IN his address delivered at Hamilton, Mass., Mr. Taft declared
himself in favor of revision of the tariff, but he unhesitatingly
condemned the sort of revision that would make a "tariff for
• politics only." That phrase supplies a vivid
j characterization of the sort of revision rushed
through congress by a combination of demo
crats and discontented republicans tager to
I "put Taft in a hole." The president met the
E with his usual courage, refusing to permit the business inter
ests of the country to be made the plaything of politics.
The miscellaneous measures hastily put together by log rolling
and compromise presented an example of the old fashibned political
tinkering, without regard for principle or facts, that has character
ized the tariff making of the past, with the result of creating a series
of national scandals. There was no secret about the process. As
Senator La Follette remarked in the conference between committees
of the houses, they were working with "blacksmith tools."
This is not the sort of revision that Taft desires. The tariff
commission now engaged in the examination of schedules will supply
congress with a carefully compiled mass of information that should
enable the lawmaking body to revise the tariff with scientific and
not with blacksmith tools. The schedules should be revised on their
several merits and not by the process of bargaining that resulted in
the making of the wool tariff as it came from the hands of La Follette
and L Tnderwood. Mr. Taft describes the process:
"The bills bear internal evidence of the fact that they rested
on a basis of not "tariff for revenue only,' 1 but "tariff for politics
only." The first—the wool bill—was introduced in the house by
Underwood, the democratic leader, with the statement that it was a
free trade bill and was not intended to provide protection to the
wool or woolen industry, but that the 20 per cent tax which was
placed on raw wool imported into this country was made necessary
as a revenue measure by the prospect of a deficit in the national
Mr. Taft Desires
This was a most profound error, made by Underwood, through a
mistake in adding up the columns of the estimated revenues and
expenditures, so that instead of a deficit, as suggested, there is in
reality a surplus of $40,000,000. Though this error was made known
to him, the 20 per cent tax upon raw wool was nevertheless retained.
The measure then passed as a free trade measure to the senate
of the United States, where, being defeated, the democrats and the
so called republican insurgents united in passing as a substitute the
amendment of a bill prepared by La Follette on the floor, without
reference to or investigation by any committee. The bill went to
conference and emerged after a further -compromise providing a duty
of 29 per cent on raw wool and an average of 49 per cent on woolen
manufactures. This compromise was adopted.
Thus the bill is seen to be a compromise between avowed free
traders and avowed protectionists, a bill conceived in an unnatural
alliance, a bill the product of political log rolling for the purpose of
securing its passage, a bill framed in ignorance of the exact effect
operation and a bill that presents only those methods in its
adoption which had been generally condemned in the making of
previous tariff bills.
This variety of revision was discredited long ago. It takes no
account of the manufacturing and commercial interests concerned,
but is framed solely to promote political ambitions and personal ends.
The wool bill was made by two men—La Follette and Underwood—
and not by congress. They worked, as La Follette admitted, with
"blacksmith tools," but they were in a big hurry to "put Taft in
a hole.''
Even more hastily and with the same "blacksmith tools" they
licked into shape a farmers' free list bill and a revision of the cotton
schedule, with sundry amendments of the steel and other schedules
hurriedly tacked on, with the most perfunctory and casual regard
for the enormous interests concerned in the proposed legislation.
We shall have tariff revision in due time and after orderly con
sideration of the merits, but as long as Mr. Taft has anything to say
about it the work will be done with knowledge and not with "black
smith tools" used to promote personal ambitions or to gratify
political resentments.
NEW YORK can teach California a lesson in the way of deal
ing with combinations to advance the price of food and th<
necessaries of life. Comparisons may be odious, but it i;
nevertheless pertinent and useful to contrast
the results obtained in New York in dealing
with the poultry trust with those that fol
lowed the prosecution of the fish trust ir
, I San Francisco.
The combined poultry dealers of New York city were prose
cuted under the state law against trusts for engaging in a conspiracy
to control the market and on conviction were sentenced to thret
months in the penitentiary and fines of $500 each. In passing sen
tence the court said:
The defendants have been convicted of the crime of conspiracy to
control and monopolize a food product—a crime that is mean and
insidious. They have masqueraded as merchants of good repute while
common morality was stifled in thei~ despicable greed. They have waxed
rich at the expense of poor and ; t elpless consumers. They combined
with the corrupt intent to drive from the field all who were .not in sym
oathy with them, and the jury had no difficulty in finding a verdict against
them. Selfish aggrandisement was their motive, regardless of the law.
When, in 1906, they formed their combination, they controlled 95 per
cent of the product they intended to monopolize, and they ruthlessly
crushed out competition in protecting their power and controlling their
monopoly. The defendants have paid New Jersey dealers not to sell
their products to those outside the combination during holiday time.
They have bought out a slaughter house to prevent their competitors
from securing goods. Their control was not alone absolute, it was
despotic, and their methods in driving poor men out of business were
merciless. The imposition of a fine would absolutely destroy the efficacy
of the verdict rendered by the jury. A prison sentence, even with the
misery it would bring the families of these men, would be vastly more
tffective. *

The Forgetful Mr. Fickert's
Excuses for His Timidity
to tell the people where he stands as regards
San Francisco's vital question. Unlike his
opponent, Ralph L. Hathorn, he declines to avow
openly, manfully, who is his candidate for mayor of
San Francisco.
Hathorn says he is for Rolph for mayor; says
the election of Rolph is the overshadowing issue.
Hathorn declares that he is a candidate for the
office of district attorney because he wants to make
that office dignified, efficient; because he wants to
help Rolph carry out his policies for a bigger,
better, prosperous San Francisco.
Fickert says he is for Fickert for district attor
ney. Fickert says in effect that Fickert and Fick
ert's desire to hold a job are to be raised to the dig
nity of an issue. He offers several other excuses
equally lame, equally futile, equally mistaken.
Fickert is not an issue. No man without a record
of affirmative accomplishment, without the courage
to declare himself on a question that involves the
future of his adopted city, can make his desire to
stay on the public payroll an issue. Fickert is
mistaken about that.
Fickert offers another excuse in the guise of an
explanation for liis timidity. Fickert feels that it
is incumbent upon him to exemplify the spirit of
the primary law. He says that he could not be
I true to the law, for which he has such a touching
regard, if he became a "partisan" or an "affiliate."
Fired with this lofty loyalty to the idealism of
the primary law. Fickert says he refused to accept
the republican indorsement for district attorney.
For. weeks his deputies and his friends claiming
equal justice to members of the San Francisco fish trust, whose
methods were every bit as vicious as those employed by the New
York poultry dealers. Conspiracies of the sort here described con
stitute the very worst form of trust, but the state law of California
does not appear competent to deal with them or the machinery of the
courts is too lame to accomplish its purpose.
TJ ARRY N. ATWOOD'S cross country flight appears to have
H done more for practical aviation that the whole series of
*■ ■* "meets" devoted to hippodroming and spectacular feats.
■ . Atwood appears to have had his machine as
much under control as an engineer with his
locomotive. With rare exceptions he has
maintained his time schedule, and he has usu-
I ally succeeded in reaching his appointed dcs-
in Aviation
tination at the hour assigned.
It is true that on one occasion he lost his bearings and wandered
from his course, but the error did not prove serious. He describes
his experience thus:
It was the most exciting experience in the air I ever had. After
ascending at Lyons I looked at the map and concluded I could > find
my way to Auburn, where I knew a lot of people would be disap
pointed if they did not see the aeroplane. I had gone ten miles,
perhaps, when away from the railroad tracks I was completely at a
loss to know where Auburn was. There was not a sign or a road
or anything to indicate the direction. I kept on going, sometimes
rising to a high altitude in hope of seeing the town from afar.
The more T went .the more confused I became. Soon my gasoline
began to run low and I knew if I landed out there I might be miles
away from a new supply.
Finally I shot off in a tangent southward and in a short time,
to my great joy, I beheld what I took to be the buildings of the
Auburn penitentiary. A few minutes later I landed there. The
reason I did not leave Auburn sooner was that there were such
crowds there, without police protection, that I had to fight the people
back. I got into the air again as soon as possible, determined to
make Utica without stopping. Just west of Syracuse darkness over-
took me and I had to land.
This experience appears to point a difficulty that lies in the
path of the aviator. He can not always find his way and is dependent
on his knowledge of landmarks. If he should be called on to fly by
night there would be extreme difficulty about "keeping to the road."
THE first appearance of China in the international field as a
world power is signalized by the demand made by the empire
for $16,500,000 compensation from the republic of Mexico by
— . reason of the massacre of Chinese subjects at
Torreon during the insurrection that drove
■ Diaz from power. It is scarcely likely tliat a
demand of this character would be advanced
, _J if it could not be supported by physical force.
The movement for arbitration among the nations derives its present
strength not so much from the sense of justice as from the fact that
it is usually cheaper than war. It is pretty well established that no
nation, whether successful or otherwise, makes a profit by going to
war. In time the nations will come to accept arbitration because it
is just, but we have scarcely reached that stage of evolution yet.
It is the fact, then, that should hostilities arise, China would be
able to inflict considerable injury on Mexico. Judged by modern
standards, the Chinese navy is not an imposing force, but it is big
enough to destroy anything Mexico could set against it. The Chinese
have a squadron of four competent cruisers and two others are
building. Mexico has four gunboats and one cruiser. The advantage
of military position, therefore, lies altogether on the side of China
in this controversy.
This is sufficient to support the demand and put it in shape for
diplomatic adjustment, in which, doubtless, Uncle Sam will be asked
to intervene as judge or arbiter.

HP* HE importance of the state fair at Sacramento gains in general
j recognition all over California. More and more the several
counties are using this event as a competent means to make
j known the industrial potentialities of their
climate, soil and other resources. In that
sense a visit to the fair supplies a liberal edu
cation in the boundless productive capacity of
, I this region of infinite variety.
Nowhere in America can so wide a variety of finished products
be gathered together under a single roof to show what can be accom
plished in one highly favored region—the region that lies between
the Sierra and the sea. We produce in perfection everything that
can be raised in ultramontane America, but we can supply a hundred
other products besides of which this state has a practical monopoly
as far as this continent is concerned.
Everybody should visit the lair. It is a pleasant and gracious
custom that sets apart specific days for what may be called county
visiting. San Francisco and Alameda and other important counties
will have their several days during the week, and these occasions
should bring crowds of visitors.
There will be plenty of amusement as well as instruction to be
had at the state fair. The harness racing and other sports and games
will supply an endless variety of entertainment. Sacramento is a
delightful town to visit, well supplied with comfortable hotels. i

tives of several public service corporations, be
sieged the republican headquarters. They way
laid members of the republican county committee.
They pleaded, cajoled, promised, begged the repub
licans to indorse Fickert. He was turned down.
Fickert is mistaken or forgetful about that.
Fickert declares that he will have none of the
partisanship that is contrary to the spirit of the
direct primary law. He will be Fickert's candi
date for Fickert. The declaration is quite like
If Fickert is. so violently opposed to partisan
ship, if he refuses to be an "affiliate," why does
he not repudiate the indorsement of the union
labor party as represented by the McCarthy
organization ?
If, Mr. Fickert, you decline to be the tail to any
man's kite, why do you not return to Mayor
McCarthy the indorsement he gave you in the
name of his party? If you refuse to bow to
partisan yokes, why do you appear on the same
platform with Mayor McCarthy, unwilling to voice
the pledge you made as a prerequisite to the right
to stand on that platform, or afraid to repudiate it?
You, Mr. Fickert, are the only candidate for any
important office who has not told the people where
he stands on the one big question—the mayoralty
question. The people want to know where you
stand, Mr. Fickert. They are going to find out
from your own lips or they are going to accept
your actions, not your excuses, as the true answer
to their question. Mr. Fickert, make no mistake
about that.

The man San Francisco should place

He is a man In every sense of the word
making his way up in life from a
humble beginning to a position of re
spect in both social and business lines.
Rolph has refused to ally himself
with any one political faction, and it
has been due entirely to this fact that
he has received the unanimous support
of the substantial voting element In
Ban Francisco.
P. H. McCarthy, the joke mayor of
graft ridden San Francisco, will have a
hard road to travel at the next election
in that city. By his conduct in office
he has proved himself not only incom
petent, but wholly unfit to direct the
destinies of a city from a moral view
point. He has allied himself with the
worst element present In the bay city,
and the substantial wing of even the
union labor party will undoubtedly
repudiate him at the poll?.

A Bible Lesson As Expounded
RICHMOND, Va., Aug. 27.—
Pastor Russell of Brooklyn
Tabernacle preached here to
day under the auspices of the
International Bible Students
association (local branch—un
sectarian), composed of the
truth hungry from all denom
inations. Asked why such
great crowds always attend
his addresses -while the
churches of all denominations
are complaining of slim at
tendance. Pastor Russell re
plied. "The people are think
ing. Perplexed 'by the infi
delity and higher criticism
taught in the principal
colleges and pulpits, many
desire to have an interpretation
of the Bible consistent with itself
and not at war with the rever
ential exercise of reason. The scrip
tures foretell our day. saying, 'There
shall be a famine in the land: not a
famine for bread nor a thirst for
water, but for the hearing of the wor.l
of the LorJ' (Amos viii:ll). No fairy
tales can thoroughly satisfy intelli
gent thinkers, whose numbers are in
creasing. Many of those who attend
my services and many who read my
sermons in the public print, long since
ceased to attend the church services."
Two services w<»r»» held—one for the
public, considering the great "Here
after:' the other, which we report, had
for its text God's call to Cain after he
had slain his brother, and Cain's re
ply, "Where is thy brother?"—"Am I
my brother's keeper?" (Genesis iv:9).
The speaker said in part:
No one can dispute that individual
ism, personal independence, personal
responsibility has done much for the
development of our race. The serf
dom and paternalism of the past were
unfavorable to individual thought, re
sponsibility and action. No wise and
good man would desire to rob his fel
lows of independence of mind.
We are in danger, however, of go
ing to the opposite extreme—in danger
of carrying the subject of personal in
dependence too far—in danger of neg
lecting some who should hay* assist
ance—in danger of thinking of all men
as being not only free but equal.
It was in view of inequalities of the
flesh that St. Paul wrote to the church.
"We that are strong should bear with
the infirmities of the weak, and not to
please ourselves (merely}" (Romans
xv:l>. This principle, applied by the
Apostle to the Church, would certain
ly be appropriate and beneficial to the
entire human family—"Of one blood
God create.! all men to dwell upon the
face of the whole earth" (Acts xvii:26).
God's inquiry of C%ln implied hie re
sponsibility, and teaches us a lesson
respecting our responsibility in God's
sight for one another. We will begin
with the church, the highest type of
brotherhood imaginable: We should
not be content to split into sects and
parties. Whatever was the ignorance
of the past which led to the formation
of the various creeds and denomina
tions, there can be no excuse for these
now, because Christians of all denom
inations have come to discredit the
old creeds. Should there not, then, be
a movement toward heart unity and
fellowship, outside of denominational
and creedal lines, among those who
is capable of giving, and decent people
of the city care for no more of it.
Civic affairs at San Francisco have
reached a crisis and Rolph seems to be
the man generally looked up to to tide
the city over the crisis. It is predicted
by many that he will be elected at the
"Salvation of True Unionism",
From the Stockton Mall
A vote for Rolph is a vote for the
salvation of true labor unionism, and a
vote for McCarthy is a vote for the
damnation of all unionism.

recognize God as the Father,
the Lord Jesus Christ as the
Redeemer, and the Bible a■*
the Divine Revelation? It is
not proper to say. as did Cain,
"Am I my brother's keeper?"
Every true Christian should
realize that today Christianity
is being assaulted in its own
house and by its professed
friends. In the colleges ami
seminaries of all denomina
tions a battle is raging which
threatens the destruction of
our Christian faith. Possibly
a few are blind to the situa
tion, but the insurgents— the
Higher Critics and Evolution
ists —realize the situation and
are craftily saying to the people, 'fWe
are the watchmen upon the walls of
Zion; hearken to our cry; all is well!"
These Higher Critics seem to have
no conscience. They claim that
the people must be gradually taken
by guile. They encourage them t<">
sleep while they raise over them
the banner of infidelity called High
er Criticism.
Many who see the killing of this
antitypical Abel shirk the responsibil
ity by saying, "Am I my brother's
keeper?" not realizing 1 that from the
Divine standpoint they have a respon
sibility toward every other Christian
with whom they are in contact. They
ishould realize that loyalty to God
means that they shouKl "show forth
the praises of Him who hath called
us out 6f darkness into His jnarvelous
light." In a word, every true Chris
tian, who has made a full consecra
tion of himself to the L.ord to walk
in the footsteps of the Savior, should
waken to the fact that we are in a
critical time. We are in the time men
tioned by St. Paul when "every man's
work shall be tried so as by flre" (I
Corinthians iii:l3).
The all seeing eye of our Creator
keeps watch over the affairs of His
creatures today as it kept watch over
Abel's interest!". God allowed Cain to
have his way; allowed him to kill his
brother; allowed the righteous to suf
fer; yet Cain did not escape, but was
held accountable for the death of his
brother. God's sentence upon him sep
arated him from his brethren until he
cried out that his punishment was
greater than he could bear.
And similarly we may be sure that
the Cain class of our day will be held
