The cause of this wave- of crime may be laid to many things, such as money ness, and extravagant habits born of tihe war. The easiest way to get mon- i ey, by murder if necessary, is because of the low value of human life, also born of the war. The use of high powered automobiles for the escape of bandits, general unrest, the use of drugs and bootlegging. These are some of the causes, but I believe that "Aw, what ir it does rain a little?

It may be a good plan to form sauads of 10 or 12 men each, and have a captain for each squad. I would suggest, if possible, to have a squad in town in the county, if only a small one of a few men. MONfROE HAS PLAN. Then I could take any work in hand up with 'the captain of a squad and he would set as many of his men to- gether as possible for that occasion. For instance, if happened near Davis or Winters, I would call the captain of that place or he call me, explain the mode of procedure, and he call his men and get together. Likewise here in Wjoodland I could take turn in calling different captains, if it required only a few nwn, and he and his squad could take their turn with me for duty These are only my idras as to the matter of organization which I am going to leave in your bands. I shall await your call for a gonoral meeting of Yolo boys after the holi- days, and shall be glad to deputize all those "who intend to take the oath of office for active duty at any time .called those who mean business and have in mind in giving good, clean and efficient service."
