SENATE FIRM FOR BIG NAVY
Passes Appropriation Bill Carrying
$494,000,000 — President Harding’s
Memorial Day Utterance—Rail
way Wage Reduction Announced
—More Fighting in Silesia.
By EDWARD W. PICKARD.
Another of those sudden and ter
rible race conflicts which make all de
cent Americans blush with shame oc
curred last week, this time In Tulsa,
Okla. Before the state troops that
were called to assist the police had
restored order at least thirty per
sons had been killed, hundreds had
been wounded and the negro quarter
of the city was In ashes. More than
6,000 negroes were rendered home
less and the property damage was es
timated to be in excess of a million
and a half dollars.
As so often Is the case, the riots
were due to an attack on a white girl
by a negro. The offender was arrest
ed and then someone started the ru
mor that he was to be lynched. Sev
eral hundred armed blacks gathered
about the courthouse and jail, and one
of them was killed by a police officer.
That started tne fighting, and within
a few hours the city had become an
armed camp. Both whites and blacks
looted the stores for guns, and the
negroes entrenched themselves In
their quarter. An army of whites
soon began the Invasion of that region
and, driving back the blacks, set Are
to the buildings as they advanced.
Men, women and children were shot .
down mercilessly as they fled from
their burning homes. Three local
units of the Oklahoma National Guard
were ordered out by the governor, and
they, with the help of the police and
members of the American Legion, at
last succeeded In controlling the sit
uation. They were able to protect
the business and railroad districts
from further destruction, but the
“black belt" was a smoking ruin.
The same old cries of “Shame I”
will be heard, and Tulsa will be thor
oughly scolded for this shocking af
fair; but the same causes will bring
about the same results ever and again,
almost anywhere In the United States,
and the wisest social economists do
not know where the remedy lies.
If the house can be brought around
to the senate’s way of thinking, we
will have the greatest navy in the
world. But the difference of view
of the two chambers is represented
Just now by some $98,000,000, and It
may be a long time before an agree
ment Is reached. By a vote of 54 to
17 the senate passed the naval appro
priation bill carrying a total of $494,
00U,000. For several weeks the small
navy men had fought hard, but they
secured a reduction of only $2,500,
000 from the total recommended by
the naval committee. Their leader.
Senator Borah, voted for the bill be
cause, as he explained, he had high
hopes of results from his amendment
requesting the President to Invite
Great Britain and Japan to Join with
the United States In curtailing naval
construction. That Mr. Harding takes
the Borah plan seriously Is Indicated
by the report that our representatives
In London and Tokyo already are
"fooling out" the sentiment In the gov
ernments to which they are ac
credited.
The bill as passed by the senate car
ries $106/100,000 for construction of
Ships, Including an Item of $15,000,00C
for the beginning of work on two air
plane carriers at a limit cost of $52,
000,000; $18,000,000 for aviation, and
funds for 120,000 men. Several mil
lions of dollars are allowed foi
strengthening the Pacific Coast de
fenses, and money Is provided for
farther work on the Charleston navj
yard, the majority having relented In
that matter.
Memorial day not only was cele
brated fittingly all over the United
States, but In England and France as
well, where many of our dead war
riors still lie. In this country, of
course, the most notable observance
of the day was In the national ceme
tery jit ^Lrllngton, where the Presi
dent delivered the address. Mr. Har
ding took advantage of the occasion
to declare that America must and will
Jo her full part In helping to stabilize
the world, to restrain ambition for
empire and to prevent the disaster
to civilization that would come from
a denial of the equality of sovereign
states or persons. The United States,
he asserted, will neither pursue a pol
icy of Isolation nor surrender any of
Its Independence of action, but will
stand ready to accept leadership In
the restoration of normalcy In the
world.
In a Memorial day address In a
Chicago suburb, former Senator
James Hamilton Lewis predicted a
war with Japan In which America will
stand alone. “Not one country In
Europe Is truly the friend of the
United States,” he said. “The time
Is coming when we shall have to pro
tect ourselves against an invasion of
the Asiatics.” England, France, and
Italy, he said, will be appealed to by
Japan to force the United States to
grant the Japanese the same privi
leges as they enjoy In Europe.
The federal railway labor board has
announced the wage reduction that
goes into effect on July 1, when the
national agreements are abrogated.
The average wage cut Is to be 12 per
cent and this eventually will reduce
the pay rolls of the 104 roads affected
by $400,000,000 a year. The board
In Its decision sets up new uniform
wage scales for all groups of employ
ees, and these will later apply to every
road in the country. The abrogation
of the national agreements. It is be
lieved, may save the roads an addi
tional $300,000,000 yearly. In labor
circles It had been feared a greater
wage reduction would be ordered by
the board; hence It Is predicted the
action may arouse little open oppo
sition. The chiefs of the railway
unions reserved comment.
jliiu uttj inter me uuuius i uuufe
was made public President Harding
surprised the Interstate commerce
commission by calling at Its office for
a conference on freight rate reduc
tion, which he deems of vital Impor
tance In the restoration of business.
He made clear his desire in this line,
but It was evident that he would have
to overcome strong opposition. The
cabinet agrees with the President that
prohibitive transportation rates large
ly account for the stagnation of busi
ness and the continued high price of
the necessities of life.
gjijllfman Clark of the Interstate
commerce commission and Senator
Cummins, chairman of the senate com
mittee on Interstate commerce, agree,
however, with the railroad executives,
who contend that rates cannot be re
duced generally until It has been
proved that railroad expenses can be
cut to a point assuring an adequate
return on the Investment
Aviation In America is hard hit by
disaster and economies. The country
was shocked by the accident near
Washington In which an army plane,
caught In a fierce electrical storm, was
destroyed and all Its seven occupants
killed. The victims included several
aviation officers and former Congress
man Maurice Connolly. Blame fof the
accident. If there Is any, Is hard to
place though It Is felt that the es
tablishment of altitude .observation
stations would do much to avert sim
ilar disasters.
At the government proving ground
at Aberdeen, Md., where rehearsals
for the army and navy maneuvers in
Chesapeake bay were taking place, a
50-pound bomb filled with TNT fell
from a plane and the explosion killed
five men and Injured twelve. Apparent
ly the mechanism of the bomb-carrying
rack was defective.
All the i lr mall routes established
with so much flourish, except the trans
continental line from New York to San
Francisco have been abandoned, Post
master General Hays saying this it
due to lack of money and to dlfficul
ties of operation. The St. Paul-Chl
cago and St. Lou is-< Chicago routes were
the last to be discontinued. This ac
tion may be linked with the charges
of inefficiency, carelessness and mis
conduct made against certain of the
operating force of the air mail in the
Middle West. Investigation has result
ed in the temporary suspension of E.
W. Majors, superintendent of the
Omaha-Oleveland division, and of four
of his subordinates and one mechanic,
Mr. Majors and the pilots in his divi
sion deny the charge made hy a dis
charged pilot, that the deaths of sev
eral air mail carriers were due to
criminal carelessness of the executive
and mechanical forces. The investi
gation is not yet completed.
The Poles and Germans In Upper
Silesia did not observe their truce for
many hours. The Germans renewed
the attucks and the lighting has been
continuous ever since, despite the ef
forts of the allied plebiscite forces,
which have been reinforced by a body
of British troops. In general the Poles
seem to be getting the worst of the
fighting, for the Germans were well
organized secretly and are fully armed.
There was a serious outbreak In Beu
then, where the German inhabitants
attacked the French garrison. The
latter used tanks with deadly effect
nnd routed the Germans, killing many.
With the arrival of the British forces
it appeared likely that Korfanty’s In
surgent Poles would be driven out of
much of the disputed territory which
they had seized.
Chancellor Wirth apparently is de
termined to force Germany to fulfill
her obligations to the allies. In a
speech before the relchstag he set
forth the economic rules and policies
through which, he believes, the Ger
man nation can pay Its debts and yet
maintain economic stability and In
dependence. He intends not only to
keep up with the payments as they
fall due, but to keep ahead of them.
“The sums to be paid in repara
tions,” he declared, “can be extract
ed only by creating an economic bal
ance. We must increase our produc
tion and reduce our expenses to the
utmost in our manufactures. We
must limit all imports, especially luxu
ries, as far as possible through customs
tax measure. To this end we should
have sovereignty over our customs
borders.
“Agrlcultm-e must be brought to Its
highest capacity, systematically. Ani
mals must be replaced by motors, sav
ing fodder. Acreage must be Increased,
and the cultivation of swamps and
deserts must be undertaken at the
earliest moment, thus providing work
for those out of employment. The
sword has been broken. We must
work.”
The chancellor foreshadowed a high
er corporation tax, a bourse tax, an
inheritance tax, a landed property tax
and a tax on certain securities, 1b ad
dition to an increase in direct taxes.
Before the congress of the Com
munist party in Moscow Premier
Lenin laid his .economic program,
which was supported by Minister of
Agriculture Miliutin and approved by
the gathering. The policy as outlined
includes:
1. Collection from the peasants of a
fixed amount of grain by a system of
tax in kind, estimated by Miliutin to
amount to about one-third of the crop.
The other two-thirds of the crop is to
remain at the disposal of the peasant
for grading through the newly restored
co-operatives, whose power is to be ex
tended.
2. Retention in the hands of the
state of the largest industries and
means of transportation, particularly
the leather, salt and textile industries.
These latter are turning out manu
factured goods now most needed hy
the peasants. They are to be speeded
up In order to satisfy the peasants’
needs, and the workmen are to be en
couraged by a bonus system and other
inducements which will Inerense pro
duction. Supervision Is to be under
the trade unions, who will fix the rates
of pay Instead of the government as
heretofore,
3. Encouragement of small and me
dium eo-operatlves and private indus
tries. Factories will he leased to these
smaller Industries, and even financial
assistance will be given. The trades
unlens will fix wages.
