The Closed Market.
The increasing stringency in financial
markets for the last few years, with
the lowering quotations on standard se
curities, now appears exceedingly for
tunate. Tf this world war had struck us
at the high figures of 1906 the ensuing
panic would have been incalculable.
Brokers and bankers and moneyed in
stitutions would huve popped on every
hand.
It remains to be seen how well we
shall get through the trouble when our
market reopens, as it some time must.
The additional currency, liberated by the
Aldrich-Vreeland act, as modified by re
cent amendments, should prove of great
steadying force. And by the time the
market opens the financial leaders will
undoubtedly be in readiness to sustain
it against any drastic bear Taiding.
With the volume of securities that will
inevitably be unloaded on us by reason
of European necessities, it is probably
wise merely as a business proposition
that we are not openly floating war
loans here. We shall have about all we
can do to finance our own institutions,
do our own business, and buy back our
own stocks.
How great the ultimate decline in list
ed values in this country will be de
pends on the length of the war and the
exhaustion of the world's resources.
From a short combat the world should
soon recover, and particularly would the
Cnited States convalesce readily. But
a long war would drug us iu the mire
of poverty. The world's capital is rath
er fluid commodity. The unloading of
securities already alluded to differs not
greatly fiom a foreign loan, since it re
leases money abroad for investment in
home war bonds.
The world's wealth is thns like the
water in a series of connecting lakes.
It gravitates toward the spot of great
est depression, and no barriers which we
ran set up, like the president's wisely
attempted interdiction of war loans, in
the long run prevent money from going
where the demand for it is greatest.
The depletion of Europe's wealth will
raise the demand for ours, and this raise
will fall on ourselves, showing its ef
fect in house rents and business enter
prise of every sort. It will, for example,
delay the electrification of Amerion
railroads 20 years, and of every other
improvement which lies within the reach
of 4 per cent money, but scampers out
of the sight of that commanding 8 and
10 per cent.
VYe are probably in for a period of
high interest rates, like that which fol
lowed the Civil war in America, with
all the servitude which those lay on in
dustry and trade. The country was then
young and could stand it. The fertile
fields of the West were just opening up
for settlement. But to-day, apart from
war conditions, we are facing economic
problems not unlike those of the older
nations of the world. High rates of in
terest, like high taxation, will accentuate
the burden. Boston Herald.

John A. Moon of Tennessee, the chair
man of the House committee on the
postoflice, which expends over $2OO,00O,
000 a year, has discovered a grievous
situation. "Able-bodied men who have
no earthly reason for being there under
this administration" to quote his ex
act words are beneficiaries of the pub
lie bounty, and Moon wants it stopped.
But what is the nature of this largess
to able-bodied men? They are holding
places, to which they had come by long
training and experience, as assistant
postmasters. If they were cripples or
invalid and must be supported, Mr.
Moon implies that he would not turn
them out, but that able-bodied men
should thus lie down on this adminis
tration for support, passes his under
standing. -
This is the old and nearly ineradi
cable spoils idea. A place under the
government is a sinecure to be pased
around among friends. And so long as
this is the idea, the volume of work will
be adjusted to that theory. The world
hires doctors, lawyers, builders, station
agents, eomjpositors for the work they
do, regarding it as no offense that they
should take the pay while still able
bodied. But under the government, it
is so different!
Mr. Moon will doubtless vote to take
over the telephone, telegraph, and ex
press business bv the federal govern
ment, thereby displacing a regime of fair
play for one of patronage. He evidently
thinks our civilization could stand up
under the strain. State Treasurer Mans
field announces with becoming solemnity
that he shall never appoint a Republican
where he can rind a Democrat that will
perform the required duties to Mr. MShs
lield's satisfaction. If his own perform
ance sets the standard, this ought to be
easy. Boston Herald.
Mr. and Mrs. Guy Wilson Outwitted By
Friends on 25th Anniversary.
Fully 50 of th friends of Mr, and

home Saturday svening notwithstanding
the wet weather, to celebrate with them
the 2.r.th anniversary of their marriage.
The original plan was to surprise them

fall convinced the promoters that the

presence at the proper place wbj nevun-u.
