TAX UPON POTASH
Land Commissioner in Confer
ence With Federal Expert
Declares New Revenue
From a Staff Correspondent.
Lincoln, Aug. 21. (Special.) The
new revenue bill, proposed by con
gress does not meet the approval of
Land Commissioner G.L. Shumway,
, so far as it covers tax on potash. He
believes such a tax would be a men
ace to the industry in this state, and
, speaking of the matter today, said
"The revenue bill, which Is under
consideration by the congressional
committee having the same in charge,
contemplates putting a heavy tax on
transportation of potash, particularly
if for any great distance. This fea
ture is a danger to the big sandhill
industry, and particularly vital to Ne
braska mills, for the potash market
is largely at Birmingham and other
southeastern community centers.
There it is extensively used in the
production of citrus fruits, other
foods and tobacco. The consequences
to Nebraska's big industry, as well
as its relation to food production,
should be well considered, and the
menace eliminated from the bill.
"Dr. G. C. Spencer, of the Bureau
of Soils, Department of Agriculture,
was in conference with Land Com
missioner Shumway, Tuesday, in
which this matter was duscussed. ,
"Dr. Spencer is a potash expert,
nd debated with the commissioner
the problem of increased activities
in Nebraska and federal co-operation
in enlarging potash production.
Naturally this covered the subject
of legal complications covering state
lands, and the plan of federal control
as a war measure, which has been
heretofore proposed by Commissioner
"It was suggested that perhaps Ne
braska could do its share by removing
rapidly the obstacles in the way of
production by the state and from
state lands, which can be best ac
complished by co-operation of all in
terested parties, and the Department
of Agriculture could exercise its
friendly services with comprehensive
representations to congress concern
ing the danger of the federal tax on

Mexico Maintains Neutrality
In War, Says Louis Cabrera
New York, Aug. 21. Louis Ca
brera, former minister of finance of
Mexico, just returned from a 25,000
mile tour of South America, whither
he went last December to attend a
conference of Latin-American neutral
nations at Buenos Aires, declared to
day his trip would, in an indirect way,
"contribute to a better understanding
and more cordial relationship between
Mexico and the United States."
Mr. Cabrera expressed the belief the
nationalization of the oil and miner
al lands of Mexico would not interfere
with production and that the allied
fleets would still be able to obtain
all the fuel they require at Tampico
Charges of pro-Germanism in Mex
ico were denounced by Mr. Cabrera,
who insisted that strict neutrality
was being maintained.
