polluted foods which plainly violate the

Dr. Harvey Wiley sent In his resignation

It is rumored tonight that he will bc

Ilns Magazine. It is understood that he
v.lll remain In Washington, where he will
have a laboratory of his own and will be
able to pursue his work as he sees fit.
Dr. Wiley will al.o devote his vast
energy toward the creation of a national
board of health, over which he hopes a
-ablnet officer will preside. He will, also
ontlnue his work upon the lecture plat
form. Following a meeting of the cabinet to
day, telegrams were sent to all the lead
ins technical colleges and universities in
the United States urging them to make
suggestions as to a suceensor to Dr.
Wiley In the bureau of chemistry.
I Plainly jubilant at the resignation of
this noted expert. Secretary Wilson of
the department of agriculture triumph
antlv announced that he would have a
nnnf voice in the choice of a new bureau
A scene quite unprecedented in Wash
ington official life marked the close of
Dr. WilVp somewhat fevered adminis
tration. "With tears streaming down
their cheeks, hundreds of women clerks,
many employed In other sections of the
department of agriculture, filed in to say
good-bye- So crowded were the ele
vators lealing to Dr. Wiley's office that
numerous women walked up four long
flights of stairs. , ,
In a statement made this evening, ur.
Wllev relates that In an effort to further
restrict the operations of the pure food
law than they have already done, his
i-olleagues in the department of agricul
ture plotted, through false charges, to
separate him from the public service, and
he was only saved by the timely inter
vention of the president.
After the president and a oommit-te-
of congress had completely ex
onerated inc. T naturally expected that
those who had made these false
charges would no longer be in a posi
tion which would make a repetition
of .such an action poeslble. I am still
lft to come Into dally contact with
the men who secretly plotted my de
struction. For the past twenty-nine years I
have endeavored to discharge these
dutioe according to the dictates of my
conscience, the knowledge at my com
mand and tho obligations of my oath.
In retiring, it seems fitting that I
shouid state briefly the causes which
have led me to this step. The funda

or directly relieved from further con

A few of the instances of this kind
arc well known. Amoncr these may
be mentioned the manufacture of so
called whisky from alcohol, colors
ajul flavors: the addition to food
products of bcnozlc acid and its salts:
of sulphurous auld and Its salts: of
sulphate of copper, of saccharine and
of alum, the manufacture of so-called
wines from Pomace, chemicals and
, colors: the floating .of oysters, often
in polluted waters, for the purpose
of making thorn look fatter and larger
than they really are for the purposes

rightfully belongs to another product

a result of these restrictions, I have

have just vacated.
T propose to devote the remainder
of my life, with such ability as I may
have at my command, and with such
opportunities as may arise, to the
promotion of the principles of civic
righteousness and Industrial Integrity
which underlies the food and drugs

"Few presidents, none since Lincoln,
did more to sot before the people right
moral standards, particularly regarding
the holding of public office.
"However, no one knew Roosevelt bet

What Roosevelt Did.
"And he knew he had never studied
the great railroads ofi.thls country and
their bearing upon the situation that I
have described to you. So what do we
find that he did?
"He said that the ground had been pre
pared and said that they had arranged
for a constructive president to take hold.
He selected the man, President Tuft, On
the constructive side, It was a bad guess
"Now, I have referred to the record
of Roosevelt and not only is It open, but
it is the duty at this critical hour to
point out that record. Study that record
carefully. This is no time to follow any
blind sentiment. The least mistake by
congress or the government regarding tfie

said the man in the audience.
"Mavbe." said the senator, "but you
did not have the cash in North Dakota
banks to move the crops, and that s
where you formers suffered.
"When that artificially created panic
was precipitated, more than ?400.000,000
of country bank money was locked up
down in Wall street. The New York
