THE MO F AIM, AXE SITUATION [Murshalltown Tlmcs-llepubllcaii.] Lieutenant Governor McFarlnne has nr- rived and nmdc reply ami explanation regarding the letter to IVUIIams. It Is In the minds of ninny flint tlie explanation scarcely suffices. Letters written by high officials to railroads soliciting business from the roads for private Interests nre hlffli- ly ticklish tlilnirs. Especially so when they mention, however Incidentally, legislative affairs concerning railways and siiirjrest, bow- ever Incidentally or subtly, as tile case may lie, legislative friendliness.

EXI'1A\ATIO\ FALLS SHOUT [Mason City (Jlobe-Cazetle.] Even those who have been friendly toward Lieut, Gov. Arcb JIcFarlune must admit, that bis explanation of the business letter to the Illinois Central, written on state stationery and referring to his legislative service to the railroads, left much unexplained. Mr. arcFarlane's course In this matter was extremely Injudicious If not something else. While Ills offense probably Is not as heinous as his political enemies will charge, It does stand as an argument against Ms further usefulness In Towa politics and public service. Many would doubt the propriety of merely accepting this extra business for his coal company. But going out after It with un official club, whether or not any promises were Intended, does not line up with the average lowaii's conception of 100 per cent pure, politics. What Isn't open to debate Is that "Mr. Jfc- Farlune underwent a pathetic lapse of political astuteness when he let such a message be set down on paper. every iowim who hw at heart tlM stated best Interest*. . , .. This seems to be'the general opinion among editors who supported Ed M; Smith, though some of them may be lying-in wait to take advantage of whatever opportunity may arise to wreck the new administration. But Governor Turner's principal handicap wll not be his pre-prlmary political adversaries, no matter what they may 'db. The chief danger lies In his own popularity and 'the public's exaggerated expectations of wKat he can accomplish As regards tax reform particularly, the people, should understand that all'that can reasonably be expected of the new administration is the beginnings. Reforms take 'years in the making. It has taken 20 years to come this far. It would be highly unreasonable to look for completion of the program in .only two years more. • Topics of the Times The news that Robert G. Cousins Is a state patient at Iowa City brings a pang of regret to men past middle age who recall him as a silver- tongued or>Uor in Congress. Now aged, broken in health, and indigent, he Is a striking warning to all who live not wisely but too well. Governor Hammill could not bow himself out of office without winging a final poisoned dart at the Income tax. Happily there was not strength enough in the bow or the Governor's arm to carry the arrow to Its mark. Today he loins the has-beens. Let him R. I. P.

There Is no newspaper In the state which we look forward to re- SEINING BOUGH FISH RESISTED IN MINNESOTA DEVELOPMENTS OF A STAHTLIXG WEEK AT DES MUIXES The political developments ot the last week at Des Moines have lieen abrupt and startling. Ho •used to defeat that they hardly dared hope for anything else, the so-called progressives have •suddenly found themselves in almost undisputed control. For the first time in some years the •governor and both houses of the legislature are Jn accord. The surprising chain of events began with the .•nomination in the republican caucus of Francis Johnson, of Dickinson county, for speaker. This took place Saturday and by the state at large the choice was somewhat unexpected, since the :advance dope of the press correspondents bad Jather favored former Speaker Joe Johnson, of Knoxville. What was even more surprising was the selection of Senator JIcLeland, of Marshall county, •for president pro tern of the Senate. In this contest Senator C. F. Clark, head of the joint legislative tax commission, was defeated, apparently because be had once opposed the income •tax, though now be ranks as one of the chiefs of the progressive forces. The selection of Francis Johnson for speaker was peculiarly fortunate in tbe eyes of friends of the income tax and other proposed relief from overburdonsome property taxation, for ho lias .from the first cooperated with Senator Patter- eon in authorship of the income tax bills. Senator McLeland is also a dyed-in-the-wool income taxer. The choice of these men for their respective offices .sufficiently shown that the •progressive element is at last in control of the .legislature as well as of tbe governorship. Sunday morning there was broadcast in the TDes irojne.s Register the reply ot Lieutenant Governor McFarlane to the charges recently directed against him by J. C. Lewi«, head of the state labor federation. This had been awaited •with intense interest by friend and foe alike of the lieutenant governor. McFarlane'.s weak and evasive reply fell flat. The reaction was seen Monday, when a movement to deprive him of his power to name Sen- •ste, committees was undertaken. While the pa- •J>ers have given feu- details, the swift developments of Monday warrant the assumption that '.McFarlane foresaw miccess of the attempt and sought cover, lie begged permission to name a •committee on committees, and this was granted. Doubtless there was an understanding before- land on who would bo named. In any event •McFarlane would, under the circumstances, not 'ha.ve dared to name a packed committee, for he faced a situation which might involve impeachment proceedings. He therefore named a half•and-half committee of progressives and reactionaries. Senator Patterson is a member of this committee. "Whether the progressives, who, it would seem, •held at least potential control of the situation, were wise in agreeing to this division of authority remains to be seen. The chances are that they were motivated at least in part, by a desire to drop the McFurlane matter. This seem- '-•Ingly strange behavior is to be explained on the ground that they feared that the tax reform program would be endangered if the McFarlane -charges were permitted to result in impeachment proceedings. Having unhorsed McFarlane and deeming him no longer in a position to em- itorrass the reform program, they preferred to let him go rather than risk wasting a month or •two on a trial which might in the end fail foi "technical reasons. Although President Lewis is now out with a 'tiery circular in which he demands impeachment, the procedure just suggested seems on lie whole, best. There can be no doubt that McEarlane is done for politically. His power to •Influence legislation through the appointment ol •eommlttees has been taken from him. It is no •likely that his altitude towards legislative proposals at this session will count for anything "either way, and undoubtedly he will be retiree ;at the next election. To dissipate the energies•of the legislature by an attempt to impeach bin 'would be, a waste of precious time, even if he 'Were convicted. Since he is out of the picture wnyhow, the beet thing the legislature can dc «ow is to ignore him and get down to hard work -•on the important program which lies before it. EXPECT ONLY AVHAT IS KEASONABLE PROM THE NEW GOVEIlNOli Speaking of the new governor, Editor Rich Xrds, of Toledo, says: Ban W. Turner was not the choice of the To ileao Chronicle lor the governorship nomination -«t the June primary, but It Is convinced that he WIU m«ke an outstanding governor ol Iowa. HI KMlUty lias never been questioned. A man ivnc <*W come as near getting 100 per cent of the WMe of Ills home county as Mr. Turner Old las Qlne fe a man good enough to fill any office TwMcli he may aspire. As governor of Iowa dur 9M the next two years — at least four year « *e ta not elevated to a higher office—Mr. Tur wftt have weighty responsibilities resting on He lg entitled to loyal support jolitics have been written that will never see celving each week with the eagerness with which we look for the Kossuth County Advance. There is no editorial page in any Iowa daily or weekly paper which we read so avidly as we devour the contents of the editorial page of Brother Dewel's paper. the light. Exactly what, for example, were the circumstances which compelled the notorious McFarlane to yield his power to appoint senate committees? the It is to be hoped that Chicago lias really caught the Lingle murderer and will «end him to the chair. Not that anyone cares a whoop about vengeance for Llngle,.but that it is high time'that government asserted Itself in Chicago and put down the gangsters. Ed M. Smith may not have his income tax economics on straight, but there is no denying his keen judgment of a few months back relative to tbe proposal for tbe 5-day week for la- jor. Labor would demand C-day pay just the same and the rest of us would have to pay tbe toll. Talk of driving Borah, Brookhart, and their Ik out of the republican party is beside the mark. What it amounts to is a claim that no one is a republican who suggests reform. When a party gets into that frame of mind it has out- ived its day. Our hat is off to the Mason City Globe-Gazette ind the Marshalltown Times-Republican. Alone among the dailies of the state, so far as we have observed, they have dared to express editorial condemnation of the McFarlane letter. Numerous Iowa standpat newspapers whose chief stock in trade against the income tax has jeen the charge that it could not be a replacement tax because the legislature would boost expenses enough to equal the returns' are at present doing their best towards that end by advocating a state constabulary. Opinions of the Editors They 1)0 Have Their Limits. Iowa Falls Citizen—Well, we have been vatcbi'ig for the reactionaries to march to the lefense of McFarlane. However, it seems to be .00 raw for some of them. lleno Doth 1'rotflst Too Much. Swea City Herald—Members of the Emmet Bounty Farmers' Union cheered wildly Friday night when Mllo Reno, fiery ex-president of the ~owa Farmers' Union, told them that "the fed- iral farm board, appointed by President Hoover ind headed by Alexander Legge is a damnable, 'evilish and un-American institution." I'sst! 3fr. McFiirluno—Jinrn Paint! Spencer News-Herald—Arch McFnrlane .should lave talked to Clov. Hammill before writing hose coal letters to the Illinois Central Railway •System. Gov. Hammill could have told him no loubt that mixing public office affairs with iiirely private matters isn't just exactly the >est kind of politics to indulge in—even for bon- st men. Had Xews for Anil-Income Taxcrs. Knoxville Journal—Speaking of the income a.x being n replacement tax, it is noted that line states having the income tax reduced their general property tax levies for state purposes 2.59 per cent between 1922 and 192S, while the 19 states- not having the income tax increased heir levies on general property 1G.51 per cent.

CAREY keeps picking on us because he knew what "zippers" were without referring to a single one of his seven dictionaries and we didn't. The other day he clipped a page from the Drygoods Merchants' Trade Journal, Des Molnes, carrying an article headed "The Strange Case of Zippers" and spent a 2c stamp to mail to us. And not content with that he used part of it In his Rear Seat column Monday, heading it thus: "Well, Well! So Alien Wasn't the Only One Who Didn't Know His Zippers"— "Ask a manufacturer's salesman, a salesperson In a store or a friend on the street, 'What are zippers?' They'll say, 'Why, zippers are fasteners.' And they will illustrate their meaning with_a movement of the hand. Fine, except that the answer is nil wrong. Zippers are galoshes, overshoes. It is a duly registered trade name coined by the manufacturer to describe galoshes made by that company and fastened with a certain type of fastener The galoshes are simply one of the many items equipped with these slide fasteners. 'Zippers' describes the galoshes and does not describe the fastener." THE OTHER WEEK this sapient paragraph appeared in the next column to the left—"It is not exaggeration to say that Senator Brookhart is the target for at least 50 Iowa newspaper attacks every week. These range from smart paragraphs to labored editorials. It does not speak well for the influence of the newspapers that the attacks seem to do the senator little political harm." It was clipped and went traveling, and some other wise guy saw it, cut it out, pasted it to a sheet of paper, and mailed it back, with this comment below— "Curtis was right. They are too dumb to understand." The clipper was a Methodist. Anyhow he left the principal word out of the famous remark. .Fishing May Seem to be ft peaceful occupation to Martin county residents who ply the local lake* and frequently asglst Julius Simon and Ernie Hand at seining rough fish, but not so at Lac QUl Parle county, Minn., aays the.' Fairmont Sentinel, Vhleh/continues as follows; Threats of nearly liOOO • persons and partial destruction of a net halted an attempt to begin seining for rough fish in Lac Qul Parle county. Hosea Randall, believed by local fishermen to • be a' brother' of. Mai colm Randall, who has hod fishing contracts in lakes in Martin county in recent years, was one^ofr th'e con tractors involved. Heriry Kohls, another contractor, is well known by Ernest Hand, one of Martin county's fishermen. Declaring they would not allow the work to go on, residents of eight commtfnitles succeeded In delaying the' seining till their protest Is heard by George W. McCullough,,. state game and fish commissioner. A truce was declared for 24 hours, and one of the three contractors announced he would withdraw from the work. T. E. Latlmer, Minneapolis, was named to represent those opposing the seining In conferences with the game and fish department. Spokes-, men said if the fishing permit was not cancelled during the truce period an injunction would be sought. Sportsmen and others came to the lake after early protests against state action In granting a seining contract were not heeded. They contended the work in the lake, which is a widening of the Minnesota river, would be harmful to game fish and that too few of 'rough varieties existed there to make the work necessary. Henry Kohls, Hosea Randall, and Osmund Strand, to whom the state awarded the contract, placed their big net some time ago and in the presence of Game Warden Paul Goode.ll, of Herman, planned to pull it in. The crowd surrounded a hole cut in the Ice as the dragging began, some one cut the rope and warnings to refrain went unheeded.. Again the rope was cut, and then the fishermen conferred with R. M, Saltness, Dawson attorney who represented the opposition. It was agreed the work would be suspended 24 hours if the fishermen were allowed to haul in the net and retain the rough fish. The net parted, and most of the fish escaped, but in its meshes were caught 161 fish. Saltness announced the decision to the assembly, and Randall, who owns a nearby summer resort, said he would withdraw permanently. Randall said residents of the affected area should determine whether the lake should be seined. "War Nurse" we get the feminine slant.

February to be Example of Perfect Month [Fort Dodge Messenger.] An association advocating simplification of the calendar is asking people to look over the new 1931 calendars and in particular to note the arrangement of days of February this year which it so happens, is just the way each month would be arranged should the calendar be changed as proposed. Hence, this coming February is pointed to as the "perfect month." February, this year, will begin on a Sunday and end on a Saturday—just four even weeks inasmuch as this is not a leap year. A nice clean four-week month—that's February 1931 Not until February, 1942, can the calendar 'as now arranged, again present such a month The proposed 13-month fixed calendar would make every month, that way by shortening the other months to exactly four weeks each and combining the surplus days (except one) into a new month of four weeks. Each of the 1' months would be made always to begin on Sunday by starting the year on Sunday and ending it with "Year Day," the one day in each year in excess of 52 weeks and which is not absorbed by the extra month. The added day in leap years is likewise given the new name of "Leap Day " Calendar would bec °me fixed as well as The years which have a "perfect February" in the present shifting calendar run in a curious cycle They come in years which begin on Thursday, although not in every year which begins on Thursday because some years beginning on Thursday are leap years when February has W days, or one day in excess of four weeks The beauty of the proposed 13 equal months fixed calendar, say the "advocates of the change s that it would end the confusion caused by the incessant change in the makeup of all the present months. The day of the week would no longer fall on different dates of different months because the months would all be the same and the cycling of the week days to different dates o£ corresponding months from year to MR. ANDREW ROSSMAN, from near Dows, pleaded guilty to chicken-stealing. He was represented in court by County Attorney-elect Roy A. Henderson. Instead of sending Rossman to Eldora, the judge paroled him to Mr. Henderson. Recently, when Rossman came in to Mr. Henderson's office to report on his conduct in accordance with the judge's order, no one was there, but on examination of Mr. Henderson's desk, Rossman found $7.50, which he proceeded to steal, swipe, and appropriate to his own use. Mr. Henderson got in touch with him a few days later, and he admitted taking the money. He had spent it, however, and now Mr. Henderson wants to know if the $7.50 is deductible from his income tax report. ,He got $1(1 for defending : lossman and Rossman stole $7.50 of the orig- nal $10.—Ward Barnes in "InWuman Interest." Laid aside some weeks ago, under the jmpres- ion that sometime it might come handy, and low that it has turned up again Ward's com- nent in the following paragraph is for the first ime discovered— "Editor W. C. Dewel, of Algona, expert on tax matters, can give Mr. Henderson just the ser•ice he needs." True, Ward, true. But the service will not be •ee. We demand the other $2.50. • AVoll, Hoy, That Explains Everything Except, AVlint Doe Did Olve You? [Jarney's Own Coluntn.] Well we have no objection to telling the result of our pre-Christmas hints to shoppers. We might say at the start that Doc Goston fell down on the garter proposition right off the bat. He gave us something all right, but it was not a pair of garters, and what we will do next July, when a new pair will be almost imperative, we don't know. We had said in our announcement that we didn't particularly need'any new* shirts, and they all took us at our word on that, and we didn't get any.

Well, we were pretty well remembered at that, and of course appreciate all that was giv- would cease. year Of course those who would change the calendar cannot get very far- until there is a wide agreement among the nations to make the change, and elaborate preparations for it. There is opposition to the chajnge. too. Tradition is him a letter. W. C. DEWEL in his Algona Advance reads the daily newspapers the following lecture anent Lieut. Gov. Arch McFarlane's widely published letter to the Illinois Central railroad. "It is being left to the weekly newspapers to voice the public indignation which McFarlane's act deserves. The daily newspapers are not discussing the revelations editorially, though if the same thing happened in the national field they would be vociferous in demands for resignation . Let them for once cease the tiresome discussion of harmless inanities long enough tb do their duty."—J. W. C. in Sioux City Journal.

This will be a'dou- ble-header, for the local girls will also play a Whittemore girls' team.
