FROM-OUR NEIGHBORS Garfield Wins :From Palouse. The second game or football of the our whole banking system and espe- ~;eason was played by t~te Garfield cially, the smaller country banks, i high school boys against the Palouse The postal savings bank should n(itI high school team on the football field compete in this manner, as there is no i at Dix park last Saturday.

If private banks have to pay more interest on savings accounts they will have to charge more on the money they loan. The postal savings bank in no way takes the place of the private bank from the standopint ot r)usiness ac- commodation, but by raising its inter- eat rates on savings it can force the private bank to meet t~ese rates at the expense of the public. PATIENT MUST COOPERATE. ing off to Garfield During the first! half of the game the Gar~icl~ boys were seemingly outplayed by the Pa-! lousers. Palouse was able re inake two touchdowns and kick goal both times, making the score stand 14 to 0 in their favor at the end ,)f the. first ~, half. The Garfield boys were able to get together during toe last half, however, and at the end of the tlfird quarter two touchdowns had been ~ made. These were made by Dwire and Stone. Garfield failed to kick 'goals, so the score stood 14 to 12 iu favor of Palouse. During the last five Did you ever try to lift yourself by minutes of the last quarter Virgil your boot straps?

Commenting on the situation, the Wall Street Journal says: "There is only a relatively slow cure for unem- ployment.

Senator F. J. Wihner of Rosalia attended the session of the state tax iuvestigating committee, which wasl held in Spokane last Tuesday and nrged that no tax /)e levied on bank deposits. The levying of such a tax would cause deposits to dwindle away. he said.
