While various plans were proposed
to raise money, including that of J.
S. Coxey of Masslllon and Mt. Vernon,
to issue bonds of ?100,000,000 bearing
interest not to exceed one-half of 1
per cent per annum, exempt from tax
ation and to be held as legal reserves
of banks, organized under state laws,
the concensus of opinion was that the
plan of a direct levy through legisla
tive act was tho most feasible.
Desire for Roads Strong.
In his retiring address, President A.
H. Huston" of Columbus made a state
ment that no other state has a so well
founded desire for good roads as Ohio.
The following officers were elected :
Jesse Taylor, Jamestown, president;

Ohio Leads In Clay Products.
Ohio led all of the states in the
value of its clay products during 1911
by rolling up a total of $32,603,895.
Pennsylvania was second with a total
value of $20,272,033; New Jersey was
third with ?18,178,228; Illinois was
fourth with $14,333,011, and New
York fifth with $10,181,370. Of these
five states only Ohio and New Jersey
showed a gain in value of output over
1910, the Increase in this state being
$1,687,573 and in New Jersey $343,
919. The total value of all clay prod
ucts marketed In the United States
last year was $162,236,181, a decrease
of $7,879,793 from the value of such
products for 1910, when it was $170,
115,974. Of the two great divisions of the in
dustry, brick and tile and pottery, the
pottery trade showed an Increase. The
decrease In the brick and tile Indus
try wbb $8,613,075; the Increase in the
pottery industry was $733,882.
Shortage of Cars.
Columbus. Shortage of cars is the
main agency tbat is preventing the
coal mines of the state of Ohio from
operating full time at tho present, ac
cording to President John Moore of
the Ohio miners. All of the mines
are working -part time, ho says, and
the majority of them would be work
ing full time If the railroad companies
could furnish sufficient cars to move
tho coal. In the eastern part of the
state Mr. Moore says that there Is a
'scarcity of miners to man tho mines,
but ho deolared that the' total output
of the Ohio mines this year will equal,
If not exceed, that of last year.
Will Start Branches.
The liability board of awards has
decided to establish a branch office in
Cincinnati. This move, In the opinion
of tho board members, marks the be
ginning of a big increase In tho 'busi
ness of tho department and it Is ex
pected that branches will soon be
started In tho othor large cities.
Branches are considered necessary for
tho convenience of contributing em
ployers, tho holding of board sessions,
tho providing of adequate facllltlqs for
proof of claims by Injured workmen,
nnd far tho effective prosecution Qf
tho board's work.
Cincinnati. Conrad Plund, aged
52, a baker of Mt. Healthy, O., died In
a hospital in this city from a stab
wound, said by the man shortly be
fore ho died, to' havo been Inflicted by
hla falling Fn a knife. His wife was
arrested nnd charged with cutting,
but wns released Bhortly afterwards on
Want Board Wiped Out.
Secretary W. C. Arthur of the state
liability board of awards has an
nounced ho had positive Information
Unit Indemnity insurance companies
were backing a bill to be presented to
the next goneral assembly wiping out
tho state board and making it compul
sory for employers to buy insurance
from corporations engaged in that
business. The plan, it; is contended,
would provide compensation for in
jured workmen, but it would rial bo
handled by tho stato and the stale
'.control would be thus wiped out,
To Fight White Plague.
Columbus. In a proclamation just
Issued by " Gov, Harmon, Sunday,
Oct. 27, is designated "Tubercu
losis Day," and tho peoplo of Ohio
are asked to observe it as such. Phil
anthropic organizations and individ
uals are urged to aid tho movement
to stamp out this disease, which an
nually destroys 200,000 in tho United
States. Tho governor's proclamation
is aB follows:
"Tho terrlblo ravages of tubercu
losis in tho United States, destroying,
as It does,. 200,000 persons each year,
has led to organized fight in tills coun
try looking toward its extinction. Sci
entific research has disclosed Its pre
vention, and, under favorable condi
tions, the curOj Societies havo been
formed over the' world to. combat this
plague, rightly called tho greatest of
nil the ills which destroy human life.
''This should bo followed by general
Information 'on tho part of our peoplo
as to Its cnuso and methods by which
its fearful work may ' bo conquered.
In tills way alone can this monster,
which every year consumes thousands
of lives, millions of money, untold
physical suffering and misery, be
finally stamped "out.
"To tho end that Ohio may earnest
ly engage in this most laudable ef
fort, all philanthropic organizations
and all individuals are requested to
observe Sunday, Oct. 27, 1912, desig
nated as Tuberculosis Day, In spread
ing every form of information as to
the character, prevention and cure of
Circulars Sent Broadcast.
Columbus. Through a state-wide
campaign, tho Ohio Society for the
Prevention of Tuberculosis Is carry
ing out a policy of health education
by which it plans to reach personally
each pupil in the public schools of the
state. The preliminary work was be
gun two weeks ago and tho .malls have
been flooded with circulars which are
to'be posted in all public schoolrooms
in the state.
The details of the work have been
arranged at the local office of tho so
ciety under the supervision of Dr. Rob
ert G. Patterson, executive secretary.
Co-operating with him are school su
perintendents of the Btate. Posters
will be mailed to the cities and the
county districts and distributed by
teachers. In all counties when there
are tuberculosis leagues the members
of these organizations also will be
asked to assist.
Advice on Placards.
The placards proclaim In huge let
ters that consumption is not Inherited,
but is contracted mainly through the
spread of germs by persons afflicted.
A list of "don'ts" reads:
Do not put pins In your mouths,
put anything in your, mouths but
foods and drink, put pencils in
your mouths or wet them with
your lips, swap apple cores,
candy, or chewing gum or any
thing that is put into your mouths.
Do not spit except In spittoons,
or in a handkerchief which can
ie burned. Never spit on a slate,
floor, sidewalk, or playground.
Never cougli or sneeze without
covering your mouth. Koep your
hands -and face clean and wash
your bands before- each meal.
To kep your health you should
havo plenty of fresh air in the
room where you sleep. When you
do not feel well or haVe been hurt
report to the teacher.
Miller to Aid Camplagn.
In all, 16,000 posters aro being dh
tributed and the members of the so
ciety hope, with these staring from
the walls of the schoolrooms, to inter
est tho children in taking be'tter cave
of themselves. Other plans are to be
worked out from time to time, while
instructions in hygiene will be given.
School Commissioner Miller also
has taken an active part in the new
campaign and declares he will do
everything he can. to further it.
May Test Opinion in Court.
It has been learned that suit muy
be started soon to test tho correct
ness of Attorney General Hogan's
opinion to State Insurance Superin
tendent Moore and the state liability
board of awards, that an Insurance
company cannot contract in Ohio to
indemnify an employer from tho result
of injuries occasioned by his willful
act or' from his failure to observe tho
laws for tho protection of tho life and
safety of employes.
Nearly every company operating in
tho state has protested that tho opln
ioni3 not correct and that adoption of
tho requirements as broad as embod
ied In the order would drive them out
of the state and preclude many mil
lion dollars' worth of business.
Gas People to Fight.
Natural gas companies probably will
resist In tho courts obedienco to an
opinion rendered by Attorney General
Hogan to the state tax commission

states, and distributed in this state
shall bo considered intrastate com
merce and bo taxed. The companies

PROSPERITY CAN BE ADVERSELY

PLAIN TRUTH FOR FARMERS
Statement That Good Times Will Con
tinue, No Matter Who Is Elected, Is
Shown to Be False, Because Legis
lation Affects Prices of Farm Prod
ucts. In a recent lsuue of Successful Farm
ing, under the heading "A Popularity
Contest," there appeared among oth
er things this paragraph:
"This Is the year of our Lord 1912,
when the farmers push back the ex
cited and noisy politicians and say
'Go chaso yourself. You can't mako
prosperity any more than you can
make rain or sunshine. Tho goods
you are talking about are adulterated
with ninety-nine jor cent selfishness
and political rot. We've got tho gen
uine .over In our tent. Good-bye.' "
Tho paragraph was written in good
faith, doubtless by one who honestly
believes tho prosperity of this country
will not bo In any way affected, no
matter how tho election goes in No
vember. That was precisely the position
taken by the Democratic orators and
newspapers In 1892. That was a year
of most, bountiful crops, It will be re
membered, and good prices. Facto
ries wero running full force, capital
was eagerly seeking Investment, labor
was fully employed. In a word, It was
tho most prosperous year the country
had known up to that time. The Re
publicans tried to make the people be
lieve that they ought not to endanger
that prosperity by changing political
management. But they were jeered
then as the above paragraph In Suc
cessful Farming Jeers them now.
"Prosperity is a gift of God nnd not
of politicians," the Republicans were1
told, and thoy were accused of a sort
of blasphemy for attempting to argue
that a Democratic "victory might bring
disaster. As a matter of fact nobody
expected a Democratic victory, so
business went booming right along un
til election day,
But when Ifbecamo known that
Cleveland had been elected and would
havo a Democratic congress with him
pledged to reduce tho tariff, there
camo about an Immediate change over
the wholo face of (ho business world.
Manufacturers did not daro fill their
warehouses full of goods which might
havo to compote with similar articles
of foreign make. Jobbers and whole
salers .restricted their orders to im
mediate noods, whllo all over the
country retailers bought from day to
day becauso they did not want their
hhelvcs filled with high-priced goods
when tho low-priced' flood came in.
And so It happened that although the
now tariff bill was not passed for
more than a year after Cleveland's
election, the panic began nt once. Not
what the Democratic party actually
did but what it was threatening to do
brought about the condition of uncer
tainty in the. Industrial world which
simply paralyzed the business of the
COL. ROOSEVELT'S TESTIMONY
Wilson's Election Would Mean Nation
wide Ruin, According to Former
, President's Prediction.
In tho Outlook for July 27, 1912,
Colonel Roosevelt predicted that
Woodrow Wilson's eloctlon would pro
duco a panic nnd a disaster that
would bo nation-wide. Ho said:
"If Dr.' Wilson wero eloctod,
would either have to repudiate
promises m&do about the, tarlftin tho
OF LiVING-IN 1904
country and from that paralysis It did
not-recover for four years.
Can Successful Farming give a guar
antee that the history of 1892 would
not be -repeated In 1912 It a Demo
cratic victory should come? Tho Dem
ocratic house In the present congress
passed tariff blllB affecting the duties
on thirteen billion dollars' worth of
American products in the making of
which aro employed .four million
American worklngmen. Fortunately
for the country these bills were vetoed
by a courageous Republican president.
But If a president should bo elected
who would not veto them and con
gress should again pass them, does
Successful Farming think the bUBlnesB
of the country would go booming
right along just as If nothing wore im
pending? Would manufacturers go
ahead piling up goods for future sale
witli the certainty that they would
have to meet competition from goods
made In other countries under a wage
scale one-half or one-fourth that of
"Prosperity Is a gift of God," says
Successful Farming. If that Ib true,
why was God's grace withdrawn from
this country from 1893 to 1897? In
point of fact it was not withdrawn.
The earlier and the later rains fell as
usual, the soil was just as fertile, the
peoplo were Just as industrious and
the crops wero just as bountiful as in
the preceding four years,, and yet the
price of farm products during theso
four Cleveland years fell off in tho
aggregato to four billion five hundred
million dollars compared with what
the same crops would have brought
if sold at tho prices which provalled
during tho preceding Harrison admin
istration. That 1b to any, tho penalty
which tho farmers of America paid for
four years of Democratic administra
tion was equal to one and one-half
times tho cost of the Civil war.
Bountiful crops are Indeed in a
very largo measure "tho gift of God."
But God does not look after tho mar
kets. That is man's business. And It
ia markets which really determine
tho prosperity of tho farmer. It ia not
what he pays for what ho buys, but
what he gets for what he sells that
determines his success or failure, and
the price the farmer gets for the
things he has to sell depends la larg
est measure upon the purchasing pow
er of his customer. Men who are
sleeping in city halls and eating at
public soup houses do not make
profitable customers for tho farmer.
Nobody can say absolutely, of
courso, that Democratic victory in
1912 would mean the same as Demo
cratic victory in 1892; and nobody can
absolutely guarantee that Republican
success will mean a continuation of
the good times prevailing now. But'
on which sido do the chances Ho?
Is there any particular reason why
Domocratlc victory on a similar plat
form to that adopted In 1892 should
not bring about eondltlons that pre
vailed then? And can any plausible
reason bo given why a continuation of
tho Republican party should alarm
UubIiiobb or In any way affect tho
prosperous conditions that now pre
vail? When Successful Farming positive
ly declares "No matter which party Ib f
victorious tho good ship of state will
ride the seas in safety bocnuso of
bountiful crops on farms," It Ib giv
ing its readers assurances for which
there Is no moro substantial backing
than one man's opinion and upon the
validity of which tho history of the
past casts gravo doubt.
