REVIEWING THE FLEET.
EVIDENTLY HE HAD ENOUGH in Hi 3 Ifl Riff ei-4 V UNITED FOR VICTORY DEMOCRATIC PARTY 18 ABOUT TO RETURN TO POWER. On a Platform ,of Tariff Reform and Prqsrcwlve Government j Success-; Jul Appeal to the Voters : Will Be Assured. Four questions were submitted to leading Democrats of the country by the World: ? J'S 1 "What, are the prospects of the sue cess -of your party candidate -for the presidency if existing conditions con tinue as at present? "Who in' your estimation should be the candidate of the national conven tion of your party in order to enlist the support of the majority of voters In your stte? "What In your Judgment should be the Issues upon 'which your party should make Its appeal to the voters of your state for their support? "Do you believe that a 'Conserva tive' or a 'Progressive' policy would best contribute to the success of your party?" The answers to these questions show an astonishing ! unanimity of sentfment. -: ' So far as issues are concerned the Democratic party is united as it has not been united since 1892. It is for tariff reform and progressive gov eminent. 1 So far as candidates are concerned, the sentiment of the party Is divided only on the question of availability, with Woodrow Wilson and Judson Harmon decidedly in the lead. The blunder of 1904 Is not to be repeated, when Wall street Democrats were al . lowed to go-to the front long, enough to discredit the ticket, although Wall street itself was secretly financing the Roosevelt campaign. : Whether the majority sentiment swings toward Wilson or Harmon or Underwood Is a minor question at this time. The Important fact Is that the country again has a "united, ' progres sive militant Democratic party eapa- ble of restoring the balance of govern ment- New York World. ; Mr. Taft's Confession. Explanation and apologies are feeble planks for a platform on which a president must stand for re-election, and Mr. Taft's confession shows that he realizes his mistakes. This Is creditable to the man, but does not Justify the president. Why. should the people re-elect to thrf greater office of president a man who frankly avows his serious blun ders, but pleads that they were due tto Ignorance and lack of thoughtful deliberation? Would Mr. Taft ever have tried to amend or even have discovered his errors If popular con demnation had not brought him to a realization of their Importance and of his own responsibility? St. Louis Post-Dispatch. v ;, , , , Point Not to Be Overlooked. While the American Anti-Trust leagued Is hiring halls to denounce men In official station who "Surren dered to Steel" It should not overlook Theodore Roosevelt Not that any- bedy la likely to forget It, but merely that the biggest surrenderor of them all deserves the main load of blame whenever the subject is discussed. If the American Anti-Trust league really wishes to do the country a service It should pound away everlastingly ' at the question: "How much, if any thing, did steel contribute to Corne lius JlHss for Roosevelt's campaign fund?" ? Roosevelt's Plan Unwise. Any tyro will perceive .that , Mr. Roosevelt proposes nothing new. . His plan is a most ambitious scheme of government control of practically all Important business. The mere begin nings of such control would mean a treai-e'ndous bureau exercising tre mendous powers, and If it were adopt ed we should have a stupendous ad ministrative agency In Washington which would make all others pale into compa rative Insignificance.

The .first tariff act under, the Con stitution became a law July 4, 1789. It was the only such act that congress ever expressly declared to be intend ed in;a,ny degreevfor, protection., 4i; V This act laid specific duties on 38 enumerated articles, and ad valorem duties op 31 enumerated articles. Mt pt 19 others on the free list. .On all other articles 1J laid, a level five, per cent.'dutirj: jf , !. '.'" , The highest a, valorem, rafe. was oacarriages-l(! per cent. The prin cipal articles on which specific duties were laid, were spirits, wines and malt liquors, tea, offefi tobacco,, iron' and steel. Some of these specific duties were for, protection, and some were for revenue otiljr. Some of them were equivalent to more than 15 per cent, and some were not. - The duties of both kinds in fact pro duced revenue equal to 8 per cent, of the value of all Imports. The ex cess of this over the level five per cent, rate that is 8V4 per cent. was about the measure of average protec tion. Average protection today, after nearly a century and a quarter of progress in industrial efficiency af? the accumulation of vast capital in the protected industries, is nearly eight times as great . Does any Intelligent man who has given serious attention to the subject believe our industries need eight times, or twice, or even as much pro tection as they did 122 years ago. when they were Indeed in their in fancy? If so, what does he think they will need after another century and quarter of dry nursing? People Are Not 80 Stupid. That ancient and many times de feated subsidy proposition makes ap pearance in new form. Among the many suggestions for in suring a large amount of business for the Panama canal comes the recom mendation of Mr. Stlmpson, secretary of war, that rebates be allowed on the tolls charged for American vessels. In other words, Mr. Stlmpson would have subsidies distributed in, the shape of rebates Instead of in the way of direct payments from the national treasury. He would have the people make a present of cash to the favored shippers and shipowners in advance instead of after possible service. The people are not so stupid that they will not be able to see through this ingenious proposition for -whipping the devil round the stump. ! They are not prepared to put out their good money for the benefit of any class of men. 1 True Business Prosperity. Why, asks Congressman Redfleld, in view of the triumphs of American man ufacturers abroad, should their fellow- countrymen be prohibited from buying goods beyond tfce seas? The question cuts to the very bottom of the Chinese Wall theory of business prosperity. Men grow rich, as a matter of fact, by buying and selling among each oth er, not by being prohibited from dolni so. - v , Getting Wise. fThe people yearn for facts," said Victor Murdock in Washington. Sure ly. -But the congressional leaders didn't realize that when they passed the tariff act of 1909. So they wera shocked when they failed to get away with Jt aa they always had done b fore. t Vice and Wages. " ' Y All that Raymond Robins says about the steel trust s beggarly wages is true, It is a highly protected indus try which makes war upon union la bor, most of the time successfully. But Mr. Robins cannot prove that' vice Is due to low wages: There is more, vice in this country where money is plenty than where it is scarce. If the Idle rich and their dependents were' as decent - morally aa the overworsea ana unaerpaia poor there would not be mtrch ground for complaint . f r,-.... Already Burdened Father ; Led to Make Caustl; Comment on . Vital Question. Arnold Bennett, the novelist, has a joke about race suicide In his new play, "The Honeymoon." His leading lady says, apropos of the birth rate; "What, is the poor, dear thing still declining?" Mr. Bennett, apropos of his joke, was discussing race suicide the other day in New York. ''A woman," he said, "looked up from her evening paper and re marked; ; ' . . v " " 'It is stated here that a babe is bora every time the chronometer ticks off second.' "Her husband, as he wiped the ever moist mouths of the tiny twins, set one on each of his knees, muttered almost fiercely: " 'Bad luck, then, to the Roosevelt ian . duffer who invented chronometers!" BURNING ITCH WAS CURED "I deem it my duty to tell about a cure that the Cutlcura Soap and Oint ment have made on myself. My trou ble began In splotches -breaking out right in the edge of my hair on the forehead, and spread Over the front part of the top of my head from ear to car, and over my ears which caused a most fearful burning itch, or eczema. "For threo years I had this terrible breaking out on my forehead and scalp. I tried our family doctor and he failed to cure it Then I tried the Cutlcura Soap and Ointment and used them itor two months with the result of a "complete cure. Cutlcura Soap and Ointment should have the credit due, and I have advised ' a lot of peo ple to use them-" ' (Signed) C D. Tharrington, Creek, N. C. Jan. 26, 1911. Itching Scalp Hair Fell Out 'Twill say that I have been suffer ing with an., itching on, my scalp for the,, past few years. My hair fell out in spots all oxer my head. . My scalp started to trouble-me with, sores, then the sores healed up, and crusts formed on the top. Then the hair fell out and left me three bald spots the shape of a half dollar. I went to more than one doctor, but could not get any relief, so I started to nae the Cuticura Remedies. I tried one bar of Cuticura Soap and some Cuticura 'Ointment, and felt relieved right away. Now the bald spots have disappeared, and my hair has grown, thanks to the .Cuti cura Soap and Ointment I highly recommend the Cutlcura Remedies to all that are suffering with scalp trou Die."

Beware of Cheap Bills. An examination or paper currency oy Warren H. Hlldltch of Yale showed an average of one hundred and forty- two thousand bacteria to the bill. Twenty-one bills were examined, and while some were relatively clean, car rying only a trifle of fourteen thou sand living things, others swarmed to the figure of five hundred and eighty six thousand. And, strange to say, the bacteria did not seem to swarm to the $1,000 bills in preference to the $1 bills. ' This shows that it is far healthier to cany- $1,000 bills about than it is to tote $1 bills. , Here is a valuable financial hint w - Turkish Medicines. Old-fashioned physicians have plenty of reliable remedies for. cholera. An agate in the pocket and a hyacinth on the neck are much esteemed, but the bone of a dead child , carried in the pocket is nearly as efficacious. - Chol era, we learn, is caused by the moon. Therefore drink decoctions of laurel while Mars or Mercury is in the as cendant, since these placets are un friendly to the moon.

Y "I always knew old man Jones was pretty tight," said one farmer, "and I know that butter is skerce and high, but I didn't know he cut bread with a greasy knife." He Was the Man. v A young New Haven man, returning home from a health trip-to Colorado, told his father about buying a silver mine for $3,000. , "I knew they'd rope you In!" exclaimed the old man. "So you were ass enough to buy a humbug Mine." "Yes, but I didn't lose any thing. I formed a company, and sold half the stock to a Connecticut man for $7,000." "Y-you did." gasped the old man as he turned white. "I'll bet I'm the one who bought it" "I know you are," coolly observed the young man as he crossed his legs and tried to appear very much at home, . i Danger.
