'ACTS 8PEAK LOUDER
Mr. ItooBovclt testified before the
campaign fund Investigating commit
tee that ho know that II. C. Frlck
contributed heavily to the Itoosevelt
campaign fund In 1904. Mr. Frlck is
ono of the strong men In the Steel
Trust. 8o are J. Plerpont Morgan and
George W. Perkins.
Roosevelt said no contributions were
accepted with tho expectation of fav
ors. Everyone familiar with Dig Busi
ness and Dig Politics known that It is
'not customary to specifically hang "ex
pectatlqns" on campaign contributions.
Things aren't done that way and It Is
julte likely that HooHcvelt ordored tho

Judge Pnrkor charged In 1301 that
tho corporations wore financing Boose
volt's campaign. Itoosevelt In u char
acteristic oulburst declared Hint the
Judge's charge was "atrociously false."
Well, tho present Investigation bus
proved conclusively that tho corpora
tions did llnnnce thu Itoosevelt cam
paign. John 'Plorpont Morgan and II. 0.
Vrlck, each contributed more tbnu
$100,000 to the Itoosevelt campaign.
Ilarrlman and his assoclateH contrib
uted $250,000. Morgan and Frlck were
the big tnen In the United States Steel
corporation. It is not charged that
they asked any favors when they gave
tho money. They knew the game too
well. Ati far as tho record shown, they
wore high-minded patriots who wanted
to see a great man chosen president.
Uut along In 11107 Morgan and I-'rlck
and the other Dig Men of the Steel
Trust decided thai they wanted the

REPUBLICAN PAPER FLOPS
Tho Xcnla Republican, for 25 years
a staunch advocate of Republicanism
and tho most Influential paper in
Greene county, has bolted President
Taft and tho Republican ticket, and
will support Governor Woodrow Wil
son. In an editorial the paper In ef
fect said that the Republican party in
this campaign Is In sympathy with the
dangerous Interests that have in tho
past prospered too greatly, often by
corrupt means, undor O. O. P. regimes,
Tho party, It Is asuortcd, has disinte
grated until it contains less than a
third of tho voters. Tho editor sayB
tho peoplo arc entitled to a change and
they can get It by voting the Demo
cratic ticket. An oxcerpt from tho
editorial reads: "The political revolu
tion which has been Impending for
years seems due. The peoplo want a
change. Aro they Justified? Wo think
they aro. Tho section that still re
tains the name Republican contains
less than one third, perhaps not more
than n fourth of tho voters at the pres
ent moment. It offers no real opposi
tion to tho dangerous class that has
prospered too grcatiy, and often by
corrupt mothods. The editor of tho

WHY TRUSTS MULTIPLIED
It doesn't require any testimony
from Democrats to show that tho "In
visible government" which Roosevelt
complains of Is a paitueishlp between
big buslneHS mid the Republican par
ty. Thu testimony of Republicans can
bo cited to show that Is true. The
testimony of the same gentlemou
shows that Roosevelt, whllo president,
was ono of the paitners lu this "Invisi
ble government." George R. Sheldon
of New York, treasurer of the Repub
lican national committee in 1008 told
tho scnato investigating committee,
that tho records of Treasurer Hllss of
tho 1904 Republican national commit
tee, showed that tho trusts contributed
7.114 per cent of Teddy's 1004 cam
paign fund, lu tho tight of thu above
testimony, many ran see why tho
trusts multiplied so rapidly during thu
Roosevelt regime. Senator La Fol-
lette, a good Republican, says that dur
ing thu presidential administration of
the Third Term Party leader the
trusts multiplied eight fold and In
creased their capital stock from $:t,
000,000,000 lo 12,000,00(1,000.

Advised To Accept Methods
Of South Americans
Waablngton, Oct. 10 Tho echoes of
John Barrett's appeal to American
business men to wnke up and reach
out for tho great trado of tho southern
American hemisphere, In view of tho
early opening of tho Panama ennui,
aro still reverberating through the ex
ecutive department buildings of the
national capital, nnd It Is believed that
what he said on his return from Eu
rope, where ho wan brought face to
face with the highly organized com'
merclal mechanism whereby that con
tinent Is strengthening Its hold on
South American trade, will result in
unusual efforts on the part of the fed
eral government to Induce the Ameri
can exporters to study tho people to
our south, and try to secure a fair
sharo of their trade.
"Tho government has already done
much," said a high official of the de
partment, "but It has been unable to
awaken the interest of the American
explorer, who neglects that great field,
or, if not neglecting it, offers his goods
In such a way as to run counter to
South American customs nnd preju
dices. In the first place, our exporters
do not send Into that country traveling
men who speak Spanish. In the second
place, they do not publish their cata
logues nnd prlco lists in Spanish, nor
state their prices In tho Spanish coin
values, in tho third place, they do
not consult thu preferences of tho
South Americans In packing goods.
In the fourth place, they do not cater
to the South American custom of long
"But why continue? The list of
Ametlcnii omissions so far as South
American tiade Is concerned, is a long
one, and in consequence, notwithstand
ing the rnct that we aro constantly
looking ror an extension or our foreign
markets, so as to dispose or our sur
plus goods, wo utterly neglect the sim
ple means which would entitle us to
share lu the rapidly growing trade ot
South Amorlca, already aggregating
many hundreds of millions of dollars a
"The department of commerce nnd
labor, however, will continue its ef
forts to have American exporters seo
tho Importance of this great market,
right at our doors, and It may be that
by the time tho canal is ready for use,
we shall have come to understand
something of the means which must be
adopted If thnt market is to become
"Mr. Barrett's ndvlce, given after
his recent tour through Europe, was
tlmoly. It wns spoken, too, by a man
whoso olllclal position gives him the
right to speak on thnt question, and I
sincerely hope thnt what ho has said
will add considerably to our depart
ment mail, by Inducing American ox
porters to wrlto us asking for Informa
tion concerning theso southern mar
kets and how best to reach them."
It Is Mr. Barrett's heller that If tho
American exporters do not get busy
within tho noxt decade Europo will
havo entrenched ItBelf so securely as
to make dlslodgmcnt quite out of tho
question. The oponing of the canal,
ho says, will stir further interest in
southern trado, and perhaps drive tho
Amerlcun exporters to comblno for tho
purpose of getting a share of It.
