Great Northern system extending
from LAke Superior to the Pacific and
reaching, through its steamship lines,
to China and Japan. During the past
forty years no other man has played
so large a part in the development
of the Northwest. Not only is Mr.

cal authority in the country on raIl
road matters, but his sound sense
and broad grasp of industrial prob
lems give national interest to his ut
terances on questions of the day.
Railroad employes could not choose a
more inopportune time to ask for a gen
eral advance in wages. When the
devastating war in Europpe is over the
question confronting American wage
earners will be that of finding a market
for their labor instead of fixing a price
for it.
'We have a feverish prosperity that
may vanish overnight. The great bulk
of the business now taxing the capacity
of our railroads arises from the war ne
cessities of Europe. The money our peo
ple are getting in pay ent for their
products is being provided on the forced
credit of the combined nations of itu
rope. They are raising these hundreds
of millions by piling up to enormous
heights the debts of their governments.

High Wa-es amd Uigh Piules.
The greatest factor making for high
prices is the wage rate. Everybody
knows that labor cost is the principal
item In all forma of Industry. The wage
rate' has been rising steadily in this
country. Powerful forces are back of
this movement. It has public sympathy.
As the labor supply diminishes wages
rise still more.
High wages and high prices work in
a circle. Every rise of one is reflected
in a rise of the other. But somebody has
to pay these wages. They do not come
out of the air. In the end labor suffers

Mr. Nettleton, of Philadelphia, was in
