IS STILL UNSOLVED|
PARTY IN POWER IS IN TROUBLE P
OVER HIGH COST OF
LIVING.
STATISTICS CAUSE A FUSS h
Price Reports of Bureau of Labor in 1
Controversy-Republicans Attack ,
the Tariff Policy of the p
Democrats.
By GEORGE CLINTON b
Washington-The party in power is t
having some little trouble through the ii
still unsolved problem of the high cost
of living. Not long ago a member of in
the industrial commission reported, k
without supplementary explanations. m
that there were 150,000 unemployed t
persona in New York city. This the a
Republicans seized instantly as a
basis for criticism of the Democrats' t
tariff policy, saying the reductions in a
the rates were responsible for the f
unemployed. t
The industrial commission is a gov- t
eminent body and the majority of its v
members are Democrats. Naturally t
there was some Dempcratic resent- t
meot that a party coalpssion should v
say things to hurt the party without
giving any explanation as to the rea bI
sons for the things said. A quick ex- d
planation was coming from the com
mission that the number of unem- t
ployed was no greater this winter
thaw in other winters. I
,Now in the high cost of living mat- t
ter the Democrats again are having t
some little trouble and a Democratic a
official in a way is charged with re
sponsibility therefor. The bureau of
labor statistics gets out retail price t
reports and in one of its recent ones
it was shown that the cost of living
is as high as ever. Instantly a New
York man, said to be an expert in
such matters, challenged the statistics
bureau and said that its figures were
too high.
Hits Back at Critics.
Now the commissioner of labor sta
tistics. Royal Meeker, appointed to the
office by Woodrow Wilson. has come
back at his critics and In a longer
answer he gives the manner in which
the bureau arrived at its retail price I
conclusions and virtually challenges
anybody successfully to dispute the
recently published statistics.
One thing which will probably be 1
of specific interest to the country is t
Mr. Meeker's explanation of the way
that the bureau gathers and compiles
retail price statistics. He says in his
answer to his critics:
"Retail prices are secured from 670
stores scattered throughout 40 rep
resentative cities of the United States.
These stores are carefully selected by 4
the agents of the bureau. No "cut
rate" or "fancy" stores are taken.
Stores that trade largely with work
gmen's families are chosen. These
sores sead in to the bureau the actual
sales prices on the fifteenth of each
month of the fteon food commodities a
carried by th burea. Agents visit
the reporting annually to make

A Difficult Problem.
"Clearly increases and decreases in
prices cannot be traced from prices

It has not been practicable for re
sons explatned above.
"It would also be very desirable to

a large number of cities and a larer

because of lack of funds."

The Democrats consider that the two
criticisms have been succeesully met
and charge that they were prompted
solely by the desire of political op
ponents to put the dominant party
at a disadvantage.
The Democratic party always has
been a party of states rights and to
day, perhaps curiously enough, it is
having trouble to stand consistently
by its ancient opinions and yet to pass
the antitrust bills in the form which
it desires them to take. The bill
which when it becomes a law is ex
pected to unlock the interlocking di
rectorates of modern Industry fu'
nishes a case in which Democracy s
having trouble to avoid the charge
that it is for states rights in some
instance and not in others.
When Woodrow Wilson was gover
nor of New Jersey the anti-trust bills
known as the "seven sinters" were
made into state laws. As has been
told in these dispatches the "seven
sisters" bills form in part :he basis of
what are known as the "fire brother"
bills intended to regulate the trusts
and which are now before congress
for action. It is in the application of
the principles of the seven ;ills, drawn
to meet the condition largely existing
withip one state, to the fire bills in
tended to meet a national condition
that the Democrats are having their
worries.
Here is the way that a Republican
has put this matter of the Dbeocratic
difficulty:
"The party has used the ancient and
by it revered doctrine of states rights
in the past to check what it has called
Republican rapacities, but now it is
trying to find a way to dispose of the
bogy and yet keep it intact for the
uses of the future."
Where the Rub Comes.
In the matter of the measure drawn
to do away with interlocking director
ates, the Democrats are confronted by
a question as to whether state banks
can be brought within the provisions
of the statutes which it is proposed to
pass. The party of course wants the 1
state bank directorates separated as it
desires those of national banks shall
be, and the question is can the sepa
ration be accomplished without violat-.
ing the doctrine of states rights,
The house committee which is con- t
sidering the case has had Louis D. f
Brandeis before it as a witness and
probably as an adviser. Mr. Brandeis b
is now engaged as special counsel by n
the interstate commerce commission I
in the railroad advanced rate case.
He told the Democrats of the commit
tee that there are three ways by which F
they can pass the states rights ob
stacle by the flank and yet leave it p
there intact for further use. Accord
ing to Mr. Brandeis congress years
ago established a precedent .which
can be used this day to jfstify the
forbidding of interlocking directorates
of state banks. This precedent was a
set by the national lawmakers when a
they taxed the currency of state t
banks out of existenea
As a second method of reaching
the states rights matter through the s
federal power, Mr. Brandeis says that
all banking business of necessity par
takes of an interstate character, or.
t in other words, that it enters into in
terstate commerce and that this fact
ought to bring it well within the realm
of the power of congress to act As
a third method he says that the mat
ter can be reached thrbugh the right t
of congress to declare what matter
shall be carried in the United States
mails. Presumably th means that
the postal privileges cd be withheld
from any state bank hich declines
to comply with the w forbiddlng
the interlocking of directorates.

Members of congress, especially
when they make speech tin the capi
tol on what may seem to be trivial
Ssubjects, make every urort to show
that they are determined this aountry

FEEDING COTTON-SEED MEAL
Result of Tests Made at Arkansas Ex
periment Station-Anknale Are
Affected DIlfferently.
The experiments were undestaken
mainly to test the effects of various
methods of treatment of cottoneeed
meal in removing or lessening the
toxic action of this feed, write R. L R.
Dinwiddle and A. K. Short, Arkansas
Station. Also to learn it any sub
stance was removed from cotton-seed
meal by simple methods of extraction
with aqueous and acid solvents, or by
cooking, which would produce in ani
mals symptoms comparable with those
iproduced by the untreated meal in
corresponding amounts.
It was found, in one trial, that "fer
mentation" or decomposition of cote
ton-seed meal for 48 hours at a tem
perature of 20 to 28 degrees Centi
grade did not lessen its toxic action
when fed to pip.
Cottonseed meal, from which 2 per
cent. more of fat had been removed
by extraction with gasoline, showed no
diminution of toxicity.
In two trials it was found that cold
aqueous extraction removed from cot
ton-seed meal no substance which
could be shown to be toxic for pigs.
The extract similarly obtained by
dilute hydrochloric acid proved non
toxic in one trial. In a second test a
temporary sickness occurred in one
animal the identity of which with cot
tonseed poisoning was not established.
The fluid strained from cotton-seed
meal, after prolonged steaming, caused
death with symptoms and post-mortem
chanes of eotton-seed poisoning in
one case. This fluid, however, was not
a clear solution of matters extracted
from the meal, but contained much
material in suspension. The meal it
self, after such cooking and separation
of the fluid, also proved toxic.
In young cattle (fattening steers)
symptoms of polsonntg appeared after
a consumption of cotton-seed meal
(along with hulls) equal to from 75 to
108 per cent. of the body weight The
anatomical lesion of cotton-seed pois
oning of cattle is an interstitial ter
stitis which may end in complete
blindness.
In hogs there is a degeneration of
the musecular tissue of the heart and
of the parenchyma of the liver and
kidneye.s with extreme pasesive conges
tion of all the viscera and fd e alton
into the serous cavities, espeially the
plear. Hoi s which have recovemred
and gained their thrift did not show,
after slaughter, any microscopic
changes in these organs.
It may be noted finally that the Ill
efects resulting from the feeding of
cotton-seed may be due to a prolonged
absorption of poisonous products gen
crated in the digestive tract by decom
position or putrefacctve changes pe
culiar to this feed. The problem, how
ever, has not yet been approached
from thas point of view.
Intreoducing New Hogs.
When the new stock sow or boar is
received at the farm, put it by itself
for a month or six weeuks at least. If
at that time it seems perfectly healthy,
and has been improved in esh, it is
safe to put it with the other stock.
This is a safe preventive of the n
troductlon of disease on the farm.

In order to get the slips it is aeet
sary to bed out the tubers. The con.
mon method of bedding out the sweet

It has been found by many that on the

of slips is taken off, the sweet poite
bed must be sprinkled over thorough
ly and if any of the tubers have be
come exposed they must be covered
over. In ten or fifteen days another
crop of slips is ready for transpla.t,

be treated as before. Prom three to
five crops of slips may be taken of It
care is taken of the bed. The generd
practice is to plant in ridges from
three and a half to four feet apart
and transplant in the rows from 15 to
18 inches apart.
