ADDRESSES HEALTH OFFICIALS
Chief CliemUt ot Department of
Agriculture Aillree Conven
tion of American llenlth
COLORADO BPIUNGS, Sept. !. More
than 300 physicians and scientists from
various countries of North America aro
In attendance at tile forty-first annual
convention of tho American Health asso
ciation, which opened here today. Tho
chief Interest at the opening session cen
tered In an address by Carl I Alsborg,
head of the bureau of chemistry of the
Department of Agriculture, who spoke on
the "Limitations of the Federal Food.
Dr. Alsberg laid special emphasis on
the necessity for better rural sanitation
and said that tho control of the situation
rested largely with the states, as tho fed
eral government was limited to Interstatp
matters. Ho pointed out that the big
cities were far better protected than the
country districts as they were able to
employ experts to look after tho public
Seventy Millions Unprotected.
"Tho probability, therefore," said Dr.
Alsberg, "U that there are upwards of
70,000,000 ot our 91,000,000 people who havo,
no efficient and systematic protection
from the major causes of the spread of
typhoid, tuberculosis, deadly Intestinal
diseases of lnfants.yfecarlet fever, septlo
sore throat, trichinosis and other ail
ments resulting from the circulation of
disease producing organisms."
Tho solution of tho problem, tho
Hpeaker urged, was to be found in a more
rigid and energetic enforcement of state
"A factory may be run under the most
unsanitary conditions," he continued,
"milking may be dona by a man re
covering from scarlet fever, or mine may
bo produced on' a farm whore a member
otHhe family is 'suf ferln-,.frprij typ.hot4.
and tbe federal authorities, have- no
power to act. Even if these products
are shipped 'across" a atale Una and
samples are taken, thero Is no method
for analyzing a product which can sup
Ply evidence that the food Is produced
In unsanitary ways or within contaminating-
reach ot epidemic or endemic
diseases. State authorities, however, can
enter these factories, need not wait for
shlpmonta to cross state lines and,
therefore, provided only that their laws
aro effective and the funds at their dis
posal adequate, can prevent the sale of
these deadly unlabeled foods."
Jinny Products Not Inspected.
The products, Dr. Alsberg considered
most dangerous, and, therefore, which
bhould bq most carefully watched, did not
enter largely Into Interstate trade. They
Included milk and other dairy products,
water, fish and shell-fish, candy and. In
fact, "all food that Is eaten raw or la
shipped exposed to the air."
With the declaration that tho pure food
law was "largely an economlo measure,"
In that It compelled principally accurate
branding of goods entering into inter
state commerce, Dr. Alsberg said the
Department of Agriculture was consider
ing an extension of its powors in order
to protect further tho rural communities.
"The deportment eels it should give
more attention to tho protection ot these
communities," he said. "Thls-means that
the work hitherto largely confined to de
tection of tho presence of preservatives
In labeled foods which do not carry
organic diseases, and the prosecutions

Maine Election Pleases Most of State

Avernne Voter Does Not Approve of

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Sept 9. (Speclal.)-The elec
tion In the Third Maine congressional dis
trict, resulting In tho choice of a repub
lican, Is looked upon by republicans
around the stato house as Indicating that
tho democrats cannot hope, to have things
all their own way at the next election.

about ovor the defeat of their candldato
and evidently expect to keep whistling
to keep up their courage.
Tho following stato otflcors expressed,
themselves on tho proposition:
Stato Treasurer George "When the
democrats B6nt Bryan, Champ Clark and
other democratic statesmen Into tho
Maine district to help out the democratic I
candidate It-showed that they were not
sanguine qf tho result and Indicates that
after all tlUKpcoplo havo little confidence
in the democratic administration and Its
tariff scheme. What happened In Maine
will happen In western Nebraska and
Colorado, whero the now tariff will play
nobbs with the sugar beet raisers."
Deputy Superintendent Elliott "The re-
suit of tho election. In my mind, shows
....i .1. , .j.u. .u-
that tho people are disappointed with' the
democratic administration and are going
back to the republican party."
Auditor Howard "Looks good for tho
republicans. Seems as If the vote last
fall was more Roosevelt than anything
else and would Indicate that with Roose
velt eliminated thcro would bo little left
of tho third party movement."
Mennn Get Tnirether.
Secretary of Stato Walt "I sco that
the defeated candidate lays his defeat to
treachery In tho democratic ranks. There
was no treachery, for had he received as
many votes as President Wilson got last
fall he would still havo been defeated.
Looks to me as If tho people were not
satisfied with the way the democrats aro
handling tho tariff. Looks as If tho re
publicans wero getting together. Elimi
nate Roosevelt from tho third party
movement and there would not be much
Land Commissioner Beckman "Looks
to me as If the republicans would get
Railway Commissioner Taylor "Tho re
sult of tho election In tho Malno district
indicates that if the republicans will put
up good progressive candidates thcro will
be no chance for a third party. I don't
believe tho tariff cut much figure In the
Attjorney General Martin "Looks as
though wo would hava to fight It out."
Deputy- Attorney General Ayers "Tho
election,. In w ,mlnd. Indicates that the
average man does inot .approve, of the
most ot tho men who voted for RoOsfc-
velt wero back In the republican party."
Assistant Deputy Attorney General
Edgertpn "Indicates that the republican
party Is coming back to Its own and was
not harmed very much by Internal strife.
It also indicates that the bull moose can
not expect to win, as they have no party
and only one man to pin their faith to."
Food Commissioner Harmon, who was
the only democrat seen who would talk,
professed to be Immensely1 pleased over
the result "It looks to me," said he,
"that there was little comfort In tho re
sult for anybody but the democrats."
However, there Is every Indication that
the food commissioner could be prose
cuted for misbranding his feelings In the
Eludes His Guards:
Missing for a Week
NEW YORK, Sept 9. Congressman
Timothy -D. Sullivan, nicknamed "Big
Tim" by tho east side, has been missing
a. week. He disappeared at 2 o'clock;
last Tuesday morning from the country
home of his brother in Wllllamsbrldge,
eluding his guards while they slept and
no trace of him has been discovered. His
relatives fear he has met with Harm.
He had only $1 when he got away.
"Big Tim" had a nervous breakdown
after the last election and In consequence
never took his seat In congress. Instead
he was placed In a sanitarium. The
courts judged him incompetent to man
age his estate ot several millions and a,
commltteo of four was appointed to take
charge of, his person and affairs. After
a trip to Europe he was taken to his
brother's home and three men were hired'
to guard him. Ho slipped away, how
ever, one night about a month ago and
revisited his haunts on tho Bast Side.
Friends recognised him and he was un
der constant surveillance within a few
On the evening of September 1 "Big
Tim" played cards with his guards till
after midnight Two of them fell asleep
and the third foltowed suit about 2
o'clock. When this guard awoke "Big
Tim" was not there. A quiet search was
begun, but without results. "Big Tim"
was born in 1S62 and started life as a

bushels, reducing the corn crop estimates
to 2,251,000.000 bushels. This destructive

making tho total production 243,000,000
bushels, or an Increase ot 4.3 per cent
over the August estimate.
This estimate brought the .total wheat
crop .of the country to 754,000,000 bushels

Everyoho Is enthusjatslo over tho tractor

I tccrtalnly won a great sight to see

been so many farm power machines as

bore the same number. Programs that
were distributed through the crowd gave
tho name of tho engine to which the num
ber belonged. Everything was orderly
and visitors had no difficulty In locating
the machine whose work they wished to
witness. It Is something remarkable that
with so many outfits assembled on tho
same field thcro were no accidents worth

his leg down between tho plows and
had It cut & little, but tho accident was
not serious and will servo as a warning

It was really a crowd. Two separata

few city people. Thor wero women there,
too, and tho women were as anxious and
as much Interested In wttchlng the work

Farmers had coluo from miles around

It being tho first day of tho show, It
was necessary to adjust the plows, as
