The coun try merchant has come to accept oil this point the sophistical,dis ingenuous and dishonest argue ments of the express lobby, skill fully put out through agencies whose deal purpose is concealed. The arguement that cheap transportation of parcels will injure the country towns is ex actly as reasonable as the con tention that London and New York, Hamberg and Liverpool, Seattle and Sidney, must be in jured by the railways and steam ships which, bringing all parts of the world into close and easy communication, would make it impossible for great and denomi nating centers of population, commerce, and industry to exist. Everybody can see how absurd such an argument would be. I The best possible transporta s turn facilities constitute the first requisite to making a great city. Commercial centers are prosper ous ana important in propor tion as they have adequate, effi cient and cheap transportation. This is as true of the country town with a single railroad line as it is of a continent's metropo j lis with half a hundred great railroad systems pouring their tonnage into its terminals and with the ships of all the seven seas unloadinh their cargoes at its wharves. It is an axiom that good,amp le, and cheap transportation actually makes commerce. The 'country town which has no rail road always wants one. The hamlet which has no post office is forever riding the neck of its congressman until it gets one. Great cities vote millions to build artificial harbors, to pro vide free wharfage, and to in crease every possible facility for cheap and rapid transportation. There are no communities that need improvement of transpor tation so much as the country towns which have been misled into opposing the parcels post. The country merchant has been made to belisve that the parcels past would take his business away from him and give it to the mail-order house in the great city. It would do nothing of the kind. On the contrary, it would give the country merchant the one facility which he does not have now; it would piace him on a parity with the merchant in the great city. yuick, cheap transportation would enable him to buy better and cheaper. He could sell many articles from catalogue instead I of having to carry them in stock I He could create a mail-order bus iness of his own in his surround ing territory. The local mer chant who condncts his business well has nothing to fear from the mail-order house, Farmers and citizens preler dealing with the home man, and the parcels post will give him many advan tages that will enable him to in crease his trade to proportions which are now impossible. Of course, this does not apply to the country merchant who buys his goods badly or at high prices, and who gives long credits and sells at long prices, post or not, his day is doomed. J More alert men, with better bus iness ideas, will soon occupy his place. The alert, hustling mer chant will use the parcels post so effectively that the old sleepy head's day will end just that much sooner.
