Hill, the "Empire Builder", the "Father of the Northwest", cannot see why the business men of the country should at present fear to engage in new enterprises, nor can hesee any reason whatever for the semi-paralysis which is gradually creeping over the United States. "It's only a senseless lack of confidence," said Mr. Hill, in an interview just given out. "And why this lack of confi dence? Some man, somewhere, has grown timid over something or other, and has cried 'boo' at his neighbor. His neighbor prob ably jumped and the next fellow took fright without knowing why he was frightened. And so on. "It's just like a flock of sheep. If one starts to run, every sheep in the flock will follow, even if they die for it. "During this big National Con servation Congress we talked about conserving water and con serving land; conserving coal and conserving iron; it's too bad somebody didn't say a word about conserving common sense. "That's what this country needs right now—to conserve common sense. There's an ar ticle by Col. George Harvey in the September North American Review dealing with the Conser vation of Common Sense that well illustrates the business dition of this country right and gives as the panacea for the business paralysis, the sugges tion that our business men use a con now little conution sense—just ordin ary common sense. I wish busi ness men everywhere would take I can see no reason for the advice. ' fears which seem to possess our ; business men. I have preached a'return to the farm' policy for^od years and expect to continue to do so; but that's no reason for fear on the part of business. "Money and business are, of course, very careful and it is right that they should be, but not to the extent of cutting off their noses to spite their faces. Especially when it is so unneces sary and they need the noses, too. "Here's a little excerpt which, to my mind, bears down hard and strikes at the core of our present ills: " 'In the disestablisment of credit we find the most obvious cause of the prevailing depres sion. The link that connects labor with capital is not broken, but we may not deny that it. is less cohesive than it should be or than conditions warrant. Fi nancially, thecountry is stronger than ever before in its history. Recovery from a panic so severe as that of three years ago w as never before so prompt and com paratively complete. The mas ses are practically free from debt. Money is held by the banks in abundance and rates are low. a " 'Why then does Capital pause upon the threshold of invest ment? The answer we believe to be plain. It awaits adjustment of the relations of government to business. Such, at any rate, is the plea, and pressure is con stantly brought to bear upon executives and courts to make haste—haste which, in our judg ment, would result in less speed. Great complications growing out of mightily changed condi tions call for the most serious consideration. To settle a grave question offhand is only to invite disaster. Better not settle it at all until a reasonable certainty can be felt that it can be settled right. Stability is ever Capital's primary requirement. But the adjustment which it now de mands cannot be affected in a month or a year and never can or should be complet«. Elastic ity is the prime requisite of changes essential to develop ment. " 'But Capital is notoriously timid. In the present instance, too, it is absolutely foolish. No decision of any court can per manently impair any so-called vested interest. Confiscation is undreamed of, as compared with only a few years ago. The disin tegration of properties does not involve their destruction. More over, the sharp revolt against all combinations—those that achieve great good no less than those that work injury—is clearly yielding to study and reason. No sane person now maintains that business—especially manu facturing— canorsbould bedone as it wasdonebalf acenturyago. In a broad sense, the day of the , individual competitor is past, but the opportunity of the indi vidual remains even wider within the corporation. The sole prob lem consists of determining how government can maintain an even balance between aggrega Gons of interest, on theonehand, for^od the whole people, on the other, protecting the latter against extortion and saving the former from assaults. The solution is not easy to find for the simple reason that the situation is without prece dent. But is not progress being made along sane and cautious lines? Surely no menace to prop erty or to human rights lies in the striving for such a solution. Both will be safeguarded by its certain finding.' " U ( VP TO TAFT AGAIN After he had heard from Cali fornia; after the defeat of Hamer had been conveyed to him, and after the overwhelming victory of Poindexterin Washingtonhad been announced. President Taft concluded that he would give in surgent members of his party the same treatment in political appointments that he has given the standpatters, a privilege which had before that been with held from them as a punishment for their refusal longer to wear the collar of the "old time" po litical bosses who were all stand patters. Now that Tawney of Minne sota, that Tawney in whose in terests Taft made a speech in dorsing Cannon and declaring the new tariff law the. best the party could make, the Tawney for whom Roosevelt made an ad dress, Tawney the man spoken of as the probable successor to Cannon in case the standpatters won a majority of the republican congressmen—now- that Tawney has been swept to defeat by the same tide of republican insur gency, it is possible that Presi dent Taft will take another step and announce his determination to recoguize the insurgents as the controlling factors in the re publican party. As a purely political considera tion the party ought not to in vite defeat by alliance with the stand pat element. The people all over the country, in nearly every state, county and precinct, have already shown in no unmis takable terms that they endorse the progressive policies of the in surgent element. To go counter to that policy is to invite inevit able defeat. The opposition al ready made will have its effect probably in giving the democrats a majority of the next national congress. Its continuance would give them the next president, be cause the people o! the country are thinking and voting along progressive lines. The old order of things has passed.—Capital News. Geo. K.
