Iii the last five weeks 1 have been
across the continent and back, I
have traveled over 8,000 mile! on
six different railroads, the Pennsyl
vania, the Chicago, Burlington &
Uuinry, the Northern Pacific, the
Southern Pacific, the Illinois Central
and the Louisville & Nashville.
On o.ily one train was 1 as much
as an hour late. All the others were
practically on time. This is evi
dence that in so far as the passen
ger service is concerned the roads
have not been seriously embarrassed
by the shopmen'! strike and it is,
I think, plain that the unions have
lost their fight unless the ill-advised
injunction obtained by the attor
ney general shall so strengthen their
haiifU that they can command the
co-operation of other labor organi
zations in something like a general
srtike. This is unlikely, but it is
undeniably true that the drastic in
hibition! of the Daugherty injunc
tion are resented by a very large
portion of the community and that
its eftcct has been to widen and
deepen the gulf between corporate
employers and employes.

With the abundant tonnage presently
available ratea are ao low that lha rail
roads no looser attempt to compete with
them. The ' I'reaident Tafl ' of tha
President Line" recently made the trip

prospect that during the coming winter
much of lha California fruit production

The -speeches of tha radical politicians
who hava In many cases been nominated
at tha prlmanea hava fostered this jie
coiuent and tha exploitation of Kuropeen
poverty In which many of tha candidates

led many farmers to realise for tha first

crops Is if some anient dependent upon
tha export demand. This la, J think, on
of tha reaaona why tb cotton la being

Costly for Farmer.
The experience of tha last two year a haa

piteent attitude la on that suggests cau
tion and self-restraint rather than tha
reckless expenditure that ia by some
thought to be essential to good trade and
luelnes activity. Therefore I sm not dis
posed to expect a boom that preauppnae
agilcullural opulence or extravagance. The
oasic conuiiiona are lacking.
ftarondary Inflation.

Inlo what might be called the financial
and Industrial rone of tha country ha 1
tmprrsaed by the persistent belief In a
period of what ha been so often called
"secondary Inflation."
This belief Is predicated upon (lis
shondance of money and bank credit and
the theory that high whki and high
price for what labor produce muat In
time cause an advance all along the line,
It la expected that aa prices advance and
Inventories or sales show profits accrued
or realised people will commence to apund
or speculate somewhat recklessly. Jt Is
upon this theory that the stock market
baa been sustained and advanced during
the strikes, it will probably ba vindicated,
for those who control the reaervolra and
flow of capital accept It and art prepared
to lend fteely.
