also benefactors to any community.
They are entitled to a reasonable gain in trading, and they are
deserving of the patronage of the public. In this age of order house
business, and parcel post service etc., when so much is being done
in that direction, it is opening one’s self to eriticism to say that our
merchants should do the business in furnishing you your needs.
Send a dollar to New York or Chicago and that dollar never returns
to Meyersdale. Spend it at one of our local stores and that dollar
will buy groceries this week for one family and for some other fam-
jly next week. It will keep on making the rounds, stay right at
home, and paying bill after bill. Keep as many of the good and
necessary things as you can in Meyersdale. If you support the
home enterprises, the money will stay here, where it does us all the
most good.
Let Congress Get Busy.
Congress has been in session for many weeks and many weeks
before the majority party had been at work on the formation of a
tariff bill. The country has declared that it wants a revision of
the tariff law. That was involved in the campaign preceding the
election of the president in November, 1912. That a revision would
take place there was no doubt in the minds of the people. The
majority party in both houses of Congress has been busy and
has substantially shown what it wants and what seems likely
that can be passed when the final test is made. The minority party
cannot defeat the measure if the majority wants to pass the bill, and
while it cannot defeat, it can cause almost interminable delay by
technicalities and sharp parliamentary work. The fact is the
country would like congress to do something real soon, so that the
ss world can adjust itself to the new requirements of the
business worl

industries, with American brains, American capital and American
skill to beg for bounty or a tariff rate against the outside world, is
not what the American people boast of. America claims suprem-
acy, and surely the time ought to be here when the industries
should’noflonger ask that every horny hand of toil be taxed in order
that the Fricks and the Carnegies may be produced from the nat-
$ural resources of this country.
The Burgess Question.
In the heat of the summer, politics is unusually quiet and yet
the next burgess of Meyersdale. This is a practical question and
one in which all citizens should be interested. Two names so far
have been mentioned prominently, others have been suggested. To
aspire to the headship of Meyersdale for the next four years is
laudable ambition, and the duties involved in the realization of such
aims are serious and should be
