THOSE people who conclude that war in Europe would help business conditions in the United States are reasoning from a past that the business of the world has grown away from. There was a time when European wars did contribute temporarily to prosperity in this country, though marked re actions always followed. That was when the exports of the United States were chiefly foodstuffs, the price of which advanc ed when large armies had to be fed and when the scarcity of rural labor resulted in shortening the agricultural products of the countries engaged in the war. It was also a time when this country was in great need of immigration which always was stimulated by wars abroad. However it is pretty generally agreed now that the loss es which ensue from interrupted development when the money cf the world is required to finance a war are far greater than the profits from the abnormal demand for those things that c.re consumed by fighting armies. This would be particularly marked at this ame when ?he whole business world has not yet recovered from a prolonged "ericd of depression. The develop ment along commercial and financial lines has brought the dif ferent sections of the world so closely in touch with each other that disasters in one section concern those of all sections, and war is nothing if not disaster. The first year of the new tariff saw the trade balance of the United States cut down by the amount of $87,000,000. During the first year of the Dingley tariff it was reduced by $186,000,000. It was $163,000,000 less during the first year of the Payne-Ald rich tariff than the year before. Evidently there has been noth ing worse for the country than the Democratic tariff bill except the two Republican tarifT bills which preceded it. UNCLE SAM NOT "MILITARISTIC." WE wonder how many people have marked the very significant fact that the government of the United States is every year becoming more and more militaristic.?Nome Industrial Work er. Not many, we hope. Otherwise we would fear that the num ber who follow the trend of growth in the land is too small. The fact is that the course of the American people is away from things military and such like. The country is becoming more and more democratic. The average citizen is a far more im portant individual in this country than he has been at any time in a generation or two. The government of the United States is being transferred from the trappings of army and navy and from back offices and secluded dining rooms to the numberless public. Mayor Gill, of Seattle, did not overdraw the illustration of what is taking place throughout the United States when, in re sponding to a toast at Everett the other day. he told or his own evolution and why it had brought satisfactory results. Here is the way he put it: "You called on me because you wanted to see a man who has been through political hell and got out again. "I was in political hell, and the temperature was working over time. "I got out again. I figure, because of my ability to see my mistakes. "It takes no political Daniel to read the hand writing on the wall. "We are living in the future, not in the past. "We have passed from a representative republic to pure democracy. "Every man is a business man from the hod carrier to the bank president. "And the mao who carries the hod controls more votes than the man who runs the bank." The Colonel's criticism of President Wilson's part in the cns>"tinent of the present t ;r;ff law recalls the fact that the self same Roosevelt, although i:i the White House seven years, never dared touch the taritt. Fall fashions for men decree clothes moulded to the form and "shapely" trousers. The tailor's art will still be to provide the shape to go with the style.
