Charles M. Schwab's comments up
on the industrial situation submit
ted in an address before the dinner
of the Pennsylvania Society in New
York are of more than passing in
terest. Because of his experience
and standingin the business world
his view will carry weight with
manv people. He said:
"Nothing could be healthier for
American business than the very con
dition through which we are now
passing. The severer the storm now,
the quicker it will be over and the
sooner we can emerge into clear
weather and shape our course upon
the sea of prosperity.
Mr. Schwab thus puts into a terse
phrase,, the thought that has been
harbored by a great number of his
fellow citizens, but which they have
hesitated to utter with such frank
ness. For every man who 'has stud
ied industrial conditions here and
abroad has been impressed by the
conviction that there can be no per
manent return to a normal state ol
prosperity in the United States until
the "settling process" is completed.
The process is now going on, and.
as Mr. Schwab aptly observes, the
faster it proceeds the sooner it will
be over.
There must be a very material
scaling down of prices and surren
der of inordinate profits. There
must come a general retrenchment
all along the line, inciuding individ
uals, business concerns and the gov
ernment. Financial wild-catting
most cease. Reckless speculation
must give way to honest and legiti
mate investment. The greed for
easy money must be supplanted by
industry and earnestness of purpose
Perhaps the treatment will of neces
sity be heroic, but it nevertheless
must be taken if a permanent cure
is to be had.
"The great need of the world to
day," Mr. Schwab is quoted as say
inf, "is to work hard and save."
And he added that this applies to
people of means as well as to the poor
people. It is an admonition that has
been hurled at the public frequently
during the last two years, but which
the public seems rather slow to heed,
though admitting its wisdom. That
there haj been an improvement in
this direction is quite true. Inves
tigation has developed that the peo
ple as a rule are buying with greater
care than formerly. They are try
ing to keep down their expenses to a
reasonable level and to avoid extra
It has been stated that this coun
try has passed through a prolonged
spree of reckless extravagance and
is now at the caster oil stage. The
remedy is not paltable, but it is ef
ficacious, and the dose should not be
delayed. It is to the interest of ev
ery citizen in every walk of life that
a cure be effected as speedily as pos
sible. That can best be accomplish
ed by giving heed to the advice pass
ed out by Mr. Schwab in his New
York address.
Members of congress are casting
about to find some means of helping
the American farmer in the present
The most popular idea thus far
suggested is the revival of War Fin
ance Corporation.
This is a doubtful expediency. The
War Finance Corporation may be
able to supply the farmers with mon
ey, but it cannot change the prices
for agricultural products or provide
the farmers with better market fa
cilities. And these, as all will admit, are
the most important phrases of the
If -the farmer can be furnished
with sufficient funds to finance the
crops of next season, it will be a no
table achievement by congress.
But no law made by man can bol
ster up falling prices, or make it
Possible to sell products for which
there is no demand.
The situation was well expressed
by Senator Nelson, when this sub
ject was brought up in the senate,
as follows:
'To get better markets we must have
a" greater demand from abroad. In
this country we raise a surplus of
agricultural products; our production
is much greater than our consump
tion; we have to get rid of that sur
plus, and in order to get rid of that
surplus we must sell it to advantage
to other countries. With the excep
tion of two crops produced in the
United States, namely cotton and
corn, we come into competition with
all the world."
There can be no foreign market

European countries and they arc put
in a position where they can buy
our products. "They are.'' said the

money or credit, and also with a
shortage of goods to exchange for
our products. None of these things
is touched by the senate resolutions,
and very naturally Senator Nelson
feared that it "might prove a disap
pointment." That is, we think quite
likely. The War Finance Corpora
tion was devised for the purpose, not
of finding markets or establishing
prices, but of financing far as might
be found advisable, establishments,
engaged in the production or impor
tation of war materials.
It could advance money to the far
mers, but could not effect the price
of crops, as Senator Nelson points
out, or solve the problem of mar
kets. Nor would the high duties
that are suggested help in any way,
since they would tend to shut the
farmers up to the already saturated
home market, and make it still more
difficult for foreigners to buy of us.
There are indications that the situa
tion is gradually curing .itself. Fresh
strength in the wheat market, with
advancing prices,, was-noted in Chi
cago yesterday owing,' it is said, to
the belief that "the period of liqui
dation in grain was at end." Ex
port demands are increasing, and on
ly 15,00,000 bushels of the visible
supply is to be. found at western ter
minals. Whatever we can do to improve
world conditions will be directly in
the interest of the American farmer.
Finally, it shoulcJrbe said for Senator
Nelson that he realizes the serious
ness of the situation, is entirely sym
pathetic, and prepared to do all thut
can be done to afford relief.
Secretary Houston and the federal
reserve board are" right in holding
that no. class of citizens, not even so
important a class as the farmers, is
entitled to government relief as
against falling prices, that could not
be demanded with equal justice by
all classes in like cases. Everyone
knows that merchants have been
caught with high-priced goods on
their shelves, and that some of them
have been under the necessity of
shouldering heavy losses. If the
rule that it was sought to establish
had been' adopted, the government
would have been converted into re
lief agency, not simply" for certain
classes, but for the whole people.
We should then have had a develop
ment of paternalism such as had
never before been dreamed of. Busi
ness, including the business of agri
culture, is entitled to fair treatment
by the banks even to liberal treat
ment as far as this is consistent with
safety. But the loans, that are made
must be good loans, and well se
cured. If they are not, we should
have a repetition on a vast scale of
bank failures in North Dakota.
Nor is it the business of the gov
ernment to maintain prices, or to in
tervene to prevent their fall. The
fact that some people suffer from
,such a movement is not relevant t
the issue. It is on this principle
that the treasury and banks have
acted. The result will be found to
be in the interest of the, very classes
that are seeking relief. For the
extreme prices have had the effect
of curtailing purchases. Now that
prices have fallen, purchases have
increased. The government is en
sure. During the campaign much
political capital might have been
made by concessions, but there weri
no concessions, but, on the contrary,
a strict adherence to sound princi
ples. Whether the federal reserve sys
tem works well depends largely on
the character of the men who admin
ister it. It can be made to servo po
litical ends, as it could have been
this year. There are. therefore, no
more important appointments than
those to the federal reserve board.
