Senator-K. D. McKELLAR. Railroad Commissioner (Western Divi-ion)-PORrER DUNLAP. Congress-FINIS J. GARRETT. State Senate S. L. MAIDEN. kepresentative-S. R. BRATTON. Floater -G L. CLAIBORNE. Senator Borah Bolts. Senator William. E. Borah, of Ida ho, is preparing to return to his home State to launch . a fight against his own party. The issue, in a sense, is a local one to Idaho, but in a larger sense it is a national one. The Republicans of Idaho haTe written into their platform a pledge to repeal the direct primary law. Senator Borah is an advocate of di rect primaries. In taking this ac tion, the Idaho convention voices the sentiments of such party leaders as President Harding and members of his cabinet. Senator Borah has been a progres sive. He is classed as a Republican. He has been regular. In 1912, he refused to follow Roosevelt. In 1919, he helped to organize the Senate for his party, despite his hatred of Pen rose and all that the Old Guard stood or. Senator Borah's colleague from Idaho is Senator Gooding, the head . of the tariff bloc. Borah opposed Gooding on most of the schedules and on all of the important ones. Two years from now, Borah will be a candidate for re-election. With the direct primary act repealed, he would have little chance of renomi nation at the haals of a convention j '. in control of Gooding and his follow ing. So Borah is to return to Idaho to , stage a fight, the result of which will mean his continuace in or elimina tion from politics. There are three State tickets in Idaho this year. The Republicans are pledged to repeal the primary act. The Democrats and Progressives siTe pledged to retain it. Senator Borah will take the stump against the regular Republican nom iaees, breaking with his party for the first time. There is a deeper significance to this than shows on the surface. It emphasizes the tendency toward breakdown of Republican solidarity There is no progressive movement as In 1912, but noae may tell what 1924 will bring forth. There is no Republican party left in North Dakota or Wisconsin and mighty little of it in Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska. Senator Ladd and Senator LaFol lette are Republicans in name only, and if Brookhort aad Howell are Re publicans, then Harding and Gooding are not. There is no great issue on which these representatives of the two wings of the party can agree. Senator Borah's campaign will be viewed with as great an interest as any political battle of-the year. The Tennessean sever excused the senior Senator from Idaho for his hostility to the League of Nations, hut of all the men who opposed it in the Senate, he is the least susceptibld to charges of partisanship or personal hatreds. . There is no gainsaying the fact that Senator Borah is the outstand ing figure of a rather mediocre body, the most forefiful debater on either side of the chamber, an orator of pronounced ability, with a capacity for research and study rarely equalled by a member of the Congress. His sincerity and honesty of pur pose never hate been questioned, while his courage is of a high order. The one large achievement of the present administration is his. He 'was the father of the proposal to lim it naval armaments, although he was ignored by the administration whose hand he forced, when the honors were passed out.

The steamer Venus with 'the corps of en gineers who made surveys and took sounds here a few weeks ago, re turned to this city Friday and until last night was making a survey of Island No. 6 across the river from here, and the shore above. They went to Cairo after making govern ment survey here a few weeks ago, then going to a point just below Hickman and making survey and soundings along the river bank for several miles where the river has 2een cutting ia. The head of No. 6 Island formerly extended out into the river across and above Hickman, but this during -the last year ha ben entirely cut Deficits. The country, and even Congress, seem to have been startled by the announcement of the President, made in his bonus veto message, that for the year ending June next there will be a deficit of $ 650,000,000; For this Congress is in part, and poor business in part, responsible. Con gress has reduced taxes without giv ing sufficient thought to the need for revenue. There has also been a heavy falling off in receipts as the result of business depression. For this Con gress is not to blame except for its failure to foresee it, as It ought to have done, and as every one else, who gave any attention to the matter, did. This assured deficit will have some very important effects, though whether it will have any effect on Congress is somewhat doubtful. The need for the strictest economy is be coming more and more imperative perhaps we shall have to resort even to "cheese-paring economy," a thing scorned by statesmen who delight in liberality with the people's money. It has already been shown that mQny of the duties Imposed by the new tariff bill wlfl yield nothing, since they are so high as to exclude alto gether the importation of the articles on which they are to be levied. The budget bureau has done its best, and has accomplished something, but It cannot increase revenues. Nor can it effect much of a saving without the cordial co-operation of Congress Whether it will have it we are yet to see. One thing is certain, and that is that the government will have to quit "branching out," and, for the time at least, be content to perform the functions with which it is at present charged, without looking for new fields in which to exercise its powers. As a matter of fact, there ought to be a curtailment of func tions and activities, for these within the last twenty-five years have mul tiplied to a dangerous extent. If Congress would learn its lesson, and draw the right moral from present conditions, the country would profit largely and in many ways from the deficit which is now so embarrassing. Indianapolis News. MARSHALL NELLAN GOES AFTER THE REAL THING' IN STUDIO SETS Statement by Secretary Mellon. The Treasury announces that effec tive October 1, 1922, the issue prices of Treasury Savings Certificates will increase to $20.50 for the $25 certifl cates, $82 for the $100 certificates, and $820 for the $1,000 certificates At the new prices Treasury Savings Certificates will yield about 4 per ent compounded semi-annually i f held to maturity and about 3 per cent 3imple interest if redeemed before maturity. The new certificates will be dated September 30, 1922, in or der to distinguish them from the cer- tincates now on sale, which are dated December 15, 1921. The cur rent issue of certificates, which is be ing sold at $20 for a $25 certificate, $80 for a $100 certificate, and $800 for a $1,000 certificate, will continue on sale until the close of business September 30, 1922, and will then be withdrawn from sale in favor of the new certificates. Treas ury Savings Stamps, non-interest bearing, which are now on sale in the denomination of $1, will like wise be withdrawn from sale at the close of business September 30, 1922. The current issue of Treasury Sav- ngs Certificates was first placed on sale December 15, 1921, and since that date certificates up to about $115,000,000 (maturity value) have been sold. Sales have been running at the rate of about $15,000, 000 maturity value per month and there is every evidence that the cer tificates have proven increasingly at tractive to investors. With sales sat isfactorily established on a going ba sis and with the improvement that has taken place in the investment markets, the time has come to read- Just the interest basis on which the certificates are sold and the Treasury has accordingly decided to make the increase in price which is now an nounced. At the new prices the cer tificates should continue to be highly attractive to investors, particularly small investors who desire to save systematically and the Treasury looks forward with confidence to the con tinued co-operation of all helpful agencies in promoting their sale.

The building of "sets" in motion picture production Is rapidly disap pearing, and in place of the artificial settings producers are photographing actual interiors wherever this ia possible. Marshall Neilan, the famous pro ducer 8nd ever a leader in cinematic innovations, has practically elimi nated artificial settings in "Fools First," his latest picture for First Natonal release, which is coming to Reynolds Theatre Monday for a two day engagement. Xy Such scenes as the interiors of a bank, the night school, the hotel lob by, etc., in "Fools First"," were staged in actual surroundings. "For years bank interiors have been built on the studio stage," said Mr. Neilan in discussing the subject. "It was a difficult matter to make the sets look real and convincing. In Fools First' there are interiors of a real bank that could never be suc cessfully reproduced on a studio stage. Although it requires a little inconvenience to the director, the 'shooting' of actual interiors is a great saving in motion picture pro ducton. "The perfection of the new port able generating plant such as the big power plant I have Just completed, makes it easier for the director to obtain actual interiors. "With such a machine we simply receive permission from the bank or the owner of, the Institution which we wish to photograph, drive up the electric generator truck, run cables into the room wo wish to photo graph, hook uf the lights and turn on the switch. We are then ready to get the real article. "This, as compared to the building of elaborate' sets, necessitating large expenditures of time and money, sim plifies picture making and gives the audience the real thing. "Motion picture devotees have be come critical in the matter of back grounds and they can tell immedi ately when a room is artificial or faked.' Time was when sideboards and picture frames were painted Oft the walls of the set. Then someone started using real furniture. It was no longer possible to paint furniture on walls and satisfy the public. "And so with the use of 'sets.' Of course, there will always be sets, es pecially in instances where foreign backgrounds are called for. How ever, where it is possible to photo graph the real article, the use of artificial settings is rapidly becoming a thing of the past." bt- fir y' . fv - j'' 'V- We'll match "the other fellow" on Quality and Prices and beat him on Service) Goodrich SILVER TOWN CORDS in every size, including 30x3.
