In days past we all heard of oleo

German Nation In Good Finan
cial Oondition To Pay Losses
To Be Imposed By Allied
By agreeing to impose a sufficient
indemnity upon Germany, the Allies
have undertaken to leave to effici
ency experts the exact amount of
money and the quantity of goods the
German people must pay for having
caused the war.
ihe principle under which the in
demnity commission will operate,
will be to take every penny the Ger
mans can pay, while at the same
time not impoverish Germany in a
manner to reduce the people's pro
ductive capacity. It will never be
possible for the Germans to remune
rate the democratic nations for the
larger part of the losses caused by
the war. But, whatever the German
people can do toward lightening the
burden of the rest of the world is
now certain to be exacted.
In many respects the German peo
ple are in better financial position to
carry on huge war debts than are
other European nations. They have
contracted no financial obligations
abroad during the war, and their
own tax rate in peace times was low.
Thus, a large part of the taxes in
Prussia were met by the earnings of
the Prussian state railways.
It the principle ot no indemnity
were to be accepted by the Allies,
Germany would be in a stronger fi
nancial position after the signing of
peace than most of the Allies them
selves. This means a quicker re
covery by Germany in many ways
than by her victorious enemies, who
have saved the world from medieval
Such a result would unquestionably
be a serious menance to future peace.
The German spirit of revenge would
be encourged by Germany’s compara
ative financial power. It would,
therefore, be necessary to curb Ger
many financially as a matter of self
protection , quite apart from the de
mand of the overtaxed democracies,
that the German people be forced to
come to their Allies relief.
The German government under
stands this perfectly. It is one of
Germany’s own rules of war. The
Germans will pay ruefully but they
cannot feel an injustice has been done
them. It is their own law, though
administered less harshly than they
themselves would have forced it.
Elko Free Press: Homer Andre,
who has been in town for a number
days and who left Monday for his
ranch near Whiterock, says that his
entire family, himself included, had
the flu and that they cured them
selves with sagebrush tea. This is
an old Indian remedy and they found
it very efficacious in breaking up the
fever in a very few hours. The tea
is made by taking the twigs of the
common sagebrush and boiling it for
several hours and drinking it un
diluted in large quantities.

900,000 Hop
Sold in November
The Internatidnal Live Stock As
sociation says producers received
more than $37,000,000 for hogs sold
in the Chicago market last month.
This estimate is based on the arrival
of 900,000 hogs at the local stock
yards, the minimum market price of
which was fixed by the Government
at $17.50 per hundred pounds.
Livestock expertrdeclarethefarm
mers are now receiving more than
twice as much for their hogs as be
fore the war and the shipments are
from 10 tj 15 per cent above normal.
The price of cattle and sheep also
have increased enormously compared
with pre-war figures.
These estimates are based on a
seven-hour live-stock buying day at
the Chicago Union Stockyards and a
six-day week.
