Why have you stopped your factories? Why is the 'Full Time and Keep Going 1 plan not now in operation? Why has there been any shutting down by you and the other me turners of the National Association of Manufacturers, the American Hardware Manufacturers' Association, and the numerous other similar associations to which you say you belong? Did you not assure us that McKinley would insure a 'full dinner pall' to all who desired to work? Wfcs not this assurance renewed when your several bodies endorsed Roosevelt and Fairbanks ? Then what has emptied the dinner pail of millions of men who are willing to work? What greater reliance can be placed on this assurance than on the others? If you were false prophets before, how do we know you will not be again? "But why the closed factories? why the idle mills? why the unusued freight cars? Why the maintenance of high prices In the face of falling demand? Where Is the "abounding," 'marvelous/ 'wonderful/ 'unparalleled,' 'widespread 1 prosperity ?

The method of campaigning for Republican votes through the corporation is resented by Mr. Baker, who asks why the factories are not ministration. The correspondence is self-explanatory. The letter received by the Austin Rotary Engine Company was as follows: New York, July 22, 1908. "Gentlemen:—We have tacked this notice upon the walls of our factories in Brookly and New York: " 'Believing that the election of Taft ami Sherman means a safe and pro- ed with having in October-November last gathered in nearly everything Jn a large way in the shape of banks, trust companies, industrial and railroad combinations, which has so far escaped them. In fact, the bulk of the people have been set a lively pace to pay the increasing prices for the necessaries of life these and a few others control. "But what has happened to the masses, whom you and other boosters of McKtnley and Roosevelt assured were to share in the prosperity? With a total estimated wealth of some one hundred and ten billions the per capita tables work out all right, there should .be enough to go round, for that's equal to about $7000 per family.

Have they been lazy, thriftless, or improvident, during these twelve years? If lazy, then who created the wealth? has the average farmer, mechanic, salesman, clerk, teacher, or laborer, squandered their proportion in rlotioua living? IKd they spend It for automobiles, steam yachts or even for diamonds? If not, what has become of it? Why haven't they got it, how did they lose it? What has been the unseen subtle, but apparently all-powerful force that has taken it from them? Why have matters become so appalling in America that the so-called effete countries of Europe have felt impel fed to take official cognizance of the deplorable conditions in which so many of our toilers are compelled to live.
