Albert Lea Examiner (Newspaper) - August 19, 1920, Albert Lea, Minnesota Page two Albert Lea examine thursday August 19, 1920. Elbert Ufa Examinee published by the Freeborn i of my publishing co office 222 East Clark Street Albert Lea. Minn. Published weekly Norman j. Gilli Spie editor and manager Telephone state 618_ entered a a the Post office at Albert Lea. Minn., As second class mail matter. Us a a a St scr irk n rates one year 2.00 is Mont 11-00 a subscription acce a to must be paid in Advance. Soulless government in these Days it Zouki be Hart to find a business of any St. To or in instance ran by an individual or a partnership. Nearly All our so called a Large business Quot it corporation business. We believe that no one will have any difficulty in admitting this fact and what we wish to bring out is the Benting it has on business practice and through that on the government of the state and nation which has been chiefly the reflection of the dominant business groups. A corporation has Only one legitimate and practical purpose namely the inking of profits for stockholders. The corporation elects a Board of directors to formulate the policies to Curry out this general purpose. And this boar i of directors appoints a president and a manager tin. Board of director. And this president and manager mud have an Eye single to profits Ami to profits Only. Corporate practice com Pels obedience to this motive and if some Case a Board of directors or a president hould act from some other motive a stockholder can bring Uit against them. Thus. Henry Ford was ordered by the supreme court of the Tate of Michigan to refrain from using the funds of the Ford company to improve the conditions of his employees when the a funds might be used to promote the profits of stockholders. Another hold which the corporation has on the individual conscience is the fart that men can not succeed in the corporate world v. Trout giving their entire allegiance to the corporate motive. Hence when judge Gary the recognized Leader of the steel Trust Speaks in Public or tells the politicians of Washington what to do he Speaks entirely As a corporate representative and not As a Man who can give weight to moral or humanitarian considerations. The same May be said of All the other great business leaders. Uch As Rockefeller Morgan and Schwab quoted so often in the City press and magazines on Public questions. These men Are not free to be american or religious or moral or to give ear to the demands of of Viou Justice Between Man and Man when these things interfere with the corporate motive. A go eminent therefore which is dictated to by the lenders of great corporations is indeed a soulless government who Only actual work is done in the direction of protecting corporate greed. Why then should we be surprised that toe serious problems of the people become steadily More serious of Long As the people entrust their government to the leaders of corporations Only aim is profit the next War that the next War will be fought by dropping bacteria to cause disease Over enemy Citie is the opinion of doctor Charles Horace Mayo of Rochester Minn. This conclusion was brought out at a dinner talk last week in London. Quot in the said doctor Mayo a War will be one of invisible organisms. It will be a War of dropping capsules of bacteria Over cities which will have the most destructive he think that in the near future medical science will have advanced to such an extent As to make it almost impossible for armies to fight As they did in the last War and that the Field marshals of toe future May be medical men. This View i. Interesting As indicating the extent to which imperialistic rivalry would probably carry the War game unless counter movements Are started which will make War a thing of the past. Previous to the lat War the bulk of civilized people would have found it impossible to believe that supposedly civilized human beings would do what was done Between 1914 and 1919 that defenceless cities would to bombed from the air that women and children would be starved by blockades As a mean of reducing enemy morale that officers would order the killing of enemy wounded As a Means of a blooding Quot their own troops. The last War from the Allied Side at least was supported by people who accepted the promises of the so called ruling classes that they would use this War to end All War. Two years have since passed and it is common knowledge that the peace Council did nothing to remove the causes of War but rather has been res Pon Ible for about 16 minor wars and the Only reason that we do not have a major War at the present time i that nations which would like to fight Are too exhausted to enter a new struggle. Evidently some new principle must be infused into the governments of the world if War is to be made a thing of the past. The men now in control have no intention of removing it and unless this new principle actual government of. By and for the common people is infused into the leading nations we shall soon have again not Only the horrors of the last great War but probably the new and More terrible horrors As predicted by doctor Mayo. Perhaps it is in the Long run As dangerous for the people to let plutocratic interests control them a it was for the ancient israelite to old by wicked King and follow after false gods As set Forth in the scriptures. I unlocking is easier i piece of legislation would do the work we can not honestly see of much in it As its advocates Hope for. I the direct will of the people has Little to do with the causes for War and if the people had the Choice in the matter those who wish War would find the Means of a a Selling the War to them As advertisers sell clothes or automobiles. People Are generally willing to go to War for certain reasons such As National defense unbearable atrocities perhaps of a neighbouring country or conflicting race interests. Hence the task of the War makers would be to prove to the people that the War desired was a defensive War or one to end the atrocities or one to keep Black or yellow Russ blockade will serve to awaken people allies must Lay Down Law to Japan says american army officials i Acoma Vav order to accomplish Russia s Complete Awakening to la. ,.

It is a combination of hip subsidy and High protective two thing the american people have fought against for a generation.

There s Hail in Ranee Accident insurance policies in Public buildings Bank guarantee and Bond ing of Public officers it if time now to think on the matter of health insurance. The Federal government also has made a Success in one Field insurance that Field is the War risk insurance written by unclear on the i ves of the service men and women who went to the front in the great War. Uncle Sam a.

Before the War the average life insurance policy written by private companies not including Industrial insurance was Given As approximately $2320. The Bureau has paid out in benefits under the insurance aet a total to Date of 6223,3d3,769.72. The North Dakota idea of state built Homes for the people apparently a penetrated the far East even so conservative a new paper As the Springfield ma.-., Republican seriously discusses the desirability of having the state take Over the erection of Home As the Only effective remedy for the present House shortage. The Scarcity of Homes in the East seems to be far More acute than it is farther West and the North Dakota plan May very soon find favor with the folks in the land of the bean and the cod. In an editorial discussing the great need for mom House in Springfield mass., the Republican in part says a private capital cannot be forced into building operations against its will and judgment. But it should be recognized that the situation May become so acute a. To create an insistent demand that the state or municipality undertake the con traction of a it is a sign of the times that this proposal i now frequently heard Ami is urged by the special problems committee of the american labor party. The pre ident of the United real estate owners association of new York supports it. A the argument is made that the risk of building at present prices is general throughout the country even throughout the world amt that it can be localized in no particular place. A it is therefore claimed to be a Public risk possibly too great for private capital which the Public should Bear.
