PAGE TWO DAILY ARDMOREITE Sunday, June 30, WW Watch On the Rhine" Can Be Heard in Ireland Dublin, May 30 ( Correspondence nf The Associated Press). "Ireland is not jro- iertnan," declare all the Irish baders, but there is a consid erable element in Dublin, Cork and other Iri.-h cities that is ready to cr? "I'p the Htm" at every opportunity. During the week following the arrest of I'e Ynhr.i anil the other Sinn Fein leaders, the strains of the "Watch on the Rhine" were fre quently, heard on Dublin streets, siiti)? by sla crowds of Sinn I'Vin sympathizers. It has been frequent ly recorded that Irish hoodlums at the moving picture theaters have hissed picture-- of Prilish and Amer ican soldiers and sailors, and a let ter in a Dublin newspaper this week states that a moving picture audi i rice cheered a picture of a medal ca-t by the tierrnans to commemo rate the -inking of the l.usitania. One of the most remarkable scenes which The Associated Press corresponde nt witnessd in Dublin i was the i nthusia-t ic cheering of a there appeared a freight train of ten cars containing the "baggage" of the Germans. This amounted to ten car loads of the most unusual baggage that was ever handled on the bank of the River l.il'fey. There were pianos, double-bass violins, ami the whole set of instruments for the camp band; there were sailors' sea trunks of great variety; there was a grand father clock of huge proportions, and a complete set of theatrical properties anil stage scenery, which told of entertainments past or for future production. Khaki-clad dock men perspired over the job of arranging these mountains of baggage into slings, hoisting them on board the steam er, and stowing the stuff away in the hold. The train with the German and Austrian travellers arrived in the started, cheers wecr raised again, the steamer gained headway, the cheer ing died down and the crowds he han to disperse. The soldiers and police on the docks tiled back to their barracks and the festivities were over.

An drew Bonar Law, ISriti.-li chancellor, has given advice that may be heed ed in every allied nation, lie said in a i interview : "Lives must be lived more simply. "Personal, household ami business expenses must be reduced to the minirnu m. " The surplus of weekly or nionth- Honar Law said, "the importance of this cannot he exaggerated. The amount of deposits in the hanks is steadily increasing. It is from the deposits that the subscriptions to the war bonds ought to come. "To lend one's money to the coun try by buying war bonds is a na tional war service second only in importance to actual participation in the armed conflict. Nobody's money can be neutral. "I am confiden tthat the good sense and patriotism of the nation make it unnecessary to ration money. "If every investor, big and small, throughout the country would make it a regular habit to set aside week ly a definite portion of their re sources for immediate investment in war bonds, the 25,(100,000 pounds a week 1 am asking would be easily forthcoming."

If your property was taxed at 100 percent of the valuation and oilier property in the state taxed at a valuation of from 50 to 00 percent, sometimes as hiyh as 75 percent, would you believe that uju, as a taxpayer, were setting a square deal? If the tax rate against your property was .10 mills and the tax rate against other property was less than A) mills, would you be lieve you were getting a square deal? If you were in the oil business and therefore subject to a 30 mill tax and the other mining interests in the state were paying a 5 mill tax, just one-sixth as much, would you believe that you were getting a square deal? If you were a member of the state legislature, solemnly sworn to enact the tax laws of the state fairly and impartially, and if it was made plain to you that the tax law against the oil producers was producing twice as much revenue as was expected from the law when it was enacted, which resulted from the increase in the price of oil, how would you have voted when the oil producers of the state requested a reduction of the tax against them from 3 percent to 2 percent, and even at 2 percent the oil producers were paling somewhat higher taxes than the taxes against other prop erty in the state5 If v. ll bad i , - rr.hkii t.t mbei of the lecislatiirr as n-.i:etrd anl it was made to y t!.at the ,.. industry was being erosslv eriminated acii.-t. w tild you have v..t..J for the re-dii-ti. n of !l,e ,.,v ataiiist the oil producers to a fig me winch in ,ts u-m.Ik still left the oil producers pay mi: a semewh-t h'wbtr t.is than that assessed against other j i. j er:y in t!.
