I was talking to a prominent church
woman this week about a free reading
room for Medford.
“It would be an excellent thing,”
said she, “but 1 doubt if it would be
possible to establish one.”
When asked for a reason, she said
the people of Medford, especially the
church people, were di- ided into
cliques, and whatever one faction
favored the other would oppose.
This is certainly a very regrettable
state of affairs. No matter by whom,
or What clique, it is that proposes some
thing for the benefit of the city, all the
church people, above any other class,
should support the movement. Other
wise their religion is not worth much.

The Kind You Have Always Bought
THE DOCTORS DISAGREE
Mlx»p on Reciprocity and Tariff Re
form—The Way to Revise.
There la much difference of opinion
throughout the country In regard to
reciprocity. Some ultra protectionist»
declare that reciprocity is a part of the
protective scheme. Others of the same
cult assert quite as positively that reci
procity is the antithesis of protection.
The same lack of unity prevails in the
ranks of the free traders. The New
York Times of Feb. 10 says:
“Reciprocity knocks a hole In the
wall, throws down the top rails of the
fence and undoes the work of the
builder. Protection excludes, reciproc
ity admits. The two things are anti
thetical, opposite, contradictory and
quarrelsome. When we take up one,
we abandon the other, ex vl termini.”
What The Times says may be true
of one kind of reciprocity, but it is not
true of the kind that has been prac
ticed in thia country. Reciprocity has
been adopted only when demanded by
certain lobbyists. The hole made in
the wail has been made at the instiga
tion and for the particular benefit of
some protected interest. At present

The moral of all this is not that we
should withhold aid from Cuba. It is
rather that we should withdraw all
