FORD'S VIEW ON LABOR, It ls a fact significant of the mime uluoa growth of the motor car Indus try that*-the . moat prominent figure today in tthc. C. S. government? ef forts to reconcile capital and labor should be a motor car manufacturer. That man Is Henry Ford of Detroit. And the testimony which ho recently gave lo the Federal ludtistri.il Com mission, was easily the moat Impres sing and convlcing that has been of fered. A burst of applause r.jrept through 'the aldirmanlc chamber in thc old New York city hall when Mr. Ford, testifying, said quietly: "We Will guarantee-to take every man out of Sing Sing and make a man or him." In explaining tito purposes and tho actual resulta .of the stupendous Ford Profit-Sharing Plan Mr. Ford said. "If employers ot labor have a gen uine Interest Sn the linnjrovoment of the condition of labor, no conditions that are irksome or distasteful will be laid upon tho men." This ls even more to the point: "Wo cannot ex pect a man to give Us hts best efforts when, he ls'in dobt and has not enough to keep his family on.4^ Naturally, some of the representa tives of capital and large employers present al the session-were curious to know whether thia distribution In one year ot shoot $10.000,000 of Ford profits, "really paid or' not." Mr. Ford Smiled and said: "I don't know how you would figure that out; however, there bas been an lacrease of between 16 and 20 per cent ef ficiency sine the Inauguration of tho $5-a-day minimum wage, and the pro fit-sharing plan.?' ' it ls Interesting to see how that i ntimate of Kn- increased efficiency, "between IS and liO per cent," is linnie ?nit in tin- production of Ford run?. Lani year the Ford Motor foin puny manufactured and delivered ZA'J, M'J car?. Thia year, between August let, IU11 and August lat, 1916, 300, 000 Forde will be manufactured and Hold at retail, and. thut accomplished. Kurd purcliUHora will share lu Ford prollla. To reach the 300,000 mark means au Increase of a bou I 20 per cent over last year*s production Ford production for August. Septem ber, October und November showed an Increase of josi about 100 per cent, over the Correspond I og period of last year. In other words.

Also, it ls clear Huit Kurd efficiency-under one year of the profit-sharing Alan-has in creased between in and li"? per cent, aa .Ur.

"Provincialism Is not morality," says Dr. Frank Crane, "many con HCicnttouu people feel that whatever is different in immoral. "To many un honest villager and farmer tho city is a sink of Iniquity. The unconscious ground for thia con viction ls simply that so ninny thing.; aro done lu cities to which tho rtirni dweller is not used.

In a man known to tho present generation chiefly through hlH ''doctrine." Having sahl thus ranch, it is almost needless lo add that the man was James Monroe. It ls evident that liad he not writ ten the famous message on l>eceniber ?.. lRUlt. wnrning lOuropcnn powers that America would not tolerate the further extension of their colonial powers in America, his name would mean much less to us than it does. In reality the doctrino was lens lils own than that of his distinguished advisors, but it has given him a kind of immortality.

The American people .'for eight years-ever ni?ee 1907-bavo been economizing aqd wearing'-out their old clothes. They are now going, to- buy some now garments and incidentally also, as shown by the brilliant success of the $5.000,000 auction sale of carpets and rugs in this city within the last few days-some new floor coverings and other "fixln's." When a hundred millions ot popu lation stop hoarding and begin to release their savings and spend money there ts going to be stimula tion and expansion tn all directions. The Western farmer has been en riched by the foreign demand for his cereals at ccrslstcntly record-break ing high prices, and tho (Southern cotton producer, who but a tow months ago expected to bc ruined by thc absence nf European markets for his staple is now getting remunera tive prices.

Neces sary. PHILADELPHIA, May L-Welding l'i?ng. In an address before the Amer ican Academy or Political and Social Science, asserted today that, not withstanding g?nerai misinformation to tho contrary, there Is now and has been available practically ever since tho war begun, ample loading ton nage for shipping their wares from American markets to South. America. Most of these vessels were under for olgn registry, however, he said, and radical changes would have to be made in American laws before the United Slates could take Its place among thc leading nations of thc sea. .Mr. King said in part: "A wrong impression lias been throughout the United States, that we do not have sufficient communi cation with all Ute various countries throughout South America and Cen tral America. To thone In the chip ping trade, lt is hardly n ecos sar to state that since tho war commenced there has scarcely been a period when there was not ample tonnage londingTor the requirements of shippers. "It ls. however, humiliating to think thal tho United States, prob ably the most advanced country in tho world In thc manufacture and value o fits, articles must depend upon foreign tonnage to carry its products throughout the world. When the chango will come is difficult to predict, but it is certain thal but lit tle progress wil' bc made In building up a merchant marine under the Stars and Stripes until we get more intelligent and broader legislation at Washington than has been served to us during recent years. Very many plana have been suggested, numerous bills have boen introduced in con gress and debates have been long and ardous, and without any, or at least very little, result and benefit. "The nearest approach to anything hencucial was the act passed last Au gust by congress, which for a brief period permits the purchase of for eign built vessels and their transfer to the United States flag, and their operations also for a limited period, without many of the existing draw backs ot our navigation laws. Under this act, up to the present time. 13? steamers have been transferred from foreign to United States flag. Unfor tunately Just aa congress closed' it paaaed a bill generally known as the "seaman's bill.' when contained nu merous conditions that add to the al ready too heavily hardened American shipping. How thu difficulty is M be overcome is a problem very dif ficult to solve, but it ls certain to be one that must come to" the front .very largely In tho immediate futuro." Aiken Dispensaries Closed.

In his recently Issued order. Sec- j rctary of the Interior 1-ane has ac centuated a wide-awake policy in the ! direction of making it possible for Americans to "See America First." While it is true that State and local automobile clubs and commercial bodies promptly followed thc sugges tion of President John A-, Wilson of the American Automobile association, that they make clear to tho depart ment of thc interior the quito general desire for the admission of motor vehicles into Yellowstone Park, lt must not be iorgollen- that previous secretaries of thc interior had been similarly petitioned with very intan gible results. But iSecretary Lane took a real In terost in thc matter and referred lt to his competent assistant, Stephen .T. Mather, for thorough Investigation and decision. Familiar with the western country though the owner ot a farm in Connecticut, Mr. Mather promptly proceeded to Ute subject and decided upon the pl ms necessary to admit of the Introduction of tho modern form of roads transportation. In the official bulletin from Secre tary Lane reference ls made to thc necessity of new telephone lines, cheeking stations, and Imposing reg ulations which will insure a safe use of park roads by motor cars aa well as by horse-drawn vehicles. Thia extract from the official communica tion concisely slzsi, up the situation. "Plans carefully worked out by of ficials of the interior department, with the cooperation of the army of ficers, at Ute park, call for a schedule which will keep the automobile trai ne entirely Independent of the stage traffic.
