Would, a Change Benefit 1ml
Do YOU want a change in the admin
istration of our National Government?
This is a PERSONAL QUESTION
directed to you.
While your vote affects the welfare of
every man, woman and child in this land,
yet the question for you to decide is, what
is best for YOU?
Did you ever stop to think that if every
voter in the United States selfishly cast his
vote for the men and. things which would
bring him the greatest. PERSONAL
PROFIT, that the NET RESULT
would be of greatest benefit to the MA
This is true, isn't it?
Then the thing for you to do right now
is to sit down and figure out 'just what is
the most profitable thing for YOU. Then
you will have decided, indirectly, what is
most profitable for the nation.
You live in Michigan. For the past
four years you have faced conditions which
are cither conducive to your PROSPER
ITY and HAPPINESS or you have
been confronted by conditions that beckon
HARDSHIP and DISAPPOINT
MENT. " President TAFT has for over three
years guided the ship of state over a
course and according to charts accepted
by Republicans as most likely to land the
PEOPLE safely into the harbor of peace,
contentment, material happiness and pros
perity. Has Mr. TAFT been a true PILOT?
Are YOU ready to mutiny? Will YOU
be deceived by the flickering light of a
Let us determine just what progress has ,
been made under a Republican adminis
tration, not by rehearsing fulsome generali
ties about shops running full time, mines
operating all shifts, factories working to
capacity, workingmen getting high wages
and the farmer receiving higher prices, but
by producing FACTS and FIGURES.
Investigate conditions in Michigan. Com
pare the state's welfare now with its posi
tion in 1894 under Democratic rule.
In 1894 there were 2,325 factories in
the state, employing 68,591 males and 1 1,
787 females. Now there are 9,456 fac
tories in operation, employing 303,524
males and 52,777 females.
This is a total of OVER A QUAR
TER MILLION MORE people actually
employed in Michigan now than in 1894.
Do you know that those employes re
ceived an average of $2.23 per day in
1911? And do you know that the aver
age daily wage was $1.28 in the dark days
' Do YOU want a change?
Hours of labor?
The average number of hours' work ex
acted from each employe in 1894 was 10.9.
In 191 1 it was reduced to 9.9.
Although the day's work is one hour
LESS, the day's wage is nearly ONE
DOLLAR MORE. And the total
amount paid in wages in Michigan in 1911
was nearly SEVEN MILLION DOL
LARS IN EXCESS of the total amount
paid to labor in 1894.
But the FARMER, you may say, hov.i
has HE been benefited?
The price of wheat in 1894 was 53
cents; NOW it is $1.06. Corn WAS 36
cents while PRESENT quotations. are 66
cents per bushel. Oats, barley, rye, hay,'
butter, cheese, eggs, and milk have nearly
doubled in value. Horses, cattle, sheep
and swine have greatly increased nearly
doubled in vlue.
And conditions throughout the entire
country compare with those of Michigan.
The amount of money in circulation has
increased approximately $3 for every manl
woman and child in the United States djr
ing the Taft administration.
The total bank clearings increased from
$138,823,000,000 during Roosevelt's ad
ministration to $153,369,000,000 under
The total amount deposited in banks
under three years of Roosevelt was $11,
667.000,000. During three years of
Taft's occupancy of the White House they
amounted to $14,531,000,000.
Would you change?
The postofTice receipts during the Roose
velt administration was $162,000,000 and
they jumped to $214,000,000 during the
three years following the ascendency of
Mr. Taft to the presidential chair.
Forgetting the fine language, the oratory,
the high-sounding phrases of politicians who
seek a change for their own benefit, ask
yourself the question, "Would a
CHANGE benefit ME?"
Are you a laborer? Then ask yourself
if a change would raise YOUR wages and
ask yourself the question as to whether or
not it would throw YOUcut of a job.
You are enjoying prosperity NOW. Do
YOU want a change?
Are you a farmer? You are getting
higher prices than ever before for your
farm products. Fewer of you are working
to raise a mortgage from the homestead.
Some of you have just pulled off that
"plaster" the Democrats placed on the
homethe shelter of your wife and chil
dren. The wise man votes for what is best for
HIMSELF and those he holds dear to
Do YOU want a change?
A vote for William Howard Taft is a
bid for further prosperity and material welfare.
