A duty high enough to equalize the differ

therefore created, fostered, aud developed
home industries, and by virture of domestic
competition prices have been reduced iu many
cases below the duty levied, while the wages

THE FARMER AND THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.
The Vestern Star has put in few words in
its last issue the substance of the strongest
campaign argument which can possibly be
used, in 1012. The Star says editorially:
"Mr. Farmer, do you recall the "Wilson
. Tariff" times? It was nigued that "Tariff for
revenue only" was the thing needed. Do you
remember what you got? Wheat was .r)0c a
bushel then, corn was IS to 18 ceuts, oats
nbout 13 cents, horse9 brought from $50 to
$60, and $20 to $2f would buy a good cow.
"How is it now? Wheat is at tho dollar
mark, corn around the same, oats and a pro
digious crop at 2S cents, (and it will be higher
before spring) hay $12 to $18, horses up to
$200, cows twice the prieo the same cow would
havo brought iu the Grovcr Cleveland times.

In his speech of acceptance Wood
row Wilson asserted that the tariff has
made the busings mou of the country
"timid, fretful, full of alarms; has
robbed them of solf confldenco and
manly force until they have cried out
that they could do nothing' without tho
assistance of the government at Wash
ington." Present day conditions challenge tho
accuracy of this statement. Tho ex
cellent doctor would do well to point
out some of tho "timid, fretful" busi
ness men who are now "full of
alarms" and who aro lacking In "self
confldenco and manly force." Whero
can he find them?
The country is at the high tide of
prosperity. Business confidence is in
evidence everywhere The course of
tho Republican administration Is di
rectly responsible for this condition.
Danger lies only In a change of admin
istration, with the consequent change
of policy that Is promised. Then, tru
ly, the business men of tho country
would bo "full of alarms," and they
would have Justification.

STANISLAUS GRODZIK HAS
ENOUGH SAVED TO LAST
FOUR YEARS IF WIL
SON'S ELECTED, SO IS
WILLING TO LOAF.
(Special td Telegram.)
Webster, Mass., Sept. 29.
Stanislaus Grodzlk, who lives
In the East village, although
he Isn't a voter, Is red hot for
Wilson and has one of the
strongest arguments ever in
favor of the Princeton profes
sor for president.
Grodzlk has lived In Web
ster fifteen years and Is a can
didate for naturallzatlqn next
year, He won't be able to vote
for Wilson this year, but has
advised all his friends to vote
Grodzlk's argument It that
he workirttoo hard under the
prosperity administration af
Taft and Republicans and
wants a rest. With Wilson
and Democracy at the helm
Grodzlk, who has experienced
the administration of one
Democratic president, knows
that there will be plenty of
chance to loaf.
For ten months the East
village mill of the S. Slater &
Sons, Inc., has been working
night and day to fill orders,
anJ as a result of the pros
perity at the mill Grodzlk has
been worked over-time. If
Taft Is re-elected Grodzlk
fears that the over-time
schedule may be extended to
another term of ten or twenty
months and wants to call a
"Too much work whon Re
publican he's President," said
Grodzlk today. "With Demo
crat lots time to loaf and
spend all the money we make
when Republican It boss. By
Gosh I I'm alck for work bo
hard and no chance to spend
my money. If Democrat he's
elected wo have lots of time
then. I guess I got enough
save to last four yean If we
work half time."
