STRIKE ITS TOASTED Cigarette No cigarette has the same delicious flavor as Lucky Strike. Because Lucky Strike is the toasted cigarette. Kendrick Gazette Ralph B. Knepper, Publisher Entered as second-class matter 1892 at Kendrick, Idaho, under the Act of Congress of March, 1£79. Subscription $1.50 a year. Last year was a bad year for failures, but at that, Bradstreet re ports 84 per cent of the business concerns that failed did not adver tise. When this is compared with the fact that 84 per cent of the firms that did' not fail did advertise the moral is rounded out complete and clear. Look the conutry over, anvwhere you wish to go, and you will not find better town, same size, than Kendrick. Anyone in the Potlatch who lives tributary to Kendrick ought to boost the town in every way possible becasue in so doing he is unquestionably promoting his own best interests. It's the short sighted man who knocks his home town. In order to stimulate our finances a little we have a notion to threaten to publish the name of a subscriber seen taking a drink of moonshine some time ago, unless he comes in at once and pays his subscription. We'll say our bank account would grow by leaps and bounds. It is as certain as the sun that a 7-hour day would be followed by a demand for 6-hours day and that by a demand for 5-hour dav. 8 'hours to work, 8 hours to sleep, 8 flours to do what we will is a shib boleth to which we subscribed. The average fellow who doesn't want to work 8 hours is sure some one owes him a living; he doesn't want to work at all.—Ex. Pullman, Palouse and Kendrick are to have big celebrations on July 4. Moscow and Troy will not cele brate. Troy citizens will join with Kendrick in celebrating the nation's birthday and many Moscowjcitizens plan to go to Pullman, where Presdent Upham speaks, the Elks' band furnishes the music and the Moscow ball team plays ball. Others will go to Palouse. But we must not forget Kendrick, an Idaho and a Latah county town. Kendrick is our near neighbor, pays taxes to help keep up our county and state I j I | J !

Kendrick has more claims upon Moscow than has either of the other towns mentioned, it would be a rank injustice if none of the people of Moscow go to Kendrick on Julv 4, and show the citizens of Kendrick that we appre ciate their efforts to have a big cele bration and we appreciate ' their fiiendship and help. Moscow must send some of her citizens to Kend rick on July 4.- Star-Mirror. The Par Collections Ramsay Walker, vice-president of I the Wallace Bank & Trust Company, and well known throughout the Pot j latch country and Kendrick, which I was formerly his home, writes to M. V. Thomas here concerning a re cent ruing of the U. 8. supreme court in the matter of the Par Collections. He says that he be lieves evervone should be posted on this question as it is of great im portance. He submitted the fol lowing article for publication in the Gazette, which will no doubt prove of interest to the general public; That the federal reserve banks cannot force non-member banks to perform a valuable service without compensation; That the federal reserve banks have no power to use what is term ed "lawful methods" for unlawful purposes; That congress did not intend to legislate against non-member banks; That federal reserve banks have no right to use the power of the government to force non-member banks to join the federal reserve system; and That when the federal reserve banks use oppressive methods and unlawful procedure in attempts to compel non-member banks to join the federal reserve system or be ruined, the non-member banks may appeal.to the courts for protection. These are a number of the main points of the decision of the United States supreme court in the case of the American Bank & Trust com pany and others, appellants against the Federal Reserve bank of Atlan ta, Georgia and others,reversing the United States circuit court of ap peals for the fifth circuit. Justice Holmes delivered the opinion of the court. Copies of the decision have been received here. This is by tar the most sweeping decision handed down recently in bank litigation and sustains the con tention of the non-member banks that the federal reserve system was not created for the purpose of per mitting it to be used as a club to compel those banks that remain outside to perform a valuable ser vice for the federal; reserve banks without compensation. In short, the edict of the federal reserve banks was that the non-member banks must accept the dictates of the federal reserve banks or be driven out of business. Jn order to compel obedience to its mandates the federal reserve banks adopted methods that thev contended were "lawful" but which the state banks insisted were "un lawful." In this the non-member banks have been sustained bv the supreme court of the United States. The court makes plain that the United States did not intend by the statute of sanction illegitimate warefare upon the legitimate cre ations of the states, but more im | portant than all, by their decision J the court reestablishes tnat prin ! ciple so fundamental to our Amer icanism that the power of the government shall not be used by one class of citiaens to their ad vantage and gain at the expense of another class and in concluding says: "tf this were a case of compet ition in private business, it would be hard to admit the justification of self interest considering the now current opinion as to public policy expressed in statutes and decisions. But this is not a private business. The policy of the federal reserve banks is governed by the policy of the United States with regard to them and to these relatively feeble competitors. We do not need aid from the debates upon the statute under which the reserve banks exist to assume that the United States did not intend by that-statute to sanction this sort of warfare upon legitimate creations of the states. Decree reversed." METHODIST CHl'KCH. Howard W. Mort, Pastor. * _ You are coming in to spend the day, the Fourth.
