That is what Mr. Howe, the
author of Denmark, "A Co-op-

the Congress of Co-operators in
Des Moines a few days ago.
Economic experts, filling the
financial columns of the big
Eastern dailies, are busy push-
ing their pens to overcome the
heresy of Mr. Howe. In their
estimation, business is entitled
primarily to the bank credits,
and especially to the lion share
of such credits.

That the employers are well able
to pay a living wage is evident from
a survey of the industry in New
York, Sapoos declares. Were the
Chicago employers any worse off
they would submit their accounting
records, he points out.
Deductions were allowed of
$14,465,673, bringing the net
income to $50,624,899. The in-
come tax the government col-
lected amounted to $33,301,085,
so that these five persons re-
tained nearly $32,000,000 as
their income for one year.
Please imagine $32,000,000
worth of wheat and corn and
oats and beefsteak and pork-
chops and ice cream and cloth-
ing and shoes and the other
things that we need in our
daily lives, and then suppose
that a jury of good citizens
would call on these five persons
to "consume" this thirty-two
million dollars worth of com-
modities. They would surely
have some feast. They would
not be able to finish the job.
They would be willing to give
up the first day.
Instead of calling on these
five persons to consume their
share of the wealth, we merely
entrust them with this wheat
and corn and oats and beefsteak
and railroads and mines and
elevators and electric light and
gas plants and street car sys-
tems and nearly the entire
wealth producing machinery

Organized labor took the position
