Insurance, companies stood the test of panic and' disaster better than any other form of savings institutions. Therefore, life insurant isnow sought by men, not only for protection, but r fpr investment. It is the safest fdrm,, of investment, as time has demon strated.

Association is better than a govern ment bond, because it is as safe and the percentage of increase is more than double the rate allowed on gov ernment bonds.

"If Under Socialism" Editor Independent: In your issue of December 11 you have an article published, "Groping in the dark." And tfter reading it over, I felt that it was my duty to dispel the darkness. So cialism not only stands for the produc tion of the necessaries of life, butalso for the 'distribution of the same. Therefore we are obliged to add to your "200,000 millionaire class and 80. 000 army and navy, all of those, now engaged in the retail business, but a su3cient force to operate one govern ment department store in each city of not more than 10,000 inhabitants.. , As it is the design of socialism , to rid society of all of the parasites, that now infest it, we will further add to the . above list, the banker, broker, scalper, real estate agent, all insur ance agents, doctors of law, with thou sands of country editors whose only business it is to advertise the wares of the middle men which would not be necessary under socialism. "We will also add the traveling salesmen with all of those now engaged by the. gov ernment in the manufacturing of im plements of death and destruction used simply to open up new fields for commercialism, and with the tramp element that would show a willingness to work would all be organized into a mighty industrial army sufficient to eliminate every woman and child now employed under capitalism. I will admit that wherg capital has exploited labor, you will find the most scientific and up-to-date machinery that the human intellect can devise, but so far the capitalist has not in vaded the rural distritts only in cer tain localities. So we have one-half of the people of the United otates on tic individual plane without the aid of capital. Therefore, are forced to spend their energy on machinery that would be wholly ignored by the capitalist. For instance, the average farmer goe,; to his field to nlousrh with a snan Tbiorses harnessed with chain tugs nitcneoj-io a piow ana alter following them alPdaylie finds that he has only turned overaisout two and one-half acres; he then proceeds to sow. his grain, which is harrowed in separate ly. But the capitalist Operates th3 Big Bonanza wheat farms oKNorth Dakota, California and Washirigicji with a combined steam plow, seeder and harrow, and instead of cutt'ng shocking, stacking and threshing hi? grain separately as does the small In dividual farmer, he proceeds with a combined steam reaper and thresh er and thus reduces the labor-time in pro ducing one bushol . of wheat from 32 4-5 minutes to 2 1-5 minutes. What is true of raising grain, is also true of stock raising. It is the idea of the socialists for the government to own and operate farms, with the latest labor-saving machinery that can be procured. Socialism goes farther than That: it touches the inner circles of the home. It proposes to build public laundries" and bal erie3 and lift the heavy burdens that now weight down the shoulders of the housewife an;! the mother. You have named three causes that have brought about. the present exist ing evils of society, and they are n doubt real evils, but you have failed to mention one that is greater than eith er of them, namely, the exploiting of the laborer by his em plover. Accord ing to the census bulletin 150, Unite! States government report, the avera.ee production per laborer was $2,451 per year while the average wage paid was $437. Each laborer has been robbed of $2,014 of the product of his own labor. TTnder-socialism that vast army of 125.000 miners that have beep idle all summer would have been emp'oved by the government and would have re ceived the full product of their toil. Under socialism the labor-saving ma chinery ' of the nineteenth century would be a blessing to mankind in shortening , the hours of labor. Bui under commercialicm thev are a curse for the wage slave is forced to work these giant machines and give tht drones that own them the lion's ahart while 'he receives just enough of th necessities of life to sustain his phy sical existence and produce his kind in ordr that the future generations of drones may be permitted to revel in the luxuries of their fathers. Under socialism we will not reduce produc tion, but on the contrary will in crease it With the farms operated with labor-saving machinery run bv steam or electricity fully one-half of those now engaged in farming could be placed in other field3 of produc tion. TJae trusts have taught, us the lesson of collective ownership of tb.3 means of production and it will not be very long before they will teach us an othert that of the collective ownership of the means of distribution, unless the middle man and wage slave awakes from his lethargy... The wage slave, should face the future with a bright hope. He can free himself if he wilL He has nothing to lose bu5 his chains, and. a world of happiness, peace and plenty to gain. He has cre ated all wealth, therefore, he should own all wealth. . FRED E. BARNARD. Grand Island, Neb. Wild Cat Issues Editor Independent: Since subscrib ing for your paper I can hardly wait from - one week to another for it. I think it the. best paper I have ever read and only wish I was able to have it in the homes of many more of our people so that they might learn the truth about the affairs of our great country as J find it . shown up in The Independent .When I read mine I hand it to some of my-neighbors so that I may get them interested in it. I am anxious to see and hear what you say in regard to the bills intro duced now in congress on the money question allowing the national banks to issue 50 per cent over and above thr, amount of bonds they have deposited Is that not going back to the old wild cat banking system of years ago? If I understand the bill as introduced this is certainly the way in which I would understand it. W. B. ESSICK. North Benton, O. (It is really difficult to guess just what bill will finally become a law, but it is no trick at all to forecasc the nature of the financial legislation if present tendencies are not checked The bankers are determined to have complete control of the issue of all currency, and before they can secure this they must destroy the greenbacks and silver dollars in some way just how, remains to be seen. Yes, the drift of all recent bills is a return to the old wild cat idea, with some modi fications so the blame for trouble can be thrown . upon the government Ed. Ind.)
