I warn our opponents that the
fight has only just begun. What
ever may betide in the future, of
one thing the disciples of an easy
opportunism may rest assured-I
will never abandon the men and
women who drew around me to
battle for these principles. They
and I stand with our faces toward
the morning; we will never be sun
dered from one another; and we
will never yield the ground we
have taken or flinch from the fight
to which we are pledged.

The roots of our preparedness run back to 1907. In 1897
= began the reorganization of the bankrupt railroad proper
ties soon followed by the industrials. This condition of ac
cumulations following the '93 crisis was of such magnitude
that these reorganizations swept with accelerating velocity
up to and including 1905.
Clouds here and there appeared to be.soon dissolved. The
momentum however had become so great that the indif
ferents in both classes had been swept in, and then came the
; abrupt recoil of 1907.
The heretofore accepted theory that wealth under the
benignant conditions of peaceful competition increased
g twice as fast as population had been shunted into the limbos
of hasbeens, and the resources of the country was multi
plying by new ratios.
It was a period of financial drunkenness. Fortuitous
conditions in fields and mines with their combined unpre
cedented outputs were mute conspirators in this economic
The last four months of 1907 discovered to the financiers
of the country, the futility of capital made from the wasp of
financial jugglery. They again realized in the broken reeds
on every side that only two sources, "nature's powers and
man's powers," could be relied upon.
However the cry became insistent that the source of trou
ble lay in the circulating medium-money-was falling be
t hind 'in its functions and adaptability to the new order of
a things.
Sight was lost of the economic requirement that stability
disappears when untoward capitalization becomes regnant.
The immediate result was the National Monetary Commis
sion with Senator Aldrich and Representative Vreeland as
chairman and vice chairman. After wide and laborious in
vestigation and study this commission put upon our statutes
the law bearing their hyphenated name which was first in
voked last August.
From 1908 to 1914 the country in the old-fashioned way
had been catching up to its apparent capitalization of 1907.
Six years of fair and sometimes vigorous retrenchment had
brought the circulating medium into natural relationship
with our capital.
The banking conditions of this country were never in a
stronger position to meet financial shock than July 29th.
This cataclysm, had it happened in 1907, would have
found weakness where, in 1914 it found strength that is
equilibrium between capital and demands.
We held, to only mention three items, nine hundred mil
lion bushels of wheat and sixteen million bales of cotton,
transmuted into money, sixteen hundred million dollars
to which add our gold of eighteen hundred million dollars
and in these three liquid assets we had three thousand four
hundred millions.
Back of these factors in ability wealth lay the power of
individual initiative in so moving and placing these elements
of actual capital that the future was looming bright for in
dustrial enlargement..
The clock struck with the declaration of war by Austria,
completely disorganizing for the time the productive ma
chinery of the United States.
Society is an organism, and its unification world-wide.
That the banking machinery of the country was equal to
the sudden and tremendous demands by the five great pow
ers upon its immediate resources has been already amply
proven. The first week of August and by the declaration
of war by England the financial poise had been regained
and the whole country was arranging for its new conditions.
This country, however, must realize henceforth New
York and not London will be the financial center. While
we are without the war zone our position as financial over
lord will demand the highest type of bank management ab
solved from promotions in any form.

These costs ,f pI'ro(lLdtion are at

and taI:payers. The injustice lies inl
that the employer pocketing his prof
its and the consumer of the finished
prodiit or user of the service which
the business supplies, are not paying
their share of the cost of that which
they are getting;.
The progressive state convention in
dorsed the proposed workLman's coin
pensation act, to he voted on Notem
ber '3d. It niIy be noted that it is al
nost identical with tIhe measure passed
by the almost unanimous vote of the
house of the last legislative assembly,
but blocked in the stronghold of the
interests, the senate. It may be of
further interest to bear in mind the
sources of the present opposition to
the proposed law and the methods
employed. Literature, cards, etc., are
frequently distributed to farmers by
representatives of the big corpora.e
interests of the state, showing an un
IIusual solicitlde for the farmers on
nccoln i of the porsihle burden to him
bIy reason, is they claim, of being in
Seluded in tthis hill. If these same in
terests had heret ofore m:tle even a
plretence of hcfriending the farmers,
thelir protest:lillns might be entitled
to considra:ctin. Since when did the
invisible government of Mon'ana, in
this instince visible, becomne the guard
i.in of the farmers' rights?
In the first place, the law, by enu
Iner;ting certain industries as includ
di1, by necessary implication excludes
those of the same or similar classes
not enumerated. That is one of the
cardinal rules of st;itutory construe
Secondly, the Washington law is in
tis reslpect similar to the proposed
Montlana act and the rule established
in that state is that farmers are not
included, even when engaged in clear
ing and grubbing wih machinery, as
incident to the business of farming.
The compulsory feature is also ob
jected to,) urging the elective plan.
Some so-called elective laws, notably
O1hio, Nebraska and Iowa acts, take
away the defenses of assumed risk,
contributory negligence, negligence of
fellow servant, in case the employer
refuses to come in, thus compelling
employers to elect and really amounts
to conlmpulsory election.
Another argument advanced Is that
in self denfense, industries will not
employ any but single men, without
dependents, is equally puerile. That
iargument applies with greater force
under the present or old system, as if I
workers have no dependents, there is c

whether or not the benefits allowed
are just. are insufficient or excessive.
For instance, is $6,000, allowed for

Much larger judgments have been al

lawyer would take half, and the in

the award is not excessive.
