A well known humorist was being

and was forced to listen to many of
his anecdotes. The barber had to

customer. "It's hardly necessary. I

THE LEAVENWORTH ECHO
REPUBLICANS URGE PROTECT-
Washington, Sept. 18—Citing in
creasing imports and decreasing cus
toms revenues in support of its argu
ment the Republican Publicity Asso
ciation, in a statement issued l>y the
president of the organization, Ho.
Jonathan Bourne. Jr., urges restora
tion of protective tariffs. Tho state
"Over 72 per cent of our entire im
portations, amouting to $3,096,000,000
in value, came in free of duty during
tho fiscal year ended Juno :50th last.
The democratic free list gave passes
to something over $2,230,000,000
worth of foreign goods. 'Oh. these
were all crude materials.' say the
Democrats, 'to be used by our mills in
manufacturing goods.' But they were
not. Crude materials accounted for
but one-half that enorhous free list;
while foodstuffs, manufactures un
finished, and manufactures ready for
consumption made up the other half,
or $1,113,000,000 in value, and these
are the three classes of production
which give us greatest concern in
competion at homo. The average rate
of duty on dutiable imports for the
year was 21.8 per cent but the swollen
free list pulled the average rate of
duty on total imports down to a
shade under 6 per cent. Despite the
fact that imports for the fiscal year
1910 exceeded those for the last fiscal
year under the protective policy—
1913 —by 71 per cent, the dutiable im
ports for 1919—5866,000,000 —were
but $40,000,000 greater than the du
tiable imports for 1913—5826,000,000.
Those for 1919 paid into the public
treasury but $184,458,000; those for
1913 paid in $318,142,000.
"Our imports for 1913 totaled $1,
--813.000,000, of which 54 per cent came
ir. froe. The average rate on dutiable
imports was nearly 39 per cent and
the average rate on total imports
was 17.7 per cent. The rates in those
days were protective rates, not merely
revenue rates. Their purpose was to
protect American markets for Ameri
can producers and to preserve Amer
ican wage standards to American
workmen, and they did it. Now we
face a peculiar sitution. Wages have
more than doubled since 1913. Doubt
less they have doubled in Europe.
But that has acted to increase the
disparity in wage-scales between the
two continents. With an average,
say of $1.50 a day in Europe, and
$3.00 a day in America, in 1913, the
manufacturer in Europe had an ad
vantage of $1.50 per operative over
us, whereas he now has, under a dou
bling of wage-scales, $3 per operative.
Meanwhile, our tariff rate on all
imports is but one third what is was
in 1913, our free list is almost a bil
lion and a quarter greater, and such
imports as do pay 'revenue only' du
ties today, pay little more than half
the duties exacted under protection.
"In 1913 our total ordinary reve
nues were $723,783,000 of which cus
toms duties paid 44 per cent. In 1919
our total ordinary revenues were $5,
--146,883,000, of which cus collections
provided under 4 per cent. Certain
sources of revenue ,such as the liquor
taxes, are no longer available to us,
yet this government must continue for
years to come to raise not less than
$4,000,000,000 annually, and manufac
turing industries must undoubtedly
bear the brunt of this taxation. How
is it to be done? Recent rebates on
tungsten and zinc tariff amendment*
prove that the democratic party lias
not receded one step from its cham
pionship of free trade. If Europe and
Asia arr given free access to our mar
ket; if Great Britain with her vast
scheme of imperial preferences, is
aided by the free traders in market
ing her goods in this country, certain
ly our manufacturing industries can
never hope to keep their mills going
and their operatives employed, much
less to be milked for taxes to meet
the government budget. The answer
is so plain that he who runs may
read. It is protection, and plenty of
it, to American industries; but not
until Mr. Wilson and his followers are
dislodged from power can this country
hope for re-establishment of that prin
WARNS AGAINST EGG SUBSTI
The department of agriculture thru
its bureau of chemistry has issued a
warning that the so-called egg sub
stitutes \Vhich are being sold to house
wives under various trade names will
in no sense take the place of eggs in
baking or cooking.
These products consist essentially
of starch or a powdered cereal pro
duct, such as wheat flour, sometimes
artificially colored yellow to imitate
the appearanoe of eggs. Baking tests
showed that cakes made with these
so-called egg substitutes are inferior
to cakes made with water. Prosecu
tions are now pending in the federal
courts against manufacturers on the
charge of misbranding under the
terms of the pure food and drugs act.
