Several of them have served in tlie first state legislature or in territorial legislatures aim have 1-cen returned oil ihe records they have made, and we believe that those -entlemen de sire, above all things, to lengthen those honorable records. It would not be an American legis lature, or it would be unlike any American legislature, or, for that n.at ler, unlike any legislative body ever assembled, if in the course of it some freak legislation was not proposed; it would also he unlike any legislative body of which we have ever heard, if sonic member did not appear with an ill-concealed collar about his neck, with an almost .invisible, tenuous, but stroii-:;, chain attached, lint we do not believe, from what we know or have heard of the members of the legisla ture, that the freaks or the tools will be sufficiently numerous to exercise an evil influence. We believe it will be a business leg islature, and that such laws as it will enact, whether adding to the statutes or eliminating from them, will be such as to attract favorable attention to the state. The legislature, we believe, should bctrin its helpful and constructive work early; that it should sit down at once and unmistakably upon every freak proposal; that it should briirj; it uick ly into such contempt that the faddists will be discouraged. We have had too much of that in the recent past. What Arizona needs now more than anythiin; else is the exercise of strict common-sense. Let all frea,k proposals be lani-hcd into the committee rooms and kept there. There is another dauber. We have had such an experience within the last three years with fieak ami radical leg islation that we niay be tempted to be ultra-conservative and to revert to the very practices which produced the radicalism from which the state now suffers. The middle uround between the precipices on either side is always the safe "round. Tariff Commissions Representative Mann has introduced a bill providing for a tariff commis sion. Mr. Mann is the leader of the minority in the house and is believed to be the best parliamentarian in that body, as well as one of the country's ablest statesmen. I5ut Mr. Maun can not be dissociated from the men who built up the tariff system which cul minated in the I'avne-Aldrich law, which became a mill-stone about the neck of the republican party jxud draped it down. The -protective prin ciple of the I'ayne-AIdrich law had the approval of a jjroat majority of the country. The principle was endorsed especially by southern congressmen in t-he framnc; of the present Underwood law, in demanding and seeiirhiir pro tection for their constituents, the while they were dcnouncuiif protection and insisting upon a tariff for revenue only. Hut the trouble with the Payne Aldrich law was that it yave to certain powerful interests a protection that enabled them to become monopolies. It was a perversion of a beneficent principle". It was against the perver sion and not the principle that the peo ple revolted. As a defender of that law, any xng j;cstioii of tariff reform from Mr. Maun will naturally be viewed with suspicion. The tariff commission idea is not orig inal with Mr. .Mann. President Taft. we believe, was the first who suested it, and a tariff commission was appoint ed. It made reeonmiendatio'ns of cer tain schedules, but its recoimnenda tioiis were listened to only when they were not adverse to the private and powerful interests which had the ear of the republican leaders and really dictated tariff legislation. When Mr. Taft assented with some reluctance to Ihe Payne-Aldrich bill, people lost faith in him and his tariff commission which was popularly supposed to have fallen under the influence of the beneficiaries of the law. The progressive party proposed a plan for a renuine tariff reform, hold ing first to the protective principle. It advocated a tariff commission. ;,' non-partisan body, composed (f ex perts, whose recommendations should have force and which could not be set aside by any interested manufacturer, however powerful he mi-ht be. A tariff commission with less power and authority would be worthless. The tariff commission appointed by Mr. Taft like that advocated by Mr. Mann, was a purely advisory bodv with less power to shape tariff legislation than any single "roup of manufacturers in the country. The real tariff commis sion must be a body which can stand between the house ways and means committor and the .-enate finance com mittee on the one hand and the manu facturers and powerful private inter ests oil the other. A Most Satisfactory Campaign The annual bargain offer of The LY publiean ended on Saturday niIit, closing the most successful and satis factory subscription campaign ever in stituted by this paper, it was suc cessful far beyond the expectations of the management. We did i,ot believe there was so much nincy in the coun try to lie spent for newspapers, and we did not know that there were so many people who had not already been reading The Republican. Nearly a thousand of the latter were brought in by tlie . campaign, to sav nothing of several thousand of former subscribers who renewed Iheir sub scriptions by cash payments for an other year. The most satisfactory feature of the campaign was the spontauiety of it. We, had messages from different parts of the country, in substance as follows: "Why don't you send a man here.' 'I here are several people here who want to subscribe. Lot us know whether a man will come to take our subscriptions or whether we must send them in." Li all the history of newspaper sub scription campaigns there was never, we believe, one in wlwch there was such a ready response to a mere an nouncement that a bargain offer had been made. ii A REAL DIPLOMAT A y.iiiililnl school girl was stciuim? at Kl-iimlmi)ili r In the Imini. was s.r, u,,. i years h t senior, whom she was thought to it-scni-lile. one nioniiiiB an (,,: ,m.;ey who did cliores iii-ini ml th home, ,urMt upon lhi-ni with the remark: ".Vii.sH Naiii-y, I did nut know 'til yisxtiily when I w-il you and Miss- Knnn dressed alike at church, Thai you wuz o much alike." "Indeed." some one replied. "I'ncle l.ee. whii-l: do yon think tlie lien look'ins;?" Th old darkey, not wishing to be partial, scratched his head and said: Well, 1 believe Miss Kanny (tlie school girl) is most the iloiMishinsest looking in the face. But, 1 be!iee, Mis.
