Trusts All Powerful.
The "Iowa Idea" has been over
throw u :'.:e state of iu blrtb. as far
as the Republican leaders can do so.
At the state convention to elect dele
gates to tbe national convention the
platform adopted was of the stand pat
order, though there wa.sa considerable
objecting minority. The same tactics
were employed as in the Republican
state convention of Massachusetts,
where Senator Lodge told those dele
gates who were demanding reciprocity
with Canada that their place was in
the Democratic party. If tbe propor
tion of delegates in either of these con
ventions that favored tariff revision
are backed up by the same per cent of
voters, there are more than enough to
turn those strong Republican states
over to the Democrats if they elect to
The trusts are now competing in
many foreign markets against these
foreign products that the protection
ists fear, and are evidently undersell
ing the foreigners, or the trusts would
not export their products there. To
red ne or abolish the tariff on these
trusts products would not therefore
allow- the foreign products to be im
ported here, for the freight and
charges alone would be a barrier. Of
course the trusts under a 10 jer cent
tariff would have to reduce their
prices 30 or 40 per cent to meet these
new conditions, and the consumer here
would gain that much.
There may be some industries here
which would need greater protection
for a time and the tariff on articles
of luxury' would still be continued and
perhaps increased. For instance, the
tariff rate on diamonds is now 10 per
cent, there is no reason why it should
not le GO per cent. The tariff rate on
refined sugar is about 50 Ier cent,
there is no good reason why it should
not be reduced to in per cent, except
that the enormous profits of the sugar
trust would be decreased. Would that
ruin the country or reduce wages?
The platforms of the Republican
state conventions adopted this year
show that the trusts and corporation-
have more Influence with the leaders
than the voters of that party have, for
in every state except Idaho the plat
forma declare for protection and for
what has come to be known as "stand
pat." The Republican national conven
tion will make a live declaration. There
fore those Republican voters who be
lieve that the tariff shelters trusts
will, for their own salvation, aid in the
election of the Democratic ticket.

DAILY SHORT STORY
Love in a Garden.
.Copyright, 130. by Jl. B. Sheiton.j
It was airoomy, old fashioned garden.
Its walks' were bordered with low
hedges of box: hollyhocks and four
o'clocks bloomed in profusion; a bed of
sweet willlam spiced the, air. and tufts
of striped grass rustled pleasantly iu
In the midst of the garden was n
huge coloidal house of red brick. The
house, the, garden and the high brick
wall gaw one the iiiiprvssitm of a bit
of another century, quietly but stolidly
holding fits own against the inroads of
a latter slay comusericlallsm. Just be
yond they gate the trolley cars clanged,
and overt the high wsull were vistas of
smoking chimneys towTiiiLT heaven
ward. TLe hum of loom and spindle
seemed stranuely antagonistic when
one stood near the sweet William bed
and listened to the clatter.
Some aroch thought ibad taken osses
ajoa of Mr. James Thornton as he
stepped UhroiiKh tike high, white gate
that led from the street and strolled
down a box lined ipa til. At the very
moment ''Thornton Inula tebed the gate
Miss JanetVCalverti came from beneath
a wistaria trellis near the house and
entered thetotber'end of the same iox
lined path. They met near the bid of
mignonette. Miss Calvert Ihjwh1 with
something of condescending gracions
ness; Thornton removed his hat. and
his rather stern features lightid with
a smile of genuine pleasure.
At this juncture theUlttle god entered
the garden. (How be -managed his en
trance is quite luunaterJaJ.) He perch
ed himself on a ruined sundial aud
looked over the pair thoughtfully.
Young Miss Janet warn good to be

her head, the beautiful modeling Of her
features, the bewitching arch of her in

Thornton was young, sturdy and
broad shouldered. The clear CUt' lines
of his dean shaven face pronounced
him an aggressive man of action.
"I am glad the house went to you

Miss Calvert, with a little catch of
"When I used to shake down horse
chestnuts iu this very garden for a
little pink and white tyrant, I was
Jimmy," he said chldingly.
"Jimmy, if you wish it still, then,"
she said, with the faintest flush.
"I do." he asserted eagerly. 'Hie
little god snickered and pricked up his
"you'll build u big. unsightly block
here, I Mippose," she said.
"So." he said quietly.
She raised her brows inquiringly.
"The land is very valuable," she sug
gested. "Too valuable for business purjioses,"
"Is anything more valuable than
business'.'" she askiil. with the barest
touch of irony in her voice.
"Yes." said he; "sentiment."
"Isn't sentiment rather an expensive
luxury?" she asked.
"Xot In dollars and cents." he re
plietl. "In other ways quite so."
T didn't know you were si senti
mentalist." she said.
"I'm not," he rvturnod shortly.
The little god scratched his head in
"You came hen today for a last look
sit the place. I presume." he went on.
"Are you angry with uie for buying
it?" he sisked.
"Oh, no! It had to be somebody,
but-well, of course. I'm very fond of
"You thought I'd shut you out of It
perhaps?" he continued.
"I thought you might change it," she
' Well. I shan't." he said emphatic
The little god was uncertain whether
he should smile or frown.
"Everything shall be kept just as it
is." Thornton ssiid.
The girl was silent.
"I want the house just as it was,"
he said. "Yes. even to the occupants.
I want you to live here again."
She shook her head. "It's your house
now. you know."
"With me," he pleaded in a low,
"Oh, no, no. no." she snid in almost
n sob. "Don't!" as he came a step
nearer. "You are good and kind and"
He drew himself up.
"Forgive me for being a fool." he
said coldly. I was idiotic enough to
think that because yon hsive met with
misfortune and I with a little paltry
success the gulf between us was less
ened. You are still the little pink sind
white tyrant, and I am still the ragged
little urchin. I worshiped you from a
respectful distance then. Perhaps it is
better to do so now."
He turned on his heel and walked
down the path. The little god on the
sundial covered his eyes.
Miss Calvert's condescending gra
clousness had fallen from her. The
ptoud oise of her head had gone too.
She watched him go with eyes widen
suddenly filled with tears. She took sin
uncertain step in Thornton's direction.
Mr. Thornton." she called weakly.
The little god suddenly uncovered his
eyes and sat up. Thornton walked
steadily toward the gate.
"Mr. Thornton Jimmy! Oh. Jimmy!"
Thornton turned. He saw her com
ing toward him. He stared stupidly
like a man suddenly awakened.
"I oh. I thought It was because you
pitied me only. I didn't understand,"
she said falteringly.
"Janet." he said hoarsely as he took
her In his arms.
The little god on the sundial held his
sides and wept tears of merriment.
