The poor bootleggers! They continue to get skinned in every hour of the session —and yet they were such good friends of some of those who are skinning: them! Maybe this week, and possibly Mot till next week, the House liquor bill will be ready for printing. Members say, what is the harryT The Senate is not even started on final passage of the big tax bill and the House will be loafing till the Senate tax bill comes over to it, anyway, 8. F, No. 1, Tax Bill In committee of the whole the Senate has been wading through n mate of amendments offered to the main tax bill for another week. Still, the main features ot the bill remain intact. It may not take long to pass it when they get back into regular session. The retail sales tax feature still remains and' the big fight will be to substitute the gross income tax . (or gross sales tax) for thi* section.

Senator Hickiln proposes an amendment that will wipe out all gtoperty take* for state purposes, that would be something. And wouldn't it throw the burden and the blame for all property taies directly back on the communities that cause themf Look at Polk county and Des Moines! An old age pension bill has a chance at this session, the Fral- iey*KImberiy bill in the Senate may become a law so that old people who are poor and cannot work may have some other re* course than to starve. Representative flrnee of Poca* hontas coanty says that his county raises and sells more cash corn than any other county in the United States. Mr. Bruce does not consider himself a speaker at all, but when he talk* he say* a mouthfull. Like comfortable twins in a comfortable bed the Senate Democrats and Republicans continue to He. (With apologies to Senator Frailey). • They tried in the House to change the liquor bill so that pri vate interests could sell and profit from the liquor business Then the plan of giving druggists the right to sell liquor on prescription was voted down/The ti tie of the bill is still tbe "Iowa Temperance Act" unless the Senate join* in changing it to the Iowa Liquor Control Act. Quite a lot ot members look with horror upon any advertisini of tbe liquor business. Under a state control plan it would be ju*t a* well without. People would get their tips from the radio and then sneak up on the liquor stores in tbe night and take their medicine without *»°w|ng,whether It wa* real.Old rpropoie*' an amendment to the r liquor bill that will permit town* and cities to hold elections ^and decide b'y a majority whether they want state* liquor stores or not. .Queer, the difference on this point among most intelligent and worthy people. Some say such a provision would cause confusion end trouble, and place bootleggers |n the saddle again. Others say the state has no right to foist liquor stores and' dealers upon towns and cities that do not want them, Take yonr choice. Rmnpr has it that the Democratic members of the House are going into caucus to pjan and back a state on,the liquor hill, « they do, there will be results, and wb,at? A party caucug of members is considered binding on all members who attend it, There are 74 Democrats to 34 Republicans in tbe House, Still an even bet on adjournment date, Might celebrate it on ground bog day, WHAT BANKING WENT THROUGH HASTINGS IB its font career baa been eofepened to withstand fcany sefions shoe**, tart ft fa* into entangle fflefltofttswbole bistort since the fenefal break- Sown Of tfttQM In 1929.

General business failures, agricultural stagnation, income losses, capital tosses, inabilities to meet debts and therefore Inabilities ot banker* to pay back depositors when loans were not paid, were the reasons, in most instances, tor the bank failures, No profession, no department of life Is without its weaker elements, but had proper consideration been given to the relatively few instances In banking, had exaggerated and startling headlines been kept in true proportion, bad banking not been need as a target for political self- seeking and with vote-seeking mc- tit eg, bad , unfounded rumors not been spread the people's confidence night have been retained and far less would have been their losses. There were factors in our banking experience which every earnest banker deplores — factors which many bad worked yean to eliminate, which it was fearfully recog- nised would aggravate any difficult days wh loh might arise. One of the worst of these was due to political regulation which chartered many banks that should never bavo been. That there hare v been incompetence and dishonesty In banking Is admitted. That the instances that did occur were used grossly to increase fear in the .public mind, we affirm. We shall continue to strive (or higher attainments in our profession and etrive for laws that require competence and ability in management That we cannot legislate honesty and unselfishness into either a banker or a borrower must be conceded, but dishonesty, , wherever found, should be punished.

I Our people must be brought to realize that tbe welfare of our country depends upon its banking system, that the strength of the bank, ing sye^em depends upon the pub-, lie's faith and understanding, that the majority of banks, because of faitn*ul service rendered, even through tbe whole of this general breakdown, bad the right to expect the people'* trust and confidence, In every great catastrophe, no matter what its nature, no matter what its cause, someone must,be Qrueiflea, The banker was this time selected. Jn tbe late 9Q's, political agitation started a tirade against railroads, Same railroads may have done reprehensible things, but tbe agitation became so general and so violent as almost to destroy one of the fundamental factors In tbe progress of a county, Today {he same tWng has beeu done to the banker^ m spite el all that has hap< 1, tta fact remains that even of the banks watch, failed are - out Jnflsitf ly better than. in. else. Harvey Car* Ha* Leg Broken Harvey W. Gary, one of the prominent farmers northwest of Hastings, met with a bad accident Sunday evening. He fell from his hay mow striking with' such manner a* to fracture his left leg above the ankle. He was taken to the office of Drs. Kline & Kline at Malvern where an x- ray showed that both bones were fractured and the ankle dislocated. They reduced the fracture and he is getting along as well as possible but it is a bad break and will lay him up for some time.

Mill f*w ds Crouw home, a tbe Congress of tfte TJnlted States I« again in session. Perhaps the nation was a bit surprised bat pleased a* were the members of the two houses when Franklin I). Roosevelt notified them he would deliver his address In person. At the appointed hour with the Members assembled In their places Henry T. Ralney In his naturally dignified manner, his hair Whiter than ever, mounted the Speaker's station, lifted the gavel and as it struck its first note the regular session of the 73rd Congress began Its work. Joe Bnrns, the Democratic floor leader from Tennessee with Lincoln like figure and characteristics, garbed In bin frock coat took command of the situation on the floor and put the House through the preliminaries. | During the process the attention of the House was attracted to a stir In the galleries. Mrs. Roosevelt. Mrs. Dall. SIstie and BttzEle were entering. They were greeted with enthusiastic applause from both sides of tho chamber and the galleries. A few moments later the House recessed to await the arrival of the President. It reconvened at 1:30. Members of the Senate filed into the chamber. They were foi- lowed In n few moments by the Cabinet. A few tense moments followed. The attention of every individual In the chamber was suddenly riveted to the door at the Speaker's right. President Roosevelt had appeared with his son, James, and was walking to his place on the dais. He was greeted with thunderous applause and cheering that carried on for several minutes until a nod from the Chief Executive silenced it and permitted htm to begin his remarks. What he said will bo a matter of common knowledge long before these words go into print. •It remains for me to recount that the Impression upon the Congress was favorable. The following day saw the immediate introduction and constd- eratlon of a bill to place a-tax- on liquor, the same to come to a vote on Friday of this week with no possibility,. of it* falling to pass.
