that the fault is not the newspapers.
. Newspapers are very fallible insti

of a president.
Why a Tariff War?
If a tariff war develops .between this
country and Canada, and the same is
almost certain, goods shipped into the
United States from Canada will be
not only subject to the already high
Payne-Aldrich rates, but to an addi
tional duty of 25 per cent ad valorem
as well. Canada will then assess
against American' products it3 regular
tarifT rates, together with an addi
tional tax of one-third of the regular
And that la not all. It is within the
power of the Dominion government,
or the .government of some of the
provinces, to prohibit entirely the ex
port to this country of certain of
their products. Already pulp wood,
wood pulp and print paper are marked
for the exercise of that power. And
nickel also. Such action will affect
first the printing industry in this
'country in many of its most important
branches, especially newspapers, and
second, the steel industry, in which
nickel plays a most important part.
More than half .of our dutiable Im
ports are of lumber, the total being
above $23,000,000 in 190S. Under the
tariff law the duty on lumber is $1.23
per 1,000 feet. Under the war rates
there will "be added 23 per cent ad
valorem, or, on a basis of $20 per
1,000, an additional duty of $5.
.- Outside of possibly the lumber
-trust, who in the United States will be
benefitted by this kind of a war? And
how long will the American people
allow hostilities to continue?
Cannon Still Leading Issue.
.Cannon and Cannonism are still
destined to be two of the leading
issues in the approaching congres
sional campaign. The people will be
asked, in the November elections, to
reverse the decision of the present
house of representatives, which, by a
vote of 191 to 155, Bquarely endorsed
Cannon and Cannonism by refusing to
declare the office of the speaker va
cant and elect a new speaker.
And this situation exists wholly by
decree of the so-called republican "in
"surgents," who, when placed in a po
sition when they were forced to either
vote for or against Cannonism, voted
- The situation is clear-cut. There is
no opportunity to fool the "folks at
home" through technicalities. Only
nine republican insurgents are in a
position to stand before their constitu
ents and declare: "I stand against
Cannonism." All other republicans
are on record here in Washington as
being for Cannon and Cannonism.

and Aldrichism. Aldrlch antTAldrich

The opportunity to take Cannon and
and Cannonism, as issues, from the on
coming campaign presented itself In
the house when, on last Saturday af
ternoon. Representative Burleson of
Texas presented the following resolu
"Resolved, That the office of speak
er of the house of representatives is
hereby declared vacant, and the house
of representatives shall at once pro
ceed to the election of a speaker."

"Had the insurgents stood by us on
the vote to declare the chair vacant,"
said Minority Leader Champ Clark in
a statement issued to the pre.ss asso
ciations, "Cannonism, with all the
name Implies, would have been as dead
as the men who lived before the flood.
As it is, the Issue of Cannonism sur
vives in full force, for, as sure as a
gun is made of iron, if the republicans
elect a majority of the next house, Mr.
Speaker Cannon will be reelected
"In the public mind Mr. Cannon and
Cannonism are absolutely synonymous.
They cannot be disassociated by any
sort of incantation or legerdemain. We
have, in this victory, simply scotched
Cannonism, not killed it, and the net
result i3 that the people, if they really
desire to do away with Cannonism,
must do so by electing a democratic
house. That's the only way known
among men by which to accomplish
that result a consummation devoutly
to be wished." '
From a political standpoint. Repre
sentative Albert S. Burleson of Texas
made a master move when he intro
duced his resolution providing for the
unseating of the speaker and the
electing of a new speaker. He forced
the Insurgents to go on record as to
their real attitude toward Cannonism.
Mr. Burleson is one of the leaders on
the democratic side of the house, and
his action in introducing the measure
referred to won him the praise of prac
tically every democratic member of
"The democrats," said Mr. Burleson
in reviewing the exciting events of
March 19, "could not have afforded to
pass over the challenge thrown down
to them by Speaker Cannon when he
offered to entertain a motion looking
to the election of a new speaker. If
we had run away from the trial the
republicans would have gone back to
their constituents and have said: 'We
have revised the rules and put the
speaker off the rules committee. This
proves we have not endorsed Speaker
Cannon.' But now they cannot make
such statements to their constituents,
for the democrats have forced them to
go on record, again endorsing Speaker
Cannon and Cannonism."

The Argus Daily Short Story
Saved from a Madhouse By Daisy Winslow.
Copyrighted. 1910, by Associated Literary Presa. .
How I saved Herbert and brought
him out with a strong brain and in ev-
ery way physically sound is so strange
a case that it should be placed in writ
ing before I forget any of the details.
I do not mean that I did the thinking
and the planning that saved him, but
that had it not been for me no think
ing or planning would ever have been
done and Herbert would have died
under the strain or lived a lifetime
In a madhouse.
Herbert and I were first playmates,
then schoolmates: then the status be
tween us was that of a strong friend
ship between a very young man and
a very young woman, nis mother, a
rich widow, from the first disapproved
of our intimacy, for her son would In
herit her vast estate, while I had
nothing. But neither Herbert nor I
at that time thought of marriage.
When he was eighteen his mother
died, leaving him all her property to
be paid to him when he became of
age. Ilia brother, Edgar Holt, was ap
pointed executor of the estate and
Herbert's guardian. There were oth
er features of the will whjch had we
known earlier would have Eaved Her
bert a deal of suffering. Not knowing
them, we were working in the dark.
Mr. Holt, nn old bachelor, on the
death of his sister went to live with
his ward, taking personal care of him.
I could not see any necessity for this,
for Herbert was at an age when he
should have been at college. Yet this
uncle kept him at home, doing noth
ing. I asked Herbert why be assented
to this, and he said it was better for
him not to antagonize his uncle till
after be had attained his majority.
Some time after Mrs. Torry's death
Herbert sent me a note asking me to
come and see him. He gave no reason
for the request; but, thinking h might
be ill, I went at once. I was taken
by the housekeeper to a suit of rooms
he occupied and found him lying on a
lounge, the picture of despondency.
"Why. Herbert," I exclaimed, "what
Is the matter?"
"I don't know," he said mournfully.
Never had I seen such a change in
any one in so short a space of time.
I had been with him a week before,
and he was then perfectly well. Now
he seemed to have gone far on the
way to become a nervous wreck.
"What a singularly decorated room!"
I said to him after he had told me
about himself. The wall paper was
purple, and the shades and curtains to
the windows were red. There was
something in the colors or combination
of colors that made me feel a strange
"Uncle Edgar had my rooms redec
orated while I was away recently.
How do you like the paper?"
"I don't like it at ail," I replied.
I encouraged Herbert as well as I
could and when I left promised to re
turn soon. I went straight to our own
family physician. Dr. Millard, and told
him all about Herbert's case. Inci
dentally I mentioned the decoration of
"Get him out of that at once," said
"Because if he lives surrounded with
those colors and none other for a
month he'll be a maniac."
I sent a note to Herbert the same
evening telling him that the doctor
had recommended other rooms for
him, and the next afternoon I went
to see him. I found him where I had
left him the day before. I asked him
why be had not moved, and he said
his uncle had declared Dr. Millard's
statement to be nfl"""- 1 beesed

OGOTA, COLOMBIA. Riotous
mobs 'have succeeded in stopping
the operations of the Bogota
City Railway Company, and now
the Colombian employes of the com
pany, terrorized by the crowds, have
refused to make further efforts to
move the cars. The American lega
tion, which was stoned some days ago,
is protected by the local authorities
and Minister Northcott Is doing all In
his power to bring the troubles to
an end. The Bogota City Railway
Company is composed of Americans
who received a concession from former
President Reyes. The granting of
the con cession proved very unpopular,
and the rioting, directed against the
Herbert to do as I asked him, but he
did not seem to have the power to re
sist his uncle.
I was very much distressed when I
left him, not knowing what to do. On
the stairs I met Mr. Holt. He stopped
me and said:
"My nephew is under my guardian
ship till be comes of age. You will
oblige me by not coming here again
to make him dissatisfied with arrange
ments I have made for him. His
mother warned me against your de
signs to pet him and his property."
In a rage I went out of the bouse
vowing never to enter it again. But
I had not been gone ten minutes
before a suspicion came Into my head
that the man was trying to kill Her
bert by keeping him under the Influ
ence of these colors. Going to Dr. Mil
lard. I told him of what had happened.
"Go to the inheritance court." he
said, "and ask them to show you Mrs.
Torry's will. Then we will know what
to do next."
I did as he advised, was shewn the
will and discovered that in the event
of Herbert's death his estate would
all go to Edgar nolt.
The discovery filled me with horror.
But now since I knew that the execu
tor had a motive for getting his neph
ew out of his way I hoped that I
might defeat "his purpose. I saw his
plan. There was no necessity for him
to murder Herbert with the risk of
discovery. His object was to make
a hopeless lunatic of blm. which would
give the executor continued control of
the estate til! his ward's death, when
he would inherit it. I returned to
Dr. Millard, who, after I had told him
of my discovery, sat thinking for a
time before he spoke.
"It's a very plain case to us." he
said at last, "but a verjr difficult one
to handle. I have never heard or read
of so wily a plan to rob an heir of an
estate. While the damage is being
done there is no way to get the boy
out of his uncle's hands. After it Is
done there is no way of convincing a
jury of the perpetrator's guilt."
I was in agony at bearing the doctor
say this and begged him to try to think
of some way of preventing poor Her
bert from being made a maniac.
"I'll try," be said, "bufcan't as yet
see any method likely to succeed.
Heirs have been kept in lunatic asy
lums before this who have been in
perfect mental condition. That's an
old story. Here is a case where a
man is to be made really mad without
any one being able to get him out of
his persecutor's clutches. The law is
slow, and it will require but a monvh
to drive the subject hopelessly Insane.
Besides, I understand that nearly one
half of that time has been spent."
"Great heavens!" I exclaimed. "We
have only a fortnight."
"Less than that. In a fortnight the,
case will be hopeless. Even now we
can get no help from the patient him
self. He is too far gone. I see but
one chance, and that is to kidnap him."
I left the doctor, plan after plan run
ning through my brain whereby to
carry out his suggestion. I thought
many hours before I decided what to
do. When I made up my mind It
seemed to me that my method was
very simple, though this was no rea
son why it should succeed. I resolved
not to take any one Into my confidence
to help me, fearing to complicate mat
ters, and believed that I could do all
My plan was to put on a bold front,
call for Herbert with an automobile,
ask him to go for a ride, take him
a wax and conceal him, All dDBdad
upon his being permitted to come with
me. Had it not been for certain hap
penings he would not have been so
permitted, these being first that his
uncle had gone to bis office, and the
housekeeper who had charge of Her
bert in his absence had Jeft it for ten
minutes to buy a spool of thread. It
Is singular that Herbert's sanity should
havedepended on a spool of cotton,
but it did. I drove up to the house
two minutes after the housekeeper
had left it and was driven away with
nerbert just as she approached the
house on her return. I can see her
look of consternation now. But be
fore she could do anything we were
spinning away from her.
I said nothing to Herbert as to my
intention till we had been out two
hours. I supposed Mrs. Bugle would
telephone Mr. Holt as to what had oc
curred, but he had no reason to sup
pose that I was doing more with his
nephew than giving him a ride, and
he would probably wait a reasonable
time for my return. . Nevertheless I
followed a torturous course to throw
him off the track if he followed me.
The change in Herbert after bis re
moval from the noxious colors Dd
partaking of plenty of fresh air was
marvelous. He was not by any means
himself, but be was near enough him
self for me to tell him what his uncle
was trying to do and that I was kid
naping him in order to save him from
There was some response more than
I conU have expected In so short a
time and after awhile he grew eager
to escape what he was now beginning
to realize, urging me to go faster and
faster ill. In order not to oppose him,
I had on full speed, though I knew of
"We had started on our ride at 10
o'clock. At 1 we stopped at a road
house for luncheon and by 2 were
again under way. By this time Her
bert was so far restored that I left
our future course to him.
"Have you arranged for any place
to take me?" he asked.
"Very well; we will go to B. I know
a place there kept by one I can de
pend upon not to betray me, a quiet
place in which to hide, though now
that I am myself and my own master
ail will be different."
Nevertheless he seemed to dread get
ting back under the horrible spell that
had enthralled him. To draw his mind
away from it I told him that I did not
fear pursuit, for his uncle would not
know on what road to follow.
"That's not the situation at all," he
replied. "He can telephone to differ
ent places along the road, describing
us, and order us held till he can get on
with papers for our arrest." j
This appalled me. i
"As my guardian," Herbert went on j
hurriedly, "he has a legal right to my j
care that is, if he can prove me ill or';
of unsound mind. You must assume j
the position of my legal custodian."
"Certainly. But how?"
"We must be married as soon as we
can find any one to tie the knot."
"It's the only way to save me."
"But I have never thought of you
In that way."
"No, matter. Either I must go back
to my uneie to be driven mad by him
or made away with by some other
means or my legal guardianship must
be transferred. There's a church."
With a fluttering heart I slowed up
at a small house, evidently the parson
age. We went inside, and ten minutes
from the time Herbert proposed to mc
I was his wife.
"Now," he exclaimed, with a sigh of
relief, "the law is all on our side."
"Herbert." I said as we were merrily
spinning along after the ceremony. "I
never thought to take a wedding trip
in an automobile."
"Herbert." I said again after consid
erable time. "I'm glad we're married."
"Are you? Why?' '
"That old villain said I was trying
to get you. He'li think that's the rea-.
6on I outwitted him." J
"Spoken like a woman." J
