Why Fear Reduction.
High protectionists declare even the
slightest tariff revision downward
would hurt 'our business, and lessen
"The slightest revision downward
will throw men out of work," is the
cry of the multi millionaire tariff trust
heads who have been getting an over
increasing amoun of protection all
IheBe years while at the same time
importing foreigners .to take the place
of American workers and paying their
workers little more than a pittance.
Is there anytning in the argument in
the rich high protectionists. If they
are right in their contention'.that some
tariff revision would lessen our ex
ports, one would naturally think that
Great Britain, with free trade, would
have perished long ago.
But'Great.Britain is not perishing.
For the month of November the total
amount of trade in Great Britain was
$620,000,000. The increase in exports
as compared with the "boom" figures
of November, 1911, was $11,760,000.
There is now full employment for la
bor in that "benighted" free trade
kingdom. Even the protectionists are
forced'lo admit "a cycle of splendid
trade and national well being," and
that there is no protectionist country
that shows a parallel propserity.
Theie is food for reflection in these
figures. They show there is nothing
to the contention that revision down
ward of the tariff is likely to ruin bus
iness. Honest business men of the
country fully realize this, and have no
apprehensions because of a Democratic

Underwood's. He made it directly to

The indications are that a feature
of the Democratic policy is likely to
be free dressed and rough lumber,

Promise to Humanity.
"Broken bones repaired and wounds
healed while you wait." This, is the
promise that the present year of grace
holds out to suffering humanity, ac
cording to no less an authority than
Dr. Alexia Carrell of the Rockefeller
Institute of Medical research and win
ner oft he Nobel prize of 1932 for the
most important discovery in the field
of medicine and physiology.
Nevertheless Dr. Carrel's prediction

Concrete an Old Story.
Rome was not built in a day, nor"

built in structural steel, but it turns
out that most of Rome's mighty
structures, temples, circuses, baths,
aqueducts, were built in concrete,. not
reinforced 'with iron and steel, as we
build now, but a good quality of sand,
stone and cement nevertheless. On
this powerful central core of cement
