St Louis—Nearly two hours were
levoted to the defense of the Ku Klux
Klan and its principles by Imperial
Wizard William J. Simmons-of Atlan-
ta, organizer and chief of the order,
before an audience of about 1,000 pros-
l ective members .
His eulogy of the order culminated
in an order to disprove charges of
graft that have been made against the
beads of the klan and an explanation
of why the order had closed its doors
to negroes.
Newspapermen were admitted to the
meeting, at which several hundred
members of the klan appeared in the
white robe, under a pledge not to re-
veal the names of any acquaintances
they might discover Jn the audience.
All present signed cards pledging
themselves to keep "sacredly secret"
everything they saw and heard at the
meeting.
The Imperial Wizard declared the
home given him in Atlanta did not
cost more than $30,000, and that the
money was raised by gifts from the
members, not from the klan's treas-
ury, adding "unless as a temporary
loan."
Referring to lawless acts credited
in the south to a secret order Simmons
declared taht "when the verdict of
the American people is", Simmons,
your organization is* a lawless one," I
shall order it to be disbanded. But
Washington.—Reductions in the nor-
mal tax rates on individual incomes
of *15,000 or less and a graduated tax
of from 10 percent on the incomes of
corporations in place of the suggest-
ed flat rate of 15 percent were pro-
posed amendments to the republi-
can tax revision bill offered in the
senate by Senators Walsh, Massachu-
setts and Gerry of Rhode Island, dem-
ocrats, on the finance committee.
To make up the $105,000,00* loss
from the tax on individua. meomes,
it was proposed that a tax of 1 cent
a gallon on gasoline be imposed at
the source and that the capital stock
tax, yielling around $60,000,000 an-
nually be retained. The majority bill
provides for repeal of this tax effec-
tive in 1922.
Under the Gerry amendment indi-
vidual taxpayers whose net income Is
less than $5,000 would pay a normal
rate of 2 percent instead of 4 percent
on $4,000 as provided in the revised
bill; taxpayers whose net income is
between $5,000 and $10,000 would pay
a normal tax of 4 percent on the ex-
cess over $5,000 instead of percent
on all over $4,000 and taxpayers whose
net income is between $10,000 and
$15,000 would pay a normal tax of 6
percent on the excess over $10,000 In-
stead of 8 percent on the excess over
$4,000.
Incomes in excess of $15,000 would
pay at the rate of 8 percept on all
over that amount, but, it was ex-
plained, they would receive the bene-
fit of the lowered normal tax up to
$15,000. The sur tax rates as fixed by
the finance committee would remain
unchanged.
Under the corporation income tax
amendment offered by Senator Walsh,
the rate on the first $10,000 of corpor-
is lawless act can be laid to the doors «tion net income would be 10 per-
cent; that on the income between
of tWs orfler. If any man can prove
that I have ever authorized an act of
lawlessness, 1 shall immediately put
.my seal to an order to'disband the
organization and cut my throat.

President Lee Of Trainmen's Organ,
ization Gives Many Reasons
Against Going Out But
Is Ignored
Chicago —Leaders of the big four
brotherhoods and affiliated railroad
unions declared that they had little
doubt that the railway employees had
voted for l! general strike rather than
accept a wage reduction, but announc-
ed that the conservative counsel of
the leaders might prevail against a
walk-out.
General chairmen of the brother-
hood of railway trainmen began count-
ing the 186,000 strike ballots of their
men, but admitted before the envel-
ope was~opened that judging from the
known temper of the men, the result
will be overwhelmingly in favor of a
strike. Pressed for an estimate as to
what the majority might be. Vice
President James Murdock said:
"Our past experience has been that
98 percent of the men will always vote
to strike."
Officials of the Brotherhood of Lo-
comotive Engineers, Order of Railway
Conductors, Brotherhood of Locomo-
tive Firemen and Enginemen and
Switchmen's union of North America,
will meet to count the strike votes of
their 259,000 members. Ralhoad union
leaders here expect all the brother-
hoods and the switchmen's union to
cast substantial majorities for a
strike.
Shop Crafts To Strike
The affiliated shop crafts have al-
ready voted by a majority of approxi-
mately 325,000 to 48,000 to walkout,

t husband that I had to have an oper-

would be a sickly

My husband asked
me to try Lydia E.

if it would not help
me. For the first
four months I could do but little work,
had to lie down most of the time, was
nervous and could eat hardly anything,

me to take the Vegetable Compound,

When'the proposal for a $50,000,000
road bond issue failed to receive pop-
ular approval in 1919, it was thought
by many that all hope of state par-
ticipation in roud constructions on
anything like an extensive scale was
gone. But the rapid growth of the
motor industry and a strict enforce-
ment of the automobile license tax in
Oklahoma has made it possible to col-
lect between January 1, 1919, and
September 1, 1921, a total of $5,905,-
922, practically every dollar of which
has gone into road construction.

POPE PLEADS FOR RUSSIA
Note to Assembly Says All Must Aid
In Feeding Slavs
Geneva,—Pope Benedict has ad-
dressed to President Van Karnebeek
of the assembly of the league of na-
tions, an appeal for the famine suffer-
ers of Russia.
"News we have received concern-
ins Russia, has become graver daily,"
said the pontiff's appeal. "The misery
Is so great that only the united ef-
forts of the peoples and their govern-
ments can assuage it. We therefore
address through your excellency, the
represetatives of all the states united
j under your presidency, and appeal in
I strongest terms to their feelings of
humanity and brotherhood in order
that they may take prompt and ef-
ficacious measures to aid the unhap-

Harve by the French battle crusiers
Strasbourg and Metz, ten torpedo
boats and ten destroyers. The gener-

ballot prepared by the other unions.
On September 12, President W. G. I^ee,
who has been ill at his home in Cleve-
land addressed a circular letter to the
men, who were in the midst of the
balloting, in which he pointed out five
reasons why he thought a striae wouid
be unwise at this time and why the
men might expect to accept some
wage reductions.
The executive of a labor organiza-
tion that fears to tell the truth or
point out dangerous places ahead to
the membership of his organization
is not worthy of the title of leader,"
Mr. Lee said.
Wages War Result
He then asked the men to consider
the fact that wages and working con-
ditions of all classes established since
1918 were "the result of a world-war
such, as never before known; that 5.-
000,000 men are now unemployed, that
nearly all classes of labor have been
forced by mediation, arbitration,
strikes or lockouts to accept reduced
rates of pay during the past year; that
the increased wages granted railroad
men last year were based on increased
cost of living; and that government
reports Indicate a 16 percent cut in
living costs since July 1, 1920. Mr.
Lee's letter, however, apparently has
failed to influence the voting, the gen-
eral chairmen reported.

comapny at Oppau, on the Rhine,
wrecked the town and spread death
itnd destruction on every hand. The
lumber killed is variously estimated at
from 1,000 to 1,500 and the injured
close to 2,000. One report says that
there were 3,000 men on the spot at
the moment of the explosion and it
is believed that about half of these
were killed.
The town of Oppau is a scene of
utter desolation, more than a third of
the houses having been completely
destroyed, while the roots of the
others were swept off as if by a whirl-
wind.
A regiment of colonial infantry and
the first Madagascar regiment from
Ludwigshafen immediately proceeded
to Oppau to preserve order and aid
in the work of rescue.
Describing the disaster, a captian
of the first French colonial infantry,
who was an eye witness, said:
"I was riding close to the factory
when suddenly I heard a dull rumb-
ling. The earth seemed to quiver and
an immense column of flame and
smoke shot up a few hundred yards
away from me, followed immediately
by an explosion end a rush of air
which hurled me and my horse to the
earth, when I picked myself up an
immense cloud of dust and smoke
hid that part of the factory near the
gasometers. All sorts of objects,
beams, blocks stones and bricks rain-
ed down upon the road."
Hearing cries behind me 1 turned
and realized that the village of Oppau
was destroyed as by an earthquake.
Shortly after, the main buildings of
the plant burst into flames, and the
air was filled with the fumes of am-
monia.
