Looking 1o Washington For Re
lief From German Exactions
Efforfs continue to secure relief from
the enormous tax Imposed by Germany
on exports of potash to the United
States In these efforts nil agrlcmV
turnl Interests are deeply concerned
for the rensop that potnsh Is nil essen
tial element of all commercial fertili
Realizing the serlouspess of the bur
den so Imposed President Taft and
the state department have made vigor
ous protest to Germany and the mat
tel is still pending A representative
of the state department who visited
Berlin In an effort to secure redress
from the German government has Just
returned to Washington and further
action by the administration Is ex
pected without great delay
Official efforts to bring about a fa
vorable settlement have from the start
been actively aided by the nonsyndl
cate potash mines which made the
American low price contracts
Did Germany Break Promises
Uis understood that the state de
partment had assurances from the Ger
man government when the t tax law
was first talked of that nothing would
be done which would Impair existing
trade arrangements These assurances
proved to be worthless and after Ger
many had secured the benefits of the
minimum rates of our new tariff law
the potash tax was put Into force
President Taft In his message to con
gress may have had this fact In mind
when he said referring to the success
ful working out of the maximum and
minimum provision There are how
ever unfortunately Instances where
foreign governments deal arbitrarily
with American Interests within their
jurisdiction in a manner injurious and
It was when the German potash syn
dlcnte found that Independent mines
had got almost nil of the American
business by making prices about 30
per cent lower than the syndicate
prices that the law now complained of
by American consumers was demand
ed by the potnsh trust and enacted by
the relchstag with the avowed pur
pose to deprive Americans of the bene
fits of their advantageous agreements
running In some cases until 1010
The amount of the tax Imposed hy
Germany Is moro than the entire cost
at the mines under the American con
tracts with nonsyndlcatc producers and
makes the price on deliveries In the
United States much greater than the
old exorbitant syndicate prices As
the American contracts provide that
the buyer shall pay all government
charges the tax falls heaviest upon the
consumers of potash for the making
of fertilizers
Tax Levied to Raise Prices
The tax law was passed It Is assert
ted with no other purpose than to de
stroy existing contracts to coerce alt
potash mines into the syndicate and
so to bring about a return to high
prices and take away the market made
here by nonsyndlcatc producers
Until this controversy arose It was
not generally known that potash In
workable quantities was found only In
Germany The production is and has
been for twenty years controlled by a
syndicate which also fixes the price
that the world shall pay for this ne
cessity In this syndicate which Is
strictly regulated by law several Ger
man governments participate as own
ers of potash mines It was during a
temporary lapse In the syndicate leav
ing every one free to make his own
figures that the low prices now caus
ing trouble were made
Improved Highways Are Now Passing
Test of All Traffic and Weather
Conditions and Those That
Make Good Will Be Stand
ards of the Future
At the end of the present winter
good roads builders will be able to
form definite opinions as to what shall
be the standard road of the future
Road building up to the present has
been for the most part more or less I
experimental Demonstration as to
just how good some good roads
would prove to bo has been lacking
because improved highways have not
been built long enough to show their
On asphaltlc macadam Is placed the
main reliance of road engineers Such
highways have been proved absolutely
necessary to withstand heavy traffic
and the main question remaining to
bo decided Is tho brat binder to hold
the stone of the macadam together
Some of these binders bleed In sum
mer and then get so brittle that they
lose the road The natural asphalts
such ns are used In street pavements
do not act In this way
Whatever may he next springs vcr
dlft as to what Is the best road the
movement for Improved highways Is
going steadily forward with Increased
energy The latest to enlist In the
good roads cause are the presidents of
the Pennsylvania New York Central
and Southern railroads and Mr Yon
kum of the Frisco who were among
the organizers of the American Asso
elation For Highway Improvement

Observing Boy Had Marked the Head
gear of Distinguished
William M Chase was a pictur
esque figure dressing in clothes that
had a certain artistic originality
though they conformed more or less
to the prevailing fashions says Ar
thur Hoeber A N A in the Wom
ans Home Companion He in
variably wore a high hat with an un
usually flat brim then a novelty in
this city though popular in artistic
circles in Paris Such a hat he has
worn ever since though he is not so
much alone in this fashion as in the
old days
They tell a story of this famous
hat On one occasion Chase on his
way home stepped into a little wine
shop and ordered a jug of claret of a
special brand sent to his house The
lad who brought it came to the front
door an hour afterward when the
artist had already arrived Some
wine he said curtly The maid
knowing there was yet plenty in the
cellar and opining the lad had made
a mistake said she was sure it was
not for that house and did the boy
remember the name of the man who
ordered it The boy didnt Then
said the servant youve come to the
wrong place we never ordered wine
t this moment the boy spied the
famous hat on the hall table Say
he asked does that hat live here
Yes said the amused maid Then
said the boy triumphantly heres
where the wine belongs I II
