BANKERS URGE THRIFT The American Banking Association nopoch a thiec ear campaign to reach every family in the countiy. As a pait of the campaign, gov ernment officials would be called upon to practice the utmost economy so as to reduce federal expenditures. The Tlnift Campaign does not mean to stop buying but to stait producing and saving. We have been thiough an orgie of extravagance and waste. Small saveis. aie to be the chief source in financing the noimal gumth of commeice and industry, says the Association, adding that piesent tax policies offer a serious check to increasing investment by holders of large wealth. Not only must the individual citi7en and wage earner be taught to save, but our govern ment officials must also be impies.sed with this necessity. The tax burden upon industry and commeice, and upon the millions of savings, which would other wise be used to finance new industries and new com merce is beyond all reason and in excess of public need. THE GREAT ELECTRICAL ERA What loyal westerner does not hail the new era of electric power, the development of mine and agricultural wealth, the gieater comforts of life that will be inaugurated by the age of reclamation and irrigation for the west T Our public officials and the state and federal governments have only been playing with these great agencies in the past. The time has arrived when they will be turned loose for the benefit of the present generation. Conservation for the future and unborn generations was a beautiful dream of the poets that pleased the mossback elements always ready to defer action. Henry J. Pierce who. has devoted the past seven years to furthering the interest of federal waterpower legislation that would permit the de velopment of latent waterpower in the United Staes says: "The passage of the federal water power act opens up ai enormous pioneer field for enterprise. Now that they arc given the right to w ork, the right to build and expand and develop, the right to help create a greater and more powerful industrial nation, the right to hope for a generous return for their work and lisk, and the assurance of a safe investment, those who would develop our wasting water powers will re claim deserts and make farms, build factories and cities, open up new reaches of inland waterways, employ labor, reduce the cost of living, increase taxable values, and thus promote the welfare and the piosperity of the Nation." FORESTRY PUBLIC PROBLEM The lumber industry is faced by many serious pioblems today. Western states are favored with the greatest forests in America and their timber products go to all parts of the world. The clay is here when we must utilize our forests to the fullest extent. The problem is one of public interest and it involves questions of future timber supply, water supply and utilization of logged off land. A bill has been introduced in Congress providing $25,000 a year for the establishment and maintenance of a forest station in co-operation with the the University of California. The purpose of this department would be to study the natural history of trees for the purpose ofcultiva tion of forest trees for timber and other purposes, aswell as to carry on experiments and investigations independently or in co-operation with other branches of the federal government and with states, counties, un iversities and individuals, and to determine the proper methods for the constructive management of forests and forest lands for the protection and handling of brush on watersheds important in the supply of water for irrigation and other purposes. The representatives of every west ern state should favor a movement such as this which bears so directly on the future of our forest lands. CARLOADS An increase of one ton in the average load per freight car on Amer ican railroads is equivalent to an addition of about eighty thousand cars. The average tonnage achieved by the railroads in August, was 29.8, as compared to 28 in August, 1918. Therefore the American rail roads, using the same equipment as last year, made it produce the equiv alent of eighty thousand additional cars. Since the roads were returned to private management on March 1, the average mileage per freight car has been constantly increased. It jumped from 24.2 miles in August, 1919, to 27.4 miles in August, 1920. An increase of one mile in the average movement per car per day is roughly equivalent to the addition of one hundred thousand cars. Mr. Frank H. Fayant furnishes these illuminating statistics, which EPrve to show very conclusively what efficiency can do in handling the transportation of the country. With their labor in an apparently satis factory condition the railroads have at least been able to bring all of their energies to bear toward reducing the freight congestion with the equipment which they found left over when the Government ceased to ' "run the railroads regardless of the consequences." MINERAL PRODUCTS The industries of mining and smelting have come through the most trying conditions since the close of the world war. The immediate cut ting off of war demands for all metal products and the enormous accum ulations in the hands of the various governments, with the inflation of labor and material and products entering into mining operations, left all mining, smelting and reduction enterprises suspended in midair. The monetary metals remained at a fixed value based on world-wide prewar cost of production. Gold and silver prospecting and mining on a small scale has practically been wiped out. There is scarcely an ounce of gold, silver or platinum taken out of the earth today but at a loss, and how long can this continue? A new basis of value of these metals, fixed by law at a higher price, a bonus for production direct, or a slid ing scale adjusted to an index number found from the products entering into the pioduction of monetary metali some such plan must be work od out if our country is to remain the premier producer of monetary metals in the woild.
