"this was made manifest when Senator Lodge, U. spokesman of the administration, in duced Senator Harrison of Missis- Isippi to withdraw his amendment to the bill appropriating funds for con ference which provided for full pub licity of all proceedings. Sen.itor Lodge said the amendment was "wholly out of place and futile ba manners." He added that "open dip ped that "it is the invariable practice lomacy" was impractical «'id assert of legislative bodies to frame im portant measures bemnd closed doors." Senator Borah, author of the bill instructing the President to call the conference, vigorously attacked the evident intention to shroud the pro- menace to the worId rmany." the treaty the meetings were held in the open. the foreign relation to that the whole conference is a as cna rxuau heartv camouflage to throw a smoke screen committee, has given it nis nearcy ... .... sanction. The document has only been shown to members of this com mittee, but it provides that Germany accept fell obligations to the United States enumerated in the Treaty Versailles that property of German citizens now in the hands of the alien property custodian remain in custody until claims istic policv Senator LaFollette, Stanley and Pittman have brought in a minority report opposing the $500,000,000 loan to the raolroads contemplated by' the Townsend bill. The report gives seven reasons why the loan should not be passed. The first is that it was reported after a refusal to hear the testimony of critics. The second is it would put the govern ment in the highly speculative busi ness of dealing with railroad secur ities. The third reason joints out the government would lose hundreds of millions of dollars as a result of rhe transaction. The bill provides the government must accept the secur ities on a 6 per cent basis, whereas the best securities are on a seven per cent basis. This means the govern ment and the railroads against each or sell them at a loss. The fourth rea son declares the government is not legally or morally bound to make the loan and that tin c'ims of tae gov ment nd the railroads against each other should be set off. The fifth reason asserts that if the War Fi nance corporation takes over the railroads securities it will have no money left for farm credits. The six th reason says railroad earnings and credits are slowly improving and no legislation of this sort is needed. The seventh reason points out that dur ing the past 18 months the govern ment has advanced the railroads $1, 376,403,024 and that the people should not be burdened with taxes to embark upon this "highly specu lative ventures." The minority report makes out a very strong case against the railroad loan and Will iam G. McDoo, former director gen eral of railroads under government control, has also declared himself against it. A lively fight will be pre cipitated when congress reassembles, for President Harding has set his heart on this measure and will en deavor to force it through despite all opposition. Shipping Board Under Fire The United States Shipping Board is under fire again and its critics have plenty of ammunitipn. This de partment which has squandered and itolen nearly three fillion dollars of the people's money does not seem to have changed its ways much under new management. Two hundred ships management. Two hundred ships which cost the government more than (200,000 each were recently ^sold tor $2,100 apiece and several senators hare exposed the fact that many "lame duck" RepnK'can poli ticians are being given soft snaps on the government payroll. Some of them get as high as $25,000 a year, the government la also continuing tta policy„of making contracts ander terms that practically constitute «n invitation to dotraod the government, •verrbody in WMhlngton knows the •hipping t«ar4 reeka with graft, but the ^Democrats 4* aot 'want an in iiMiiii lty voald reflect ob Wilson and the Republicans op *oe*» Mft* JMpiRft toow coii are Just aa bad aiaee the change of 3* ati-"— the looting goee merrily SISSETON WEEKLY STANDARD today and bl'ained this on the hidden intrigues of few diploma ts. He predicted the in the same disappointment unless over a new league of nations. It is very doubtful indeed whether any material reduction of armaments ^rill be agreed upon. Senator Lodge who has been appointed as one of this nation's representatives, al ready has gone on record as saying the United States has reduced its of American navy beyond the safety point. It is on and people wonder why taxes are high. I/Kollette Is Recompensed IM'cshh'iit Gets Dye Kmbargo The indefensible embargo on dyes, which I wrote about last week as being temporarily defeated, was finally put through the senate by the active interposition of President Harding. This gives the American trust an absolute monopoly of the market and permits it to charge ex tortionate prices for inferior goods. Reserve Boanl Flayed Again J. C. Wanamaker, president of the American Cotton Growers' associa tion, Is the latest farm producer to accuse the federal reserve banking board of playing Wall Street's game. Mr. Wanamaker appeared before the committee on agricultural inquiry last week and scored the governors of the reserve system for their dis crimination against the farmers. He demanded the removal of the pres ent board and asked that a new board of 12 members be created on which there should be farmers and business men as well as bankers. There is a growing demand for re form in the Federal reserve system and a determined fight to make it •more representative of the people and legg respons jve t0 the narrowly selfish needs of Wall Street will be made when Congress re-convenes.
