Hard Times in Imagination.
Are we really having hard
times? Or is much of it simply
imagination, fostered by a mod-
erate shrinkage from the ordinary
volume of business? We are
firmly convinced that the latter
is correct, and that imagination
has played a strong part in our
supposed mercantile paralysis.
Unquestionably we had a tight-
ening of the money market for
some ^months past. Likewise
some factories have closed down
and others have been running
with reduced force. But that oc-
curs every time we have a change
in the national administration.
Every political party going into
power must face a like condition
for the first year or so. Finan-
ciers become wary until they
know something of the policy
that is to be pursued by the
new administration. That as the
period through which we have
been passing, with t he ' war ad-
ding so.in* to the commercial de-
pression. But the gOvernmem
has settled down to its definite
policy, capital is regaining its
confidence, and the country is
rapidly approaching its normal
condition. A country is like an
individual, a has its good days
and its ba i ones, hut alt must he
reckoned on the final ' balance
sheet. The aggregate is yii.it

hard times remain are purely in
