W. EL Lindsey, following his return from Stiver City and Teming, issued the following proclamation warning against theactlTitles of profiteers In Liberty bonds: "People of tbe state of New Mexico: Information comes to me that certain traitors and profiteers are undertaking to depreciate temporarily the mar ket value of Liberty bonds, war sav ings certificates and other govern ment securities for the possible dou ble purpose of giving aid and com fort to onr enemies and Inducing loyal citizens who are owners of war promotion securities to part with them in exchange for speculative promotion stocks or bonds. "It is regrettable that the state of rtew Mexico is without statutory authority to regulate and control the issue., sale and barter of speculative promotion stocks and securities a condition that should be remedied at the next coming regular legislative session. "Contemporaneously with the raoid ana large increase in tne value or live stock and other properties at the beginning; of the war. the stock Ram bler and speculator appeared among our people, orrenng the sale or a great variety of speculative stocks and bonds of companies largely organized for the purpose of enabling the organizers and their agents to transfer the legitimately increased wealth of the farmer, stock grower and producer generally, without ade quate, ana sometimes ror no consideration, to the possession of the trade-sharper, speculator and non-producer. "This resource of these conscience less profiteers having about exhausted itself, because of the dissemination of knowledge among our people and other causes, they are now proposing to trade upon the patriotism of those of us who have invested in Liberty bonds and other war promotion securities. All owners of such securities are hereby warned against the opera tions or tnese pro-uerman trade sharpers, cheats and speculators; and prompt report of their identity and field of operation anywhere in the state of New Mexico to this office or to the stat- counr.i of defence is earnest! reuuestca.
