SENATOR CAPPER SOUNDS WARNMG INFARMPROBLEM Sectional Disparity Will Hamper Business in East, He Says Philadelphia, Nov. 30. (AP»— Sounding a warning against a continuance of the "sectional disparity" of the East and AVest lest .the whole United States becomes economically imperilled. Senator Arthur Capper, of Kansas, in an address here today, extended a plea fdr congressional alleviation of the ills of the agricultural western region. He spoke at a luncheoii of the Rotary club. •There are two possible methods of relief for the present condition, in the AVest," Senator Capper said. "Either lower the tariff on what the farmer buys, so he can get the bnefit of lower prices on goods made in Europe; or extend the aid of the government in disposing of our surplus farm products abroad so that the excess will not disastrously depress the home market." There is no hatred among the farmers of the Weat against the Industrial East and Its "present era of prosperity," the senator asserted. Rather, he .said, the AVest wants a "square deal" from congress in the way of bringiiiB the c .7untry to "an economical level, either up or down. "The West wants to raise its level to that of the prosperous East. It has no desire to depress the business of the East by bringing down commodity prices. "The West haa waited as patiently as possible for the same degree of legislative assistance and relief that the .government nearly always has extended to the industrial East. But the AVest cannot wait forever." The speaker claimed eastern Industry must depend to a?large degree on tlie purchasing power of the AVest. and added: "Eastern prosperity will eventually sag unless the buying power of the .Aliddlc AVest Is substantially iucrcased through economic justice j to the farmer, whose dollar is! smaller than that of any other class of workers. alongj the Dueister, which forms the JRussian-Rumanian botindary line, confirms Jin large measure ren- cent ^dispatches to the Associated Press; from^ Bucharestv citing .as account of fighting in'the. Ukraine reported by the Rumanian' newspa-. per Dimineata. Soviet reinforceuieiit^ which' have arrived in the Ukraine in the past'two weeks turned the tide Of the i-evolutjohary movement and after a series of clashes in Various towns the revolt was crushed'out In a bloody disaster for the revo-_ Intionaries. r Soviet officials have made denial' of any extensive revolt in the Ukraine, specifically denying any lighting at Kam^netz-Podolsk, but tbe sound of prolonged firing beyond the Ukrainian hills can be heard daily from the Rumanian side of the frontier, the dispatch, says. Tile towns affected by the revolutionary movement were stated to be Tiraspol. .Aloghilcu'. Kaiqenetz-' Podolsk and smaller villages. Thie revolutionists obtained possession of Tiraspol. Moghileu and Kanleil- etz-Podolsk, killing many S(^et officials, but were driven out after a few days when^ Sovie'l forces retook the town. • Refugees who succeeded I crossing the border from in the Ukraine Into Bessarabia told the times correspondent of tbe burning of several villages and the. destruction of crops during the revolutionary fighting. The revolt. |the dispatch says had its inception in the reappearance of government agents, and- troops in the district east of Moghi­ leu as tax collectors. This arpn^se^ .the JMasants^ who killed tov agents an da number of soldiers. More agents and troops appeared soon afterward. bumed_ two yit- lages and proceeded ' eastwiird along the Dneister. Their path, the dispatch says, was marked by frequent fighting and pillaging, and in two villages all the Inhabitants: about 00. were killed. The troops eventually reached dessa; where they were reinforced and then returned to the scene of the revolt. Meanwhile a few of the larger towns were taken by the, revolutionists who, either killed or imprisoned the governmeiit reiH - resentativeS. AVhen Kanenetz-PO-' dolsk was captured all the loya? troops were massacred aiid the .flag of the revolutionists was flown for. four days before Soviet troops re-_ captured the place by surprise. 1\ was estimated that there were 1,600. dead lying in the streets after tbe fight. - . ; The dispatch adds that confirmation was obtained of the mutiny. of a Black Sea warship, that the res^ sel was e\<entually captured, and its crew executed. , W.C.1U.
