colonists say they have been informed
that 1S6 .federals now at El Tigre hare

retracted. Tigre people made a great

Proposes to Reduce Cost of
Foodstuffs by Decreasing
Cost of Production. ,
FARMERS NOW PAY
I Beverly. Mass- Oct. 12- Radical leg
j islstkm J favor of tbe American farm-
I' er and eonsumen, as a means of solving
the .-luestfoa of high cost of living is
urged by president Taft in a letter to
the governors of the states.
President Taft proposes to reduce the
cost of foodstuffs on the American din
ner table by reducing the cost to the
farmer of producing his crops. This
would be done by establishing in the
interest of the farmer a financial ma
chine which would jrivo him access to
all the money centers of the world and
afford him credit at greatly reduced
rates and upon more advantageous
terms than he now receives. ' The com
plete development of our agricultural
resources which this would make posi
ble. thinks president Taft, would go
a long wav toward settling, the prob
lem of the high cost of Irving.
"What this plan offers," writes presi
dent Taft, "is a means to secure this
country greater productivity, at less
cost, from the farms that are now un
der cultivation, and, above all, to give us
more farms and more farraeES.
The plan suggested is based upon the
principles of agricultural cooperative
credit now in use in practicaHy every
country of Europe. United States legis
lation, in the opinion of president Taft,
is essential to tbe successful adoption
of this plan and he has invited, the
governors of the states to a confereiwe
upon this subjsst at the time Of the. an
nual meeting M govenfltB Washing
top in Decttflisste. .
FarMstt Pay HfekiBterest.
The 12.000.0M farmer?of the Halt
ed States add eta year te the ua&aml
wealth $8.4.00,00,00u. They are doing
this on a borngtwed capital of $6,040,
000.000. On this sum they pay annu
ally interest charges of $510,000,000
Counthtg conrmissions and renewal
charges, the interest rate paid by the
farmer of this country is averaged at
S 1-2 percent, as compared to a rate of
4 1-2 to 3-1-2 percent paid by the farm
er, for instance, of France or Germany.
"Again, the interest rate paid by the
American farmer is considerably higher
than that paid bv our industrial cor
porations, railroads, or municipalities.
Vet, I think, it will be admitted that
the security offered bv the farmer In
his farm lands is quite as ound as that,
offered by industrial corporations. Why,
then, will not the investor furnish the
farmer with monev at as advantageous
rates as he is willing to supply it to
the industrial corporations? Obviously.
the advantage eniored By the industrial
corporation lies in the financial ma
chinery at his command, which permits
it to place its offer before the investor
in a more attractive and more readily
negotiable form. The farmer lacks this
machinery, and. lacking it, he suffers
unreasonably. This is not theory.
Credit System for Farmers.
President Taft stronglv deprecates
anv idea of establishing cooperative
credit in the United States through the
support of government subsidies.
"We must establish a credit system
of, for, and bv the farmers of the United
States," he writes. "The country en
ioys today great prosperity, the facto
ries are birev. the workingn-en are em-
pldved, and everywhere the wheels of
industry hum. The farmer scares in
this ff(.nral rm.meritv. The proposal
which I make is not to subsidize the
American farmer. Tortunatelv for the
country ho docs not nei it. nor would
he accept it-"
President Taft warns the jroveraora
that in this plan, as in all financial
schemes, there is room for harmful ex
ploitation for personal jrain.
"The most essential point to bear in
mind is the need of the responsibility
for economically and honestly eonduct
inz institutions. Such assumption is
the essential precedent for obtainiiuT
the confidence of the American as well
as of the European investing public"
If this safeguard is siren the farm
land banks president Taft is convinced
that he can secure the fanners a mar
ket for their mortjroze loans not only
in all of the bie money centers of this
country, but also on tbe exchanges of.
Europe, and thus afford the American
farmer the capital necessary for the
full exploitation of the entire agricul
tural resources of this country.

Minneapolis, Minn., Oct. 12. Criticism
of president Taft and Theodore Roose

keynotes of the speech here and ad

Minnesota by William J. Bryan.
"Mr. Roosevelt did not come into the
Progressive vineyard at the 11th

manv speeches. "He came in quarter
of 12 and then made affidavit that
there was nobody in the vineyard when

He entered cautiously and then called

Lopez was urged by the reward of

he was asked to t!gn, and was asked
to charge falsely Orozco and Cordova

In his testimony before senator Fall,

Lopez, remained in jail until last Sat

V CALL TIIK ICIJfG
TO GIVE EVIDENCE.
El Paso, Tex., Oct. It, 1912.
Editor El Paso Herald:
It seems we have a king in his castle
on North Oregon street. As'a "king can
do no wrong" our senatorial committee
headed by judge Fall is apparently go
ing to get some "radical steps" thrown
at it. Is this offended and.' dignified
hero of-bloodless battles going to take
personal vengeance on senator Fall and
Mr. McCreary, or is he going-to annex
Texas?' How horrible it must be to
hurt his majestic feelings.
According to his lament in tils
morning's Times, he feels very much
hurt. I would suggest that he tell the
senate committee more of his trouble
and explain where he gets his police
authority, and why he has so many men
held 40 days for extradition and then
sends no evidence. I wouldllke to have
senator Fall's committee ask him if he
has ever used our country to plot the
burning of bridges in Mexico. Also ask
aim if he has not organised and armed
men in Texas to be used; in the Mexican
revolution, and if he has not Tiolated

The Real TarnlHR Pelnt.
The contest today was regarded by
the ball players as the real turning
point in the world's series. A defeat for
the Giants would make it necessary to
win three games in succession, while
the Red Sox, with three games already
won, would then have only to win one
out of the next three games. A victory
for the Giants would put the two teams
on even terms again.
The order of batting was:
