His speech in part follows:
"One of the great shortcomings of
the American people in connection
with their public affairs is that they
fail to apply tr)e remarkable business
acumen which tliey possess to public

realize that they are the govern
ment, that it is they who must pay
the taxes, that i they who must suf

We will often make a brave start to
do so, and then balk because the in

"Consider the Federal Land banks.
They are great co-operative institu
tions that have been established bv
our government for the benefit of
the farmers; but instead of giving
these banks every facility to do busi
ness, congress limits the loans a co
operative bank can make to a max
imum of $10,0(X) to-a sort of retail
business. Many of the choicer loans
afforded exceed $10,000, so that a co
operative bank has to forego this
(class of proiitable business."
He said Jhat if the. Federal banks
were given an opportunity to handle
affairs the same as private institu

possible to reduce the interest rate
materially. "Anything wc can do to

Competition in Rate.
''There was a time when there was
competition in railroad rates. It was
then that we rode for 2 cents. a mile.
It was then that, it did not cost two
cars of corn to ship tnree to a sea

hut the possibility of competition m

the enactment of the Eseh-Cmnmms

that time, had merely recommenda

exactions of the railroads, authority

which the railroads could not go. T his

be eliminated in state government and
efficiency and economy would prevail

"We must bear in mind," Randall
said, "that only 19 "cents of the tax

and the remainder is spent at home
by the county, municipal and town
ship governments and your chool
"Our increase in Kale taxes Is
more than accounted for by our ap
propriations for a soldier bonus, good
roads and new state house." Continu
ing, Randall pointed to the campaign

lows: "Look at your tax receipts and
turn the rascalt out." "I looked at
my tax receipts and they were large
last year," he said, "and then I be
gan investigating. I learned that

told tne of increasing number of

"A visit to city officials was next.

Duties It Slightly Hdow
House to Vote Today
Wash'iigton. Sept. I-'.-(Hy A. V.)
The administration tariff bill in
the form in which it will become a
law, probably before October I, wa
made public today with the presenta
tion of the conference report to the
house. Many of the rate proposed
by the senate were reduced by the
republican conferees, but the experts
estimated that the level of it duties
wat only slightly below the level of
those in the fainou l'ayne-Aldrich
ect, the last republican protective tar
iff. Fl.ising their calculations on the
present volume of import tiade,
treasury experts figure that the bill
would yield an annual government
revenue of $400,000.t0. I bis would
be $44,0)0,0(KJ more than was re
ceived during the last fiscal year
through combined operation of the
democratic Underwood law and the
republican emergency tariff act, both
of which will be tupplanted by this
bill immediately after it is signed by
House to Vote Today.
Final action on the measure by the
house tomorrow was the plan of
leader under agreement made today
for only four hours of general debate
with a vote to follow immediately.
The bill will then go to the senate
where debate of a, week or more is
expected to precede the flnal'vote.
Discussion in both the house and
senate, but more particularly in the
latter,. wU be the forerunner of that
to be heard over the country before
the November elections, as the bill
is certain to ht one of the chief is
sue in the congressional and sena
torial campaigns. Democrats will
continue their attacks on the measure
as one itrtain to increase the cost of
living 'by several billions of dollar
a year and as encouraging the con
tinuation of war prices.
Republican proponents of the tar
iff have defended it and plan to con
tinue to do o as the first to accord
agriculture a proper measure of pro
tection and as necessary to protect
both industry and labor in the present
abnormal world economic situation
and more particularly front disastrous
competition from the low cost of pro
duction countries in central Europe
and the orient. ,
Three Reduction! Made.
Chief fighting points in the bill
thus far have been the wool, sugar
and dye duties, all of which were re
duced, some in conferem'e, and the
so-called flexible tariff provision giv
ing the president broad authority over
tariffs. Under this provision, as fin
ally perfected in conference, the ex
ecutive would have the power to in
crease or decrease rates SO per cent.
Should such increase prove insuffi
cient to protect American industry,
the president could declare American
valuation bi no rate in the bill could
be increased on that valuation al-

Stages of Injunction Suit
Issue Vigorously Fought
Chicago, Sept. 12 (T'.y A. P.)
With more than 20,000 affidavit of
assaults by strikers and strike ym
paiiuer on railroad worker in
every section of the country, the
government today launched it ef
tort to show a concerted effort by
the strfking ihoprraftt to interfere
with interstate traffic by driving rail
road employe from their work.
Overruling the objection of attor
neys for 15. M. Jewell and John Scott
the strike leaders. Federal Judge
Janie H. Wilkerson admitted the
udiilaviu in evidence, for the time
being at bast, in the hearing on the
government hill for a temporary
injunction against some 240 shop-
crafts pfticials and more than .(IHI.OiM)
of their followers.
The court likewise deferred for the
present argueut on the defense mo
tion for modification of the tempor
ary restraining order now in force.
He ruled that the government' con
tention that the dominant purpose of
the alleged conspiracy is the destruc
tion of interstate traffic would be a
vital factor in determining whether
the unions were entitled to any modi
fication, and directed the govern
ment to proceed with the evidence on
which it expects to prove that ctuim.
Assault on Evidence.
The value as evidence of the affi
davits of persons assaulted by the
strikers and strike sympathizers, or
atiidavits of public or railroad of
ficials claiming knowledge of such
assaults, was vigorously opposed by
Donald R. Richberg of Chicago and
Frank Mulholland of Toledo, attor
neys for Mr. Jewell and Mr. Scott.
They fought their introduction and
entered a general objection" to all of
them that the government may pro
dure. The affidavits, they declared, are
at the best only secondary evidence
and they fail, they added, to show
any connection between their clients
and the perpetrators of the acts of
violence complained of.
Mr. Richberg challenged the read
ing of 'bulletins from various local
strike headquarters over the country
presented to the court by J. A. Fow
ler, special assistant attorney general,
and pointed out that the bulletins
themselves in many cases showed
the peaceful intent of the strikers
and their desire to avoid violence
and co-operation with the peace
Blackburn Esterline, assistant to
the solicitor general, read nearly 200
of the affidavits telling of assaults
to the court today.

Chicago, Sept. 12.-(By A. P.)-A
husky janitor put a sudden end to
negotiations seeking a basis for set
tlement of the railway shopcrafts'
strike today, when mop and broom
in hand, he ordered the union lead
ers out of the hall in which they were

tomorrow morning without taking
any definite action.

of the two-day session, that the jani

the doors behind which the shopcraft
policy committee of 90 was in ses

"Vou'se fellows gotta get out o'here
at 5 sharp," he declared. "I gotla
clean up for some wimmin."
The demand was transmitted direct
to B. M. Jewell, strike leader, who
bad just, finished an impassioned ap
peal, and a vote was in immediate
prospect. But with the lease on the
hall expiring in 10 minutes, the pro
ceedings were halted while- efforts
were made to obtain a few minutes'
grace from the janitor and then from
the building authorities. When these
efforts failed, the adjournment was

Dublin, Sept. 12. (By A. ,P.)
William Cosgrave, president ot the
Dail Kiieaim, addressing parliament
said that if those holding up arms
against the Irish government thought
the government was afraid to main
tain its Supremacy they were badly
If member of the government
failed, others would replace them,
he said. The government was will
ing to have a peaceful understanding
with those now in arms, but it must
be on the government's basis. The
government wanted peace with Eng
land and would tolerate no breach
in the treaty.
Peace must be a constitutional
one, there must be no armed bodies
without the sanction of parliament
and parliament must control all arms.
"We insist on the people's rights,"
he said. "We are the custodians
of the people's rights, and we shall
not hesitate to protect them. We are
willing to have a peaceful under
