Last Tuesday, Frank Trotter, who
is a truckman, hauling stock and
merchandise all over the country, was
caued to take a load of hogs, for
a client and took them to Nebraska
City. Frank has had a very friendly
feeling for the hustling town of Otoe
county, and has taken hogs there
many a trip, to the benefit of the
town. This time he unloaded his
hogs, and started for home, and hav-

may be their style, but it has not
made Frank feel any more frienly

He said the plants would reopen
next Monday, "and the men and
women who return to work will be
protected." The union is losing $15,
000 a day, Patterson said, and the
plants are losing $135,000. He ex
plained that the fight is not with
union labor but with Ben Abrams,
who dominates the union and who
has projected a $1,000,000 cleaning
plant to be operated by the union.
Patterson said he would confer with
the federal district attorney con
cerning possible government action
against the union for violation of the
Sherman antitrust act thru restraint
ARMY REPORTS REQUESTED
Washington Representative Bar
bour, republican, California, chair
man of the house war department ap
propriations subcommittee, announc
ed Saturday he had requested the
war department to furnish him with
the report of the army general staff
upon President Hoover's military
economy program to be utilised by
his subcommittee which starts con
sideration of that department's sup
ply bill on Nov. 15.
One of the general staff surveys.
he said, was a study on the proposed
abandonment of a number of smaller
military posts in the nation. He said
there were a number of posts which
were not of strategic value and could
be abandoned without injurying the
He also said he had been in form
ed that the war department is con
templating suspension of construc
tion work authorized under the
$100,000,000 military building act at
a number of posts which may be
given up as a result of the economy
Representative McSwain. democrat,
South Carolina, ranking minority
member of the house military com
mittee, said he favored the proposal
to abandon military posts which do
not contribute to the national de
Move to Hurry
Up the Tariff
Washington The first definite
move to hasten action on the tariff
bill ended in failure Tuesday in the
senate and a subsequent proposal to
abandon the measure until the regu
lar session opening in December was
allowed to lie on the table.
Finding the measure still making
little headway despite the urgings
for quicker action from President
Hoover and senate party leaders.
Chairman Smoot of the finance com
mittee who is steering the bill for
the administration republicans, ask
ed that beginning Wednesday and
for the remainder of the week debate
be confined to the tariff and nothing
Altho Smoot allowed a half hour
each in the morning and afternoon
for introduction of other business
the proposal met the objection of
Senator Dill of Washington, who said
he could not consent to interfering
with the age old custom of permit
ting free and open discussion in the
Plugging to Continue.
Senator Walsh of Montana, acting
democratic leader, endeavored in vain
to induce the Washington senator to
reconsider. Then, after a round of
debate in which Senator Xorris ap
pealed to senators to stop talking
about procedure and "get along with
the bill," Senator Blease of South
Carolina, offered a resolution to post
pone further consideration of the
measure until the day following dis
position of the Vare case in the regu
The resolution cieated" no discus
sion on the floor and republican lead
ers expressed the view afterward that
the senate would continue plugging
away with the bill without a res
pite between the special and Decem
Senator Jones of Washington, act
ing republican leader, said he did not
believe that under the present pro
cedure the resolution could be tak
en up except by a motion to recom
mit the bill.
Smoot's Plea Vigorous.
Smoot made a vigorous plea for
agreement to his unanimous consent
request. "I beg the senators to let
this bill pass in some form," he as
serted, after pointing out that only
four and a half hours had been spent
on the bill since the middle of last
week. The Utahan conceded the coal
ition had enough votes to defeat it.
However, he urged the speeding of
the bill to conference, saying then
"the senate can decide whether it
wants the bill or not."
Senators Walsh and Norris had
no objection to the agreement be
ing entered into but did oppose un
due haste, declaring the debate on
the pending measure had been more
to the point than in an tariff bill in
Once the debate turned again to
rates the senate was treated to -as
wide a split in party and factional
groups as has taken place since
schedules were taken up. Democrats
and republican independents left
their camps on two occasions. to vote
for republican committee amend
ments providing for rate reductions,
losing in one and winning in the
Debate to Be Limited.
By a vote of forty to thirty-five
the senate rejected a committee pro
posal to cut to $1.50 a ton the exist
ing rate of $4 a ton on crude pro
duced in the southeastern states and
used in the manufacture of paper
and pottery. A proposal by Senator
Fletcher of Florida, to raise the rate
to $3.75 lost without a roll call.
A little later the senate rejected,
forty-four to twenty-seven, an amend
ment by Senator Pittman, democrat,
Nevada, to retain the existing rate
of $4 a ton on crude silica, a raw

GAIN TWO BILLION
Washington, Nov. 4. Speculation
may be "bad business" for the ordi
nary mortal and the despair of econ
omists, but it accounted for nearly
$2,000,000,000 of American income
Speculation in real estate, stocks
ami bonds netted $1,813, 395,000 in
1927 to that group of American pub
lic which pays income tax returns,
the bureau of internal revenue an
nounced Monday in its anual analy
sis of income tax statistics.
It represented 6.92 per cent of the
gross income of individuals of 26,-
Wages and salaries made up $10,
218,449,000 of the total; business,
$3,287,000,000; partnerships, $1,-
755,000,000; and $1,081,000,000 cap
ital net gain from. assets held more
than two years.
The speculative gains reported in
income tax returns filed in 1929
based on the profits of 1928, big year
in the stock market, undoubtedly
will show a tremendous jump over
1927, since only in the last few
months of that year did speculative
activities gain heavy momentum.
