OWN Β Y City Editor Residence Phone, Hell No. 289.) The state-widers seem to be still at sea over a candidate. Taft is said to have a great désira Ιο break the solid south In thi- line of work he is being ably assisted by certain so-called democrats. The man who honestly favors only a tariff for revenue will not vote for protective duties on any article, whethe! it be raw material or finish ed product. Will Judges Brooks and Poindex ter tell us what they think about Joe Bailey now " Do they still regard him as the grandest man on the Ameri can continent? Ttie attempt to build up a party of protection in Texas under the guise of taking cure of the producer of raw material will not work. You can't fool all the people all the time. No man in Texas, who is a candi date for public office, will dare get on the stump and denounce the plat form of his party. This is a right which seems to be reserved exclusive ly to Senator Bailey, the man who is bigger than his party, and who seems able to take an> position he pleases without forfeiting the sup port of his followers. Great is Bailey. Governor Harmon of Ohio, in his speech at Dallas, says you must stand by the platform. So says Sen ator Culberson and Congressmen Henry and Hardy and every other official who has spoken except Sen ator Bailey. He denounces not only the national democratic platform but the Fort Worth platform of 1908, upon which he was elected a delegate to Denver and which platform «as made by his own close political friends And these same friends, who made that platform and put liini on it, are now defending him for de nouncing it. In Texas if is not so rntn h a ques tion οf placing raw materials on the free list The absorbing and para mount issue is whether a I'nited States senator lias a right to refuse to obey the will of his party as ex pressed in its platform, and morn particularly, as a delegate to the na tional convention, to disregard the expressed will and Instructions of those who gave him his commission uch acts are to be ay with all demo , and let each in to be a democrat as a delegate If s jjproved, then aw orga nizat ion claiming pies ΙΤΛΙΛ WORKS TO KI N I W ΓΟΚ ksts. I I Italy, which has suffered extreme ; ly in thp past from the ruin which follows tin· removal of protective ! forests Is now among the leading 1 nations working for the conserva tion of forest resources. Extensive operations in reafforestation have been going 011 for forty years, and the Italian secretary of agriculture has just published his report on the progress made in that time. This report indicates that, the Ital ! ian government is keenly aware of jthe value of forests to the country, land that it is determined to bring jits deforested lands Into a forested (state as soon again as possible. To J attain this end. planting operations ι have been conducted 011 government ι land to such an extent that during I the last thirty years 122,000 acres I have been planted in twenty-five of 1 the provinces of Italy. Of this area, 169.000 acres, or approximately 108 i square miles, were planted in the jyear 1 n 117 alone, causing an outlay of nearly 2,000,000 dollars and giv ing employment to a large number of men. Reafforestation has been carried on so vigorously that there now re mains only about 36,000 acres of ι government land in need of planting. J In addition to conducting planting operations 011 a large scale, the Ital ian government has during the last forty years distributed over 130, 000,000 young trees and 237,600 pounds of seed, an amount sufficient to restock approximately 100,000 acres of laud, to the people in an effort to encourage planting and sowing by private persons. As the forest area of Italy amounts to only slightly more than 10,000,000 acres, this planting by the government and private persons amounts to approxi mately one-fortieth of Hie total for iest area of Italy. Further steps must J be taken by the government, bow ever, before its forest policy will prove the success of some of its Eu ropean neighbors. Forest fires still continue to be the cause of heavy damage. During ' the year 1907, 1,294 fires were re-j j ported with an estimated loss of j I $194. tOO.00. While this amount is1 I insignificant when compared with ] I the yearly loss from fires in the j I'ulted States, it is large relatively speaking a ! would be viewed al most as a calamity in the better man aged German forests. Of these fires, ninety-four were due to criminal de |Sign. 26 7 to culpable negligence, 132 i u> accident and the rest to unknow n I causes. File, how-ver. is not the only ene i my of tlic Italian woods. The small Vind owner ol'te i fells recklessly and j sometimes wi'h ood excuse because : of the heavy ta> ttlon of timber lands. jL··»·.·«<· tracks ν hit i) used to be cov ered by a tin k grovth of chestuut have, even during recent years, been stripped of every tree. Like iill other countries where for jestry is successfully practiced. Italy i must not only resort to planting the j ' ut-over areas, but must also perfect j a system of fire protection and enact j laws to relieve timberlands of exces jsive taxation. i'Avi\<; nu: γληιιί tax. j One of the matters which the peo | pie had in their mind when they ask | ed the government to arrange the tariff law so that it would bear a | little less oppresively upon them was j clothing. Clothing costs far more in! the I'nited States than it does in any | other part of the world, though this j country produces most of the world's cotton and a greater part of thei ! world's wool. In spite of the fact ■ Î that this nation sells abroad vast 1 j quantités of both of these principal j i materials for clothes-making and j I that with iis improved machinery! I and intelligent labor it ought to beat the world, the price of clothes is higher here than it is anywhere else [in the world; and the reason is that I the tariff schedules are so high as toi jtax all the people through every ar | dele of clothing they buy, almost en J tirely for the benefit of a few mill l owners who have done nothing to j earn this fat special privilege. ■ Congress did not lower the wool I schedules. It is asserted, in its de lfen.se. that it did not raise them, I (either though until the full extent of Itru sleight-of-hai. I work accomplish-j >d by Aldrich is laid bare, nobody can be sure of that. Congress did [not lower the cotton schedules, but ii did raise them and it raised most heavily those covering articles which most people buy bee,·.use most people can afford nothing better. These things were done by the tariff law which President Taft praises and for voting against which he has chastis ed the insurgents of the west. These abstract fac ts are made more interesting by a few figures. Clothing ha» already increased in price and still further increases are promised for next spring. The suit of clothe*. that you used to buy for $16 is now $20; and the additional $4 repreec-uts your tribute to tie wool trust and the mill-owners, though there was a large tribute in the old prir.· of $lti. The wholesale manufac turers have to pay more for cloth, linings, and trinimin·-· and so they declare they are compelled to raise prii es—-and what is worse, to cheap en the quality of the goods. The consumer has this tempting choice: He can pay $2". for the kind of suit that lie bought last fail for $20 or he can pay the old price of $2ti and gei for it the kind of suit that lie cou M have got lor $ I ti last spring. A pattern of goods that used to be sold to the manufacturers at $1.7i> per yard now costs him $2.10. It takes three and a half yards to make a suit so the added cost on this item alone is $ 1.-2. Adding in the addi tional cost of trimmings and linings it is estimated that the increase in the making a suit out of that cloth is $4.2 2. A dealer quoted by the Cincinnati lOnquirer says: "The retail store keeper who has a run on suits that be pays SI â for and sells at about $22 if he wants to hold his $22 price will have to take an inferior quality of suit. He will get a grade that sold for about $12 previously and which he used to sell in his store at $18." Another dealer says that "it is ι simply a hold-up behind the tariff fence." This man bought a lot of cloth for $2 a yard that sells the same goods from the saine mills— for s7i cents a yard In England. The suits made of it are sold lo the re tailers for $ Hi .".q and to the wearer for $2.· If the cloth could lie bought it the English price, xr> cents, the retailer would net the suit, for $12 md the w carer at $ I And so it goes throughout the lists thanks to the tariff law which lie piesideiit of the l ulled States is (raising in tin name of "republican solidarity." What does the wearer of •lothes, thus robbed, care about •pariy solidarity?" Dtiluth (Minn) lerald. Ilonor Manila Itay Hero. Annapolis Md..
