WASHINGTON, D. C. Senator
Curtis of Kansas has been picked by
the Republican machine to introduce
legislation changing the form of or
ganization of the federal reserve
The principal thing in the new plan
is to have one central bank and a
number of branches instead of the
present 12 federal reserve banks.
At first thought this might seem
like a change without a difference,
but its purpose is to strengthen the
power of the J. P. Morgan interests
and their close allies. Each of the
12 regional banks is at the present
time organized and manned by the
national banks in the respective dis
tricts. Each, therefore, has some
degree of independence which" would
not be possible if the regional bank
were merely a branch of the central
Each federal reserve bank would
have to be more slavish in its obedi

The papers are quoting some bond
sellers as saying: "It is a plain
business proposition in which the
risk is too great" But they don't
explain further because this bare
statement gives the impression that
there is something the matter with
The plain fact is that what the
bond brokers mean by risk is that
they may not be able to sell the
bonds because of what Northwest
bankers and politicians and kept
press have been saying about North
Dakota. There is no question about
the value of the bonds there is no
risk in them so long as North Da
kota remains on the map.
There is considerable poetic justice
in the situation, however, because the
selling of these bonds would aid the
hard-pressed bankers of North Dakota
more than any other group.
WOULD INCREASE BOND
Senator Warren has introduced a
bill increasing the interest rate on
Liberty bonds already issued to a fig

The advance of sterling exchange
from $3.51% on December 30 to
$3.73% on January 11 seems to puz

bination of the following factors
would account for most of this rise
if not all:
1. The semi-public Bank of Eng
land has considerable control over
the foreign exchange rate of English
2. The British government through
its agent here has undoubtedly bought
more grain and cotton than it needs.
3. A rise in foreign exchange here
causes a rise in the prices of grain,
cotton and other products we have
Hence the rise in English exchange
helps the English agent to unload
his purchases which he doesn't need
at higher prices. Two months fall

agents to buy at low prices.'
By its control of exchange rates and

buying the British government can

REVIVING THE KU-KLUX
There is a widespread effort to re
vive the old methods of the so-called
Ku-Elux-Klan used to terrorize ne
groes in the South following the war.
But this time its new and secret
sponsors appear to want to give it
a wider field. The crime wave in Now
York and other cities is used as an
excuse for its need. A decoy letter
to the Imperial Kleagle, P. O. Box
1204, Atlanta, Ga., brot a rdply point
ing out the need for the secret order
today "when the 14,000,000 people of
the colored race are organizing and
when Bolshevist forces are
encroaching daily upon the basic prin
ciples of Americanism."
The guiding spirits thus plan to
broaden it to include all those whom,
they may style Bolshevists.
All this sort of thing is outlawed
by our Constitution and definite acts
of congress, and the fact that the
public officials are not knocking it on
the head at once is the ugliest look
ing thing about the situation.

AMOUNT OF UNEMPLOYMENT
Recent oiffcial reports put the num
ber of the unemployed in the United
States at close to 2,300,000 persons.
This figure includes neither count nor
estimate of rural wage-workers now
unable to get work.

Senator Frelinghuysen of New Jer
sey, however, has come to the lescuc
with a new substitute that will do the
work if it passes.
The railioad chiefs want to bo able
to let supply building and repair con
tracts to themselves as subsidiary
companies and thus make fat profits
on this work. These profits, in turn,
would increase the demands which
the roads could make for higher rates
because congress, in the Cummins
Esch bill, gave them a guarantee of
6 per cent on railroad stock
Another strong motive for wishing
these bogus railroad supply companies
recognized is that when work is
transferred to these companies the
workmen involved would lose such
special protection as is offered under
the present laws.

by Senator King of Utah, providing

During the war a great deal was
said about German efforts to secure
control of our business, but the most

of 1 per cent of our more than 250
billions of national wealth.
It vas in his limelight work as
alien property custodian that Attorney
General Palmer first attracted news
paper attention. He was then ap
pointed attorney general before he
had, as a lawyer, attained the right
to practice before the supreme court.
His autocratic behavior both as
alien property custodian and as at
torney general may have been largely
due to ignorance of the laws he was
supposed to enforce.
In the December 18 issue of the
London Daily Herald, which has just
reached here, George Lansbury, its
editor and one of the leaders of the
British Labor party, advises the
starving unemployed to go to the poor
house for food.
"At Christmas," says Lansbury,
"only the patient, long-suffering poor
will be stupid enough to go without.
There is no real self-respect in seeing
one's loved ones starve or even starv
"I hope and trust, therefore, that
every unemployed man and woman
unable to get a Christmas dinner at
home and refused outdoor relief, will
just shut up their rooms for two or
three days and go into the work-house
and partake of the hospitality of the
hotel provided by the nation."
Unemployment in England is prob
ably not as great as right here in the
United States, but the British work
ers are not taking it so patiently as
ours do. They seem to believe that If
big business can't run the country
so that all can have work and food,
big business should give way to na
tionalization. ASKS LAW TO CURB LOBBYIST
