he will make a president of whom we

a irfatly collie II from mllodest circuin
statnces to thli governtor'ship of a great
state and bids fair to reach the high

people. Although a man of the people,
he has io radical ideas as to the
riih'ts or privileges of any specialI

The failure of A. Mitchell Palmer
to win the Democratic nomination for
president is laid by many of his sup
porters to his activities In prosecut
ing the profiteers. They say that he
has made en'?nies among "big busi
ness" not only it the RepubUcan
party but within the Democratic party
itself. Criticism of Mr. Palmer is not
confined alone to Riepublicans or "big
business" but to Democrats and the
small fry as Well. Th'e conplaint
agairut '\r. -Palmer is bot against his
accomplishmnts but his failures. .He
has created a great deal of-noise, and
stirred u11) mIuch opposition to legiti
mate busi's.S but he has not made
good in most of his campaigns and has
utterly failed -in others, Take the case
of the packers, to which .t. Palmer
as wvell as The Advertiser seems to
be overly interested in. If Mr. Palmer
had attempted to prove that the pack
ers are getting more Hian their share
qi this world's goods lid had sought
to make a more equal distribution of
these profits, he might rightly have
claimed a share of pulplic praise. Your
and our' share of the distribution
would have been very sinall. bt that
is beside th le oint. .\Mr. 1P'a )ler, how
ever. sought. to lav at tie packer's
doors the clartre ? of rofitoetina an
the high cost f I:fing. charges he has
not made goowl !in spihe of all the ma
chi nery of the govetnmetit which ie
had at his back. The most that his
investigators have been able to prove
is that the packers' proilts now are
about $58,000,000 Ja year, a hutge smi
to be sure but if divided among the
1141.100,000 people of the country does
uot amontit to so mutch after all. A
loss of 5o cents a year petr person to
the packers certainly has no bearing
oni the high cost of living. The ir
sistence of Mr. Pa nlmer and his inves
tigators in bringing such ttnwarranted
chtar-ges against legitimate business
lost him the confidence of a large part
of the public and took away from him
