Where most American people fall
down is in not recognizing their gov
ernment in city county state and
nation as part of their business and of
their own concern Most of us are
content to regard it as a matter set
aside belonging to and responsible
from the men who happen to be in
authority by our vote or by the vote
of other men over our protest And
that is not true Take the case of
e clty government not specifically
here in Palestine but in any town
and what does the average taxpaying
citizen know about the government
about what is actually needed or
what is actually being done Prec
ious little It comes election time
the average man goes to the polls and
votes for some man he happens to
like and in nine cases out of ten the
voter never stops to figure as a busi
ness proposition whether his choice
is a capable man for the place or
not but votes for him because he
happens to be friendly to him or un
friendly to his opponent This is
true to a large extent and then is it
any wonder that often the govern
ment is not conducted with business
decision and system The govern
ment Is a great business undertaking
just as running your store factory or
shop only vastly more important be
cause it effects more people and
every man who lives under the gov
ernment is a stockholder and has a
stockholders rights and responsibili
ties The viewpoint as to government
is so warped that in some cases the
servant of the people actually gets of
fended if his masters the public
offer him suggestions or criticises
his acts However wise an official
head is he cannot at all times think
the clearest way but is entitled to
and should have the support and loy

country children may plow their way
to school in warm rubber boots with
warm mittens on their hands it is
chiefly responsible for the discouraged
wistfulness of the mother faces that
haunt our clothing stores at Christ
mas time in fact it dominates the
pocketbook Richard Washburn Child
in Everybodys Magazine
This is the introduction to one of
the most illuminating articles that has
appeared on the tariff in a long time
at least among such articles as have
been designed to instruct the average
reader or consumer on the iniquities
of the tariff system
The woolen schedule is boldly de
clared by Mr Child to be the work of
one man the head of the woolen trust
whose potential agents were those
leaders in congress who determined
just what the tariff should be It
was designed by this man to give the
power of extortion to all the manufac
turers in the trust and to discrimi
nate not only against the consumer
but also against the trusts chief com
petitors the cajded wool manufactur
ers The latter can no longer make
cheap clothing out of cheap material
even if they desire to do so for the
reason that schedule K is so framed
as to put exorbitant duties on the raw
materials so used and which must be
impoited in large quantities to meet
the demand
And these things have been accom
plished by bold and defiant provisions
carried out by the willing agents of
the tiust in congress and by trickeiy
jugglery and deception intended to
deceive the country and even such
members of congress as are not ex
perts in tariffmaking In a policy
that reeks with injustice the duty is
the same on cloth or clothing that
contains a small percentage of wool
as on cloth or clothing that is all
wool By the same arrangement fur
niture that bears a bit of wool in its
upholstering fabric rubber boots that
have a little wool in their lining cot
ton coats that have woolen collars
all bear the duty of all wool
The extoition made possible and
exercised under the powers given to
the woolen trust by this schedule is
ail indefensible burden on every fam
ily or Individual of small or moderate
means It affects the cost of all
kinds of wearing apparel of bedding
Also all kinds of shoemak

Sarah Bernhardt Who Is tcft Ap
pear In Vaudeville
It was announced recently that aft

considered the worlds leading actress
would appear in vaudeville In London
next fall Mine Bernhardt was iborn

of floor covering It has a vital re
lation to the health the very life of
the people
And this imposition is all the more
criminal for the reason that a vast
proportion of the clothing or material
made in whole or in part of wool
must be imported because even with
this enormous protection to the wool
growers which of course is largely
absorbed by the tiust the sheep in
dustry has not developed to a suffi
cient extent to supply the domestic
demand Mr Child declares that all
the wool grown in this country if
represented in clothing would servs
only to furnish each person with a
very short pair of knickerbockers
And was this schedule the work of
the present congress the product of
the extra session Not at all It is
the old Dingley schedule Its iniqui
ties have been known for years The
crime of the present congress was not
in making this schedule but in not
correcting its atrocious injustices
But the woolen trust is the master of
congress as at present organized The
trust agreed several months before
the tariff session that it would jit
ask for higher duties but that Jt
would insist on the old scheduleUfct
knew what it was doing it knew It
men it knew their power its deci
sion prevailed
And the people pay this trust a
tribute as cruel and shameless in the
exaction as ever was imposed by an
cient monarchs and by many too
many accepted as meekly as was the
thraldom of the hereditary serfs of
old Kansas City Star

Palestine owns a big street roller
but it has not worked any for a very
long time It looks capable of helping
to do some good work on the streets
The man who failed or refused to
pay his poll tax is already repentant
but in this case repentance will avail
him nothing The candidates will
have none of him and his conversa
tion is simply sounding brass
Up to the present count It looks
very much as though Col Rankin had
put it up to Col Colquitt to prove his
adoration of Senator Bailey If Col
Colquitt cannot piovo his case it is
going to be a case of hard luck
Watch the fight

We hear a great deal these days on
the subject of what is music There
are different viewpoints to be sure
There is the technical expertness that
only artists can understand and appre
ciate and that a singer can range
from one extreme note to the other is
considered a marvel by such appre
ciative ones But to most of us music
means that ability with harmony that
can draw from us a kindred sentiment
making us laugh or cry with the
spirit of the music And of this kind
of musicians there are exceedingly
few So few that some people never

three or four musicians in all of our
Many people coming to this section
from the thickly populated sections of
the country where every foot of land
is of value are at a loss to under
stand why so much of the land here
is out of cultivation and in many in
stances a wholly wrong conclusion is
reached People brought up to appre
ciate the value of land often conclude
that this land is of no value or else
It would not be idle The fault is not
in the lands but due to the fact that
we have not the population to take
up and cultivate these lands The
government survey in this county
shows this land to be of a very high
grade and when the people come to
cultivate it it will yield abundantly
And that is what East Texas wants to
bring about the getting together of
the people and this land
