The president advises us to keep
the treaty out ot politics, yet he says,
in giving 'a republican the credit tor
proposing such a league: "Were I a
republican, I would eay, 'I am a re
publican, therefore I am for the
league ot nations.' " What! right
after advising us to keep it out of
If the covenants of the league ot
nations and the treaty with Ger
many had been, drawn up in two sep
arate instruments, the treaty could
iave been immediately ratified and
the people could have been given
ample time to agree to the league.
It the treaty, as it stands, is not rat
. Ified, who is to blame? '
A Spokane man wants to know

of shown that they were at least as
much Interested in having the Caves
developed, as the government. If
might have been a sort of stimula
tion to these men when they made
their report at least " they could
have reported that the people here
wanted this road built. As stated
above, the people are not being cen
sured they simply overlooked a bet.
One ot the things that has been
developed in this county In the past
few years is agriculture, stock rais
ing and dairying, and it is doubtful
if people of Grants Pass really re
alize how great that development has
been. The fanners are coming Into
their own and they are taking an in
terest in things In general, and the
developmet of things in their local
ity in particular, and, farmers south
ot Grants Pass are now boosting for
the development of the Caves, and
the business men of Grants Pass may
not be surprised to find the farmers
taking the lead and. coming in and
asking them to ass It them in the
work of having the Caves developed
and roads built to them. The far
mer is probably a little closer to na
ture than the people' in town and
they love the things that -nature
builds. No human being ever built
theatres as beautiful as nature has
and the Caves is one of her most
beautiful pieces of architecture and

presume that there was a road to

side, it Is a safe bet that all tour

would come to Grants Pass and make
the side trip to the Caves. It at
