THE PEOPLE ARE SAVING
It has been pointed out as evi
dence o.f how strongly the duty
of saving had been impressed
upon the English people by the
War-savings campaign in that
country that in the year 1916,
although purchasing billions of
dollars of war bonds, the small
savings-bank depositors in Eng
land increased their deposits
in savings banks over $60,000,-
000, this In the face of the fact
that the English have been not
ed as a spending rather than as
a saving people.
It seems that a similar pro
cess has taken place in Amer
ica. Two great Liberty Loans
Were floated in the year just
closing, and nearly $6,000,000,-
000 of Liberty Loan Bonds were
purchased by the people. Yet
instead of being depleted the
savings-banks deposits of the
country have been increased.
The president of one of the large
New York savings banks is quo
ted as saying on December 20,
"One of the most remarkable
things about the Liberty Loan
campaigns is the small effect
they have had oa the savings
banks accounts, which show an
increase. This we lay to the
appeals made to the American
people to purchase the bonds
out of .their earnings, paying
for them from week to week- or
from month' to month. The peo
pie appear to be doing as they
have been urged, purchasing the
bonds from current savings."

ENCOURAGE MINING INDUS
TRY Western' mines, as much or
more than any other industry
have directed the eyes of the
world this way. Our govern
ment and the allies to a large
extent depend on these mines
for their munitions of war. The
public generally has little idea
of the magnitude of the indus
try or the thousands of men it
employs in mines and smelters.
The average citizen thinks of a
mine as an easy place to make
money. As a matteir of fact
developing a mine takes more
nerve, energy and money than
any other line of business. Nev
er before was the mining of
copper, lead, iron, zinc, sliver,
gold and other metals of such
paramount Importance to our
nation and never before was it
bo highly important to encour
age these industries in every
manner possible by Just and
equitable legislation. Manufac
