WASHINGTON, D. COn April
20 the senate ratified the long-stand
mg treaty with Colombia, giving that
sountry $25,000,000 for seizure of the
Panama canal zone during the Roose
velt administration in 1904.
President Harding had previously
urged its ratification as a first step to
ward international good will.
The more liberal politicians have
been urging its passage for* many
years, but Republicans in general op
posed it for party reasons and because
it reflected on Roosevelt.
Two reasons probably account for
the present success of the treaty:
1. The Democratic party is knocked
out for the time being at least.
2. Colombia agreed to let an Amer
ican syndicate, in which Secretary of
the Treasury Mellon is prominently in
terested, have large oil concessions if
the treaty was approved.
There is no doubt except among
spellbinders that we acted in a highr
handed manner toward Colombia.
Roosevelt once said in a boasting mo
ment: "I took the Panama canal."
Nor is there any doubt that certain
financiers who knew this seizure was
to be made secured big profits by buy
ing up the shares of the old French
syndicate. It was this group which
prevented consideration of the Pana
ma and Nicaragua routes on their
relative merits as engineering prob
SALES TAX EFFECTS
The sales tax, urged by Wall street
us the best way to raise needed fed
eral revenue, is going to raise a lot of
mischief for general business as well
as 'for the consumers. The plan ad
vanced provides a tax on each turn
over of goods.

ts nine different sales tax levies:
1. Raw cotton to gin.
2. Ginning mill to spinning mill.
3. Spinning mill to mercerizing
4. Mercerizing plant to dyeing
5. Dyeing plant to weaving mill.
6. Weaving mill to finishing mill.
7. Finishing mill to wholesaler.
8. Wholesaler to retailer.
9. Retailer to consumer.
The trust, which handles the mate
rial from raw state to retailer or con
3umer, will have a great advantage in
ihat it will have to pay only one or
two sales taxes.
Mail order houses, which largely
manufacture their own goods, will be
given an advantage over the inde

DISARMAMENT FEELING GROWS
Sentiment for disarmament is grow

Some of bur own senators and rep
resentatives who have been back home
are now talking about the further need
for reducing national expenditures.
There is a strong possibility that
the swing from reactionary poli
tics, now long overdue in America,
will be brought about by this disarma
ment issue. It is something on which
small business can and must break
with the big business politicians.
The old machine in the Minnesota
house and senate refused last week
to memorialize congress on the dis
armament issue. But this very move
may cause a number of them to stay
at home two years hence.
BIG BRITISH STRlftE FIZZLES
Decision of railroad and transport
workers' unionB in England not to go
out on strike with the striking miners,
greatly reduces the possibility of any
great principle being settled at this
Large business everywhere sighed
with the satisfaction- of a great load
taken from its shoulders. The miners
will probably be able to get some con
cessions before they go back to work,
but employers expect such results and
state extreme terms at first so as to
have a basis of^compromise which will
leave them the gainers.
The cause of the withdrawal is
given as the refusal of the rank and
file of the miners to make certain con
cessions. It may be that the labor
leaders felt that a time of unemploy
ment was not a time to work for large
results. There is a better chance that
the English workers, have not yet fully
learned the lesson of solidarity. The
great trusts have nothing much to feat
so long as they can fight union labor
in separate groups, one at a time.

BIG VALUE OF SELF-FEEDER
Experiments xShow Pigs Make Mora
Gain Than When Hand-Fed by
Man and Eat Less, Too.
Expenses may be made less-by the
use of the self-feeding plan in prefer
ence to the hand-feeding system In
the hog lot. An experiment was con
ducted at the Kansas State Agricultur
al college to show the value of the
self feeder in fattening 75-pound pigs,
and at the same time to show the
amount of tankage required to balance
a corn ration. This experiment was
carried on by Dr. C. W. McCampbell,
E. F. FerrinT and H. B. Winchester, In
swine feeding investigations in 1918
Twenty pigs of the^game age, quali
ty, condition, and weight, were put
into two dry lots in groups of ten.
The pigs in lot 1 ate from a self feed
er, that was divided in two compart
ments, one having shelled corn and the
other tankage. The pigs in lot 2 were
gnen all they could eat twice a day
of mixture of ten parts shelled corn
and one part tankage. They were
watered twice a day in both lots ahd
the experiment was carried on for
one hundred days. Three days at the
beginning and end of the test the pigs
were weighed and all weights and ex
penses were carefully recorded.
The pigs in lot one .ate more corn
and less tankage than the hand-fed
pigs in lot 2. That a 5 per cent tank
age could balance a corn ration In fat
tening 75-pound pigs was shown from
this experiment, because the self-fed
pigs consumed one part tankage and
20 parts corn.
A 100-pound gain in hand-fed pigs
was produced by 6 8 bushels of corn
and 38 pounds of tankage, and the
same gain was produced in the self
fed lot "by 5.8 bushels of corn and
17 66" pounds of tankage, that is to
say that the corn with tankage pro
duced 14.7 pounds of pork in the hand
fed lot and 17 pounds of pork in the

his food. The hand-fed pig is fed twice
a day and he eats all he can hold at
that time. Perhaps this is the reason
why the self-fed pig took less food to
produce this 100-pound gain.
At the end of this test the pigs in
lot 1 made a profit of $7.35 per head
more than the hand-fed and they re
quired less feed, and less labor to
make the 100-pound gain.
