FORMER CANDIDATE j
FLAYS IDAHO RULE,
!
Court Is Assailed for Keep-'
ing Progressives Off the j
Ticket But Nothing -Said
' About California.
CHICAGO. Dec. 10. Col. Theodore
Roosevelt and Georpe V. Perkins, ot
New York, were the leading llgures
today in the national conference of
the progressive party.
Col. Koosevelt digressing from his
))reiared address, made a vigorous
-ajlack on tile Idaho tupinere court for
the -decision in the recent camjulgn
regarding -n presidential elector.
Perkins took the center of the
stage when it became known that cer
tain fellow progressives had started
a movement to oust him from the na.
tional executive committee because? of
his former corporation connections.
Roosevelt took up the fight for Mr.
Perkins pointing out Pcklua and
calling him by name. Roosevelt de
clared the New- York financier one
ot the men he was proud to have as
a fellow .worker in the. progressive
. party, Later in ;he day I'erkins made
a speech, in which ho asserted that
lie had always been for progressive
measures and resented the intima
tion that he was a late convert to the
cause.
Roosevelt Attacks Court.
Tak'.ng up the Idaho supreme court
decision. Roosevelt said. "I have
"" "iJeeir asked ' bv J II. Gipson. progres
sive state chairman of .Idahon. his
' behalf to present to yoii a few words
as a concrete illustration, of which
court -has done the greatest injusilce
to the people and Is seeking to do a
worse Injustice."
"In Idaho the election law makes
no provision for the election or pros
Idential electors. The supreme court
construed this so as to permit repub
lican and democratic electors to be
put on the ticket by construing a
provision which provided for the clee
tlon of constables and other officers
to Include presidential electors and
1 think it quite right to follow such
a. construction; It is a very loose con
structlon. but necessary.
Progressives Kept Off.
"Rut when it came to the progres
sive party. It made the lightest kind
of a light construction. It construed
so that the progressive party did not
get on the ticket because, under a
section providing for nominations by
petitions, the highest number of vote-,
declared to be necessary to the estab
lishment of a ticket by petition was
3G9. in tho cose or state officials They
declared the electors were not state
officials, therefore, republican and
democratic electors could go on the
tloket under the provisions which per
mitted the election of constables and
other oRlccrs. yet the progressive
ticket could not be nominated by peti
tion because tho highest number ot
votes necessary to nominate by peti
tion was 300 for stato officials. I.
said that the electors were not state
officials. . . ,.,..,
The supreme court, oi mr l, in
states has held more than once tnev
are not national officials. It has dis
tinctly held that, although they exer
cised their function in national poli
tic they exercised It exactly as leg
islations who elected a United States
snaator.
Declares His Defiance.
1 defy any honest. intelligent man
to read that decision or the supreme
court of Idaho: compare the lastly of
construction by which it construed

Uton for electors at all: to permit

HUNTINGTRAiL
LIVING COST!
Chairman Yoakum, of St I
Louis and San Francisco,
Gives Reulls of Some
Investigations
WHAT RAILWAYS GET
The continued agitation of the rea
sons tor tbe high cost of living Is
gradually developing a better under
standing of the situation. The theory,
that high prices are due entirely io
the Increased production of gold, is
disputed and investigations are under-;
way winch show clearly that mere is
an easy road to relief, once we under
stand the actual conditions. The ef
fort to first define the causes that '
lead to the unsatisfactory conditions i
s already bearing fruit and later on
will come the remedies, not the sen
sational remedies advertised by politi
cians and others but actual, effective
remedies that hit at tbe root of the
evil.
Mr. U. F. Yoakum, chairman of the
board of directors of tbe St Louis &
San Francisco Railway company, has
been looking Into the situation from
the standpoint of the cost of gettlns
agricultural products from the pro
ducer to the consumer. The results
of his investigations, show that the
trouble does not lie In excessive rail
way fre'ght rates and that trusu are
only partly responsible The chief
reason for the large difference be
tween the amount received ty tho
producer and that paid by the con
sumer is the antiquated and wasteful
methods of marketing. Mr. Yoakum
says in "Worlds Work" Tor Decem
ber: "It cost (last year In the Unit
ed Statesl seven billion dollars to dls
tiifeute six billion dollars' worth of
products from the farm to the pro
ducer.
"New York city's total bill for one
year for eggs, coffee, rice, cabbage,
onions, milk, potatoes, meat and poul
try, was $164,1 47.0M. Out of that the
farmer received $271JS.0. or 59,
the railroads received $!&.05,000, or
about Sl-2: and the coat of selling
and profits on the products was $HH
81J,0O0. or 35 1-2.
The system of distributing food In
New York is considered disgraceful
by Mr. Yoakum but he states that it
( above the average of American ci
ties. Some months ago a digest of
a report made by an Indepenaeat
committee of citizens of New York
was published In which it was stated
that the annual total food supply is
Mtlmnted to cost $860.0e.000 at the
city terminals; that is, with a'l
freight charges paid. The consumer
is reckoned to pay $500,000,000. It i
flatly stated that tbe difference Is
made up mostly ot cost ot handlin;.
and not of profits. In fact. It is stat
ed tht tbe avcrajse small dealer, the-
(Continued on Pago 5)
Jnt Smith and the friends he had
were without money, and the great
distance of the mine from a railway
made the expenditure of large Slims
necessary If wealth were to be taken
from the mountain. So Smith dis
posed of his Interest, for a modest
sum. to the Morgt-n-Guggenheiin in
terests of Wall street.
The m'nc wa. discovered In- 1900
Ily the spring If 1010 the Morgan
Guggenheim Interests had built a rail
road from civilization to it at an ex
pense of $20,000,000. In April of the
year following the mine began ship-Ping.
And now what a wealth-producer it
is! No other copper mine In thR
v.orld can compare with It. The capi
tal stock of the company which oper
ates It is only $2,500,000. yet Its stock
holders have reeehed $3,000,000 'n
dividends in the last year and a
hall. In that Mine It produced 39.
OOO.OOfi pounds of copper and 53,0fl!
ornces of silver
Jnke Smith little knew what he had
done when he discovered his mine
twelve years ago. but he did well to
rail il Ilononza."

FORMAL PROTEST;

ASKS FOR ARBITRATION
WASHINGTON. II. C. Dec. 10.
Great Rrltaln's formal note or protest
against the section or the lanama j
canal act. which exempts American'
coastwise shipping from payment o' I
tolls in tbe Panama canal, a document r
written by Earl wrey. lirrnsn minis
ter cf foreign affnirs, was present
last night to Secretary Knox by Itrlt-
ish Ambassador James Itryce, who
ridtlie note word for word to Secre
tary Latters at his home.
It Is an elaboration of points of ob-'-jection
In the note presented last
July to the state department. In part '
the note says that whole it was clear i
a violation of the Hpy-Pauncefote
treaty to either remit or refund tolW
to American shii ping through th?
canal the same objection would prob-!
ably apply to coastwise trade ship-1
ping in view of the probable impossi
b'lity of framing regulations that
would not result in preference to '
American shipping. (
Tho Rritish note might be summed ;
up as a definition of differences be- j
tween governments regarding the con-1
"Structlon ot tbe Hay-Pauucefote
treaty, winding up a proiosal or is- J
sues to be settled by arbitration. It
not to be adjusted as a mutual agree
ment for whleh the way remains
open.
Whether Great Rritaln's protest
against the tree passage ot American
ships through the Panama canal will
be submitted to the Hague will be fin
ally determined by the senate in any
event It was intimated today thet
Piiesldent Taft, consistent in his at
titude as principal champion for the
arbitration of disputes between nu
tions. might recommend sach a course
and bhould he, Secretary Knox would
not hold the question as a purely
domestic and int'etnal one and theie
fore not act arbitrarily. There Is
considerable leaning toward sueh a
view among senators today. Senator
Sutherland declared the question was
purely domestic, and therefore not
subject to arbitration.
