Bloomington Courier (Newspaper) - March 11, 1902, Bloomington, Indiana Mem i Bloo Kington courier world 8th year. Bloomington. Indiana tuesday March ii. 190a Cravens Bros., pushers of trusts plast Erful speech delivered in great applause prom democratic Side Ixo. The Washington of the Indianapolis Sentinel says go Gressman Robert Quot a a. Miers of Indiana Deli Fred one of the most masterful speeches of the a Easiod in denunciation of trusts Tod monopolies. His arguments and illustrations pointing out the baneful effects of trusts u on the Worun men were unassailable and that he had the Complete sympathy of the democratic Side was evidenced by the frequent outbursts of applause. It was one of the Ablest speeches of the session. Or. Miers was in Fine voice and delivered the speech in his usual impressive Way. At the outset the Sik Jakur said that of All the important questions confronting Congress none is of More importance than the trusts. Quot in the terrifying growth and multiplication of these Mono Oiin tic combinations and in their apparently irresistible Juwer resides the chief danger to the american Republic today declared the speaker. Continuing he said a even the Republican party which is responsible for the trusts recognize the danger or at least sees that the people recognize the Langer and accordingly that party has repeatedly in its platforms declared in one breath that the trusts must be regulated while in the next breath it has declared for the High Tariff which alone has made the trusts possible and Given them their supreme and despotic Power. The Republican pouty is the sole progenitor of the protects five Tariff the Tariff is the Mother of the trusts therefore the re publican party is directly responsible for the trusts. This or. Speaker is a syllogism which is perfectly Clear and logical and can be doubted or denied by no trusts said or. Miers d i tier from the Large business compan ies of former times Mit merely in dimensions but in their very nature and essence. Completion in the former Days prevented monopolies and acted As the conservator of Good wages for labourers and employees in general but the trusts have throttled comp Tinon. The Trust is a combi Natick of All the firms and companies in and particular line of business to stifle All Competition and secure an. Absolute monopoly of business. It j also gets control of All the sources of Supply of the goods handled in that business and so prevents the formation of any new firms or companies outside of the trusts. It thus has the Public at its mercy to far As that line of goods is concerned. Or. Miers died some interest log statistics to disprove the claims Oltha republicans that the trusts have benefited labor by increase a a wages and the purchasing bomb Subity by diminishing prices.

I Quot Vivier the re cent census on manufacturing which have been completed for thirty three Stales and territories the average Walt yes of the labourers in All the manufacturing industries have decline Ltd it it per cent since 18i 0. Simicin locally in those thirty three states and territories 1,001.500 wage earners received an average of $418.48 each per year or ?1.3i per Day in 1890, and l,4�o,a05 wage careers in these same states and territories received an average of ?387.53 each per year or $1,20 per Day in 1000. This an average decline of i tier cent in those years and there is nothing unfair in the Cor Oparison because both 1890 and 1900 were prosperous years. The period of this decline remember was in a i period when the trusts came into Power and when their reign was Bucom inst More and More supreme with every passing year until now theg have got nearly every Branch of Industry by the Throat and can do to labor whatever they will. It but this average decline of 6 per cent in wages does not toll the worst of the Story for in some of the important manufacturing states the decline has been truly alarming. In new Jersey for instance we find that in 1890 the average wages earned in the various manufacturing industries was $2.24 a Day and in 1900 Only $1.52 a Day thus showing a terrible decline of 32 per cent in wages in new Jeney daring the to . Or. Miers then Showell by Dun s review an acknowledged authority that the trusts have not diminished prices because the Cost of living As indicated by the relative Cost of the necessaries of life is 7 per cent higher now than in lsi>0, or an increase of j1 per cent. Thet rieksts to said dictate what the citizen shall buy and the Price he shall pay. After advancing Many other telling arguments or. Miers summed up by saying that the Best Way to strike at the trusts is to Rcd cd the Tariff so As to let in foreign Competition along All lines cd strolled by the trusts. Publicity he declaring is not enough for the trusts have no shame and care nothing As to what the people think Ai it out them so Long As they arc let alone. He said Quot if a True statement of their accounts is too glaring too self condemnatory they can Issue a false statement. They Are not too squeamish for a Little thug like that. The Way to pre vent the Trust evil to restore Competition by cutting off or reducing the Tariff on Trust made mho jumped from train failed to escape troubles of his on. A Man and his wife and eleven children came in from near Modesto Only a few minutes in fore train time this morning and All proceeded to the station to get tickets for Terre haute. The Pater families grew very excitable As the train approached and had to take a family census several times before he could Tell ticket a gent Smith How Multi transportation he wanted in Bis haste and nervousness the Man for get to Check by baggage which will be forwarded on the next train. A Greencastle dispatch says Quot Jacob key Noldi who jumped from a train with a Little girl yesterday afternoon was captured four hours later. Reynolds tramped through soft Fields and Woods until he was near Clinton Falls in the North part of the county. Reynolls escaped from Deputy sheriff Cherry of Boonville who sought sheriff Cooper of this county and the two began a search for him.
