Pennsylvania Grangers Vitally
Concerned In the Taritf.
PENROSE'S STRATEGIC POST
Aa Leading Member of the All-Power-ful
Financial Committee of the
United States Senate, the Senior
Senator Will Be An Important Fac
tor In Protecting the Varied Inter
ests of the Keystone State.
Harrisburg, Oct. 20.
Attention has been directed In the
discussion of the issues of the presi
dential campaign to the vltnl interest
the farmers of Pennsylvania, and in
fact of awry s.tate In the Union, have
in the continuance of the present sys
tem of a protective tariff.
The wonderful strides made by Can
ada In the development of her agri
cultural interests, and the rapidly in
creasing growth of her population,
have been tho subject of comment by
oratois who have sought to Impress
the farmers of the United Stales with
the fact that they, probably more than
any oilier class, are concerned In tho
success of tho Republican party, which
means that whatever changes shall ho
made in the tariff, they shall be nude
along the lines 'of protection to Ameri
Thirty millions of people, many of
them agriculturalists, will shortly con
stitute tho population of Canada, and
tho great output from the Canadian
farms will come in direct competition
with tho products of Pennsylvania
farms, of Now York farms .aid of the
farms of the other states.
Unless there shall be a protcctlvo
tariff, tho American farmer, who la
used to the comforts and many of tho
luxuries of life, will be in direct com
petition with the Canadian who, while
thrifty, does not have anything like
the enjoyments of home life that are
possessed by the farmers In the United
Penrose's Important Position.
Not only tho presidency, hut con
gress, must be won to insure to tho
American farmer, as well as the Amer
ican manufacturer and workingman, a
cantinuanco of the protective tariff.
In Pennsylvania there is a legisla
ture to elect, which in January next
will name a successor to United States
Senator Boles Penrose.
Senator Penrose occupies an im
portant position in the United States
He 1b tho first Pcnnsylvanian in
many years who has been appointed
on the powerful committee on finance.
Neither Quay nor Cameron was on
Penrose was given a position on It
Immediately after his last re-election,
and he Is now one of tho senior mem
bers of the body. It is not improb
able that before long he will be filling
the .chairmanship of this committee.
Aldrlch, the present chairman, is talk
ing about retiring from the senate.
The second ranking member, Burrows,
of Michigan, may encounter difficulties
in being re-elected on account of tho
peculiar political conditions in the
stato. The third member, Piatt, of New
York, will not bo a candidate for re
election, so that Penrose, who comes
next, will bo moved up to tho head of
tho committee in accordance with
' precedent in the senate, where senior
ity is always considered in the ranking
of members of committees.
With Penrose in such a splendid
strategic role, he will be In a position
to guard Pennsylvania's Interests, her
granger, her industrial, her raining and
her other lnerosts, which have enjoyed
All tariff legislation must come bo
fore the finance committee, and the
final settlement of all disputed sched
ules is referred to a committee on
conference, three members of tho sen
ate and three of the house, and it Is
fair to assume Senator Penrose will bo
one of these conferees, If not the chair
man of the senate sub-committee.
The Importance of electing Republi
can members of the legislature will
appeal to every one, as well as the
urgency of sending Republicans to tho
lower house of congress, where the
Democrats hope to make gains, princi
pally In the west.
Pennsylvania farmers will be inter
ested In an address recently made by
John H. Landls, of Lancaster county
In which he emphasized tho menace
Which Canada's industrial develop
ment must hold over American;, farm
ing and dairy interests, as long as;
thtre shall be any danger or a revision'
cf the tariff undor which the farmers
of the United States have become bo
Timely Talk to Farmers.
In this speech, Mr. Landls, among
other things, said:
"In the Democratic national plat
form adopted at Denver we And no In
timation even for 'Incidental' protec
tion, but a sweeping declaration for
such reduction! In tho various sched
ules as 'to restore the tariff to a reve
nue basil.' This, of course, means the
'revenue basis' of the last Democratic
tariff law; tho Wilson law of 1194,
jwhlch was not only d destroyer cf In
Juitry, a nightmare to capital and an
inemy to labor, but a most humiliating
lailuro even as a producer of reve
nue. "Tho Republican party has upheld
ind defended tho Industrial policy of
protection slnco Its birth, more than
half a century ago, because It favored
Iho fostering and encouraging of en- ,
lerprlses and Industries through which 1
profitable employment would bo given
to American labor.
"This magnificent system of a pro
tective tariff has been made as nearly
perfect as we find It today, through a i
varied experience of more than a cen
tury. Tho enactors of every protective '
tariff law placed upon the statute
books of the United States, from the
tariff of 1789, during tho administra
tion of George Washington, to tho
DIngley tariff of 1897, during tho ad
ministration of William McICinley,
wero rewarded by having periods of
prosperity enjoyed by all tho people,
following their legislative labors.
"If we, as a nation, aro to be healthy
and strong, our peoplo must be well
fed, well clothed, well housed and be
enabled to enjoy at least tho comforts
of life. If our citizenship, the source
of all political power In a free repub
lic like ours, Is to bo pure and unim
paired by unhealthful conditions as It
should bo, tho heads of families mint
have an opportunity to earn enough
nbove the actual expenses of living to
enable them to educato their children
and to properly prepare them for the
duties of American citizenship.
Peril In Canadian Situation.
"Comparatively few of our people I
are acquainted with tho agricultural ,
situation ns It exists today. They do
not know of the vast region of country
lying to the northwest of us, which is
most favorably adapted to the growth
of American cereals not only, but to
tho successful growing of fruit, dairy
and orchard products as well. !
"The vast provinces of Manitoba,
Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Co- i
lumbla have a sufficiently largo area
of rich and fertile soil to feed the
world if need be. It reaches over 800
miles to tho northwest of Winnipeg,
mid contains over 200,000,000 of acres.
Tho soil has a depth of from eighteen
Inches to two feet of black loam of
marvelous fertility, which will grow
bountiful crops for at least twenty,
possibly thirty years, without tho ex
penditure of a dollar for fertilizers.
"This vast region of territory is fa
vored not only by its natural richness
In fertility, but by a most delightful
climate. Within its limit will some
day be grown over 5,000,000,000 bush
els of wheat and other cereals.
"Tho prevailing Impression abroad
Is that tho further north you go, tho
colder and moro severe a climate you
must contend with. This Is a mistake.
You can go 500 miles northwest of
Winnipeg and see a country whose
climate, soil and natural productive
ness will produce most of tho farm
products grown in Pennsylvania. This
may seem startling, but an examina
tion into the facts as they are will
find this statement correct. It is true
that spring seeding in this region can
not be completed before May, and
therefore the shortness of the season
would seem to operate unfavorably
toward the growing and maturing of
the crop, but such Is not the fact. The
one factor which operates strongly In
favor of the growing of cereals and
other crops Is the length of the days.
Gain a Day a Week.
"In tho United States we have only
about sixteen hours of daylight dur
ing the summer, while tho region ol
which I speak has about nineteen
hours. Eight hours of darkness has
much more of a check upon tho growth
of plant life than flvo hours. There is
a gain of about a day of sunshine in
their favor every week during the
"Railroads are being extended Into
all sections of this region. The compe
tition among theso, which is practi
cally guaranteed under existing laws
in the Dominion of Canada, will in all
likelihood secure and continue rea
sonable transportation rates.
"Grain elevators and warehouses are
springing up all over western Canada.
According to a list furnished quite
recently by tho Manitoba grain Inspec
tors division, Manitoba has 685 eleva
tors and twenty warehouses, with a
capacity of over 21,000,000 bushels.
Saskatchewan has 608 elevators and
eight warehouses, with a capacity of
nearly 15,000,000 bushels. Alberta has
109 elevators and six warehouses, with
a capacity of nearly 4,000,000 bushols,
and British Columbia has three ele
vators and two warehouses, with a
capacity of about 276,000 bushels.
Thus It is shown that these four young
Canadian provinces alone have eleva
tors and warehouses already with a
capacity of about 40,000,000 bushels.
To these could be added the Ontario
Terminals elevators, with a capacity
of nearly 20,000,000 bushels.
Immense Crop Reports.
"According to the report of tho de
partment of agrlculturo of Manitoba,
the 48,000 farmers of that province
raised about 40,000,000 bushels of
wheat last year; over 42,000,000 bush
ela of oats; nearly 17,000,000 bushels
of barley, and 428,000 bushels of flax,
ryo and peas. A total grain crop of
almost 100,000,000 bushels In a very
unfavorable year. The spring was ex
tremely cold and consequently unu
"To this can bo added over 6,000,000
bushels of potatoes; nearly 120,000
tons of timothy and other cultivated
grasses; 4,800,000 pounds of butter
and other dairy products (these dairy
products were marketed at $1,217,000),
and poultry, which Included 440,000
chickens, 73,000 turkeys and 40,000
geese. These Industries will In all
likelihood show a very rapid growth
this year because the season has been
Quite favorable and a very large yield
cn bo expected; A yield of 160,000,000
bushels of grain in Manitoba this year
should surprlso no one.
"Over 100,000 new homo-seekers
come Into western Canada oach year,
snd with this rato of growth among the
tillers of the soil In these four prov
inces, It Is roadlly seen what serious
competitors of ours they will soon bo.
Protection the Only Hope.
, "Wlillo we should entertain and cul
tivate tho most neighborly and friendly
relations possible with our Canadian
neighbors, we should most strenuously
Insist upon preserving our own mar
kets for the farmers of our country.
It is the best market In tho world and
It Is ours, and the r.trous arm of
American law should continue to hold
It for us.
"When once the time comes thnt tho
rarmers of the United States will Jio
unable to produce all our people can
consume, a reduction of duties upon
agricultural products may be consid
ered, but until then there should be an
Inciease of duties rather than a re
duction. "Even under existing duties 5414,
000,000 worth of agricultural lmport3
came into this country last year, snmo
of which we should produce ourselves.
Of these many millions worth wore Im
ported from Canada, a considerable
portion of which wero competitive
agricultural products. If under exist
ing law tho Canadian farmer sells $:i0,
000,000 worth ot farm products in tho
markets of the United States., what an
invasion of cheap farm products
grown on the cheap land of woste-n
Canada could we expect if thi' DIngley
duties were reduced?
"Open up the Hood gales and let the
free farm products of Canada In nnd
you will witness an nRrlrultiir.il pir.i
lysis such as this generation of farm
ers has not yet oxpei U-'icod."
Mr. Taft nt Ynlc.
Mr. Taft was seventeen yearn old
when he entered Ynlo and had Just
passed his majority when he was
graduated with the class of '78. Nu
merically '7S was the largest class In
tho history of the institution, with ono
or two exceptions. Of Its 1S5 mem
bers 120 graduated. There are now
ninety-six of tho graduate members
living. "While Mr. Taft dominated
tho class physically," writes the class
historian, "his, even nt that time, was
a dominating mentality ns well."
Scholnstlc nnd social honors came to
him unstintedly. He was n member
of Delta Kappa, Phi Thota rsl, I.ino
nla, Skull and Bones nnd Phi Beta
Kappa. In his freshman year ho was
president of tho class boat club nnd a
member of the Delta ICappa campaign
committee nnd of tho freshman class
supper committee. With Roger Foster
ho tied for second place in the fresh
man scholarship, divided the first
mathematical prize with John I. Mc
Donald and won two first sophomore
composition prizes. In tho fall games,
senior year, ho pulled with the win
ning tug of war team. Ho prepared n
philosophical oration at the junior ex
position and at commencement Ho
was tho salutatorian nnd also the ora
tor of his class.

Tho expert of tho agricultural depart
ment, Dr. "Wiley, has boon demonstrat
ing how to turn farm waste into wood
alcohol. The product obtained is not
denatured alcohol, although It la used
for tho same purpose that Is, for fuel
nnd In certain manufacturing arts. It
is a species of wood alcohol, nnd there
is talk of utilizing melons as well ns
corn and potatoes for Its production.
If tho small farmer finds n good mar
ket for his small potatoes and Imper
fect corn and melons at the still, one
of tho evils of farming which Impov
erish tho soil may bo Increased by
this new Industry that is, tho removal
for sale of what grows on the farm in
stead of feeding It to stock and re
turning it to the land. Possibly tho
refuse of the still may be returned to
the farmer for fertilizing. But some
of tho Important chemical elements
will be lacking. With the profits of
the crops also some of the commercial
fertilizers may bo bought; but, however
It goes, nature's system of returning
vegetable products direct to tho soil
will bo ovaded, perhaps to 4he detri
ment of tho soil.
