' CARNFR >R <ONGRESS
The Brownsville Herald takes pride
today in prcsenitng to its readers the
latest likeness of Hon. John N. Garner,
representative in congress from this
district for the past twenty-one years,
who is its choice for the same high of
fice in the coming election. A look at
the picture of Mr. Garner, published
elsewhere in this is^uc. shows him to
he somewhat older than when he first
was sent to Congress to represent this
district. But the face shows, if any
thing, greater strength anti character.
It reflects the keen intelligence that
has made Mr. Garner one of the fore
most stah '■men of the nation, and a
power in the greatest legislative body
«>f the world.
As lender «t the minority pari),
holds one of the most responsive PH*
gitions in congress, on the ways and
means committee, «>f which he was
chairman for years when the democrat
ic party was in power. His knowledge
of the important business which falls
to this committee makes him easily
one of the foremost men in congress.
Mr. darner was the author of the
•lemoernite income tax schedule which
was chiefly instrumental in breaking
down the morale of the forces in the
House that were fighting for the fifty
per cent reduction in the surtaxes on
the big incomes. and. although his
amendment to the tax bill was replaced
by that of Representative Longwortli,
republican, the schedules in the Long
worth amendment were much nearer to
those proposed by darner than to Sec
retary M# lion’s figures. True, the Mel
lon schedule has been restored in the
senate committee, but it is considered
«iuitc possible that the darner or the
I.ongworth schedule will replace it be
fore final passage of the bill.
While we believe that the darner
schedule is the fairest and wisest pro
posed, it is not our purpose to discuss
the tax measure here, hut merely to
bring out the way in which our repre
sentative has made his mark in con
nection with this great piece of legis
lation. In the Saturday Kvening I’ost
of March 8, there appeared an inter
view with Mr. darner. in which he
gave a very aide explanation of his
stand, and which gave him nation-wide
prominence ns a student of finance and
n talented law-maker
John N. Garner is a man of whom
his constituents may well be proud.
There is no make-believe about him,
nothing pompous or ostentatious. He
is democratic in the truest sense of
the word. He has never made any ef
fort to shine as one of these flowery
orators, but his speeches are keen, in
cisive. and directly to the point. When
darner speaks the nation listens. He
is recognized as a power in the na
tional halls of legislation. He reflects
great credit on his district and state.
The Herald feels sure that the dis
trict will Return him triumphantly ns
its represcfctative once more. It would
be a very qrriat mistake to replace him
with some untried and inexperienced
member, who would require years to
attain anything near the eminence
which Congressman Garner holds to
day throughout the entire nation.
GOOD WAY TO ENCOURAGE
New York state is considering the
enactment of a law which would ex
empt from taxation until lib ,2 any
dwelling the construction of which is
begun befor** April, 1925. The object
is to encourage the erection of dwell
ings, in order to relieve the great need
for proper housing throughout tin*
state, and particularly in the larger
cities. Ever since the war. there has
been a deficiency in ilwi dings in New
York, owing to the .suspensions of
building during the war and subsequent
enormous increase in the cost of con
struction, which, has retarded building
to great extent.
The proposed law relieving new
dwellings from state taxes for six years
it is believed will encourage* building
on a scale* sufficiently extensive* to re
lieve the situation. It would not he a
bad idea for other states to adopt a
similar method of encouraging ne»vv
construction wherever needed. The*
cost of construction, with the* aeide*e| tax
burden which be-gins the* moment the*
house is built eloubtless has retarded
the erection of new buildings in many
places. The tax exemption would act
as a kinel of bonus to stimulate build
ing. The* result woulel he be neficinl in
more ways than one, for with a renew
ed e*ra eif construction of dwellings, the
building traeles would receive elirect
benefit, while* all interests would pro
fit by the* greater activity and new
money put into circulation.
A FINE HOTEL IMPROVEMENT
It is a pleasure to present to Herald
rentiers in this issue the cut picturing
the substantial addition that is being
built to the Travelers Hotel in this
rity. With this completed. Browns
ville will have a hotel of which it may
well he proud. The new addition will
give this hotel one hundred rooms. It
will he modern and well equipped. It
will he a very handsome building, ami
add much to the attractions of Browns
ville. besides furnishing first class ac
commodations for visitors to the city.
The lady who i« building this new hotel
in Brownsville deserves great credit
for her business judgment and enter
prise. The improvement which she is
providing will always fill an import
ant place in the entertainment of visit
ors here. The construction of the
large tourist hotel which so many of
our leading citizens realize is needed
to make Brownsville the tourist resort
it is designed hy its location and many
natural advantages to he undoubtedly
will start an era of growth and expan
sion here. This will keep all of our
hotels filled with commercial travel< r ,
as well as pleasure seekers. Many
towns smaller than Brownsville boast
of several large hotels, which must l»e
a success, or capital would not con
tinue to seek investment in such en
