(Continued From" money actually put into the generating plantj-but not on a lot of money that never was spent on i! except as a mere matter of bookkeeping. Furthermore, should the government some time wish to acquire one or another, of these plahtfi, naturally it will not want to pay for it on a "padded" basis. -. \TOW, William V. King, the com' mission's chief accountant, had ong- contended that the power cora- anies with which/Uncle Sam did usiness were unconscionable "pad- ders." . ' · . .,.:;: Accountant King's objections were 6 especial nuisance at first, because tie commission's executive secretary, F. E. Bonner, who- practically ran the place then (the t h r e e cabinet members being too busy to give it much attention), pooh-pooh- ed them, and Ac-- countant King while" h'dhest/ h as no reputation^ as a scrapper; but w i t h Solicitor Russell's - advent trouble started, ·and plenty of it.

K.; the balance was represented by stuffing which they refrained from putting- in, pending a more favorable opportunity--so said Senator Norris. _ . ~ * » * · · · TN A fashion, it was Russell, -him* self, who wrought his own undoing;. He argued that cabinet members nave too much work, as cabinet members, to be power commissioners also; insisted that 'there 'Ought to be an independent commission- drafted a bill for one and was largely instrumental in gettinp- it thru congress. e Whereupon President Hoover appointed Dr. George Otis Smith, as chairman, and Marcel Garsaud Claude L. Draper, Frank R Me-' Ninch and. Ralph B. Williamson as associate members of the new board; .and Chairman Smith and Commissioners Garsaud and Draper meeting in hot haste, without waiting--for the'others, as their first act dismissed "Accountant King Secretary Bonner and Solicitor Russell .without benefit of ' clergy--after which they hired King bach, for he had been no formidable pest until Russell gained an influence over him, and Secretary of the Interior Wilbur gave Bonner a better-paid job in the reclamation service. ·' ' - * · · * v ·'., TVUT as for Russell? *-* He remains out in the cold, believe me. · The unfortunate feature of it (if one sympathizes with Russell) is that the Montanan is financially a poor man. He had business difficulties in his home'state before he came to Washington and, by rigorous pinching was paying off his debts out of his meager salary from the government. Now he hasn't even got that. Sound judgment should have warned him not to antagonize the power people. ' It is true enough that the senate is so resentful p.i big dismissal that It is trying to take Chairman Smith's and Commissioners Gar- saud'g and Draper's positions away from them, by means of a lawsuit ~6ut think gf selling apples until the supreme .,court decides -that case-even if the senate wins' it - · . * ' * . » THE power rumpus really dates 1 from about three years back, when Senator Walsh of Montana demanded a senate investigation of the -power "interests." ;Tbe latter preferred an inquiry by the federal trade commission, which it generally was agreed President Coolidge had made over so scientifically that a whitewash brush was the only Implement jt knew how'to handle. After a desperate- struggle the commission did,: 'indeed, get, the "probed' 1 · '. ' .

She gays: "My mile prl was doing fairly well but' 1 noticed she didn't cat like she should and didn't seem to have much energy. · · '"'I wanted to do somethingforhcr, and our doctor recommended California Fig Syrup, so I gave her some, isetti improved so much I wonder why I didn't do something for her stomach and bowels before It relieved her sluggishness, gave her a G°ou appetite ,-md plenty of energy." To point up a child's appetite, increase energy and strength, assist digestion and assimilation, there's nothing more effective than pure vegetable California Fig Syrup. Doctors advise its use to open the bowels ounnc colds and children's diseases; or. whenever bad breath, coated tongue, headaches, listlcssness, etc., warn of constipation. The genuine always bears the name California. So look for that when buying. At all dnig stores. SEVERAL TALK ON PROHIBITION W. C. T. U. of Floyd County Holds Convention in M. E. Church.
