Bryan in his commoner this week outlines in a Vay what the democratic platform As he sees to will be. There Are several issues on which he thinks there will be a fight but there1 Are others on which he thinks the convention in san Francisco next week will be agreed. Among the planks which he suggests will surely be adopted is one demanding profit fixing in every line of business. I we Are not prepared just now to go the whole Way with or. is after the profiteer it is True and the profiteer must be curbed in some Way. There is reason in his argument to be sure. He claims that the rain Racis nov to Ticu Iutmui limited that the telephones and other Public utilities have a Price fixed beyond which they cannot go and even the private Money Lender is confronted with usury Laws forbidding the lending of Money at More than a fair wage for its use. He argues from these facts that the Man who deals in the necessities of life should likewise be limited in the prices which he charge the his profits should be regulate. We assume that or. Bryan is willing for the broker and the retailer to make a profit which will enable them to live and Prosper As other people live and Prosper but he is not willing that they should charge More than what is reasonable in the Way of profits j there is at least something to think about along this line. In some of the states and in Georgia jus j now there is what is called a Fai j Price commission which is fixing the prices at which Many of the Necessia j ties of life must be sold by the re Tailer. Hie profits Are limited. Per haps we shall come to the same thins in the buying and Selling of othe i things. It seems to us however that re Lief will come from the employment j of other methods. What the country i really needs is. Better marketing a j Wilities and better business methods in baying and Selling commodities t there is a Cotton Mill in new England we will say that wants All the r Long Staple Cotton which will be pro 1 a Little slow lately in fact de do not put it up fast enough for Sor of the boys and they Are afraid the they will not be Able to pay much j come tax next year unless he i Gers a Little. But while there is this dissatisfaction we would like to inquire we More they would have to expect fro a Man who has no Price at All for. Cd ton does will not know that Cott is the Money crop of the countr and that the Money \ will have depends entirely on to Price the Cotton brings then if does Why does he not name his Pri for Cotton is it higher or lower Thi 1.89? that is what John Gray Ai the boys around Antreville As Well the boys everywhere else would lil to know if the figures which w has in mind Are less than x.89, we make a change then again How does will stand reduce one third and How w must speak up and now i the tin to talk.
