Insull in Athens
HISTORY has given us the picture of Napoleon Bonaparte
standing on the rock of St. Helena, his hands clasped
behind his back, gazing out upon a vacant, silent sea : "mighty
sonambulist of a vanished dream". Napoleon, who had made
and unmade emperors, the nod of whose head had extended
' o denied favor, at whose word nations had leaped to arms,
had become a spent force. His throne was gone, his king
" dom had been wrested fromjiis hands, the magic spell which
;: his name had cast over Europe for two decades was broken.
v Not only was Napoleon crushed, the Napoleonlsm, Caesarisra
halt received its deathwound. True, Kaiser Wilhelm attempt
ed its revival's century later; but the effort failed, sealing
forever, the world hopes, the individual lust for power based
upon armed conquest.
Napoleon at St. Helena finds a counterpart in Samuel
Insull who wanders in self-imposed exile in the distant and
alien city of Athens. Even as Napoleon had sought and at
tained power by force of arms, so Samuel Insull had wrought
success in the field of modern imperialism: business and fi
. nance; and like Napoleon he overreached' himself and the
castle of his dreams fell in dust about him.
Hee is a man whose name held thousands in its spell,
. who had waved a magic wand and conjured wealth in regal
manner, who had nominated politics of a great city and state,
had extended the domain of his power empire Until it cov
ered a vast section of the nation. It was Insull who defended
almost as divinely ordained the organization popularly known
as the power trust, who initiated the campaign of propaganda
designed to anesthetize the public Electricity, gas, transpor
tation, these were the fields in which' his genius for organ
ization flowered. Insull was patron of the arts, and many
shared the bounty of his hand. .
In a sense Insull was caught in the maelstrom of econ-
- omic. forces. When the upsurge came he was in the van. His
past success apparently deluded him; he saw no limit to his
power. The higher the bid in the game he played, the higher
the stakes he posted. When the crash came he was still un-
daunt d and sought wider fields for conquest. When the
swirling current of business reversals grew swifter Insull in
desperation made false moves as have many in similar pre-
: dicaments. Now the heavy hand of the law reaches out to
bring him back for trial like a common felon.
There is nothing much that may happen to Insull now.
t We fancy that it matters little, save to his pride, whether
- he lives in Athens or in Joliet. He is broken. And with him
and Ivar Kreuger and men of such type may we say that
V the epoch of Caesarism in business has come to an end?
y As though the scales had fallen from our eyes we may
now see how we have worshipped big business men just as
- the benighted peoples of past centuries venerated their mili-
tary heroes. Harold J. Laski put it well in an article in the
October "Foreign Affairs":
"The successful business man became the representative
type of civilization. He subdued all the complex ot social
institutions to his purposes. Finance, coal, oil, steel became
empires of -which the sovereignty was unchallenged as that
of Macedon or Rome."
This distortion of values was peculiarly the disease of
Americans. We-scoffed at excellence in the arts and prof es
sions. Education was chained to the chariot of commerce.
" Religion was made innocuous through the bounty of the
wealthy. The administration of government was dominated
by the idea of fostering business. The motive of acquisitive
ness here energized the whole people, and resulted in exploi
tation of domestic resources both natural and human.
The problem of the day therefore is not one merely to
restore a condition which, existed in 1929, but to stabilize a
: condition of wholesome well-being of the whole population,
. in which there may be a healthy balance of, material pros
' perity, intellectual interests and moral idealism. This, it may
; be said in passing, is not a mere matter of politics, of voting
, for one group or another. It is part of the "Zeitgeist", the
- spirit of the age, which is determined by all the mingled
forces which go to make up the general culture of an epoch.
. A Sober Question
HARD TIMES have made the people irritated. They voice
their discontent on any and all occasions. In recent
elections they have .vented their feelings by swatting the
"ins". There is danger that they will similarly express them
. selves against President Hoover.
Suppose Gov: Roosevelt is chosen president. Between No-
. vember and March there will be a period of grave uncertainty.
congress would be called in extra session after March 4th.
It will immediately become a forum of discontent in which
" radical and unsound measures of the most extreme kind will
. " be launched. With such men as Huey Long, Burton Wheeler,
- C. C. Dill posing as spokesmen of the administration legisla
tion almost of revolutionary character may be aeitated.
When a patient is convalescing it is a poor time to change
medicine and to change doctors. Assuredly American business
1 . is in no shape to suffer experimental major operations of the
kind that Huey Long will propose. Recent recessions in busi
ness give support to the thought that it is fear of Roosevelt
success which is causing nresent unsettlement.

Within a short time ria-id meas
ures were taken to enforce super

required that milk be pasteurized,
and all dairy products were placed
under the supervision ot the official
authorities. Ia this way the dis
ease was controlled.
With -purification of the water
supply and general pasteurization
of milk, the number of persons who
contracted typhoid fever was great

"When was the name first used
in that region east of the Rocky
mountains? Trading posts of the
American fur trading companies
existed many years along the Mis
souri, Fort Union and others;
also United States military posts.
It is possible that literature of
that period of our history may yet
reveal some data. General Isaac
I. Stevens, th first governor ot
Washington Territory, was com
missioned in 18SS when coming
west to assume office, to make a
preliminary reconnoissanc for. a
northern route for a railroad to
th coast. He left parties of sur
veyors In Montana for the winter
of 1S51-S4, but as yet examina
tion ot their reports shows aa
mention of that name, although
one of those reports does give a
very clear description of th wind.
Mining first drew population to
Montana in any numbers, begin
ning with 1882-83. Ther was
considerable movement into th
territory then, and merchandise
and supplies were 'packed' from
Columbia river points. A number
ot well known and successful bus

country moved Into and obtained
their commercial start in Mon

why don't we have them? To un

between it and the Cascades, and
north to the SImcoo mountains. Is
low and sandy, covered in the

great deal to do with it; for you
must rememoer that It Is over

to allow the earth to became en

when we hav a breeze from over
these plains it is warm and melts
everything before it. Such a wind
would melt by . warmth, not by

wind, which Is usually the case,
that, on th Blue mountains, from
th height ot 1500 or 2000 feet
upwards, tho snow, althourh
much deeper, always disappears
first, and leaves the hill looking
brown and rrassr. while th i.

it is frequently two or thre days
before th wind reaches th val
ley with its warming influences.
This phenomenon Is very common

only be accounted for on" th
