The Doings of the American t
Protective Tariff League. n
-- f
Ne. eoxtract from a Wash- i
ingtoen correspondence the t
following, which throws t
much light upon the doings t
of the American Protective
Tariff League: t
"Trhere is great rejoicing in c
the office of the American p
Protective Tariff League, in i
New York. It has compfelled t
President Roosevelt to change t
front on the quiaestion of tariff n
revision and it is now boast- c
hig of its achievement. It is s
the most powerful instrument
in this country today for thme1
xiloimb hug of public Sentiment

facturers which bears thatl

nish, silks, etc., in the entire

This.i minimnum fund of
$100,000 is swelled by addi
tional contributions as the
pccasion demands. The ob
ject of the American Protec
tive Tariff League is to create
senltililenlt in this country
favorable to the maintenance
of the protective tariff and to
prevent the abatement of ex
istinmg tariff rates. It is the
1Ier-sonifi(cation of tihe "stand
pat*" idlea. It opposes the
prossinlg (of a "t," the dotting
of an "i," or the changing ot
a itunctuation mark ini the
existinug tariff law. The
league effects its purposes
an(1 aceom plishes its object
of molding public sentinment
by working upon t'me readers
4f the. country through a
masterful system of news
paper syndicates. It boasts
that the combined circulation
per- week of the newspapers
using the editorials and other
matter sent out by the league
was $,000,000. Approximate
ly .that represents 24,000,000
readers per week. All this
matter is sent out in stereo
typled form and free to the
paperB desiring to use it.
Hesidles this tlyze league pub
lishmes a weekly paper called

that tlcy are being bled and A
robbed by this set of men and H
special interests putting up w

lieve that protection is help- ai
jug them and the country? t
What more do they want of
The democratic party panders tl
to no special interests whose T
profits are made by robbing al
the people and therefore it w
has no propaganda and no c(
money to establish one by A
which its ideas of good gov- st
erument can be constantly of
pounded into the people. If b
the democratic party could tl
have had even 1,000 papers b
for the past ten years expos- A
ing the fallacies of high pro- I
tection, the farmers of the 1:
country who suffer most from C
this one-sided game, would F
today be almost unanimous ti
in their opposition to protec- d
tion. We have no fountain ti
of wealth filched from the ii
pockets of the people from g
which to draw and therefore c
the people do not get the fi
truth. They get only the o
honied sophistries from an c
organized band of public l
plunderers and go on "letting t
well enough alone" until the t
hand is bursting with boodle. b
When the members are gorg- I
ed and get to quarreling c
among themselves as they are t
now doing then the people s
will begin to get a glimpse of C
the truth. It remains to be r
seen how much longer the t
- people will stand for this sort I
I of thing and be beguiled by c
this American Protective t
r Tariff League. It got them 1
to pass the McKinley and the c
IDingley bills with which to i
abstract money from their I
i pockets, * * * * * *
and now it has scared the I
States by threatening to e- 1

the way of high protection. I

c. Some of the rottenness of
e the republican administration
Il of thme Post Office Department
e is at last conming to light.
g Jhe investigation has only
4t just begun, but it has gone
e far enough to let us see that
e this will be thme biggest scan
s dal ever unearthed in any
~t department of the national
It government until the demo
-s crats get in control and take
a a look at the books in the
s- War and Navy departments,
:s and thme things that were
m (lone there durinig the war
-s with Spain in connection
,r with the purchase of supplies.

8- chase of vessels for colliers

B- the Postmaster General, he
d i not expect to find any-.
7 thing worse than a few lirre
egularities, and which could
y be easily remedied, but he
ecomes back here from a pleas
t ure trip and finds an enor
it mous scandal being turned
ii up to the gaze of the public,
-and he is badly scared. lHe
etalks yery 1)1a vely about con
nm tinning the investigation and

mn to shut it olt right now. If

t- This game of graft and pecu
,elationi has been going on for
e sey~cral years. When Senator
e-Haina inauigurated the most
2.stuipendtous campaign of bri
n hery and corr-uptiomi in 1896
ever before attempted, one of th
his most active lieutenants lii
was Perry Heath. He was
rewarded for his peculiar ser- th
vices by being appointed First ne
Assistant Postmaster General. cii
He, in turn, selected others tih
who had beeni active in the
debauch of the voters,
amongst whom were Neely ca
and Rathbone, who were sent JI
to Cuba and were convicted l:
of robbing the government
there of thousands of dollars.
The same game was inaugur
ated here, only in different di
ways, and so that it could be d.
covered up for a longer time. 1is
All sorts of schemes were is
started for making money out
of the government jobs held
by certain people. Two of
these people have already lc
been forced to resign, viz: h
Assistant Attorney General si
Tyner, wilo had charge of the h
law department of the Post ti
Office Department, and Mr.
Beavers, superintendent of at
the salary and allowances
division. It was discovered e<
that Tyner had been render- oi
ing decisions that gave the li
get-rich-quick swindling con w
cerns of the country the belle. oj
fit of the use of the mails in it
order to rob the people of the
country. We do not yet
know all that Beavers has
been doing, but we do know si
that he got out as soon as the 0:
fire was started in his rear. 11
It is believed that one of the 0
charges against him will be n
a that lie was at the head of a I
a syndicate that was selling in- q
f creases in salaries. When a lI
man designated as entitled g
to an increase in his salary
t was sent in to Beavers it is q
V charged that he was notified n
e that lie must plank down not b
a less than $25 or the increase V
e did not go. We all know
o that Beavers lately built a
r residence in the City of
* Brooklyn that cost not less 4
e than $35,000, and on a salary a

d or sometimes forced on post
n masters all over the country,
. and all of it was made by one

't ines have been distributed
.e lavishly, and all of them of
the same make. The old
fashioned good iron mail

The Avoyles Blade says:
"It begins to be realized'
that the control of the Missis
sippi river and the protection
of the great valley from over
flow is no longer a Louisiana
or a Western question but a
national one. Leading journ
als of the north which have
heretofore been silent on this
question are now advocating
large appropriations from the
government for this purpose.
They have dropped sectional
lines and are making of this
question a bigger, larger and
more important one, and this
being the case congress will
probably be more liberal in
the future than it has been
in the past."

a question is a national one,
