Democrats and War Tax.
Rock Island Union: Representative
Claude Kitchen of North Carolina is
floor leader for the democrats in con
gress. When he was asked how the
administration proposed to pay for the
increase in the army and navy when
the government deflclt 1b growing
every day, he promptly replied:
"Let the rich pay for it."
"The rich are the folks who are
clamoring for war and for prepared
ness. Suppose they foot the bills."
So Mr. Kitchin is quoted as saying.
It Is a question of money with the
present administration. The demo
crats must have it. Their plans of
government eliminate the protective
tariff ldeap wbich in time if permitted
to go on, will reduce the working
people of this country to the level in
wages with European countries. The
elimination of the tariff results in the
elimination of revenues for the main
tenance of the government and the
war stamp tax was placed- upon—not
the rich but everybody. The effect of
this has been far-reaching and is re
acting. Something must be dope to off

Clyde Semones, the demon crack of

no runs, and striking out twenty-two

The WeBt Keokuk park is in for.
some repairs shortly. A grandstand

when the work is finished, Keokuk

auditorium which will be a great im
provement. They have Just closed
their winter lecture course, whereby
a series of five splendid numbers
were brought to our town. They also
promote a local Chautauqua which
promises to be even better this year
than heretofore. They have a snug
library which has been replenished
recently by books, the gift of a
friend, and this fact alone makes the
enlargement of their building neces
sary. The club is in a thriving con
dition and everything points toward
another successful year.
