000,000,000 and 1.500.000,000 marks

the necessity of purchasing foreign
currency to the disadvantage of Ger

Germany refused to stage a politi
cal upheaval because of the assas
sination of Mathias Erzberger by an
irresponsible youth. No doubt Ger
many remembers that it was an
event of just this sort that led to
the World War.
"When you let your hair grow
long it's a eure sign that you are
ready for the insane asylum," says
Glenn Voliva, overseer of Zion City.
Yes, but the trouble with these
long-haired folks who are allowed to
run at large is that they are crazy
and don't krow it.
OPPOSITION TO THE
Some Republican Senators Opposed
to German Pact on Ground
that it Entangles U. S.
Washington. Sept. 16. Opposi
tion to the Harding treaty of peace
with Germany was understood today
to have developed in republican sen
atorial ranks on the ground that the
pact entangles the United States in
European affairs almost as much as
the league of nations covenant.
How far this opposition will be;
reflected in votes of republican sen
ators is uncertain. Criticism of the
pact is not confined to senators who
were irreconcilables on the Ver
sailles treaty, however.
Senators have been studying the
new treaty for several weeks. In sev
eral instances they have consulted
their colleagues about its provisions.
A number are convinced that the
treaty ties the United States into
the Versailles treaty as surely as
tho the senate had ratified that in
strument. It is significant, however, that no
republican senator, irreconcilable or
moderate, is ready at this time to
state his opposition publicly.
Democratic oppostion is expected
as a matter of course.
BRYAN PLEADS FOR FARMERS.
New Orleans, La.. Sept. 16. Be
cause of the sudden fall in prices of
farm products, and because other
prices have not fallen in proportion,
the condition of the farmer is worse
today than it has been in thirty
years, declared William Jennings
Bryan in an address before the in
terstate farm congress today. Mr.
Bryan declared the farmers "must
stand united against the present ef
forts to shift the burden of taxation
from the privileged few to the
masses. The obvious purpose of the
revenue bill now under discussion in
congress is relatively to decrease the
taxes of the rich and relatively in
crease the taxes of the poor."
"The revenue bill, as it passed the
house, removed the tax from excess'
profits; that is, profits that are ex
cessive, and bestowed upon the profi-!
teers a gift estimated at $450,000,
OpO," said Mr. Bryan.
Sure we have fine bargains in anything you want
in our line, at the
The Dusterhoff Shops,
As hos-t to the delegates to the
Washington disarmament conference
it will be up to the United Slates
government to pay the expenses.
It is inipe.-sible to estimate what
the co.st will be, but it is certain
to run into big figures.
Each delegation will be accom
panied by dozens of experts, secre
taries, etc., totalling several hun
dred. It would not be surprising if
the conference lasted three months.
According to one state department
official, six months is not outside
the possibilities. '
One of the big items cf expense
will be the printing bill.
The printing for one of the Pan
American conferences cost over $ 100,
000, and that was just a tide-show
compared with the conference that
will start in Washington November
The government chargts that cof
fin maker.-; have been guilty of pro
fiteering. Well, anyway the f:lks
who are in collins won't kick. All of
them are w:Iliag to let well enough
Mrs. W. A. Swatek of this city,
who is at the St. Joseph .hospital in
Omaha recovering from the effects
of an operation performed a few days
ago is reported as showing a very
pleasing improvement and her gen
eral condition has been very encour
aging to the family and friends here.
Mr. Swatek who has been at. the bed
side of the wife in Omaha reports
that she is now doing as well as
could possibly be expected.
