Some Hi-publicans in Minnesota and
other states bordeiiiii: on Canada are
very anxious for reciprocity with Can
ada. The American Kcotiomist. Low
ever, denounces this reciprix-ity as "a
means of adding to the prolits of the
Uiiilers. the jobM-rs and tlje railroads'
and "a seltish, s-nst-less scheme- of
:-heaieninjr the domestic market for
'arm products." The Keonomist also
claims "it would break down the price
of wheat at Minneapolis, and for pre-
2iM-ly that effect and for that reason
the Minneapolis milling corporations
und the Twin "ity daily newspapers
are ur'In reciprocity with all their
might and main."
As every farmer knows, this crude
reasoning is based on the supposition
that the price of wheat i fixed in
Minneapolis according tt the amount
tf wheat reeivi-d there. I'.i:t the
farts are that the jrU-t- ot wleat is
controlled by the combined crops of
the world and the demand lor the sur
plus after our own and otht-r home
markets are supplied. Those co intr'.es
like I'nsrland whioli do not raise
enough wheat to supply their own
people buy what they need from the
I'nited States. India. Argentina. litis-
fcia or Jitiy other country that has a
f.urplus to sell. The demand for that
surplus lixes the price of wh-.-at all
over the world, Jiti-I the Canadian
wheat has but a tdisht inlhicne to
raise or lower It. If the Canadian
wheat does not come through Min
neapolis, where mot of it would be
pround liti tlour in Auierican miils. it
would be shipped to eastern Canada
and either made into Hour there or
fdiippei! direct to Knirland. In any
event the most of It reaches I'nl.titd
and competes in rculatim; the price
that is'paid the world over.
The American farmer has been badly
treated by the protectionist-.. He has
to pay hii.li tariff prices for ail he
buys and has but little protection on
what hi raises. The Keonomist knows
this and must bolster up its protection
fallacies by its pretended anxi.-ty for
the Aaierican farmer. The Protective
Tariff league, which supplies the mon
ey t publish the Keonomist. is com
posed of eastern manufacturers, most
of whom are now organized into trusts
and combines, which are bleed. m: the
farmer at every pore, and their anxie
ty, expressed through their org.in, the
Keonomist. for tin protection of the
farmer is like the love of the lion for
the Iaml-to make a good meal of.
Tliis contention among the Republic
an protect ioiii-ts on the virtue of reoi-priM-ily.
which, by the way. was fa
vored by Iliaine and urged by MeKiit
ley and was part of the political creed
of I'residfit Iloosevclf indil the "stand
patters" forced him to yield tu their do
iiotlflni; policy, is favored by many Re
publicans who see that protection can
not long exist unless some of its bar
riers to trade are lowered.
The I lomoerrits may accept reciproc
ity as a weans to break down protec
tion, hut it is not the Democratic way
of curing the evil of monopoly. When
the farmeiK are relieved from trust
exactions by the tariff being reformed
so that the trusts can no longer charge
them much higher prices here than the
same trust productions are sold for
ii broad, the wheat problem will be set
tled at the same time. All the fanner
wants i: to be allowed to buy in tin?
Cheapest market and sell in the best
market that the world affords. The
fanner, with the trusts removed from
his back, which are now riding him to
his undoing, will then have eipial
rights with the monopolists, who are
now enjoy ;ag special privileges at his

Just offered two resolutions of inquiry
which, while directed at Attorney ;en
cral Knox, are really a prod to the
whole lloosevclt administration for its
refusal to prosecute the trusts.
Due of these resolutions virtually
nsks why the criminal clause of the
Sherman antitrust law Is not being ap
Ilied to the rich ollicials of the North
crn Securities company, who by the
Riipreme court decision art? shown to
he criminals. Why an; those found
Rtiilty not being indicted?
The other resolution asks Mibstan
tially why the attorney general has
not made use of the evidence put in
his possession a year and a half ago
showing clearly that the anthracite
coal trust is an illegal combination.
The attorney general Is the only per
fcon who can hiring suit against n trust.
Why does not he follow up the nomi
nal victory won against the Northern
Securities company? Why docs Le has
ten to assure the trusts that he will
not "run amuck" in enforcing the law
against trusts? Is It not clearly lo
calise the Republican party does nt
dare to antagonize the trusts at any
time anil especially on the eve of a
presidential election? When wor 1
they get campaign funds if they w-e
to make enemies of the trust magnates?

"Irvin Is in the neighborhood again,
said the mayor, coming into police
"When? How? Where?"
My Knglish w as not correct, but the
mayor understood me.
"Yesterday noon he rode up to Ben
ton's bank at S.iuirrelton. shot the pay
ing teller. grabled a packago of bills
and was away lcfore any one realized
what had hapoened."
"Then he met a mounted policeman,
got a bead on him and forced him to
e,iv inm bis uniform. This, was near
Redmond, live miles to the kouth of us.
I want you to go out. hunt for him
and bring him In, dead or alive. You
know the reward $5.oUU."
' Yes. You can work letter by your
self than with a lot of bunglers."
"Right you are, and I'll go in uni
form. It'll be a shooting affair any
way, and I always feel better facing
a gun when I've got my togs on."
1 tracked Irvin by asking people If
they had seen a mounted policeman
ami came up with him while he was
Hotting along a country road. I shout
ed to him to stop, as I had something
to say to him. He cast a tpiicfc glance
at me. hesitated, then impatiently rein
ed in his horse. I didn't wish to kill
him If I could get him Into a trap and
disarm him. I rode up to him leisurely
"I see you're on the force. Where do
you hail from':"
"I'm from Stiuirrcltou; looking for
"Cet any trace of him?"
"One clew points to Sparksburg, an
other down there in the river bottom.
If you're looking for him you might go
one way while I go the other."
"All risht." I said to inspire confi
dence. "When we get to where the
road forks I'll go to the river bottom."
I'resently I drew rein and dismount
ed under pretense of tightening my
sail lie girth. 1'rom behind my horse
I drew my revolver and. bringing it to
bear on him before he could see what
I was about, called on him to surren
der. He had to choose between two forms
of death-my bullet or tli" gallows.
With the former there war. a slender
chance, with the latter none whatever.
Rending low behind his horse's neck,
he gave him a cut and dashed off. fol
lowed by my sdiots. Meanwhile I
mounted and weut after him. Now
and again he turned and -tired at me.
but I got down tlat on my horse, and
there was not much for liim to shoot
at. Finally I tired a slrt that made
him tetter; then he fell from the sad
dle. I w::s beginning to draw rein
when my horse, on crossing n rotten
covering to a culvert, broke through,
and I went living through the air, land
ing about fifty feet from Irvin. My
revolver flew- to a point at the side of
the road between us. though a triile
nearer to him than to me. I started
up. when I got a twinge that laid me
out again. My leg was broken.
As somi as I could think of anything
except the pain I raised my head and
saw Irvin crawling on his stomach to
ward my weapon. He had moved only
a few feet, and his progress was so
slow that it would take him some time
to reach it. Kvldently he had either
parted with his own weapon or had
discharged all t!e cartridges. I saw
at once that it was a question of life
or death w ith me to secure the revolv
er myself ami began a crawling which
was no more rapid than that of my
Kvery now ail again I would hear
a sman from Irvin. which was usually
echoed by one from me. Irvin made
ten feet while I was making six. then
he stopped, took out a handkerchief
and. binding it around his leg. twisted
It with his knife as a tourniquet. While
he was thiing this he was watching me.
who made ten fit-t while he was at
work with his surgical apparatus.
Starting again, be was handicapped by
having to hold the tourniquet, which he
had no means of fixing permanently.
Nevertheless desperation gave him
strength, and he made better headway
than I. It was singular, this tortoise
race between two fellow beings with
life for the prize, death for the forfeit.
Several times I thought I should faint,
but knew if I did I would probably
never return to consciousness. I there
fore ner veil myself to keep my senses
ii ml continue on my way. Rut in live
minutes I did not make live feet, nor
did Irvin do much better.
Presently Irvin stopped and calculat;
cd his own and 'my distance.
"What do you say to a rest, parcl?"
"There's no rest for the wicked," I
replied without ceasing my efforts.
"Very well. You'll get one pretty
soon. Since I stopped the flow of blood
I've ceased to lose strength. I can see
you're giving out pretty fast. I only
proposed the truce lieeause I didn't
like to see you suffer."
There was now about ten feet for
lnith of us. ami I felt sure that despite
his plucky words Irin was bleeding
from an artery, and. though I was ex
pecting to lose consciousness every mo
ment. I pusheil on. I reached the
weapon while he was yet t hree feet
away and put out my hand for it. The
effort was too muh f jr me p fainted.
When I eame to myself Irvin was
where I had last scon him. stone dead.
His ashen face 'as toward me. Lis
glassy eye staring at mine, his right
hand extended toward the pistol, which
I was grasping. I lookel at the cham
ters and found, to my surprise, that
they had all leen discharged. There
rui not a bullet In a ay of them.
