Complicating; the Tariff.
Reviewing the attitude of the news
papers of the country the New York
World remarks that "the leading re
publican newspapers of the country,
like the democratic and independent
preaa, have been practically of one
mind In condemning the Aldrlch
tariff bill," and that "this Is the first
tariff bill since the civil war which
has not bad the support of the repub
lican press." The World cites a num
ber of influential republican newspa
pers throughout the country that have
expressed their dissatisfaction with
the progress of tariff revision, and
finds It significant that there are but
a few notable exceptions of newspa
pers that are unconditionally Indors
ing the work of the senate tariff
While the World does not refer
specifically to The Bee, our readers
will recall that from the start we
have proceeded on the assumption
that the final form of the tariff bill
will not be known until It emerges
from the conference committee, and
that there la little more warrant for
passing comment on the senate
schedules as the final draft than there
was for accepting the house schedules
as the last word. We do not hesitate
to say that we are disappointed In
the manner In which the senate has
gone about recasting the house bill,
taking tha house schedules for the
most part as the minimum and strik
ing a mean between them and the
schedules of the present Dlngley tariff.
It should not be forgotten, however,
that before the bill goes to the presi
dent for his approval or disapproval,
the differences between the house and
senate will have to be adjusted In
conference and It Is still possible for
the conference committee to bring or
der out of chaos by compromises that
111 be fairly responsive to the popu
lar demand for real tariff revision.
The development that was not an
ticipated Is the Incorporation Into the
tariff bill of the proposed tax on cor
porate net earnings. While this tax
In Itself Is not specially objectionable
In case It Is needed to produce the re
quired revenue, it looks like the sugar
coating on a tariff pill designed to di
vert attention from the kernel when
It could Just as well wait until after
the tariff Is readjusted and It Is defi
nitely known whether or not addi
tional sources of revenue must be
drawn on. In our opinion revision of
the tariff should have first considera
tion, free from complicating entangle
ments with other methods of revenue
raising. j-
American Capital in Canada.
The intrinsic value of a protective
tariff is conclusively shown In a Can
adian consular report lust made nub
ile, showing that 200,000, 006 of
American capital Is Invested in Can
ada by manufacturers who also have
plants In this country. - These fac
tories have been established in Can
ada to retain trade which Is Imnossl-
ble to supply profitably from the home
factories on account of the Canadian
tariff. The best Information Is there
are 175 of these firms and the largest
plant is that of the International
Harvester company at Hamilton, em
ploying 4,000 men. Shoe manufac
turers are also largely represented.
These Institutions, if It were not for
the Canadian tariff, could undoubtedly
supply the trade from plants In the
United States more economically than
to erect new ones there.
These facts have no bearing- nnon
the Justice or injustice of the nar-
tlcular schedules in our pending tariff
bill, but have a bearing on the value
of the protective principle. They
demonstrate the fallacy of democratic
platform declarations and the short
sightedness of democratic leaders who
are denouncing other democrats In
congress who have favored protective
duties. If the tariff can force our
United States manufacturers to erect
factories la Canada to secure Can
adian trade, a tariff can protect the
home market from unreasonable com
petition from abroad and afford em
ployment at remunerative wages to
thousands of workmen.
Attack on Pare Food Law.
The impression Is growing that the
suit "brought by the Hippollte Egg com
pany against Secretary Wilson Is
backed by large Interests and Is to
be made a test of the validity of the
federal pure food law. The country
at large has little Interest in cases in
volving applications of the law, but
it has a material Interest In its under
lying principles. The allegations In
the petition Indicate that the case
alms to destroy all federal regulation
ot food products by challenging the
power of congress to pass and tha de
partments to enforce a pure food law
as an illegal assumption of the state's
police powers.
State pure food laws have proven
Ineffective to regulate business where
portions of It are Interstate and a por:
tton Intrastate. Local restrictions are
enforclble against home products.
while those from outside frequently
avoid them and varying restrictions
hsmper trade. These facts have
caused the effort to harmonize atate
and federal pure food laws.
Adulterations and deceptions
many articles had grown so common
as to demand the enactment of legisla
tion. Spices were formerly sold that
were only partly spice, fruit products
only partly fruit, maple syrup
whose parentage the maple tree was
guiltless and countless other articles
which were not what they seemed an.il
In many Instances containing Injurl
oua substance. The federal pure food
law was enacted in response to
legitimate demand. Where Its pro
visions work an Injustice it can be
amended, but a denial of the right to
pass such a law, however, would be
a backward step.
Hrst Fruits of tha Deposit Law.
Although the new Nebraska deposit
law has not yet become effective, and
Is not scheduled to be In force until
next month, we are already gathering
Its first fruits. There is no doubt
that the alleged success of the guar
anty experiment tn Oklahoma had
much to do with the spread of tha doe
trine here, and that except for the
Oklahoma Object lesson no such legis
lation would have been enacted tn Ne
braska. The strongest evidence produced In
favor of deposit guaranty was the ex
hibit of the Increased number of banks
availing themselves of the guaranty
fund In Oklahoma, msny of them be
ing reincorporations of national
banks giving up their national bank
charters. It was further predicted,
with some plausibility, that unless the
comptroller reversed his ruling for
bidding national banks to participate
tn state guaranty deposit funds the
national banks in all states where
such guaranty funds were maintained
would find It to their advantage to be
come state banks In order to maintain
their business and standing.
But, here In Nebraska, Instead of
starting an exodus from the ranks of
the national banks to get In on tha
guaranty fund, the first effect of the
new law turns out to be just the re
verse, and as a consequence all the
largest state banks which would have
been compelled to make the heaviest
contributions to the guaranty fund
have converted themselves Into na
tional banks, convinced that under tha
new arrangement the restrictions and
limitations of the national banking
law, although more severe than those
of the state banking law, are still pre
ferable for long established banks cap
italized In excess of national banking
In comparing the effects of tha de
posit guaranty in Oklahoma and Ne
braska one feature should not be over
looked, and that la tho bait of public
deposits held out In Oklahoma to
bring the banks Into the deposit fund.
The Nebraska law, while assuming
that the guaranty fund accords the in
dividual depositor all the security he
needs, still leaves the state, county
and municipal authorities free to place
public money in any depository quali
fying with the required bond, so that
there Is no Inducement to any bank to
accept the guaranty fund scheme In
order to keep Its deposits of public
money. It Is plain already that the
different conditions prevailing In Ne
braska make Oklahoma's experience
with Its deposit guaranty law of little
value In forecasting what will be the
outcome of the Nebraska deposit
guaranty law. .

If Sarpy county gets a windfall from
the Inheritance tax which must be used

is paving. The value of the paved
country road Is almost destroyed if it

Mr. Bryan's Commoner prints his
recent statement explaining his atti

To have been more correct it should

After being quiescent for some

Lord Ro.ebery presents a fine example

fact that tha pending budget lands heavily

Increased percentage of tha "unearned In

official quarters that tha House of Lords
may do tha unprecedented thing and reject
a budget which It cannot alter or amend.
That such a course is unlikely Is Indicated
by Lord Rosebery's frequent letters to the
press, by which means he provides am
munition for tha opposition in the Com
mons and strives to draw away votes. In
his latest assault upon the measure Lord
Rosabery denounces his former associates
In the liberal parly for sanctioning social
istic schemes without first submitting them
to a vote of the people, and urges changes
In tha British .constitution which will
check "tha despotism of majorities." "The
absolute rule of tha party tn power," he
writes, "differs little from what we used
to call a despotism. If not, tho nation
must have changed tha character of Its
former Jealous vigilance and regards Its
liberties as replaced by an apathy which is
a sinister If not alarming symptom."
Several violent earthquake shocks have
bee felt during tha first week In June In
the devastated section of southern Italy.
As they recurred regularly every day, seis
mologists were Inclined to believa they
were not ordinary aftershoots and conse
quently connected with the great earth
quake of December 28, 1908, but signs of
new seismic disturbances. Naturally sev
eral correspondents wired tha news to
their papers abroad, but tha censor stopped
all the telegrams. No reason waa given,
but It has leaked out that the society
whose, object it la to attract tourists to
Italy feared that tha possibility of earth
quakes might keep foreigners away and
therefore caused tha suppression of the
telegrams. Tha Influence of tho society
on the censor Is by no means limited to
earthquakea, but extends as welt to the
temperature In summer. In fact, a corre

The struggle against Increased taxation
Is proceeding In the German Reichstag as
fiercely as In the British House of Com
mons. Last week the contest turned upon
taxing the "unearned Increment tn land,"
a acheme whereby the publlo treasury
would profit by sharing directly In the
rise of land valuea. The plan done not
meet with favor as a source of national
revenue, but haa been oflclally endorsed
as a tax pre-eminently suited to municipal
finance. Several German cities already Im
pose such taxes, notably Frankfort, where
the tax on Increase In land values Is col
lected whenever real estate Is transferred
In ownership. The Imperial government's
decision In this matter, however, does not
seem to advance the financial legislation
which It so ardently desires from the Rel-h-stag.

8 will make notable the 100th anniversary
of the Important battle of that name, In
which Peter the Great finally broke the
power ot Charles XII of Sweden and there
by made sure of territorial access to the
Baltic sea for tha Russian empire. Poltava
was one of tha moat decisive battles In
modern history, since It made modern Rus
sia possible. Charles XII never recovered
from the blow. He fled to Turkey the
same year and died not long after he had
returned to Sweden. Never since then have
the Swedes been able to revive the tradl
tlona of Guatavua Adolphu. and become a
first-class military power. But the people
have prospered In all the arts of civilisa
tion and peace far beyond the victors at
Poltava. In that fact lies the essence of
true greatness.

The vote by which hides were taken off
tha free list, where the Payne bill put
them, shows how senators ars governed
by local, selfish considerations In fram
ing; a tariff bill. Ten democrats repudiated
tha party doctrine of free raw materials
because they believed their constituent.,
mostly democrats, approved of a duty on
hides. New England senators who have
been standing by the finance committee
while It was bestowing excessive proteo
tlon on the cotton and woolen Industries
of their section, broke away from It In
tha matter of hide, because the great
shoe manufacturers of New England
asked for free raw material. Borne of the
"Insurgent" senator, who have been strug
gling to get cheaper cotton and woolen
clothing for the people voted against giv
ing them cheaper shoes. They were afraid
their farming constituents would be of
