Replies to Oliver In a
A VERY INTERESTING COMBAT
vlMonday was speaking day In
jirtford at which tlmQ Congress-
Van Ben Johnson (Democrat) and
Hdnator A. J. Oliver (Taft Repub
lican), were billed to address .the
voters of Ohio county. Doth spoke
In the afternoon beginning at 1
o'clock. On account 'of being 'first
to make the appointment, Senator
Oliver spoke first. Tho court room
was hardly half full when the first
speaker Uegan, but when Congress1
man Johnson took- the floor the
house was crowded and many were
vstandlng In the aisles.
' Senator Oliver was Introduced by
Mr. Otto C. Martin In a brief way.
AlraoBt the whole of the Senator's
speech was devoted to a defense of
the old Republican principle of
high protective tariff. He accused
the Democrats of being In favor of
free trade, when everybody who
reads the dally press knows that
Gov. Wilson has thoroughly repud
iated that Idea, neither does the
Democratic platform contend for
any such thing. He inveighed
ttgalnst the Wilson-Gorman bill of
qho Cleveland administration and
read part of a Republican campaign
leaflet to support his argument. He
also quoted frqm that ancient book,
.Coin's Financial" School
Senator Oliver did not explain
-why the Republicans . promised to
revise th tariff downward and
then failed to do so. If the tariff
Is all right, why this promise? He
said there was no spot on Republic
an administration since 189G, but
evidently forgot the panic of 1907.
AHo predicted all kinds of calamity
If the Democrats should win, but
did not say1 what would happen If
Itoosevelt should be elected. Tho
Senator told several old anecdotes
to Illustrate certain points of h,ls
speech, two of which were, gotten
off here last year by Mr. Ed Mor
row. The Bull Moosers were left to
the very last for the speaker to
tackle, and then he handled them
with maudlin tenderness and affec
tion. In tearful tones he pleaded
for the Bull Moosers to "come back
ome." He Bald a vote for Roose
velt was Simply thrown away In
other words, It was a vote for Wil
son. Said Taft Is the man the Dem
ocrats fear, which Is directly con
trary to what the local Moose organ
has been contending. Ho advised
the negroes to stick to the "Abe
Llnkum" party the source from
which they obtained helr freedom.
There were several Mooser3 pres
ent, but they sat In grim and
stone-faced silence, and gave no ev
idence of either enjoying or reject
ing the speaker's remarks. All in
all, his speech was very tame and
mediocre. He spoke for an hour
afrid a half and then gave way to
Congressman Ben Johnson.
Mr. Johnson was Introduced by
Campaign Chairman C. M. Crowe,
who very aptly; remarked that Con
gressman Johnson really needed no
Introduction tb an Ohio county au
dtence, as almost everybody knows
and admires him. What Mr. John
son, did for Ir. ?.Uye,r,'8 high , pro
tection argument "was a plenty. Arid
he did It In such a nice and gentle
manly way, supported bywell
known nuoted iact from -statistics
and otherwise, that nobody could
doubzt his contention, The, first

taxpayers by his diligent work as a
member of the Committee.
Mr. Johnson proved the utter fal
lacy of the most of Mr. Oliver's ar
gument along high protection lines;
showed how the consumer pays the
tariff tax in every Instance. As an
Illustration he took the internal
revenue tax on whiskey. Everybody
knows that the Internal revenue
tax on whiskey "Is $1.10 a gallon.
Everybody also knowa that this
$1.10 Is added onto the cost
of every gallon of whiskey
Bold to the retailer, who sells tho
stuff, either by the gallon, pint or
drink, in proportion to what it cost
him. So at last the consumer pays
the tax. If 1 wore not for this tax,
whiskey would sell a3 It used to
anywhere from 15c to 40c a gallon.
(Mr. Johnson added by way of pa
renthesis that he wished this tax
was ?5 a gallon, so strongly is he
opposed to the liquor traffic.)
It 'is the same way said the
speaker, .with the tariff tax on all
family supplies the consumer at
last pays the tax. The tariff pro
tects nobody but the manufacturer.
The great heads of the big trusts
fix the prices on the different com
modities used In every household.
That Is the reason tho. farmer must
sell his supplies t "the market
rprlce," which governs the sale of
iibgd and cattle. There being as
yet no horse or mule trust, the buy
er and seller can fix the price. But
almost everything else notably
the dry good8 trade Is arbitrarily
governed by the prices fixed by the
trust controlling same.
Speaking of the Bull Moosers,
Mr. Johnson said the Roosevelt
platform contained all tho bad ta
ken from previous Republican doc
uments of like kind, and the good
from Democratic platforms. Mr.
Taft is simply standing "pat" on
the rotten record of his pnrty. He
would rather see the fortunes of the
rich augmented by his vetoes of
worthy Democratic bills than the
poor prosper by Democratic leg
islation. The principles of Demo
cracy, said Mr. Johnson, will never
die, whether they win out at the
polls this fall or not.
Mr. Johnson's speech was highly
complimented on all sides, many
Republicans and Moosers giving it
their meed of praise. It dealt In
facts from th0 records, substantiat
ed by the personal experience of
Mr. Johnson In Congress, and not
alleged funnv anecdotes to support
exploded fallacies. Mr. Johnson
was heartily congratulated at. the
close of his speech. He addressed
the voters at Fordsvllle yesterday.
BRAVE CRIPPLE GIVES

Gary, Ind., Oct. 19. "I guess
I'm some good, after all."
Billy Rugh, the forty-one-year-old
cripple whose withered leg was
amputated to save the life of a girl
in a' skin-grafting operation in a
hospital, spoke these words this
morning and then died. Pneumo

have been the cause of death.
The allme'nt, however, resulted
directly from his self-sacrifice, hav
ing bein due to irritation of the
lungs by the ether that was given
him when his leg was cut off to
furnish skin for the body of a per
son whom he had never seen.
