Dkar Sirs : Eight months ago I bought the sctubbiest pig I could find in my
locality and made a special test of "International Stock Food." I wanted to see
just what it would do for hogs. This little runt was eight months old and weighed
ten pounds, and was the worst looking specimen of a runt you ever saw. The other
hogs of the same litter were ready for market and weighed about three liundr2d
pounds. I put this runt in a pen by herself and fed ''International Stock Food' as
directed, and at the end of eight months I killed her and she dressed 500 lbs. I have
handled "International Stock Food" for over 7 years and never had a package
returned, and can say that your preparations speak for themselves in our com

Special Correspondence.) The sen
ile has passed the oleomargarine bill
ri.-; 3-eported from the house and the
discussion of the Chinese exclusion
measure is now in progress. Without
question, the Mitchell-Kahn bill. which
extends the time of operation of the
C-eary act, will be passed, but it Is
meeting much opposition from the
protected manufacturing interests of
the country who see in a great influx
of cheap pauper labor much benefit to
The "infant industries" that wax
and grow fat by reason of the protec
tive tariff legislation of the republican
party express much concern lest their
business be destroyed by the impor
tation of foreign manufactures, but
are singularly silent as to the question
of an influx of cheap foreign labor.
According to trust philosophy, an
American manufacturer that can un
dersell his foreign competitor both in
foreign and domestic markets needs
the protection of a prohibitive tariff
against the competition of the foreign
: r-nufacturer. yet the American la
! r,,-or whose skill enables his employer
to win the world's markets needs no
protection against the pauper labor
of Tie old world.
In this connection, a reproduction of
an editorial which I clipped from a
retort issue of The Critic, published
in Manila. P. I., will b? interesting:
"The Chinese exclusion bill which
th-? Pacific Coast representatives have
agreed to support is a direct menace
to tbo very best interests of the Phi!
inpine islands and if it should pass
would render well-nigh impossible the
exploitation of these islands by the
Americans and would cause an irre
trievable loss of much capital now in
the archipelago. The bill denies the
right of entry to the Chinese not only
into the mainland ports of the United
States, but also into any of the in
sular possessions, including the Phil
ippines. The cumulative evidence of
many years proves that the native
labor is not to be depended upon. If
the business of the archipelago be de
veloped as it can be, and ought to be,
the services of the Chino are absolute
ly necessary. It is to be hoped that
the memorial of the American cham
ber of commerce and the recommenda
tion of the commission will raise up
some friends for the Philippines in
congress. It is late to contemplate the
idea, probably, but an authorized dele
gation of business men in Washing
ton would be very valuable just now."
This editorial is interesting for two
reasons: First, as showing the ten
dency of capitalistic interests to op
pose the re-enactment of anti-Chinese
laws and their support of lax immi
gration measures; and, second, that
the evident purpose of capital is to
exploit the Philippine islands for the
money there is in it, without regard
to the equities of the case. Chinese
labor will enable them to do this on a
cheaper scale, hence the opposition to
the Chinese exclusion law.
The republican majority in congress
is so allied with corporation interests
that the Mitchell-Kahn bill would be
defeated by them, did the individual
members dare to face the wrath of the
voters at home.
The American people are learning
many things about thi3 Philippine bus
iness that seems to affect them but
little, yet years ago the publication
of the details would have stirred the
country from center to circumference.
As the poet says of vice:
"We first pity, then endure, then
A late development of the situation
is emphasized by the innumerable pe
titions before congress protesting
against government licensing of the
social evil in Manila. The American
flag has become the sign of the bawdy
house keeper, as familiar as the "three
balls" of the pawnbroker or the red
flag of the auctioneer. It has been
the practice for medical examinations
of prostitutes in the Philippines to be
conducted under supervision of United
States officers, but the protest against
this was so strong from the people at
home that (Secretary Root cabled a
modifying order to General Wright
at Manila. The message is dated at
Washington, February 19, and is as
"Wright, Manila. It Is considered
advisable that upon medical examina
tion of prostitutes no fees be charged
and no certificates of examination
given. Medical officers can keep their
own records of name3, descriptions,
residences and dates of examination,
and it is believed that the necessary
protection against disease can in a
great measure be secured in this way
without the liability of a misunder
standing and the charge of maintain
ing a system of licensed prostitution.
In 1896. the republican party made
the American flag, plastered over with
republican portraits, the badge of "na
tional honor." In 1902. after five years
of republican rule, the American flag
is the badge of dishonor and the pro
tection of the prostitute in the Phil
ippines! I have had occasion several times
to call attention to the similarity of
the warfare waged by the United Stat
es in the Philippines and by Great
Britain in South Africa by compari
son of official dispatches dealing with
the situation. In the last national
campaign, Rudyard Kipling's poetry
was made to do service for republican
campaign thunder. In fact. I believe
I am safe in calling the English rhym
ster the poet laureate of the g. o. p.
This being true. I submit that, to re
publicans at least, Kipling ought to
be good authority. In a letter under
recent date he says:
"All you say about the Philippines,
the conflict there between the Ameri
cans, military and civil, and the pig
headedness of the military and their
habit of setting 'bulldogs to catch
rabbits.' is immensely cheering to me.
because it is precisely what we are
doing in South Africa.
"You cannot persuade a big coun
try full of prosperity that it does not
know everything. When it has lost a
few thousand sons and a few thousand
millions sterling, it may, if unusual
ly enlightened, begin to understand
that it has tuken hold of the wrong
end of the stick. But that is a great
deal to hope for, and probably will
not come in our time.

I believe the American people are
entitled to all the information they
can get on this question of imperial
ism, and that, with full information,
they will finally come to a realization
of its horrors and dangers.
Filipinos are not the only sufferers
from the administration's Philippine
policy. Many of our own troops are
at the mercy of tyrants, as the follow
ing extract from a private letter writ
ten by Corporal H. W. Perry, Co. C,
13th infantry, to Miss Emma Carter.

"Last week in one of the southern
provinces, a young soldier was killed
by his company's commander. It was
pay day, and the young man was in
the prison with some other boys. They
were talking in a loud manner, having
been drinking something or other.
"The lieutenant heard them and told
them to be quiet, but this order they
disobeyed, whereupon the lieutenant
returned and ordered the sergeant of
the guard to bring one of the young
men outside and bind and gag h'm.
"Not satisfied with this, he ordered
the sergeant to bring him a bucket of
water, ice cold. This done, the lieu
tenant began1 to drop the water on
the helpless soldier, drop by drop.
"This finally choked the boy, but
the lieutenant continued his barbar
ous treatment until the boy began to
bleed at ears,1 nostrils, and mouth.
The lieutenant then began to realize
that things were coming to a crisis,
so he ordered the boy released from
the ropes and gag, but it was too late.
He had gone to another land and had
passed all earthly torments.
"A day or so afterward his com
rades bore him to his last resting
place, where the last rites of a soldier
were administered and 'taps,' the
sweetest of all bugle notes, were
sounded. This call always puts me
in mind of that song. 'When the roll
is called up yonder I'll be there.' "
History fails to record instances of
greater brutality even under monarch
ical governments.
In contradistinction to a policy har
boring such un-American practices,
the democratic members of the sen
ate committee on the Philippines have
formally agreed upon a substitute for
the Philippines government. This sub
stitute is in harmony with the last na
tional democratic and populist plat
forms, and is as follows:
"It provides that subject to provi
sions, which are set forth, the United
States shall relinquish all claim of
sovereignty over the Philippine archi
pelago,, but that the United States
shall continue to occupy and govern
the archipelago until the people there
of shall have established a govern
ment, and until sufficient guarantees
have been obtained for the perform
ance of our treaty obligations with
Spain and for the safety of those in
habitants who have adhered to the
United States and for the maintenance
and protection of all rights which have
accrued under the authority thereof.
"A constitutional convention is pro
vided for, the members of which are
to be elected by voters who speak and
write English, Spanish or any of the
languages of the archipelago. This
convention is to number three hun
dred persons, and is to meet in Manila
not more than a year from the cessa
tion of hostilities in the islands.
"This convention is to proceed to
form a constitution and organize such
government as it may deem best
adapted to promote the welfare and
secure the peace and happiness of the
Inhabitants of said islands, provided
that said convention shall provide by
an ordinance, irrevocable without the
consent of the United States.
"First, that there shall belong to
the United States and continue to be
the property thereof such lands and
waters as the president of the United
States shall designate to the said con
vention for naval, military and coal
ing stations and terminal facilities for
submarine cables, the same to con
tinue under the control and sover
eignty of tlfe United States.
"Second, to carry into effect the
treaty obligations of the United States
with the kingdom of Spain and for
the maintenance and protection of all
rights and property acquired under the
authority of the United States.
"Third, that no inhabitant of said
archipelago shall ever be molested in
person or property on account of his
or her adherence to the United States.
pendence of the people of the archi
pelago. "The president is also authorized
and requested to negotiate an agree
ment between the United States, the
Philippine archipelago and Great
Britain, Germany, France and such
other powers as he may deem best,
providing for the perpetual neutral
ity and inviolability from all foreign
interference with the territory of the
archipelago and also for equal oppor
tunities of trade between the archipel
ago and foreign countries.
Full amnesty is granted to all the
inhabitants of the islands on account
of political offenses and the bearing
of arms against the United States.
"Within sixty days from the election
of officers under the Philippine consti
tution and their inauguration, the
president is to cause the armed forces
of the United States to be withdrawn
from the archipelago as speedily as
possible." II. W. RISLEY.
Incredible Amount of Money Lost by
the Working Classes
The money lost annually by skille-1
workmen of all occupations figures up
to millions of dollars and is becom
ing greater every year. This amount
of money represents mainly time lost
and the serious effect upon the social
comfort of the workingmen and their
families is evident. Mr. George V.
Hammond, of No. 610 N. State street,
Tacoma, Wash., said the other day: -
"I have lost my share of time, but
I. am thankful to say that I have not
been losing any of late."'
"You don't look as if you had lost
much through sickness."
"No, and I don't feel so. But the
fact remains that I was a very sick
man. I took cold along in 18S9 and
rheumatism settled in my arms and
shoulders. I suffered for three years
and nothing relieved me until in April,
1892, I began to use Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Pale People, and found re
lief in the second box. I took five
boxes in all and now am entirely
cured and have had no occasion to use
them since."
There is a popular idea that rheu
matism is caused by exposure to cold
and that some localities are infected
with it more than others. Such con
ditions frequently promote the de
velopment of the disease, but. from
the fact that rheumatism runs in cer
tain families, it is shown to be hered
itary and consequently a disease of
the blood.
Frequently an individual, in whose
family rheumatism has not occurred,
develops the disease, and when a
diagnosis of the case is made, it Is
generally found that the ailment is
due to a derangement of the blood.
External applications may afford
temporary relief, but to cuie the dis
ease it is necessary to treat it through
the blood.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale
People go directly to the seat of the
disorder, purifying and enriching the
blood by eliminating poisonous ele
ments and renewing health-giving
forces. They are a positive specific
not only for rheumatism, but for all
diseases 'arising from poor blood or
weakened nerves. They are sold at
fifty cents a box or six boxes for two
dollars and a half and may be had of
all druggists or direct by mail from

The Interstate Commerce Commission
Gor a Long Way on tUe Road to Pop
ulism but Stops Short of
The manufacturers and merchants
have long been the most bitter and
persistent opponents of the populist
party. They have fought it, constant
ly and persistently and have voted the
republican ticket as often as they had
a chance. They have derided the prin
ciples and maligned the leaders of the
party. Now they are forming associa
tions to protect themselves from rail
road extortions and discriminations,
whereas the evils of which they com
plain would all have been prevented
if they had adopted populist prin
ciples and helped the party to gain
power. These railroad extortions and
discriminations have become so intol
erable that the merchants of several
states have organized associations to
protect themselves. There is such an
organization in the state of Illinois
and at a recent meeting they invited
the most distinguished man on the in
terstate commerce commission to ad
dress the. The address of the speaker,
Mr. Prouty. was an astonishment to
them. He started out stating the
same facts so often printed in The
ers of this paper are very familiar. He
"You cannot secure satisfactory rail
way competition by law. You may
compel it in spots and spasms. You
may secure it upon the surface, but
actual, effective competition, competi
tion which competes, will soon be a
thing of the past in the railway world.
The quicker we appreciate this fac
the better shall we' deal with the
One would have thought that after
making that statement, which has
been made scores of times In The In
dependent, that he would have taken
the next plainly logical step and told
these merchants and manufacturers
that competition being out of the ques
tion, the only recourse would be gov
ernment ownership, but he did noth
ing of the kind. He said:
"The railway is a public servant.
Its rates are subject to public regula
tion. The government not only may,
but should, compel the charging of
just and reasonable tariffs. That rem
edy is perfectly . adequate, perfectly
just and perfectly capable of applica
tion." Instead of that remedy being "per
fectly adequate" the truth is that af
ter fifty years of trial, by both state
and national governments, it has
proved to be a perfect failure. The
citizens of Nebraska know what a
failure it has been in this state and
in other states it has proved even
more inadequate.
But Mr. Prouty is evidently an hon
est man. Strange as it may seem he
believes in his remedy and the only
way that he will he convinced that it
is no remedy at all, is to let him try it
a while longer.
A New York paper recently said
that the accumulations of great for
tunes out of railroads was long passed.
Mr. Prouty gave some facts that show
such statements are utterly unfounded.
A little knowledge of facts shows how
fortunes of hundreds of millions have
been accumulated in the last six years
by the manipulations of railroad oper
ators, assisted as they were by the
bankers' panic of 1893, which was pre
cipitated for just such purposes. In
regard to this Mr. Prouty said:
"In March. 1897, Northern Pacific
common was worth ?12 a share; it is
now worth something over par, an ad
vance upon $80,000,000 of stock of $72,
000,000. At the same time Northern
Pacific preferred sold for $35 a share.
That is now worth par, an increase
upon the $75,000,000 of stock of nearly
$50,000,000. Great Northern in 1897
was capitalized for $40,000,000, and was
worth substantially $48,000,000 upon a
market value of $120. It is now capi
talized for $100,000,000 and sells at
$180. an addition of about $132,000,000.
"Burlington sold for $72 a share.
That has been retired upon a basis of
$200, an advance of $128,000,000. mak
ing in all a grand total of almost $400,
000,000 enough money to build and
equip two lines of railroad from the
head of Lake Superior to the Pacific
coast. About how long before the
public is to taste the magnanimity of
Mr. Hill?"
As long as railroads have been in
existence these sort of things have oc
curred and they will continue to occur
as long as the roads are owned by
private parties. It is a very easy
thing to do when you know how. Let
the banks control the volume of money
and they can bring on a panic at any
time. Then the roads go into a receiv
er's hands, stocks become of little
value, a reorganization takes place,
the volume of money is suddenly in
flated, times begin to boom, the new
stock doubles in value and, presto,
you have some more multi-millionaires.
The populists have often told the
merchants and manufacturers what
was in store for them and that the
time would come when they would he
more radical antagonists of the rail
roads than ever the populists were.
They may continue for a while to
dream about controlling freight and
passenger rates by the government
with the railroads in private hands,
but at last they will have to come to
the populist plan of government own
ership of railroads and money to be
issued by the government only, with
out the intervention of banks. The
sooner that. they come to these con
clusions and go work to get them
into law. the sooner they will get re
lief from the evils of which they com
plain. If, however, they preter to
wade a while longer in the sloughs of
high rates and discrimination, dream
ing dreams that will never come to
pass, about the government regulat
ing rates, they have the right to do so.
Teh populists can only watch and wait
and suffer with them until they como
to their right minds.
Will Retire Two Hundred Millions of Pre
ferred Stock and Issue Ronds in
In Lieu
The steel trust is arranging its plans
for a final smash-up, and those who
hold its stocks, feeling insecure, have
demanded that $200,000,000 of pre
ferred stock be retired and instead of
this that $250,000,000 in bonds be is
sued. As the preferred stock bears
interest at 7 per cent and the bonds
will bear only 5. this will apparently
be an advantage to the holders of com
mon stock, inasmuch as it will leave
a larger portion of the net earnings to
be divided after paying dividends on
preferred stock and interest on the
bonds. But the real test will come
when the bondholders are obliged (or
claim they are) to foreclose their
mortgage and take the property. Then
the common stockholders will find
their holdings worthless.
At a recent meeting the directors of
the steel trust gave out a statement
of net earnings, which were arrived
at "after deducting each month the
cost of ordinary repairs, renewals and
maintenance of plants." These for th
year, ending March 31, 1902, amounted
to the enormous sum of $111,067,195.

showing $119,000 income, $2,000,000 of

any American company, all bills paid

The Nebraska Independent had an
advertisement in the Appeal recently.
It got many replies from Appeal read

The Independent had not intended
to mention the matter, but now that
Jlr. Wayland has opened the subject,
we'll talk to it. The Independent did
put an ad. in the Appeal for business
reasons to increase its circulation. It
was greatly disappointed in the Appeal
as an advertising medium. An ad. in
The Commoner, costing $28, brought
in 15 times as many replies as the
Appeal ad., for which we paid Mr.
Wayland $13.20. An ad. in the New
York World, costing $36. brought in
12 times as many replies. But that
does not matter; it is a closed inci

made that way. 1 .
The Independent admits thai it is
difficult to keep track of all the various

clined to be a little skeptical about
