I THE BINGHAM NEWS Professional Men on Income Taxation WASHINGTON. more tlaan men In the United States have Joined forces to indorse and the support Mellon tax reduction plan from a nonpartisan point of view. Not the least significant aspect of the meeting was the fact that It resulted in the cre-ation of a permanent organization which will act as a national clearing house of opinion and action on mat-ters affecting the Interests of profes-sional people as a whole, a class that has hitherto not been organized in any way. The new society Is called the Na-tional Organization for Professional I'rofessional societies represented at the meeting Included the American Dramatists, the Actors' Equity, American Chemical society, American Institute of Chemical En-gineers, American Medical association, American Society of Authors, Com-posers and Publishers, Artists' guild and the Authors' League of America. It Is also stated that representatives of other organizations were present but could not take formal part In the movement as yet because the consti-tutions of their organizations required action at annual meetings or had slmi-lu- r restrictions on Immediate action. Among organizations not listed but snid to have expressed sympathy with the general purposes of the meeting were the American Bar association, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, American Society of Min-ing and Metallurgical Engineers, and the American Society of Civil Engi-neers. The National Organization for Pro-fessional will be a per-manent organization, and Its head-quarters for the present will he the Authors' League of America, at 2 East Twenty-thir- d street. New York. The meeting adopted the following resolutions: "Itesolved, That the National Or-ganization for Professional Coopera-tion approve and Indorse In principle the bill advocated by the secretary of the treasury for the revision of income taxes, and respectfully urge upon the congress of the United States Its Im-- , mediate passage. "Itesolved, That as professional workers, feeling that we have already been discriminated against during the nine years of the existence of the fed-eral Income tax, we emphatically pro-test against the proposal to limit the differentiation between earned and un-earned Income, because any limitation to the principle that the earned in-come of the individual should be treat-ed on a different basis from unearned Income is a discrimination against the best human effort of the Individual, and as such Is undemocratic and un-just." Water Supply in the Oil Shale Industry REPORT on the "uses of Awater In the Industry," by J. J. Jakosky, has been made by the Department of the Interior through the bureau of mines. "Any engineer making a trip through the region of the Rocky moun-- : fain country will be struck by the fact (hat the water supply problem will have to be solved before an Industry of any considerable size can be started there," the report says. "The situation does not appear so seri-ous to those who do not travel far from the main streams or arteries of travel, although even In these places It may cause thought. Only when one gets away from the railroads and often that means visiting the richer shnle deposits does the magnitude of the water supply problem become fully evident. There are few lurge water courses, and these are generally far opart. Many of the smaller tributaries are periodic; they may be entirely dry part of the year, but ronring torrents during the rainy months. "Those deposits situated on the main water courses may seem to be adequately supplied, or so situated that they may be adequately supplied, wltli water for development or produc-tion work. It must be borne In mind, however, that much of the water of these streams Is already appropriated for agricultural or other uses, per-haps lower down on the stream, und that the amount of such appropriation may increase, as agricultural demands ordinarily take legal precedence over industrial requirements. "At the present stage of the shale Industry in this country it Is almost impossible to stute definitely the amount of water required for large-scal- e operations. The amount required known as to the possibilities of ob-taining adequate water supplies by well drilling, but in many places the prospects do not look very favorable, for mining and crushing the shale will probably be similar In tlie coal-mlnln- g Industry where similar conditions exist. The per capita domestic require-ments for water will vary with the location of the plant and with local conditions. The most important use for wnter Is In retorting and refining, but the amount that will be required for these purposes Is more in doubt than that for power or domestic use. "No standard retorting or refining practice for oil shale and shale oil has yet been established In the United States. Many retorting processes have been proposed, and perhaps twenty-fiv- e or thirty experimental or demon-stration plants have been erected In different parts of the country. Prac-tically without exception, however, these plants are too small to be con-sidered as commercial, or to give operating data that would be of much value In estimating water require-ments." Japanese Sensitive on Race Question of the Immigration SECTION'S measure, pending In, the operate to exclude Japanese from the country, and such exclusion would be "Inconsistent" with treaty obligations with Japan, Secretary Hughes contends in a letter to Chairman ' Johnson of the house Immigration committee, mude public at rtie State department. "The Japanese government hns brought the matter to the at-tention of the Department of State, and there Is the deepest Interest In the attitude of congress with respect to this subject," the letter added. "I am unable to perceive that the exclu-sion provision Is necessary and I must strongly urge upon you the advisabil-ity, In the Interests of our Interna-tional relations, of eliminating It." If a provision making certificates necessary for Immigrants coming to the United States were made applica-ble to Japan, Secretary Hughes said. It would be possible to obtain active of the Japanese govern-ment and an arrangement could be perfected "Involving a double control over the Japanese quota of less tlian 2"i0 a year," which could enter the country. SecrVtury Hughes called ottentlon to the existing understanding between the two governments tinder which Japan undertakes to prevent immigra-tion of laborers to the United States. In connection with his opposition to fhe JnpancRe exclusion features of the bill. Secretary Hughes said: "The Japanese are a sensitive peo-pi- e and unquestionably would regard such a legislative enactment as fixing a stigma upon them. I regret to be compelled to say rtiat I believe such legislative action would lorgeiy undo the work of the Washington Confer-ence on Limitation of Armament, which so greatly Improved our rela-tions with Japan. 'The manifestation of American In-terest and generosity In providing re-lief to the sufferers In the recent earthquake disaster In Japan would not avail to diminish the resentment which would follow the enactment of such a measure, as this enactment would be regarded as an Insult not to be palliated by any act of charity. "The question is thus presented whether It Is worth while thus to af-front a friendly nation with whom we have established most cordial rela-tions and what gain there would be from such action." I Secretaries Would Save the Public Land of tub iXTKition Sf.cisi:tai:v Secretary of have recom-mended to congress that the right of the Northern Pacific Hallway ootnnr.nv to acquire approximately n.OOO.nofl acres of government hind In Idaho.

The two cabinet members have asked that a Joint resolution lie con-sidered withholding the Issuance of any further hind patents to the North-e- Pacific Hallway company until after congress shall have made a full and complete Inquiry Into that com-pany's land grants for the purpose of considering legislation to meet the re-spective rights of the rullwny com-pany and the United Stales govern-ment.
