The theft of an automobile is a
comparatively easy thing to accom
plish and increasing numbers of suci
thefts are being daily re)orted. Steal
ing of automobiles has come to be a
systematized business in some sec
tions and stringent methods need to
be 'tdoptd to reduce this sort of
crime. Short s:ntences and small
fines (1o not deter the criminal class
es from taking chances on such an
easy method of gaining a livinz and
heavier sentences need to be passed
ii pon them. When a man faces a long
penitentiary sentence, he Is less like
ly to try his hand at such a game.

W. W. Long. director of extension al
Clemson college. is seeking to havi
the tariff of $2p inr ton on potash re
moved on the grond that the farmer,
of only a few states must foot th(
bill. lie says that if an infant indus,
try needs -,rotection, the entire na
tion rather than a few states shoil
hear the expenze and advocates a
sIuhsidy rather than a tariff. Mr
Long is of course right as to Iotasi
and the same thing applies to all oth
er prodlucts that the Republican tarif
makers Wouod protect. The tariff al
lows the manufacturers. mostly ii
the north, to charge the farmers an
the zeneral pubie more than tles
irchasers woul( have to pay fo
fereign made goods and they get II
benefit in retuirn. The tariff maker
are ini the saddle. however, and ther
is little use to complain. The 1iro
gram of robbery is already laid out.

Mr. Wilson is far from a well man
today; he was far from a well man
when he entered the White House
over eight years ago. But during the
last two years there have been times
when his voice was inaudible and
when lie could not support himself
alone. His condition today shows
more improvement than his family
and friends dared hope for.
