DeLUXE TAILORS PHONE 72 "WE CALL FOR AND DELIVER" The present tariff law is not a pro I tective measure but a prohibitive one. ; There "are arguments which may be ! advanced in favor of a protective . tariff but there are no arguments to i support a prohibitive tariff. In de j termining the rates for,this latest re publican tariff, the .rate which would be sufficient to furnish ample $rotec ; tion for American manufacturers was , doubled several times, in most cases. As a consequence, foreign goods can . not possibly compete with American j goods and furthermore American j manufacturers who are producing the ' favored goods are able to charge much more than a fair profit and still sell under the lowest possible price at which foreign goods might be offered. In thus prohibiting the importation j of foreign goods the administration j forces the American, consumer to buy I of the American manufacturer or go I without. The specially protected j interests are "sitting easy." Profits and prosperity are assured for them. j while the American farmers and j workingmen are facing ruin. Careful eitir.ates show that the protected in- I terests will receive approximately three and a half billions dollars as- surcd profits from the tariff while me government may possibly raise a half a billion from the tariff. The f ramerg of the Republican Prohibitivetariff, prepared a bait for the American farmer which thev felt sure would be swallowed with the eag erness of "suckers." They told the farmer that he was to be put on the same basis as the American manu facturer he was to be given a nro- tective tariff. Accord ine-Iv a tummr' tariff was levied on wheat and other products which the American farmer exports and the price of which is con trolled by the foreign market. A tariff wa put on wool an dsome other products which are imported to some extent. The former was no protec tion at all but this latter looked like a bit of real protection, for the duty on wool was set at 12c. This looked encouraging until compared with the duty offered the woolen manufacturer of 85c to $1.25 per pound. It is little wonder that the farmer has refused to swallaw the bait as shown by the recent election returns. ALL THE WORLD LOVES A GOOD LOSER 1 THE PROHIBITIVE TARIFF AND THE FARMER ' 'I The farmer is the class hit hardest by the republican Prohibitive Tariff. Foreign nations especially those of Europe, need American farm pro ducts. They have.no money to pay for these but would gladly pav for j them in manufactured goods.

For WARMER BEDDING Feels r W Mighty Good These Cold Wights It is easy to smile and be pleasant when you win but it takes a real man to meet defeat with a smile. ' The world admires a man who can smile in defeat. Just now the public has the opportunity of observing how about half of the candidates who were running for office on November 7th, take defeat. For where there are two good people after the same office as is usually the case, one of the two must be defeated. The man who takes his defeat in good spirit cheer fully accepting the verdict of the vot ers wins the admiration of all. As surely as "All the world loves a lov er," so also the whole world loves a good loser.
