riched at Expense of the Many,
Following is the greater part of un
addxesa mndo before the Commercial
elnb of Boston by Hod. IX S. Filigree,
governor of Michigan. It is reproduced
from the May Arena:
Tbe general situation remind me of
a keeper of a boarding bouse who bod a
colored gentleman aa a boarder who
wm afflicted with aa empty pocketbook.
He called him on tbe carpet one day
and told him bo couldn't board him any
longer. Tbe boarder asked him why,
and tbe landlord replied tbat he couldn't
afford it. "Well," aaid thedarky, "why
the debbil don't you sell out to Home
body tbat can?" I am aorry to aay there
are too many people in thia portion to
day, Wealth can be produced in bat
one way it must como from the appli
cation "of human labor to the bounties
of nature. Wealth must come from tbe
foil of the earth or from thing valuuble
foand in the earth. National wealth ia
ao produced, in tbia respect thia coun
try baa been fortunate. Nature, on
. touched by man 'a banda, bad the boun
tooua atoroi for our increasing popula
tion. The noil waa fertile, and the tiiinea
of coal, iron and mineral were aa oiigl
nally formed.
Our population waa recruited from
that claaa in Europo which waa uaed to
labor and eager under the new condi
tion! in which they found thcinaelvea to
work faithfully. For a long aerie of
year thia country gained Immensely in
wealth. In tho 80 year from 1800 to
1890 tbe per capita valuation Increased,
in round number, front $300 per person
to over $1,000 per peraon.
Our mauufactoriea incrcaacd yearly,
But for manufucturea there ia needed
capital. We borrow from Europe a large
proportion of tho capital needed, upon
which and for otber purpoaea we pay
annually for iutcreat a sum of over V
000,000 in gold. Tbia cum ia absolutely
loat to ua aa a nation, and yet it sboub'
not be necessary for ua to borrow from
oilier than our own people.
Under the new condition of com
merce and niauufucturca co-ojarratlon ia
eaaentiut No one man bua sufficient
capitul to carry on tint large tntcrprisea
of today, Therefore co-operation baa bo
come tho order of tbe day, and wo have
corporation in which many contribute
each a amall amount. Hut the business
methoda of our corporation have been
o dishonest that our own people do not
fool aafe to invent their earning in
them. Our lawa are lax and encourage
diahoueaty. If people with amall wean
felt aufo to loan their money to or take
utock in corporation uud were properly
.protected by law from those ou tbo
ground floor, we should not bavo to bor
row in Europe, and thia tremeudou
mm could be kept at homo, it la in ter
cet that ia eating up tbo wealth of thia
nation. We all know what iutcreat can
da Had Columbu placed f 100 at in
terest at 4 per cent compounded aa in a
taring bank, the year be discovered
America, ha would today have been
able to draw hi check for f 58,000,000,
000, or almost tbe wealth of tbo United
States. With tl loaned at 6l per cent,
which per cent ia not unuauul hero in
Boaton, he could today have paid each
man, woman and child in tbe United
States about $14,000,
Tbe opportunities to amass Immense
fortuuea ly met hod not atrictly moral
have been m preat in the pant 20 yeara
tbat the posacKMinn of great wealth baa
become a mania with m, Our reputa
tion for honesty aa a nation ha Buffered
severely in Europe, and aa a couscqucuco
theychargo tia more for money and the
interest upon what money we borrow i
.greater than it should bo. Yet ua a na
tion we are not diHhoucMt. A limited
number have been permitted to piny
duck and drakea with our credit and
have becoino tlangeroualy wealthy, for
a wealthy man with no moral principle
i a dangerous man in the state. We
have a few of that kind in Detroit
men who want valuable franchises for
nothing and whoso entire time ia occu
pied in bribing and corrupting aldermen
and city officials to give them some
thing which belongs to the people aud

It ia said that what this country noed
is confidence. I agree with this. Tho
country needs confidence in tho business
method of our large concerns, and
money to carry them on will soou be
forthcoming. The best place to begin to
build up confidence in u a a nation ia
to begin to reform our municipal gov
truuient. Honesty must be our motto,

Perhaps this is a part cf the so called
progress cf a nation. But if tbe United
State keeps on in this line of evolution,
or rather of retrogression, we may in
time return to our original happy condi
tion of indifference to boots and shoes.
I say in all seriousness that public ex
penditure is severely felt. Our price
may fluctuate, but taxation ia steadfast.
The condition of the farmers of the went
is not good. When I see the prices of
farms fall, I begin to think of working
down tbe price of boots and shoe. I
wish that I had the power at tbe same
time to work down public expenditure.
But large bodiea must move slowly, and
of all large bodiea the great body of tax
eatera is the slowest to respond to pres
sure and at the same time tbe quickest
to respond to tho dinner born. Were
trade and taxation a double thermom
eter you would see trade boot and
shoes inclusive -at the zero point while
taxation is still at 00 degree in the
shade. If you are not foolish, do not
talk of economy to the friend of the
wealthy man, and do not mention sal
aries in the presence of official or of
doctor of divinity unleaa yon mean to
raise them.
I eay to you men of Boston tbat
trade' customers must be taxed only
in due proportion to their earnings.
You have a wise man here in tbe east
who aay tbat railroad should be taxed
only upon gross earnings. Thia means j
that the railroad tax should take a slid-!
ing scale in proportion to the volume of .
business. I accept it, but I would apply i
the method to all His rule baa been in
force in Michigan for many years.
There tbe railroad have been taxed and
are still taxed upon grow earning, and
with thia result: Tbe farmers, the
produeera of Michigan, have puid four
timea their proportion of taxation com
pared with the railroads. The farmers
have no sliding scale. These farmers are
the customers of the manufacturers, and
tbe unequal tax restricts our market. 1
always like to see my customer in good
financial condition.
I am obliged to throw one grave
doubt upon tho gross earning system of
taxation. Under this system the rail
road assess themselves. The assessor
can find out what a farmer owns, but
he cannot verify the reported gross
earnings of a railroad. I do not know
but that Charles Francis Adams is
right, but Mr. Adams' conclusions differ !
from ttiv own fliru-rtetifn Tlinv rull tun I
that Mr. Adams is an advocate of the
taxation of the gross earnings of rail
roads aa a system, and 1 am surprised
that anybody in the eaat advocates an
income tax, for a tax on gross earnings
is an income tax. I suppose, however,
that everybody would bo satisfied with
an income tax, aa the railroads of Mich
igan ore, providing that, like those rail
roads, they bad no other tax to pay, and
that the bulk of taxation was tbs shifted
upon others.
Aailroads are not anxiou to show
their books. I tried ouo time to get the
street railroads of Detroit to show up.
I told them that, if they gave mo free
access to their books in order to ascer
tain tbe cost of construction, cost of
rolling stock, cost of maintenance and
cost of operation, I would allow any
rate of fare for a generou profit. They
refused, I then asked the circuit court
to oblige them to show up, und tho
court refused,'' I take tbe position that
the public ore partners in all systems of
transportation und aa partners have a
right to know all. Transportation is not
a private business by any means,
If the gross earnings system is right
for railroads, it ought to be right for all
cIuhmcs. If tho gross earnings of rail
roads are (tccepted without investiga
tion, as they alwaya havo been, then
whatever tho farmer say bis gross earn
ings may be must bo accepted with
like trustfulness. But this is uot busi
ness, aud wo all know it. Tho only way
is to assess all alike aud under some
equitable method. All I waut to do
with transportation in Michigan iu the
way of taxation is to have it pay its
hare iu due proportion to values. I
want to seo fair play for my customers,
and incidentally for yours.
I dure aay yon havo read of tbo wild
lushing of railroads by your humble
servant in tho way of ratea of faro.
Here toe the fucts in brief: In Michigan
for many years somo of the roads huve
been opcruting under what is called the
general railroad act, .other under old
sjiooial churter. Home, under tho gen
eral railroad act, aro confined to a faro
of 9 cents per mile. Those under tho old
special charter are taking I) cent per
mile, Thia condition of affairs existed
long before I expected to become gov
ernor. You may inquire if theso differ
ence were caused by density of popu
lation through which the vatious rail
road run, aud I answer, uot at all.
Tbo fact is, the Chicago aud Oraud
Trunk, whoso local fare aro 8 rents per
lnil", runs through lens population than
tho Michigan Central, whoso local fares
are 8 cent per mile. The president of
the MJchlguu Central soya that tf you
comparo tbe fare hi the densely popu
lated ciut with Michigan Central fare,
yoa will find that Iho Michigan Central
ia entitled to double the farw charged.
If that t there must U aomethiug

fourth of century ago sine the Mich
igan Central fare wo establU.ied, with
th con nl of tbe company, when ther

Tho fall in railroad passenger rates
aos not come down, how ver, with tho
all in other price. In 1865, when I
left Boston for Detroit, it cost me
19.2"), first class ticket Yesterday it
ost mo 617.65 to come here from D
Jroit, only about 8 per cent cheaper. A
pair of shoes which sold in 18G5 for
S Cr;CSpcSiZg
of 50 per eent. Tbe cheapening of ma
terial and labor which go into a pair of
shoes has not been greater than the
cheapening of material and labor which
go into the construction or maintenance
of a railroad. .Railroad rates are indi
rect taxes levied upon commerce, con
tributed by tbe many to enrich the few.
Just so long as the foolish capitalists of
the yist persist in buying watered
stock, jual so long will your customer
in tbo west remain too poor to buy your
manufactured goods, and I sincerely
trust that the time will soon arrive
when tho purchase of watered stock
will be regarded in the same light aa
highway robbery.
So positive am I that plain business
doe not enter into tbe conduct of rail
roads that I would venture to guarantee
the best returns on the stocks and bonds
of our Michigan railroads, even to the
present limit of watered stocks, if the
railroads were operated on half tbe
present rates. The earning capacity oi
tbe railroads of Michigan ia not baii
developed, in consequence of uwbusiuess
like charges and methods. Where the
earning capacity of railroads ianot fully
developed it ha an evil effect upon the
earnings of the state, aud as a conse
quence there aro less boots and shoe
worn. But all I am after in Michigan
is to proceed npon tho lines laid down
by the action of my predecessors'. I act
upon the principle that no business
shall get ahead of my business if I can
help it. I want all to have a fair share,
but I see where shrewd corporation
are getting more than their share. I do
not want to see my customers taxed
poor. I want to seo them wear more
boot and shoes, especially shoe. I
know I have tho sympathy of all manu
facturers except somo who ore getting a
bigger rako off by connection with some
unreasonably protected corporation.
Speaking r.bout protection puts me in
mind. Wo all want protection. But do
we get it, even when tho tariff is
raised? In order to got it we must watch
transportation rates. Under a decision
of the United States court we are partly
at the mercy of transportation. A case
was brought at New Orleans some timo
ago, and the facts as disclosed showed
that tho railroads carried boots and shoes
at different rates to San Francisco. For
boots and shoes and other merchandise
manufactured at New Orleans or sold by
Jobber there the rate to Sun Francisco
was $3.07 per hundred, but for im
ported boot and shoes and other mer
chandise of similar class the rate was
$1.07. Tho supremo court sustained this
method of transportation. I do not know
tbe reasons for it. I do not care to know
them. My care is to point Out tbut the
principle or expedient of national pro
tection is defeated In part by the de
cision. But if there 1 to be internation
al reciprocity of rate of transportation
wo ought to know something of it, and
o should congress, to regulate it proper
ly. We have abolished the lottery and
we are engaged in stamping out tho
common kind of gambling, but tho
higher form of gambling are un
touched. Taxation must be placed on those
who can bear it or there is an end to
successful business. Our customers nro
loaded down with taxation. From ex
tortionate rates of fares, freights and
charges of all kinds, computed by the
companies, down to the oleomargarine
spread on bread, tho evil descends, in
creasing as it goes iu an enormous bur
don of excessive indirect taxation, and
tbe far greater share of such taxation
goes to tho increased concentration of
private wealth aud not to tho public
benefit. Tho tariff operates to tho man
ufacture of consumers. We have a land
that can fully support at least ten times
tho present population. Iu tho interest
of manufacturers I say that sound busi
ness should not be silent in tlie face of
gambling methods.' Manufacturers,
should bo active as agniust tho imposi
tion of unjust taxation, either direct or
indirect, upon their customers. All of
our higher political efforts havo been
along tho line of tho manufacture of
consumers, but we have stood idly by
when those consumers have been fleeced
by stock and bond jobbing. Wo havo
stood idly by when transportation has
levied blackmail and when state legis
lature have imposed excessive rates oi
fores and freights and when common
councils of cities havo been parties to
open robbery of tbo men and women
who aro our customers uud wbeu wealth
escaped taxation.

There is probably no one better known
in Sedalia, especially among the mem
bers of the Firnt Baptist church, than
Mrs. Wollie b. lloe, the wife of Mr. Hoe.
the nurseryman, and nothing is better
known among the ladv's acquaintances,
than that for t lie past four year she
has been a physical wreck from locomo
tor ataxia, in its severest form. That
she has recently recovered her health.
strength and normal locomotion has
been made apparent by her being nm-n
frequently on the streets and in church.
and this fact induced a representative of
the Uipital to call on Mrs. Koe to in
quire into the circumstances of her re
markable recovery. Mrs. Roe was seen
at her bouse at the corner of Ohio Ave
Due and Twenty-fourth street and
seemed only too glad to give the follow
ing nixtory of her caxs for publication
"Four years ago," she said, "I was

Tbe moat eminent physicians were con
sulted but they gave me no relief, and I
was without hope, and would have
prayed for death out for the thought of
leaving my little children. All thought
of recovery had gone, and it was only
looked upon as a question of time by my
husband aud mends when my troubles
would end in the grave.
''One day while in this condition I re.
celved a newspaper from soiiih friends in
Denver with a news item marked, and
while Ireading it my eyes fell upon an ac
count of a remarkable curs for locomo
tor ataxia by the use of Dr. Williams'
l'ink 1'ilis for rule People, and the case
as described waa exactly similar to my
own. 1 at once made up my mind to
try the remedy, and began according to
directions to take the pills. The
first box had not gone when 1 experi
enced a marked improvement, and as 1
continued I grew better and better until
1 waa totally cured, 1 took about four
boxes in all, and after two years of tbe
most bitter suffering was us well as I
ever was. ot only my leeiings but my
appearance underwent n change. I
gained llesh, and though now forty-three
