I. i i i Little Chance of Reclamation Bill Passing Hi Project! In Western Ne. .rj.l Will Suffer If Measure FU JUrJing Noncommittal. WaUton, April 27. (Special.)

Tat re turn have been thrinking to alarm ingly of late at to greatly itrengtlien the responsible party leaders in their intintence upon the utmost in econ omy. Bonui Bif Factor. Another factor in the question is the pretence in the house bill of he land settlement feature for sowers at contained in the original Mondell bill, creatine an independent soldier settlement board. Senator McCitm her of North OaVota. chairmar of the finance committee which hat charge of the bonus hill !n the upper houe. is said to be out after its land settlement and reclamation provi iont with a strong ax ground to a fin point. The North Dakotan's aversion to reclamation Hates from the arly failure of the Williston project in hit home state some vears ago. In th:s enterprise, irrigation tv pumpinif proved a costly experiment, not navinir the expense of the operation. It was unfortunate for the cause f reclamation that practically its only , failure honld have been in Senaa , tor MrCimiher s state. WTvle 'he American T.egion repre sentatives in Washington arc not fightinjr the Smith-McN'anr 1ill. thev are. of course, activelv for the soldVr settlement feature of the bon us Ml. If the latter should fail they would he for a more general rcclamn- tion legislation, as under the general 1w now existing the vetentn ha a 60-nav entry preference where new nnn' up. Moreover. .. cmj,i,.WrNarv hill orovidet tnat exserv're men be ffiven preference at annlVants for employment on any project 'orfc. l - Qtiestion of Legality. It is argued in favor of the sol dier settlement reclamation proposal that ther.e will be no question as to the constitutionality of -the legisla tion, the appropriations beinj made specifically and primarily-for the benefit of former soldiers. On the other hand, it is contended that there it some, question concerning the Smith-McNary bill, which would tax all of the states for Work that can be done in only a part of the country. The rest, of course, would receive indirect benefits. The stake of the west is great under either -bill. For instance, in Nebraska there is' the great project on the lower Platte between North Platte and Kearney, which would exceed, the existing North Platte project in magnitude. This great enterprise is now being mapped out and surveyed under a special, ap propriation. The field work will he completed this month. Feasible reservoir sites have been selected and the high lite canals have been laid but. , ' F F. Smith, the engineer in charge, wij! take about three months longer to complete the office work in connection with survey, and then will be able to report. In partial reports made from time to time he has indicated that mere win oe enough of a drop in the principal canal, one of nearly 150 feet, to af- iord fine power possibilities. Nebraska Cost Lo)w. General Goethals, reporting recent ly on the great Columbia Basin project in the state of Washington, recommended that construction be proceeded with, despite the fact that the cost is estimated to be as. high as $145 an acre. The estimated cost of the Jower Platte project is not a half or a third that much. The 26 existing reclamation projects of the country, upon which work is still being done, will not be affected by the fate of the Smith McNary bill. They -were cared for in the interior department appropria tion bill. For the fiscal year end ing July 1, 1923, the North Platte project gets an appropriation of $1, 690,000. This is the second largest of existing projects, costing $11, 500.000. The Boise (Idaho) project calls for $12,500,000. Over $1,250,000 has already been paid into the government treasury on the North Platte project. Only about $250,000 is overdue on this enterprise as a result of the recent price crisis in farm products.. The sum in arrears is but an insignificant part of the whole. The rights of those who are behind in their pay ments has been fully protected by special legislation. No Overproduction. Proponents of reclamation are not alarmed over any present sur plus of farm products in the United States. They quote Dr. E. D. Ball, director of scientific work. United States Department of Agriculture, who says: "If some one possessed a magic wand that would restore the world to normal conditions, we would suddenly be confronted with the fact that there is no overproduction; that what the world is suffering from is underconsumption.

I 4 I V M O On C:: Bryan Pays $ 1 00 "to See College Professor Guilty of Cowardly Evasion" on Darwin Morgantown, W. Va., April 27. William Jeunitigs Bryan has sent a check for $100 to Dr. Spangler, pro lessor of botany in West Virginia university, at reward for answering certain questions on evolution put by Mr. Bryan in a recent address here. Dr. Spangler is undecided whether he will accept the money because Mr. Bryan took the posi tion he had proved nothing, and in the letter accompanying the check declared that "it is worth $100 to me to see a college professor guilty of cowardly evasion." Mr. Bryan's challenge-was to any university protessor who could har monize the Bible and the principles of evolution, 3nd Dr. Spangler un dertook the task, claiming the re ward. The letter carrying the check to Dr. Spangler was addressed to Rev. W. O. Caylor of Morgantown. and said in part: . "Mr. Spangler's letter does not an swer a single question that I asked. I asked that any believer in the Dar winian question as applied to man not enough food in the world at pres ent to provide for normal consump tion. .If buying power could be re stored tomorrow, the surpluses would almost instantly disappear. The peak of agricultural produc tion per capita of population in the United. States was passed in 1898, nearly a quarter, of a century ago. Agricultural production almost kept pace with the population! increase for some little time after that date, but in the last decade it' has steadily and even more rapidly fallen, Sta tisticians have estimated that our population at the close of this cen tury will be more than 220,000,000, and have placed the probable time at which we shall begin to import the staple foods at from 15 to 30 or more years. Even if it should turn out to be the longer period, it is time we should be considering tK problem not only from the national standpoint, but from its effect on agriculture. Randall for Governor Club Formed at Coleridge Coleridge, Neb., April 27. (Spe cial.)

GIVE A BABY Constipation, biliousness and lika annoying ilia will quickly disappear A MOTHER is always anxious to give the safest and best medicine to a constipated baby, but is puzzled which to select. Let her decide by the ingredi ents on the package. Every bottle of Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin has the formula printed plainly on the outside of the carton u nder the portrait of Dr. Caldwell, who wrote the prescription in 1892. You will find that it is a combination of Egyptian Senna and other simple laxative herbs with pep sin. It will not gripe the baby, and it is free from narcotics. A bottle sufficient to last a family several months can be had at any drug store, and the cost is only about a cent a dose. While no one, young or old, need take a drastic purgative like salts or calomel, be espe cially careful what you give a Hero's Grave Gen.

Spangler's letter means nothing. He tries to make it appear that evolution is consistent with the Bible, which evolutionists do not as a rule believe. I am not willing, however, that he should claim that I refused to pay the $100. It is worth $100 to me to see a college professor guilty of cowardly evasion and you will please give him the check and at the same time ask lum to answer to the questions which I enclose." Enclosed were five questions, the first of which read: "Are you willing to put in writing and sign a statement declaring that you believe you are the descendant of an aper Mr. Spangler said today he had not decided whether he would keep the $100. but he would refuse to an swer the questions, which he de scribed as being no part of Mr. Bryan's original offer.

Taylor Upsets Political Dope Plan "of Demos to Gobble Up Third Party Hampered by Filing of Revolt Leader. Lincoln, April 27. (Special Tele gram.) W. J. Taylor, leader of the revolt in the third party against the Wray-Norton combination, filed to day as a candidate for the state sen ate from the Twenty-third district. He filed as a progressive. The Taylor filing on the progres sive ticket caused visible disappoint ment among democrats interested in a Bryan-Hitchcock fusion aimed to bring angry third party men into the democratic ranks. Taylor will fight any attempt to worm Hitchcock in as a progressive democratic candidate; and from appearances here today the Bryan-Hitchcock tieup will be treat ed with as much scorn among the buck privates in the democratic ranks as the Wray-Nortoir tieup was re ceived in third party ranks. Democrats hoped Taylor would lead disgruntled third " party men back to the democratic party if "Brother Charlie" Bryan would an nounce as a candidate for governor.

Like a lightning flash in the night the announcement that Germany and Russia had signed a treaty behind the backs of the other powers at Genoa was a sudden revelation of a possibility that publicists have been discussing ever since the Versailles Treaty was signed. The treaty signed by Germany and Russia re-establishes full diplomatic relations between the two countries on an equality basis, and mutually cancels all war claims as well as claims' arising from the nation alization of property. Further, "the two Governments undertake to give each other mutual assistance for the alleviation of their economic difficulties in the most benevolent spirit" Ac cording to the Philadelphia Public Ledger, "it foreshadows a new European line-up, with Russia and Germany forming what may become a military as well as an industrial and political alliance against the rest of the Old World." The danger to Western Europe is even greater than it was in 1914, declares Maurice Casenave, former French High Commissioner in the United States. "Here is Germany recog x nizing Bolshevism and joining with it. This has a meaning for America as great, in my mind, as the war had. The Ainerican Government and American public opinion ought to see the sig- nificance of these events, but if th,ey do not now they will be disagreeably shocked by the consequences." One British spokesman declared that ."the signing of the separate treaty was a ' challenge to the whole world. .
