ACCIDENT TO MRS.
DE VOE IS FATAL
Aged Sears Woman Injured at
Canning Factory DUsat
UNCONSCIOUS TWO WEEKS
Foot Crushed by Stepping on Endless
Chain in Husking
Mrs. Corinda DeVoe, the aged lady
who was injured at the Rock Island
Canning company's factory in Sears
over a month ago died yesterday at 3
o'clock at St. Anthony's hospital, where
Kiie has been confined since the acci
dent. Mrs. DeVoe, who was 77 years
of ago, was employed at the canning
factory husking sweet corn, and had
been at her work for a little over a
week. One morning in crossing the
room she stepped into the endless
chain carrier that removed the refuse,
and suffered very painful injuries. Her
ankle was badly crushed and the bones
of the leg injured.
She was attended by Dr. Eddy, of
Milan, and it was marly a week later
before she was removed to the hos
pital. The result of the accident would
not have been fatal to a person of
fewer years, but with the shock and
weakness Mrs. DeVoe rrmld not stand
the strain. For over two weeks she
had been iineonscious tin" greater part
of the tim, and barely remained alive.
Mrs. DeVoe was a native of Peters
borough. N. Y.. and came to Sejirs in
1SS0 with her husband. Anthony, who
d'ed about eight years ago. Since the
death of her- husband she had been
making her home with her son. Dudley,
in Sears, but felt that she must do what
he could to suport herself. The em
ployment offered at the canning fac
tory was pleasant and she had worked
there in former seasons.
She is survived by two sons, Dudley,
of Sears, and Anthony, of Rock Island,
and by her daughter, Mrs. John Sie
grist. of Rock Island. The funeral is
to be held tomorrow afternoon at 2
o'clock from the home of her son, Dud
ley, in Sears.
Kunrrnl of .lamrn t'nrnry.

!ie late Saturday afternoon was held
this morning from the Sacred Heart
church. The services were conducted
by Rev. Father Lockney, and inter
ment was made in the Calvary ceme
tery. A large number of. the friends
of the aged gentleman were pre-nt
to pay their last respects at his grave.

THE COMMON PEOPLE
STRUGGLE TO EXIST
(Continue'! from Tuire One.)
manufacturers are reducing their out
put and running on a much smaller
scale than was the case several years
ago. They are fiuding that the Ding
ley tariff does not produce the endur
ing prosperity, and men the more con
servative of the republican manufac
turers here are saying very rreeiytnat
tariff revision must come, and come
soon. Tariff revision, for the sake of
the manufacturer who wants to ex
pand anil develop his business, is a
phase of the agitation which is receiv
ing a great deal more attention than
the believers in the -"stand pat" gos
pel are willing to acknowledge.
A II ml Crop Itriinrt 'rm Ohio.
Considerable anxiety is manifested
here over the report made a few days
ago by the Ohio department of agri
culture, in which it is stated that the
crops this year were to be much small
er than those of 1J03. The estimate of
the corn crop is that it will not be
more than three-fourths of a normal
year, while the estimates of the wheat
crop do not provide for more than
one-half of the full product, .the har
vest per acre being about four bushels
short of the net average. The wheat
area just harvested was the lowest in
a long series of years, and the total
production was the lowest, with the
exception of 1S9G and li00, in 25 years.
This will undoubtedly have an effect
upon the railroad returns in this state,
and upon the incomes of the farmers.
The "stand pat" people in this state
are also considerably puzzled over the
fact that in spite of the inordinately
high duties levied on raw wool the
production in this great wool-growing
state has been steadily decreasing. It
is beginning to be feared by those who
want the tariff to be revised only up
ward, that it will not be long before
the demand of tile manufacturer for
free wool must of needs be granted.

Increase in Cost of Living. &
I 1 a
In the democratic campaign text
book the following interesting figures
are given on the cost of living undei
the republican administration.
The July (1904) report of the bureau
of labor, based upon new estimates fo
2.567 families, gives the' percentage of
expenditures for the principal items
entering into the cost of living of thost
2.5G7 families as follows:
Itms. Per ent.
Principal and interest on mort
gage on homes l.oS
Clothing 14 J4
lalor and other organization ft-es
Furniture and utensils
Books and newspapers
Amusement and vacation
riickness and death
Other expenses 5.87
In 1902 the Massachusetts bureau
of statistics of labor gave the results
of an investigation of the earnings ana
expenditures of 152 workingmen's
families: by families with incomes
above $1,200 the percentage of expen
diture for rent was 12.43 per cent; it
diminished from 21.90 per cent to C.8
per cent for families of incomes of
less than $400. The average for food
was about 49 per cent; fuel and lighi
averaged 6.91 per cent (7.91 for the
poorer families down to 4.40 for fami
lies with large earnings.) Clothing av
eraged 11. C9 per cent (9.15 per cent
for the $150 families up to 14. 66 pei
cent for the "$750 and $1,200" fam
ily.) Families with incomes less than
$600 had a'.most nothing left for fur
niture, education, newspapers, amuse
Based upon all these various esti
mates the relative expenditures for
various items are as indicated below.
The table shows the probable expen
diture for each of the more important
items entering into the cost of living,
and the estimated tariff taxes on each
and all of these items:
Yearly expenditure of $940.00.

Total tariff tax per family
Space will not permit detailed ex
planation of how the estimate of th
tariff tax on each item in the table was
reached nor is such explanation nec
essary; the methods of comparison
and of making deductions from official
reports and other reliable data were
the same in all the articles, and it wiil
suffice to give one or two articles a.i
illustrations: for example, the table
contains the statement that the tariff
tax on lioots and shoes is only $1.35
per family, of which the government
gets only 12 cents, while the beef,
leather and other trusts get $1.23.
This estimate was reached in the fol
lowing manner: According to Hon.
William B. Rice, of Rice & Hutchins.
one of the largest boot and shoe man
ufacturing concerns in the country,
and according to other well-informed
experts on boot and shoe matters, the
duty of 15 per cent on hides put on
by the Dingley bill in 1S97, has entail
ed a tax upon the American people of
not less than $2,000,000 annually, and
has added from 5 to 8 per cent to the
cost of every American made pair of
boots and shoes.
Now what is "from 5 to S per cent
of the cost of boots and shoes?" To
answer this question we must know
what the American people pay for
their boots and shoes. The factory
value of leather boots and shoes pro
duced in 1900 was $261,02R.5S0. Our
exports were valued at $4,197,566. The
retail value of boots and shoes sold at
home was approximately $3 45.000, 0OO.
to which should be added $26,550,625
for custom work, making $371.f00.ooo
as the total cost of leather boots and
shoes. "Five to S per cent" of $371,-
ooo.ooo is $18,500,000 to $30,00"1,000.
Adopting a mean between these two
extremes, we see that the tariff adds
to the cost of boots and shoes $23,000.
o, or $1.35 per family. Now the
duty collected on imported boots and
shoes and on materials which enter
in their manufacture amounts to only
about $2,000,000 a year; consequently
the government receives only 12
cents per family, leaving $1.23 for the
beef, leather and other trusts, as stat
ed in the table.
An additional illustration may b
given in the case of woolen goods.
The table states that the tariff ta
paid by the American people on wool
en goods amounts annually to $11 per
family. This estimate is arrived at
The factory value of woolens manu
factured in this country in 1900 was
$296.990,4S4. According to the Sta
tistical Abstract the raw wool retained
for consumption amounted to 5.72
pounds per capita in 1900 and to 5.74
pounds in 1903. As our population in
creased more than 5 per cent from
1900 to 1903, and as the values of
clothing of all kinds averaged 5 per
cent higher in 1903 than in 1900
though the prices of wool were about
the same it is fair to add 7 per cent
to the 1900 product to obtain the fac
tory value of woolens in 1903. This
would make it $318,000,000.
The imports of woolen goods for
consumption in 1903 amounted to $19,
302.007. on which a duty of $17,564,694
was collected, averaging 91 per cent
on the foreign cost of the goods. In
cluding transportation costs from for
eign countries the imported woolens
when they reached our shores were
worth fully $38,000,000.
Adding together the values of wool
ens produced and imported we get
$356,000,000. Deducting 36,000.000 as
used for other purposes, there remains
$320,000,000 as the factory and import
value of all woolens used for clothing.
Adding 15 per cent for profits, we find
that the total value of woolen mater
ials ready to make clothing was, in
1903, about $368,000,000. The retail
value of all kinds of woolen clothing
and goods was probably 60 per cent
greater, or $590,000,000. This gives an
average of $34.64 per family, which is
far below Edward Atkinson's estimate.
Our imports of raw wood in 1903
were valued at $21,25S,031, on which
a duty of $11,631,048 was collected.
Hence the total duty collected on wool
and woolens was $29,195,736, or $1.72
per family. As only about one-tenth
of our woolen goods are imported and
as the tariff cost of these goods is at
retail, about $1.50 per family, it is rea
sonable to assume that the tariff cost
of the ten times as many domestic
woolens is. at retail. $10 per family.
In the table the total tariff cost is es-

timated at $11 per family, of which
$J.72 went to the government.
According to these estimates, which
under rather than over estimate the
amount of the tariff tax. the average
family spent in 1903, including the
values of goods consumed at home,
about $940. Of this $940. $S30 went
for goods, $16.52 went as legitimate
taxes to the government, and $94 went
to swell the profits of the trusts and
monopolies. That is. $1 out of every
$10 expended by an American family
goes to protected monopolies. The
tariff tax. therefore, unnecessarily in
creases the cost of living 10 per cent,
and amounts to $1,599,000,000 for the
17,000,000 families in this country. It
is this tax which is mainly responsible
for the unparalleled growth of trusts
since the passage of the Dingley act
in 1S97, for the dangerous concentra
tion of wealth in the hands of a com
paratively few, and for the rapid in
crease in the number of multi-millionaires.
Every man who votes to "stand
pat" on Dingley "protection" votes to
tax his family 10 per cent a year on
all its expenditures and to turn the
proceeds over to the monopolists, who
already own or control a majority of
all the wealth of the country.
Although the amount of expendi
tures for tariff taxes varies in the dif
ferent classes of families, according
to their incomes and general expenses,
yet it is approximately correct to say
that the percentage paid on account of
tariff is about the same in the various
The expenditures of the average
family in the wage earning classes
probably does not exceed $780 a year.
Those of the average family in the sal
ary earning and professional classes
will probably average $1,200. Those of
the average family in the employing
classes, exclusive of the fanners, will
probably average $4,000 or $5,000 a
year. We have then the following es
timate of the tariff tax paid by the
average American family:

Expert Corset Advice.
Miss Nolan, of New York, will
be at our Corset Department all
next week demonst ; at ing the La
Vida and "W. B." Corsets, show
ing th;tt they are the perfection of
corset making. She will also ex
plain liow the wearing of improperly
fitted corsets is harmful.
We should like for as many ladies
of the tri-cities and vicinity, as can
possibly come, to hear Miss Nolan
on this important subject.
Thousands of women are now
wearing the wonderful whalebone

press upon the bust. There is ab

back, where there are strong mus
cles to sustain the pressure of lac

hand-made, full gored and full
whaleboned. Kach pair is cut on
the bias; only imported materials
are employed in their manufacture.
And the new long hip La Vida gives
perfect set to the new habit skirts.
