The U. S. Senate passed the

veto 57 to 19.
The repeal of the law which now
takes its place among the very few
•which have been passed over a
presidential veto becomes effective
after the clocks are turned back to
Normal in October. It will go
-down in history as one of the very
few measures that have twice been
vetoed by a president and became
a law after all by a vote of more
xthan two thirds in both houses of
•Congress. This shows what the
farmers can^o if they will.

The war just closed called 56,
000,000 men to arms, and cost 26,
000,000 casualties, 11,000,000 men
killed and $221,000,000,000 in
treasure. Throughout four and a
half years of horror, the people
were -told that they were fighting a
war to end war—that with peace
would come a league of nations to
guai-d the world against the repeti
tion of such a catastrophe. In
that hope the people fought the war
through to victory.
The Iowa legislature did an ex
cellent piece of work in chang
ing the law with relation to the li
cense fees of motor vehicles of all
sorts. It is estimated that under
the new law the annual income from
these motor vehicle license fees will
amount to between five and six mil
lion dollars a year.
Under the new law, which will
go into effect January 1, 1920, own
ers of motor vehicles will pay a li
cense fee based on the cost of the
vehicle and its weight. The rate
will be one percent of the original
cost, plus 40 cents for each 100
pounds t'he vehicle weighs. To illus
trate: Taking present prices, the
license fee for a Ford car will be $6
one percent of the price, plus $6
for weight, making a total of $12.
The fee for a Hudson will be $22,
plus $13.20 for weight,''
of $32.50. The fee for
will be $33, plus $*6.40,
$49.40. The fee for a Pierce-Ar
row will be $64, qlus $18.40, a total
of $82.40.

The fees on motor trucks are
graded according to i.he carrying
capacity. A truck of one ton or
less capacity will pay a fee of $15
whether equipped with pneumatic
tires, or solid rubber tires but if
equipped with steel or hard tires
the fee will b6 $40. A truck of five
tons capacity equipped with pneu
matic tires will pay $135 and if
equipped with splid rubber tires will
pay $145. There is a license fee for
trailers also, of $10 for one ton or
1-C3S capacity, running up to $600
for six ton capacity when equipped
with pneumatic tires and $70 when
equipped with solid' rubber tires.
This is a very sensible -change in
the law, distributing the tax bur
den as it does at least somewhat in
proportion to the degree in which
the vehicle wears out -the road.—

To Our Subscribers:—
It is some time since we have sent
out statements of subscription due
but so much is being said about the
high cost of living that we wonder
how much longer we can hold out
contribution. We thought when
the war was over that we would not
be called on to pay such exhorbitant
prices for clothing, groceries, mate
rial and labor and what we could'
save over the then existing prices
we might be able to buy a farm?
We trust that all who are indebt
ed to the Journal will call at the
office or send in a check for which
wet shall be grateful.

that the Audubon County Fair has
