NEW WILSON BOOK Policy of Next Administration Is Outlined in “The New Freedom.” RECALL ADVOCATED FOR ALL EXCEPT JUDICIARY '—i Curbing of Money Trust and Other Monopolies Is Planned. A scathing arraignment of "big business” is contained in President elect Wilson's pre-inauguration book, "The New Freedom," which made ittf appearance for the first time in the book shops here today. President-elect Wilson not only re iterates his attacks upon the trusts, but sounds a new warning to the great financial interests of the coun try. The work is considered one of the most remarkable ever put in the field, both by reason of the bitterness of its arraignment of the present financial system and by reason of its pre-inauguration exploitation of a future presidentia 1 policy. No other chief executive of the United States since the Declaration of Independence duplicated the feat of Mr. Wilson. The President-elect not only attacks the trusts and monopolies of the country, but makes it clear that he. will do all in his power to restore trade competition and individual op portunity and to disentangle com munity centralisation, which, he says, has become dangerously coordinated. Mr. Wilson arraigns ex-President Roosevelt and his program of be oevolent monopoly; strongly advo cates an advance policy of the in itiative, referendum and recall, with the exception of the recall of the ju diciary: charges the existence of a money trust, and expounds at length his political philosophy. The President-elect explains that he is not tlie actual author of the book, but that it is a collection of the more suggestive portions of his campaign speeches put together by William Uayard Hale with such interpolation as would render the work an actual exposition of Mr. Wilson’s views. The bonk is signed by Mr. Wilson. Mr. Wilson in his preface says: New Spirit of Politics. "This book is sin attempt to express the new spirit of our polities anti to set forth in large terms, which may stick, in the imagination, what it is that must be done if we are to restore our politics to their spiritual vigor ngain and our national life, whether In trade, in industry or in what con cerns us only as families and indiv iduals, to its purity, its self-respect end its Christian strength and free dom." In writing under the subject, "Mo nopoly or Opportunity?" Mr. Wilson sa ys; "I admit tho popularity of the theory that the trusts have come about through the natural develop ment of business conditions in the United States and that it is a mistake to try to oppose the processes by which they have been built up. "T answer, nevertheless, that this • ttitude rests upon a confusion of thoughts. Big business is no doubt to a large extent necessary and natural. The development of busi ness upon a large scale, upon a great scale of cooperation, is inevitable, and, let me add, is most probable; but what is a very different matter from the growth of trusts, because trusts have not grown; they have been ar tificially created. A Chance for Little Business. "For my part T want the pigmy (little business) to have a chance, and I forsee the time when the pigmies will be so much more athletic than the giants that it will be a case of .laek-the-triant-Killer. I take my stand absolutely, where every pro gressive ought to take his stand, on the proposition that private mom poly is indefnsible and intolerable, ;> mi I will fight my battle, and I know cow to fight it. I am perfectly wi ling that they (the trusts) should best any competitor by fair means, but I know the foul means they have adopted, and I know that they can be stopped by law. What we want to do is to disentangle this colossal ‘community of interests.' ” Tho Roosevelt Progressive party next comes under the lire of tho President-elect. After an analysis of Progressive party tenets Mr. Wilson finds that “the new party legalizes monopoly and systematically subordi nates working men to them and to plans made by the government, both All for 10 Cents In ord«r to Introduce the Vapocura In haler And prove that It will cure Catarrh.

The Money Trust. With regal'd to the money trust Mr. Wilson writes: "Our system of credit is privately concentrated. The growth of the 11a ion, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men, who, even if their actions be honest, neces sarily check and chill and destroy genuine economic freedom. The great monopoly of this country is a mo nopoly of credit. So long as that exists our old variety and freedom and individual energy of development are out of the question.” Mr. Wilson also alleges that monopoly has made invention unwel come, and almost impossible, and warns the Republican party that It is being deluded into playing false with the enlisted. Mr. Wilson reiterated his intention of pruning the Republican protective tariff, but scouted the idea that he was an advocate of free trade. Chimney Fire Scares Woman Although a fire-alarm box is located almost beneath her window, Mrs. Anna Williams, of 24!> Hamilton street, Harrison, ran more than two blocks to the Harrison police station yesterday and asked Patrolman John Ryan if It would be all right for her to send In an alarm for the fire de partment. “There’s a lire at my house," the woman coolly said, "but I didn’t like to pull the box until I asked about it. Ryan learned the fire was In the chimney at the Reynolds homo. Ernest Biegner, a member of Harri son Truck Company, procured an extinguisher and succeeded In putting out the blaze. The towij. incidentally, was saved $20 for horse hire. BRIDAL GOWN IS SUICIDE’S SHROUD Funeral to Take Place on Date Set for Her Wedding. Clad in what was to have been her bridal gown, Julia Kowai, who c ommitted suicide after she had been robbed and deserted in a New York boarding house by her lover, will bo buried tomorrow on the very day set aside for her wedding. The funeral will be held at 313 Warren street, the home of the girl's sister. The girl took her own life on Sat urday in a furnished room house in New York, where she had been lured, it is alleged, on a pretense of mar riage by Frank Kusc, of Babylon, Long Island. He deserted her there after robbing her of $80. part of her savings, it is claimed. They were to have been married, according to the story Kusc Is alleged to have told her. in Babvlon tomorrow. i Miss Kowai mot Kusc at a dance in a Springfield avenue auditorium. She was then working for H. S. Muschel, of 181 Hunterdon street. She j had been employed there for more ' than two years, and had saved about ?6M. Kusc began an ardent courtship, and after two weeks' wooing sug gested that they get married. He said he was a mechanical engineer, according to the girl's sister, and that his' brother had a big home in Babylon, Hong Island. “You draw your money out of the bapk, and we will go over to Babylon and get married on Wednesday," said Kusc, according to Tillie Kowai, the girl’s sister. She was a bit suspicious, and only drew out $150. “This will last us until we get over to your brother's," she said. Then they went to New York and Kusc took her to a room. It Is charged he secured her money and then left her. The girl reported his desertion to the police. Hater Detective Allen while investigating the ease found the girl asphyxiated in her room. Miss Kowai had been in this coun try only three years. She was thrifty and saved her money. Her only rela tive is her sister Tillie, who is em ployed at 313 Warren street. She is heart-broken over the affair and is on the verge of a collapse. She has been contined to her bed since bearing of the tragedy. The police are conducting an ener getic search for Kusc. It is claimed that lie has served time here for car rying concealed weapons. LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE APPROVES NEW TAX DATE Assembly Bill Gives Assessors Twenty Days More. The legislative committee compris ing the heads of the various city de partments at their weekly conference In the mayor's oflice today placed their stamp of approval on Assembly bill No. 308, fixing the date for as sessments as May 20, instead of May 1. The bill was introduced at the be hest of the board of assessment and revision of taxes, who contended that, according to the present arrangement, the assessors have only about six weeks to cover the entire city. The new bill will give them ample time to cover the city and make adequate searches. The committee also went on record as being opposed to Senate bill No. 135, abolishing th^ poll tax. The city collects 150,000 a year from the levy of this tax, it was argued, and $1 a year is little enough for any citizen to pay for protection. HELD FOR RAZOR FIGHT Charged with atrocious assault, Lucian Jenkins, a negro, 24 years old. of 106 Boydcn street, was hold in $1,000 bail for the grand jury by Judge Herr in the Second Precinct Police Court today.

PAST FIFTY? YOU | NEED “CASCARETS” What Glasses Are to Weak Eyes Cascarets Are to Weak Bowels. Most old people must give to the bowels some regular help, else they suffer from constipation. The con dition is perfectly natural. It is Just us natural as it is for old people to walk slowly, for age is never so active as youth. The muscles are less elastic. And the bowels are muscle®. So all old people need Cascarets. One might as well refuse to aid weak eyes with glasses as to neglect this gentle aid to weak bowels. The bowels must be kept active. This is ; important at all ages, but never so j much as at fifty. Age is not a time for harsh physics. Youth may occasionally whip the i bowels into activity. But a lasli can't be used every day. What the bowels of the old need is a gentle and natural tonic—one that can be con stantly used without harm. The only such tonic Is Cascarets, and they cost only ten cents per box at any drug store. They work while you sleep. Sat., Feb. 22d (Washington’s Birthday), Store Closed All Day; the Evening Before 5:30 P. M.
