Home Markets Best.
Herbert Hoover, secretary of com
merce, is the latest economist and
authority on international trade to
give emphasis to the fact that the
hcpe of the American farmer for
renewal of prosperity and a return
to profitable prices for his products
lies in his home market, rather than
in foreign markets. Mr. Hoover
voiced the sentiment clearly and
most emphatically in a statement
which he recently made to the Inter
state Commerce commission relative
to a general policy of rehabilitating
the transportation system sof the
United States. Secratary Hoover
showed the need of such rehabilita
tion from the standpoint of private
enterprises as well as that of public
In speaking, however, to the point
of how such a policy would effect
farmer and farm prices Secretary
"A real program of construction
would in its various ramifications
give relief to fve or six hundred
thousand of our unemployed. It
w ould enable even added numbers to
increase their standard of living, and
thus give increased market to the
produce of our farmers. Our far
mers who look to foreign markets for
their surplus should stop to consider
that our home consumption of meat
decreased nearly 7 pounds per capita
in 1921, mostly owing to unemploy
ment and that if this decrease could
be overcome it would be worth more
than a 35 per cent increase in exports.
"We talk glibly of giving billions
of credits to foreign countries, to in
crease our farm expprts. I wish to
say with all responsibility for the
statement, that a billion dollars spent
upon American railways will give
more employment to our people
more advance to our industry, more
assistance to our farmers, than twice
that sum expended outside the front
iers of the United States, and there
will be greater security for the in
In short, the problem confronting
the American people, farmer and
city consumer alike, is not what shall
be done with European markers but
what shall be done with American
markers, and what domestic policies
must be put into effect to stop the
influx of cheaply-made foreign goods
that are now driving American indus
tries out of business and throwing
thousands of American working peo
pie out of employment.

There will be to many people an
element of humor in the present sit
uation under which many woolgrow-
ers look askance at the rapid climb
in wool prices. One might expect
them to throw up their hands and
shout. But it must be remembered
that the grower had the advantage of
skyrocket prices during the war and
such prices entailed certain disad
vantages. The grower doubtless has
no desire for further experience with
60 cent wool and a 30 centt drop in
price over night. It is hard on the
nerves not to mention the pocket

Congress Makes Good Record.
The present Repubilcan congress
has been and is working at a speed
and with an efficiency which has
never been excelled by any previous
congress in American history.
l! has been only ten months since
this congress convened in special
session and listened to the first mes
sage of Presilent Harding calling up
on it for certain legislative action. A
ttudy of that message and a listing of
the accomplishments of the congress
set forth the indisputable and irrefut
able fact that every request for leg-
wative action which President Hard
ing made in his first message to con
gress has been acted upon favorably
by the house of representatives with
cne exception. Congress is delaying
nction upon this pending decision by
the president and his cabinet regard
ing the proposed plan of reorganiz
ing all of the executive agencies.
In addition to carrying out the pres
ident's requests for legislation the
congress has enacted a great many
laws which were demanded by public
interests to facilitate the processes of
reconstruction and rehabilitation.
Those who charge that congress
has been dilatory, that it has not been
hard at work, that it has paid no at
tcmion to the president's recommen
dations speak either out of utter ig
norance or with a purpose to mia-
