REVISION OF TARIFF
Opposed by Republican Leaders
CANNON'S EXTEAORDINAET VIEWS
OVER THE PRECIPICE.
The "Common Mind" of the People la
Giving- Much Trouble to the Kepub-Uoann-AliHurd
Contention Thnt to
Partially HevUe tbe Dlnaley Sched
ule Would Destroy Home Industry.
Speukor Cannon has boeii smoked
out of his tariff holo and forced to give
a reason why the tariff should not be
revised, lie declared in a private let
ter to a trust pottery manufacturer
protected from competition by the tar
iff that "the desire for a clmutfe wmcu
exists In the common mind' will drive
the Republican party, If continued lu j
power, to a tariff revision." He said
he did not want it, but It would have !
to come "in the not distant future." .
This letter, having beeu published,
compelled Mr. Cannon to make a fur- j
ther statement of his positiou. lie j
starts off by sajiutf that the amend- :
ment of a single schedule or a few
schedules is "entirely Impracticable."'
In his Judgment "nothing cim be done
except bv a complete revision of the
tariff." That, he says, "would halt
production, consumption niid commerce
for at least twelve months," and the
result would "probably not be an im
provement on existing law." "For the
general interest of the whole country," j
he thinks, the revision toward which ;
the "common mind" In its desire for
change Is driving the Republican party ,
"should be postponed as long as pos- ,
This disagreement of the uncommon ,
mind of Speaker Ca;iuon with Uiat of ,
the comni'.m people Is nothing new with j
Republican politicians. Their nffilia- j
tlon with the corporations, trusts and i
combines obliterates any sympathy for ;
the plundered people, but tariff revision i
and other reforms will come, not
through the aid of the unwilling Re
publican speaker of the house of rep
rosentatives or bin party associates,
but through the ardent reform efforts ,
of a new congress born of the desires .
of the Democracy and aided by inde
pendent voters, who are sick and tired
of the plundering by the trusts and the
corruption and grafting of the Repub
The attitude of the Republican poli
tician toward the protective tariff is
like the heathen before his Idol-it is n
fetich U worship and too sacred to be
touched. Rut when the time of stress
and political trouble comes and the
tariff idol has shown itself to be but a
brazen image and its high priests have
exalted it to plunder the people, then
the voters will have none of It and will
cast it down and break it.
The Republican contention that to re
vise the tariff by reducing the rates on
hides or coal would destroy domestic
Industry is t :o absurd for argument.
Would 'it ruin the crops r cause the
rain to ceao or the sun to be darken
ed'' The beef trust would lose a triilo
of its enormous pmlits. but in one be
lieves the farmer or cattle grower
would lose a --nt. Even the abnormal
ly hiirli price for hides n-'v being paid
lias not increased the price of cattle,
for entile are now selling cheaper than
for inaiiv years before, though the
tariff protected beef trust is getting a
111 ir! price for In cf.
Take the iron and steel schedules and
abolish the tariff rates on the products
of the steel trust and that giant cor
poration would still control the market
for iu products, for the cost of trans
portation over seas would be protection
enough, end only inordinate profit
would be reduced. There is hardly a
BC'hedt'.le of the tariff that does not
"belter sotr.e trust or combine that In
all fairness to a long suffering people,
does not require revision. The Repub
licans refuse to meddle with it, bo this
duty must be Intrusted to the Demo
crats, who ore pledged to a reasonable
reform that will preveut the trusts sell
ing cheaper abroad than here, and while
producing en ugh revenue to run the
government will reduce the cost of liv
ing to something more In reason than
RonaeTelt and Hashes.
Terhaps the only Republican in New
York who had strength enough with
the people to be elected governor of
that state nest fall was Charles E.
Hughes. President Roosevelt wouldn't
like to see Hughes elected governor,
however, lest he should become a pres
idential possibility In 1908, and so he
lias shelved Hughes by having him ap
pointed associate counsel In the coal
trust investigation. There is a con
venient shelf somewhere for every Re
publican in New York who may be sus
pected of popularity. Roos welt is more
prudent than he seems to be. Ho
knows how easy it Is to slide from the
fxeeutive office at Albany to th White
House, and he doesn't want a Repub
lican elected governor of New York
this year. lie will probably cause
Odell to be nominated and then treat
him as he did Ivins in the mayoralty
contest last year.
I TraBle Adventure In a Billiard la
Here is an adventure in the antarctic
regions taken from Captain Robert P.
Bcott's "The Voyage of the Discovery."
Nine men are returning from a sledge
expedition in a blinding snowstorm:
"An unusually violent squall prevented
ns from seeing even one another. I Im
mediately ordered a chain to be form
ed at right angles and extending across
ur track, each man keeping In touch
with the rest, with the Idea of Inter
cepting Hare, who was missing, when
be came on. We shouted nnd blew
whistles, nnd while this was going on
Evans stepped back on to a patch of
bare, smooth Ice and shot out of sight
Immediately. Thinking the slope to be
one of the short ones so coinmou in the
folds of the hills, liarne sat down aud
delibemtely started to slide In Evans'
track. In a moment or two tho slope
grew steeper, and soon he was going at
a pace which left him no power to con
trol his movements. He whipped out
his clasp knife and dug it into the ice,
but the Made snapped off short nnd
failed to check his wild career. In a
flash the ice changed to snow, which
grew softer until, hi a smother of fly
ing particles, his rapid flight was ar
rested and he stood up to find Evans
within a few feet of him."
A third man joined them in similar
fashion: "Realizing the Impossibility
of ascending again by the way they
had come, they started to descend, but
within four paces of the place at which
they had been brought to rest they
found that the slope ended suddenly In
a steep precipice, beyond which they
could see nothing but the clouds of
whirling snow. Even ns they recoiled
from this new danger and dimly real
ized the merciful patch of soft snow
which had saved vhem from It, a yelp
ing dog flew past them, clawing madly
at the icy slope, and disappeared for
ever Into the gloom beyond." The six
others eventually moved on until they,
too, found themselves on nn nwkward
nlope: "Their lender suddenly saw the
precipice beneath his feet and far be
low, through the wreathing snow, the
"Another step would have taken him
over the edge. He sprang back with
n cry of warning, and those behind
him, hearing it, dug their heels instinct
ively into the surface, aud, with one
exception, all succeeded In stopping.
What followed was over in nn Instaut.
I'.efore his lio-.-r-r stricken companions
had time to think poor Vinee. unable to
cheek himself with his soft fur boots,
had shot from among them, flashed
past the leader and disappeared."
Vinee was never seen again, but Hare,
the first missing man, staggered back
to the ship two days after the others,

One of the ieculiaritics in Stambonl
Is the Insolent demeanor of the horse
man to the rootman. Many times daily
yon will see some rascal of n cabman
trying to drive down a well dressed
man on the street. The drivers rarely
take the trouble to shout as they ap
proach pe.h-strlans. I was often tilled
with wonder at observing the meek
ness with which well dressed Turks on
foot submitted to such treatment from
shabby Turks on carriage boxes. Even
when no Injury was done to such n pe
destrian, he was often bespattered with
mud. Staiulioul mifst be an unpleas
ant place In which to live. Were cab
men in our country to treat pedestrians
so recklessly there would lie many
cases of assault :uid battery, and I
think some mortality among the Jehus.
One day I saw a uniformed Turk
picking his way across the street, using
his s iler as a walking stick. A car
riage suddenly dashed down on him,
and its driver, after nearly running
over him, hurled nt him a volley of
what sounded like choice Turkish
abuse. The uniformed Turk retorted
not. He scraped the mud off his uni
form, stuck his salier under his arm
nnd waded ashore. In our country a
man with a saber would have used it
on the drrvor's back. By this I do not
mean that the Turks nre lacking in
spirit far from it, but apparently it
would seem to be the custom of file
country that the man on foot, ns
against the man on horselrack, has no
rights. "A Levantine Log Book," by

More than half a century ago,
New Hope Academy was established
aud for years it was a liye school.
The civil war came on and theu it
was a struggle with the people for
bread for iire existence. The
school seemed to be dead, but now it
has aroused again from sleep, not
like Kip Van Wiukle, an old tattered
man, but a lusty urchin, with brawn
and brain, destined to force his way
to the front again under the manage

requires no prophet to see that there
is a bright future for New Hope.

in one of our debating societies, my
old friend, Tom Ledwell, said that
