The Underwood tariff of 1913 is a
A OtflM CrOTlS
free trade" secret-caucus measure.
The Southern members of Congress,
with the aid of Tammany, dictated
the provisions of the bill.
The northern and western farmers
who raise corn and hogs, pork and
beef, butter and eggs, can see by a
comparison of the rates under the
old and the new law, that their pro
ducts were put on the free list in
cqm petition with foreign countries
where low-priced lands are cultivat
ed and cheap labor employed; whilst
the rate of duty under the old law
was retained on tobacco for the bene
fit of the Southern tobacco growers.
The Southern rice growers are pro
tected by a duty of 1 cent per pound.
Ask yout congressman, who voted
for the Underwood bill, when he
comes home, why protection would
not be a good thing for the corn and
hog raiser of the north and west, if
it is a good thing for the tobacco
growers of Virginia, North Carolina,
Kentucky and Tennessee? Ask him
why protection would not be a good
thing for the butter and egg produc
ers of the north and west, if it is a
good thing for the southern rice
. I am in favor of an amendment to
the new tariff law restoring the duty
on farm products. Agriculture is
the leading industry of Kansas; and
should be protected.
The "free traders" claim that the
tariff is a burden upon the people be
cause it is added to the price of the
commodity upon which it is imposed.
If that theory is correct, the Amer
ican farmer will receive 25 per cent
less for his wheat under the tariff of
1913 than he did under the tariff of
Compare the rates of duty under
the old and tfce new law.
Then read tbe following table with
reference to the cash price of wheat

TO HERMAN LONG. CITY ATTORNEY
. AND CITY CLERK
Editor "Western Kansas "World : . I
will reply to an article which appear
ed in the Reporter of last week, that
the mayor and council had notified
the police judge' to appear before
that body on Monday evening to an
swer some questions concerning the
status of the Frank O'Neil case. -
The reason the police judge did not
appear before that honorable body
was tnat the honorable mayor and
council had no authority to cite the
police judge before them. If, they
wanted to know anything about this
case they should have yftome to the
office of the police judge.
These are the questions and an
swers that they wanted the police
judge to recognize. The questions
are by Mr. Herman Long; the an-'
swers are mine.

did you issue warrant for the. arrest
of Frank O'Neil? -

6. Was the continuance by consent
of parties or was it for good cause
shown to the court by the attorney
for the city? .
Answer It waa continued by re
quest of City Attorney Long on ac
count of the late hour. '
7. If the continuance was for good
cause shown to the -court, and not
with the consent of the defendant,
state what cause was shown for a
continuance and how it waa shown
Answer On account- of the late
hour, and also for .procuring wit
nesses. 8. Did you suggest the giving of
an appearance bond by the defendant,
and' if so what amount of bond did
- Answer I asked Mr.' O'Neil if he
coula give bond and he said that he
did not and wanted to go to trial im
mediately. 9. At the time of this continuance

as a criminal whom it was dangerous
to allow to run at large?
4 Answer Yes; as he was crazy or
10. Had you prior to the time of
this continuance heard that O'Neil
had committed any offense for which
he ought to be prosecuted under any
of the criminal laws of the state? ,
Answer Yes, when the marshal
served warrant on him he took from
him a loaded revolver, and he showed
it to t he-court and Mr. Long. .
11. If so what -offense had you
then heard that he had committed?
Answer I heard of none only the
12. Did you approve of the contin
uance in this case without any ap
pearance bond from the defendant?
Answer Consented to it on the
advice of Mr. Long; I thought that
O'Neil should be committed to jail,
and I told Mr. Long so.
13. If not, why did you permit it
to be so done?
Answer On Mr. Long's advice; I
always took the advice of the - prose
cuting attorney while I was justice
of the peace. ' . .
In addition to the eighth question,
when I asked him to give- bond, he
said he would not give bond to any
- ' man. ."

To the Voter of Trego Counry . .
The primaries are over and I ac
knowledge my defeat which is mostly
due to my inability to see and form
the acquaintance of the voters of the
county on account of the sickness o,t
my family, and I want to thank all
those who supported me knowing you
did so with a clear conscience, and
especially do I want to thank the
ladies for their support. They have
certainly shown an interest and wis
dom in their first effort at the polls.
I wish also to extend my congratu
lations t Mr. Hillman and hope, if
elected at the general election, he.
will take the same interest in con
ducting the affairs of the office as I
had intended to do if elected, and I
assure you of the fact that there is
no soreness - on my part toward any
one; "I am a Democrat still, and
very still," - and I attribute my de
feat in the primaries to as above"
stated. - "
1 hope my friends will not feel dis- ,
appointed as the sacrifice' I have
made in meeting defeat is probably
small in comparison with the, disap
pointment to my supporters.
I am indeed proud of the support I
received after taking into considera
tion the advantages . of my opponent
and the many disadvantages of my ..
