Money scarcely entered the picture at all. , - ' Today that man is without a jol^ and he is down to his last five dollars. Tne landlord has kicked him out of his rented house .and th.e. finance company has taken back the automobile it was,letting him have the use of for certain payments every mQnth. Today that man OWNS, just as much as he did five years ago; namely, five dollars in his pocket and the clothes on his back. But five years ago hp was prosperous ahd today he is facing starvation. Why? Simply because a state of IMbalance between values exists that makes it impossible now for him. to exchange his labor for the things he needs and wants. It is his job that has vanished, not the money. It is the exchange that has vani.shed, not the medium of e.vchange. THE^ LA^T WORD IN 'TECHNOCRACY UTILITIES MERCHANDISING L.AW. The stale .senate yesterday voted down 11 proposHl to repeal what is known ns the utilities .merchandising law, a .statute enacted two yours ago prohibiting public .utilities com- pnjiics in Kansas from selling merchandise such as stove.i refrigerar all show forth, tny praise, ^^j.,^ electric appliances, clcsirest ,not sacrifice ;_else ^^^^ ^^^^^^^ ^ ^^^^^ I give it.—Psalm 51:15-16. \ "MORE MONEY" i It i.s liot hard to understand tlie peisi.sicnt demand in limesj like thcsi- lor "more money," tor .some •proHiiim of monetary inflation. The whole problem, from the individual .st;;ncipoiht. centers in the fact that wf haven't enough money; if we had more money, everything would be all right. It is not suiprisinB, per- hai)s, that we should wish to apply to national economicsthe thing that would be a .solution to our individual problem. .Unfortunately that can"t be done. Money economics is one of. the most involved and difficult problems that one can set _ his mind to, but it might help keep our thoughts on the subject clear if we would the time honored definition of money, "a medium of ex- Change,"—if we would not forget that: prosperity depends upon the ' exchange of goods and commodities, not - upon the medium tlirougli which that exchange is facilitated. -There Ls more money in the Uiii- ted states today than there was five years ago. The reason it isn't doing anybody any good lies in the fact i that relative values of commodities and services have been thrown out of balance .so badly that their exchange Is almost impo.ssible. It i.s. the "excliange,".npt the "me- fliiim," that gone haywire. Five ago a farmer coitld a lliou.snnd bushels of wheat and exchange it for an automobile. TlKit made busines.s. That made IJrospority for the farmer as f'ell as the automobile manufacturer and all his employees. • But the prosperity was created not because a thousand dollars, in currency or bank credit existed in Uip land, but because the relative values of wheat and automobiles werc; sufficiently on a par to malce pcssifale the exchange of one for the other. Today the farmer cannot traide a ; thousand bu.shels of wheat for an ; autothobile, and that makes nc.s-s .iiiid-for the farmer, the mah- ufactm-er, and the unemployed who .shoujd be working in the automobile factory but are not. Is it because a thousand dollars in Currency or bank credit is not available? Of not. It is because the value of wlieat with relation to the value of aiitomobiles has dropped td the poiiit where one can no longer be exchanged for the other. The com|)lete story of the depres- sioii is contained in this one cxam- l)le plus the 10 milliorf.variations of it that could be named. It is the exchange itself that has vanished, not the medium of exchange. As to how to restore the balance of relative values that will make ex• change possible again—that is another question, and one which has not yet been satisfactorily answered by the advocates of cun'ency inflation. .sure from organized independent dealers in .same commodities who maintained that the • utilities ccmpanies wore cheating them out of their fair share of this business tiirough unfair jiractices. They wore charged with selling at an .actual less and then charging that loss up to operating costs in other department.^:. How many of the charges were true we do not know. But wo do know that the chief results 6f the law as it has operated the past two years have been: to bring an in crease of business to the independent hardware and appliance dealers of exactly zero; to shift a portion of it to the mail order houses; to throw out of jobs two or three thousand^ utilities salesmen and-sei-vice men; to sock the ultimate consumer with higher prices,^ stiffcr terms, and •poorer service. The senate would have done well to repeal this stupid law. We hold no brief for public utilities Companies, but neither do we hold any brief for legislat;ion designed to help any group of business men in the st^te at the expense of the ultimate con.sumer. The sooner government quits meddling in and restricts its activities to governing, the better we'll be. There are ways and ways of saj» ihg money. One of the poorest ^e can think of right now is to frost your hands shoveling snow for an hour wlien ,some poor devil without a cent in his pocket or' a sack of flour in his house lias offered to do it for you for a quarter. If you have tlio quarter, for heaven's sake give it to him and let him work!

The old Robeson wagon shop building, has been moved to the vacant ^ot on West street, opposite Ellis^s livery stable.

Mrs. Squire Young met with quite a serious accident last Fi'iday when coming to town. The buggy in whicli she was riding was overturned and sh? was thrown upon the frozen ground, breaking the shoulder blade and suffering internal Injiiries.

He was not the kind who .saved money and accumulated property; he tlldn't even keep a bank account. But that ' year lie ;was prosperous. He had an automobilo. ho had a good home to live.In, he had all the good food he wnnied; he wore good clothes, he could go to the picture show whenever he liked, he could take his wife on a week's vacation in the summer. He didn't own a thing: he rented his Jiouse/ and furniture, his automobile belonged to the pany. He seldom had even as much afi a five dollar bill in his pocket. ! Each week ho cashed his pay check and. used it to pay the bills contracted the week before.. But in spite of the fact that he i owned nothing and seldom had morfe than five dollars Jn his pocket, be wa^ prosperous. Why? Simply because a state of AMAZING. Emporia Gazette: The annoimce- ment from President-elect Roosevelt Of his plan of reconstruction, for the United States is the most amazing declaration that has been made by a man in the first rank of American politics since the declaration of war by Woodrow Wilson. It comprehends a planned program for American industrial, agricultural and social life; a revolutionary program which will put under and into government a changing purpose tliat shall move our world. A thousand corollaries flow from the Rooseveltian announcement. Government control and probably ownership of all water-power and incidentally electrical power. ' Government control of floods and hence of agricultiu-e. Government reforestation. Government entering into the intimate life of the people to say upon which lands crops profitably may be planted and which must lie fallow. It is cheap to criticize this change by challenging it as .socialism yet it is state capitalism and in the embryo of the plan is a complete about face of the American attitude toward government. Liberty and individualism are to be suljriierged in the inteiest of the larger jiustice and the 'greater good to the greater number. Bia more amazing than plap_ it self is that such a pronounclanien- to could be made by the presidentr elect of the United ?tates four weeks before his inauguration without causing a market slump unprecedented in our history. The market Is dead. It cannot rise or fall or be galvanized by any stimiiliis; that also is terrifying as well as a.stound- ing. Amazement crashes upon amazement in these -strange days. Chicago—This is the story of a man without a jail. He is Joe Lousanne. G8. of Clarendon Hills, fined for striking a tax collector. • The fine wasn't paid, but thej- couldn't put Joe in jail at Clarendon Hills because the village hasn't any. So tlie slieriff at Wheaton was asked to take care of Joe, but he declined, saying he had too many boarders already. Downers Grove was asked to lend its jail, but refireed. Hinsdale agreed to take Joe as a temporary proposition, but changed the offer when it was learned his commitment papers were not in order. So Hlnstiale sent him back home. "^CARLYLE Feb. 6.—J. C.
