world? asks the Sunday Express, of Lou*
don. It answers the query itself by giv-
ing a list at the heed of which b Henry
Ford whose fortune b estimated at $500,-
000,000. John D. Rockefeller comes next
with $450,000,000; Andrew W. Mellon, sec-
retary of the treasury, is tlgird with $150,-
000,000, and then follow the Dhke of
Westminster, Sir Basil Zaheroff, Hugo
Stinnes, Percy Rockefeller, Baron H. Mit-
sui, Baron H. Iwasaki and the Gaekwai
of Baroda, each with $100,000,000.
James B. Duke, the tobacco king; Geo,
F. Baker, of the First National Bank of
New York, and T. B. Walker, the Min-
neapolis timber landowner, the Express
says, might be added to the list, since
they all have fortunes estimated at $100,-
000,000, while there are at least three other
Indian rulers whose fortunes probably ex-
ceed this amount.
. The Rothschilds, Guggenheims. Vander-
bilts, Weyerhousers, and the Asters, says
the writer, do not appear because theirs
are family fortunes. The Rothschild
wealth has been estimated at from $250,-
000.000 to $500,000,000 and that of the

blind, easy-going optimism. If material
ism be accepted, the pessimist baa the
advantage of the optimist logically.
To this point Dr. Van Dyke speaks
ffl-H poibici'i'’ when be says: “Pessimism
exudes from fatalism Itkr sepia' from the
cuttle fish. What could be more dispirit
ing than to doubt the reality of all ef-
fort, to deny the possibility of self con
quest and triumph over circumstances, to
find heroism an illusion and virtue a
dream? What could break the spring of
life more completely than to fad that our
feet are tangled in a net whose metha
were woven by our ancestors, and for them
by tailless apes, and for than by gliding
amphibians, and for them by gliding
worms, and for them by ciliated fervw.
and for them by aramhe, and for them b'
God knows what.”
Against tins benumbing fatalism, which
Carlyle called the “gospel of dir*,” the
Christian ministry should sound loud and
oiear the glad, liberating redemption that
the Christ has wrought for a sir.-enslaved
race, and has said to all men: “If the
Son, therefore, shall raaks you free, ye
shall be free indeed ”
A BILUON-DOLLAR COMPANY
The hUliea-doilar corporation is here.
It it a telephone corporation. It came
without much noise and has been accepted
with complacency by the average Ameri-
can. The trumpets didn’t fanfare nor the
brass sound when the American Telephone
and Telegraph Company recently told the
public that it proposed to increase ite
capital stock to one billion dollars, hi

ago the idea of transmitting the hunts*
voice over a wire was incubating. The
mere prophecy that billions of* dollar
would be spent in the evolution of that
idea would have stirred die ehtcker-barrel

no one is dased and yet it’s doubtful if
one person in a thousand realizes tbs

but just the same, a billion dollars can not
fly around without attracting attention.

GOVERNMENT WAKES UP
Having cope to the conclusion that
there are T*jt enough telephones in use
in Great Britain,, the government is pre-
paring to alandon its attitude of indif-
ference in tile 'matter of telephone sub-
scribers and run its telephone business
along lines ssuaQy adopted by go-ahead
private companies. In otlasr words, the
Post Office its going to canvass prsyeon
for the tele phone. Although details of
the telephone business drive by the gov-
ernment hay i not yet been officially is-
sued, it is anderstood that a door-to-door
canvass of householders will be inaugurat-

Persuasive, intelligent young men are
now being appointed, it is said, who will
call on people who have not telephones
and explain to them the benefits they are
miming. Accor ling to the Postmaster-
General’s secretary, the post office in fu-
ture will eodeaior to sell telephones ex-
actly in the same way that any other busi-
ness firm sells its goods.
