IULL TO REMOVE FREE CANAL TOLLS.
The first serious friction between President Wilson and Congress is
just appearing. President Wilson is urging Congress to repeal the provision
which provides that our domestic or coast wise trade may pass through the
Panama canal free of tolls. The president has concluded that these free
tolls would he tt violation of the treaty we have with (ireat Hritian and ho
therefore urges Congress to repeal the act. Congress is very hitterly opposed
to complying with this request and the indications are that very likely it
light between the president and Congress may be precipitated.

One perfectly simple principle underlies the canal tolls problem which
is now causing partisan Democratic and Republican newspapers to fly
at each other's throats.
If the American shipping interests are given a special advantage over
competing companies, tis would be the result of the abolishment of tolls for
American coastwise vessels, would the shipping interests so favored give
the public as tt whole the benefit of cheaper rates, or would they put the
extra profits in their own pockets?
j Pecent American history supplies the answer.
I I W hen the "infant industries" in America were given special protection
by the I lilted Mates ( oivelli Inelit , III order that tlrey might compete With
the older industries of l'.urope, they not only kept all their arbitrarily
created profits for themselves, but they built up monopolies which have
put to the utmost tests the power of the ( iovcrniiictit itself.
We believe the American people have had enough of the paternal prin
ciple in government. It has had the etTect of making a lot of iih:r.it.' fill and
unruly children in the world of commerce.
The public as a whole would deceive no belli Ills from the plan to give

The light between Frank W. McAllister of Pans ami l.eorge it. .ioorc

the friends of former State Senator McAllister.
Fearing an imbroglio similar to the postniaslcrsnip eoniroM-rsj in
Louis, friends of Moore and McAllister are hoping to effect a compromise.
Senator Reel will support Moore for any other appointment in St.
Louis, if he will withdraw from the attorneyship fight. Seantor Stono will
be equally philanthropic if the Monroe county aspirant will accede to ap
pointment of ' Pike" Moore. .
The marshalships in the Kastern and Western districts also are causing
the senators much perturbation. Senator Reed lias promised the demo

money must e be expended throughout the State and
its sub-dividion under the joing superviosioii of the Highway Department
of Missouri, and the Secretary of Agriculture of the 1'iiilci! States, a Cabi
net officer. ICvery dollar expended will give a dollar's worth of improvement
mill betterment to the roads, and the government, under the law, has a nioru
rigid supervision over the expenditure of every cent.
Certain interests which have ever lived from the Federal revenues of
this country, and in which they have grown to believe they have a proprie
tary interest, are the only real enemies to this measure, a measure which
will benefit every man, woman and child in the American Republic.
Any man, I care not who he may be, opposing this act, is unknowingly
opposing the best interest of our eommonwealt h, and is unwittingly against
the betterment of our public roads. It is a source of great pleasure to
know that practically ninety per cent of the press is for the bill. The very
few opposing the same disclose, by their writings, they are grossly ignorant
of and unacquainted with the provisions of the Act as it passed the Lower
House of Congress. They seem to know little or nothing about the complete
ness of the measure in its every detail, and that each State can use its part
of the Federal moneys in improving the country post roads, or in construct
ing high-grade post roads, in the building of which the Government pays
one-half the cost of constui tion, and the State the other half, and if the
State had not the funds, then any county, district, community or tho citi
zens thereof may pay the said half, or the State may use part of its money
for one of these purposes and part for the other. In other words, Jackson
