"Back In Ohio we aro of the opinion

In dire distress for tha want of It," said
J. I, Kafter, an attorney frdm Cleveland
In Omaha. "Once for all a precedent
has been established showing that the

At a special meeting of the city council
last evening the appropriation ordinance
was put on reading. Prior to the meeting
the council and mayor discussed tho
proposition ot making a special appro
priation of 15.800 to cover overlaps in sev
eral of the funds. As contended by the
city attorney's office, the fire fund suf
fered a heavy overlap again this year.
It was proposed to use part of the Judge
ment money claimed by tho Water board.
Mayor Hootor claiming that the money
did not belong to the board until after a
court had so decided.
At the meeting the old qupatlon of using
back taxes came up and It wan decided
td use the back taxes to pay part of the
overlap. This, together with excess col
lections in the treasurer's office, will re
duce the special overlap appropriation to
If the policy ot UBlng the back taxes is
followed out It means that the council
will use the money to satisfy present
obligations Instead of putting the same
away for satisfying the InUrest and sink
ing fund. The policy ot using back taxes
to bolster up depleted funds simply means
that the burden of the Interest nnd sink
ing fund will be thrown upon the tax
payers and administrations of the future.
Atrnlt Jobs as Firemen.
There was very little of any business
at the meeting of the Fire and Police
board last night. Previous to the meet
ing Mayor Hoctor stated that practically
nothing but the consideration ot the Gust
Hcdgren license would come up. A great
many applicants for positions on the fire
department are waiting for their appoint
ments. Some of the applicant claim
they have been told to quit woik and get
ready for appointment to the "re depart
ment. It is understood that only five men
will be appointed nt first and that later
others will be added until tho double shift
has been fully recruited. The double shift
system begins August 1. In an interview
yesterday Commissioner Donahue stated
that the wages of the firemen could not
be reduced. He said he had heard Mayor
Hoctor speak of the matter, but that he
had looked Up the statutes and found that
the salaries of the men could not be re
duced Under the law.

(From a Staff Correspondent.) I
WASHINGTON, July .-(Special Tele-
gram.) In his maiden speech today Sen-
ator Sterling ot South Dakota charged
that tha democrats had not obeyed the
will ot the people In framing a tariff bill, ;
Inasmuch as a majority of. the voters,
lepubllcans and progressives, wire beltev
crs in the principles of protection. Sen-,
ator Sterling also charged that the south
with Its minority of population and rep
tesentatlon was Imposing burdens upon ,
the north In the pending tariff bill. The, j
South Dakota senator declared that a
tariff is made for a nation and not tor a 1
section, nnd In recognition of that bellei
offered to accept reductions on agricul
tural products grown In tho northwest.
"How vain the boast that by this pro
posed legislation you reflect the will ot
the people" said Senator 8tering. "How
easy of demonstration that by it you do
violence to that will, By actual count t
,303,063 voters voted for the democratic
electors, uy actual count T.ws.ws voters
voted for presidential electors running
on platforms, both of which declared for
the policy of protection. A majority ot
1,805,030. n a total vote of 13,011.166 Is a
Power of the Sonth.
"I am hero to make a brief analysis,
which, I think, will shbw the power be
hind the throne, the slender right. In the
way of production, and the resources on
which that power is founded, and with
what unfairness and Injustice to many
millions pf our fellow citizens It Is about
to be wielded.
"It Is through you, the south's rep
resentation, at the other end of the capi
tal and on this floor, your twenty mil
lions and I am not counting your col
ored vote any more than you do, and
I voice no prejudice against a white man's
government 'down there,' only I would
not for economic reasons have you 'cover
too muoh territory' your twenty millions
aro rulers over ninety millions.
As tt Affects Farmers.
"With J'oUr 67.000,000 bushels of wheat
you in effect determine that the pro
ducers of 030.000,000 bushels shall come
Into direct competition with the surplus
wheat of the world under whatsoever
conditions as to labor, cultivation or soil
that surplus Is produced With your
60,000,000 bushels of oats in fifteen south
ern states, you control In the determina
tion that the producer of 974,000,000 bushels
shall be protected by a tariff of only
6 cents per bushels; with your 710,000
bushels of barley raised In the. fifteen
southern states In 1909, you say that the
growers of 172,633,000 bushels of barley
Shall compete with the many million
bUshels, which will be Imported Under the
rate provided In this bill, a reduction
of GO per cent from the rate of 190,
Nobody will be more highly pleased over
this item, than tho American Brewers'
association, though It will be at the
cost of $1,000,000 to farmers of the north
"Louisiana, nnd Oklahoma are the only
southern states which In 1009 produced i
any flax at all a magnificent total for
the south of 11,308 bushels but you have (
It In your power, and you have exercised ,
the power, to make a reduction of 40 per (
cent In the none too high duty under the
law from 1S97 down to tho present time.
But the law Is a protection to the pro'
ducers of 18,Bia,75 burhels of f Jax. .with ,
the tariff at 35 cents per bushel, under
the present law, then was Imported Into ,
the United State In ttU about lO.coo.ooo
bushels, with a value of 121.879,000, of!
which amount over 6,000,000 bushels oft
poorer and cheaper flax came from Ar
gentina. I think with the duty reduced
from 25 to 16 cents per bushel the com
mittee's estimate of Importation Is alto
gether tod low.
"And so with the other farm products.
The producers of 3S,oou,000 bushels of pota
toes, 855,030,000 pounds of butter, 4ao,000,COO i
dozen eggs, In the entire fifteen states
in the south, determine through their
representatives that the producers of
S50',000,000 bushels ot potatoes shall sell
their surplus n free competition with the
rest of the world, that the producers ot ,
1,225,000,000 pounds of butter shall ho '
as their protection the unreasonably low 1
rate of 214 cents per pound, which would ;
fiaRtlv mean a loss ot H5.0iW.000 to the1
producers of the American product, and!
that free competition with Canada shall
be the lot of the producers of l,tw,W,000
dozen of eggs Is all settled by the votes
ot the states producing a little less than
one-third that number.
"Cattle, ohetp, swine and meats are all
on the free list at the behest ot the men
who represent those who produce a num
ber and quantity of each vastly less than,
the rest of the union. Ot cattle and
wine, considerably less than half as ,
many, while of sheep there Is produced ,
In the south Jess than one-sixth as many ,
as in the sheep and wool producing states 1
of the northwest. And so It Is through. !
out tha whole list of agricultural farm '
products UPon the success In producing j
whloh the success of about every othw
American enterprise ultimately depends,"
Just Democratic IlnneomVe.
Senator Sterling referred sarcastically
to the reduction of I cent a pound in the
tariff on rice and one-eighth of cent on
peanuts. He declared that these reduc
tions, taken In connection with the claim
that the democrats are conceding some
thing toward reducing the high coat ot
living, are mere "buncombe." He also
declared that the "high cost of living"
is a world-wide issue and refused to sub
scribe to the doctrine, that "the tariff is
the mother of the trusts."
"Proof that It is not lies in the fact
that trusts exist In every civilized coun
try," Senattr (sterling declared.
