jug the subject of state income dis
bursements before the governors'
conference hcre today, Governor
Willinm C, Sproul of Pennsylvania
told of efforts nude by fiscal heads
here to raise necessary revenues for
municipalities, state and nation
without imposing a burden upon the
State s industries.
In Pennsylvania, the governor
said, no direct state tax is levied
upon the uroperty of the people,
needed revenues being derived from
taxes upon capital stock, securities
and the earnings of certain classes
of corporations, upon inheritances
and from fees and licenses.

He said it had been possible to
avoid kvying upon capital stock of
"We are still nursing our 'infant
industries'- here, he said, nor do
we tax our vast mineral products,
the value of which alone amounts to
well on to $2,000,000,000 a year.
"A 1-cent pe rton tax upon coal
mined in Pennsylvania alone would
vietd $30,000,000 per annum, and a
5-mill tax upon the capital Stock of
corporations engaged in manufactur
, ing, which are now exempt, the same
rate as is paid by transportation and
many other companies would yield

"It will, therefore, be seen that
our fields of taxation hey are still
inviting. It is our desire, however,
not to impose taxes which vill re

increase in the price of commodities.

the federal government,". Governor
Sproul said, "was a more difficult

Omaha Business Men
Cheered by Bright
"I hate to think of where this
country would have been if we had
not slowed down for sober second
thought," said a business man yes
terday. "We would have all been
riding around in airplanes, until
there was a awful crash."
A general topic among business
men is the interview with C. W.
Russell in'The Bee on the promising
aspects of financial ' readjustment.
Numerous men of affairs endorsed
Mr. Russell's statement that there
are many reasons to be glad the
dollar is regaining its old purchasing
power. People are said to be in
creasing their production and this
applies also to business men who
liadjurned their acairs oyer to
managers while they did nothing.
Omaha doesn t need any calamity
howlers, but a few more men who
will look on the bright side of busi
ness conditions mean a lot to the
city," said Thomas Qulnlan, general
manager of the Brandeis stores.
"Any-man will begin to feel grggy
if half a do?cn' fellows tell him he
is lodking sick, and in the same way
optimism is catching. If peope will

Slayer Fondles Brace of

Identity Among Friends in Mexico. -
By C. A. SLOAN.
Cbiraco Tribune-Omaha Bee Leased Wire.
Dallas, Tex., Dec. 2. On a lonely
country road at midnight, as she
fondled a brace of loaded automatic
pistols, Miss Clara Smith Hamon
confessed killing Jake L. Hamon,
Oklahoma millionaire and politician,
to a chauffeur E. W. Salhs of Dal
las, according to Sallis' story.
The chauffeur'9 tale, given for the
first tunc today in a sworn state
ment, is one of hectic melodrama.
It relates a narrow . escape from
death by in unsuspecting village
marshal at Waxahachie; it tells of
an attempted night flight in an air
plane from Dallas to aan Antonio
and a plan at San ' Antonio for a
quick change to another plane bound
for over the border, where extradi
tion is forgotten. -
It tells of gambler friends of the
woman in Juarez, Chihuahua, Tor
reou and Calientes of plans to hifle
like olden bandits in the dingy war
rens of a Mexican town.
It tells of confession without re
morse and without regret save that
she did not kill her victim -more
quickly and more painlessly. And it
tells of the crime in a hysterically
calm voice, of swift changes of pur
pose and destination, of fear of the
law's pursuit and many other things.

"The Asiatic question is one for
national solution. Local legislation
in California will be futile. It "will
but aggravate the problem. The
gentlemen's agreement has served
its 'day and should be superseded by
laws determined by congress and
administered by American officials;
"The regulation of immigration
from every country should be
handled on the same general prin
ciples. This alone will avoid hu
miliating race discrimination. - The
amount of immigration which
America can wisely admit fronuany
given people should not exceed the
number of th&t people that We ;can
assimilate, Americanize and steadily
employ. This 'amount should 'be
continuously adjusted in view- of
carefully ascertained facts to '"the
changing economic conditions of the
Urge Law Revision.
"The standards for naturalization
should be raised and the privilege
of citizenship should then be open
to everyone lawfully in America who
duly qualifies. All special law?
dealing with the Chinese should be
repealed. Chinese in America
should be under the same laws that
are applied to others and should re
ceive, as our treaties promise, 'most
favored nation treatment''
