There is an Il lustration which I have used u great many times. I will use lt again, be cause lt is the most serviceable to my mind. Wc often speak of a man who cannot lind his way in some lunglc or some desert as having lost himself. Did you never reflect that that, is the only thing ho has not lost? Ho Is there. He lost the rest of the world. He bas no fixed point from which to steer. He does not know which is north, whl i ls south, which Is east, which west; and, if lie did know, he IB rn confused that he would not know In which of those directions his goal lay; and, therefore, following his heart be walks in o great circle from right to left and romes back to where he started, to himself again.

There are two aspects and activities of the'government with which you will naturally come into most direct contact. The Government's Power. "The first tb the government's power of inquiry-systematic and disinter ested Inquiry-and, its power of scien tific assistance. You get on illustra tion of the lutter; for example, in thc department of agriculture. Has lt occurred to you, I wonder, that we are just upon the eve of a time when our department of agriculture will be of Infinite importance to the whole world? Should Plant More Grain. "There ls a shortage of food In tho world now. That shortage will be more serious a few months from now than ft ts now, lt is necessary that we should plant a great deal moro. It ls necessary that our land should yield more per acre than it does now. It is necessary that there should not be a plow or a spade idle in this coun try it the world ls to be fed. . . . "The origin and use of that depart ment is to Inform men of the last de velopments and disclosures of science, with regard to all the processes by which soils can be put to their proper use and their fertility made the great est possible. i "Similarly with the bureau of stand arda lt is ready to supply -those things by which .you can set forms, you cap state bases.,for all the scien tific processes ot business. A Bureau of Inform?t len? "The government of* the United States ls very properly a great in strumentality of Inquiry and informa tics. . . . We ougl t long ago to have sent the best eyes of the jovern tnent out ?i the world w?^re the op portunities end openings ot. Ameri can commerce and American genius were to be found. Other Ways ta Use Government. ,"But there are other ways of us ing the government of the United states. . . . ron can use the gov ernment, or thc United States by In fluencing Its legislation. That has been a ?er> active Industry, hut it has nat always been managed 4n the In terest ot the wholo people. It ls Very Instructive and useful for the gov ernment of the United States'to have such means as you ere ready to sup ply for getting ? sort oX< consensus of opinion which proceeds from no par ticular quarter, and originates with no particular interest, because infor mation h? the very foundation of all right action In legislation. . Rosiness Mea Caa Not Comp?sin. "Men on the- Inside nf business know how business i* conducted and they can not complMe ii mea on thc outside make nwt&kes about busi ness, it they du hot come from Ute in side and give tfaafelnd of advice which ls necessary. The trouble in the psst -for I think the thing ls changing very rapidly-baa generally been that they came with all their bristles ont They came ou the defensive. They came to nee, not What they could ac complish, but weat they could pre vent They did not come to guide, hut they cams? to block and (hst is of ao usc whatever to the general body pol itic. . . . A Splendid Side to Wax. "There are a great many dreadful things about 'war, as nobody needs to be told in tills ?lay of distress and of terror. Hut there is one thing about war which has a very splendid side, and that is the consciousness that a whole nation gets, that they must all act as a unit, for the nation; and when peace is as handsome as war. there will be no war. When men, I mean, engage in the pursuits of peece in the same spirit of self sacrifice, and of conscious service of the communi ty with which, at any rate, the com mon soldier engages in war, then ?hall there be wars no more. You haw moved the vanguard for the 1'nited StateB in the purposes of this association just a Httle nearer that Ideal. That is the reason* I sm here because I believe that. Asks For Adrice. v "There ls a specific matter about which, I, for one, want your advice. I>et me say, if I may say it without disrespect, that I do not think you arc prepared to give it right away. You will have to.make some rather extend ed inquiries before you are ready to give it. What I am thinking of is competition in foreign markets us be tween the merchants of different na tions. 'I speak of the subject with a cer tain degree of hesitation, because tho tiling farthest from my thought ls tak ing advantage of nations now dis abled from playing the full purt in that competition, and seeking a sud den selfish advantage because they are for the time being disabled.. Pray believe me, that we ought to elimi nate all that thought/from our minds and consider this matter as if we and tile other nations of tho world were in the normal circumstances of com merce. There is a normal circum stance of commerce in which we arc apparently at a disadvantage. Our Anti-Trust Laws. "Our anti-trusi laws apparently . . make it Illegal for merchants in the United States to form combina tions for tbe purpose of strengthening themselves In taking advantage of thc opportunities of foreign competi tion. That is a very serious matter for this reason: There ure some cor porations and some-firms, for all 1 know, whose business is great enough and whose resources are abundant enough to enable tbem to establish selling agencies in foreign countries, to enable them to extend the long credits which in some cases are neces sary in order to keep the trade which they desire; which enables. In other words, to organize their business in foreign territory'iri a way* which the smaller man can not afford to do. His business has not grown big enough to permit him to establish selling agen> cles. Tho export commission mer chant', perhaps, taxes him a little blt too high to an available competitive means of conducting and extending hie business. The question arises, therefore, how are the smaller mer chants, how are the younger and weaker corporations, .going to get a foothold as against the combinations which are permitted and even encour aged by foreign governments in this very Held ot competition. Is ?Front Missouri." y "American merchants feel that they are at a very considerable disadvant age in contending against that. Tho matter bas been many times brought to my attention and I have each time suspended judgment, because in this matter 'I am from Missouri.' and I want to be shown this: I want to be shown how that combination can be made and conducted in a way which won't ose it against the use Of every body who wants to use it. A combi nation has a tendency to exclude new members. . . '. "What I would like very much to be shown, therefore, 1B a method of cooperation which Is not a method of combination. . . Moat of our Combinations have a safety lock and you have to get the combination to get in. I want to know how these coop erative methods can I adopted for the benefit of every bot? y A ho wants to use them, and I say frankly, if I can be "hown that, I am for them. "If I wean not be shown that. I am against them, and I heston to add that hopefully I expect that I can be shown." The president said' that he hoped the organisation would take steps to discover the opinion of the small mer chante and bankers in . the country . districts On the subject. "Aa a matter of fact,"' he contln . ned, "you do not' have time to think In a city. It takes time to think. . . , Solid Thinking. "There are thinking spaces In this country, and some of the thinking done ls very solid thinking* Indeed; the thinking of the sort of men that we all love best, who think*for them selves, >who do pot see things aa they are told to see them, but look at them md see them for themselves. .

The Value of Cooperation. "It ls a splendid thing to be part of a gre.at wide-awake nation; lt Is a splendid thing to know that your own strength ls infinitely multiplied by the strength ot otho- men who love the country; it ira splendid thing to feel that the wholesome blood of a great country can he united in a common purpose and that by frankly looking one another In Ute face and taking counsel with one another, prejudices will drop awscajad handsome under standings will arise and a universal spirit of service will b?* engendered, and with this Increased sense of com munity of purpose will coma a vanity enhanced individual power of achieve ment for we will be elevated by the whola naas ot which we'constitute s part.* _ Secretar/ Brysm Hpeeks.

"The present war has shown us the disadvantages to which we are sub jected when we rely upon foreign ships to carry our merchandise," said he. "The interruption of trade, Incident to any great war throws a heavy bur den upon the neutral nations. Steps have already been taken to largely in crease our merchant marine and the shipping bill is a still more important step toward independence upon the seas. Ships under government con trol will serve a double purpose, one permanent lu its nature and the other Important in an emergency such as now exists. Things to Consider. "The permanent advantage of gov ernment ships ls to be found in the fact that they can establish new trade routes, acting as pioneers and going where private ships would be afraid to venture. "In addition to our permanent needs we have urgent temporary demands to consider. There are numerous rea sons why the government should be prepared to meet such an emergency as that which now confronts ns. Our traffic ls Interrupted and available ships are so scarce that freight rates have risen enormonsly. Government competition would tend to prevent the injustice from which our commerce is now suffering." The Ship Parchase Bill. - Secretaary Bryan's approval of the government's ship purchase bill brought forth loud shout) of "no, no," and '"yes, yes'" from all parts of the ball. v "I am too well ir ware of the force of private interests." said Secretary Bryan, "to expect unanimity to the proposal for government ownership o* ships no niattir how much the people may wish it." Urges Legislation. Closer cooperation between busi ness men and the government was urged by President Jphn H. Fahey in his annual address. He suggested that many American commercial treaties were unsuitable, and that If the new federal trade commission could not perform the duties of a tariff commis sion a "positive means, for meeting tho needs" should be found. He urged the merubers to take an Interest in rural credit legislation, a budget system for national finances, a nation al labor exchange and means to In duce Immigrants to go to the farms. Resolutions were introduced call ing for the amending of the Income tax, water power legislation, more "business men in congress, giving the president power to veto separate items in appropriation bills, and mil ling upon the president to publish an opinion by the department of justice or some other source as to the extent to which exporters may lawfully co*\ operate.
