Yesterday's government crop figure, -which showed conditions of spring wheat in the country the worst In 1Q year, caunej a J wild wheat market this morning. I Opening prices showed advances of nearly three and a half cents. I Heavy realizing forced the prices back a cent -but the market continued ac tive anu exdteu. . i There is a law of interest, a rule of wages, a schedule of laud values aiM rentals, a law of taxation, but ISo law, oio rule governs the earning power of capital. A dollar is a dollar sans politics, sans creed. And yet one dollar may earn nothing niay dissi pate itsell Another may earn 5 percent, another may earn 20 percent, another gathers unto itself 100 percent. That depends wholly on the leverage exerted on the application of power, on the fulcrum, on the weight to he moved. Men of wealth make large sums not so much because they exercise monopolistic opportunities, as because they feel they can afford to try out plans attempt big things. For every "big fellow" there are 900 "little fellows." In other words, the people classed as wealthy in this coun try number 100,000; the earners number the other 89,900,000. . . The "little fellow" is the one who hasn't sufficient surplus to exercise at customary rates so that he can af ford to retire. And yet the little fellows in the aggregate are more powerful than the isolated big fellows. Luck decided fortune for some but for everyone who got his through sheer good fortune, a thousand got theirs through daring. . y Maybe you feel dismclhred to trust your fellow-men, but don't go back on fact. The "community of interests" plan built up the Steel Corporationrand every other big industrial combine. The commimity of interests, spread among many among the little fellows will achieve still greater results. The corporation opens the way for cooperation where men and women arelooked upon as units as dol lars. Operated hosestly asd with wisdom, the corporation can accomplish lefinite, fixed, certain results. In view of these truths we come to you asking your cooperation.
