The Chicago. Hurllngton eV Qtilnry rail
road Is building a new rouml house on the
site of the old structure, which was con
sumed by fire early In the autumn of last
The new building la to be 90x100 feet and
of the height of two stories. The material
to be used Is brick and concrete, thus mak
ing a fireproof building. This round houso
will accommodate twenty or more engines
and promises to be one of the most sightly
buildings of Its kind In the South Omaha
yards. It will be completed at on early
date as the need for It Is Imperative. The
cost of the new structure complete Is esti

The cost of this depot will probably be am
much as $10,000. It Is a structure, which
has long been deolred fttid It would doubt
less have been constructed had there been
any street car connection with the centers
of Omaha and South Omaha.

Some Things You Want to Know
The English Elections The Tariff Reform Issue.
The phrase "tariff reform-' In English
politics means exactly the opposite of what
it means In the I'nlted States. In England
tne "tariff reformers" are those who pro
pose to establish protection as the guiding
principal of the British customs system
Instead of free trade. The principle of
free trade, for which the Anti-Corn Laws
league, under the leadership of Cobden and
Bright, made such a memorable fight has
been accepted for many decades as the
settled policy of the United Kingdom. In
Amerloa the "tariff reformers" are those
who believe In a reduction Of the tariff
duties from a protective principle to a
merely revenue scale, or to free trade; al
though they have been almost entirely
swallowed up by the "tariff revisionists,"
who believe In a reduction of the tariff
duties, but In maintaining the protective
Customs duties In Engtand are laid on
spirits, tobacco, sugar, tea and other, non
cc'mpntlrig articles. It Is the nearest ap
proach to free trade existing In any great
nation. The first note of dissatisfaction,
with the system was sounded In Birmlng-hem-
about seven or eight years ago, and
In 1908 Mr. Joseph Chamberlain organ
ised the Tariff Reform league. This or
ganization, working Independently of party
because neither conservatives nor liberals
would have anything to do with It, has
succeeded in creating a great public senti
ment In favor it protection. The result of
the present election cannot properly be con
strued to be the verdict of the people on
this question, since so many other Issues
were Involved. But It Is not to be dis
puted that Mr. Chamberlain and his Tariff
Reform league were successful in forcing
the conservative party to adopt tariff re
form as Its .-.Met slogan In the battle
against the budget
"Hat'ds off ;he people's food!" "Tax
land, not loaves!" These and similar cries
from the radicals were met by tory argu
ments: "Tax the foreigner!" "Tariff re
form means bett?r times!" "Protection
means higher wages and more work!"
Everywhere and all the time during the
campaign the tariff was a live question.
When the liberal .speakers denounced the
House of Lords, almost the only hostile
remarks from the audience would he from
some enthUHlaitic believer In protection.
It Is not the Intention to discuss In this
article the relative merits of tariff reform
and free trade In England, but the Ameri
can onlooker could not fall to be amued
by the campaign conducted for and against
protection. It was like a moving picture
review of all that has been said and done
about the tariff In America from the time
of the Walker tariff to the day of the
1 he tariff reformers, which means
practically all of the conservatives, ad
vanced two reasons and one excuse for
their new faith In protection. They de
clared It necessary to protect British man
ufacturers from the competition of
products of cheap factories and poorly paid
labor of other countries; they declared It
the part of wisdom to tax the foreigner
Instead of the Englishman; and they said
It was a substitute for the land tuxes and
other objectionable features of the budget.
In-. support of these doctrines, with amus
ing Inconsistency, but not without dis
tinguished precedent, they appealed to the
voters by speeches, by posters, by leaflets,
and by songs, to support the conservatives
because the liberal government had taxed
tobacco and beer. '
The liberals. In opposing the protective
idea, made the most of the proposed taxes
on breadstuff, and devoted most of their
argument to the cost of bread. "Tax land,
not loaves," was tha burden of their song.
"Tariff reform will make happier dukes,"
screamed the posters, developing the
charge that the dukes, objecting to the tax
on their lands, wanted protection in order
to put the tax on the poor man's loaf. The
liberals shouted that England had grown
to be the greatest manufacturing nation
and the richest nation on earth under free
trade, and then, with that delightful In
consistency which seems to attend both
sides of a tariff fight, they declared that
England was already ground Into poverty
by the landlords and could not afford to
bear another penny of taxation.
The liberal speakers could Justify their
demand for relief of the poor, and main
tain that English laborers were the best
paid In the world, all in the same speech,
without any apparent effort. The conser
vative speakers, equally resourceful, found
no difficulty whatever In explaining that
a tariff duty on wheat could, no.t possibly
Increase the price of bread, since the tax
Is paid by the foreigner, and In the same
speech denouncing the government for in
creasing the cost of the poor man's tobacco
by the Imposition of a higher customs duty.
The United States and Germany, as the
two greatest high protective tariff coun
tries, were used freely by both parties to
prove every side of every qustlon. The
conserva'lves said protection would mean
high wagee and plenty of Jobs, in support
of which statement they referred to the
working men In the United States, always
with work to do and always getting fabu
lously high wages. JThe liberals retorted
with the statement that the cost of living
was so high In America that the differ
ence In wages was really In favor of the
British workmin and denying that the
Americans always had Jobs. Some of
them went far enough to say that there
were is many unemployed tn the United
States as in England. To this the con
servatives replied (hat the farms of the
south and west. In America always needed
laborers; thereby bringing down upon
their heads the wra hy demands of the lib
erals that the land In England be opened
to opportunity for tmall farmers.
At the close of the campaign the whole
Issue seemed to be .centered In the great
black bread question. The liberal speakers
md pres charged that prototlon would
mean black br:ad and hors'f!eh for the
working man, as la eaten in protected
Germany.- Ignoring th horseflesh, the jw
tire conservative csmpaian took up cudgels
In defrnse of black bread.. A grocer, "by
special appointment to his. majesty, the
king," testified that , the king ate black
rye bread. The conservative papers all
said that what was good enough f3r the
king was good enough for the likes of
Lloyd-George, and that that ought to settle
It But the radicals' kept up the outcry
against black- bread and apparently the
entire English .public cantered all Its
thought on. the relative merits of wheat
and rye bread. -
A feature of the tariff reform campaign
was the opening of "dumping shops" In
various cities all over the country. An
empty store room would be hired and its
windows filled with all sorts of imported
manufactured goods, all of which came
Into England free of duty. The public was
Invited, by placard, to estimate how much
British workmen got for making these
American shoes or these German cooking
utensils, or this French fabrlo, and the
like. The argument was clinched by pla
cards showing how many Jobs would be
given to British workmen at so much
wages if all these things were kept out by
a protect've tariff.
These "dumping shops" made a power
ful appeal to the people, and they set the
other side wild wl'.h anger and despair.
There has been a long campaign of ad
vertising In England In favor of British
made goods, and it has had a profound
effect Everywhere one sees appeals for
patronage on the patriotic ground of sup
porting home industries and employing
home labor. The "dumping shops" took
advantage of this sentiment
In Llecester the liberals played a sharp
trick on the terles. They rented the upper
story of the "dumping shop" and covered
I', over with placards which explained Ihe
exhibits In the window below to be a
powerful argument in' favor of free trade.
The voter might stand outside, see the
foreign goods and then by the two sets
of placards reach the conclusion that tariff
reform would either 'save or wreck the
In London one "dumping shop" displayed
a chair marked with a card "Made in U.
S. A." It developed that the chair was
of (a particular sort made only In a fac
tory in the immediate' neighborhood. Work
men from the chair .factory Identified the
chair and forced ' the t tariff reformers to

epute. ' ' 3 ' ; ,-
Almost every Englishman who has been
In the. United Sta"tesr,baa written a card
to the newspapers, sometime during this
campaign, for the purpose of comparing
prices in ..the two countries. They were
about equally divided in opinion as to
which country has the higher prices. One
letter writer said that' he had lived in the
United States with his family for seven
teen years, and that while he always hod
his clothes made, in England because he
liked the fit his old London ' tailor gave
him, yet he had bought a suit of olothes
In Atlanta for $9.76 which waa perfectly
good. He did not give the Atlanta tailor's
name and address.
Of course each side has accused the
other of all shades and degrees of dema
(ogy, perhaps not without reason. The
liberals used hundreds' of thousands ef a
leaflet which ' read, after giving statistics
from various countries: "Protection means
less wages for a longer day's work." And
the conservatives counted as a trump card
their leaflet which bore the legend:
"Dearer baccy, dearer bread, dearer liv
ing, dearer dead, dearer whisky, beer and
gin. Is what you get when the Rads are
in. "Vote for tariff reform. The for
eigner pays the tax."
Tariff campaigns appear to be conducted
on the some general 11r.es in all countries.

The president also spoke In favor of the

abroad for our representatives to foreign
countries. He asserted that while the coun

appear like a plutocracy for It to send

men of marked ability but limited means
could not afford to accept the positions.

Harry Leaner Troupe nt the Andt
torlum. Omaha got a taste last night of the Wil
liam Morris brand of vaudeville, and
rather liked it. It Is hardly likely that
Mr. Morris will serve us regularly with
an "all star" bill, suoh as this, but If he
will only approach It, his advent to the city
will be welcomed,
Harry Lauder was naturally the main
Incident of last night's entertainment, but
by no means was he all of It. Four other
acts were presented, each enjoyable In Its
way and each getting hearty applause.
First of these was Cyrano, the Juggler.
He works fast and clean, and In handling
balla shows himself very expert. M ile.
Bertha Is a violinist of excellent accom
plishments, and well deserved the encore
to which she responded. Julian Eltlnge Is
lonely In his eminence as a female imper
sonator, so far ahead Is he of all others
in his Une. His contribution to the even
ing was a real delight.. The Marimba band
is offered perhaps as a novelty. It serves
to show what takes tha place of music
among the Guatemalans, from among
whom the orgonlsaUon is recruited. On an
instrument, which seemed to be a oross
between a xylophone and a dulclrtier. four
nimble players performed a number of
pieces that served to exhibit the possibili
ties of the Instrument, and at least proved
the patience of the quartet In rehearsals
Then eame Lauder, a genius for fun. . He
simply presents some Scotch types In a
humorous way, but it is a kindly, whole
some humor, with no element of alowning
In It, and no taste of bitterness. Beginning
with his song of MaNab's wedding, and
ending with "I Love a Lassie," he spends
the greater part of an hour on tha stage,
cleverly maintaining his pose and achiev
ing results as an entertainer no other has
as yet attained. And when he said good
bye, It was with a promise that he'd come
again, and that "we'll meet again, some
Ither nlcht, for auld lang yne."
The audience last night was large, more
numerous than any of the Omaha theaters
could well aocommodate, and It was warm
enough to bestow most liberal applause
on eaoh of the performers, and especially
on Mr. Lauder. y
