Merchant of Lubbock report ex-
cellent business. There ia a greater
demand for merchandise. Not only
ia this true of the immediate vicinity
but the aurrounding cities of the
Plains are making greater demands
upon the m.'Thandise centered at
Lubbock showing that the prosper-
ous condition art not alone confin-
ed to the city of Lubbock. Larger
and Hetter stocks of merchandise are
to be found and a visit to the com-
mercial institutions of the city will
convince the most skeptical that just
a good and extensive a line of mer-
chandise is to be found in Lubbock

larger citiea of the state.

To Eocoarage Productioa.
During the war the farmer per-
formed . vital and willing service to
the nation. By materially increasing
the production of his land he supplied
America and the Allies with the in-
craesed amount of food necessary to
keep their immenae armies in the
field. He indispensably "helped to
win the war. But there is now
scarcely less need of increasing the
production in food and the necessar-
ies of life. I ask the Congress to
consider mean of Encouraging ef-
fort along these lines. The import-
ance of doing everything possible to
promote production along economical
lines to imporve marketing and to
make rural life more attractive and
'healthful i. obvious I would urge
approval of the plans already pro-
posed to the Congress by the Secre-
tary of Agriculture to secure the es-
sential fact required for the proper
study of this question throueh the
proposed enlargement of th pro-
gram for farm management sludiei

I would urge also the continuance
of Federal participation in the build

causes of this unrest while various
und complicated are superficial rath-
er than deep seated.
Broadly they arise from or are
connected with the failure on the
part of our Government to arrive
speedily at a just and permanent
peace permitting return to normal
conditions; from the transfusion of
radical theories from seething Euro-
pean centers pending such delay;
from hearties profiteering resulting
in the increase in th cost of living
and lastly from th machination of

VOTES WERE CAST AGAINST THE BOND ISSUE.

Two Hundred Fifty-Two Vote. Were Cart and Only Six of TheM
Were Against the Paving Proposition Lubbock People are
for ProgrexiveneM on All Line.
Last Monday the people of Lub-1
bock went on record almost unani-!
mously that they were in favor of
Lubbock going right along with the
program of improvements in the fu-
ture. The election to determine
whether or not flOO.OOO of paving
bonds be iasued and $10000 for wat-
erworks extension purpose resulted
in almost every voter casting a bal-
lot in favor of each proposition.
The vote wa. a. follow.:
For paving bond. - 248
Against paving bond. - - 6
For Water work. bond. 231
Against Water Work. Bonds ... 16
For Amendment to Charter 227
Against Amend to Charter 15
The amendment to the Charter
was a. follow.:
Resolved that Section 30 of Arti-
cle IX of the Charter adopted at the
election held in thi. city on the 27th
day of December 1917 by the vot-
er thereof be so amended as to
hereafter read as follow.:
Section 30. The Mayor .hall give
an official bond in the .urn of Five
Thousand ($5000.00) Dollar and
each commissioner shall give an of-
ficial bond in the sum of Twenty-five
hundred ($2500.00) dollars and the
person exercising the duties fit City
Tax Collector shall give an official
bond in th um of Ten thousand
($10(00.00) dollar. and the City
Secretary shall give an official bond
in such sum a. the commission may
from time to time prescribe. . All
bonds referred to in this charter
shall be made payable to the City of
Lubbock Texas and shall in each
instance be conditioned for the faith-
ful discharge of the dutie. of such
office or employee"" and '.for the
faithful accounting of all money and
things of value coming into the hand
of such officer or employee. All
such bond shall be procured from
some regularly accredited surety
company authorized to do business
under the laws of the State of Texas
and the premium therefor shall be
paid by the City of Lubbock; provid-i
ed that the commission may require I
months. As it now stands it is lim-
ited in operation to thi? period of the
war and becomes inoperative upon
the formal proclamation of peace. It
is imernt!ve that it should be ex-
tended at once.
The Department of Justic? has
ouilt up extensive machinery for the
purpose of enforcing its provisions;
.ill of which must be abandoned upon
the conclusion of pence unless the
provisions of this act :ue extended
No one who has observed the
march of event in the last year can
fail to note the absolute need of a
definite program to bring about an
improvement in the conditions of la-
bor. There can be no settled conditions
leading to increased production and
a reduction in the cost of living if
labor and capital are to De antago-
nists instead of partners.
Sound thinking and honest desire
to serve the interest of the whole

terests of a class must be applied

The failure of other nation to
consider thi. matter in a vigorous
way haa produced bitterness and
jealousies snd sntsgonisms the food
Th only way to keep men from
agitating against grievances is to re-
move the grievance
An unwillingness even to discuss
the matter produces only dissatisfac-
tion and gives comfort to the ex-
treme elements in our country which
endeavor to stir up disturbances to
embark upon a course of retaliation

It is with this purpose in mind
that I called a conference to meet

world out of which ha emerged a
demand for an immed.ate considera-

Frankly ther can ba no perma-

The result of thi. election will
have much to do with the future
progress and development of Lub-

that the people of Lubbock are al-

of the city and are ready at all time
to back up every proposition that
stand for a greater Lubbock.

tion and "a shrinkage in the crop
yield of spring sown hard wheats by
150000000 bushel and a corres-

ter wheats." He said thi. made it
necessary for "a balanced con.ump-
tion a shifting of part of the de-
mand from one kind to the other."

creased in this country in five month
over 10000000 barrel above la.t

eaten or stored away. Mr. Darne. de-
clared "our large crop of wheat" will
