THE TARIFF BOARD. A pretty light is being made on the Tariff Board. The Repub licans want the board beciuse it tits into their program for tariff revision. The Democrats do not want the board but the country has been educated up to believe that the board is something of moment, The House refused any appropriations for the board. The Senate has voted such ap propriations, but stipulated that the board shall report to Con gress rather than to the 1 'resi dent. That was a shewd thrust at Democratic leaders. They have been criticizing the board on the ground that tbe:e is no warrant in law for the board to report to the President. It" was Cougress who should have the information rather than the Executive. Some House Democrats may have to vote for this Senate pro vision. Dr. Wilson is said to lavor it. and Dr. Wilson's views go with Democrats these days. But after all the Senate and the HouseJ mutt settle the matter for them selves and they can not do so without a hard combat. Congress these days is advanc ing: much novel legislation, Many of the bills are preliminary. The House will vote '"aye" upon them, and the Senate will refuse to vote at all. The short session will come Toere wi'l be a mighty rush to distribute rations to the Govern ment (pass the supply bills), and opponents of these novelties will indulge in a feeling jf satisfac tion. But a goodly portion of the at tempted legislation is destined to be written upon the statute books, for these are not times when stalwart Rwpublicans can . in ,-n'onr'li ( no mens VP " - I in that category is toe esiaomn- ment of a Department ot Labor Presidents speaking out of their experience have said that the Cabinet already is quite large; enough and have discouraged ' divers proposals for new Depart ' ment.

LABOR WANTS REPRESENTATION, But organized labor is clamor ing for a representative of its own in the Cabinet, and appar ently will have one within a year or two. The bill for a Depart ment of Labor has passed the House and been fa vorably report ed to the Senate- If it can not be driven thru there at this ses sion, it will be at the next ses sion or in the next Congress. Then organized labor will be coming forward with candidates. for the Cabinet. There will be (.norts to cnoose men oi aucn . . , - - 1- high character and attainments as Commissioner Charles P, Neill, of the Bureau of Labor. The struggle on tbe part of Pre sidents hereafter will be to get a man of that type rather than the type of man who rises to the head of labor organizations. The chances are that the head of some labor organization will win in that character of strug gle. A few years ago the Bureau of Immigration was created by act of Congress. Organized la bor demanded forthwith that the Commissioner of Labor be a un? ion official, ar.d a union official it has been ever since the Bureau was in existence. Organized la bor has been in command of the administration of that Bureau, as it probably will be-in the new department of Laber. It Will be no mean advantage, when labor officials are constantly in the Washington throng, advocating and urging a hundred matters, year in and year out, affecting the status of those who toil. irawtne or uhoto. for txpart search ud free report Free adrioe, bow to obuln patents, trade autrn, copyright etc, in ALL COUNTRIES.

C Missouri to The Rank Of Progression We had the honor of being elected a delegate to Kansas city by the progressives of Douglas Co. to the convention which was held there, on the 30th. of July 1912- But we were sadly dis- appointed by not getting there, by mishaps and mistakes. But we are proud to read of the man ner in whfch that body of dele gates from all over the state , quited themselves of great hon or. In the work which they did toward the organization of a new progressive party. The child is bora and already in its manhood. The two old party standpatters a splutter, squirm, and squeal, a& much as they please. The progressive party is here to stay. And it is builded upon the foundation of the word of God in language like this "thou shalt not steal." "The people is saving tltis,'' and tbe people mean what they say. They ment it when they sent their delegates to Chicago to what was called the National Re publican convention. And they menl it When they withdrew from that convention. They;" t.

It might be pos sible that from a personal stand point, or a selfish stand point Representative Bartholt could say this of Theodore Roosevelt, Bnt he could not say it from a stand point of principals for the people, and to word the people.

He plaeed a terrible charge agajnst number of tho American citiaens. And many of them who fought under the stars and strioee in the bat tie field, where hundreds of m n bit the dust in death, for ihe same prineipals hicb Boose- velt j,as pgpaused. Let him be a traitor or no traitor to the Re publican party of to day. One thing sure he is not a traitor to tho principals that Abraham Lincoln stood for in his da; and time. We heard an old veteran who fought 4 years in the Rebel lion say that be had a sacrifice to make and that was tho name of the Republican party but the party had beo me so cor upt that he would have to make that nacrirtce, and adopt a new name Therefore I shall stay by the Re publican principals of Abraham Lincoln. But I must give np the name of the Republican par ty he said. To say that T. R. is a traitor to the Republican party, is to ?ay that all such old veter ans are traitors to the party. Bat n. they are not traitors to ths good 'dd principals.

And the people are not inclined to dc that And therefore, v .ise their voice in protest. But now people of all political beliefs of the past, we wish to say to you that there Is yet dan ger, satan is always alert, o as a roaring hen seeking wham he may devour, There is bat one way te avoid bis clutches, or devices, and that is to take Ik Word of God as a lamp to our i feet, and a light to eur pathway: I , r mneieen snored years ago this and law was given to , . . , man and men.

Bat ; now in the twentieth eentury 1 , , ,. ., light, because their deeds ars evil, Hence, we wrestle net against flesh and blood, but acainstjjrin cipalities, against powers, a gainst spiritual wickedness in high places. So while the people have this spiritual wickedness in high places, to eontend with, it be hooves them to be strietly on the other side. Putting on the whole armor of God, inoider to be able to stand. As the Colo inel said, they may call us Socitl- jists: and well they might, for in i the sence that we are writing we are and will be a Bible 80 ! cialist. And thelprincipals that Roosevelt has -stepped cut on, are the principals that our ,'ore .fathers faHght fcr. Tbe great est pity is this, that sueh men as Koosevelt, Bryon Debs and others, cans-1 tinite their mights together In tUa same ranks. I and fight with the Bible in Home In-iustry, This great, of iritni! wikedoef in nig!! places, witn all their power to kill its influence. Home Industry is Bible So cialism, and the bent form of governmrBr that ever was placed over man. So In the place of trying to serve God and tnaia mon lets serve Gou and t!i?
