REVENUE BILL CONDEMNED.
(Washington Special Correspondence)
Debate on the democratic revenue
bill in the House, gave opportunity for
wide range of discussion of the poli
cies of the democratic administration
in the matter of revenue. Numerous
members of the House cited statis
tics demonstrating the disastrous ef
feet of the tariff law of 1913, which
threw American producers into keen
competition with the cheap labor of
Europe and Asia. The following are
brief excerpts from some of the ad
Representative Martin B. Madden,
of Illinois,: “You democrats have for
feited your right to the people’s con
fidence. You have not reduced the
cost of living as you promised to do
when you were appealing for votes
in 1912. On the contrary, you hate
opened the ports of America to the
free entry of the products of the
world, while the cost of living has con
tinually gone up.
“You have refused to economize in
the conduct of the government’s busi
“You have given no protection to
the lives and property of American
citizens in foreign lands.
“You have proved your unfitness
“You have been brazen in your de
termination to levy tribute in the
form of taxation upon business en
“You are taking away from the
States the revenue which belongs to
them by th« application of the prin
ciple involved in the inheritance-tax
section of this bill.
“You have levied taxes on the cor
poration without limit in the belief
that they are all gold mines. You be
lieve that every form of corporate en
terprise is a menace to the life of the
Nation. You do not understand the
business needs of the American peo
ple. You are not familiar with the
industrial side of American life. You
are not qualified to run a great busi
ness enterprise like the government
of the United States.”
Representative F. W. Mondell, of
Wyoming, speaking of the duty on
dyestuffs: “We welcome this tardy
democratic recognition of the virtue
of republican policies, but we decline
to desert the altars of the true faith
to participate in the acts and incan
tations of those, who, though unabie
to longer entirely resist the penetrat
ing power of truth they have long
spurned and denied, still in the main
adhere to their idols of free trade and
their fetishes of burdensome direct
“Even as the ancient Israelites iti
the very shadow of the mountain of
the law set up an altar to the worship
of the golden calf, so democrats in
this day of their proclaimed enlighten
ment as to the wisdom of republican
principles of protection still set up
their altars to end worship their dis
credited idols of free trade and of
direct and burdensome taxation upon
the people and their industries.”
Representative P. P. Campbell, of
Kansas: “I prefer to make foreign
nations pay for the privileges of sell
ing their products in our market
rather than let them sell their pro
ducts here free of tax, and then tax
our own people to make up the neces
sary revenues to pay the expenses of
Representative E. J. Hill, of Con
necticut: “This bill marks the inau
guration of the English free-trade sys
tern here at the very time when Eng
land's fearful struggle to preserve her
life compels its abandonment there
and forces her into a commercial
union with her allies for the adoption
of a policy of protection and prefer
ential trade among themselves when
peace shall have been restored. The
system of protection and national in
dustrial independence which llismark
taught to Germany, which France has
practicing for many years, and which
Britain has now accepted is thrown
into the discard by the democratic
party of the United States under the
leadership of Woodrow Wilson.
The Northwestern this week begins
a series of advertisements for the Ne
braska Prosperity League, the saloon
organization of the state. Some of
our readers may think that a paper
should not accept this class of adver
tising, and suppose that we are
allied with the saloon element in some
way. Such is not the case, however,
as we regard the same as a pu-ely
business proposition, the same as a
merchant with his stock of goods. A
newspaper's stock of goods is its ad
vertising space and if it is not sold
a paper could not long continue in
business. Our columns are as open
to the anti-saloon league as to the
saloon element—at the same advertis
ing rates. We want to give all the
same chance to present arguments
for and against the saloon, and it ap
pears that there are many on both
sides. As far as we are personally
concerned, the arguments are imma
terial to us and o|hr readers can
look the ads over and form their own
opinions. We have no suggestions
to make nor any apologies to make
for accepting this contract.
Jerseyville, (111.) Republican—Mr.
Hughes is just as peace loving as is
President Wilson and will preserve
peace just as long as he can without
forfeiting the national honor of the
United States. It is certain, however,
that Mr. Hughes will settle definitely
upon program with regard to Mexico
and the European powers and when he
speaks it will be final. There will be
no invasion of Mexico with a small
force, slaughter of a few brave Ameri
can soldiers, calling out 100.000 na
tional guardsmen and a final backing
up with nothing accomplished except
a temporary peace.
Intimation is the sincerest flattery.
The Democrats are to have a special
committee to attend to the senatorial
contests of this year. This is wholly
in line with the other adaptations
they have been making, in the revenue
bill and elsewhere, of good republi
can notions. Yet Woodrow Wilson
once said that the republicans hadn't
had an idea in thirty years. Never
theless, all this purloining of republi
can ideas will not avail this year.
This is the year when the country de
mands the real, not the spurious.
At the last count there were 53,941
National guardsmen on he border. Of
these New York furnished 17,125 and
Pennsylvania provided 12,779. New
York and Pennsylvania also hold a
top notch place among the States
which pay the income tax. The demo
cratic theory is that rich States shall

The people of Nebraska are being urged this year to adopt state
wide PROHIBITION, and to wipe out the Slocum Local Option,
High License Law.
Naturally, the average man wants to know what results have been
achieved in states where PROHIBITION has been tried. He wants
to know first of all whether state-wide PROHIBITION prohibits.
The practical man also wants to know what results have been
achieved in Nebraska under the Local-option, High License System
We intend to publish a series of articles with a view of lay
ing certain vital facts before the people of this state, faets
which they should possess in order that they may be able
to make an intelligent decision.
The citizens of Nebraska want an opportunity to hear both sides
of the question. They have little patience with the extremists, of
whom there are some on both sides. They want to hear in plain
language why so many men of standing are opposed to state-wide
We will present evidence in abundance to show that
state-wide PROHIBITION does not prohibit; that serious
new evils follow in the wake of PROHIBITION, evils *
far worse and more numerous than those for which
PROHIBITION is offered as a remedy.
Kansas tried for many years to make state-wide PROHIBITION prohibit,
and has failed. The news item presented herewith is eloquent testimony
to that fact.

Showing that PROHIBITION does not prohibit. >

“Liquor is being sold to high school boys by bottom char
acters,” according to Ed. Rooney, probation officer. * * * *
"17. E. Atchison, county attorney, yesterday afternoon
ordered a warrant drawn for the arrest of the negro who is said
to have sold liquor to Reuben Niedens and Johnnie Barret, the
two boys who took Mrs. Ida Brownell’s Ford from in front of
her residence, 205 Madison, and began a mad career of window
smashing that ended in .heir arrest. Niedens is 17, Barrett 14.
The boys gave information to Atchison about purchasing the
liquor. The warrant will be served this morning.”

MUST NOT OPERATE CARS.
The practice of letting youngsters
under sixteen years of age operate
motor cars, which prevails all over
the state, has caused Secretary Pool
to call the attention of automobile
owners to the law covering this mat
ter which reads as following:
Section 195. It shall be unlawful
for any person under 16 years of age,
or for any intoxicated person to op
erate a motor vehicle, and any Owner,
dealer or manufacturer of motor ve
hicles who permits a person finder 16
years of age or an intoxicated person
to operate a motor vehicle, shall be
guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be
punished as hereinafter provided for
violation of the provisions of this
Section 199 provides a fine of not
exceeding $50 for the first offense and
for a second offense a fine of not less
than $50 nor more than a $100 or Im
prisonment not exceeding sixty days
in the county jail.
