As Ltd. A Tate wide system of inspection. Here we were right our report of the farm Bureau federation stand on National taxation in this column has been questioned. In fact we have heard report that some farm Bureau officials have denied it absolutely. We wish to assure our readers that our article was Correct Tho Minneapolis chamber f Commerce Mut stand trial 5 a or the Fedora Trade commission it it a charge King to crush out the equity cooperative Exchange and other cooperatives dealing in Grain. I ii commission to a formally an noun the issuance of a complaint if a unfair o my it edit Ion against the handier its officers directors and members. After answers have been flit i by the defendants the Case will Fie heard. The owners publishers and editors of a eth cooperative Trade a Are like \ deep scheme in part the complaint show that the Minneapolis chamber of Commerce conducts a Grain Exchange which handles some 200,000.000 bushels of Grain annually that the chamber also but Sells and a in every respect. Our Points were taken from a a report of the National Industrial conference a by c. B. Gregory special representative for the american farm Bureau federation. J. R. Howard president and h. C. Mckenzie. Chairman of the taxation committee of the Bureau were also present at the conference. The report sent out by the farm Bureau was the report of the conference.

A the committee recommend.-,�?� said the report a the repeal of the excess profits tax. Which will reduce estimated revenues for 1921 by $900,000,000.

It is alleged the follow local farm Bureau leaders do not like this tax program they should do All teat they can to get it changed. It is certainly not honorable to deny it Quot does Public opinion in your judg a Hen talking with the folks Back ment seem to favor ownership and Horn and at the same Tim to present operation of industries by the Federal it to Congress As purporting to a what government in Competition with Prith it Farmers stand for.

An crime wave in new York City wholesale jewellers plan to organize vigilance committee new York with a cop at nearly every Cornel Quot it beset with murderers robbers gun men anti thurs that wholesale jew or today were planning to organize a vigilance committee. Police lieutenant Floyd Horton near the Corner of Broadway and 14<> Street last night saw a gang of Auto Bandit backing out of a building where they Bael just Complete a hold up. They were flourishing their guns. A woman was among them. Horton Drew his revolver and leaped to the running Board of the car Sis it tarted. He a.

For if Tan a read Cone tits the decision. It Means practically that All of the so called sedition acts in Trio various staus have a Good Chance of being held valid. Aside from the problem of providing As Many kinds of patriotic a. Thor Are states in the Union All of these acts Art so loosely drawn that an citizen who Speaks in Public could be considered guilty of sedition.

But this attention of the kept press shows to the Wise How rapidly senti int for Public ownership is growing Ontario a latest venture those w to have heard of the great Success w hich the province of Ontario has a in furnishing electricity to its people at Cost will not be surprised that Ontario has increased its investment in that Field.
