Already Democratic brethren ax* beginning to smack their lips over the prospect of filling the various of floofl thai belong to the house of rep resentatives at Washington. The re doubtable George W. Summers, who contributes a syndicated article to the Democratic press of the staute, es timates that there are about 900 good Jobs that will be open to Democrats, and he thinks West Virginia should get some of those. Mr. Summers calls the roll of the various positions,) fixes the value in dollars and cents of each one, and concludes his inter esting summary as follows: "It looks like a clean sweep of all the present 900 employes or more, and the replacing of them by good Democrats. And it also looks as though there would be some West Virginians among the 900 or more employes to be named by Democratic congressmen. At any route. with, the house certain to be either Democratic or insurgent, and with none but "stand-patters" running on the Repub lican ticket in Wes>t Virginia for con press, the chances of West Virginia Democrats for filling some of these jositions are much more flattering than the chances of any Republican from West Virginia getting any of them in the next house." : 7 This gives a pretty fa\ir understand ing of the aims, purposes apd objects of Democracy in West Virginia. Ex cept for the occasional office and the more or less remote prospect of fur ther official reward, Democracy in West Virginia has no object in being and has had no object for the pas? twenty years. It lias opposed or re tailed practically every reform ftjid every piece of progressive legislation that has been written upon the stat ute books. It has botn the willing tool and servant of every corporation that has seen fit to put^certain lead ers upon its pension rolls. It has been the obedient slave of the rail roads, of the oil companies, and the gas companies. It has sold the name of Democracy to tax dodgers and cor poration lobbyists. The prosptct of a few jobs to bo scattered around may serve to bring new life for a ohort time to this putrifying political body, but even the jobs, however abundant, "will not bo able to revive it permanently. A VICTIM'S TESTIMONY A Ln borer Who Hasn't Forgotten Previous P inches. A workingman who has felt the pinches of that disastrous period in the country's history when the Dem ocrats were in power has written to the Pittsburg Gazette-Times warning his fellow workers about being taken in by the smooth words of I be Deimv cratic tariff revisionists of today. The writer says that ho "distinctly re members the arguments made by Democrats that $i would produce $2 worth and everything would be cheap, but it haa' turned out that American labor watf (he cheapest thing in the j country, and the low tariff farmer got stung. Wheat and coin could not be sold; wheat was fed to stock and everything else got cheap because the people went 'broke.* The government also went 'broke,' and President Cleveland had to sell bonds to meet expenses. Now. we don't want to put the country back to such a condition. My advice to the workingman is: Don't be fooled ?t:to voting for a low tariff officeseeker, because you will get. the worst of it if you do." Tli at is advice coming from one who knows. It is the plea of the Democratic free traders that under lower tariffs everything will be c heap So they will. So will wages be lower, when work can be. obtained, but what i* th? good of cheaper products when there is no money to purchase ttoom with. This was the case in those borrowful years of the Wilson-Gor man bill. Everything was cheap, but there was no work for the working men to earn a pittance to buy tho cheap things. In those d^ays the farm er couldn't sell because tho purchas ing power of the consumer was re duced to an lnsdgnlficanjt minimum, and he, too, suffered as there was no market for his wheat, corn and other products. Are the people going to forget those days of desolation anil want, into which they were once bun coed by the fair premises and alleged advantages of "lower tariff?" EDUCATING THE CITIZEN. The public night schools have al ways done much to educa-to the for eigner, unschooled In English and often ignorant of it altogether. He learned to read and write there. De ficiencies in his education in the "three H's" were made good. But he needed more. An adult, In telligent and often well educated in his own tongue, the foreigner did not like studying with hoys ami girls of 14 to 18. He dHl not gain what he most yeam^d for- training in his du ties and rights a? a future citizen, ac.iuaintarne with the constitution and the knowledge he neede to pafce the dreaded court examination by federal judges when he is natural ized. This haft Justly come to be a seri ous and valid test of a would-be citi zen's knowledge of the principles, structure and working of the federal and Ktate systems. A man seeking to be naturalized Is expected to know how old a man mu?t be before he can be chosen a federal senator and who succeeds the vice president if president an/1 vice prudent both die. Training for citizenship Is greatly needed by th^se foreigners who seek citizenship. ? IMiiVadtlphla Press. ma hktvgt: tt n:\sKs W. W. Drincgar 38, Alice Cobb 18, \ X, ? ? From President's Message On Canadian Reciprocity | V N my annuai message of Dec. 6, ; ? 1010, I stated that the policy of I broader anil closer trade rela- 1 tions with the Dominion of Can- 1 ada which was Initiated in the adjust ment of the maximum ami minimum provisions of the tariff act of Aug. 5, 1000, had- proved mutually beneficial and that It justified further efforts for j the readjustment of the commercial t relations of the two countries. On the 7th of the present month two j cabinet ministers came to Washington as representatives of the Dominion government, and the conferences were continued between them and the sec retary of state. The result of the ne- j gotiations was that on the 21st inst. a ; reciprocal trade agreement was reached. .One by one the controversies result ing: from the Uncertainties which at tended the partition of British terrU tory on the American continent at the close of the Revolution and which were inevitable under the then conditions have been eliminated, some by arbitra tion and some by direct negotiation. The path having been thus opeued for the improvement of commercial re lations, a reciprocal trade agreement is the logical sequence of all that has been accomplished in disposing of mat ters of a diplomatic and controversial character. The identity of interest of two peoples linked together by race, language, political institutions and geo graphical proximity otYers the founda tion. The guiding motive in seeking ad justment of trade relations between two countries so situated geographical ly should be to give play to productive forces as far as practicable, regardless of political boundaries. While equiva lency should be sought in an arrange ! ment of this character, an exact bal I ance of financial gain is ^either imper ative nor attainable. No yardstick can I measure the benefits to the two peo ples of this freer commercial inter course, and no trade agreement should be judged wholly by custom house sta I tistics. We have reached a stage in our own development that calls for a states manlike and broad view of our future economic status and its requirements. We have drawn upon our natural re sources in such a way as to invite at tention to their necessary limit. This has properly aroused effort to conserve them, to avoid their waste and to re strict their use to our necessities. We have so increased in population and in our consumption of food products and the other necessities of life, hitherto supplied largely from our own country, that unless we materiully increase our production we can see before us a change in our economic position from that of a country, selling to the world food and natural products of the1 farm and forest to one consuming and im porting them. Ought we not, then, to arrange a com mercial agreement with Canada, if we can. by which we shall have direct ac cess to her great supply of natural products without an obstructing or prohibitory tariff? This is not a vio lation of the protective principle, as that lias been authoritatively ' an nounced by those who uphold it, be cause that principle does not call for a tariff between this country and one whose conditions as to production, population and wages are so like ours and when our common boundary line of 3,000 miles in itself must make a radical distinction between our com mercial treatment of Canada and of any other country. The Dominion has greatly prosper ed. It has an active, aggressive and intelligent people. They are coming to the parting- of the ways. They must soon decide whether they are to regard themselves as isolated per manently from our markets by a per petual wrall or whether we are to be commercial friends. If we give them reason to take the former view can we complain if they adopt methods deny ing access to certain of their natural resources except upon conditions quite unfavorable to us? A notable instance of such a possibility-may bo seen in the conditions surrounding the supply of pulp wood and the manufacture of print paper, for which we have made a conditional provision in the agree ment, believed to be equitable. The entire foreign trade of Canada in the last fiscal year, 1910, was $655, 000,000. The imports were $376,000, 000, and of this amount the United States contributed more than $223,000, 000. The reduction in the duties im posed by Canada will largely increase this amount and give us even a larger share of her market than we now en joy, great as that is. Since becoming a nation Canada has been our good neighbor, immediately contiguous across a wide continent without artificial or natural barrier ex cept navigable waters used in com mon. She hna cost us nothing In the wny of preparations for defense against her possible assault, and she never will. She has sought to agree with ns quickly when differences have dis turbed our relations. She shares with us common traditions and aspirations. I feel I have correctly interpreted the wish of the American people by ex pressing in the arrangement now sub mitted to congress for its approval their desire for a more intimate and cordial relationship with Canada. ( therefore earnestly hope that the meas firo will be promptlv enacted into law. WILLIAM IL TAFT The White House, Jan. 20, 1911. Kanawha county.

Charles Finney last night carved Jack Starr about the face with a Har low. and was himself later badly han dled by James Nutter who did as best he could to protect Starr. Roth Starr and Finney were taken to l)r. Barber's hospital where they were given medical and surgical treatment. The fights were the re sult of an altercation which came about over a gambling game on Vir ginia street. Friends of Starr made an effort to save him from the on slaught of Finney but failed for some time. After Finney was placed in the hospital and his wounds had been treated he escaped and diti not wait for a formal release. This morning he was arrested and placed in the city jail by Capt. M. J. Ilaggerty of tho police force. Starr also left the hospital, notwithstanding the orders of the doctors and is now on the streets, "although he is suffering with injuries which will leave their marks as long as he lives. All those who saw the tight are in clined to keep still about it and the full story has not been obtained.
