A NAME THAT FITS The more the New York Herald talks alKiiit the ponding Proflteecrs Tariff bill the more pointed and cm | photic are its utterances. This great 1 Republican newspaper, like the man who was driving a balky horse which would go if called a certain name, has called the pending tariff bill every j name it could think of. At least It has j thought of tlie right name to charact erize this particular piece of leglsln tion, saying: “The New York Herald, reflecting the protective principles and convlc | tions of its owner. Is a consistent nnd steadfast advocate of tlie American. tariff system. But tlie owner of the New York Herald cannot stand for, damn Jool protectionism nnd the New York Herald will not stand for it ” Now wo know for sure from n Re ‘ publican authority Just what kind of 1 n tariff bill this Fordney-McCunilier thing is.
