Noted Yale Economist Appeals
to Fellow Progressives
With Clear Logic.
SAYS TARIFF IS THE ISSUE
Contrasts Three Party Programs and
Declares Democratic Attitude the
Only Progressive One.
By PROF. IRVING FISHER.
Note. Ir. FlHhpr 1 the noted author
ity on economics of Yale university. He
whs a member of President Roosevelt's
national conservation commission. Ed.
I write not aa a Democrat but as
an Independent Progressive and In the
hope that my letter may help other
Progressives who are wavering to
make up their minds to vote for Wil
son. So far as I can see the only
(hope of progressive legislation lies In
(the election of Wilson. My reasons,
Jn brief, follow:
1. DEADLOCK IN CONGRESS.
If It were possible to elect Mr. Taft
ithere would merely be repeated the
same deadlock with congress and fail
ure to secure progressive legislation
which has been experienced In his
If It were possible to elect Mr.
Roosevelt even less could be accom
plished, for the reason that he would
inot have a sympathetic congress.
2. DEADLOCKED ELECTION. To
be still more practical, we should con
sider that the result of us independ
ents voting for Taft or Roosevelt In
stead of for Wilson may be to pre
sent any one of the three from being
3. THE TARIFF. If, on the otherj
hand, we Independent Progressives
unite for the moBt part in voting fori
Wilson he can be elected, and, if elect
ed, can accomplish substantial legisla
tion, because with him will be elected
a sufficient number of Democrats to
give a majority In both houses. To
this my Hull Moose friends reply that
inot all Democrats are progressives
and will not carry out a progressive
This argument overlooks the fact
that the paramount issue of this cam
paign Is the tariff and that progres
sive tariff reform means progressive
tariff reduction. It is Just becauso
,the Democrats have been a party of
'negation, bo far as the tariff is con
cerned, that they, if anybody, can be
trusted to reform It downward.
Mr. Roosevelt would be equally un
able and far more unwilling than Mr.
Taft to reduce the tariff. In his seven
,years In ofllce he left the tariff un
touched, and now he speaks primarily
ias a protectionist and not as a tariff
reformer. He yields grudgingly to the
demand for tariff reduction, but gives
no clear argument for It. Instead, he
repeats the old fallacious arguments
Ho make our poor workmen believe
that a high tariff mines wages.
Governor Wilson and his party, on
the other hand, are ardent tariff re
formers. In this respect the Demo
cratic platform Is the only progressive
platform of the three.
Why should wo blind ourselves by
the Introduction of numerous other
Issues which could not be settled In
the present campaign when we have
before us the greatest Ihhuo of all, the
tarllT, which CAN he settled?
4. ISSUES ECONOMIC Wilson's
rasp of the problems of the hour far
.surpasses that of Roosevelt or Taft.
,Mr. Roosevelt has frequently admit
ted that economic problems such us
the tariff, the rout of living, the cur
rency and tlie economic problems con
nected with trust h not only have no
attraction for him, but have never
been understood by him.
r.. THE PEOPLE S INTERESTS.
Wilson Is more truly democratic than
Roosevelt nnd more untrnnimeled In
his devotion to the Interests of the
people as a whole. . . . Those who
accuso Wilson of recently adopting
new democratic doctrines becauso
tholr popularity would help him per
sonally should loarn that, on the con
trary, ho adopted them (In his fight
to democratize Princeton university)
when their unpopularity In the circles
In which his activities then lay nearly
threatened to destroy his Influence
6. PURE FOODS..-Governor Wll
son and the Democratic party have
shown a greater Interest than either
Taft or Roosevelt In the protection
of the consumer against food adul
teration and other Injuries to the pub
lic health. Dr. Wiley, although pre
viously a Republican, now has decid
ed not only to vote for Wilson, but to
help him actively in the campaign.
7. THIRD TERM. To elect Mr.
Roosevelt would deal a fatal blow to
the useful tradition against a third
term. . . . Nor do I think It alto
gether Improbable that if Mr. Roose
velt were again elected president he
would, whatever his present Inten
tions, gradually assume the role of
benevolent despot Ills natural tem
perament Is that of a dictator.
I write as one who still holds por
lonal respect both for Colonel RooBe
relt and Tresldont Taft and In no
pplrlt of personal hostility to either.
I believe that all throo candidates In
tend to do right "as Cod gives them
lo see the right," but I think neither
Tnft nor Roosovelt sees the right at
loarly as Woodrow WUuon.
GEN. GRANT'S SON
IS FOR WO
In Open Letter He Says Issue!
This Year Are Similar to
Those of 1860.
PRINCIPLES FATHER UPHELD
Same Problem Today, Writes Jest fti
Grant, In Choosing Between People
and the Interests.
Jesse R. Grant, son of General Uly
;ses S. Grant, commander In chief c4
the Union army in the Civil war and
Republican president of the United
States from 1869 to 1877, links the
generation of war veterans and thej
young voters of today in the follow
ing appeal, made public by him at hi
.home In New York:
To the Voter, Especially the Neit
We are facing the 6th of Novembe
issues of momentous Importance toj
ithe future of the United States. Shall
the old order of things contlnueT Shall
our economic life be determined shall
our government continue to be domb
nated by the thoughts, the desires ana
'the Interests of those who have been.
the principal beneficiaries of that gor4
eminent s patronage or shall the powi
er of government be handed back to,
the whole people to be administered
for their common good?
It was a similar issue fifty-two yearf
ago, when there arose from out of Illl
note a 'new leader, who held human
rights to be greater than property
rights, whose thoughts were not the.
old thoughts, whose vision of Justice
had not been clouded by association
with the ruling interests.
We are at the threshold of a new
period of transition. Shall the door be
blocked by men who cannot see ahead!
Shall we elect to follow men who,
whllo clothed with official power, nun
tured privilege and fostered monopolj
and who now propose nothing bette
than to legalize and regulate monopot
ly and make us live under it the re
of our lives?
The New Leader.
Or shall we call to leadership a ne
1 man from the outside, from the rank
of the people, In sympathy with theli,
lives and their ideals, holding theli!
viewpoint, consecrated to their servi
ice? Such a man is Woodrow Wilson
As a son of the soldier who fough
to uphold the principles for whicl
Abraham Lincoln stood and as a sou
of a Republican prudent, I can see
only one duty . for myself to give,
heartily my Influence and my vote fol,
Principle and not for the name of a
! party long since divorced from It
sympathy for the common man.
Verily, I believe that the principle
for which Woodrow Wilson Is fighting
are the principles for which my fathef
fought, and that he ulone among the
presidential candidates measures up to.
,'the standards of courage, conscience
,and capacity of the leader whose hand
my father helped to uphold.
Old voters, aa well as new, I beg ot
you not to be deceived by names and
prejudices. Open your minds to the
truth and vote In its light.

Enormous Dividends of Thread
Trust Go Abroad.
Cotton thread pays an Import duty
equivalent to 47 per cent. ThlH tariff
was levied orlglnully to build up aa
"Infant Industry" in America and pro.
tect American capital. It happens,
however, that practically all the capU
tal In the thread Industry In the Uni
ted States is foreign capital, and that
the dividends of th thread trust are
nearly all snt abroad.
The American Thread company, In
corporated in New Jersey in 1898, has
$16,290,475 of capital, and Its net prof
Its In 1910 were $2,441,844. Lyman
R. Hopkins, president, testifying in
1901 before the United States Indus-'
trial commission, said that the money
to buy up the fourteen concerns in
cluded in the New Jersey consolida
tion was furnished by the English
Sewing Cotton company. The thread
trust's principal competitor in this
country is the J. & P. Coates concern,
which maintains its English organiza
tion and English factories to manufac
ture thread for tho world, and Its
American factories to manufacture
thread for Americans in order to reap,
the extra profits from manufacturing
within the American tariff wall.
As far back as 1901 the thread trust,
according to its president, was em
ploying "one-quarter to one third" ot
foreign labor. Recent Industrial In
vestigations have dlsclosod that the
proportion In New England textile
Industries Is now nearer four foreign
ers to one American.
Here we have "protection" for for,
elgn capital and for foreign labor at
tho expense of every sewing woman,
every houuehohlor, every man, wom
an and child in the United States. !
