SUGAR TRUST SCANDALS OF '92.
The campaign of 1892 resulted in
Mr. Cleveland's election. It was cer
tain, long in advance, that if Cleve
land won there would be t a rill' revi
sion. The sugar trust did not care
about tarifl' revision in general, if it
could only make the sugar schedule to
suit itself. The trust, to make assur
ance doubly sure, contributed liberally
to both campaign funds that year. The
contribution to the democratic fund
has always been popularly placed at
one-half million dollars. That contri
bution was the price of the privilege of
"fixing" the sugar schedule to suit the
trust, if the democrats should win.
The big contribution to the republican
fund was payment in advance for the
same privilege if the republicans
should win. You may see that Mr.
Havemeyer was thoroughly nonpar
tisan. Well, the democrats won, and con
gress met to revise the tarili. It soon
came out that powerful forces were
insisting on a duty on sugar. The
trust wauted it just as high as possi
ble. There was a tremendous roar of
protest from the country, but the big
democratic Kliticiaus who had raised
the campaign fuud stood by the trust,
and in the end they won. A duty of
40 per cent ad valorem was imposed,
and the wicked Dutch standard whs
retained in the law.
Henry O. Havemeyer, head of the
trust, and a fine entourage of lobbyists
and manipulators, made headquarters
at the Arlington hotel in Washington.
The sugar schedule was the pivot of
the whole situation. Senator Ciormuu,
chairman of the democratic national
committee, flatly declared there could
be uo legislation unless tne sugar
schedule was "right," which meant
unless it was satisfactory to the trust.
The scandals became so serious that
at length the senate was actually
forced to investigate itself. The charge
was made that senators friendly to the
trust were making big money specu
lating in trust stocks. Senator Lodge
introduced a resolution demanding the
investigation. A committee was ap
pointed with Lodge as chairmau. It
took testimony that filled over one
thousand pages, and examined every
member of the senate.
There was a New York broker in
the Havemeyer menage at the Arling
ton that busy season, whose business
was receiving and placing orders for
sugar securities so it was auegeu.
This broker E. H. Chapman by
tame was summoned and declined
to produce his books to show his trans
actions for senators. Two Washing
ton newspaper men, John S. Sh river
and Klisha J. Edwards, who had
printed articles charging scandalous
things in the relations of the sugar
lobby to statesmen, were examined,
aud refused to tell their sources of
information. Henry Havemever was
likewise recalcitrant; he would answer
no questions that might involve him
self or public men.
Proceedings were brought for con
tempt against these unwilling witnesses.
Havemeyer and the newspaper men
were held by the supreme court of the
District of Columbia to be within their
rights in refusing to testify, and were
set free. Chapman was held guilty of
contempt and went to jail for two
months; but he did uot tell anything.
And that was thenet result of a very
solemn looking effort to gel at the in
wardness of the most scandal-fogged
tariff performance that Washington
ever saw! The trust got the tariff
"fixed" as it wanted; a few senators
admitted dealing in trust stocks; a
broker was locked up for a short time,
and President Cleveland, declariug it
was "perfidy and dishonor," refused to
sign the tariff act, which became law
without his signature.
Out of all that scandal the sugar
trust made profits of millions by rush
ing in vast stores of sugar while it was
still free of duty, to be refined and sold
with tiie tariff added after the new law
was in effect. That is the trust meth

THE LIGHT OF PROGRESS.
Whether the insurgents are indebt
ed to the democratic party for their
"policies" is a matter of dispute. Mr.
Bryan very positively asserted during
the last presidential campaign that the
democratic party had contributed to
the cause of reform all that was good.
I The contention will be maintained
while Mr. Bryan remains the acknowl
edged head of the democratic organi
zation. A matter of some local interest is
involved in the defense offered by an
insurgent newspaper that claims to be
acquainted with all shades of politics.
It had its start in life by being intense
ly democratic It came into local
power on the heels of revolt against
prohibition and availed itself of the
opportunities delicately brought into
controversy by Mayor Sears, who is a
democrat still. This neighbor of the
press is now rambunctious in the busi
ness of saving the republican party
from its friends, and it resents with old
time vigor the association .f democra
tic policies in the purity of its new life.
Incidentally there is explanation, or
what may pass as such, of why it
ceased to uphold the democratic stand
ard. "In 1892," it is explained, "the de
mocratic convention called for the
elimination of protection, but in 1894
its congress gave the country a tariff
averaging in its rates but about 10 per
cent less than were those of the Mc
Kinley tariff. And, in 1890, instead
of sticking to the text on which the
party had achieved power since the
civil war, we find the platform posi
tioning the tariff until the money ques
tion was settled." The point is made
with characteristic perspicuity.
The democratic party, to be sure,
was not in good position, after the act
of 1894, to continue the tariff as a par
amount issue, but fault is found with
it for avoidance of another fight for the
elimination of protection under the
terms of the national platform of 1892.
Whatever dislike was felt to the
money question as presented by Mr.
Bryan's party in 1890, the lasting re
sentment of this near friend lodged in
the abandonment of the democratic
party of its hot contention for the eli
mination of protection. Therefore
speaking of principle the movement
terminated for the time being in pre
The democratic- platform of 1892, it
will be remembered, denounced repub
lican protection as a "fraud a rob
bery," and things like that. It saw in
the McKiuley law "the culmiuating
atrocity of class legislation," and the
party set about, in lauguage, to turn
everything topsyturvy. Such success
resulted, accompanied by a high meas
ure of distress, that the republican
party was returned to power at the
first opportunity, followed by a period
of prosperity not yet terminated.
Being a director iu the insurgent
combination, having the favor of the
leaders, aud a owerful opposition to
Cannouism back of it, the time, may
not lie distant when the Chicago plat
form of 1892 will be offered for reaffir
mation in the name of fearless progress.

TAFT'S DIFFICULT POSITION.
President Taft stands between two
fires. One element iu congress thiuks
he is too radical. The other element
thinks he is not radical enough. Yet,
if the present administration is to
secure any legislation or accomplish
anything he must do it with the mate
rial at hand the present congress.
He cauuot secure legislation by oppos
ing the regular organization. Neither
can he accomplish anything if he has
the active oposition of the insurgent
republicans, for they have demonstrat
ed their ability to secure a majority by
uniting with the democrats. The
democrats cannot be expected to do
anything that would assist the repub
lican president or add to his jiopular
ily. This being the case, Mr. Taft
must adopt a middle course, such as
will secure the support of both regu
lars and insurgents, or he will fail to
secure auy legislation. And if he fails,
if the party fails, to adopt some meas
ures that the people ask for the party
will go to the demnition bow wows and
Mr. Taft will be a discredited presi
dent Republicans should realize the
peculiar, the embaraasing, the difficult
position iu which he is placed, and
give him their united support and
eucouragement. We all have reason
to believe that his heart is in the right
place, and that he is an advocate of
and a believer in the Roosevelt policies.
Every word of his public utterances,
save possibly on. the tariff has met
with popular approval. Then, why
don't the republicans give him credit
for being right aud give him cordial
support? It might tickle some of us
to see Taft go after congress with a
club.but he probably would not accom
plish anything that way. He prob
ably knows best how to manage the
unruly bunch on his hands. Let's

BRYAN, MORAL CRUSADER.. .
The position of Mr. Bryan on the
county option question continues to be
the one interesting feature of the poli
tical situation and will be to the end
of the next campaign if he asserts him
self. His declaration for making the
county the unit of action with respect
to the control of liquor is playing hav
oc with his party in Nebraska and of
necessity modifies the republican stat
us. We cannot say what motives have
actuated him. We do not known the
impulses that have moved him. We
are pretty well assured, however, that
he is in dead earnest, now that the die
is cast He has taken the step not
without counting the cost He has
held in anticipation certain dim re
sults. He has said it was certain to
alienate very many warm political
supporters during his entire public ca
reer. He has said it might even mean
the burning of the room over bis head
or the penalty of his life. Ordinarily
such expressions would give the idea
of great moral of personal heroism.
Iu the espousal of other questions
Mr. Bryan has been persistent and
courageous. It was so especially with
respect to the silver question. After
suffering one overwhelming defeat on

form a second time when its obtrusion
was clearly adverse to his aud his par
It may lie that when he returns from
South America he will repeat the pro
gramme he followed upon his return
from his tour of the world. Then he
proclaimed the government ownership
of railroads only to recant soon after
wards. Maybe when he comes back
from the south and finds his party all
battered and disrupted he will revise
his county option proclamation.
The probabilities of this are streng
thened by the fact that he lias always
been very considerate of the liquor
vote. The selection of Harry Hay

BRYAN'S LATEST ISSUE.
If experience is much of a teacher
it may be safely assumed that Wm.
Jennings Bryan can't be elected presi
dent He continues, however, to cut
the widest swath in the democratic
party, making it apparent that no
other democrat stands much of a show
without Bryan's support. Therefore
the lucky republicans find solace for
their own wounds received iu party
insurrection, in Bryan's latest issue,
which doesn't seem popular with his
party. As is well known, Bryan is a
total abstainer; he not only doesn't
drink, but he doesn't use the "filthy
weed." But heretofore he has re
mained silent concerning the booze
question regarding it as purely local,
and not a matter of concern for
one engaged in shaping national affairs.
As a local matter he still treats it,
perhajM, as he has merely spoken iu
favor of local option in Nebraska.
But democratic papers throughout the
country are taking it up, aud that
without much approval. Aud all this
may hurt the chances of Bryan as
being the leader in 1912, but it hurls
the democratic party more, particu
larly if Bryan cares to maintain that
leadership. Whatever is Bryan's
hoodoo, it is difficult to separate it
from democracy, and the lucky re
publicans are lucky still. Atchisou
TAFT'S ONE FAULT.
Not only the press and the magazines
but private individuals, have already
pronounced their verdict upon the Taft

and are prophesying a return from
Elba. Was there ever anything more
ridiculous? For our own part we have
discovered only one defect in the pre
sident's makeup that we are sure about.
It may be a fatal one. He is a mighty
poor politician; :tnd hesutfeis particul
arly in this resjiect iu comparison with
his predecessor who was (aud is) a
past master. Taft has uo aptitude for
the pcrsoual intricacies of the machine.
As he says himself, lie hates the fact
that three or four hours are taken up
every morning at the White House
"iu discussing not the qualifications of
collectors and district attorneys and
other aptoiutees. but the claims of
those who recommend that the gentle
men lie apMiinted." But success at
White House is not always a matter
of playing (lolitics; if it were, Taft
would have a poor chance. Let us
wait before wc turn our thumbs down.
BEANS IN BOSTON.
Millions of Quarts That Are An
nually Baked and Eaten.
Boston baked beans arc known
around the globe. In the city of Boa
ton alone about 32,000,000 quarts of
baked beans are devoured annually, to
ay nothing of the pork that goes with
them and the brown bread that is also
served. There are factories or baker
ies which handle nothing but baked
beans from oue year's end to the other.
One of the largest of these, which sup
plies restaurants wholly, bakes 14.U00
quarts of beans a week. Other baker
ies also ' furnish brown bread, while
nearly every bakeshop that makes
bread, pastry aud pies also bakes
beans several times a week. There
are bakeries with ovens that will hold
2,000 quarts each.
The preparation aud baking of beans
are interestiii!; operations. In estab
lishments where beans only are baked
It is done on a huge scale. There are
great kettles that hold two or three
bushels of beans, aud into these the
beans are put to soak and parboil.
Then the pots of earthenware, varying
in size from one quart to two gallous,
are ranged around 011 tables and i.Iletl
from the big keltles. Every quart of
beans Is carefully picked over and
sorted and eh ied of all dirt and dead
beans before being put into the kettles.
The ovens are huge brick affairs, glow
ing red with heat. Kxperts consider
that beans cannot be properly cooked
except in a brick oven. Home of the
ovens hold 2.000 quarts each. Filled
with the loaded puts, they present a
sight worth beholding. So hot are the
ovens that long handled Hat shovels
are used to push the pots iu and(take
them out. New York Tribune.

BACK TO THE FARM
The greatest advertisement ever given to western farm
lands is contained in the present discussion regarding the high
cost of living. Our population and its demands has increased
beyond the ratio of increased soil products. The man who
owns a farm is surer today than ever before of its future value
and worth to him. Nearly a million immigrants come" annu
ally to this country. The west is increasing in population at
the rate of half a million a year. The man who owns a 30 or
40-acre worn-out farm in Europe is considered independent,
yet the west offers you 320-acre tracts of Mondell lands or 80
acre tracts of Government irrigated land, at a price that comes
near being a gift.
With the absolute certainty that these lands will ba be
yond the reach of the homesteader in a few years, IT WILL
PAY YOU TO GET HOLD OF A WESTERN FARM for your
self or your son before it is too late. Get in touch with me.
