Tariff Pfomliiei and Proipeols.
After six months' labor tho demo
cratic congress has brought forth tho
dQinocratlc tariff. The, njcasurq, .al
though greatly transformed enrouto
since Its original Introduction, . .has
boen put through .by prapticaily a
strict party vote, and will go on the
statute books as performance of tho
platform pledge- upon which tho dem
ocrats went Into power.
Tho aVowod purpose of the new
tariff is to readjust tho burdens ot
federal taxation in such a way as to
rolleve the consuming masses and
make them weigh heavier upon ac
cumulated, woalth, thus reducing the
high cost of living without disturbing
business, reducing wages or Jncrons
ing unemployment Tho real test
gaugo, thoreforo, must bo the effect
of tho now tariff upon the prices of
necessaries, and upon tho aggrcgato
living expeuses of tho.avorago family,
If tho democratic tariff will accom
pllsh' what is expected ot it, and what
was promised or it, evoryono will
rejolco, but oven President Wilson is
already hedging by saying that tho
tariff will only affect living cost
lowly and indirectly. Apparently
tho democrats themselves' are not
quito so confident now aa they pro
tended to bo that tariff reduction Is
tho whole ablution, and onjy solution,
of our Industrial .problem.

with Coldnol James II. Bulla, Governor
orentaQs adviser, aa president of this

tldn. M. Magney was absent from his
office, so t put mycaso up to one of

tlon to It but advised me to seo Mr,
Magney, himself. If Mr. Magney falls
to, enforce tho law and violates his oath
ot ornee. like his Predecessors, I shall
tako tho subject-matter up with the
state's attorney and tho United States
attorney general. If I believe It neces
sary I will call Secretary Bryan's and
President Wilson's attention to how the
farmers and everybody else are fleeced
by the stock yards or beef trust and
how the workmen In South Omaha are
In an abject state .of serfdom with this
trust If Mr. Magnoy does his duty ho
can send some of these fellows to the
"pen," and I know whereof I apeak. The
only redress the oppressed and perse

is tc have the state own the slock

laborer squarely as cltlcens and not aa

of secession and revolution when home

ridiculous, classing the demonstrations of

fact of much significance that corre
spondents of New fork newspapers at
London and Belfast alsed up the tteirast

their 'dispatches last Sunday. Tho Im
partial observers on the spot regard the
successive vocal threats as a -unionist

roots of the movement by showinr .Sir
