They have found that the stamp tax
is a political in it. il. t so they tire K-

lr.it to substitute ether taxes such as
an increased Income lax and a tax
on tniinilions. They find il necossnry
lo make up deficits by u rnntiniiarnv
af special taxation and the chanite tn
form of taxation Is only a matter of
political expediency. The first ex-
planation offered for u continuation of
war taxes is the decreased Imports

kept up now for two years but is u
deliberate perversion of Ike truth and

the ordinary citien will not invest!

There are some rooiI thins every-

first proper respect shown the na-
tional anthem in Tulsa to our knowl-
edge was ttlven Monday niKht nt the

the Inspiritm' strains of the "Star

the house arose and every hat came
off. Shortly after the band played

that he has been seriously annoyed

Plans Launched for Unifi-

SAUAOOTA PPU1NOS N. Y May 17.
The unification of American Method-
ism was advanced another step to-
ward consummation Tuesday when
by a voto that was virtually unani-
mous the 8S0 delegates to the general
conference of the Methodist-Episcopal
church anopted the report of the spe-
cial committee on unification paving
the way to an amalgamation with the
Methodist-Kpiscopal church south
and the Methodist Protestant church.
The adoption of the report which
was the most Important and far-
reaching legislation that hns been en-
acted by a Methodist general con-
ference in many years was attended
by a tremendous demonstration of
enthusiasm. The greut auditorium
rang with cheers and applause as the
uged bishop. Kurl Cranston who pre-
sided while tho action was taken and
liishop K. R. Hendrlx. senior member
of the board of bishops for the south-
ern church clasped hands upon the
platform and wept with emotion.
A' Great Moment.
"This is the supreme moment of
my life" cried liishop Cranston.
"A marvelous result has been
achieved" liishop Hendrix said. "I
pray that the whole Methodist body
throughout the world may more and
more sec eye to eye and Bishop Crans-
ton and mysehT may live to stand
Jointly over the united general con-
ference of United Methodism in
A terrific outburst of applause
Htiickly gave way to song as the del-
egates loined In the hymn "Praise
tiod From Whom All Illesslngs Flow"
and then took up the strains of "West
He the Tie That Binds."
On the platform with Bishop
Cranston and Bishop Hendrix was
one clergyman who attended the his-
toric general conference of 1844 at
New York the lust in which the
southern church was represented be-
fore Methodism was split over the
question of slavery. Me Is Uev.
Thompson li. Ijindon of Bordentown

Today"s action does not unite the
two branches of the Methodist de-
nominations but continues the nego-
tiations for a reunion.
"The points of agreement are
many; the points of disagreement are
few" Bishop Hendrix said.
It Is generally believed that the
obstacles In the way of unification
have been overcome and that two
years hence the general conference
of the Methodist church south will
accept the plan for reunion which
the northern church hopes to bring
to final fulfillment at its general
conference In 1920. The conference
today took Ithe first ballot for new
