..- : Treasury .Tax Rebates J '
FOR intellectual dishonesty we know ot nothing in this
'campaign, to equal the brazen attempt of the Portland
Journal to stampede the electorate into votine against Her
bert Hoover on the ground of tax rebates made by the treas
ury department. It nas exhumed the old campaign fodder of
Erk Barrel Jack Garner which was copied by Billy Delzeli
two years ago, and insinuates that tax rebates were made in
corrupt collusion by the treasury , department to bier indus
trial concerns, many of which thereupon became contribu
tors to republican campaign funds. The Journal publishes a
list, headed by the United States Steel corporation, with re
bates of nearly $100,000,000.
; . The Journal tells only part of the story. It does not tell
the story ox additional assessments imposed by the internal
-revenue; department against these and other corporations
and individuals. The facts are that up to one year ago the
government had collected ; in additional assessments TWO
BILLION dollars more than it paid out in rebates. Any one
who nas paid an income . tax knows that the government
checks; every return, and that he may be assessed more tax
than he paid, or he may get a refund if he overpaid. Is the
government therefore crooked? Not at all; it is merely be
ing honest with taxpayers under the law. We challenge the
Portland Journal to name:a specific rebate which at the time
it was made was not a proper, and just settlement A special
department of the tax division", headed by. a very competent
civil service.employe handled these questions of rebates"; and
they were subsequently gone over by a committee of con
gress of which Congressman Hawley was chairman. Hawley
was satisfied as to the justice of the refunds. Does the Jour
nal accuse Hawley of being a crook or in connivance with
crookedness in the treasury.
i JJ The Oregonian has gone farther into the question and
brought out' the fact that the Portland Journal itself got
refunds of over $23,000. How much did the Journal con
tribute to republican campaign funds? Does the Journal im
ply there was any corruption in the refund which it ob
tained? The Oregoiian further called the roll of democratic
beneficiaries of tax refunds:
"John W. DaYfic, 6ne-th democratic candidate for pres
ident, contributed 1 to recent democratic campaigns the sum of
' f 10,000. Corporations In which he is a director hare ntcelred
tax rebates totalling $3,848,067.52. 4
: ,r"? Alfred E. Smith, democratic candidate for president in
1128. has contributed to recent denfocratic campaign? the sum
of SHOO.: A corporation in which he is a .director has received
tax rebates amounting to $4$,26.T6. -, '
' "rranklin D. Rooaerelt, present democratic candidate for
, president, has contributed $3000 to recent democratic campaigns,
t. Corporations in which he la a director hare received tax rebate
amounting to $48,889.22.. .
. ' y John J. Raskob, financial "angel of the democratic party
has contributed direct! and as loans $812,000 to recent dem
ocratic campaigns. He has recelred a personal tax refund of
$3,281.80 and is a director in corporations that have received
- tax refunds amounting; to $8,214,848.81.
, If rn ii,t could bo greatly elaborated. It Includes Bernard .
' M. Baruch, Arthur Curtiss James, Herbert H. Lehman, John D.
Ryan and many-other, largo contributors to the democratic
party '. h ",
. U Such distortion of the truth, such innuendos against
public-servants, such' false propaganda for campaign pur
poses discredits the editorial page of the Journal. It not only
saps confidence in the republican administration, which was
it purpose, but it poisons the popular mind against all gov
ernment officials. Such an abuse of its trust by a great pub
lit journal jeopardizes the very foundation of popular gov
ernment which rests on an informed public opinion.

"Hoover must be elected. He un

A challenge to youth:
The National Young Republi

circulation, had la it Juno issue,
under the heading, "Young Re

writer is pleased to commend to

boy and girl ot reading ago in this
community: '

in au but a dosen of the last 78
years, major republican policies
have prevailed in the nation. A
nation threatened with dissolution
when this new party came into
authority, and of comparatively
small consequence among the
world powers, it advanced under
republican policies and republican
management to first place in ec
onomic power and political sta
bility among all the nations ot the
world. The republican nartr has
been from its beginning a great
constructive political force la
America. Its conduct has not been
entirely without fault nor its rec
ord without blemish, but looklna
back over a history of 78 rears, it
may oe saia without fear of con
vincing contradiction, that no oth
er political organisation has ever
la all history contributed so much
toward thaapbuUdiag of a nation.

hopeful sign to a girl who had long

But Rosalie couldn't know that
which annoyed Ted most.
Barb Roth was making an open

I Rosalie was frank, honest; she
had far more beauty, more heart,
more talent than Barb- but she was
frank about itcame out in a gold
town that spun her before the
crowd like a dazzling promise.
Rosalie was warm, brilliant, govt
geous; but you bad to pursue Barb
to a far corner of the sky a rare
moment in your arms, and then she
ned behind a cloud.
That damn Stone was dancing
too close, to her that's it, Rosie.
Rosalie cbuld handle herself.
"She's stunning," Barb admitted.
"You're lucky, Ted."
"I'm lucky?"
"She's mad about you." s

know?" .

Admission from Barbsweet.
"It's beea a long time, Ted."
"Just what was it we quarreled
about, anyhow?" he asked.
. "Yon always seemed to find
something."
The heavens rocked; clouds
bmaped. It wasn't the way she
said it, or even what she said. Per
haps he glanced to her eyes too
soon, but he caught there the same
tormenting message: I can get you
back whenever I want yon.
"I'm afraid yo ust fumbled,
Barb," he spoke decisively,
"What do you mean?" She was
trying to bold him with her eyes.
"X don't thinlr m find anything
more to quarrel about."
- "How nice."
It didn't register. Ted felt his
band at the throttle driving a team,
looking for weak spots, beating his
opponents with contemptuous eyes,
worrying them, cracking (hem.
You couldn't fight a girl; but you
didn't have to stick around with

Ted was getting a slant oa a new
sector through Pidgc All his life
he had had a slight enry for the
play for Pidge; and that poor hope- big names on the society page, con-
less, helpless one was stumbling in
to the trap.
Ted was annoyed; be felt like
shoutinz: You have money and
position and personality and the
captaincy can't you leave my girl
alone?
But he didn't shout, for he rea
lized how silly that would be.

jost like to give her a play to get

But Barb wasn't around; for, ac
cording: to instructions from his
father, Pidge had called the manag
er of the Riverside.
"They're having a big shindig
and want me to come out." he re
ported. "How about it IT
