voters that If the Democrats are successful tbey will pro ceed so recklessly with tariff changes as to disturb business and do awful things generally For months In con gress and out of It the same methoa has been pursued In preparation for the campaign now facing us It will do no harm to consider this phase of the question practically In the light of the situation as it is In the first place even if the Democrats elect their candidate for president and a majority of the house of representa tives the senate would still be Repub lican even if the Democrats carried the legislatures of all the doubtful states that elect senators who will take their seats on March 4 1905 In the next place the Democrats when in power however much they would like to remit taxation must raise enough revenue to carry on the guy ernment and more than half the ceipts must come from duties on ports When the supreme court de cided that an income tax as levied by toe Democrats in 1894 was unconsti tlonal that decision shut out all possl blllty of reducing the tariff below what would raise enough revenue fur the government honestly administered It remains therefore to arrange the tariff taxes so that they will burden the taxpayers as little as possible and yet produce enough revenue There arc several schedules that would doubtless receive heroic treatment if the Demo orals bad full power The high pro tection the trusts now enjoy and that gives those corporations a monopoly of the American market would be pealed or greatly modified Those ar ticks which are sold by the corpora tiers cheaper abroad than here would be the first to be cut down so that the fear of competition would force the trusts to reduce prices The steel trust is the most conspicuous of the trusts that is sheltered by the tariff and the duty on nails barbed wire steel rails and perhaps some other pro ducts would be greatly reduced and In cases placed upon the free list cultiva tors axes plows table knves horse shoe nails sewing machines harness meat choppers borax gunpowder rates sadirons aws shovels and nk merous other products are sod fur txt port from 10 to 100 per cent cheaper than the price paid by our own people Such Inequalities it will be the duty of the Democrats when intrusted with power to reform The methods by which the needed reforms can be best secured without disturbance of any legitimate business are which may safely be entrusted to a Democratic congress Ic must be membered that the Republican leaders have by allowing the trusts to dictate the tariff schedules built up an enor mous monopoly In maoy products and it will require time forfull reform and to release the people from the tariff tax and high prices that are cow so rurdensome No sensible man suppo ses that the Democrats would wish to disarrange the business of the coun try They have as much interest la prosperity as Republicans and those corporations that are doing legitimate business need fear nothing but excrescences must be removed excesses re trenched and abuses remedld That will be the program of Democratic tariff reform EUzabethtowh News VALUE OF COUNTER CIIARGE Daniel J Sully cm the day of his ad mission to the Chicago Board of Trade DurlDglbvalue of the counter charge in argument There was a man he said who should have been home one night for dinner but he did not arrive till 3 oclock In the morning He entered the bouse quietly and ascended the stairs on tiptoe His watchful wife however heard him and In a severe tune she Cilkd u Henry is tuat you1 He replied with a notes rprJseof d 1i 1YJ aud reproach in his voice Why mmy ddear who elshe did jou fxprct SUE TEMPTED ME AND I FELL The tragedy t D trolt a few days ago in which a pr mlnetit man of that place shot himself and a woman thin leaped out of a eleventh story of an oNce ullding to his death bears one of the sadly features of similar cases which fniui time to time oc cupy the columns of the press For In a letter found on his body in which he attemp s to justify his actions are these words She tempted me and I fellHere is the old Adimic excuse be draggled and feeble from wordold use The woman whom Thou gavest to be with me she Lave me of the free and I did eat Man with his broad shoulders and mighty muscles his mind which compasses the wisdom of his own world and leaps the intersttl lar spaces and his will which beats down mountains and shackless tor rents still throws the blame on the frail fram of theI weaker sex when he bears the footsteps ol expoure walking through the gardens of con ventionality at noonday He bas had many ages In witch to improve his powers of plausable evasion but the same old shambling unmanly excuse with which he tried to delude omnipotence at the dawn cf creation does its whimpering service in the twentieth century- Is It not high time that tie creature who airogates the title of the supe rior sex assume the burden of his own moral lapses instead of dropping it on the shoulders of her that has credulously eaten the bread of his love only to find it busts He bass bis powers in all the fields of human endeavor he glibly quotes lehe tbat ruleth his own spirit is stronger than he that taketh a city he jeers at the poor weakling who cannot free him self from the livery of failure or drink then is willing to admit or rather assert that when tempted by little frail woman his courage and re sistance oozes out of his finger tips like wine from an Jllcopp red cask There is of course no disputing the fact that in sporadic instances the woman has been this temptress and the man the innocent helpless vic timIt nearly approached that cord tlon in Sbakespeared Venus and Adonis Even In cases of this nature when man reels his conscience and his virtuous resolves melting beneath the weight of his baser nature there is the open course of retreat honorable praiseworthy judicious retreat fur both himself and the womana fact which he thankfully realizes when the unwholesome fever which infected him has left him sane and responsible How much more often however are the circumstances reversed and the sad somber drama of Tarquin and Lucrece enacted in real life The man almost from childhood is tirown into Intimate contact with the world He knows its pitfalls and its glnsand he realizes fully the moral social and individual stigme resting ou both parties to such lapses woman carefully sheltered knows le of these things The seamy side is hidden from her eyes and bhe has not the weapons of defense which observa tion anl experience have placed in reach of the man And yet in conscious possession of his supent- knowledge he can bring her forward as the guilty party painting her in the old role of the serpent that he may screen himself from criticism and dis aster It is not specially saviry but bettei for the traditional reply of a certain royal celebrity to the question of his course should a womans reputa Lion or happiness endangered when be said I would lie like a gentle man When people cballeuge certain firm ly established laws of rellgu n and so ciety laws made to preserve the tegrity and purity of the race and for the development the nuber sideot character they must Inevitably expect keen suffering and harsh criticism But the man in such a plight will never gain the sympathy or extenua tion of his neighbors tr even the proval of his own manhood when he seeks to shift the blame to the trail shoulders of a woman by a confession that bis own strength did not furnish him the power to flee the present evil Atlanta Constitution CON VEX TION ENTHUSIASM Tne republican managers may has been represented feel somewhat blue over the apparent lack of ponu lar enthusiasm at their national con vention but It will not luorthth byaurraLeSomething more a great deal more than shouting is needed to win a po lifcal victory There can be no doubt that the democratic cgnventton at St Louis twill be much inure notable than tbat at Chicago in every feature that makes for popular interest The anticipated fight ovcrsome portions of the party platform the uncertainty over the nominations the more representative character of the delegations them selveSall these elements will con- Spire to make the convention one of tl e mOltnot bleJflm the viewpoint ofpopular t esthJs country has fj 1 known for years and In such a convert tlon there is sure to be no end of thusiasm If the convention acts wisely this enthusiasm will spread and will be of unquestioned value but it alone cannot bring victory No convention in the political his tory of this country was more replete with genuine enthusiasm than that of the democrats at Chicago In 1896 and certainly no candidate ever inspired it among his supporters to a greater gree than did Mr Bryan throughout his remarkable campaign but party division and inefficient organization conspired to encorupas his defeat The Qrst great essential to democratic vie tory this year is party harmony Dif ferences of opinion there are sure to be until the convention bas made its platform and natned its candidates but there is no possible reason for acrimony and the present indications are that there will be none But If any man is going to that convention with the idea of refusing to abide by the will of the majority be will serve his party best by staying away A sound democratic platform a sound democratic candidate and har mony After that result has been ac complished there must be thorough organization and hard work all along tbeline Every inch of ground must be fought for The conditions call for a brave agressive campaign and there i every indication that the St Louts convention wilt make it possible for such a campaign to be waged with success By itf reckless extravagance by the rotteness which has grown up and prospered under its administration by its refusal to meet the demands for sensible tarlfi revision although it has been in control of all branches of the government since 1897 the republi can party has forfeited the confidence of thousands and tens of thousands who contributed toward putting it in power With the issues properly pre sented to them they will support the democratic ticket but nothing can be accomplished unless there is organiza hon and harmonyand the last must come firstAtlanta Constitution ONE MANS PROVERBS To protect the
