EL PASO HERALD EDITORIAL and MAGAZINE PAGE THE VOTERS WILL BE PUT IN POSSESSION OF THE FACTS NOW rjAVIHG elaisted an the cteeSt for running, and winning, a the war, the Democratic party cannot fairly evade re sponsibility for the awfal extravagance that marked the conduct of the Washington government daring the tear. It 13 the habit of the administration supporters ts decry any :nuasm or rut goTKsaeara expenditures ana meat poaey. 'What doei tt matter, we won the war didn't we?" is the ommon retort, and any person who had a word to say luring the war about wasteful management wag pro-der-nan, while any person who reminds the country, now of hat was done by the aotBiafatration is denooseed by the ldnunistration at an unpatriotic partisan, a sorehead tax iodger, a man without vision. "What does it matter, we on the war didst wej" Part of the Bepublican campaign work the next fear months win consist in endeavoring to get the facts before the voters. The Democratic administration has net been wanting is facilities for its own propaganda, since a con gressional iaeestigatjea has disclosed that there are M6 different banana doing press agent work at the cost of me Taxpayers, tau ose- Bui oeiag zoo,ooo a year. One little item having to do with the war department's activities under secretary Baker is of interest to anyone who will take the tronbie to read ft. There were in the war army at the peak stage, 391,000 horses and moles; the war department pujceace (lax we en tie 391,000 animals), '45,000 saddles and lfiMfiOO sets of doable harness, suffi cient for 2&00JO00 animate. For the 391,000 animals in the army, the war depart ment bought 1,W7,197 hone brushes, 2,029,418 nose feed bags, 1,148,56 hone covers, 2,&5V853 halters. To brand the 391,000 animate, the war department bought 195,000 branding ireas, one iron for every pair of animals. The contract required that the branding "irons" should be made of copper, which was scarce and costly. The congressional Investigation shows that the .contractors bought 79,953 pounds of copper, or 34000 pounds more than was seeded to make the branding "irons," and offlnsli ot the contractiBg company say they pall 394 cents a pound 'or the copper (this is interesting to the Arizona copper producers who were holding down the price to pre-war levels). The system adopted by the war department of paying tor ail contracts on the basis of "coat plus 10 percent' in duced every kind of reckless extravagance and private rob bery under the cover of necessity. It became the interest of contractors to run up the "cost" to the highest possible tigure since they received their 10 percent on tee tout re gardless of the necessity or wisdom of the expenditirre. This system ran up the price of labor and material to un heard of figures, bat nobody seemed to care. "What did it matter? we won the wax diiat we?" aviation program, tot not a single American bunt fighting plane, reached the front before the armistice. And so the story goes on, with ordnance, ammunition, and every other branch of army preparation and supply. "What does it matter, we won the. war didn't we?"

The congressional committee declares that 40 to 60 per cent of the $1,200,000,000 spent on camps and cantonments was wasted. A powder phut was built at Kitro, W. Va, at a cost of SdAOOOjOOO bat it sever produced a pound of powder for the war. The plant and HOfiOOfiOO worth of stored prop erty on the promises were sold after the armistice for W5i,ooo, mostly on deferred payments. The war department paid the Hercules Powder company u,2S3,ooo ror operating ue anxo plant, Bat no powoer was produced for the war. The war department spent nearly $3,000,000 furnishing electric machinery and building electric lines for the Vir ginia Power company at Kitro, built a first class system and gave the company virtually a monopoly of the Kanawha valley, bat after the armistice the war depart ment settled with the company for $61,000, and in addition gave the company a long time contract to furnish power for a naval armor plant at Charleston, W. Va. A powder plant at HaahviO was built at a cost of $90,000,000, but so powder was produced for the war. For nitrate plants ?UtyWM0 was spent, most of it in Alabama, but not a pound of nitrate was produced for the war. The president aathotited the expenditure of $12,000,000 on a dam that had bees disapproved by previous administrations and his own advisers, hut sow the admin istration asks J130,000 more to complete the dam (at a total cost five tftaea the cost of the Elephant Butte dam). The war department spent over SlfiOOJOOOflOO on the IN THE SAYS when trade consisted in barter, hard and fast economic laws determined how, what, and when a buyer bought. Today people buy everything they take a notion to. If they haven't the cash is hand they borrow, or buy on credit. The three principles of haying are: Buy wnat is needed; bay the best to be had for the money; buy cooperatively so far as possible. By the last is meant: buy is your own heme town if you can buy what you want at a price that is fair, and as next choice, bay from your nearest neighbor city. The other day a speaker before the Salesmanship dub told of a salesman who went out into 1 Paso's territory and overloaded his customers because they were easy buyers. He sold them, for example, a lot of a certain kind of soap, though in a tows so small as that is which the customer lived so much soap could not be retailed in five years. One customer went into bankruptcy as a result ot sis unskilful buying. Utters became bad from a credit standpoint. In the end the salesman and his house and other salesmen and other houses lost. Had this salesman taight his customers how to buy so they could have dis posed of their goods and kept stocks moving and so they could have taken care of their accounts, the. salesman, the house, the small merchant and his bankers would all be better off today. Credit must be kept at its best If the retarkr knew how to buy from the jobber, and if the public knew how to osy rrom me retailer, crecat wonM improve and pubnc confidence would increase. Shrewdness and cleverness will sell almost anything. But is order to sake goods stay soli, and in order to pro mote future trade, the, goods must meet the personal need of the individuals who ultimately hny them. ?.rjj" r t -'c' --- i r' , , nubai v - m " - -r " si ah v J. j v-'v -v s j rj viA.xy.ir -w - rj vi?iw 2 -r- ..- i i -- rj?r- rr -ZcZZrrZZ&rZvZ,..

In riding to various parts ot the city on different ears. I cant remember being compelled to wait more than two er three minutes for any one of them.

Of the ottlea even have 1Q cant fares and these. probably will be quite usual before long. I don't know bow ja Paso manages to maintain adequate service on & cent fares, when these ether dtles can't, but I surely hope ah will continue to do so."
