THE lOLA DAILY REGISTER, THURSDAY EVENING, JANUARY 18, 1912. HYee SOLD VE6ETI1BLES INDIANAPOLIS CAIEF TELLS OF HIS ACTIVITIES. Kr. Sbank Thlnk!i VIddlemu is Ob- sUrU to RedorlDfr CoBtnmet'i C«*t »f LlTinf. (By the Associated PTMS) Albany, X. V., Jan. 18.—Samuel I.«wiB Shank, Mayor of ImlianapoliB, who gained fame by bis percQnally conducted cut-^rice salea of potatoes, poultry, mincemeat and walnuts, In the public market at Indianapolis as a "war on the middle man" delivered an address here today before the New York Agricultural society. The only solution of the high-cost-of-living problem, he said, was to bring together the producer and the consumer. -He had satisfied himself and the people of Indianapolis, that his municipal purchase and sales agent, Idea, when put into operation, was effective in reducing artificially inflated prices of foodstuffs. "Under m«dern commercial methods and the developmsnt of se;veral grades of middlemen," said Mr. Shank, "the law of supply and demand, so far as the consumer is concerned, has become more or leas a dead letter. The consumer in large cities finds that large crops of fruits and vegetables mean little or nothing to him. HP used to cheer up when ho read of big apple crops, big peach < crops, big potato or cabbage crops for he knew these products would be cheap. Now news of this kind is received with derision. "What difference does it make if the cranberry crop Is large. Doesn't th<? price always climb from $10 to $12 a barrel or 10 to 15 cents a quart by the time the Thankfigivtng Day de- nmnd comes? Do overloaded peach trees in Georgia, Florida And. Michigan mean that the workJn|(niaii/ill go lug to have cheap Jellies afid.Jaau all next winter? Not if the market hand lers of crops know It. Though the growers may accept a low price for the peaches .rather than have them rot on the ground the various middle men see to It that they get Ui» advantage of cheap production and not the consumer. If the law of supply and demand gets into operation, you see it works almost exclusively to the benefit of the middleman. "The growers In some states found this out eomo time ago and have tak en protective measures as far as they can, by organizing associations pooling their crops and making the middlemen pay them reasonable prices, if they hope to continue in. business as dietributors. But the consumers are only now organizing to look after their own interests in the food supply question. They have for years seen the distributive forces putting their selling agents in the large cities to S66 that the supplies of foodstuffs do not overtop the demand and thus lower the prices. It Is the business of these selling agents to see that the fruits rot where they grow rather than that they crowd the markets and threaten the dethronement of hJgh prices. "To my mind the greatest gift that can come to the American peophr 1^ some permanent plan -whereby the consumer can be brought into closer touch with the producer. When t^fa is done lower prices of food products will prevail. In my own way I am trying to bring about this condition of affairs. I do not assert that my plan Is the best or that it will be suCr cessful everywhere, hut one thing I do know and thiat is that low prices now prevail in my home town. I prer sume practically all of you are far miliar with my effort* iq my borne town, Indianapolis, * nut ahiel) my plan is to buy froig wp prodacer and sell to the consunwr. "Along about the middle of September last the thought occurred to me that it was time to do something. On September 22 I found IndlaQapolii commission men wer^ paying: a bushel for potatoes wbfch, accortjh ing to the market quotations, cost the consumer from $1.60 to $2.00 a bushr <•!. This despite^fhe fact that cropf appeared to be about as large as usual. "Worrt reached me that in Michigan tb<, best grades of potatpes could be bought at 75 cents a bushel. I seat a. man into the field and two days later he wired me that he could buy in carload lots at 69 cents a bushel ;f, o. b. Indianapolis. I Instructed. h}m to buy and two days later the first car arrived. Of course efforis were made_ to discredit the value of the stock' but the consumers were anxious to buy. I placed the potatoes on sale in the city ,market and within ^ short time the car was Bold at the Tate of 75 cents a bushel. Where de^, livery was required I charged S.5" cents. I conducted this salfi myself and during the time it was in progress regular dealers dropped their price to $1.40 a bushel. "Prices advanced as soon as my* supply had been exhausted, however, t'p to the present I bare disposed of 26 car loads and hare the satisfaction of seeing prices reach a'jjolhtl near their natural level. On Novem­ ber 10. 1911 poUtoes were sellinK at tl a'd this .price or very near It preralla at present ."Temporarilr.I have abandoned the potato business because of a lack of facilities for handUsg the -Tegetables In freezing weather.. I have not been Idle however, for I. have disposed of thousands of tnrkeys and chickens and tons of nuts and mince-meat at prices below those charged by the regular dealers, thus demonstratinf that tbe difference between the producer and the consumer is entirely too great "I am a firm believer in the municipal purchasing agent idea Place a man in the markets of the various cities whose duty it is to see that tbe market is supplied with all commodities at all times and J believe steady prices will prevail. As yet we have no municipal purchasing agent in Indianapolis but I hope to have one soon. An ordinance providing for one is pending in the city conncil and I hope it will pass, have a man in my employ, however, who is looking after this matter and all he lacks is the title." MEETINGS BRINGING RESULT THIRD .SERVICE OF MEVS REVIV AL AT BAPTIST CHURCH. Attendance Wns Good and Keen In lerfst Was Manifested—Meeting Again Tonight. The men's meetings In progress at the First-Baptist church are increas Ing steadily in interest and are bringing results. The interest of the men in Christian work is being renewed and the services promise to bring about increased activity of men and boys in all religious lines. The meeting last night was well attended and the speakers were Rev William Shults and Rev. C. F. John son. Rev. Shults spoke of the ex cuses men • make for failure to ac cept the offer of salvation. They ure Innumerable, said the speaker, and include lall sorts of subterfuges evade the responsibility of rejecting the offer of redemption. Rev. Shults made the point that all men are really ready to accept the Saviour but that they are not willing Rev. Johnson followed with an ap plication of the lesson drawn by Rev. Shults. Men are ready to accept any proposition, any time It pleases them but they cannot get time or become Inclined to accept salvation. The meeting tonight will begin at 7:li;, clcslng at 8:15, in order to afford those who wish to do so, time to attend the lecture course number to be given in the First Methodist church.

Brvan Held Confercnpcs With LaFol- 'lette and Bornh—Taft-Harmon Contest SpelM "Bolt" Washington Jan. 17.—Harking back to the nlnetlec when Populism flourished In Kansas and othor parts of the Union there has bnen revived In Washington during the past few days talk of a third party. The activities of William Jennlng* with conversed earnestly fo# ten mmutes. Meanwhile members of the Democratic central committee waited in the offing. When the conference was over, both 5Ir. Bryan and Mr. LaFcllette solemnly declared they had talked of nothing save the possibility of the passage of iha pending bill for the direct election of Senators. Both of the. progressive leaders. It was stated in nx^ off-hand manner, are in favor of thi; passage of the bill. ' Doubting Democratic and Republican Thomases shook their heads. The whisper went around that the two progressives must have talked of Bill Taft. and Jud Harmon, and the reasons, from the progressive, standpoint, that they should not be elected. Thirtj party talk Is abroad In the atmosphere .ind it continues until "his day. Mr. Bryan slipped back Into town I again a few d.^yR later and bad an Brjan, In holding conferences progressives of tlie Republican Senate has led to the goselp that there: — gonator Bormay be before the next campaign is ..,h, f„ah„_ progressive Re- irVaXa? S oTZlh tl Sd as^vl^:- line parties. ' . —= The prospects for this are especially encouraging In the event that President Taft and Governor Judson Harmon of Ohio are the opposln.Jf Republican and Democratic candidates in the 1912 campaign. Wise political prophets do not see how, considering! his past political performances, William Jennings Bryan can ever bring himself to support Gover- nor'Harmon should ho be nominated.

What is true of these two progressive leaders is true also of their more radical followers. I..aFollette has a large following in the progressive Republican ranks. William Jennings Bryan, despite the fact that he has three times been defeated for the Presidency, is perhaps :he most dominant-figure in the Democratic party today. -Let Bryan say the word and thousands of Democrats will fall in tine Iiehind him to support whatever candidate he may name. It is the fear of this still potont Bryan personality that has prompted candidates president has been suggested by some regulars as a sop to the insurgent wing of the Republican party. Again was it stated that Mr. Bryan and Senator Borah had talked of the di- iftc election of senators?. Col. Bryan's well known antipathy for Governor Harmon has been exploited of Iste. Bryan has left no Etono unturned to Intim.ite to his closest friends that the Democratic party will make a mistake If Harmon Is named as the stnndard bearer for 1912. Senator LaFollette In private conversation and on the stump has made unmistakable his position that President Taft not only should not be renomlnatPd but that he cannot he reelected. The oft-repeated views of each of these proBrfS |.iivps loads to tho common belief that neither will Hiipport what they consider a radical candidate. In the event of a Taft-IIarmon tirk- et In 1012 what will be the answer? The progressives In both parties will pither ronialn avliiy from the polln and refuse support to these so -called reartionarles, or they will band together In a common cause in advocacy of a candidate who although hn may pot win ne .xt November will take the first step toward a general party disintegration, and the subsequent crpotion of a live vital third party ot progrossivism.
