INSIDIOUS HUN PnOPAOANDA IS
SPREAD TO HINDER FOURTH
RUMORED AT MANY PLACES.
Enemy Victory the Only Thing That
Could Take Away American
Federal authorities are calling at-

lias been in circulation for forao weeks
that the Government, or some other
body unnamed, Is to seize all savin"?
banks deposits for war purposes. 01
course this is nothing more nor less
than n pro German lie stated by soma
kalscrlto or some weak-kneed nnd
weak-brained Am.erlcan who might as
well Lave been In the Kaiser's pay
It is difficult to believe that any sane
person In America would believe such
a report for .1 minute. However, It Is
reported nt Washington thnt It Is beinj;
believed by a few easily fooled per
sons. Secretary of the Tieasury Me
Adoo says that the foolishness of these
rumors 13 plain, but In order to set nt
rest the fears of a few who might be
worried he states officially that these ,
rumors are without any basis of fact;
in brief they are plain lies put out tc
hinder the Fouitli Llbeity lxan.
If Germany Should Win.
There is only one thing that will en
danger the bank deposits of America
'There Is only one way in which they
'might be confiscated. That one thing
,1s a German victory. If the Huns
could defeat us and the Trench, Brit
'ish and Italians In Europe and invade
this country, then there is but little
idoubt that savings accounts, stocks,
bonds, jewelry, gold, real estate and
(everything in the way of property
would bo confiscated. '
i The one thing that will take away
(ownership in private property In this
country Is to let the Germans win the,
war, either by actual rce of arms or
through the failure of mericans to
support the war ai they should by buy
ing Liberty Bonds or paying taxes.
It is foolish to fear that our own
Government is going to damage the
(people of this country its own people.
iAVith the American armies fighting aa
'well as they are now on the soil of
IFrance, and the American people from '
icoast to coast supporting the army aa
iney now are ana nave eeen inrougn
our first years of the war, the Ameri-
can savings accounts, money, bonds,
farms and factories are safe.'
Hun Propaganda. '

lives. In the statement received here lic that these savings which are being
from the J. S. Treasury Department tffectcd are of no value to the govern
this statement Is made: n;ent ln ltg prosecution of the war
"The United States instead of con- uniess tney are made available for
fiscating or endangering the savings' its U3e
and other propeity of its people is de-
fending them and theirs with all the1
irresistible might of this invincible He
public." It has not been possible to trace the
rumor relating to the confiscation of
savings accounts to its source, but
from the fac.t that it appeared In wide
ly separated parts of the country at
about the same time it is evident that
some pro German agency had busied it
self with spreading tho story in the
hope that it might hurt the success of
the Fourth Liberty Lorn.

1 When the American people locked
up their automobiles for a gasless Sun- j
,day on Sept. 1 they saved enough
money to provide Gen. Pershing's
army with 5,000 machine guns casting
They saved enough money to buy
food for the American Expeditionary
Forces in Europe for two whole da)s.
They saved enough money to pro
ide Gen. Pershing's army with 2,800,-'

They saved enough money to pay
for 35,784 completely equipped rifles
of the tjpo the American infantryman
carries when he goes into conflict.
A Big Saving. j
These figures were revealed in a
Treasury statement, issued recently,
Tho Fuel Administration reported
that tbe saving of gasoline on the sec
ond gasless Sunday amounted to
6,000,000 gallons, which, valued at 25
cents a gallon, meant a saving to
American pockelbooks of $1,250,000. (
In transportation alone this meant a
saving of 625 tank cars for an average '
haul of 200 miles.
The rubber saved by giving tires a
day's rest would be sufficient to equip
3,500 motor trucks for the American
army with tires capable of running

Financiers studying tho market con
ditions with regard in particular to
Liberty Bond figures find that a great
many of the bond transactions are ini
tiated by jcrsona who do not under

Various issues of bonds.
For instance, small holders have i
been selling their 4 and 4U per cent
bonds In order to buy tho 3 V4 per cent
bonds of the first loan, because the i
I S'jS are completely exempt from tux.
As a matter of fact, for the small In- i
wstor tho 4s and 4Us carry the same '

Hence, tho gieat majority of the

Think of the Many Opportunities for
Investment Which the War
The vast borrowings of the govern
ment made necessary by the war have
startled a good many patriotic but
short-thinking people. Involuntarily
perhaps, they feel that an exacting de
mand is being made on eerybody aud
they grow uneasy and restless.
Private and public expenditures are
being curbed riht and lett so thnt the
government may have more and more
But the money Is staying right hre
in this country. And the great gov
ernment war issues afford excellent
investment opportunities to the busi
ness man. He can loan his capital to
, the government at 4U per cent inter-
1 est, a rate which after the war will
make a security of such safety gilt
edged, and he can get his capital Lack
at a time when its purchasing pover
will bo greatly increased.
Financiers Study Situation.
"No doubt these factors will '. e ap
preciated ln time and the bonds will
ultimately find their proper market
levels," says tho Wall Street Journal.
That financial journal goes on to say
that the under-par prices quoted dur-
' ing the summer on some of the issues
reflect only a temporary condition. It
says further that every effort is being
made and will be made by the Secre
tary of tho Treasury to see that all
legislation which has to do with monev
will work out to the benefit of tho
Financiers who have studied the
loan sales, which have been compara
tively few, report that a large number
of the transactions are started by mlsT
informed holders of small amounts of
bondswbo do not understand the tax
"A great many small Investors In
tbe 4 and 4Vi per cent bonds," says the
Wall Street Journal, "do not seem to
realize that their securities for the'
most part possess the same merits as
the tax free 3 per cent bonds of the
First issue. Tbe 4s nnd Ma are fully
as free from the normal Income tnx" as

Moro than $100,000 worth of crops
were saved for the farmers in three
Oregon counties by a rodent-control
campaign carried on by couutj
agents, in cooperation vl it li tbe Hlo
loglcnl Survey of tlio United States
Department of Agriculture. Fifty
thousand sage rats and more than
0,000 jack rabbits were killed In the
June Campaign in Crook and Des
chutes counties. Ore. Investigation
has shown that each rodent does more
than a dollar's worth of damage to
crops in a season. On this basis the
campaign saved tlio farmers of these
two comities more than $50,000. In
Douglas county u member of the
county court has estimated that the
campaign to control gray diggers hah
been worth more than $50,000 to the

Washington, Sept. 22 Increases
in the cost of food during the past
I year have been greatly over estimated
by laying to much emphasis on
special cases, and announcement to
night by tho food admiustrntioii,
which gave comparative wholesale
costs of the various articles of food
for different periods of 1917 and
1918. Tho actual wholesale cost of
foodstuffs per captla during tho sec
ond quarter of 19 IS April May and
Juno was $25.59, tho statement
said. This was an increase of 3.5 per
cent over tho per captia cost during
the same period tho year before.
No differential between tho whole
sale and retail prices was given, mo
statement dealing entirely with
wholesale costs. A statement tonight
by tho Department of labor, however
said that investigations made over
the country by its division of statis
tics showed that retail prices of food
increased on an average of 2 per cent
from July to August and thnt during
tho year ending last August retail i
prices .advanced 16 per cent.
Tho Food Administration placed
tho total wholesale costs of all food-1
stuffs consumed In tho United States
during tho second quarter of this
year at $2,693,751,871, compared
with $2.fiG3,G0O,9O4 In tho same
period of 1917.
In Its comparative lists of costs tttb
Food Admlnstratlon placed the per
capita cost of broadstuffs during tho
second quarter of 1918 at $3. 32, or
9.3 por cent greater than during the
same period in 1917. Meats, tho larg
est Item, cost per captia $8.91, or 20.
8 per cent greater than In 1917. Dairy
products, which cost per cuptlu $5.88,
woro C.3 por cent greater, and poultry
and eggs, at $2.49 per captia, .cost
10.5 per cent moro.
llalancing these, tho stutcment said
that vegetables por captia cost only
$1.17 during tho quarter, a decrease
of C3.1 por cent, and sugar ut $1.79,
decreased 7.4 por cent. A third do
crcaso was shown by tho smallest
Item ln tho bill of faro, fish, which at
