The Right To Work?
An expert workman goes out to get a job.
After satisfying his prospective employer as to abil
ity, qualifications and trustworthiness, the employer asks,
"Do you belong to the Boilermakers' Union?" "No,"
says, the prospective employee. "I am sorry", says the
employer, If I hire you, all my other men will strike."
And I thought this was a free country with equal op
portunities," said the prospective employee as he turned
Industry The Best Educator
Board and commissions to save our children, child
welfare leagues, child labor bureaus to keep children
from being employed at honest labor, laws to prohibit
children under sixteen from being employed in industries,
are all right in sentiment, but often go too far. Does it
really help children to have them idle? Parents who
teach their children habits of industry and saving instead
of letting them adopt habits of idleness and extravagance
are making the best citizens of them.
Draining The Taxpayer
When specific means of reducing tax burdens on the
public are pointed out, why is it so hard to get action?
Take the feature of the Federal Farm Loan Act
which exempts Government Farm Loan Bonds ' from all
forms of taxation. A means is here furnished for near
ly $500,000,000 of rich investors funds to escape all forms
of taxation which the balance of the community must
The farmer is not really benefited ts he must help
make up the taxes escaped by the persons who buy these
Taxing the bonds the same as any others which raise
monev for Drivate use would not hurt the act and its
- benefits to the farmer but it would stop one of the leaks
which is draining the taxpayer today.
Silver Stocks Are Small
Total silver purchased by the Government at $1 an
ounce under the provisions of the Pittman act now a
mounts to 57,468,697 ounces.
Total imports of foreign origin silver into this coun
try Jaunary to May 20, are $22,676,662, value, or about
37,880,000 ozs. at the five months' average price of 60
cents an ounce. Exports of foreign silver are $18, 520, 550,
representing excess in imports of $4,156,112. It has been
carefully estimated that consumption of foreign silver in
this country so far this year is more than 10,000,000 ozs.

Silver holdings of the leading banks of Europe have
ncreased during the past three months.
The Pittman act has been the one ray of light in the
western mining industry as it kept the silver mines oper
What Mining Means
mi TTT A 1 1 1 1 m
ine west nas Deen experiencing a snut-aown oi one
of its greatest industries, copper mining.
In 1913 the copper output of the country totaled 1,
224,484,089 lbs. If the output for the. balance of 1921
approximates the June rate, 1921 domestic production
will be 440,000,000 lbs., or about 800,000,000 lb3. less
than for 1913.
Many western communities which were inclined to
treat mining with indifference during the war period,
nave at last come to realize what this great employing
industry means in the way of western prosperity. Labor
agitators and tax agitators who have used this industry
as a target for their activity will find that for some time
to come in the future they will not be welcome in mining
communities. Too many citizens and workingmen now
realize that their prosperity is inseparable from that of
the mines in many of our western states.
It will be a welcome day when western copper mines
can again resume their activity.

Saving is the basis of affluence and independence.
Be free from worry; have a tidy sum laid aside for the
rainy day they always come, and with them regrets
and difficulties because of lack of forethought, if you
have not saved. '

method of saving with a nice interest added.
