J. Edward Addicks of Delaware , or somewhere , shows his apprecia tion of trying to fool the people about tainted campaign funds by sending in his dollar like a real reformer. It does seem rather ungracious to charge Sir Thomas Lipton a large tariff tax on the gold cup he has presented to the New York Yacht Club , as a prize for the yachts to race for. A good many men who voted for Mr. Koosevelt have not yet paid their $1 assessment , or the campaign fund would have over $6,000,000 , which is just about what the trusts and I insurance companies put up in 1904 : , for the Eoosevelt campaign. As the republican leaders are only asking for a dollar from their active supporters for campaign purposes , they ' must have de termined to reduce the price for votes in the close districts to about the same figure. Rather a come down from the usual price. . There would never have been any trust magnates , if republican laws had not fostered them. Therefore change tne laws instead of standing pat as the republicans declare is their intention. The issue is so plain that ' 'way-faring man though a fool cannot err therein. " When you come to think of how much it costs to live in these pip ing times of tariff protected trusts , there should be no wonder that ordinary republicans , who are not favored pap-sucking government officials , should be "rather slow" at contributing to the campaign fund that is to be used to elect another stand pat congress. Wheat is ten cents a bushel -lower in price than last year although it is still protected by the tariff rate of 25 cents a bushel. The price of all the farmers are buying is however at the top notch and in fact the price of all trust products protected by the tariff is higher thisyear than last. Puzzle , why do some farmers support the republican tariff-trust policy that plunders them ? Gov. La Follette has accom- plised results i n Wisconsin , through his persistent de termination that railroad rates shall be regulated with fairness to both railroads and shippers. The state railroad commission has reduced grain rates one cent a bushel. The reduction is not so great , but it shows that rates can be reduced when unreasonable. According to the statisticians the democrats are certain to win in 37 congressional districts that are now represented by republicans andlhave more than an even chance of capturing the 20 other districts necessary for a majority. If those independent and republican voters , who want the trust fostering tariff revised , vote as they talk , the standpatters will hardly have a leg toQstand on. THE TARIFF ON SALT- Every three people , on the average , use a barrel of salt a year. The total amount consumed iast year was 26,872,700 barrels , which included only 1,151,133 barrels imported from foreign countries. The tariff duty on salt is 12 cents per 100 pounds in packages and 8 cents per 100 pounds If imported in bulk. This amounts to 33.32 per cent duty on salt in packages and 83.16 per cent duty in bulk , according to the government statistics of imports for 1905. This large protective tariff duty allows the salt trust to charge about double the price salt would sell for than it would if the duty was abolished. So when the farm er buys a barrel of salt about one half the price he pays is increased profit to the trust , because the trust is protected from competition. The salt imported in packages cost in the country from which itwas imported , 40 cents per hundred pounds , and the salt in bulk 10 cents per hundred pounds. Salt can be made here at about the same cost as abroad , so the profits of the trust , it will be seen are enormous. As the salt trust is protected by the tariff from 33 to 83 per cent , or an average of over 58 per cent , every family has to pay about double for what they use in consequence of this special protection to the trust. The salt trust is but one of many trusts that plunders the American people and yet the republican leaders have decided to stand pat and let the plundering continue. Do you republicans feel inclined to follow your leaders program ? KEEP HIM ON THE STUMP. There has never been much pro spect of the republicans being able to hold their 1904gamsm Missouri , but since Secretary Shaw has taken the stump there , it is a sinch for the democrats. If President Roosevelt will keep him on the stump in the doubtful states and ; ongressional districts , it will be a god-send for the country in two ways , for it will keep Shaw away from the United States treasury , where he would be 'constantly scheming in the interest of the Rockefeller banks , and will ensure a large number of republicans voting the democratic ticket. TARIFF ISSUE IS SIMPLE- The whole tariff issue , as far as the voters can settle it ; is shall the tariff rate that shelters the trusts be revised , so that being high enough to produce what revenue the government needs , yet not so high as to protect the trusts from competition ? JThe democrats take the affirmative side of that proposition and the re publicans the negative , the latter having decided against any tariff reform. The sensible voter cannot but decide to vote for a congress man , that is pledged to revise the tariff , by eliminating the chief part , if not all of the protection to trusts and combines , while producing enough revenue to run the govern ment , honestly and economically administered. ADMINISTRATION PROTEC TING SEEF s. PACKERS. A press , dispatch from Chicago reports that"the president does not deem the new meat-inspection bill watertight. " Nor is that the worst of it , for the same dispatch says ; "under the new regulations the packers lose that which is de clared unfit. If a more rigid examination is made before the cattle are shipped or offered for sale much of this loss would not fall on the packers. " Secretary Wilson is in Chicago to arrange for close inspection of cattle at points of shipment. This can only mean that the administration is trying to prevent loss to the beef packers and throw the burden on the farmers , but it would seem that packers are amply protected for they are not compelled to buy cattle that are iiot in good condition when they arrive at the stock yard. The farmers and stockraisers should insist on a square deal and that the administration carry out the law fairly and not attempt to protect the packers , who are quite able to care for their own interests. WHY IS ITTHUS ? A peculiarity of the campaign for United States senator in the repub lican party is that the papers which are loudest in their denunciation of the railroads are openly in favor of Norris Brown , who in reality is the candidate of the railroads and the grain trusts. E. Rosewater is the only republican editor in Nebraska who has had the honesty to stand up for the people's rights when in conflict with the wishes of the rail roads. This is Rooseveltism as they want the people to see it and as the- campaign is to be fought along this line for the republicans , it would seem that some man who is in sympathy with the Roosevelt idea would be acceptable to them for the senate. The past report of the republican party is that they do not desire a man in office who has a strong personality unless he is an easy tool to handle. Rosewater - water is a man of the Roosevelt type , and a man who would not only vote for these principles but would work to have them put into law. It is of no consequence to us , you might say , who is nominated on the republican ticket , but it is. Such a man as Rosewater would work at least part of the time in the interest of the people , while Norris Brown would be the service tool of the cor porations. This is patent to every man who gives an honest thought ; o the situation. Our main object s to call the attention of our read- jrs to the fact and let-them do a ittle thinking along this line. Too often has the republican party pulled the wool over the eyes of the people already and it is time to call a halt. Holt County Independent.
