LOWER TARIFF, BUT DEARER BEEF;
The groat law of supply and demand still rules
- the meat market. Statistics show that the number
' o cattle grown in the United State does not in
crease so rapidly as the number of people to eat
Taking all the duty off dressed beef was hailed
at Washington as a sure method of increasing our
supply and reducing the price thereof. Announce
ment that the price is to advance 15 per cent, comes
as a dismal answer to that promise and a challenge
to tho economic theories embodied in the Under
It is true that taking the Tariff off beef is not
responsible for raising the price at this time, but
neither has it been able to prevent the increase.
However a real tragedy is being enacted in another
Under free wool, American sheep are rapidly dis
appearing They had a hard enough battle for ex
istence when their fleece, enhanced in value by a
high Tariff, made a larger profit for the farmer and
the Ranchman. Juit free wool is resulting in a
widespread slaughter of American sheep.
The effect of this is sure ro be dearer mutton in
the future, while the direct benefits from free wool
are still to be learned. 1( must come as a rudej
'shock to all the people of this country that under
our present Tariff law we are forced into a posi
tion of dependence upon foreign producers for
such staples as wool and mutton instead of making
our larid, as it has been for 200 years, self-supporting.
As yet the dinner table has felt no beneficent
results, from the reduced Tariff schedules. Phila-

NEW ORLEANS AS A PORT, -
In an artistic pamphlet full of practical informa
tion, and with many handsome illustrations, the
Board of Commissioners of the Port of New Or
leans has embodied its seventeenth report. The
facilities of the 'port, as shown in the report, in
clude 22, wharves, having an aggregate length of
27,000 feet and an aggregate area of :1,777,1GG feet,
costing $2,179,2:17; sheds with an aggregate length
of 19.573 feet and an aggregate area of 2,558,90(5
square feet, costing $1,483,488, and paved road
ways of an aggregate length of 20,000 feet, with
2(500 more feet under construction. Last year 2121
seagoing vessels of an aggregate tonnage of (5,080,
071 arrived at the poyt, 1(530 steamboats, 313 miscel
laneous craft and 2000 luggers and gasoline
launches engaged in the oyster, fish and vegetable
Pennsylvania mined 2(55,30(5,1:59 tons of coal, or

States, in 1913, and one-fifth of the world's produc

KICKING UNDERWOOD BILL AROUND
Here, then, is the promise of a very spirited tar
iff debate when the campaigns, Slate and national,
begin. The Underwood law, as all tariff laws have
and must be, is a compromise. Hut the fight will
be over the character of the compromise. Wepub
licmis and Bull Moosers will hold that it injures
American industries, while Democrats of the old
school of tariff reform will put forward their con
tention Jij.it free raw material and free farm w
duets are not proper yoke-fellows for dutiable man
ufaetured products. Washington Star.

BRITONS ANXIOUS TO FIGHT.
All hope that Great Britain may remain neutral
in the impending European war is swept away by
vthc obvious enthusiasm with which every militant
suggestion made by Sir Edward Grey was received
in the House of Commons. As is natural where a
government is responsive to public opinion, the
leaders of the British Cabinet are showing signs of
extreme reluctance to join in the fray. Aside from
a personal desire to evade direct responsibility for
action which must result in thousands of deaths and
in widespread devastation they wish to understand
the lenipei of the people whose servants they are.

only 80 ier cent, of tho neragc acreage
of tobacco was planted in the white

easos the growing crop Is very thin on

was only otio season for setting plants
this year and that tho long-continued
drouths have killed n largo per cent
of what was set out. It is stated b.
tho Hurley oillcials that it is yet ini
possihlo to estimate the probable sl(
of the crop as compared with forniei
years at this time, as recent rains have
in many sections materially impioved
conditions and it is yet possible that
the yield per aero will approximate thn
of former years, although that is con
sideied rather improbable. Tho liuiloy
society has not yet received any sta
tistical reports by counties relative to
tho growing crop, it being stated at the
headquarters that it is too early for any
active information to be obtained ii
this, but it is expected' that within the
ne.xt month falily accurate estimate
can bo made of the growing crop, it

The contemplated new home for the Italian em
bassy at Washington, to cost $1,000,000, and in
point of splendor stand at the head of diplomatic
.".residences, is no doubt a compliment to this coun
try, though we would hardly have expected Italy
. to take the lead in such magnificence, "not on ac
count of a lack of good will so much as of a lack of
, resources This is a reminder of the slow progress
our government is making in supplying its own
' representatives at foreign courts and capitals with
suitable residences of a' permanent character. It
would not be necessary to spend $1,000,000 in any
one place for this purpose. Dignified and every
way adequate structures could be bought or built
for less, and in some places for much less. This
would save our ambassadors and ministers from the
humiliating notices so frequently received ill the
past few years to "move on."-Boston Transcript.
