Washington, December 15.—It would be about as easy to count the starlings which in hordes have infested the capital for years as to keep track of the many plans for unemployment, drouth and other needed, relief flying around Washington these days. It is next to impossible to keep abreast of their bare outlines, to say nothing of attempting in any way of analysis and appraisal. • • • Many are well meant and sincere even if misguided and economically unsound; the vast majority give forth the unmistakable odor of pork, and in a few instances one can actually hear squeal. Congress, particularly the senate, met in a most generous frame of mind—a generosity apparently over- apped by lavishness. That is to say, there was a willingness that seemed to border upon anxiety to spend unlimited amounts of money out of the treasury. The government would be bankrupt in short order if bills introduced by senators who, in their large way, hink only In billions, became laws. Vtost of them, of course, are offered with full appreciation of the fact that hey will never emerge from the committee rooms, but they are so numer- us and reckless that they have al- eady alarmed Secretary Mellon and President Hoover, who has not Instated to advise congress that if even part of these munificent proposals re enacted, there will be not only an ppalling deficit, but an actual need f levying new taxes. • * * That Is one of the most powerful ar- uments that can be used against confessional extravagance. When there s a large government surplus, and the treasury appears to be copiously sup>lied with money, legislators are prone ;o vote away large sums. But If unchecked appropriations mean at once new taxes, It amounts to a "Stop, Look and Listen" sign, evoking something more than mere speculation as to Just how such a thing will be swallowed by their beloved taxpaying constituents. No matter how necessary they may be, increases in taxation are never popular. Agitation for increased taxes to offset the threatened $400,000,000 treasury deficit and a general dissent from administration-democratic cooperation came from Senator Borah, insurgent spokesman. This development came at a moment when the harmony program was sagging badly over amount of money to DC spent for drouth relief, the first item on the list of emergency measures. * * * Senator Borah scored as a "false" and "vicious" theory the "widespread belief that you can restore prosperity from the public treasury," his implication being that, in the first place, taxes must go up to counter-balance increased outlays for emergency relief, and, secondly, that the program Is ineffective to produce permanent recuperation. Wide open as they seem willing to throw the flood gates of appropriations, every member of congress who has expressed his views on this subject is strongly opposed to any Increase in the tax rate. Yet in spite of the fact that as the relief programs begins to unfold a probable deficit of $390,000,000 as faced with the cloud of probable Increase taxes already assuming a threatening blackness, various organizations are planning a demonstration In Washington to back up their demand for relief appropriations reaching a total of $600,000,000 in lieu of the $150,000,000 suggested by President Hoover. It is demands for outlays on such a scale that give point to Senator Borah's reminder that higher taxes will inevitably follow, without any real contribution to the restoration o: prosperity. • • • The suggestion of the Idaho senator that the income taxes be increased a this time is not likely to strike a pop ular note. But Mr. Borah has callec attention, even if unpleasantly, to the necessity for the strictest kind of gov trnment economy. • • » It IK more than pass! ng strange tha at a time like this Washington shoul go, not merely outside the District o Columbia, but outside of the Unlte States for its most interesting topic o conversation. Possibly, however, it is not so surprising that temporary die traction from the sordid melodrama o politics should be caused by one of th most dramatic and daringly staged net of propaganda the civilized world has ever witnessed, which neared its cll- rnax with the sentence of death before a firing s<|ua<i for five of eight alleged coiuiplrators and imprisonment for the other three. • * • "Dramatic and daringly staged," yea, but a comedy for all of that—a sido- upllttlng farce-comedy to all that part til the world outside of Russia which can overcome its disgust. But the trial of the alleged conspirators in Moscow wits staged for home consumption before an audience that was none too c-rltcal. The world-wide plot for arm- Mi intervention in Russia, charged against Polncare of Prance, Churchill of England and the viceroy of Mukden, to wjhich supposedly repentant and hapless defendants confessed, has been everywhere outside of Russia accepted as pure buncombe. The long "confessions," laboriously read for hours into microphones detailed the steps that had been taken to wreck the great five-year program and prevent the realization of the millenlum toward which the masses of Russian people have been striving with a degree of self-sacrifice that passes human understanding. * • * The real purpose of the proceedings was not, of course, to bring punishment upon those men who admitted sabotogelng against soviet plans and hoping for the failure and fall of the soviet government The purpose was propaganda, obviously and unmistakably. It was a last and magnificent planned and executed effort to direct the minds of the Russian people from the cruel burdens they have to bear. To this end all of the propaganda resources of the government were bent At the trial no evidence whatever was presented to indicate that any plot existed except possibly In the imaginations of easily hoaxed simpletons. There Is more than a strong probability that the whole story was manufactured out of whole cloth by the soviet secret police and put into the mouths of the confessors as the price of their lives. * * * And if there ever existed any doubt that the whole episode was mere playacting, it was speedily dissipated when the announcement came that the death sentences had been commuted. It Is to laugh. Cars Collide on Slippery Pavement. Lone Rock, December 9. Special: Jessie Stebritz met with what might have been a serious accident Saturday night four miles north of Algona on the pavement. She and her daughters and Margaret Roderick were going to Algona and the John Kelso car of Buffalo Center was coming from Algona. When a Ford driven by some unknown person pulled out from behind the Kelso car and passed it. Mrs. Stebritz set her brakes to avoid hitting the Ford and the pavement being slippery her car turned around three times hitting the Kelso car. Both the Stebritz and the Kelso car had to be pulled to Algona by a wrecker. All were shaken up but no one was seriously hurt. &&8&&3m&^^ ST. JOE NEWS. (Crowded out last week.)
