Among the members of the guard, I
found many of the state's most promi prominent
nent prominent and patriotic young men and
there is no doubt but what we have in in-eluded
eluded in-eluded in the guard, the highest type
of the state's citizenship.
T The encampment-was a great suc success,

' and I want to take this opportunity to
- express my appreciation of them,
their lovalty, and their patriotic re

state's highest interests.
As chief executive, it is comforting
to know that the state has such a
force which would readily respond
should domestic trouble ensue and

duty should the interests of their
country be seriously threatened. My

the Times as pointing out that the
victory notes are placed in the- status
today of really being short-term obli

at presetn prices they will net about
per cent interest.
"In view of the fact that the treas

Times, "ior only $259,471,000 of the
5 xh per cent ; one-year certificates,
leaving a heavy" unsatisfied demand,
it may not be amiss to call attention
of disarjoointed bidders for treasury
certificates and other invetsors to the
3tatus of victory notes, which are
really sfibrt term obligations of the
government. - ; '
, 'The total issue of these notes has
been reduced from $4,500,000,000 to
$3,856,291,150 as of July 31, a reduc reduction
tion reduction of, 643,708,850. The reduction
in the month of July was $57,642,200,
and it is, regarded as certain that be before

have-been so far reduced that the
government will have no trouble in

will be payable in twenty-one months
