The Democratic assault upon the re
cent tariff act is a vivid reminder of
what occurred after the passage of the
McKinley tariff law in the second year
of the Harrison administration. That
law was so persistently and unscrupu
lously misrepresented that people were
led to believe the most of their ills and
misfortunes were due to it, Rays Phila
The country was clearly deceived and
one month after the passage of the act
it elected an overwhelming Democratic
majority to the House of Representa
tives, and two years later the Demo
crats secured the Presidency and both
houses of Congress. When followed
this was natural enough. It was not
necessary to wait for a revision of the
tariff by its enemies. The very
menace of Democratic control in both
executive and legislative departments
of the National Government was suffi
cient to halt the industries of the
country, depress business, stop invest
ment and throw hundreds of thousands
out of employment. It was a condi
tion from which there was no recovery
while Democratic administration con
tinued, and which was aggravated by
the enactment of a Democratic tariff
There was no recovery until upon a
reaction the author as the maligned
McKinley tariff was himself elected
President with the support of a Re
publican Congress. The Democratic
tariff was promptly superseded by
the Dingley tariff, embodying the Re
publican principles of protection, and
under that tariff the country prospered
for more than a dozen years as it had
never prospered before. Since that
time the Democrats have not had the
Presidency, nor have they had control
of either house of Congress. The peo
ple, whose confidence has been abused,
amazingly increased Republican ma
orities in Republican States and dis
tricts, and made Republican majorities
in places where they had beeu unheard
That lesson cannot have been for
gotten, through the enemies of pro
tection appear to believe it has. They
are employing now against the new
tariff law the same tactics used against
the McKinley act. It is assailed with
misrepresentation; it ia falsely charged
with responsibility for the higher
prices of articles on which the duty has
not been changed and on some of
which the duties were reduced. If
their assertions are not made ignorant
ly they are made with a presumption
of popular ignorance which cannot be
It is inconceivable, that such obvious
misrepresentations can delude the peo
ple into again electing a Democratic
Congress with its menace to industrial
and business activity. One experience
of this kind within the memory of the
present generation should be, and
doubtless is, warning enough.

•? Butter and Butter Substitutes.
The great majority of people eat but
ter and much prefer it to any of the
substitutes which have been put on the
market. However, a great many peo
ple must use a substitute on account of
the high prices which prevail during
certain months of the year.
Oleemargine is the most common
substitute for butter and millions of
pounds of this product are consumed
each year. The difference in cos f of
product! n between olemargarine and
butter is so great that when butter is
retailed at forty ceuts a pound, ole
margarine may be retailed at twenty
cents at as great a profit to the dealer.
The person who chooses to purchase
the substitute should be allowed to do
so and he should be required to pay
only the price of the substitute. The
difference in price between the genuine
product and the substitute is so great
that the dealers are tempted to sell the
latter for the former. Only by re
quiring that the consumers may differ
entiate between the two articles can
honest traffic in the substitute be insur
This was contemplated by Congress
when the present internal revenue tax
of ten cents a pound was levied upon
"artificially colored olemargarine."
Many people think that all olemargar
ine is taxed ten cents a pound. This
is not a fact. Olemargarine which is
"artificially colored" so that the con
sumer cannot distinguish it from but
ter is the only olemargarine that is
thus taxed. When it is put upon the
market in its natural color it is only
taxed one-fourth of one cent per
It is only when the product is made
to look like butter so that it may be
fraudendently sold as butter that a bur
densome tax is imposed upon it. The
imposition of the tax is not to sup
press the sale of olemargarine or to
make it more expensive to the consu
mer, but to prevent fraud in its sale.

family home at Gardeau last Monday
morning about 10:30 o'clock, from the
effects of a stroke of paralysis received
last Friday morning. Deceased was
born in Ireland 82 years ago and came
to American when he was a young
man. He settled in Virginia where he
was married 52 years ago, in Norfolk.
Shortly after the birth of the eldest son
Frank, the family removed to Em
porium, this being about fifty years
ago and since that this much respected
family have been residents of Empori
um aud vicinity. Mr. Cush was em
ployed on the Pennsylvania railroad
and it was the construction of the
division from Renovo to Emporium
that brought him to this part of tbe
state. Eight children were born to
this union, four of whom, with tbe
aged wife, survive tbe husband and
father. Mrs. Cush is prostrated with
her great grief, this being the second
time within two weeks she has been
called upon to part with her loved
ones, a daughter, the late Mrs. Chas. J.
Howard, having died just two weeks
ago. The surviving children are Mrs.
Sprung, of Denver, Colo., Edward, of
Pittsburg, Pa., Mrs. W. B. Thompson,
of this place and Norman at home.
Deceased was well liked by all as he
was always an upright gentleman in
all his dealings and his word was as
good ms bis note. He was thoroughly
dependable in every thing. Tbe re
mains of this venerable gentlman were
removed from his late home to the
residence of bis daughter, Mrs. W. B.
Thompson, North Maple street, from

Wednesday afternoon at three o'clock.

Presbyterian Church officiated and in
terment was made in the Newton-
Wiley Cemetery beside the remains of
his daughter Mrs. Knight, who died

vices were very largely attended, show
ing the high mark of esteem in which
deceased was held. This sorely afflict
ed family have the sincere sympathy
of the entire community, having pass
ed through these two sad scenes so re
cently. On by one the old land marks
of Emporium and vicinity are passing
away, and the dear ones left to mourn
their demise can be comforted that
they have fought the good fight and
have gained their reward and now rest
from their labors.

The increasing demand for greater
safety and facility in railroad opera

men to maintain and operate its sig

The different divisions of the Lines
East of Pittsburg have started signal
schools where experienced signalmen
give instruction to the division signal
employees in regard to the proper
operation and maintenance of the dif

The importance of this step is indi
cated by the fact that, whereas, in 1902
there were but 7,891 interlocking
functions in operation on the Lines
East of Pittsburg, in 1908 this number
was 20,726—having just about tripled
in a period of six years. These 20.-
836 functions are operated by 8,792
levers. A total of 12,408 signals are in
service, covering 3.386 miles of road,
or over 70 per cent of mileage.
Signal apprentices will serve a three
years coarse. The first year will be
spent on the mechanical end of the
work with the repair gangs, the sec
ond year in the office of the Supervi
sor of Signals, and the third year on
outside work on electric and electro
