Oscar Lawler, the special prosecu

with a laugh.

President Taft sent to the Demo
cratic House a message before the
holidays declaring for a reduction of
the wool schedule to a point that
would cover the difference between
the cost of production of wdolen
goods here-and abroad. The President
sent along with his message the re-
port of .the Tari Board giving - the
facts to show-just what this dierence
Was. These facts showed that many
of the schedules could be materially
reduced to a ..cftlBoint and still
sage that the TarfhW11

from time to time, send messages to

soon as they were reported to him.

and which therefore would receive
the President's approval. The Dem
ocratic leaders know that they can j
secure a material reduction at once!
in the wool tariff schedule by offer
ing a bill containing reductions jus
tified by the facts furnished by the
Tariff Board. Instead of preparing
such a bill, they rush off and prepare
a bill for the reduction of a tariff
schedule which has not been investi
gated, and about which they have
not the facts and the President has
not the facts.
How the Democrats Struck Cotton.
Last year these Democratic leaders
prepared and rushed through the
House a bill reducing the cotton
schedule in a radical manner They
knew they were offering a bill so
radical in form that the President
would be forced to veto it. They
announced at that time that the next
schedule that they would take up
would be the wool duties. They
now have the facts about weel, but
they rush away from the wool sched
ule to take up other subjects, simply
because they know that the bills
which they offer either will not pass
the Senate or will not be approved
by the President, until the facts re
ceived from the Tariff Board will
show whether or not such reduction
would open the flood-gates of foreign
competition and destroy American
The Democratic leaders, while
rushing through their cotton bill at
the last session, and knowing that It
would not pass, must have known
that the only effect that would result
from the same would be to frighten a
number of cotton mills and cause
them to run on half-time or to close
down until the agitation was over,
and that the only result from the
same would be the falling of the price
of cotton to the American farmer.
In short, it seems to be clear that
the Democratic leaders are not try
ing to revise the tariff, but they re
bent on preparing political tariffbill3
that cannot result in the reduction of
a single schedule, and that taey are
doing this solely In the hope! of mak
ing campaign capital.
