REDUCTION OF WORLD'S GOLD SUPPLY AND ITS EFFECT
THE decrease in gold production that has been noticeable dur
ing the last few years is attracting not a little discussion in
the world's financial circles. Those that are interested in
maintaining property values at something like those now pre
vailing are becoming anxious about the situation, and already
are giving the matter serious consideration. The plans to pro
vide a more elastic currency in the United States will be formu
lated with the purpose of supplying the deficiency in the gold
supply, yet generally there is a trend of thought that it would
be well if there could be an increase in the production of gold.
The prevalence of this opinion cannot fail to stimulate the ef
forts toward development of gold-producing properties in Alas
The Wall Street Journal recently discussed the stoppage
of the flow of new gold into the channels of trade that has
been prevailing. It quotes a recent article from the Economiste
Francaise. written by Pierre Leroy-Balieu, the French economist,
in which the writer insists that the annual rate of production of
gold has come to a practical siandtsill during the past five years,
instead of mounting steadily upwards, as it did during the years
following the Boer war.
, Turning to figures, the Journal says the present stock of
gold money in the world is about $7,500,000,000 .and it thinks
that after deducting that used in the arts and the annual absorp
tion of gold by India, which, incidentaly, has been increasing
heavily in recent years, the present annual addition to the world's
stock of gold can hardly be in excess of $250,000,000. This is
practically no surplus.
"Accepting this contention to be true," proceeds the Jour
nal. "and further, that no future increases in the production of
gold are likely, there will be fair opportunity to test how sound
the quantitative theory of money is in relation to prevailing
high prices. If production of gold has reached its maximum,
and is to decline rather than advance hereafter, then, according
to this theory, prices of all commodities are destined to tend stead
ily downward, in response to the growing scarcity of gold."
The Democrats were accused in the House of Representa
tives the other day of cleaning their feet on the Progressive
p.uty's door mat. Are we to infer that it is conceded that their
feet are clean? That is the important intimation in the charge.
GOVERNMENT 3Y THE PEOPLE
THE contention that the direct methods of legislation that
have been invoked to bring government closer to the people
have a tendency to make demagogues and hypocrites of
those that would serve in representative capacity is not based
on logic nor is it substantiated by experience. In fact they are
having the opposite effect in those States where they are being
worked out. They have a tendency to make issues clearer and
to force candidates for office to stick closer to principals. They
require those seeking legislation to take the masses into their
confidence. They add to the responsibilities of citizenship, and
have a sobering effect on the average man.
One of the ills from which the body politic has suffered has
been the indifference of the citizen. Many of those whose wel
f- rt requires constructive legislation have shown so little inter
est in matters of public importance that they have left the field
of discussion to those who pander to the support of classes of
citizens that have votes to give, or to those that have special in
terests to serve. They become interested in public matters only
when a legislature is in session, and then, all too frequently, they
discover, or think that they discover, that a platform or an ante
election pledge should be broken in the interest of the general
good. The result is unkept platform promises and these have
done more than anything else in the world to cause the wide
spread dissatisfaction at the course of government that exists.
Where the people are in command of their government, is
sues involving the public welfare are threshed out before
the elections, and the people are informed about them. The re
sult is always a better understanding among those of all classes
of the population and of all manner of employment.
If more of the conservative men and women of the country,
that are honestly interested in the up-building of the country,
would spend more of their time and talent in discussing what
they think should be done and why, and less in proclaiming their
distrust of the masses they would not be regarded with so much
suspicion. It is the most natural thing in the world for voters
to view with distrust the actions of those who will not put faith
The sane, patriotic, up-building workingmen are in a large
majority among the laboring classes. Let them have the infor
mation necessary upon which to act intelligently, and no legiti
mate industry will suffer at their hands.
No interest that will bear scrutiny in the light of a full
knowledge of its working need fear to trust the people, and no
interest that will not bear such scrutiny deserves public sup
A London newspaper says England does not welcome Amer
ican militant suffragettes on its shores. That is fair. We are
not hankering after any of the British militant suffragettes on
our shores. It is horse and horse.
THE WOMAN SUFFRAGE VOTE IN MICHIGAN
THE cause of woman suffrage that came so nearly carrying
the election in Michigan last November was lost by a sub
stantial majority in the spring election this month. The
change of sentiment is due, probably, in a large measure to the
capers of the militant suffragettes of Great Britain and the spec
tacular performances of those of the American Atlantic seaboard.
The bomb-throwing, house-burning, fighting women of England
and the foolish enthusiasts of our own country are doing more
to overcome the work of the really earnest, sincere and sane men
and women that have devoted time and talent to securing the
light of franchise for women than any other influence with which
the latter have to contend.
