HUTCHINSON, KANSAS, WEDNESa-VV:'. DECEMBER 3,~1924 NU. I. : . 1. ALL MUST BEAR BRUNT IF U.S. AGAIN FIGHTS Equal Distribution of Burden Advocated By Davis. TO END PROFITEERING Drafting of Butinest and Labor as Well at Fighting Men to Come, New York, Dec. 3,—Dwlght F. Davis, assistant secretary' ot war, In a speech prepared for delivery today at a session on national defense, in connection with the annual meeting ot the American Society of Mechanical engineers, declared In the future "tho burdens ot war must bo equally distributed." "If we are ever forced Into war." Mr, Davis said, "the burdens of war must be equally distributed. Industry, capitalist and laborer, civilian, as well ns soldier, each must do his appointed part in the national defense. Wo ara firmly determined that If this country is ever engaged In another war, there must bo no slackers and no profiteers. Must Be Prepared. "The mere task of commuting the requirements in finished products is a large one," ho assorted, "although it is but tho first and simplest step In tho problem. "After these requirements have been computed, they must bo translated Into tormH intelligible to Industry, we must know what they mean In terms of machine tools, gauges, shop equipment, pnwor, labor transportation nnd everything else that undustry Is to be called upon to furnish to meet our demands. "The many mouths which wero lost during the world war in our industrial efforts speaks eloquently for the necessity of planning in peace time for our organization in national defense. Lack of Preparedness Shown. "If tho war department had laid down a definite program 'before our entry Into tho world wnr nnd had computed approximately Its munitions requirement under tho program," Mr. Davis said, "our effcctlvo entry into the European conflict would have, been speeded up by months, with a consequent wiring--in- lives and money that would have been enormous." In ono item iJono, that ot leather goods, Mr. Davis estimated tho savings of some $200,000,000 could have been made. Estimate Requirements, To further tlto plans ot national preparedness, Mr. Davis announced the war department has up- pointed 15 commodity committees to which have been assigned the task or getting together tho total requirements of all Bupply branch- for certain assigned commodities. In event ot war, ho suld,' these commodity oxpertB would be called to the colors to carry on tho work they had been doing daring peace time.

Republican lender; Pepper, Republican, Pennsy'ranli; and McKlnley, Republican, Illinois, relative yj t£» KOfcriuo for the Washington, Dee. 8.—The full tn.U ot Pros'.dtnt Cooildge's message, read to congress today, follow*; : The present state of tho Union, upon which it Is customary tor tho President to report to the Congress tinder the provisions of the Constitution, Is such that it may ho regarded with encouragement and satisfaction by every American. Our country Is almost nnlquo In its ability to discharge fully and promptly all its obligations at liome and abroad, and provide for all its Inhabitants an Increase in material rosourcoB, in Intellectual vigor and In moral power. The Nation holds n position unsurpassed In nil former human experience. This does not mean that wo do not have any problems. It is elemontary that tho' Increasing breadth ot our experience necessarily Increases the problems ot our national lifo. Uut it does mean that !{ wo will but apply ourselves Industriously and honestly, wo have ampla powers with which to meet our problems and provide tor their speedy solution. I do not profess that we can secure an era of perfection in human existence, but wo can provide an era ot peace and prosperity, attended with freedom and justice and made more and moro satisfying by tho ministrations ot tho charities and humanities ot life. Economy and Tax Reduction, Our domestic probUrr .3 aro for the most part economic. Wo have our enormous debt to pay, and we are paying it. We have tlio high cost of government to diminish, and we are diminishing it. "Wo have a hoavy burden ot taxation to reduce, and wo aro reducing it. Hut while remarkable progress has been made in these directions, the work Is yet far from accomplished. Wo still owo over 21,000,000,000, the cost ot the National Government is still about $3,500,000,000, and tho national taxes still amount to about $27 for each ono ot our Inhabitants. Thoro yet exists this enormous field for the application o£ economy. In my opinion the Government can do more to remedy tho economic Ills of the people by a system of rigid economy in public expenditure than can be accomplished through uny other action. The casts of our national and local gov- ornineuts copiblned now atanfl at a sum close to $100 for each inhabitant of the land. A little leas than one-third of this Is represented by national expenditure, and a litllo more than two-thirds by local expenditure. It is an ominous tact that only the National Government Is reducing Its debt. Others are Increasing theirs at about $l,0w),- 000.000 each year, Tho degression that overtook business, the disaster experienced in ugriculture, ilie lack of employment and tho terrific BhrlnkuRo of all yalues which our country experienced in a most acute form in 1920, resulted in no small measure from the prohibitive taxes which were then levied on all productive effort. Tho establishment of a Nystem ot drastic economy in public expenditure, which has enabled us to pay off about one-fifth of the national debt since 1019, and almost cut in two tho national tax burden since 1021, has been one of tho main causes In reestablishing a prosperity which has come to include within its benefits almost every ono of our Inhabitants. Economy reaches everywhere. It carries a blessing to everybody. All Bear Government Cost, The fallacy of II i claim that the costs ot government are borne by the rich and those who make a direct contribution to the National Treasury can not bo too often exposed. No system has been do- visde, I do uot think any system could ' i devised, under which any person living lu this country could escapo being affected by the cost ot our government. It has a direct effect both upon tho rate and the purchasing power of wogos. It is felt In the price of thosn prlnio necessities of exist- once, food, clothing, fuel and shelter. It would appear to bo elementary that tho more tho government expends tho moro it must require every producer to contribute out ot his production to the Public Treasury, and the less ho will have, tor his own benefit. The continuing costs of public administration can be met in only one way—by tho work ot the people. Tho higher they become, the more the people inust work for the Gov. eminent. Tho less they are, the more the peoplo can work for themselves. The present estimated margin between public receipts and expenditures tor this fiscal year Is very small. Perhaps the most Important work that this Bession of tho Congress can do is to continue a policy ot economy and further reduce the cost of government, In order that we may havo a reduction of taxes for the next fiscal year. Nothing is moro likely to producu that public confidence wh'ch is the forerunner and the mainstay of prosperity, encourage and enlarge business opportunity with ample opportunity for employment at good wages, provide a larger market for agricultural products, and put our country In a stronger position to be able to meet tho' world competition In trade, than a continulns policy ot economy. Of course necessary costs mint he m<:i, proper rune- lions of I ho Government performed, and constant Investments for capltul no-mint and reproductive effort must be carried on by oud various departments. But tho poppla jau*t know Uut JJjeir, Gov­ ernment is placing upon them no unnecessary burden. Taxes, Everyone desires a reduction of luxes, and thoro is a groat prepon- dsrnnco of sentiment In favor ot taxation reform. When I approved the present tax law, I stated publicly that I did so in spite of certain provisions which 1 believed unwiso and harmful. Ono of the most glaring of theso was the making public of tho amounts assessed against different Income-tax payers. Although that damage has now ocen done, I believe its continuation to bo detrimental to the public welfare nnd bound to decrease public, revenues, so that it ought to be repealed. Anybody can reduce taxes, but it is not so easy to etand In the gup and reslot tho passage of Increasing appropriation bills which would make tax reduction impossible. It will be very easy to mens- uro the Btrength of tho attachment to reduced taxation by ths power with which increased appropriations aro resisted. It nt'tho close of tho present session the Congress has kept within tho budget which 1 propose to present, It will then be possible to havo a moderate amount ot tax reduction and all tho tax reform that tho Congress may wish for during tlio nixt fiscal year. The country is now foellng tho direct stimulus which came from tho passage ot tho last revenue bill, and under the assur- auco of a reasonablo system of taxation there Is every prospect of an era ot prosperity of 'unprecedented proportions. But it would be Idle to expect any such results unless business can continue free from excess profits taxation and be accorded a system ot surtaxes at rutes which have for their object not the punishment of success or the discouragement ot business, hut thn production ot the greatest amount of revenue from large incomes. I am convinced that the larger incomes of the country would actually yield more revenue I D the Government If tho basis of taxation were scientifically revised downward. Moreover the effect o[ tho present method of this taxation is to Increase the cost of interest on productive enterprise and to iucrcaso tho burden ot rent. It is altogether likely that such reduction would so encourage and stimulate Investment that •J.*' would firmly establish our country in the economic leadership ot the world. Waterways. Meantime our Internal development should go on. Provision should bo luado for flood control of such rivers as the Mississippi and tho Colorado, and for the opening up of our Inland waterways to commerce, Consideration Is due to the project of better navigation from tho Great Lakes to the Gulf, livery effort is being made to promote an agreement with Canada to build tho St. Lawrence waterway. There are pending beforo the Congress bills for further development of the Mississippi Basin, for tho taking over of the Capo Cod Canal in accordance with the moral obligation which seems to have been incurred during tho war, nnd for the improvement ot harbors on both the Pacific and the Atlantic coasts. While this last should be dlvosted of some ot Its projects and wo must proceed slowly, these bills In geuoral have my approval. Such works are productive of wealth nnd in tho long run tend to a reduction ot the tax burden. Reclamation. Our country has a well-defined policy ot reclamation established under statutory authority. This policy should be continued and made a self-sustaining activity administered in a manner that will meet local requirements and bring our arid lands into a profitable stute ot cultivation ns fast as there is a market for their products. Legislation Is pending based on report of tho Fact Finding Commission for tho proper relief of thoso needing extension ot tlmo in which to meut their payments on irrigated land, and for additional amendments and reforms of our reclamation laws, which are all exceedingly important and should bo enacted at once. Agriculture. No more important development has taken place In tho last year than the beglunntg of a restoration ot agriculture to a pros- porous condition. We must permit no division of classes in this country, with one occupation striving to secure advantage over another. Each must proceed under open opportunities and with a fair prospect ot economic equality. Tlio Government can not successfully Insure prosperity or fix prices by legislative flat. Every bus'ness has Its risk and Its times of depression. It is well known that In tho long run there will be a more oven working out ot economic laws than when tho Government under takes the artificial support ot markets and industries. Still wo can so order our affairs, so protect our own people from foreign com pell tion, so urranso our national nuances, so administer our monetary system, so provide for tho exten sion of credits, so Improve meth ods of distribution, as to provide a better working machinery for the transaction of the business of the Nation with tho least possible friction and loss. Tho Government has been constantly Increasing it^ efforts in those directions Tor tin; r.'dlcf nnd permanent tstalilisli- j iiient of acricuiturc on a sminil ami 1 eijnnl basis with other hu.siiiei.-i.

APPLAUSE IN THE HOUSE President's Utterances Meet Calm, Reception in Senate, However. Washington, Dec. ,1. —Congress received President. Cooildge's annual message today Immediately upon convening and after listening to its reading plunged Into the sorlous work of the session. With the exception of tho iwo years Woodrow Wilson was ill in tlio whlto house, this was tho first, tlmo since 1013 that tho executive had not delivered his annual communication in person. It was transmitted hy messenger and road separately in the two houses. No Hope for Some Proposals. Congressional leaders generally hold out little hope for the translation of many ot tho president's proposals Into lnw before this congress dies March 4. Their views already have been given to the executive at conferences, the latest of which was held early today between tho president unil Senator Curtis, -Kansas, the Republican sennte leader, and Senator Pepper, Republican, Pennsylvania. A number of tho proposals advanced by Mr. Coolidge nre covered by bills which camo over from the last, session. Thoro aro other peud- ins measures to which tlie president voiced disapproval, chief among them being Senator LuFol- letto's bill to change tho basis of valuation of the railroads. Crowd More Attentive. Tho reading ot the message In the two houses was simultaneous There were compartively large crowds in the galleries who appeared to give closer attention to the president's recommendations than did tho members of the houBo and senate. As the reading weut forward there were private conferences on tho floors by groups ot senators and representatives. Much ot the time, however, the law makers •followed the reading closely, especially that, relating to the subjects' of taxation, agriculture and Musclo Shoals. Just bofore the message arrived the house steering committee hud mapped out a legislative program providing for passage by the house before tho Christmas recess of nt least .three of Ibo dozen annual supply bills. To Crowd Appropriations. Tentative plans of the leaders call for a holiday recess during Christmas week and for a one day layoff at New Years. Belief wus expressed that if this program were adhered to and appropriation hills given right ot way throughout the session, all of them will be in the bands ot the president be­ foro March 4. The Interior department appropriation bill, first of tho supply bills to ho drafted, was taken up today by the house. Applause In House. « The reading ot tho presidential message required mora than an hour. In contrast to the occasions when presidents havo appeared in person, there wus not a ripple of applause in the senate from the beginning to tho end of the reading. in the house, however, the president's opposition to publication of income tax returns -was applauded, ns was his statement opposing cancellation of war debts. Both Democrats and Republicans joined In the hnndclnpplng whon tho clerk read that portion ot the message culling attention to the necessity ot conserving- the navy's oil supply. it tp + * .9, <•> -p ^ <-, A, i.

BANKER'S DEATH FOUND NATURAL Nothing to Substantiate Initial Murder Theory, Officials Conclude. San Ueruardlne, Calif.. Dec. — William R. Fee, San Gabriel bank prHSlilont, whose body was found several days ago In the San Bernardino mountains, fifty feet from a cabin occupied by Miss Mary Watkins, 26, wso said she was a close friend of the banker, died a nntural death, according to a unanimous agreement, readied last night by author!, The belated report was based on sclentltk* conclusions rather than ovideuco submitted to a coroner's Jury which found that Fee died from a blow inflicted by persons unknown. What was first, thought to be human blood smeared on a pair of pruniuig shears round In Mr. Fee's hand at the time ot Ills death, proved to bo ru6t, ,1. Clark Sellers, internationally known criminologist working on thn case, snlrl. Mr. Sellers' conclusions wore supported by thoso of Dr. A. F. Wagner, a Los Angeles autopsy surgeon, who sold rigor mortis bad not set In when Mr. Fee's body first reached thn ground. If the banker bud been slain away from the spot where his body had been found, the postmortem stllfnoss would have sot in beforo the body could be moved. Fee was staying -with Mrs. Fee at a cabin one-half milo from Mlhs Watkins' cabin whon bo disappeared throe days before his body wus found, Ho left, to repair a radio. Sheriff W. A. Shay, supporting the conclusions ot Dr. Wagner and Mr. Sellers, said the presence of Joseph Walker, wht> escorted Miss Watkins to tier mountain place on the same day Mr. anil Mrs. Fee went to the mountains, might have agitated the hanker. "Foe planned to reach Lytic Creek Canyon before. Miss Wnt- klus' party arrived," said Sheriff Shay. "He hail told her ho was going to Long Beach. All Hie evidence we have Indicates only one theory, that when Fee saw Miss Watkins and her escort ho was stricken with an organic attack lu his mental excitement nnd died. Feo bled considerably and not a speck of blood was on his collar or clothing. The blood poured out ot his nose Into tlio leaves directly under his nose. Ho could not have been in any other position. Doctors agree the amount of blood found could not have coma from Fee's body at this spot, bad he mot a violent death elsewhere and the body Inter moved."
