ST. HELENS MIST. FRIDAY. APRIL 11. 1919
6 CONGRESS WILL COMBAT THE BURLESON REGIME Arbitrary Acta of ",e Postmaster General Will bo Investigated CANADA TO LOAN MONEY FOR HOMES Government Provide Fund for Building Worker Dwellings By Snell Smith Washington "It will be car policy t make careful Inq airy Into the con duct of the postal service, with a view to eliminating wasteful expen dltures and faulty readjustment of the compensation of the employes upon an equitable basis and other wise Improve their working condi tions, to the end that efficiency ot the service of which there Is now universal complaint may be raised to the highest possible standard. W shall oppose a continuance ot the present autocratic and despotic con trol of the telegraph and telephcnes, and favor their return to their own ers, subject to the regulation of the people in the local communities, or of the Interstate commerce commis sion as to interstate traffic, as pre scribed by law." So said Representative Halyor Steenerson of Minnesota, the new chairman ot the House committee ou post offices and post roads, recently. Full of vim and energy, several Inches over six fee; In height and built in proportion, he Is preparing to devote all his ttrength. In con Junction with the other members of the committee, to cleaning up the post office departm nt as administer ed by Postmaster C oneral Burleson. He Is particularly rnxious that tho telephone and teleiriph companies shall not be used for political pur pose which must ba paid for by the taxpayers. The Postal Telegraph Company formerly had a net annual income of $12,000,000. Burleson reduced It to $4,000,000. The gov ernment guaranteed the dividends of both It and the Western Union and then Increased operating costs to such an extent that a deficit wlh have to be paid by Congress. In view of the fact that th post office de partment Is handling hundreds ot millions of dollars ot receipts 01 both the telephone find telegrrph companies, without restraint or au thority of Congress, It Is likely tha during the new sesFlon, to be called before summer, a thorough inquiry Canada has provided $25,000,000 to be loaned to worklngmen who de sire to build homes, according to tho Rev. Peter Bryce, of Toronto, t member of the Canadian housing commission Mr. Bryce has been visiting various cities in the United States for the purpose of collect'ng data on war work: "The Province of Ontario voted $8,000,000 to be added to the hous ing fund for all Canada," he said; "85 per cent of a $3,000 Is to be loaned at 5 per cent Interest." The need of houses in Canada has reached a point where relief was ftecessarv, but the shortage Is not so great as in the United States, where it to oatimntnit mnrn than GOO. 000 dwellings are required to meet tht normal demand, after the suspension of building during the period In j ,-t,ih imArln wn nnenured In the i war. Twenty cities in various States i I have already begun active own your own home campaigns and from all, i parts of the country reports of a re vival Of construction worK are com ii.g in to the United States Depart ment of Labor, which is engagpd In a nation-wide effort to stimulate building. The Scottish branc!- cf tVo British Red Cross maintains t home for p.xra lzcd Scotch soldiers and sillurs. will be Instituted to determine Jus. what autocratic methods were pur sued by Burleson and just what caus ed paying companies under private control to meet with a large deficit under public ownership. In an efforr to make up this shortage the depart ment Increased long distance tele- ! phone rates, but this is said to havo had a disappointing eitect, ior me reason that the higher rates caused the. number ot calls to fall off enormously. It is Steenerson's In tention also to prevent further unfair discrimination in salaries in the post office department. FARM GRAINS MAKE GOOD FOWL FEED Whe-.t Is generally consldotod the safest grain to be fed alone. It Is not qulto bo rattening as corn, too fattening whon fed alone. Thlb grain should be supplemented by some meat feed or skimmed milk to Increase the proportion of protein. Wheat contains more protein than corn, about the same amount of car bohydrates, but less fat, and on the whole la considered not so valuable for fattening, but better for growth. Wheat screenings. If they are of a good grade, can frequently be pur chased and ted to advantage. Of course there Is always the danger ot Introducing weed soed on the farm. "Burnt wheat" can seldom be fed advantageously, the difference In price between this and good wheat being usually too slight to warrant one. In feeding It. Oats are often fed for variety, but are not well liked unless hulled, tin, hulls being tough and rather Indi gestible. Hulled oats, on the othe hand, are relished by poultry and are excellent for producing eges. When ho nhtnlned at a reasonable price In comparison with other grains they may ue rea quite largei;. Barley does not seem to be great 1v rotixheri hv hens, but mar be used to give variety to the grain ration. It has a little more protein man corn nml it 111 t Ih lens I linn oats. IlnUixlieol la nude well liked or fowls, but is not very widely fed. K may be fed to vary the ration. Buck wheat middlings are rich In protein and make a good mixture with corn meal. Rye Is not fed largely, and does not seem to be much relished by poultry. It is supposed to cause bowel trouble when fed freely.

CO. 621 Thurman Street Portland ASK FOR THE BERGMANN WATERPROOF SHOE OIL Washington Secretary of War Baker and General March, chief of staff, are charged by members ot Congress with having entered Into nn apparent agreement to prevent General Pershing, hero of the war with Germany and a Republican, from making public his plan, based upon actual experience in command at the front, for the reorganization of the service after the treaty of peace has been actually signed. General Pershing's report, made to , the Secretary of War, Ilea Becurely ! tucked away In a war department pigeon hole. Meanwhile March and ! Baker are hurrying through the de tails of a plan prepared far away from the front in Washington by those not directly In the fight. This scheme gives concentrated powers to the chief of staff. Proposed to mem ' bers of the military affairs commtt- 1 tee of the House and Senate, It re ' suited In a snub for Goneral March. ! Hence one of the first military acts i of the new Republican Congress will ; be to demand of the war department that It turn over the Pershing docu- ment so that a policy may be de ' veloped based upon facts gained from the war's battles and organization.
