Borah Denounces Monopoly As Most -Successful Enemy of The New Deal ST. ANTHOXX. Idaho, (*> — Senator William EL Borah called for ih« destrucaon . of aaon&ply Tuesday, denouncing it a» "the mo«c insidious and xrost successful enemy; of the new deal.** FHngicg down the gauntlet to "defenders of • monopoly," the Idaho Senator- told an annual pioneer day audience: "They will have to fight in the open." '.....His address bristled with epi- graoos—^""aionopoUes are economic Hitlers"—-^*the -effect of monopoly if*- to. decrease, if not to destroy, purchasing power"—"th« farmer can never win out on that basis"— "Monopoly ha» no more right to exist than any other form of depredation."* He accused, monopoly of blocking the national recovery efforts, so that tne purchasing power of the farmer and laborer "have been but little increased, if «t all." •"When I discuss the Question of monopoly." he said. "I am accused of .attacking the sew deal" by critics "unwilling or unable to meet the question presented." "Is monopoly and the new deal one and the same thing? "One of the announced pur- poses of th* new deal, in f&ct the basic purpose, was to* increase purchasing posrex. The «££ect of monopoly is to decrease, if not destroy, purchasing power amoas the people. "The most insidious and most successful enemy of the new deal according to its announced purposes, is this power of vast combinations to fix prices^ and to rake off all the gains which may come to the farmers, the producers or tb« laborers. ""The defenders of monopoly will not be permitted to hide behind the new deal. They will have to fight in the open!** 'Declaring that purchasing power must be restored to the great mass of people, the Senator said one of the things "vrhitih stands most in the way of the restoration of purchasing powers to the masses is monopoly, the power to fir unjust and exorbitant prices." "After a heroic effort of months upon the part of the government; the purchasing power of the farmers and the purchasing power of the laborer save been but little increased, if at all," he said. "Figures show conclusively that while there has been some jrfs* in prices of farm eoiajru«3lti«s» is every instance where that has taken place, the rise in the prices of things whicn the farmer has to buy has far excelled the rise in th» price of his commodities. "The farmer can never win out on that basis. "Tbis rise is not due to economic forces but is due in a large measure, if not wholly, to the arbitrary, artificial power of monopoly to fix prices, x x x x. ""What under heaven is to be gained by the farmer reducing his production if. after the reduction takes place, he is still the manipulated victim of combines and monopolies? "Some things have been done designed to help tb.e producer and I am in. full sympathy with those things. "But what I object to is leav- in|r in our industrial setup this uncontrolled power which literally manipulates markets and fixes price**, practically making it impossible for the producer even to realize anything: from the government's efforts or from his own efforis."
