    The Commoner.
Ko one will deny that John D. Rocfce
fallcr alway ha aa eye upon the
future. When he wa a young man
the future meant something entirely
different from what it means to him
norr, when he Is verging upon the
iscrl plural three score and ten. That
he agrees with tne Psalmist is shovn
by the following prayer, which he de
livered up at the Euclid Avenue Bap
tist church, Cleveland, last Friday
"We bless Thee for the encourage
ment we have in the privilege of com
ing to worship Thee. We know the
manifestation of Thy love toward us,
but often forget Thee. We are sinful,
but we pray that Thou wilt reacn out
and draw us back as Thou hast al
ways done. May all who seek knowl
edge receive it. Make us stronger,
make us charitable toward one an
other, and above all, give us patience."
John certainly has "material" mani
festations of love in plenty. So many,
in fact, that it is quite -inexcusable in
him to 'forget."
That he is "sinful" many, including
Dr. Gladden, Miss Tarbcll and Tom
Lawson, will admit. Even his bitter
enemies must admire his confidence
in the Supreme Goodness, as well as
his frankness in bearing testimony to
the facl that he lias been "drawn back"
on several distinct and, it is to be sup
ppsed, important occasions. There
are those who would no't hestitate to
wager that when John has "drawn
Wick" he took "the goods" with him.
" That touch about seeking knowl
edge is really very fine, especially
when considered In connection with
Mr. Rockefeller's well-known willing
ncs to be interviewed on subjects in
timately related to his business affairs,
In which the dear public has a deep,
but not particularly profitable, interest.

And then his petition, "make us
stronger." Isn't that touching? Some
callous people, recalling the size of
John's bank account and other very
substantial things, will jeer and say,
with a manner almost brutal, that he
is too strong already and that, for the
general welfare, he should be given a
course of treatment.
Nobody will object to John's growth
in charity toward his fellow creatures,
especially to the widows ana orpnans
of those who stood in his way when
he was developing the Standard Oil
monster. Charity, indeed! Did some
body say "humbug?
"Patience." To be sure, "give us
patience" to bear with men who pray
like Rockefeller and practice like the
well, never mind who. The poor have
patience to spare. They need it in
their business the business of try
ing to remain alive under the condi
tions created by frauds of the pious
kind and other kinds. -Providence
(Rhode Island) Telegram.
The reciprocity contention shows a
tendency to discard the word "reci
procity" as misleading. "High and
low tariff" is suggested as a watch
word: more briefly, the "dual tariff."
The "dual tariff" is precisely that
plan which Germany under the name
of "maximum and minimum tariff," is
turning against us. Other continental
nations will presently adopt it. The
Chamberlainites in England powerful
ly advocate It In their "colonial pref
erence." A high tariff as a club to beat trade
enemies combined with a lower tariff
as a lure for trade friends may not be
an ideal arrangement. But it is bet
ter far than the very heavy club we
carry now to beat off foreign trade
from every quarter indiscriminately.
