Economy rnther tlmn pity and compnssion is be
liind tho child labor movement, declared Dr. Felix
Adler at a mass meeting opening the National Child
Labor Conference at New Orleans.
In its Notes and Comments, the "Navy" says:
"Secretary Daniels is doing a good work in getting
tho price of material for the navy reduced to the
lowest possible limit. Hut he has brought in the
competition of foreign manufacturers, and of
course, the necessary result of this must be that the
men employed in our steel mills must eventually
accept the same price for their labor that the men
do in foreign mills. Eighty-five per cent, of the
cost of the material furnished the government is
for labor. Manifestly, it will be a question of ac
cepting reduced wages or being satisfied with no
wages at all."
In the Canadian House of Commons, January 2!),
a "free wheat" amendment to the government ad
dress was defeated by a majority of 4,"), after sev
eral of the Western members had declared there
was a huge surplus of last season's wheat, prob
ably in excess of 50,000,000 bushels for which there
is no market. They asserted that there was a no
ticeable movement of Western farmers from Can
ada into the Western States as a result of conditions
at present existing in tho West.
California is beginning to feel the effects of the
new tariffs on some of the important industries of
the State. Congressman Knowlnnd shows that dur
ing the first three months of tho Underwood Demo
cratic tariff law there have been increases of 2111
per cent, in the importation of lemons; of $43,802
in raisins, and of $344,290 in unshelled almonds.
Now has any consumer noted any difference in
prices of these products as compared with those of
a year ago? Probably not
MURDER BY DISEASE fiERMS.
Some time ago tho daily press was considerably
aroused over an attempt at blackmail through mail
ing virulent germs to various wealthy persons, to
gothcr with pleas for aid and the offer of an anti
dote or positive cure. Recently in Germany a man
named Hopf was arrested on suspicion of having
killed his wife by inoculation with disease germs
and internal administration of arsenic. During the
trial, information was brought out to the effect 'that
he had probably on former occasions murdered
other members of his family in the same way?- Be
fore the criminal court in Frankfort he was charg
ed with the murder of his father and his mother,
two of his children and his first and second wives,
and with the attempted murder of his third wife.
All the persons killed had been heavily insured.
Arsenic was found in tho bodies of the children and
I lie first wife, but the second wife he cremated.
He denied having inoculated his wives, and there
was no post-mortem evidence that he had done so;
but he stated that he used such bacteria for experi
ments on dogs in connection with certain private
studies, although he was not a bacteriologist or a
medical man. The bacterial cultures were purchas
ed in Vienna, because no German laboratory was
willing to supply the cultures which he ordered, us
ing the name of an alleged scientific institution.
The jury found him guilty of murder in all the
cases except those of his parents. Medical experts
declared that the man was not insane. In Germany,
says The Journal of the American Medical Associa
tion, there is a law forbidding tho sale or giving
of pathogenic micro-organisms to unauthorized per
sons; it is reported that tho Austrian authorities
are about to adopt similar regulations.

Champ Clark, Speaker of tho Kouso,
at Muscotino Saturday evening dwolt
at length upon tho Tariff as ono of the
accomplishments of tho administration,
and rested his caso and that of his party
on tho record that tho Tariff bill lias
mado up to tho present time. And yet
in his discussions ho failed to show how
tho consumer has been benefitted to any
appreciable extent cither by tho im
portation of grain or of cattle.
Ho ignored entirely tho recent criti
cism of tho Democratic Tariff mado by
Congressman Good, of Iowa, who wont
on to show that if tho removal of tho
tariff on cattle caused n reduction in the
prico rocoivod by tho farmer 6f 1 cent
a pound this was of no practical value
to the consumor. 7f a farmer has 100
head of 1,200-pound steers for tho mar
kct and tho Tariff causes a reduction of
1 cent n pound this is n loss to tho far
mer of $1,200 all in ono lump sum. But
what does it amount to for the con
sumer? Tho consumer who has been
paying 32 cents a pound for steak may
get his stoak for 111 cents, but if he
wero buying a pound a day for year tho
reduction to tho consumer would be only
$3.05 for a whole year provided the
packer and the jobber and tho retailer
allowed the cent reduction to pass on to
the consumor. In other words, said
Congressman Good, tho Tariff changes
hit tho producer many times harder
than they can in any way benefit tho in
Tho last census showed 3,000,000 head
of cattlo in Iowa. Tho decline in prices
received by tho producer has amounted
to $S a head, said Good. Hut ho made
his estimate conservative and figured
tho loss at $7.50 a head. This makes a
total loss for tho farmers of Iowa
umountiug to $22,500,000 on cattle alon,j
But tho time has been short and the
now Tariff's full effects hao not yet
been felt by tho producers. When the
full effect has been felt, it is likely that
there will bp von more pronounced ef
fects. And yet the consumer has not noticed
an appreciable reduction in (he cost of
