"Business men all over tl e
eotmtry are expressing complete
confidence in the Democratic
House. They are not being fool
ed by ttie old bugaboo about 'Dem
ocratic Success meaning business
depression. ' I am familiar with
how the Democratic leaders feel
about this , and the leaders and the
majority of the party are conserv
ative. The tariff will be revised
downward- it will be done con
servatively , and without disturb
ing business conditions unneces
sarily. Democrats realize that
business men have rights which
must be protected. " This state
ment by Congressman John LL
Rothermel. of Pennsylvania , chair
man of the committie on expend
itures in the department of Com
merce and labor , is endorsed b.v
all the Democrats in Congress
Mr. Rothermel's home is in Rt ad-
ing , Pennsylvania , which is in thr
heart of the Pennsylvania manu
Evidence is multiplying that
btfstness men do not fear Demo-
crjfti.c success in 191SJ , and that.
on" ttie contrary , they will wo !
cotrie. it. This is due almost
wholly , the House leaders say , to
the businesslike way in which the
Democrats have handled affairs
lin e they were 'placed in control
of.jtha lower house of Congress
& year ago. The steel trust , which
would have more reason than any
other trust to be suspicious of
Democratic , success , is thriving as

year , and the customary holiday

to two. , Early in January , it is
iaid , the steel -mills all over the
country will be working. up to 9u
per cent of capacity. Blast fur
naces long idle , have resumed
operations , and the steel corpora
tion confidently . expects 1912 to be
the banner year of its history.

Louis D. Brandies , the famous
Huston lawyer , who looks , sits ,
walks , and talks like Abraham
Lincoln , while testifying before
the Senate trust investigating com
mittee , showed how the trusts re
ceiving -the greatest protection
have destroyed trades unionism" ,
reduced wages , increased working
hours , and driven Americans out
and brought foruigu immigrant la
bor into their mills.
He exposed the injustice and fu
tility of the Tobacco Trust settlement -
ment , effected by the United States
Supreme Court , and said the rule
laid down amounted to this :
"What man has illegally joinrc
together , let 110 court put asun-
In contrast with the record of
the tariff protected trusts , Mr.
Brandies presented instances
where prices have been reduced ,
and wages raisetl , in industries
operated under free competition.

Geo. A. Miles was awarded a
verdict in the district court of
Holt county atQ'Neill for $2173.57
for printing the Scavenger tax list
in July 1905 and the subsequent
tax sale in October of that year
both of which thfe county commis
sioners of that county refused to
pay Mr. Miles who obtained a
judgement against the county of
the full legal rate in 1906 but
\Vhelan and Dixon , attorneys for
the county curried the case to the
supreme court and there it was de

"If I could onlj\buy'a coir and eave the
cost of cream
And shoo the noisy milkman off 'twould
bo a happy dream. "
That's \vhat 1 told myself one day. I said :
"Why , can't you see ,
We'd have fresh milk ami butter , too ,
anil whey from microbes free.
We'd have our homemade buttermilk with
out a cent oC cost
Except a trifling sum for feed , and that
would not be lost. "
I said that over to myself until I made a

And so one day I found a man who of
fered one for sale.
She had a pale clue gleaming eye ; she had
no horns or tail.
He charged me ninety plunks for her and
' swore I had a snap.
But when I tried to milk the brute she sat
down in my lap.
And then I gave the neighbor's boy a
quarter every day
To coax a pint of milk from her. I bought
a ton of hay. \
Besides I fed her bran and straw and
built a coldproof shed.
bought some other luxuries and saw that
she was fed.
"Why dwell upon the piteous tale ? YThen.
six months after that ,
I figured on the rest of cream and whey
and butter fat
1 found each pfnt of so called milk had
cost a dollar ten
In feed and cow and shed and boy and
clothes and work and men.
And so in anger and in pain I killed the
cow one day
And sold her to the butcher for whatever
he would pay.
And then I bought her back again in lit
tle bits , of course.
The second time I paid for her at prices
then In force.
I found that dead cows cost a. lot , much
more than when alive ,
Like murderers and skunks and things. I
nevermore will strive
To beat the cost of living thing. I think
I've had enough. .
I lack the nerve and foolishness to try to
' call its bluff.
