The population is growing; and the amount of soil utilized for cultivation has been increased in a like ratio, probably not any great er. Trade begins with the farmer, and if he is reasonably successful other avenues of industry prosper likewise. In this country one dol lar is considered a fair price for wheat(and not any too much either, considering the crop failures) and two dollars a barrel a fair ex change for corn. The cotton and tobacco countries have their aver age values. If the farmer can get these prices he can succeed. If not he get$ in debt and finally his land goes to the capitalist. Years Jn increase of fl2,922,S4 over the Cjcal year endiDg June 30 last year. The question is, what becomes of this liquor? Who consumes it? Where is It used? Unquestionably much of it goes to dry territories, but it can hardly be urged that more liquor Is consumed in prohibition territory thap there was when saloons existed. Doubtless much of the Increased con sumption is due to the prosperous times in which more money is spent for drink in the cities and where the saloon remains. Increase of popula tion can not account for it. Count ing the million increase of population through Immigration, many of whom do not drink and many of whom are women and children, there is no In crease of population which would ac count for the Increased consumption of liquor. There ought to be a de crease.

Tbe manufacturers, the rail roads, and almost every vocation under the sun is organized ex cept the farmers. Can any man give a suitable rea son why they should not cooper ate and protect their interests? Why should there not be a coun terbalance at the other end of the line? Suppose the farmers had at the present time warehouse facilities of ample proportions to take care of their crops. They are better prepared than any other class of people to take care of themselves until there is a demand from the miller or consumer, and in the meantime the speculator is not fattening on his work.

The farmers' organ- of Congress in December recom mend the passage of an act author izing the issuance of $50,000,000 in bonds and place the money at points where it can best be utilized to relieve the situation. The amount may be $50,000,000 or 1100,000,000, according to the best judgment of Congress. With the millions of gold arriving in New York and the issuance of this amount of bonds some relief should accrue to tbe congested condition of money matters. There is something wrong about the whole business and the way it looks over here the attention of Congress should be directed to the causes which led to the panic, and not a "whitewash," but a real live investigation should be made of these causes.

We have about come to the con clusion that the best thing Demo crats can do next year is to let the question of a Presidential candi date take care of itself and turn their attention to the election of Congressmen. Bryan will never give his hearty support to any other Democratic nominee and he cannot marshal the hosts himself. So let tbe organization and cam paign forces move towards the apitol. ganization of the farming classes More than through any other medium the farmers' organizations will bring the neutralization or dissolution of combinations and trusts. lou may pound on the tariff wall till doomsday and worth a cent.

WHAT THE FiatJEES SHOW. Including Oklahoma there are now or will be on Jan. 1 five prohibition States in the Union Maine, "Ver mont, Kansas, Georgia and Oklahoma. In the recent election several Illinois counties joined the prohibition group and over 3,000,000 people In that State live In dry territory. Thirty-four States have restrictive local option statutes, and in many States, as in Tecne-ec, liquor U sold in but few counties. In 1870 the number of peo ple resident In dry territory was 3,500,- 000. In 1000 the number had increased to 18,355,000 aod In 1907 It is 33,000, 000, or considerably more than one third of the total population. In spite of this there was consumed in this country during the past fiscal year a total of 134,142,074 gallons of whis key, or 11,409,232 gallons more than in the previops year, whlle the con sumption of beer was a'so largely in creased.
