JUICIES I PLUM HANDED ROADS (Continued from Page One) under unified control than under the control of many separate companies, that the additional facilities which are so greatly needed could now be provided more easily and more eco nomically by public than by private capital, and that disturbances result- ! ing from both rate Increase! and labor difficulties could be reduced to a minimum if the government re tained direct responsibility for the . roads. j Labor Should Have Voice "It was also my hope and belief, if federal control wen continued, for a rosonablc period, that it could gradually be developed, in the light of experience and by genuinely Con structive measures, into a system of administration which would preserve the manifest advantage! of unified operation and direct governmental responsibility for the transportation system, avoid the dangers which arc presumed to inhere in governmental operation by providing a manage ment remote from political influ ences and free from undue ccntralia tion, and enlist the cooperation of labor by recognizing its just claim to some voice in the management." Despite the views he had ex pressed. Commissioner Eastman said be regarded it as the plain duty of the commission to do everything pos sible to make the plan of operation adopted by Congress a success. Service is Chief Point "Viewing the matter in this light," said he, "1 am impelled to the conclu sion that under existing conditions liberality in estimating revenue needs of the carriers is desirable. Poor service is crippling our industries, curtailing production, and raising prices. As between high rates and pool- service, the former is the lesser evil." The views of Commissioners East man and Woolley aroused the ire of Commissioner McChord, who object ed to the "injection into the case of large political questions of govern mental policy.'' He insisted that in fixing the value of the roads the commission was in no sense making a final decision, and he pointed to the language of the decision to sup port his contention, that the value was "for the purposes of this parti cular case" and was in no sense binding on the commission. Figures That Stagger Briefly summaried, the decision provides as follows: $1,283,300,000 from increase on freight rates. $233,800,000 from increase on pas senger fares. $43,600,000 from increase on Pull man charges. $4,500,000 from increases on milk rates. $1,400,000 from increase excess baggage charges. Eastern roads receive approximate ly $873,030,000 more per year; Western roads, $559,483,000; South ern roads, 1136,298,000. Per capita tax on increased freight charges alone is $12 per year for every man, woman and child in the country. Former Director General llines says this will be multiplied by five when shipments reach the ulti mate consumer. This would mean an additional burden of $300 per year for every family of five in the Unit ed States, or a grand total of $7,500, --000,000 added to the increased cost of living by the Cummins-Esch bill. Freight rates are advanced one third, passenger and milk rates one fifth, Pullman charges one-half. Freight rates advanced in the Fast 40 per cent; in South, 25 per cent; in West, 35 per cent; in Rocky Mountain-Pacific territory, 26 per cent. Given More Than Asked The increase in passenger, Pull man, milk and excess baggage rates were exactly those asked by the roads. Freight increase requested were 3!).75 for the Eastern roads 32.03 for the Western roads, and 38.91 for the Southern roads. It will be noted that the Eastern and West ern roads received more than they sought, while the Southern roads re ceived approximately 14 per cent less 1 than they had requested. The Com mission said the financial condition of Southern carriers was more fa-1 vorable than that of the lines in either of the other groups, hence was not in need of so large an increase. The standard return paid the rail- I road owners by the government has ; been at the rate of $75,000,000 a ; month, or $893,000,000 per year, a rental which Senator Cummins de clared to be so high as "to shock the j moral senses." Now the roads will I receive almost double this amount. 1 It is stipulated that one-half of one per cent of the purchase of addi tional equipment. This it is esti | mated will amount to $94,000,000 per year. Railroad managers, owners and bankers are highly elated with the rate decision. The public will ren der its judgment when the increased ' freight rates are applied. Thinks Eight Hours Enough Mr. H. N. Skinner of the Skinner Jewelry Co. believes eight hours long enough to Work and thinks all stores, banks and other business houses can get by and still open at B a. m. and close at (i p. in. There is no good reason why any concern, mercantile or otherwise should run more than 8 hours in one shift. It's a waste of time, labor and wears out the human machine when it is compelled to work long hours. Mr. Skinner is right.

But no one will be arrested until "personal responsibility" is fixed. Howard E. Figg, special assistant to the attorney genedal in charge of the enforcement of the Lever act against profiteering, has exposed the profiteering plot, lie says manufac turers and jobbers of wearing ap parel are attempting through care fully planned propaganda, "to stam pede retailers and the public into re newed fictitious demand" for cloth ing and thereby force prices higher. The federal official says the Depart ment of Justice has all the evidence and is full acquainted with the meth ods of these profiteers "and it only remains to fix personal resposibility before applying the criminal provi sions of the law." ••Manufacturers and jobbers are even going to the length of guaran teeing the retail trade against a de clining market." lie said. "These guarantees are being given very generally and seemingly in further ance of a concerted plan, despite the wording of the Lever law fixing severe penalties for conspiracy to exact excessive prices for any nec essaries. "The closing of mills is being used in the price propaganda," said Mr. Figg. "The retailer is then being threatened with further curtailment and higher prices if he does not ac cept goods and order on the present market." Judge Dayton Is Dead; His Rule Helps Antis PHILIPPI, W. Va., Aug. 7.—Fed eral Judge Dayton of the Northern District of West Virginia is dead. During his judgship, deceased at tracted wide attention because of his labor injunctions, among the more prominent being the Hitehman case. This decision is now being used by anti-union employers who can call on courts to enforce a contract in which a worker surrenders his lawful right to join a labor organization as the price of securing employment. The Hitehman Coal and Coke Company of this state forced its em ployes to sign a contract that they would not join a union while in the employ of the company. When representatives of the United Mine Workers discussed unionism with some of these employes, the union ists were enjoined by Judge Day ton. The circuit court of appeals at Richmond reversed this injunction but it was upheld by the United States Supreme Court by a vote of six to three. The dissenters were Justices Brandeis, Holmes and Clarke. These justices said: "If it is coercion to threaten to strike unless plaintiff (the com pany) consents to a closed union shop, it is coercion also to threaten not to give one employment unless the applicant will consent to a closed non-union shop." The minority held that a discus sion of trade unionism between or ganized workers and Hitehman em ployes did not constitute a breach of contract. There would be no breach, it was stated, "until the em ployes both joined the union and failed to withdraw from plaintiffs employ." Salvation Army and The Paper Shortage With the shortage of news print paper becoming so acute that news papers throughout the country are compelled to refuse columns of ad vertising each day and also to elimi nate many of their features, the Sal vation Army through its Industrial Homes, is making a strenuous effort to turn back to the paper mills more j waste even than it has done in the ! past. The Salvation Army annually sal vages one million pounds of waste paper. According to one newspaper publisher, the amount of salvaged paper sent by the Army to the mills last year would have printed one ed ition of newspapers having a com bined circulation of 1,250,000,000 copies, or would have sunplied for one year a newspaper with an an nual circulation of 3,424,657 copies. In effecting this savings, the Sal vation Army has not only helped the publishers, but it has accom plished a saving for humanity by putting thousands of "derelicts" back on their feet again and started them on the road to success, where instead of being tax consumers they have become tax payers and a credit to the community in which they live. , The Salvation Army through its : twelve rescue and maternity homes West of the Mississippi River last year cared for 1,088 unfortunate girls and 1,058 babies, the majority, of these mothers being under six teen years of age. LA FOLLETTE ARRAIGNS THE REPS. AND DEMS. Senator La Follette makes his first public declaration since the Repub lican convention in Chicago in a signed editorial which appeals in the July issue of La Toilette's Magazine, published at Maadison, Wis. Under the caption, "The Old Parties Have Failed, the Senator pays his respect to the Republican and Democratic platforms. He says neither of the old parties "can be expected to change the system," by which "the few have acquired the earnings of the many." The following ercerpts from his editorial are herewith reproduced: "Neither of these parties for years has willingly admitted a new or pro gressive idea into the policies of the national Government, They have shamefully deceived and ruthlessly betrayed the voters who have given them power. Having no other pur pose than to protect the monopoly powers of the great financial inter ests which are their masters, they have joined in permitting the merci less exploitation of the pepole and are lapidly converting the freest and most beneficent Government of the World into a tyrannical despotism. "The ( rime of l!»2(l" "Acting in vicious accord, dic tated by their financial masters through the greatest lobby ever as sembled in Washington, the Demo cratic and Republican parties joined in the enactment of the infamous Fsch-Cummins Railroad bill — the crime of 1920—which has paralyzed transportation, stagnated industry, demoralized credit, and thrown hun dreds of thousands of workers out of employment. "Under their joint sanction profi teering has flourished and notorious profiteers have gone unpunished, while the laws intended to protect the people from outrageous increases in the cost of living have been turned into instruments of oppression and persecution against those seeking in lawful manner to better their work ing and living conditions. Trusts Arc in Control "The great trusts which control the markets for agricultural products fix prices so low to the farmer as to allow him at best only a hard-earned existence, while the prices of the same products to the consumer are so high as to compel him to limit his purchases to the barest necessities. Thus the producer and consumer are robbed and commerce and industry are paralyzed. "The Beef Trust, the Grain and Milling Trust, the Coal Trust, the' Steel Trust, the Oil Trust, the Cop per Trust, the Lumber Trust, the water-power monopolies now form ing, the transportation oligarchy and thousands of lesser combinations have seized upon the exigencies of the war to increase immeasurably their wealth and their control over the lives of the people. Self-Government in Peril "War has merely preeipated the in evitable crisis. It has hastened the day when the people must enter upon the supreme struggle to recover their civil liberties and economic freedom, or else admit their defeat and con fess that our experiment in self government has failed. "The best blood of the country was spent without stint to win the war, while the great fortunes of the country were not only protected to the last dollar, but were increased beyond what the avarice of man had therefore deemed possible. "It is the deliberate and announc ed intention of both the Democratic and Republican parties to mortgage the earnings of labor and industry of this and many future generations to pay this debt. Had we adopted the policy of conscripting wealth as we did men there would have been no enormous bond issues, no cur rency inflation and no unconscion able profiteering. People Losing Faith "In vain millions of people at re cent Presidential elections have shift ed their votes from one party to the other and back again, ever hoping that a change of administration would bring a change of conditions. This political disillusionment carries with it a terrible menace to the safe ty of the nation. Betrayed and de ceived, the people in ever-increasing numbers have lost faith in political action. Thus reactionary control, in its blindness and avarice, is leading the nation toward revolution and an archy. "Although the war has been over for almost two years, hundreds of citizens are still in prison, or under indictment, for no other offense than the expression of opinions. Admin istrative officers have been allowed ,to exercise autocratic and illegal powers over the mails, rifling at pleasure the letters of private citi zens ami permitting or suppressing publications as they might desire. "All these repressive laws are still on the statute books, and while the j exigencies of a political campaign may make it desirable to suspend temporarily their enforcement, it is the policy of both the old parties, as shown by the bills their leaders have introduced and supported in the last Congress, to continue the substance of these laws as a part of the per manent peace-time policy of the Gov ernment." What Increased Railroad Rates Will Do To Us All The following opinions of two of the most noted economists in the United States do not give hope of much further decrease in prices: | Washington, Aug. 4.—Any appre ciable increase in the cost of living following the rise in railroad rates will be due to deliberate profiteering and not a legitimate consequence of the rate boost, W. Jett Lauck, eco nomist representing railroad labor organizations, declared here today. I.auek asserted that the public need not fear that food and clothing will go up in price unless the freight rate , increases are multiplied by four or : five when passed on to the consumer. "The great industries of this coun try," said Lauck, "could well afford tfl deduct from the price of their products this freight rate increase. "On flour the increased cost at Philadelphia would be about 33 cents a barrel. On a suit of clothes made Store Opens 0 £ nt, Oases A p. nr, Daily, Including Saturday Stone-Fisher Co.

He forecasted an increase of 75 cents to $1.35 a ton on coal. The freight rate increases granted the railways by the interstate com merce commission "may precipitate a revelry of high prices and high wages," according to Clifford Thorne, prominent attorney and transporta tion authority. "One very far reaching result of the decision may be economic," Thorne said. "It will probably stop the movement recently inaugurated for reducing the prices of the neces sities of life. It is possible the de cision may precipitate a revelry of high prices and high wages. This, however, will not apply to grain and livestock, as they are so thoroughly dependent upon world conditions." The Angora industry in South Af rica is at present worth $5,000,000 per year for its mohair alone. A strike of electrical workers em ployed by the Pacific Telephone and Telegraph company in Nevada, Cali fornia, Oregon, Washington and Idaho went into effect. The em ployees demand an increase of $1 a day in wages. Whenever you hear a particularly painful squawk against the Nonpar tisan League you can make up your mind that the farmers have given the gang a hard wallop somewhere. UNFAIR LIST BARBER SHOPS I. H.
