Houses of Congress cot together up
on a tariff bill which satisfied the Resident and it is a law. The Grand Old Party, rent and torn by dissen sions over rates ot duty, will go forth to face the American people and its various Congressmen will seek re jection by various and devious argu ments. Those in thfe rural districts ?will "point with pride" to the re dactions made and explain how the consumer will profit thereby, a strange argument for a Republican Congressman, who, for forty years, has vociferously and vehemently ar gued that the higher the protection the lower the price and that the for eigner and not the purchaser paid the tariff tax. Those in the manufacturing dis tricts will orate upon the way they struggled to save the ancient principle protection and prevent the wicked of insurgents and destructive Demo crats from tearing down their com mercial bulwark and sending all American manufacturers and indus tries to the bow-wows. To fool the people of both sections and preserve it* power is a task that no other par ty could have ever performed and if the G. O. P. can succeed its position will be novel and unique. As a matter of fact when all has been said and done, as a tariff meas ure the Payne-AIdrich bill, as finally agreed upon, is a piece of bunco leg islation. It benefits practically no ?body. The Dingley schedules have been so juggled that few effective changes were made. Where reduc tions occur it is in prohibitive rates. The consumer will not be benefitted, the producer will not be hurt and the Government will get no additionnl revenue. Save and except that the Leather Trust's demand for free hides was acceded to there is little to it. That company alone will receive a direct benefit of $20,000 per day from tku, but inasmuch as the much reduction on leather and sttoM fc only apparent and not real, the public will have to wait for its share of the blessings and profits up on even this change. On the whole the Government, as badly as it needs it, gets- almighty little more revenue and a tax must be imposed upon the incomes of all corporations, big and little, to make up the deficiency. The incorpora ted concern must pay a tax to the ; federal government, in addition to j its charter tax to the state, while its individual competitor across the street' ifill go free. Meantime prices rise and soar and the fanner .ind labor ing man goes on pouring his earnings into the pockets of the protected class. Yet, we will be told in all serious ness that the Republican campaign pledge has been kept. SAME HERE If many subscribers would stop to consider for a moment that the man agement of the i>aper has most of its bills to settle every thirty or sixty days, we believe they would be a little more prompt in settling sub scriptions. Half the time it is just negligence or procrastination that leads a subscriber to put off sending money enough to pay for the paper. The average subscriber docs not in tend to wilfully put off paying when he is reminded of the amount due, but in many cases contents himself with a promise that he will give the matter his attention the following day. When the following day comes he has probably forgotten the whole thing and does not recall it again for many months. We appreciate the fact as well that it may happen that a man may really i not have the money and in that case he is perhaps excusable. There are other instances where mistakes arc made so there must be where there are so many accounts, in which case the management is always ready and willing to rectify any error it may have fallen into. Once again we appeal to those of1 our subscribers who are able and who are in arrears to be as prompt as possible so that we may meet our obligations as promptly as any other business concern.

DEMOCRATS UNITED AT LEAST THAT'S WHAT CHAMP CLARK SAYS.' ISAAC YATES, DOOMED TO DIE, TAKES ON WEIGHT ON PRISON GROB. Moundsville, W. Va., Augusts.? With a death sentence hanging over you, don't you think that you'd worry yourself into a semblance of a living skeleton? Perhaps. That there is a doubt about it, the exam ple ot Isaac Yates, who is confined in the state penitentiary, condemned to die nest month may be cited. Upon his arrival at the state peniten tiary, Yates weighed 117 pounds. Today he tips the scales at exactly 171 pounds. The fact that he is soon to give up his life for a crime he has committed does not seem to have any effect on either the physical or men tal condition of the man. He is always apparently happy and contented and seems to worry not at all over the feet that he is to be hanged. The fact that a man may gain fifty-four pounds in about three months, while living in the shadow of the gallows is almost an unprecedented occurrence. The rea son for Yates" calmness and apparent happiness lies in the fact that he is expecting a reprieve from the govern or of the state, but even at that, how many men out of a hundred would not be worn to a mere shadow from the suspense and worry incident to' the trial and conviction through which this man has passed? That Yates has either got supreme control over his worrying apparatus or else his mentality is such that he is incapable of worrying, would natur ally be the general conclusion of the majority of people, for even if a. lighter sentence than that of death were certain instead of a possibility there are very few men who could gain weight while waiting for death on the gallows. Washington, D. C., August 7.? In reply to what he terms 'the mis representations of democrats in the papers," Champ Clark, leader of the minority in the house of representa tives today gave out a statement re garding the course of the democratic members of the house in connection with the consideration of the Payne tariff bill. Clark is angry because some pipers of his own party have stilted that the democrats were not united, and that had they stuck to gether they could have defeated tin conference report. He says the democrats in congress are more unit ed than ever before. He claims that the tariff bill is not a revision downward and that the average rates are 2 per cent higher. The Steel Trust is pleased with the new tariff bill. The other trusts have not been heard from, but there is reason to believe they are equally gratified. They wrote it all right.
