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

“As the result of a report at

cur experiences with bond is

the past.

formed, or not, the taxable pro
