PROTECTIVE TARIFF THE BEST AGENCY.
. Addressing Ihe American Manufacturers' Rrnort A snnatinn in
New York, Sir Frederick Black, of the British Admiralty, told the
members they must find the happy medium between cut-throat com
petition and monopolistic combines which preyed upon the consumer.
The suggestion was received with cheers.
"One of the greatest principles we have got to look for at the end
of the war,", said the speaker, "a to get the right kind of dompe
, tition. . . . We shall have to find the happy medium between unre-
sinciea competition that may be ruinous to all of us and that proper
vitalizing -element of competition which is good for enterprise."
The speaker concluded his address by indicating his belief that
there was little use to bother with post-war trade preparations, for
u uue cuuiu leu wnai tne terms or peace would be, and what econom
ic and territorial and tariff conditions WOllKl lip (rrol iinnn
Certain members of his audience talking the matter over among
aiierwarus, suggested that this was the attitude which
Ureat Britain took with respect to preparations for the great war.
a policy which cost John hundreds of thousands of lives and untold
millions of treasure, and a policy whieh our own administration
copied, nothwithstanding the example Great Britain had furnished us.
Protection has proved itself to be the best agency in getting the
right kind of competition for the United StatesT
It permits sufficient competition fron abroad to stabilize prices
in our market, without encouraging it to sueh a degree as to ruin
American industry and slipping labor into frayed pantaloons.
There used to.be an old shibboleth of the Democratic party, "the
tariff is the mother of the trusts."
t.ven me democrats are arraid to sound that in these days.

They Jiave -quipped themselves
with regulation farmerette outfits,
consisting of straw hats, coveralls,

needed, and the most they ask Is the
privilege of doing their bit towards
saving the crops.
An interesting part of their offer,
which has been handed to the -local
government employment office, is
that they will gire all their earnings
from the picking to the work of the
Red Cross. This Is the sort of co
operation and public spiritedness
that Is going to save the day for our

sented cordially, pushing back his
chair. "Did the papers come? I'll

He strolled Into the living room,
snd I suddenly remembered that I
haid laid my letter from Jack on the
table, and with its pages scattered
so that anyone picking them up
could not help seeing them.
I had forgotten all about the let

Dicky after I bad explained about
Jack. It was not quite the letter
for a bridegroom to find wlthout'ex

Dicky finds Jack's letter.
I could not get the letter without
attracting his attention. I waited
every nerve 'tense, listening to the
sounds In the next room. I heard
the rustling of the newspaper; then
a sudden silence told me his atten-
tentlon had been arrested by onie
tning. would he read the letter?
I did not think so. I knew his sense
of honor wss too keen tor that, but
I remembered that the last page
wun its signature was st the top of
the sheets as I laid them down.
That waa enough to make my loving
husband reflect a bit.
How would Dicky take It? I
wondered. I was soon to know.- I
hesrd him crush the paper In his
hand, then come quickly to the
kitchen. I pretended to be busy
with the dishes, but he strode over
