THE GRAIN tRUSi.
According to the Washington Times
testimony ofiureil before the subcom
mittee fin transportation of thenaiional
industrial commission, when in session,
would almost seem to throw a shadow
of doubt on Mr. Hanna's assertion that
sucli a thing as a trust does not exist
in the I'nited States. One witness, a
prominent merchant of the Windy City
has sworn that five men, who daily meet
in secret session after the close of the
stock exchange, dictate the price which
is to be paid to farmers for their grain
on the day following, and absolutely
control that iuestion. Kut II anna
probably would say that this is not a
trust, but only a combination for
business purposes with the methods of
which neither the law nor the public
have any legitimate concern.
"Subsidize us" is going to be the cry
at the coming session of congress. Of
course all sorts of subtle devices will be
used, but the trusts figure that they
have to pay big subsidies to the repub
lican campaign fund and they had bet
ter get value received at this session of
congress, because who knows but the
people will elect to have the democratic
party represent them next year? The
trusts will insist that the republican
party grab everything in sight for them.
Xo other sort of legislation will begin to
receive the attention that this class
will. The Philippines can wait, the
Nicaragua canal can be delayed, finan
cial legislation can be tinkered along,
but the trusts most have their subsidies.
'"The census of I!t:)0 was a failure,"
says the North American (rep.). "It
was arranged to make patronage. The
entire census patronage of Pennsylvania
is now in the hands of Quay. In Ohio,
Hanna, distributed all the pie," and
Piatt, the spoilsman of New York was the
supreme authority. The census of WOO
starts out UDder the same bad auspices,
The superintendent is nothing but a
spoilsman. He knows nothing of sta
tistics. To expect good statistical work
under such conditions would be toexpect
good pie crust from a boiler factory. A
political machine is built to turnout

The Homestead Offer This Year.
All our farmer readers should take
advantage of the unprecedented club
bing ofler we this year make, which
includes with this paper, The Iowa
Homestead, its Special Farmers' In
stitute editions, The Poultry Farmer

the best of their class and should be
in every farm home. To them we add
for local, county and general news our
own paper and make the price for the
five for one year $1.70. Never before
was so much superior reading matter
oflered for so small an amount of
money. The four papers named which
we club with our own are well known
throughout the west and commend
themselves to the reader's favorable
attention upon mere mention. The
Homestead is the great agricultural and
live stock paper of the West. The
Poultry Farmer is the most practical
poultry paper for the farmer published
in the country The Farmers' Mutual
Insurance Journal is the special advo
cate of farmers' co-operative
and the Special Farmers' Institute
editions are the most practical publica
tions for the promotion of good farming
ever published. Take advantage of this
