WHERE THE CASH
IS COMING FROM Women Work at Night to Finanoe Roosevelt Campaign. A...JL FACTORY CONDITIONS Nsw York Stata Investigating CommfV tee Pound Pale, Worn Women Work- Ing In Twine Manufacturing Con cern Owned by the International Harveater Company. Awful conditions hare been found by the state factory Investigating com- i mlttee of Npw York In the mills of the Osborn > Twine company, No. 3, at Au burn, N. Y., owned by the Internar tional Harvester company, of which George W. Perkins, chief financial backer of Theodore Roosevelt in his scheme to ruin the Republican party, la a director. “The appearance of the women workers In this plant,” said a member of the committee, “was very dis heartening. They were worn and pale and their ojothes, faces and hands were covered with oil and hemp cloth. Many of these women, so called, are only children In age and they have to lug huge piles of hemp, weighing 160 pounds each, across the floor, the load in some oases being bigger than the women themselves. In the spin ning room, where women are employ ed alone, to the exclusion of men, who would have lo receive higher wapei, the clatter of machinery 1b so fright ful. that a voice below a shriek cannot ba heard. The rooms are dark, though for no necessary cause, and no atr tempt la made to remove the dust, which Is kept In constant motion by the line shaftings despite the require ments of the law. This dust la breathed continuously by the women, many of whom complain of chronio coughs and colds. The dust and dirt are so thick upon the clothes of the girls that at the noon hour—which in many oases consists of but a few minutes—and at the close of the day’a or night's labor, the girls have to sweep each other elean with brooms." It la further at&ted that the custom of working the women all night la permanent, married women being se lected for night work, their hours be lng from sundown until 6:30 o'clock In the morning. Of 400 women em ployed In the mills, 200 work all night. When George W. Perkins w as asked by a New York Times reporter for an explanation of the conditions In an establishment of which he Is one of the directors, he made, In part, the following remarkable reply: “This night work has been rendered neces sary largely because of the govern ment's perfectly unreasonable attitude toward large corporations, which has made it Impossible for managers of large concerns to know whether they were on foot or horseback, whether they could expand their plans to keep up with increasing demands or not.” The late Mark Twain In his bright est moments never uttered anything more grimly humorous than the fore going explanation by George \V. Per kins of why the company of which he la a director Is working women all night under the frightful conditions disclosed by the New York state fao tory Investigating committee. Meantime it ought to be of Interest to millions of Republicans throughout the United States to kno- where the j money comes from to finance Theo- « dore Roosevelt in his campaign of “rule or ruin.” ROOSEVELT WRONG AGAIN Makes Another Statement Which Is Absolutely False. Colonel Roosevelt really has a great many things to his credit, and this makes it nil the more strange that he should Insist upon claiming credit to which he has no shadow of title There is the pure food law for ex ample. It Is notorious that this w.,p one of the measures In which he had but little interest. It is doubtful if ho ever so much as mentioned the sub ject to any member of congress while the bill was pending, and It is entirely certain that It would have passed, even If he had actively opposed It. so nearly unanimous was the sentiment In congress in favor of It. And yet in a recent letter to a man In Kansas Colonel Roosevelt said that “the pure food and drug bill became r law pure ly because of the very active part I took In getting it through congress.” and adding that after gentlemen such as Mr. Wiley had vainly urged the bill he used men like Mr. Garfield, then secretaray of the interior, and got It through. But the truth is that Mr. Garfield was not appointed secretary of the In terior until six months after the bill was passed!

Record: President Taft never vetoed a gen eral pension bill. The fellows who are circulating reports to the contrary are either Ignorant or desire to wilfully und maliciously misrepresent. It pays to tell the truth In politics, as well as in business. Both Mistreated by Roosevelt. From the Kansas City Journal: Taft and La Follette may not have any very high admiration for each other, but there Is one bond of sym pathy between them. They were both I outrageously mistreated by the same I man. I Expect Taft’s Election. From the Kansas City (Mo.) Jour nal: There appears to the conservative Republican no good reason why the campaign of 1912 should not result In the re-election of William H. Taft A Pretext.
