IATURDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1916. t. - 'a new divorce emporium Ariio-s, It la reported, aspires tof . ctt a share of the tourist-divorce traffic. It Is proposed to fix over the .ieatltutlon It will be recalled ;rtthouf difllculty that when it was .adopted that Arizona constitution jWM the most modern, radical, amend ..able, and amenablo constitution in Existence so as to permit citizen .hip to be secured in six months, .and establishing a wide range of .grounds on which it will be granted. Tb good, old plea of "cruolty," just pkin cruelty, which may bo mental jor physical, psychic, or physiologic, will be included in the list. The hotel men of the Arizona towns aro .all reported strong fpr the new measure. Bomohow we guess that the re ports of this new enterprise are, like the story of Mark Twain's death, greatly exaggerated. The women Vote in Arizona, and the woman vote has never been in favor of lax dhrorce laws. There is more proba bility thai,1 if the issue Js seriously raised, a lot of politicians will be put out of business by dint of their alli ance with the hotelkeepers and the easy-divorce movement. THE NEW STREET CAR RULES wonders why its cities wax big, beautiful, and attractivo, while as a whole the commonwealth of Aus tralia fails to develop. The reason Ib plain. Australia has a taste lor doing other things than thoso that tho world wants it and needs it to do. Argentina is getting a like taste. Canada is not without its cosmopolitan flavor; and in our own country, tenant farming is vastly on tho increase, indicating that the proprietors are being lured away to the towns and villages. It is all very rcgrettablo; it make yhe price of butter, eggs, meat, leather, milk, flour and all tho tyible necessaries and agricultural' staples high. But so long as people can get more sat isfaction in living in tho town, they aro going to live there. "Back to tho land' is a flno slogan; but so long as the land is kept away from tho man who really wantB it, and tho town provides superior amuso ment 'why, folks art going to elbow their way into tho town, live the artificial life, and wonder why it's so hard to mako ends meet doing It. IS ANYBODY WORKINO FOR US IN THIS WAY? that it has como firmly to believe that a' Hughes Administration Is the only one that can be expected to give timely, adequate, and effective con sideration to them. OPP051NQ O.OLD INFLATION Unless the public takes enough in terest in the matter to help make the new street car rules mean some thing, they will mean nothing. There is no rule that prevents the peoplo crowding a car if they will continue to climb on after it is filled. If they will Btay off the crowded car, the rules require that they be given room enough to be comfortable, in another car; and if there are not can enough running, in the rush hours, to provide everybody with a seat or seven feet of standing room then, and only then, will the rules have been violated. It is, at last, up to the public. ' There's no use grumbling about bad car service, and then jumping aboard ear packed like a sardine box. About one person in a score is really Willing to let the first car pass him, in order to get a seat. Yet under the new rule, if people will but let the crowded car pass and wait for a comfortable one, they will bo taken care of. Moreover, they will not be delayed; for the business of taking on and off passengers, in the rush period, is greatly complicated and delayed by crowding the cars. The new car service rules are cal culated to give the public good serv ice if the public seriously wants it. If people get more satisfaction out of hanging to straps and grumbling, they will be able to extract just that satisfaction under this regime. If they will co-operate to the extent of mak ing It possible to spread the rush hour traffic over a sufficient period to determine just how many cars are necessary to provide comfortable ac commodations, the rule will compel that the cars be put on. WHY SOME THINQS ARE COSTLY If there had not been a war, or a huge production of gold, or au tomobiles, or moving pictures, or wireless telegraphy, or any of the marvels of this particular decade, some things would have been ex pensive. The war and the gold sup ply and the general tendency to re gard as necessaries many things that would have been luxuries a few years, ago, have had their ef fect But there are other causes. Take leather. Russia bought nine million dollars worth of it in one order in this country; said to be the biggest leather order ever placed. The reason for a world wide scarcity of leather underlies the war. Leather was getting scarce before the war was dreamed pf. People who studied the figures published by our Department of Agriculture knew the crisis had to come. The world was not raising animals enough to provide it with leather. Neither was it producing enough sheep to maintain the sup ply of wool. These are two great staples. The war has accentuated and compelled attention to the con ditions that involve them; but those conditions existed before there was a war. Leather and wool are intimately related. Australia, alone, could have guarded the world against any early shortage of these articles, if only Australia had been willing to stick at the production of sheep and cattle. But it wasn't. Australia is as big as the United States, and has about 6 per cent as many people. They are peculiarly afflicted with the desire to live in town. Austral Jan cities are centers of the liveliest sporting, theatrical and generally cosmopolitan life. The ranges are deserted as soon as the ranchman can nfford to move on and enjoy pM Ufa of the city. So Australia Speaking to the New York Cham ber of Commerce, Wlllard D. Straight expressed the opinion that there 1b real danger that after the war our exports might fall to a fig ure even below that of the period before the war. This would mean a tremendous, almost a cataclysmic, readjustment. We are exporting now at the rate of about six billions of dollars a year. Before tho war closes there Is every reason to believe that the volume will be still greater. . In the last rep resentative, year before the war ex ports of merchandise were about $2,300,000,000. So that it is per fectly possible in fact, highly prob able that by the time tho war ends wo shall be exporting three times as much as when it began. Suppose Mr. Straight is correct Suppose we shall, at the war's end, be producing and sending away five billions of dollars more in values than when tho war began. Suppose that that entire five billions of busi ness shall in a short time be wiped out, and perhaps inroads made on the business we were normally doing before hostilites started. What will happen 7 It is not safe to assume that this may not bp our experience. There are indeed two views. Some people insist that while the nature of Eu rope's demands will greatly change, tho volume of business will continue a considerable time. Others say that when the war ends the neutral world will again be able to finance itself, and will add a great demand to the peace requirements of Europe; so that the two together will insure tho substantial maintenance of the for eign tfade volume. But the Straight opinion is widely entertained; notably by many people who have been looking Into affairs abroad, and considering seriously the possible effects of the economic alli ances among the -European coun tries. Not very much attention has been given In this country to those alliances. They are taken far more seriously on the other side than they arc here. The other side ought to know, for it is even more intimately and deeply concerned than we are. Norway, Sweden, and Denmark have bound themselves in one alli ance; the central powers in another; the entente nations in a third. No one of their alliances is intended to be commercially friendly to us. Ev ery one of them, in the very nature of things, must be hostile to our in terests, because we will be the "good picking" of the world: they will want to get some of our gold, our trade, our financial power, away from ub. Are Americans, is the American Government, giving as much, atten tion to this whole subject as should be given? Mr. Straight notes that "the best political, economic, and dip lomatic minds of Europe have for the last two years been intently at work devising trade policies which if put into effect would eliminate much that is inherent in the international tariff structure which has been de veloped since 1871." It 1b not proposed here to con sider what the United States is go ing to do about all this; only, in all earnestness, to press the question, Is the United States doing anything to prepare for eventualities? Have the "best economic, diplomatic, and po litical minds" In this country been giving the attention the subject de serves? It does not seem that they have. Certainly there has been little to justify belief that the present Administration entertains adequate conception of the set of problems here suggested. There was too long a delay before the Administration and the country awoke to the need of military preparedness. If war had come, that delay would have caused disaster. Thus far war has not come. But peace is certain to come; and the need to prepare for new eco nomic conditions that will come with it, is not less grave than the need to prepare for possible war. There is no doubt that peace will return. No doubt that it will bring its new prob lems. The country needs be plan ning to cope with them. It is not doing so, and one reason why today it is tending toward Mr. Hughes is Don Marquis Column The Federal Reserve Board has no Information concerning' tho report that New York bankers have askedi the British government not to send more Kold to this sldo. It is not sur prising that thero should be report of sucn ncwon, nor improunuic vuuv tho report is correct. Accumulations of gold In this country now represent one-third of the world's store, it is calculated. Wo are in a period of inflation of which the end is not in sight. Somo authorities have recently expressed belief that there will be a furthor advance of 30 to 60 per cent in com modity prices in tho noxt half year. That would impose severe hardship on the great mass of people. Stated incomes cannot possibly be cxpectod to advancd at such a pace. Wages notoriously advance more slowly than' prices In times of inflation; the fact that they also recede more slowly In times of contraction, whilo It makes averages less impressive, docs not help the household that con' fronts greatly increased costs with out correspondingly increased in comes. To say that Americans aver age five feet eight inches tall doesn't worry the man who is taller or shorter; but a Procrustean order to saw off the excess from tho taller men and to stretch tho shorter ones to the averago length would be dis tinctly annoying. Likowise, tho worker who is assured that his wages will be plonty when prices be gin to fall two or three years hence, will not find the data very filling In these times of $1.90 wheat. If it is true that the allies have so successfully mobilized their gold that they" are actually able to make a great nation like tho United States beg -them not to send It any more, then indeed have we come to the time of fiscal miracles. As we have repeatedly pointed out, tho world produces about twice as much gold per annum now as it did at the he ginning of thiB century. The largor part of -it is produced within the British empire. Recent advices from South Africa, the greatest gold field in the world, indicate that war's necessities have caused a sharp in crease in production there. So it is quite possible that tho allied na tions might actually be in position to feed gold to the United StateB until it would have to cry quits. It is time to expect such tactics. The advertisement of the latest British loan in this country sug gested istrongly that the supply of gilt-edged securities that Britain can put up as collateral for loans on this side, is Kettine low. If it becomes exhausted, Britain will confront the necessity of choosing between two alternatives. She must pay us In rold for what she buys here, or In duce us to accept government bonds unsecured by collateral. Much conjecture has been indulged as to this country's attitude toward a series of great loans on govern ment bonds of Britain and France. Financiers, of course, protest that they would be perfectly good; moBt people believe it. But Americans are not much accustomed to that kind of finance. They aro not hab ited to acting as the world's banker; they are rather in the pawnbroking stage of financial development, wanting to see the collateral and be sure it is good. It would be a marvel of financial ingenuity if the British and French financial authorities would be able actually to force the United States to buy their bonds, with the threat of paying in' gold if the bonds wero not taken I Such a performance would not have been imagined by the most flighty financier, two years ago. Most peoplo believed, then, that a flow of gold in our direction was an unmixed blessing; the more gold, the better; if we got all the world's cold, we would have the world's whole financial power. Now we are learning that too much gold may be as unfortunate as too little. If the entente nations want to compel us to buy their bonds, and pay for them in commodi ties, they might very plausibly force our hand by threatening us with gold. If they have the gold, and are willing to send it, they may indeed compel this country actually to pre fer bonds. GOOD SHEPHERD TO WE HOPE THET NEVEIl MEET.
