IX TllK LIGHT
(By Frank U Stanton.)
It's a groat old world the winters are chill, but the summer, Jt comes
around, . w
And the warm sun whiskers secrets to the seed that's In the ground;
And though some seasons are weary, there's hope when the storms are
And we'll enter a fairer country and rest in the light at last,
We'll rst In the lisht at last, in the beautiful later light;
We shall kiss our hands to sorrow and whisper a last good night
And storm and striie will be memories that soon shall melt away "
In that light of a beautiful morningthe. light of the later day!

"INTERFERENCE WITH BUSINESS"
US'DER the emergency tariff law now the subject ' of a
fight in the United States senate a tariff on sugar is pro
vided that will mean an increased cost of from $160,000,
000 to $500,000,000 in a single year to the householders of the
country. The senators opposing the measure assert that such
a tariff will mean a price of 16 to 20 cents for sugar if the meas
ure becomes a law. Supporters of the law assert that these fig
ures on cost per pound are too high but they admit that the con
turners will be forced to pay $160,000,000 a year because of the
. This astounding legislation is proposed at a time when
the-e is widespread clamor for prices to come down. Merchants
are advised'to take their lossess. So are the farmers. Labor is
advised that it must not expect a continuance of war time
wages. It is argued that with prices dropping and further de
clines expected in many lines the best course is to let the read
justment process take its natural course. As far as the wheat
' man is concerned this must happen because the price of wheat
is based fundamentally on the export market.
t What, then, is the excuse for taxing the American breakfast
table even $160,000,000 in order to enrich the sugar trust? How
will the farmer feel if he must sell his wheat on the basis of the
world market and yet buy sugar from a protected combine?
How will the worker feel about this "back to normal"! talk if he
finds his sugar bill soaring upward toward the wartime prices?
, . The tariff on sugar is a vicious thing. It means robbing the
multitude to enrich a few. It is not a fair basis of taxation and
it is not sound even if we accept the protective tariff policy as
the true gospel. This is not a sugar raising country and can
never be. Sugar is the product of tropical and semi tropical re
gions. It is vain to try to turn the United States into a sugar

is a scheme to inject politics into business and to do so at a direct

COLLAPSE OF THE ATTACK ON CHARLES M. SCHWAB M
t HE complete collapse of the charges against Charles M.
.Schwab was to have been expected. Hardly any unpre
judiced person would give much t weight to assertions
tJiat a man of the Schwab type took part during the war in an
expense account graft to defraud the crovernment. Neverthe
less, the charges having been made, it was necessary, for Mr.
Schwab's sake, as well as that of the government, that thev be
thoroughly investigated. The investigation has taken place, and
lias resulted in enure exoneration. ,
The unfortunate feature of the proceeding was that Mr.
Schwab should have been compelled to defend his conspicuous
ly patriotic war record. He was one of a large number of emi
rent Americans who gave to their country in the emergency
services that otherwise could not have been bought at any price.
These men contributed to the cause of winning the war execu
tive ability, organizing power of the highest degree at the same
time that they were giving lavishly of their fortunes to finance
war enterprises, and paying huge taxes to care for war expenses,
i Charles M. Schwab was high on the list. His services were
great and his reward was small. Now he has been compelled
to undergo an investigation founded on insinuations that he did
not possess even ordinary honesty. The charges were given the
widest publicity before any sort of investigation had Been made,
tnd the report of exoneration can hardlv travel as far
unfounded and irresponsible accusations which started the mis
It is events of this kind that discourage men of high ability
from undertaking public work. They know that, no matter how
unselfish their motives or how genuine their devotion, none of
them is safe from the calumnies of petty individuals who see an
unworthy purpose in every act. . There should be some way of
