HOW THE SOLID SOUTH WILL BE BROKEN
That the Republican party will make large gains in the
South in the next congressional campaign unless the Demo
crats abandon the doctrine of free raw material as applied in
the Underwood tariff act was the , startling statement by
John H. Kirby ."president of the Southern Tariff Association,
at the lose of a two-day-session of that association in Wash
ington a few days ago. : Continuing, Mr. Kirby said:
"Hiving been a Democrat all my life, having had a Con
federate father and having spent all my life in the South,
I think I understand the Southern people. As the head of
an organization that was formed as a protest against the
pernicious doctrine of free raw material, I feel commissioned
to warp .the Democratic leaders and members of the Senate
that - unless they repudiate the tariff policy announced by
Minority Leader Kitchin on the floor of the House April 14th,
1921, and accepted by a large majority of the Democratic
members of the House, then the solid South will be broken.
I quote from one of the offending paragraphs of Congressman
Kitchin's unfortunate pronouncement, as follows:
; 'If there is a Democrat in Congress or elsewhere
.' who is fooling himself into the belief that by our em
bracing the doctrine of protection, or his vote for
protection, though it be on his home industry, he is
, going to keep within the folds of .the Democratic par
ty, br bring into the ranks the men who favor such
: protection then he should at once undeceive himself.
A sensible protectionist will go to. the party that has
' taught and practiced protection for fifty years and
not to the party who has always opposed it.'

tainly a double-barreled country.

The late Viscount Brycs had
an unusual reputation In this.,
that he wrote a better story of
the United States than has so far
come from the pen of an American.

A fight is pending in Tokio
over the- bill to give all mala
Japanese the right ' of suffrage.
This is likely to keep the Elder
statesmen so busy that they will
have no time to .hide any cards
up their sleeves at the arms parley.
'This statement of course stands as orthodox Democrncv
until challenged by higher authority. But against this an-r1 g,v,Ing
nouncqment we place the demands of every productive indus
try in the South for a protective tariff on raw material and
the signature of eighty per cent of the bankers of our leading
Southern states! including North Carolina, demanding a duty
on ravf material. If Minority Leader Kitchin hasNcorrectly

cratic (party, but there is no compromise on the issue of free
raw material. If the Democratic paiiy insists upon a tariff
which impoverishes producer throughout the South
extent that the doctrine of free rsw material is now
then the South will go Republican just as sure as the
day follows night."
The imposition of the protective duties on eggs, asked for
by the Senate Finance Committee, as announced by our Sen
ator Chas. L. McNary in his dispatch of a few days ago to
a Salem man, will aidrohderfully in the still more rapid de
velopment of tlj3ultry industrfarlhe Willamette valley,
whichj$s.,beeirmaking a remarkable growth in the past four
earsvand "which is even now . going ahead with greater
strides than ever,, and on lines that make for permanence
and geometrical increases. Senator McNary, being a mem
ber of that committee, will without doubt see that the rates
askedVfor remain in the bill now being whipped into shape,
ifthey are not made still higher, as petitioned for by the
pomtrymen of the whole country.
The United States senate shies
a commission authority
to adjust and settle the foreign
debts. A little toujehy. Wilson
and McAdoo made the arrange
ments in the first place, with a
frea hand. The best way is to
appoint a commission of good
men and let them have a free
hand. Otherwise the settlements
may ride along forever, and make
all sorts of bitter feelings.
GETTING BACK TO HARD PA
One of the great mail order
houses shows a loss of $16,000,
000 on last year's business ajs
against a profit of 112,000.000
for the year before., There was
also a slump of about 4 0,0 00 j
000 In the assets of the corpora
tion. Much of this decline was
because the company wlped ouk
all the inflation of the war period
and based Its Inventories on act
ual values and reduced costs.
Business Is readjusting itself to a
new scale and it is pretty hard on
the bookkeepers. They are run
ning out of red ink. A j
It Is occasionally useful for a
people to learn what other peo
ples are saying collectively about
them, to know how their activ
ities appear to an outsider looking
in. Since the disarmament con
ference has been in session the
eyes of all the free peoples of the
world, as well as those of others
who are still partly enslaved hare
been turned on the United States
and, while each nation views us
through glasses slightly warpei
by personal interest, the conclu
sions which they reach are hav
ing influence on both foreigi
trade and fore'gn relations.
Those among our late allies
who owe us money are inclined to
view the United States in the
light - of a hard creditor One
finds British. French and Italian
statesmen expressing regret that
this country should not be willing
to make further advances to a'd
in the economic rehabilitation or
Europe. They seem to think tha:
they ought to get back the gold
they sent us for the purchase of
supplies during the war, although
they have at the present time
nothing but promises to pay to
offer us in exchange.
Some of the leading French
newspapers go to the extent of
proposing that the United States
should lend to Germany sufficient
money to enable her government
to meet the reparation payments
stipulated in the Versailles treaty.
If private interests wilt not make
the requisite loans, it is urg?d
that our government should do
so, just as it furnished money to
the allies in 191? and 1918.
There is also a radical clamor
in both England and France that
a demand shall be made upon the
United States government to can
cel the $10,000,000,000 war in
debtedness Incurred by the allies.
Members of the French cabinet
have been quoted as laying that
the French government would not
participate in the Genoa economic
conference unless it was agreed
in the agenda that the American
representatives should consent
either to a cancellation of war
debts or to lending Germany the
money with which to make repar
atlon payments to France.
Thsre is the customary objec
tion to a protective tariff. TheJ
European peoples hold that onr
fr'endship for those who fought
with us in the World war should
deter us from erecting tariff bar
riers against English, French or
Italian products. They view the
tariff strictly from their individu
al point of view and do not seem
to have discovered that there are
as many idle men in the United
States at this time as in either
England, France or Italy, and
that we owe them at least as
much consideration as the unem
ployed of other nations.
So much for their plaints; now
for the things which they admire.
Cables containing a part of an ad
dress delivered recently by Con
gressman Fesa were given promi
nent places in the English, French
and Italian press, accompanied by
laudatory comments. The part
of the address that especnally im
pressed them ts as follows:
"As the Republican chair
man of the National Republi
can congressional" committee,
I wish here and now also to
give credit to President Wil
son for his part in molding
the sentiment of the people
of this country and the world
in favor of such a consum
mation." Congressman F?ss was refer
ring to the drafting of the quad
ruple agrment for promoting
and preserving peace in thePa
cific area and for the understand
ing in ' relation to the reduction
of naval armaments.

The foreign press was deeply
impressd by the tribute paid by
a member of the party in power
to the opposition, something al
most unknown in European poli
tics. They take it to mean that
the treaties negotiated through
the medium of the disarmament
conference will not meet the bit
ter opposition the treaty of Ver
sailles encountered in the senate.
There is a division of opinion
'n the foreign press in relation to
our restrictive immigration laws.
A few regard the measures as
wise," both for the United Statas
and for the European stages, as
serting that it? is the duty of their
people to remain at home and aid
in the restoration of their native
land, in place of playing the part
of deserter in running away to
thp Untied States or to South
America. But a majority incline
to the view that a number of the
European countries are over

others. 1hose hold this
