S .Navy n n BANKS AND BONDHOLDERS MAY CONTINUE PROSPERITY (By Carter Glass, Secretary of the United States Treasury.) No group of men in the Uinted States measured up to the test of the great war more admirably than did the bankers. The success of the United States Treasury Department in float ing over $21,000,000,000 in Liberty Bonds and Victory Notes during the past two years was due in no small measure to the patriotic co-operation of the banks. They took a most ac tive part in each of the loan cam paigns. They subscribed generously for themselves, made loans to their cus tomers in order that they might buy bonds and sold bonds on installments to accommodate those having small savings. In other words, the banks did every thing possible to promote the sale and distribution of government securities. The banker can render an equally great service in reconstruction co-operating with the government in its movement to teach the people of the United States the lessons of sound finance and of wise investment. In promoting this cause the banker will GET SLOAN'S FOR YOUR PAIN RELIEF You don't have to rub It In to get quick, comfort ing relief Once you've tried it on that stiff Joint, sore muscle, sciatic pain, rheu matic twinge, lame back, you II find a warm, soothing relief you never thought a liniment could produce.

Now that the war is over, the peo ple should be impressed with the wis dom of holding their government se curities and also of purchasing more, from time to time. The more gene rally the people of the United States absorb our government securities the greater will be the ability of the com mercial banks to devote practically all of their resources to furnishing ade quate credit to the commerce and in dustry of the country. Providing short time credit to com merce and industry is their normal peace time function. The sale and movement of farm crops, manufac turing products, and all other commo dities, as well as the continuous and efficient employment of labor, in fact, the whole industrial process will be promoted by permitting the commer cial banks to devote all their resourc es to this function. The people of the United States should therefore be encouraged to save and pay off their installments and borrowings on bond collateral as rapidly as possible and also to pur chase additional government securi ties as issued from time to time or in the market. If this is done the peo ple of this country will be benefited m a two-fold way. In saving to pay their loans and in stallments and also in order to buy additional Liberty Bonds and notes, Treasury Savings Certificates and War Savings Stamps, they will re frain from waste and unnecessary ex penditures and thus free material .and labor for the production ol commodi ties which are now so desperately needed the world over. At the same time they will be strengthening them selves financially. No one can do better than to make a substantial proportion of govern ment securities the foundation of his investment fund. Nothing else will give such sound and unfailing support to his entire financial structure and at the same time yield such excellent re turns. The less one can afford to risk his funds, the less time he has to de vote to his investments, and the less experience he has had in the thWs which are daily affecting the values of ordinary ftonds and stocks, the larg er should be the proportion of his tunds invested in securities which need practically no attention, which are acknowledged by all to bo abso lutely safe, and which yield a satis factory return. Therefore, on account of the direct financial benefits to the investors, on account of the indirect assistance which it will give the government and on account of the effects in bringing about normal financial, industrial an living conditions, I bespeak the co-operation of all the people and especial ly of aU saving and investment insti tutions in the promotion of nation wide saving and the distribution of United States securities among' the people. : CONTRACT FOR CONCRETE HIGHWAY TO BE LET SOON f or something extra fine try some of that Yeal Boast, Cutlets or Chops at Bothel's Meat Market. ' The County Court of Mississippi county, within the next week, will let the contract for the first concrete highway to be built in Southeast Missouri, the Charleston-Bird's Point road, connecting Charleston and Cairo, 111., a distance of 15.3 miles. The concrete road project was origi nated by Thad Snow of Charleston in February. Snow obtained subscrip tions to the amount of $110,000 to ward paying the difference between a gravel road, as proposed by the county court, and a concrete road. Of the amount subscribed, Cairo, 111., gave $35,000. The road is a part of the Cairo-Poplar Bluff military highway, and has been given the right of way over other good roads projects in the county. It is planned to extend the road on through Charleston and Bertrand to connect at Buckeye with the rock road leading through Scott county. Over $2,000,000 has been voted for good roads in Mississippi, Scott and New Madrid counties. Keep Clean Keep clean inside, as well as outside.

AH Druggists EBII Profit-sharing on a frank and fair basis was declared to be the only so lution of the present industrial unrest, in a speech delivered at the annual mooting of the National Civic Feder ation here today Joy George W. Per kins. Perkins said he was convinced that labor was entirely willing that capital should have its "fair reward and prop er protection," but that there were too many instances in which capital had demanded "improper protection and had taken exorbitant reward." At the same time Perkins denounc ed bonus nystems cs doing more harm than good, and as stirring up trouble rather than alleviating it. The giving of bonuses, he claimed, caused em ployes to feel that the employers were making vast sums of money out of which a sop was thrown to them to bribe them into feeling kindly disposed or to ward off a demand for a general increase in wages. Describes His Plan. As an alternative Perkins proposed a definite detailed scheme of profit sharing which, he said, had been adopt ed by some companies with which he was connected and had proved most successful. He described this plan as follows: "1. Every business has, first of nil, to earn operating expenses, deprecia tion and fair returns on honest capi talization. "2. I believe that every business shouhl consider that the compensation paid employes is for the purpose of earning a sum of money sufficient to pay the above mentioned items. "3. I believe that any profits over and above such sum should, on some percentage basis, be divided between capital used in the business and th employes engaged in the business. 4. l hclieve that in neither case should these profits bo immediately withdrawn from the business; that they .-houkl be left in the business for a reu.-unahle length of time, to pro tect n: 1 increase its financial strength and .-.-uoty; that, in the case of cam tal, its shaie of these profits should be iwiiej to surplus; that, in the ease or employes, their share of thcsc pro fits should he distributed to them in some form of security representing an inteiest in the business, and that each employe should be remured to haul such security for a lcasonable length ot tunc, say three to live years. Base Shares on Wages. "5. I believe that the employes' share of these profits should be allot ted to them as nearly as possible on the basis ol the compensation they re ceive. Up to date, this has proved to be the best method. The employer who objects to profit sharing because he is making so much money "that he is afraid to let even his own employes know hvw much money he is making" was declared by the speaker to be "more than any other, responsible for the serious dif ferences today existing between cap ital mid labor, for, with the growing intelligence of the masses, how can he expect such a situation to continue? fcverv year, yes. every day. it becomes clearer and clearer that such a condi tion will no longer be tolerated and must speedily pass away. Would it not be better for him to use some in telligent foresight and meet what clearly are to be the immediate fu ture demands of public opinion?" Must Have Co-operation I'erkins said that the history of the relations between labor and capi tal could be traced through the terms successively used to denote the man who worked for a wage and the man who paid the wage. First it was own er and slave," then it became "master mil man," today it is employer and employe" and tomorrow Perkins de clared he believed "it must be part ners." In conclusion he said: .Since the beginning of time no coun try has ever had such an opportunity to extend its trade, increase its pros perity and better the material condi tion of every one of its people as has the United States of America at this hour. The only factor missing is that of close 'co-operation here at home among ourselves. It seems incon ceivable that we fail to realize where our weakness lies and fail to adopt the one and only remedy for it. In the strenuous competition with the rest of the world that this country is on the eve of facing could we have a stronger weapon than complete co-operation between capital and labor at home?" c a package before the war c a package during the war c a package NOW THE FLAVOR LASTS SO DOES THE PRICE!

But Filipino-American relationship, to be enduring, should be based on mu tual respect arising out of mutual un derstanding, and not on the alleged incapacity of one based on misrepre sentation and downright unwillingness to look the truth in the face. The tragedy of 1898, when the great est republic on earth trampled upon the aspiration of the only Christian people in the Orient, was the result cf misunderstanding of America's ig norance of our struggle against Spain, and her unwillingness to ascertain what the other side thought, and her failure to apply what the Washington Post terms the best possible rule, in the absence of authentic information, and when dealing with oljier peoples. "Put yourself in his place." America forgot her traditional generosity, and instead of meeting Filipino aspirations half way, carried her war to the bit ter end, and then assumed the unique role of dispenser on the installment plan of liberty and democracy anion;; a Christian people who sacrificed many precious lives against Spain in de fense of those sacred human rights, j and later fought America herself to prove to the world how much they I cared for those rights, j Ever since the tragedy of .1899 j America has been flooded with press , materials tending to prove Filipino In , capacity, and intended to allay public i opinion, and to justify Philippine re tention. After twenty-one years of as- sociation with America, we still find no less a responsible paper than the New York Tribune making the state ment that the Filipinos "are not ca pable of self-government" and this in the face of available information. Can you blame the Filipinos for show ing impatience at the slow fulfillment of America's promise? Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.

I . ., Jl In an editorial entitled "The Philip pines and the League", the New York Tribune of September 9, arguing ajrainst President Wilson's proposition to admit the Philippines into thd League of Nations, advances the fol lowing reason: "They have a few or none of the qualifications necessary for independence. They are a mix ture of races, dominated politically by a small minority in the central distirct of Luzon. They are not capable of self-government. Any government set up at Manila would be a prey to rev olution and to outside intrigue. It could not maintain the standards requisite for equal association in the league," We would prefer to have the Tribune come out in the open in opposing Philippine independence, rather than , Keep narping on the obsolete and in sulting reasoning based on the al leged incapacity of the Filipinos. .This political camouflaging the assump tion that 6ne - people is incapable of self-government, and therefore, must be ruled by another is the same Dre tense that gives Japan color of title in Korea. Incidentally, it. is the self same mental attitude which led the Germans to believe that they were God's chosen to rule the world. It is a handy moral justification of autoc racy and should, therefore, not be resorted to by the most enlightened democracy in the world. there are good reasons why Ameri ca's power in the Far East should not be lessened and the realization of Filipino national aspiration does, not Kate?
