They want to get out and do something; now Is the opportune time. Why, you can put a building tip cheaper to-day than you could before' the war, and yet many of our supposed good busienssmen will wait until the war is over as a sign of prosperity and pay more for the building. The wise ! man will prepare now for the boom in trade that we will soon experience and which will be tremendous after the war." . "1 do not expect rapid, but I do expect steadily sustained, Improve ment during 1915," Mr. Farell, of the Steel Trust, told a Pittsburgh au dience. He insisted that a period of renewed prosperity was about to be gin. Inasmuch as the steel business has for years been a barometer af general business, the statement of Mr. Farrell was considered of much Im portance. "This country should be prosperous all the time." was the opinion of Mr. ! Gary. "There should be plenty of work for all who deserve to have work. Neither the capitalist nor the poor man, the nmployer nor the em ploye, lias good reason for discourage ment in this country. It is to be re gretted that there are so many idle men at the present time, and every reasonable effort should be given them the find employment. I have great hopes that the number of unemployed in this country will grow less and less, not withstanding it may be expected, as a consequence of the war, immigration will increase. The opportunities of the United States for success in every direction are very great and never were better. "It remains with us to take advan tage of these circumstances. We should become and remain the leading nation of the world, financially, indus trially and commercially; and, with this foundation, there should be no limit to our prosperity, our influence, our material and moral strength and growth, or our happiness."
