East or West tional .Association of Manufacturers brought a carload of evidence of all kinds of lobby crookedness and this was taken up by a house committee (although a senate committee was do ing a very good job on the work) and the house committee has lathered the popular branch of congress with enough lime to make it look like a negro woodshed on a foggy night. The majority report of the so-called I Alulhall investigating committee, head I ed by Finis .1. Garrett, of Tennessee, j and signed in addition by Cyrus Cline, of Indiana; Joe Russell, of Missouri; Scott Ferris, of Oklahoma, (Demo icrals), and AVm. H. Stafford, of 'Wis consin, and Frank B.

That is that this is only ni ether phase of the desperate war taking plaee between the vested interest-! of the country and organized lcrnr. Indeed, the two contestants ar- in no doubt as to this.

Tn this report plain graft, is labeled as "indiscretion" and the real truth is covered up with a lot of insipid crltt cism of non-essentials. Only one member of the committee had the courage to approach the truth as disclosed by the overwhelming weight of testimony. This is Repre sentative William J. MacDonald, o( Michigan, a new member who has not succeeded to the tradition that the j house must protect its reputation at I (he expense of truth. MacDonald has j brought In a minority report which is j readable and enlightening as to wha" I is really back of this lobby activity. "There has been- broadcast in tho land for many years," says Mr. Mat Donald, "a suspicion of the condition currency i existing in congress which the revela i tions of this inquiry will tend, and An immediate change took place, j have tended by their publication in the public press, to absolutely con ! firm. This suspicion has developed in public estimation to a state thai amounts to a profound distrust of the j whole system of the legislative branch, because of the influence that have directed its activities as well as i surrounded it. The belief has been common among the people that the large special interests of the country were so firmly entrenched in and sur rounding the legislative branch, that, by reason of the system built up under their Influence, the enactment of remedial laws, popularly demanded, 'has been either denied or only par i tially accorded and then reluctant- Hated forces was directed to the pre vention of legislation that would liber ii te in any degree the laboring forces or lessen the privilege of the interests for whom these officers assumed to , net." ' The whitewashing job was neatly completed by the house organization when on the floor Mr. MacDonald of fered two privileged resolutions call ing on the house to punish for con , tempt Messrs. Bird, Kirby, Emery, ! Alulhall and other officials of N. A. M. ond to proceed to determine whether or not to expel Congressman McDer , mott, of Illinois. Although under th.e rules entitled to an hour In his own right, and although he could not be in i tf.rrupted except for a point of order questioning the privileged character of the resolutions, nevertheless Speak jer Clark, assisted by Finis J. Garrett, i rolled out the steamroller, and Gar jiett was permitted to make a motion to refer these resolutions to the ju diciary committee (the graveyard of the house) ; the speaker entertained the motion; it passed; and on a de manded rollcall only 23 members of ! the house had the courage to rise and i defy the house, WHOLESALE AND RETAIL Flour Hay, Grain, Potatoes and Salt.

Currency is not a party question like the tariff. Partisan action should not be al lowed to rush ill-advised and half baked legislation upon the country. I hold that the Glass-Owen bill is de signed with political aims as its main basis. It is a Democratic caucus measure which has not hud general debate.

Heserve funds now on deposit with national banks in reserve or central reserve cities, should not be trans ferred to government reserve banks, otherwise a general calling of loans by national banks would follow, and financial and business trouble could not be avoided. Reserve funds left on deposit with national banks, under proper restric tions, could be made just as available j as if actually ou deposit with federal reserve banks. This would obviate j the financial panic the Glass-Owen bill reserve conditions would precipitate, i To preserve a sound financial stand- ing, the form and tenor of notes must be prescribed by law and not left to ! the discretion of a political board such as proposed in this bill. Every national bank should be al-1 lowed to submit a fixed per cent of its j paper to the government reserve bank ! at least every thirty days, and if such paper be sound, have it certified as available for currency issue. This would eliminate the possibility ; of discrimination in times of money i stringency. ) The independence of banks should j be encouraged by making financial ' and political discrimination iinpossi- j ble. : To further insure protection to indi- j viduals and legitimate business inter ests against unfair discrimination by ' banks, some method of appeal to gov- ered by these transactions for insid ious, secret and sinister influence and operation are plain.
