A Serious Accident On Tuesday while Kenneth DeWilt, of Woodruff, was fooling with, a thirty-thirty revolver it was accidently discharged the ball passing entirely through his hand and wrist shattering and mangling every bone in the heal of the hand and wrist and cutting away a part of one of the bones of the forearm. Dr. Brown was 'called immediately and found up- "on examination it would be nec essary to take the hand off at the wrist. This was done and the patient is getting along nicely. Dr. Brown explaiaed to us that unless he had taken the hand off at the wrist at once the probable results would be that the arjn . would have to be takhn off with in a few days as the ball was a 'soft one and had done great dam age and the wound would have become infected.

Presi dent Taft's emphatic declaration yesterday that he regarded that the republican platform meaning was and that the sentiment of the whole people is, demanding "rev ision downward" has eclipsed in interest all minor and specific details of the tariff struggle today It is clear that the president in tended it as an ultimatum, and many believed it barely concealed a threat of a veto if the bill did not f ulfull the party pledges. Most of the members of con gress refuse to discuss the matter but some say privately that it means defeat of the bill. Those less excitably inclined took the view that the president has simply made the long foreseen move, essential to the "logic of the game." They further state that it will mean speedy dissolu tion of the opposition to down ward revision and the termination of the long, fight, which will place the bill in the hands of the president in the shape he all along intended it should be. One senator said that he be lieved it would be impossible to secure support fulfilling the pre sident's demand for free raw material. For instance, he didn't believe that the senate would pass the bill putting hides on the free list, and said that the out look was discouraging. The official statement made at the White House was as follows: "Mr. Young of Michigan opp osed free ore; Mr. Mondell opp . osed free coal ane reciprocity with Canada, and free hides, each on the ground that the policy j would injure the interests in his state, and discussion was ' parti cipated it by other represent atives who urged that the doct rine of free raw materials was not a republican doctrine. The president replied that he was not committed to the prin ciple of free raw material, but that he was committed to the principle of a downward revision of the tariff and he was obliged to look at the ..matter not from the standpoint of any particular district, but from the standpoint of the whole country, . and also from the standpoint of the resp onsibility of the entire republican party. He said the question in each case was a question of fact, to be determined by evidence as to whether a rate was excessive, so that a downward revision, or the putting: of the article on the free list would not injure the in dustry. "He said that he had reached this construction of the platform on what he understood to be the principle of protection and justification namely . that after an industry was protected by a duty equal to the difference be tween cost of production abroad and the cost of production in this country, including a fair profit, the energy and enterprise of Amei-ican business men and capi talists, the effectiveness of American labor, the ingenuity to American inventors, and the impules of competition behind a tariff wall would reduce the cost of production and with such re duction the tariff rate would be come unnecessarily high and ought to be reduced. "The president said he felt strongly the call for downward revision within the limitations of the productective principle, and that he hoped to be able to res pond to the call as he heard it, in the interests of the party as well as of the country." Mr. Taf t up to this time had not permitted himself to be quoted in connection with the tariff struggle. His frame of mind was indicated in his New Haven speech on June 30, how ever, in which he warned the republican party that if it did not keep its promises it wouKbé relegated to the minority. Tc.y president ha3 been careful liere tofore" to. let no impression gain ground that he was dictating to congress. The conferees today agreed on a reduction of 5 pe cent in the Dingley rates on women's and children's dress good3 made of cotton warp.
