Is a "Domestic: Animal Zoo" to take the place of,,

from the time tha government of th United
States waa founded, the 'democratic "party or
those varied and divers' political organisations
whose vagarious doctrines the democratic party
we know nowadays haa fallen hair to as feMu

by the Imposition of a tariff, or otherwise the
budding Industries of the country. In season
and out of season these advocate lot fr trad
have sneered at the "Infant industry"4 and have
energetically -fomented aectlonat division on the

But now a change has come over the spirit
of the dream. It la only a few montha aince the
Underwood tariff law, with lis Unctnre of free
trade, became effective, and veo yet lead era of
the party are referring; to it aa the solution of
the vexed' tariff question. The war la' Europe

This suddeq conversion of democrats te the;
doctrine of protection ' for home manufactures

because It la an unmistakable evidence of tha
correctneaa of the republican policy.. "That
policy will be restored after lil; and the man

' Keep. the Name for- Convenience.
" OMAHA, July 10. To the KdlMMr of The
Bee: F. A. Agnew asks "Why the neces
sity of more than one name for ... on
city?" Well, then, 1 ask why tbo neces
sity of more than one . name., fo one
state? We designate different part of.
the state of Nehraska by means' of the
names of tome,' ninety, countlc. , .
' When I suggested not dropping the
name Bouth Omaha and Dundee I meant,
of course, to us them merely as "uh-.
name" as It were,, to designate various .
parte of the bigger pity,, aa wo now use
eountlea to designate,. varoua part., of.
the etat and a people In all ,mctro-'
polltan cttle use names to indicate what
part of th -city (hey refer to. , .
I stand corrected by Mr. A Knew In re
gard to Jersey City not being a part of
Oreatar New.Xorg, but the la immaterial
to th argument. Th fact remain and
he cannot deny It, that residents of New
Vork,, City atlll us the name of th.
original town and section in which they,
lived before the greater' city ' embraced,
them all, and these designations are. thv
legal one. It would be absurd. If a
New Yorker asked another New Yorker
where he lived, for him to reply, -"Here
In New. York." He would ay ; lrv n,
Washington llelghta" or "J. live in Brook
. Mr. Agnew doeen't overflow with civic,',
pride for Bout U Omaha. He registered
a being fronv Omaha because of being
afraid people wouja "turn up their Hosts
aad, say, 'Oh, you are from Hog Town'."'
He didn't. hewe tb gumption apparently
to turn on such, maligner and defend
his city. . " -Understand,
then. Brother Agnew, that
my proposition 1 not to retain the nam
Bourn .Omaha, aa a separate , city. After
the vote of June 1. no on haa ih. '
to do that. But a a 'name to designate
a definite section of Greater Omaha it
will be uaetul. Of course. In registering

would be horribly wasted. But only 0
cent a week for tobacco Juat amounts
to t. a year. Pav, wouldn't those six
children have a, lovely Christmas with
that, and the poor old mother would no

a mess of meat for once since she waa
Oh. wrelir The children and her, no

I dont suppose .there. Is a store In
Omaha that, would give her lier money's
worth.' Of coarse, he earns the money:
hla wife doesn't do much; It's only a mere
trifle raising six children, washing their
few clothe, getting up nights ' to take
care of them. She has to fry a slice of

measure out their dally allowance of to
