Williamsport Review Republican (Newspaper) - March 15, 1917, Williamsport, Indiana The review March 15. .917 the review Republican one Dollar per year. Leading paper in Warren county. W. Merle Odle , established Republican Quot 1891. fair to the Farmer. Several months ago when the food shortage became apparent and the High prices became a Burden president Wilson delivered an address in which he said that the remedy is for the american people to raise a sufficient Quantity of crops so that such conditions could not arise in the future. There were some who immediately approved this solution of the difficulty. Many others however could see the consequences to which such a policy would Lead and now some of those who first approved the president s idea Are showing its fallacy. It was pointed out at the time that if Farmers should raise sufficient quantities of products to Supply the needs of the country under such unusual conditions As now exist there would be a vast surplus under Normal conditions and the Price of farm products would be so Low that no Farmer would thrive. President Wilson s faulty economic theories were due to his Lack of experience in business and to his failure to study the situation and consider the future As Well As the present. Very similar faults due to similar causes were seen in the discussion of methods of cold storage concerns. There was a great outcry against those business Enterprise engaged in the Purchase of food products in times of plenty and storing them for Sale in time of Scarcity. There were Many who would have put the cold a storage concerns Quot entirely out of business if they had the Power. The fact of the matter is As disclosed by More considerate discussion that if there were no persons engaged in the cold storage business there would be a glut in the Market during the Harvest season when All perishable products would be forced hurriedly upon the Market. Prices therefore would go to an unprofitable level. As a consequence of such a system of marketing there would be a Lack of perishable products later in the season. The cold storage concerns therefore not Only Foj Arnish a better Market for products at Harvest time but they Are a source of Supply later in the season when there would be a wet of perishable products if the cold storage concerns were not in operation. The effect of cold storage methods is to raise the Price to the consumer during the season of the year when the products can not be had from the producer. Without cold storage methods eggs would sell for ten or twelve cents a dozen in the Spring and would scarcely be obtained at any Price during the Winter. The same is True of Many kinds of fruits and meats. Undoubtedly there has been much unscrupulous manipulation of the Market for food products but the remedy is one of Well considered. Legislative regulation rather than destructiveness. The hungry the naked the sick and the dead in the District of Columbia from the distinguished chairman of the District committee a Kentucky Democrat assumed responsibility for the Bill which in de took to lower the Price of Medicine burial shrouds coffins Etc. A similar attention to the living and fully clothed designed to keep them in that condition would seem to possess a stronger demand for the consideration of Congress. A View of Bryan. Tom Bodine writing in the Mercury of Paris Missouri thus expresses his opinion of or. Bryan Quot no one Man has done the United states harm More incalculable since the european War began than or. Bryan. By his persistent meddling he has made each step taken by the president to steer Clear of foreign entanglements More difficult and less liable to succeed. By his very insistence on peace he has All but made War inevitable because his activities have not alone created a false impression in Germany but emboldened its rulers in their Effort to go behind the president and ignore him in his demands that some Little respect at least be shown our rights As a Neutral nation. That he has been used by the germans in their efforts to Divide Public opinion in this country and to create a sentiment hostile to president Wilson there is no doubt. If we have War no other one Man will have done More to bring it on. Sincerity s an admirable virtue but it can work untold harm when unaccompanied by practical go Nirelli pas8eas away.
