Secondly, if we contribute to
sustain a naval fleet on Ameri

All branches of business in the
western states would derive a
financial benefit from an increas

The necessary supplies for the
commissary department of a

branch of industry in the sur

products from his farm consist"

eggs, etc. ; the cheese factories;
the fruit growers; the flour
mills; the merchants of all
branches of business. Employ
ment on railroads and steam
boating would increase. Boot
and shoe business would in
crease. Tailoring establish
ments and dry goods houses
would be in greater demand. In
fact a new era of prosperity
would loom up amongst all
branches of industry from the
millions of dollars going out in
circulation from the men com
