Open Doors and Tariff.
.American insistence upon the open
door in the Orient emphasizes certain
truths of this country's present tariff
policy. Insistence upon the open door
virtually i a demand for the advan
tages of free and unrestricted trade
without a tender of the quid pro quo.
Thanks to the policy of republican
administrations, we are unable to of
fer the Oriental countries any in
ducement to do business with us. Pro
hibitive tariff rates confront them
when they in their turn attempt to in
vade our market. We, in effect and in
truth. .ay tu the Orient, "Give us free
and unlimited opportunity to sell our
trust-made goods at our own prices,
in return for which we will tax your
goods out of our market."
Canada. Germany, France and others
of the enlightened nations have re
jected this proposition so often that
we no longer possess, the audacity to
make it to. them. China, Manchuria
ami Korea are less sophisticated: we
may be able to come it over them.
Our highly respected' a ml civilized re
publican policy is to look for the best
of it. especially when dealing with
children, as it were. And sirice the
other powers cannot very well pre
vent us they join in what may be
termed properly enough the dismem
berment of Oriental trade.
From our standpoint it is nothing
less than "dealing with the natives."
Trust-owned ships loaded with trust
products. ride into the far Pacific ports
ami return with any sort of profits
that suits the fancy of the moment.
The brown denizens chatter with de
light as the trusts cheat them. The
trusts" operation, are on a par with
swapping trinkets for gold nuggets
aud the trusts operations are the op
erations of America as now governed.
Protection for themselves and free
trade as against the other fellow are
g;od enough for the American trusts.
Both to buy and sell at their own
prices is the cinch conferred by the
Dingley schedules, and conferred upon
the trusts alone. The American peo
ple as a whole can have no interest in
the open tloor proposition as it now
stands. Of ' course as a matter of
patriotism w like to see the country's
Irntle extended; but from our stand
point it is a 'sheer waste of statesman
ship to push the business of the
trusts. The trusts impose their own
prices on American farmers and vvork
ingmen. Then they like to get rid of
any surplus at lower prices to foreign
ers. The trusts themselves might, un
der, other circumstances, develop international-
trade relations which
would redound greatly to the Ameri
can consumer's advantage.
The American consumer could even
afford to m1roiie the trusts at coin
bie rates, provided the benefits of in
coming products at free trade prices
were accruing. And certainly the
American consumer is entitled, as an
academic proposition. to whatever
benefits the trusts foreign operations
might indirectly produce; for the
American consumer makes it possible
for the trusts to do business abroad:
makes it possible, by paying an extrt:
pi ice for home products, for the
tru.-t to invade even these foreign
realms which have set up retaliatory,
or "reciprocal." tariffs in a word, en

DAILY SMUKI btOKY
I was traveling out west looking for
a place to t-cttle. One evening I reach
ed a small town and Inquired the price
of land in the neighborhood. Every
person I met had a "leetle" more land
than he had means to work and would
be willing to dispose of some of it, but
all seemed to regard it a hardship to
be obliged to do so. While talking in
the store" with a number of citizens
who were expatiatiug on the desirabil
ity of the location, the richness of the
land, the sterling integrity of the peo
ple, I noticed a cadaverous looking man
seated on a cracker box who said noth
ing. When I left the store he got up
and followed me.
"Think of settling here, stranger?" he
"Know anything about the place?"
"Well. ' he said in a low voice and
looking furtively about him. "the
quicker you light out the better."
At the same moment he noticed two
men come out of the store, at whom
he cas, a hurried glance aud. before I
could ask him to explain, turned ami
I was not especially attracted to the
place and made up my mind from the
man's woi-ds to go on the next morn
ing, r would have left that night, but
no train slopped at the station till the
next morning, so I was obliged to stay
all night. I went to a small tavern,
the only one in the settlement, aud
called for a room. It was as unin
viting a hostelry as I ever stopped at.
The landlord looked as i he had left
the field of robbery to become a tavern
keeiier, or he might run the two to
gether. After supper I sat In the office and
barroom, which were together, waiting
for bedtime. Several ill favored look
ing men came in and ordered drinks.
Then the man who had given me the
mysterious wanting "entered. I spoke
to him and invited him to sit down be
side me and have a cigar. He cast un
easy glances at the men at the bar, as
if he preferred not to be seen in my
company, but the cigar overcame his
preferences, and he joined me.
"You were saying this afternoon," I
began, when he interrupted me.
"I wns a-sayin',"' he said, "that this
yero country is the finest in the terri
tory. The land is first rate, the people
bang up rnd the climate salubr'us."
It was evident that any information
he might have as to the true state of
affairs could not safely be delivered
before his fellow townsmen. I took the
hint and turned the subject, hoping
when we were alone he would tell me
the truth. I was disappointed. lie
kept casting glances at the men in the
room and after every glance trembled,
apparently fearful of some revenge
theyNvould take if they knew he had
warned me. Watching his chance when
all backs were turned, he whispered:
"Light out! Don't stop here! You'll
quake in yer boots before mornin"!"
With this he anise and went out.
I wns so fearful of being murdered
In bed that I went out on to a small
porch and srtt down, wondering what
In the world to do. While there, my
cadaverous friend walked by and. see
ing me alone, came close to me and
whispered: "Don't sit there if yon
value your life. Go upstairs and shet
yourself up." And he hurried away,
trembling as he went.
The situation was growing horrible.
According to the man's warning I
would be murdered where I was, and
if I went to my room I could be more
easily murdered or at least would have
le.s chance to defend myself or es
cape. I determined to sit It out where
I was. When the landlord caine to
lock the door I a:tid to him:
"I think I'll stay here for awhile.
I'll lock th? door when I cor.jc in."
He looked surprised. Indeed, my sit
ting there was evidently not to his
"Any danger in my sitting here?" I
"Danger? Oh. no. there ain't no dan
ger. What danger could there be?"
Though his norjy implied safety, his
tone and his manner implied the re
verse. I told him to go to bed, and 1
would come in when I got ready. He
did as I suggested, and I snt on the
porch all night with a drawn revolver,
expecting every minute to have to fight
for my life. Daylight came at last. I
was thoroughly chilled with the night
air. Indeed I was shaking like a leaf,
though I fancied fear might have had
something to do with it. In time break
fast was announced, and after break
fast I went to the station to wait for
my train. I had not beeu there long
liefore the man who had warned me
came down with a lean wife and three
lean children, besides boxes and bun
dles. "Please tell me," I said, "what was
the danger you warned 'me of last
Hush!" he replied.. "Here comes the
train. When we're off I'll tell you."
The train pulled up. I, the man and
his family got alionrd. and as w?
steamed along I joined him.
"Stranger," he said upon my repeat
ing my inquiry, "it's ager: ju?t ager.
The kentry's full of it. Me and my
family's all got it. I sold oat yesterday
and am leavin forever. Ef they'd
caught me given the place away they'd

"My friend. said I angrily, "you
scared me Into sitting out all night."
"Great Scott: You' didn't do tbat.

"Now I think of St. I believe I did."

GAME NEAR DYING
From an Awful Skin Humour.

CURED BY CUTICURA
One Application Soothed Him to
Sleep. Cure Speedy
" When my little boy was about three
months old his head broke out with a
rash, which was very itctiy and ran con
siderable watery fluid. We tried every
thing we could, but he got worse all the
time till it spread to his arms, legs, and
then to his entire body, and he got so
bad that he came uear dying. The rash
would Itch so that he would scratch till
the blood ran, and a tblu yellowish stuff
would be all over his pillow in the morn
ing. I had to put mittens on his hands
to keep him from tearing his skiu around
his wrists. He got so weak and run
down that he took fainting spells like
we would think him dying, lie was al
most a skeleton and his little hands
were thin like claws.
"He was bad about eight months
when we tried Cuticura Remedies. I
had not laid him down in his cradle in
the daytime for a loag time. He had
got so that he just slept in our arms all
the time. I washed him with Cuticura
Soap and put on oue application of
Cuticura Ointment and he was so
soothed that I put him iu the cradle.
Tou don't know how glad I felt when he
felt better. 1 1 took oue box of Cuticura
Ointment, pretty near one cake of Cuti
cura Soap, aud about half a bottle of
Cuticura Resolvent, to cure. I think
our little boy would have died only for
the Cuticura Remedies, and I shall al
ways remain a firm friend of them.'
