Hut If tlm purpose Is to establish a business and fully accept mlstlnit opportiinltlea, a trip lo llm bank may be very inofltably made. Whether or not the rlty was run without Inclining Imlsbtednt as, it Is manifestly trim that It wns without liven measurable police, prona tion, und Ita stieels have deterlointed to a point where thoy nro both an outntue nnd n source of Kravn peril. Which brlnns us to the point wa desire lo make at this Hum. Wo think Tlllsa should have wt llm eiiillent I iMrnfiiiin Mioirioui a miiuii'ipai ixiviiiK piaia inr llm purpose of repalrlnn worn streuts. On some of the streets there havo been tepalrs mads within the last sli months thai did not last a week. Thete urn broken spots In some of tho pavltiR that havo been tepulied Illicit or four limes within Hint period. And they nro nl the. moment In a wotso condition than ever. This la hocuusn the repairs wore not propaily imidn In the flist Inslunco and this inefficient wny of carliiR for I ho streets is tho most i:t penslvo thnt can bo tiudei taken. With a munlcl pul plant properly equipped and inannRed tho wear and tear on tlm streets can bo taken earn of In tho tight way nl the right time. There will thus bo afforded u wny to profitably use those whoso lufrncttons of the law have earned for them n forfeiting to society. While wo nie not enthusiastic for public own ership iih n Kencral proposition, we ran sea no reason why such n plant, started on a mod erate scnln ns a patching plant, can not ho ei peeled lo dovelop Into a plant capable of han dling a Miry coiisldeiabto part of the city's paving. Especially In those places where the city property Itself lien is tho heaviest pottlon of expense. Wo very earnestly commend tho suggestion to the new administration. Wo feel quite sure that public opinion will sustain It fully in making the establishment of a municipal patch ing plant ono of Its first objectives. It would bo n fulso economy to permit the present con dition to run on for nny great length of time. Tlm ohtig holes must be ropnlrod, and they can only bo repaired properly through thu adaplutlon of efficient methods. ' n K txiiptioii Ic lb.- fanner.

Ho until: "Owing tho United Stales MS, 0011.000, -000 lMropn Is hiinkrupt and probably will never pay Ita debt. ... There are few men who really have any hopn that any pari of tho inleruatloiial debt will bo p.tld." 11 Is necessary thnt you should understand that this Is not a pin-Heiiimn that is speaking: not an I. W. or an International socialist, but a conservative hunker holding high placo In International finance. Continuing lie pointed out In detail that the Kurnpcan nations hnvo long been Insolvent, und says that it Is with reluctance that ho feels Impelled to glvo figures showing that tho credit of Orenl Britain wns long ago exhnusted. When a banker continues to grunt credit to a patron whose huslness is Insolvent wo all know what happens lo that banker. What Is to bo said of government officials who persist in extending credit lo n nation whoso, credit and resources has dropped below tho point of surety and good business? Are we to tend In this f i auk confession from the lips of Mr. I'leutisii the leal leasoiis for thu frenzied efforts in certain flnnuclnl circles lo force Undo Hani Into tho league of na tions, thus mortgaging the resources of tho creditor its collateral to bolster the credit of tho debtor? The truth concerning much Is slowly trickling hrougli the dike of consulship and secrutlvo diplomacy. Hut we fancy that eventually wo shall get it all. SIlir.l.lHHT ON Till: II. f. OP I,. The high cost of living hns many facets. The following from tho American Agi IculturUt pio sents the viewpoint of tho farmer, that gioatest nnd most necessary of nil ptoduccis: "I'rom iKinkor to candlestick maker, from millionaire to da laborer, we are spending money like tile old-time drill. kn sailor of course, more Is RolnH for the ucicsxlUca of lite. Hut never In the hlstoiy of America was there Huc. a cruse for luxuries and pleasures of life People are out fur u good time' regardless of cost. "Amerlcant have ulu.ijs been notoriously Tree spenders. Ono keen obiervor says there is nothing strange about It. for with the war and the Influenaa scourge poplt have had enough trouble the past two yowrs. They have censed to worry. They don't care, "To all this the fiirn.er Is reconciled. If city folks want to spend so much on movies, automobiles and pleasure, that la their tiiisl nSM. llowexer, when these same folks kick about the prices farmers must have to break even, then It becomes the farmers' buslnecti. Our farmers do not Intend to actopi Lmlow production cons for their produce to the end that consumers can spend less on necessities nnd mure on luxuries and pleasure That Isn't the kind of team work that will main tain American industry." Of course tho nrgtiment thus put Into the nfouths of tho farmers Is good for ths wage earner, the salaried man and so on ml 'Infinitum without end. Hut tho Indictment of tho first paragraph stands.

CHAIRMAN C.OOD, of the house appropriation committee, in courageously opposing the sol-dlcr-bonus bill tho other day, drovo to tho very heart of tlm whole eco nomic, situation with a brevity rarely equaled, "This proposed cush bonus," he said, must bo taken out of an empty treasury. It will Increase the cost of living of every man. woman irul child In the country. Then you are going to faco tho wrath of 100.000. 000 people. The present unrest over tho country In duo to thn high cost of living. Tha open road to content ment Is to reduce the cost " Tho whole thing Is In that sen tence. "No mntter where you put the tax,'' added the chairman. It Is going to finally bo placed on tho man who vats food and who buys clothing." Which Is as true as nny wont In holy writ. Gentlemen seeking spe cial favors from government and at tempting to wheedle tho taxpayers Into voting unnecessary funds on tho spncloiiH argument that 11 will not cost the puoplc anything, nre either Ignornnt or knaves. Tor whenever u dollar Is spent in any manner other thun ns an Investment In a produc tive enterprise, tlm laws of economics will sooner or later chalk the final entry against something the con sunier la compelled to purchase. You can fool the people, some limes, but you can't fool economics at all. Tho immutable laws of that science move deliberately and un mercifully, nnd they lescnt iluflauco and exact therefore nn awful toll. The proposed soldier bonus Is n grntully. it is easy enough to estab llshr the merit of such a gratuity If only that Is tho object snug:. Hut gratultlCM of this nature are expensive at nny time, and In the present posture of affairs aru positively perilous. Kor It Is truo that tho present highly Inflated eco nomic and Industrial fabric cannot endure for any extended period without an explos'on that will bo heard around the world. Kor thu national legislature to further aggrn. wite the condition would border eloae on treason Sentiment . Sanllj. Sentiment Is a fine thing. It would be lamentable should a people reach that point where a purn ty sentimental appeal failed to arouse them. Hut the time Is hero when sentiment must glye way to n.tue, sound, practical think, ing and acting. It must be ground under foot with a rigor as deter mined as that with which the war time problems were faced. Other wise our real troubles aro yet lo bo experienced. A contented, solvent nation, governed by practical consid erations Is preferable to a bankrupt nation of sentimentullstM. It is not only the excessive and outrageous expenditures of govern ment long after the war has ended that are finding their way into the price asked for every article of com merce, but the same thing Is true of every grautully of every kind. It Is erroneous thinking that spreads abioad the notion that only public expenditures by the government add to the cost of livLig; that only tlne excecseb which find their direct way o the tux receipts are to be blamed for the existing economic distemper. livery dollar raised by every drive, whether for relief In the imir east or relief in the far east, whether for the lied Cross or the purple cross or the double-cross, whether for the Catholic church or the Protestant church: whether for the relief of the orphans of the Cumberland or for the maintenance of some privately or. dered or owned elimosynary Institu tion here In Oklahoma; whether for church extension In Tlmbucto or a new church edifice In Tulsa, Vl S.

Parasites Aro Dangerous, Kvery charitable movement Is In the very naturo of tho thing para sitic. That makes every such move ment decidedly unsound from tho standpoint of economics. This fac', undisputed and .indisputable, should be Impressive, since wo are taught tho ulltmato danger that lurks In ull parasitic movements. Some of the ihlngH society finds it desirable and necessary ;o do seem to bo capa. ble of accomplishment only through then) parlsitlc channels Hut the dnngcr in extending such work be yond Us absolutely necessary bounds must bo apparent lo ull. Tho war gnvo us u new industry nnd a new crop of skilled exports. We refer to tho art of getting In stead of earning money. Prior to our wur-tlmo oxpcrlenco men nnd women went out to ask charity of their nolRiirax with snmo diffidence and In meekness. They were mnro or less apologetic, because they knew that they weie on ground that could bo maintained only by such an atti tude. Most people shunned that sort of work, no matter how laudable the purpose. ! All this has changed. Kxperlence at a time uiiun tho herd Instinct had ! through fear given way to maudlin sentiment, discovered that getting ! money for nothing wus tho en!em thing tn the world And, amazed at their former moderaion. tho Ideal ists and the theorists and the fad dists, turned professional and set up organizations to strong-arm the pub. 11c. "Demand" was substituted for "solicit." Now, when anybody sets nn or ganization going, the first thing Is to cull In the professional dilvo experts, arrange the percentage and point to tho American public. Tho profes sional dilve chieftains don't bat an ee at the size of the fund asked for, A million dollars now doesn't cuuso half the hesitation that a thousand once did The corps of speakers, solicitors, and so on are carefully drilled.

I listened to him bemcan his own people and country, paint the glo ries of thu folks over there und make misstatements that, coming from an other source than the pulpit I should not hesltnto to designate by tho short und ugly word. Ho related n mar velous story which showed thy of tort that hud been expended In edit. Ing nnd rehearsal, but ho was not letter perfect and at times floun dered for his cue. Ho told of entering a church in Armenia breaking down tho door, uml there finding an lS-ycar-old maiden crucified on tho wall behind the altar, and then, letting his eye wander around the fresco, counted lid other young maidens crucified and nailed to the walls. I didn't believe a word of that. I don't believe a single word of it. 1 1 swallowed his story In oilier reaper's, j thoujib It vvius nothing more or lens I than ii skillfully worded romance, with himseif as chief flguro und solo i hero. Hut. knowing that the world i.i covered literally covered by enterprising newspapers men tak ing tho big stories of the war and since tho war, I knew that If thlj church clinrnal house of crucifixion had really existed tho story would have blazed out from every printed puge. If I err'ln nny matter I hopo Ood will forgive me, but that chap im pressed mo as nothing but profes sionalism working from the pulpit, lie wanted donations for some sort of relief In somo land or other, and, wanting money, of course America was the place to get it, and Tulsu tho place In America. 1 think he erred again, lie told of appearing before tho senate com mute on foreign affairs and hem Ins an American senator buy that tho solution of the Armenian problem was to let tha Turks and disease kill off ull itho Armenians, then there would he no Armenian question to bother about. Ho charged a United States senator with that sort of statement. And I snld to myself that he wns Just plain lying; for no American politician with fcnso enough to get into the sonatu nonfM permit himself tn mako any such statement, no mutter what he might think. Hut the object of the address wns thus achieved.
