Former Secretary of Treasury
Shaw Outlines Merits
to City Club.
Lauding the merits of protective
tariff and attributing all prosperity
enjoyed by the United States to the
policies of the republican party. Dr.
Leslie M. Shaw, former Secretary of
the Treasury, replied to democratic
claims presented at the previous
week's meeting In an address to members
of the City Club forum at Its
weekly luncheon in the City Club-yesterday.
Introduced by James T. Lloyd, democrat,
chairman, as one of the most
noted economists and lecturers in the
country, "but whose doctrines ixcd
not necessarily be correct," the Iowa
statesman straightway launched forth
a long list of notable achievements
of his party and presented his arguments
in such a convincing manner
that at the end of his talk there were i
none with the temerity to take advantage
of his invitation to be
Aid to Industry.
Dr. Shaw said the republican party
was one of greater statesmanship ]
than any of its opponents, a party I
that fostered industry, rather than I
fathering it, and declared that aside j
from the federal reserve system, i
"which in reality was the outgrowth
of the Aldrich bill," he would be glad |
to hear of one industry that had been !
created by the democratic party.
"There is a great difference between !
fostering industry and fathering in- |
dustry," he declared. "When Jefferson
wrote in the Declaration of Independence
that g overnments were j
instituted to secure the rights of life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness
he did not mean, I take it, that it was
the government's duty to provide I
houses for the people, but to protect
them in their rights, either to obtain j
houses or to sleep in the parks.
Would Keep Government Out.
"The inalienable right of the pursuit
of happiness means just this to
me?that inasmuch as real happiness
comes only from creating the protection
of that right, the protection of
individual opportunity to build railroads,
factories, homes; to raise cattle.
corn or cotton, and whenever
the government steps in and attempts i
to do these things, it is destroying* |
this inalienable right. It is the republican
party wnich protects this I
right. If I were President I would '
veto every bill that came before me
putting the government into business.
"That government is best which
fosters industry most. That is our
case in a nutshell. If you ever hear
of any industry which was built up
under democratic protection, I would
like to hear about it. I
Praises Protective Tariff.
The speaker said that one of the
greatest means of fostering industry j
is a protective tariff. "The republican j
party stands squarely on this princi- i
pie; that tariffs should be high
enough to keep out of this country
any article that Americans can make
or grow themselves. And this is the
only policy which will keep American
labor employed to full capacity."
Continuing, Dr. Shaw said that on
such a full employment rests the question
of whether this nation will endure.
"as even Washington dared
hope. When this administration came
into po\.er in 1920, 5,000.000 men were
out of work. Should that number ever
reach 10.000.0uu America s nope or
perpetuity as a nation must end.
Bay More Under Tariff.
"The opponents of high tariff wails
say they raise prices, yet it is a fact
that we have always imported more
goods per capita under high tariffs than
under low ones. A high tariff makes
the nation so prosperous that it can
afford to buy things abroad that are
not made in this country."
The speaker was given a rising vote
of thanks at the conclusion of his address,
and the entire assembly sang
"America" in observance of Patriotic

Coal Oil Found
For Snake Bites
Science discovered many things
by accident?the synthetlo prooess
for making rubber, for Instance.
But a friend of Dean Swift of
303 7th street northwest discovered
what he claims Is a simple
and certain remedy for poisonouB

Mr. Switf's Interest was attracted
by a newspaper article stating
that scientists were at work on a

found In the fangs of snakes. Bo
he wrote the following letter:
"I have just learned of a very
simple and effective remedy. Last
year a school child was bitten by
a copperhead in Oklahoma, As
the teacher had nothing else but
coal oil, that was applied to the
bite and proved a quick and complete
cure. I also have a friend
whose dog was bitten by a copperhead
and coal oil was applied
with the same result.
"It Is well known that coal oil
is a powerful germ destroyer, and
It, therefore, seems only natural
that It " should - be an effective
remedy In destroying the germs
of snake poison,"
Intricate State Law Emphasized
Because of certain intricate features
of the registration and voting
laws of Illinois citizens of that state
residing In the District are today
urged to call at the local republican
headquarters, 1338 G street, for advice
and instruction. Inasmuch as
October 16 is the last registration day
for absent voters of that state local
leaders are making an effort to Impress
the Importance of giving immediate
attention to the registration requirements
if they wish to cast their
ballot on November 7.
Regulations In Cities.
Illinois workers at the local head
quarters call attention to the fact
that there are six or eight cities in
their state, all in counties other than
Cook, that operate under the so-called
election commissioners law which requires
the absent voter personally to
apply in writing to the clerk of the
election commission for the special
registration blank form which must
be tilled in and sworn to and which
must be in the hands of the election
commission not later than October 16.
Chicago operates under a similar
law. Absent voters of that city must
i personally apply in writing to the
election commission of that city for
the necessary registration blank.
After the registration has been
complied witTi it then is necessary
for the absentee voter to apply personally
for a blank ballot to be used
An Individual Matter.
In other words, registration and
voting in Chicago and the other sections
operating under the election
commission law is an individual matter.
However, under the general
election law of the state registration
is effected by the voter whose home
is in a territory operating under the
general election law asking his or
her county clerk for the absentee
voter's ballot to be voted in the
