Possibly 'tliis could Best-be accomplished through currency inflation. But it should always be kept clearly' in-mind that while the simple process of making money cheaper and more plentiful will increase tlie (lebt- ' paying power of those wlio arc able to get possessidri of a projwi'Hbiiate share of ilie depreciated currency, the buying power, of consumers would not be generally incfarise'd and for many might b'e radically decreased. GHtitpn Galdwell, in a letter to a St. Louis'.paper, .reprinted .in part by the Courier'News, recently suggested that a' rtiore direct and less dSrigeMius solution of the/debt problem might be had by arbitrarily halving all hio'hdy debts. That sounds .like confiscation, and so-it is, but it is--no more so than would be the arbitrary, halving of Ihc value of the dollar; -and might very possibly prove a more bitectivc cure for our troubles. At!'least it would hot cut into the buying' power of the farmer's, the . wage .earner's and the salaried \yorker's dollar, which currency infl.l- iioii undoubtedly would. Gottbri growers haw; been complain- ih'g that the present increased price of cotton benefits'them little if at all - becanse the prices of things they must buy have'risen, as tnuch ov more. Inflation of• the : currency would give them - hlore of the same thing, the rise so - far experienced in cotton and other '• prices : is very, largely the result of de."- preciation'ln. the value of the Ameri^1 can dollar : following abandonment of ^"- the gold .standard. Further deprccia- ','.'.. tion of .the foliar, by another method— " " currency inflation—would undoubtedly '. result in a further rise in the price of , cotton. It wj'iid inevitably CJUIEC prices of other' cohimodities to advance proportionately, however, ;ind thus the - net gain to- : the farmer would be cou- •;_ fined to an |a'3ing of his debt problem. And even that gain might be nullified by the curtailment of normal consumption as a result of commodity prices vising more rapidly than the wages and salaries of consumers. A Model For Real Liquor Control KcpcuJ of Hie 18th amendment is likely to give our capacity for providing ourselves with decent government one of the most revealing tests it has ever had. When you look over the various liquor control schemes Unit have been suggested, you lind that they all share one factor; c;icii one depends for its success on an honest, iifl'idenl, alert and intelligent set of officials to enforce. Here's a sample: The liijuor control law of unu of the Canadian provinces, which provides for retail stores where liquor is sold in packages, has one extremely sensible provision. No storekeeper is supposed to sell liquor to confirmed drunkards, to. men who are prone to spend an undue proportion of their earnings oil booze or to characters who are apt to make public nuisances of themselves when in their cups. » * » The liqiior control commission checks up on its storekeepers very easily. It simply scans the police records for their districts. If any district shows a rise in drunkenness, ;i spread of "poverty, iin increase in crimes, or any similar symptom indicating that too much liquor is beiiitf sold there, the license of the storekeeper in that district is revoked forthwith. Every Storekeeper knows that he will be out of a job if he fails to use good judgment in making his sales. Every storekeeper, consequently, has the best of incentives for running his place as it pught to be run. Now this is almost a fool-proof scheme, well worth copying in the United States. As much as any such- plan can, it makes social considerations paramodnt in its handling of the liquor traffic. * . • But no one needs to Iliink about 'it very long to realize that it would be no gootl whatever,if its supervision and enforcement werii p iji Ihc luinds. of political hacks whose firdl loyalty was to the machine which gave them their jobs. Let a Tammany, a Vare machine or any similar outfit pick your commission, and your fool-proof plan is as full of holes as a screen door. And the same thing is true of any liquor control scheme that can jwssibly be devised. All of them will rest, ultimately, on the local government unit. They will ^ive our ability to govern buriclvcs an acid test. —Bruce Cation.
