SUGAR ON FREE LIST
In letter te Celeradw Mu President
Taft Cites Hew Free Sagar "Weald
"Wipe OHt Beet Sagar Plants.
Washington, D. C Nov. 2. "The
.Democratic party Is committed to free
.sugar and if it is successful at the
polls we may expect as one, of its first
legislative acts dthe passage of a bill
to admit sugar duty free at our ports
of entry," says president Taft In a let
ter to Crawford Hill, of Denver.
'Democratic orators may talk until
their throats are hoarse and of their
interest in the American farmer, but
tne fact remains that in March of
this j ear the governing tariff body
of the Democratic party, the Pemo-
ratic members of the ways and means
ommittee, by unanimous vote passed
the bill to place sugar on the free list
.ind this bill was passed by a Demo
c ratic house
"Our present crop of sugar consti
tutes 15 percent of the entire annual
i onsumption of the United States. We
have 71 beet sugar factories in IS
states, Colorado and Michigan leading
n ith 17 factories each. Thousands of
American farmers are engaged in the
ultivation of the sugar beet and the
factories which buy their product em
ploy about 25,000 men.
Protection Far CoBsumern.
"The Republican party stands for
adequate protection of the beet sugar
industry. Such protection is in the in
terest of the United States treasury,
it contributes to the growth of our
national policy of irrigation and re
clamation and it is the shield of the
American consumer against an in
creased price for a household neces
sity. "Free sugar cannot be defended
from any angle. It is in conflict with
the theory of a tariff for revenue only
and its effect would be to make al
most certain the monopolistic control
of a great industry. It would diminish
the revenue of the government $68,
000,000 annually and by reducing the
world's production by nearly 1,000,
004 tons a year raise the price of
sugar to the consumer. Permanently
lower prices for sugar in the United
States and freedom from European
speculative markets can only be se
cured by prodncing our sugar under
the American flag.
"If the United States should abol
ish the duty on sugar it would stand
alone among civilised nations as the
only sugar producing country wltn
sugar on the free list. The production
of beet sugar has a tendency to keep
down the price of sugar to the con
sumer. Free sugar would force the
suspension of our beet sugar factor
ies, for they would not only be forced
to compete 'with .cheap foreign fac
tories, but they would be under the
further handicap imposed by a
bounty of 72 cents per 100 pounds of
sugar shipped to the United States
from Russia, the second largest beet
sugar country in the world. I can
not believe that the intelligent voters
of your state are willing to put the
growers of Colorado into competition
with the peasants of Russia on these
Development of West.
"Permit me to say a word also with
regard to another subject in which
Colorado and other neighboring states
are interested. Your great western
country needs development. It must
have men and capital and It must be
able to offer inducement to attract
both. .The Republican party does not
believe in a conservation policy that
would tie up our national resources
and deny their use to the legitimate
homesteader, miner and capitalist
"We are holding the part of the
domain that has coal, phosphate and
oil until congress shall make provis
ion for its disposition by lease on
profitable terms to private capital
-with the retention of sufficient title
in the government to control and pre
vent monopoly in ownership and con
sequent exorbitant charge to the pub
lic for these commodities. The prob
lem which the Republican party is
solving is how to save and how to
utilize, how to conserve and still de
velop; for no sane person can contend
that it is for the common good that
nature's blessings are only for unborn
PLEADS WITH WOMEX TO
SUPPORT COL. ROOSEVELT.
Denver, Colo., Nov. 2. Miss Jane
Addams, of Hull House, Chicago, made
a plea for women's support of the
Progressive party candidates before a
large audience here The meeting was
under the auspices of the Woman's
Progressive league, of Denver, and
although one man had a seat of honor
upon the stage, the audience was
composed half of men.
Miss Addams said Col. Roosevelt
had been charged with being change
able. This, she said, 'was true and
indicated mental development and an
ability to improve in the understand
ing of changing conditions.
Rochester. X. Y , Nov 2. Governor
Woodrow Wilson in his speeches hero
directed an attack on the United States
senate as a "citadel of private Inter

possession of that body for a genera

fight for the rest of his life to destroy
The governor said that monopoly
could be prevented by making illegal
all Unfair methods of competition. He
outlined among these the system of
underselling in a local market and the
discrimination of monopolies which
control raw materials against firms
that would not enter their combination
"If you postpone your reforms long
jou will smash every party in the
United States, because there are things
to be done and we can nit wait"

Buffalo. N. T.. Nov. 2. That "while
in a boastful mood," governor Wilson.
speaking in Madison Square Garden
made a confession which clarified the
positions of himself and the Wall
street fnterests in the present cam
paign was the assertion of governor
Johnson In a speech at Convention
"This fight is between. common hu
manity on the one hand and those who
wish to exploit common humanity on
the other," he declared.
" "The gentlemen In Wall street don't
bet five to one on their destruction
and they don't go to their business
smiling and complacent when they ex
pect a deluge nest week.'
"This he said in respect to his own
attitude in the campaign and what
he believed. He is absolutely correct.
Wall street does not go to Its business
smiling and complacent when It ex
pects a deluge.
"When Mr. Wilson made that con
fession he relieved us from the Ne
cessity of making inferences and
drawing conclusions, because he told
just where Wall street stands in this
"And so. my friends, you have the
position of Wall street from the very
lips of Mr. Wilson, in the contempla
tion of his boasted success. Wa
street is smiling and complacent."
