Senator Borah of Idaho, who has ar
gued against continuation of the 1916
naval building program, was the princi
pal speaker. A. l W
, "Nearly 90 per cent "of our expendi
tures are for wars, past and anticipat
ed,", said Borah, v "This is the thing
that is driving us to financial disaster.
You cannot relieve taxes to any per
ceptible degree by dismissing a few
clerks in departments.
He urged that a savgge' cut should be
mad: in the 90 per cent rather than
"nibble" in the 10 percent, and ar ad
that the only way this could be accom
plished is through , an "agreement- with
other nations now engaged in naval com
petition. ' ?,. '
' Borah said, however, America should
never; be left without proper security.
"It ehould.be our det nined purpose."
he said, "to obtain security without
bringing bankruptcy." i

this plan is a. motion for discontinuance
of the case, which would mean abandon

sea why so many hungry bunkies of the
Pie Brigade seek the thirtsy job of Fed
eral 'Prohibition Director for the State

think,, a one man job at all, for the lucky
individual who occupies it holds in his
handsr4eaides countless bottles, demi
johns, kegs and barrels of illicit liquor
much largess of politics;! plums for his
perquisite and disposal. It is, indeed and
in fact, quite a, little institution all Its
own. , - ' ' j -''
, For Instance, . Federal Prohibition Di
rector Johnson B. Smith, who now holds
the Job, has to aid him one chief In
spector, two deputy Inspectors and two
clerks, all of whom are selected by him
and appointed upon his recommendation.
. The federal prohibition director him
self receives an annual salary of $3000,
Ihe chief ; deputy is paid $2000. The
deputy inspectors draw $1800 and the
clerks $1400 each. In addition to this
statutory .salary each of them ' is given
a bonus of $240 annually. This gives
