TARIFF BILLS ARE
A Gambler's Don'ts
John W. Gates, who died last
week, famous the world over as "Bet-You-a-Million"
Gates, the Lct adver
tised "gambling man" in America, on
December 15. 1909. astounded the
seventh annual conference of the Gulf
division of the Method lot church, at
Port Arthur, Tex., with the following

. Chicago. Aug. 9. Replies from t!fil
western editors to the Tribune'a in
quiry for their opinions as to whether
the president should veto or sign the
tariff bills, show that the majority of
28 cents a ton per mile, or over thirty
seven times more than the average
charge by the railroads. The reports
of the Interstate Commerce Commis
sion showed that the average cost by
railroads was 3-4 of one cent a ton per
"In a pamphlet issued by the De
partment of Agriculture. I read that
the farmers of several states, parti
cularly the farmers of Pennsylvania,
by the construction of good roads had
doubled their wagon loads and thereby
decreased the cost of wagon transpor
tation 50 per cent. That meant on
poor roads a saving of 23 cents a tun
per mile, and on the dry roads basis
a saving at 14 cents a ton per mile.
"When I reali.ed that this enormous
waste applied to all the great farm
crops of this country for every pound
or ton of surplus farm products must j
be moved by wagon to the cars or ele-1
vators at the railway station I was j
staggered, first at the enormous waste
and, second, at the stupidity of so
called economic philosophy. It cost
me $3.50 to haul 1500 pounds, whereas
with good roads I could haul G0O0
pounds at the same cost, showing very
clearly to me that on that wagon haul
I had a clean waste and loss of 75 ner
cent. The average amount 1 would
have to pay the railroad for hauling
the same load the sumo distance is less
than 6 cents. In other words, for what
it cost me $3.50, the railroads do it for
less than 6 cents, and the average
amount the railroads charges me ia
actually less than 3 per cent of the
amount that ia wasted in the wagon
