MUST HAVE GOOD MARKETS.
Congressman Campbell, addressing a
meeting of the silk manufacturers a few
days ago, said:
"The market is today a greater guar-
antee of the world's peace than armies
and navies. We live in a commercial
not in a martial age. The controlling
ambition of every people throughout the
world is for commercial supremacy, and
the desire to be successful in the mar-
ket, enlivens the imagination and tires
the ambition of the young of every land.
Let it be so.
"Many times danger to the market
has been the cause for .a call to arms.
Armies have been equipped, battles have
been fought, blood has been freely shed,
and national dcbt9 have been increased
in its defense.
"Every country has an indisputable
right to place its market on whatever
plan it thinks is for the common welfare
of its people. One of the tirst rights ex
ercised by the fathers of the republic
under the constitution, was to provide
for the creation and protection of a dis
tinctivcly American market. At that
time it was small and had little influ-
ence on the world's trade. Today it is
the greatest market in the world, and
the greatest in the history of mankind.
"Trade among ourselves is greater
than the domestic trade of all other peo-
ple combined and our foreign commerce
U unequalled by any other country.
"But, it is said, prices of farm and
food products are high. They are high.
That is one of two things that makes
ours the best market in the world. The
other factor is a high standard of wages
lor American workmen.
"I have been in markets where every-
thing was cheap—labor, men, homes and
the price of everything. A complete
outfit of clothes could be purchased for
ninety cents, hnd yet, half the people in
that country wore no clothes at all, and
the other half was poorly clad. Every-
thing was cheap, but the people were
tx> p>.or to be consumers at any price.
They could not take advantage of the
cheapest kind of a cheap market.
Whatever the cause no one has yet in-
rented, discovered or created a market
in which it is possible, at the same time,
to sell at a high price, and buy at a low
price. Until that kind of a market is
found, it will be an act of wisdom on our
part to keep our market on the high
plane it occupies today
"Our market could easily be crippled.
It has been done—once within recent
memory. Those who wanted low prices
"I am glad the farmers of Kansas and
of every other state are now getting good
prices for their cattle and hones, their
■heep and hogs, their corn and wheat,
their ducks and chickens and their but
ter and eggs—fer everything they sell.
They are able to buy more and you are
able to employ more men and pay them
higher wages, so that those you employ,
in turn, can keep on buying the farmers'
products and the products of other fac-
tories and mines and in that way sus-
tain the market for the product of their
labor and your spindles.
"Nothing so stimulates the American
market as good wages to American
workmen and good prices to American
farmers for their products. The market
depends on these two important factory."
COSTING 98,000 PER WEEK.
The special session of the legislature
is costing at the rate of 18,000 per week,
and what is being done? Seven meas-
ures have passed, all of which could
have gone over to a regular session, ex-
cepting two—one extending this year.s
tax payments and one appropriating
money for special session salaries. The
seven bills have cost the people of the
state almost 18,000 each. Are they
There is • most encouraging tendency

suo of the Chattanooga (Okla.) News is
along the right lines:

losses for the year 1908 beginning with
1124,000,000 in January and steadily in
creasing, aggregate over 9200,000,000.
Although there were but seven fires dur-
ing the year 1906 where the losses were
11,000,000 or more, the aggregate loss
equals that of the year of the great Bal
timore conflagration. When the busi

tion of his credit due to the fact that he

Now ' what are you going to do about
it?" What is the remedy? The whole
answer is contained in one word,
—diversification. Diyerify the crops.
Do not depend on one or two crops.
That plan means ruin. Seven yeais'
trial has proved it. Similar land in
other places is farmed successfully.
Government and state experiment
stations have been preaching the doc-
trine of intensive culture and diversity
•f crops for years, for soil similar to ours.
In most of places the plan has been ad-
opted and prosperity always resulted.
Whenever we decide to raise the crops
to which the soil and climate is adapted
instead of the crops to which we are
adapted, then we will succeed, and not
Of course we can go on in our stiff-

ral conditions, just that long will we
"be damned" sure enough.

tinuous cultivation conserves the moist-

where persistent cultivation is more

This country is all right. It is the
methods of men that are wrong. If
farmed right it will produce crops every

the land that raises them. The inevit-
able effect of that will be to more than
double the price of the land in two year*.
