West Needs Such Men
That the ability and worth of the members of Wyoming’s con
gressional delegation are recognized outside their own state is evi
dent from the Billings Gazette of recent date:
Though Wyoming is one of the smallest states in the Union ir
point of population, in point of influence in the conduct of nationa'
affairs and the proceedings of the national congress it is one of the
most important. This is due to the high character and ability
of the three members of the national legislative body, who reside
in Montana’s neighboring state—Senators Clark and Warren and
In the proceedings of both houses, even now with a Democra
tic majority, their influence is strongly felt. If by the turn of
fortune’s wheel the next election should elect a Republican senate
and a Republican house, as it is almost certain to do, the influence
of \\ yoming will be even greater. Wyoming has three men
representing the state at Washington, who in ability and influence
are second to the representatives of no other state.
This year Senator Clark and Congressman Monde!’ are candi
dates for re-election. The people of Wyoming will do well to
look into their records and their standing, for an investigation
will convince the most doubting that Wyoming will make a serious
mistake unless she returns both of them. Hapoilv reports
from our sister state to the south are to the effect that they are
both almost certain of re-election.
Not only Wyoming but the west as a whole needs such men
as Clark, Warren and Mondeli at Washington.

The Rock Springs Miner says that the motor truck plays an
important part in the development of the ranch and mining in
dustries by bringing their products to the town and railroad.
People that live out fifty miles from town will come within ten as
soon as Wyoming has the transportation facilities she deserves.
Using public funds in the distribution of department literature
for the government to boost the political game is a waste and would
help in reducing the cost of paper if eliminated.
August 2nd will be the last day that nomination papers may be
hied for county officers.
Keep right on telling every tourist you meet that Codv is the
best town on earth and in time they will make you believe it vour
self. / 3 ■ i i

Someone has said that patriotism should begin at the cradle
and end at the grave. The same is true of interest in commu
nity development, but with too many people it begins at the pocket
book and like a circle ends at the same p’ace.
There’s a lot of good horse sense in this man’s town but Chief
Arnold would never think of putting it in the pound if he caught
it galloping around at a livelier gait.
who buys and reads his home paper
demonstrates his patriotism and his in
telligence by the act.
The merchant who buys his printing
from his home paper gives a practical
demonstration of his belief in the policy
| of trading at home.
This town is made up cf two classes of
people—those who DO and those who
DON'T. Don't be a “don't."

NEW ERA OF GOOD ROADS
The passage of the bill by con
gress appropriating $85,000,000 for
good roads is expected to mark the
beginning of the greatest era of road
building in America. The new law
provides that the federal government j
shall share equally with the separate
states the expense of road building
During the year beginning July 1
1916, the federal government will
spend $5,000,000 for roads, the states
contributing an equal or largei
amount. The next federal appro
priation will be $10,000,000 and ar
additional $5,000,000 appropriation
each year until 1921.
States wishing to avail themselves
of federal aid in road building must
accept the provisions of the law
through their legislatures or govern
ors. Before the work can be act
ually begun they must also have j

ment will pay is SIO,OOO a mile for
road construction. The s.ate puys
half the expense or a greater amount
The maximum of $20,000 a mile, the
office of public roads estimates, will
cover the cost of constructing the
best kind of country roads. For
much traveled highways, where a
• larger investment would be consid
ered profitable, government experts
recommend concrete, brick or b’tum

Experts have predicted that the in
-1 creased road building may result in
I a standardized road, acceptable to the
; federal government. At present, th
. | states will make application for aid
i ! specifying the location, character ami
! cost of the proposed road. Each
lease will be passed on separately
l The fact that states must keep thes -
federal state roads in repair under
