It is not too early for the coln
missioners of Ravalll and Missoula
counties to take up the perfecting the
park-to-park highway and to decide
what amount of work they will do
this year upon this propl,(sdt ltoute
across the state. Each season, we, be
lieve, should find some of this work
completed in permanent and sclentific
manner. The plan developed in this
way will construct the ideal road
which is desired. In Itavalli and Mis
soula counties this scenic overland
way can be made the central artery of
the commercial roads; it will not be
a route for pleasure-seekers only; it
will ,be a practical road in a practical
direction for the farlner who wants
the best highway he can get for mar
keting his products. in the case of
Ravalli and -Missoula, the park-to
park proposition becomes an added
incentive to good-roads endeavor, as
it fits In with the practical as well as
the joy-ride idea. We hope the coIm

Unless Governor Stewart's influence is strong enough to
turn the tide and unless the governor uses that influence
to best advantage within the next twenty-four hours, the
surrender of the house majority--pledged to support the
governor's platform recommendations-will be complete.
Whether or not the governor intends to interfere, we do
not know. But from the side lines it is easy to see what
will happen if he does not.
As the turfmen have it, there was a complete reversal of
form in the house yesterday. After having the situation
well in hand, the democratic majority yielded yesterday
almost without a struggle and last night found the senate
bi-partisan combine in control of the field, with the reform
measures secluded beyond any possible invasion's reach.
If we were not familiar, here in Montana, with the power
and the methods of the bi-partisan combine which is the
visible agent of the invisible government, this situation
would be surprising.. But we have seen this power and
these methods so often in evidence that we are not sur
prised any more, whatever happens. So there is a large
membership in the I-told-you-so class this morning.
The result of yesterday's proceedings in the house made
it certain that the record of the Thirteenth assembly will
be a do-nothing record, which is exactly what the combine
expected it to be and which is precisely what the whole cam
paign of the combine has led up to, for sixty days.
We say this is certain. There is one thing which can
save the day for the democratic pledged majority. That is
the influence of the governor. Should Governor Stewart
decide to make an effort to induce the lawmakers to carry
out their solemn pledges, there might yet be some change
in the situation. Yesterday Representative Day made an
earnest plea to his party associates to stand by the gov
ernor and their platform. This plea went unheeded. It
is up to the governor now and perhaps even his personal
endeavor will not save the situation.
From the start, the position of Governor Stewart has
been consistent. His message was a recommendation that
the democratic majority carry out the pledges which his
party had made, in common with the other two parties, for
state reform legislation which is in no way partisan or po
itiical. His influence, as far as we know, has been steadily
exerted toward the carrying out of his recommendations.
He showed the way to party triumph by the establishment
of a record for performance.
Yesterday, Governor Stewart witnessed the abject sur
render of the men upon whom he had relied to carry out
this program. Perhaps he may yet save the day, but it
looks as if the people's league would have a busy season
after the assembly adjourns.

By Frederic J. Haskin.
When a handful of poverty stricken
weaver:, in lEngl.tJ, ctrugglia.; under
't,: burdens of the high cost It lv';ng,
organized the Roas'hdale ('o-operative
soclety, they little reckoned that out
of their action in the face of dire
necessity would grow a novenement
broad in it. aspects and far-reaching
in its results-a movement destined to
benefit millions of their fellow men,
helping them to get tihe necessaries of
life at prices they could pay. Where
there existed in. .England, after their
organization, a small society which
could buy a few hundred pounds'
worth of goods, there exists today in
the United Kingdom co-,perative so
eltehes having ai total rllllnbershipti of
3.000.,00 heails of families. The activ
ities of the societies reach and effect
every phase of production and clon

activities, their total produc.tive and

The usual English cl'o-operative so
ciety is opel to all cornllrs, with the
single reservationl tiat those InILy Lie
ex'cludedl whose ime ership would
prove a detrimenit to the orgarnization.
The shares in these societe'l s are tl. t
ally fiv\'e dollars each, anid in somllle of
them such shares mIlay be acquitrell
simply ,by dealing with the society as
ia noll-nlielllter, and lettintg the profits
accumlnulate until Ithey equal thie
Irice of a share. The usual rule is for
them to be bought on weekly or
quarterly payments. A dividend of 5
per cent annually is usually allowed to I
the holders of shares, and any profits
over and above this are distributed to
the share holders, and the custoniers.
Some distribute a part of the profits
to the employees. Some of the agri
cuRtural societies distribute a share of
the profits to those who supply the
raw material.
In the usual co-operative society in
England each member is entitled to
one vote, whether he be the owner of
one share or a dozen. Its affairs are
generally administered by quarterly
meetings, and a special committee,
elected by the shareholders, manages
the ,business in the meantime. There
are few salaried positions. No diffi
culty is encountered in securing
enough capital; indeed, there has to be
strong insistence that the companies
are run for the benefit of the con
sumers rather than to afford returns
to investors. The law provides that
the societies may receive deposits up
to $100 from any one person, and they,
,therefore, act as sorts of savings
banks for their members.
An interesting index of the costs
antd profits of retailing is to be had
from the reports of the retail soc
tiles. Upon a business of 70,000,000
pounds, the gross profis were 16,000,
000 pounds in a recent year. From
this it will be seen that the wholesale
value of the year's trade was approx
irnately 54,000,000 pounds, and that
even under the best form of co-opera,
tion the margin between wholesale
and retail prices was approxinately
30 per cent.
Periodically each society balancet
its books and finds what profit it has
made. A meeting of the members is
then held and it is asked how the
surplus, after the interest on the
shares has been paid, shall be dis
tributed. Usually there are certain
reservations for the reserve fund, the
charity fund, and the educational
fund, and then the remainder is dis
tributed among the punchasers, so
much for each $5 worth of goods pur
chased, shareholders getting twice as
much as non-memibers, of whom there
are few. Each purchase carries with
it a metal ,tag which is evidence of
the amount purchased, and the divi
dends are based upon the value of the
metal tags a man holds. The average
rebate that this brings is about 13
cents on the dollar. Many of the so
cieties have come to advocate selling
as nearly at cost as possible, so that
the poorer mem'bers will not be so
long deprived of the use of the money
their rebate tags represent.
In some sections where competition
is not heavy, retail prices have been
kept up, the theory being that the
members will save their dividends,
and thus, at the end of the year will
have more money than they would
have had they bought right along at
lower prices. The div'idends usually
are allowed to accumulate.
While the general principle of the
big co-operative societies in England
has 'been that trading shall be on a
strictly cash basis, some of the soci
eties have 'begun to extend limited
credit to their members. This ten
dency has caused alarm among the
leaders of the co-operative movement,
'so that each natornal co-operative
congress in recent years has debated
the question of how the credit-extend
ing societies can. 1be induced ,to come
back upon the surer ground of cash
While the admin4stratlive work of
I the co-operative societies in England
is entrusted to elected officials, the
'technical and commercial end of the
business is in the hands of permanent
employees usually paid salaries and
wages after the manner of private
concerns. These employees are treat
ed as co-operators like to be treated
themselves. They get a half holiday
each week, and work on an average.
about 54 hours a week.
The two big whqlesale societies in
the United Kingdoml are the English
and Scottish Wholesale societies. The
wholesale societies are the direct out
growth of the opposition of private
traders, who sought to put down co
operation by bringing pressure upon
the wholesalers to force them to re
fuse to sell to co-operative retail
stores. Attenmpts had been made re
peatedly to establish such wholesale
societies, but they failed until they
were projected by federations of re
tail societies so strong that the most
powerful opposition could not prevail
against them. These two societies co
operate with one another. Under a
working agreement they jointly oper
ate and own tea estates in Ceylon,
manuLfacture coc;t1 at Luton, and
bhlnd and pack teas l.a London. The
Elnglish society owns four steamships
which have been completely paid for.
The system of co-operative insur
ance in England is no less interesting
than the system of Imanufacturing
and distributing the commodities used
by co-operators. The ('o-operative
Insurance society does a many-sided
business. If you have property to be
insured against loss it will take the
risk: if a society wants its employees
bonded it will guarantee their fidelity;
and if a society wants to insure the
lives of its melrnbers, the Co-operative
Insurance society is there ready to
write out the policies.
It has a novel scheme of collective
insurance, designed to afford the ben
efits of industrial life insurance and
yet to save the large costs of admin
istration and house-to-house collec
tlon. Ilteh co-operative society pays
the pIremium for all its members, and
this premlium is two cents on every
$4.86 worth of goods purchased by
the member. Without making any in
quiry a-s to the age or state of health
of the memrbe.rs of a co-operative so
ciety, a blanket policy for them all
is provided, and if any one of them
dies his beneficiaries are paid an
amount hearing a fixed ratio to the
amount of his purchases during the
year closing on the day of death.
These policies range from $50 to $500 I
each. A man who purchases a hun
dred dollars' worth cf goods a year
will leave his benteficiaries $500 if he
dies. There are many other kinds of
co-operative Insurance its Great Brit
