WASHINGTON, D. C. (Autocast cr), January 13. —President-elec? Roosevelt is already making his in liuence felt in Washington. Every thing was set for the enactment of a general manufacturers’ sales tax law, with both the Republican Ad ministration and the Democrats in Congress in favor of it, when word came from Albany that Mr. Roose velt had different ideas—and that killed it. The belief is growing here, however, that there will yet be some cooperation. That belief is strength ened by the fact that Norman H. Davis, who has been Mr. Hoover’s principal emissary in Europe, spent several days in conference with Mr. Roosevelt. Mr. Davis is a Democrat, and an admirer and supporter of the incoming President. He is under stood to have given Mr. Roosevelt a comprehensive pictuse of the Eur opean situation and the necessity for early action not only in the matter of consideration of the war debts, but also the disarmament conference and flhe international monetary conference. Firm On Debt Stand Political Washington hasn’t reced ed a bit from the attitude held by both Republican and Democratic leaders that there can be no can cellation of the war debts owing by Europe to America, That there will have to be some revision of terms, perhaps in some cases a reduction of the interest rate, perhaps in other cases an arrangement wnich will benefit American industry in re turn for concessions, is quite gen erally admitted. Washington is still applauding Secretary Stimson’s reply to the in quiry transmitUdfc from the new Premier of France through Am bassador Edge. The head of the French government asked the Am bassador to find out from his gov ernment what steps were necessary to open up the discussion of distri bution. Mr. Edge passed the question on to the State Department and Mr. Stimson replied, in effect: “The first necessary step is for France to pay us that $19,000,000 that was due on December 15th. | After they have paid that then we i will talk about the rest of it.” The French government is very | much concerned over the effect ini America of its failure to pay. It isj not going too far to say that Eng- : land's stock is higher than it has i been in many years, and France’s' is lower. Reports received by the j Foreign Trade Bureau of the De- ! partment of Commerce indicate that something like a national boycott (Turn To Page Four) CRUCES PAPER RAPS PROPOSED MUNICIPAL PLANT Over in Las Cruces. N. M., a movement is under way for a muni cipal power plant. Because of a similar situation in Nogales, the following editorial tak en from tile Rio Grande Farmer of Las Vegas is of interest here: “As the result of a report at a state metting of municipal qfficers, on municipal owned gas and power plants in a city of the state, Mayor Kline felt it his duty to submit the fi gures. to a meeting of local citi zens for their consideration and j to decide whethey such a ven ture would be advisable here, and such a meeting was held : Tuesday evening, at which the mayor submitted the figures and then left the matter open for discussion. “There was no decision reach ed and sentiment was divided on the advisability of such a venture. “At the present and until we have had an opportunity of see ing what the legislature will do toward relieving the few of the total tax burden we are op posed to any further stretching cf the municipal credit, espec ially in view of the act that cur experiences with bond is sues have been unfortunate in the past. “Whether a corporation is formed, or not, the taxable pro perty of Las Cruces is, in the lasi analysis, bound to take the brunt of the debt, if the plant would not return the optimis tic figures claimed for it. “Some point to “tax-free” mu nicipalities, where public utili ties pay all expenses.
