try In the country which “has not been
compelled by the laws of commerce
and lnduetry te reduce prloss and re
duce coste,” according to a brief filed
within the interstate commerce corn
ua lesion, by Clifford Thorne, spokes
man for the shippers in dosing the
general Investigation into transporta
tion ratee.
Wholesale prices of commodities hav#
dropped fifty per cent and interest
rates on money two per cent since 1920
when the last general advances were
put on railroad service charges, the
brief asserted and the time has come
when that advance must be removed.
"If all of it cannot be taken at one
time," the brief continued, "then Ist

a half of it. removing in substantial
amounts the transportation burdens

ed by Representative Badtarsch. Re
publican, of New Jersey, to impose for
a period of three years a one per cent
tax on wholesales, designed to raise
$600,000,000 with which to finance the
bonus. Those supporting theso meas
ures were all Republicans—lxmgworth
of Ohio. Baeharach. Mott of New
York, Tllson and Watson of Pennsyl
vania.
Under an amendment suggested by
Governor Harding and adopted by
unanimous vote banks making original
loans on the adjusted service certifi
cates could have those certificates re
discounted by other banks authorised
to make original loans on the certifi
cates.
Governor Harding objected to having
ths certificates redlacountable by fed
eral reserve banks, saying the general
economic effect would be unfavorable-
Decision to call the federal reserve
board's governor. Secretary Mellon end
Comptroller Crlssinger. was reached by
the committee at a morning secret ses
sion. The Democrats Insisted that
they should have opportunity to hear
these officials and they finally carried
their point after a sharp debate, the
vote being thirteen to eleven, with
seven Republicans supporting ths mo
tion and two Democrats opposing it.
Tho Republicans were: Longworth.
Tilson, Baeharach. Tready, Watson.
Young of North Dakota and the Demo
crats were Tague of Massachusetts and
t’arew of New York. At this same ses
sion the commission rejected an
amendment by Representative Oldfield.
Democrat of Arkansas, proposing to
restore the original rash provisions in
the place of the bank loan amendment
and to reimpose the excess profits tax
as a means of raising the required rev
enue.
Another amendment to restore the
war-time Income eur-tax rate of sixty
five per cent, also was rejected.
Secretary Mellon and Mr. Crlselngnr
reiterated to the committee th*lr op
position to thw adjusted certifies# loan
plan but Governor Harding declined
to comment on ths advisability of bonus
lsgislatlon at this time otbsr than to
say that in his Judgment the bank loan
plan would help the beneficiary but
probably not the banks. ,
There Is a difference of opinion bo
tween tho treasury, secretary and ths
comptroller of the currency as to ad
vising banks not to make advances to
former service men on the rertlfl*-
cates. Mr. Mellon said the treasury
would not feel called on to give such
advice while Mr. f’rlsslnger reiterated,
that If national banks asked his opin
ion ho would advise against loans on
such security.
In explaining his position ths comp
troller said thers wore many banks In
tho west *nd also In ths east that held
an "unbelievable" amount of "past du«
and doubtful paper" and that such
banks probably could not make tbs
advances.
He aald It would take from on# to
five years for the banks to work out
the p»p*r to which be referred.
Secretary Mellon expressed the view
that it would be better from an eco
nomic standpoint for the treasury to
borrow in tho first instance the MOO.-

“Competition has forced other indus

Thorns said, “and in transportation
where we have simply substituted gov

“the committee oould not consider rail
roads "sort of sacred cows" in our

of society and commerce; free from

he said, “had been attacked by studied
[propaganda" on the ground that It
'had not allowed roads to cut rates
but ita decisions contributed twice as
muoh toward bringing things back to
normal as all the railroads in the
United Staten havd* done.
“This was ■ true,” he said, “because
the wage bill of American roads had
been cut $400,000,000 annually by the
board since 1910 while all the rate re
ductions allowed by the railroads in
the same tithe only cost them $189,000.-
000 in revenue.
Mr. Thorne asked that the rate cut
be Allowed, “that equilibrium be ob
served in the fall of chargee and costs
in the various Industries." and, “that
the commission keep the docket in this
case open for further orders and fur
ther hearings," as the costs of rail

peace when it has had to withstand
the onslaughts made upon it in the
name of economy of pacifism.
"It appears now duo to the demands
for economy in our national expendi
tures, another critical hour for the
army and the national defense is at
hand."
Referring to the frequent slashee in
army strength made by congrees since
tho war General Pershing said:
"In a vacillating course" with re
spect of army personnel, discouraged
competent men from entering the ser
vice and lowered morale and efficiency
within tha army until It was "diffi
cult” if not impossible to ueo to ad
vantage the services of oven the best
of such personnel."
"But whatever congress may eee fit
to grart the chief of staff added, tho
army will as it always has, apply it
sslf to giving the nation as much na
tional defense as it can. It will not
quit no matter how badly crippled.
"It does ask however not thru self
interest but in the interests of the
country that its missions, its personnel
and its means of accomplishing the
mtasiona be given some permanency
and that it be permitted thru continu
ity of effort to give the country a full
return for its expenditures for national
defense."
