Whatever merit there may be in such viewJJ one thing doea,r
stand out plainly and unquestioned. T,he exchange situation is
bad and it works against the American producer. It tends to
bring foreign raw products to our shores and it hampers our ex
port business. While foreign exchange stands as at present
there is much truth in the claim that Europe cannot buy. -
Now what could be better for improvement of the exchange
situation than to clear up the peace question Some think that
matter was settled November 2. But really it was not. Europe
is still up in the air. Representatives of 41 nations are assem
bled at Geneva and they do not know what Mr. Harding and his
advisors are going to do. Apparently they are ready to shape
up the league covenant as America desires, but they dont know
what is wanted.
FItOM LOVE S HOME S11UIU3
(By Frank L. Stanton.)
Vheihor In ttar or mnrm. O barque of Lve
Let anchor none b rant!
With the awift winpa of home returning dove.
Fly fast! Fly fast!
When the blown guile, sea-beaten, 'round thee scream.
Fare bravely through the blast:
Think how my heart ia dying for a dream
Fly fast! Fly faat! , ,
For on Life" a strand I walk uncomforted
With panthoma of the past.
Dark ea! give back thy living not thy dead
Love's wings, fly fast!

The new president has the key to the situation and it is to be
devoutly hoped he is doing some hard thinking while on his va
cation. We have had lots of talk about Wilsonism. What we
want now is to know what Hardingiem means. The Wilson
answer to the problem has been rejected. The world now awaits
the Harding solution. The new president will have a wonderful
! opportunity for accomplishing a difficult task. In everv heart
j there should be a prayer that he has the ability and the vision
tnat is needed.
The world must settle its fundamental questions before mi
nor problems can be worked out. The law of supply and de
mand works but its operations depend upon what the world has
ahead of it. Temporary expedients may suffice for a time but
they are not of great value and sometimes produce more harm
FUNDAMENTAL QUESTIONS MUST BE SETTLED FIRST
THERE are various theories about the decline in the price
of wheat and the remedy therefor. Some attribute the
beating down of the price to manipulation at Chicago
and they look for a bull movement to follow. There are many
who want an embargo on Canadian wheat. Others assert that
wheat is lower in this country than in any otheY country and say
that while wheat is based on the export price an embargo would
not have the effect desired.
It is all a mooted question with many angles to it Much of
the talk is influenced by polities' on both sides. One side of the
political angle is reflected by the following from the St. Louis
Tost Dispatch : . .
The United States senate won its fight with the president. It defeated rati
fication of the peace treaty. But the cost of that victory la already prodigious
and its ultimate cost is Incalculable. The farmers of the United States have al
ready paid out millions for lh senate's "famous victory" and every American
Industry Is now paying for It.
The foregoing may be rejected or accepted, according to
one's personal beliefs. The same is true of the following state
ment by Senator Hitchcock, leader of the administration forces
in the treaty fight; j
"The matter has pnssed out of the realm of Idealism, and is now a vital,
business proposition. We have a great surplus to sell, while people In Eu
ropean countries are starving. Our mines, our farms and our factories are
stocked with the things needed abroad, but our would-be customers cannot buy
"Could the treaty be ratified tomorrow. I believe the psj'chological effect
would be so great that business would start up again and move gradually Into a
busy stride. It is a practical "business proposition not altruistic.
"Something must be done to relieve present conditions in our own coun
try. It Is dangerous for the farmers of the West to have to keep their products
oi practically give them away; with Europe hungry for food and shivering for
clotheas, grain and meat and cotton producers in the United States have no
market for this year's crops
Mrs. Walter Brockman, who owns a large Tanch on Snakt
river between Lewiston and Wallowa will continue to live at
her home in the Snake river canyon although she has rented
her ranch. The wonders of the canyon and the ranch appea.
to her more than does city life. Perhaps she thinks it Would b
easier to superintend her ranch than to keep, up with the whirl
An assault on the British flag when displayed in a legitimate
way in America is an attack on Americanism ; both sides of the
Irish fight have rights that should be respected.
No, the world is not growing worse. There has always been
lots of crime but in ye olden days the star murderer hid not get
so much publicity.
Portland wants to obtain a union station. Be careful or the
railroads may want another measly 30 per cent increase in rates
The United States is not in the league but has more newspa
per men at Geneva than any other country.
"They say" that Christmas parcels should be well wrapped
before they are mailed.
Milton is becoming very metropolitan ; going to have a night
officer hereafter. ' ' .
They say much rain at this time means a mild winter.
