during recent years t. coii~'el al r'pubalicans to
fall into iite as ardent. jt' ,ecti, ists and to corn
pel all domocratc to ftal itt', line: as positive free
traders. During recent years in Vh.!-h these ce'rm
pulsory rulings hav(e ob)tained( the d.t:acIratic par
ty has failed of success in practically every carnm
patign. The piatform of the ,t:em.;cratic party in
.884. on which Grover C(isev land Was elected pres
ident, indi'cated the propjety of reasonable pro
tection and of the r;ghtc o" vested interests. The
intervention of leading Western 'democrats, in
cludin" Snators oTe., Q. M;lls of Texas. Jones of
Arkansas, Vest of M1,souri and \Veohies of Indi
ana, together with that of Henry Watterson of
Kentucly, revolutiornized the prospects of the
,o'itical party for political success and left it prac
tically but one candidate seeking election to the
presidency and he has been thrice defeated. At St.
Louis, in 1V88, the democratic platform reiterated
the platform on which the party won success in
1884, but with the proviso inserted by Henry Wat
terson, who was chairman of the committee, and,
who insisted upon the insertion of the words "as
explained by the president's message." This lit
tie joker of Henry Watterson's, referring to a
message of President Cleveland's in which he ex
pressed his personal tariff views, did the business
in 1888, and Cleveland was defeated and President
Harrison elected.
The interveition of the democrats resilert
West of the Mississippi. of the .Mis, Jones, 'est
type, brou'ht disasrey to the party which in its
platforms and in its principals had pre:'Lvusly been
conservatively protective. In 1892 a reaction had
set in and Cleveland was again elected to the pres
idency and the West of the Mississippi democrats
had full swing. Senator German of Maryland and
all of the conservative democrats of the Eastern
states were powerless to resist the control of these
Western senators and the Wilson bill was the final)
product of that unhappy combination. • President
Cleveland sig'ned the Wilson bill in August 1894,
and two years later the Dingley bill brought relief
to the industries seriously injured by the Wilson
bill. In the enactment of the Dingiey bill the con
servative protection democrats East of the Missis
sippi largely aided.
Our people seem to have forgotten that direct
ly after the civil war the republicans West of the
Mississippi were just about as rampant free
traders as were the democratic senators who
brought our party to defeat in 1888 and again in
1896 and ever since. The Northwestern republi-1
cans desired free trade or reciprocity with Canada.
Their great interests were in the production of{
wheat and corn and they felt that their own im
mediate interests demanded a low tariff on im
ported goods, as their own products were shipped ]
out of the country to an enormous extent and a
* protective tariff compelled them, while selling at i
low prices, to buy at high prices. These radical
wings of both parties have been conspicuous fea
tures. The republican free trade wing, however,
was whipped in, in the beginning by the waving
of the bloody shirt and by memories of the civil
war and, to some extent, by the increasing ex
penses of the administrations whose election they "
had promoted. The radical democrats, successful I
only in 1892 and failing ever since, have continued I
about as radical as ever and have apparently
abandoned the entire eastern democracy, without :
which success is simply impossible. Connecticut. t
New York and New Jersey have been democratic t
states, but the threats of free trade have driven
the democratic party there into the minority.
Grover Cleveland was elected president in 1884
on a platform satisfactory to the Eastern demo
cratic protectionists. In 1880 General Hancock,
who was the democratic candidate for the presi- t
dency in opposition to General Garfield, the re- .
publican, was very much importuned for his views (
upon the tariff question and he then gave utter
ance to the memorable statement that "the tariff I
is a local issue." The three decades that have r
passed since General Hancock made this remark E
have demonstrated the truth of his assertion. t
The radical leaders of both our leading political
parties have determined, if possible, to make the U
views on the tariff the test of party allegiance,
although nothing of the kind was urged in ante t
bellum days and neither free trade nor a protec- a
tive tariff can fairly be considered as determining
factors in the government of this country.

of the rights of the states of the unioin, when rei
acthe by the supleiWe cour(t, has been sustained in
favor (of the status. We lbeieve that no man ever'
did more harm to the federa! union than Presidett
Roosevelt, who was willin'z to Ioveirride every col
stitutional or legal limitation. prwovided he thougunt
his course was right. This estabbished a( pr'actiu.dl
dictatorship, which, while popular, has d(ne tilhe
the country a vast injury,. State's 1'ighs don't
seem to be popular and the mattet of h:cal self
goverr ent i, the ftundatiin of democracy, is not
ir(!erl aiipreciated. With, a country as \ast as
the federal union. c ritariin ne il'y a hun;dred
miiioitls of peop('le and as large as all Central Eu
rope. it would StfCrI atsurd to endeavor to reduce
all of the people' to orl; set. of lax s and regulations.
It is said now that in England one cannot build a
coiuntry toad in the Hebrid.e,,ir Northern Sc:cotland,
without going to tie English par!linent in jLol(It,
a thousand riles away, and securing the noecessary
au:hority. The democratic iUea in this country is
to grant to the federa! Ui ); n on" those i ci nts.

subdivisions, hsuch as counties atd ,ari4hes, as
complete a loc:al control as seems wise io-, the state
legislatures. This is the essence of democracy.
The tendency of centralization and. in our coun;try,
to centralization in Washington, is the reverse of
democratic, insofar as it interferes in an'y way
with or collides with the local government in
the states.
In the instance immediately under considera
tion the fact that some parties are writing down
our Louisiana senators and replresentatives as "re
publicans" leads us to ask where they can find
a better, a truer democrat than Samuel Douglas
McEnery, who fought for his state during the
civil war and during the period of reconstruction?
It was to him, to his immediate efforts that we
owed the so called Ouachita plan of securing re
lief, which was simply to drive objectionable men
out of the country. The redemption of Louisiana
from carpetbag rule began in the parish' of Oua
chita and that example was followed until every
parish in the state was free from negro control.
In like manner, Murphy J. Foster, state senator,.
rose in his might mn this state in 1890 in our anti
lottery fights and led his forces on to victory. No
one would ever question Murphy J. Foster's in
trinsic democracy. And we can say the same alsoi
of our representatives, Gen. Estopinal, a confed
erate soldier and democratic to the core, Messrs.
Gilmore. Wycliffe, Broussard and Pujo, are'all
democratic to the core. although they are protec
tionists when that particular economic question is
presented to them. The reason is manifest. Their
homes, their friends and all that they hold dear
are involved in these economic contests. To im
agine that all of our people could think just
alike would be rather absurd, and hence comes
that tenet of the d(hm),ratic faith that all peple
should yield gracefully to the vote of the majority.
The tariff bill just enacted has secured a majority
vote from a more representative body than exists
in any other great nation in the world. It might
be that with some supernatural intervention and
the development of some great, god man of Na
poleonic powers and perhaps with all the genius
of Emperor William or Theodore Rosevelt, better
things could be secured for the nation. Our na
tion, however, has decided the method of having
a congress and has decided to accept the laws en
acted by that congress. To now charge disloyalty
to party, or any impure motive to those interestedi
in the tariff debates and votes is unquestionably
unfair and improper. The defeated ones should
yield gracefully and endeavor, if they remain of
the same mind still, to rehabilitate their forces
and to open up their battle again later on.
We believe that our delegation in Washington
has done splendid work there and that we owd
much to them. We might say, incidentally, that
Senator Clark of Florida insisted that adequate duty
.should be laidl upon imjwrtc, pineapples: that Sen
ator Bailey of Texas, "nsisted that adequate duty i

The figs to he packed in boxes are
simply sorted into various sizes, rolled
i roughly into shape and then prestsel in -
to the boxes by the workers,. whose
hands are kept moist with sea water,
or, in places where that is not to he
had, with a brmne of water and common
salt.
The thickness of the skins is not
affected by the curing or the packing,
but depends entirely upon the water
upply; the less water, the thicker the
skin. About 80 per cent of the fig
trees are entirely dependent upon the
rainfall for water supply, the last rains
being generally early in May. In those
districts where there is an abundant
water suplyV, the trees are irrigated
once in the month of June and once in
July, and these plantations, without
exception, produce the thin-skinned and
juicy figs, which are the best quality.
The trees that have not been regularly
irrigated from the time of their plant
idg are seriously damagi d if irrigated
upon reaching maturity.

Organization of growers has achieved
this much: The movement of conmun

munity, the selling may be done on the
track. That next stage of organiza

trict hy the producers, has not been
reached.

the workings of nature, the seasons,
prevents Arkansas and East 'Texas
strawberry growers from cutting each

On dreamy,. summer days!

In grat'nious, Ieoa,.tfu way.

With Ihoiughts of gentle things,
Andl as thy whispers grew intense
My soul has taken wings
And flown with thee, in fancy free,.

And only God was with us then,
O wind among the trees!
