Washington Post.
"A day or two ago I read in The
Post that the Republicans have i
about abandoned hope of defeating ,
the Underwood tariff bill in the Sen-
ate or even of securing any sub-,,.
stantial amendments to the bill.
said If. A. Chadwick, a banker of
Jackson, Miss., at the Raleigh. "Hut
I think the developments of the last
few days may change the situation
within a short time, and I base my
belief on the fact that on Saturday
afternoon I was in the office of a
prominent Southern Senator and saw
upon his desk an enormous number
of letters that had not been opened.
Upon remarking to the Senator's sec
retary that he was careless in not
looking after his correspondence, I
was informed that he had exactly
1,27 2 letters which he had been un-
able even to ouen up to that time.
and that he had in the preceding day
or two opened and briefed more than
500, and in many cases answered
them. The secretary further told
me that practically every one of the
1,272 represented the protest of
some constituent of the Senator
against this or that item of the tariff
bill. I learned, too, that this was
. .
not an isolated case, but that fully
7." per cent of the members of the
Senate are receiving protests liter-
ally by the bushel every day.
"With such a storm of protest, I
do not believe that it is possible for
the finance committee to resist the
demand for hearings, nor do I be-
lieve it will be possible to pass the
Underwood bill in the Senate with-
out very material and very radical
amendments in nearly all sched-

Washington, I). C, May 13, l!M3.
Never in the history of this gov-
eminent have there been so many
vigorous protests against any piece
of legislation as are now coming up
to Washington, from every part of
the country, against tho proposed

tests are not coming simply t-'um

. manutacturers and irom northern
and Republican States. Strange to
say, they are coming in greater vol-
ume from the Southern States and
from Democrats.
We learn from a number of
sources that these protests that the
proposed Democratic tariff bill will
not only close most of the manufae-
turing enterprises in the South, and
throw laborers out of employment,
but that the value of farm products
; have been and will be most serious-
j ly affected. We understand that

these evils removed there was every
reason to believe that it would cause
the Republican party to come to
gether and make the organization
truly Progressive, as it wras under
Abraham Lincoln.
Also, it was pointed out that the
legislation that the Democratic party
is threatening to put upon the coun
try, is enough to make Republicans
sink minor differences and get to
gether to redeem the nation, as a pa-
triotic duty.
The Democratic Currency Bill.
Many Democratic leaders, as well
the country generally,, ha ve been I
prised that President Wilson !
surprised that President Wilson
should strongly insist that the cur
rency bill, desired by the bankers,
should be rushed through the pres-
jent session of Congress. Attention
is also called to the fact that the
Democratic party did not point out
to" tha country, in the last com
paign, any specific measure of cur
rency reform for which they stood.
Everybody is now wondering what
kind of currency legislation Presi
dent Wilson means to force through.
One prominent Western Congress
man observed today, that all he
knew about the present currency
i e s was that he warned to endorse
the Aldrich currency bill In a speech. I
; in the last campaign, and that re
cently the President had been quot
ed as saying that It .ras important
to set up a currency bill that would
meet the approval of the banker.
Within the last few days there
has been much general discussion
about this proposed currency bill,
and in connection with the discus
sion there has arisen a susirestlon
hat the fact that the President is
t-o strongly In favor of a currency

thing is certain, and that is-
that the country will watch, with U
today, to understand the difference;
between the currency laws that Wall
Street wants and the kind of lw
that the people want.
A Big Pie Counter Scheme.
It has just announced by the
Postmaster General thru the Presi-
dent will revoke the orders issued
by President Tafr. placing all of the
fourth class postmasters tinder the
civil service, and that a civil ser-
vice examination will be held to se-
left these postmasters. It hvs just
. . -
developed, however, rhar the plan is
not to appoint the postmasters that
receive the best grades in this exam-
ination, but that the Postmaster
General, after holding the examina-
tion, shall be allowed to select any-
one of the three highest that pass;
the examination.
That will mean that if a Hepubli-1
can should pass the examination and
should secure a grade of 19 per cent
of a possible 10 per cent, and
if another Republican should pass
the examination and secure, say a
grade of S3 per cent, and that if one
could be turned down and the Dem
ocratic mediocre politician, securing
the grade of only 70 could be ap
pointed. This is merit, under the

However, it was really not neces-
sary to send a commission to Pnrone
! reading a"d formed people. The;
these farm banks a success, has been
the securing of a sufficient quantity
of cheap capital to be loaned to the
farmers at from three to four per
cent interest.
This country is in a position today
to solve this question, by using the
enormous deposits in the Postal Sav
ings Bank, on which the government
pays only 2 1-4 per cent interest, for
that purpose. This money could be
loaned to the farmers at three or
; four per cent and then leave a profit
large enough to cover all costs of
'the transaction, and besides leave a'
sinking fund.
This country has been lending
enormous sums of money To the na-
enormous sums or money
tional banks without interest, and
has only recently began to charge i
the banks two per cent interest on
government money. If the postal
savings banks should not furnish
sufficient money to finance these
farm loan banks, then this money
that is being loaned to national
banks at two per cent interest could
be loaned to the farm banks at even
a greater rate of interest, to supple
ment the funds from postal savings
banks. Here is a great field for a
little statesmanship and common
