HERE'S LOTS OF
Jobs Grow Scarcer and Food
Prices Soar, While Wall
Street Money-Huns Yell
Bradstreets Commercial Review
commenting on commodity prices,
notes that "the signs thus far indi
cate nothing but marked strength"
and "the situation as to foodstuffs
is plainly stronger than ever." These
observations bear out. the prediction
which experts have been making for
some time past that there would be
no material decrease in the. cost of
living followinlg the end of thel war.
Jobs are daily growing scarcer but
the records show that the cost of
living as measured by Bradstreet's
was 1 4 per cent higher in Decem
ber, 1!918, than it was in December,
191 7 and almost doulile what it wae:
in August, 1914.
By way of contrast, the same issuet
of 13lradst ret's publishes some notes
regarding the earnings of the United
Fruit conmpany for the year ending
Sept. 30. 1918. At that tinme the
balance available for dividends was
$19.,! 911,496 or an equivalent of 40
per cent on the capital stock. This
is a comlfortable showing when com
pared, with the 27 per cent earned on
the capital stock in 1917.
At the same time the Pennsylvania I
railroad announces that it is to re
ceive $53,603,427.50 per year under
its contract with the tIc'eral govern
ment. "This will be enough," an
nounces President Rae of the Penn
sylvania "to pay all fixed charges

be kept here indefinitely, I think we
should have comfdrtable quarters.
Many friends, and the Red Cross,
have been kind enough to send us
knitted sweaters, but to wear them
is prohibited. When a man is caught
wearing one, lie is very kindly re
lieved of it by the officers and the
man gets 15 da.ys restriction, or five
days in the "brig." As for the con
fiscated sweaters, they're never seen
againl. Why are so many mothers,
wives and sweethearts putting in
their time knitting these things
when we're not allowed to use them?
A "Square DIeal"?
Another instance of the govern
ntent's so-called "square deal"
A friend of mine obtained an hon
orable discharge; his father was dead
of influenza, mother dying, six chil
dren to be cared for. His uniform
was taken away. The government re
fused to give him transportation
home, and if the boys had not all
chipped in : he would have been
turned out ipenniless, 2.000 miles
from his home and dying mother.
Perhaps that is a square deal, but
I can't see it that way.
According to that policy, a man
enlists for his country's sake as a
gentleman. He leaves with a scrap
of paper, an honorable discharge, a
Roasts Y. M. ('. A.
While i'm at it I'd like to say a
few things about that wonderful or
ganization, the Y. M. C. A. Since the
United States went into the war we
have all heard how wonderfully the
Y. dM. C. A. treats the soldiers and
sailors. In my estimation, the Y. M.
C. A. secretaries are a bunch of
grafting trench dodgers. I believe I
have good ground for my opinion.
Just an instance:
In this camp we have no canteen.
The Y. M. C. A. charged too much
for a box of candy all summer. .Ap
pies about the size of a small egg
were sold to us for 5 cents each.
Any number of small edibles were
sold to us for prices allowing a
margin of profit of from 1 to 6 cents
Our commandant looked into the
matter, and now the Y. M. C. A. has
been prohilbited from selling any
thing to sailors in the Bremerton
We admit we did get a few sheets
of stationery-whenever there hap
pened to be any, which was, and is,
seldom. Have you ever slept in a
Y. M. C. A. dormitory? If you
haven't, I'd advise you not to take a
chance. On the seventh floor of the
Seattle Y. M. C. A. the ceiling is a
complete ruin, and the sleeping
quarters are absolutely disreputable.
I think I have given you an idea
of how the men in this camp feel
about the government' "square
treatment" and the Y. M. C. A.
I hope the near future will see
some improvement in camp condi
tions, but it seems a vain hope, as
the last nine months have merely
seen things grow worse.

Says • Minister Wanted to

Sheriff John K. O'loulrke was
much perturbed yesterday with ref
erence to statements made by Rev.
G. M. Carter. criticisingy the sheriff's
office. In an intervie-w wvitli a Bul
letin represenlltati e Ithe sheriff says:
"The Rev. G .. . t'arla r makes the
statement to his congregation that
on Dec. 6 he called up the sheriff'a
office at 1:3o a. ii. and reported two
houses on the flat openl ald violating
the closing law. At this hour of the
morning the sheriff's ol'fice was
closed and the switch turn(d onto tile
jailer's office. where all rvorlts are
tmade at that prticularl hour.
"The jailer notities sonm of the
olher deluties ind t|hey rerponod
when calls are received, he also
makes note of such i etls. Now, I
don't know anylhing abiotIt this p-il
ticular call and we have noi record of
it. Mr. Carter wais a special offit.l
at the time antld haid ;authority to
make arrests and why didn't he alr
rest those parties oir otrie to the of
lice next day and tell us ,lbout it; or'
why did he let it igo until this hltes
"It looks to nime as thoutgh M. ('it
ter has some moli\'v- in viiew, uthol
than the one of which he speakl . At
the time le sulrl'cndlt'-d his cotie u lis
ision as special officer he wanted to

that there were several perIt'sonis ditp

of the Kerensky government are
among the prominent emissaries to
the conference. But thus far no Rus

There are three main proposals be
fore the conference regarding the
Russian policy. The first advocates
vigorous intervention and the over
throw of the bolsheviki.
Th', second advocates by every
other means than the dispatch of

Washington, Jant. 20.---Why not
put the disabled toltier to work in
helping reforest the country? This is
thle suggestion madet by the American
Forestry association. What better
work for the man seeking health than
the care of trees that would take
hinl into the open air? asks Charles
Lathrop Pack, president. of the asso
ciation who points to the great drain
lmalde upl)on forests for war work. He
calls attention to these figures:
Yellow pine lumber sufficient to
lay a bridge floor 25 feet wide and
one inch thick from the United States
to France with 4.ti000,ti0 feet to

in a.report on conditions in Australia,
that the same disastrous condition is
inevitable there, unless the lesson
taught by American recklessness in
stripping timber acreage, be learned.
Writing in the American Forestry
magazine on this subject, W. M.
Hussie of the Red Cross institute for
crippled and disabled men, says:
"Arboricultture, viticulture and
horticulture have engaged the minds
of the French re-educationalists with
such success that thousands of dis
abled soldiers have forund their way
Iack to usefulness in those lines of
endeavor. despite even the loss of an
artm. It is not that they are tolerated,
that charity permits them to engage
in sulch purlsuits, biut that they have
proved lheir ability to hold their own,
day after day, and to do efficient
work. and receive full wages for the
work done. Science. inspired by the
apllpetaling netessity of the case. and
moved by )lpatriodtism and love ofi

When the book was blank it was
placed by this Red Cross man on the
counter of a Red Cross outpost, near
the fighting line. Soldidrs and` offi

chocolates, comfort bags and other
commodities, adopted it as a register.
When a customer called for anything
he would affix his signature in the
little book and write a line or so of
comment. Now it contains the signa
tures of men from almost every state
and from all ranks of the army, gen

The book boasts of the names of
