on the Now York Central Twentieth
Century limited cast bound turned
completely over about a quarter of a I
mile west of SL Johnsvllle today It
slid 300 feet before It stopped Fire

Scanlon attempted to leap when tho
engine loft tho rails but ho was I
caught between tho engine and tender
and crushed to death None of the
coaches left the track though the
trucks of several of them were de
railed Iost of the passengers were
thrown from their borthtf and some
wero Efllghtljyinjuxed There Is a
signal tower about a quarter of a mile
west of the St Johnviile station and
from this the switches and crossovers
are controlled It was necessary for
the operator to shift the train from
track No 1 to track No2 and the
supposition is that the engineer did
not see the signal cautioning him to
slow down In time to bring his train
under full control and when the loco
motive struck the crossover tho pon
derous machine bounded Into the air
turned upon its side and then rolled
upon Its back The hcay coaches In

MEN OF MIDDLE WEST
ARE THE TRUE AMERICANS
Now York Jan 25Mon of tho
middle west are the true Americans
according to Senator Clapp of Minne
sota who was In New York today on
a flying visit from Washington
New England said the senator
hns its interests centered In manu
factures New York in finance Penn
sylvania In coal the far wost in um
ber They are nIl more or less pro
vincial But the middle west Is not
bound by any highly accentuated local
interests and is better qualified to et
a perspective of the countrys needs
That is why tho protest against
undue privilege and unjust protection
Utarted with us We Insurgents in
the Republican party do not rail at
fortune but merely insist that all
shall he equal before the law and that
no advantage shall be given to tho
men with the genius for acquisition

first victory bore in their battle
against prevailing food prices yester
lay when reductions of 3 per cent
to 5 per cent were announced In the
wholesale prices of eggs butter po
tatoes pork products and the better
Grades of dressed beef cuts
Big reductions also were nmdo In
tho value of live hogs cattle and
sheep and In the quotations on wheat
corn oats and provisions on the spec
ulative markets Of chief benefit lo
the housewife was the declines In
Jotter which dropped from 32 cents
u pound wholesale to 31 cents and In

weeTho Elgin butter market recorded a
big slump flutter men who had
been bidding ne high as 38 cents reg
istered bids of 30 cents on received
offerings Tho deals practically du
rlded the price Three reasons were
given in Elgin as the cause of the de
crease
Agitation against the high price of
food stuffs a break in the corner on
butter held by a butter company of
Aurora and the decline in the de
muml since the holidays
In the Chicago wholesale markets
potatoes went down to 36 cents and
50 cents a bushel against an extreme

CAUSES OF HIGH PRICES
I I
Chicago Jan 2floger W Babson I
of Boston in an address before the
Chicago Advertisers association yes
terday declared that prices in lOll
leading commodities have doubled or
tripled since the time of the Chicago
Words Fair
He gave these six reasons as the
causes
Trusts
Tariff
Overproduction of gold
Overspending waste from buying
more than is needed
Whole desertion of the farms for
the city
Great increase in money spent for
I luxuries
The two prime causes Mr Babsen
I declared are overspending and too
I great a taste for luxuries

butter dealers began to scale their

stances the price was six cents lower
than the day previous for the best
I creamery Eggs too while they arf
I tho cold storage brand are beginning
1 to come down In price and as much

lopped off late yesterday
Eat moat but once a day and you
will help to solve tho problem of the

health is the advice of Dr B R Wal
tor director of the department of
health
The remedy mentioned is not the
I only one proposed by Dr Walters He
and Dr J C McNeil superintendent
of the bureau of food inspection are
convinced that the operation of a mu
nicipal abbatolr would reduce mater

New York Jan 25Milk eg R

today Nationwide agitation aided
by potent local influences have
brought about the drop Meat too IR

invoked In the movement to combat

among dealers in foodstuffs was
I sworn In While It Is expected to deal
I first with the alleged milk combine
tho meat question is likely to be put

taken in during the probing
I Milk Is down a cent a quart already
I
on at least two big dealers routes
butter in the best qualities has been
cut five cents a pound and eggs are

Wall Street Had Grown Nervous Over the
Announcement That the President Was to
Start a Radical Antitrust Campaign
Washington Jan 25 President
Taft today made public the following
statement as to his reported crusade
against corporations
No statement was issued either
from the attorney generals office or
the White House Indicating that tho
purpose of the administration with
reference to prosecutions under the
antitrust law Is other than as set
forth In the message of the President
of January 7th 1910 I
Sensational statemonts that there
was to be a new departure and an in
discriminate prosecution of important
industries have no foundations Tho
I purpose of tho administration is ex
actly as already stated In tho Presi
dents message
I The statemont was issued after tho
President had talked with J J 11111
and had received the Information that
I
prices were crumbling In Now York
under tho various reports printed yes
terday and today There was no
statement from the White House ex
cept the foregoing
I
Mr Hill on leaving the White
House said he did not pretend to rep
I resent or speak for the President In
anything He said he was sure that
the President would not attack cor
porations of themselves but only tho
sins of the corporations If the cor
porations wero violating the laws of
the country he supposed they would
bo brought to book In his special
message on interstate commerce and
antitrust laws Mr Taft In connec
tion with a recommendation for a fed
eral Incorporation act said
It Is the duty and the purpose of
the executive to direct an investiga
tion toy tho department of Justice
through the grand jury or otherwise
Into the history organization and tho
purposes of all the industrial compan
ies with respect to which there ia any
reasonable ground for suspicion that
they have been organized for a pur
pose and are conducting buvilnoss on
a plan which is in violation of the anti
trust law
° Thoworkis heavy hut It is not
beyond the purpose of the department
of justice If sufficient funds are fur
nished to carry on the investigations
and to pay the counsel engaged in
the work But such an investigation
and possible prosecution of corpora
tions whose prosperity or destruction
affects the comfort not only of stock
holders but of millions of wage earn
ers employes and associated trades
men must necessarily tend to dis
turb the confidence of tho business
community to dry up the now flow
Ing sources of capital from its places
of hoarding and produce a halt In our
present prosperity that will cause suf
fering and strained circumstances
among tho Innocent many for the
faults of the guilty few
The question I wish In tills mes
I sage to Hiring clearly to the consid
eration aud discussion of congress Is
whether In order to avoid such a pos
t sible business danger something can
I not he done by which tho business
combinations may be offered a means
without great financial disturbance of
changing the character organization
and extent of their business Into ono
undor tho lines of the law under fed
eral supervision securing compliance
with the antitrust statutes I
Mr Hills visit to the White House
It was said later was merely a coin I
cidence Mr Hill said ho had dis
cussed general conditions with the
President and had not gone into the
subject of the prosecution of tho
trusts
Normally conditions aro satisfac
tory In all directions said Mr Hill
hut we dont want a lot of wild fitor
IfR to got abroad to rauso depression
Mr Hill did not want to discuss the
Presidents recommendation as to rail
road legislation saying It was too im
portant a subject to tako up offband
I But we do need the restcure bad
ly he said adding that tho country
I should be allowed full time to recover
I from tho panic of 1907 He thought
I three or four months of rest from agi
