BRADST BEET'S REVIEW

Europe to going to call for. all our
surplus raw materials and our own
plans will require no small amounts
according to this authority. Fur
ther this review states:
"Lower prices may come, not all
of them at once, by the way and may
delay but sho t' 1 not rsdcaily Inter
fere with the processes of proper re
flinatment. While war inflation
may have been responsible for some
ot the present high prices, the lat
ter in the last analysis merely spells
scarcity, which it should be our work
to remove, and in removing make
business friends who will stick and
customers who will come again. No
headlong break in domestic prices
seems probable with the purchasing
power of our people so high; supply
and demand conditions what they
are; stocks of goods outside ot gov
ernment hands not, burdensome;
those in government control large
perhaps, but promising to be liqui
dated conservatively; iredit condi
tions, as reflected In failure ro..nd;
the farms of the country uch irises
if vpiilth. and the outside world's
needs so great It really seems cer
tain that the people and the country
that have done so much in the past
tour years will not falter now that
peace has come and 'business as us
ual is again to be the watchword.
"While a certain amount of the
buoyancy with which the victory of
the allies was greeted has disappear
ed, and readjustments from a war to
a peace basis in Industry have made
for a good deal of uncertainty, due
mainly to the question of the future
of prices and the disposition of un
seeded war supplies, there seems to
be no good reason for taking counsel
of our fears as to what Is to happen
after peace terms are signed. Much
weighty talk of problems to be solved
appears In the papers, but unless
all past experience Is at fault, most
of the problems arising are very sim
ilar to those encountered In other
periods of readjustment following
- widespread hostilities, if the re
sult had been different and Ger
many had won, there might have
been good reasons for a rast deal of
worry. But dvilixatlon has Won.
"We believe that a big potential
demand for goods exists, at a price,
and It la known that there Is and will
be a tremendous demand for food

terlals for clothing and shelter and
Implements of agriculture will prob
ably be badly needed. The United
States having suffered the least ot
all the belligerents should be In a
position to supply these demands.
"Fears ot unemployment ot the
masses should be considered with
the known fact In view that Immi
gration, which should have given us
5,000,000 persons In the past four
years, has been almost at a stand
still. Furthermore, we are not euro
that our whole army Is coming home
much before a Tear from now. War
taxes are a source ot apprehension
but these too should be looked at In
the light ot the fact that taxation In
this country has not assumed the all-
prevading character Imparted to it
In Europe by centuries ot custom and
precedent. Unless most signs tail,
the possibilities ot future state con
trol. Interference or regulation are
not so great as seemed certain when
we were In the full stress of war."

PUBLIC OPINION AND WILSON
1 flt the Churches
By James A. B. Scherer
Lately I have been reading President Wilson's speeches. They Il
lustrate vividly the power ot public opinion, which the president many
timee has said is the oracle to which public men must listen. So great
la his respect for this oracle that when public opinion has unmistakably
rendered Its verdict he has not failed to reverse his own opinions on the
most Important questions of the day. as the following citations will show:

AojtUAt 37, 1917. Itety to the
Pope's IVace Proposal: "The ob
ject of this war Is to deliver the
free peoples of the world from the
menace and the actual power of a
vast military establishment, con
trolled by an Irresponsible govern
ment, which, having secretly
planned to dominate the world,
proceeded to carry the plan out
without regard either to the sacre4
obligations of treaty, or the long
established practices and long
cherished principles of interna
tional action and honor; which
chose Its own time for the war;
delivered Its blow fiercely and sud
denly; stopped at no barrier, ei
ther ot law or ot mercy; swept a
whole continent within the tide of
blood not the blood of soldiers
only, but the blood of innocent
women and children also, and ot
the helpless poor and now stands
balked, but not defeated, the en
emy of four-fifths of ths world."
