Party Is at Its Old Tricks, Subordlnat- Ing th interests of the Country to Its Own Welfare Obliga tions Disregarded. jj tne Democratic leaders In the bouse of representatives were able to get their program for tariff tinkering taken more seriously they might In fluence profoundly the whole course of trade and industry in the United States. If it were believed that they could carry their plans through the enate and the white house their ac tion might have a great effect upon the business and prospects of every aection of the country. In that case the public could not fall to note with di amn v that tK no ty dominant in the house of repre sentatives deliberately turns away from light and seeks to work its will In darkness. It refuses information and acts on less knowledge than it has wJthin reach. It spurns the aid of the tariff commission and chooses for Immediatae revision schedules which the tariff board has not yet re ported upon instead of those which it has investigated at great length and .with extremely enlightening results. This method, this attitude, is so il. logical, so careless of the obligation all lawmakers ought to recognize to get at the truth and act with the full este possible knowledge, that If it could be made effective in the work of amending the tariff grave business disturbances would inevitably follow. It needs nothing more than such legislative trifling with the basic bus iness conditions of the country to tip the balance toward failure for many a venture which mcight succeed with a little better opportunity. It is easy for self-seeking politicians to blight the hopes and darken the lives of thousands of men, drive scores to sui cide and wreck hundreds of homes forever, by subordinating common sense, logic and business principles to the desire for power. In this case, fortunately, there is no reason to fear that in the near future any reckless and ignorant tariff legis lation can become a part of the law of the nation.

Such work cannot be done hastily. Careful investigation is necessary, and the board itself knows when it is ready to report. It is not to be be lieved that the board is willfully de laying its report on the Iron and steel tariff or on any of the other work It has undertaken. Because the report is not imme diately forthcomings the house Demo crats profess to suspect there is some kind of collusion between the board and the president They seem to fear that there is a plot to prevent tariff revision during the present session. The proposed abolition of the board can be considered merely as a threat of punishment. Congress Is, of course, in no sense bound to follow data presented by the board. The reports are not even in the form of recommendations. All that President Taft demands is that the reports of the board be given con sideration, Inasmuch as they, repre sent the best thought on exceedingly difficult problems.

Why did Harper's love Wilson so? That is a publication avowedly de voted to the old-time theories of government. And Woodrow Wilson was Its presidential choiee. Yet he is making a campaign for the presi dency on the progressive platform, including the initiative, referendum and all the fixings. How can the affinity of Harper's for such a man be explained? The suspicion could not be remote that Editor Harvey felt that Mr.' Wil son would become conservative if elected president That has often happened before to men suddenly charged with authority. The "outs" are proverbially radical, and the "Ins," from Jefferson down, strange ly cautious. Harper's devotion has looked like discounting such a rever sion of Wilson's attitude to his orig inal position.

Of that, however, 'there is little chance, because of the general fear of hostile popular senti jment which Influences even those rep resentatives and senators who are jxnost thoroughly convinced of the jneed of far-reaching and radical jchanges in the monetary system of jthe country. In respect to currency irefonn there Is much more reason to 'expect inaction than there is to fear grave mistakes in the line of con structive legislation. Where Labor Benefits. Labor's share in tariff benefits is to be found In wages from two to ,twen jtj times higher than In other parts of khm world; also in the certainty of em ploytaent. Labor's share is represent ed In the higher standard of living and in the nearly $5,000,000,000 of deposits in American savings banks, and as much more in building and loan associations, life Insurance, etc. The real test of Democratic sinceri ty will come when the time arrives to open the congressional pork barrel Two alternatives are possible. It is to be hoped that the board, without undue haste, may be able to present a report, or at least some preliminary data, during the present session of congress. The second alternative would be for congress to enact some kind of revision prior to the board's report and In spite of President Taft's threatened veto. More thor ough revision might come later. The best course for the house ma jority is to urge that the report b made as speedily as possible and to abandon thought of punishment if the request is not complied with.
