SHIELDS BELIEVES
GARRETT IS SAFE
Senator Looks for His Confirmation
- as Federal Judge.
Knoxvile, Tenn., Dec. 20. United
States Senator John K. Shields be
lieves that the nomination of Con
gressman Finis J. Garrett as Federal
Judgo for the Memphis District will
be confirmed in the Senate when it
comes up for vote.
Stopping over hero en route from
Washington to hi3 homo in Grainger
County, Senator Shields in an inter
view expressed the opinion that the
opposition of certain successful can
didates at tho recent election, who
will not be Congressmen until after
March 4, will not prevail against the
confirmation of Congressman Gar
rett, nominated by President Wilson
to be the United States Judge in West
Tennessee, whom ho said many Re
publican in the Senate are support
ing. "They are not Congressmen
yet," the Senator remarked.
The time , will come when these
Congressmen-elect will want some
thing at the hands of the Senate
which they will not bo able to get
without the assistance of Democrats,
Senator Shields stated.
Senator Shields stated that with
the passage of the water power bill,
which he introduced in the Senate,
all obstacles and obstructions - that
lay in the way of enterprise and cap
ital in the development of vast water
power potentialities in Tennessee,
and especialy in Ea3t Tennessee, are
removed. Nothing remains to op-
lose thi3 devolcpment but the diffi
culties of nature itself, ho added.
Senator Shields epoko highly of
Congressman Garrett in discussing
his nomination, saying that he is an
exceptionally able lawyer and has a
splendid Judicial mind and temperament.
24 BILLIONS NET COST OF WAR.
Washington, D. C. The net cost
of tho war to. the American gov
ernment was fixed by Secretary
Houston at $24,010,000,000. This,
h e said, represented . the "ad
Justed" expenditures of the treasury,
excluding all other outlay which had
no relation to the actual prosecution
of the war from , the period from
April 6, 1917, to Juno 30, last.whlch,
he said, covered the extremes of the
government's war timo fiscal oper
ationa. - ' ,
" Total expenditures by the govern
ment during the period covered ex
cepting only postal disbursements
from postal revenues were $38,830,
812,395, treacury figures showed. Of
this amount, $16,070,844,097 was
obtained in taxes and revenue from
sources other than borrowed money.
Mr. Houston said a deduction of
$9,523,000,000, tbfe amount loaned
to foreign "governments, should be
made from the grand total since these
loans will be repaid and consequently
can' not be charged as an actual ex
penditure. The pocrotary made other
deductions aggregating approximate
ly $4,500,000,000 which he said rep
resented the, excess cost of actual
governmental operations for the
three years and three months over
what they would have been in nor
mal times.'

Every Organ in the Body is Vital to You.
Every organ in our bodies are vital to our welfare and continued health.
The organs are kept healthy and functioning as a , result of the active Intelligent
energy, sent out from the brain. '
This nerve force is transmitted to the organs of the body by the Spinal Nerves.
To protect these nerves, and as a support to the body, we have the Spinal Column.
The Spinal Column is made up of separate movable bones. If one of these bones
becomes out of place, pressure results on the nerve.
The Chiropractor relieves this pressure by adjusting the Vertebrae that are out of
place. Consultation and Spjnal Analysis free at office.
