S. poetoffices, year $2.50 OUGHT THE ACCUMULATION OF GREAT WEALTH TO BE LIMITED! The Spencer News-Herald expresses a hasty lorseback opinion often heard when It says: "We maintain that unequal distribution of •wealth is the main cause of all our troubles. Too -many men have too much, and far, far too many •lave too little, wealth." There should be a limitation to On the contrary, Editor Jaqua of the Humboldl Republican and the Humboldt Independent, remarks: "This paper is not an apologist for great wealth, but common sense tells _ue that without blocks of capital the country would be helpless "Vast enterprises are the product of great wealth looking for profitable investment. The politi- ~c3ans who are trying to incite wrath against capital are doing their country a *great injustice • «uch politicians should be relegated to private word* "indirect'U4 fltit ftll^ill fctiar* byiously meant s«W taiailon." $Jow, ahen, how did it Happen that Xtr. Bennett switched overnight from his Fort' ttodge and- Boone opinions to his Council Bluffs denial? THe Globe-Gazette can reach its own con* iluslons In the light of the guess that .the Fort Jodge and Boone speeches were made Just be-" ore the Insurrection In the House at Washing- on which demonstrated the'Immense unpopular^ ty of sales taxation, while the Council Bluffs speech was made Just afterwards. So if the Globe-Gazette wants the truth, there t ie. And the Globe-Gazette will know without being told that the reporters of the Fort Dodge and Boone speeches were not drawing on their maglnation, any more than Globe-Gazette or other reporters do In like cases. Incidentally the Messenger reporter also said: "Mr. Bennett was opposed to the state Income tax .that was proposed in the Iowa legislature last session, asserting that it merely 'soaked a few' without really giving help to anyone, Which explains why in that session Mr. Bennetl gave lip service to the income tax till the fina; showdown, when he recorded himself againsi allowing the Income tax to come to a vote without the county assessor rider which he knew would kill the bill. Mr. Bennett's record thus reveals him as a trimmer on the sales tax and a false-faced in- come-taxer who hid behind a subterfuge and in the crisis at the last legislative session didn't have the intestinal fortitude to let his real attitude be recorded In a etraight-out vote on a rid- erless income-tax bill. . Topics of the Times Editor Jaqua is quite right, unless, indeed, we ready to abandon the capitalistic system; •and America Is as yet hardly prepared to go "Usat far. There is no halting place between capitalism and communism. A modified form of <BOcialism, in which the state would own and operate the railroads and other public utilities was -formerly urged, but not much is heard of I' now; there ie too much dynamite in it. That i' -would be wasteful, extravagant, and inefficient demonstrated in our own war-time experiment in railroad operation; and, in addition, no one who has studied the question can but be •appalled at the thought of government in a democracy swayed by a vast voting elemem •selfishly influenced. We have enough of that «e3ready. Doubtless most readers would agree offhand •with the News-Herald. Unfortunately few peo- •ple are in a position to profit by the leseone of the past; they never read history, and not one •in a hundred ever so much as reads the title o: v. text on economics. Ignorance in this respec js so general and so profound that people sneei at warnings. "Where ignorance is bliss, 'ti.s Jolly to be wise." Ninety-nine out o£ a hundred people nevei think of themselves as capitalists. Yet they are if they own anything. Every man who owns a •store, a shop, a farm, farm tools, other persona .property which he uses to make a living is a capitalist. In .Russia he would >be classed a. «ame kind, such:-his store or shop, his farm, his tools, ev- slst? erything would be confiscated, his right to vote 'would be annulled, and he himself would foi worked to death in a chain-gang of his fellows that is modern communism. No other kind ha ever .succeeded, as witness the latest in a long iseries of debacles, the Amana community; and -while the Russian experiment has not yet existed long enough for final judgment, the results thus far do not justify hope of ultimate success. There remains only capitalism, the system under which the world has lived from time immemorial, the only system that has ever worked, iprobably the only system that will ever work so long as human nature remains unchanged. And trader modern capitalism it is vastly more important that there be great capitalists than that there be small ones, though by that is by no means meant that small capitalism should not survive; on the contrary, it should be protected and preserved at all costs. Most people think only of capital as money: Tiothing farther from the truth. Capita] is property: the various instruments with which we make goods and earn a living. The printing pre«s on the other side of the room is capital. The goods on the merchant's shelves represent invested capital, and the machines with which ;±hey were made are capital. The farmer's machinery, his horses, his cows, his hogs, his other -•personal property, all are capital. Money is only a medium of exchange. The railroads, the utilities, the great factories are capital. AVithout them modern society could not exist; we should be thrown 'back into the dark ages. Take away the fortunes of Henry Tord and other manufacturers o£ automobiles, and you would ruin not only the great city of tDetrolt but an equal population scattered over • the globe. $o with innumerable other great business enterprises: without them the world would ;go back a thousand years. Again, the only alternative to capitalism is socialism or communism, and neither has ever worked. Nor would limitation of wealth work. Wealth is accumulated capital. The percentage of wealth used for the personal pursuits of enormously rich men is an infinitesimal fraction of their Income; all but this fraction goes into industry or is in other ways applied to support -millions of laborers. Limit wealth, and you au' tomatically limit employment: no greater disas- 't«r could befall the modern world. And, besides -•an attempt to equalize the distribution of wealth would be futile without socialism or communism; it would not last: soon the bulk of the .jwealth would again be in the hands of the few know how to accumulate It. The reason -why, under the capitalistic system, too many too much of wealth, and too many, far too •many, have too little, lies in human nature; and 'there is no way to get around that short of a Plain Talk, Des Moines, is the latest critic of the primary system as the means of minority rule. All because the law permits nomination on 35 per cent of .the vote, provided no candidate receives a higher percentage. And Plain Talk thinks that's minority rule ae compared with rule by 50 ringleaders in a convention. These solemn Jokers will be the death of us yet! \ Within this writer's time there has never been a politician so generally condemned by the newspapers He 'Senator Brookhart. It will be interesting to note in the primary result 'how much figure newspaper influence cuts. It begins to look as if Governor Roosevelt has at last been stopped. Noticeably scarce In the news of the last two weeks have been reports o: new additions to his voting strength. Coming on top of the smashing Smith victory In Massachusetts and the unexpected showing of Smith strength in Pennsylvania, the California swing to Speaker Garner came pretty near to settling the Roosevelt hash. Nothing so difficult to understand as the fia money question. Every generation has to figh it out and settle it all-over again. To go no.fav- tlier hack than a period within the memory o people still living, consider the greenback battle of the 70's and the free silver campaign of 1S96 And now we are faced with new proposals of the Do we still have the stamina to re Opinions of the Editors .£. !3.Sf '.JM'alSiAsau. .*K#5&*V&tff*??£ F .. . -j ..^ ^j ,.- ~T ^ - ^^j^^^* > ^^^t * ^^^ ' ^ TheCotyum N.t 1* <\ POLOdtA— OcCftSoittlly; through Somewhere In low* tOskaloosa Herald.] Little Sioux, Bonaparte, Falrf leid, and Waterloo.

But they told some 'a-wful stories about Ward. First, the estate highway commission had bought him for $500; then for $1,000; next .for .$1600; and finally for two per cent ($28,000) of the gross cost of the proposed paving.

A few weeke 'ago, we mentiohed the kldk* ing ot a feminine stool-pigeon by Edward E. Robinson In Little Caesar,. A movie fan promptly' called our attention to the fact that this gentleman's initial Is not "E" but "G," and that the klcRIng occurred In Smart Money Instead of the production mentioned. In passing, it was hinted that the youhg lady was kicked so hard that she fell on her •face, which was a more 'polite way of eaying just where the action took place— no attempt at poetry, we as- ders to "Stop my paper!" scription — on time!

Arid 'so 1 mistakes and mlstatements constantly creep this column, Just as they do Into into our,"everyday lives, despite our beet efforts: to avoid them. The movie critic's life .Is thus no bed of roses: just when he is'admiring a particularly fine 'bouquet^ he* sticks hte finger on a thorn. O 'Tis (lie Singed Cat That Squeals. Spencer Reporter—AVe are afraid that Long will have rather a difficult time of it in attempting to make the public believe he was framed. Mr. Long is in rather an unenviable situation, and the course he is pursuing does not promise to be of benefit to his case. Wealth Distribution Wouldn't Stick. Humboldt Independent—One of the neighboring newspapers is advocating the distribution of wealth, and that wealth ehould be kept distributed. It would seem that any thinking man should know that such a thing is impossible. Men of higher talents always accumulate money, and other men as surely dissipate it. Here's Political Straw In Wind. Titonka Topic—A number of farmers are receiving nomination papers from Henry Field, seedman and candidate for United States senator. Among the number was Henry Schmidt, vho told the Topic yesterday that he could not find anyone to sign it. All his neighbors, it seems, are backing Brookhart. "Dick" and the Pork Barrel. Sac Sun—Senator Dickinson is opposing the ionstruction of more new postoffice buildings in Iowa, and he has written a Sac City friend that a new building here will have to wait while congress balances the budget. Much as we would like to have our new;, 'building soon, the senator is to be admired fori.'his business-like stand. Turner Xtved-tJp to His Oath. Plain Talk, Des-Sloiries—Governor Turner Insisted on obedience"to.the cattle-testing law. He didn't put it on the statute books, but, finding it there, rightly conceived it his duty to see to it that it was obeyed..ile followed the line of duty, and for that he should.,be praised, not blamed. In Hie Spring the Drunk-Crared Fancy Lightly Turns to Spinning Tops. [E. B. H.'s S. C. J. Book Chat.] Do you feel strange stirrings within you at thte season of the year? If you do, then you will sympathize with the man whom John A. Weaver describes in a poem clipped from the May issue of The Golden Book: DEMENTIA VERNALIS.. . Why, Judge, I. swear to God I- wasn't soused? .. What do I care what that there dumb cop says? Why, sure, I'm fifty-three years old, but say, What does that matter? . . . Judge, It's like I tell you: There was them kids,' yellin' and spinnln' tops, And—just like that, before 1 even thinks, I wants to spin one too. I asts the kid; He acks like I was nuts. And so I grabs one, And winds the string, the way I useta do, And throws it, and—it spins, 1 swear—it spins! The kid is yowlin'—then this cop comes up— My God, Judge—can't you understand? — it's Spring ... RETURNING from a vacation during which favored contribs took turns at Rear Seat driving, .lawn \V. Carey exclaimed— How chastening to^go .away, , Come back and look about you, And note how perfectly o. k. Things got along without you! Which reminds us of an old Advance custom: Whenever anyone lays off or goes away .the rest turn in tooth and nail to show him that lie isn't needed anyhow. As they showed thte writer last fall—plenty! And as they-are planning now to show him next week. Columnists, Colyumlsts, or Collemlsts, They're All a Pain In the Xeck. [Dudley Reid's Valley Jungtion Booster] Of course the "collemists" of the country are not usually really "funny," except as objects of speculation and curiosity; and their "humor" is usually of such dull and artificial character that it becomes "side-splitting" only through the use of a meat-ax. And their mental depth is, as a rule, far this side of the "divine sorrow" that has oftentimes ennobled and illumined the sad heart of genius. The Advance, the Topic, & the Treed Coon [Marshalltown Times-Republican.] The Algona Advance, in Its effort to assist I NE OF THESE DATS WE are agoing to write something on the weighty subject of talkie titles. We have! been intrigued, confused, beguiled, angered, by them for a long 1 time, and something will now have to be done about."It. There Is the present 'offering; The' Impatient Maiden, taken from- the cheap, trashy modern .•novel even more suggestively called The Impatient Virgin—now wha't do you -make of that? Impatient for what, we ask you? At any rate, this te the story of a doctor, believe It or not. We have had Arrowsmlth, ' alias The Doctor, and.now comes The Impatient Maiden. What has all this to do with the price of putty? As is so often the case when lurid sex novels are made over Into talkies, this thing has its moments. .It may not be a pretentious" offering,but It shows the always precise and careful direction of 'James Whale (Waterloo Bridge), and the leading roles are well taken by the youthful Lew Ayree and the effective Mae Clarke. The latter is disillusioned about marriage, through her association with a divorce • lawyer who delicately offers to provide her with a luxurious love-nest. "She loves the young doctor, played with rather a too light touch by Mr. Ayres, but her early views on matrimony, as well as her subsequent actions (purely platonic in the talkies), discourage the young man. Then an appendectomy brings the happy (or unhappy) pair togethe, and the curtain goes down on these- final, words from the heroine, reclining on a hospital cot: "You've .got my appendix; you might as well have the rest of me." Them's harsh /words Mae! .But, really, dearly beloved, it isn't as bad as that. There are some good laughs and some swift action, in The Impatient Maiden, and it is withal, a rather enjoyable, entertainment. After all, this is one of those modest little violets which sometimes outshine the more gorgeous orchids of the cinema. npHE DOUBLE-HEADER at the Is, eVen though the' th« advantage »f thfe resB-oi the AM*.

WEIS, Prop, i Call Monday and Tuesday wae revolutionary change in social organization •which no sane American wants. Tax wealth, and tax It heavily; that is, in our time at least, the only practical solution of .the problem. But do not tax it to the point •where the function of wealth in modern spciety is hampered or destroyed: that would be suicidal. The world, as at present organized, must *iave great private accumulations of wealth to keep going; and however desirable it might be 'in half-baked theory to dissolve swollen fortunes and attempt equalization of wealth, the simple ifact Is that no way to do it safely, even for the •fceneficiaries, and to make it stick, has ever been found. THE TRUTH CONCEItXlNfi BENNETT ANU STATE SALES TAXATION Recently the Mason City Globe-Gazette, which iavors Bennett, the anti-Income taxer, for lieutenant governor, said: "The newspapers which have been broadcast- 'ing the report that Senator Bennett is in favor of a sales tax should give equal or superior •prominence to the truth. If they wish they may draw upon an address by the Mapleton man at "Council Bluffs. He expressed definite opposition -to a sales tax and predicted that the next legis- 3ature 'will never pass such a measure.' Senator Bennett went on to denounce 'that faction in 'Iowa which seeks to avoid real tax revision by •.suggesting the idea of a sales tax'." Well, the Advance has heretofore broadcast ."nothing- relative to Bennett and the sales tax, iffout at least two newspapers did do a little re- 3>ortorial broadcasting, and what they broadcast may interest, if not, at least mildly, astonish, the 5<3Iobe-Gazette. Some weeks ago Senator Bennett spoke at .'Port Dodge, and a Messenger reporter quoted as follows: "I feel that we shall work out In 'Iowa an honest and fair taxation system, probably incorporating many features of the sales tax." At about the same time Mr. Bennett **poke at Boone, and in the Des Moines Regls- •-ter he was quoted as saying: -"The sound solution [of the state tax problem] is to give our rural schools a, reasonable measure, of state as- wsistajice. to be derived from state revenues sthrough some sensible form of indirect tax that will share equally." ID this reference the the nomination of Clark for lieutenant governor criticises. the Titonka Topic for referring to Clark as a "utility attorney," It denies that Olark has ever 'been attorney for the utilities' md then proceeds to copy the method of discredit on which it condemns the Topic, asking why "the wealthy newspapers" are supporting Bennett; among these "malefactors of great wealth" naming the Times-Republican and the Mason City G-lobe-Gazette. Why the Advance fails to include the Cedar Rapids Gazette, of Mr. Clark's home town, which Is opposing him for reasons assumedly satisfactory, is not clear. Surely the Gazette is 'to be classed among these newspapers of "great wealth" and ultimate wickedness. We certainly wish it might be so and that we could see and finger some of the wealth the Advance knows more about than the parties of the first part. Like the colored person who, when requested to change a $20 bill, though unable to accommodate, the newspapers listed will be quick to "thank for the compliment." But how about the Advance, rolling, as it-were, in wealth-and prosperity, supporting Mr. Clark? The rumor runs that the Advance belongs in the high brackets favored by its candidate—since he went over. The Times-Republican has said a good word or two for Mr. Bennett because it considers him very much preferable to Mr. Clark as lieutenant governor; because Mr. Bennett does not appear ,to be the candidate of a group, obsessed with desire to soak the state with a state income, tax added to the severity with which the federal government is to increase tax payments and abolish exemptions. That is one reason. Another might be found possibly in the local political repute of the two candidates. Mr. Bennett so far as we have been able to learn, has no1 been refused a delegateship to a home convention by the voters of his own home precinct. If the Topic accused Mr. Clark of being a utility attorney wrongfully, it isn't fair politics though why an attorney should not take a fee from a utility as honestly as from one of the consumers of utility products isn't clear. A) that the difference 'between that and the unfounded and horrible accusation that these newspapers are "wealthy," and In consequence Mr Bennett is one of these iniquitlous "tools, 1 seems to belong in the same category. It reminds somewhat of the Dutchman who chased the coon up a small tree and climbed after it. Finally he 'had the animal out on a limb where it could go no farther. Then it squealed Said the Dutchman: "I know vat is der matter mit you, Mr. Coon. You're, scared!'' IN WARD BARNES' braJn-teaser last week, Mr. Robinson, Mr. Smith, and Mr. Jones are passengers on a train, and Robinson, Smith, and Jones (not "Mr.") are brakeman, fireman, and engineer, "not respectively." Mr. Robinson lives in Detroit; one of the other two "Misters" is the brakeman's neighbor half way between Detroit and Chicago; the other passenger lives ,in Chicago; the brakeman's neighbor earns exactly three times (no fractions) as much as he does; Mr. Jones earns $5, 000 a year; Smith beat the fireman at billiards; the Chicago passenger's name and the brakeman's are the same. What is the engineer's name? — Well, here's the answer, according to Ward: Mr. Robinson lives at Detroit; Mr. Jones earns $5,000 a year ["$2,000" last week was a mistake], which is not exactly divisible by three, so he is not the brakeman's neighbor and must live in Chicago; there-. fore Mr. Smith is the neighbor. Now Smith beat the fireman, so Smith is either the engineer or the brakeman. But the Chicago passenger and the brakeman 'have the same name, so the bwkeman's name is Jones and the engineer's is 3mlth. Q. E, D. . i i . , "SOME FIGHTING EDITOR down on the Reservation called Dudley Reid, of the Valley Junction Booster, a "nut," whereupon Dudley retorted with the following atrocious lines — Well, a nut is worth-while in all manner of clime, Tho' the shell be a thick or a thin; And but onpe you break through the old hull from without, There is goodness and sweetness within.
