BUENGER mm THIRD TERMER'S JOKE ON LABOR Brandels Shows Right to Organ ize Is Not Recognized. THE PLATFORM IS SILENT Noted Lawyer Exposea the Pllmalnesa of Promises Made to Worklngmen by Perkins and His Candidate, Who Stands for Private Monopoly. "The new party pledges itself to so* eial and industrial Justice and specific ally to 'work unceasingly for effective legislation looking to the prevention of occupational diseases, overwork. Invol untary unemployment and other in jurious effects incident to modern in dustry,' but nowhere in that long and comprehensive platform can there be found one word approving the fundamental right of labor to organize or even recognizing this right without which all other grants and concessions for improve ment of the condition of the working men are futile. The platform promises social and Industrial Justice, but does not promise industrial democracy. Th« •justice which it offers la that which 'the benevolent and wise corporation ,is prone to administer through its •wel fare department There is no promise of that justice which free American worklngmen are striving to secure for themselves through organization. In deed,, the industrial policy advocated by the new party would result in the denial of labor's right to organize. "The new party stands for the per petuation and extension of private monopoly from which the few have ever profited at the expense of the many and for the dethronement of the people have. In the past, fought so many valiant battles. That cursed product of despotism, the new .party, proposes to domesticate In out republic, proclaiming, 'We do not fear commercial power.' Certainly organ ised labor haa had experience with the great trusts which should teach all men that commercial power may be so great that it is the part of wisdom to fear It." The above declaration was made by Louis D. Brandels before the conven tion of the American Federation of Labor, Massachusetts state branch, at Fitchburg, Sept 18. Of Supreme Importance. He urges a careful study of the new party platform, particularly its effect upon labor, noting not only WHAT IT CONTAINS, but WHAT IT OMITS, adding, "When you make that exami nation you will find that there is a significant omission and that this skill fully devised platform TAKES FROM LABOR MORE THAN IT GIVES." Labor Record of Trusts. Mr. Brandels then lays bare the la bor record of the trusts, declaring that "great trusts—the steel trust, the sug ar trust, the beef trust the tobacco trust the smelter trust and a whole troop of lesser trusts—have made the extermination of organized labor from their factories the very foundation stone of their labor policy. The abili ty to defeat labor's right to combine seems to have been regarded by the trust magnates as a proper test of the efficiency of their capitalistic combina tion." Mr. Brandels showa that in 1899, during the Colorado smelters' strike, the American Smelting and Refining company closed its mills where the strikers had been employed and trans ferred the work to other mills, thus breaking the strike. The United States Steel corporation had similar success In 1901 with the Amalgamated Asso ciation of Iron and Steel Workers. Had the association been dealing with competing employers the result would have been different. The United States Steel trust was prompt in introducing this plan. June 17, 1901, six weeka after it began its operations, its execu tive committee passed this vote, which was offered by Charles Steele, a part ner of George W. Perkins in the firm of J. P. Morgan & Co.: "That we are unalterably opposed to any extension of union labor and ad vise subsidiary companies to take firm position when these questions come up and say that they are not going to rec ognize it—that is, any extension of un ion in .mills where they do not now exist." Union Men Not Wanted. The result was that the bulk of American union laboring men in the Iron and steel industry were made to understand that they were not wanted at the works of the United States Steel corporation. Places once filled by American laborers loyal to their union were given to others, and, as the Stan ley committee found, "Hordes of la borers from southern Europe poured into the United States." Hence about 80 per cent, of the un skilled laborers in the iron and steel business are foreigners of these class es, the profits going to the steel corpor ation. Mr. Brandels declared that "the Immediate and continuing result of the steel trust's triumph over organ ized labor has been an extensive sys tem of espionage and repression." There has been no disturbance of business interests during this presiden tial campaign. Why?

After Sowing Crop Needs Little Care Until Time of Harvest By Raymond Olney, M. Rumley Co. [National Crop Improvement Service.] After sowing, the rye crop will need but little care until harvest time If the crop has been sown early, for pasturage during the fall and is to be left for a grain crop, it should not be allowed to make fall growth enough to form heads. Close pasturage will prevent such a tendency. On land that is likely to be dry, it is good practice to go over the land in the spring with a light slant-tooth harrow, breaking the crust of the soil and forming a light dust mulch. No other crop serves better as a nurse crop than rye and grass seed sown in the spring and covered with a harrow, and protected against evaporation by the dust mulch it is almost sure to make a stand the following season. TEST RYE SEED. By Thomas Cooper. fNational Crop Improvement Service.] Seed rye should be tested for viability the same as any other grain Defore planting. Obtain the best seed from the crop grown on your own farm or in your vicinity. Select the best and heaviest kernels by the use of a grader and be sure it is clean from seeds of weeds. The Germination test is made by facing 100 kernels on damp white blot ting paper first placed in a shallow pie pan. Cover over with another pan ind set aside for five or six days. Ry« 'hould test a't least 96%. W00DR0W WILSON FOR PRESIDENT —Prom recent painting by Seymour Thomas »w*rfarfss*aew0»^Mi» «**Bs**akM0hAgBh RYE IN WISCONSIN. Bye a General Crop and Can Grown on a Wide Variety of Solla. [Matlonal Crop Improvement 8ervlee.] "We have two pedigreed varieties of rye which I think are the beat strains in the United States today One party after testing the pedlgres rye agreed to take all the rye Wiscon sin could produce of this strain at an advanced price. We will have a large juantity of it grown this year so we will be in position to supply this pedi gree seed rye in large and small quan tities' about August 1st," said R. A. Moore, agronomist, Wisconsin Experi ment Station. "The rye should be sown the last week in August or first week in September in order to do its very best. Rye does well on soils that are too light to grow wheat, oats ind barley. Rye Fine Cover Crop. "Rye is a general crop and can be grown on a wide variation of soils. it can be grown to advantage on low mucky soils, clay, sand or prairie soils. It makes an exceedingly fine cover *rop and affords good pasture for stock in the late fall and during the winter and early spring. It can be pastured heavily without much detri ment to the crop. As soon as tba stock is taken off.tbe*ye comes on ex seedlngly well. "We hope to get rye disseminated extensively throughout our state'and mother year we want to be able to grow sufficient of this rye to plant the whole rye acreage of the United States, providing the farmers desire) to do so." LEARN YOUR SOIL. [National Crop Improvement Service.] First learn your soil, then find the erops to fit the soil. Low yields will soon bring ruin. Work for quality first, then quantity. Making the farm pay is Just the same as making any other business pay. Know the eco nomic and climatic conditions of the locality and choose the farming sys tem that accords with conditions. TIME TO SOW RYE. By J. E. Buck, I. H. C. Service Bureau. [National Crop Improvement Service.] Rye may be sown at any time, from August 20th to October 1st, depending on the location and the purpose for which it is to be used. For fall pasture It should be sown between August BOth and September 10th, the earlier seeding being preferable. For grain only, September 1st to 15th is regard ed as a more favorable time. Seldom should the crop be sovn later than September 20th, for any purpose. HARVESTING RYE. Andrew Boss, Minn. Station. [National Crop Improvement Service.] Rye is handled with a self-binder, in the same fashion as other grains, and shocked in good-sized round shocks. To secure the best quality of grain and straw, the shocks should be capped, although this practice is not always followed. The rye straw sold for collar stuffing purposes in Minnesota is pre pared by flailing out the grain. Where special markets for straight rye straw ire being catered to special threshing machines have been devised, which keep the straw straight during thresh ing without breaking it badly. Where the straw is used for bedV ding, the crop is tureshed in the sam wav as other cereal crops. V»»Y"i* \\i' REPUBLICANS' EXTRAVAGANCE Government Cost More Than Doubled Under Roosevelt DEMOCRATS' GREAT RECORD Startling Figures Which Show That the Cost of Our National Existence, and the High Cost of Living Must/ Be Reduced. TJnder a proper downward revision of the Republican tariff schedules tba people of the United States would sava $2,000,000,000 each year, or over $100 pVr family on manufactured goods) alone. President Taft's vetoes of the wool tariff bill and the steel tariff measure passed by a Democratic house COST THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES ABOUT $650,000,000 PER ANNUM. The cost of conducting the federal government MORE THAN DOUBLED between the close of President Cleve land's second administration (Demo cratic) and the beginning of President Roosevelt's Becond administration (Re publican). As the DIRECT RESULT OF HIGH REPUBLICAN TARIFF SCHED. ULES the people of the United States pay a tax FROM NINE TO SEVEN TY-EIGHT PER QENT on food and ordinary household articles used in the home by every family, rich and poor. The total cost of running the federal government In 1S60 was $55,000,000. The amount appropriated at a single session of the Sixty-first congress fot the fiscal year 1911—$1,027,133,446.44 was more than double the amount— $954,496,055.13—appropriated for the fiscal years 1897 and 189$ at both sea. stone of the Fifty-fourth congress, the last congress of the second Cleveland administration. Only eight yean elapsed between the close of the second admlnlatration of President Cleveland and the beginning of.the second admlnlatration of Presl. dent Roosevelt and yet the amount ap proprlated during the four years of the latter $3,842,203,577.15—waa more than double that appropriated In the four years Mr. Cleveland waa at the helm—vlx, $1,871,59,857.47. For 1910, the laat fiscal year provid ed for in congress under President Roosevelt, the hlghwater mark in ap propriations—$1,044,401,857.12 was reached. President Taft's estimate to the last session of congress for government support for the fiscal year waa $1,040,. 648,026.55. In other words, governmental ex. penses for the FOUR YEARS of Presl dent Cleveland's administration (Dem ocratic) were only $830,861,551.92 mors than President Taft's (Republican) es timate of the amount necessary to cov er the expenses of ONE YEAR ol President Taft's administration. Congressman John J. Fitzgerald oi New York, a Democrat and chairman of the committee on appropriations, in addressing the house Aug. 26, 1912, on the subject of appropriations said, "Thoughtful men have watched with alarm the rapid Increase In the cost ol government in the United States." H« further said that two causes seem re sponsible for many present evils: "One. the UNFAIR AND UNJUST SYSTEM OF TAXATION by which an undue share of Income by thoss whose circumstances in life are not considered more than reasonably com fortable is taken through our customs laws for the support of our govern ment the other, the difficulty or inabil ity to readjust our system of taxation and to remove many taxes from the necessaries of life, so long as the GOV ERNMENT IS EXTRAVAGANTLY CONDUCTED, or the instrumentali ties provided for the conduct of the public service are either inefficient or are not utilized so as to render the most effective and comprehensive re sults." Mr. Fitzgerald then called attention to the fact that the Democratic party pledged itself if Intrusted with power to do two things—REDUCE TARIFF DUTIES AND RETRENCH PUB LIC EXPENDITURES by eliminating waste in administration and thte aboli tion of useless, inexcusable offices. The Republicans talk about tariff revision, and yet when a Democratic house in fulfilling Democratic promises to the people reduced the tariff, a Re publican president vetoed the measure. "By their works shall ye know them." Democrats in every state of the Union should organize and prepare for polling a record breaking vote Nov. 5. Be it remembered that no matter how certain victory seems, overconfi dence is always dangerous. Is there any reason why the Demo cratic party should go out of existence simply because Mr. Roosevelt has tak en up the Progressive measures adopt ed by the Democrats eighteen years ago?—W. J. Bryan. Mr. Roosevelt stood as a guarantor for Mr. Taft. Mr. Bryan says, "Now. when Roosevelt has failed so utterly In his judgement of men, I ask can ha paaa correct judgment on himself?"
