BOURNE SEKS NO DIFFERENCE
Hon. Jonathan Bourne, chairman
t the republican publicity associa
tion, sees but little difference be
tween the proposed league of na
tions and the bolshevist theory. Mr.
Bourne is well known to many ot
the old residents of this city. Here
H his view of the league and bolshe-
"Both are destructive of inde
pendence, the one of the Individual,
the other of the nation.
. "Both depend on war for the ac
complishment of their objejets.
"Both aim at the creation ot a
"world sovereignty, wfth consequent
destruction ot all national sovereign

control by the Ignorant mass of hu
manity for that of enlightened intel

by giving equal voting privilege to
nations peopled by primitive savage

"Both are ruled by two or three
self-constituted world autocrats
the one by Lenjne and Trotsky, the
other toy Wilson, et al.
"Both are being supported by vast
urns ot money bolahevisra by
monthly contributions from Russia
and elsewhere of $2,0(10,000, accord
ing to the department of justice, and

bined power of international finan

dissemination of tons of inspired lit

teat ot the masses against the levy

ment, and the league of nations be
cause It masquerades as a guarantor
of world peace.
"Both are ardently championed by
the Prussians. They saw in bolshe
vism the weapon for wrecking the
Russian military machine in the war.
They eee in the league of nations a

brains of impractical theorists in
'Both have had ample demon
stration of their utter failure to
accomplish their purposes, and or
the great danger which they hold for
civilisation Bolshevism in the suc
cession of horrible events that have
oocurred in Russia, and the league
of nations in the complete failure or
the Holy Alliance of a century ago.
Mr. Bourne, like Senator Borah
of Idaho, is decidedly against ANY
league ot nations in any form. He
is a progressive end etand-patter 1n
the extreme sense of the word al
most a' radical. The CourieT mere
ly prints Mr. Bourne's statements
to show the attitude of those who
are against any form of league and
who fear that this country would
lose its sovereignty by signing.
The Courier is in favor of that
kind of a league of nations which
will give the United States an equal
"break with England and one which
will not impair the old Monroe Doc
trine, bought and paid for by the
iblood of our forefathers. The league

IMPROVEMENTS TO BE
E AT THE
The Oregon Caves seems to be
coming better known each year, as
this season ail ready over 300 vis
itors have enjoyed passing through
them, some coming from the east
ern states, some from the southern
and some from the middle west.
The grounds adjacent to the caves
are to be prepared as an ideal camp
ing ground for tourists wishing to
remain. The very best or cold water
is all ready piped on to these
grounds,- also the guide's, present
tent-house is to toe replaced by a
permanent log cabin.
The forestry service is contem
plating building a better trail on the
Holland side, ot about a 5 per cent
grade, and as a point ot interest In
good roads it might be more wide
ly known that Representative Ilaw
ley all ready has taken it up with
the government and found " them
willing to meet the people dollar for
dollar In constructing a Rood road
to the caves. People of Jackson nnd
Josephine counties should certainly
become Interested in the matter.
The guide suggests that instruc
tions as how to reach the caves
should be posted In the tourist snto
park as several have bad to find
their way merely by inquiring from
place tb place. Also Instructions
should be given there as to how the
ladles should dress for the trip
through the caves for it Is Impos
sible for them to make the entire
trip unless dressed in coveralls or
similar attire. x

Have Asked for Hearing
In regard to the newly surveyed
road work at Havoa hill on the
Grant Pass-Crescent City tilghway
and which the state highway com
mission at its last meeting at Salem
dedded to Postpone for the nrenent
because ot the unlooked for high
bids for construction, the county
court has asked for a hearing to see
ir the project cannot be carried out
at once. Judge C. G. Gillette has
written to both the highway com
mission and the federal government
and expects en answer by the first of
next week. The county court Is of
the opinion that the Hayes hill Job
can be done much cheaper than that
asked by recent bidders for the contract.
