His Bai was fixed at $600. Voicing reiteration of policies foe which he was criticised at the Elrod caucus in Huron last tuesday United states senator Peter Norbeck. In Mitchell yesterday afternoon authorized the evening Republican to quote him As continuing to stand for As Good a Market for the Farmers As for the manufacturers and As a pocked to income tax reduction for the special Benefit of the Large taxpayers if it was meant by the Resolution at the Huron meeting of Norbeck opponents that senator Norbeck a to be condemned for his membership in the farm bloc the statement Given to the evening Republican will be understood As a re affirmation of his affiliation with that group. To invites comparison senator Norbeck a statement follows a concerning the a a Ming o in Gram at Washington the All important a thing is to reduce the expenses of Tho government. Substantial Steps j have been taken but much More can be done. I invite careful examination of my record in this respect and also comparisons. J a tax reduction is desired by everybody but More especially by Large i business interests which pay Large amounts annually. There Haji been a some difference in opinion As to whether we should not substantially reduce our National debt before we abolish the High income taxes. A in the four years i have been at j Washington i have found the Majori qty of Congress anxious to reduce taxes but there has always been a j division Over the question of whether i the heavy reduction should go to the i Small tax payers or to the Large Busi Ness men. Present Relief temporary a during the last five years the Northwest has gone through a ser i ious depression. The balance of the country has been fairly prosperous. And continues to be. The tax Relief i has largely been in the interests of i those who have enjoyed Prosperity in this country. The All important Quot thing is that any tax reduction plan adopted should be so drawn As to Benefit All classes. A i am pleased to know that step will be taken in the problem of bringing the agricultural Dollar to Par value in Purchase Power and keeping it there. The present Good Price on farm products is largely due to crop failures in certain sections. It is temporary and Uncertain in it very nature. Will continue fight a co operative marketing is All right but it is a very Small step i % that direction and entirely ineffective even when directed by the Federal government. During recent year Long strides have been made in cooperative marketing. Many of these co operatives Are opposed to government direction. They claim it will work to their disadvantage. The High Cost of manufactured products Calla for a correspondingly High Price for farm products. If the prices o what we produce in the Northwest Are not maintained we cannot stand for High prices on manufactured goods a of course i am going to support any measure that. I think will be helpful to our agricultural interests but the solution does not seem to be near at hand. There is a Long hard fight Ahad of us.
