so that they may profit by each others
suggestions and plans, and so that we
may offer our services to co-ordinate
their efforts in any way that they
may deem it -wise to co-ordinate. In
other words, it is the privilege of the
federal government in matters of this
sort to be servants of the executive
of the states and municipalities and
couu'ien, and we shall perform that
duty with the greatest pleasure if you
will guide us with your suggestions.
"I hope that the discussions of this
conference will take as wide a scope
aa you think necessary. We are not
met to discuss any single or narrow
subject. "We are met to discuss the

problems that we are a.booit to discuss
with a prerat deal of confidence
confidence tlxat if we have a common
purpose wo can realize that common
purp-e without surlous or insur
mountable difficult ios.
"The thing- that has Impressed me
most, pentlemen, not only in the re
cent weeks when I have been in con
IV re mo on the other side of the wa
tfi imt for many months before I
went across tne water, was this: "We
jure at last learning- that the business

learning that the whole matter of the

The hearts of the men and women
and children of the world are stirred
now in a way that has never been
known before. They are not only
stirred by their individual circum
stances but they are beginning- to get
a vision of what the general clrcum-
stances of the world are, and there
is for the first time in history an
International sympathy, which ia
quick and vital which does not dis
play itself merely in the contact of
nations but displays itself in the si
lent intercourse of sympathy be
tween great bodies that constitute
great nations; and the significance of
a conference like this is that we are
expressing: in it, and will, I believe,
express in the results of this confer
ence, our consciousness that we are
servants of this grreat silent mass of
people who constitute the United
States and that as their servants It
is our business, our privilege to flnl
out how we can best assist in making
their lives which, they wish them to
be, pivinsr them the opportunities
that they ouprht to have, assisting by
public cotinsei in the private affairs
upon which the happiness of men de
pends. "And so I am the more distressed
that I can not take part in these
councils, because my present business
is to understand what plain men
everywhere want. It is perfectly un

"And so it is with this profound
fueling of the significance of the
things you are undertaking that I bid
vou welcome, because I believe you
iiave come together in the spirit which
I have tried to indicate and that we
will together concert methods of co
operation and individual notion which
will really accomplish what we wish
to see accomplished in steadying and

SALOONS TO 100
Panama, Sunday, March 2 The
high license law which went into ef
fect yesterday reduced the number of
saloons in Panama from 680 to 100.
A number of saloonkeepers who took
out licenses paid for only the month
of March, owing to the fact that the
carnival and festival to be held this
month will be of unusual magnitude.
It la, therefore, expected that there
will be a further reduction in licensed
places on April 1. Under the new
law licenses cost $150 a month, a flgr
ure which only the better class of sa
loons can meet.
The Panaman government is en
forcing the recent decree against
sales of liquor to men of the Ameri
can army and navy which provides
for loss of license, a fine and a jail
sentence for the saloonkeeper con
victed of violations. It is claimed
that all demands of the United States
army officers for the control of the
liquor traffic are met by the present
law, which will be enforced by the
police under supervision of the Amer-
can commissioner of the canal zone.
Vice conditions were placed in the
hands of the United States health au
thorltles several months at the request
of the army administration.

Catholic COUHGil PoifltS Out De
fects in Present System and
Scoring the evils of monopoly by a
small minority of privileged capitalists
and advocating co-operative stores, co
partnership and sufficient Incomes for
J the ereat majority of wage-earners aa
remedies for post-war economic condi
tions in this country, the Administra
tive Committee of four bishops repre
senting the hierarchy of the Catholic
Church in America In conducting the
National Catholic War Council have
issued the following as a part of an of
ficial pronouncement on economic and
Reduction In Cost of Dying.
Thirlng the war the cost of living
has risen at least seventy-five per cent,
above the level of 1913. Some check
has been placed upon the upward trend
by government fixing of prices in the
case of bread and coal and a few other
com m-vji ties. Even if we believe It de
sirable we cannot ask that the govern
ment continue this action after the ar
ticles of peace have been signed, for
neither public opinion nor Congress Is
ready for such a revolutionary policy.
If the extortionate praedcas of monop
oly were prevented by adequate laws
and adequate law enforcement prices
would automatically be kept at as low
a level as that to which they might be
brought by direct government determi
nation. Just what laws In addition to
those already on the statute books are
necessary to abolish monopolistic ex
tortion la a question of detail that
need not be considered here. In nass- i
lng, It may be noted that government
competition with monopolies that can
not be effectively restrained by the or
dinary anti-trust laws deserves more
serious consideration than It has yet
"More important and more effective
than any government regulation of
prices would be the establishment of
co-operative stores, ".'he enormous toll
taken from Industry by the various
classes of middlemen Is now fully real
ized. The astonishing difference be
tween the price received by the pro
ducer and that paid by the consumer
: felt the need of these co-operative en
terprlses as Seenly as the European
working classes and because we have
been too impatient and too individual
istic to make the necessary sacrifices
and to be content with moderate bene
fits and gradual progress. Neverthe
less our superior energy, Initiative and
commercial capacity will enable us
once we set BDOnt task earnestly
immediately and all Its constituent
members ultimately. They will then
realize the folly of excessive selfish
ness and senseless Individualism. Until
they have acquired this knowledge,
training and capacity, desirable exten
sions of governmental action In indus
try will not be attended by a normal
amount of success. No machinery of
i "Despite the practical and lmme
! dlate character of the present state
i ment, we cannot entirely neglect the
question of ultimate alms and a sys
i tematic program, for other groups are
busy Issuing such systematic pro
I nouncements, and we all need some-
thing of the kind as a philosophical
j foundation and as a satisfaction to our
i natural desire for comprehensive state
I "It seems clear that the present in-
dustrial system is destined to last for a
sufficiently near to Justify any
present action based on the hypothesis
of its arrival. This forecast we recog-
nlze as not only extremely probable,
but as highly desirable, for, other ob-
jections apart. Socialism would mean
bureaucracy, political tyranny, the
helplessness of the Individual as a fac
tor In the ordering of his own life and
In neral social inefficiency and' de-
Defects of Present System.
"Nevertheless the present system
stands in grievous need of consider
able modifications and improvement
Its main defects are three enormous
inefficiency and waste in the produc
tion and distribution of commodities,
insufficient Incomes for the great ma
jority of wage-earners and unnecessa
rily large incomes for a small minority
of privileged capitalists. The evils in
production- apd in the distribution of
goods would be in great measure abol
ished by the reforms that have been
outlined in the foregoing pages. Pro
duction will be greatly increased by
universal living wages, by adequate in
dustrial educaiUKiaad hT bacmonlous A
relations lelween labor and capital on
the basis of adequate participation by
the former in all the industrial aspects
of business management. The wastes
of commodity distribution could be
practically all eliminated by co-operative
mercantile establishments and co
operative selling and marketing associ
ations. Co-operation and Co-partnership.
"Neverthelers the full possibilities of
Increased production will not be real
ized so long as the majority of the
workers remain mere wage-earners.
The majority must somehow become
owners or at least In part or the In
struments of production. They can ba
enabled to reach this stage gradually
through co-operative productive socie
ties and co-partnership arrangements.
In the former the workers own and
manage the industries themselves ; in
the latter they own a substantial part
of the corporate stock and exercise a
reasonable share In the management.
However slow the attainment of these
ends, they will have to be reached be
fore we can have a thoroughly efficient
system of production or an industrial
and social order that will be secure
from the danger of revolution. It Is to
be noted that this particular modifica
tion of the existing order, though far
reaching and involving to a great ex
tent the abolition of the wage system,
would not mean the abolition of pri
vate ownership. The instruments of
production would still be owned by in
dividuals, not by the State.
Control ef Monopolies.
"For the third evil mentioned above,
excessive gains by a small minority of
privileged capitalists, the main reme
dies are prevention of monopolistic
control of commodities, adequate gov
ernment regulation of such public serv
ice monopolies as will remain tinder
private operation and heavy taxation
of incomes, excess profits and inherit
ances. The precise methods by which
genuine competition may be restored
and maintained among businesses that
are naturally competitive cannot be
discussed here, but the principle is
clear that human beings cannot be
trusted with the immense opportuni
ties for oppression and extortion that
go with the possession of monopoly
power. That the owners of public serv
Ice monopolies should be restricted by
law to a fair or average return on
their actual Investment has long been
a recognized principle of the courts,
the legislatures and public opinion. It
Is a principle which should be applied
to competitive enterprises likewise,
with the qualification that something
more than the average rate of return
should be allowed to men who exhibit
exceptional efficiency. However, good
public policy as well as equity de
mands that these exceptional business
men share the fruits of their efficiency
with the consumer in the form of lower
prices. The man who utfllaea his abii-it;-
to produce cheaper than his com
petitors for the purpose of exacting
from the public bj high a price for his
product as is necessary for the least
efficient business man is a menace
rather than a benefit to Industry and
"Our immense war debt constitutes
a particular reason why Incomes and
excess profits should continue to be
heavily taxed. In this way two impor
tant ends will be obtained, the poor
will be relieved of injurious tax bur
dens and the small class of specially
privileged capitalists will be colnpelled
to return a part of their unearned
gains to society."

What lovely dresses
Rare beauty, and varied, marts the gathering of
voiles with which we greet the first breath of Spring.
But that beauty is as nothing to the beauty which will
mark "the dresses they are going to make!
How delightfully they will drape! How they will
sparkle in the glow of the Spring sunshine! How light
and shadow will play across their surface and give each,
fold and pleat and tuck an added charm !
Tiny flowers will fairly burst into bloom. Distinctive
plaids will almost advance and retreat as one steps along
in sprightly fashion. And how rich will be these dark
hues as they are made up with a touch of brightness !
But beauty is not all; these voiles have much service
quality too. Fine as they are, they will not be harmed by
laundering. And all through their lives they will retain
their freshness and appeal.
BrIHiant gems of the gathering are the satin-striped
voiles. They are in almost one-color effects, delicate de
signs of much novelty, and above those designs are flashing
gleaming stripes of satin in shade which exactly matches
the prevailing tone of color $1.25 yard.
And their companions are worthy of the place they
hold; rich and beautiful and pretty. Open plaids, tiny
