If these cost about $:,w aidoco this
would mean an outlay of about $500,
CO0.O00. The automo'olle industry hus
already nsHtimed a position of first Im
portance, giving profitable employ-

automobile Is generally nn unproduc
tive machine) and ohleny a source of
amuscineut. the auto-trucK not yet
h.'vlng como Into common use. Tho
most Important thing nbout the auto
mobile Is tho cost of running. It lt
safe to assumo that the average cost
of 1 tinning n car, Including repairs',
depreciation, chauffeurs, special cloth
ing, entettalnment, etc, Is not less
than $1,000 per year. ThU means that
the people of the ITnlteil States are
spending approximately $500,000,000 a
year In one form of amusement nlone.

Many owners, ns Is well known, have
borowed heavily to Invest In n nuto-
cir. The net result Is that owners of
automobiles as a class tiave neces
wrlly spont less In other dlreotlons,
Mid have saved much less than they
wi uld otherwise have none. In olther
case the effect 's moro or lose detri
mental to other Unes ot trade. The
In palrmont of savings Is perhaps the
most seilous factor, since the new sup
ply of capital comes nnty from savings.
And If thoso be restricted ih follow b
that capital for developing new outer
prises is not growing so fast as It
otherwise would. This Is nn olemen:
if somo consequence In tho Invest
ment bttuatlon. Of course, these re
ntal kB do pot apply to those nbund
eutly able to own automobiles, nnd of
this class there U surprisingly large
numbor In the United States. After
all has been said tho automobile tills
a useful and Important place in our
srcbil and economic makeup. It has
mormons pleasure. The objections
against It are only thoso of extiavn
ganco or Individual ubdt.

AMM ANN'S
Wo thank our friends nnd
patrons for tho iiroporous year
no luito Jn-t bad and ixUh
j on fine nnd nil a Happy Now
year.
AS TO TUB FUTimrc.
A few words un to the funiro. From
the economic standpoint the outlook
l sllghty better than a year ago. Trade
condition are sound. Uquldntlon has
been thorough. There is lUtlo or no
Lverproduetlon. Stocks of merchnndlso
nro jjenerally light. Credit 13 sound.
Commodity prices are. still high but
often declining. L.abor Is generally
well employed and getting good wugos.
Theso aro favorable ractots. Tho un
favorable am the unrest of labor mid
tho prospect of fresh strikes next year,
especially In the coal trado. From the
political standpoint the outlook is far
from encouraging. This Is a presi
dential year. As nlroacy shown thoro
Is much social and jioiltlenl unrost.
ftadlcal tendencies are running strong,
and while parties nre maneuvering for
public favor all sorts of errntlo and
threatening proposals' aro Immlnont.
Undoubtedly thero will po moro talk
than action. Under such conditions
capital Is nocessuill). umld nnd now
enterprise will be checked until tho
final outcome can be mirly giiosscd.
We thus have a conflict lietweon poli
tical conditions. In tlmo tho economic
will prevail, but In t,he Interim tho po
litical may rule, whlcn means a cau
tious but hopeful policy for Mil. Thoso
opinions nte bused on tho assumption
ct International peace, though It must
1 o admitted the foreign Bltuutlon con
tains seeds or troubl, mfl tho unex
pected may happen witness tho nar
low escape from a oolHson between
Inland and Qerniany last summor.
