in the greater celebrations. This is a
wise thing to do, for the reason that it
shows the business men are ever on

much to make the home folks feel that
they are! not neglected. A year ago
the city gave one of the greatest and

On the subject of conservation of our
resources the other day President Taft
"The conservation of national resour
ces is a subject which properly will
claim from the present administration
earnest attention and appropriate legis
lation. The necessity for a compre
hensive and systematic improvement
of our waterways, the preservation of
our soil ard of our forests, the secur
ing from monopolistic private appro
priation the power in navigable streams
the retention of the undisposed coal
lands of the government from complete
alienation-all these matters are vi
tally important to the people of the
United States and to your constituency,
the business men of the country.
Without the resources which make
labor productive, American enterprise,
energy and skill would not in the past
have been able to make headway
against hard conditions. Our children
and their children will not be able to
make headway if we leave to them an
improvished country. Our land, our
waters, our forests and our minerals
are sources from which come directly
or indirectly the livelihood of all of us.
The 'conservation of our natural re
sources is a tuestion of fundamental
importance to the United States now,
to the business man today."
REVISION OF THE TARIFF.
By a plurality of 1,045,715 votes the
republican party was commissioned to
revise the Tariff on its own terms; that
such duties should be imposed as would
'equal the difference between the cost
of production at home and abroad togeth
er with a reasonable profit to American
industries." This is the principle upon
which the two houses of Congress are
proceeding that is to say, the major
ity in each and both. The people want
dispatch, provided it be consistent with
full consideration of industrial condi
tions and the necessity of raising rev
enue to make good a deficit and meet
the expense of administering the gov
erment. It will be remembered that in
1W2, there was an era ot nigli prices
and there came a cry for a revision of
the Tariff downward, and the democrat
tic party was by the votes of the peo
pie commissioned to revise it. Grover
Cleveland was elected president, and a
majority of Congress elected that year
were democrats, and they proceeded to
revise the tariff according to the demo'
cratic idea ot a downward revision.
The result of their effort was the Wi!
son-Gorman Tariff Bill. The laboring
men and the business men well retnem
ber what followed. Manufactures
were closed and laboring men were
without employment. The farmers al
so remember how such a revision of the
Tariff affected the consumer and the
farmer. The people of this country do
not want a repetition of the Wilsor.-
The republican party, which is calkd
upon to legislate in an era of high
prices, abroad as well as at home, must
consider that the the county has grown
and the expenses of the government ad
ministered on economical lines has
necessarily increased. It may disap
