senators In the last legislature smote the

man. hip and thigh. For the democratic
candidates are Jims and the head and front
of the campaign has been vested tn Sen
ators Howell and Ransom.
Just what kind of a campaign the can
didates will wage has not as yet been
determined, as far as known, but W. 8.
Shoemaker, candidate for police Judge, ex
presses It thusly:
"It Is up to we candidates to push our
own Individual campaign, for we are
slightly up against IL"
John E. Reagan holds the title of being
chairman, but 'he working end Is vested
In John E. Moriarty, lawyer, officering
with 8enator Frank Ransom. Nothing Is
said against Reagan, for the candidates
say he means all right and would do the
square thing If he could, but Moriarty Is
secretary of the committee and Moriarty Is
dominated by Ransom, and Ransom
worked against the mayor, and the mayor
la the Idol of the candidates.
Pete Boland, candidate for sheriff, said
it would b a hard campaign for him as
he would be met everywhere with the re
minder that he was a member of the last
legislature which enacted the 8 o'clock
law. Coupling this fact with the additional
fact that Senator Ransom Is to run the
campaign with his confederate. Senator
Howell, the votes the party hoped to win
for Its candidate for sheriff are slipping
away. Boland did not want to become a
candidate, but he was drafted into the
service as were also Al Patton, candidate
for county clerk; Ed L. Lawler, candidate
for register of deeds, and John P. Crick,
candidate for surveyor.
Oeorge Holmes, nominee for county Judge,
Is one candidate satisfied with his lot, but
this Is because he offices with Chairman
Reagan and Louis J. Plattl, one of the sub
bosses. Holmes and Shoemaker, however,
are on the outside as far as the mayor's
personal following Is concerned. The Jims
were for Mertens for county Judge and
young Anheuser for police Judge. Holmes
and Shoemaker got the votes and the
nomination. Holmes was formerly high
man with the Jims and last year was secre
tary of the county committee, but no ex
planation is given for his belpg thrown
down by his old friends.

than 750,000 any year since 1902, there will
be from 2.000,000 to 2.500 000 more mouths
to feed every year. Having In view this
increase In population, the declining aver
age yield per acre of cultivated land In
the United States after It has been farmed
for a few years, the rise of per capita con
sumption with a higher cost of living and
the movement of the working population
away from the land, the time Is now ap
proaching when we shall not only cease to
be a wheat selling nation, but will find
It necessary to Import a portion of what
Adverse Trade Balance.
"Our foreign trade in the past has rested
mainly on our exports of products drawn
from the earth directly, or only once re
moved. Our manufactures for exports are
to a .large extent natural products ' sub
jected to a few simple processes. How are
we to meet the immense trade balance
against us, how prevent financial storms
of frequent occurrence and destructive
force, how feed the coming millions. If the
farmer, who pays most of the bills, has
retired to the city or the country town in
order that his children may the better
enjoy their automobiles and enter Into the
delights of the social gameT
'A stationary or declining product, a
soil becoming annually less productive, a
revolt against the life of the farm and a
consequent rise In wages amounting, since
1895, to 56.4 per cent with board, compel
such a rise of all prices as bears ruinously
upon town and country alike.
"The consumers of bread throughout the
world Increase by probably from 4,000,000 to
S.000,000 every year. In our own country
we shall require from 13.000,000 to 15.000,000
bushels more annually for seed and home
consumption. The domestic supply cannot
be maintained by present methods. Not
only Is the cultivation of the soil being
neglected, but It is also notoriously In
effective. Our wheat product per acre
from the older lands falls steadily. Our
national average Is less than half
that of England or Germany, both of
which have soli Inferior to our own. Only
by bringing rich new land under cultiva
tion have we prevented the fall from be
coming abrupt. Good farms in the Mo
hawk valley In New York state forty years
ago were worth from $100 to $150 per acre;
now many are sold at from $25 to $30. This
la not because wheat has become cheap,
for It la dear; not entirely because of west
ern competition, but because there Is
neither good cultivation nor enough cul
tivation. Many Farms Worn Oat.
'The younger generation throngs the
cities; and the land, rented by Its owners
to tenants careless of everything but Im
mediate profit, Is abused and robbed of
Its fertility. In New York state 20,000
farms are for sale. The southern central
portion shows a progressive loss of popu
lation. If anybody Imagines that this pro
cess of exhaustion and abandonment or
transfer to other uses is peculiar to the
east, let him look at Iowa, whose average
wheat crop In the five years, 1883-87 was
28.6M,WO bushels and in the five year
1904-8 was t.97,4Ji8 bushels. In 1908 It was
"Practically only a few months lie be
tween a universal cessation of production
and the destruction of the human race by
starvation. The marvelous diversity of
modern industry and Its products blinds
us to the bare simplicity of the situation.
Those who, like you, are main factors In
supplying to Industry the means to carry
It on, who open up the main and lateral
channels through which the fertilizing
stream of capital may be turned upon the
otherwise barren field of labor, should be
always mindful of the first great source
and storehouse of national wealth, and
the most sensitive whenever It Is depleted
AadreM of Speaker Cannon.
Speaker Joseph G. Cannon, addressing
the convention at the close of the morning
session, declared the law enacted after the
panic of 1907 (the Vreeland-Aldrlch act),
was not perfect, but bad good results.
He said that when congress met It was
Besieged with currency experts, each
doubling the orthodoxy of ths other.
"I believe," aald Speaker Cannon, "that
the only fault of the enacted law Is that
It only lasts six yeara. It la not perfect,
but It can be made perfect. If that law
had been on the statute books there would
never have been a suspension of business

Defending "Cxardom," Speaker Cannon
"One of the great questions before us Is
'shall the country go tn debt for vast
amounts because this or that set of people
says soT The good roads people want
1100,000,000, the swamp land people nearly
as much, and then we are asked to de
vote 1600,009,000 for the waterways to Im
prove our Internal waterways.

fifty years we may. But we will spend

which we can all subscribe. It Is quite pos
sible that the report of the commission of
a definite bill may be delayed beyond ths
next session of congress. Meantime the
members of the commission Intend to insti

change In our monetary and banking sys

from placing some form of coatroHover the

"I am told that Mr. Aldrtch will 'awing
around the circle In the present fall and
will lecture In many of the cities of the
middle west on the defects and needs of our
monetary system. I cannot too strongly
approve of this pr6oposal. Mr. Aldrlch, who
Is the leader of the senate and certainly
one of the ablest statesmen In financial
matters in either house, has been regarded
with deep suspicion by many people, espe
cially In the west. If, with his clear cut
Ideas and simple, but effective, style of
speaking he makes apparent to the west
ern people what I believe to be his earnest
desire to aid the people and to crown his
political career by the preparation and pas
sage of a bill which shall give us a sound
and safe monetary and banking system, it
would be a long step toward removing the
political obstacles to a proper solution of
Will Talk Tariff Later.
"I am not going to discuss the merits and
demerits of the new tariff bill with you. I
shall have often to refer to that before my
Journey Is ended and I must save some
thing for other audiences. Suffice It to say
that the passage of the bill has removed a
disturbing element In business.
"Nor shall I dwell at length on the ne
cessity for amendments to the Interstate
commerce law, to the anti-trust law and
the ortfanlxattoir of the departments In
Washington with a view to promoting
greater offlclency and expedition In the
settlement of controversies arising under
them. During Mr. Roosevelt's administra
tion we were all struck with the neces
sity for reform In business methods, for
more scrupulous attention to the conduct
of business In accordance with law and
for the necessity of simplifying tha law
In such a way as to make It clear to cor
porate managers what they can do and
what they cannot do.
"We are, I believe, unless all signs fall,
on the eve of another great business ex
pansion, an era of prosperity. Indeed, It is
already here In many branches of business.
The ham of prosperity and the ecstacy of
great profits are Ukely to dull our Inter
est In these reforms and to lead us back
again to the old abuses unless we Insist
upon legislation which shall clinch and
enforce those standards by positive law.
Nothing revolutionary, nothing disturbing
to legitimate business is needed, but we
must set the marks clear In the statutes
by which the lines can be drawn and the
proper legitimate paths be laid down
upon which all business shall proceed and
must have It understood by means of
prompt prosecution and punishment that
the law Is for all and Is tof be enforced
even against the most powerful.
"Then too, the needs In respect to the
conservation of our national resources;
he amendment to the public land system;
the execution of the pure food law and all
the rest of the Important matters that
should demand attention, make the exe

Roast for Sectional Talk.
"Still the world Is making progress our
country Is making progress. Occasionally
one hears a note like that of Governor
Johnson, denouncing the east and calling
upon the west to organise In a sectional
way against the east because the east is
deriving more benefit from the government
policy than the west and at the expense
of the west.
"It Is difficult for one to treat such
an appeal seriously. Throughout this coun
try there Is free trade of the freest char
acter and due to this prosperity of the
west, especially the agricultural west, Is
even mere pronounced than that of the
east. Moreover the east Is too close to
the Pacific coast, too close to the middle
west, too close to the Rocky mountains
because all the people of these western
stretches have eastern relations and eastern
connections and because they have eastern
capital with which their section have been
largely built up and because they are
loo much assisted by eastern markets In
enhancing the prices which their pro
ducts bring, to make such an attempt at
All la Sunt Boat.
"It Is true at times public questions will
be given a local color by what la thought
to be a local benefit, as distinguished from
the general and the national benefit. But
such attitude Is generally temporary and
it takes but a few yeara of business ex
perience, it takes but a panic or two, to
present the mort convincing evidence that
in this country we are all In the same
business boat and that the prosperity of
one section adds to the prosperity of the
other and that business disaster In one
section Is only the forerunner of business
depression and disaster in another.

with confidence in respect to the whole na

may well lift up my voice to protest against
any effort by whomsoever made to arouse

the country since the war has the feeling
between the north and south been mora

political attempt to make a cleavage be

"And now, my friends and fellow cltl

I feel that I carry from you to every citi

whom I shall meet the cordial greetings of
New England and the east, your congratu
