In a speech made in the United States senate just hefrjre the adjourn ment of congress. Mr. Dolliver paid his respects to President Taft's Winons Bpeech in which the latter had charac terised the, Payne-Aldrich tariff law as "the best tariff law ever enacted." In the course of his speech President Taft referred to a statistical table with which he had been furnished, which ; showed decreases of the tariff in fi;>4 j items Involving a consumption value : of $ri.nno.ono,ooo. After characterizing the statistics used by the president as "That anonymous scrap of statistical try, a curious table made up by a paymaster in the army," iir. Dolli ver continued: "Now, only a slight glance at those | statistics, Imperfect and misleading as they are, would have Indicated that , these reductions were in most cases bo small as to have no value to the pub lic, that a full third of the number were yarns and threads of cotton, jute and linen ready for weaving Into cloth, and that nearly all of the 15,000,000,000 of consumption is made up either of food products which we export, or raw ! materials like coal, iron ore, petro leutn and the hides of cattle, or partly manufactured materials like pig iron, | scrap iron, tonnage steel, and sawed lumber ready for the planing mill. The public has asked, and asked in vain, I for anybody to point out a reduction whirii has any commercial significance of any sort. . .

The forth coming visit of Congressman James W. Lloyd of Missouri, chairman of i! ■ national congressional campaign "i thu party, ant] of T. F.

This of Itself will Inspli r ■ onfldence to a degree that the party has never be fore enjoyi d. The visit of Mr.'Anderson doea not mi vi that the Democracy of Southern California are committed t" the can didacy of Polk, although the noted 1 - p vi" Missouri has a large fol io ■ In rea bouts ' ecause of his i ec ord and recognized ability. They aro to give hi" friends a chance t" present his claims as a presidential possibility.

NOT SO SURE 1 WASHINGTON dispatch to The A WASHINGTON dispatch Cannon I [erald reports Uncle Joe Cannon *-*■ as leaving that city for his home in Danville, in fine health and spirits, and adds: It Is his purpose to go to Win- Held, Kas., and there speak In be half of the renomlnatlon of Repre sentative Philip Campbell, one of the Btandpat congressmen. Uncle Joe will then return to his district, take an automobile and make a house to house canvass. He insists there Is no danger that he will not be re-elected. What has become of tho jaunty confidence of the speaker who has up to this time scouted the insurgent movement? Mr. Cannon's plurality to the Fifty-ninth congress was close to 15,000, and to the Sixtieth congress over 10,000. His district has been re garded as a cinch. He never before had to make a house to house canvass. He never even made speeches for him self, but devoted his time to helping out other candidates. If Insurgency In the west is on the wane, as his former errand boy, Sunny Jim Sherman, has assured him, why is It necessary now to heed the Mace donian cry of Campbell? Passing by this consideration, we should say that the opponent of Camp bell, whoever he is, is playing In great luck if Uncle Joe is really going to project himself into the district, ft Is worth something these days to a can didate to have the speaker's hostility. Those boosters who fire planning a 300-foot driveway from Los Angeles are eight-cylinder optimist*. As it would cost only a few billion dollars the passage of special laws by a score of legislatures and perhaps an appro priation by the federal government, let the thing be done forthwith.

Triumph Made to Order - (Pacific Outlook) The Stand Pat organs nil over the country have made the moat of a greajt triumph recently achieved by the machine Republican faction of Wis consin. According to the special wires, there was a.state Republican conven tion in insurgent Wisconsin which strongly indorsed the president and his policy, upheld Balllnger, condemn* d insurgency and boosted the new tariff law. Vice President Sherman, the oleaginous "Sunny Jim" who makes a specialty of fighting off laws for sani tation in factories in New York, ad dressed the meeting. Telegrams were exchanged betweel the gathering ana Mr. Tuft, full of smiles Mid "loyalty." It was certainly I great day. All true with one slight amendment —too trifling, perhaps, to warrant a correction wire the day after, it wasn't a state Republican convention it all, nor any other kind of a Republican e<|nvention. It was Just an Informal, nfade-to-order stand-pat gathering. A couple ol antl-LaFolletto people ap pointed - themselves a committee and called i state conference. Wisconsin has a direct primary law, like ours only more so, and state conventions arc not called by any such off-hand process as this. The delegates to this fake were not elected by the voters, they were "chosen" by various pro cesses, chiefly through being named by the local machine boss— as of yore li the day* before LaKollotto broke up corporation politics in Wisconsin. No one will question the right of stond-patters to get together and brace themselves up by an exchange of sym pathy, Oood thing. Wo reformers used to do that way in the past, when we were rank outsiders. Hut we did not try to flimflam the public by claim- Ing to bo "the Republican convention of 'Wisconsin" or anything dee of that kind. These made-to-order triumphs are tine for the first thrill, but they do not last. In course of time everybody in the country will learn of the fraud that has been practiced in Wisconsin —everybody with the exception of Mr. Taft, and it is possible that even he may come* to learn of It finally—;" California's Great Oil Fields Since the discovery of America it is estimated that the told production of this r.niMiry has been about |J,454,418, --mm. Government statistics show that since ls">y. when oil was first struck in Pennsylvania, there has been ex ported from the United stales crude and refined oil to the value of approx imately W,800,96ft,0Wi Since California leads the country in oil products n, some i'l.M of the magnitude of this greatest of California's resources may be had. probably nowhere else in the whole world have sin h enormous anil steady Incomes been returned as from the California oil fields. .Numerous In stances are on record of companies paying their stockholders many times over '.be amount ot the initial Invest ment i'l two or three year.-, and sev eral companies art paying from 16-to ;;,, p e r cent per month In dividends.

When the present wings were added to the cap itol the old house of representatives ' was turned into a statue gallery, while the senate chamber was given over to the sessions of the supreme court. Each state was to place two statues of its most eminent men In the gallery, and Virginia began with Washington. New York With Fulton and Maryland with Charles Carroll of Carrollton. Gradually the other states have added some of their notable men, until today thegallery Is well filled with statues, If not With works of art. Of late years I the west has placed some of its lead ing characters among the fathers or the east. Wisconsin selected Mat auette for the honor and Washington Marcus Whitman. Now it is proposed by Congressman,Kahn to have Cali fornia represented by Father Junlpero How to Sleep Outdoors "Directions for living and sleeping In the open air" Is the title of a pamphlet being sent out today by the National Association tor the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis to its local representatives in all parts of the United States. The pamphlet is meant to be a hand book of information for anybody who desires to Bleep out i- doors in his own home. It emphasizes the fact that out door sleeping is as desirable for the well as for sick, The booklet will be sent free of charge to anyone applying for it at the headquarter* of the Na tional Association for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis in New York, or to the secrntary of any local or Btate antl-tuberouiosls association. gome of the subjects of which the pamphlet treats are how to take the open-air treatment in a tenement house; how to build a small shack or "California John's" Ethics (Stewart Edward White In American Magazine) "Back in the fifties," said California John, "i made up an account between me and the Lord.

T used to Qgure out on the other elde where the Lord hadn't treated me square. I figured tho stand-pat cause will Rain nothing but lose rnther in the transaction. The California made-to-order triumph for the reactionaries took a somewhat different form and contained no at tempt at iHception. The state central committee, which was made up after the state convention two years ago, when tho machine was still in the sad dle and which is, of course, over whelmingly Southern Pacific in its sympathies, met recently In San Fran cisco, Indorsed the administration of Taft. commended the Aldrleh tariff and Woverjior Glllett's administration, and took a shot at Insurgency. Thai was all very well and to be expected. The local reactionary organ says that this action by the state committee is a source of Rreat embarrassment to Hiram Johnson. Maybe so. Such con duct is enough to embarrass any sin cere Republican. Hut what followed was worse. An Innocent Kuy from Fresno named Chester Rowell, who happens to be president of tho Jjlncnln- Rooseveli movement, and also a mem ber of the state Republican committee, brought in a resolution —-O. Chester, how could you do it! -denouncing the Southern Pacific in politics and declar ing that It was tho purpose of the Republican party to clear itself of such Influences In the future. This was one 6f those diabolical contrivances — "springes to catch woodcocks," Polo nius calls 'cm that are risßed up to do you, coming or koliir. It Is like the famous court question, "Have you Icl'i "ff beating your wifo yet?" which cannot be answered yes or no without disaster. There was just OM way out — to discuss the situation frankly and pass some kind of a resolution on the subejet—but the machinists worn too stupid to do anything so complicated. S.i nnemey. They tallied the resolution amid ffreat uproar, and let it gs at that. DM this also embarrass Hiram Johnson, the anti-Southern Pacific can didate for the Hepuhllcan nomination? Well, not so that It Is visible, to tho naked eye. It la the reactionary or gans that are stippresslnß that portion of the story and the progressive ones thai arc giving It publicity. Tims it appears that not even in California, where things used to be so easy, is the made-to-order triumph for the machine an unqualified success. (Flimiu-Uil Chronicle) doubtedly stand without a parallel In the investment world. They combine absolute safety of money Invested with practical certainty of Immense dlvi dends. Government statistics show that less than 1 per cent of California oil companies have fallecr to succeed in the last do/en years, or, In short, ever since the Industry has been on a sure footing by the adoption of oil as fuel for railroads. Any business which gives V.i per cent of successes may be held to offer extraordinary attractions to conservative Investors. Attention of the whole world Is rap idly being focused on California on account of its great oil development, mi with the enlightenment of the peo ple • afl to the wonderful Investment possibilities of California oil there will come the greatest boom that this state has ever experienced, not even except ing the boom days of '49. There will bo fortunes made in the oil fields. Fortunes are already being made, and there is morn oil untouched in California than has ever been tapped. The oil companies listed on the Cali fornia Oil and Stock exchange paid in dividends last year about $8,000,000. That is what the oil industry is doing in its infancy.
