tive session last night voted 17 to 3

With the swag
When the war eDded
and the American people
fouiid time to look after
affairs at home, they do
manded a reckoning with
those t responsible for the
riot of .plunder which ruled
in American business.
During the. war the government had called up the people to
give their sons, to give their substance, to buy Liberty bonds,
. buy Victory bonds, buy thrift stamps, Bupport drives.
And the people did give and give again. ' They"' gave out of all
proportion to the ability. '- '
While the war was on the people blindly accepted the mount
ing costs of living as a part of the ,war bUrden:;-. There was no
time to investigate its cause, no facts upon which to determine
as to its justice. ,l
But when the war was over and prices continued to soar, when
living cost 25 per cent more in 1919 than in;19r8, and 1920 cost
17 per cent more than 1919, the limit o-f forbearance had been
reached. The storm broke. The American .people demanded that
the robbers who were plundering the public be cailed to account.
And the robbers were ready to raise tho cry of "Stop, thief!"
and lead an indignant public off on a alse trail.
The real profiteers were fully organized and prepared. They
, had been organizing trusts :and combinations to control prices
for twenty years. They had control of agencies to mako the
alarm nationwide. Their press covered the entiro country.
There are a few magazines and papers in this country that are
not subsidized by the "Big Business" interests of the country.
They speak out with a clarion cry against' the evils of the day.
One of the most conspicuous of these is La Follette's Magazine,
edited by Senator Robert. M. La Follette: lt is exposing the
Real Thief" in public and business life.
