The business man who will not ad

TllK citizen who will do nothing to help
his town is helping to dig its grave.
i HE citizen w ho "knocks and howls
"hard times" preaches the funeral
in a w li'c as a protest iginst repub
lican degeneracy. A reading of the
Omaha World-Herald during one
municipal campaign in its home city
would so intensify our disgust that
it would be impossible to vote the
democratic ticket for several
months until the odor died away.
Only a few years ago the World
llcrald attacked Mayor Moores
viciously because of his truckling to
the "liberal" (criminal) element.
Then came Dahlman, and now the
World Herald is supporting him
with all its might, making a special
point against his opponent, Mr.
Hreen, that he is decent on the
"liberal" question. In view of the
notorious fact that Dahlman is ten
times worse than Moores ever was,
it is plain that the World-Herald
roasted Moorse because he was a
republican and not because he Htood
for unclean elements in the city
government. Possibly the World
Herald may find it out after a while,
but if it did not know it, there art
multitudes of decent democrats all
through the state who feel the
same sense of nausea. --Ashland

PLAIN REASONS PORATARIFF
We have for two or three years past
at different times found opportunity in
these pages to show reasons w hy some
kind of tariff commission or bureau at
Washington ought to be organized on a j
permanent basis to deal thoroughly
, and carefu'ly with perplexing problems
and disputed fact relating to various ,
I schedules and industries, nr.d also to
j aid in the problems that arise in the
I administration of the tariff and its ap-1
'plication to particular countries. In
February, as our readers may remem
ber, theie was held in Indianapolis a
large conference called by the National
j Manufacturers' Association, to organ-
! ize a movement on behalf of the
I of a permanent tariff commission. The
committee appointed ct that time
under the chairmanship of Mr. II. E.
Miles, of Raeir.e, Wis., has been work
ing quietly but diligently at Washing
ton, and its efforts have met with
growing encouragement from week to
week, as the difficulties of devising a
tariff under the present methods have
been brought to light in hundreds of ' p
. . . V
concrete instances. it woual oe a
great mistake to undervalue the intelli
gence of the committees of the two
Houses of Congress. Mr. Payne and
others of the Ways and Means Commit-;
tee have an extraordinary knowledge j
of tarilf facts. The same thing may be j
said of Mr. Aldrich and some members'
of the Senate Committee. Cut there ;
are many issues involved in the fram-1
ing of a tariff that require a more, pro- i
longed and thorough inqury than it has j
been possible for either of these Con
gressional committees to bestow. The
experiences of Germany, France, and I
other countries in tariff-making, as set j
forth in this Review last month, show 8
that it has been found useful aboard to
entrust the complexities of tariff-making
to experts working patiently as a
commission. Of course, no one pro
poses, whether here or in Europe, to
give any authority to the findiitgs of a
tariff commission, until thoroughly dis
cussed liv the nroner law-making bodies !
and enacted into statutes. Review of

"A publication in this immediate
locality took the Journal to task
for endorsing Mayor Jim Dabhnnn
of Omaha for re-election. The peo
ple of Omaha gave Jim Hahhnan
four thousand plurality and the
Journal is satisfied." I'lattsmouth
Journal, May 5.
We can understan why "the Journal
is satisfied," but we cannot understand
how the respetable element of the rank
and file of the democratic party can
swallow the Journal's rot. The Jour
nal has never condemned gambling,
prostitution and lawlessness. And, j
above we give the Journal's boast that !
it is the friend of Jim Pahlman, the
"friend" of John C. Mabray, the swin
dler, confidence man and buncoist. l!e
ow we give the views of others on tin
election of Jim Dahlman. And, here
xve a8k the question. How long will the
respectable element of the rank and
file of the democratic party tolerate the
"The dog has returned to his vo
mit, and the sow to her wallowing
in the mire." This strong Hibieal
illustration is called to mind w hen ; ne
reads in the papers that Omaha has
re-elected Dahlman by an increased
majority. Three more years of the
cowboy mayor. Three more years
of as wide open a town as he dares
to make it. Three more years in
bad oder with the rest of the state.
-Central City Record.
Omaha voted Tuesday to continue
the Dahlman regime. This we con
sider a disgrace to the good name of
Nebraska. It means that the
saloons, breweries, prostitute:! and
other lawless elements f the city
are going to defy the legislature
and any one else w ho would put a
restriction upon their wi le open
policy. - Pender Republican.
No, thank you, it would he im

Tin: democratic nross is hysterica!
just at present as to the interest of
"the ultimate consumer." The first
question to be determined is, who is
entitled to Protection. Our belief is
that the American wage earner is en
titled to the first consideration. Ho is
entitled to be protected in his employ
ment and the wages he receives. Ik-
is a producer and "an ultimate
sumer." Any tariff schedule which
reduces his opportunity to secure em
ployment is wrong. Any tariff sched
ule which does not make ample pro
vision tor tne uiiierence neiween
foreign wages 'and American wages
and a reasonable profit is wrong. The
American workingman is a producer
and he is the largest consumer, parti
cularly of farm products, and the
farmers have always reaped their
greatest financial harvest under a Pro
tective Tariff. The political! may spin
his tine theories, and a hysterical demo
cratic press may shout "robber tariff,"
but the fact remains, that the farmers'
bank account always increases under a
Protective Tariff. Facts always have
and always will beat theories. The
farmers are not as ignorant and as
easily caught as the democratic press
assume they are. So long as the farmer
knows that under a Protective Tariff
he is able to buy an additional quarter
section of land every second or third
year, he is not so very badly worried
about "the ultimate consumer."
