sor James T. Matthews, head of the
lunthemuticrt deportment in the univer

by the coast county delogntes. The
professor's long experience as a peda

personality, found tin answering re

declared it to be "the happiest institute
in his long cxperiorfeVns a teacher."

Upward Surge of Value
Gains Renewed Force
New York, Oct. '21. The upward
surge in values gained renewed force.
This applied to commodities and securi
ties alike, not only in the Vnited
States, but in the world over. All neu
tral countries nre enjoying exceptional
prosperity, and ill this respect the 1'nit
ed States far outdistances every one of
them. The war, of course, is the su
preme influence, all other factors be
ing of minor importance compared with
this one. liven our election, full as it
is of important potentinlties, is com
pletely overshadowed bv the cataclvsm
across the sea. This war is almost en
I tirely responsible for tho scarcity of
both commodities Hnd Inbor. Short
I crops are n factor that cannot be over
j looked; nevertheless the old and sup
posedly ohsolete law ot supply and de
mand is working ceaselessly with an
energy never before experienced, be
cause of the struggle now devastating
Kurope. This week wheat ami corn
tone lie, I new high points, with indica
tions that still higher figures may pos
sibly be reached. All food products nre
rising, and the same is true of clothing;
while our mineral industries iron,
steel, copper, petroleum, etc are rush
ed at a pace far exceeding the most
during expectations of a year ago. Iliad
street's commodity index number was
I2.IKHI1I October 1, an advance of '2-2
per cent since the war began. Indus
tries dependent upon agricultural and
mineral products are reaping directly
or indirectly large profits as a result
of war inflation, but their prosperity
is smnll compared with what has been
reached hy a few of the big industries,
notably those engaged in the fabrica
tion of steel.
No Changs in Sight
The question forced upon our minds
is how long can such hih tension pros
perity laat; and have we in the I'aited
'States reached the crest of the wavef
I think not; because the end of the war,
on which all this feverish rush depends,
is not yet in sight. Apparently there
will he no peace for- many months at
least. Signs of serious exhaustion on
either side are still wanting; reason has
lost its sway, and mad passion rules all
belligerents. I'atil the power of one
side or the other is broken it would
seem Hint pence will he impossible. The
allies are already negotiating for an
other big loan on this side; sand tor
munitions is being ordered deliverable
into the third quarter of 191", and
ships, guns and munitions are being
turned out with greater intensity than
at any time during the war. Such ef
forts do not portend pence. They rath
er suggest further sacrifices, further
destruction and more and more waste;
although it may be that change of mind
or breakdown of strength will develop
when least expested. In any event, the
immediate outlook for pPace is remote
and this conviction is the prime source
of present market strength. America
cannot avoid looking on in sorrow ni
the harrowing spectacle, hut our peo
ple and our government are alike in
capable of interfering or nftectiin; the
issue in nny way.. All neutials Are
benefiting from the needs of the bel
ligerents: the I'nitcd States, owing to
its industrial capacity, naturally profit
ing far more than any other. When the
war is over, this country will fiiol it
self in u vastly strengthened position.'
It will he financially independent of
Knrone! iin.l not nf the vast lirnlits
I made from the war, it will doubtless

and material needed for reconstruction.

,are benefiting from the impetus given
general trade and are less hazardous
i than somo of the highly inflated nut
' nition shares. Railroad stocks are also
receiving more favor from both in-
vestors and speculators. All the princw
I pal lines are reporting excellent earn
jiugs, and in spite of growing expenses,
their net results are highly encourag
ing. A few lines have already increased
their dividends, some have passed out
of the stage of doubt in this respect,
while others seem likely to advance
their dividend rate in the not distant
future. The betterment of the railroad
situation is apparent in other direc
tions than improvement in dividends.
One of the most important things to
remember in railroau matters is that
public opinion is at lust turning from
chronic hostility and prejudice to an
attitude of justice and fair play. Al
last it is being recogni.ed that the rail
roads have been the prey of unjust
treatment, that much legislation hns
been oppressive and unwise, that la
bor's demands have about reached the
limit of public sympathy, and that if
our transportation system is to develop
in keeping with public requirements,
the vallrouds must be placed under ra
tionul federal protection, where it is
possible for them to escape the conflict
ing authority of forty-eight different
states and to earn a fair return for
their services. This change in the at
titude of public opinion isi significant.
