IMPORT TAX' IMPRACTICABLE
AMSTERDAM, Deo. 20. Review
ing the recent speech on Germany'
financial condition, which Dr. Karl
llelfferich, secretary of the treasury,
made before) the Reichstag, the So
rlaliat newspaper, Vorwaerts, of Ber
lin, asserts the time has come for the
German, government and the Reich
stag to indicate in what way the
money necessary for payment of In
terest on the nation'a gigantic war
debts and lo provide for their re-
detnpUou, Is to be raised. It aars:
"With the naw war credit of tO.OOT.noo.Wu
marks the German war deht reached
fi.rtin.nro msrks which, according to
Dr. llelfferich. ahould lat tinttl the end
of March. Interest on 4n.)0,wn,nno marks
amount to I.tori.OfO.ono marks annually
and for redemption which Is necessary
In order to maintain the credit of the
empire, another tm.w.nriO marks is
Mast Deable Income.
The Vorwaerts considers It essential
that the empire's Income be more than
doubled to meet three obl'gatmna and
tho current expenses. Before the war, it
says, the flnancal slato of Ofriitany wjs
a source of anxiety to tlie government.
In !!, taxation was Inctcnsed by :0P.
OW.OOrt marks, but the budget did not
balance. In 1913 the government adopted
the extrordlnary measure of taxing
wealth and levying a non-recurrent con
tribution for armament in order to cover
Maintenance of the existing financial
system, the Vorwaerts continues. Is In
possible so fsr ss taxation of Imports
Is concerned. Provisions, raw materl-.ils
and many other attic Irs may be expected
to rlsi In price after the war and If the
present tariff were continued. It would
lead to an artificial Increase of prices
for tier-many which would undermine the
capability of Herman Industry to compete
In the world market.
Import Tax Impracticable.
"Therefore, the Interests of consumers
and producers," the Vorwaerts concludes,

As no mention 'Is made -In ths British

withdrawal of troops indicated a decision i
to abandon the effort to force the Dgr-i

of the allied forces. , . ;
There have been no previous hints of:
such a move, although the queatlon bad :

of the failure of the allies to make ap
preciable headway at the Dardanelles and
the urgent need for additional troops at
Halonlki, the Dardanelles force would b
withdrawn.' Two official Turklab com

Let Us Each Progress by Helping the Other
Co-Operation is the Spirit of the Times
When you buy Omaha-Made Goods you help build-up
Omaha factories. But in building up Omaha's manufacturing
industry you help, not only the factories, but yourself as
well. It is not charity to demand Omaha-Made Goods it is
the logical way to help yourself and build up your own busi
Money spent for Omaha-Made Goods stays in Omaha.
Each individual .gets back many times a certain per cent
of each dollar he spends. More money spent for Omaha
Made Goods means greater factories, more employes, more
taxable property, lower prices on goods you buy and more
prosperity in general. !
Abandon from your, mind all thought of Public Spirit and Civic Pride.
Look at it from the viewpoint of the selfish individual. Answer the ques
tion in your own mind: "How does itibenefit me personally to buy Omaha
Made Goods?" Demand Omaha-Made Goods because you do help yourself
by so doing. -
, In addition to making the community and yourself more prosperous in
a general way, you do not have to pay the heavy transportation charges for
shipping'in goods made elsewhere when you buy Omaha-Made Goods.
Because of this, Omaha-Made goods are cheaper for the same quality.
And then, in cases where it is necessary to rectify errors or replace parts in Omaha-Made Ar
ticles, yon have a direct, home service, no delays, no inconveniences, no transportation charges.
Help yourself by demanding Omaha-Made Goods. Out out the list of Omaha manufacturers
adjoining. Use it as a reference. Demand their goods. Make a fair test on a quality basis. If
Omaha-Made Goods do not prove the advertised claims, buy them no more. But give them a
fair trial before dclding. This is only a "square deal" It isn't much to ask.
