The following is from the New York Journal of Com
merce of January 17th; , . ....
A peep into the future is believed to be contained in the
statement furnished by Representative Willis C. Hawley, Re
publican o; Oregon. Mr. Hawley is keenly alive to existing
- nnA MthWa nTiA!ia to ffive all industries needed
protection, is conservative and can be depended upon to weign
all of the evidence furnished by the witnesses before the com
mittee before assisting in any action looking to prescribing-
tariff rates. . . .,. ,,r '
"The hearings before the committee on Ways and Means
R anH C which are manufacturing and
trade' schedules, have been a reflection m marked degree of
the conditions of business and trade resulting from the World
War, including the development in the United States of a
rmmhpr of new and important industries made necessary by
our participation in the conflict and our inability to secure
commodities essential to the prosecution of the war and to
suddIv our DeoDle." said Mr. Hawley. "Among the abnormal
conditions some are temporary and some will tend to be per
manent. Among the former are the disparity in exchange
between the United States and the great difference in scales
of wages paid, and in the latter the apparent vigorous pur-
pose of our competitors to re-engage in world trade on a large
scale to secure markets. i every way possible, the great in
crease in wages in this country and the increase in manufac
v (I Important to Wage Earners
"The wage cost in production varies from 50 per cent to 80
per cent or more in the total cost of production. While wages
may decline to some extent as the cost of living diminishes
the attitude of employers is to pay wage earners as high
wages as the prosperity of industry will warrant, and the con
sensus of opinion so far is that wages will remain near the
present level for some time and that they will never return
to the ante-war basis, or any basis nearly approximating the
cre-war Tates. It is evident that any readjustment of the
tariff will be of nrimarv importance to the wage earners of
this country. So far as I recall the representatives of labor
which have appeared havebeen earnest advocates of the pol
icy of nrotection.
"I am inclined to believe that legislation for equalization
of exchange will be dealt with in a separate measure and that
a bill for a new tariff will be prepared and presented at the
cominsr session: . - ' -
i -"That the experience of the country under the Dingley
Act of 1897 and the Payne Act of 1909, as indicating the
.workings of a protective tariff under normal conditions, will
be, used as a general basis ; V
' i VThat the committee will give attention to the new con
ditions, having in mind especially those that are of a perman
ent character, to give due weight to newjnanufacturing and
trade conditions, since these will not in" any human proba-.
bility be those prevailing before the war;1 and,
"That consideration will be given toward making our
country more than ever self-contained. The purpose will be
to equalize the cost of production at home and abroad,
if;, ; Delay Would Be Calamity
i "I believe It will be possible to write a bill that will meet
the needs of the country. If conditions change in any ma
terial degree Jater, subsequent legislation can be enacted to
meet them. ;j To delay action because of any difficulty found
in .arriving at the fates for the schedules or by reason of the
amount of labor -required to reach reasonable conclusions,
thus leaving the Underwood Act of 1913 in force, would be
a national calamity.
i t"It is too early: now to discuss rates. Conditions may
materially change in this country and abroad i the next few
months clarifying the situation in greater or less decree. This
la especially likely to occur in the matter of rates of exchange
and in .the value in American money of wages paid abroad.
Anti-dumping legislation, either in the tariff act or in a sep
arate measure, will be enacted.
; The above is enlightening and encouraging.
It should also be gratifying to the friends of Conm-ess
man Hawley . in the First Congressional district of Oregon,
who are responsible ior the wisdom of keeping a man of his
stamp in the popular branch of the national law making1

The Journal of Commerce interviewed a number of Con

the Democratic members all kinds of encouragement in stat

AMERICA'S VALID CLAIMS.
We In Europe," said a prom
inent ambassador in Washington
the other day, "know that an
age is dying." He then went
right on to argue for more leni
ency by this country in credit to
Europe and for the "permanent
adoption of the policy of rising
or falling with the old world.
It is precisely this attitude of
being apparently complacent
about going to the dogs that Is
causing Europe's situation to
baffleoany men of the most gen
erous impulses in this country.
We must establish working con
nections, through some kind of
a league, with the rest' of the
world, which still means, largely.
Europe. But the teal problem of
getting Europe mors 'genuinely
Interested in standing. on her own
feet will still remain to be faced.
For nearly four-years now the
old - world has - been heavily in
debt to the new. Although more
than two years have passed since
hostilities ceased, Europe has not
cut down her indebtedness to us.
but has actually added to it.
Above all; Europe is not taking
what she owes this country seri
There have been glib and semi
official suggestions that we "wipe
the slate clean." There have been
doplimatic maneuvers bordering
on the hostile and economic plan
ror shutting off raw materials
from us. Lastly, there has been,
in all seriousness, the assumption
of the right to use $4,000,000,-
000 borrowed from us to build up
for one European nation a navy
which will com pel ns to soend
billions for our own security upon
the seas. We hare, it teems, no
special privileges as creditors, but
we have an endless obligation to
keep putting up.
This situation, doubtless, re
flects not so much the attitude of
the people of Europe as of those
politicians who dare not square
ly put before their people the
true facts as to what the various
nations owe. They are trying to
retain confidence at home by pos
ing as holding up their prestige
without heaping up heavier tax
burdens, but when they speak
through their representatives in
tbis country it is to remind us
that we mufct not press them lest
the governments ol Europe crash
But, if the governments of Eu
rope will not acquaint their peo
ples with the facts, Is it not time
for our government to do so?
Did our people not say In the last
election that they want to help
Europe, but not If she is going to
try to put on us more than our
share of the load?
Even if we establish the most
idealistic family of nations and
have the best kind of league, we
can arrive at no permanent and
wholesome basis for the future
unless we are ' working toward
full and( speedy settlement of
debts between nations and eco
nomic stability In all quarters.
It would be a genuine kindness
for this government o make the
facts clear to the people of Eu
rope, even if the revelations un
make cabinets and drive from
power men long closely in touch
with America. After all, we owe
more to France and to England
as a whole than to tho men who
happen at a given time to be as
cendant in those nations. We p
owe more to our people than to
the doplimatic system which has
thrown a ring of "governmental
courtesy' around one ruling
group to protect it from any trou
ble growing out of the utterances
of a ruling group in another land.
America wants to help Europe.
America must help Europe, for
the reason that America can
never be at her best until Europe
gets back into shape. But right

The old-time mixture of Sage
Tea and Sulphur for darkening
gray, streaked and fadad hair is
grandmother's recipe, and folks
are again using it to keep their
hair a good, eren color, which Is
quite sensible, as we are living In
an age when a youthful appear
ance Is of the greatest advantage.
Nowadays, though we don't
have tbe troublesome task of
gathering the sage and the mussy
mixing at home. AH drue stores
sell the ready-to-use product. Im
proved by the addition of other in
gredients, called "Wveth's Sare
and Sulphur Compound." It is
.verp popular, because nobody
can discover It has been applied.
Simply moisten your comb or a
soft brush with It. and draw this
through your hair, taking one
small strand at a time; by morn
ing the gray hair disappears, but
what delights the ladies with
Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Com-1

darkening the hair after a few ap-'

soft lustre and appearance of
abundance which is so attractive.
