GETTING WILDLY EXTRAVAGANT The American people are becoming extravagant. are ning amuck" in the matter of "frenzied finance" and it is time to call a halt. The war has awakened new ideals and we have ceased to think or talk in terms of millions and use billions in stead, If this continues we will soon be using trillions as our measure of finances. No nation, even the Uni ted States, the richest on earth, can stand this pace. People, especially those connected with the government and with war work, have gone wild over money and are asking sums never dreamed of be fore and are not only asking but are getting these vast sums and they ara being expended recklessly. Recently the American people were called upon for a vast sum for united war work, the money to go to seven different or ganizations for the relief, care, educa tion and comfort of the soldier. The people responded liberally. Now we are told that thç Y. M. C. A., only one of the seven organizations, has $85,000,000 on hand and are being puz zled to know what to do with it. Nothing is said of the surplus the other six organizations may have on hand. It has been but a comparatively few years since the' first "billion dollar congress" startled the world and Us "reckless expenditures" became a po litical slogan that all but wrecked the party in power. Yet we are spend ing more than a billion dollars a month and speak of hundreds of millions as carelessly as if we were talking of pennies. When the naval appropria tions reached $20,000,000 per year con servative people were shocked at the extravagant program, yet this week the naval committee of the house adopted, unanimously, a resolution calling for the expenditure of $750, 000,000 per year for three years (a total of $2,250,000,000) for naval ex pansion. There was some hesitancy about allowing that much but Pres ident Wilson cabled from France in dorsing the amount asked for and it was adopted unanmiously. We are notified that a fifth "Liberty Loan" will be called within the next few^months and the amount asked for will probably be from six to eight billion dollars. This, remember, is merely a loan. The government is planning to go six or eight billion dollars deeper into debt by borrow ing that sum from the people of this country. Placing this loan at eight billions and the interest at four per cent the interest, alone, will cost the people of the United States as much annually as it cost to run the gov ernment a few decades ago, and this is to be the fifth loan. The interest bill, alone, of the United States will soon reach, if it has now' already reached, a billion dollars a year, which, less than 20 years ago, was the largest sum expended in a single year by any congress of the country. Isn't it about time to call a halt—to begin economizing and cutting down these enormous expenditures and ap propriations? » Pa to TREACHERY OF LABOR. It will be many years before or ganized labor recovers from the blow given it by the Seattle strike. When employes who have no grievance against their employers with whom 'there is no controversy as to wages or conditions, violate their agreement and walk out, leaving their employer to suffer serious loss in order to force some one with whom neither they nor their employers have any interest In common to give wages never dreamed of to a striking organization which has violated its agreement and struck for higher wages before the expiration of its contract, no one can or will have any confidence in the principles of the union which permits or orders this. Yet that is what is occurring at Seattle. Men and women members of 130 dif ferent unions, are quitting their work and causing their employers untold loss and inconvenience, despite the fact that they have no quarrel or dis agreement with their employer. They deliberately violating their con tract with their employers^breaking their word and destroying confidence and faith in union labor, for the pur pose of helding a gang of foreign ag itators to dictate to the government (for the ship yards are working on government contracts) and force this government to pay wages that are un reasonable. striking for $12 per week, workeis in the ship yards are striking for $8 per day and men and women are giving up their jobs, many of whom will never be able to secure them again, to help this unjust de mand. : : e English wprkmen are Seattle Push back the tyr .... ..._, .
