Special Correspondent
Washington, D. C., Sept. 7.—
Alamied by protests jrer the Admin
istration's failure to do anything to
ward relieving unemployment, Pres
identHaridng announces his inten
tion of calling a conference to con
eder the problem. Secretary Hoover
Bays the personnel will be "made ui
so as to represent the country geo
graphically and so far as possible
embrace representatives of the great
employment industries." He later
said the representatives would be
limited to 12 or 1"
Progressives here view the pro
posed conference with considerable
skepticism. They point out that
Secretary of Labor Davis reported
5,735,000 workers out of employ
ment more than a month ago. Con
gress was in session then and could
have taken constructive steps to
remedy the situation. Instead of urg
ing legislation, the Administration
did everything in its power to hurry
the recess.
Since then, however, Republican
congressmen have returned to their
constitutents an dare reporting
widespread distress. Unemployment
Is growing. Deflation of the farmers
Is continuing. There Is resentment
over these facts and growing opposi
tion to the. Administraton program
of loaning $500,000,000 to the rail
roads (when they already owe the

and the proposed retroactive repeal
of the excess profits and reduction of
the higher income surtaxes. This
proposal will virtually give a few war
profiteers $450,000,000 in taxfs
which they already have collected
from the people and throw a cor
respondingly heavier burden upon
the consuming public.
Those who are close to the inside
believe that the industrial confer
ence was called for the express pur
pose oC providing some siigar-coat
,ing for this bitter pill. The confer
encp will be handpeked. and, after
going through the motions nf an "in
vestigation." probably will recom
mend prompt passage of the railroad
loan and the retraactive report of
tHo taxes on the profiteer sas "the
ifirst necessary steps to restore pros
peritv."
The people will be told that these
measures will "revive business" and
I "start the wheels of industry revolv
ing again." Backed by such a recom
I mendation, the bills in question will
I pass Congress with a whoop and the
'public will be duped into believing
that they are needed to get "back to
normalcy." This is only a predic
tion of course, but it will be interest
ing to see how close it comes to the
truth.

pressure to have th» Senate make it

original Fordney revenue bill con
tained this provision, but it was
eliminated after an insurgent upris
ng by western congressmen. A ma
jority of the members of the Senate

vision is very likely to be reinserted

passed along to the public in tlri
form of higher prices. The profiteers
already have collected these taxei
from the people. This means that the
consuming public and small manu
facturers will have to pay just this
much more.
Tax«s Won't lie Lowered
In my letter of two weeks ago I
stated that the wdoiy heralded "'ax
reudcti.ons" of the Fordney bill
"have been accomplished on papor
only by the very obvious juggling of
figures." I then went on to predict
that the Fordney bill would fail to
meet the requirements of tha govern
ment "by several hundred million
dollars" and that at the end of the
year the government would face a
deficit of this amount.
My prediction has Just been con
firmed by Senator Smoot one of the
staunchest of the standpat republi
cans and prominent member of the
Senate finance committee. Senator
Smot admits the Fordney bill will
not raise the revenue required by
this year's budget and he places the
probable deficit at $r00 000.009.
Senator Smoot wants to supply the
deficiency by a sales tax. He has per
sistently advocate dthis unfair sys
tem and has been backed by a well
organized propaganda from the Unit
ed Ctates Chamber of Commerce, cer
tain big Wall Street Interest, the
Hearst press and a section of the
purchasable magazines. The sales
tax was turned down by the house,
but) it is quite possible an attempt
win be made by the senate to offer
it as a substitute for all taxes on pro
fits.
War Profiteers Escape
Owing to the failure of Congress
to enact the necessary legislation,
practically all the war profiteers who
gouged the government to the tune
of hundreds of millions of dollars,
will escape prosecution. The statute
of" limitations, which makes it il
legal to prosecute a crime more than
three years after it has been commit
ted has run against most of these
grafters and they are now perfectly
safe.
Washingtonans on the inside of
affairs smiled three months ago
when Attorney General Daughaty an
nounced he intended to prosecute
the war profiteers. They knew
many big contributors to the Re
publican campaign fund were in*
volved in these frauds and that Sec
retary of the Treasury Mellon was
director of one concern that should
have been proceeded against accord
in# to a Congressional committee.
The vise ones guessed that Mr.
Dragherty probably would be "spoV
en to" and probably would think
wice before starting anything so em
barrassing to the Administration.
Evidently Mr. Daugherty thought
evell times for nary a war profiteer
has been prosecuted ince and now he
could not touch them if he wanted
to.
Ladd Offers Resolution*
Just before Congress recesed, Sen
ator Ladd of North Dakota introduc
ed two resolutions. One called for a
complete investigation of the grain
business by the Federal Trade com
mission and the other authorized an
investment of the unemployment
situation.
Senator Ladd's first resolution
-i\ W

points out that whereas the condi
tion of the export market has been
alleged as one of the reasons for the
domestic decline of the price of
'•wheat, during the past year grain ex
ports have established new records,
and the investigation is demanded to
determine if the wide spread be
tween prices at the farm and prces
paid by the consumer are due to
manipulation of futures.
The second resolution authorizes
the House and Senate committees on
labor to investigate unemployment
and to confer and cooperate with
state and municipal governments to
•the end that public work may be
started to releive the situation par
tially.
Nelson Hill Is Sooi-ed
I Senator Ktiute Nelon of Minnesota
I is getting a good deal of undesirable
notoriety these days because of his
'authorship of the bill that passed
the Senate in the doing days of the
session which authorizes any feder
al judge to issue a warrant for a cit
izen residing in a different state and
to rmove him to where he was indict
'ed without giving a court in his
'home district a chance to pass upon
the evidence. Under this law, men
residing in California, could be in
