Congressman Mag u I re Declares
Determination of Taft Repub
licans Is a Joke.
"The proposal of the Taft re
publicans to make the tariff an is
sue is a joke," said Congressman
Maguire in Washington last Sat
urday in discussing campaign
prospects. "There is no doubt
that the tail! will be the issue,
because the acts of the democratic
bouse am their nullification by a
republican president have 'shown
that there is no hope for tariff re
form in the republican party. Hut
that the republicans themselves
should- seize upon the tariff as a
winning issue is ridiculous.
"The republican party is now
just where it was when President
Taft declared the Payne-Aldrich
bill was the best ever. The party
has not advanced a step since that
time. And the people have al
ready registered their opinion of
that attitude of the republican
"The attitude of the people to
ward the I'ayne-Aldrich bill was
so clearly expressed that, it would
seem that republicans would re
gard that as both a dead and
Since Roosevelt has declared
that the high cost of living will lie
his theme during the coming third
party campaign, a lot of men who
do not forget in twenty-four
hours what Roosevelt did on the
day before, are recalling Roose
velt's altitude toward the tarill'
when he returned from Africa.
They assert, and there is good
foundation for the assertion,' that
Roosevelt prepared a speech de
claring the Payne-Aldrich bill the
best ever drafted. His attitude
was identical wilh that expressed
by Taft at Winona. Before that
speech was delivered, however, I hi'
part of it dealing with the larifT
was toned down. And before I lie
revision of opinion was made
public there was a second toning
down, so that when Roosevelt,
trimming bis sails to the hrccy.es
of popular favor, finally made a
declaration while in South hakola
that was against, the Payne-Aldrich
Since that time he has been
silent on J lie tarifT question. I lur
ing bis administration he was
Milenloit.it. While the "fowa
idea" was till young and Senator
I.a KollelU was laying the 'foun
dation for the subsequent popular
revolution on the tariff question,
Roosevelt displayed no sympathy
wilh these western ideas.
Mis attitude on the tariff was
not a slandpat attitude; it was no
attitude at all, ami this permitted
the senators and congressmen in
terested in the tarifT to hold down
the lid, all to the glee of those
gentlemen who conl ributed and
are still contributing to the
Roosevelt, campaign funds.
Professor Taussig, the econo
mic expert, r ntly published an
analysis of the findings of the
tariff board on the wool schedule,
and democrats are reading it. with
much interest. Taussig shows
that the democratic wool bill did
not cut as deeply as the (hidings
of the tariff board would have
justified. Nevertheless, President
Taft vetoed the bill, on the ground
that it was not scientific reduc
tion, although at the same time
his pet board, according lo Taus
sig, would have cut deeper than
even the democrats proposed.
The Platlsinoulh Turn-Verein
celebrated its twenty-fifth an
niversary Saturday evening by
giving a grand ball for Hie mem
bers and their friends. A very
large crowd was present' to par
ticipate in the dance and the gen
oral gooil time that prevailed. The
M. W. A. orchestra furnished the
music for the ball and greatly
pleased everyone by their rendi
tion of the up-to-date dance
music. The charter members of
the Turn-Verein are rapidly pass
ing away and it did the old mem
bers, as well Hie newer ones,
good to gather together and cele
brate this event. The new hall
has just been completed and it is
certainly a credit to this organiza
tion, as well as the city of Platts-inouth.

Fort Crook Aggregation Could
bnly Stand for Seven Innings
of the Hard Beating.
A very much bum game of base
ball was pulled off on the home
grounds yesterday afternoon,
simply for the reason , that the
Fort Crook leant was outclassed
by the. Plaltsmouth Boosters, and
at the close of seven innings the
visitors were compelled lo quit to
catch their train home. At this
stage the game stood 17 lo 7 in
favor of Plaltsmouth.'
There was more balling done in
this game than all Hie balance
played on the home diamond this
season. Everybody hit the ball
and run Hie bases until they were
tired and ashamed of themselves.
Nine scores were made in one in
ning by the Boosters. Collins, the
pilcher for Fort Crook, started to
play the game, but his support
was so poor that he gave up after
the first few innings.
The visitors should have been
shut out, and had the Boosters
played their usual game this
would have been the result. Mc
Kaig, the Booster twirler, did not
make an effort lo play his usual

Arraigned in Justice Court.
In the case of the State vs. Tom
Julian, for assault .with intent to
wound, the defendant was ar
raigned beore Judge M. Archer
in justice of the peace court this
morning and pleaded not guilty.
The complaint grew out of the
drunken row at Cedar Creek on
July ilh. The complaining wit
ness, Neil Mallon, is in St. Jos
eph's hospital at Omaha, but ex
pects to be out within a few days.
The filing of the complaint was
merely a formal matter and may
be dismissed later on and a dif
ferent and lighter offense charged.
Neither Julian nor Mallon appear
to be of the class ordinarily found
in a disgraceful drunken fight, and
for this reason the county olllcials
may not push the case to the limit.
