Not Quito True.
In its issuo for September 13, the
Courier contained the following:
"As evidence of the linancial injury
they have done to farmers, the ashing
ton correspondent of the Baltimore Sun,
a McKinley paper in lS'JO, presents the
"It requires 50 yer cent more wheat to
buy a stove than it did in 1S1.
"It requires "0 bushels more corn to
buv a wagon than in ISM).
"It requires 1(A) per cent more corn or
wheat to buy a copper kettle than in
"It requires twice as much corn to buy
a coil of rope as in ISM).
"It requires AO per cent more grain to
buy a plow than in 1SX.
"It requires 75 per cent more grain to
buy a hoe, rake or shovel than in ISMj.
"A set of common wheels that cost 87
in ISM) now cost 812.
"The price of cultivators and other
farm' implements has gone up propor
"Galvanized barbed wire costs from 81
to 84.50 per hundred more than in 18115
"It requires 40 per cent more corn or
cotton to buy a pound of sugar than in
"You have to pay 40 per cent moro for
glass than in ISKj.
"Freight rates have climbed back to
the exorbitant Ugures of a few venrs
"The price of oil, coal, lumber, tools
and hardware havo gone up from 40 to
100 per cent.
"And all these things have been done
by trusts.
"A trust robs you walking or sleeping
eating or drinking, working or resting
living or dying, and the collin trust ets
you in the end."
Theso statements are interesting if true
but they certainly are not true so far as
this part of the country i3 concerned. A
comparison of Chicago prices for agricul
tural products September 1, 1S00, with
those of 1900, shows wheat at the latter
date to be 25 per cent higher, corn 100 per
cent higher, oats 38 per cent higher, and
hay 37 per cent higher. On the other
hand, as shown by tho prico lists ob
tamed in one of our local hardwaro
stores, stoves at wholesale are 20 pe
cent higher, wagons 10 per cent higher
copper kettles 10 per cent higher, rope
eight per cent higher, plows five percent
higher, barbed wire one cent per pound
higher, and glass is no higher.
As a matter of fact it takes less wheat
to buy a plow than it did four years ago
and only a little moro than half as much
'corn to buy a wagon, copper kettle, coi
of rope or plow as then. Lumber, tools
and hardware have gone up in prico, but
not from 40 to 100 per cent; in fact, tho
average per cent of riseSn price of these
articles is not nearly as great as that of
hogs, cattle, sheep and wool.
But what is the matter w ith tho Cour
ier any way? In 1S&J it was advocating
tho free coinago of silver at 10 to 1 be
cause prices were too low, and free
silver would give them a boost. Now it
complains of high prices and is cham
pioning tho somo measure again this
As far as the oil and coal trusts are
concerned, it must not bo forgotten that
they were doing business when Mr.
Bryan was in congress, and wo do not
recall any bill that "peerless leader" in
troduced for tho purioso of restraining
Neither must it bo forgotten that in
the last session of tho present congress
An interesting poster used in President Andrew Jackson's second cam
paign has come to light. It was presented to Comptroller Dawes by Col.
E. C. Kreider, postmaster at Jacksonville, 111. It is interesting because it
shows to what ends the anti-imperialists of that day went to defeat Presi
dent Jackson for re-election. The ioster represents President Jackson in
the robes of a king, with a crown upon his head, a scepter in one hand, a
Bcroll with tho word "veto" 'upon it in the other. President Jackson is
standing at the foot of a throne and under his feet is a copy of the consti
tution which has been torn to shreds, together with a copy of tho bank
charter and a volume containing tho laws affecting tho judiciary. Above
the picture are the words, "Born to command." On the right hami side
tho iuscriptiou, "Of veto memory," and on the left, "Had I wn consult
ed." Beneath the picture is inscribed "King Andrew the first, born to
command." Tho remainder of tho iostei is devoted to an attack upon
President Jackson.
In largo letters beneath this wero the words, "Shall he reign over us or
shall the people rule?"
it was democratic votes that defeated tho
resolution submitting a constitutional
amendment that, if adopted, would havo
given congress tho iiwer to deal effec
tually with the trust problem.
The following words wero written and
published bv Theodoro Roosevelt in IMS:
"When drunk on tho villainous whiskey
of tho frontier towns, tho cowboys are
much better fellows and pleasanter com
panions than tho small farmers or agri
cultural laborers: nor are the mechanics
of a great city to bo mentioned in tho
same breath." How do the farmers and
mechanics of Van Buren county like
this estimate of them held by the man
thev are invited to mako vice-president?
Paw Paw Courier.
Will the Courier bo kind enough to tell ,
where and when such a statement as that
recorded abovo was published by Theo
doro Roosevelt? The True Northerner
declares that no such sentiment was ever
written or published by Theodoro Roose
velt, and challenges tho Courier to dis
prove our assertion. Did the Courier
wilfully misrepresent tho words of Col.
Roosevelt, or did it publish as a fact
something it didn't know anything
about? It is up to tho Courier to cite
its authority and produce the words, or
else stand convicted before its readers of
deliberate falsehood or else crass ignor
anco concerning what it declared as
"England is the great creditor nation,
and the gold standard is for her benefit,"
was the cry of thosilveritesin '!K3. Things
aro changing. Under the republican
policies of protection and sound money,
tho United States is assuming an impor
tant place among the loaners to tho na
tions, and tho indications are that we
are to become tho world's bankers, as we
have been the world's granary and are
now one of the world's great factories.
The German government hrn just placed
a 820,000,01)0 loan in New York. Follow

tiated recently in tho United States, in
theso prosperous McKinley times:

j But they say weare drifting in-
j to militarism, and that tho mailed
hand of the soldier is upon tho
! shoulder of tho free man. and that
fj we are liable to be dominated by fj
1 1 military force. Is this true? In j I
j j Franco there are 11 soldiers to '
f i every 1,000 of population; in Great
: 1
Britain there aro G 7-10 soldiers to
every l,uw. lho other principal
governments range between those M
two figures.
In the United States t i
there is 80-100 part of an American 1
soldier to every 1 .000 of population, t !
Now if there aro any 1,000 men in

I i of the 8G-100 part of an American
soldier it is my judgment that they
do not live in tho stato of Michi-
gan.-Congressman Henry C.Smith, i
Terence V. Powderly, formerly grand
master wurkman(of theKnightsof Labor,
says: "There wero never so many men
enployed in tho history of tho United
estates as there aro to-uay never so
many receiving wages." Ho is also
authority for tho statement that the rail
roads are employing 31,000 more men
than they did last year, and 105,000 more
than two years ago. Tho prosperity is
suo is a vital ono to tho American labor
ing man. Tho full dinner pail is in evi
denco all over tho country; it wasn't
four years ago in democratic times.

President McKinley's Letter of
Vk believo tho Courier has made no
editorial comment on tho starting up of
tho Michigan-Peninsular car plant and
tho Deering harvester works with 3,000
hands each, or tho resumption of work
at important steel mills, after temporary
shut-downs. Tho full dinner pail is very
much in evidenco.
