La Fdlette's bluff of windy stuff Is like the distant thunder The wheat is out---Its only chaff And we'll snow the big bluff under. In time of war he showed the white And ranted round "Too proud to fight" But when the enemy's troops had fled He came to front with banner red rote for Coolidge; don't hesitate; Our country's honor is at stake. On this La Follette cast a frown Don't be a tool for windy stool For other nations to plunder But with the ladies take a stand And blow this "blob" to thunder. --Frank N. Jellison. BLACK OUT TO WIN SEAT Lloyd Black, of Everett, Snohomish county candidate for Congress from this second district, expects to con- tinue his .speaking campaign until election. He has been speaking ower the district for the past six weeks on the average of four times daily and reports exceptionally enthusiastic audiencelL Apparently he has made a very effective campaign for Republicans admit that the outcome is in doubt while the Black supporters claim Black will be elected by not less than five thousand majority. Lloyd Black personally feels very confident and states that if Snohomish county, where he has lived so long, gives him a loyal home county vote that his election is certain. He reports that the district outside of Whateom and Snohomish counties will vote for Black but that he wants a sufficient vote in Snohomish county to take care of Whatcom county where his opponent 'lives. 1924 CAMPAIGN RALLY Bring out the good old bugle, boys We'll start a grand campaign And send a messsage through the land Broad cast it o'er the main The grand old ship is out to Win With Coolidge at the wheel No filibuster crossed the bow Of a Yankee clippers keel Now listen well to .what I say And don't forget the date For on next month, November Fourth We'll settle the broncho's fate The ship is trim both fore and aft All sails are drawing fine The grand old party's out to win And we'll make the blobie whine Just drop a flea in wind bag's ear This tip he'll take from me His litle punt might sail all right While the red flag's flowing free He started out with flowing sail To in the ::White ouse shine But the only boost he'll ever get Is your sammie's number nine. --F. N. gellison LANG .:- ..... |1 Public Benefit From Private Operation In the last three years the Milwaukee Railroad has paid to the 12 states served by its lines about $27,000,000 in Taxes. In each of these states the Milwaukee's Taxes form an important part of the revenues for public benefit. In a great many taxing districts the Milwaukee alone contributes from 25 to over 50% of the total taxes, for schools, roads, etc. As the business depression was especially acute in several of these states in this period this railroad was unable to pay a dollar in dividends to any of its 22,000 stockholders. As there has been no "Guaranty" of any kind since August 31, 1920, investors have had to bear the loss and look forward to better conditions. If the government owned the Milwaukee Road the public would have had to do without the railroad's help in taxes--equal to about one-third of its total freight charges on agricultural products - as the government does not pay taxes on its own property. In addition, the public would have been assessed by the government to meet interest payments on bonds issued to take Over the railroad at its property value. Consider these facts in connection with the unsatisfac- tory results in service and taxation from government opera, tion in Italy, France, Germany, Canada, Switzerland, Sweden, Mexico, Brazil, Rus-.ia, and other lands--all troubled with inefficiency and deficits. It is clear that the public has nothing to gain but much to lose by having its railroads placed under political management.
