H. L. Snyder, Editor and Publisher. Shepherd* to* n. W. Va. * - ? Thursday, - - - May 25th, 1V22 -J - THE TARIFF. The tariff bill now before the Senate can't stand the light of publicity that is being turned upon it by the Democrats. It is about th? worst that has ever been proposed. and even its friends are ashamed of it It may be passed by an ill-advised party, but it wOl not be long before it is repudiated by the people. A50THEK SHOC K. The Republican machine of Pennsylvania was thrown all out of gear by the primary' election in the Keystone State last week Cifford Pinchot. an independent progressive candidate for Governor, won over Alter, the "regular" candidate, by a majority of lb.000, when by all calculations of the bosses Alter should have several hundred thousand majority. The Old Guard Republicans are simply stunned by the result, following so soon after the defeat of Senator New in Indiana, and thev are unnitcrino - ?-* * - *v pen next. This seems to be a real bad year1 the old-time politicians?but it is on the other hand a mighty good season for the masses of the people who are so easily ridding themselves of the bosses who have been riding them so j hard Now for Lodge, in Massachusetts! IN A TIGHT PIJVCE. The personal and political opponents of Attorney-General Harry M. Daugh-, crty have gotten that gentleman into a j pretty tight place Senator Caraway ( charged that Mr. Haugherty had been seriously mixed up in the very questionable proceedings by which Charles T. Morse, a notorious New York financial crook, had been delivered from the penitentiary. This was before Mr. Daugherty was made Attorney-General, artd perhaps was not worse than things that other lawyers not over-scrupulous do for big fees Unfortunately for the Afforney-General, however, he recently ri?de denial of certain facts in conn-sction with the Morse affair that are row substantiated by written documents, and he is not only in a hole him'' but he has put some eminent gen *men who defer.Jed him in a most unr'er-sant predicament This is an embarrassment to Pres'e-t Harding administration that H trust worry it very considerably, and mcers will r.ot be helped very much <n if Mr Daugherty should resign vr?T SO HAD. * n audit of Test Virginia's finanshows that *he treasury is in fairlv n I circums'-trees, even sithout the i rme of that 'he S'ntc was I uep-'ved of when the United S'.vcs Su ic Coun d *.|jred the p-jvilege tax oil and g.?-, transported to othc illegal id thi ren js us *.. more ''?

S2.6I was plenty high enough. The reason given by the man- , ufacturers for the increase is that the ' coal strike has caused an advance in cost of making crment. Concrete roads are admitted to be among the best of the permanent types of hard roads. The demand for cement, of course, is enormous, and the combination that controls the industry sees a chance to make its high j price, still higher and jumps its quotations to unreasonable and extortion- j ute rates which road builders will not ho lustifled in meeting They will b? d-iven t > other types of road because of the greediness of the cement man- ; l ufi?cturers. | , It'. as hard now as ever to resist tl e impulse to kill the goose that lays | the golden eggs.
