ONE OBJECT ACCOMPLISHED The News, on Monday, suggested two subjects upon which the people of Springfield ought to take decided stand. One matter that of the lumber freight rates has has re ceived the attention of the two commercial organizations, and resolutions of similar tenor have been adopted by both. The result is good not so good as if a single author itative statement from the wholo town had gone forth, yet satisfying that the people, whether of this organization or that, look with a single purpose to the benefit of the town. . The other question is still open, and is one that will re quire the greatest amount of careful study and the best sort of united action. That subject is the matter of providing a market for the products raised in the vicinity of Springfield. A canvas of the town has shown a divided opinion as to the feasibility of a public market. Some favor and some oppose. Permit us to suggest a modification of this public market idea. To get the matter before the house for discussion, let us propose that some agent of the merchants and fanners be selected, for the purpose of maintaining a central office in Springfield for the dissemination of information as to possible markets. Let this agent make the rounds of the stores in the afternoon and ascertain what farm products are going to be required for the next day. That evening, let him call up the farmer members of the association and place these orders, dividing up thp large orders if it seems advisable, or bunching the small ones to prevent making several fanners come in with produce when one could make the delivery. Such an agent Tvould soon gather a large amount of in formation as to the available food supplies of the surrounding territory, and he would be able to advise producers when enough of any supply is available to make up large shipments to other markets if the local market cannot take all that is - offered. . .. Some such a plan as this would save the farmer the necesistv of snendinir half a day or more In town sellinc his goods in small quantities; it would save him coming in with cabbages when, the cabbage market was glutted, and tell him ."Whenhe could sell his carrots. Tho nlnn RiiPTrpRtprl nnntpninlntps nn si front, tifilri n fifilnrv -. " oo -i a i'" whatever seems a proper figure rather than the handling of goods on a commission basis, In order to facilitate opera tions. The agent need not handle the produce at all his work would be to inform a grower that a given dealer can use at a certain time a given amount of something the grower has for sale. This plan is not one that must be accepted or rejected as a whole. It is offered simply as a means of meeting some . of the objections to the general public market, and at the 'same time provide that market for products which every farm ing community has a right to ask of its nearest town. COST OF GOVERNMENT The Administration calculates that the Government should spend about one and a quarter billion dollars next year, or nearly double what it was spending ten years ago another notice that government steadily grows more expensive. To govern the world before the great war probably cost twenty billion dollars a year. The Statistical Abstract tab ulates expenditures of seventy governments, whose subjects numbering one billion six hundred and odd millions vir tually make up the world's population. Before the war these governments spent over thirteen billion dollars a year. But this does not Include expenditures of American states, coun ties and cities, which must now run well toward two billion dollars a year. It does not Include expenditures of cities any where, nor of many other small political units. Quite likely the total would reach twenty billions. On a peace basis, the United States and Germany appear to be the most expensively governed counties in the world. Our total, when the new budget is adopted, will be within hailing distance of three billions. Expenditures of the German Empire, the German states and the colonies amounted to near?. )y two and a half billions. But the German states operate railroads, telephones and other public utilities, which swell both revenue and expenditure, whereas our expenditures arc nearly all for government pure and simple or Impure and complicated, if you like it that way better. If we took our total at three billions and the world's total at twenty the latter, of course, being only the nidest sort of guess It would cost one-sixth as much to govern a hundred million people Ip the United States as to govern a billion and a" half peoplejn the remainder of the world. As to the national budget, the annoying feature is not its size, but the suspicion, based on the opinion of those who speak witli most authority, that It Involves a great deal of waste. Everybody In the country, except tho statesmen at ashWington, would like to know how well grounded that sus picion Is. It Is easy to get the Government to Investigate , everything else, but practically Impossible to get It to invest!- gate Itself. Saturday Evening Post. with America If alio thought she could take from us by forco any thing Bho needed, a tiling which alio could do ns easily as an efficient thug lifts a watch and wallet from a fat millionaire, unworthy heir of virile grandslrcs. Nover will Great Britain, Russia, Germany or .lapaivtarbltrate a vital dispute with Amer ica if thoy havo power 16 dlspqiiao with arbitration and to sninah us to our knees with a sudden blow. Arbitration without preparedness for Bolf-dofoiiBo is ridi culous it la indecdt a contradiction in ; tornia. A sacred agree ment resulting from solemn arbitration Ib certainly of far greater Value than any mero prospect of such arbitration, for It Is In fact tho renlizaton of tho most sanguno hopes of tho arbitrators. Yet within this very year tho futility of depending Bololy upon such agreements linv been proved upon tho nuked bodies of unprepared BolgluniB, Persia and China. Last year, when tho war broke out, bravo and thrifty Switzerland was fully prepared to defend her freedom and her honor, despite the fact that botli were alrcndy supposed to bo protected by the most solemn International treaties that can bo produced by successful and fnlrnilnded arbitrators. Bel btuin, preoccupied with business affairs and with the malting of money, trusted almost entirely to sacred treaties, also the product of calm arbitration. For America the fate of Belgium is ns a writing on tho wall which plainly proclaims that tho only valid insurance against unprovoked attack is reasonable military aggression, then, and then only, would Germany havo respected arbitration and its sacred treaties, and havo invaded France across the Franco-German border. For treaties between nations are like contracts between persons, an unscrupulous person will refrain from breaking a contract only when 'the penolty attached thereto is greater than the gain. . 0 PROCLAMATION BY THE MAYOR By vlrtuo of authority vested in me, a3 Mayor ot tho Town of SprlnRflelil, Oregon, I do hereby certify and pro claim that Ordlnanco No. 410 Entitled "An Ordinance to regulate Public Car riers of Passengers, ami to Tax anu LlcenBo such carriors," which was passed by tho Common Council' of SDrlngflold.
