The government is left without an:," satisfactory method of controlling ex- cessive prices for commodities, since tile Supreme Coat| decreed the vital sections of the [,ever act unconstitu- tional. it is a most difficult situation to handle, since too rigid price control el]flee production. Attempts to fix prices on farm products, for instance, would be hazardous, except in some great war emergency. Such prices. if set al a. point below the figure fix- ed by natural processes, would drive many farmers out of business, ~md finally tend to elevate the cost ,,f these staples. q'he g()vernlnen l, however, needE some kind of power with which to act in exceptional situations where com- bines control market, and when their grip can't bc shaken by workings of economic law. Congress must see that some mean.~ is found for protect- ing the people form the extorti(m practiced by certain elements when they gel a chance.

The public suffered front the exorbitant prices asked for sugar when that+ staple was released free.1 control. But in the end free petition and higl) prices brought nn enormous amount of sugar into the market, which has now produced a very reasonable price.

OLD AND OBNOXIOUS. The state of Washington's resort to the ancient and distasteful poll . tax in order to raise more revenue ought to determine whether an up- lift or something else has been pro- duced by the tribulations of the war period It is either a. meek people or an intensely patriotic people that are, will pay a. poll tax without protest, especialHy a pol' tax of $5 on each adult member of the family. It was when the poll tax was added to other greivances that the English peasants revolted in 71831 and tt was the poll tax which inci- dentally produced one of our early historic bolshevist~. Because of the poll tax Wat Tyler, with his army of peasants, sought to overthrow lawn and land titles, promote a drab level anc1 give the rule of England exclu- sively into the hands of the common people. The poll tax has not been uncom- mon in this country. In some it was once--it may be coupled with franchise that om could not vote unless he had paid. Prior to the present undefiled politi- cal era, party organizations found the scheme a pleasant aid to election control. They would get the votes Farmers' Union Co. b, paying voters' poll tax.

The scheme en- couraged many a rural picnic where- in the most exciting contest was see- ing which taxpayer could do ~he ]east work on the roads in a day. The poll tax has always, every- where, been difficult to collect. If a sufficient number rebel, there is nothing to be done about it. Some cannot rebel successfully, notably the real property owner who may find his unpaid poll tax added to his real es- tate tax. Collection from the era. p]oyer ale0 catches many employee whether they" are or not rebels "at heart. But always n large number in a community have it within 'their own power to determine whether they shall pay or not. They need only act together. Oregon had a road poll tax once time. It fell into such disuse that only in the occasional county where there was the combination of a shortage of public moneys, and ,t number of loboring men who could be reached through their employers was there genuine attempt to collect it. There was in a general sense no poll tax, but the idea of one was so obnoxious that the single taxers lYhen the masquerade became known the people repealed the local option fature and the one restricting the au- thority of tim legislature, but they re tained in the constitution ~he inhi- bition against a poll tax. Such is the unpopularity of the new revenue measure in Wa,shinglon. it may be fancied l:hat when pay-up time ct)mes that h)ve and esteem to which all legislatures so earnestly :~spire will be expressed by lhe pub- lie in dashes and asterisks.---Ore- gon]an, An exchange suggests ]hal every good deed has an aftermath of peN- tire vEllle, aIld every bad one has :t jail sentence, or wha! is often harder.
