"Tho first words of tho constitution are, 'We are tho people,' and they de clare that the constitution's purpose is 'to form a perfect union and to pro mote the general welfare.' To do just that is the very heart of tho Progres sive cause," declared Albert J. Bever idge, temporary chairman of tho Pro gressive national convention, In his keynote speech calling that body to order. Mr. Bevorldgo told in detail the purpose and program of the Pro gressive party. "Abuse," said he "will only strengthen it, rldteulo only hast en its growth, falsehood only speed its victory. "Knowing tho price we must pay, the secrlfice we must make, the bur dens wo must carry, the assaults we -must endure knowing full well the cost yet we enlist and we enlist for the war. For wo know the justice of our cause and wo know, too, its cer tain triumph." Stand for Nobler America. Mr. Beveridge spoke In part as fol lows: "Wo stand for a nobler America. We stand for an undivided nation. Wo stand for a broader liberty, a fuller Justice. We stand for social brother hood as against savage individualism. Wo stand for an Intelligent co-operation instead of a reckless competition. Wo stand for mutual helpfulness In stead of mutual hatred. We stand for equal rights as a fact of life instead of catchword of politics. We stand for tho rule of tho people as a practical truth instead of a meaningless pre tense. We Btand for a representative government that represents the peo 'Ple. We battle for tho actual rights of man. That wo may do this wo found a party through which all who believe with us can work with us, or, rather, wo declare our allegiance to the party which the peoplo themselves have founded." Tho speaker discussed the Repub lican and Democratic parties, the "boss system" and "special interests," saying, nmong other things: "At tho present moment notorious bosses are in tho saddle of both old parties in various Important states which must bo carried to elect a president. Neith er of tho old parties' nominees for president can escape obligation to these old party bosses, nor shako their practical hold on many powerful mombers of tho national legislature. 'Under this boss system, no matter which party wins, tho peoplo soldom win, but tho bosses almost always win." Women Defeat Recall. San FranclBco, Cal.

NOTABLE EVENT ill DENMARK Danish-American National Park at Reblld Hills, Gift of American Danes, Is Formally Dedicated. Copenhagen, Denmark. An event of peculiar Interest to America took place at Reblld Hills August 5 when tho new Danish-American National park was formally dedicated to tho Danish nation. Tho park derives Its hyphenated name from the mode of Its Inception. Some years ago a co terie of American Danes conceived the idea of perpotuating a tract of Danish heatherland to posterity through tho medium of their American wealth. To this end a fund was started in tho United States which resulted in tho purchase of 300 acres of land. The deed to tho park was formally presented to the Danish people In the afternoon. This document formally conveys the land to Denmark for the use of tho peoplo of this and suc ceeding generations as a national park, stipulating only that on each Fourth of July tho Stars and Stripes are to bo hoisted over the tract and the park officially turned over to Americans for the day. TO CHEAPEN COST OF LIVING Recommendations Are Made by Com mittee Which Investigated Con ditions in New York State. Now York City. The committee on markets of tho New York state food Investigating commission made public its recommendations as to cheapening tho cost of living in this and other cities of the state. New Yorkers, It is estimated by the committee, spends $644,083,000 a year on food, of which 45 per cent Is mere cost of distribution. A saving of 10 or 20 per cent of that distribution, which the committee believes Its plans will cause, means from $00,000, 000 to $120,000,000 to the public. The committee concludes that the large re tail food department store, buying di rect, receiving direct and selling di rect to 25,000 to 50,000 persons, is tho best economic type in point of efficien cy, minimum of waste, satisfactory distribution and duo rewards for man agement and capital.

CONDEMNS MORGAN PROFITS Charges Roosevelt Wtih Growth of Monopoly and Holds Gary Din ners Responsible for the Control of Prices. Washington, D. C Flaying tho steel trust as an enemy of organized labor, accusing it of lowering sociolog ical conditions of Its employes and contributing to American industry, workmen and work methods un-American and foreign to tho best Interests of labor, the report of tho majority of tho Stanley steel probe committee of tho house of representatives has Just been submitted to the house. Condemns Morgan Profits. The report also hits J. P. Morgan and associates hard for being .benefi ciaries of enormous profits due to overcapitalization of subsidiary com panies of the steel corporation, and Judge E. H. Gary, and his dinners aro credited with a scheme by which prices and territory were controlled by the steel corporation after pooling agreements were discarded. Former President Roosevelt Is In dicted for making control of the steel trust absolute and Is charged with be ing responsible for the gigantic stat uro which tho trust has attained. Tho report was presented by tho chairman of the committee, Represen tative Stanley of Kentucky. It was more than a year ago that tho inquiry began. The report of the majority deals with the steel trust from Its inception and describes the various steps by which J. P. Morgan and his associates built up the corporation. In addition to recommendations for legislation suggested as remedial, tho Democratic members of the committee make gen eral accusations against the men re sponsible for the organization. Principal stockholders of the steel corporation aro accifsed of exerting a powerful and injurious influence on the business of the United States by means of control exercised through lnte. ocking directorates of railway and Industrial organizations. Tho activity of tho corporation In politics is laid bare and its Influence described, and the steel trust as a tariff beneficiary and Its part in the making of the Payne-Aldrlch tariff act are touched by tho Democrats. The committee recommends legisla tion to cure trust evils and to meet existing conditions. It condemns tho steel corporation, but does not invado the jurisdiction of the United States court, In which there is now pending a government suit for Its dissolution. Sums Up Conclusions. In summing up its conclusions, tho majority report says: Tho control of corporations by tho fed eral government la not approved. What ever may bo tho -evil results of tho elim ination of competition from tho steel business; It does not Justify such a remedy and could not bo cured by It, Such a control, semi-socialistic In Its nnturo, Is boyond tho power vested by tho consti tution In Uio federal consxess. Tho abuses can In a great measure bo remedied by giving to the operations of tho United States Steel Corporation and other like corporations tho widest pub licity, and by the strict enforcement of llaws specifically Inhibiting tho employ ment of cunning devices by which an un fair advantage over competitors Is so cured. Tho bureau' of corporations possesses the authority to thoroughly Investigate the Internal affairs of Industrial concerns doing an Interstate business. Had the character of tho steel corporation and tho natuio and the extent nf Its operations been known to tho peoplo nnd to tho pros- Women Attack Sir Rufus. Reading, England.

Wounded Man Still Declares Wife Fired Bullet Which Has Caused Paralysis. Atlanta, Ga. "God bless you," gentlemen," cried Mrs. Daisy Ulrlch Ople Grace at 4540 Jn tho afternoon whon the jury found her not guilty pf the charge of shooting her hus band. . There was a note of hysteria In Mrs. Grace's voice and she seemed on tho verge of a collapse, but her law yers patted her on tho shoulder and urged her to restrain herself and she soon became calm. Then the crowd In court cheered tho verdict and surged about Mrs. Grace, many of the women .weeping. At last the deadly whiteness of Mrs. Grace's face was relieved by a flush and she began to smile. Then she approached each of the 12 jurors and gave them thanks. "I feel like kissing and hugging you all," she said. "I trusted you all the time. I knew you would not believe what they said about me." The verdict was generally expected. It was conceded that tho state failed to sustain the charge that Mrs. Grace had drugged and shot her husband and locked him in to dio in order to get ?25,000 insurance on his life. Mrs. Grace's statement had a tre mendous effect on the jury and its main statements were generally cred ited. The case was given to the Jury at 2:30 p. m. by Judge Roan, whose charge favored Mrs. Grace. The jur ors ato dinner and about 3:30 began consideration of the case. After a little discussion It was found that all agreed Mrs. Grace was not guilty and the verdict of acquittal was ordered. Grace was not In court. He was taken back to his hotel and there heard of the verdict. "I don't" care what tho jury said," he declared. "She's as guilty as hell and she knows It." Grace announced that he would make a statement about the case and at once sue for divorce. Ident of the United States a't the time of the absorption of tho Tennessee Coal & Iron Co. it is highly Improbable that tho chief executive would In 20 minutes have given his consent to a merger Jraught with infinite Injury' to the steel industry arid to the public alike. ' The enormous earnings of tho steel corporations aro duo not to a degree of integration of efficiency not possessed by Its competitors, but to the ownership of ore reserves out of all proportion to Its output or requirements and to the control and operation of common carriers, divi sions of rates, tjnd the liberal allowances obtained from other concerns through In equitable and inordinate terminal allow ances. The business of production and transportation should be absolutely sep arate and distinct, and no industrial con cern should bo permitted to own or op crate an Interstate carrier. Legislation Recommended. The legislation recommended by the I majority consists of three bills, Ono of them, the Brandcis bill, Is designed to give an injured party tho right to institute suit to prevent tho organiza tion of n combination In restraint of trade. Another bill would provide that "no person who Is engaged as an Indi vidual or as a member of a partner ship or as a director or other officer or an employe of a corporation In the business, in whole or in part, of man ufacturing or selling railroad cars or locomotives or railroad rails or struc tural steel, or mining and selling coal shall act as a director or other ofllcoi or employe of any railroad company which conducts an Interstato com merce business." , Tho third bill Is intended to hit at tho system of interlocking director ates and would separate Industrial from railroad business.
