U. S. HARD PRESSED
Two Billions Less from Excess Profits
and Income Tax Creates Need
Up to Administration.
"It would not surprise me to see
tiie r publican administration back
a movement to is.-,,e bonds u meet
I the exp.-nses of the government at
no distant dale." said Fnited States
Senator (I. M. Hitchcock Monday on
his re'urn to Omaha for a short
st a. v.
"The republicans took office under
a pledge to reduce taxation, but
there is no immediate possibility of
the administration being able to
bring this about and besides, the ad
ministration is faced with immediate
necessitv for funds.
"The business depression that has
prevailed for nearly a ear in view
of the foreign ntuat;on has greatly
curtailed the probable income from
excess profits. Total reduction from
this source may run as high as a
billion and a half dollars. Receipts
from the income tax will be ie.-s. As
a whole. 1 believe the reduction in
revenue from these two s-mros
alone will be about two billions.
Would Create Big Problems
"It appears that the imposition of
a high protective thrift' would b" a
further bar to foreign commerce. To
solve the situation, the trend of af
fairs in Washington indicates one
source of revenue in a .-ales tax upon
ail commodities. If this is followed
the result will be that in place of
the revenue coming as now trom tl.e
rich in the form of excess profit
taxes and a tax upon income, the
producers and merchants will pay a
percentage upon their ales whether
their businesses have been, conducted
at a profit or not. The farmer whose
crop has been dispo.-ed of for Sn'"ii
a ear. will contribute ?40 to the
"Issue of bonds would of its- lf
create big problems. The present 4
and 4 '4 per cent bonds of the gov
ernment are quoted at around
It would probably be necessary to
issue new bonds at around per cent
and this might cntaii refunding.
Business Men Need League
"There has been some slight effort
to cut down the forces of govern
ment departments as an economy

task of meeting the big problem of

is one that calls for immediate action

WILL FIX UP BRIDGES
IN WEST PART OF CITY
From Monday'8 Deity.
This- morning O. V. Finney, rep
resenting the Monarch Engineering
Company of Falls City, arrived to
look after the work of putting in the
bridges in the west portion of the
city that have been out of commis
sion for the past year or better. One
of these bridges is on Maiden Lane,
just south of Main street and which
has been the cause of great danger
to anyone not familiar with the road
who might attempt to drive through
there. Another of the bridges to he-
placed will be one on west Y'ine
street near the Second ward school
which has been very badly needed
for a long time and which will fur
nish the residents of that portion of
the city an opportunity of getting in
and out without the necessity of
making long detours.

by Judge J. T. Begley.
From Tuesday's Daily.
The young men's bible school class
of the Methodist church met last
evening as guests at the home of
their teacher. Mr. K. H. Wescott. and
the occasion was one of more than
usual pleasure and profit as well.
IMstrict Judge James T. Peglev gave
the members of the class a very
thorough discussion of the legal as
pects of the trial of Christ, review
ing in detail the facts from the stand
point of the law. In pretacing his
remarks the judge cited a number of
the notable trials of ancient and
modern history, including the trial
of King Charles 1 of Fngland and
Captain Alfred Oreyfus of France
and from these led to the most strik
ing trial of all time -that of t lie
Savior before the Jewish and Roman
courts of Jerusalem. Judge P.egley
explained the three groups that com
prised the Sanhedrim the great ju
dicial council of the Jews and the
facts in the evidence offered against
Christ at the time of the trial when
he wa.- unjustly accused. Tiie vio
lation of the rules of the Jewish law-
was pointed out in the trial which
was held with only a part of the
Sanhedrin in attendance and also the
f.tct that Pilate, th.e Roman governor
could find no fault with the Christ.
and that Herod, the king, could fix
no crime at His door. Mr. I5egb-y re
cited as showing the illegal aspects
of the trial and condemnation. The
address was a very able one aud giv
en in a manner that made u clear
to the voung men. being reviewed
from a point ofTiev,- nut often stud
