SIMPLE FACTS OTi PllOTEC
The manaarers of the Oregon State Fair deserve hearty
congratulations from the people of this state
; Anil they are already being commended by those who
have attended and are attending the 1921 fair
And such an event and such a showing are worthy of
felicitations on the part of our people who live and do bus
iness in a commonwealth that can assemble such a superb
showing in all departments
For the, exhibits give a composite picture of the won
derful and varied resources of Oregon, and of the unlimited
possibilities of this state along all lines of material and ar-

It is truly a great fair
The greatest state fair ever seen west of the Mississippi
river. ,-v:.j::' K -uil
It has expanded in every way; and the improvements
that have been made in the past twelve months astonish
many of the old tera who have seen, the institution grow
from an exhibition of aiew pumpkins and quflts and other
primitive accomplishments, and a few head of live stock of
more or, less comparative merit, and some horse races that
would do credit only to the modern county fair ,
Have seen it grow to the present mammoth proportions.
The details of the expansion that has been worked out
of late years has required superior organizing ability, and
infinite oatience and the exercise of tact of a high order.

But one thing Is quite evident to any observant person,
andTthat K tharthelstfccfisSdrd SecTetary A; HrLea will have
a man's size job cut out for him. To keep up with and im

the same sort of genius that has brought the great and use

- It would require more than an
Einstein to find consistency or
anything bordering on it in tbe
arguments advanced by free trade
papers. Their opposition to pro
tection does not jibe well with
their avowed policy of "Ameri
canism." In their eagerness to
condemn the' protective policy,
they resort to distortion of facts
They do not dare tell the citizens
of America the reason for the
great army of unemployed in this
country. They make no mention
of tbe flood of cheap foreign
products which poured into our
markets and deprived the Ameri
can worker of the means of a
livelihood. These are the dis-
l astrous conditions created bv free
levies a duty on foreign e6mpe-!
titive products sufficient to make
up only for that difference in
wages and cost cf production here
and abroad. Is there any injus
tice in this? If one American pro
ducer U able to offer a better
price under the same conditions
as his American competitors, then
he Is entitled,, to the market, for

tributed. But why give to the
foreigner a better opportunity to
sell his goods in the American
market than we give to our own

labor Is a big item in the cost of
prodnction. With this vast differ
ence in wages It Is impossible for
American producers to offer their
products at prices prevailing in
foreign countries. The American
worker could not live on the

j TARIFF LEGISLATION NOW
f I The impression has Become somewnat widely aissenu
nated that the administration at Washington favors post
ponement of the enactment of a, tariff law until the regular
session of Congress which begins in December. This view of
the administration's policy .wasoverthrown by the paragraph
id President Harding's letter to Senator McCormick which, it
is understood, was designed particularly for circulation in
New Mexico during the senatorial campaign. The President
said: "In order that the Senate Finance Committee may
devote its uninterrupted attention to the permanent tariff
and revenue measures, Congress wisely determined upon a
thirty-day recess. We may confidently hope, I am sure, that
after the recess and before the end of the extraordinary ses
sion Congress will adopt both the tariff and taxation meas
ures, and that along with these it will pass the bill to permit
funding the debts owed us by foreign governments. This, I
hope,' will shortly be followed by arrangements under which
the debtor countries will begin paying interest on their obli
gations,' -V . - - v.,
; There are over 800 rooms in the best 'homes in Salem
.'registered and available at Hotel Marion headquarters for
our visitors this week. And they may be had, at $1.50 to
$2.50 a day In many cases, the owners of homes are calling
for the roomers with their automobiles. WhaVis more, not
a single cent of rake-off is being charged by any one in con
nection with this listing of rooms and direction of the visitors
to their rooms. Salem is crowded; will be overcrowded the
rest of the week. But the best we have is available for all
comers, to the last room and bed and cot.
The protective tariff does not
impose a duty on products that
cannot be produced here in Am
erica. It does not -seek to pre
vent the importation of any prod
utt. whether that product is ob
tainable here or not. Its aim is
to safeguard the future interests
of America by promoting and
maintaining the stability of Am
erican labor and industry, and in
that way to make our country a
self-sustaining nation to the great
est extent possible.
" We bad a very good example ot
the absolute necessity of being
able to provide for our own wants
at the outbreak of the .World war.
What a pretty predicament onr
country would have found itself
tn at that time had we not been
able to do this. ,r
The protective policy recogniz
es the difference In wages of
foreign labor and American labor.
Its advocates appreciate the faft
that the working class in America
la far superior to the working
classes In ether countries, and
that it is an Imposition to expect
American labor to compete with
foreign , labor. Protection does
not," however, attempt to do away
wittt competition! It seeks to
equalize that competition, and to
put all who compete on. an equal
standing.! In order to do this It
