Cull 100,000 Men At Once.
The Caledonian believes Congress
should authorize and instruct the
president to call 100,000 men to mili
tary service at once, the men so call
ed to be divided among the different
branches of service as required to
bring each department into a state of
preparedness and efficiency. The
term of enlistment should be three
years and the men called promoted
to officers upon their merits.
For months the matter of prepared
ness has been agitated but nothing
has been done to give the country
preparedness. Congress has author
ized an increase of about 20,000 men
to the regular army but no such ad
dition has been made. The painfully
impotent condition of our navy, the
only organization that could defend
us from attack by a foreign foe, has
been made common knowledge, but
the senate has passed a bill authoriz
ing a government armor plate plant,
an act that will make impossible any
addition to our naval strength for
years. Meanwhile we have been at
tacked on American territory by a
Mexican bandit, American citizens
have been massacred both upon our
own soil and in Mexico. Germany has
brazenly violated her pledges to re
spect the rights of American citizens
and is openly engaged in a campaign
of extermination of neutral citizens
upon the sea. Germany seems to be
making a slow but steady advance
against Verdun and defeating the al
lied powers of Europe. If Germany
wins the world is at her mercy and
the women and girls of the United
States would be undergoing the un
speakable horrors that have been per
petuated upon women-kind in the
path of their invasions of Europe.
America has acted. effectively we
trust, for the punishment of Villa but
it has not raised a hand to prevent
unrestricted outrages upon American
citizens by Germany, and Germans
believe we are too cowardly to do so.
It will not change Its policy until It is
convinced we are able to compel her
to do -so. On the contrary, It will
further humiliate and offend the coun
try that will not defend itself. De
spite these facts Congress waits upon
the president and he is potteringly in
vestigating each individual outrage
and allowing this country slowly to
drift into a disastrous international
The country is not prepared to equip
100,000 men for actual service, not
prepared to send a fleet to sea to des
troy an invading host, not prepared to
man the coast defenses, not prepared
to construct battleships, submarines,
aeroplanes, antl-air-craf t guns, not
prepared to supply ammunition or to
mobolize large armies. It will not be
prepared for any of these things un
less our congressmen are ready to
subordinate personal politics to na
tional necessities. If we wait until
the country is prepared for all these
things before we call for the men we
shall never get the men.
We sincerely hope that the 100,000
men to be called for military and
naval service would never have to
fight a single battle but they would
give this country a nucleus of trained
men who could act In case of neces
sity. We believe such a force would
be the strongest guaranty of peace
and honor the nation could have. The
hazard of unpreparedness must be
evident to all. To leave the country
exposed to it would be a crime as
black as the treason of Benedict Ar
nold. This country must act or fall.
Therefore we appeal to every mem
ber of Congress without regard to
pollcal affiliations to act for the safety
and honor of his country. Give us
preparedness in men, in equipment and
intralnlng that will ward off murder,
insult, destruction and give us power,
honor and proctectlon.
Editor Tobin of the Swanton Cour
ier has pulled off another original
stunt. The enterprising people of
Swanton gave him $8.31 worth of ad
vertising for one week and he came
out the next week with a four-page
paper saying that was as good a pa
per as the advertisers were paying
for. His paper came out with eight
pages the next week. An eight-page
pager should be a good servant for
Swanton merchants, If they are only
live enough to use it. 3
Possible Help For Farmers.
After years of Investigation and agU
tation congress ha before It for con
sideration a National Farm-Loan Act
known as the Moss-Hollis Bill that
there is promise may be enacted into
law. Unless prevented by the more
serious business of considering our
foreign relations the house will begin
consideration of this measure next
week. The title of the bill sets forth
these objects: To provide capital for
agricultural development, to create a
standard form of investment based
upon farm mortgage, to equalize rates
of interest upon farm loans, to furn
ish a market for United States bonds,
to create government depositaries and
financial agents for the United States
and for other purposes.
The bill provides-for a federal farm
loan board and under its supervision
twelve land banks are to be organ
ized, one in each of the twelve dis
tricts Into which the country will be
divided, each bank to have a capital
of not less than $500,000. These land
banks are to make the loans, receive
and deposit with the registrar the
mortgages that secure them and issue
bonds against the, mortgages. These
bonds are to bear a low rate of inter
estone per cent lower than the in
terest on the mortgage and be ex
empt from taxation. It Is expected
the Tate of interest on the bonds will
be four per cent and this will be the
net income to the owner of the bonds.
The loans are to be made through
local loan associations made up of ten
or more persons who desire to bor
row money. They must appro've of
the loan before it will be granted by
the land bank and accept a certain lia
bility for its payment. The local
loan associations must become
stockholders of the land banks to the
extent of five per cent of the loans
made to their members, each one of
which must hold at least one share In
their local association. The loans can
not be for more than fifty per cent of
value of the mortgaged property.
The loan can run from five to thirty
six years, the interest and a portion
of the loan paid every six months,
enough so the loan will be entire
ly paid at the expiration of the term
for which it is made. It is expected
the rate of interest on these loans
will be five per cent, not much of a
saving for a Vermont farmer, but in
the West and South where they are
paying ten and twelve per cent, a
great saving.
The bonds will have back of them:
The personal' obligation of the bor
rower; the real estate mortgaged,
carefully appraised to be worth twice
the amount of the loan; the indorse
ment of the local association or agent
of the Federal land bank; the cap!
tal not less than $500,000 and sur
plus of the Federal land bank; the
guaranty of all the Federal land
banks (12); the approval of the bond
issue by the Federal Farm Loan
Board; the protection of Government
supervision similar to that of the
national banks; the amortization pay
ments which the borrower is obliged
to make at every interest-paying per
iod, thereby increasing the security,
or rather diminishing the debt, con
stantly toward the vanishing point.
The purposes for which loans can
be had are clearly set forth to be:
To provide for the purchase of a
farm for a home.
To provide for the purchase of
equipment, fertilizers, and live stock
necessary for the proper and reason
able operation of the farm, the term
"equipment" to be defined by the Fed
eral Farm Loan Board.
To provide buildings and for the im
provement of farm lands.
To liquidate indebtedness of the ow
ner of the land mortgaged existing at
the time the loan association Is es
tablished or Incurred for one of the
aforementioned purposes.
Senator Fletcher of Florida in dis
cussing the measure said of the bill:
"One of the first effects will be to re
duce the charges, expenses, commis
sions, and interest now borne by the
farmers of the country on loans, about
one-half. This will save to them a.n
annual outlay of some $200,000,000.
"No industry of the country has

ever istood or could have stood the
enormous burdens of this kind that
agriculture has been obliged to bear
during all the years of the past."
This gives one an idea of what the
law is planned to be. There is an ex
pectation the bill somewhat amended
will be passed. If it will grant the re
lief Sen. Fletcher predicts it will tre
mendously benefit the agricultural in
terests of the country. We question
somewhat the safety of making loans
for five per cent in a section of the
country where the banks are charg
ing ten and twelve per cent. The in
vestment must be very risky or bor
rowers would not be compelled to pay
such exorbitant rates. The man se
curing a loan in a section of the coun
try charging six per cent or less on
farm mortgages is liable for the loans
made in the more risky sections of
the country and may properly hesi
tate to assume'such a liability. There
seem to be many more desirable fea
tures In the Landschaft of Germany,
a system that we may consider later.
Proof of Statements "Wanted.
Stephen E. Royce of St. Albans is
reported to have said In a public ad
dress in tha city last week that ac
cording to statistics, over 90 per cent
of the bread winners of the country
had average earnings of $300 a year,
of which they spent $285 and saved,
only $15. Of the $285 expended, $56
went for taxes.
"Six percent of the people have in
comes averaging $1600 a year, of
which $1200 went for expenses, $224
of this amount going for taxes.
"Four per cent of the heads of
families had incomes averaging $17,-
000. The average expenditures of
this wealthy class were $9730 a year
and the average amount of this paid
for taxes was only $620.
"Mr. Royce estimated the average
taxes per person at $50 a year, or
$150 a year for each head of the fam
ily, whose average Income today was
$600 or $700."
These figures Indicate that the
bread winner with an income of $300
per year spends eighteen and two
thirds per cent of his gross income for
taxes, the people with $1600 income
spend fourteen per cent, those with
$17,000 income spend three and
eleven-seventeenths per cent and those
with $700 income spend twenty-one
and three-sevenths per cent.
These statements are mighty im
portant, if true. But who can believe
that a man with $300 Income per year
spends $56 a year for taxes. Such
men have no property to be taxed.
The average poll tax cannot exceed
four dollars per year and we know of
no other tax a man with such a piti
fully small income is asked to pay.
We are not so well informed on the
matter of taxation as Mr. Royce but
we challenge the accuracy of his
statements and would respectfully ask
for proof of the truth of the same.
Among the "achievements" of the
democratic administration, Josephus
Daniels mentions "a revision of the
tariff so as to help the average man."
Help him how? Threw him out of
a job; made him go on half time;
caused the small business man to face
bankruptcy; Increased the cost of liv
ing; gave the foreign laborer a market
here for his products. Josephus was
manager of the democratic publicity
service of the last campaign. If he Is to
have a controlling influence in the
publicity work of the next campaign
he will find out mighty soon that
democratic candidates want no men
tion of the democratic tariff.
Gov. Johnson of California has just
issued a proclamation refusing about
5500 corporations the right to do
business in that state because they
have failed to pay the state franchise
tax of last year. Among the corpora
tions who have failed to pay is the
Ford Automobile Company which"
owes $24,000 tax for last year. The
company refuses to pay because it
considers the tax excessive. To an
outsider it would look as though the
state of California Is trying to be too
hoggish with ouside interests.

Supt. Lowe's Report.
In his report, Supt. R. F. Lowe of
the St. Johnsbury district characteriz
ed the past year as a time of "unusual
ministerial stringency" and a period
of "unexpected victories." Under the
heading of material improvements the
superintendent refers to the construc
tion of a $70,000 edifice for Grace
church in S Johnsbury, repairs, to
the church at Newport Center, changes
at Holland, Island Pond, South Al
bany, Albany, Lowell, West Burke,
Lyndonville, East Lyndon, Irasburg
Plainfield, Danville, Peacham and
Greensboro Bend; and also a new pipe
organ at Orleans.
Some of the churches have slightly
increased their minister's salaries and
frequently the ministers are paid
weekly. Endowments are generally
well invested. The debt on the dis
trict parsonage has been wiped out.
The ladies aid societies are given
great commendation by the superin
tendent. Evangelistic work has not
been allowed to suffer amid the other
activities, and Superintendent Lowe
reports considerable progress along
that line in many of the towns.
In closing his report, Superintendent
Lowe made two suggestions, the first
of which was to have the minister and
the laity get together and determine
to destroy the bad habit of talking
down the Methodist church, of pick
ing flaws and looking on the dark
side of things, and the second of which
is to have a definite objective for th
conference and for each individual
church. "The church is not here to
save itself but to save the world. The
pastor is not here to save a little coter
ie of people called saints or church
members. We must either earnestly
attempt to save the community and
the world or to spend our lives fruit
lessly." At the session Wednesday a resolu
tion endorsing national prohibition was
adopted and signed by the presiding
officer of the conference. Bishop Ham
ilton, and ministers. The Rev. C. H.
Smith of the Anti-Saloon league spoke
briefly of that organization's plans for
the next few years, education, and an
effort to defeat any legislation favor
able to the saloon. He said he had
just emerged from a clclone cellar.
John E. Weeks of Middlebury Has
Publicly Announced His Candidacy
Speaker John E. Weeks of the Ver
mont House has announced his candi
dacy for lieutenant-governor of Ver
mont in the following statement:
"I have been asked by many friends
whether I would be a candidate for
lieutenant governor. It is perhaps
due to those who have kindly offered
me their support, and also fair to other
possible candidates, that I should an
nounce at this time that I will be a
candidate for the Republican nomi
nation for this office. If I am nom
inated I shall try to do my part tow
ard a vigorous and earnest campaign
If I am elected, I will do what I can
to secure as prompt dispatch of legis
lative business as Is consistent with
thorough consideration and fairness
to every interest.
"I believe that the future of Ver
mont depends not so much upon high
sounding phrases In party platforms
as upon the selection of capable, fair
minded men as legislators and state
officers. I stand for everything that
can be done to assist both the agricul
tural and manufacturing industries of
the state, for the greatest economy
consistent with efficiency In the man
agement of state institutions, for the
continuation of the Vermont good
roads policy, for equity in taxation, for
fair labor legislation, and for endeaV
or to enforce more strictly the laws
we have rather than to enact a large
number of new ones.
"While I ani a Republican, the du
ties of the lieutenant .governor are so
largely concerned with state matters
that if I receive the nomination I shall
appeal for support to men of all par
ties, and if elected, I will try to per
form the duties of the office solely in
the interest of Vermont."

Due to the great European war, there is practically

purposes. This scarcity makes those commercial
fertilizers which depend on potash far too expensive
for the majority of farmers.
Extensive experiments have been carried on by the Lowell
Fertilizer Co. in conjunction with farm experts. The results have
proven that larger amounts of organic ammonia and phosphoric add
than are ordinarily used will practically act in the place of potash I

that good crops can be grown without the added expense of potash.

Animal Fertilizer on his farm :
"In regard to fertilizers without potash. I used the three
kinds you sent me. with good results. They were compared
with a few tons of last year's goods containing S percent,
potash. These I planted in plots throughout the field, a
ton or so in the plot, and when I dug my potatoes, I could

30 or 40 tons of your fertilizer next year, and if I cannot
get potash at a fair price, will use without potash.
