START FISCAL YEAR
WITH HUGE DEFICIT
"Gone Mad on Conceiving
New Questions That , Will
Reach Into Federal Treas
ury," McCumber Says.
Washington, Jan. 21. Congress
held its "thrift week" celebration
Wednesday, a wave of economy
sweeping both the senate and house.
The result was:
Decision by the house public
buildings committee not to recom
mend passage at this session of a
public buildings bill.
Reduction by the house foreign
affairs committee of the annual di
plomatic and consular service ap
propriations bill to $8,84.1,038, which
is $3,085,125 less than the State de
partment's request and $1,320,0000
less than was appropriated for the
present fiscal year.
Elimination by the senate of an
appropriation of $42,500,000 from the
Americanization bill and substitu
tion therefor of an appropriation of
$6,500,000 restricted to use until the
end of the 1921 fiscal year instead
of an expenditure over four years as
the larger appropriation contem
Senator McCumber, said thaf ac
cording to careful estimates the gov
ernment would start the fiscal year
beginning Tuly 1, with a deficit of
$3,000,000,000. . Should expenditures
for 1921 be kept within the conserva
tive estimate of $6,000,000,000 the
senator thought they might be pro
vided for, but there would be noth
ing left to take care of the left-over
Gone Mad on Spending.
"We have gone mad on the ques
tion of conceiving new questions
that will reach into the federal treas
ury," sard Senator McCumber, re
ferring to the Americanization bill
which is designed to educate illiter
ates and Americanize foreign-born
citizens. "The only thing that will
stop it will be when we get to the
end of the rooe and have to bond
the country to meel expenses."
In cutting down appropriations in
the diplomatic and consular service
bill the house committee denied Sec
retary Lansing's request for in
creases in the salaries of ambassa
dors and ministers. The only in
crease granted over present expendi
tures were a flat $1,000 advance in
salaries to secretaries of - embassies
and legations and an additional item
of $250,000 for passport control,
bring the total for that purpose
up to $440,431.
The drastic cutin appropriations
for rivers and harbors improvements,
ordered by thS house rivers and har
bors committee in paring down the
annual appropriation bill for that
purpose from $42,9000,000 to $12,
400,000, continued to arouse mem

London, Jan. 21. (By The Asso
ciated Press The prince of Wales
was the guest tonight at a large and
enthusiastic dinner of the Pilgrims.
More than 300 persons were pres
ent. The prince made a speech and
reaffirmed his intention to revisit
America, particularly the middle
west and far west, saying that the
best proof that one had enjoyed
a visit was his earnest desire tare
Responding to Baron Des
borough's toast, the prince said:
"Two months ago to the day, I
was very hospitably entertained by
the American Pilgrims at New York
and they were going very strong in'
deed. When Desborough said that
I am domiciled in England, I think
it wouldhave been more correct to
say I am domiciled in the British
"I visited the naval academy at
Annapolis and the military academy
at West Point. The visits were
very interesting to me, as I had been
associated with the United States
army and navy during the war. It
was that association that made it
possible for me not to feel a stran
Had Wonderful Time.
"I had a wonderful time and I
was very touched by the demonstra
tions of good will, not only on my
own account, but because they
were given me as the king's repre
sentative and to the British people
as a whofc. This made me realize
that only personal contact is need
ed to prevent any .misunderstanding
between the American democracy
and our own.
The cordiality has not ceased lie
cause of fny departure. I am still
receiving most charming letters, and
I may add, not all of them from
the fair sex." This occasioned much
lauphter. x '
"There is only one way of showing
that one has enjoyed a visit. That is
by repeating it. I therefore propose
taking the hrst opportunity of pay
ing another visit to the United
States. I am afraid I do not know
when that may be. I hone that then
I may have 'the opportunity of see
ing something of the far west and
of the middle west and of the other
cities and places'! had no time to
visit last November.
Same Good Will Obtains.
"In conclusion, may I say I sin
cerely hope that personal contact
between the British empire and the
great American republic may rapidly
develop. We have the same lan
guage, the same type of democratic
institutions and the same good will
towards all people.
"I thank you for having enter

success to all branches of the Pil

doing so much to promote and foster
continued friendship, good will and
understanding between the peoples

He is attending the conference 'of

"It is altogether likely that the

convention will go there unin
structed and unpledged. While the
sentiment among republicans has
not crystallized, it appears to be cen

leading candidates in Wyoming just
"There is no doubt that General
Pershing hr.s gained very greatly.
Whether he will be a candidate or
not, he has developed much strength.

the commander of the expeditionary
forces until I saw the reception
given him in Cheyenne a short tims
"It was my privilege to ride With
the general, as I did with President
Wilson, and there was no compari
son in the receptions given the two
men. The greeting to General Per
shing was simply astonishing.' It.
was real and amounted to an ova
tion. I do not believe there is any
real sentiment among the western
people, particularly among the sol
diers, against any officer. It has
been my observation that most men
rather favor i man they know or

hearing, had under consideration
questions in the most unusual Min
nesota requisition case, that of Will

in St. Paul, accused of complicity in
the $110,000 robbery December 31 of

children, that they saw the accused

Albany, K. Yv Jan. 21. Investiga-" ;
tfon of the loyalty of the five sus-

asserted at their trial today before
the assembly judiciary committee to-'
involve the question as to whether
socialists "can l'vpocritically mas
querade as a political party, strik
hands with every agency of force 1
and revolution and still make simple
American people understand they

V This assertion was made by Mar--
tin W. Littleton, who withdrew tem- j
nofarily todav as associate counsel
for the committee to handle the ease
of United States Senator Truman;
H. Newberry of Michigan, in con- ,
iiection with whose election charge
of fraud have been brought.
Taking the floor in the height o!
an oratorical battle in which conn-
sel for both sides unlimhered thefr'
heaviest artillery, Mr. Littleton de-;
clared the present investigation will j
not prove "a tempest in a teapot"
Conspires With Soviet." - j
He charged that Trotzky and
nine are attempting -installation in
America of the soviet form of gov
ernment and that before the waves
of public opinion stirred by this case
have subsided "this country will un
derstand that this so-called politi
cal party is the agent and cocon
spirator with the dark forces of the
invisible empire, whose object ia
forcible destruction of constitu-j
tional government in America." '
Opposing a motion that charcet
against the five socialists be nis'-;

"the representation with reference!
to what these five men did and what
they profess and what they engaged
to do stands out as plainly as any-!
thing can stand out that they gave:
their allegiance wholly and solely $9

as the "Internationale".

Morris Hillquit. chief counsel for?

"Mr. Hillquit said yesterday that1,

demanded Mr. Littleton.
"No," said Mr. Hillquit, "the state

what I object to is the inference." -
"I do not intend to have anything,
