The money wa to have lx-en spent by the roads in buying equipment andjiiight have. given business as a whole a general stimulus this fall. Congress, however, influenced by the agricultural group which wants a reduction in ireight rates before helping the railroads was un able to get the legislation through. Of course the house passed the oiii aim cleaned up its slate nicely but in the sen-. nte the chances of a filibuster against the railroad bill made it seem wiser to pistHne consideration of it until after the recess. The real stumbling block, however. has been the so-called anti-beer bill.

'Senate to Begin Tax Bill. Of course the purpose of the recess is', to enable the senate finance committee to hold hearings and write a tax bill. The I argument Was wisely mad" that unless: the senate recessed and gave uicmlers ' f the senate finance committee a chance to work uninterruptedly on the tax bill there wouldn't be any new revenue lawi and the old one would have to be reen- aeted.

As a eonseuuence there is' In northern New Lngland there lias an admission now that much more irog ress would have been made if the tax bill bad been given right of way in the hoiHe and if President Harding hud in sisted upon such priority. Congress is glad of xa chance, however, to leave the writing of the tax bill to the senate fi nance committee and get away on a brief vacation. The month's rest will be a good investment for the country because it will give members a chance to bear from-.tlje folks buck home and oartieu- larlv of the impatience of the people fori faie deductions. It will assist ,in putting individual senators in a better humor. There has rarely been a time when so much bitterness and personal feeling was evident cloakrooms. It is not confined to one party but is an evidence of what happens when one individual or group gets behind jM-t pieces of legislation and resents the obstructiveness of another individual or group. The senate hasn't lieen the happiest family these midsum mer days and a breath of outside air away from the national capital may bring the solons back here in much bet ter spirits and with more of an idea of the demands of public opinion. The re cess superficially looks like delay. Ulti mately it means substantial progress. PAN AM. V WILL NOT FIC.IIT. Porto Rico to Occupy Disputed Tcrritory Without Contest. PANAMA.

War construction created relatively little demand for stone as compared t;i that for brick, concrete and steel, owing to the embargo on public building projects and the general inactivity in the building field, which has materially affected Vermont through its chief industry.
