Courtney, superintendent of the state lime plant near Cold Hill, accompanied bf 'Mr. Courtney, left thla morning by automobile on a trip through Douglas'and Iane coun ties In the Interests of the lime out put. The plant has been closed down until about September 30, when deliveries of lime are to be rommenred. As the plant requires a total of 20 men for Its operation, Mr. Courtney says It is Important that there should lie shipped at leaHt one car of limestone each day In or der to reduce overhead expense. County Court May Ketail I.ime Ground limestone may be supplied by the county courts of Oregon to farmers at cost. (Procedure Is ex plained In chapter 118, session laws 1919 as follows: On petition of 60 or more farm owners ot the county the court must order at least one car lot 30 tons from the state plajit at Gold Hill. The IJme -will be stored in a suitable place and sold to farmers for cash IfttifflHont In wiwr all cnata Tha&A costs are $2.60 per ton Incar lots at the iplant, freight charges of $2 per ton to Salem other points in proportion and handling and stor age unless provision Is made to have the car unloaded by the farmers Into their own 'wagons. . If stored the cost to the farmer -will be about $,5 per ton at Salem and other points a like distance from Gold Hill. The advantages of this plan are that farmers can get Uime in less than the minimum car lot from the plant, a.'nd by having It stored can reduce the cost ot hauling home by taking back a load of lime with them whenever they haul a load of farm produce to market. The law mentions the fact that the plant must be kept running full ca pacity In order to produce round limestone at lowest cost. This plan of distribution will thus help keep down the cost and also supply, lime In quantities aulted to the farmer's needs. All orders should be addressed to Dr. A. O. Cordley, seoretary of the I state lime board, Corvadlls, PACIFIC FLEET QUITS PANAMA FO AN Kill "BKWJIvHT KVK.NT IN HIHTOUY OV CAXAI,M 8AVH ;OVKKOK HAKDIXU KlaKNlilp New Mexico Uad 81 x Ih-nodnaughU to Water of the Pacific Panama, Canal Zone, July 28.

ARE ADVOCATED Bf C.E.HUGHES RELIEVKU ADOITIOX OF PEACE COYEXAXT OOIXD BE GUARANTEED INTERPRETATION T0.4CLA0SES Immigration and Imposition of Iu . tiea to Remain Quetttion of Domestic Policy Washington, July 28. That the adoption of the league of peace cove nant by the United State might be guaranteed by the addition of a num ber of reservations to the instrument ot ratification, is the opinion of Charles Evans Hughes, as expressed by him in a letter to the (Honorable Frederick Hale, of the senate body. Mr. Hughes told Senator Hale, of Maine he feared the senate would fail to ratify the peace treaty with the covenant as at present, and he said, "there la plain need for a league of nations." Mr. Hughes believes that four clauses of the covenant need the addition of reserving or interpret ing statements, which would remove the United States from danger in case of ratification, if the statement were attached to the instrument it self. Article I, which provides for the withdrawal of a member; article XV. which deals with phases of the Monroe Doctrine; and article X, which provides for "war against ex ternal aggression." should be furth er qualified before ratification, he say. Aa to the possible reservation themselves Mr. Hughes wrote as fol lows: 'First: That whenever two years notice of withdrawal from the league of nations shall have been given., as provided in article I ot the covenant cease to be a member of the league at the time specified in the notice, notwithstanding any claim, charge or finding of the non-fulfillment of any international obligation or any obligation under said covenants provided, however, that such with drawal shall not release the power trora any debt or liability theretofore incurred.- x Second: That' questions relating to immigration, or the imposition ot duties or imports where such ques-' tions do not a3i9e out of any interna tinal engagement, are questions of domestic .policy, and these and any other questions which according to international law are solely within the domestic jurisdiction are not to un Buuiuiiiea ror me considerations or action ot the league of atlons or of any of Its agencies. Third: That the meaning of ar ticle XXI of the covenant of the leagueof nations is that the United States of America does not relinquish its traditional attitude toward pure ly American questions, and is not re quired by said covenant to submit its policies regal-ding questions which It (Continued on Page 2) 3D E Coblenz, July 28.
