An Jt 0pen Letter on Interest Rates
There is noticeable in the daily
press a very agonizing cry that
the state will soon be ruined, if
payments for compensation to in
jured workmen and to widows and
children of workmen killed in ser
vice be made interest-bearing by
law. Never before have the peo
ple of Montana had the disastrous
effects of paying excessive inter
est brought to their attention in
such lurid light. One would think
that nothing had been said on this
subject before in the history ol
matters on whose ox i s gored. In
the proposed law the rate of in
terest which will be charged on
deferred payments of compensa
if the law is enacted by the
voters, in Montana is only 5 per
cent per annum. Curiosity asks
how this rate would compare with
the general ideas of the people of
the United States on the
The Legal Rale
The ordinary legal rate in Mon
tana is 8 per cent per annum and
one naturally wonders how that
rate which working men pay when
they borrow money (unless they
pay more) compares with the rates
of mterest in other states An ex
amination of the rates of interest
in other states shows two things:
(1) that the usual legal rate of
interest in Montana is as high as
any state in the Union and higher
than all except seven states, (2)
the other interesting fact, that the
people advocating interest on de
ferred payments to workmen at a
rate of only 6 per cent per annum
are somewhat modest in behalf of
the workingmen who are crippled,
and the families of those that are,
killed in service. Only three of the
states have as low a legal rate of
interest as 5 per cent and not a
single one has a rate of interest
lower than 5 per cent per annum,
Table of Interest,
The table of interest rates
might be interesting to voters for,
two reasons; The voters may think
that the rate of 5 per cent sug
gested by the new. law to be paid
to working folks is not immoder
ato, because no state has a lower
rate of interest than 5 percent;
some voters may think that it is
high time for the Montana legisla
ture to follow the lead of other
states, particularly in the North-1
come to the conclusion that 8 per
cent is an abnormally high and
disastrous rate of interest.
For persons who are interested
in such matters the following table
is appended:

An analysis of the foregoing

a fair and just and legal rate,

Many Banka Fail
This disaster has been seen in
Montana. About twelve years ago,
due mostly to our high interest
rate a large number of tin-horn
banks sprung up all over Montana.
They lasted two or three years
and as was inevitable, in one year,
in Montana, 226 little banks (and
some big ones) went broke. The
high interest rate which encourag
ed the starting of the worthlet«?
banks prosper a little while, and
then with any little disturbance,
they go broke.

A Neglected Birthdayi
May 91h, 1930, has passed and
again the people of the United
States have ignored their oppor
tunity to pay tribute to one of the
unique and exalted characters in
their own history. This man was
born May 9, 1800, when the great
est French commander was pre
paring the campaign of Marengo.
This man died by hanging 59 years
later, and then the greatest
French man of letters said of him,
"He has made the gallows as holy
as the Cross!'' America alone de
spises his memory, because he
stood for everything that present
day America despises, and he des
pised everything that is idolized
by our dominant civilization. His
soul, somewhat lonely in these lat
ter years, is marching on.

Asked Reason Why
The gasoline war is based on a
«umber of charges. When a com
mittee discovered that gasoline re
fined in Wyoming and shipped
through Montana was sold several]
ce «ts cheaper in Spokane, Wash.,
than in Montana it asked this con
ce ™ "^by?"
! " A gasoline war has compelled
us to slash prices in Spokane,"

Public investigators can see no
reason why gasoline should be so
much cheaper in Wyoming and the
Dakotas than in Montana. They
state that for some reason

beknownst to them—"Probably be
cause we've been suckers and have
stood for it so long," remarked
one man—Montana seems to be
the state in which oil
charge the most.
Nor is the Butte "uprising" the
only straw which shows the
the wind is blowing,
entai Oil company is accused by a
Montana refinery operating in the
vicinity of Conrad, Shelby and
nearby cities of waging an unfair
war against the home concern.
Specifically, the charges allege
that this concern raised its price
of gasoline one cent in all sections
of Montana except the north cen
tral Montana section where Mon
tana refineries served patrons.
There, the Continental slashed its
prices two cents, it is charged.
Montana Penalized
"In other words," complainant
spokesmen state, "the major part
of Montana was penalized one cent
a gallon to finance a discrimina
tive and unfair gas war Waged by
a foreign concern against a home
What will be the outcome of the
squabble is, of course, unknown.
However, well informed authori
ties state that' if some concessions
are not immediately made, and
material concessions, too, that oil
companies will find themselves
faced with the unique situation of
competing with the public they
attempt to serve.

out in the country and be fired
after working two weeks. It's just
like slavery."
