THE MOHAVE COUNTY MINER AND OUR MINERAL WEALTH, PAGE THREE H LOCAL BOARD TO ACT ON ALIENS, V IMMIGRATION The following bulletin was receiv ed this week from the Associated Board of Seattle and King County, a branch of the War Department: At a recent meeting of mem bers of all local boards of Se attle, Washington, a resolution was unamiously adopted to initi ate a nation-wide movement having for its purpose the de portation of all aliens, both declarants and non-declarants, who had claimed exemption from military service on the mere ground of non-citizenship. Many organizations seem to a center all their attention on the . aliens who surrendered their papers. You, as a member of a draft board, can see no differ ence between the alien who has surrendered his first papers and a non-declarant claiming exemp tion both of them are the same i kind of parasite. A man not will v ing to fight certainly would not . make a desirable citizen. If congress is so intent upon de porting only the alen who sur rendered his first papers, then at . least congress should by statute make it impossible for the non declarant alien who claims ex- emption to be naturalized. ' Congress is now considering a hill to restrict immigration. We believe boards should urge congress to prohibit all general , 4 immigration for at least a period i ' of years. - The combined influence of draft boards upon the question of de porting aliens and upon immi gration laws would be tremend ous. We suggest and urge that you immediately write to each congressman and senator from your state. Get every patriotic and fraternal organization to do likewise. The legislatures of ' many states are now meeting; concerted action should be brought to bear to memorialize congress along these same lines.

That there will be no general ex tension of time beyond March 15t, for the filing of returns and for the payment of income and excess profits taxes due on that date, is the de cision of Daniel C. Roper, Commis sioner of Internal Revenue. The an-' nouncement was made today by Col lecter Franklin, immediately follow; ing the approval by the senate and house of the report of the conferees on the new revenue bill. "It is necessary to get the initial tax payments in by March 16th," says Commissioner Roper. "No other course is possible. Some months ago, the treasury issued certificates of indebtedness to an amount ap proximating $800,000,000, maturing March 15th. The first payment of the income and excess profits taxes for 1918 was planned for that date, to meet this huge obligation. The Amencan people have proven that there is no emergency too great to be met and solved by co-operation. This present situation is another em ergency which can be overcome by co-operative effort, The bureau ex tends its every force toward this end, and I am relying upon the people to meet the situation whole-heartedly. The Internal Revenue Bureau must carry out the program prescribed in the new law, which requires all re turns for 1918 to be filed on or be fore March 15th, 1919, and requires the first quarterly payment or the entire payment to be made on or be fore that date. Every taxpayer who can possibly do so is urged to make full payment of his income tax on or before March 15th. The quarterly payment meth od is intended for taxpayers whose financing of Ithe tax )at lone time would tend to upset local financial conditions. The approval of the report of the conferees by the senate and house of representatives brings the new rev enue bill to the point where it may be said to be a law. The internal revenue bureau bureau has been mak ing preparations to collect the taxes which it provides, and is now putting all of its efforts into aiding the tax payers to fulfill the obligations im posed. The bureau has arranged to send an advisory force of several thous ands of deputies and agents to assist taxpayers. These officers will be stationed at convenient points where they may be consulted without charge. Taxpayers should take the initiative and get in touch with these revenue men for any needed advice and as sistance in preparing returns. The forms for the tax returns are being printed and all forms will be in the hands of collectors between February 15th and March 1.

TRANSCONTINENTAL FLIGHT AIRPLANES TO ESTABLISH EEASABIUTY NAVIGATION TheWar Department authorizes the flowing statement from the Di rector of Military Aeronauties: The squadron of airplanes which .completed the first transcontinental flight in New York City, January 7, left Washington February 4 on the return trip to the Pacific Coast. The party is commanded by Maj. Albert D. Smith, and includes Lieu tenants Rober S. Worthington, H. D. McLean, and Albert F. Pyle, pilots, and Maj. James H. McKee, smrgeon; Lieut. John W. Evans, photographer, and Sergts. R. P. Blanton and Wil liam G. Lewis, master electricians. The return flight will be made in the same four training airplanes "which carried the party east. Al though they have already flown 4,tU0 miles under extraordinary severe conditions, three of the four original motors, American built, re main in the ships. The transcontinental flight was made from Rockwell Field, San Diego, to New York City in 55 hours flying time, and it is Major Smith's hope to reduce this time consider ably. It took the squadron thirty five days to complete the first trip. and it is the present plan to spend as few nights as possible en route. On its first trip the squadron prov ed, by a series of short flights, that it was possible to span the continent and, at the same time gather map making material. On the return an effort will be made to utilize the in formation gathered, thereby estab lishing a shorter, quicker, but ab solutely safe aerial route from "THE GREATEST THING IN LIFE" Like the shadow on the earth of a cloud crossing the sun, the creeping barrage went forward. From artillery, miles back, the shells dropped death on the German trenches. Behind the protecting curtain the Yanks advanced, bayonets ready, grenades in hand. Above, a bombing aeroplane dart ed like an angry wasp through the reek of battle. Now you are in the midst of it with an American boy. Now you are back of the German lines where the girl he loves is in peril. The Yanks are coming. But will they reach her in time It's a moment of terrific suspense! For the first time in motion pic tures you are taken into the line back of a creeping barrage. For the first time you charge side by side with the army of Yanks over No Man's Land. It shows you why the Germans had to quit. New York to San Diego, via the At lantic and Gulf coasts. The transcontinental flight was de signed to establish the feasibility of lantic and Pacific Coasts. Major bmith made certain, on the flight east, that the entire squadron, com plete in personnel and equipment, should make the entire journey. His trip demonstrated the fact to a VlVMllltg, UUtb 11 AS, MIC, ttUU kUAb U1B entire country is deeply interested in aeronauties.

J Why Swift & Company Handle Poultry, Eggs, Butter and Cheese Swift & Company went into the pro duce business because they saw a crying need for the kind of service they were equipped to perform. The produce business was in chaos. Collecting, transportation, preparation and distribution was hit or miss, with delay, deterioration and loss on every hand. The farmer was at the mercy of an uncertain, localized market. He had no way of reaching through to the people who needed what he was raising for them. There was no prem ium upon improving his stocks, for grading was lax or lacking. The consumer had to accept produce that, as a rule, had no known respon sible name behind it. He had no way of knowing how long the eggs or the butter he was buying had been lying around in miscellaneous lots in the back room of a country store. Much of the poultry was not properly refrigerated before shipment or properly protected by refrigeration in transit. Swift & Company's initiative brought systeni to this chaos. Their organiza tion, equipment, and experience in handling perishable food products were already adjusted to the task. Their Refrigerator cars, branch houses, cen tral points, far-reaching connections, trained sales force, supplied just what was demanded. Now the farmer has a daily cash market in touch with the nation's needs with better prices. Standardi zation makes better produce more profitable. More consumers are served with better, fresher, finer foodstuffs. Nothing suffers from this save inefficiency, which has no claim upon public support. Swift & Company, U. S.
