Wcri.v- .'t'aiiiot Democratic j
TI'C r:. f m ls iiun New York, from ,'
th.' ollkeis of the Turriff Reform j
club, a warning that the promise of j
tarrifr reform i.s in danger of not be- ;
ing carried our, becitise week-kneed :
Democrats ar influenced by their ;
own interests to demand the reten
tion of protective duties, especially :
with regard to the agriculture sched
ule. The members who come from
farming sections are generally in- j
clined to insist that duties ou food
products shall notjbe abandoned.
Perhaps this alarming suggestion
of the Turriff Reform club officers
is wholly gratuitous. Perhaps it
alarms the New York end of this j
organization to think that some
favoritism may be shown the west
ern farmer by the tariff regulators.
However, there are few westerners
who have any conception that any
tariff ever laid upon the productions
of the farmers ever netted the far
mers anything, and they are going
to refuse to get alarmed upon the
However, the Democratic Con
gress is under a pledge to reduce
the tariffs to a revenue basis. The
dominant party, which now has
control of senate, house, and White
house, has been elected upon its
declaration that a tariff for protec
tion is indefensible and unconstitu
tional. It is under pledge to make
the necessities of life cheaper
through reductions of the tariffs.
To fail to carry out this pledge
would be to invite defeat in the next
national election, just as it was the
failure of the Taft administration to
fulfill its pledges for tariff reduction
that made it odious and led to its
repudiation by Republicans.
Another pledge that Eomctimes
seems'in danger of non-fulfillment
is that relating to the granting of
independence to the Filipinos.
Democrats actuated by sinister pur
poses have endeavored to create a
sentiment against it President
Taft has shown desperate zeal to
deter Democrats from carrying out
that pledge. Here is the wording
We condemn the experiment in
imperialism as an inexcusable
blunder, which has involved us in
enormous expense, Drought usi
weakness instead of strength, and '
laid our nation open to the charge'

doctrine of sell-government. We
favor an immediate declaration of
the nation's purpose to recognize
the iridt pewit nee of the Philippine
islands as soon as a stable govern
ment can be established, such inde
pendence to be guaranteed by us
until the neutralization of the is
lands can be secured by treaty with
It is in pursuance of that pledge
that the Democrats have given
credence to a measure introduced
by Mr. Quezon, commissioner from
the Philippine islands. This bill
provides for the gradual conferring
of the electorate upon the people
until at the end of eight years they
shall be given complete independ
ence. It is for the defeat of this
bill that President Taft pleads.
Meantime Mr. Quezon has estab
lished a magazine at Washington
under the title, "The Filipino Peo
ple" as an exponent of Philippine
independence, and promises to be
about as much to sustain Demo
cratic fidelity to the party plat
form pledge as even President Taft
can hope to do to discourage it.
Democratic pledges will be ful
filled. St. Joseph Observer.

The Wilson Idea is Right.
Senator Francis Wilson, of Platte
county, is the author of a "bob
white" bill, the obect of which is to
prevent the killing of quail for three
years. There is a growing senti
ment over the state that a quail in
a farmer's orchard or field is worth
more to the community than in a
pot-6hotter's stomach. The Wilson
idea prevailed in the upper house

Stone Has Not Forgot to Fight.
Senator William J. Stone has an
nounced that he will be candidate
for the senate in 1914, and there is
probably no man in the state who
can defeat him. Senator Stone has
been a tireless worker for Democra
cy, and is in a position of great
usefulness to the party and his
state. The senate is a slow-moving
body, and a new man is nothing
more than a figure-head. Senator
Stone, of Missouri, is now one of the
leaders of the senate and should

This is Not Bad Advice.
The valuable man in the Mis
' souri legislature will be the man
who will vote NO on all but a few

the crank measures were passed
that are proposed, the entire system
of running the state would be torn
up from top to bottom and then no
man would know what were the
laws of the state. Cut out the
crank measures. That country is
