"TIDINGS. OF GREAT JOY
We leara from the esteemed Statesman that Coneress
man Hawley has wired that he is working for the resubmis
sion of the Fordney tariff bill with the items unchanged and
that therefore a tariff on cherries is assured and the pros
perity of Oregon growers thereby certified.
. "All of which is tidings of great joy. If it wasn't for
Mr. Hawley's occasional telegrams to the Statesman, we
wouldn't know we had a Congressman i for we never hear of
him otherwise. It is a source of great satisfaction to know
.that Mr. Hawley is still in the land of the living. Although
in Congress for many years, no law bears his name and no
i one. has heard of him except through his own wires since
the good old days when Uncle Joe Cannon ruled the roost
and commended him as a 'Me-too Congressman.
' ','Of course there is a fly in the ointment the Fordney
bill only places a three cent a pound tariff on cherries when
it might jusut as well have been thirty cents or three dol
lars, as far as effect on the price received by the grower is
, concerned. But the intelligent reader must understand this
; is not Mr. Hawley's fault and the defeat will probably be
remedied later when the real thing in the way of a tariff is
" ''America must not become the dumping ground for the
cherries of a war ruined Europe. Germany might pay her in
demnity with cherries and devastated France might be re-
habilitated by shipping us cherries -and Bolshevik Russia
might re-establish her departed commerce with cherries i

r...rrui course last year, without -a tariff -to save ourcher-
a pound. ..This year,-the outlook is that, no matter how high
the tariff, the cherry crop will not bring half of last yeaPs

Talking of enriching the trusts: The trust that nas Deen

The prune story of the esteemed Capital Journal is also
a lemon; a joke. The duty on prunes under the Payne-Al-drich
act was 2 cents a pound. The idea that during the
vears when it was the law prunes sold for less than a cent a
pound is a pipe dream. It was in force from August 5, 1909,
till October 3. 1913. when the present Underwood Democratic
free trade law took its place. Even under the present law,
there is a duty of one cent a pound on prunes.
