Lean candidate for United States Sen
at» accompaaied by Judge Edmund
Nichols of Billings, addressed a large
and appreciative audience at Work
ers Hall Tuesday night. Judge Nich
ole preceded Mr. Linderman and made
an .Interesting talk on National Issues,
referred to Mr. Linderman
In his talk; Judge Hie no la
a man, who was ably fitted to
represent our interests in national af
frin, while not being a politican but
a man of literary attainments and
abiRty, the type of man most needed
at this time, the man possessing the
"understanding heart.".
P. Wicher presided at the meeting.
Mr. Linderman in his talk convinced
every one present that he is a man of
sincere character, who would stand
firmly for the principles of the Repub
lican party and work earnestly' for
the interest of the fanner and all
other classes of citizens. Having
lived in Montana for forty yers, he!
to** followed the growth and develop
of tbs Treasure state and is well
aquainted* with her need*. As s story
taller Mr. Linderman is without an
equal and his speech was one that ap
; »led to the audience, enlivened as it
was with his inimitable stories. Mr.
Linderman'a speech is in part as fol-1

Ing, to Uttie better then
camp, while the Orieetal giant haa
suddenly stripped himself of the leih
argy of his dreams and is cutting
throat». Invited by false prophets
and demigogues suspicion and dis
trust arc whispering lies into the
world's ears. They are even here
with their whisperings, and there nev-,
er was a time in our country's history
whe- there was greater need of pa
triotism than now.
There never has
been a time when the cool, fearless
Americanism of Calvin Coolidge has
been so much needed
as now, when
in high places, instead of offer
ing collaboration to mitigate the un
rest in our land, aie heaping fuel up
on the fire, selfishly hopi.ig to gain
personal political strength from the
ranks of the discontented.
"Bred right, a student of both books
and men, frugal, sincere and honest;
never evading an issue, but instead,
in the very face of his campaign dnr-ihe
ing to do what he believed to
fight regardless of consequences to
himself—never without dignity, yet
personifying the plainness of
American citizenship at Its best, Cal
vin Coolidge, able and holding to high
Ideals, is the man who will guide us
safely through this period of unrest
and strife—keep us safe and sane,
even through the rest of the world
"Now in electing him let us not tie
his hands that his enemies may cruci
fy him. But let us, instead, give him
. republican Co^ „ thu. hi. pre
try and the world may be carried out.
Let us not forget that Senator Walsh
is against Calvin Coolidge. Hear
what he said of the President in his
Helena speech.

«R»! from four to oigne cents below
tile Winn«peg market But in the fall,
after the tariff became effective
Minneapolis price on hard spring
wheat ranged from 24 cents to 31
cent» above the Winnepeg prices. And
Mr. Walsh voted against the
gency tariff and by his vote declared
that the Montana farmer should not
receive the benefit of this higher price
for wheat. Commencing with Janu
ary 1922 and running throughout the
year the Minneapolis market ran 23,
24, 18, 17, 12, 14, 16, 16, 23 cents
per pushei higher than the Winnepeg
market. So the tariff is working to
the benefit of the farmer.
Now a monument for the terrible
wheat-draw-back, or rebate provision
of the tariff law. Under this provis
ion the importer pays full duty on the
wheat and receives a refund of 99 per
cent of the duty paid when the flour
j produced by the wheat is exported.
' And one of the stipulations of thia
law is that 30 per cent of American
wheat must have been mixed with it.
The records of the Department of
Agriculture show that in all of the
history of the existing tariff law

which a draw-back was allowed
17,438 bushels—one fair crop for a
good sized Montana farm, hardly
enough to smash a wheat market.

"We are all complaining, and justly,
of our taxes. Somebody has said that
Economy, after a Democratic Admia
stration is not a policy: it is a neces
dty'. Eight years of Democratic Ad
manufactured, the building of ship
yards which never built a single ship,
the erection of powder plants that
made millionaires but not a pound of
powder. Why they even bought four
or five branding irons for each caval
ry horse and mule in the army, and
for some that weren't in the army, 20,
000 sets of horse-harness for motor
ambulances and 46 bread cans for
every soldier in the army.
But there is no good tu whining ov
er what the Democratic party, as our
selected agent, did in eight years. It
capY.r.i exmnarm ?adeta SS
contracted a debt that we must
—much of it with taxe. In 1021 when
tha Republican party replaced the
Democratic Administration the
pie of this country were paying the
highest tax ever levied in its history,
year And this year, the revenue act
es were reduced one billion dollars per
•nd before 1921 had passed federal tax
reduced the taxes four hundred roil
iion dollars. President Coolidge has
insisted upon a further reduction of
taxes, especially of the high sur-Ux
es, because they are not productive.
This 1st is not essentially « Republcan
doctrine. President Wilson believed
ih It, and so did Mr. Carter Glass, the
Democratic Secretary of the Treasury,
But the Democratic party does not be
lieve in It, or it says that it doesn't.
Let us spend a minute here.

land that in 1923 the percentage of
tax-exempt securities in these estates
had riseD to 28 , 97
per cent. Exper
ience has taught us that the high
tax, aimed at great wealth as it
has not brought satisfactory results.
Capital has gone on a strike, and to
«void the high surtax has hidden be
hind the tax-exempt
securities or
drifted abroad to find employment,
We cannot force it into open invest
ment any more than we can oblige la
bor to remain at employment under
conditions which it deems oppressive,
Capital argues thus—Tf under the
' high surtax I go into business and lose
the Government will not help me bear
my losses, but on the other hand, if I
venture and am successful the
Government that would not help
;n case of failure would take half my
gain.' The high surtax has not
complished its purpose. Whenever the
surtax is raised the incomes reported |
for taxation diminish—wealth hides—
goes on a strike, while whenever thc ,
surtax has been lowered capital pays
the Government more in dollar* and
cents. Besides it comes out in the
open, works, give« employment to la
bor, and increasing, pays more and
more of taxes to Uncle Sam thereby
reducing general taxation
As the matter »Und» today 1 be
lieve that every tax-exempt security
issued is just that much debt added to
the backs of the people. The increas
Jed debt at once begins to draw inter
est from the tax-payers, and someday
the debt must be paid. No matter
how wc argue or trot around this I
truth with reasons why it is not good :
policy, the tax-exempt security must
go, or we must cut the surtax. Under
present conditions, with the surtax !
working, the average citizen is paying
dodging taxation. Somebody must pay

Local M. E. Church
Closes Greatest Year
In Its History
With grateful acknowledgment to
Almighty God for hi» guidance and
goodness we deair« to submit to the
public, and to our many friends the
following statement. During the pus
torate of the present incumbent, the
Rev. F, C. Fulford reports having one
hundred and eleven new members, and
the church has baid about $3000.00
dollars for benevolences. This amount
has been given largely for hospitals
and missionary purposes. During the
same three year period the church
has taken care of its own financial
upkeep, having been able to pay its,
bills promptly the first of .every
month. Also, the sum of $13080.00
dollars has been spent on new im-1
provements; this includes the pur
chase price of the new church, re
modeling the same, réinstallation of
furnace, new lighting system, furn
ishingt, calsomlning eft:,, and fencing
and painting the parsonage. This
•mount has all been paid with the ex-,
ception of $276.00 dollars, which
has been voluntarily assumed by the
Ladies Aid Society as one if the small
chores for their program this year.
We are justly proud of our church
plant, and including the parsonage it
is easily worth $26,000,00. During the
past year the Ladies Aid Society with
about fifty members under the lead
ship of Mrs. J. F. Brophy raised the
sum of $1300.00. Thu writer doe* not
recall during the year» of his exper
ience another lady who haa had U>e!
abliity, the grace, and efficiency in di
reeling the affairs of such a society,,
