Farmers Cannot Hope For Any Republican Party Ha* Saved

of the Northwest who expect La
Follette’s plan of government owner
ship of railroads to give them lowei
freight rates are doomed to bitter dis
appointment, In the event be shoulc
be elected and be in a position t<
make his plans effective, it was de
dared at the Republican State Cea
tral committee headquarters here bj
Chairman I. L. Patterson.
The fact is. Senator Patterson said
the railroad unions are trying to hood
wink the farmers in the Northwest
states into belief that lower freight
rates will come along with govern
ment ownership. It was said the con
trary would, in all probability, be th«
"The LaFollette platform says nevei
a word about lower freight rates foi
farmers or anyone else, despite th«
fact they are highly desirable," said
the state chairman. “If LaFollette oi
his cijse adviser* believed for a min
ute government ownership would
bring about lower freight rates os
farm products, the promise would un
questionably have been dangled ai
bait in the platform.
“If one will look Into the railroad
question a little he will find that th*
chief obstacle in the way of lowet
freight rates, which our farms need
very much, is the high scale of pay
that has been forced by the railroad
"We farmers have very little 1*
common with the railroad union«
when It come* to working together.
Our interests are not the Bame. What
we want from the railroads is lowai
freight rates. The unions are press
ing constantly for higher wages, which
precludes lower rates.
“The railroad unions are the ones
who are getting the money from high
er freight rates. The average wage«
per hour of railroad employes is now
123 per cent higher than it was in
1916 before any rates were advanced.
Here w* see the chief reason why
rates cannot go down.
“Total earnings of the railroad* In
1923 were *2,666.000,000 more than th
1916. Wages paid the same year, e»
elusive of to officials, amounted tc
*1,544,224,000 more than in 1916. Out

farm products that moved to market
between 1916 and 1923 amounted to
about *330,000,000. Of that amount,
the railroads at once handed over to
their employes *191.400,000, or more
than half. The railroads were able to
retain none of these higher rates for
the companies, for net operating In
come has never been so high sine*
1916 as in that year.
“Higher costs of operation cut down
the net. with Increased expenses in
all lines und more taxes. Wages and
taxes take two-thirds of the railway
"Another reason why rates cannot
come down is that the 26 months of
government operation increased ex-
penses of the railroads from *8,106,521
a day to
"In the first five months of 1924,
operating expenses averaged *12.550,-
000 a day, or *1,760,000 a day less
than at the end of government control.
*o a cause of the higher rates we
suffer is the fact there is still left
almost *4.500,000 a day of the increase
in operating expenses that occurred
under government control.
"When the farmers understand the
reason for high freight rate* and real
ize that railroad labor take* more
than half of rate increase- for itself,
they cannot make common cause with
the rail unions and expect to get any
thing in the way of lower ratee. Un

President Coolidge said in his speech
of acceptance that finances of ths
country have been managed by the
Republican administration with a
genius unmatched since the days ol
Hamilton, he meant Just what he said
and gave facts and figures to prove it,
I. L. Patterson, chairman of the Re
publican State Central committee, de
dared in a statement given out here
When it came into office, he said,
the Republican party inherited a leg
acy of debt that stood at about *24,-
000,000,000, of which *7,006,000,008
was in short term obligations to meet
which no provision had been made
Government bonds were far below par
and war tuxes still plagued the people
More than *11,000.000.000 were due
the United States from foreign coun-
tries. The whole people were suffer
ing from a tremendous deflation
Money was scarce and interest rates
An unprecedented financial
problem was presented to the Incom
ing administration. The sums to be
dealt with were so huge that never
before in world history were debts of
such proportions to be paid.
The administration promptly pro
vided a budget system and put It into
operation. This was the keystone in
the arch of Republican finances that
was to bridge the chasm of debt. Tre
mendous savings were effected by it.
For the fiscal year ending June 39,
1921, the expenditures of the govern
ment were *5,538,000,000 and the sur
plus was *86,000,000. Contrasted with
that was the year ending June 30,
1924, when expenditures were *8,497,-
000.000 and the surplus exceeded *500,-
000,000. This was a cut in the annual
cost of government of *2,041,000,000.
The public debt hat beep cut to
about *11,250,000,009, a reduction In
three years of about 12.750,000,000,
which meant a string In interest each
year of about *120,000.009.
The short-time obligations amount
ing to *7,000,000.000 have been eitbei
refunded or paid. Together with all
this, internal revenue taxes have been
reduced twice and many of them re
pealed. During the present fiscal
year, there will be a saving of taxes
to the people of about *6,000,000 every
day. compared with 1921.
Of the amount of debts due this
country from foreign governments, 4*
per cent have been liquidated and
will provide funds for the retirement
of about *13,000,000,009 of the prin
cipal of our national debt in 62 years
During the Republican four years
now ending, the government has taken
a notable step toward economy of ad
ministration, as shown in another way
In 1921, ths last pre-budget year, of
the cost of government collected In
national, state and municipal taxos.
after debt payments, federal expendi
tures were 59 per cent of the total
and those of the states, oltios and
towns 41 per cent.
But In 1923 the federal government
took only 28 per cent of the taxes and
72 per cent were spent by the stated,
cities and towns. These bodies were
showing increasing expenditures, al
though the federal government has
set an example of economy.

NOTICE TO CREDITOR3.
Figuring Water Required
on a Farm
A certain quantity of water is re
quired as the daily output of every
water-supply system, whether it is
pumped by wind or other power and
a storage tank must be provided for
holding the water until it is used, and
for caring for the surplus. If a wind
mill is used to pump the water a tank
large enough to hold a three-day sup
ply of water should bo proviiit'd in or
der to furnish water over a period
when there is little or no wind. If
engine-driven pumps arc used the
tanks need only be largo enough to
hold a single day’s supply, as the en
gine can be operated at any time re
gardless of weather conditions.
The amount of water required for
all purposes from isolated water-sup
ply plants, is, on the average, as fol
lows: For all housaliGld and toilet
purposes allow 25 gal. for each member
of the family; allow 10 gal. for tach
horse, 10 gal. for eaoh cow, 2 gal. for
each hog, and 1 gal. for each sheep.
Applying the rule, the minimum al
lowance for a family of five persons
for household purposes only will be
125 gallons. In order that ample
pressure wall be obtained at all cocks
the storage tank should be elevated
at least 10 ft. higher than the highest
tap and the highor the tank the
greater will be the pressure.
