When John Achats discovered that the

Several hundred persons attended the state

from California who conducted a "ollnlo"
to show what is possible. He carried a
small bottle of colorless oil and with his

head of each person coming for relief, then
declared the healing a success and went
on to others. The majority of those at
tending were women and at the meetings
during the afternoon and evening showed
many signs of hysteria.

"They meant by that wrestling, boxing,

Many Bond Issues.
ST. PA.UL, March 17.-The address of
James J. Hill, chairman ef the board of
direotors Of the Great Northern railway.
6n "Conservation of Capital." was the
feature of the forenoon session of the state
eonservatlon congress today. Howard El
liott, president of the Northern Paclfio
The general subject of the session was
"Atrioultural Development In Minnesota."
The other speakers were Prof. E. V. Rob
inson of the University of Minnesota, who
apoke on "The Farm Wealth of Minne
sota," and Prof. A. B. Chamberlain, au
perlntendent of the Farmers' Institute ef
Sduth Dakota, whose subject was "Agrl
qulture a Science and a Competitive Busi
ness." Addresa of Mr. Mill.
James J. Hill In his address urged the
conservation of capital, condemned ex
travagance, gave the oauses of the Inorease
In prices and told how the situation in
scribed by him might be remedied.
Mr. Hill said the national debt now tends
to rise, ooncealed under the boll I e fiction
of certificates of Indebtedness to cover
treasury deficits. "If." he continued, "ths
advocates of large bond Issues for all
manner of Internal Improvements should
carry their point. If that resource is net
definitely restricted to the emergency of
war, we will be in the contrition of Europe,
where the motto of every chancellery now
seems to be, 'After the deluge.'
"The phenomenal increase of publlo ex
penditure has already produced a plentiful
crop of publlo Ills. It is one of the causes
of the Increase In prices now disturbing
the people. This Increase follows in 'a
suggestive way the Inflation f national
and local budgets. The average cost of
the supplies that must be bought for Brao-
tloally every household has Inoreased about
to per cent between UN and. 1KXL During
ine last year there has been a marked lift
ing of the prlca level. Foodstuffs cost from
I to 70 per cent more than tea years age.
Cnrreaoy and the Tariff.
"Something la due to enormous currency
Inflation. The total per capita In the
ucitea statea In 1W was W1.4L and in 1909.
It wae 135.01. Although population had
grown by many millions In these thirteen
years, the amount of money to each Indi
vidual had Increased by til. SO, or more than
60 per cent. The Inorease la the total gold

anotner or credit Issues aggregating a vast
"The tariff la another contributing causa.
It Is true that it oan furnish hut. a partial
explanation. For te only a limited extent
can the rise in food prices be affected by
or traced to the tariff. As to commodities
that we export, the tariff Is Inoperative. It
generally affects prloes directly as we he
acme Importers. Nevertheless, the tariff
must bear it share of responsibility for
rising prices. v.
. ."Combinations which are actually in re
straint of trade, which have monopolised
their field and ' are -either utmtrclled by a
common secret management, or a secret
agreement to maintain exorbitant charges
are partly responsible. 8 (ill more of ths
rise of prices Is due to the decline of agri
cultural preduots as oompared with the
Increase of population." Decrease In the
number of cattle and swine waa also given
as a reason.
"When due allowance has been made for
the effect of these forces that make for
dearer living, there still remains a large
unexplained balance," said Mr. Hill. "This
must be oredlted te the lavish expenditure
which has now grown to be a national
trait. Waste, Idleness and rising wages,
all lnter-related te one another, now as
cause and now as effect are, next to an

Rise of Waarea.
"Perhaps the greatest factor of all the
price problem is the wage rate. Every
body knowa that labor cost la ths prlnolpal
item In all forms of Industry. The wage
rate has been rising steadily In this coun
try; Powerful forces are back , of this
movement. It has publlo sympathy. To re- '
slst it is difficult and may be dangerous.
As cost of production Is chiefly labor
cost, the price of the finished article must
go up If the price of labor Is raised. This
Is Just as true of the farm as of the
"The effect of national waste of capital
Is felt Immediately In the added weight
of taxation. The taxes collect. Annually
from the railroads of the country have
Increased more than 200 per cent slnoe
189. They Inoreased by $40,000,000 and by
more than 1100 per mile of track between
1800 and 190$. Franchise taxes, Inheritance
takes, taxea on. corporations and Incpine
taxes are referred to with neither ap
proval nor disapproval.
"The modern theory that you can, safely
tax the wealthy la Just as obnoxious as
the medieval theory that you oan aafely
oppress or kill the poor. It Is obnoxious
not because wealth deserves special con.
slderatlon, but because capital Is ths
mainspring of all Industry and material
development; and. after you have devoted
so much of It to the unproductive pur
poses that the state represents when It
transcends Its primary funotlon aa keeper
of the peace and administrator of Justice,
there will be Just ao much less left to .pay
out In wages and devote to the creation
of other wealth.
"The saving feature of our situation Is
that It Is not eomplex, and that the remedy
Is not obsoure. The Ideal of Intelligent
economy must be restored. Let the rule
be that every dollar unprofltably spent
marks a orlme against posterity, Just as
muoh as does the dissipation of material
resources. ' Expenditure must bs cut down
all along the line. Credit everywhere
should be conserved by a sharp scrutiny
of new bond Issues. The nation should
reserve them for tle crisis of war; no State
need ever borrow again If It Is wisely and

called Dannaventa, 189 years after the birth
of Christ. We waa the eon of a British

Latin language. It became the language
of the church all over the Island and It
made a union with Rome that has never
