The country is having experience Brief it is hoped with hard times. It is human nature for everyone involved deeply in the business depression to assume that he More than his fathers or anyone else is tasting the lowermost Dregs of bitterness. It is human nature too at such a period to quot be impatient with accounts of other people s woes. Still it seems necessary to remind certain of the More pessimistic citizens that As compared with 1873 and 1875 the present times Are highly prosperous. As compared with Europe we sleep upon Beds of roses. Over great stretches of the old country there is no food except that which charitable folks faraway Are supplying. The cattle have been slain or been driven away. Wool for clothing cannot be bought because the Money is wanting Cotton cannot be imported because of the difficulties of the Exchange rate even where Small amounts of Money can be accumulated. Most of the Coal mines Are Idle the railroads Are broken Down the political machinery functions indifferently. Out of such cities As vie Tina the inhabitants straggle in the Early morning to pick up firewood Miles away and a straggle Back at dusk bowed and weary to obtain a few hours of warmth from their meagre gleanings. The difficulties in. This country Are not those of under production under Supply. We have wherewith to live wherewith to work wherewith to restore every Industrial activity. Some Day soon the economic mechanism will be running As smoothly As Ever no material lacking. But a great part of Europe cannot do anything for itself until it obtains the Mere tools and the Mere Wood and Iron upon which to labor. We Are entitled quot to grumble and quarrel with our hard times. Yet we cannot close our eyes to the fact that there Are people upon the Globe who would Call our present hard times Good. Or. M.
