"PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY
" WM. C. HAMMER, EDITOR
The speech made in New York re
cently by Hon. Nicholas Longworth
was severe in its arraignment of the
Democratic party. According to an
assertion in his speech "The American
people under the administration are
riding hell-bent to bankruptcy and
paying for their privilege with a war
tax. Their boasted prosperity has
not come. Want and misery have pre
vailed in the land. Some industries,
it is true, are prosperous, but they
are industries which are not supply
ins; the. American nv'rket, but the mar
kets of the warring countries of
Mr. l,o;-.gworths assertions are not
borne out by present business condi
'.i in:-. The fads and figures show that
the buriness cf the country is flourish
ing under the present administration
as' it never did under the Republican
rule. The Philadelphia Record says:
"If vic.vo cf a Democrat on sucii
a subject may be considered prejudiced
one should consult the trade journals,
which arc supposed ti contain the un
varnished truth. Instead of the
United States 'riding hell-bent to
bankruptcy' it is flourishing as it nev
er did under a Republican regime, if
one mav believe the reports of bank
clearings and the news of remarkable
activity in nearly every industry. This
is not due to war orders, but to the ,
splendid crops, and the steady devel
opmcnt of our unparalleled resources."

finished goods are not in normal de
mand. There is a broad general im
provement, the point has been reach
ed where the fear of not being able
to get deliveries is stimulating pur
chases and prices are advancing in
many lines to the best figure realized
in recent years. The earnings of the
United States Steel Corporation for
the third quarter of 1915 were the
largest for any -quarter in several
years. New capital has begun to go
into the steel industr'i some of the
important companies are undergoing
reorganizanation, and capacity is be
ing increased considerably. Attention
is given to this elsewhere.
"Current railway earnings and bank
clearings aro now comparing with
the subnormal figures of a year ago,
and show heavy gains, for traffic and
trade a year ago were about as poor
as could be. Allowance must be made
for extraordinary activity in certain
lines, notably automobiles and war
materials, but the general merchan
dise movement is much freer, and
more confidence is manifested in com
mercial and industrial circles than at
any time since the outbreak of the
war. The figures for idle cars have
taken a sudden drop, and complaints
of car shortage, congestion of traffic
and labor shortage arc becoming fre
quent. Business is not booming in
all "lines. Large construction work is
still below what it should be in normal
times in this growing country, but the
amount of building of the smaller
class makes a good showing. The
available supply of labor is so fully
employed that the situation is on the
verge of being critical. Food supplies
promise to be abundant and moderate
in price for the coming year, and the
outlook for general comfort and pros
perity in the United States is at pres
1 y the National City Rank, one of the
largest b inking institutions in the
country. This can be com. hVred un
prejudiced and an unpolitical authori
tv. We submit this as an answer to
T.oc.gwo rili's assertion.
"T'.i.i outstanding feature of the I
buskers situation in October has been

season for fall trade came on thc;
country would swing into a broad ;

peotri'ion has b-r-n rwil'scd. Every j
part cf the country now sends good
reports and the eor.trn.'t they make
with the condition? of a year ago is
calculated to inspire the most pro- i
