The currency bill which has been
introduced in both houses of con
gress is being discussed in every
town and hamlet in the land. The
thing that puzzles so many is that
the bill deals with our greatest
problem in such a simple and effec
tive way. While it takes the pow
er of controlling our finances abso
lutely out of the hands or even the
influence of Wall St., it neverthe
less will prove a great blessing to our
banks and, through them, to all
legitimate business enterprises, and
it will place the banks more com
pletely under control of the gov
ernment than they have ever been.
The two main points of the curren
cy bill are, therefore, absolute gov
ernment control of the money of
the country and the automatic ex
pansion or increase of money accor
ding to the requirements of busi
The Tariff Bill
Washington, D. C., July 28,
1913.-The tariff bill is now before
the senate for debate. It is be
lieved that this bill will be debated
by the senate until Augus t 15th.
The President is very certain that
it will pass by a substantial majori
The democrats have 5 members
in the senate, but it is very likely
that one or both of the Louisiana
senators will prove traitors and
vote against the bill, so that 49
democrats will be left to pass it.
There is some doubt about Schaff
roth of Colorado and Newlands of
Nevada. If these two should go
so far as to vote against the bill, it
is very certain that Poindexter of
Washington, "progressive," will
vote with the democrats, thereby
making the votes stand 48 for, and
48 against, the bill, causing a tie.
In that event, vice president Mar
shall will give the deciding vote
and pass the bill.
It is quite likely that one or more
other progressive votes will be re
corded in favor of the bill, viz., by
senators LaFollette of Wise., Bris
tow of Kans., Cummins of Iowa,
and Knapp of Minn. These sena.
tors left the republican party on ac
count of the Payne-Aldrich bill,
and if they should vote against the
democratic measure, which is a
great improvement on the present
tariff, they would then be voting
for the existing bill against which
they so bitterly fought four years
ago, when Aldrich, Cannon &Co.
were putting staun:-pat measures
through congress with a high hand.
These progressive senators will
have to confess that they are un
mitigated demagogues, and that
they are hypocrites and sham pa
triots if they vote agi.st this bill.
President Wilson is receiving the
most stalwart support from the
public that any president has re
ceived in fifty years, and any dem
ocrat or patriot who cannot ap
prove the leadership of the presi
dent should certainly have his san
ity, patriotism, or intelligence ex
amined by an expert because he is
evidently wrong in one or more of
