HE successive increases in eastern freight rates since 1914 of 5%, 15%, 25% and 40%, and corresponding advances in
express rates, have figuratively removed New York eastward into the Atlantic Ocean some 1,500 miles, as measured by the present carrying charges to the Middle West.
Slow rail service has doubled and tripled the time in transit, making long-haul distribution economically impossible and consequential interest charges excessive.
While the raw materials and markets of the Mississippi Valley, Middle West and Far West have been further removed from the long-haul eastern manufacturer, they have been drawn closer to the short-haul St. Louis manufacturer.
The relatively better transportation service enjoyed by St. Louis industries is a big factor in economical production and distribution. Nine-tenths of the railroad embargoes during and since the war, so costly to industry, were placed because of freight jams and blockades in the East, where there is one-third of the population of the country and only 17% of the railroad mileage.
The per capita inefficiency of industrial labor has been, and is, greatest in the congested eastern sections, and is in ratio with the decrease in efficiency of transportation.

THE RAINBOW IN THE FINANCIAL
CLOUDS (Continued) without discomfort and distress, the war debt under which we labor. Upon the relation of capital to prosperity volumes might be written. My own opinion is that the waste of capital is almost as great as the waste of labor. Some of us use too much capital or Eturn it over too slowly. Others do not have enough and pay extravagant prices to make up the deficiency when their need is acute.
All of us waste capital by carrying an unnecessary amount of money in our pockets, tills, and other places where it is idle and unproductive. I was speaking to a company of ninety men in Dallas, Texas, a month ago. At my request, they counted up the money they had with them. It amounted to nearly $2,700, almost $30 reach. None of them required anything like such an amount, for nearly all their purchases were made on credit. I told them so, and pointed out that they ought to put the money in bank and so help to relieve the scarcity of credit .of which they and every one else in Texas was complaining.
And then there is the waste of capital that results from keeping eight billions of gold tied up in idleness as bank reserves. Our Federal Reserve banks alone hold two billions of gold as a reserve. If it were in circulation, it would earn at least one hun- dred millions a year in interest, to say nothing of the stimulus to business that it would furnish.
I know that the belief that the banks ought to keep a gold reserve is so sacro
sanct to some that it seems almost blasphemous to question it, but we shall some day come to understand that wealth-producing or consumable property is the only reserve worth having, and that the value of gold is traditionary rather than real. That we have made some progress in this direction is indicated by the fact that we Chave sold twenty-five billion Liberty Bonds without providing that a dollar of gold ret serve shall be held against them. We insist, nevertheless, that the Federal Reserve banks shall keep forty per cent in gold against the three and a half billions of Federal Reserve notes outstanding.
There are many other ways in which capital is wasted or inefficiently employed. Taxation, Government expenditure, and an unwillingness to insure are some of them. Just to touch on insurance. Every one realizes that. he ought to insure his life for the benefit of his family and his property against destruction by fire, but most Inen are so neglectful of this duty that the insurance companies have to employ agents to whom they pay hundreds of millions yearly to persuade people to insure themselves. In the fire insurance business alone the resulting increase in the cost of the indemnity provided is about $250,000,000 a year, which could be saved if insurance were obligatory.
In the life insurance business the waste of capital from the same cause is of course much larger, but I have not had time to calculate it. Then there is the unnecessary fire waste due to carelessness. No one knows exactly what it is. Some say $200,000,000, but we shall probably be well within the mark in assuming that our in
companies could save a billion dollars a year if insurance were obligatory and unnecessary fire losses were avoided.
Of our waste of transportation we ought to be ashamed. Why, I know, and I expect you know, of a certain article that makes four journeys between New England and
It doesn't take a Jules Verne to imagine the time when our present-day fuel will be gone.
But there is nothing frightful in the prospect. Already the world's engineering brains have cast ahead and discovered a new fuel in rain drops and dew fall—water power.
Nor is this source of power a hazy dream of the future. It's here.
In California, for example, 942,000 hydroelectric horsepower are right now turning wheels, lighting cities and harvesting crops.
In the United States as a whole there are 9,000,000 hydro-electric horsepower actually at work—and this is but fifteen per cent of our available supply.
It is to the other eighty-five per cent we must look against the day when coal and oil are museum curiosities.
Just how soon hydro-electric development will come to any community must depend on local conditions—such as how long the coal supply there can advantageously compete with water power.
But in the many places where coal is scarcely to be had, sane common-sense thinking about the relative economy of water power will hasten its coming—to the common good.
We should all understand that water power is not the interest of any particular business —that it is not a political issue, but a great economic one which affects us all.
So its support must come from the people, whose money will be needed to finance it. And rightly so.
Conservation of our national resources is one of the first benefits of water power development. The preservation of forests, the avoidance of floods, the irrigation of arid lands are part and parcel of this program.
Truly, unharnessed water is a national possession which goes to waste as long as we do not use it—and in this day of inadequate production and the high cost of living, any waste is an economic crime.
