No Bungling in Massachusetts
THE Massachusetts state police moved swiftly and precise
ly m the capture of the abductors of the McMath girl in
the Cape Cod region last week. There was no bungling; the
. culprits were in the keep within a few hours after the po
lice learned the girl had" been restored to her father. Now
.Judicial processes must be observed, but the probability is
: that the villains will soon receive their punishment. That it
will be severe is scarcely to be doubted.
The success of the Lindbergh kidnaping has prompted
other desperate characters to obtain money the same way.
: while the risks are srreat. the rewards are also great. in tne
last case some $60,000. And the criminals have this advan
tage that the ones expected to provide the ransom are so dis
traught over the safety of their loved one, that they are al
most forced into league with tne kidnapers. Tne lather 01
r the McMath girl, for example, had agreed not to disclose the
girl's return for 48 hours, and was Imng up to his agree
ment out of fear for reprisals to his family.
Whenever a maior crime is not solved the public is apt to
criticise the officers of the law. The New Jersey police have
come in for harsh censure for their failures in the Lind
bergh case. Not only-did the abductors go unapprehended,
out tne Doay os uie cmia iay ior wee as uuuiawaeu,
a short distance of the house. The police doubtless justify
themselves; but the success in Massachusetts ought to serve
to compensate the New Jersey failure, and to warn kidnap
ers that the arm of the law is long, and such wicked deeds
may not always be carried out with the impunity of the
Lindbergh case.
Counties to Pay State
"I OOD old Linn county is the first to remit the first-half of
VH its state tax, ana otner counties are getting reaay to pay.
If the sales tax is adopted in July they will not have to send
in the last half, because the sales tax is a substitute for the
property tax.
Some counties have been protesting against giving the
state the preference on tax collections. Many counties In so
doing will be forced on a warrant basis. They would pre
fer to "pay as we are paid", that is distribute the tax in-
i come among state, county, city, school and port district, just
1 as it is received.
The answer to this is that the state is the sovereign
unit, and that its credit should be preserved. While the cre
dlt of other taxing units should also be maintained, the in
terest of the state is paramount. 1
This is also true; the county which is the tax collector
. gets all the interest on delinquent taxes, which as a general
rule fuDy compensates it for advancing the state's share.
While the other taxing districts do not get this interest, they
are spared all cost of collecting taxes, because the county
does the work and makes the turnover to the subordinate
"L districts.
In bad times like the present, the system doesn't work
perfectly by any means; but on the whole it is about as good
; a plan as may be devised. -

ulTHILE many in this country are keeping their eyes

, over its antics in past weeks, the advice is timely that tney
raise their gaze and watch events in Europe. With the dol
lar dropping to dizzy depths, the future of world trade is at
stake. The Roosevelt program will succeed or fail, not on the
domestic but on the foreign front. It is in that field that the
real battle is being fought, and so far with no indication
of victory.
France has refused to pay the December instalment of
the war debt until a moratorium is granted for the June
payment, which Pres. Roosevelt is quoted as refusing.
3: The united States has been womng hard to get Jsng
land to azree to a tariff truce pending the London confer
ence. But the conservative British ministers, unrestricted by
the assurances of Premier MacDonald, have declined unless
they get a truce on the June debt instalment.
This country stubbornly adheres to the position that it
will not discuss war debts at the economic conference. That
foredooms the conference ta failure. With that a failure, the
outlook for the Roosevelt inflation program in this country
looks gloomy indeed. Not that we will not have inflation;
but that it cannot be controlled.

"Dr. Boyle was born April II,
1815, on a farm in Virginia. He
was a graduate of Kemper med

1845. Took up a donation land

Ford, daughter of Col. Nat. Ford.

years, using it both as a residence
and office. In 1851 he built
large tram house, which stands
today practically as good as when
new. In 18 B 8 Dr. Boyle erected a
building In Dallas, using it for a
drug store and his office. In the

"I've telephoned for the doctor. It's

"Oh, absolutely V agreed Mrs.
FarrelL She was all agog at the

the time the doctor arrived, she had

ily, th means of lit of a class of
citlxens, is Ignored nnd set aside
by a jsdge, so ss to deprive those
citlxens of th means of living.
Ther is no other course of action
for thos citlxens but th law of
self defense. Th only thing they
can do nnd live is to ignore th
Judges ruling oven as th Judge
has Ignored nnd nullified th ac
cepted law. When th farmers in
Iowa took action to protect them
selves from starvation nnd de
manded a moratorium of debts,
which was granted, it was accept
ed as law. When ths Judxe d
elared th law unconstitutional hi
exercised power th constitution
doe not giv him. It is Impossi
ble to Interpret laws with Impar
tial Justice when they are made
by one class, to be obeyed by as
other class. Ths Judge could do
nothing els but obey th re
quirements of his masters, th
wealth owning class. Ths farmers
can do nothing else but Ignore and
disregard th Judge's decision.
Conflict is th Inevitable result
On or th other must bo master.
The fntar win declare th farm
ers ar right even though they ar
crushed now. It was n similar con
flict that brought th American
nation Into existence.
