Moreover, since the tariff Is the outgrowth of certain existing con ditions, no two countries can, with benefit to themselves have the same tariff each must have the system and details adapted to its particular use. Nevertheless, the same reasons actu ate the tariffs of all countries and ev en two theories as widely separate as free trade and protection are but out growths of the same Idea applied to two widely different conditions. Com plications arise when the free trade idea Is used in a country which de mands protection of industries and vice-versa. Free trade, or tariff for revenue on ly, takes the stand that the protec tive tariff is dangerous because it pro duces artificial conditions in a coun try and this at the expense of the con sumer, who must pay exorbitant arti ficial prices for the product of the industries bo created. "Lot the tariff be only used as a means for obtain ing money to carry on the govern ment. Let industry take its natural channel with . out interference." Hp states that a protective tariff is un democratic because, he says, the money from these great industrias which yon have created does nothing but enrich the few, and improverish the many by raising the prices of com modities. The usual free trade example is the country of England. The British Isles (and not the colonies) are th9 only civilized country which has free trade in operation today. England, the free traders aver, has bad a marked prosperity Bince the in troduction of free trade in the early part of the last century. The advo cates of this theory point to tho great Increase of manufactures, to tho re duction of the price of commodities, to the increase of wages and the trade with all nations. They conclude by stating that what benefited England will benefit us. The theory of a protective tariff is based on the ground that it may be advantageous to encourage by legisla tion, a branch of industry which might profitably bo carried on eventually, but whose rise is prevented by artifi cial or accidential causes. The essen tial point of the argument lies in the assumption that the causes which pre vent the rise and growth of the in dustry and render protection neces sary are not natural and permanent ones. The conditions which justify a pro tective tariff are: Abundance of raw material existing in a country which is largely agricultural. The manufac ture of a certain- product is new, the machinery is unknown, complicated and expensive, the operation of the machines is one which requires skill and experience not attainable ordinar ily. The industry of the country has been fixed by custom and is not easily changed. Here we have a set of con ditions which warrant a protective tariff for otherwise the resources of the country will not be developed and the industry would not have been stated until long after it might profi tably have been engaged In. The most notable illustration of the working of the protective tariff is the history of our own county. In its early history the United States was so particularly set in Its habit of ex changing its agricultural products for the manufactures of Europe, that it was not until twenty 'years after the founding of the republic that manufac tures were engaged In extensively. They arose in response to the demand raised by the non-intercourse and em bargo acts which, were passe on ac count of International complications. Although these acts also worked hard ships because they forbade all com mercethe effect of the laws on manu factures gave the New England states the impetus which they have since maintained in that line. With one exception the tariff history of the United States has in latter years been under the protective tariff la some form. The exception is the Gorman-Wilson bill, which leaned consid erably toward free trade although it was not based on any one principle whatsoever. Those who advocate protection are of two opinions on the subject. ' These are the "standpatters" and the tariff revisionists. The standpatters believe that the tariff should stand as it is without re duction, claiming that the tariff which has benefitted the country in the past will benefit it in the future and moreover, that it is dangerous to bus iness tranquility to disturb the tariff. "Let well enough alone," they say. The tariff revisionists believe firmly in the principles of protection. But they also believe that the business of the country has in most instances been developed and with the exception of a few Industrie?, reciprocity may be profitably engaged in with other coun tries to secure better markets abroad and lower prices at home. In regard to the difference between the free trade which has made Eng land prosperous and protection which has developed the country it should be remembered that a wide difference also exists in two countries. England has practically no resources and Am erica is rich in raw material. It would be, and , was, the height of folly for England to put a protective tariff on raw materials. America on the oth er hand needed only the incentive of the protective tariff to be developed. The colonies of Great Britain, do, in deed furnish a counterpart to the Uni ted States, and every one of these has a protective tariff. Any parallel which is drawn must be with the col onies and not with the home govern ment. Furthermore any argument which makes the tariff entirely responsible for the improvement of industrial con ditions In England neglects the fac tors of unions and education. A tariff .only has an effect as it helps the gen- j eral business conditions. Free trade therefore was not only beneficial but necessary to tlncriand and protection was equally so to the United States. The Palladium believes ia tariff re- 1 vision along protective lines. The re ! vision should be downward in most in stances the exceptions being those which really need it High and low schedules should be adopted for the purpose of reciprocity, i The revision of the tariff in compe . tent hands and accomplished in a careful and scientific way, will work ' no injustice to business it will mean lower prices for the consumer and greater markets abroad for our prod ucts. This the Palladium believes to be the meaning of the republican plat form, the intention of the next con gress, and the desire of Mr. Taft, in M..in!l RacU FOR. OF ARMS COT OFF BY BLACK RAND Awful Revenge of Society on Man Who Was Suspected Of Duplicity. HE NOW APPEALS FOR AID. TELLS NEW YORK POLICE THAT SOCIETY IS STILL AFTER HIM IN ORDER TO FURTHER MAIM HIM FOR LIFE. Newark, N. J., Oct. 30. With both arms cut off and the stumps unhealed, Vlllardo DIpltti, a former member of the Black Hand, appealed to the New ark police for a police guard to pro tect him from the still vengeful mem bers of the band which he deserted and betrayed. DIpltti, who was strangely shipped to this city from Johnstown, Pa., where he had lain unconscious for many days in a hospital, is now liv ing at 143 Jefferson street under the name of Tony Petti, but he told detec tives that the Black Hand was still af ter him and he feared they had plan ned some further means of torturing and maiming him. DIpltti says he joined the Black Hand in Morothorn, W. Va., taking the oath in an abandoned coal mine with a score of members heavily arm ed. Last spring he was suspected of having betrayed one of the members to the police and he was lured to St. ! Michaels, Pa., where, on September 7, last, he was attacked by four men whom he recognized as members of the Black Hand. They dragged him into a switchman's shanty, at the side of a railroad track, he says, and there one of their number, who was a phy sician, cut off both of his hands and arms just below the elbows, while the others held him. He was then, after suffering all the pain of the double amputation, dragged out to the rail road and chloroformed. Whsn he awoke he was in a hospi tal. Church Calendai Friday.

The Senior class at the Richmond nign scnooi expecis to estamisn a precedent at the high school by issu ing a class annual. There are about fifty students in the class this year and they are working with a vim with the hope of being able to get out the publication. Prof. Knouff states that the annual would be a good thing for the Senior class to father because the school now ranks among the largest in the state and is deserving of such a publication. He therefore gives his sanction to the class. The exact date of the birth of Christ is unknown. Among the early churches there was no agreement as to the date of the nativity, some cele brating it in April or May, others in ' January. December 25 can hardly be exact for It falls In the rainy season of Judea, when shepards would not have been watching their flocks by night In the open. The December date came into general observance naturally, but gradually. When the heathen races of the North were Christianized they simply substituted for their Yule celebration, in Decem ber, the observance of the birth of Christ. Had a Close Call. Mrs. Ada L.

The headless body of a man waa found last evening near Toma Creek, twenty miles south of here. All indications point to murder. Near by was- a small leather grip, but all the contents of this had been removed, and Identifica tion is Impossible. The authorities believe that robbery was the motive for the murder. The Professor Mictak. Professor Milne said that when In Canada, at a meeting of the British association, he was invited to give a lecture. The clock struck 8 as be start ed, and be went on all right At a quarter past everything was going splendidly, and he talked till he got to the last sentence. He then looked at the clock and saw that It was pointing to twenty past 8. He was horrified and, looking at the serried ranks in front of him. determined that they should not think that a man who bad come from England had said all he had got to say in twenty minutes. So he began a story to spin out the time. He saw that Lord Kelvin was looking a bit puzzled, but be went on with the yarn till some one bit him on the back and muttered in bis ear: "Shut up. Milne; you have been talking an hour and a half. The clock has stopped." St Jamea Gazette. Ho Lookod Ahaad. A striking Illustration of the chance of war is found in the fact that the American army at Cambridge daring the war of the Revolution would have been left without ammunition but for the prevision of John Brown, a mer chant of Providence, R. I., and one of the family who gave name to the uni versity at the place. Brown was a very wealthy merchant and was the first of the Rhode Island merchants to send bis ships to China and the East Indies. Anticipating the war. he in structed his captains on the return voyage to load their ahipa with pow der, which be furnished to the army when its supply had been restricted to less than four rounds to each man.

MARSHALL SURELY BREWERY CANDIDATE Gov. Hanly Says Certificate of Nomination Carried a Brewery Smell. NAMED BY THEIR SUPPORT. NOMINATION WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE HAD IT NOT BEEN FOR THOMAS TAGGART AND OTHERS. Falrmcunt, Ind.. Oct 30. Governor Hanly In an address to 4tOV persons j here again charged that Thomas K. i Marshall is the brewers candidate for! governor, adding that "his (Marshall's) i certificate of nomination came with the smell of tie brewery upon It." The governor dec.ared Marshall had been ' nominated by 40O votes handed over i by Thomas Taggart in the state con-! vention. He further gave a description of the parade of the Liberal Xeague in Indianapolis; named several brewery officers and saloon men who were in line, and then declared "a man is known by his friends." In this state ment he referred to Mr. Marshall. There were about 2,5oO farmers in the tent where Governor Hanly spoke. The governor said In part: "I have charged and I now repeat the charge that Thomas R. Marshall Is the candidate of the brewers and allied li quor Interests of Indiana. Recently he said "I am not the brewers' candi date. I know fewer brewers than any other man in politics in Indiana.' That may be, but more brewers know him than any other man in politics in In diana. His certificate of nomination came with the smell of the brewery upon it. There was no possibility of his nomination without their support. He was named only through their as sistance. Thomas Taggert the ac knowledged representative of the brewery Interest in Indiana, transfer red to him in a body nearly 40O votes and made his nomination possible. "If but one brewer in Indiana were for him and were giving htm his sup port, contributing his time and sup port, Mr. Marshall would be a brew ers' candidate. If all the brewers in the state are for him, regardless of party affiliation, and all the liquor in terests of the state are for him and they are then he is the brewers' can didate and the candidate of the allied liquor interest of the state."

Acid And Alkali hi The Stomach Digests The Food Naturally If In Right Proportion; If Not: Then Dyspepsia. Acid and alkali make up the liquid known as gastric Juice, which digests your food. If through abuse of the stomach, or weakness of blood or through scores of other causes this gastric Juice is not made up correctly of acid and alkali, xnr stomach cannot digest food. Such a stomach then acts as a pit where the food lies, ferments, decays, is thrown off at last either into the in testines or is vomited from the system. If thrown into the luiestines a large proportion of it is takt-u up and passed into the blood, for tLu intestines are covered on the inside surfaces with millions cf little mourns which are places there to suck up nourishment for the blood. You may readily see that if instead cf good rich nourishment there is vll poisonous fermented bile and acid, these same little mouths suck some of it bv necessity and pass it into the blood. The blood In turn throws it off and the system Is immediately placeo In an imperfect state. The blood Is weakened, the tissues lose strength, the skin becomes dis eased and man in general suffers In a score of places. Then again the blood furnlrhea gas tric Juice to the stomach, for vhen tne gastric Juice is not neefled for- Gigestive purposes it goes back to the blood. When food comes Into the stomach the nerves along the Alimentary Canal and In the mouth signal the brain for help and the blood immediately furnishes sufficient gastric Juice to do the work well and quickly. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets go Into the stomach, balance the gastric Juice, digest the food, are taken up by the blood, purifies it, and when the food comes again to the stomach a natural gastric Juice of right proportion greets it and does Its work perfectly. After a time these little tablets restore Na ture, build up the gastric juice and there is no longer dyspepsia. Every druggist carries them in stock, price 50c; every druggist and 40. 000 physicians will attest their word to the merit of these tablets.
