TELEPHONE NUMBER NINE £ditcrta£ Ifj THB BULWARK OF AMERICAN LIBERTIES IS THB COUNTRY NEWSPAPER A PREYERTED IDEA * The attention of Chronicle readers is called to a news story in this issue which tells of the circulation of! initiative petitions to repeal the legislative act creating the state board of rail way commissioners and substituting in its place a body controlled by the appointive power. Coming from an unknown source, this at tack upon the public service board of the state proves to be a tribute to the effectiveness of the work of that body in that certain interests j apparently are not satisfied with the work of the board in the interests of the people as a whole. Under the present law, membership on the board is obtainable only through election by a majority of the voters of the state. It would be a move backward for the people of Montana to abolish the present elective system and bring into being the possibility of an abuse of the ap pointive power to a board the work of which is of! such vast and far reaching importance to the people of the state. No criticism can be leveled at the personel of the present board, who have painstakingly served Montana and through their activity saved the people many thousands of dollars in public service and transportation rate adjust ments. -To deprive themselves of the right to continue in the naming of the board member ship to maintain that body at its present high cajidard would be little of a calamity and we do not belive that Montana people as a whole will interest themselves very strongly in the work of pushing the initiative measure. i l MORE TAX-FREE PEOPLE—LESS TAX FREE BONDS f Congress at its next session will consider an amendemnt to the Federal Constitution which provides for taxing the income from future is sues ofi state and municipal bonds by the Fed eral Government. It also provides that states may tax the incomes from future issues of gov ernment bonds that are owned within their bor ders. In plain English this means that the in come derived from tax-exempt bonds, instead of being tax-free as in the past, would here after be subject to taxation in the same manner as income earned in any manner whatsoever. More than a billion dollars in now diverted every year from agriculture and business to tax-free bonds. This is a knife that cuts both ways. It deprives industry of the needed capi - tal and it shifts heavier taxes upon agriculture and business. If that leak is stopped by the passage of the amendment, agriculture and business will thrive as never before. Tax-free bonds and heavy suretaxes do not promote good times. Lower surtaxes with no more tax-free bonds will promote prosperity. I Two candidates have already filed for judge of this district, Lou Haven county attorney of Big Horn county and E. E, Collins, a Billings attorney who filed last Monday. No appoint ment was made to fill the vacancy in this dis trict caused by the resignation of Judge Spen cer last March. As the primary election draws closer ( and it IS now only about sixty days) candidates are coming forth and filing for office thick and fast. Regardless of weather conditions, hail, grasshoppers and 'sich' which would affect oth er crops, the crop of candidates will be bounti ful. Aspirants for state offices are showing up every day and in a number of other counties the political pots have already began to boil. So far there has been but little stir among the of office seekers in Carbon county, however we have it there are a goodly number who are pre pared to toss their "kelly" in the ring in the near future.

PROPS Robinson Crusoe Did Not Quit Nne of the most persistent adver-1 Users in the history of success was Robinson Crusoe. He knew what he wanted—a ship—and he put up an ad for one. He flung a shirt on a pole at the top of his island; that, in the language of the sea, was plain to j every sea-faring man. The circulation was small there was no other medium but Crusoe kept at it, despite the fact that be got no inquiries for a long time. He changed his copy—as one garment after an other was frayed out—and in the end got what he wanted. Suppose Crusoe had taken down that signal after a time and declared "Ad where would vertising doesn't pay.' he and his story be now? Put up your signal and keep it there. Crusoe advertised under very discouraging circumstances. You've got a sure thing—it is only necessary Grain growers can lessen their hail risks by pooling their hail in surance with other Montana farm ers in the State Hail Department.

A Hail Insurance Policy Will Not Break You— A HAIL LOSS MAY FOR ATTORNEY GENERAL Edmond G. Toomey OF HELENA—REPUBLICAN To the People of Montana— T am a candidate for the Republican nomination for Attorney General. That fact, however, does not mean that I am going to try to be all things to all men. 1 make only one pledge—the same pledge to each man and each woman in Mon tana: DAILY DEVOTION TO THE DETAILED ENFORCEMENT OF LAW, WITHOUT THOUGHT OF POLITICS. You fix the duties of the Attorney General as the chief law officer of Montana. I take it that you expect him to perform those duties with an eye single to the maintenance of law as the very foundation of orderly government. I believe that the Attorney General's office should be as clean and as free from politics as the courts; that the Attorney General should never tolerate the intrusion of poli tics; that you demand that he mind the business of his office and nothing else. Accordingly, I have no gold-brick relief to romise the farmers, no prize packages for the merchants, no lottery tickets fhr the industrial workers, no promises on the side to any particular group or interest in Montana. If I am elected I will try the State's cases in the courts and not in the newspapers, in and out of political season; I will give the Supreme Court the most loyal and helpful service that is possible with the means at hand, and I will furnish state and county officers prompt and hearty aid, by opinion and action, in the execution of their official duties. As a member of the State's Fiscal Boards, I will absolutely insist on the state government getting back on a cr.sh basis, in obedience to the Constitution of Mon tana, as soon as that is humanly possible. I have spoken plainly because I have too high a regard for my fellow Montanans to indulge in the customary campaign peneralties. If I cannot be elected on the above principles, I prefer not to undertake the office."
