SOME COTTON MILL FIGURES Fallacy of Republican Arguments Con cerning the Textile Trade Is Piti lessly Exposed by Official State Sta tiatica Gathered in Massachusetts. We have seen In this campnltin few ttl'vgs moro delicious than the ltepub llcan campaign document In which Theodore Justice speaks of the tex tile trade "where the protective bene fits of the tariff nearly all go to labor." Well, if they do. tiey are very slight The Massachusetts bureau of statistics has shown that while only ;,2 per cent, of the dS.'I.OOO men, women nnd chil dren In all the Industries get less than $10 a week. 7& per cent of the cottou workers get less than that amount. More than half the wag" earners cov ered by this report receive less than $10 n week And they are prnctlcully all protected. In the Massachusetts cotton mills about half the employes receive less than $8 a week. It was not long ago shown that In one of the highly protected Industrie,. 10 per cent, of the employes did not make a living wage Figures might be piled liiKh but those wa have given will serve It may be laid down as a general prin ciple that wages In protected Indus tries nn almost without exception low cr than those In unprotected Indus tries Wages of from $7 to $10 u week can hardly be called generous. As a matter of fact, they ure not enough to enable those who get them to main tain "the American standard of liv ing." There are certain men who talk a gn at deal about child labor, and who eeetn to feel that employera kid nap the children and make them work tn the mills The truth, of course, la that' In our protected industries wages aru often so low that It la necossury for wives and children to go to work In order to help support the family It Is surprising that Mr Justice and others like him should think that the American people can longer be fooled by the old "arguments " The figures that disprove the theory ure within the reach of all. It la simply absurd lo sny that In the toMllc Industries "tho protective benefits of the tnrlfT nearly all go to labor" The fact Is other wise In Mr I-nuck's Atlantic article, entitled "A Heal Myth." Is thla: "A yard of man's worsted suiting was found by the tariff board to cost an American mill $1.71 to place on the market The rate of payment to the weaver on this cloth was ascertained to be only U cents a yard, but the pres ent tariff duty Is $1.02." 11 wa credit to protection the whole D oents which tho laborer recelv, -which Is absurd, slnro he would get something, tariff or no tariff we still have !i7 centB of the tariff duty to ac count for Manifestly It does not go to the workman, for he gets only 5 route. We fear that it finds Its way into the pocketB of the employer Here Is a protective duty of $1.02 designed to cover the difference between labor costs here and abroad, and yet the total labor cost Is 5 cents Mr. Justice can hardly expect the American work lugmen to accept this statement. If thla Is the beat that protection can do it la in a bad way Indianapolis Nowa. If Taft stande for the "Interest," Roosevelt represents the principal; and Porklns gets the commission or, the deal. His Title to Fame. Mr. Roosevelt haa a number of t titles to distinction which his friends, j with characterlatic modesty, are re fraining from putting forward. Mr. Rooaevelt Is the president who i completed tho monopoly of tbe steel tngt by enabling that truat, In dofl- ! ance of law, to absorb the Tonnessee Coal and Iron company That Is quite a feat In Itself. Mr. Roosevelt is the preslden. who employed the secret service of the , REMAINS ABOUT SAME NO DANGER OF A DEADLOCK Woodrow Wilson Will Easily Have a Majority of Voteu In the Electoral College. Those "worrited" gentlemen who are wondering what will happen If no presidential candidate gets a majority of the electoral vntes this fn'l may calm their troubled minds if they possess such The contingency that Is troubling them will not arise. A gentleman named Woodrow Wil son will have a majority of tho votes In the electoral college, with a con siderable number to spare He will have them becuuse he Is the only Candidate before the country who Is basing his campaign on the needs and rights of the whole American peo ple. He Is the only candidate before the country to whom tho people ran look for a reduction of the high cost of liv ing. He Is the only candidal e before the country who Is under no obligation to about the tariff- and his mind on this point Is the mlrd of the nation. He Is the onlv candidate before the routnry who Is under no obligation to special lntematl, nnd free to give his entire service to the people. Mr Taft wnnts to be "vindicated " Mr Hooaevelt wants to wear the Jeweled crown of a king Governor Wilson wnnts nothing but an opportunity for public service. He a III get It Ten Wilson Reasons. It Is conceded by all that the elec tion of Governor Wlleon means an Im mediate downward revision of the tar Iff. This Is the cause of the wild out j cry In certain quarters against the j election of Governor Wilson The wool trust Is crying out against ihe election of Governor Wilson and the downward revision of the tariff. The cotton mill trust is crying out against the election of Governor Wil son nnd the downward revision of tho tariff. The harvester trust Is crying out araltiBt the election of Governor Wil son and the downward revision of the tariff. The augar trust la crying out against the election of Governor Wil son ond the downward revision of the tariff. The steel trust Ib crying out against the election of Governor Wilson and the downward revision of the tariff. The Aldrlch rubber trust Is crying out against the election of Governor Wilson nnd the downward revision ol the tariff The Guggenheim smelter trust la t rying out against the election of Gov crnor Wilson nnd the downward revi sion of the tariff Oeorge W Perkins, political agent of the Morgan Interests and the asBO elated trusts, Is crying out against the election of Governor Wilson and th' downward revision of the tariff Prank A Munsey, press agent of the steel trttBt. 1b crying out against the election of Governor Wilson nnd the downward revision of the tariff. Theodore Hooaevelt. all things to all trusts, the side show by which the "In terests" hope to divert public atten tion from the real Isaues of the cam paign. Is crying out against the elec tlon of Governor Wilson and the down ward revision of the tariff. These are ten unanswerable reasons why Governor Wilson should be elect ed, and the downward revision of the tariff should begin. Tariff Creates Trusts. The tarlfT shuts out foreign compe tltlon. It creates trusts It offers a prize for the exploitation of the home consumer and brings forth agencies which do the exploiting. United States to spy on congressmen who objected to taking orders from the White HouBe. This Is a work aurely deaervlng of fame Mr. Roosevelt Is the president who created tho panic which made every bank In the United States auspond payment nt the same time. That If a performance which atands unique In tho history of the nation. Mr. Rooacvelt'B friends ought tc mention these things when appealing for votes. There's no profit In being too modest. SUCCESS FOLLOWS JUDICIOUS FARMING IN WESTERN CANADA IT IB CERTAIN. The story of the nig Farmer In Western Canada, and the Immense proflta he has made In the growing of grain, has been told and retold. He lias been found In all parts of tho previa Pan of Mnnltoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. Ills splendid farm build ings have been pictured, his traction outfits described and his princely sur roundings, resultant of his bucccbb in growing grain, hove been portrayed by letter, press and camera. It certainly Is not to hla discredit that by auo cessfully applying common sense and up to-date methods to the conditions that climate, a good Boll, and splendid market have placed at hand, that ha has made the beat ubb of them. Ho Is not too proud to admit that he came to the country a very few yeara ago handicapped aa to money, leaving be hind him unpaid mortgages In bis of! home land (which are now wiped out), and he la still today tbe same good hearted fellow he was In the days that he had to work for a neighbor, while tho neighbor broke tho land on hi homeatead, which' went to make up tb settlement duties. Then, there, too, Is the fanner and the farmer'a eon, already wealthy, who htiB bought large holdlnge In Western Canada, in either Manitoba, Saskatche wan or Alberta, who has mado forty ' to one hundred per cent, on hla inveat ment, whoBe big grain crops and whose ImmenBo cottlo herds are help ing to lmprovo tho country. Health and strength, energy and push, and btrll dog grit are aa essential in West, cm Canada aa In Ohio, Indiana. 111k nolB, Iowa, or any of tho states from which so many of these people come, end then, when you hove added to that a fair amount of means, wltb which to make a start, the land which Is only watting for the skill of thi husbandman will quickly respond. Hut there Is the smaller farmer, th man who has not made sufficient Id ( four or five years, that ho might com fortably retire If ho felt like It. There are many of them In all tho thre ProvlnceB. It 1b not tho less to his credit that ho has earned his homo ', stead by the three years resldcnco that bn Ib free from debt, und has r reasonable bank account. He, too enmo to the country handicapped bj debts, and with very little means, lit Is contented, has a good home, lan , free of encumbrance, some stock, and with good prospects. One of thes writes- "I formerly lived near Day ton, Ohio, on a rented farm, had nt good a chance as tho average renter, hut after ten years of hard work, satis fied myself that If I ever eipected tc secure a home, I would have to under I take something else. Henrlng of West sn Canada, I Investigated, and seven ! years ugo last 8prlng settled in a homestead and purchased (on time) an adjoining half Bcctton, arriving With a cnrlond of household effects and Tarm Implements, Including four horses nnd three cows, and $1.S00 In money my ten years' work In Ohio. "Thfl first year our crops gave ua feed, the second year 100 acres of wheat gnvo us $1.S00; no failure of crop since starting here. I have now 22 head of horses, 15 head of cattle, ! nnd 35 hogs. We ow n 1,120 acres of land, and have same all under cultiva tion. Wus offered at one time $35.00 per acre for a half section where wo live, and ull the other land could be Fold today on present market at $30 00 ' per acre. Should wc care to dispose of our holdings, could pay all debts and have over $30,000 to the good, but Ihe question is where could we go to Invest our money and get as good re turns as here? "We have equally as good, If not bet ter proBpectB for crops this year, as i we had three years ago, when our wheat reached from 30 to 4S bushels per acre. I never believed such cropo ' could be raised until I saw them my- self. I had IB acres that year that made 50 bushels to the acre. Our har vest will be ready by the 12th. We have this Benson In crop 100 acres of wheat, 12.1 of oats, iio of flax, and run three binders, with four men to do Ojv stooklng. a 'We certainly like this country, and 1 tht Winters, although tha winters nro cold nt times, but we do not suffer an one would think. What we have ac complished here can be duplicated In almost any of the new districts.
