Basing hlx deductions upon the fart Ifht the first congressional district is composed of a type of voters more "C ess individitallv alert to the functions ?>f governmental operation. Congress man Rosenblootn said: t "Ptversifi?d industry, peculiar to the first congressional district of West Vir ginia. lias resulted in causing the voters vf this district to be more thoroughly cognisant of the ben fits front con- | structive legislation, and to be more I vlgilent and observant of the activities j sections of the country where the wel I I of their representatives, than in other fare of the people is almost entirely Ue I pendent on one phase of industry. "In i this district tiie people are equally in- | terest.-d in agriculture. manufacturing, i mining and transportation. while in a: vast majority of the congressional dis-l Itricts of the I'nited States the people are interested only in the one of these ' means of livlihond in which they are j I \ italiy concerned. I "In view of tlic familiarity with the) j record of tiie Republican adminis'.ta-] I tion. the voters will not he swayed hy I I talim ions arguments or hursts of Dent-I ? ?cratic propaganda, nor .v111 tlie.v listen j I to nialiguun criticism l?y the minority: ; party, who do not offer constructive: ? plans for improvement."

"Tt is the unbiased opinion of the j citizens that remarkable progress has I been made in readjustlug oonditlone | resulting from the unbusinesslike I lent* , ocratic administration, and that It would j not be wise to return the reins of gov : eri.ment to tho-Democrat lc party which caused such a Condition." said f'onpress : tnan Rosonblodm. i "l? ijertniniy was deplomhhj" ho eotl!

In my opinion, was ; the first notable accomplishment of the , Republican Administration. t inier its j provisions. Immigration is limited to I three per cent of the various nationals 1 In this country as indicated by the | census of 1010. The bill was vital be- j cause of the threatened stampede of I aliens to this country, to escape the ' pitiable conditions created by the war | in their own countries. Vet. wo had j our own problem of unemployment at ' that time, and the army of unemploy- ] ed would have been much greater, and j tho Incident conditions greatly ag- ? rravated. had not the Republican Con gross taken effective steps to prohibit j unrestricted Immigration. Immigration Bii-i. "T now believe. after so vera 1 year.- j experience with the Johnson Immlgra- ' tlon Law. and w ith the jnflux of aliens j temporarily checked, that the time Is j appropriate for consideration by the ; Con cress of Tl R htfT. which 1 ittiro- < duced. providing for the registration of aliens at the port of entry of their in- , tention to become.citizens of the t'nitrd j States, and providing that if a man dors not take out his first papers of natural ization within six months after the ex- . | periatlon of two years reisdence in this : country, that he be deported, further; should he not complete his nnturaliza- i i tion within six months after five years 1 residence In this country, that he be de- , | ported. It is the purpose of my bill to , j consider the five years lnt which the j I naturalization of the alien may mature. | j as a probationary period, and should he be convicted of a felony at any time 1 during the probationary period, that In addition to the sentence of the trial j court, he b? deported. I have been re-1 cetvlng splendid co-operation In my ef- j fort to secure the passage of this bill from patriotic fraternal organizations J throughout the District, and am hoping for earljr consideration of the bill. The Tariff. "Coincident with the prohibition of i Immigration of foreign labor, it w..s | necessary for the Republican congress to stop the dumping of foreign com- i tnereial wares In the American mar ket. to insuro to the American work- I tngmun his home market for goods of his own manufacture or production. I After the armistice, America was the only nation of consequence wlio could I buy and pay for commodities. All the j world, except America, was looking for | a market capable of paying for what ; It bought. The quotations of foreign | producers were so extremely low that j they threatened the destruction of; I American industries, and just prior to . the passage of the emergency tariff act these quotations had demoralized American trade. Kuropcuu manufac turers wet? able to underbid similar ? American manufacturers because ef j their . lower wage costs and subsidies . granted certain Industries by foreign j countries. The prompt passage of the emergency tariff net, and the subsc- ; qnent passage of the Kordney tariff law have already redeemed the Amerl- I can market to the American producer, , insuring continued employment of the ; American working tnan. Farm products. J for the first time in tariff legislation, j have received their due share of atlen- ; lion. A tariff law embracing adequate I protection policy is vital to the pros- J perity of the first congressional flip- j trb-t. In the Fordney tariff law I be- i llcve wo have such a law, as nearly j perfect as it can "be made. Aid to runnera. "The farmers of the entire country i were hard lilt during tho past several | years by unfavorable bunlnesa cotitll- j tli?ns. They needed n groat amount ol | I'tnanees to raise their crops and live- ? stock. Tho banks were willing to ad- t vuuce the necessary money, but <>n . terms which were almost prohibitive,; they wanted seven per cent Interest. This condition the government met bv authorizing the war flnnneo corpora- i tlon to make loans to farmers, farm or- . ganlzntlons and hanks In farming com munities at u reasonable rata of In- i teroat, "*Heenuse of Its tremendous aid' In I assisting the agricultural and livestock! Interosts, the Fongresa on Juno to, 1922, | extended Its life from July 1, 1922, to May .11. 192.'!. Slnco the amended War j Finance corporation began to function, ; August 21. 1931, It had. up to and In-i eluding August 15. 1922. made ngrlcul-] tural and livestock loans In the aggre gate amount of $346.923,$20 or an aver-1 age of $t.0bd.nna every day. Including Sundays Tills amount was divided as' follows: To banking and financing Instl.J tutlons. $195,592,769; to livestock loan] companies, $59,693,669; to cooperative, marketing associations, $9*1.637.450. "The above amount does pot Include $72,250,000 which the War Finance cor poration has tentatively approved for financing 'he marketing of this year's crops. The tentative approval will be. I eome effective when the crops are ready I In be marketed. These tentative ap 1 ppovals are but the forerunner of the] loaning of many more millions fur band ling the l!?22 crops. ! "The experience of the past 19 month" | and the success of the War Finance cor- j porution In financing both Hie grain i growers and the livestock Interests hn\e' demonstrated the wisdom and the ne cessity of legislation establishing a per j nianent system of agricultural credits i | To that end. several agricultural credit I hills have pi-en introduced In this ron irreag, The basic principle of these bill"' Is the establishment of a f?rm credits department In connection with Federal Reserve hanks, or the Federal Farm I t.oan hoard. There la no doubt as to the enactment or some agricultural credits ?ict that will give tln.auclal stability to I oil agricultural Interests, so that no 1 < I ?uch disaster as these latsreets fttosd a year ago can ever menace them afatn. Foreign Sehts. "Although recently at a convention In i New York, a banker of national rcputa I tlon was greeted with considerable en | thualasm when he advooatcd the cancel I latlon of foreign Indebtedness. I do not find this enthusiasm reflected by tho voters of the First district who bought Liberty bonds to finance the war and furnished the money which tho Demo crats l?aned to foreign governments. Altogether our former allies are Indebt ed to us over twelve thousand million dollars, and all of them huvo more or less materlalv profited from the war, In reparations, annexations of German territories, and In other ways, and al though the loans were made by the J Pomocratic party in a great many eases wilh absolutely no evidence of indebted 1 nvnn. I still believe these countries are I i Indebted to us In the same way that any honest man Is Indebted to his creditors. J and 1 am unalterably opposed to can cellation. The money for the loans wus I tho money of the American citisens. ) ? loaned to his government for the joone-I ! I'litlon of the war. and for which he ac I c-pted securities in the form of Liberty I buds. As prvlously stated a great many I holders of there bonds were compelled i lo sell then) below par, thereby Incur ! ring a loss. If we were to agree to can I eel the foreign Indebtedness, this rante ' I American who patriotically came to tne j | rescue of his country during the war, [would find himself encumbered with the (entire obligation incurred by foreign | I governments 'n w hose welfare he is no i j more than ordinarily :t t crested, an 1 he] would he compelled to pay, in the form ] ' of taxes, sufficient money to retire (Jm '? ! Liberty bond issues, ami other seruil- I | ties of national indebtedness, which should lo- -v? Ir*,< on receipt of Interest j ! and principal of tl.e loans made to lltiro- I ! i can countries. j tower Taxes. I 'Although we inherited from the Dem- ! ocratlc administration a national debt j | of twenty-three billions of dollars, as ! in result of the war. and expensive Dem- ] ocratlc mismanagement. If has been pus- ] >ible to arrange tax reductions that no ] oife was (formed dar'd dream of two I ? yours ago. All the transportation tax'cs 1 meaning taxes on freight asid pnssenger ] rates were repealed, amounting to three j hundred and fifty million dollnrs a ' year. The excess profits tax. the nul- I stun t taxes and tin r< handise tHXes gen, t orally were repealed. The ordinary In com* taxes were reduced by lneriAtdn* the exmptlons for the average man, ' meaning the man with a wife and chll- J dren, from 12.000 to $2,500 and from ? $200 to $400 for each child or other de- ? pendent, no that theavernge man pays I no Income tax at all unless he has an ? Income In excess of $3,700 a year. "This reduction in taxes was made J possible by curtailment of expenses In ( government operations. For the year ; ending Juno 80, lastthe ordinary ex- ; ipendltureH of tho jrovarnment ftvwre : $3,372,000,010 as against expenditures ; of $5,11600o000 the year before. Outstanding1 Accomplishments. "Tlie outstanding accomplishments of ' the Republican administration was the 1 complete success of the Washington Disarmament conference, when a ten ycur naval holiday was agreed on by all of the principal powers ofthc world. The agreements Jointly entered Into at that conference will save to tho Amer ican tax-paryers billions of dollars which would otherwise have been spent j In the race for naval supremacy. "The officers and enlisted personnel of both army and navy have been re duced to ibe lowest possible numhor consistent with our national security, resulting In further saving of money, and a consequent lessening of the bur den of taxation. j "Among ..thcr Important legislation, the Republican congress, in its seven teen months tenancy of office, has enact ed such bills aa the Shcppard-Towner ?Maternity Hill, the bill restoring eltiaen sblp rights to women married aliens, the l>yer anti-lynchitig hill, and Altogether has redeemed the platform pledges made to the American people In the last cam- 1 palgn." J Aga'nst Pollution When questioned regarding the bill Which lie had introduced into t'ongress to prohibit the pollution of navigable streams. Congressman Itnsenbloom said: "The people of the Ohio Valley are par ticularly effected by the dlsagrccab'e conditions which arise when industries are permitted to make sewers of navig able streams by throwing into them acid-forming materials which contam inate the water and do untold Injury to the health of persons residing In tho Ohio Valley. The acid water destroys machinery, ami corrodes an ddeterlor utc- plumbing in homes anil buildings. It was estimated by the Engineers De partment iff the United States Army. who were cooperating with aa organisa tion of LPttftburgh manufacturers, that tho loss In damaged machinery alone In the Pittsburgh District is ten mll-j lions of dollars annually due to the pol-; lutlon of the Ohio and tributary rivers, j Tho steel structural parts of the gov- j eminent darns are being damaged by i the acids In the water, resulting In hin drance to navigation. It has already! been necessary to make many replace-1 ments of parts, due to tho corrosive ef fect of the water charged with acid. No estlmuto can bo placed on the value of the tlsh which are destroyed, nor can It bo estimated how much clothing he-' ing washed in the water arc damaged J People of this valley have annual ex-} porlenco with wholesale destruction of! rish, unable to combat the acid dumped) into the river. I have received many' endorsements of the hill which I Intro duced. and am pleased to acknowledge the cooperation of the local Chamber of Commerce, and ?b well civic and fra ternal organizations all along tho Ohio River," ! Congressman Roscnbloom stated fur ther that he hoped for favorable con sideration of his bill early In the next i session of Congress. Congressman ltosenbloom will leave Wheeling early this coming week for! an intensive canvass of every county ' In the district.. j I , FARM BLOC LEADER : COMMENDS PRESIDENT I 1 Wauslon.

Ho also has en dorsed the other measures favored by the bloc, and not yet enacted by con gress. "The bloc has many Important things to accomplish.
