THE PALMER STARTS RAIL ROAD LEVDERS HIGH PRIG IE PROBE PUBLIC SENTIMENT IS TO BE DIRECTED AGAINST THOSE GUILTY OF EXPLOITING. WILL NOT COERCE "NO INTENTION" TO IMPRESS PROPOSALS ON PUBLIC BY "THREATS OR VIOLENCE." HAVE Attorney General Palmer Wires Food Administrators to Probe Retailers and Publish Costs as Guide. Congress to Investigate. Statement Issued in National Capital. Appeal to "Common Sense" of the American People. Men Are ' Gradually Returning to Work. Washington Food administrators In every state in the union will begin Monday the formation of fair price commissions to answer questions directed to them by Attorney General AVasliington. Leaders of (he fifteen organizations of railroad employees united Saturday in a definite assertion "that they had" no desire and have had none, to impress upon the public by "violence or by threat" their proposal that the railroads be nationalized under "tripartite control." Declaring that the requests of the men that living costs be reduced or their wages increased was aside from the question of the future disposition of the railroad problem, the labor leaders said that if President Wilson and congress could not meet this request the men would "try to find another solution." Plans foivthe formation of a national conference for railroad control were discussed at a luncheon attended by representatives of the bortherhoods and prominent persons from various parts of the country who were invited by the brotherhoods to be members of the conference as representatives of the public. While the labor leaders did not mention the president's address to con gress it was the general belief that their statement resulted from his warning to the labor world that strikes would only make present conditions worse and that those who sought to employ threats or coercion were only "preparing their own destruction. "Two distinctly separate considerations now confront the people, the wage requirements of the railroad ein ployees, and the Sims bill (embodying the railway employees' plan for reorganization of the railroads). "In the matter of wages we have submitted an eminently just proposition. We have said that if we are to continue to live as Americans should live and are to care for our families as American families should he cared for, the profiteers must be restrained or our wages increased. Every fair minded mart, and every intelligent housewife, will recognize the reason ableness of' this request. If congress and the Dresident cannot meet this re quest, it is still a living question and we fchall have to try to find another Palmer. His telegram to the food administrations with this request marks another step In the government's fight against the high cost of living and is In accordance with the desires expressed by the president in his message to congress. When fair prices are arrived at and posted by the food administrators, all of the strength of the department of justice will be used to maintain observance of these prices by wholesalers and retailers of foodstuffs. Any violations of the fair price lists will be reported immediately to the nearest district attorney and he will be vested with authority to proceed at once against the profiteer. Meantime investigators of the department of justice have reported that large quantities of foodstuffs have been stored in various sections of the country and United States authorities are investigating these vast accumulations of supplies to determine whether prosecution under the food act shall be begun under Attorney General Palmer's instructions. The general instructions issued by the attorney general to the United States district attorneys and the cooperating department agents also cover the destruction of foodstuffs by holders who purpose by this method to hold up prices to the present high levels. Reports are being received that foodstuffs are thus being destroyed, and the full machinery of the law will be invoked to reach the persons guilty. In this connection it has been proposed that congress enact legislation specially designed to cope with profiteers who go so far as to destroy foodstuffs to maintain prices.

V If You Need You a Medicine Should Have the Best Have you ever stopped to reason why is that so many products that are extensively advertised, all at once drop out of sight and are soon forgotten? The reason is plain the article did not fulfill the promises of the manufacturer. This applies more particularly to a medicine. A medicinal preparation that has real curative value almost sells itself, as like an endless chain system the remedy is recommended by those who have been benefited, to those who are in need of it. A prominent druggist says "Take for Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root- , a example preparation I have sold for many years and never hesitate to recommend, for in almost every case it shows excellent results, as many of my customers testify. No other kidney remedy has so large a sale." to sworn statements and According verified testimony of thousands who have used the preparation, the success of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Roo- t is due to the fact, so many people claim, that it fulfills almost every wish in overcoming kidney, liver and bladder ailments; corrects urinary troubles and neutralizes the uric acid which causes rheumatism.
