The Tnrlft I11I1
Tha Outlook
1 It is certain that the immediate effect
of such a bill will be to disturb some es
tahllshed Industries The mere fact that
It Is under consideration will do so Busi
ness men hae a remarkable power of ad
Justing their business to the conditions of
trade whitever they be but any change
In condition requires a new adjustment
A change in tariff means a change in
prices and a change in prices means a
change In wages and In profits It Is Im
possible that this bill or any bill mate
rially modifying the tariff can become a
law without modifying tile rroflts of some
manufLctuicrs and the wages of some
woiklngmen The pussage of this bill
will be tho cause ot some reductions in
wages and the occasion of other reduc
tions Ihe fairminded student will ask
himself not whether some present indus
tries will be made less prolllable and somit
will be even closed altogether for that
Is ceitaln to be the case but whether
theic are advantages that compensate the
loss In other words he can not strike
a balance without looking at both the
debtor and tlie creditor bide of the ac
count And partisanship must not pre
vent him from recognising that there Is
a debtui side to the account that is that
tiiere will bo a loss
Only an expert can form a competent
Judgrrent as to the percentages on special
ai tides Detailed discussions as to sched
ules are of very little value to the aver
age reader Wo counsel him not to get
entangled nnd perplexed In such discus
sions Hut he may form a Jui1 Judgment
on one or two fundamental principles
such as whether the bill Is sectional that
is whether it gives advantages lo one
section over another or whether It is a
elajtH bill that Is whether It givts advan
tages 10 one class over another
t Hut the real and fundamental ques
tion goes deeper than this That question
is In brief what Is the function of taxa
tion and behind and below that what
Is the function of government Protection
claims that it is a legitimate function of
taxation to promote industries and insists
tint taxation can be so framed that a
tax leviM to aid one Industry may be
mode really to aid all Industries Itevenue
reformers claim that tlie only function of
taxation Is to raise a revenue for the ne
cessities of government economically ad
ministered that It Is to be so levied as lo
Inflict the least possible pecuniar Injurv
on the lndistrl s of the community but
that one Industry can not b promoted
by speilnl legislation without an Injurv
to other Industries and that no method
of tariff Is practical and Just except
one based on a few broad principles such
as light tirlff or none at all on raw ma
terials and on food products higher taxes
on luxuries than on necessaries and taxes
assessed according to the value of ar
Apparently the Wilson bill Is a sincere
and intelligent effort 10 frame a bill In
accordance with these principles and as
Ihe democratic pnrty Is committed to
these principles and the present house
was elected upon a platform professing
them it Is clearly tho duty of the present
house to pass such a bill Amendments
may be made to correct errors In detail
but amendments which violate or com
promise these essential prlntclples ought
not to b allowed In order to plicate local
Interests The country will then have
befure It the two schemes of tariff tho
protective and the revenue onlv in con
crete forms 111 the MeKlnley bill and the
Wilson bill and In thecnnftresslonal elec
tions of 1S0I an opportunity will be af
forded the peopln definitely deciding be
tween the two That flnnlly and definitely
decided Industry cm adjust Itself to the
decision Hut It can not adjust Itself to
Indecision pot to a mongrel tariff that is
neither for protection ittr for revenue

caused him to usu an ear trumpet Into
you could talk as you talk Into a

did not like you could let It alone and
turn to head cheese and sausage nnd
stewed backbono and they raised lurkeja
and chickens to roost In tlie trees which
under all circumstances Is the best and
heathlost wny to raise them in this nrcii
dla and they are going on In tho snmo
oldfashioned way to this day
At Mcllay they used to raise scupper
nong rrnpes nnd bunches ot Concords of
fabulous weight and make wine of the
most delicate anfcellcu In old Montgom

make on any land under Uio sun nnd
they have been making syrup from the

The andv land urountl Willis Is admira

addition Irish potatoes and sugar beets
produce fine crops In such lands
Today I wish io call the attention of the
people of Montgomery county anil all
South Texas slmlhuly situated to the
practical Introduction of another new
crop to tho sandy Uiiim prairies
The Introduction of two mammoth brew
eries at the city of Houston Is a direct ro
sult of absolutely pure artesian water at
a minimum cost when wo add to this
cheap brick cheap lumber cheap
fuel und cheap transportation In any and
every direction of distribution It Ib anlv
renaonablft to assume that theselirewerfts
will double their capacity every fi w scars
or that even many additional breweries
will be built and as the population of
South Texas is tncieasing wondeifully the
Inference Is that mall and hops will con
tinue to Is useI more hugely in the future
than In tne past Hops require an equable
sunny climate and u well drained open
countiy with u soli having lime In Its
oompo HJon Just such soil as will grow
potatoes nd peanut corn and tobacco
perfection Hops grow wild In Texas
and Xor that matter tobaoco grows wild
also It is thoreforo quite useless to fur
ther quostlon the adaptability of either
crop to successful cultivation The fuel
of the matter Is you can grow anything In
old Montgomery county worth growing
Hut referring more particularly to bona
the plant has a perennial root and a twin

every year but remains alive lielow the
aurfuoe wbtnce It springs up with re

bitter aromatic taste of hops Is well
known and He other vegetable bitters
they have a Ionic effect upon the system
and are used In medicine

nre planted early they will nuke a crop

have a twelvefeet stake nnd the female
vines an eightfeet stake of vv hlch obxht
ren Inches should go In the ground nnd
the balance eland up perfectly upright
nud the tops should be united with wire
osch way glvlnit six feet clear tinder
which ono may walk to rather the hops
at maturity In a prairie region the best
and cheapest stakes would be Inch nnd n
quarter squ e sticks sawed at the saw
mill eight tuet long and left rough The
portion near and In the ground should be
ooated with coul tar and Xor that matter
the entire stake The best wny to culti
vate the hops would be tu plant a crop of
Irish potatoes In the middles or a crop
of cabbage or tobacco or anv other crop
that Is worked with a pony plow or liBhd
plow and hoe
In this beautiful sunny cllmo the hops
will cure themselves on Ihe vines In the
same manner that tobacco will cure on
the stalk
After wo got tho Industry well started
vvo will further discuss tho propriety of
kiln drying or other manipulation that
may bo necessary for the perfection ot
the crop
The main thing Is to grow It nnd that
Is as easy and simple as growing nny

The fruits ot old Montgomery county
have n higher flavor In mv estimation
than thoso of the lower coast country
