aroused to the Importance of combat

local columns of the papers, especial
ly In the western states, are filled with
foiunionsonBe articles setting before
the people such facts ns appeal to rea

their zeal to accomplish good, perhaps
go ton fur in abuse of systems that take
money from their neighborhoods, and
by severe criticisms of patrons of out-of-town
concerns "overshoot the

much desired.
None will gainsay that the wage
earner has the Inherent right to spend
bis earnings wherever ho desires. If
he wishes to buy his clothes in some
distant city, he has thut privilege.
Sometimes he may have cause to do
so. His home merchants may not
carry In stock what he wishes to so
cure. Others may charge him what
he considers an exorbitant price.
Quite often ho may learn that he
makes a mistake by buying goods
without a careful examination of
them. When this is tho case and it
frequently is the purchaser becomes
a better putron of home Institutions
than ever before, lltil there are u
few thlngB that the average man and

that they send away means money
taken out of local circulation, and the
consequent Impoverishing of the com

are 2.000 people in the community.
Five dollurs a year from each one
sent star amounts to $10,000 a year,
and In ton years $100,000. Supposing
that a llflh or sixth of this represent

enough to establish a business enter

more than the total paid or needed

that is! Think thut this trade, given
to the home town, would Immediately
Increase Its business from a third to

adhered to strictly before your town

It would only require a very few

would send away for their eggs, their

that the merchant is compelled to do

they know the cupidity of tho masses,

a stock-selling scheme, a membership
plan with promise of selling goods at
wholesale prices, and the paying of
large dividends. A number of such
concerns have lately come Into exist

It Is a scheme simply with the object

large cities and are seeking the sup

Unfortunately the Statement That
the Tariff Yas Responsible for
Quieting Financial Flurry Is
Not Borne Out by Facts.
It Is Indeed a pleasure to know
from such un exulted authority as
:he American Kcononilst, tho organ
f tho tariff -pi otected trusls, that the
panic Is over, and It was the high
tariff which cured our financial Ills.
Hut In spite of this nssurancu of the
Economist there Is every day still
published news of this and that fac
tory shutting down, or discharging
half or more of their workmen, and of
wnges being reduced. Is the tariff
which protects tho trusts working at
crons purposes, or Is the Kcononilst
mistaken In its diagnosis of present
conditions? Even the New York pa
pers, which have evidently entered
into a league for the purpose of mini
mizing the panic, do not recm ablo
to swallow the good news that tho
punle Is over, or that the protective
tariff saved the day. "We know, of
course, that protection brought us all
our nntlnnnl blessings." says the
Evening I'ost, "and would, If not hin
dered now and then by satnnle free
traders, avert every public III; hut
we did not expect to see the truth set
forth so bluntly as It is by the Econo
mist. 'The tariff,' It says, 'had noth
ing whatever to do with bringing on
this financial flurry, but It bad a tre
mendous lot to do with quieting It.'
Wo can easily understand, therefore,
thnt 'fnlth in protection was never
more nllve,' since people have seen It
cause 'the worst money panic the
country hns known for 15 years' to
'disappear Inside of Ave days.' Our
only regret is that the hunkers and
trust company presidents and the sec
retary of the treasury should have
been In Ignorance of nil this, and
should have spent haggurd days and
nights over the questions of reserve
and gold Imports, when all the while
I hero was the tariff fairy godmother
making their anxiety needless and
their labors superfluous. Hut we fear
thnt the foolish men would still press
one question upon the Econoiuint :
nrnntlng that the tariff ended the
panic, how did it happen to slip n
cog and let the panic occur at ull?"
There be those that claim that the
tnrlfT has so protected the trusts nnd
monopolists that It has led them to
branch out too greatly after the enor
moiiB profits the tariff hns protected
them In charging, and this kind of
bolstered up prosperity has Just
broken down of Its own weight for
luck of enough fuel to feed on Wheth
er this view Is the correct ono, or
whether the organ of the trusts Is cor
rect In Its statement that the panic
Is over, and that "the tariff had noth
lug to do with bringing on this finan
cial flurry, but It lin.l n tremendous
lot to do with quieting It." will soon
be seen, and the truth will eventually
prevail. The last Republican plat
form declared that "a Republican
tariff has always been followed by
business prosperity," but then that
was so notoriously untrue that It
should bo taken with duo allowance
lis simple partlsnn boasting, and the
boast of the Economist may be like
unto It. Time will tell nnd not very
long will be required, either.
A Change Imperative.
The Republican leaders contend
that congress or the courts may Just
ly put upon tho conrtltutlon a con
struction which shall be conslderod as
the constitution itself, and aro un
willing that there should bo any
check to oppose their designs. If they
had their way, every construction put
upon the constitution by congress or
by corporation-owned Judges of the
Inferior federal courts would ho In
effect a new constitution. Thus our
supreme law would be tossed about
by every political breeze, until It
finally crystallized anew into a system
of tyranny based upon nrbltrary prac
tices dictated by corrupt corporations.
President Roosevelt, who Is tho lead
er of tho party favoring tho alteration
of the constitution by this foul meth
od, now has congress at his feet, and
has appointed 67 federal Judges, who
presumably adhere to his opinions. If
the people desire to preserve their
constitution, they must very soon
change the administration of the gov
ernment They must change It, In
deed, at the next election.
Mistakes of Roosevelt.
If President Roosevelt Is as care
less of his financial facts as he is of
the law on several matters he will
hardly go down Into history as a safe
man to follow. There Is no excuse for
president to make misstatements
about the laws or the financial affairs
of the United States, for be has an
army of legal and financial talent to
look up the law and the facts, and
when he said there was "no legal war
rant" for placing on the coins of the
United States the motto "In God we
trust," be bad evidently never ex
amined "the laws of the United States
relating to coinage," wherein section
five, chapter C expressly provides for
the use of the motto.
