ENQUIRER SAYS DEMOCRATIC
J TARIFF LAW IS A FAILURE.
The work ol framing n bill for placing war tuxes
upon the business men of-the United States pro.

the Republican and Progressive parties, and amid
dissension and contention in the ranks of the Dem
Jt is- an uncalled for measure; an unpopular
measure, and one that should receive the condem
nation of the American people at the polls.
The Demoratie members of the Senate and the
House should have the courage to revise their tariff
They should have the political judgment to ap
preciate the fact that the voters of the United

it nil lime lull I'sni'c.ijillv sn at, this time, when
' ' all business has been under such strain, such ten
sion, such disarrangement for months and years.
The proposing of this measure by the Democratic
leaders is an open confession that the revenues
yielded by tli customs under the new tariff law are
insufficient and this supplementing of them by
new, odious and burdensome direct taxation of
business interests only arouses the people to a full
sense of the Democratic failure to provide the rev
enue through the tariff duties.
Why not boldly and courageously revise the
tariff law and secure revenues sufficient to cover
the expenses of the Government'
The Democratic platform, the Democratic
thought, the Democratic promise has for many
years been a tariff for revenue, and why not then
carry tlW'C platforms, that thought and that prola
ns logical conclusions, viz, securing rcv-
ind through the tariff?

If the present revenue laws do not produce
enough to run the Government with the sugar tax
still bringing about $GO,000,000 a year, what will
be the result in 1U1G when sugar, under the new

Democratic friends saw this shadow and made
haste to cover it with a so-called "war" tax when

Sir Donald Mnnn, of tlio Canadian parliament, is stop

'Please pass mo thoso potatoes,' said the man to the

I was one of tlio waiters?' I expected to seo our poo
