What is likely to happen to. those Democratic
r.iembers of Congrtss who go by their platform
literally is indicateiV in'the following news dis
patch from Florida: ; : ; -

the"tariff on citrus fruits. to a point that is not
"competitive," according to a resolution adopted
by the directors ?6f tlie change today. The
Florida glowers are angered oyer treatment ac

and means committee aU he recent tariff investi

Florida citrus fruit grfnv.ers.would work to pre
vent the re-election of any senator or wngress
man from Florida who votes for a bill reducing
the present tariff on citrus fruits; and if such re
duction is made "will repudiate the act jon of the
Democratic, party and pledge, ourselves to sup
port a party thatwill projecjiir hoines, indus
tries a ud lives -from the disastrous influence of
imported products." v ; ; .
This would seem to indicate a possible line
for the sugar planters of all parts ot tlie country.

Frank Munsey's great scheme of a "holding

parties in a 1916 fight against Democracy has

Republican leaders declined to take it seriously.
