OUR TWO AUTOCRACIES.
Under present circumstances Senator Freling
huysen's characterization of labor unionism as a
"new autocracy" tending toward Bolshevism can
hardly fail to impress many even of. those who
were entirely in sympathy with organized labor
and its weapon, the strike. Organized labor to
day, with its insatiable demands and its domin
ance of the mdustnal situation, may with quite
„ . , , . ,
sufficient accuracy be termed an autocracy exult
mg and overbearing in its power. It> is too soon
to forget, however, that this new autocracy W r as
called into being by an old autocracy, that of cap-;
ital—an old autocracy now much weakened throu
gh government trust-busting but still
and determined. Paraphrasing the words of Mer
cutio, the suffering public may well cry a plague
on both vour autocracies »
on ootn you aut C acies.
The public has a right to demand concession
and compromise from both these autocracies that
have just faced each other in battle array in the
Industrial Conference, and the President spoke in
. 1L . . ' , ... , ,
I the name of this right of the public when from
his sick bed he earnestly asked that there be no
adjournment until both parties had exhausted
resourcefulness and patience in an effort to come
to some common agreement." In part the Presi
. . _ _
dent wrote further: "Must suspicion and hatred
and force rule us in civil life? Are our industrial
, eaders and Qur industria , workers to live togeth-!
er without faith in each other, constantly strug
gling for advantage over each, doing naught but
what is compelled ?" The President intimated that
both labor and capital are arrogant, which is true,
and that both must yield in some measure ; other
wise it will be necessary to "confess that there
is no method to be found for carrying on indus
try except in the spirit and with the very method;
of war "
What was the answer to this solemn and time-:
ly exhortation from the head of the nation on his
sick bed ? On the night of October 22, in spite
of the President's appeal, labor withdrew from
the National Industrial Conference after failing
to secure agreement to one of its demands, while
capital elected to regain in the conference to-;
^ ether with the assembled representatives of the
general public. Intoxicated by its comparatively!
new power, labor recklessly followed its arro
^ ance and its anger into a bolt - Ca P ital > on the
other hand ' determined but cautious, aware of the
danger of public disapproval as well as chastened
by past experiences including government regula
fion, wisely remained in its seats. To the reflec
ting and unprejudiced observer it is quite clear
that labor is also in need of government regula
tion. The new autocracy would receive much ben
efit from a similar chastening to that which was
visited upon the old.

NOW FOR SOBRIETY.
We have reached the beginning of the end of
j the joy-riding period, and a return to the ways of
sober sense is before us.
When the time comes for inflation to subside,
the first break comes in the speculative market in
The easy mpney period having come
to an end, interest rates increase, and gamblers in
stocks find it hard almost to the point of impossi
ble to borrow cash to protect their margins and
extend their operations. When they cannot get
money, the market becomes uncertain, and then
prices begin to fall. The gamblers' margins are
wiped out, and their brokers sell their stocks im
mediately. Then follows a panicky rush to un
load, and prices of even the best securities go
During the past few days, Wall Street has been
experiencing just such shocks, due to the unmis
takable signs that the period of inflation is about
over, and that from now on we must deal in real
ities and not in golden dreams. Fictitious values
1 must go.
The rest of the country need not be seriously
concerned over the shaking out of the specula
tors. Honest business will not be injured. The!
manufacturing and producing agencies of thej
country are so far behind with orders, and necsi-'
ties are still so scarce, that we are bound to have
a considerable period of sound prosperity, always
barring the possibility that someone may rock the
boat. Banks that will no longer lend for specula
tion will still take care of the needs of legitimate
Though there is no occasion for alarm, we may
still read in the signs of the times a warning to all
to^ proceed with commonsense and bid farewell to
financial joy-riding. Hard work and political con
servatism are very much in order.—Hattiesburg
