tainty that these attacks will not be renewed in

fensive against the demands, for higher wages
by labor on tlie one Jiand, and against the de
mands for restrictive legislation on the other by
the people at large. The certainty of renewed
tariff agitation next winter, regardless of which
party wfns,' unsettles many "manufacturers and
merchants alike. The persistent high cost of liv

the political situation and should not be over

Good crops, better trade prospects and the early
adjournment of Congress are all favorable to an
upward movement, provided aggressive leader

FOOLING THE f'FARFJER VOTE"
' The American voter h'as to stand for a good
deal of claptrap, and buncombe in his politics,
and he is amazingly ready to swallow campaign
piffle, but he is not. likely to take seriously the
bill JustYagnI upon by the senate committee
our privileges and elections, forbidding corpora
tions to contribute anything of value to the cam
paign for presidential electors, congressmen
and state legislators.
There is no; question that such a law would
be of great good were it .enforced. The people
are tired of corporations whicli insist upon their
right to buy elections as if it were the divine
right of .kings. But a law such as this senate
committee proposes will not be enforced. It
will mask; hyproensy and doubladealmg. It
win put a premium upon corporate tools and
undergrouM wire-pulling. A glance at the
makeup of the senate committee ought to show
that its members are not sincere if they believe
their bill will be passed and enforced in let
ter and in spirit

Senator Poindexter, of Washington, who heldj
up the Kau ditch bill for several weeks in order
to get protests from Hawaii as to the financial
terms of the bill, was surprised when not a let

overrates .his own importance and his reputa
tion. Probably not a score of people in Hawaii
would know who he is if they heard his name,
and there was no protest here anyway on the
terms of the bill.. Poindexter is one of the
younger growth of senators, cast into office on a
wave of revolt against the "stajid-patters,,'of the
northwest He is fearless and able, but so sus
picious that he has depopulated Africa to fur
nish niggers for Congressional woodpiles.
