You have a positive ri;ht to insist upon receiving
the full earning pvner of every dollar you invest.
Safety is ALL important no other consideration
can affect the influence of this vital factor. But the
income yield is the real reason for making the in
vestment. The.ruximum earning power, consistent with safety, of invested
money is :.'. !t:f !y "f.xt-d ly laws, of finance which govern every
commcrciiii relation. The- individual who attempts to secure man'
must do so ar the expense of saft-Jy itself, while the investor who is

dred Thousand Navvies
BERLIN, Nov.10. Dr. Richard
Strauss has stirred up a hornet's nest
in Liberal and Radical Germany with
an open letter regarding the agitation
Tor the perpetuating of the Wagner
family's monopoly of '"Parsifal." 'hie
letter contains the following attack
upon the reichestag and on universal!
"Unfortunately, the decision with
regard to 'Parsifal' does not rest with!
people who Irave the refinement and.
development of our culture at heart,
but with jurists and politicians de
void of understanding the; unlimited
rights of intellectual property owners.
"I happened to attend the proceed
ings of the reichestag In 'Which the
representatives of the German peo-
pie,, with very, few exepeitons,. were
(debating with pathetic Ignorance the
weighty question of copyright law. I
? heard a ; cfertain Eugen Riciiter (the
j late famous Radical parliamentarian
and iffnance expert) invoke the most
j shameless dies to 'tread under foot the
'rights of 200 miserable German com-
i posers, including Wagner's heirs, in
favor of 200,000 German publicans,
