ANSWERS "VOTER AND
To the Editor: I have been reading
an article by "Voter and Taxpayer,"
who advises tho citizens of Salem to
vote yes on the Richardson bonding
measure. He sagely asks us to purchase
something which we already have, and
we are satisfied, with present condi
tions and his "arguments" prove that
his measure is totally devoid of merit.
In answer to the suggestion or objec
tion of some, as to danger of munici
pal bankruptcy that Salem issued some
eighty thousand dollars worth of bonds
and triumphantly asks," "Is Salem
bankrupt " ignoring the fact that his
proposed measure -would put the city
in debt for more than a million more
is certainly leading in that direction.
Let us consider for a moment, all of
Saltan's bonded and other indebted
ness, even at this time, then add an
other million to it, for us to .pay tax
es on, then, further consider the two
InilKons deficit hanging over the tax
payer which he must make good, anu
the absolute certainty that the next
biennial period, will greatly increase
our taxes, and the certainty that the
end of the war, and the reconstruction
period, taxes will probably be immense
ly increased. I ask any sane citizen if
it "is anything short of insanity to pile
up a million of bonded indebtedness
on top of what we are carrying, and
tuust continue to carry for years to
Tax Bill' Dangerous

ought to be defeated by the
voters on Novtmber 5," said
H. D. Bodino, tax collector of .
"I think that this bill should
bo discussed from every stand-
point before its passage for it is
my opinion that the law docs
not give adoquato protection
to the taxpayer. Moreover, I
would not accept the office of
tax collector, and I think tho
other well informed men would
not care to assume the respon-
sibility of such a position in
tho event that the law passes."

"Well, air, Tanlae has not only en

said Harry B. Wheeler, who is ain-

"About a year ago," he continued,
"I began to suffer, with intestinal in
digestion that, in spite of all I could
do, got worse, and worse till I was in
a terrible condition. Everything I
would eat fermented and I would e

knife cutting clean across my stomach.
I got ao weak that I could hardly do a
thing, and it was only my will power
that kept me going at all. . When I
would get home at night I would be
so weak and in ao much pain that my
wife was already with a hot water bot
tle to put right on me, and even then
I would be in such agony at times I
thought it would drive me distracted.
My hips ached with rheumatism, and
the muscles of my right arm and leg
would get all drawn into knots, and at

I was going to die.
"l tried everything I could hear or
to get relief, but nothing did me any
good. Then my sister-in-law, who had
been suffering with rheumatism, got
me to try Taulac, as it had done her
so much good. I got a bottle and- when
I found it was helping me, I juet kept'

President Wilson's forcible reply to
Germany , tvaa eminently satisfactory.
The door to peace is opca only -when
the kaiser surrenders; lays down his
armg and irrevocably accopts Presi
dent Wilson's 'peace articles. Germany
is, of course, not ready to tako any
sueh step; and fighting may continue
several months, or may end in a few
weeks should General Fuch win a decis
ive victory, as eventually he certainly
will. Our troops and those of the allies
continue their victoiiojis process un
checked. Absolute and unconditional
surronder of tho Gorman army is their
supreme object, with no parleying un
til that object is accomplished. The
world has learnod by bitter experience
that the present Germau government
is insincere and untrustworthy. Presi
dent Wilson wisely told Germany the
plain truth in this respect. Peace with
the rTohenzollfjrns is impossible. They
and their military associates have mis
led Germany and brought down upon
that unhappy nation tho haitred of the
cntiro world. History furnishes no oth
er such remarkable example of univer-..
sal and bitter hatred; not sn., ajuong

Gormany has becomo tho greatest out

the world; tho result of pushing inordi

most barbarous warfare that science
and force could devise. There can be
no dealings, nor any real peace discus

ascendancy is permanently broken.
That is a task which will require su

One of the most satisfactory results
of the last liberty loan was its wide
distribution among the people; the lat

individuals participated. This is. won

of Americans to win the war and will

money market by completion of the
loan, and the situation is etill one that
calls for" strict conservatism. Tho
banks are carrying a heavy load. Cred
it, though sound, has been largely ex

modities have had not a littlo to do
with this expansion. Our governmint
will continuo to absorb large sums dur
ing tho balance of the year, both thru
band subscriptions and taxation. The
crop movement is about over, and this
fact will release considerable funds,
but the loan committee at New York is
unable to materially relax its control

had started off on a rather wild and
hazardous rise, transactions roaching
over a million shares per day. Consid
