There is no occasion for warning. Any

serves not only to be swindled, but should
be sent to penitentiary in the bargain.
It looks extremely ridiculous for a news:

kindand thereby learn a valuable lesson.

BEFoRE we made any cotton prints in
this country they were bought in Europe,
and we paid 88 cents a yard for them.
We placed a Protective duty upon them,
We immediately began to establish the
manufacture here, and the price has gone
on going down, until today what do we
see? The duty on cotton prints is 4 cents
a yard. They are worth 5 cents, com-
mon standard prints, in Great Britain.
Now, if the tariff is a tax. all the domes-
tic prints in America should be sold for
cents a yard. Are ‘they? Two years
ago I sent toa friend in Mauchester, Eng-
land, and asked him to buy me a piece of
English cotton print. He paid 5 cents a
yard for it and sent it to me.
I asked my wife to. go to a store here
in Washington, not distinguished for is
cheap prices, perhaps, and get me an
American print of equal quality and in: |
form me what she had to pay forit. She
bought a piece that she said was better
aid she paid 5 cents a yard for it, pre:
cisely the English price. Thirty cents a
yard when we first applied protection, 5
cents today, and every yard made in this
country. We never could have estab.
lished the manufacture of those articles
if we had not adopted protection. The
price would never have fallen as low as
it has if it had not been for protection.

The word ‘‘crank” is one of great and
growing popularity. Although of very
modern origin, it occupies a prominent
place in the vocabulary of the unthinking
and fickle masses. Perhaps no other
word ever grew po quickly into public
It is fortunate for ¢he wellbeing and
progress of mankind that neither this
word nov its equivalent was uttered by
the human tdngne until very recently.

sons of the valley of the Nile, Moses

Imagine Moses pleading his cause i
the court of Pharaoh when some hai

“Crank!” Moses would have been driv

him exhorting his brethren in the shadow
of the pyramids when some knave shoukl
have hooted, “Crank!” A shower o
mortar and stones would doubtless
been fired at him, and a subsequent duc

In mechanics, “crank” is defined
‘ithe end of an axis bent and used to give

The inertia of human events would be

Is it worth while to jostle a brother,
Bearing his load on the rough road of life?
Is it worth while that we jeer at each other; i
