ILL SUBSCRIPTIONS CASH IN ADVANCh.
" , ' Since May 1, 1904, there have been lost in the
:,.f Panama Canal Zone 2,190 lives, o which number
1,219 were the result of accident, a) u he remain
der caused by sickness contracted by . ork on flic
canal. Moreover, 25,101 persons were injured at
the work, to say nothing of the 98,785 cases of ma
laria and 1.1G2 of typhoid. That is part of the cost
of the canal not measured or taken into account.
More lives have been sacriileed in construct nig 'the
canal than we're lost in the Revolutionary War, or
during the war of 1812 and the Mexican war com
There la not even, an offlolul assertion that tho
cost of living has been reduced by the new tariff
but the Department of Commerce has issued a
statement admitting that tho imports of foodstuffs
were in value $24,000,000 in March, or $0,500,000
greater than in tho corresponding month last year
uhder the Payne tariff, while tho exports in the
same month were below $7,200,000 or $0,730,000 less
than a year ago. In other words, the farmers and
other food producers lost $13,200,000 in one month
by the new tariff without any gain to consumers.
The loss in reality was much more, as exports in
general were all of the time increasing under theJ
protective tariff and imports decreasing, while the
opposite is now the case.
The President has uttered many pleasing phrases
about lifting the burdeiN from business. So far as
business men can .see the burdens have been made
heavier rather than lighter. As Judge Gary said
at the annual meeting of the United States Steel
Corporation, "We have many burdens to carry,
k particularly at this time; and some are very
heavy." with the Wilson tariff reducing the steel
plants to fifty or sixty per cent, of capacity, it
would seem as though the President's theory of
lifting the burdens from business men means to
take business away from these men. But the big
men on whose shoulders rest the burden of the
pay roll and the dividends find that the President's
methods and theories greatly increase their task.
SELLING OFF THEIR FLOORS.
A dispatch of .lime 5, from Pendleton, Ore., to
the New York Journal of Commerce, states that
many of tho largest sheep men of eastern Oregon,
unwilling further to cope with Free-Trade condi
tions, are selling off their flocks with the view of
giving up the wool raising industry, according to
the statement of a prominent Umatilla County
Jlockmasfcr, who had .just returned from a tour of
several counties. Four big sheep concerns in Crook
County alone are preparing to sell out their flocks,
according to the report brought there.
