SOME BUSINESS FACTS.
A close siudent of business con
ditions, wriiing in a trade maga-
line of price movemenis and chan
ging volume of business, remarks
that "ihe line of demand, which
varies as people are economical or
exiravagani, is rarely more than
ten per cent, above or below nor
Another business expert remark
ed recently that the actual differ
ence In the volume of goods han
dled, or business done, between
boom times and dull times, was
only about 18 percent.
Such Hgures sound incredible
at first, but they are probably near
The difference between good
times and bad limes is greatly ex
aggerated. Certain industries may
be alfecred liighily. Some classes
of merchanis may have their trade
cut In two, but merchants in gen
eral sulfer far less than that.
Even in the present admittedly
serious pit of det)ression, figures
shows that the volume of goods
passing over the counters of retail
stores throughout the country is
almost as great as usual, and in
some cities it is greater. The big
drop is not in volume of goods but
in volume of prices.
The employment situation, too,
is distorted by imagination. From
wide-spread reports of unemploy
ment, one might suppose that no
body has a job-
The fact is that there is concen
trated idleness In certain commu
nities which specialize In certain
industries that happen to be hard
hit, but the big majoriiy of work
ing people are working about as
And, too, there is the great farm
population and the professional
people and nearly all the business
people who are working right
along pretty much as usual.
By the same token, most people
whether busy or idle, imagine they
■re worse off in dull times than
It is not the bulk of business, but
the margin of business, that makes
what we call prosperiiy or depres
sion. The tail may some times
seem to wag the dog, but still the
(ail is not the dog.
THE RUSSIAN COLLAPSE.
Twenty million persons in Rus
sia are on the verge of starvation
and yet there has been no crop fail
ure in that country. The trouble is
that under (he soviet rule the trans
portation system and the currency
system have broken down.
The railroads have been allowed
to go 10 intin and the money issued
by ihe government is worthless.
All trade is now done on a bar
ter basis. A man exchanges some
thing that he has for something
that he wants. There is no credit.
Farmers have more foodstulfs
than they need, but there is no
market for the surplus. People in
the cities and towns are out of
Pood, but they have nothing to give
the fillers in exchange for it.
They are out of work, and even if
they could get work and receive
money for their work, the money
would be worthless and the farm
ers would not take it.
The disaster has been brought
on by the crazy dream of soviet
control of the government and all
government activities. Soviet rule
means that all men are equal and
have an equal voice in the govern-
nrent. Ignorance and incompe
tency are put on the same level at
experience and ability.
The old government in Russia
was corrupt and despotic, and peo
ple suffered. The old government
deserved to die. and this new gov
ernment doesn't deserve to live.
Hundreds of thousands of per
sons are going to starve to death
under before relief can reach them.
There will be • change of some
kind after awhile, and then condi
tions will begin to improve, but
££ wbai ■ fearful price will have been
for a change in government.
MEETING AT BAPTIST CHURCH
