Stappenbeck’s Pharmacy Binder Twine Plant a Mistake. M. Wes. Tubbs, editor of the Equity Journal, the organ of the society in this state, has experienced a change of heart concerning the prison binder twine plant proposition which the re cent legislature appropriated $240,000 to promote. In a recent communica tion to the Madison Journal, Mr. Tubbs says: With your permission I will take this opportunity to say that in view of the changed conditions since the proposi tion was first proposed several years ago, I deem it of very doubtful expedi ency for the state to engage in the manufacture of binder twine. My per sonal recommendation before the exec utive board of our organization was to stand for the enactment of the law as had been demanded by the farmers and promised in the platform of the domi nant party, but to request an alterna tive and after covering the general proposition in the '‘twine bill” and pro viding the necessary funds for carrying on the enterprise, then add another section giving the board of control op tion to equip for and manufacture road building, land-clearing or agricultural machinery, if investigation developed the fact that the public interests could be better conserved thereby. This recommendation was repeated editorially in the June 25th issue of the Wisconsin Equity News, our state pap er, and I shall recommend to our com ing state convention that our organiza tion go on record as favoring machin ery manufacturers instead of twine, owing to the changed conditions and possibility of loss if not of failure on the twine proposition. There is much work that must be done at the prison plant and consider able investigation must be made be fore any line of manufacturing can be safely undertaken so there will be no great loss in the delay, and the board of control can in the meantime get in shape to act promptly and intelligently and for the best interests of the state, if it develops that the manufacture of twine is not now essential to prevent extortionate prices on this commodity.
