Editor Kooweo Courier:
I um afraid that soma of our load
ers outside, and some of our statOS
; men inside, have gone off chasing
i political huttorllles instead of fol
?? lowing their weil understood convic
tions. .Many of thom fear that, with
nu election coming on, thc farmers
I have hoon led astray hy the propa
ganda that their prosperity depends
j upon their foreign markets. Tho
i fanner may ho misled for a while,
: but when ho wakes up and linds him
I self, then ho will bo in a position to
take better caro of himself.
' Tho American farmer's prosperity
depends upon his home market, and
he is coming to realize and know lt.
Highly to ninety per cent of his
produce is either consumed on the
farm or in home inurkcts. But re
cently there has been so HUI ch "hot
air" in the press about buying and
stiling abroad thal it ls lime for
soi;:o one to call a halt anil slat" a
few cold facts.
So said, "In 1921 wo exported
from this country to foreign nations
more than 20,000,000 tons of food
stuffs, an amount more than double
our normal pre-war exports. But it
did not bring prosperity to our farm
ers. Wo lacked the homo market
buying capacity of the millions of
mein normally employed In our fac
tories at good wages, who were then,
and now are, unemployed o>- work
ing but half time."
Herbert Hoover, Secretary of
Commerce, speaking before tho In
terstate Commerce Commission,
"Dur farmers who look to foreign j
ii arkels for their surplus should ;
stop lo consider that our home con- 1
option of meal decreased nearly
V a pounds per capita in I '.' _ : ,
..i:- uly owing lo unemployment- and i
[hat ii Lhls decrease could bo over
come, it would bo worth moro than
per cent increase in our exports."
All ( la- es Hurl by Wage tdt-.
Tho "dollation" of labor, while
most injin ions to Hie workers, has
j hud a correspondingly injurious ef
fect upon all our people. The ex
isting paralysis of business can be
? traced lo wholesale wage slashing.
; When tho workers are well paid and
steadily employed there ls prosperity
a ad a good market, tot only for thc
merchants, but for farmers and man
; ufacturers as well. When half thc
workers aro on the streets socking
employment and the other hali are
being paid wages Insufficient to
maintain a decent standard of liv
ing, there is commercial and indus
trial stagnation and depression.
Constituting, as they do, mare
than half tho population of thpfe
country, tho industrial workers and
their familles must consume tho
greater portion of tho products of
our farms and tho output of our fac
tories. All that tiley have to ex
change for food and other necessar
ies is tho reward of their labor.
When workers aro unemployed or
their earnings curtailed they Inevi
tably must consumo less. That con
dition ls immediately reflected on
commerce and industry. To lt can
be attributed almost entirely the
prostration of agriculture and the
impoverishment of our farmers. This
is tho great economic truth which
every statesman must realize. It ls
so self-evident that a child In gram
mar school can understand lt. And
yet it is ignored and violated every
