The Dallas (Texas) Morning News suggests that the $1,808, 000 fine recently paid the state by the Waters-Pierce Oil Co., be given to the state legislature in order to get them to adjourn. Can anyone suggest a remedy for the case in Arkansas? The proposed increase of the duty on wheat by the term s of the Aldrich bill is a sop for the fanner. The duty on wheat under the Dingley bill was 25 cents a bushel and it remained so in the Payne bill, but in the Senate Mr. Aldrich increases it to 30 cents' This, of course, is to fool the farmer and make him think the wheat growing in dustry is protected against for eign importation. This idea is scouted when we come to think that this country is an exporter and not an import er of wheat. The United States leads all other countries in the production of wheat. The sta tistics of 1907 show' 634,087,000 bushels as the production of this country, while Russia,in Europe, the nearest competitor, produced only 455,970,000, with France, : the next in line, showing a yield of 369,970,000. With Austria, Roumania Bulgaria, Belgium,; Great Britain. Portugal, Mexico, j Servia, Japan and other countries importing wheat and the United j producing a surplus, a protec-j tive tariff on wheat is meaning less, whether it be 10 per cent or 100 per cent. The legislation that the farmer needs is protection from the sharks who prey upon the pro ducts of his labor and get rich quick on fictitiously inflated prices, all of which go into the pockets of the speculators and none of it into the pockets of the producer. —Ark.
