It is important enough, however, in
the opinion of Mr. Chamberlain, to
prevent tho two loaders from working
in harmony together, and lienco tho
colonial secretary retires. On one
point both Balfour and Chamberlain
are agreed. They believe tho British
people are not yet prepared to tax im
ports of food products. Moreover,
they think that a campaign of educa
cation will be necessary to win them
to the taxation side, even If they can
be won at all.
In any case, the matter will have to
go to the British electorate for a de
cision, and this will bring up tin-whole
question of protection and free trade
in a more direct way than at any time
since the free-trade basis was readied,
over half u century ago. Tho election
will havo a great interest for the
people of tho United States, as well as
for tho other countries. The adoption
of a policy of protection would iujuro
American exportation into England
for a tlmo at least. Tho fact, howovor,
that it would tnako food dearer in
England will be a strong argument
against both the Balfour and Chamber
lain plans. This is a point which ill
be urged with grout force by tho Li
beral party, which in general, will tako
ground against the adoption of pro

Our National Air.
Tin- order of the secretary of the
navy has established in that depart
ment nt the govermeiit as our national
ah, the "Star Spangled Banner."
Some people are aggrieved because it
supersedes "America", which because
of its better adaptation to the scale of
tho ordinary voice, is sung ofteuer
than any other of our patriotic songs.
But as America is identical with the
liritish national air, it is embarrassing
to the sailor men when participating
in an international fete, where the
representatives of each nation present
aro expected to render their national
airs. For an American and a British
delegation to repeat each others'
strains is not Mattering to our national
pilde. While only accomplished
oculists can sing the Star Spangled
i j. nuer wmi mo nesi eueci, li is
w udcrfully inspiring when rendered
in triimoiitally, inferior to none of the
n itiiiuul airs of the period, not even to
the Marseillaise. Some criti ssnythat

sition. Neither is "God Save the King"
an original English composition.
Most of the immortal song composi
tions come from the sunny south, in
Italy or France, the original fount of
most popular music. Even "Yankee'
Doodle" has been traced to tho remot
est antiquity. "A Hot Time" may be
among those airs indigenous to this
country, but ragtime is not considered
quite stately enough for national airs.
The adoption of the Star Spangled
Banner by the navy, always to be sung
or played as our national air, will
doubtless give it universal precedence
and stamp it as the American song
just as tho "Marsellaiso" Is French,
and the "Wacht am Hhein" tho Ger

YOUR BETTER HALF
Should you be fortunate enough to have a better half,
will want you to wear a stylish new Suit for fall. SHE'S
RIGHT, She takes pride in your appearance. She knows
that the chances for success are in favor of the well dressed
man, and on Sunday when you go to church with her, or
you go out to spend the evening, she wants you to look as
good as any other woman's husband. Now, the matter ot
expense need not stand in the way. We can fix you up with
a stylish, up-to-date, serviceable outfit for a very small
amount, say Sio, and from that on up to $25 or $30, or as
high as you want to go. Our stock is large enough and our
prices small enough that you can find what you want at the
price you want to pay. We'll be glad to give you visible
proof of this if you'll come in. New fall goods arriving daily.
