WHEREAS: On Memorial Day,

Grants Pass many of the good cit-
uns of Grants Pass, thoughtlessly
glected to attend the Memorial
erclses on that date, and listen to
e patriotic address of Hon. Frank
Branrwell, wherein he paid a
owing tribute to the memory of the
tion's, and those iwho paid the su-
eme sacrifice during the Civil
ar that the Union foe preserved.
When it Is recalled that during
e Civil war there were two and a
if million men in the Union army,
id only a little over half of these
en ever returned to their homes
id families surely we of this gen--ation
are thoughtless in neglecting
pay due respect to their memory
Were It not for these patriotic
en of 1861-65 who fought the bat
es for the Union for four years of
wful fighting, when the nation's
fe was in the balance there would
no nation today.
To every patriotic, 100 per cent.
-merican Memorial Day should be
acred. As an example in faith' and
atriotlsm to the present generation
Ms sacred day should be observed
a the spirit of General Logan's
tentorial Day order of Ofay 6th,
868, wherein he asked as a respect
o the memory of the Union defend
rs that their graves toe strewn -with
lowers, or otherwise decorating
; May 80th, Is 'now a legal holiday
n about 40 states of the Union. Why
Should good, loyal citizens permit
his sacred day to be commercialized
if the "dollar chasers?" Why
hould many good citizens of Grants
?ass and vicinity thoughtlessly use
his day for plcknlcklng, tall playing
ind vaudeville, shows? Not Ibut these
musements are proper In time and

"There Is no desire anywhere to

many one moment .beyond the time
necessary to understand it, but we
must have it before us in the official
form. As to the league of nations,
the American people must know just
what they re to be asked to agree
to. By what league they are invited
to take the gravest step ever taken
by the United States, and no organ

what the league Involves and what
it means to the United States and to
the future peace of the world."

Just before noon today the auto
mobile was found standing beside
the Baptist church, the last drop of
gasoline gone. The car had been
run about 125 or 160 miles, and
there was evidence that a party of
joy-riders had been having the time
of their lives with it.
This afternoon a man by the name
of Riley Cox, who had been In the
city for about a week, was arrested
here by Sheriff George Lewis and
Deputy Sheriff Lister, accussed of

Loss of Equipment Fails to Kill
the Fighting Spirit of
The fighting spirit that made the
American army Irresistible Is Illustrat
ed In the case of Private Michael J.
Feeney of Company O, One Hundred
and Fourteenth Infantry regiment.
Twenty-ninth division, who, with bis
"buddy," named Brady, put a German
squad to flight by burling stones at
them. The incident Is related In a
letter received In New York from
First Lieut T. J. B. Lang, Feeney's
commanding officer, who vouches for
Its authenticity. Lieutenant Lang
volunteered from Jersey City, while
Feeney's home Is In Bayenne, N. J.
The Twenty-ninth division was In
hesvy fighting In a wooded district In
or near the St. Mlhlel sector.
"Feeney and his running mate,
Brady, were occupying the same bunk
bole in the woods," writes Lieutenant
Lang. "There wss just some tangled
underbrush .between them and the
lines of Boches close la front. Dur
ing the early morning some Boches
who evidently bad come op during
the night get close enough to . burl
their band grenades Into our lines.
We were not Id trenches. Ws bad
gone far, far beyond them.
"One Hun burled grenade, quite
accurately and It landed on the edge
of -the' hole which was the "bunting
lodge of Feeney end Brady. ' Feeney
saw the grenade coming and jumping
himself, ' he - hauled his ' comrade,
Brady, afttr him Into the next hole
less than -a foot and bslf te the
right. Of course he didn't have time
to ssve his equipment.
"The grenade exploded with a ter
rible noise. It shattered the stock
of Feeney's rifle, making It useless,
but Feeney wssn't long Id deciding
that the 'Dootchmen' were a dirty lot
and needed a beating. He bad no gun
and no grenades so, with a curse at
the kaiser and his servants, he stood
up In plain view of tbe enemy and
threw rocks and stones at the Huns
a few yards away.
"They evidently didn't feel safe fac
ing Feeney and his mate, Brady, and,
thinking tbey were due for a shower
of grenades, beat s mighty hasty re
treat for their own territory."
