A blunder signalized the legisla
tive career of the present adminis
The democratic tariff bill, fifst
in the articles of democratic faith,
and the one achievement on which
naturally they would be expected
to expend their most exhaustive
study and care, was so clumsily
executed that it failed to accom
plish the results intended. The
failure was due to crude, hasty,
unscientific, secret legislative
Designed to furnish sufficient
revenue to finance the United
States treasury, it has proven ab
solutely inadequate for that pur
In writing the tariff bill the
democrats dimly foresaw a possible
reduction in customs receipts, al
though they did not know how
much and did not ascertain the
facts. So the income tax provision
was incorporated, in the hope that
it would make up for any miscal
culations in the tariff bill, although
the democrats did not know and
did not ascertain the facts. But
what happened when these pro
visions went into effect.
Customs receipts were millions
of dollars below the amount needed
from that source, and at the same
time collections from the income
tax fell many millions below the
amount needed from that source.
The inevitable result was to leave
the treasury without sufficient
money for its needs.
The failure-was caused by care
lessness. Had there been con
scientious, open consideration oi
the revenue bill, sufficient to en
able members of congress to study
ana unuerstanu it, tne reduction in
revenue could have been properl.v
safeguarded. But instead of get
ting accurate information and ade
quate estimates, the democrats
guessed at it. And they guessed
The results of this first mistake
should have been a warning. But
the startling fact remains that the
democrats committed the same
kind of an error again. Forced
by their heedlessness to provide
more revenue, they passed a “wai
tax” in time of peace. Based on
a guess instead of an estimate, the
war tax did not produce money
enough. For months the receipts
of the treasury have been daily
falling short of expenditures at a
rate reaching at times more than a
million dollars a day. According
to official estimates the deficit will
probably amount to one hundred
million dollars by July 1, the end
of the fiscal year.
No chain is stronger than its
weakest link. The fatal weakness
that has characterized the work of
this administration from its incep
tion two years ago has been its
eagerness to propose laws, care
lessness in drafting them, haste in
committee action, and stubborn re
fusal to permit intelligent'amend
ment in either house or senate
after the party brand had been
affixed by the all powerful caucus.
Every American citizen has had
to help pay for these costly ex- J
periments. There will be still;
more to pay until the errors have j
been corrected by thoughtful, in
telligent legislation.
Speaking to the members of the
Associated Press, at its recent
meeting in New York, the presi
dent said that no nation is compe
tent to sit in judgment upon an
other. He was referring,of course,
to the European war; but probably
every man in thecompany thought
at once of Mexico. The judgment
ment which Mr. Wilson says no
nation is competent to exercise is
one which he has persistently at
temped to impose upon Mexico.
He hits declared that Mexico must
have not only the kind of govern
ment which he prefers, but that
such government must be com
posed, not only of the kind of men,
but of the very men whom he fa
vors. The judgment which he
denies to a nation he reserves for
himself. The habits of a life-time
are not easily overcome—the
schoolmaster's least of all.
Trans-Atlantic steamship owners
figure that the European war will
save §275,000,000 to the American
people by shutting off tourist
travel. The tourist will enjoy su
perior scenery and get the benefit
of more healthful outings without
carrying to foreign countries a
quarter of a billion dollars of
money needed by American enter
prise. In effect, it is an applica
tion of the principle laid down by
Abraham Lincoln in his discussion
of the tariff that if we buy goods
abroad, we get the goods and the
foreigner gets the money, while if
we buy at home, we have both the
goods and the money. American
tourists will get both health and
pleasure, and America will keep
the $275,000,000.
In private enterprise, explana
tions and excuses don’t go. The
employer of a traveling salesman
doesn't want explanations; he
wants orders. The manufacturer
doesn't want excuses; he wants
buyers. The employee who comes
back with excuses instead of or
ders, soon loses his job. The
democratic administration has had
many explanations for the busi
ness depression that followed its
accession to power. First it was
“psychological,” then a '‘state of
mind,” then finally the Eurojtean
war furnished a plausible excnse.
But the American people, like all
good business men, want public
servants who deliver results, not
explanations and excuses.
The former editor of the St.
Paul Republican is now advertis
ing manager for a big dry goods
company, of Cedar Rapids, la.
He advocates a percentage of ad
vertising appropriation and by
showing that 84 per cent of the
failures in business are non-adver
tisers proves that those who fail
pay for the advertising the suc
cessful firms use.—Aurora Regis
The post office department start
ed a free employment bureau and
then discharged hundreds of its
own employees. Think of the
irony of it.

The high school base ball team
played Ravenna last Friday. The
score was three to five in favor of
Ravenna. *
Miss Opal VerValin and Miss
Gertrude Kettle, were absent the
first part of the week visiting rela
tives in Hastings.
All things originated from an
idea, either good or bad, and these
ideas originate at teachers’ meet
ing Monday afternoon.
Mrs. Burwell, Mrs. Corning and
Mrs. T racy, visited the school dur
ing .chapel last Tuesdey. Mrs.
Burwell gave an interesting talk
on conditions in Belgium.
#Xext Friday afternoon the pu
pils of the first primary and
second grades, will have some of
the work they have done this term
on exhibit. They will also give a J
May-pole dance.
The circular flower bed which
the freshmen made in their gar
den is certainly a work of art.
No more perfect circle could be
found except for one exception.
It is not round.
The Agricult ure class is progress
ing very rapidly in preparing
their garden. This is agood work
but we fear its results on the com
plexions of both the teachers and
pupils. This one unpleasant re
sult of gardening might be easily
overcome were it not that the
value of flour is increasing.
The entertainment given by the
Wesleyan quartet last Thursday
was well attended. It is impos
sible to do justice to them bv de
scription so we will only say it was
fine. The juniors are well pleased
with the high class entertainment
which they were instrumental in
bringing to Loup City. Their
part of the proceeds will be used
for the benefit of the junior class,
and we hope the part received by
Mr. Burwell will also be used in a
good cause. The juniors report
Mr. Burwell to be a most excellent
but rather inactive partner.
Farmers and Mule Breeders.
The breeding of mules for farm
use has been neglected in this sec
tion for years. As a work animal
it is conceded that the mule has no
equal. Harry Obermiller, who
lives just south of Schaupps, and
who is an old-time and experienced
mule breeder, announces that he j
will offer for service this season.
Prince Albert, a magnificent black
Spanish .Tack. He is a big fellow:
is 16 hands high and weighs 1,050
pounds. He is a jack of fine ac
tion and has a record as a foal
getter. The service fee is §10, and
he will make the season at Mr.
Obermiller’s farm, a quarter of a
mile south of Schaupps. M r. Ober
miller announces that he will make
a specialty of breeding so-called
barren mares.
There will be no services at the
St. Paul German church until Sun
day, May 23rd. No choir practice

An Interview With
Mr. Ford
The following interview was given by Mr.
Ford to one of the aggressive Ford ageuts, who
returned to hisjiome and gave it to his terri
tory in the following newspaper advertisement:
This is the Most Important Advertisement I
Ever Caused to be Published.—Read
Every Word—and then Marvel!
On a personal visit to Mr. Henry Ford I
broached the subject of a possible Au
gust 1st Rebate.
(Tin* Ford Company announced last year—as you well remember—
that if their total sales reached 30X000 cars between August 1.
and August l. I0ir». each purchaser during that period would receive
back a refund of 240.00 to 2t50.<«0.)
“Mr. Ford,” 1 suggested, “Is there anything 1 can
say to our people with regard to the Ford Motor Com
pany’s car rebate plan?”
“We shall sell the 300,000,” was the quiet reply- ••and
in 11 months ahead of August 1st!”
“Then a refund is practically assured?”
Yes—barring the totally unexpected. We are 50,000
to 75,000 cars behind orders today. Factory and branches
are sending out 1800 daily.”
1 then said to Mr. Ford: “If 1 could make a definite
refund statement we would increase our local saiesoOO
; cars.”
"You may shy was Mr. Ford’s deliberate and signifi
cant reply to this—‘‘You may say that we shall payback
to each purchaser of a Ford car between August 1, 1914
and August /, 1915, barring the unforseen, the sum of
$50. You may say that I authorized you to make this
What can I add to the above? $15,000,000 in cash
coming back to Ford owners! And to prospective
Fqrd owners up to August 1, 1915, it actually means —
Ford Touring cars for 9490.00—less the $50.00 rebate!
Ford Runabouts for $440.00—less the $50.00 rebate!
What is there left for me to say?
