The capital invested in American

amounted to $12.2S6.2G5,670, according
to recent figures of the census bu

years of 41 per cent. The gain in the
products of manufacture was 30 per
cent, the 1904 aggregate being $14,sr2,-147.087.

is that with all our boasting the human

Secretary of Agriculture Wilson
does not altogether share in the views
of J. J. Hill as to the inability of fa
ture generations to cope with the ex
haustion of the coal and iron ore, and
the decreased productivity of the soil.
He thinks the farmers will make good
the fuel supply. Alcohol will supplant
coal. There will be decreased use for
iron for building purposes because of
the substitution of slag, stone and on
crete. Secretary Wilson is nothing if
them for the benefit of our readers:
"Eat as little as possible. The aver
age man rats , too much. Instead of
nourishing his body he overtaxes in
compelling his stomach to digest more
food than it has capacity for.

strength was shown when he deliver
ed four addresses on his recent trip
from Waston to Frome. It was esti
mated that he spoke 25,000 words.
The Steel Trust.
Andrew Carnegie, at the opening of
the Roosevelt campaign in 1904. in a
burst of partisan philanthropy, said he
would "give one million dollars to the
republican campaign fund to elect Mr.
Roosevelt. Did his liberal donation
have the effect of enervating the judi
cial arm of the government? It does
look so. for there has been no attempt
to prosecute the steel trust and it must
be remembered that Mr. Carnegie owns
$300.00,000 of the steel trust bonds.
As Mr. Roosevelt has discovered that
the "question of revising the tariff
stands wholly apart from the question
of dealing with the so-called trusts
that is, with the control of monopolies
and with the supervision of great
wealth in business, especially in cor
IKjrate form. Is it possible that Prs
ident Roosevelt does not know, or for
partisan iuroses d'-nies, that such
"so-called trusts" as the steel trust, the
sugar trust and most manufacturing
combinations that are complete or par
tial monopolies, have been created and
could not exist without tariff protec
tion against foreign competition.
The protective tariff was the mother
of those trusts and is still nursing those
