MACKLEY of DcLassus THE TARIFF QUESTION AGAIN The tariff question is again before Congress and the present dispatch gives us the same arguments pro and con, that have been advanced for one hundred years. This is the question upon which party lines seem to fee most clearly drawn. The Republicans believe in protection not all of them Due nearly all the Democrats are op posed to protection not all of them . but nearly all. There are a few Re publicans who have been emanciDated from the fear entertained by the rest mat a reduction m tariff will ruin the country. The number of these eman cipatea Jtepuoucans is greater now than ever before because a Demo cratic victory followed by prosperity proved that prosperity is not depend ent on a high tariff. But while this proof is abundant and complete it is entirely ignored by the papers that represent the protected interests; they again repeat the old worn argu ments about protection to home in dustries. . , i While nearly all of the Democrats understand the fallacy of protection and are prepared to present the Dem ocratic arguments against the system that taxes the many for the benefits of the few. we have still a few Demo-1 crats who dead for protection on the things in which they are interested "if there is to be protection on any thing." Of course, one who asks pro tection for himself is not in (position to deny protection to any others who ask for it, but these constitute but a email fraction of the Demxratic par ty. The tariff question gives the Democrats an opportunity to solidify the party ranks and 'to make occa sional converts from the Republicans on schedules that are absurdly high. There never was a sound reason for a purely protective tariff and never will be, and there is less now than in the earlier years of the discussion. One of the points that should be emphasized is that the Republican leaders never vote the benefit directly to the parties in whose interest they claim to act. .They always speak of the laboring man and predicate their support of the tariff on the ground that the tariff is necessary to keep up wages. If they really believe this why do they not favor a bounty paid directly to the wage earners instead of a tariff given to the employer as trus tees for the laborers ?v The employers never pay any more wages than they are compelled to pay and the big em ployers are now uniting in an effort to destroy labor organizations in order to lower wages. Republican leaders fail to see any inconsistency between raising of the tariff and the lowering of wages al though the manufacturers profit by both processes. The vigor with which Republican leaders are now urging a high tariff indicates that they expect to give it to the manufacturers and "fry the fat out of them" in the cam paign, as in the days gone by. Success to the Democrats 1 Their attack upon a high tariff is just; if they fail in their effort to protect the public, the highest prices which will follow increased tariff will bring us votes this fall. W. J. Bryan, in Com moner. In the candidacy of Dr. J. L. Eaton, of Bismarck, Mo., for the Democratic nomination for Congress in this Dis trict, they have a man whose ability is unquestioned and who has amply proven his worth in the service of the public. When you go to cast your vote, August 1st, remember this can didacy. Reynolds CountyJ)utlook. FOR THE SUPREME COURT There are threo candidates to be nominated for Supreme Court next Tuesday, at the primary, by the Dem ocratic voters one in Division No. 1, and two in Division No. 1. : In Division No. 1, Judge W. T. Rag land has no opposition. In Division No. 2, two are to be nominated and each voter is entitled to vote for two. Judge Robert F. Walker is a can didate for re-election in Division No. 2. He is now serving his first term as Judge, and is now asking a second term. It has been the custom in Demo cratic National, State and county pol itics for many, many years to give a second term to Democratic candidates who are serving their first term. This precedent is almost without exception. Judge Walker has been an able, in dustrious, fearless Judge. His pudg ments and opinions rank with the very best. He is vigorous, strong and ca pable. His record and candidacy have been endorsed by both the Missouri State Bar Association and the St. Louis Bar Association. His record and candidacy are en dorsed by judges and lawyers in every district, and every county in Missouri. With te experience of his first term, he will improve with his second term. He ought to and will be renominated. Judge Walker is entitled to and should receive every Democratic vote in this county and in this Judicial Circuit. BREWSTER FOR CONGRESS ; - 4 -ft lA .

Writes To the Voters of the 13th Congres-1 Bional (District: I am profoundly thankful to the Democrats of this District for ' the h.onor of being the Democratic nomi nee for Congress in the nast. I went aqwg 'ath 'my party in an unsur mountable and overwhelminir land slide, when the 'minds of manv neanle were in a-street eonrusion and un rest, by reason of Republican mis representation; but a new- day has dawned, they wanted,, a change ; and they got it. I am again seeking the Democratic nomination fc-r Congress and base my claim to it on the unwritten rule of Democracy to give a land-slide vie- " Among the "recent able opinions written by him was the one in which he decided that the attempt of the Hyde Republican administration to "gerrymander" our own excellent Circuit Judge Peter Huck out of of fice was unconstitutional, thereby sav ing Judge Huck's tenure of office dur ing the term for which he had been ! elected by our people. &:r ' In voting for Judge of the Supreme Court Division No. 2, be sure Judge Walker's name is on your ballot un- scratched. - Abundant fossil flora found in rock beds in North Dakota shows that what is now a treeless plain was once cov ered with splendid forests of hard woods, . interspersed with conifers. Numerous and thick beds of lignite make it clear that in this region there were great swamps at one time. Fig trees and a fan palm with leaves six feet across indicate- that the climate was as warm or warmer than that now prevailing on the South ' Atlantic slope of the United States," The most patient man is a resident of Buenos Aires. With only a file he has worked 11 years in making a miniature locomotive of scrap iron. The locomotive can be operated under its own power by the use of com pressed air. The iron was not heated in the making but was worked cold. A small coal tender and passenger coach were made at the same time and the whole thing is a little more than six feet in length and weighs 170 pounds. More than 1,300 screws and 2,000 riv ets were used in the work. The train is complete to the last tiny detail and is built on the model of the equipment used on the British railroads of that country. ' The announcement of J. Scott Wolff for the Democratic nomination for I Congress is published in this paper, and 1 take pleasure in testifying to his ability and fitness for the position he seeks. Dr. Wolff was born in Pennsylvania and came with his car- I ents to Missouri while in his child j hood, the family making St. Louis jtneir nome ior many. ears, in isuo ne became aresident of f estus, and with his goodw ife has there reared a family which reflects honor on their loving parents. He enlisted and Berv- i ed nearly three years in the Philli :' pine Islands during the Spanish- f a : l.i . . . American war, Demg aiscnBrgeo at Jefferson Barracks. Mr. Wolff was a member of the 47th General Assem bly, and was elected Mayor of Festus three times, when he refused to run again. His official life is without blemish, as is his personal character, and rare good judgments nd ability have marked his private and public life. The Register presents him to its Democratic readers as one qualified to ably serve them with ezal and fidelity. He is a Democrat unashamed of his training in the school of Jefferson and Wilson.
