herald for Infor mation us to how Congressman Tuy h»r Is gelling along. The following let ter from Mr High. Mr Taylor’s see rctnry, to Mr Walter Walker, editor of the'Grand Junction Sentinel, will rnligllcii all on tin? serious nature of Mr Taylor’s illness. "lie has now In*cii ill for over three mouths In fact, confined to Ills Inml , that time,- and. while lie is still very weak mid his condition critical, lie lias been holding his own fairly well for the hist two or thr*'*' weeks. He is hot ( recovering or regaining strength as we would Ilk** to see him do: hnk his pli.v- j sleians say that the hot weather Is quite a deterinieut ko Ids recovery and j that as soon ns cool weather comes. . which should'lie within the next week or I wo. lie will recover rapidly—at least they hope so- Ills heart is a little more regular, although it still skips and jumps occasionally, and lie Inis attacks from it at times that leave him very weffk and exhausted. Tlie tcchni- . in I mime of Ids trouble is ‘myocrnriic,* or weakened muscles of the heart. Tin* doctors Insist then* is apparently no organic trouble and that, if lie can pull | through and get these muscles again ( •l lengthened up. there is no reason why lie should not regain his oldtiiuc vigor |„ due time. Rut tlie only possi- ( hie cure Is simply n long period of ah- , solute quiet anil rest ranging anywhere from three mm his to a year. His re- j covcry lias Inn'ii impeded by the ner- ( voiis ami run-down condition of Ids , system at the time lie was taken ill. j "Tin* physicians seem to think Mr •Taylor's nnt*urftll>* g*NMI constitution . will eventually pull him through all j right, although 4t will Ink*' time. His condition has Imcii and still Is critical. | Tin* *l«H'tors have a great many times , had to result to the Injection nf liar- ] colics and stimulants and other ex- | tr« me measures in order to keep hi-* , lii'ii rt going — *'s|N'clnlly in tin* zero hours of the night, from t to 4 when ( the energy and resisting power of the human body is at its.lowest point. "Mt Taylor is out at the Walter Reed hospital, about 4‘, miles out oil the outskirts of Mu* city of Washing ton. Tills Is one of the largest and licst cqiiip|N‘d government hospifcnls in the country, and he lias tin* host ami high est skilled professional service that there is i M the governtneit service, and is receiving every possible care and at tention. Mrs Taylor g«N‘s out every night and sits during the iiiglik with him. returning to the hotel during tin* day for sleep and rest, and she Is .'laiuliiig the strain fairly well so far. They do not allow him to receive visi tors or discuss business, etc., or even' rend : and every precaution is taken to see that lie has comphi'e quiet and rest. "So. ns stall'd above, while Ids con dition Is quite critical and uncertain, yet (lie doctors feel that ho will even tually pull hroiigh : hut limv long it will take they do not even venture n prediction.” “III” BARNARD ABOUT ALL IN The Yauipa river papers of last week | carry the story that “III" Barnard [ has Im'cii tak*'n from Ids ranch, in west- j tern Moffat conjly. to a hospital at Ris-k Springs. Wyoming, in ii ‘lying condition. "Hi" lived in Meeker for a number of years In the yearly days, nnd was known to nil the old settlers of White River valley and held in high osicem _ by all. Later, he went to Routt county t and took a position as foreman for tlie Haley critic outfit. He was a Texan and knew the range rattle industry from A to /. After running the Haley outfit for ninny years he wei.lt into lAisiness for himself in the western end nf what Is now Moffat county where he resided until his removal to l lie hospital. All old timers on White and Yarn pa , rivers will he sorry to hear that this fine old range character is about to make Ids link ‘drive’ nnd Join the . great company of those who have gone) liefore.

DOINGS AT WASHINGTON The Foreign Exemption Clause 1 A feature of the tax bill which lias ) Ins'ii widely discussed in the press is the exemption of persons and corpor ations from taxation 80 |H*r cent of whose Incomes are derived from busi ness done abroad. The manner In 1 which this provision will work out has been clearly forecasted by Repre- I a illative Reck (Rep. Wls.), as fol lows : * 'Another provision of this bill which seems Indefensible to me Is that which 'exempts thc.se peiMins and corpora tions from taxation 80 per cent of jwhise incomes i.r* *: rived from hn«d --iu-s-5 dene in foreign countries. A very 1 plausible reason was offer*'*! for this exemption. It is said that. It was done |(o place our own e'.Mzens on an equal footing with *• I vans of other countries 'ii developing tore'gn trade. Rut he.c Is what will happen. The railroad off! ,'itils ami their ecurlty holders ha •«• taught some of our captains of Inins try ii great lesson. They have lieeu oi gatiizlng subsidiary companies, whoso stock is owned by railroad officials md iallroad security l.n’den*. for the maii nfaciure mid repair of cars and loco motives and lime Icon taking this ela <s of work out of shop* owned by Mhj j stockholders of the railroads nnd plac ing it in Mil's*' subsidiary companies at tour and five Mini's what It cost to ii., ibis work in th*' railroad shops, and hi .Ills- way they have Inn'ii bleeding tie piddle of millions and millions of I dollars. Falling to bleed the public of 'still more millions, they are coming In her** with a hill next week that will I enable them to reach over Into tlie Treasury and take out $500,000,000 more. •Now what will happen under this Idll? Why. the tanners, the mnnufac- I Hirers of farm machinery, the coal Ini rolls, the makers of Imots and shoes, the grain buyers, the Tobacco Trust, laud the millers, and dozens of others will form subsidiary companies to sell giNNls In foreign countries nnd will ! not pay a wilt’s tax on* the millions 'they will probably make. They will pay I nothing for the service Uncle .8«m renders them In affording them the j opiNirtnnlly to make money abroad.’ Smoot vs Barding ; 'Hi*' main |s»lnt of the President’s • letter Is the claim that his administra tion is reducing expensw and that next year he iN'lleves taxation may In? reduced to $3,500,000,000. I Five days before tlie President’s let ter was written. Senator Reed Smoot ( Hep.. Utah), one of tlie recognized An iiiicinl authorities of Mi** Republican : Semite, made il speeeli at tlie Rotary Club in Washington, reported In part hi tln- public pn'ss as follows: j ‘Senator Smoot told bow lie predict ed in 1018 that tlie expenses of the Gov eminent would never In* less than j $5,000,000,000 and stressed liow the Treasury Department denied this stat*?- ' incut at the time. | "‘I tdl you now.* said the Senator.

PRICE, FIVE CENTS HELP THE NEEDY The tang in tlie air. the coolness of the nights, tlie ii«?4hl of fires and wann er clothing all conspire t prove that fall is with us and that winter Is on tin* way.

It may lie (that there are those who want a continu ance of the war and who profit, by klic war. There ar*'. no doubt, those 111 Dublin Castle who enjoy tlie guerrilla warfare that Is Is'lng waged.
