Now is the time for Democracy

Don't repeal the Initiative
Amendment. Amend it so as to
take away the bad features. It
has many things to recommend it
to the people.
Under Democratic rule the trusts
and monopolies will get justice;
they will not prosper at the expense
of the people, but they will enjoy
the same prosperity as do the peo-.ple.
Democracy has won a victory
over the trusts and monopolies, but
the people must not rest on their

the days go by the organization
will be made stronger. In fact the
fight has just begun. One defeat
has not dismayed those who desire
laws which permit them to fatten at
the expense of the people. Democ

equal rights to all and special privi

When Republicans Began to Think.
President Taft vetoed the bill
which the bouse and senate passed
at the last session which reduced
the extortionate tariff on woolen
goods which would have been a
benefit to every man, woman and
child in the United States. Then
his own party, of which he was the
egal head, began to ponder just a
trifle. President Taft's veto of the
bill was followed by a strike in the
woolen mills which showed the con
ditions among the employes to be
the worst in any industry in the
United States and made many Re
publicans who favored protection
do more thinking than they ever
did before on the subject. They ar-.
gued that even if the president does
believe in a tariff board, he had no
right to prevent the relief that this
bill gave to the people and especial
ly to the poor who have to brave
the piercing cold of winter to earn
their daily bread. The distress and
perhaps death that that veto of
President Taft brought into the
families of the ipoor, they cannot
They had been told that tariffs
were levied mainly to increase the
wages of labor, but the evidence
introduced in this case showed that
the workers in the highest protect
ed industry in the country received
the lowest wages wages of six
seven and eight dollars a week for
the head of a family working ten
hours a day, and that is something
that they have not been able to for
get and these Republicans began to
wonder if they had been deceived
all these years concerning the
claim that high tariffs raised wages.
In the years to come these Re
publicans will wonder at the years
they sat in darkness. Why was it
they could not realize when the
fortunes of these woolen manufac
tures grew from thousands to mil
lions and then more millions were
added on top nt that, th it the tar
iffs were for the benefit of the mo
nopolists and not for the wage
workers who all remained poor, al
though they toiled unceusingly from
year to year. St. Joseph Observer.
