Surveyor--Samuel G. Ratekin. Currency Bill The currency bill which has been introduced in both houses of con gress is being discussed in every town and hamlet in the land. The thing that puzzles so many is that the bill deals with our greatest problem in such a simple and effec tive way. While it takes the pow er of controlling our finances abso lutely out of the hands or even the influence of Wall St., it neverthe less will prove a great blessing to our banks and, through them, to all legitimate business enterprises, and it will place the banks more com pletely under control of the gov ernment than they have ever been. The two main points of the curren cy bill are, therefore, absolute gov ernment control of the money of the country and the automatic ex pansion or increase of money accor ding to the requirements of busi ness. The Tariff Bill Washington, D. C., July 28, 1913.-The tariff bill is now before the senate for debate. It is be lieved that this bill will be debated by the senate until Augus t 15th. The President is very certain that it will pass by a substantial majori ty. The democrats have 5 members in the senate, but it is very likely that one or both of the Louisiana senators will prove traitors and vote against the bill, so that 49 democrats will be left to pass it. There is some doubt about Schaff roth of Colorado and Newlands of Nevada. If these two should go so far as to vote against the bill, it is very certain that Poindexter of Washington, "progressive," will vote with the democrats, thereby making the votes stand 48 for, and 48 against, the bill, causing a tie. In that event, vice president Mar shall will give the deciding vote and pass the bill. It is quite likely that one or more other progressive votes will be re corded in favor of the bill, viz., by senators LaFollette of Wise., Bris tow of Kans., Cummins of Iowa, and Knapp of Minn. These sena. tors left the republican party on ac count of the Payne-Aldrich bill, and if they should vote against the democratic measure, which is a great improvement on the present tariff, they would then be voting for the existing bill against which they so bitterly fought four years ago, when Aldrich, Cannon &Co. were putting staun:-pat measures through congress with a high hand. These progressive senators will have to confess that they are un mitigated demagogues, and that they are hypocrites and sham pa triots if they vote agi.st this bill. President Wilson is receiving the most stalwart support from the public that any president has re ceived in fifty years, and any dem ocrat or patriot who cannot ap prove the leadership of the presi dent should certainly have his san ity, patriotism, or intelligence ex amined by an expert because he is evidently wrong in one or more of these points. Old Hickory Chips Despite denials, there's an idea that some of Mr. Roosivelt's friends don't like the outlook. That currency bill is alright, even if it has incurred the support of Andrew Carnegie. Possib'y the Mexicans know what they are trying to do as well as any body else, because nobody knows. With $2,800,000 to expend on good roads within the next two years, Illinois begins to get rid of that backwoods feeling. "Sing Sing is a disgrace to New York," shrieks an exchange of that city, but then so, too, are a lot of its guests. The wolves keep the bulls and bears on the jump in the Wall St. jungle. A Georgia boy has been paroled after serving two years for stealing a bottle of pop. It is under§good, however, that this dangerons crim inal will be watched closely. Some people take themselves so seriously that others look on them as a joke. There is always plenty of room at the top because many who get there become-dizzy and fall off. The ball player who makes a timely hit is greater than Napole on at St. Helena. Until Dave Lamar came along we all thought Dr. Cook was some liar. Where's the man who complain ed that the Senators couldn't find any lobbyists? Is it not about time for the col leges to confer some more degregs on Col. Roosevelt? As we understand it, the demo cratic party does not propose to raise all incomes to $3,ooo, but to tax all over that amount. It is indeed a wet day when the British suffragists don't burn some thing. Col. Roosevelt has secured per mission to carry a pistol. This is the first time we believe that he ever asked permission to do anything. There is a growing suspicion that Congress will make a lavish appropriation this year for a com modious annex to the Ananias club. It is fine to receive a vindication, of course, but it is a whole 1pt bet ter never to need one. By holding ice to its bulb, you can make the thermometer a pleas ant companion. "Save me from my friends" should have been the cry of ex-king Manuel when the duchess Carl The odore of Bavaria recently fitted out a ship with arms, ammunition, etc. to help him in regaining the crown of Portugal. If Manuel realizes when he is well off he will stay rgiht where he is and say "noth ing doing!" This is the hot season of the year, when the house-fly is the thing most in evidence. We be lieve it was John Ruskin who de scribed the fly as the "queen of the air." From our own experience we should call her the queen of the rubbish heap! MORE money is saved by depositing it in a good, safe, strong, reliable BANK at 4 per cent interest, than there is by investing it in some get-rich-quick scheme. A promoter comes along wilh a good line of TALK and picks up your hard earnings which is likely to be the last time you will see them, then BY the time you have gathered a little more of the worldly goods unto yourself you have learned cau tion, carefulness, business ingenuity, financial fore sight, and many of the things that go to make up the successful business man, and instead of buying an automobile for the next promoter that comes along you deposit your earnings in the First National Bank Libby, Montana The Libby Opera House has in stalled four new electric fans.
