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

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
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
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
