' MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD
' Secretary Mellon of the treasury, In
a letter to Representative Fordney,
chairman of tho committee on ways
and means of the houBe of representa
tive, says: "Ordinary expenditures
Ifor the first three quarters of the fis
cal year, 1021, havo been 13,783,771,'
000.74, or at the rate of about $3,000,-.
000,000 for the year. . . According
to the latest estimates of the spending
departments. . . ordinary expend U
turcs during the fiscal year, 1022, In
eluding Interest on tho public debt,
I will bo over $4,000,000,000.
"Tho nation cannot continue to
spend at this shocking rate. As the
President said In his message, tho bur
den Is unbearable, and there are two
avenues of relief, 'One Is resistance
In appropriation and tho other Is the
utmost economy In administration.'"
' It. O. Lefllngwell, formerly an assis
tant secretary of tho treasury, whom
I haS-o quoted previously In these ar
ticles, and who Is still deeply and ac
dvoly Interested In securing retrench
ment In national expenditures, com
menting on this utterance of Sccretnry
Mellon, says: "Why should thero bo
retrenchment In public expenditure?
Why does tho secretory of tho treas
ury speak of current nnd estimated ex
penditures as shocking? What Is tho
evil that we are discussing and what
Is Its effect?
"Government expenditures must be
met from taxes. To tho extent thnt
they are met promptly from taxes and
from honest taxes directly laid upon
I the Incomes of tho people, and In pro-
portion to those Incomes, exaggeration
of the evil of government expenditure
,, H Is nvoldcd. Government expenditure
( takes the money of all tho pooplo for
tho supposed benefit of a portion of
tho people, honestly or dishonestly,
equally or unequally, nvowedly by di
rect taxation, or surreptitiously by tho
Indirect taxation which results from
Inflation of currency nnd credit and
of the public debt.
: , "Government expenditure takes tho
fruits of tho earth and the labor of
tho people nnd diverts them from the
productlvo nnd reproductive enter
prises of men, from tho nnturnl enjoy
ment of tho men, who by their pru
dence, foresight and effort, created the
wealth and mndo It nvnllable, to the
i sometimes benevolent nnd sometimes
- ' belligerent, but almost always cconom-
I Icnlly wasteful, purposes of govern
ment.
"Government exploits all of us for
tho benefit, or supposed benefit, of
some -of us. Yielding to the vague
aspirations of men for n better world
or a better distribution of the good
things of this earth, government Im
poses upon all of us ever-Increasing
burdens In the effort to benefit vocif
erous nnd organized minorities.
"Koch of the executive departments
Is concerned to Improve Its service
and to discover new and useful fields
of service. The entire organization
of tho army, of the navy, of each of
tho departments, Independent olllces
nnd agencies of tho government, Is tie
" ' voted to an Important task. Its par
ticular function seems" of vital use
fulness, even necessity. Experts In
ench aro nllveto Its defects nnd to
tho opportunities for usefulness which
have not been availed of.
-. "The secretary, or other head of
1 tho department, drawn from private
life, perhaps wholly Ignorant at the
outset of the naturo nnd extent of Its
problems, promptly becomes the advo
cate of the policies and demands of
his permunent assistants and burenu
chiefs. If ho does not become such
advocate, he mny break down tho
mornle of his organization nnd possibly
lose the contldlHico of his personnel.
11 "Behind It all Is tho pressuro of or-
i gnnlzed Interests In tho constituencies,
which nre the beneflclnrles of specific
expenditures, operating upon polltl
! ji. clans, executive departments, senators
i ' 0,id congressmen. Tho strident volco
I ,j of greed Is heard In the market place
)' nnd In legislative halls; tho volco of
1 "jp the people Is barely audible.
t Wk "Tho fact that each project Is con-
