A lot of American* have been deceived about the products of our farm#. The department of agriculture, under the lames Wilson administration, has always pursued the old spread policy of brag and bluster, and the standpat policy of shouting that thing* arc in beautiful shape, and therefore why not stand pat? And now comes that great agriculttir.il e\pert, Dr. Mop kins of Illinois, and shows that our fatnis haven't been pro ducing anything like the output that we have been led to suppose. About the only farm products which have incteased with in the past decade are potatoes anil cotton. And as to cotton, while the crop has increased 11.7 per cent, the acreage has increased M per cent. So the cotton is not as £ood as it used to be in pounds per acre. The department of agriculture has dealt in roseate "esti mates" which have helped beat the price down—good crop estimates being always "bear" estimates. But when the census bureau counted up the actual bushels, pounds, and tons, these "estimates" always fell short. The department "estimates" always shouted "unprece dented prosperity for the farmers I" But the census shows actual amounts The department showed an increase in corn in the southern states irora 1899 to 1909. BUT THE CENSUS SHOWED A DECREASE OF 7 PER CENT! The department exaggeration of Virginia corn for 190> was 24 per cent; for North Carolina corn, per cent; for Georgia corn. 55 per cent, for Florida corn, l'> per cent; for South Carolina corn. 77 per cent; for Alabama corn, 42 per cent; for Louisiana corn, °7 per cent; for Mississippi corn. 4J per cent; for Arkansas corn, 34 per cent; for West Virginia corn, 61 per cent; for Tennessee corn, 16 per cent; for Ken tucky corn, 24 per cent, and for Te*as corn. 62 per cent —all as compared with the census returns. This might be excusable on some ground or other. But the hornblowing policy of the department has been notorious «11 along the line. The truth is that the census reveals the fact that while our population has increased in a decade 21 per cent, the termed lantfs have also increased in acreage by 15.4 per cent BUT WITH ALL THIS INCREASE IN FARMED LANDS THE CENSUS SHOWS AN INCREASE OF ONLY 1.7 PER CENT IN THE TOTAL CEREAL CROPS. So that the James Wilson administration went out of office with the acres over which it presided showing an actual decrease in their yields. This may not he the fault of the administration—but it is its fault that the facts were Qoacealed. It is a very important fact that our farm yields ar« decreasing per acre, and per capita of our population It presents a situation for the new administration of the depart ment of agriculture to face. And it throws some light on the increasing cost of living. Especially does it justify the Wood row Wilson administration m throwing down the tariff bars to the admission of foodstuffs.
