The most hopeful thing about it all is that the nation is fi
nancially in better shape than ever before. The. banking system,
thanks to the federal reserve law. is thoroughly sound. There
will be no bank failures. The reserve system provides for an
elasticity never before enjoyed and for safeguards such as the
country did not have in 1907, in 1893 and at other periods of
trial. The times call for conservatism but not for hysteria. A
ship in a fog needs extra lookouts but often the. fog lifts as quick
ly as it came. '

SOME people thought that Harding's election would
mean $3 wheat, the elimination of federal taxes and
other conditions cordering on the millennium in the
business world. They are fast learning their mistake.
Politics is politics and business is business. Successful gov
ernment has considerable to do with successful business and in
dustrial conditions but no political party is the custodian of the
nation's prosperity. What we are getting now might have oc
curred even had the outcome of the election been different,
thouo-h nro leacue men have strone basis for claiming that af
firmation by the people of the Versailles treaty would have had
a reassuring effect on foreign trade, including export saies 01
As to taxes, there can be no reduction. The new administra
tion may be able to shift the burden from certain shoulders to
other shoulders. But the war debt must be paid by rich or poor
or both and that means heavy federal taxation for several years
to come. " The situation, however, is not as bad as some think.
A very large part of the war expense has already been met out
of funds collected by the government during the war and since
that time. It is estimated that nearly half the war cost has been
paid if the loans to foreign countries are exempted. As these
loans are to be repaid they can scarcely be considered as part
of the war expense of this government.
From numerous quarters come predictions of a slow down
during the next year or two. These fears may be realized and
again they may not. The situation has been foreseen and for
months past the banks, working under the federal reserve sys
tem, have been preparing for the new day. These preparations
will serve to lessen the blow and in many cases the storm will
blow oveT without any damage. It is an ill wind that blows no
good. There are those who will profit by conditions that will
injure others. As the dollar increases in value .nrousrn reaui.

N SPITE of forest fires Nature has restocked a good per
cent of the logged and burned-over forest land in western
Oree-on and Washington, according to J. V. Hofmann, Di
rector of the Wind River forest experiment station, who has just
returned to the station near Carson, Washington, after an in
spection trip that took him over many of the larger logging op
erations in Western Washington. ' For several years the forest
service, under Dr. Hofmann's direction, has given much atten
tion to the study of natural Douglas fir reforestation in the
Northwest. He has found that most of the young lir growth
comine in on burned-over areas is not due to seeding up by oc
casional trees spared by the fire, but rather from seed buried in
the duff of the forest floor,
"In the Douglas fir region, the forests produce a heavy seed
crop every two or three years. Rodents collect the seed from
the cones in large quantities and bury them in the duff and fit
ter, wher? they sometimes remian several years, retaining their
vitality until logging lets in the light and warmth of the sun,
when they germinate and produce a new stand of trees, were
statements by Dr. Hofmann
"So uniform is the behavior of the forest land of western
Oregon and Washington after the original stand of timber has
been removed, says Dr. Hofmann, that one can predict with
much certainty whether or noi a new stand will come in and al
so the percentage of species that will be found." On several
occasions the doctor has taken a map of the logging operations
of some company, made a few inquiries about when, the differ
ent areas were logged, whether they had been burned over or
not and if so when and how often, and then marked on the map
his prediction concerning new growth on th various areas. Log
ging superintendents were much surprised on making a field in
vestigation to find how closely the prediction on the map check
ed out on the ground, until Dr. Hofmann explained that the sci
entific principles which made him pretty sure in his predictions
had been studied by the forest service for many years at the ex
periment station.
A reasonable amount of rejoicing is to he expected from
victors in a political contest and should be cheerfully granted
But pretty soon the Hardingites will have to take up a more con.
structive line of action. They have had two weeks in which to
celebrate and people now desire some of the excess prosperity
that was promised immediately after election. Mr. Harding
is taking a well earned vacation in Texas and caught a big fish.
He is next going to Panama. That is his privilege but many be
lieve it would be more instructive If he would hie to Europe and
take a look at those millions of graves with little crosses above
them. There is serious business ahead of the new administra
tion and those gigantic tasks cannot be solved by repetition of
