REPUBLICANS
SEEK TO MAKE
POSITION PLAIN
By Their Action Majority in
Senate Gives Sign to Coun
try on Bonus Bill.
HOURS OF MANEUVERING
WASHINGTON, Juno 21.—8 y their
action Republican eupporters of the
soldiers' bonus bill have sought to make
plain to the country that as soon as the
tariff bill shall have passed, the bonus
legislation would be considered to the
exclusion of all measures excepting those
which could not be postponed. They
were unable to dispose of that question
until after about five hours of debate,
explanations, political by-play, and sharp
maneuvering. , The votes taken demon
strated that any attempts to wreck the
program could be squelched easily.
It was apparent that the sharp dis
putes and counter efforts leading up to
the final roll call severely taxed Senator’s
nerves.
Those opposing the Watson motion to
make the bill a “special order of busi
ness’ included four democrats and four
Republicans, as follows: Democrats—
Dial, South Carolina; King, Utah;
Myers, Montana, and Williams, Mis
sissippi. Republicans—Edge, New Jer
sey; France, Maryland; Pepper, Penn
sylvania, and Wadsworth, New York.
The supporters of the resolution in
cluded seventeen Democrats among whom
were the leading advocates of the sol
diers’ bonus and these who favored dis
placing the tariff bill. They also included
those Republicans such as La Follette,
Wisconsin, and Norris, Nebraska, who in
sisted that the motion be modified so as
Ht to forbid new efforts to lay aside the
tariff bllL
MOTION PROVOKED
BY ROBINSON.
Mr. Watson’s ->tion was provoked by
the charges of St -r Rcblnson of Ar
kansas, that the pa„ ,ge < the soldiers’
bonus bill was imperiled t r the decision
not taking action on the measure until
after the tariff bill had passed.
The vote was taken on a motion to "lay
on the table" the proposal of Mr. Walsh
for immediate consideration of the bonus
was supported by all Republicans except
Senators Norris, Nebr-ska, and La Fol
lfctte. Wisconsin, send opposed by all
Democrats except eight.
After giving assurances that the de
cision of the Republican conference as to
precedure on the soldiers’ bonus bill
would not be abandoned, "Senator McCuin
ber, North Dakota, expressed the opinion
that the President should yield on meas
ures overwhelmingly supported by Con
gress.
The action by President Harding of a
year ago In asking the soldiers' bonus
bill to be recommitted to the Finance
Committee, and to which the Senate ac
quiesced at that time, was denounced by
Mr. Robinson as a precedent “vicious in
every possible way.’’ He charged that
Mr. Harding used “the unlimited poli
tical powers of the executive to impress
his will upon Congress."
To demonstrate that "the bonus bill
will not be disposed of without a fight,"
Mr. Robinson asked unanimous consent
that it be made the order of business
after passage of the tariff bill. Senator
Borah, Idaho, ohjected. Later Senator
Wadsworth. New York, objected to a like
request l> Senator Pittman, Nevada. The
measure has less support now than a year
ago. said Mr. Robinson, and will have
even less support in the future.
Mr. Watson’s resolution outlining pro
cedure on the two measures was blocked
for several bofiira by bickering over its
form and long speeches for and against
the mbonus. Senator Williams, Mississip
pi, denounced the measure for “com
mercializing patriotism.’’

Many Devices to Stop Car
Stealing, Still They Disappear
Until some surer Jaw, appliance, method
or principle against automobile stealing
is devised than exists at present a large
share of the cost of upkeep will go Into
theft Insurance.
That the automobile theft situation Is
even more serious than ever is proven by
the fact that automobile Insurance com
panies hare been assuming only 75 per
cent of the risk incurred.
And jet Inventors have come forth
with many varied devices, more or leS9
effective, that would hinder the motor car
thief. States have been considering, and
some have passed, laws requiring an ab
stract of title with the sale of every new
and used car.
In the busy sections of large cities
mounted police keep watch over parked
cars. And the federal Dyer law has
been directed against Interstate traffic In
stolen automobiles.
WHAT IS WANTED.
What is wanted, however, Is something
that can effectively stop the business of
automobile stealing. Some system also Is
sought that will keep the financially em

cinct committeemen.
Mr. Beveridge will make a short talk
at each gathering.
barrassed automobile owner from *‘sell-
Ing” bis car to the insurance company.
Insurance underwriters have found
that the more popular the automobile the
more liable It is to theft, no matter what
anti-theft device it may have attached.
It is therefore the discovery after theft,
rather than prevention that the thief
seems to fear. For the less popular car
can be more easily recovered.
SOLUTION.
The solution lies In some sure method
of recovering stolen automobiles. Ab
stra<t of title laws are devised with this
in view.
In England every motorist has to dis
play his Individual license, which In
cludes all information about him and his
car, In some conspicuous place. It has
even been suggested that the owner s
photograph accompany the license.
Licensing of garage men and used car
dealers Is another way suggested for con
trolling the exchange of automobiles. But
protests arise from all sources that
might be hit In any way by anti-theft
laws.
And the problem of curbing the auto
thief remains.
CARRY OWN AIR SUPPLY
Motorists will soon be carrying
their own air supply If an Invention
Just being marketed proves success
ful. The device Is a steel container
holding dry carb'on dioxide gas under
pressure. It ih placed over the value
stem, the barrel turned and the gas re
leased Into the tube. Each of these
holds enough gas to inflate a 30x3V4 tir<-
to 95 pounds pressure. It can be refilled.
It Is said the gas Is not harmful to
rubber.

COTTON QUOTATION UP
Special to Indiana Daily Times
and Philadelphia Public Ledger.
BY RICHARD BPILLANE.
PHILADELPHIA, June 21.—Signs point
to a good fall trade. At the same time
It would not be surprising if there
should be a slight Increase In the cost
of living In the coming six months.
The farm has coma lack. Yields of
grains and meats promise to be good.
Prices at primary markets appear very
low, when compared with those of a few
years ago, but they do not furnish a
good Index. Even at present prices the
agriculturist of the West afid Middle
West should have a moderate profit, for
his crops thin year have been planted and
cultivated at the lowest cost of any In
perhaps seven years.
Conditions In the South look more
promising for the man of the soil than
In the North. Cotton at this time last
year sold around 12 cents a pound. Now
it is around 22. Last year there was
a tremendous surplus overhlnging the
market. This year the surplus has been
reduced so much it Is questionable
whether with this year’s yield there will
not be an approximation to n shortage
before the 1923 crop Is harvested. As
with the growers of wheat and corn of
the West and Middle West, the cotton
farmer has been forced to rigid econo
mies this year, and if he markets bis
cotton on the basis of present prices or
higher ho will be in fair shape financi
ally.
Construction Industries are active. The
demand for steel and general commodl
ties Is Insistent. Foreign trade is Im
proving. Despite the coal strike, unem
ployment figures ere not abnormally
high. But for the coal strike and the
threat of a railroad strike the situation
nationally would be satisfactory, all
things considered.—Copyright, 1922, by

OF INDIANA
MERIDIAN STREET AT ELEVENTH*INDLA.NAPOLIS
TO promote the safety first movement,
the Standard Oil Company (Indiana)
has created within its own organiza
tion 24 separate and distinct inquisitorial
bodies to investigate accidents involving
Company motor equipment.
These bodies are called “Safety Courts.”
The primary purpose of these courts is to re
duce the hazard of automobile accidents on
the public highway. This is directly in line
with the policy of the Company to help the
employee to a better understanding of his
obligation to his fellow citizens.
The Court meets weekly and before it must
appear any employee, whether manager or
truck driver, who has been involved in an
accident during the preceding week. The
employee comes into court as defendant with
his immediate superior as his attorney. The
Chairman of the Safety Council is the judge.
Other members of the Council serve as jurors.
When the investigation shows that the em
ployee has been guilty of carelessness in ob
serving traffic laws, penalties are fixed and
punishment assessed by the jury. The punish
ment is often as novel as the plan itself. For
instance, a truck-driver recently convicted of
carelessness was removed from his position
and sentenced to work for two weeks in the
Company warehouse as a common laborer.
The plan is in operation throughout the 11
Middle Western States served by the Standard
Oil Company (Indiana) and has been respon
sible for reducing automobile accidents ap
proximately 50 percent.
The spirit which pervades the “Safety Court”
is to inspire employees with a sense of their
responsibility to the community. As in the
case of the Annuity System, which gives the
employee a feeling of security regarding his
future, and in the case of the Stock Invest
ment Plan to promote the desire to save, the
“Safety Court” has as its object the making
of better and more responsible citizens who
will render continuous and greater service
to society.

The Standard Oil Company (Indiana) is con
tinually studying methods for improved ser
vice through adjusting its organization to the
constantly changing needs of the people of
the Middle West.
