Victors politically in New Mexico. Arizona and El Paso are not as happy trouble of too many applicants for too It has been eight years smce the counter and they are rearln' for the0 cnanee now. Arizona is aot quite as bad as New Mexico, as yet, bat there are more applicants than Jobs in this state; in New Mexico there will be five or six men for every Job and :he men who parcel them out are going- to make a lot of enemies when they finally decide. In El Paso there Is going; to be one job less for the victorious Republic ans to fight over if the New Mexi- ans have their way, and they say it has been promised them. They rssert that the customs collectorship belongs to New Mexico and they are coin to have It this time: in fact. ihat it has been promised; by whom they do not say. Gamble for District Attorney. ' They even go so far in New Mexico as to say that they have an agree nent with certain El Paso Republic an leaders to let the customs collec torship go to New Mexico If the New Mexicans will in turn make a fight for Harvey R. Gamble for the United States district attorneyship. This job has always gone to a man in ' ast Texas. Charles Boynton, of Waco, had it the last time the Repub licans gave it out and a San Antonio man holds ft under the present Dem ocratic administration. But in New Mexico they are saying that the El Paso Republicans want Gamble to : ave it this time and that senator Kail and national committeeman Holm O. Bursum have agreed to help 5 im get ft if the El P&soans will k-p off the collectorship. it wan mmorea in jsi paso some t me ago that Capt- Walter Case, who managed the El Paso county Repub 1 can campaign, and helped to carry ir.r cny ana county ior uaxamg. vantea tne collectorship. He is an o erseas man. a captain of artillery, and could, possibly, "make a fuss" about the job if he liked. Maybe the posimastership at El Paso, would suit mm nowever. Vo lss a personage than Bursum himself told mar that New Mexico v ould claim the Job and he believed the state would land it- Charlie Haat WnM a Job. They pay in Santa Fe that Col. Charles Hunt, a pioneer El Pasoan, :-nd at present, or until recently say h ow, operating a "dab in Jure for Americans, is reputed to have askd senator Fall to get the El Paso .-ollectorship for him. but senator Fall is quoted as saying he feared El Pasoan would fight the confirm ation m the senate. He is said to have offered to make CoL Hunt an ambassador to some South American republic, where his Spanish speaking proclivities would make it easy far mm. In Santa Fe, they are talking of George Curry for the collectors?! hi at El Paso. He is an ex-governor of Nfw Mexico, a former governor of a Philippine province, a former chief of ponce oi Manila and a former cap tain in th Rough Riders. Bnrsnm told me the party would get Curry BToocx a zeaeraj jou as possible. Cnrry told me he did not want any i-iaie jo a, inn ne wocia taxe a lea eral Job if it paid enough.

Man uel's brother, Ed. is said to be slated for national committeeman If Fall resigns and Bursum is appointed senator. If Fall does not resign. Bursum will enter the race for the senate against A. A. Jones, Demo cratic incumbent, in 1922, and, if elected, which seems probable, he would drop the mantle of national committeeman onto the shoulders of Ed Otero, who as "the crown prince" tt-ould no doubt fitly wear the man tle hlx uncle Sol wore so long.

LAST YEAR'S LOSSES MAY BE CHARGED AGAINST THIS YEAR, BUT PUBLIC MUST GET BENEFIT BY DAVID WASHINGTON. D. O. Jan. . Business men throughout tbe United States are breathing easier as a result of two decisions by tne treasury department with refer ence to income taxes, but they should oear in mind a warning which offi cials of the aovernment are exnreas- ing informally, namely, that unless the public gets the benefit of the same prices as are put on income tax blanks, there will be prosecution for ir&na. roe ruling ot the treasury de partment is bound to relieve business men everywhere, for thousands of them protested by letter and telegram against existing regulations and argued that in view of the abnormal conditions they should be permitted in way xo cnarjre in 13 years losses against last year's business. Should Have Wholnwrae Effect. The treasury department took the matter under advisement and has ruled that under the law it was per missible for firms to adopt as a basis for Inventory the actual market value of the goods on hand today. This means that the government will not exact a tax on money that is really not earned, and the effect of the rul ing on business should be exceedingly wholesome. The terms of the inline are technical and rather complicated, and can best be understood by an illustration: If a merchant had on hand $5000 worth of goods on Decem ber JJ. m, or .at any rate. If in his income tax statement be told the eov- ernment that he had ,S0a in goods in stock, that item is used as a basis for the calculation. Thus, daring the year 1920. he bought more goods for 913.000. the total of J 17,000 would represent the value of the goods originally. But in view of the fact that in most instances tbe selling prices have fallen below actual cost, a merchant is permitted to estimate what is the market price of his goods on hand. Supposing that prices have shrunk so that the market value of the f goods is only S0O0. The mer chant, therefore, can deduct $8000 from U7.00, and the remainder. J9000. becomes the cost of his goods. Then if be received $10,000 for his goods during the year, his actual profit on which taxes would be paid, would be tne auierence Between the cost, J90no. and the sale. $10,000. or $1000. Simi larly, if his money receipts were only Royalty Gathers For W edding Of Austrian And Italian Nobility rRIN. Italy. Jan. 6.

RESCUE SQUADS WATCH TRAILS FORAERONAUTS Food And Extra Clothing Sent To Weather Worn Airmen.

Definite v word as to the progress being made by the three United States naval officers now dog sledding their way back to civilization after being swept in a balloon from Rockaway, X.

Seasoned trappers of the Hudson Bay company, speculating on the meagre reports of Indian runners from Moose Factory, where the aeronauts de scended, predicted they would arrive here by tomorrow.

What does the term mean? Every merchant will have to make his own estimate. But the government will exercise a careful check on the "market price and will investigate and compare all classes of returns so as to discover just what the prevailing prices were at any given period. If it should be discovered that a merchant on his in come tax return said the market value of so many articles was such and such a price, the government will see if the merchant actually gave the public the benefit of these prices and did sell his goods at these figures. Should there he a material discrepancy between 1 what the income tax returna said was the market price and what the public actually paid, the government will consider the difference prima facie evidence of fraud and will prosecute offenders. Actual cost market prices accord ing to government officials, means the cost to a merchant of replacing the goods. After all. that is the prices which a competitor would have to pay for the same kind of goods If he had no stock on hand and there will be plenty of instances of this kind on income tax returns which will enable the government to tell whether a man with the goods on hand properly valued his goods. It is natural ly to the interest of the merchants to show on his income tax return that his goods have shrunk to a small price because that helps to diminish the else of the profits on which taxes are paid, but if the gov ernment does not find the merchant selling to the public at somewhere near inventory prices the charge of fraud will be entered and the in come tax return will be held up and all sorts of complications would fol low. On the other hand government of ficials anticipate that business iri gen eral will obey the spirit of ruling and will be more than anxious to give the public the benefit of reductions be cause in taking losses at this time the merchants will not have to pay so much money to the government in I taxes, and may. indeed, in many in j (Continued on page 2 column 4.)
