Williamsport Review Republican (Newspaper) - August 4, 1921, Williamsport, Indiana
My my the review Republican one Dollar and fifty cents per year leading paper in Warren county l w. Gripe editor. A to i Utu at a. 1 a never be so cheap As it used to be. Review established Inland we hear Little complain i from anyone about that. Moreover rail charges Are double More than double what they were and they Are not Likely to be lowered until some plan is found for reducing the operating expenses the roads to somewhere near their former figure. A great Deal suspicion is naturally directed at those who handle the coals the jobbers and the retailers you hear it frequently said that it is the profit mine owner and wholesaler and Coal dealer that Are keeping Coal so expensive. Those men All and sundry course deny the accusation and there is no evidence available to convict them overcharging. Neither unfortunately is there any evidence before the Public to acquit Thero. We dislike to recommend any More investigations for investigations Are slow cumbersome things to iat Only occasionally shed any real Light such a complicated matter As producing and distributing Coal. But an investigation will pretty quot surely be demanded if the Price Coal stays where it is. People will not willingly pay several dollars More than they paid even in the War time unless some one shows them a Good reason Why they should. They cannot refrain from buying Coal As they Republican established in 1841 Washington August 4.�?that the republicans the ways and Means committee have produced the greatest Tariff Bill in the history the country is the Contention representative Frank w. Mondell Wyoming the majority Leader. He says quot the Republican members the ways and Means committee the House have performed a great Public service in the preparation and presentation the Fordney Tariff Bill. No work human hand brain is perfect no Tariff measure dealing with a thousand schedules affecting billions in values can be wholly satisfactory in All its items and provisions to anyone. The preparation this Bill was undertaken at a time when the Trade and Industry and labor the world is in a sadly disorganized and unsatisfactory state. The difficulties surrounding the securing accurate information relative to the comparative costs pro Dupion have been greater than Ever before. Notwithstanding All these handicaps the finished product rate and policy set out in the 346 pages this Bill has met with More favourable response from the country Public Sadie.

On the Job we notice that Many newspaper writers seem to take Delight in recalling the fact that the new chairman the Republican National committee started working for the company which he is now the head at a wage $3 per week. That is interesting and Worth while to the Young people the country. But it was t a $3-a-week beginning that enabled to get to the head a Large concern. It is a Safe bet that he never began to watch the clock an hour before quitting time and that he did t leave any own work for someone else to do and that he was always ready to take a Little More responsibility whenever the Boss notice than any like measure presented within a generation. This approval can from buying persian rugs fur is not confined to any particular per Coats China dishes and they will Tion the country but is voiced to a considerable extent from every Section. It will in my opinion grow rather than diminish a the provisions the Bill Are examined and Analysed. Quot while the majority has performed a great Public service the minority has wholly missed lamentably missed a great Opportunity to perform a Public service. In this country where the two great parties have held widely differing views the general subject Tariff legislation there is abundant ground for legitimate criticism by the minority whether it be Republican democratic any Lariff measure presented by the major if. Be it Republican democratic and this legitimate criticism if frankly and fairly uttered serves a useful purpose first in defining the Vioag the opposition clearly and second in pointing out and calling attention to items and provisions relative to which the majority May not have been sound and Wise. Quot criticism this kind we live had none from the minority. Neither the minority report nor the speeches so far heard from tie minority Side present Clear concise logical much less constructive critics. I k not be restive just As Long As they suspect that they Are being overcharged for a necessary daily life. If As the Coal Trade asserts present prices Are unavoidable it would be a Good thing to have it clearly proved. That is the Only Way the Confidence and Good will the Puronas ing Public which Means everyone in this country can be regained. Horn hens pure bred.

It is due to the fact that the Bill As a whole is a More perfect measure and less vulnerable than other Tariff measures As a Republican favourable to the measure 1 am inclined to think that the Bill is less subject to criticism than any Tariff measure which has been presented in Many years but in that fact we cannot find a full explanation the failure the minority hands j.

The Well was held by the referees to have produced the amount stipulated in the Wager and the stakeholder paid the Money Over to the Parker residents.

The Price Coal in the midst a great Clatter falling prices we see the lofty Structure that represents the Price Coal standing firm and apparently unshaken and since our civilization both Industrial and Domestic is founded squarely Coal the persistence High prices for it is a serious matter. There is a widespread conviction abroad ill that Coal should come Down a with most other things and that there is a conspiracy somewhere to keep it up. The conviction appears in the refusal people to buy Coal now though this is the time year a when it can be most conveniently mined shipped and delivered. The Coal companies Are reduced to pleading with the Public in print assuring them that Coal cannot go any lower and that the re will be All sorts trouble text Winter if they do not fill their bins now.
