Most all of the women of the

thing to walk up and down the
Avenue at least once a day, but
as they usually end at restau
rants, where they eat innumer
able French pastries or toasted
English muffins with jam, while
bemoaning their stoutness, they
do not gain much by their slow
sauntering along the mile where
everybody seems rich and happy.
The way the women carry
themselves looks most peculiar to
anyone not following the vagaries
of fashion. It is almost impos

in which four out of five of the
women on the avenue walk. Bend

inward curve to your hips, then

By Oliver P. Newman.
Tills la the first of a series of articles by Oliver P.
Newman, special corresi*>ndent of this newspaper, who nan
been with Oov. Wilson every day since his uoininatlou at
lialtiinore and who has had exceptional opportunities to
study the democratic candidate.
EA GIRT, N. J. ( Oct. 22. —According to Gov. Wood
row Wilson himself, the greatest difference be-
tween him and his party on the one hand and
Roosevelt, Taft and their parties on the other, la
over the great question of trusts.
Gov. Wilson declares that Taft and the re
publican party offer no definite program for trust
regulation or limitation of monopoly. He aayg
tluit Roosevelt and his party propose to recognize
the existing trusts and monopolies, legalise them
and attempt to regulate them through a commis
sion empowered to provide rules for their con
The Wilson-democratic plan, says the can
didate, Is to prevent monopoly by the enactment
of laws which shall specifically prohibit the par
ticular acts by which monopolies have been cre
ated —favoritism in extending credit, selling at
low prices in one community to crush out a small
competitor and at high prices In another commu
nity to make it up, stock-watering and other well
known practices.
Foremost in his program, is the cutting down or removal of
the tariff on products which have boon monopolized.
Hero is the governor's own statement:
"The third party says the trusts are inevitable —thpse artifi
cially built up things—and that the only thing the government can
do—the only thing the third party proposes would be done —la to
set up a eommieetofl which is to regulate them.
"I deny absolutely that monopoly Is inevitable. And I deny that
the admirable program of social reform, for which I commend the
third party platform, can be accomplished through the forces that
have made social reform necessary.
The democratic plan is defined by Oov. Wilson as "regulated
competition." as against what ho ttfni "regulated monpoly," under
the Hoosevelt program.
"The democratic party proposes to pee to it that the trusts no
longer dominate by the means by which they have dominated, by put
ting unall beglnneri out of the gun*.
Answering the question, "Do you mean to break up big business
altogether?" Got. Wilson said:
"Certainly not. There is big business spelled with a big "B"
and there is big business spelled with a small "b." One ie Inflated,
the other ia not. One belongs to high finance, the other to every
day, workaday success and brains.
"The difference between my formula and that of the republi
cans — both wings—is this: I believe in government 11Y the people
and they believe in government FOR the people. I don't know
enough to fake care of the i>eoplo of the United States, and I ven
ture to believe there Isn't anybody el«e who knows enough. Govern
ment FOR the people Is sooner or lHter autocracy and tyranny, no
matter whether It is benevolent or not. Only government BY the
people is liberty and opportunity."
(!ov. Wilson declared emphatically for the direct primary, th«
initiative, the referendum and the recall.
