WASHINGTON, Aug. 22. With a number of amend
ments, the McNary senate bill, which would make $1,000,000,
000 available through the war finance corporation for stimu
lating exportation of agricultural products was passed today
by the house.
, The McNary bill is an administration measure. It was
placed in charge of Senator McNary. As introduced in tho
senate, it authorized the issuance of $2,000,000,000 in bonds
by the war finance corporation. This was cut down in the
house to $1,000,000,000. The bill is regarded as a construct
ive measure for -the relief of the farmer, livestock raiser,

Sharp Decrease In Revenues
of Accident Commission
Is Observed
Because revenues of the state
industrial : accident commission
have been decreasing for several
months, with indications that not
much relief will be offered by the
elimination of about 30 employes
on September 1, it is probable that
another batch of employes will be
dropped next month, according to
information yesterday emanating
from the commission.
Early last month it was ascer
tained, that the administration al
lowance of 10 per cent based on
receipts was not big enough to
meet the department payroll. The
rather sudden decrease in revenue
la' attributed in the main to the
closing down of war Industries, to
the effect of business depression
on the lumber industry and to a
general reduction in wages
amony many, industries.
AH employes who are dropped
from the department are given 30
days' notice.

Republican Party Pledged
Bonus Legislation, Idaho
Man Contends
WASHINGTON' Aug. 22 Pres
ident Harding's appearance be
fore the senate last month in op
position to passage of the soldier
bonus bill started a storm of
debate in the senate tonight when
the shipping board deficiency bill
was being considered, during
which his course was criticised
and defended. The discussion was
started by Senator La FoHette,
Republican, Wisconsin, who re
ferred to the resolution introduc
ed in the house by Representative
Cockran, Democrat, New York,
criticising the president for ad
dressing one branch of congress
on pending legislation, and flrew
many senators into the fray; ,
' Precedent Cited.
Senator Lodge, the Republican
leader, called attention to the
"peace without victory" speech
of Former President Wilson to
the senate prior to A mericaa- en
trance into the war, and his ad
dress on the suffrage amendmeut
-It would be a sad day, the
Massachusetts senator said, for
the republic when anyone of the
three branches of the govern
ment could not confer with an
other. Judgment Surrendered.
Declaring it was not necessary
to "eulogize Mr. Harding," Sena
tor Borah. Republican, Idaho, stid
that on the question of the bonus
"wo surrendered our judgment
to his dictation." If Ihe presi
dent wanted a precedent, there
were plenty, he declared, adding
that this did not change the situ
ation. Mr. La Follette assailed the
president for what he described,
as executive Interference with the
legislative branch of the govern
ment. He asserted that the pres
ident was brought into the debat
to prevent passage of the bill,
and that hi3 action was without
authority under the constitution.
? "Is Rlaofc Tage."
"It were well if that black page
in the senate's history could be
destroyed and forever forgotten,"
Mr. La Follette declared. "It was
remarkable that alarm should
seizu the president's mind when
the soldier bonus bill was pend
ing and appear at the senate to
rescue the nation's finances from
utter destruction."
Mr. Lodge declared he saw "no
reason for debarring" the presi
dent from congress and Senator
Knox. Republican, Pennsylvania,
"And I see no reason why con
gress should be barred from th-s
White HousR, as has occurred in
the past eight years."
Mr. Lodge also cited numerous
constitutional provisions which he
said gave the president full au
thority to address either branch
of congress at his pleasure, say
ing that it would be impossible
for the president to speak to both
houses if only one were la ses
sion. Asserting that he never
had heard " such a violent de
nunciation oft Wilson," as had
been directed at Mr. Harding,
Senator Kellogg, Republican, Min
nesota, said he was unable to
understand the reason for it.
Mr. Borah explained that ho
was in full accord with the pres
ident on the bonus question, but
that his criticism , was aimed at
the appearance of a) president,
whether Mr. Wilson or Mr. Hard
ing. "Pitiable Spectacle."
"I am unable to find anything
like it prior to the Wilson ad
ministration," h said. "With all
due respect, I know of no more
pitiable spectaple ever presented
to the people than that of the
senate throwing down the bonus
bill 'after It had een reported
and the president hall come here
to oppose It. It was because he
came here that ' we surrendered
our Judgment to bis dictation.

made a solemn pledge for enact

Action this week in spraying the elm trees of the city
to save them from the beetle pest that has invaded the city
is absolutely imperative, declares Charles A. Park, president
of the state board of horticulture. And while there is ho
authority for any city department to take over the work the
feeling among those who are familiar with the ravages of
these insects is that something should be done, and that at
once, whether it isby the citizens singly or collectively.
Speaking of the situation Joint
ly, Mr. Park said:
"The elm tree3 around Salem
were defoliated 0 few weeks ago
by the elm leaf bettle. The trees
are now putting forth new leaves.
I wish to call attention to tlie
fact that the second generation of

ROSEBURG, Or., Aug." 22. Two suitcases belonging to
Dr. R. M. Brumfield were received by local authorities today
from Calgary, where Brumfield was captured, on a charge
of slaying Dennis Russell.
One of the suitcases was old and contained personal ef
fects of the prisoner. The other was brand new and the
authorities refused to make1 known its contents. They are
guarding it closely.
Attorneys A. N. Orcutt and Dexter Rice were in confer
encexwith Brumfield at the jail most of the day. .They said
he did not discuss his case with them, but requested them t$
take charge of all his property for the benefit of his creditors.
Brumfield this afternoon requested Sheriff Starmer to
permit no more newspaper men in the jail, as he was unusual
ly nervous following an interview this morning in which the
prisoner was more upset than, at any time since his return
here. At that time the dentist shook his. fist at the inter
