AMERICAN farmers who have re
duced their planted acreape of
wht of 7.ftK3,(HX acres in 1919 to
67.iU.000 in 1921 is both justifiable
and wis. In the opinion of Theodore
D. Hamroatt, investigator for the De
partment of Commerce, who see in
the wove the possibility of the pass
ing of the United States as a wheat
exporting country Apparently the
fanners believe the only safe policy
it to limit their production to the
need? of the home market.
In the opinion of Mr. Hammett war
dislocated the whole system of inter
national trade in breadstuff a. Russia,
India, Argentine and Australia, all
larfre growers of wheat, fell more
or less into the background during
the war, while the United States and
Canada entered more importantly in
to the competitive field. This con
tirued after the war had ended, but
evidently it has not taken long for
the period of readjustment to put
the American farmer in the rear line
Many elements enter into the de
veloping of a great world trade in
bread stuffs just as they enter into
world trade in manufactured goods,
tabor plays a part, but basically the
shipping problem is the chief key to
the situation. The scuttling of The
American Merchant Marine spells
more to this country than the loss of
prestige on the seas. It means the
hampering of American trade which
must depend on foreign bottoms the
water railroads needed to carry Am
erican goods to foreign markets.
It means that America no longer
can govern routes. It means we can
not designate shipping ports nearest
the points of greatest production, or
ports of arrival at points of nearest
distribution. We must take what we
can get, and experience in the past
has clearly shown that Great Brit
ain, dominating the sea, has never
geared her maritime operations to
meet the best interest of Uncle Sam.
GET THE FACTS STRAIGHT.
T BOTH Missouri and Oregon elec-
1 tors will be asked to vote on the
question of monopolistic state com
pensation insurance at coming elec
tions. Pamphlets, booklets, newspaper ar
ticle and other material are being
spread broadcast in these two states
telling the people how they are being
robbed by private insurance com
panies. In the voter's pamphlet which bas
now been distributed in Oregon, the
inconsistent part of the argument for
monopolistic state insurance is that
private companies, by writing insur
ance at low rates, have caused the
state fund to lose 1300 accounts.
therefore, the law should be made
monopolistic and exclude private
companies from the field.
It would be well for the public to
remember this: That an argument
against monopolistic state compensa
tion insurance is not an argument
against the working-men's compensa
tion act, not an argument against the
right and power of the state to de
fine and specify bow much, when, and
where and bow a workingman should
be paid by an employer for injury
received by an employee in the course
of hit work.
The argument against monopolistic
state compensation insurance is that
there is no more cause for excluding
private insurance companies from
writing workingmen's compensation
insurance in accordance with existing
state laws, than there is for exclud
ing banks from doing a banking bus
iness under existing state laws in
order that the state might set up
monopolistic state banking.
Workmen can secure every protec
tion under a properly drawn state
workingmen's compensation law
which permits an employer to carry
his insurance with a private company,
that they can secure under t law re
quiring the employer to carry his in
surance with the state. This is the
real point at issue and not any fight
between employers and their employ
ees or insurance companies and an
i reared workman.
Stale insurance is state socialism.
If it can be established in one line
of business, it can be established in
bnotner. The Manufacturer.
JUSTICE CONFOUNDED BY
