After Senator Beveridge's three days' speech hi the senate , in which he tried to prove'thatwoman and child labor could be controlled nationally under the interstate commerce clause of the constitution , the judiciary committee of the house of representatives sits down on the project by saying : "It is not extreme or ridiculous to say that it would be just as logical and correct to argue that congress can reg ulate the age , color , sex , manner of dress , height and size of employees and fix their hours as to contend that congress can exercise jurisdiction over the subject of woman and child labor. The agitation of such legislation pro duces an uneasy feeling among the people and confus.es the average mind as to the power of congress and the power of the state. " It may be pr5' " : that these Democratic and Republican statesmen , most of them very able lawyers , were unani mous in snubbing Beveridge , whose verbosity is only exceeded by his ego tism.

Some cases were passed , or continued to next term of court , some dismissed. Three gambling cases were tried and defendants acquitted , a fourth was dismissed because the evidence was similar and with present available jury men it was impossible to convict no matter what evidence. Judge Westover severely reprimanded the juries in these three cases for disregarding their * oaths and the evidence , stating that many a man had been hung on less evidence than was produced in these cases and said such juries were a dis grace to the county and the com munity. Five jurors : Mat Boltz , Fred Johnson , John Adamson , Geo. Hunter and Al Thacker were called before the judge last Friday and fined § 5 "each and costs for contempt of court in disregarding the court's instructions. W. F. A. Meltendorif was also cited to appear before the court and fined $50 and costs for furnishing beer for the above named jurors. Ed Pike was given a verdict in the replevin of a black mare from Joseph Thompson and awarded 6c damages , which throws the costs onto the defendants about § 100. Peter and Wm. Detgen were allowed to plead guilty to a mis demeanor in the in the case of shooting G. W. Burge's cattle and were given 30 days in jail and a fine of § 10 each and costs. Dave-Archer was found guilty of shooting with intent to do great bodily harm on the person of Louis Bock and was sentenced to one year in the penitentiary.

Continuation of Trust High Prices end Increased Cost of Living to Be Pondered Over. Tlie foundation of the doctrine of protection is to monopolize the home market by raising a tariff wall that the foreigner cannot climb over. On the other hand , the protectionists are very desirous of getting their surplus prod ucts over the tariff Avail of the foreign , er , and to do this they sell cheaper abroad tlum here. Germany , France , Canada and some other countries have lately built up their tariff wall con siderably higher , for the purpose of either compelling us to lower our tariff Avail or to reciprocate with them by so reducing the present rates of tariff duties that certain products can be ad mitted Avhich both countries are anx ious to obtain. This tariff war has been in progress for many years and Avas a matter oil concern in 11)01 ) , Avhen President Me- Kinley said at Buffalo that "If we Avill not buy AVO cannot sell. " That tru ism throAV the stand patters into a panic Avhich it took them some time to recover from and has kept them busy explaining ever since. There Avas nothing/iew about it , but to think that McKinfey , the high priest of protection , should openly avow it Avas a thunder clap in a clear sky to the protected mo nopolists and to the politicians Avho do their bidding. But the protected interests have'not hung together since that time and still persevere in their staudpatism and under the protecting aegis of the Re publican leaders have successfully con tended for continuation of their mo nopoly. When the apostasy of McKinley - ley Avas likely to be imitated by Pres ident Roosevelt , there Avas a genera ; chorus of alarm , and all the influence of the monopolists was brought to bear against tariff reform. Reliable wit nesses declare that the president said he favowl tariff revision , but under the extreme pressure of the monopo lists and the leading Republican poli ticians he declared Avith an oath , as St. Peter did Avhen charged Avith being "one of them , " that he knew not the man and had made no such do-Jar * , tions. A smile of delighted surorise overspread the ctfsehardened features of monopolists and politicians alike when they found the president had backed water , for they Avero much afraid that Roosevelt Avould follow what McKinley intended to do if he had lived to the end of his term. The fact Avas that President Roosevelt was looking for a renoniination and did not dare to antagonize the strong protec tion sentiment in his own party , for there is no doubt that serious threats were made b.r the great protected in terests through their Ropubl'can po litical agents AVO : controlled congress. Since that time President Roosevelt has not bcn heard to utter a "peep" ' for tariff reform. Secretary Taft has declared for tariff revision , but was careful not to commit the administra tion , and Sec-rotary Root has just ad vanced the proposition of a maximum and minimum tariff AA'hich the monop olists declare they are quite ready to adopt if tae minimum rate" are high enough. "Tinier these- depressing condi tions the few Republican tariff revi sionists in congress have fa Peel in get ting fifty s-irncvs for a caucus to even consider Avhon the tariff revision scheme should be brought forward. All the talk that "tho tariff will be revised by its friends" is therefore superfluous , for it is evident that the stand pat element is firm enough in the saddle to prevent it. This victory of the monopolists postpones tariff re vision at least until after the next na tional election and until 1910 and prob ably longer unless the Democrats are successful. wh * n a special session of congress Avould be called soon after March 4. 1909. Those who foci tha pressure of the trust high prices and feel that the cost of living is unduly burdensome should reflect on IIOAV they are in the hands of the monopoly and stand pat Republican congress. - Ccngrceciona ! Wagss. Th : ; salary grab has been put through by congress , and the senators Avere honest enough to record their vote on the r.O ptM' cent increase. The members of the house of representatives IIOAV- OA'cr , doJIged a roll call , so as TO evade personal criticism and be able to say the other fellows did it. "not I. " As the cost of living has increased"over 50 per cent under the Republican system of piv/tectinpr the trusts , there of course must eA-ent"ally be a similar increase in all salaries , but members of congress showed their selfishness by adding oO per cent to their own allowances Avhile leaving the army and mu-y and Hie I government clerks and laborers at their r present rate. Avhich in many instances , is none too generous under the changed conditions from ten years ago. The , taxpayers \vlio pay the bills and whose | Incomes have not kept pace Avith the ( increase 1 cost of liv-ing , JsjJjll through | this salary grab have < still further _ cause to reflect adversely on Repub lican policies.

The proceedings in the Cherry county court during the last week were such as to disgust every moral , right-thinking individual in the country. In fact , many who make no pretension to Christianity or even temperance , in a literal sense , have expressed themselves as dumbfounded , horrified at the verdicts rendered by the juries in the three gambling prosecutions. With evidence enough piled up before them to convict our ad versary ( the devil ) himself , in the face of the most reasonable and just pleadings by the counsels for the state , in defiance of the law , in violation of their oath to render a just verdict according to the evi dence , men who sat as jurors , spent more time slurring W. C. T. U. women , and talking about things that had nothing to do with the case , than they did in weigh ing the evidence , and acquitted J. B. Hull , Geo. Hershey and W. F. A. Meltendorff , when the jurors , as well as the majority of the town people know they have been no torious for allowing gambling in their saloons , not even excluding minors , and by the evidence pro duced in these particular cases were guilty of the charges made against them. Such unjust , un reasonable , dastardly procedure must surely cause the better think ing class of yeople in Cherry county to believe the time has come to place in authority men who will work for the good of the town and county in justice , under the law. These -decisions called forth a reprimand from our Hon. Judge Westover that will not be easily forgotten. He said these decisions were a disgrace to every juror who sat on these cases , that many men had been hung on less evidence than was brought before them on each case , and that such verdicts were a disgrace to the county. After these three cases had been decided , complaint was brought against some of the jurors and W. F. A. Meltendorff for dis obeying the instructions of the court , in that Meltendorff treated the jury to beer before the verdict had been handed in to the Judge. The jurors who partook of the treat were fined § 5 and costs , and Meltendorff $50 and costs.
