: Advice to Pacifists
THOSE pacifists who cannot understand why the world
doesn't throw away its Battling- guns and sink its battle
ships and torpedo boats learned a -sreat deal when they lis
tened to anddress by President Coleman of Reed college
here Wednesday night. The confirmed pacifist thinks the
diplomats are the evil cwiiuses of the world because they
ifio not come to swift accord at the Geneva disarmament con
ference,, and ease the nations ol the intolerable burdens of
avies and armies. Dr. Coleman made it clear to them why
the problem not simple, and

i The determination of nations to guarantee their own
security in turn arouses fears of other countries. Thus Dr.
Coleman cited Japan and Bussia. Japan to protect her sup

rhoved thousands of soldiers
army planes-at Vladivostok. The diversion of supplies, par
ticularly food and grain for army provision, was one cause
. why in many villages Russian
or starved. Japan too is fearful of the United States, so pro
poses to spend half a billion dollars on her fleet in five years ;
and the United States is moving to spend a quarter billion
dollars in three years on its navy. As Dr. Coleman said: "The
nations are obtaining progressively less security by the means
they are taking," ;
Again he cited Germany and Poland, where the Poles
lave 800 planes able to bomb Berlin -in an hour. France,
. whose watchword is, "It must not happen again", professes
readiness to disarm if she be guaranteed "security". Lacking
hat France builds planes and maintains armies and con
structs border fortresses such as the world has never seen
before. And Germany, renascent under Hitler, demands right
to arm. -
In addition to all these threats to world peace, there is
the sinister activity of the agents of munition works who
acknowledge no loyalty where an order for guns is concerned.
The speaker quoted an Argentinian who said they would have
peace in South America were it not for the drummers who
bribed leaders to buy arms. And in the last war French sol
diers; were shot down by guns of French manufacture in
the hands of Bulgarians, and not yet paid for.
It is these national instabilities plus the private greed of
arms-makers. which form the barriers to success at. Geneva.
The conference is not a prayer meeting but a trading post,
in which each nation is concerned first with its own "secur
ity" and secondarily with concessions to ease the burden of
arms and the threat of wars.

(Continuing from yesterday:)
Evidences of the new and large
development ot the mining Indus
try in the Baker district are wit
nessed in the facts recorded be
low: The Cornucopia group, one of
the largest producers in the old
days, 75 miles northeast ot Ba
ker, has been inactive for years,
for various reasons. Work is ac
tive again in these mining prop
erties, with 60 men busy in night
and day forces. These properties
yield high grade concentrates.
The'Regal (Mormon basin)
property, south and east of Ba
ker, is having Installed a SB-ton
plant, with 20 men busy, and 60,
or more will find steady employ
ment when it shall hare reached
the point of full development.
At the Vindicator mine, 27
miles northeast of Baker, a Stranb
milling plant is being Installed,
working a dozen men. This is a
free gold property.
In the Bull Run (Unity) mine,
northeast of Baker, a 60-ton tube
mill has been Installed, and the
property Is in partial develop
ment, The Record mine in the seme
district has a force of 10 men in
stalling a 100-ton mill, to use me
dium grade ore. t '
The Independence Cougar prop
erty near Granite, IS miles west
of Baker, has ,a force of 10 men
doing development work.
The- Rabbit mine, free gold
property, has IS men at work.

No account Is taken in the fore

of them, mostly with one man out

some ot them getting enough to
constitute good or even munifi
cent pay for their endeavors.
These men are found In almost
every creek bed in the Baker dis

or a season.
"There Is gold In them thar
hills," according to the ancient
prospectors' gag, throughout all
that vast section, and there can
bo no certain prediction of what
the future may bring forth aa the
result of the resurgence of ths
gold hunting urge that has been
brought about by the depression
in all or most other callings. It is
an arge as old as what men, call
civilisation. "Gold is where you
find, it," and where it has been
found ia such quantities in past
days, there will the lure last, and
this prediction appUes with espe
cial force In the Baker district and
its surrounding sections.
'Many Immigrants of the cover
ed wagon days wrote la their
diaries of the beautiful Powder
river valley, in which is Baker.
The name was perhaps first re
corded by Peter Skene. Ogden in
his ournalsin the twenties.
Dr. Wm. McKay, sen ot Capt.
Tom McKay, and grandson of
Alexander McKay, said the name
came from the character ot tbe
soft along the river, thus, "polal
lie lllahe," powdered or sandy soil
'(Chinook jargon.) McArthur in
his book on Oregon names says
the name- was perhaps first ap
plied by Donald McKenzle.
The first white people on the
site of Baker were no doubt the
Astorians, in 1811. Lew is. and
Clark showed Powder river on
their map as the Port-pel-lab
The Powder river valley when
the first white people saw it was
rich, with native grasses suitable
for gracing or making hay. This
was a welcome sight, considering
the needs ot their emaciated
oxen. Buffalo herds roamed at
