FEAR EXPRESSED OF-AN "
Tour of the '
A BAC'HUjOlt'S REVEIUE.
(Py Frank L. Stanton) - ,
How frail a thing la Love! ..... th lamplight falling
I mean the gaslight) o'er my visions here,
1 hear the voices of the old sweethearts calling,
Without a sigh a tear!
Was H not yonder that a wind-blown blossom '
From orchards by a glorious spring made sweet
Was kissed of Ixive, and left upon her bosom
, Of Love the dream complete.
Pld she not whisper (Wherefore should 1 say it?)
She loved me, and would love me to the last?
(This midnight, with its darkness would betray it;) -
'Tis post! ' "Tis past! Tis past:
And yet and yet! . . . 1 say I do not quiver v
To any pulse to one remembered tone;
And yet and yet! . . . The shadows make me quiver:
i I am aloe alone!
I aay, God's ample world is still about me
His akies, with all their storm and all their bright;
But one loved heart can live its llfo without me:
; The fire is dead . . . Goodnight!)

IT'S THERE GO GET IT
HE United States today is the largest creditor nation on
earth. It has the lion's share of the world's gold. It has
r 3 i i c x
in Ithe disorganized nations of the world. It has a merchant ma
rine. It's dollar today is the standard of value for the world, j
These are a few facta pointed out by the optimists. In spite
of the validity of these facts, the psychology of business in the
United States is bad. Men are talking "bear." Prices have
come down, wages are coming down. Money is tight. Business
' Action, fight if you please, is an antidote for the second set
of conditions. The man who has something to sell can sell, if
he will get out and push his article. Business can be restored
by action and by advertising. A little of the old-time energy
that made fortunees before the war will put things right once
again. The time of the mountain coming to Mahomet may have
been with us for a period but today the mountain is within walk
ing distance if Mahomet will tase his feet off the stove and
hot-foot it out after business. It is there, go and get it.
; ; CITY DWELLERS . -
THE United States is becoming a nation of city dwellers.
The lure of urban life, despite "back to the farm" prop
s , aganda in me past decade, has fastened itself more te
!' naciously on the American population. More than half
of the 1920 population listed by the census bureau, was irr cities
of 2500 or more persons. , ' ' t
Even Oregon, one of the largest states in area, is almost 50
per cent urban in population. Out of 783,389 persons counted
in Oregon, only 1351 more dwell in the country than in the
towns and cities. j
In the past 10 yean- the balance has swung from the farm
side to the city side. In 1910 only 45.8 percent of thrfse living in
the United States were in the towns and cities. The increase
ilv 10 years is 5.6 per cent
' In the flood of folk from the wholesome and productive life
of the farm to the battle of business of, the city may lie the cause
of many of our most vexing economic and social problems today.
It is true that those remaining on the farm must produce in the
proportion that their ranks have been depleted and the ranks of
the city dwellers swelled. More production, better health,
greater contentment and improved general welfare would be
the result if thousands who have gone to the big cities from the !
farms in quest of wealth, luxury and "life, were back following
ine piow. ,
LONDON, Jan. ' 1S.1-(A.V' 1.)-Ap-prehonslona
of n world-wide meiit
control by American parking fimin
were disclosed In a recent roport to
the Moard of Trndo by a sub-committee
of the Standing Committee O'l
"At present, .'the American meat
companies have nearly 60 per cent
of vio beef output from Argpntimv
and Uruguay and about 75 per eeml
of the capacity of me meat plants
built or building In Hruall," the re
port stated. "Moreover, they con
trol nearly one-half of the whole,
trade pt Smlthfleld (the great Lon
don meat market) and they have al
so a solid footing in Canadu and Aus
"Pears as to the extension of their
activities nro put confined to. tho
I'Ulted ' Kingdom, .but are equally
strong in the dominions," it continues.
"The moro they may be able to ex
tend their operations in South Amer
ica, the more they may be able to jit -vert
supplies from reaching tho Uni
ted Kingdom; and the more they are
able to control distribution business
here, the more securely they will have!
the, British consumer la their grip."
Suggestions were made by the com
mittee to restrain, by taxation and by
subsidizing refrigerated shipping com
panies, the expansion of foreign in
terests here, and an inlernntloual In
vestigation was recommedned to go
into tha whole situation with a view
to taking common action.
A rejoiner to the committee's find
ings is made by It. II. Cabell, the
London manager of Armour and
Company, who In an interview with a
Press Association representative, com
plains that none of the American
firms were heard by the committee
and charges that the lntter's report
was compiled "under strong prejudice."
'Several passages in the report
show a clear but very ill-formed an-
jmus against the American firms,"
Cabell states. "Particularly in its re
ference to Argentina. No one would
guess from the report that the Chi
cago packers entered the Argentina
trade at the request, almost at the
entreaties, of the British firms which
had opened up the territory and had
paid heavily for their experience and
were anxious to be bought out."
Mr. Cabell suggests that part of
the supposed animus disclosed In the
report is due to the reluctance of cer
tain British firms to compete with
the "less wasteful and more efficient
methods of their American rivals,"
and he says the only effect .of the re
port must be to raise meat prices all
oyer the United Kingdom. "

DISTRIBUTING THE READJUSTMENT
OWER wages, which are declared by the secretary of the
Oregon Woolgrowers' Association, to be inevitable for
labor in the sheep and wool growing business, must be
expected as a part of the readjustment in every line of business
sopner or later. It is an interesting commentary on the trend of
the times to witness with what success the readjustment in la
bor's compensation is accompanying the drop in prices. '
In the case of the woot men and the cereal farmers, too,
wage reductions are being postponed as long as possible. The
former witnessed a sharp price drop in his market,in May and
the latter about m September. Wages only now are being ad-j
justed to conform to the inevitable. The process is expected to
be peaceable and be met in good spirit by labor.
Readjustment of wages in the manufacturing centers of the
east is attended by far less strife than when war pushed wages
upward. In more than one instance employes' organizations
have volunteered wage reductions as great as 25 per cent. Arbi
tration where wage cuts could not at once be agreed upon has
been effected satisfactorily and quickly in a good many other
Capital, labor, the jobber, middleman, producer, and all
x along the line realize that the readjustment includes all, not a
part. It is a fact to be pointed out with pride that all are getting
together on the idea and that labor, which was perhaps slowest
to be rewarded when prices were mounting, is not the first to
be cut now that things are being revised downward.
Walla Wallans are subscribing to stock for a bridge across
the Columbia between Pasco and Kennew-ick, 60 miles distant.
Pendleton can do" as well by solidly backing the reclamation of
lands under the John Day project which is no farther distant
i.nd means as much or more to this community as the bridge to
Walla Walla. - :
Ireland believes that prohibition there would seriously in
jure Great Britain. The measure of it the United States has ob
tained has not put this nation on the red side of the ledger.

ROME. Jan. 15. (A. P.) A new
investigation is to be under taken to
place the-blame for the disaster to the

nonrrnl favaciocchi, then commander
of the Fourth Arnty Corps was among
those chiefly responsible. Tne gen
eral has petitioned Parliament to re
open the case, says Deputy trano,
writing in the Gtornaie v nana.
General Cavacioccni in nis position
asserts that the Austrains uiu
through the 27th Army Corps com
manded by General Badoglio, now
vaA r the. General Staff, and suc
ceeded in advancing along both
banks of the Isonzo and reaching the
rear of the Fourth Army Corps, com

unable to resist because of Badoglio's
Other cenerals, especially Bonglo
