TARIFF-MADE MTXjIJOJf AIRES
Mr. If. E. Ingalls, former presi
dent of tho Big Four railroad sys
tem, could not hare chosen a better
place than Boston to make the state
ment: "I am not In favor, of tax
ing for destruction, hut the question
is whether we have not too many
millionaires for the good of the re
public. I believe that one of the
greatest causes of the production of
large and illegal fortunes is the
Boston, for some time now the
center of strife between the tariff
revisionists and the "standpatters,"
should have no difficulty Jn seeing
tho truth of Mr. Ingalls' assertion.
It long has been plain to the people
of the west that the tariff has out
lived its original purpose be that
good or bad and that for at least
two congresses it has been making
millionaires at the expense of the
consumers of the whole country.
The "infant industries" that tho
tariff was intended to nourish until
they could stand and walk unaided
have grown to be industrial giants;
yet they are still feeding on tariff
pap, furnished mainly by the. people
of the United States.
There is a rapidly spreading p ablic
sentiment that it would bo vastly ad
vantageous to the nation if we had
fewer tariff-made millionaire, and
freer access to the world's markets.
The American consumer has grown
tired of high prices, due to a protec
tive schedule that even its father,

In the so-called "Buffalo -platform,"
declared to be no lon'ger needed to
maintain the country's prosperity.
"Stand pat" means stand still. The
American people favor progress. And
the time is close at hand when the
only "standpatter" in the land will
be the tariff-made millionaire. The

There's only one kind of Artificial Ex

So, if you want the same natural action

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN?
If John Temple Graves wishes to
know just what would happen if Mr.
Bryan were to take his advice and
nominate Mr. Roosevelt as candidate
of "all the people," he can find the'
information in tho history of the de
cline and fall of the federalist party
in this country. Such an action as
he advises would mean nothing less
than the declaration that the demo
cratic party has no longer any rea
son for its existence.
In describing the "Era of Good
Feeling" in Monroe's time, when the
federalists and democrats (then
called republicans) were not easily
distinguishable, because of the efforts
of the federalists to associate with
their former opponents, Judge Ran
som H. Gillet, in. his Democrat,
"Their fate was sealed. A dis
avowal of their principles and a
change of name were necessary to
future success. This was readily
done at no distant day. It was our
godd fortune to hear the eloquent
Elisha Williams in the last year of
his life pass an affectionate eulogy
upon the extinct party and its prin
ciples, and feelingly denounce those
who had once been proud of them
for an ignominious desertion of them,
leaving him alone in his old age, as
the sole representative of both, who
had the courage and manliness to
openly avow them. The federalists
have never assumed their former
There is the verdict. Hopeless of
political success or ashamed of, their
party, the federalists turned to their
opponents' chief and hailed him as

HONOR AND JUSTICE
A judge in New York recently 'en
deavored to let off without punish
ment a man convicted of robbery, al
though the prisoner had been found
guilty several times before. The
reason for the judges sympathy was
'that a Tammany district leader had
steppedvinto court at the psychologi
cal moment and made known his
wishes to the gentleman who occu
pied the sacred seat of judgment.
Take a long stride, now, muse, aad
descend upon flourishing city near
where the rnudd Missouri adds its
waters to its mighty brother, where
upon together, as Father of Waters,
they continue their majestic progress
to the Gulf. St. Louis has not yet
ceased to blush, with shame and dis
appointment, since, a few weeks
gone, Thoodoro Roosevelt, faithful
republican, with .eager oyo to retain
ing Missouri for the sacred party,
appointed to tho federal bench a law
yer whose greatest reputation is for
the non-payment of his debts. Too
old for a judicial appointment, with
no logal standing that could suggest
such elovatlon, this unfortunate
needed tho place; Senator Warner
recommended him; tho president,
ovor ready to make political chess
mon of tho judiciary, took one more
stop to increase tho number of un
worthy judges In Amorlca. When
Mr. Rooaovolt's place in history Is
finally recorded, no glory will be
added by tho chapters which shall
narrate tho ruthless consistency
with which ho played his party gume
to the groator degradation of a
bench, his respect for which is Ben
jamin Harrison's worthiest memo
