RAILWAYS OR GAMBLES
In tackling transportation the first
thing, President Harding shows a true
understanding of some of our un
derlying difficulties. Of course,
there is something still more under
lying, but it does not often come to
the surface in political discussion.
The railroad situation is bad, and the
reason for its being bad is the im
possibility of a road being a good rail
road proposition and a good specu
lative proposition at the same time.
The time arrives when you have got
to become either a railroad or a gam
ble, and when most of our railroads
reached this point their banker own
ers got the better of their railroad
operators, and the railroads became
mere adjuncts to a speculators' game,
^h President notes the extent to
which Government has been forced
into railroad regulation on account of
the importance of railroads to the
cotmtry and on account of tfreir fail
ure to render service. And in noting
'this he does well, for it will enable
the public mind to see the connection
^between the national interest and
''the railway situation. But it is also
.worth while noting that Government
attention has been focused exclu
ssively on the operative side to the
'Serious and important neglect of the
'financial side. Railroading is bad, not
because railroaders do not know their

business, but because they cannot
serve the railroad and the specula
tive demands at the same time. That
side of the question would bear in
vestigation./* Mr. Harding will
find that once the right economic
conditions are obtained, there will
be no need of commissions with
power to force men to accept them:
right economic conditions make their
own way and people accept them as
naturally as they breathe.—Henry
NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS
The end of Yd'Z'l is at hand. This
is the time for retrospection of an im
portant part of life—a span between
two of the few annual milestones
which go to malce up a man's life. A
wise person will devote a little time
to taking stock of material interests,
of course, but also to a searching in
trospection of life itself to determine
whether one is steering definitely to
some goal of better purpose, or whe
ther one is drifting aimlessly onward
towards the inevitable end of earthly
existence that looms up to everyone
Turning over a new leaf at New
Years, like starting a diary, is a re
solve that often falls by the wayside,
but it is better to make an honest at
tempt and fail, than not to make any
attempt at all.
THE WILLMAR HOSPITAL
COR. Becker Ave. and 4th St. W. Tel. no. 122
The advise of Mr. Micawber, the
failure of himself to follow which he
admitted made him the wretched vic
tim of circumstances that he was,
still holds good—Live within your
income.^ Those four words tell the
whole secret of how to avoid trouble
in a material way.
In your human relations every
honest attempt which you make to
live up to the, golden rule—Do unto
others at you would have others do
unto you—will make you a better
man or woman.
