Perhaps the German is a little slow to laugh at himself, bat he Is begin ning' to sqneese oat a few grim sir lies about his former enemies. The German believes his country is going to the "bow wows." Dirty; ragged, underfed, with their over worked government presses unable to print paper money rapidly enough to meet the demand, ever on the verge of a civil war. the German gets his. uucior irom raicuung uie aiiiea propaganda that Germany has a pow erful army hidden up her sleeve. The Trenc measures to draw the fangs -f German militarism lead the Deutsche Zeitnng, formerly the news paper read in the officers casinos, to trie following sarcasm "The entente is preparing a new rote for Germany, the contents of which have been suggested by Gen. Foch Our reporter, through his special relations to the French, has vad an opportunity to see the docu ment before It was sent. It reads: Ssase Genuine Sarcasm. " The governments of the allied est uneasiness that the German eot- e-nment has sot taken sufficiently energetic steps to oppose the mili taristic preparations for a campaign "f revenge. The supreme council of t e allied powers has, therefore, unanimously decided with the agree Trt of the techniral military ad v Eers. to make the following de irands of the German government ' 'All canes and walking sticks ex is ng in Germany are to be confis cated Immediately and to be dellv-e-ed to the allies. The German gov-f-nment is to issue an order forbid r ng the manufacture of wooden 'Walk a Block and Save The Difference." Felt Hate FOR FALL WEAR We have a very com plete stock In all sizes, shapes and colors. Regular $6.50 value, special sticks resembling those articles more than JO centimeters lone; the Ger man government guarantees that this regulation will be strictly enforced. "The manufacture of field gray material of metal buttons and leather leggings within the German borders is to be forbidden, these articles having a tendency td. awaken tnongnts or a military nature. - The German government will or der all militaristic words, snch as war, army, sword, gun, cndgel, etc to be withdrawn from the German vocabulary; their use either in writ ing or speech is to be severely ptroished. " The description of all militaristic action in theaters, plays and books is to be prohibited. All printed matter in which such events are mentioned is to be destroyed at once. Goose Step Forbidden. "It is forbidden for two or more people of German nationality (this includes both sexes) to walk together In step, as thereby militaristic thoughts are awakened. The use of the right hand is to be restricted to the utmost degree, as it serves mili taristic purposes. At any rate, the right half of the body is considered reactionary. " 'All male nersons who before and dnring the war as well is after it. have belonged to unions ana assocra tlou n a militars character are im mediately to be delivered up to the allies for punishment. " The German government is given one half hour's time in which to earrv out these regulations to the let ter. If, after the expiration of this time, any Item of this program has been negiectea. tne aiuea powers re serve the right to declare the Ger man empire dissolved and to invite all Germans over two weeks' old be fore the allied courts for punish ment. The -basis of this sarcastic attack is the French regulation in occupied territory forbidding turnverelns, for bidding wasd or stick drills and punishing any school teacher who directs or permits his class in school exercises to march in military step. vERG i '30 6 itiMljjgl gjpciaaoa gn Navy's Riot-Racket Makes Big Noise When Racketing Did you ever hear a riot-racket racket?

IS The reve nue commission, authorized by the special session of the legislature and appointed by Gov. O. A. Larrazolo, la holding hearings here now and se curing views on the subject of re vision and improvement of taxation from every possible angle. The rec ommendations of the commission will be made into a report to the gover nor and the next regular session of the legislature, and will be submitted as a basis for new legislation on the subject. It is probable that tenta tive drafts of a new law on income tax and a mine tax will be made by the commission. In the general dis cussion there was agreed upon the point that the income tax ought to be extended so as to include all indi viduals, the wage earner not less than the capitalist. There was a di vision of opinion as to whether the tax should be graduated or progres sive. Not over 50 percent of the country commissioners, assessors and treas urers of New Mexico are efficient, competent and Industrious. said Mai .re jl neuu or uexter, today. Major Raid Is president of the farmers' as asocfation and former president of the state tax commission. He was talking on the subject of land valua tion and the question of assessment and valuation In gensraL His re mark quoted was an answer to a di rect question by chairman Hagerman of the revenue commission efficient administration of state and county offices would go a long way toward relieving the present serious tax bur den in the major's opinion, and the present campaign ought to be as much for efficient administration of existing laws as for the creation of new laws. Another recommendation ; he made was that a member of the state tax commission should be a member of the state budget commit tee and that all state institutions should be required to submit their respective budgets three months be fore the committee takes up its budget.
