TARIFF COIS FIRST
Most Important Matter Now Be
fore the Country.
With Real Chance to End the Long
Sway of Iniquitous Lobbyists,
Attention of Voters Must Con
centrate on Measure.
Don't get so interested in the Mex
ican cri?is that you forget the tariff
bill now pending JX the United States
senate- That would be bad politics
and worse sense.
The tariff now in force-the Aldrich
law-ls the perfect fruit of half a
century of vicious lobbying. It costs
American consumers not less than
$2,000,000,000-two thousand million
dollars-per year. Of this sum, about
one-seventh goes Into the aational
treasury; the rest goes to traits.
The present tariff has bred labor
crushers like the steel trust, short
weight thieves like the sugar trust,
and a whole brood of bloated mag
nates Vrho claim the right to tax the
American people for the benefit of a
clique of "protected" manufacturers.
It has created and still maintains the
most Iniquitous lobby that ever work
ed to thwart the will of a free people.
The Underwood bill is ;the first
hopeful attempt since the Civil war
to revise the tariff in the interests of
the -whole people. It is the first
promising effort to end graft which
has grown up through two careless
generations. It will pass if the Amer
ican people keep their eye on it, and
demand that their verdict rendered at
the elections ot 1912 be carried into
effect. If the people turn aside to
chase rainbows or firecrackers, the
bill is likely to be talked *o death by
leather-lunged champions of privilege,
or to be filled with jokers that lessen
or destroy its usefulness.
It is important' to end the regime
of anarchy south of the Rio Grande,
but it is yet more important to have
done with "invisible government" and
licensed robbery at home. Keep your
eye on the tariff bill. .
The Star quoted yesterday from a
Texas fhecpowner who said that if
congress was going to put wool and
mutton on the free list the sheep men
were going- to have to change their
way of raising sheep. That is, the
tariff would enforce efficiency.
The same principle has emerged in
connection with the California citrus
fruit growers. When they found they
couldn't swerve the determination of
congress to cut the duties, one of the
growers spoke up nt a conference at
Washington and said: "I guess there's
nothing fer us to do except to make
economies in production and distri

But as to essentials the sooner an

time has come to endeavor to evolve
a satisfactory compromise and waive
minor differences. The time has come
to take a forward step and think
constructively and practically.
Name Likely to Go Begging.
If the Republican party should
adopt the name of Conservative it
would abandon to the Progressives a
political trade mark nearly sixty
years old, and until last year a val
uable asset. Yet it is doubtful if
Mr. Roosevelt's party would care to I
adopt it. They are fond of the name
Progressive, and regard it as thor
oughly descriptive of their purpose?
and methods, and, having denounced
the Republican party as they did last
year, they might feel a l'*tle shy
?beut picking up the discarded label.
