Republican The Republicans in Natumnl Convention at
Tarii'f Plank. Chic-io have adopted a tarilT plank that is tin.
surpassed by any former declaration. t
The tariff question means more to all classes than atiylhi'i"; else.
The Republican party delates unequivocally for a revision of the
TarilT by a special session of Uonjrress lmnicuiateiy loiinwiujr mi

and effect of existing schedules.
In all TarilT legislation the true principal of Protection is best
maintained bj the imposition of such duties as will equal the dif
ference between the cost of production at home and abroad, to
gether with a reasonable profit to Anieriet.n industries.
We favor the establishment of maximum and minimum rates to

countries against American goods enterinir I heir markets, and th.'
minimum to represent the normal measure of Protection at hum .
the aim and purpose of t he i Republican policy being not only t
preserve, without excessive duties, that security against foreign
competition to which American manufacturers, farmers and pro
ducers are entitled, but also to maintain the high standard 01 liv
ing of the wage earners of this country, who are the most direct
beneficiaries of the Protective system.
Between the United States and the Philippines we believe in a
free interchange of products with such limitations as to sugar and
tobacco as will afford adequate Protection to domestic interests.
Here is a declaration that means- something, always the same
something to everything. We shall have revision, whether rales
are soiigh that they permit abuses in the matter of extortionate
prices by monopolies which are immune from rivalry at home
through agreement and combination, and from competition by
foreigners through their exclusion from the American market un
der any and all circumstances, or whether rates are too low to en
able home industries to maintain themselves against the attacks
here of alien capitol and labor. And the most ardent Protectionist
who is sincere in his support of the American Tariff system on its
true lines cannot object to provision for freeing the public from
the clutches of greed and extortion which are exercise! under the
shelter of the Tariff or of anything else. The whole theory of that
system is that it must benefit the people at large-first by giving
them work and wages which otherwise would go to foreign labor,
and. secondly, by building up vigorous industries which, under
natural laws and conditions, will compete vigorously among them
selves for the trade of the home market, thus assuring fair prices
in the rivalry to gaiu and hold customers. Under this Tariff policy
of the Republican party, not only have the greatest industries in
the world been established, but prices to consumers have fallen
below the levels which obtained before there was such production
by home mills and factories.
But if there is to be revision the Republican party does not pro-
pose anything that will sacrifice the employment of American labor
or the legitimate profits of American capital. No language could
ho plpnrpr nnrl stronger than this: "In all Tariff legislation the
true principle of Protection is best maintained by the imposition
of such duties as will equal the difference between the cost of pro
duction at home and abroad, together with a reasonable profit to
Undoubtedly this is the conviction of the American people. They
know what wealth and blesshurs they have enjoyed under a Tariff
which has enabled Americans to earn their- livings and better
livings by far than any foreigner has ever earned by making for
themselves whatever they consume when it is possible for them to
make it. They must appreciate that the worst disaster which
could fall upon this country would be for a stream of foreign com
merce to come flooding over our market, wiping out American in
dustries, destroying the material wealth in the factories and mills
and the potential wealth of the employment of the American wage
MTMPrs. No war ever devasted a country or wrought the havoc
to a people that would be suffered in the United States if a com
mercial invasion by foreigners should be allowed to exterminate
our home industries and strip our warge-earners. lhe whole or
any part of such invasion that could overwhelm our producing
agencies would be absolutely prohibited by the continued enforce
ment of the policy which is reiterated in that TarilT plank.

Honolulu, July 18. The Supreme
Court yesterday held that a Deputy
County Attorney can represent the
people of the Territory, and the
Territory, in criminal proceedings
in the Circuit Court.
The decision was the unanimous
finding of the court and was render
ed yesterday in the ap)eal of An
tone Lucas against the Territory of
Hawaii. Lucas was convicted in the
Circuit Court of Hilo and appealed
on the sole ground that a Deputy
County Attorney could not apiear
for the Territory.
The Supreme Court says there is
no merit in the contention. It says
there is no difficulty in holding that
