Blames High Cost of Living
on Middlemen in Talk
to Farmers
President Declares America Should Not
Be Niggardly in Feeding the World
Did Not Mention Petition for Embar
go on Foodstuffs.
WASHINGTON, Nov. lo. Presi
dent Wilson blamed middlemen for the
high cost of foodstuffs here last night
in a speech welcoming to Washington
the convention of the National Grange,
and in urging farmers to increase their
output, the President said:
ve ougnr to raise such lug crops
that circumstances like the present can
never recur, when men can make it ap
pear as if the supply was so short that
the middleman could charge for it what
he pleased. It will not do to le nig
gardly with the rest of the world in re
spect to its food supply."
President Wilson did not mention re
cent pennons to mm to declare an em
bargo on exportation of foodstuffs from
the Cnited States, and he did .not refer
even indirectly to the outcome of the
presidential election.
"It seems to me," said the President,
"that some of the most interesting
problems of our life and of the life of
the world lie before us, problems in con
nection with which the farmers of the
Fnited States will play a part such as
they have never played before.
"It goes without saying that the phys
ical life of the nation has always de
pended upon the farm. It goes with
out saying, also that to a large extent
the physical life of the world has drawn
its sustenance from the great areas of
farm land in the Fnited States.- We
have sent food to all parts of the world,
and the American farmer has contribut
ed to the life of all the countries of the
world. IJ nt you know that as our own
population has increased the proportion
in which we could help foreign countries
as contrasted with oar own has de
creased, and there are problems that are
comparable with the problems of states
manship lying ahead of the farmers of
the United Mates.
"In the future we have got to bring
more of the area of the Fnited States
under cultivation than is under cultiva
tion now. We have got to increase the
product at every point where it is sus
ceptible of being increased.
"I wish that all problems of govern
ment were displayed in as clear lines of
duty as this problem of government
with regard to how the farmer ought
to be treated is displayed. I wish, for
example, that foreign affairs wore as
simple as agriculture. The great satis
faction about what you have to discuss
is that when once your duty is deter
mined we have got a great force of in
telligem-e to go forward in the line of
duty. i
.. " The. thing that makes a free country
vital is the large number of people who
got together to do important things
without asking the leave of the govern
ment to do them. The striking thing
about a great country like the Fnited
States is that if the government neglect
ed everything, the people would
do it; that you do not beckon to the peo
ple of the Fnited States, they command
you to go on, and things that are
neglected they have got plenty of brains
to get together and do for themselves."

for this new Bible stands alone there
is no other of its kind. Therefore,

Once upon a time, and not so leng ago either, -when a man wanted to
start a bank, Eli he had to do was to Iiang out a sign and do such busi
ness as he could get. This was the way the 'r.lisn goldsmiths did busi
ness. - - i
But things aren't so simple today. More and more the banker is sub
ject to governmental regulation. For banirs are so necessary to the wel
fare of the community and so full of possibilities for good or evil that
they are classed among the "public utilities" and subjected to govem
merital oversight. We still nav private unincorporated banks, but the
states are tending to put them under the same restrictions as the incor
porated hanks, and there are few of them which do a commercial banking
So in most cases, the man who wants to start a bank has to get a char
ter. Under the National law in a town of Brattleboro 's size thi3 means
that he must get at least four other persons to join with him, and be
tweea them they must subscribe for at least $100,000 of stock. This is
the minimum set by lew. Some capital would be necessary in any event,
for a bank like a grocery store has to have some money to start with. But
the law requires this money to be paid in in cash, not so much with, the
idea of giving the bank funds to do business with as to provide a re
serve fund from which depositors may be reimbursed if any of the bank's
investments turn out badly.
