The meeting also took steps to ward a further cooperation bet ween farmers and workers, ar ranged for circulation of petitions to kill the highway patrol law, and to save the state insurance law, laid plans to meet the drive for foreclosures and evictions that it is expected will be launched by predatory loan companies this fall and made preliminary arrange ments for participation in coming conferences toward the launching of a national Farm-Labor party.

Capitalists Now Mak ing Vain Attempt to Revive Industry. * New York. — Nothing could be more ominous for capitalism than the present movement of the fig - ures for world unemployment fur nished by the International Labor Office at Geneva. The curve is flattening out. In spite of reviv ing industry and increasing profits unemployment is refusing to come down. Production again climbs, but a vast international army of job less workmen remains, more than 20,000,000 strong. Unless reviving industry and trade can bring that figure down— and down pretty fast—the men and women who must be fed and housed and clothed from the public purse may destroy the system— and capital knows it. Already Germany and Italy are seeking a way out through mak ing ready for war. Under a fascist regime there is no other escape from the econorpic burden—but it is by no means certain that war will save international capitalism. Out of Reserves In Great Britain and the United States, capitalists are seeking sal vation in again beginning to re lease money for rebuilding old in dustries and starting new ones. The money in this country is not coming from public offering of stocks and bonds, but out of the enormous reserves which industry has piled up. If business moves fast enough, this may for a time keep the wheels going. The great difficulty is that new technical processes can increase production without ' adding very many more workers ! ; ' j , j NO COUNTY FAIR THIS SEASON Commissioners and Com mercial Club Can't Agree On Who Shall Provide Funds Sheridan County will have no fair this year, according to in formation just given out. It ap pears that the County Commis sioners made an appropriation of $1100 for fair purposes and fair ground property, including up k ®®P and insurance, sometime earlier in the season.

The movement of world unem ployment shows world forces at work that dwarf efforts of any particular country. A monthly index number com piled by the International Labor Office and adjusted so as to re move seasonal influence shows a steady, inexorable rise until the latter part of 1932 and then down ward, until the beginning of this year. It reveals forces that work throughout the world, tying to gether all nations that depend lar gely upon industrial production fo* their economic existence. SeteSaw When Great Britain France, Belgium, Switzerland lose ground. When Japan pushes forward, Great Bri tain loses, and so forth—the gains of one country balancing the loss es of another. International capi talism is reaching a stalemate; world recovery is coming to a halt. Everyone must ask: What next? It is clear that the industrial ma chine must continue to provide for an almost insupportable army of unemployed, which may in fact at any moment turn into an active army of revolutionists, as happen ings in France suggest—or it must set up a system that will at last put unemployed to work mak ing things for themselves on a non-profit, cooperative basis. That might indeed solve the problem— but that, too, might be the end of capitalism. - gams, Holland and ANGV1CK IN TOWN Lars Argvich of Reserve and state senator for Sheridan coun ty, was a business visitor in Plentywood Friday.

BIGGER BOSSES the Banks Bulge Witn Coin Loans to Business Decline to New Low Levels. Busi ness Does not Borrow. Government Loans and Sneculation Get Funds New York, Sept. 2. — The "help the banks to help business" policy ardently pursued by both the Hoo and Roosevelt administrations is shown a failure at the end of ver six years' trial. The Federal Reserve Syctem re ports that loans to business of the reporting member banks have de clined to a new low level for the depression. Business is not bor ro'wing. Indeed, the Federal Reserve re ports that but one dollar out of eight of its assets is loaned to bus iness, three to the government and nearly three to speculation. To End Depression The theory was that if the RFC poured hundreds of millions of taxpayers' money into the banks, the bankers would lend that mon ey to business men, and lo, the de pression would be over. General Charles G. Dawes preached that as RFC chief. To prove it, be re signed from the RFC and borrow ed 90 million* from it for his own bank.

Aug. 29. — Food for thought in large juantitiea given politicians last Week whem Alberta went in a largo way for the Social Credit party and in the process all but obliterated Conser vatives, Liberals and United Far mers.

The theory has worked out a bout that well generally. The banks are glutted with funds. New York banks report an all-time high in deposits. Relief officials report an all-time high in suffer ing. Swollen bank deposits have not ended depression. Not Going to Business Bank funds are not going into business but into speculation and government bonds. The full an alysis of the distribution of bank assets shows: Government financing_87% 32% 18% Loans for Speculation Loans for Business ... Reserve .-.. 18% The government has sold the banks federal bonds, thus building up its deposits in the banks. Then it has transferred those deposits to others through federal spend ing. Moreover, the government has nine billions in gold reserve in stead of less than five a few years ago. All this has made it possible for the banks to lend vast sums to business. Yet borrowings from banks are at the lowest level once 1896 having all but vanished.
