Shall Clothing prices
go up again?
Last year American wool growers pro
duced 275 million pounds of wool, valued
at 65 million dollars.
To protect 'this industry the Tariff Bill
now before the Senate proposes an import,
tax on raw wool of 33 cents a pound on the
scoured content. The added cost to the
American public will be between 450 and
400 million dollars.
Your share of this enormous amount of
money will be from $3 to $5 on every suit
or overcoat you buy.
It would be a hardship if existing con
ditions made this high tariff necessary, but
the facts are the tariff is higher than neces
sary. Of the 350 million dollars, the total
cost, only about 45 million dollars will go to
the wool industry in "protection.'

TO PARDON MEN ''SENT UP"
""' OVER WAR TROUBLES
Superior, Wis.. July 4. Governor
J. J. Blaine of Wisconsin announced
in an address here today that he
would extend executive clemency to
every man in Wisconsin prisons
"who can trace his plight, directly
or indirectly to causes arising out
of the service to his country.
"No partisan considerations, no
attempts at intimidation by politi
cal conferences will drive me from
that purpose," Governor Blaine said.
"Executive clemency has been
granted to twenty-five ex-service
men and denied to none," he con
tended. "In these cases where I have
granted a pardon, I have found that
all of these boys had a clean record."

Do you want to see
clothes prices go
Most of us think they're high enough now; we'd hate
to see $4 tacked on to the price of every suit.
That's exactly what is bound to happen if the pro
posed tariff of 33 cents a pound on wool is enacted into
Four dollars might not make much difference to the
rich man who pays his tailor $100 to $150 for a suit of
clothes, but it's a big item to the farmer and the working
man who is forced to economize and yet likes good ma
terials. We are not taking any active part in politics;
don't believe it is a political issue. It's a vital
question of keeping the cost of clothing down.
Write your Senator and Congressman and
tell them what yon think about it.
The old residenters along the Mis
souri river who recall the days when
the river steamers plied up and down
the Big Muddy, bearing their loads
of freight and passengers, may have
' the oDDortunity of once more seem
the river used for the natural means
This city at one time was a great
noint of shipping for the river pack
ets and even at this late day along
the banks of the old stream can be
found the posts once used in tying
nn the steamboats. That it may be
. revived creates a great deal of In
terest among me resiuems oi me
It appears now that there Is a pros
Dect of bringing .about a condition
in the channel and the performance
of the river that will make steam
boat transportation a practical means
of traffic during all but the winter
season and a few weeks when the
stream is running at low ebb.
The tendency of the Missouri river
, is to turn occasionally from its logi
cal and more direct channel and cat
its way through the lands that bor
' der its course. This not only destroys
valuable property but broadens the
! channel and causes silt in great
: quantities to be deposited at the bot-
torn making it shallower. A system
I has been devised and now widely
'used which prevents the river tak
; ing these jaunts across the adjacent
' bottom lands. This holds the river in
its proper course causing it to scour
' a deeper channel. When the method
has been applied to the places where
the river tends to elave its bed then
a channel will be provided that will
admit of steamboat traffic.
The Woods Brothers Construction
Company of Lincoln, Neb., has been
doing a vast amount of work along
the Missouri using this system known
as Standard Current Retards. The
company first used it hve years ago
to protect a large farm which it
owns at Hamburg, lowa, mat was
being cut away by the river. The
company's attention was attracted
previously to a concrete pile devised
and patented by a Burlington rail
road superintendent which could be
sunk to bed rock regardless of the
depth, by a hydraulic process with
out the stroke of a hammer. Recog
nizing that this pile could be sunk
far below the bed of any river out
of reach of scour the company saw
that it could be used as a permanent
anchorage to which trees could be
attached forming retards at such
places where the river was cutting
the banks. So effective did the method-
prove in its first application that
the company undertook outside con
tract work for other land owners
along the river and for railroads
It soon became evident that not
only were the properties along the
shore line being protected but as a
secondary result the channel of the
stream was being deepened. A study
of the river was made and the con
clusion reached that by the placing
of retards in series of from three to
ten. depending on the length of the
cutting section, at intervals of three
or four miles the channel could be
held and somewhat straightened and
made deep enough by the current to
provide steamboat transportation. An
estimate made by a widely known
engineer indicates that the cost of
providing this protection at needed
points in continuous succession
would be scarcely more than half as
much as it would cost to make a hard
surface road along the same distance
The work being done for farmer dis
tricts, railroads, cities and towns
will very largely bring about the re
sult though at various points addi
tional co-operation may be needed
and would facilitate progress. Un
doubtedly navigation is nearer a
realization on the Missouri today
than at any time since mid western
development got well under way.

New York, July 4. An attack on
the "insane and pernicious saturna
lia of socialistic legislation." passed
by and being urged upon congress,
was made today by Senator Stanley,
democrat, Kentucky. In an address
here at a Tammany Hall celebration.
Traditional principles of the Amer
ican government are being aban
doned, he declared, in the so-called
"progressive" movement and the peo
ple are being harrassed by innum
erable government boards and bu
reaus. Criticising the "progressive wing"
of the republican party, he said it
was "the most ingenious inventor of
new ways and means of invading the
vested rights of the states and the
liberties of the citizen."
