(Special Correspondent of The.Newi .: . Scimitar,) WASHINGTON, Dec, 18. Congress would raise false hopes by the passage of resolutions promising financial- relief to the farmer, in the opinion of officials in the executive branch of the government. The senate 'has. 'Just passed a resolution directing the secretary of the treas ury to revive the war finance cor poration and expressing to the fed eral reserve board the onlnlnn that - liberal credits shbuld be extended the larmers or me country. This action of the senate' proba bly win followed by a favorable vote in the' house and then, congress will hav discharged Its obligation to the farmers who have been clam oring;' for help as prices declined. But the truth, is the resolution will be practically ignored and will not aid the situation and the farmer who relies on it Is apt to be in a worse situation than th,e; one who doesn't. Bank Head Stands Pat. Investigation of the executive of fices of the, government reveals the fact, for instance. that Governor Harding of the federal reserve board, will stand -pat and will .not regard the, opinion expressed in the senate resolution as mandatory. If jcon gress wants anything, done, it must direct the federal reserve board to do it by amending the federal re serve act. And if it does that, it would not be surprising $o see the federal reserve board. go to pieces al together by the prompt resignations of several of ito members. Either the federal reserve board will act for the best interests of the country ac cording to JtW , best banking judg ment, or thefcderal reserve system will become the football of 'congres sional politics. That's- the critical view of the situation as it has de veloped in executive quarters in the last few days. Some inkling of the seriousness with which members of, the federal reserve board regarded the Invasion of their prerogatives reached thu senate, for the proposal to limit the discount rate to 5 per cent was voted down after it was learned what a mischievous effect the action might have had on the entire bank ing system., Resolution Toothless. !,. So far aa the - federal reserve board Is 'concerned, the teeth were taken out Of the resolution when the proposal was changed 'from a "di rection" to the expression of an opin ion. Governor Harding, has indicated in hi testimony before congress ex actly how he views the proposal, to extend further credits o the agrleuU tural interests and the, action of the' senate has not changed hit mind. Mr. Harding is to be governor of the I' federal reserve board ., until Au gust, 1922, and though ho comes from the South, which has been in sistent that cotton growers be pro tected by the extension-pf credits, he is acting independently of any' po litical Influences in the matter. Thfi fact that Senator Carter Glass, of Virginia, a Democrat and ? former secretary of the treasury, as well as Senator George McLean. Republican, chairman of the senate -'committee on banking and currency, vigorous ly opposed the action of the senate is proof of the nonpartisan charac ter of the opposition to the Gronna Norris proposal. Officials fear that for a day or two the market might hold as relief is promised by con gress, but that when those who are holding their, goods finally find out that they can't expect financial aid the bottom will drop still further and the revulsion of feeling will be even greater f cniiist ' those who raised false hoT)v :. , ; . ' Wilson May Veto." ,; - As for the secretary of the treas ury and the War Finance corpora tion, the direction of congress that It be received will be heeded if the, resolution passes both houses. Ther Is, of course, a chance that a presi dential veto may be " interposed, as Mr. Houston's 'word wth President. Wilson is very potent. However, even if the resolution should become law over a veto, the chance for e lief is stlllsdependent upon. the per sonnel of th War Finance corpora-' tion, the members of which are se lected by the president. There are four members of the board besides the secretary, of the treasury and- at present there are two vacancies. Sup posing Mr. DVilson appointed two Democrats, would tho senate confirm them for four-year terms or would the senate feel that Wairen Hard ing ought to have tlie chance to nam these nW members? Delay woirM. of course, nullify the purpose of the, resolution, as it seems to be the uni versal opinion in executive ouarters that the present emergency will come to an end after New Years. More over, the' regulations' of the War Finance corporation are made by the corporation ltBelf. lt can demand all sorts of security and practically de cline to extend nid except as It pleases. Furthermore, the secretary of the treasury would be obliged to go into the open market and borrow I money to give tflte War Finance cor- ' poratlon. U. It , is being whispered about the capltol that some of the men .'who something to assist the farmers." ' Senator SinithA declared there was as much or more profiteering today "in dollars," as there had been a year ago in 'commodities," although ho word of criticism w heard, lie quoted Secretary Meredith to he effect that the farmers already had lost more than $3,000,000,000 this year through shrinkage in the values of their products. 4 .(' Car Paralysed By Hard Cider: Can't , 1 Move From Yardsk (Special to 'The New Scimitar.)
