Assured1 v it is no sin for a man
to change nia mind. The more fact
that a n au has altered his opinions
on important matters is no sign of
depravity, and it does not necessarily
imply a weak intellect of a fickle
disposition. Something like this we
have had occassion to ay before
Then, as now, however, it seemed
worth while to state that frcquen
changes of mind with respect to
great issues do not tend to inspire
confidence in any man who assumes
to be the leader of the people. We ;
expect our leaders to have well j
founded and well matured convic
tions on the doctrines we hold in
common with them, and if they i
change we are disapponited and dis
couraged. This was said with re
spect to the great and startling
changes of opinions tha; have char
acterized the recent career of Colonel
Roosevelt. What wa« said of him i
' may with equal justice he said of Mr.
In 1 i*08 Mr. Taft wrote of Colonel
"It remained for Mr. Roosevelt to
'prove how the people will respond
'to a strong true leadership when
their hour is come for a yfroat re
form. The policies which he in- !
augurated must he continued and
developed. They are right and they
are the policies of the people."
In 15)12 Mr. Taft -aid of this same
great and good Colonel Roosevelt:
"One who so lightly regards con- J
stitu'fional principles, and especially 1
the independence of the Judiciary. !
one who is so naturally impatient I
of legal restraints, and of due legal
procedure, and who has so mi-under
stood what Ubertly regulated by lav/ I
Is would not safely be trusted with
How shall any one follow ‘the
leadership of Mr. Taft after that? j
If anybody knows Col Roosevelt, j
it should he Mr. Taft. Yet see what
a tremendous gulf lies between "heee
two opinions of him. For the pur
pose of tliis arguement it really i
makes no difference as to which of
these opinions i~ the correct one, or'
whether either of them is correct, j
Our confidence in Mr Taft’s judg-1
menf or in his sincerity must he
sorely shaken, is a man really fit j
to he president—fit to chose the men
who mu -1 serve the people in ap- J
polntive offices who ran made such
tremendous mistakes in his judg
ments of men?

HIGH COST OF MAR
KETING FARM PRODUCTS
S. A. LINDSEY.
Tyler, Tex., Sept. 23.—S. A. Lind
sey, chairpian of the subcommittee
on production and marketing of
farm products, has been conducting
an investigation into the high cost
of marketing, on behalf of he Wel
fare Commission. There have been
shipped out from this city this sea
son 1,571 car loads of peaches to
out of state points and the last end
of the crop rotted on the ground for
wan' of a market* although the con
sumer was anxious for the fruit.
A great deal of the Texas product
goes to Colorado and Mr. Lindesy’s
investigation into market condition
at Colorado points shows peaches
that the Texas producer go's sixty
cents per bushel for packed and de
livered f. o. b. Tyler at a cost of
twenty-seven cent- for picking, pack
ing and hauling, sell to the Colorado
consumer at $3.75 per bushel, and
when the market drops to $3.4 2 per
bushel the Texas farmer gets noth
ing for his peaches. The cost per
bushel of marketing" a bu-hel of
peaches in Boulder, a common point
with Denver, is distributed as fol
lows: Picking, 2 cents; packing, 2
cents; package, 20 cents; hauling.
3 cents; freight 40 cents; icing 15
cents; handling after reaching Colo
rado, $2.60; to al, $3.42. It follow’
that peaches which sell to the Colo
rado consumer for $3.75 brought the
Texas producer 33 cents.
The co«t of handling the peaches
after they get to Colorad is more
than four times the cost f. o. b. Tyler
and nearly five times the cost of the
freight and icing charge? added to
This situation exists to a greater
or lesser degree with all perishable
farm products, and many that arc
not strictly perishable.
The high cost of marketing re
flects it- results upon Texas pro
ducers in that it lessens the con
sumption of the quantity and re
duces prices below the cost of pro
