With the opening ot the copper
mines at Butte, Montana, ihe promise!
is made that the porphyry mines will
resume operations- This forecasts re- I
sumption of work at the plan: of the

I CITY BONDS AND
H Members of congress and represen-
H .Mve, of public utilities and Indus
H trial corporations are disturbed over
H the fact that state and municipal
H bonds arc tax fTce and they have pro-
H posed a constitutional amendment pro-
H hiblting the further Issuance of tax-
H exempt securities.
H Before the house committee on ways
H and means, considering the subject.
H Secretary' Mellon and P. H. Gadsden,
n representative of the American Gas
H association, the National Electric as-
Hj soclatlon, and the American Raflway
H dissociation, presented arguments In fa
H' vor of the constitutional amendment.

H of municipal securities has encour-
H aged extravagance by municipalities
H Mr. Gadsden said that the members
H it the American Gae association, the
EVERETT TRUE BY CONDC
N tional F.lectrie association and the
American Railway association require
many hundreds of millions annually
for extensions and improvements. He
said that before the war public utili
ties were able to borrow money on!
bond Issues at a rate of Interest aver
j aging one and one-fourth per cent
more than the average of municipal
securities, but now that large investors
will buy tax-exempt Issues, paying 5 :
per cent Interest in preference to se- j
curlties of public utilities paying S
per cent. The average rate now. he
said is 7.
The statement of Mr. Gadsden Is
true, but he fails to tell the whole
story When there Is a heavy slump

Freight rates on gasoline from the
mldcontluent oil fields, und from Call
fornla and Wyoming to Ogden have
been declared too high and ordered re

This reductiou should cause lower

Instead of paying ?1.26 per hundred
pounds on gasoline from Kansas and
Oklahoma, the rate will be $1 and from
California the rate will be reduced
from $1 05 to 75 cents
As soon as the new order is in oper
