GENUINE REVISION DOWNWARD.
OW anybody ever believed we could fdl our country up with
Australian wool, Argentine corn, Canadian hay, and products
of Kuropean factories, without hurtinir American business, is
more than some people can understand, yet this is what the people
voted for last fall, and for which they condemned President Taft and
his Republican Congress because they didn't "revise the Tariff down
ward." Well President Wilson and his Democratic Congress have giv
en us genuine revision downward, just what the people clamored for,
and now that they have it, what are they "gonna do with it?" Not
one paiticle of benefit has come to the people from downward revision,
but a whole lot of harm. And we are all hoping the harm will not
grow more serious. Upper Sandusky (O.) Union Republican.

$8 on Monday of last week. We have had a bite of the American mar
ket in the form of free cattle. More pie, please." This is only an in
stance wherein the other countries will get the good of Free-Trade.
But what about the American farmer and stock raiser? Should not
their interest be considered? Central Missouri Republican.
0T is to be hoped that the money that has been appropriated for the
9 finishing of the approach to the Kihei wharf be soon expended for
the purpose for which it is intended. The wharf is useless as it
stands at present, and the Inter-Island steamers could not land passen
gers there in safety. The approach to the wharf should be made safe
and the piles that support the old portion of the wharf should also be
renewed. Some of the piles are eaten away, and do not even touch the
decking of the structure. Kihei wharf is badly needed so that inter
island passengers can land there instead of taking risks at McGregor's
