Although Uncle Joe Cannon anil bfs astute nontenants on tho floor of the llbusc, Sorem? Payne of Now York and (ho Nutty Onlzoll of Pennsylvania, bnve come out openly aud repeatedly In strong assertions that Congress will "stand put" on the tariff question, there In every reason to believe that lh> v are working a bluff game, for veti-ian newspaper men, who have nhlnvasscd the situation thoroughly, Vnro decidedly under the Impression that If the tariff revisionists In both of the branches of the national leg? islature get tho reins In their teeth tho ?dlcnl stand patters will not prove numerically powerful enough to stem the tide of revision, they think, In 'spite of the semiofficially acknowl? edged fact that there Is a thorough un? derstanding between tho administra? tion and the Republican cougrcsslon nl lenders that nothing Is to bo dorn In Hint direction until after the pros [dcutlnl election. The proposition od gjancod l>.v Taft In his Columbus speech t';On thlB subject reflects this agree meat, and the real purpose of this do gmaratlon on the part of the admlnls (ration at tho present time Is to give I Warning to supporters of Roosevelt who happen to represent constltu , ents favorable to a revision of tin tariff that they c.m make no move In that line without coining Into con? flict with Hie administration's plans The tariff agreement with. Germany which the President will, compel Con :grcss to ratify early in the session Pflll not only start the ball of tariff provision discussion rolling, but it will ."show unmistakably, when the roll call ^'ls over, that the Chief Executive bns (.aligned himself with Uncle Joe and ;Jils far front solid phalanx of stand patters. Tho President, according to I an undoubted authority, i.s under ob llgatlon to recommend to the Congres: certain Important tariff legislation, nn;| his obligation cannot be avoided |pr evaded without giving serious of fcfensc nnd violating an agreement with BB. friendly and powerful government These recommendations relate to the ?^administrative, features: but loglsla f?tlon on one branch of the tariff opens V-tho way to general legislation by ^amendment, and theVo is no possibill ?jity of the adinlnlKt ration carryln |?Ut the treaty obligation to Germany ^Without opening up the enllro tariff buostion, unless the Republicans in #J2pngro8s can be brought to co operate a unit to prevent any sort of ||?rhendmont of the bare proposition of JSMmlnifltratlvo legislation to carry out f#he terms of the treaty. .'- In the light of this situation tho ^significance of the adiniiilstrallon ! declaration, that tanlff revision tuusl I ho postponed until after tho presl jSjdentlrtl election wili be readily up predated. ARTIST EARLE A MAN WITHOUT SHAME. Tlio people of Monroe, N. J., a BUbUl.'h of New York, nro to I v con? gratulated upon tho manner in which they treated Artist Kittle, who nlmn doned his wife and child in oiVlor that he might marry another woman, when In- arrived in the town nft? he ami the woman who Is to become his wife later on, had said farewell to tho woman who had boon ids wife for ten years. The people of Monroe very coiUcctly resented Carle's up pet.ilance In their midst und mode u demonstration of disapproval thai went hoyond the conflnos of the law, hut Ihcre are times, like the one the people of Monroe had to lace, when the law does not cover the ground fully or In a manner that Is satisfy? ing lo decent people. Karle was practically mobbed anil he made mat? ters wo5so by attempting to defend Ills actions by addressing tho crowd. Ills language showed him to he a man utterly without shame and de? cency, and It Is no wonder that the BOO I people of Monroe ceased to lie patient and law abiding. The out bronk was a manifestation of a spirit or morality and regard for the high? est hnv, which must gratify all Ameri? cans* Other men hnve deserted their wives und laier on wedded for n sec? ond lime; there have l.?cou divorce cases Hint were revolting In the ex? treme, hut seldom In the history of the country has n man so openly de fled the best law of the hind ? the law of home and chastity?as hns this fol? low Kaule. Km innately the whole peo? ple t>f this country regard marriage In the one light only ? that It Is u sacred institution and that It forms one of the firmest foundations on which the gov? ernment rests. It Is not only u foun? dation for our govn.ninent. hut Is tho basis of the entire system of civilisa? tion. It Is one id Lhd few things thai tho American people will no| BOO Openly violated. The very men who are thethsoives unfortunate In their mnrrlngo relations tiro orten tho first lo protest when uuothor man openly denies this sacred Institution. A case in point is found In Maxim Corky, who came to this country about a year ago and who was ro eelved with open arms, und it was bei loved that his mission to this side of lite Atlantic would he crowned by the highest success. Suddenly It was leni'iied iluit the great Russinn novel? ist was accompanied to thin country by a woman who was not his wife, though he had a wife In Russia. I.Ike a flash the American people d .topped Corky and the anticipated triumphal tour was ended In a miserable, dis? graceful fiasco. OOrky Instead of be? ing an Idol, beenmo an outcast, and Ills departure was In direct contrast With his arrival. Wholesome Ameri? can sentiment will not stand for such things. Perhaps our morals are not the highest In the world in many to snoots, but the people on the whole rognrd the open violation of the highest law with poslttve abhorrence| mid disgust. It Is Indeed a wholesome sign that the American people regard the no tlon of Karle as they do, and there la not much danger of a nation crumi/ ling as long as the people of II have the same high regard for chastity and honie. : .lust to think. If the residents of Nowport News hud boon a little lib oral In the spi'Jug Ihey would now have a pennant winning baseball team within their midst. The glory of winning a baseball pennant is more or less satisfying, and the advertising the city would have received, would not hunt it ? hit. The fearlessness Hint Artist Barlo Is displaying Is not true courage. A shameless man has always at his command a corHaln amount of defi? ance that might possibly he taken for courage?but It Is not. Kx Queen I.lllluoknlani Is going to marry Prince Ail Pal of Tahiti, who weighs Ihreo hundred pounds. Queen Ml Is no sylph like creature, und without meaning to perpetrate a poor joke, it would seem from appearances that they would ho good pals.
