Washington, Nov. 30.—The abdi
cation of Mr. McAdoo is almost as
startling as that of the Kaiser, and
much less expected. Outside the pres
ident, Mr. McAdoo has been the most i
influential man in the American gov
ernment. Friends and foes alike wil
lingly admit that "McAdoo is a won
der." The president undoubtedly
was right when he wrote in his letter
accepting the resignation, that Mr.
McAdoo was the greatest secretary of
treasury in history. On the fact of
the correspondence, and for the infor
mation of the public, Mr. McAdoo
gave up his place In Washington in
order to "recoup his personal for
tunes." When a man has the the
strings to pull that will haul down a
hundred thousand dollars a year as
against a salary of ten thousand for
looking after the biggest administra
tive Job in Washington, it is not
strange that in his grandfather days,
coupled with the possession of a
beautiful and wonderful young wife
and a comparatively new baby, that
the mind should turn to the problem
of laying by nest eggs as against the
days of "sans eyes, sans teeth," etc.
Mr. McAdoo undoubtedly quit for the
very reasons that he gave—and If It
had not been for the "other reasons"
It Is likely that the original "reasons"
might not have resulted In this sensa
tiodhl exit from political life.
A good deal of newspaper discus
sion and speculation has taken place
since Mr. McAdoo resigned, and one
paper that has called the turn on
events time and again, declares that
Mr. McAdoo has never been a public
ownership man, and that his views
have "brought him into continuous
and acrimonious discussion with Mr.
Wilson and some of his fellow-cabinet
members on the subject of the future
At least two other
of the railroads.'
members of the cabinet are In the
frame of mind as that credited
to Mr. McAdoo, and men within ad
ministration circles believe that in
this attitude the insurgents are sup
ported by Colonel House, whom the
political gossipers insist reached the
parting of the ways with Mr. Burle
son several months ago.
This last bit of Information is al
most equal in political imptv'.ance to
the McAdoo resignation, so far as It
affects the issue of politics surround
ing government ownership, for Colo
nel House "made Burleson," In the
common expression of Washington.
Congress Will Resume Its Functions.
As straws show which way the wind
blows, the Washington political gos
sip, which 1; unquestionably correct,
shows that the democratic party is
not going to surrender itself to the
championship of the socialistic doc
trines of Mr. Burleson and some oth
er political leaders, without a big
fight. Government operation of the
railroada, wire lines, etc., has been
Justified as war measures, and they
were accepted by congresa without
much protest. But congress is likely

to assume the responsibility of pass
ing upon these issues as a matter of
permanent policy, and if there is half
the "pride in reconstruction" that is
indicating itself on the surface, the
legislative branch of the government
will determine the fate of the rail
roads, wire lines, etc., in its Own
way. irrespective of the cabinet, or
perhaps even the president, if the lat
ter chooses to take a hand. Congress
is pretty near the point of hoisting
the red flag against the method of
"cabinet legislation," that has been
sent up to the Hill for Okeh.
The probability that Colonel
House, Mr. McAdoo, and some of the
cabinet members oppose government
ownership, shows that the democratic
party is not likely to become commit
ted in its entirety to government
ownership. On the other side of the
political arena stands the republican
organization, made up almost entirely
of opponents of government owner
The great economic and industrial
Issues involved In government own
ership do not lend themselves readily
to partisan political Juggling, and
when men like Mr. McAdoo qujt there
are grounds to believe that the dem

new doctrine, hook, sinker and bob
ber, without a pretty careful amouni
of investigation of the bait.
In providing work for discharged
soldiers and sailors and munition
workers, road building offers a solu
tion of many problems. The United
States as a whole is behind most for
eign countries in the matter of good
highways. Poor roads are a reason
for high prices of farm produce in
many eases. They are a reason why
more automobiles are not purchased
and used. They are a reason for
heavy upkeep cost of vehicles of all
kinds. They are a cause for many
accidents. They are a hindrance to
suburban and country development;
a cause of low prices of real estate in
country sections; a reason, in short,
for slower development of national
Industry and production than should
be expected of a country as progress
ive as ours claims to be.

U. 8. MUHT SUPPLY EUROPE
WITH CATTLE AND HOGH
Ogden, Nov. 30.—Belief that a
lively demand for hogs, cattle and
sheep—and particularly for hogs—
will continue is expressed by live
stock men and meat packers,
belief is substantiated by the reports
from all parts of America and from
Europe, the latter showing that there
has been such a decrease in the num
ber of domestic animals of all kinds
that the farms, ranches and ranges
of the United States must be depend
ed upon for more than a year to sup- j
ply this deficiency.
Farmers of Europe will be unable j
to build up their herds and flocks dur- ;
ing the coming year to anywhere near j
normal conditions. Even with no r -j
mal conditions, Europe was importing j
large quantities of meat frtjm Amer-|
tea. This makeB it apparent that, as j
Europe will demand a greater meat I a
supply, the year 1919-20 will not see ,
the time that meats are not In great]
that there will be a splendid market [
Demand for meats means
With the end in view of assuring I
the greatest production of hogs, meat |
packers have agreed upon a plan for I
stabilizing of the price, this plan be- i
lng approved by the United States j
Food Administration. The result is
that the livestock men are assured
continued high prices, while they are j
also assured lower cost of produc- j
tlon, through the fact that, with food
rules applying to grain entirely re-|
voked, there will be more opportun!- 1
ty to feed and fatten hogs, cattle and j
sheep. Premature marketing of hogs j
bringing a flood of business that j,
could not be handled by packing
houses might endanger this plan ofj
buying at a stabilized price, but it la
the belief that the very fact of sta- j
billty will assure the livestock raisers |
of the intermountain country that;
they ought to hold their stock until I
it is thoroughly fattened and thus j
gain the extra profit coming from the |
feeding of their hogs.
