A defi cit of mere than three billion dollars will show on the books of the govern ment on June 30, 1929, the close of the current fiscal year, Secretary of the Treasury Glass estimated in his annual report to congrcsa. . , . A deficit a one and one half bill ions looms tot the next fiscal year, Glass also estimated. All the figures given by Glass are estimated of conditions which, ac cording to knowledge now at hand, will prevail six months and a year and a half hence. Congress, how ever, will use them in revampting the tax lawd as suggested in President Wilson's message and in pairing ap propriations. j Starting with a balance of $1002, 732,042 in the treasury at the close of business on June 30, 1919, Gla' figures are summarized as follows: Current Fiscal Year. Expenditures $11,476,627,219 Receipts 7,318,006,634 Deficit close year.. 3,155,888,543 Next Fiscal Year. Expenditures .... $3,973,797,985 Receipts . 5,620,350,000 Deficit close year'.. 1,509,336,528 Glass tagged as "incomplete" all items of expenditure since congress may appropriate additional millions. The deficit as estimated may be1 in-; creased at a time when may citizens complain of taxes as unjustly burden some. " f Receipts estimated by Glass are on the basis of the war tax law under which taxes will be collected for the remainder of the current fiscal year unless congress makes swift changes. These laws, Glass showed in the re port, enabled this government to meet more than 43 . per cent of its war ex penditures out of current receipts. Among other things shown in the re port are that: ' Spanish-American war bonds total ing $936,000 still are outstanding: The world war cost the United States $26,007,000,000, exclusive of the loans to the allies totaling $9, 406,000,000. The gross public debt was $26,210, 530,000 at the close of business Oct. 31, of which $910,684,987.44 was from sale of war savings certificates and $20,443,314,359 from Liberty Bonds and Victory notes. , The funded war debt will be com pletely retired in 25 years under the cumulative sinking fund act of March 3, 1919. Gold coin and bullion in the United States totaled $2,872,525,066 Nov.l, or. "about one third of the world's monetary stock." ' V Rising costs of labor and material have rendered gold mining progress ively less and less profitable, and de creased production. ( ; Glass indicated reduction of tax ation is not to be thought of now. He said : ''.. ,,;v': ; ,( p f "Though any appreciable reduct ion in the amount of the revenues from taxation is not to be, thought of during the fiscal year, when the gov ernment's current disbursements will exceed its current receipts, and when the congress is considering various measures carrying vast additional ap1 propriations, it is, I believe, the duty of the congress to study the incidence of taxation with a review to revision of the revenue act on lines which will provide necessary revenue from a minimum of inconvenience and in justice." Revision, Glass urged, should be along a line to prevent persons with large incomes dodging federal taxes by making vast investments in ex empted municipal bonds. He also urged repeal of the excess profit tax. For the current fiscal year Glasfi estimated internal revenue receipts at $4,990,000,000, of which income and profit taxes are expected to fur nish $3,750,000,000. Other receipts, classed as "ordinary" are: . Customs $725,000,000, now nearing the "pre war mark of $300,000,000; sale of j public lands $1,250,000; and miscel-, laneous sources $834,000,000." ; The Panama canal is expected to net the government $7,200,000 in tolls but the estimated expenditures for it are put at $15,284,000. The public debt is counted on to produce receipts totaling $1,210,556, 634 from the deferred payments on Liberty bonds and war savings cer tificates. Under estimated expenditures for the current fiscal year, Glass included these items: Civil establishment, $2,234,375,- 892; war department $1,704,657,000 as against more than $9,000,000,000 for last year; naval establishment $689,875,000 and naval buildings $158,000,000; interest on the public debt $1,052,300,000. Under "spec ial expenditures" Glass estimated $700,000,000 for the purchase of ob- gations of foreign governments. For last yar this item was more than $3,400,000,000. South Affected , by Curtailment Passenger Trains ATLANTA, Dec. 8. General cur tailment of passenger train service throughout the southern region of the United States railroad administra tion, affective at 12:01 a. m. Tues day, was announced last night at headquarters hore. No specific re duction was announced, it being left to each federal manager to take off a smany trains as may be spared without serious inconvenience to the public. ! In addition to taking off passenger trains it was announced that federal managers will (continue many par lor, club and sleeping cars which add to the weight of trains and increase consumption of coal. No special trains of any kind will be operated in the southern region during the coal crisis. i No reduction in freight service is 'ontemplated in the southern region, it was said, because paucity of coal cargoes and a constant shutting down of many industries already has great) I ly reduced freight haulage. Regard ing the order to reduce passenger train service, the anriou cement from the regional director's offica said that "there has been no attempt to arbi trarily reduce service on a percent age basis in the region because con--ditions vary on different roads and in different sections to such an ex-, tent that an order of this kind would result in an unnecessary inconveni ence to the public in some places and at the same time fail to bring about the greatest practicable curtailment in others."

American taurists are being urged by the government to come to Franc?. . Hundreds of thousands of them, possibly a million, are expected to bring millions of dol lars that will help to rebuild France, Aside from the idea of cementing the two nations' friendship through better acquaintance, the tourist movement is regarded by those interested as a great new business enterprise imme diately and immensely profitable and one that will grow. Incidentally, it is said, the coming of Americans who can afford European travel at its present cost will aid in the various forms of foreign financial aid France is seeking. A government department called the national office of touring was es tablished recently to engineer a pub licity campaign for foreign visitors and to supervise service bureaus to make travel pleasant and to prevent overcharging. An unofficial corpora tion supported by railroads, hotels, travel agencies and others who profit by touring has been organized. It is the French Touring company. Through it agents are being sent to the United States and elsewhere. Americans will be offered French railroad tickets, travel programs and similar informa tion. Newspapers have not been enthu siastic over the plan. The Excelsior said "the public fears the economic disturbances their coming might cause" in referring to the proposed visit of the much talked of "million Americans." It explains that "every thing is already beyond reach in price and there is no room in the hotels. What will conditions be when it be comes necessary to ldoge and feed these new guests who do not look at the cost of things?" To remedy such conditions, the governmental agency suggests that when heavy travel beglna in April conditiono will be more nearly nor mal. A definite plan to reserve rooms for coming tourists has been inaugurated already. All hotels in France, numbering about 25,000, have been asked to submit tlieir rates and to pledge themselves not to charge more in the case of the government conducted travellers. The lodging difficulties and the high cost of everything is recognized by all but it in believed a great flood of travel v.ill come ?n spif.e of the cost. The government's ajm Is to see that travelers are note harged more than the information agencies esti mate and that they are given bencitt of advice and aid in making their stay in France entertaining. Should Be Quarantined. Many physicians believe that any one who has a bad cold should be completely isolated to prevent other members of the family and associates from contracting the disease, as colds are about as catchy as measles. One thing sure the sooner one rids him self of a cold the less the danger, and you will look a good while before you find a better medicine than Chamber lain's Cough Remedy to aid you in curing a cold.
