CHE CAMERON COUNTY PRESS;
ESTABLISHED BY C. B. GOULD, MARCH, 1866. V0L.44 Will Not Work Again. The Democratic assault upon the re cent tariff act is a vivid reminder of what occurred after the passage of the McKinley tariff law in the second year of the Harrison administration. That law was so persistently and unscrupu lously misrepresented that people were led to believe the most of their ills and misfortunes were due to it, Rays Phila delphia Press. The country was clearly deceived and one month after the passage of the act it elected an overwhelming Democratic majority to the House of Representa tives, and two years later the Demo crats secured the Presidency and both houses of Congress. When followed this was natural enough. It was not necessary to wait for a revision of the tariff by its enemies. The very menace of Democratic control in both executive and legislative departments of the National Government was suffi cient to halt the industries of the country, depress business, stop invest ment and throw hundreds of thousands out of employment. It was a condi tion from which there was no recovery while Democratic administration con tinued, and which was aggravated by the enactment of a Democratic tariff law. There was no recovery until upon a reaction the author as the maligned McKinley tariff was himself elected President with the support of a Re publican Congress. The Democratic tariff was promptly superseded by the Dingley tariff, embodying the Re publican principles of protection, and under that tariff the country prospered for more than a dozen years as it had never prospered before. Since that time the Democrats have not had the Presidency, nor have they had control of either house of Congress. The peo ple, whose confidence has been abused, amazingly increased Republican ma orities in Republican States and dis tricts, and made Republican majorities in places where they had beeu unheard of before. That lesson cannot have been for gotten, through the enemies of pro tection appear to believe it has. They are employing now against the new tariff law the same tactics used against the McKinley act. It is assailed with misrepresentation; it ia falsely charged with responsibility for the higher prices of articles on which the duty has not been changed and on some of which the duties were reduced. If their assertions are not made ignorant ly they are made with a presumption of popular ignorance which cannot be justified. It is inconceivable, that such obvious misrepresentations can delude the peo ple into again electing a Democratic Congress with its menace to industrial and business activity. One experience of this kind within the memory of the present generation should be, and doubtless is, warning enough. The Churches. EMMANUEL CHURCH. REV. M. L. TATE, Rector.

The great majority of people eat but ter and much prefer it to any of the substitutes which have been put on the market. However, a great many peo ple must use a substitute on account of the high prices which prevail during certain months of the year. Oleemargine is the most common substitute for butter and millions of pounds of this product are consumed each year. The difference in cos f of product! n between olemargarine and butter is so great that when butter is retailed at forty ceuts a pound, ole margarine may be retailed at twenty cents at as great a profit to the dealer. The person who chooses to purchase the substitute should be allowed to do so and he should be required to pay only the price of the substitute. The difference in price between the genuine product and the substitute is so great that the dealers are tempted to sell the latter for the former. Only by re quiring that the consumers may differ entiate between the two articles can honest traffic in the substitute be insur ed. This was contemplated by Congress when the present internal revenue tax of ten cents a pound was levied upon "artificially colored olemargarine." Many people think that all olemargar ine is taxed ten cents a pound. This is not a fact. Olemargarine which is "artificially colored" so that the con sumer cannot distinguish it from but ter is the only olemargarine that is thus taxed. When it is put upon the market in its natural color it is only taxed one-fourth of one cent per pound. It is only when the product is made to look like butter so that it may be fraudendently sold as butter that a bur densome tax is imposed upon it. The imposition of the tax is not to sup press the sale of olemargarine or to make it more expensive to the consu mer, but to prevent fraud in its sale. THE NATIONAL DAIRY UNION, E. K. SLATER, Secretary, St. Paul, Minn. Won Diamond Ring. Miss Mary Blumle, who is one of the contestants in the Bermuda Island con test being held by the Williamsport News, received word by telephone last Saturday, that she had won the $75 00 diamond ring which the company had offered for the largest number of votes received during the last week.

IS and 16th Rail Road News. The increasing demand for greater safety and facility in railroad opera tion has caased the Pennsylvania Rail road to institute a new plan of training men to maintain and operate its sig nals. Accordingly, there have just been appointed four Signal apprenti ces; Jacob Bright, graduate of Lehigh 1910. L. J. Phillips, graduate of Shef field Scientific Sohool, Yale 1910, A. W. Fisher, 1910 graduate of Pennsyl vania State College, and A. H. Tanker, graduate of Yale, 1910, Sheffield .Sci entific School. The different divisions of the Lines East of Pittsburg have started signal schools where experienced signalmen give instruction to the division signal employees in regard to the proper operation and maintenance of the dif ferent signal and interlocking appli ances. ' The importance of this step is indi cated by the fact that, whereas, in 1902 there were but 7,891 interlocking functions in operation on the Lines East of Pittsburg, in 1908 this number was 20,726—having just about tripled in a period of six years. These 20.- 836 functions are operated by 8,792 levers. A total of 12,408 signals are in service, covering 3.386 miles of road, or over 70 per cent of mileage. Signal apprentices will serve a three years coarse. The first year will be spent on the mechanical end of the work with the repair gangs, the sec ond year in the office of the Supervi sor of Signals, and the third year on outside work on electric and electro pneumatic appliances. They wili re port to the Supervisor of Signals while taking this course. The next place open to these men in the position of Assistant Signal In spector in the Signal Engineer's Office. After attaining this they will be con sidered in line of appointment to the following positions: Assistant Super visor of Signals, Supervisor of Signals, Inspector, Assistant Signal Engineer and Signal Engineer.
