Washington, July 31.—Charges of gross discrimination by the Democratic Congress against certain munitions man nfacturers have been laid before the committee on finance of the United States Senate by Andrew C. Gray, of Wilmington, Delaware. Mr. Gray, form erly attorney general of Delaware, and twenty other men from Wilmington, representing the chamber of commerce of that city, spoke for the manufactur ers of gunpowder and explosives located in Delaware and New Jersey. The pro posed bill, whose idea is to make up the loss in tariff revenue, due to tariff tink ering, is regarded as another example of bungled legislation. The charge brought before the com mittee was that, out of more than thréc billion dollars' worth of "material and provisions used in war," exported from this country direct to the war zone, the war revenue bill proposes to tax only three classes of munttions: 1, copper; 2, guns, shells, loaded ammunition, etc.; 3, gunpowder or other explosives. À formal statement giving the ma terial and provisions used in war and • sent from this country direct to the war zone, which go Scot free of tax under the bill, has been filed with the committee. This includes "canned meats, army rations of various kinds, shoes, stockings, harness, saddles, blan kets, kerosene, gasolene, acids, alcohol, locomotives, parts of submarines, range finders, stamped metal, military equip ment, swords, bayonets, bromine and other military gases, barbed wire and other products of iron and steel, horses to the value of- $128,872,000 and mules to the value of $31,186,000." None of these will be taxed by the new bill. Mid-Year Model 257 Cars in One SIX $1325 f. o. b.

DRAWING THE LONG BOW Parents of young men who are serv ing in the National Gaurd regiments on the border are much concerned over some lurid tales of supposed hardships v/liich have been told and written by certain sensational newspaper corres pondents and disgruntled soldiers. That the relatives and friends of the men at the front should be guilty of sending out such ridiculous reports to worry and alarm the people "back home" is inconceivable. Yet it is a fact. One story that is being spread is to the effect that the men are half starved. Let us dissect this story. The government issues a stated ration to each man each day. Here is one day 's allowance per man: 1 1-4 pounds of fresh meat. 1 pound and 2 ounces of fresh bread, or its equivalent in flour. One-eighth of an ounce of baking powder. 2 4-10 ounces of navy beans, or rice, or hominy. 1 1-4 pounds of potatoes; or part po tatoes, part onions, part tomatoes, or other fresh vegetables. 1 28-100 ounces of prunes, or dried apples, or peaches, or jam. 1 12-100 ounces of coffee, or tea. 3 2-10 ounces gf sugar. 1-2 ounce of evaporatecl milk. 16-100 of a gill of vinegar, or picklea. 64-100 of an ounce of salt. 4- 100 ounce of pepper. 64-100 ounce of lard. 5- 10 ounce of butter. In addition they get syrup, flavoring extracts and spices, ice for preserving perishable goods, coal and wood for cooking purposes. A splendid field range is furnished each company for cooking, and every facility is provided for their needs and welfare. The soldiers of the regular army are receiving exactly the same allowance as the soldiers of the National Guard, yet never a murmur is heard from the regulars. It is but just, however, to the great mass of National Guard troops to state that the kicking generally comes from a class of men who are never satisfied, no matter how much they receive. If there are any parents and friends of soldiers in this vicinity they should not be alarmed. The government sup plies all the men require in food, the surgeons are doing their utmost in sani tary measures, and the authorities are straining every nerve to preserve the health and morals of the troops. Sensational newspaper reports and letters coming in from the border should be read with unlimited reserve and salt should be sprinkled on every line. It may be that beauty is now only skin deep, but the well turned ankle catches the public eye. A Chicago commission is to make a study of the city's defectives. They will be lenient, however, with the city council. Just the Thing For Diarrhoea '•About two years ago I had a severe attack of diarrhoea which lasted over a week," writes W. C. Jones, Buford, N.

UTAH SUGAR FACTORIES GALORE It seems that there is no limit to the increasing number of sugar factories that are contemplated in this and other parts of Idaho, and it appears that any> nnmniiinifv nan mir nu n front oiThor nr community can get one from either of the two companies of sugar manufac turers simply for asking for one. Thomas R. Cutler, general manager of the Utah-Idaho Sugar Company, is credited with the following statement: "We can pay the farmers a rate of $5.50 a ton, flat, delivered in the yards at the shipping points. Originally our price was $4.50, but this has gradually been increased. The ideal method would be to base the price of beets „„ the, price of sugar, but so far this has not pnee ot sugar, been possible. "Even if the war continues, I look to see sugar competition keen. If 10 new factories were opened each year in the United States they could not keep up with the increased consumption. If we were sure the present high price would obtain, we could pay a higher price for beets, but we are afraid of it.
