' It has now resolved itself into a
question as to whether or not the
Republicans mean to cut off their
noses to spite their faces that is
the whole situation. In a straight
issue between Republicans and Dem
ocrats, Doctor Wilson is hopelessly
swamped. There can bo no doubt
about this. The battle would be over
now if it were not for the injection
of a third party ticket, designed by a
few mal-contents to pull down tho
whole Republican organization, State

During tho last few weeks tho
strongest kind of efforts have been
put forth to encourage the belief
among wage workers of the country
that the Democrats and their presi
dential candidate are friends and
benefactors of labor. That they
are no such thing is known to every
Intelligent wage worker in tho na
tion. Then he read a resolution adopted
by t'he recent Wisconsin State Feder
ation of Labor at tho annual conven
tion in 1912, severely criticising tho
officers of the American Federation
of Labor (meaning Samuel Gomp
ors) for attempting to throw their
support to Wilson; denouncing the
Democratic candidate as "Ignorant
of the alms, purposes and character
of labor unions and tho labor move
ment," and calling upon all members
of the Federation to oppose Profes
sor Wilson as "ineffective and use
less." 'This," said Chairman Moore, "is
tho attitude of labor everywhere.
There can ho no question that tho
great body of American workmen ap
preciate tho necessity for protective
tariff if the upward and onward
movement of organized labor in this
ountry is to continue.
Rut unfortunately many wage
earners, particularly in this state,
have been laboring under tho delu
sion that in supporting Roosevelt
they were opposing Wilson.
"Our problem has been to show
them that precisely the contrary is
tho case, that by supporting Roose

for Congress, they are actually vot

candidates; that tho utmost they

Washington party leaders Is to de

By ELBERT HUBBARD.
Written fprthe American Economist.)
Perhaps you remember tho tlmo. It
Was not so Unc ao. The papers
printed much about the farmers of tho
west U6lng their corn for fuel. They
burned It burned their corn for two
very good reasons. To begin with, It
waa cheaper than coal; and to end
with, the price of corn was so low
that It didn't pay to haul It to market.
In 1R94, and for two years thereaf
ter, corn sold In Kannas for 10 cents
a bushel. In other irordi, a man had
to ratso a bushel of corn for the price
of a shave. If a farmer wnnted to
buy a pound of binder twine he had to
sell two bushels of corn to get. It,
Today binder twine b11b for about
7 cents a pound. And what Is the
price of corn? Why, corn Is C5 cents
Well, back in '94 a fanner bought a
farm wagon of a Hutchinson (Kansas)
dealer for $60. It was a cood wagon,
and the farmer took care of It It
pays to treat a cood thine woll. This
makes it better and gives It longer life.
The other day the farmer came back
to this same Hutchinson dealer, and
said he wanted to buy another wagon
Just like the one he cot In '94.
"It was a good one," he said. "That's
why I want another one just llko it.
How much are you going to charge
me for It?"
The dealer rubbed his chin, and
paseed his fingers through his hair.
"Well, now, let me see. It seems to
me you paid J60 for that wagon, didn't
"That's right." said the fanner;
"All right, tftat same kind of a wag
on a little better, perhaps, for some
Improvements have been added that
wagon will cost you $75."
"What!" exclaimed tho farmer." Ho
was surprised, and began to object,
and then wantd to know tho whys
and the wherefores of tho riso In
"Well," said tho dealer, "tho ma
terial, like lumber and Iron and steel,
has gone up In price, wages have ad
vanced and It coBts me moro to buy
a wacon now. Maybe the tariff has
something to do with It, too."
At the mention of the word "tariff"
tho farmer went straight up In the
air. He began to expound against tho
theory of the whole thine.
The dealer let him run along for a
while and them asked again. "Say,
when you boueht that wagon from me
In 94, I think you paid for It In corn,
"Yes sure I did," said tho farmer;
"but what's that eot to do with It?"
"And, let me see. Corn was 10 cents
a bushel, and you had to elve me COO
Wusbels of corn for that wagon, didn't
you?" asked tat dealer acaln.
"Yee, I guess I did," answored the
farmer, after rtcalllne In his own
mind that com was selling at only 10
cents a bushel In those days.
"Ill tell you what you do," said Uie
dealer; "bring me In 600 bushels of
corn tomorrow, and I'll elve you this
"Well, say, hold on" began tho
farmer. The dealer Interrupted him in
turn. "Rut that isnt all," he said. "In
addition to the waeon, I'll let yon and
your wife go over to tho warehouse
and pick out a carrlago. Then you go
and help yourself to the best six-foot
binder in the shop. And "
"Here, wait a minute " started the
"I'm not throueh yet," said tho deal
er. "When your wife comes In, I'll lot
her co to tho hardware department
and pick out one of tho best ranges
wo've got. And, Just for good meus
ure, you tell your wife that sbo can
have enough kitchen utensils to re
furnish her kitchen. Now, I'll give you
that and all of that for 600 buBhels
if corn. In '94 the same amount of
corn got you Just the wagon. That's a
fair proposition, Isn't It?"
Tho farmer waa stunned. Ho hem
med and hawed, removed his hat, and
scratched his bead.
"I'll Just work this out in figures
ind show you what you nre gottlng,"
continued the dealer. "We'll put tho
wagon down at $75; tho self-binder at
$125, and that'll get you a beauty; the
carriage at $125; the kitchen rango at
$50, and that certainly ought to bo a
good one! and the kitchen utonslls at
$15, and that ought to buy a fow. Add
these together and you havo $390. Fig
ure COO bushels of corn at 65 cents a
bushel and you have $390."
Tho farmer dug up his $75 for the
wagon without saying another word
and motioned to the dealer to join
him at the cigar stand for a "smoke."

County Commissioner and also Stato

most sterling honesty and integrity,
and will discharge faithfully every
duty entrusted to him. Farmers,
who bear tho heaviest burdens of
taxation, are not represented in the
lawmaking bodies of tho country to

fact affords one of tho best reasons
why Mr. Hill should be elected. Ho '
