GEORGE F. HENSHALL MANAGER THURSDAY JULY 1, 1909 Lorrin Andrews made a very capable attorney general when in office before, and many friends will gladly welcome him back to local official life. The London suffragettes were released from prison without bail, This probably was done with a view to depriving them of the chance to pose as martyrs. It appears that these agitators arc actually anxious to go to jail to advertise their cause. x Even the fact that Judge Woodruff was not coming here at once was preserved in the profound secrecy of the local executive cham bers. It is true that United States Judge Dole expected him antl that attorneys who arc to have business before him would like to have" known when to expect him. But when the fact of his not having arranged to come at once was lodged in the records of the executive department, it was a secret as secure as if it had been wb'ipcred softly in the unresponsive ears of the Sphinx, . to be revealed only when its stoney lfps shall move to utterance. PARTIES BEING DIVIDED. 7 President Taft's utterances of yesterday show that as a Rqmblican leader he is beginning to Gc concerned over the prospect that the long promised tariff revision shall prove to be an increase rather than a decrease intariff schedules. "Where did we ever make the statement that we would revise" the tariff downward?" asked Ahlrich, Republican boss of the Senate, in a debate last month, and Senator Lodge remarked that he was no more pledged to a revision downward than to a revision upward. Against these remarks can he quoted Taft's own plain campaign declarations that the tariff rates were ex cessive and ought to be lowered. Yet the prospect of lowering them is not at all good. Whatever be the final result, the Democratic party will not be in a. position to mafic much of an attack upon the Republicans on tlie tariff isstic. It is with the aid of Democratic Senators' votes that tariff rates arc being kept up or raised, and insurgent Republicans are attacking the rates quite as much as arc Democrats. In this sit uation Uhe Democrats are far worse off than the other side. The Re publican "nlatform merely declared for revision; without stating wheth er it should be up or down. The Democratic platform in so many words demanded immediate repeal of the tariff on many articles,,' arid in the face bl such" a declaration a majority of the Senate Democrats have voted to. retain the duty. amount of 166,060.000 pounds. In 1007-8 the; export of flour well' to less than one-half of earlier exportations, and there was only one-fifth oi uie couon cxponcu 10 uiuua ami one-nan 10 japan in compari son with previous amounts. The same failure has attended America's attempt to control the freight and passenger trade, we arc told. To quote the Words of Dr.' Schttltzc: "For a long time after Perry oijened the Japanese ports ('853-54) the whole carrying-trade of Japan was prosecuted under American and English flags, Within the last twelve I ' years Japan has ships of her own plying between her ports and those of China, India, Australia, England and America." The Japanese shipping subsidy has done much to bring about; this state of things, and in 1906 some $4,000,000 was voted by their par liament for this purpose. I bus it appears that the tonnage of Jap anese shipping has risen from 477,430 in 1898 to 1,115,880 in 1907, and while in iSgSJapan had 35 per cent of the foreign trade, in 1907 she enjoyed 43 per' cent. Dr. Schultze sums up tlie situation as follows: "The prospects of American shipping in the Pacific are very poor. No one can, be accused of pessimism in declaring that they are actually nil. The high protective tariff which the United States maintains has raised the country to great wealth, but has also put both her industries and her shipping at a disadvantage in international competition. Manufactures are conducted In the United States with such high wages that ' v in a department where she is not benefited by protection, such as is the case" with shipping, she must be outdone by other nations. When she enters into competition with a country in which wages have sunk to the lowest limit, as in Japan, it is - impossible for the United States to overcome a rival." Yet it must be allowed, we are told, that the commerce and carrying-trade of Japan have been artificially inflated by government sub sidies. If these arc withdrawn, America may perhaps step in to sup plant Japan in the Pacific : "The United" States has, however, one faint glimmer of hope. Tlielnulc policy of Japan docs not rest upon an alto gether solid foundation. The subsidies which are paid to the navigation companies and shipbuilders may give a transient prosperity to these branches of industry, but .may fail to make their success permanent."

"WORKING" THE NEWSPAPERS. I Few people realize how much work, unrecognized, is done by the newspapers tree lor religious, charitable and other public purposes The newspaper that is unwilling to lend its aid to such purposes is rare indeed. Now and then there comes a bit of rebellion against the one-sided generosity, for often those most asking favors confine their connection with the newspapers fo astc'ng such favors. It was prob ably under a sense of the ingratitude of this sort of treatment that the editor of a prominent Mainland paper penned the following: Hereafter the News will not extend the use of its columns without charge to" any cause for which "the printing has not (r been done at one of the newspaper offices of the city. The people who do not' patronize the newspapers should not expect ' to receive courtesies from them. The newspapers do more 1 free work for the cause of religion, charity and the public 1 uplift than any other class of business is asked or expected to ' do, and they receive less in the way of appreciation and pat ronage. Hereafter, as far as the News is, concerned, people can get their notices where they get their printing done.
