WHY DR. WILEY
IS FOR WILSON
He Says Taft and T, R. Are
ENEMIES OF PURE FOOD LAW,
Famoui Chemiat Believe* the Health
of the Nation Demands Election of
the Democratic Ticket — He Appeal*
to Those Who, Like Himielf, Have
(Former Chief Chemiat of the U. 8.
Department of Agriculture.)
My appeal Is chiefly to those who,
like myself, have been lifelong Repub
licans. I believe that no kind of an
administration Is going to ruin the
country. I have a high personal re
gard for each one of the candidates for
president and vice president on all
the tickets. All the political platforms
are mainly sound, und all promise ef
fort In behalf of the whole people. My
choice is not based on a platform. It
was determined by my impressions of
the real attitude of the candidates re
specting the public welfare. We are '
creatures of heredity and environ
ment. In our attitude toward great
public questions we are almost alto
gether creatures of environment.
What two men are by environment
least likely to be swayed by special
Interests and most likely to be guided
by devotion to public welfare? Two
of the candidates have already been
tried In the presidential chair, and we
know by experience what may be ex
pected if either of them resumes his
former seat on March 4, 11)13 Mr.
Roosevelt by reason of hig attitude to
ward the food and drug act aban
doned the consumers of the country
to the rapacity of a few mercenary
manufacturers. Under authority of
congress I had carried on extensive
experiments with my so called poison
squad and found that certain sub
stances—viz, benzole compounds, sul
phurous compounds and sulphate of
copper (bluestonei-were Injurious to
The law conferred upon me as chief
of the bureau of chemistry the duty of
acting as a grand jury and determin
ing whether foods and drugs vere adul
terated or mlsbranded. Instead of ap
pealing from my decisions to the courts,
as the law requires, the useis of these
poisons appealed to President Roose
velt. He not only listened to them, but
he abrogated the plain provisions of
the law, appointed a board not con
templated by the law and directed that
these predatory interests might con
tinue their attacks on the health of the
people until this board, unknown to
the law, should decide otherwise.
Can we safely trust the campaign
for public health to Mr. Roosevelt? 1
cannot believe that to be the proper
course. Mr. Taft inherited this exceed
ingly bad condition of affairs from his
predecessor and has not only continued
this Illegal board under whose patron
age adulterators are still poisoning the
people, but he did worse. In the mat
ter of the adulteration of distilled bev
erages in which Roosevelt upheld the
legally constituted authorities Mr. Taft
reversed that policy and threw the
mighty weight of the execntlve office
to the support of the worst lot of adul
terators that ever disgraced a country.
Mr. Wilson and Mr. Marshall by
their strenuous efforts in behalf of the
food laws of their respective states
have given a positive promise to end
such a threatening state of affairs.
They wUI support to the utmost the
officials under the law who nre trying
to protect the public health and will
make short shrift of those who have
brought about these present unbear
Wilson and Marshall by their educa
tion and environment are free from
bias in favor of predatory interests
and are inspired by true patriotic zeal
In behalf of public welfare.
I support the Democratic nominees in
full knowledge that many of the prom
inent Democrats In congress have
been In full sympathy with the paral
ysis of the food law in behalf of the
unholy dollar. But when the Demo
cratic president and vice president
lend the aid of their powerful sympa
thy in behalf of the public health
those of their own party not hi sym
pathy with them will be robbed of
their power for evil. If Roosevelt or
Taft be chosen the soldiers of fraud
and adulteration will be improbably
Intrenched for another four years and
benzoates, sulphates and adulterated
alcoholic beverages will have a new
lease of life
I believe also that President Wilson
will renovate the department of agri
culture, reeking, as It has been for
the past twelve years, wltli scandals
and favoritism. Fie will see to it that
tbe bureau of unlmal Industry will
protect the public health Instead of
the efforts of the packers to sell dis
eased meats under the deceptive
phrase "U. S. Inspected and Pnssed."
Under President Wilson no more Pin
chots will be kicßi>d out of the service,
no aore uuspenluihle McCabes will ex
erclse dictatorial powers. There will
be no more cotton leaks and Jungle
atrocities, no more Everglade swln
dlen. Buccaneering, boasting nnd bun
combe will give place to sane efforts
tor tbe promotion of real agriculture
and tbe public health.
Under Wilson the department or
agriculture will be restored to speak
Ing terras with tho state agricultural
colleges und experiment stations, and
the state officials will no longer be
regarded as inferior beluga, living only
on the largess of a Washington cabal.
1 ask all who want honesty and faith
ful service In the department of agri
culture the promotion of public
health and executives who have
grown to manhood and lived in an en
vironment favorable to that which
makes for the public welfare to vote
for Wilson and Marshall.

TRUTH ABOUT THE TRUST.
'Expected :*xnomi»s From Combina-
Leadera of the new (third term) party
argue Unit industrial monopolies should
be legalized lest we lose the efficiency
of lar;;e scale production and distribu
tion. No argument could be more mis
leading • • •
By HARVEY W. WILEY.
It may be safely asserted that in
America there is no line of business in
which all or most concerns or plants
must be concentrated in order to at
tain the size of greatest efficiency, for,
while a business may be too small to
be efficient, efficiency does not grow In
definitely with increasing size. What
the most efficient size is can be learned
definitely only by experience. The
unit or greatest efficiency Is reached
when the disadvantages of size coun
terltalauce the advantages. The unit
of greatest efficiency is exceeded when
the disadvantages of size outweigh the
advantages. The history of American
' trusts makes this clear That history
First.—No conspicuous American trust
owes its existence to the desire for In
creased efficiency. "Expected econo
mies from combination" figure largely
in promoters' prospectuses, but they
have never been a compelling motive
In the formation of any trust. On the
contrary, the purpose of combining has
often been to curb efficiency or even to
preserve inefficiency, thus frustrating
the natural law of survival of the nt
Second.-No conspicuously profitable
trust owes its profits largely to supe
rior efficiency. Some trusts have been
very efficient, as have some independ
ent concerns, but conspicuous profits
have been secured mainly through con
trol of the market, through the power
of monopoly to fix prices, through this
exercise of the taxing power.
Third.—No conspicuous trust has been
efficient enough to maintain long as
against the independents its proportion
of the business of the country without
continuing to buy up from time to
time its successful competitors
FARMER GETS LESS, BUT-
He Has to Pay More For What He
The United States department of
agriculture has Just announced that
notwithstanding the increased cost of
living among the people as a whole
there was a greater decline in the
prices paid to farmers from Aug. 1 to
Sept 1 this year than there was last
The average farm prices of the 1m
portant crops (corn, wheat, oats, bar
ley, rye, flaxseed, potatoes, tobacco,
cotton and hay. which represent
about three-fourths of the value of all
the country's cropsi declined 7 per
cent during the month, while in that
time last year they declined in price
only 4.4 per cent, and during the last
four years the decline in price aver
aged 3.8 per cent. The average of
farm prices on Sept. 1 was 2.8 per
cent lower than on that date last
Prices paid to farmers on Sept. 1
this year, with comparison of prices
paid on the same date last year, fol
Corn $0,776 J0.659
Wheat 858 .848
Oats 350 .404
Barley 536 .770
Rye 708 .76*
Buckwheat 766 .740
Flaxseed 1.626 2.036
Potatoes '. .650 1.187
Hay 12.140 14.610
Cotton 113 .108

But the prices on tariff nurtured
articles of manufacture which the
farmer has to buy continue to soar
The third term candidate's favorite
reply to the telling, unanswerable ar
guments of Governor Wilson is that
the letter's opinions are based "not on
actual knowledge and experience, but
by reading musty books on political
economy." The colonel himself at a
tender age was put at hard labor! It
is not often that a man whose whole
life has been given up to politics and
offlceholdlng gets as horny handed as
Mr. Roosevelt In the ranks of labor and
Governor Wilson said to the newspa
per men at the New York Press club,
banquet: "Suppose you had a house of
representatives mixed like the present
senate. I think we could nil go fishing
for the next two years." But he's at
the helm, and there won't be any mix
ing. Democrats—that's all.
How many of those who are strug
gling with the "high cost of living" be
lieve there is to be any relief If the
Republican party, which brought It
about, remains in power?
The card stacking at Armageddon
goes merrily on Bight Taft electors In
Missouri announce that If elected they
will vote for the third term candidate.
By applying tbe common sense test to
Rooseveltian romance Governor Wilton
manncps to keep tbe country both
amused and thoughtful.

Iniquities of the Payne-Aldrioh Act,

Told II; Figure*.
Concrete examples of how a protec
tive tariff operates are causing thek
workingman, the "poor man," to do b™
lot of thinking nowadays. He Is be
ginning to understand whether It is not
about time to call a halt on the Re
publican practice of taxing the coat off
his back and threatening him with the
loss of bis shirt and his socks if he
does not submit.
All through the present tariff law,^
passed by a Republican congress and™
Indorsed by a Republican president as
THE BEST TARIFF BILL EVER
PASSED, are to be found discrimina
tions, the higher duty on the cheaper
article, the lower duty on the dearer
article, thus placing on the shoulders
of those least able to bear it the great-"y)
er burden of the protective system.
Here are some illustrations:
The cheapest wool blanketb bear a
duty of K55.42 per cent; the dearest
104.55 per cent.

criminations, gleaned from a swift
conning of some of the schedules. Re
duced to simplest terms, they mean
that the poor man Is taxed higher than
the rich man.
