CAREFUL WORK " ON THE TARIFF Scientific Skill and Accuracy Marks Progress Republican Senators Are Making OLD LINES BEING WIPED OUT Tariff Problem Loiet Many of Its Per plexities Southern Senators Join With Those From Pennsylvania In Opposing Insurgents From the West. Progress U boing made daily In the construction of the tariff bill the mem bers of the United States Senate are Industriously working on. The work goes ahead slowly, but Is marked with exceeding care. There are some who grumble because better speed is not made, but these seem to overlook the fact that to a very considerable do gree the vital interests of the nation are Involved In this revision of the tariff laws and thnt every step taker. In the contemplated legislation should be measured with scientific skill and accuracy. The Republican party, safe ly in the majority in the Senate, Is pledged to give to the nation reform tariff legislation and such legislation Is a positive certainty whether It conies in a day. a week or a month. Just now the Republicans and the Democrats are closer together on the tariff question than they have ever been before, and that promises well for the tariff bill. Froteetion la one of the fundamental principles of the Republican party, but more so now than ever before Democrats of promi nence and standing In the Senate are embracing this Republican principle, as evidenced by the speeches many of them have made and the votes they have cast In the past ten days, and the chances " are largely that this vital question will In the future be lifted out of politics and the doctrine of tar iff protection along the lines of which many fierce political battles have been fought and Invariably won by the Republicans, become a fixed principle with both the great political parties. It Is, therefore, wise and abundantly necessary that the tariff bill now In process of construction should be along lines marked out by the master build ers who are experts In matters of tax ation and revenue raising men who are capable, conscientious and who understand the country's needs. Time Is of course material, but It Is by no means the all-Important factor, and the country Is adjusting itself with absolute confidence thnt the tariff bill when It finally becomes a law will fully Justify whatever delay there has ben In its consideration and preparation, and will meet all the demands of In dustries and Interests In which capital and labor are equally and deeply con cerned. After all Is said and done the tariff Is not a perplexing problem. The tar iff system is not entirely confusing. Many have proven themselves abun dantly capable In mastering the In tricacies of the whole system. There Is not an Industry In America where men are not to be found, even among the unskilled workmen, who thorough ly understand the tariff system In Its entirety. It Is Just the very exact spot upon which the tariff burdens and ben efits are to bear which requires the skill of the statesmen. There must be no unequal burdens. There must be no unjust benefits. That Is why there is delay In framing tariff legislation. That Is why the best minds of the na tion are now Industriously bending their energies in preparing for the country what the country most needs In the way of tariff legislation. That Is why Senators Boies Penrose and George T. Oliver are standing with other eastern Republican senators against several Republican senators from the west In drafting the various schedules of the bill. That Is why several Democratic senators from the south are standing with Senators Pen rose and Oliver In the struggle against Republican and Democratic senators from other sections of the country. Senator Penrose, probably more than any other man In Congress, Is new and has been standing firmly and faithfully for equal and exact protec tion for American Industries and American labor. Senator Penrose very properly contends that America Is far ahead of pny other nation In the world ns a wealth producer. It is well known that the position of our country as a wealth producer Is due to our protec tive system. The greatest asset of this nation, Senator Penrose contends. In Its employed men, and Its greatest liability Its unemployed men. The simple, plain purpose of the tariff is to protect the nation's asset and to re duce Its liabilities. Students of gov ernmental problems argue that a pro tective tariff, comprehending a sensi ble system of taxation, is the best possible way to protect both capital nnd labor. Doth must be protected to get the best results from either for the benellt of the government as a whole. The protection required must, In the nature of things, come through a system of taxation. The enormous expenses of the government must be provided for by taxation and the very principle of taxation Is for the benefit of the whole people. No argument In favor of reducing taxation will stand so long as the government progresses. Insufficiency of funds Is the one great rvcblem which confronts every legis lative body. That Blmply means In sufficient tautlon, and insufficient tax ation means governmental stagnation and lack of progress. Governor Kdvin S. Stuart han ben forced to tbu painlul amy ot educing the recent legislative appropriation some $20,000,0110. Charitable Institu tions, hospitals and homes were forced to suffer to the extent of the gov- ?rnor's pruning. Many other pieces of legislation, generally agreed to be good, were vetoed by Governor Stuart cn account of the shortage of funds, and this shortage was the direct re sult of Insufficient taxation. hot the free trader argue, there lore, thut the tariff is a lax. That ar gument Is without foundation and without weight because if the tax Is Just and laid for the express purpose of raising revenue the whole country profits and no argument against a Just system or taxation will istni'.d whether tlio tariff be a tax or the tax be a tariff. One of the 'loftiest charges made against the tariff Is that it creates and fosters trusts. The fact Is that the air of the whole country was tilled with profound arginienls agalnrt the tariff long before trusts wore known to this country. Years ago Andrew Carnegie, the very head and heart of the great steel trust, declared for free trade. In fact ever since Its crea tion tho steel trust hns been decidedly Indifferent ns to whether this country should or should not have a protective (ariff. The great oil trust can In no way he connected with the tariff, but the thousands upon thousnnds of em ployes In these two great trusts are decidedly In favor of a tariff which will protect them In their determina tion to Fecure fair wnges for a fair day's work. What the country wants now and what It Is certain of gelling within a very short time Is a continuation of a protective tariff and that tariff must be based upon nn equal and an exact system of taxation. The Democratic state convention to nominate candidates for justice of the supreme court, auditor general and state treasurer will be held some time In August. This was Informally decid ed on at a meeting .of the state ex ecutive committee held In Hnrrlsburg recently, but the selection of a date was left to the new executive commit tee which Is to be named at the meet ing of the stale central committee In Ilarrlsburg July 21. hanibrrlnln'a IJulmrnt. This is new preparation and a good one. It Is especially valuable as a cure for eh roti io and muscular rheumatism, and Tor the relief from pain which it affords in acute Inflammatory rheuma tism. Those who bave used it have In variably spoken of it in tbe highest terms of praise. Lame back, lame shoulder and stiff neck are due to rheumatism of tbe muscles, usually brought on by exposure to cold or damp, and are quickly cured by applying tbls liniment freely and massaging tbe affected parts. Soreness of tbe muscles, whether induced by vio lent exercise or Injury, Is allayed by .tbls liniment. For sale by Dunn A Fulton. It E.M IKK All I.E.
