WEST WANTS PROOF
The Public Lands Committee
of the senate has acted favorably
on the bill for the leasing - ol
government-owned oil lands by a
unanimous vote. Included in the
bill are provisions which, when
it becomes a law, will permit the
owners of lawful claims to oil
lands in the naval reserves to
proceed with their development.
A ten year fight .for a square
deal and the right to produce oil,
is represented in this measure.
When success seemed assured
on previous occasions the vote
getting cry of “conservation’ ’
was used to delay matters.
Development of oil fields in
western states has been deliber
ately held up for ten years by
professional politicians playing
politics with the resources of
Only the passage of the leas
ing bill will prove to the west
that it is not still being used as a
A LITTLE COMMON SENSE
In these days of readjustment
and hair-trigger strikes, let us
talk a little common sense.
Never was there so much mon
ey in circulation as now, and
never was there so much reck
less spending, as compared with
production. We in America seem
prosperous beyond precedent.
But a stern condition exists. The
world is vastly poorer today than
it has been for a long time —ma-
terially and immediately poorer
than it was five years ago.
On a comparatively small frac
tion of the world’s surface, but
in the very beehive of the world’s
industry and commerce, twenty
million producing persons are
» dead before their time or are
permanently unproductive by the
war. The machinery with which
it produced is wrecked or rusted;
the zest to produce is dulled.
Goods that sustained life are
wholly lost out of the world’s
stock. What earthquake and fire
were to San Francisco, the war
has been to Europe.
The world has never before
sustained a dead loss of any such
proportions. ,It is impossible to
say when or how the world will
recover; but that it is poorer than
it was five years ago is incontro
vertible. That it is in debt be
yond all previous records the
books show. The war increased
the debt of Great Britain by for
ty billion dollars, and everything
produced in the war that was
consumed, by the war was lost
from the material wealth of the
And yet, we call conditions un
The fact is, we are prosperous
on borrowed money; and in so
far as we are squandering we
are squandering borrowed mon
ey. For five years this country
had vast prosperity following the
civil war. Then came the panic
of 1873 —a terrific readjustment.
There is no royal road to re
covery from war. The fiddler at
the war dance always drives a
hard bargain. He may take a
note of hand as evidence of the
debt, but not as payment of the
bills Principal and compound in
terest must be paid to the last
During the war people looked
for the government to do every
thing. Unfortunately we got the
habit of believing the govern
ment could do anything. That
illusion served as long as the war
lasted. The bottom is out now.
The nations at war were not
drawing on a vast fund of in
definite quantity, a sort of mir
aculous widow’s cruse of oil, in
exhaustable, undiminis hab 1e .
What they were squandering in
the terrific game v/as the capi
tal of their peoples, all the ac
cumulated gains of generations.
The struggle could not have
gone on much longer. Even
America soon would have begun
to feel the strain, so prodigious
was the effort and so prodigal
the expenditures. The central
powers collapsed because they
could not go farther. It was not
exhaution of men, but of capital.
Men eat and are clothed from
year to year. They have to work
if they have food and clothes.
There is no other way. What
the world must have now is all
the production work possible.
Otherwise we shall meet disas
