(From the New York Globe.)
President Taft may well feel good over
Mhnt cablegram from the governor gen
eral of the Philippines thanking him In
the namo of the Filipino people for open
ing American markets to Filipino goods.
Ten million people have reason to feol
glad that William II. Taft was called to
be their governor, became Interested In
their welfare, and that later he was
placed where his friendship counted.
It has been on the conscience of Presi
dent Taft that the Philippines have not
prospered under Amerlcnn rule, He saw
that through Ignorance, and Indifference
we were unjust that we had been guilty
of taking away from the Filipinos their
old market while not providing them a
new. For ten years, now gaining a point
but itgaln making no progress, Mr. Taft
fought to remove this stigma from thn
nation. The campaign was long and dis
couraging, for the Philippines aro fnr
awny and locnl selfishness Is strong.
At last It won.
"The obstacles to Philippine prosperity
are now (removed," cables Governur
Genernl Forbes. CVitalnly a big Job that
which wns finished on Aug. 5 by Ptesl
dent Taft, and he has a right to all the
satisfaction that comes from seeing sue
cess crown a labor of love. Whatever
may be the result of other Taft policies
It Is certain that thn Taft Philippine
policy mentis the gradual raising up of

1Fe OLD BEE HIVE
Sale Increase from Fifty Tbnmnuil
to Ten Million Cnse In f,e
Than 20 Years.
Ever since the boglnnlng of tho
Van Camp milk campaign, which has
been so vigorously maintained, specu
lation has been wide ns to whether or
not It could succeed In Its big under
taking. To attempt to wean millions
from tho use nf "fresh" milk by edu
cational advertising and make them
user of tinned milk, and In that at
tempt spend hundreds of thousands
nf dollars In newspaper space, Indi
cated that some one had a great com
mercial conviction, and was wllll.nl
to risk much money on 'he faith that
It would prove right,
Tho trade for tlnii"d milk that Van
Camp is awakening Is very largo.
Grocers universally testify that ns u
result of tho big campaign nf some
months ago they sell three Van Camp
cans where they old hut one before.
The Interesting tiling Is that other
brands are all prospering. polnIly
those that aro advertising.
The production of evaporated milk.
It Is stated. In 190 was only 50,000
cases. In 1900 t was 1.000,000 cases; ,
and estimates for this year are flgur- j
ed by those who ought to know t.t
1 0,000, 001 cases. A case contains from '
forty-eight to sevobty-two cans. I
Tin- rnpidltv with which evaporated
milk Is meeting public favor Is evl-
deneed by tho manner In which now
concerns are springing up nnd seok-
Ing business; and tho way In which
older concerns nio beginning to ad
vertise. Obviously Van Camp has stirred the
entire business to Its depths and made
them all realize how advertising can
make blades nf grass gr w where be
fore there was nothing but stevllo
sand. Printers Ink.
