From the Pittsburgh Gazette-Timer.
An unqualified statement that the
administration ba? drafted a bill do
signed to bring abcut Federal control
and operation of tt c roal and iron
mines strengthens Msg suspicion that
the government pfms to establish (
state socialism by subterfuge. Federal (
control of the railr sads. for the dura- j
lion of the war. is Justifiable on the
ground that the government can do
necessary things which are impossible
of accomplishment under private management.
The care cf the mines is entirely
different. Sta Istics and the tes-:
timony of the Fuel Administration establish
that private management of '
mines is productive of the best possi?

ble results. As to com. w nave dcch .

substantiates the statements, that
the mines are producing more coal J
than can be transported and can pro-1
duce all that could he used, while basic j
prices for the product fixed by the
government guarantee everything in !
protection of consumers that is possi-,
ble at that point. As for iron ore. the :

What more the government can do in
the production of cal and iron ore !
than private companies did last year j
is beyond the comprehension of ordi-1
nary intelligence.
The project of government control ;
and operation of fundamental industries
where unnecet rary is inconsistent
with the presidential declaration
concerning railroad seizure which, ir
the language wa; not deliberately
framed to conceal an intention not expressed.
can be construed only as a
promise that Federal control is to be
temporary. There should be unequivocal
statements covering this
point. Because the situation as it is
developing admits, of varying conceptions

What People Say

E. M. Grant, one of the board of iirot-tors
of ilie West Virginia Gas 1
'onseniors' Association, introduced 1 j
hill into the legislature as early as j
St'D wii: h provided for the appoint- . |
cent of a gas commissioner and was! j
Ictiiatod to conserve gas. eliminate j j
. : and control its distribution. O. , ,

n iiir. remarks at the convention in
".eritsbitrg Friday. and regretted
the indifference" on the people sen rally
at that time, adding:
"I was indifferent myself. I
was not much interested. We
had pienl? of gas at home and I
could see no necessity for activity
in that line."
Mr. Grant deplore# the lack of ine:
on Die part of the public gentraily
at that time and recalls that
ibout ail activity he encountered
va-: e: cted against the measure. He
aid Friday night:
You should have seen the
htib-btib created when I introdu
i"*(i the hill; gor teieaxams trom ,
as far distant as Mt. Clemens.
Mich., to hold tip the measure ,
but that advice was unnecessary. (
The corporations controlled sufficient
votes to do that."
Senator Scott C. Lowe of Fairmont, j
Icserves a word of credit for his enrgctic
v. ark along this line in recent 1
tensions of the legislature. Ke says ]
; was discouraging though:
"Do you ltnow I could not get
an en do:' eruer.t of my position

home? The people were either ;
too indifferent or two careless to J
even go on record in letters as J
being desirous to protest what J

Government Does Not Want
Them to be Used As
Secretary McAdoo today authorized
the following statement:
"It has been bro.icht to my attentiou
that number-) ot merchants
throughout the country are offering to
take Liberty Loan r lends of the first
and second issue at par, or even in
some cases at a premium, in exchange
for merchandise. >Vbile I have no J^H
doubt that these merchants are acuatcd
by patriotic motives, I am sure that
tliey have failed to consider the effect
which the acceptance of their offers

are making the strongest effort to have
these government b.-nds purchased tor
permanent investmc et by the people
a: large, to be paid tor out ot the past
or future savings o? those who buy
them. Purchases tnus made not only fl
result in providing funds for the uses V fl
of the government, bu?. they also f v.
a conservation of labor and matferiatr
When the bonds aie exchanged for A
merchandise, it defeats the primary
object of their sa'e. it discourages
thrift and increases expenditures, thus
depriving the government of labor and
material needed for war purposes. In
addition to this, such bonds when taken
in exchange for merchandise most
in most esses be immediately sold in
the open market. Tills naturally tends
to depress the marSol price of the issue
and makes it le.-ts easy to sell foture
issues at the same rate.
"i hope that tiia merchants of the
country, upon a me? e careful consid- % 1
oration of this subject, will discontinue
their efforts to sctl merchandise and
take Liberty Bonds m payment."
