A REAL GAOSE
OF HIGH PRICES
THE PURE FOOD LAW HAS HAD
BUT YOU GET WHAT YOU BUY
Formerly Prices Were Reduced by Re
storing to Adulteration and Misbranding -
branding But That Can't be Done
Any More The Real Article Costs.
Washington , July 8. "The congres
sional committee on the cost of liv
ing recently detailed fifteen reasons
for high cost of living and yet one of
the most important reasons for the
high prices was left out of their report -
port , " remarked Solicitor Mathews of
the department of agriculture today.
"The execution of the pure food law
has had an important effect on prices.
Formerly resort was had to adultera
tion and mlsbrandlng to reduce the
price of alleged articles. Now people
buy raspberry jam for Instance and
pay more for It but they get what
they pay for. So It is with many
other articles , in common use. "
A Violent Speech In Spain.
Madrid. July 8. Pablo Igleslas , the
socialist deputy to speak In the cortes ,

had precipitated disorders to stop the

T , R , TO MAKE SPEECH
He Will Speak in Indiana in Bever-
idge's Campaign for Election.
Oyster Bay , July 8. Albert J. Bev-
eridge , United States senator from In
diana and one of the most prominent
and most consistent of progressive
republicans , came down from Saga
more Hill yesterday afternoon with a
promise from Theodore Roosevelt to
deliver a campaign speech in his fight
for re-election to the senate. Mr. Bev-
erldge departed content and smiling ,
but he left it for the colonel to make
the announcement of the proposed
speech in the senator's behalf.
And this Is what Mr. Roosevelt
"Mr. Foulke and Mr. Swift came to
Sagamore Hill last night and spent
the night here. They came to request
me to go to Indiana and speak in be
half of Senator Beverldge. I promised
them that I would. "
He added that ho had agreed to
make only one speech for the senator
and as far as is now known , he will
make only one. The time and place
for this speech has not been announc
ed. Those who have followed the con
ferences at Oyster Bay since Colonel
Roosevelt returned share the belief
that he has been feeling his way cau-
tiously in his attitude toward the ad
ministration and the Insurgents , but
yesterday's incidents are considered
the most Important developments.
Senator Beverldgo Is making his fight
for re-election as an insurgent. He Is
opponed by John W. Kern , who ran
with Bryan In the last campaign.
In his fight the senator is placing
himself squarely against President
Taft , Insofar as the tariff figures. The
law which the president had defended
as the tariff measure ever Is denounc
ed by the senator and the same re
publican convention which endorsed
Boverldgo for another term virtually
repudiated the law.
In the senate Beverldge fought the
bill to the last and then voted against
It is pointed out , however , that with
this exception President Taft and the
senator from Indiana have come to
gether as far as administration poll
clos are concerned. There has been
no break between them. The presi
dent entrusted to the senator the con-
duct of two administration measures
at last session of congress the state-
hood bill nnd the Alaska government
bill. And although the senator work-
ed faithfully with the insurgent band
in the senate , and had a hand in the
alteration of President Taft's railroad

"State of Nebraska , Executive Of
fice , July 5 , 1910. Dear Mr. Smith : I
have your letter of recent date relative
to the condition of the Insane in the
county hospital of Douglas county. In
reply I will say that our state insti
tutions for the insane are very much
over-crowded at present. There has
been one building completed at Nor
folk , which has somewhat relieved the
situation there , and another Is being
completed , I understand , at Hastings.
"Every one of our Institutions are
crowded beyond measure , and It seems
as though the state Is confronted with
the fact that these unfortunate people
are constantly Increasing In numbers
that must be cared for by the state.
"I will endeavor at once to relieve
the situation as much as I ran favor
you. I provided for a place for Miss
Peterson at Norfolk , as you state In
your letter , after earnest solicitation
that the superintendent find a place
for her , In some way. I have also se
cured an opening here for n man from
your county. The two that you men

charge of In some of the Institutions.
