M-U Maria Ere HeoMdjr Co Cbicaso HUGE PROFITS III U.S. Startling Facts Revealed by Treasury Department. WORST IS IN FOODSTUFFS Profiteering by Producers of Common Necessities, Bad Enough In 1916, Was Enormously Increased In 1917 In Most Instances. Washington, Aug. 17. Amazing prof Its In almost every branch of Ameri can Industry were brought to light when the treasury department com pleted Its long-awaited report on prof iteering. The report -covers S1.5Q0 corpora tions, the names of which are with held. It was prepared In response Jo the Borah resolution, adopted by the senate after President' Wilson, In his revenue address to congress on May 27, declared that there was "abundant fuel for the light" In the treasury de partment with regard to profiteering. The treasury department takes the position that It would be a violation of existing law to make public the names1 of corporations and. their earn ings. The senate resolution Is not suf ficient to suspend the law ; it would require a Joint resolution, the treasury department holds: . The most extraordinary, profiteering revealed by the report was In food stuffs. Producers-of 'nearly, all the common necessities of life were shown to have -made enormously Increased profits in 1917 over 1916, although their earnings In- 1916 Were In numerous cases far above the 100 per cent mark. Meat packers' profits we're shown to have Increased substantially. One large packer made $19,000,000 more In 1917 than In 1910. In the Iron and steel Industry sensa tional profits were disclosed. In coal and oil profits mounted to unparalleled figures. ' Public utilities of virtually every character also came In for a lib eral share of the Increased prosperity. Large Profits of Dairies. Among the dairy concerns large In creases of profits were shown. One company with $000,000 capital made $106,000 in 1917, ogalnst $25,000 the year before. The small dairymen made the largest percentages of In creased profits. One little concern with a capital of $2,400 made $11,059, as compared with $4,000 for 1910. Fruit and vegetable growing Indus try's profits Increased considerably over those for 1916, although they were fairly large for that year. One concern's profits were 240 per cent more for 1917 than for 1916. Concerns with small capital showed the largest Increases. - . Wheat, corn and barley growing was not so profitable, according to the re turns. One concern with $425,000 cap ital lost money. Stock-breeding showed substantially Increased profit In nearly all the con cerns listed.' The Industry also showed large profits for the previous year. One concern's profits were 255 per cent more in 1917 than in 1916. A large number of industries listed as "miscellaneous agricultural Indus tries" showed some strikingly large profits, beginning In 1910 and Increas ing rapidly in 1017. Food Men Gain Riches. Of 216 concerns listed under the cup tlon "Rread and other baking prod ucts," profiteering of an amazing char acter was shown. For example, one company capitalized at $40,000 In creased Its profits from $50,000 In 1910 to $107,000 In 1017. Few of them showed Increases of less than 20 per cent on their capital stock. In the canning industry one com pany which earned 377 per cent in 1910 earned 1,047 per cent In 1917. Another, capitalized at $93,000. made $247,000 in 1817, against $00,000 in 1918. A $50,000 concern which mnde $25,000 In 1016 made $142,000 in 1917. The manufacture of syrups, molas ses and glucose netted much Increased profit. One company with $350,000 capital earned $303,000 in 1917 against $176,000 in 1916. Ice cream was an especially big money maker. Of more than 500 flour, feed and grist mills listed only a few failed to show largely Increased profits. One $2,500,000 concern made $752,000 In 1916 and $1,200,000 In 1917. There was a general upward rise In most packing companies' profits. The Inrgest concern listed had a capital of $100,000,000. upon which It earned $49. 000.000 In 1917, ogalnst $30,000,000 In 1016. Startling Profits In Leather. Leather manufacturers. Including the dealers In hides, and makers of boots and shoes and trunks and valises, made profits In 1016 and 1917 that are startling. One shoe manufacturing concern, with $1,000,000 capital, made 313 per cent In 1916, but no excess in 1917. Scores of boot and shoe manufae taring concerns, whose capital was from $100,000 to $1,000,000, made all the way from 20 to more than 1,000 per cent In 1016. The profits of the brewers ranged from 25 to 175 per cent In 1916, and their excess profits In 1017 were from 5 to CO per cent, most of the large breweries making an average profit of 42 to 50 per cent In 1910, and an ex cess profit of 10 per cent In 1917. The distillers of whiskies and spir its made profits In 1016 that ranged from 9 to 823 per cent, while their ex INDUSTRIES cess profits last year were frotu 12 to 400 per cent.

The large com panies all made profits in 1916 ranging from 25 to 150 per cent. In 1917 all of the large bituminous operators, the report shows, made un usual profits. One mine made 1,626 per cent on its capital in 1916 and 4,337 per cent In 1917. Another mnde 1,872 per cent In 1910 and 5.9S3 per cent In 1917. Profits of the mldcontlnent bitumi nous operators were smaller, averag ing 50 per cent. The big oil producing companies of Illinois, Indiana, New York, Pennsyl vania, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, and West Virginia mode from 28 to 390 per cent In 1916 ond enormous excess profits In 1917. The Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas oil companies showed similar profits for both years. All of, the garment manufacturers made gigantic profits In 1910, those for the larger companies ranging from 25 to-75 per cent that year. They showed excess profits in 1917 of from 5 to 55 per cent. Small dealers In flour and grain, with, capital stock of from $1,000 to $S,000, made excess profits that ruugeil as high os 519 -per cent. The report also shows that the small dealers fn furniture and other house hold goods made enormous profits Inst yir, with excess profits us high us 350 per cent. . Retail dealers in tobacco made enor mous profits off ,the smokers of the country, the '-highest being 3,170 per cent, and the average approximately 80 per cent In 1910. These profits were doubled during 1917. Auto Builders Wax Fat ;" Most of the automobile companies hit high marks iu earnings iu llUli, but they went still higher in 1917. The iurgest listed, however, did not show any extraordinary lncreuse In profits over those of 1U10. One compuuy with $31,000,000 cupilal In 1910 earned $17, 000,000, then boosted Its capital stock to $90,000,000 and then earned $23, 000,000. A $19,000,000 concern which' earned $4,008,000 in 1910 made $5,258, 000 In 1017. ' A $10,000,000 company made $4,713,000 In 1917, against $4, 109,000 In 1910. A tin plate mill with $49,000,000 cap Ital made $54,000,000 net profit lu 1017, against $19,000,000 In 1010, or an in crease of 72 per cent on its cupltul stock. ' Transportation, public utilities, and light and power companies, with very few exceptions, fared exceedingly well during 1910 and 1917. Their profits In 1916 generally ranged from 6 to 80 per cent on their capital stock, while they nearly all made excess profits In 1917 of from 3 to 35 per cent. Profits of the large public utilities companies in 1916 and 1917 ranged from 11 to 25 per cent.

Including department stores, showed profits for 1917 In ex cess of those over 191C, as high as 191.43 per cent on the capital stock. The concerns making the enormous profits, however, were the smaller firms. Retairgrocersand provision brokers made their enormous "war profits" In 1916, the report shows. The gro cers made only a small profit in 1917 In excess of their 1916 profits. Of the 1.633 concerns listed In the report, however, only a dozen show profits of less than 20 per cent on their capltnl stock In 1910, the year before the Unit ed States entered the war, and the profits of some concerns that year were as high as 1,813 per cent. Most of the grocers, both large and small concerns, the report shows, made av erage profits In 1916 of from 50 to 200 per cent London Police Quick to Act The smartness of the London police Is commented upon In the description of an attempted suicide from Water loo bridge. "The Bridge of Sighs." A man Jumped on the parapet, leaped In to the air, made a couple of loops and splashed Into the Thames. Inside of a mlnnte the police had picked him up with a motorboat and dispatched an officer to recover his hat and stick from the bridge. He was duly charged next morning and remanded for on Inquiry as to his sanity. Worth the Money. Corporal Frank Brunson of Omaha, Neb., a member of the 24th balloon company stationed at Camp Morrison. Va., 1,000 miles away, wanted to see bis new daughter who had Just ar rived. Leave was granted but these were the Instructions he had to follow on the way home: "Wire headquarters at every stop."

ORIGIN OF NAMES OF HORSES Dexter Christened for Friend of Own er; Maud S. for Daughter of Owner; Cresceut for Hippodrome Driver. Every race horse Is required to have a name, and when a champion appears many on inquiry Is made In regard to the new performer and especially his name. Starting with Flora Temple, the first 2 :20 performer, says a writer, the records show that she won her first race under the stable name of Flora, but no one bas ever explained why. Temple was adcv1 later. George Alley named Dexter for hie friend Dexter Bradford. The name of this horse was known to more people than any one that ever lived. Many a man who is now gray-headed can re call when as a Jad his hobby horse was called 'Dexter, while the sled which he was given at Christmas had Dexter's name or a picture of him stamped on it. Also at the present time nearly every printing office in the country has in stock a few electros of Dexter to Insert In advertisements. The orlglnnl was a print with Murphy In the saddle, the rider being removed when the wood cut was mnde. The Dexter print was also used by manu facturers of weather-vanes for barns and race track buildings all over the country. . Goldsmith Maid trotted her first races In 1866 as the Goldsmith Marc. She was then owned by Alden Gold smith. When he started out in 1867 he changed the word "Mare" to "Maid." R. B. Conklln, the breeder of Karus, declared that the colt -would be a champion, so be selected the Lat in word' "rarus," meaning "rare," to designate him from the common herd. He made good. In 1875 St. Jutlen was nnmed for a brand of wine. Sargent, who was training the gelding, asked for a riume to be used in entering him at Poughkeepsle. On the -same day an agent from a wine house left a sam ple bottle on Mr. Galway's desk In bis New York store. He noticed the name St Jullen on the label and told Sargent to pass It along to the horse, which General Grant saw reduce the world's record at Oakland. Cal., in 1879, when returning fiom his trip around the world. 1 Maud S. was named after Maud Stone, the daughter of her Cincinnati owner. Sunol carried the name of a town In California, while Nancy Hanks was given the name of Lincoln's moth er. Alix was named for the princess who married the recently deposed czar of Russia. The Abbott brought In a new lln of names with "the" at tached, the Village Farm producing a number of them. Cresceus was named after a cele brated driver in the Roman hippo drome. Lou Dillon combines the names of her dam and sire, and Uhlan carries a name affixed to light cavalry of Tartar origin' and which was first Introduced Into European armies In Poland. How the Red Triangle Began. While the war Is not yet over, the American Y. M. C. A. and brother or ganizations among the allies have -already won praise from the highest military commanders for their work In maintaining the spirit of the armies of democracy. . This great organization, says De troit News, originated In an Invitation extended by George Willlums, a Lon don dry goods merchant, to his young men employees to meet In an upper room of bis stc re for a period of Bible study and praer. This was in 1844. The meetings were so successful that larger dnd bet ter quarters vere secured and other young men we."e Invited to Join. Sim ilar associations were formed In oth er English cit es. In 1851 the move ment reached America, thut year wit nessing the formation of the Y. M. C. A. branches in Montreal and Bos ton. In 1854 the first International con ference met la Paris, with delegates present from America, Canada, Eng land and several countries of conti nental Europe. There are now 10,000 branches In the world, of which 2,192 are In North America. The interna tional headquarters of the Y. M. C. A. are at Geneva, Switzerland. "We Kings." "We kings must tand together." So wrote Emperor Charles to King Ferd inand of Roumanla Inst winter. Evi dently bis reasoning was found cogent by King Ferdinand and perhaps It would be bard to blame blra, observes Boston Transcript All that a man jinth will be give for his life. Em peror Charles bad It In his power to save the "traitor Hohenzollern" that Is to say, the Roumanian representa tive of the elder and honorable branch of the Hohenzollern family from the wrath of the Hohenzollern of Berlin. And at all events King Ferdinand, to save his crown, perhaps his head, ac ceded to the German-Austrian terms, though his heroic queen thns far scorns the disgrace. "We kings must stand together." Also the democracies must stand together. More and more the warfare of the central empires takes on the character of a new "holy alliance" of tyrants, in whose willing service none but slaves la found. As Usual. An unhappy divorce scandal was be ing discussed in the presence of an English official. "Poor Smith !" a banker sighed. "To fall at the age of sixty-nine I He'd climbed to the very top of the moral ladder, too.
