BY HOOK OR BY CROOK
A New England bloc in Congress, suggested by Senator
Lodge, should begin with a finish fight to keep hides on the
free list." Springfield Republican.
'They have been on the free list, or nearly so. for a lone
tirne, by hook or' by crook.
, . Ihe McKinley tariff bill put an ad valorem duty on hides,
but placed skins on the free list. By connivance of the Unit
ed .States Treasury Department, or rather with the head of
that department, the New England shoe manufacturers and
tanners secured a promulgation Jhat made a calf a very good
sizfed cow, and therefore a cow hide a calf skin, and so cheat
ed (the United States' government out of about $7,000,000 a
year, and nearly all the hides of South and Central America,
and other countries, were let in duty free, as skins. It was
a skin game that "skim'? the American farmers, and at the
same time failed to help the Ultimate consumers. But it did
line the pockets of the shoe manufacturers
And these people have been playing both ends against the
middle ever since. ' , ,
They f are getting their hides duty free now, under the
Underwood tariff - " ' . . , i7 ,
) i And they induced the Ways and Means Committee mem
bers of the House, in their hearings of last year, to put both
hides and skins on the free list under the plea that all the
100,000,000 wearers of shoes in this country had a higher
call upon the sympathies of those members than the farmers
who would benefit by a duty on hides. And ,so they would
have, if the difference were to be added to the prices of shoes.
But not if the difference were to merely go into the pockets
of, the New. England shoe manufacturers. And there is where
lti would go; decidedly. It is a habit with them-
; Now, it is evident front the remark of the Springfield Re
publican; that some of the United States Senators are onto
the little game of the shoe manufacturers, and that perhaps
the farm bloc is looking out for its own "
f And the writer sincerely hopes this is true.
' Along about 1900 the Appraisers of the United States,
after a thorough investigation, recommended and secured a
promulgation from the then Assistant Treasurer of the Unit
ed States putting a kibosh on the game of the shoe manu
facturers in getting their hides through free of duty as skins.
Lyman J.-Gage, then Secretary of the Treasury, was away
on his ummevaoation. rThe promulgation of the Assistant
Treasurer, which was'kn honest and fair promulgation based
on facts and figures gathered from the whole of the trade
of the country, was revoked as soon as Mr. Gage got back
from his vacation, and the skin game went on and remained
In business at the same old stand.. ' ' -
Heretofore in the whole history of the country the farm-
irVhave'had no strong voice to represent them before the
teats of-the mighty in Washington. It was high time they
formed a bloc; and it should remain in business as long as
tie interests that would prey t upon them are active and on
the job. " 'r ' .
1 There should be a duty on hides, and hides should mean
hides, r The wording of the paragraph imposing the duty
should be plain, and it should have an honest interpretation

ONE REEL YARNS I
THE HINGING TOPS.
Sammy's grandfather always
had tops for him. Sammy could
remember how when he was a
very little boy he would go into
his grandfather's big room and
ask for a top. Then his grand
father would bring ont some
wonderfully colored or strangely
shaped top and spin It for htm,
right on top of his desk.
Sometimes one ot the tops
would be given to him for his
very own, and he would keep
spinning It untlt he was tired
and went to beg his grandfather
for a new top.
Most of all he liked the big
humming tops with long strings
for. spinning them. He liken
their bright colors and low. mu
sical tunes. His grandfather
was always tinkering with them.
He would never.' let Sammy have
any of the big tops.
Sammy could never think ot
his grandfather wlthouV his tops.
As he grew, older and the tops
no longer appealed to him, hi 3
grandfather still kept buying
tops, and Sammy realised that
the old man had been buying the
tops more to amuse himself than
to amuse Sammy.; This worried
Sammy little. "It didn't seem
quite right for ait old man to be

Conccrning' the Viaduct.
Editor Statesman: I had hop
ed that after sober thought on
the subject the matter of build
ing a viaduct over the rallro?d
at the fair grounds would be
dropped, but according to Sun
day's paper it seems to be almost
a settled fact. I hope the pub
lic service commission will Invest
tlgate the matter fully before
authorizing the work to com
I am quite sure the state high
way commission never gave the
subject a moment's sober
thought, neither did they con
suit with any one who is vitally
interested in the matter, for it
they had they would never have
made the suggestions they did as
quoted in the Sunday Statesman
As an interested party I wish to
call attention to the fact that it
this viaduct is built as contem
plated it will be one of the cost
l'.est mistakes it is possible far
Salem to make.
As a first point, it is the de
Sire to elmlniate the danger of
the railroad crossing. While the
danger from the raiway would
be past, tht danger from motor
traffic would be many times in
creased. Imagine Salem or Port
land choosing its two busiest
streets and compelling all the
traffic of both strteets to pass
over one of them-in the interest
of safety! During the summer
months the travel on Pacific
highway is tremendous, also on
the Silverton road on Bnnoay
and holidays; there is an almost
continuous line of cars going
both ways. And think ot condi
tions at " fair time, and then
think that the promoters ot this
viaduct scheme propose to force
these great streams ot cars and
other vehicles to pass over a sin
gle viaduct, the two lines cros
sing each other at this point.
How many policemen have tney
decided it will take to separata
the continuous jam on the via
duct? Now. 1 wish to call tn
attention . of the public service
commission to tacts, not theo
ries. The whole country north
and northeast of Salem is a
?reat gran. hay, froit, and vege
table producing section. Whin
the same thing will occur at oth
er times In a modified way 1
wish to take state fair week as
an example. At this t'me of the
year there are vast quantities ot
fruit, hajtjkagraln. and wood go
ing to Salem every day. On ill
previous years the jam has been
30 great That officers had to be
stationed at points to divert traf
fic so that a movement was pos
sible. If the viaduct Is built all
traffic would be forced to one
point, and the man with a load of
fruit or anything else caught in
this jam will Jbe lucky if he gets
to his destination a half-day late.
The canneries ought to put up a
big protest against the viaduct,
for It will mean great quantities
of soft, half-spoiled fruit after
being in the hot sun for hours.
or If it should be wet weather as
"t often Is during fair week what.
will be the consequences to fruit
or grain well soaked? What will
the Portland people who attend
the fair think of Salem for fore
Ing them to stay three 'or four
hours longer than they used to
in their cars waiting to get in
and having the same trouble get
What If there is an accident
or some one is sick north of the
viaduct, will the doctors have to
wait for hours to get through the
jam or travel 10 or 12 miles
farther to go round the rfver
road. The tourist travel will
surely want to make Salem their
home aTter s'tting for hours n
the hot sun trying to get into
Now I don't believe in condem
ning a thing- without giving a so
lution for the problem. I have
heard It stated that the viaduct
would cost about 1100.000; that
amount at 6 per cent would cost
iseoo per year In interests, to
say nothing of having to pay the
principal. Also, it Pacific high
way was widened out at the rail
road crossing so there, would be
tots or room and a smooth cros
sing and a. watchman employed
to "6ped "'a"haclose' gates when
tra'ns were passing the danger
from trains and collision ot cars
would be eliminated to the sat
isfaction of the whole country
involved. If the offer was made
tomorrow that- tour men were
wanted, two for day work and
two for night work, tending
this crossing at a salary of 1800
pe annum there would be plenty
of good men who would be glad
to take the positions. These men
would cost the taxpayers $4300
per year instead of $6000 for In
terest and 1100,000 principle.
