Two features that appeal strongly to women shoppers. The fact
that these fabrics are "aunrfast" and also that they can be boiled

Preliminary Report Submitted
to President.
MANY DETAILS ARE GIVEN
Corporation's Ten Per Cent Profit
Called Cause for Concern.
IS AHEAD OF OTHER BODIES
Commissioner Smith Does Not At
tempt to Suggest Remedies for
Existing Conditions.
The preliminary report of the commis
sioner of corporations on the cost of pro
duction in the steel industry lias been
presented to the President. In the re
port. which covers 144 pages and contains
forty tables of figures. detailed informa
tion is given In regard to the cost of
producing steel, from the iron ore to the
finished billets or rails, and including
cost of mining coal and producing coke.
In his letter of submittal Herbert Knox
Smith, commissioner of corporations,
says:
"The cost of steel making Is a basic
industrial fact, which bears on larifT
legislation, prices and profits in a great
industry, and the concentrated control
of a great natural resource.
"Tho bureau Jias used the actual rec
ords of companies covering, roughly, two
thirds of the'country's production of iron
and steel for the years I'.'.rj to 1'.*??i.
These data arc most complete. More
limited tigures for 1002 to 1910 make it
clear that these live-year figures substan
tially represent present conditions also."
Book Costs Discussed.
The report goes into a minute discus
sion of "book costs" and "intercompany
profits,'1 whereby one subsidiary company
of a combination operating blast fur
naces pays to another subsidiary which
mines ore a price for the ore that in
cludes a profit to the ore company. The
furnace company enters this price on its
books as a part of its costs. These costs
are "book costs" and Include consider
able profits really received by the same
interests.
These intermediate profits are very im
portant. For example, the average "book
cost" of Bessemer pig Iron over the live
year period was $13.89 per ton. "Trans
fer" profits were $1.79, leaving a net cost
of *12.10.
The report lays stress on the cumu
lative importance of the cost of Iron ore.
High intermediate profits?"book costs" of
the mills?are carried on into the cost of
the finished product, adding considerable
sums to the last cost of steel. For in
stance: Starting with the chief raw ma
terials, ore and coke, the "boon cost" of
ore for the five-year period was $2.64.
The only "transfer" profit in the cost of
ore itself was an intercompany royalty of
$0.02 per ton, leaving a net average of ore
of $2,621
Cost of Connellsville Coke.
For Connellsville coke, the principal
kind used, the cost was $1.43 <nct ton),
with no intermediate profits.
Passing to the next step, Bessemer pig
iron, intermediate profits in ore and in
coke, as they go into pig iron, are large.
Furthermore, these costs, profits and
freights to the furnace are multiplied
because it takes about 1.8 tons of Bes
semer ore and over one net ton of coke
for one ton of pig iron. The average
book cost of the ore for one ton of pig
iron was $7.36; coke, $3.81, and limestone,
43 cents. The so-called "cost above ma
terials," necessary for converting that ore
into pig iron, was: Labor, 73 cents;
other operating cost, 80 cents, and de
preciation and general expense, 76 cents.
The total makes a book cost of pig iron
of $13.89. Taking out now the transfer
profit. $1.79, there is left a net cost of
$12.10.
Bessemer Bail Ingots. <
Advancing to Bessemer rail ingots,
there appears a book cost of $17.59. All
?the preceding intermediate profits, how
ever, have been carried forward in the
book cost of the raw material, pig iron.
Thus, the total "transfer" profits for in
gots were $1.84, leaving a net Ingot cost
tm $13.75.
For heavy Bessemer rails finally the
book cost was $21.27. This is based on
the book cost of ingots. The final trans
fer profits were $2.47. Deducting these
leaves $18.S0 as the revised cost. About
one-third of this revised cost was for
labor In all stages of production, as ap
pearing directly in the cost sheets.
The report shows that, as the price of
Bessemer steel rails has been fixed for
over ten years at about $28 per ton. the
actual profits of the steel rail manu
facturers is approximately $10 per ton.
The total mining and manufacturing in
vestment, excluding transportation prop
erties. is from $55 to $80 per ton, and the
report says that on this investment the
actual profit?$9.20 in exact figures?rep
resents a profit of 11 to 17 per cent.
Record of Corporation.
The bureau received from the Unite 1
Stated Steel Corporation its book costs of
various products, also the record kept by
the conMJration of Its own intermediate
profits on ore, etc. These records show
that |he corporation's intermediate
profits are larger, and its net costs lower,
than those of any other steel manu
facturing concern reporting. The ccm
missioner's comment on this point is:
"This fact, and its unique character and
dominating position, make the costs of
this corporation a matter of public im
portance." , ?
In the matter of heavy Bessemer steel
rails, where other producers figure a
book lost of say $21..">0. and a revised
cost of about $18 per ton, the steel cor
poration figures the same book cost, but
its revised cost is only about $16.67 per
ton- ,
That the steel corporation is earning
10 iper cent on its entire ore holding, both
developed and undeveloped. Is pointed out
in the report as cause for concern; not
that 10 per cent is an unreasonable return
on a developed and producing property,
but that the corporation is able out of
its profits to show 10 per cent earnings
on ore bodies which are not being worked,
but are kept Idle and unproductive, is
considered dangerous.
Matter of Transportation.
The report also takes notice of trans
portation lines?railways, steamship lines,
etc., owned by corporations and concerns
engaged in steel production, stating that
In the case of the steel corporation the
ore rates on its two roads have been ex
cessive.
The report says:
"In so far as they exceed a reasonable
return, they not only benefit the cor
poration by a high profit on the ore of
other shippers. but correspondingly
handicap the "business of such competi
tors, who must ship over these roads.
These rates were reduced in November,
1011. Such control of public agencies of
transportation by an industrial corpora
tion carries with it just such possibili
ties of abuse, and raises the question
whether the public interest In this in
dustry does not require a segregation of
the ore railroads of" the steel corpora
tion."
The report does not go Into the matter
of suggesting remedies for existing con
ditions, but simply points these condi
tions out and allows conclusions to be
drawn from the very comprehensive
showings, tooth in text and in figures.
AGREES WITH ME. STANLEY.
Segregation of Steel Corporation and
Railroad Snbsidaries Favored.
The suggestion niado by tho commis
sioner of corporations, Herbert Knox
Smith, in his report on tho United States
Steel Coppolation that the corporation and
JU-railroad j?ufcfjdiarica iilioulii so scsro^
sated, coincides with the view* of Chair
man Stanley and other members of the
"House ?teel trust investigating committee.
The committee for many months has
been conducting a thorough investigation
into the steel corporation's railroad hold
ings and the . method of operating ita
transportation facilities.- An exposition of
its discoveries is to be made within a fen
weeks.
Scores of.witnesses still are to be sum
moned. many of them independent ship
I?crs and manufacturers, to show that bv
controlling ore transportation facilities
from the great lakes to Pittsburgh and
in the Birmingham district, the steel cor
poration holds tremendous advantage over
competitors.
The commissioner of corporation's re
port that the steel corporation makes ex
cessive profits on its ore holdings is an
other feature that the House committee
Is planning to delve into thoroughly be
fore the inquiry is concluded.
President Farrell of the steel corpora
tion continued his testimony before the
committee today.
INS AWN RACE,
BUT LOSES HIS LIFE
kithkrford page.
LOS ANGELES, Cal., January 'SI.?
Rutherford Page, the young aviator, who
was killed by a fall of 150 feet yester
day, at the third international aviation
meet here, made good his declaration
that he would beat Lincoln Beachy, ac
cording to official announcement today.
The time in the five-mile handicap
event showed that Page won in 6 min
utes, :>7 12-5 seconds; Hoffman, second,
6.53: Beachy, third, ti.55.
Page was endeavoring to "turn on a
pivot." when the swell of air over the
hangar caught his planes. He made an
efTort to regain his balance, but evidently
fearing the aeroplane was beyond con
trol, gave up, and when about rfixty feet
in the air jumped clear of the machine,
and fell flat upon the plowed ground. Ac
cording to the doctors he was crushed to
death.
First Flight as Licensed Aviator.
Page was flying for the first time as a
licensed aviator, having received his li
cense Saturday. In the first heat of the
?five-mile handicap, in which he and Lin
coln Beachy, the Curtiss veteran, were
the contestants, Page thrilled the crowd
by his sensational maneuvers. All the
dips and sharp turns made by Beachev
were duplicated by Page, who was even
more daring.
The more experienced aviators shook
their heads when they witnessed Page's
apparently foolhardy evolutions, and
when he descended Glenn Curtiss cau
tioned him against attempting to perform
such feats.
Would Beat or Break Fool Neck.
Page laughed, and assured Curtisg that
he was "all to the good." During the
afternoon the young New Yorker had
told those about the hangars that he
would beat Beachey, "or break my fool
neck."
Page was graduated from Yale last
year and was a member of the Yale Club
of New York. About six weeks ago he
Joined the Curtiss camp at San Diego,
where he received his first instructions
in flying.
Glenn H. Curtiss declared Page's death
was due to lack of experience and his
extreme daring.

Leader of Conservation Movement
Introduces Progressive Candidate
for Presidential Nomination.
NEW YOKK, January 23.?Senator Rob
ert Marion I^a Follette of Wisconsin marie
his bow last night to Now York as the
presidential candidate. The vast audito
riuin of <*arnf(jie llall was unable to hold
the mass of people who caine to listen
to him. ;'nd when he learned that a
large number of people had to be refused
admittance he left the hall and addressed
the Fix or seven hundred who were
gathered in Fifty-seventh street, using
the chauffeur's seat of an automobile
as ids rostrum.
The overflow meeing caused some de
lay, and it wa.-s after U o'vlot k w lien
Senator Ixl Follette was introduced from
tlie platform of Carnegie llall bv tJifTord
Pinchot. Me was received with hearty
applause and his long siieeoh was fre
quently interrupted by applause and
cries of approval.
Explaining the platform of the progress
ives and declaring it the.one with which
he was in fullest accord. Senator La
Follette paid that he was for the retail
extended to the judiciary and Tor woman
sufTrage. lie had deacril?ed 'he recall
as applied to all elected officials, and had
paused wlien a voice in the auditorium
rang out: "How about judges?"
Reason Enough for Becall.
"I was just waiting for you to say
that," was the scnataor's answer. "I am
in favor of extending the recall to the
judiciary. 1 don't defy the bench, and
when a court forgets that its function is
to administer laws as written by the leg
islative tl?nartment and goes into legis
lating. there's enough reason to apply the
recall.
"I am not going to say anything here
and veil it. I mean the Supreme Court
of the United States, which undertook to
put words Into the Sherman act which the
legislators who passed it never intended
to have there.
"I am for a restricted and safeguarded
recall of the judiciary. You deny to the
people of this country this right, and you
confirm their suspicions against the judi
[ ciary."
For the occasion of his first appear
ance before a New York audience Mr. La
Follette said he had been admonished
that the audience would be gathered for
the most part from curiosity, and when a
man called out that it meant business the
senator said he meant business, too. and
that he had come to talk about the coun
try.
Need for Progressive Measures.
Starting from the premise that he was
regarded as a very dangerous man and
that his own testimony might be ques
tioned, he quoted various authorities to
show the decline of true democracy in
this country and the need for the re
medial measures advocated by the pro
gressives. He first quoted from De
Tocqueville's work, in which the writer
said seventy years ago that he had never
found a man in the United States using
wealth to corrupt his fellow-men.
He then turned to Bryce's "American
Commonwealth," published fifty years
later, in which the great corporations
were described as being everywhere the
bane of state politics as well as actively
engaged in lobbying at Washington. Jus
tice Brewer and Justice Brown, both of
the Supreme Court, were quoted by Sen
ator La Follette as having Pointed out
In public speeches in 1904 and l.*'o the
corrupting influence of corporations upon
legislative bodies.
The senator said he would not be
afraid of the corruptive influence of the
wealth of the whole country if it were
not insidious, but would march in the
open with its banner flying.
"We have permitted this thing to come
into this generation of ours, and are we
going to leave it to the coming genera

Pincliot on Conservation.
Clifford I'inchut. before introducing S-n
ator La Follette. spok" about the'eon ?r
i vation movement ainl the progressive
movement, which he said were tiie two
great parallel movements which todav
wrre in possession of the public mlud.
Kach of them, he said, wax so simple, -o
1 wmnd and so certain tu prevail that It
was only natural to find them huth tak
ing their rise from tiie same great princi
ple. that of making the best use of what
we have for the general welfare. uo*v and
hereafter.
Mr. I'inchot spoke about tin* waste of
natural resource*, the flagrant wis-t- in
the relation between capital and l.'?lM?r
I and the waste in politic*, which, lie ^.iid.
was worst of all. for it perpetuated a I*
otiier wastes by blocking the road to l?et
ter things, lie continued:
"The existence ef the boas system, the
scandalous allianie between tlie bosses
and tiie special interests for purposes of
prolit, the repudiation of their own po
litical integrity by the rubber stamp vot
ers, who follow corrupt leaders In blind
obedience, the exaltation of party above
principle?all thesn make for waste and
loss of political power and popular rights,
and inevitably bring with them the Ion;:
train of evils in government with which
this country is but too familiar."
Launches La Follette Boom.
Mr.. Pinchot then described the carter
of Senator La Fo'lette and launched the
presidential boom by saying:
"I had come to believe deeply In tIn
progressive movement. So. long before
me. had the man I am describing. Our
common Interest drew us together.
"At that time the most *e hoped to
accomplish was to prevent the nomina
tion of a reactionary. We all believed
that the man who made the fight might
win the fight for the movement, but tii.it
he could not win the nomination for him
self. At that time it was clear to us nil
that the man who went into this conflict
as leader would have lees chance for the
nomination than he would if he kept out
I of it. I know of my own knowledge that
when the man of whom I speak allowed
his name to be used as a candidate he
did not expect to win the nomination,
and that is one reason why I know that
he is fighting for a cause and a principle
and not for a man. (
"That was the condition of affairs some
months ago. Now we know that the
man who, for the sake of principle, wa?
willing to volunteer in a forlorn hope ha*
a good chance to capture the fortress."

Where the Nerves Cry
Look to the
The cry may be in some one of many ways?Trembling, Sleepy in the day time (conies from
stomach), Headache, Dyspepsia, Bowel Trouble, Heart Palpitation, and even Pains in various parts
of the body originate in a disordered nervous system. Such a condition of the nerves may be pro
duced from various causes. It is very often brought on by Coffee.
If you don't heed the cry ( Nature's hint) you may be sure
the trouble will get worse, and not better, until you cither quit
the cause, or you develop fixed organic disease that may carry
you down.
