LABOR'S OPPOSITION IS SHOWN
TO TAFT'S DOLLAR-A-DAY THEORY
Chicago, Oct. 28. If there ever was
any doubt that "Dollar-a-Day" Taft is
the candidate of the trusts, that doubt
was dispelled when Mr. Taft spoke last
week at Gary, lnd., under the auspices
of the steel trust.: All the arransre-
ments for Mr. Taft's appearance at
the Indiana town were made through
the local committee by the represen
tatives and officials of the steel trust.
When the candidate reached Gary he
was assigned to a carriage in which
also rode E. J. Buffington, president
of the Indiana & Illinois Steel com
pany's, subsidiary organizations of the
steSl trust; W. P. Gleason, the local
superintendent, and H. S. Norton, the
local manager of the Gary Land com
pany, the real estate concern conduct
ed by the trust. These three leading
officials of the Trust which does not
recognize labor unions acted as Candi
date Taft's hosts. "Elsewhere, MY. Taft
has sought to explain his injunction
record and his friendship for union la
bor, and has made his .. bluff about
trust prosecution. At Gary he was en
tertained by, his own political kin, the
officials of the steel trust, which does
not recognize the. unions. .
President Roosevelt having given his
approval to the consolidation of the
steel trust and its only rival in busi
ness, it is regarded no more than nat
ural that his proxy for the presidency
should manifest his friendship for the
trust by appearing at Gary under the
auspices of the monopoly.
It is stated in Gary that the officials
of the trust hired, the colored men of
tne town to participate m tne parade
in honor or tne trust candidate, and
that they intimated lo all of their em
FOR A BOAT HOUSE
Contract for . Place t6 Store -Naval 1
Reserves' New Boats is Let
to Will Rich.
WORK TO BEGIN AT ONCE
Structure Wil Be Two Stories
Height, and Will Coat $1,350
Mcney is All Subscribed.
The contract for a large boat house
for the. local division of naval reserves
was let last night to -Will Rich, and
work on it will commence at once. The
beat house will be used principally for
the purpose of harboring two 28-foot
beats which will be furnished by the
government to the local division as
soon as the boat house is ready. One
of the new boats will be a whaleboat,
with seats for six rowers, and the oth
er will be a cutter, with oars for 10
men. The addition of these boats to
the equipment has been the dream of
the officers and men of the division
for many years since the ones the
division formerly had were,taken away
because there was no place where they
could be kept safely. As the buildinj
of a boat house in which to keep boats
was no small task, and would cost con
siderable money, the Booster club was
asked to aid in the project, and the
members of the club entered into the
scheme heartily, with the result that
'the funds have all been secured and
nothing remains now but to build the
boat house and receive the new boats,
In Two-Story nulldinic.
Several contractors submitted fig
ures on the plans drawn up by the of
ficers of the division, and the bid of
Will Rich was the one accepted. The
plans call for a two-story house built
on two barges, each 10 by 40 feet, plac-
ed 16 feet apart. This leaves an open
space for running the boats into the
house side by side, and they can then
be swung up on davits out of the water
and placed on the barges, which in
sures them being kept in first class
condition all the time; The second
story of the boat house will contain
locker rooms and places for the stor
age of sails, oars and other nautical
supplies. There is a three-foot prom
enade, deck built around the entire
boat house on the second floor. The
top of the house is fiat and will be used
as a signal deck. The whole boat house
will cost about $1,350, over a third of
which was raised by the Booster clubi
The lumber,, for the boat house Is all
on hand now and tne work will be
pushed this winter so that the float
will be ready for the new boats by the
opening of navigation next year.
HntrrvM Much Elated.
The officers and members of the di
vision are considerably elated over the
fact that their dreams have at last
been fulfilled.' They have all worked
hard for the furthering of the project
and most of them are financially inter
ested to the extent of their cruise pay
from the last trip. The jackies all
wish to do their share of paying for
the house, and at the suggestion of
one of them soon after their return
from the cruise, most of their pay was
subscribed to aid the work of building
the protection for the boats. When
the new boats come the reserves will
put in considerable of their time in
practice drills on the water, which will
include sailing, rowing, and swimming.
The house will very likely be placed!
in the vicinity of the Island City boat
ployes hat it would be best for them
to march behind the trust banners or
endanger their jobs.
When Mr. Marshall, the democratic
candidate for governor of Indiana,
went to Gary, the steel trust employes
were kept at work on "overtime" in
order that they -might not have an op
portunity to hear him. It is also the
plan of the trust officials to follow the
same tactics next Saturday in order to
prevent, if possible, their employes
from hearing Mr. Bryan when he
speaks at Gary,

IGNORANCE OR WORSE.
How Mr..Taft's tariff Speeches Affect
Journals which p.-ty some attention
to common trutbfuluc-saand economic
sense and which desire Mr. Taffs elec
tion are alarmed by Lis rtveut state
ments In the west concerning the tar
iff. Thus the New York Times under
the heading, "The Facts Versus Mr.
Taft," takes up his charge that Mr.
Bryan was responsible for those fea
tures of the Gorman-Wilson tariff bill
of 1SW which led Mr. Cleveland to
denounce it as "a piece of iierfljy."
As, the Times points out, it is well
known that President Cleveland de
nounced only the corrupt protective
features which were added to the bill
in the senate by Gorman and iiLs a I
lies, "representing the sugar trust and
other trusts, und to which Mr. Bryan
and other Democrats in the lower
house were bitterly opposed.
The Times next takes up Mr. Taft's
clalm tuat tue tarlff of 1SU4 801:1 down
the prices of farm products and was
responsible for the Lusiuess depression
of 1803. uud following years, provin
Mr, Taft's price figures to be much too
low by comparison with the statistical
abstract issued by the government and
showing that if the tariff xciit corn
and oats down it just as surely sent
wheat up duriug the three years in
which it was iu force. The troth is
that neither the changes in the prices
of grain nor the general depression in
business is now attributed to the Wil
sou tariff by any one who regards the
As a cause for the depression of 1SD3
and the low prices of that period ns
compared with later prices Mr. Taft
can pee nothing but thc tariff, taking
no -account of the financial causes of
the panic, the uncertainty lu regiird to
the standard of value brought about
by both parties and the extremely low
general level of prices caused by the
scarcity in the world's supply of gold
In explaining the higher prices of
recent years Mr. Taft attaches no sig
ulfieance to the crop conditions of for
eign countries and their demands upon
our farm products, nor has he ap
parently heard of the great deprecia
tiou of gold, the general rise of prices
caused by the Increase in the world's
gold production from $157,000,0110 hi
1S03 to $400,000,000 in ItHNJ.
The Wilson bill, after being Uor-
niunized iu the senate, lowered very
slightly the rates of the McKluley tar
iff, only an average of 3 ier cent ac
cording to one estimate. As farm
prinlucts are exported in large quanti
ties, their prices being fixed in the
opeu markets of the world, it is ab-
surd to contend that changes in our
tariff were; the cause of Ihe depression
during the period following 1803, es
pecially in view of the existence of
well known and adequate causes.
The . New York Evening Post, also
supporting Mr. Taft, says that the
panle of 1803 "was distinctly fore
shadowed by causes having not the
remotest relation to the tariff." The
Tost adds that, Judging from letters
received and general comment, "some
thing like two or "three thousand best
tatlng voters must be turned from Mr.
Taft every time he expounds anew his
' Free List For Watches.
To those who use, watches these fig

its gratitude by making the follow in

A National Scandal.
That numerous men prominent In
public life liave been corrupted by
money spent to control the tariff is
fact of which there is - concjusiv
proof. v Our tariff sc hedules and the
methods followed in working them out
