FARMER "BLOC" 6AINS POINT Most of the Republican Conferees Op pose the Smoot Bill—Democrats Are More Hopeful of Getting Amendments Through. Washington, Oct. 8.—The senate "ag ricultural bloc" has forced its tax pro gram upon the Republican majority. A program decided upon at a con ference in the home of Senator Capper was laid before the President by Sen ator Lodge and later accepted by a group of leaders, including Lodge, Pen rose, Watson, Curtis, Lenrooi and Mc Cormick, as a substitute for the pend ing bill. The features agreed on are: 1.—Retention of the higher Income surtaxes from 5 per cent downward, which, with the 8 per cent normal In come tax, would impose a minimum of 58 per cent on 'large incomes. 2.—Reduction of surtaxes from 32 per cent downward, with a sliding scale permitting the greatest reduc tions upon small incomes. 3.—Repeal of taxes on candy, furB, jewelry, ice cream, eye glasses, sport ing goods, etc. 4.—Tax of §6 a barrel on whisky withdrawn from warehouses or bond. 5.—Repeal of the excess profits tax as of January 1, 1922. 6.—Retention of the capital stock tax. 7.—Repeal of tlie transportation taxes on Pullman, freight and passen ger rates. 8.—Retention of the 15 per cent tax on corporations. The Smoot manufacturers' tax was discussed at the conference, but there was not unanimity as to Its advisabil ity, some of the conferees said, al though a majority were represented as opposed to the Smoot plan. Democratic leaders were more hope ful» th^n ever of getting through the more important of the amendments to the pending bill which they have given notice they will offer. Senator Robinson (Dem.) of Arkan sas, in an address in the senate, said that apparently the pending measure was "dead in the hands of its former friend!?. Virtually all the Democratic demands, it seems, are to be incorpo rated into the bill, as the Republicans have heard mutterings of a coming storm." The Smoot manufacturers' sales tax plan drew fire from Senator Lenrooot, Republican, Wisconsin. In cases where the proposed 3 per cent tax1 could not be passed on to the customer, Senator Lenroot said, it would add to the already heavy bur dens of manufacturers now operating without profit to give employment to labor, and if it could be shifted to the consumer it would be subject to the same criticism as is the excess profits tax, in that each dealer handling the goods would charge the ultimate con sumer a commission for collecting the tax. "Tf $191,000 HOLDUP IN CHICAGb Police Nab Entire Three Men and Recover Loot Before Theft is Discovered.'

Anyway, Tor several weeks Thomas W. Lamont of J. P. Morgan & Co. has been making prep arations for a trip to Mexico City to discuss with Mexican government offi cials the status of that country's ex ternal obligations. Mr. Lamont makes the trip at the request of the International Commit-, tee of Bankers' on Mexico, of which he is acting chairman. The Mexican government extended an Invitation to the committee some time ago. Ac companied by a secretarial staff and Statistical assistants, Mr. Lamont wil' receive suggestions of the Mexicoj government and report back fo the committee. The committee represents British, French, Swiss, Dutch and Bel gian Interests. wife I eny. creditor, with France probably ranking second. 'r fi "fc Chauncey M. Depew is made, by the force of circumstances, to pose as an object lesson In thrift. Anyway, along about 1950 or 1900 when Chaun cey M. Depew decides to retire from the directorate of the New York Cen tral railroad and pass his declining years in rest and quiet at Brlarcllff Manor he will have a nice little nest egg laid aside for his old age. He told a reporter about It the other day. "The first $100 I ever earned," he said, "was deposited in the Peeksklll Savings bank at Interest. That' was more than sixty years ago, the year before the Civil war started. It has been there ever since, because I never had the heart to draw It out, although sometimes I needed It badly. I al ways thought something might happen. "Then I forgot all about It," the former senator continued. "The other day I was in Peeksklll and dropped In at the bank. I asked them if I had any money there and an official told me cnat my old account of $100 was still on the books and had multiplied to $800. He said It was their 'star account' because of Its venerableness." So far so good. Toung man, put $100 In the bank and let It Increase to $S00! How can you make $700 easier? Money works while you sleep, etc., etc. And now gaze on the contrast Mr. Depew added that he had another account of $87.50 which he deposited In the Westchester County bank fifty years ago. This did not draw Interest. It is still there.and still $87.50. Moral: Deposit your $100 In a bank where the deposit will draw Interest and be compounded. Changes in Harding Cabinet? Dispatches from Washington In the press have reported that Attorney General Harrj' M. Daugherty is pre paring to resign from President Har ding's cabinet. The plan seems to be that he probably will become a can didate for United Senator from Ohio. If elected he would probably become administration leader of the upper branch of congress. There are ulso rumors of other changes In the cabinet. Some of these rumors have grown out of the move ment to consolidate two or three of the executive departments presided over by cabinet members. For in stance, it is believed to be a fixed pol icy of the administration to consoli date the war and navy departments into a single department of national defense. However, if current reports be true, the dilemma as to Secretaries Weeks and Denby is In a fair way of solving itself. While official denials have been made, the report persists that Andrew W. Mellon of Pittsburgh secretary of the treasury soon will retire from that position. In that case, Secretary Weeks would probably step Into the position. Secretary Mellon is sixty-nine years old, the oldest member of the cab inet and there is no question but that his position has been a difficult one. He has found his position as head of the treasury department at this critical peri od in the finances of the nation a much more onerous duty than he expected when he gave his consent to .serve last winter. Goodrich Will Aid Haskell *y James P. Goodrich, former gov ernor of Indiana, has-sailed from New York, bound for Russia, to join the staff of Col. William N. Haskell, di rector of the American relief admin istration's mission to that country. He said the non-political character of the relief organization, headed by Secre tary Hoover, led him to offer, his serv ices. "I was deeply Impressed by Mr. Hoover's Instructions to Colonel Has kell," he added, "to the effect that any member of the mission who mixed In politics In Russia, or who showed an Inclination to discriminate in regard to race, creed or politics, must be prompt ly dismissed. It Is the absolute ad herence to that principle that has made the names of America and her great citizen, Hoover, blessed throughout the lands of central and eastern Europe."

Unexpected delays Inside Russia to American relief administration ship ments, while the suffering in the famine district is Increasing, have brought more vividly Into view the difficult transport problems. Mr. Goodrich will go to London, then to Moscow, by way of Berlin and Allies Want Mexican Cash' The external debt of the Mexican government has been roughly estimated at $200,000,000.

S. Chamber of Commerce Chiefs Declare Trade De pends on Assistance. WANT TROOPS ON RHINE America and Allies Should Present Solid Front in Demanding That Germany Make Good in Mat ter of Reparations. Washington, Oct. 7.—Conviction that the United States cannot refrain from active participation in the settlement of economic and financial difficulties confronting the world Is expressed by a special committee of the Chamber of Commerce of the United States, just back from an extended trip through European countries, where government officials and business leaders were in terviewed." On the committee are Joseph H. De frees of Chicago, president of tho chamber John H. Fahey of Boston, former president of the chamber and director of the International Chamber of Commerce Silas H. Strawn of Chi cago, Robert P. Lamont of Chicago, president of the American Steel Foun dries company John J. O'Connor of Washington and James H. Douglas, Jr., secretary. A chief obstacle at present to a re turn to normal business conditions throughout the world, the committee asserts, Is found in present wars and in the continued threat of new wars. Business will not resume Its forward movement, It Is declared, until the menace of war Is removed. 1 mmim Conclusions of the committee are: There Is a heavy financial burden In volved In continuing the armies of oc cupation, but the removal of this load depends on some effective plan for the maintenance of peace, on which the nations shall unite. The United States and the allies Should present a solid front In demand ing that Germany make good In the matter of reparations. The United States should participate In the work of the reparations com mission and in the work of the other commissions now existing or to be cre ated, which may deal with economic and financial questions which a the Upited States. There should formed an international commission of business to aid the reparations com mission in working out difficult finan cial problems concerning reparations. The United States should not with draw at this time her army on the Rhine. The committee found further that The world is operating, on a basis of less than one-half of the prewar stand ard. The consumption of 300,000,000 per sons Is reduced to 30 per cent of nor mal. The stronger nations cannot advance credit to relieve the situation unless there is assurance of stable conditions. The present German government is trying to meet the required repara tions payments. If the opposition' gets control In Ger many and attempts to evade or repudi ate the reparation settlements a crisis will be precipitated which will be a still further menace to peace. France and other countries border ing on Germany need protection against further attacks. Financial aid cannot be extended to Germany to enable her to purchase raw materials with which to manu facture goods for the purpose of pay ing her obligations unless there re mains a strong central government. The United States, in thasopinion of the committee, holds a peculiarly re sponsible position in the present situ ation, and as a matter of economic necessity cannot afford to shirk her "duties."
