Credit Inflation Cause, Say
Republicans.
The Wit Ktp In endlnuvthe high cost
of llvlnir la t6'"top cnJIt Inflation on
the part of tho Treasury through lt t er
tlflcate borrowing poilcy, in the opinion
of members ot tho advisory committee
on policies ami" platform of tho lUpub
Ilrnn National Committee
Tho snb-commltteo wni named by Will
Jf. Hays, chairman of the National Com
mlttec to frame HugtreRilon for conaid
tratlon of tho National Convention.- Or
don h. Mllla la chairman of tho executive
committee. Tha reports submitted yes
terday dealt with the high com of living
mid Immlcrallon.
Itovlewlng the causes which led up to
0nflatd prices, the committee points out
that tho man 6n salary Is tho onn who Is
euC'irlnc most ilamace. The prlmo rca
son ror tli hlRlt rort of living has bfn
b to per oenl. depreciation In the pur
chaslntr power of tha dollar, the repoit
states.
"In lieu of certificate borrowing, tho
existence ot tho flontlng debt xhould be
recosnlr.cd, Its volumo determined and
rciponslblllty for It fixed," tho report
states. "If elrcumslnneoa permit a
funrtlnff operation or discharge by taxa
Hon, this ahould bo done. If short term
renewal In Inevitable, this hhould be if
compllshed through obligations ndjust!
as to Interest ratco so iih to Insure bona
fide Investment absorption from out of
existent credits Instead of lodging with
the bunks under n form Of ndmlniurh
tlvo compulsion and payment by tddl.
tlonal credit creation."
Showing that the country M now car
rying on Its business with twice ns
much money and bank deposits as be
fore tho war, the report deals with 'ho
three stages of the Inflation movement.
Too (treat reliance hns been placed upon
certificates, of indebtedness In connection
with wa" borrowing, the committee
finds. The report continues:
"The bitter penalty of price Inflation
Is tha' Us oVlU are, In large .part, beyond
remedy, We cannot hope soon to return
from the economic d!.turbnncen Ot the
credit expans'on, public and private, of
tho past five years, nor to return to the
conditions from which It ban dislodged
us. 1'rlco Inflation Is an unwelcome
process In which tho genci.it Interest Is
likely to find ItSf If opposed by particular
kroups. Speculative elements In the
bualnost world will bp dlnpleased at the
prospect of lower markets; the debtor
body wll. resent, as to unwisely as
turned obligation!!, tho burden ot heavier
Interest charge; tho publlu treasury will
be called upon to bear the weight of a
heavier debt pressure.
"llut If speedy nnd complete return to
before war prlcoa be a counsel of per
fection, thero are certain wholesome
things that can bo dpne. and It M upon
these that present effort should be cen
tred. In the first place, theic hhould be
no placid acnulescence In the existing
stato of affairs and no tolerant uncon
cern m to tho courses which havo
brought Us there. Ilesnonslbllltv for In.
flatlon should be definitely and spo- j
clflCally ae.Ucned. Only a full recogni
tion of the part which tho fiscal methods
of the part five years have played In j
it,K ug iu uur present liana W ill ai-
ford sure vrotectlon for the future.
"in the second place there should bo
no further recourise, under any wanant
or pretext, to those fiscal methods and
banking practices which have up to this
time encouraged- or permitted inflation.
To tolerate an ill Is one thing, to aggra
vate Is another. The doctrine of Drao-
tlcal necessity may do yeoman service
In defence of unsound wartlmo policies ;
it may not be as securely Invoked In tho
caimer years that follow. Finally,
though we may not fully retrace our
steps nor undo tho largest mischief
that has been done, our faces should
be set In the trie direction.
"The great evil of Inflation has been
social Injustice. To alone In part for
thla by a giadual but courageous con
traction of bank credit, with Its rea
sonable certain consequence of an ap
preciating money unit as speculation Is
checked and production catches up is
a wise and Just policy. If we neglect
this, under tho Influence of flnanclul con
venience and business advantage, we
shall fall to correct the situation.
"Designed originally to anticipate the
proceeds of war loans and taxed without
monetary strain, tho Treasury certifleato
of Indebtedness has degenerated since
the armistice into a device for masking
the existence and for staving off tho
maturity of tho huge floating debt. Tho
procedure of credit Issues to balance
current budgets, which Secretary Glass
fo violently reprobated In the case of
European ttates, has In essence been
our practice during the post eighteen
months. Whereas, our late Allies have
used inconvertible note Issues we hao
employed the more Insidious form of
bank credits. Tho Inflating effect of the
EPICUREAN TREAT
Because man must cat to live,
says Savarin, he is invited by
appetite and recompensed by
pleasure.
Yet, no matter how urgent
the appetite, only the gentle
art of cooking can make the
pleasure complete.
Cornmeal, for example, un
cooked would hardly please
even a starving man.
But, made into delicious grid'
die cakes at CHILDS.it is an
epicurean treat.

two methods upon the prlco level has
differed only In degree.
"The prlco level Is tho resultant of two
factors the volume of money and the
mass of commodities. Over nnd above
measures of donation, the Increased rel
ative production ot goods and services
Is therclorc cerlilrp to bring about some
correction of high living costs In ho far
as thexo aro duo to an abnormal in
crease in tho circulating medium. Tho
possibilities of Increased production,

Such a snecdliiB un of Industry Is

ItKolf In providing greater supply of

In operating to supplement a poilcy or

production la sometimes urged as a suf
ficient corrective, of high prices. I'm
till. tends to neglect the Immediate
cause and tho direct remedy. Kfforts In
tho direction of Increased production
rbould iclnforce, not replace n policy of
credit and currency deflation.
(Julto apart from Its fiscal Import
ance, iv policy of drastic economy is now
Imperative from the standpoint ot lower
living costs. Only In this way can ex
isting burdens of taxation b reduced
and Industrial tncrglea bo diverted to
tha Increased production of ordinary
goods and sci vices.
"Tho complement ot public economy
Is private thrift. If further credit ex-pam-lon

ii voided, not only must the savings of
the nation supply the funds for the
liquidation of a formidable floating debt
hut they must also provide for the rapid
enlargement of the country's Industrial
capital, upon which Increased production
very largely depends."

Convention is now complete. Of the 984 Senator Hiram W. John

gress district convention, a State convention or a preferential primary,
while Major-Gen, Leonard Wood has only no legally obligated to
vote for him. The Wood claim ot more than too is bated on delegates,
who, whilo uninstructed, have expressed a preference for the General,
and on the assumption that Wood men will be seated wherevej there
are contests. The serious contests number roa, The actilal status of

"practised physic" in
Rome was the first to make
public the fact that by the

quickly frozen.
He immersed a bottle of
water in a pail of snow, into
which' he ' threw unrefined
salt, turning the bottle con
stantly until the water was
frozen.
