THE SWEPT HOUSE
(By Dr. William E. Barton)
THE age in which we live has great faith in legislation.
There was a time when we sought to save men from drunk
ard's graves by moral suasion ; now we have a prohibitory
amendment For that amendment I thank God I do not see how
any sane man can know the curse of strong drink and not be a
fanatic in his opposition to it. I'm not a fanatic ; I am almost sin
fully reasonable about it I believe in all laws that will make it
easy to do right and difficult to do wrong.
But I know very well that no such law will in tself solve our
problems. The only effectual and permanent way to make men
msber is to strengthen their moral nature. That is the only way
to make anybody good;
All the legislation since Hammurabi and Moses will not
make a man good ; it can only make it a little harder for him to
be bad, and a little safer for his neighbor.
When we have passed our good laws, we have only begun
our duty. We have still to educate and strengthen and help to
create a moral purpose and a righteous standard of living.
There is an odd arable in the New Testament about an un
clean spirit cast -out which wanders about homeless for a while,
and then comes back and brings seven worse spirits to live in the
sweat and earaished house. .
That is the storv of moral reactions the world over. It has
happened a million times in the social life of the race. Reforms
io not etay reformed unless they get a righteous sentiment be
We need to fill up human life with so much that is good that
there shall be less room for the spirits of evil purposes and
Casting out evil spirits is well enough in its way, and sweep
ing the house is good ; but after the housecleaning there is some
thing to be done to make iife positive, strong and sweet.
A QUESTION OF COMMON SENSE
MOST people are strongly of the impression that the public
service commission did not get to the bottom of the facts
in the investigation made prior to the granting of the big
rate increase in Oregon. A point involved pertains to the re
lationship f the Pacific States company to the parent organiza
tion, the Bell system, and the justice of charges imposed by the
larger company upon its western subsidiary.
In an editorial yesterday the Oregon Journal discussed the
. subject at length. Following is a significant extract from the
Journal article: -
The parent company dots not permit local companies to own certain devices,
tut compels them to pay rentals on their use. Here is a statement from the
compan) 12 report: '
According to the terms of the contract, the American Telephone & Tele
graph company provides f4jr each of the licensee associated companies:
1 Telephone transmitters and receivers, with (nduction coils', including a
surplus supply to cover current demands.
2 Jiisnts under all patents owned or controlled by the American Tele-
.l.-one & Telegraph company, covering use of telephonic devices, apparatus,
methods and systems. -
1 Advice and assistance in the financing necessary in order to develop
and enlarge its plant ' '
That M to say, the parent company permits no outside ownership of certain
devices or patents or appliances, even by its own subsidiary companies. It
gathers In and holds fast to every instrument that can aid in giving it com
plete control of the phone service of a nation. It has one-subsidiary company
engaged in manufacturing telephonic appliances and from that company, the
"Western Electric, the parent company and its subsidiaries bought during 1920,
aooordlng to the report, 1 H.0t0,u0 worth of telephone supplies. Through
this subsidiary, of hose stock it own 7 per cent, the parent company made
a profit on the manufacture, on the sale and on the purchase of every elec-;
tiioal device and, in addition, makes a profit on the rental of such devices as
It refuses to permit it subsidiary companies to own, and on the use of which
It exact a rental charge. ' ; '
Under such an arrangement it is not Surprising the Pacific
states company was able to make a plea of poverty. It could
make such a plea most any time, no matter how high its rates
might be. The opportunity for juggling is unlimitet.
To get at the full truth regarding the telephone situation
vould require a national rather than a state investigation. But
common sense indicates that it was unnecessary to advance
rates at this time. Prices for material and labor are on the de
cline and the Bell system, according to its own published report,
made a wonderful financial showing in 1920. The system
teamed over fifty million dollars net and set aside a tremendous
eum for depreciation. The boast is made that telephone securi
ties occupy a remarkably high position in the market.
In view of these facts it is scarcely necessary to have a
'Philadelphia lawyer" to know that it is unjust to allow the
company to increase its Oregon rates from 30 per cent and in
some instances as Wgh as 200 per cent.
If we are to bet back to "normalcy" let the Bell system fol
low the trend of the time's.
In their campaign for the Columbia basin project the peo
ple of Washington have used a total of $ib7,vuu. ui mis am
ount the legislature several years ago voted $100,000 for a sur
-v and this Year the legislature voted $50,000 which is largely
roinjr for promotion purposes. In addition a private fund of
f 17.000 was raided to assist the campaign. The Washington
people have faith in their state and believe in developing its re-
luturces. j,, ' '
