them it would be folly to try to fore

of the presidency is made up and
closed, and may be summarized at
least, although it is perhaps foolhardy
to venture into the flames of passions
that blind men alike to the merits and
demerits of almost every president
while he remnains the cedtral figure of
partisan strife. "A statesman is a
politician who is dead," said Thomas
B3. Reed.
Jn this age of ours, when men are
going to school to learn business and
farming and all mariner of vocations,
it was natural that there should appear
in the White House a man like Wood

wardroom. The eighth of our Virginia

Of all thinga, it was a book which he

school days merely as a thesis for his

that our Constitution created a vac

to fill.

Ottro.--,Busness men in Egyt, es
pecially foreigners, pay very little at
tention to the political situation. Tihey
adnit, of course, that the unsettled
conditiotes of a year ago, as well as
the general lack of knowledge of what
the future holds for Egypt, is a deter
rent to free commercial intercourse.
The chief cause for business worry
at this writing is the decline in cot
ton prices plus the general Interna
tional shmp in trade. The two events
coming at the stune time work more
than ordinary hardship to the business
life of Egypt.
One business man remarked that
people in Egypt realized that the
trade of the worid was in a bad state;
that prices were falling the whole
world over, and that there was a gen
eral stagnation in buying. But, he
continued, "other countries have
usually more than one industry upon
which to exist. Here in Egypt we
must live or die at the whim of King
Ootton. This whim is not left in our
power to control. We grow the cot
ton, and Lancashire and Manchester,
as well as your big tire fabric centers
at home, manipulate the buying price.
Of course, every one in Egypt with
a grain of common sense, realizes
that the law oi supply and domqund
sules; but, depending as it does upon
one industry, the bostness life of the
community is more or less lef' open
to unusual perils when that one in
dustry falls."
Bulk of Business LIe.
Thi-s business man was engaged in
the wholesale supply of sundries and
novelties. His point of view may be
accepted as that of such traders in
general-those who buy in Europe,
Anortca or Japan and import the
goods to Egypt for local consumption.
This work constitutes the bulk of the
business life of the community. It is
not the greatest In point of wealth,
however, when one figures the Im
mense amounts involved in the col
lecting, ginning and exp.ortation of
raw cotton. Egypt's normal cotton
crop is hIndled by about a dozen
large British and Levantine firms,
with headquarters in Alexandria.
These latter have been the biggest

As the drop in cotton prices began
