Just aa the Democratic! leader hub
peeled, workingmen are becoming Idle
hII over (be country In a strenuous effort
to discredit Ibe tariff bill. And tbe high
coot of living Is atsylng up with tbe aame
vicious object in view. Kansas City
It does get ratber tiresome to nave
man or two In a community who pose
tbe only unadulterated, simon-pure re
formers and Insist that all others are
cheap imitations. -Punxy Spirit. And
it'a a lead pipe tench that every commun
ity has a few.
Speaking, before a body of Presbyter
Inn preachers In Philadelphia recently
Prof. Doollltle, of the astronomical de
partment of the University of Pennsyl
vania, said that fifteen million years
bence, through Ibe gradual cooling of Ibe
sun, this earth will swing through space
in eternal darkness, a lifeless and useless
hall of ice. 'Twill be a cold day for you,
Professor, if this doesn't happen.
AccORDljeo to the Iswa of Ibe Slate
every employer is required to report ac
cidents, which prevent a perann from
working two days or more, to the De
partment of Labor and Industry, at Bar
rishnrg. In order to make the Informa
tion that goea to tbe department of ef
fective uefulness, these are being classi
fied aa to the kind of accident such as a
leg broken, an eye put out, etc.; tbe
amount of time lost; tbe industry In
volved; tbe machine upon which tbe ac
cident occurred, or if not machine, the
conditions causing the accident, and
much other detailed Information. The
statistics thus compiled are to be made
useful in an i fl'urt to lessen tbe number
of accidents occurring In tbe Industrial
pursuits throughout the state.
It must be beginning to dawn upon
the minds of Iboe who supported Wilson
or made Wilson's election possible by
following th Roosevelt bolt, that tbe
public haa nothing to gain from tbe tariff
legislation. Food is coming In free right
now, but tbe contents of (be market bas
ket are costing more than a year ago.
And if manufactured goods from abroad
come in at much lower duties, it Isn't tbe
purchaser that is going w benefit. The
foreign manufacturer and tbe importer
will divide tbe profit. Tbe consumer
will pay just aa much for clothing,
hosiery, gloves for everything else that
be buys. So what has tbe country gained
by the change of admlnistrrtioiif Atiun
Anierican, detestable, claa-breeding,
Idiotic income tax. That is all. And for
this, desperate chancer are being taken
with American labor, Philadelphia In
Politics Not In Season.
The Democratic Congress after having
been in session almost continuously since
tbe Inauguration of President Woodrow
Wilson has given to the country two
pieces of legislation In the form of tbe
near free trade tariff bill and tbe bill
regulating tbe currency.
Tue currency legislation is certain to
become a law this week and If wise will
be a Christmas present to all tbe people,
and one which all tbe people are certain
to appreciate. If unwise but then in
this holiday period why be pessimistic.
Ibe near free trade tariff legislation is
being thoroughly tested. Its frienda are
still tirm in Its approval. In tbe face of
the fact that conditions tbe country over
are not entirely pleasing, the Democrats
seem thoroughly convinced that it will
work for the general weal, and criticism
of its workings is answered by tbe bald
statement from Democratic leaders that a
conspiracy la at work io discredit the
majority party In Congress.
Tbis is not the time to take account of
policies, political or otherwise. The acid
test of Democratic princlplea must be
made when politics are in season and not
when charity and good will are in com
mand ot the world's affairs.
During the long years ol Republican
supremacy in national atlairs Deuiocratio
politicians who tried to make capital out
of business depression, financial strin
gency, alrikesor bank failures, were hab
itually referred to as "calamity bowl era,"
Ibe Democrats were constantly reminded
or the iniquity of basiug hopes of parly
Biiccesaon public misfortune, praying to
tbe god of mischief and eudeavoring to
bring on poverty and misery by predict
Now the shoe Is on the other foot. Tbe
Democratic newspapers are tbe conserva
tors of political morals and common aense
aud tbe Republcaus are tbe vandals who
are demolishing the temples of prosperity
to get material out of which to make po
litical capital. Leading Democratic news
papers are portraying in the moat deprec
atory language tbe iniquity of calling at
tention to any evidence of industrial or
business depression, and only last Thurs
day Speaker Champ Clark, ol the House
of Representatives, came down from bis
chair and rebuked tbe calamity bowlers
in the most drastic language be could
command. What bo said waa not with
out semblance of truth and philosophy,
but it must bave Bounded like a joke to
those who are well acquainted with Mr.
Clark, wLo has been tbe acknowledged
champion of calamity bowlers for the
past twenty year. Everything evil that
happened be blamed on Ibe Republican
party. Only last year be waa constantly
bewailing the fact that the wicked protec
tive tariff was making pricea so high that
people could scarcely live, and be Isn't
attempting to explain now why tbe cost
of living refuaes to go down under a tariff
bill constructed according to bia own
Ideal of what a tariff bill ought to be.

Our snow has disappeared and near
summer ia here again. Hunters are in
tbe woods sl.ooting birds just ss if bird
season was iu full blast. It is certainly
too bad to kill them off to tbe last one,
and if one mentions it to the hunters tbey
will say, "I don't care; tbey allow hunt
ers to come In here with their dogs and
we don't bave a chance," and it looks
that way. Tbe poor birds bave certainly
bad a "raking," and what few escaped
ought to be left for seed.
Roads are In fairly good condition.
Nobody ready for winter yet.
Tbe last cow. We learn that William
Silzleof Kellettville is tbe victim of an
other loss. If you remember a vear or
two ago be had a fine cow killed on tbe
S. AT. Railroad, lust above the town of
Kellettville, which was a Bore loss to
him, Just on account ofa piece of fool
ishness. Tbe cow was trying to get a
squint at some of the things that were
going on iu tbe passenger car when she
came to ber untimely end. We don't
bardly know why dumb animsls and
cows will persist in going into plBces of
danger Just to witness a little spooning.
But as tbe holidays were approaching
tbere were no doubt young lasses, and
may be older onea, looking for good
lime wbogetsoentbused tbat they will
tackle an old "spot ner" wbo collects
fares oa the passenger train. We don't
say that tbia conductor is wholly respon
sible for this last accident but to a certain
extent it might be. Tbis last cow had
her branch broken, but It was set again,
and she ia leported to be getting along,
and may or may not recover. However,
we hope for tbe best and if tbe old cow
does recover she may hobble up to the
pharmacy and serosa Broadway to tbe
notary publio, state her claim, make ber
affidavit, and the proper authorities will
be put after tbe cars and will try to locate
tbe one wbo is responsible for tbe acci
dents or losses of cows, and they will
not be bandied with gloves, either.
Should thla be the case we hope tbey
won't be too bard on our friend, for be is
a fine, Jolly fellow and is Just suited for
tbe position be is bold lug.
