REJOICE NOT TOO SOON
The residents of Fern Hill, former
ly a suburb of TacQma. liut after
wards included within the city limits.
are rejoicing over their recent vie- 1
tory in the controversy with the Ta
coma Railway and Power Company, j
Before Fern Hill had become a part
of Tacoma, the street ear-fare was |
ten cents per passenger from Pacific
Avenue and fifteen cents cents for the:
round trip. The little suburb was'
annexed to the city in order to ol>-1
tain the five-cent per passenger rate, j
whereupon the company advanced
the rate to ten cents straight with
out round-trip privileges. Then
came contests before the courts and
those of a physical nature, in which
one man by the name of Peder Jen
sen. suffered severe maltreatment at
the hands of an employe of the com
pany. The franchise provided that
a five-cent rate should be charged
within the city limits, which the
company's lawyers claimed applied
oniy to the boundaries existing at
the time of granting the franchise.
The Superior Court of Pierce county
held against the Railway and Power
company, and on appeal to the Su
preme Court of this State that tri
bunal has affirmed the decision of the
lower court. The company's mana
ger states a rehearing will be applied
for before the appellate court, en
banc, which means the entire bench
consisting of nine judges. Assum
ing the petition for a rehearing will
be denied, then the company will un
doubtedly sue out a writ of error, be
fore the United States Supreme
Court, on the ground that the State
tribunals misconstrued the franchise,
impairing the obligation of the con
tract, and that the company is de
prived of its property and rights
without due process of law. The
highest court may reverse the State
courts, then where will the Fern
Hillites be at ? Again, if the pres
ent ruling is not wholly reversed,
still the rights of the residents and
parties similarly situated, may be so
circumscribed that a ruling seeming
ly iu their favor may do thein very
little good.
In one of the suits pending in the
Pierce county court, on intervention
of the Old Colony Trust Co., a foreign
corporation that owned a large block
of the stock of the Railway and
Power company, procured the con
troversy to lie transferred to the
Federal Court, in which Judge Han
ford issued a restraining order pro
hibiting the Fern Hillites and City of
Tacoma officials from collecting the
ten cent fare. It seems, however,
this order was never enforced and
passengers continued to ride on the
basis of the five-cent rate. Now the
question arises, what will interfere
with the Trust company or any non
resident stockholder from going
ahead and obtain a contrary ruling
before the U. S. oourts, bearing in
mind the resourceful methods of cor
poration lawyers. Still these attor
neys are confronted with the popu
lar prejudice existing, and by no
means on the decline against the
Federal judiciary. On the whole, it
seems the State tribunals should
have the power to finally decide the
questions of local policy regarding
the relations of our domestic corpo
rations and our own citizens of the
above character.
Republican Trust Protection.
A few steel corporation men dined
in Chicago a short time ago, and
they were said to represent two bil
lion dollars —not millions, but bil
lions—which had been created in the
past four years out of the sweat and
blood of suffering humanity. And
yet the Republicans will refuse to re
vise the tariff which has protected
these billionaires, and have even in
creased the rates on structural steel
in the new tariff law so that their
profits could be made larger. There
is now absolutely no competition on
structural st«;el, so the steel.trust
can charge 45 per cent—which is the
tariff protection —over and above a
reasonable profit without fear of com
petition from any foreign quarter.
Thus the coast of erecting re-enforced
steel buildings is largely added 10
and rents are increased in proportion
to the increased price of steel by
reason of the tariff protection. Yet,
Vice-President Sherman, in a speech,
in North Carolina, defends the tariff
law, and declares that high-price
wages are the beneficent results of
protective policies.
ONE of the many Republicans who

OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 11, 1910.
SOME STARTLING FIGURES.
YELM, Wash., Oct. 31, 1910.
Ki>. Standahi):
Here is a little item on schedule K,
the woolen schedule, which may sur
prise some of our d. o. p. friends not
withstanding the fact that President
Taft said. " It's the best tariff law
we ever had." During the discus
sion of the Payne Hill, Congressman
Sisson of .Mississippi gave the fol
lowing statistics. He said: The
value of the woolen manufacture of
the United States in 1!R)5 was $767,-
210,000. If these same goods had
been purchased abroad they would
have cost $404,651,368. This leaves
a margin of protection on manufac
tures of wool of $362,569,622 which is
the excess paid by the users of
woolens for the privilege of having
them manufactured in this country
rather than abroad.
lie estimated that the labor cost of
producing these goods in America
was $135,069,063. If the American
workman in the woolen mills earns
twice as much as does the woolen
workman abroad, then the difference
in labor cost is represented by half
that sum, or $67,534,000. The differ
ence between the protection given,
$362,000,000 and the sum paid by the
manufacturers to their workmen in
excess of what the European manu
facturer pays his workman, $295,-
000,000. This money goes into the
pockets of the manufacturers and not
in the treasury of the United States.
Every time we buy $1 worth of
foreign goods we purchase $34 worth
from our home manufacturers.
Every time $1 is paid into the na
tional treasury, under this woolen
schedule from woolen imports $14.40
clean cut profit overhaul above a le
gitimate foreign prolit, over and
above cost of labor at home, over and!
above freight charges across the At
lantic. goes into the pockets of the
manufacturer of woolen goods. In
190», there was manufactured in
America $365,000,000 worth of men's
clothing. None of this was import
ed; all was used at home. The im
portation of clothing was very small,
a little less than $2,000,000, and the
tariff duty was $1,500,000. The duty
on men's clothing averages about 82
per cent. There is left a margin for
protection on the whole output the
sum of $170,000,000. Allowing that
the American clothing worker gets
twice as much as a similar work
man abroad, the difference in cost of
labor would be one-half the total sum
paid out in this country ($57,000,000)
or $28,500,000, leaving a net margin
to the American manufacturers of
$141,500,000. This is what the
American manufacturer can charge
over and above the legitimate profit
of the foreign manufacturer, and
what tariff schedule K permits him
to charge. If he does not charge it,
then the tariff is too high and ought
to be reduced because he has unnec
essary protection. If he does charge
the full price the tariff permits him
to charge, then he enriches himself
at the expense of the men who must
buy what he consumes.

NATTERS OF FACT.
David Bennet Hill, the noted New
York Democratic politician, died last
week.
The Treasury Department of the
United States has appointed Mabel
K. Seedy Inspector of Customs at
San Diego, Cal.
The forest service at Portland, Or
egon, is advertising a sale of 145,000,-
000 feet of green timber to be taken
from the Cascade Reserve, near Med
ford.
Former Senator Foraker, in open
ing the Republican campaign at Tx)u
isville, Ky., denounced the New
Nationalism of Theodore Roosevelt
as " treasonable as secession itself."
Mrs. Frances Folsom Cleveland,
widow of President Cleveland, has
Ijeen appointed by Gov. Fort, of New
Jersey, as one of the Lady Commis
sioners to manage the Women's Re
formatory in that State.
Seventy-seven men heroically gave
their lives in efforts to subdue the
forest fires in the West, during the
latter part of August, according to
figures given out by the forest ser
vice. These were mostly temporary
employes engaged for the purpose of
fighting fires.
IF, in consequence of the high cost
of living, you cannot afford to buy
real wool clothing for yourself and
little ones this winter, and you all
shiver with cold, remember that a
Republican Congress refuses to re
duce the high tariff rates of the wool
schedule which allows the Woolen
Trusts to charge about double price
for its products, and did nothing
that resulted in lowering the price
of other necessities of life.

"The P.-J. announces the candidacy

cognomen of 'Antelope Doc' for Chief of

Seattle Timet, Oct. 2j.
Or the declarations of the Seattle
Tunes that Chief Wappenstein of .Se
attle, is a man pure as the dew of
heaven, or words to the effect. The
Seattle Times isn't fit to be used to
cover a garbage can, from my view
point.
The poorest girls in the world are
those not taught to work. There
are thousands of thein. Rich pa
rents have petted them and they
have been taught to despise labor,
and to depend upon others for a liv
ing, and are perfectly helpless. The
most forlorn women belongs to this
class. Every daughter should learn
to earn her own living—the rich as
wall as the poor. The wheel of for
tune rolls swiftly around; the rich
are likely to become poor, and the
poor rich; it has been so. Skill add
ed to labor is no disadvantage to
the rich, and it is indispensible to
the poor. Well-to-do girls should
learn to work. No reform is more
imperative than this.
He hadn't much experience as a
sailor but the captain of the tramp
steamer was anxious to get away
while the tide served. He was a
hand short, too; so without asking
too many questions he engaged the
rough-looking fellow on the spot.
Soon the steamer began to leave
the dock, and the new hand was sent
for'ard to await instructions.
"Letgothat for'ard rope there,"
roared the captain.
But the new hand made no sign.
" Why don't you let go that for'-
ard rope?" again yelled the cap
tain from the bridge, dancing with
rage.
" Who's touching yer rope?" re
plied the new hand. " I'm not."
Then the captain fainted.
The following paragraph I clipped
from the Tacoma Xewt, of Oct. 25:
" Henry Watterson, the very able but
very excitable editor of the Louisville
Courier-Journal, declares that Roose
velt a 'new nationalism' will bring civil
war and that Itoosevelt will 'make
Aaron Burr respectable and clothe Jef
ferson Davis in robes of living light '
The moral isthat'Marse Henry' needs
an opiate."
Wouldn't that rattle your spurs ?
The editor of the Tacoma AW* refer
ing to Henry Watterson, one of the
world's most distinguished editors
and thinkers, as "veryable!" The
editor of the Tacoma AW* should
send Henry Watterson, the world
quoted editor of the Louisville (Ken
tucky) Courier-Journal, a marked
copy of the Anro containing his crit
icism of Mr. Watterson as a "very
able" editor. The moral of this, is
that the editor of the Tacoma AW*,
needs a dose of common, every-day
horse sense. .
In an address before the Progres
sive Republican Club in Auburn, Ole
Hanson, of Seattle, (and lest I forget,
; whenever you have the chance, go
and hear Mr. Hanson speak; it will
be a treat, whether you believe in
his politics or not), said: " The days
of savagery appear to be passing
away, but every time I see the un
covered third rail of the electric
company between Tacoma and Seat
tle, I wonder at the patience of this
commonwealth. It ought to lie cov
ered at once, and the courts ought to
order it done on the ground of com
mon safety. If they have not the
power, a law should be passed forcing
the company to do this. It is much
more dangerous than stored dyna
mite and yet one can only have dyna
mite about his premises under cer
tain conditions." Yea, yea. As
Mr. Hanson says, if the courts have
not the power to order the third rail
of the electric company covered be
tween Tacoma and Seattle, a law
should l)e passed forcing the company
to do so. The third rail is a death
trap.
Exalted But Pleasinf, Because Sincere.
Mv DEAR FRIEND MURPHY:
For fifty years you have kept the
lfght buoy in the journalistic sea of
Washington, burning bright and
clear, throwing its rays of education
steadily each week; the oil never
' running out"; the wick always
carefully trimmed, giving a brilliant,
well-regulated, and constant flame of
honest thought and opinion for the
purpose of elevating, and the better
ment of humanity, the — WASHING roN
STANDARD.
That you are to retire irom your
accustomed editorial duties of fifty
years duration, and will leave the
task of editing the STANDARD to
others, will lie deeply and sincerely
regretted by your numerous personal
and business friends in the State; for
even fifty years is all too short for
your stay.
You have done loyal and useful
work, and your name will be written
in histories of this State. You have
met with hosts of friends upon the
way, who will shed tear-drops of ser
row, as you bid farewell to the jour
nalistic profession after fifty years
spent in the editorial harness —I say
fifty years —yes; golden ones for your
readers, educationally, and though
your loss to the press of this State
will cause heartfelt regret, it will be
said: " The press of Washington
State is far better for having and
knowing—John Miller Murphy.
You have always advocated hon
esty, principle, character, upright
ness, honor and conscientiousness —
a group of high thoughts and ideals.
What better subjects than these may
any thinker preach week after week,
month after month, and year after
year, as you have done ?
Though you retire from the STAND
ARD, your mind will not be curbed,
your eyes will see their way, and
when you see the State disturbed you
will have your say. Not only have
you catered to the needs of State,
county and city, as you have con
sidered your duty, but you befriended
the individual you saw in distress,
and did for such the best that man
could do.
You have not lived by faith en
tirely though sincere that faith may
have been, but you have proved and
shown by actions that your creed
was broad, sincere and free.
Though, during your fifty years as
editor of the WASHINGTON STANDARD
(one of the best weekly papers on
Earth) you have seen many people
let little crotchets hem them in, you
always grasped the editorial knife,
so to speak, and lopped off all that
made for evil.
Friend Murphy, the editorial scribes
of this State will miss you:
They'll miss thy voice, they'll miss thy
pen,
They'll miss thy kind and genial form;
They're much in want of such like men
To guide them through Life's stress
and form.
They'll miss thy counsel and advice —
A thing on which they could depend;
And what is more, they II sacrifice
A kind, sincere and loving friend.
In friendship's name accept this
letter, it is all I have to give, and
may you go hand in hand with time,
as long as I would bid you live.
Fifty years—truly, a golden wed
ding of pen and press.
Sincerest wishes.
Your health.
I salaam. — LUK F. VERNON.
THE Spanish mode of dancing the
waltz is charming, and neither as
fatiguing nor as heating as the Amer
ican way. The Latins waltz slowly,
and with them it is all a graceful
glide, with the hop entirely omitted.
The gentlemen choose their partners
and the waltz begins. Shortly af
terward, however, the waltz music
ehanges to a march. The gentlemen
stop daneing, offer their arms to the
ladies, and the entire company prom
enade leisurely through the step,
conversing and fanning as they go.
Presently the waltz begins again,
and the same partners dance to
gether. One dance may have three
promenades in it, and with few ex
ceptions a lady finishes the dance
with her original partner.

"There is no worse vice than
frankness," said a playwright.- "How
should I feel, for example, if I
asked you for your opinion of my
plays and you answered me frankly,
quite frankly? Why, I should feel
like the poor lady at the bridge
drive who said to her hostess' little
daughter:
" ' Your eyes are such a heavenly
blue. And what color are my eyes,
darling?'
" The child's high treble traveled
easily to the farthest corner of the
quiet room as she replied, looking
earnestly up into her questioner's
face:
"' Dwab middles, yellow whites
and wed wims.'"
OPPOSING REFORMS.
The Republicans of Maryland have
been trying to prevent Gov. Croth
ers of that Sta*e from reorganizing
the Police Commission of Baltimore,
and have even gone so far as to
threaten him with impeachment if he
does his duty according to the con
stitution and the laws of the State.
The police commission has been
charged with dereliction of duty—
allowing uninvestigated gambling;
the unrestricted sple of liquor on Sun
day; protecting criminals; police
force have shared in the spoils. The
Governor was urged by reputable
citizens of all classes to take action.
The case is now before the court un
der mandamus proceedings to pre
vent Gov. C rot hers from suspend
ing the police commission pending
trial, and from appointing a tempor
ary commission in their places. The
Republicans claim that to remove the
police commission before they have
been proven guilty would be " arbi
trary despotism." But Attorney-
General Straus told the court: "The
power of the Governor to make tem
porary appointment in this case ex
ists in the Constitution. He is re
quired by it to enforce the laws, and
is given the power of removal with
the incidental power of temporary
suspension." If it were otherwise,
there would be no way to correct the
most flagrant abuses, and reform
would be impossible unless delin
quents were caught red-handed,
which rarely occures.
Attorney-General Straus declared
to the court that: "The Governor
will do his duty, and he is entitled to
the respect of all citizens. A more
laborious and faithful Governor than
Crothers never filled the gubernator
ial chair. I believe the great mass
of the people are behind him in his
efforts to improve the police depart
ment."
The partisan spirit shown by the
Republican leaders of Maryland is
not unusual, for Governor Harmon,
Mayor Gaynor and other Democratic
officials of several States, have had
similar obstacles thrown in their
way in their efforts to reform abuses.

By the extraordinary contortions

and scmtiliating flash about her lips,

" Umph goo—suff wuff — she —

"Quite so, my dear," he agreed,

" Ouff wuff so —gs—ph rf

TH* Chippewas are one of the few
remaining Indian tribes that possess
totems. A " totem" is the generic
word for a class of material objects
which a savage regards with super
stitious awe, under the belief that
between him and every member of
the class there exists an intimate re
lation. The totem may be a wolf, a
beaver, a buffalo, a salmon, a snake,
the wind, bircli-bark, the leaves of
trees, the sun or the snow. But
whatever it happens to be, the con
nection between it and its protege
is mutually beneficial. The totem
protects the man, and the man testi
fies his esteem for this protection by
not killing or destroying it.
Odd Hair Styles.
Some of the New Hebrides people
do their hair up in a bunch on the top
of the head and stain it yellow, while
the inhabitants of the OIHIKII Islands
pass it all through a tube so as to
make a sort of plume. The Marque
sas chief's method is to shave all the
head except two patches, one over
each temple, where he cultivates two
horns of hair. No doubt this is to
more render him a thing of terror to
his enemies than admiration of his
friends. His reason for shaving the
remainder of his head is to allow more
space for tattooing, as if all the avail
able skin of the body were not suffi
cient for that purpose.

THANKSGIVING.
November Lippincotl's.
Thanksgiving day is the day when
every one says he is thankful, anil
wants to eat turkey tu prove it. If
you haven't anything else to be
thankful for. you can be thankful
you are not a turkey.
Thanksgiving Day was first ob
served by the Pilgrims, who were
thankful that they had five grains of
corn apiece. In these extravagant
times a man wouldn't be thankful if
he had tm grains of corn —which
shows conclusively t K at we are too
prosperous. The trusts are doinjr a
noble work in remedying this evil
condition.
People have various unreasonable
reasons for being thankful on Thanks
giving Day. Some men are thankful
they took a wife, and some are
thankful they didn't take two.
Bachelor maids are thankful they are
not " horrid bachelors," and a mar
ried woman is always thankful that
her husband has a good wife. It is
easy to be thankful if you go about
it right.
THE clamor about the high cost of
living is intensifying all over the
country. Something must be done
to stay this onooming tide of dis
content, and high financiers on Wall
street are endeavoring to increase
the purchasing power of money by
aiming to retire the asset currency
put in circulation under the Aldrich.
Vreeland law. They feel that by so
doing, if prices and values drop the
losses will be offset by the higher
value of primary money, gold, and
the people will be slow in catching
on to their tricks.

SENATOR Gore, the blind Senator
from Oklahoma, has wired that he
was not able to visit the State of
Washington to speak in favor of
Democratic candidates this fall. He
had hoped to be able to make the
visit and says that he would have
done it without charge.
CITIZENS of Honoulu have pro
tested against President Taft's ap
pointment of Charles A. Cottrell as
collector of customs at that port.
They do not object because Cottrell is
st negro, but because he is not a na

But the thing people are most
thankful for is their money—even
though they came by t honestly.
The more a man has, the more thank
ful he is that it isn't less; and the
less a man has, the less likely he is
to bo thankful because it isn't more.
Be thankful, therefore, that you
haven't too much to be thankful for.

A Walla Walla dispatch of the 21st
ult. says: The Commercial club has
on exhibition three branches of ap
ples that look like gigantic clusters of
grapes. C. R. Rader grew two of
them on his foothill orchard, and the
other was recently secured by L. M.
Brown of the publicity department.
One of these branches contains 28
Ben Davis apples of the three and a
half tier size, growing on a stem but
IB inches long. Another has Rome
Beauties four and a half tier size, 19
of them, on a six-inch. The third
has 16 four and a half-tier Winesaps
on a 13-inch stem.

Will Washer tells this one of a dry
territory remedy:
"A colored man with rheumatism
in his arm was advised to try a quart
of whiskey and the next day was
asked how he felt. 'De rheumatism
has done left my arm and gone ter
my head,' he replied.' "
Our own Br'er Williams, on being
informed that a pint of whiskey was
a remedy for the bite of a rattle
snake, said. " I knows right whar
ter find de snake, but whar in de
worl' will I git de whiskey?"
