SIUST NOT LET DOWN
A- perversion of justice ; is : no
precedent for a let down In crim
inal procedure. Our great trouble
has been our laxness in enfore
ing the criminal law. Men dt
means have worn out the courts.
Now because one case went wrong,'
because; one judge proved false to
his obligation, there is a cry going
up vthat no youthful murderers
must be hung. '
Hanging is wrong
but because two. boys who deserv
ed death were saved by a friendly
judge is no reason why others who
deserve death should be saved by
the; precedent. While the law
stands it ought to be obeyed.

FINDING HONEST MEN
:s ago, he made
look to an in-
, . In a radio talk of LaFollette a couple of wee
Mhe statement that the American farmer ;must
creased domestic market to permanently better his coridiion-
" And he uttered the truth; ! Absolutely! In that assertion he
reverted to type; harked back; from the politician with an over
vanltiner ambition anelinsr fori votes to the man who defended
the- MeKinley bill against tbe specious arguments of the free
traders . He was for the moment sane: Jober i clothed in his
ririit mind of the pristine days of his vigorous manhood
' But in the same talk he also announced that should he
become President he would; immediately! reduce the existing
tariff . .: ..... ml '"t -: I--
J And in the same breath' he became absolutely incorrect and
inconsistent.; -. V ":lf. . : fpf :
f Where consistency or 'inconsistenoy Has in
greatest appeal for the purpose of getting votes, LaFollette has
.the sinister faculty of being able to assume either attitude.,
" - It is not sound economics to buy an article the like of which
yrm yourself produce. The wheat farmer does not purchase
from, the wheat farmer, nor does the makufaciurer of woolens
absorb the product of his competitor i
f 'But that's what LaFollette virtually advocates
i For to obtain a wider market in America for the products
of the American farmer, LaFollette .would reduce the buying
' power of the men and women lemployed in industry upon whom
the farmer must depend for a wider.market. (That is plain to
every man m the United States who thinks. It is plain to La
Follette himself. But he prefers to juggle 'facts with the hope
of catching votes. ; ; , " z .

AN OBJECT LESSON
There has been a good deal of
talk about ' a pageant in Salem'.
Other ; communities are doing it
with success. Just now there la a
Pageant of Progress being given
in Boise, Idaho, called "The Light
Upon the Mountain." It is at
tracting much attention and will
be an educational stimulus such
as Salem could well have with a
similar one. . ' ' ' : i i'
This -sudden discovery" that the tariff needs reducing has
been made very recently. AVitness this: :
He had one of the firiest opportunities of his long and
checkered career to display his knowledge of and his helpfulness
with the tariff during the pendency of the bill that became the
present tariff law. He could; have aided materially in framing
that law. But during the sessions of the finance committee
when the Fordney-McCumbc' bill was being revised, Senator
- LaFollette was !extremely prominent by.' his absence from! the
meetings i-" ' ' :' : , :'- - -f : I i -; ,'. " -
v. And as a matter of fact the priucipaf interest he had in; the
preparation of the bill was to get the rate on hackled hemp
jumped from IVz cents to 4 (cents a pound (266 per cent in-
crease) against the recommendation of the tariff commission and
its experts,' and when he had made this attempt and had pan
dered to a group of V1scons14 voters thereby, he promptly voted
. against the bill! . t ii I iA-.
1 lle did the very thing number of Southern and other
Democrats did voted to increase schedules in jwhich their home
people were interested (arid succeeded in a number of cases in
having such rates increased), and then voted
age of the bill as a whole !
against the pass-
' -It is the votes LaFollette wants now and his tariff record
, ought to damn him with the laboring and the thinking people of
every class. . . i- vjV

back at Katie's shiny face, look
Ing as if a good coat of varnish
had been spread over the smears
I remembered, having heard that
water only "set" paint more
firmly, then, with a swift decision
born of the necessity for haste,
turned to the door.

I said with decision. "She will

Katie glgfcled relieved ly. She is

I opened my mouth to reprove
her impertinence, but closed it
again with the judicious reflec

of use to Lillian I must be care

surveyed herself in the mirror
with a critical air which made
me bolt from the room;
I heard Lillian's voice In the li

knew there was no time for any
exchange of even the perfunctory
greetings of a hostess and guest,
so I knocked lightly upon the

Lillian answered my summons,
"All Right Here Goes!"
"Please' come upstairs - to -Ka

- A Badger Who Knows
Referring to Dr. Slaughter's
communication to you of the
18th, wherein he states "It would
be well for the. Statesman editor
to learn, before criticizing LaFol
lette, what be represents in the
way of principles"; also that
nothing is to be rained In mis
stating the truth or distorting
facts upon the questions to be
voted upon," I beg to make the
same suggestion to Dr. Slaugh
Happening to be a native ' of
Wisconsin, I know by experience
some of the so-called "principles"
or rather lack of them which
LaFollette - represents being
arently supported by the WETS
throughout the state. And I know
whereof I speak regarding the
battle which for long has been
waged by Wisconsin's best citi
zenry in behalf of clean govern
raent and- law enforcement, as
against the element j solidly be
hind the -LaFollette campaign,
whose outstanding opposition to
I the Constitution and open de
fiance of law are notorious, to
'say nothing of the non-patriotism
which in many instances closely
approaches "red" radicalism and
the soviet. 1 "
During the Republican nation
al convention at Cleveland re
cently, while on a Lake -Erie
steamer tfip-tendered the conven
tion delegates, the writer met
Governor ; Blaine l (admittedly
wet) who was suavely looking up
and making himself gumptiously
agreeable to Badgers aboard; he
being then on the eve of his
gubernatorial campaign: (and
since nominated). Approaching
the writer among a Wisconsin
group (some of whom I knew by
their chat were LaFollette-ites
and. friends and acquaintances of
his), he. confidently remarked to
me, extending his hand.
"A loyal Badger, I assume?"
"Depending possibly upon your
interpretation of 'loyal,' " I re
plied. V- , :
"A LaFollette supporter, of
course," he assuringly "returned.
Which I emphatically assured him
in return I WAS-NOT, and that,
though Wisconsin was my native
state, yet on account of LaFollette
and his followers, I was ashamed
to own it!
Upon his request for enlighten
ment, I unhesitatingly reminded
him of LaFollette's WET proclivi
ties, for one thing which he did
hot even resent, nor attempt to
dispute, offering merely the fee
ble refutation, in plainly evident
embarrassment and confusion,
that "Mr. LaFollette himself was
not an Imbiber." (Doesn't he?)
Which was the sole- defense of
fered by any one present on be
half of bombastic "Bob," al
though scores of LaFollette-ites
(who bore earmarks as well as
complexion-marks of pre-18th-
amendment days, and even then
exuding suspicious odors " of Mil
waukee's old-time chief beverage
products, bad been singing La
Follette's praises before Governor
Blaine approached the group, and
listened to the chat between us.
For these reasons, if no other,
it is unnecessary for the whole
some, law abiding voting element
to know more concerning LaFol
lette , and -his so called "princi
ples," and , the likelihood of his
upholding the constitution (which
he has not done in the past); or
his fitness for occupying the
highest office in the land. ' He
would indeed be a shining light
as the leader of this nation!
It is amazing that Dr. Slaugh
ter should tell the Statesman edi
tor., or any one else, that "LaFol
lette does not seek to .abrogate
the Constitution," when he and
his followers have already so per
fidiously and perniciously punc
Be not deceived! "By their
works ye shall know them"; and
there is no better way of judging
the future than by the past!
It is the public's turn to be
"surprised"" at .Dr. Slaughter's
apparent ignorance, which, it ap
peals tn us. should be by him
forthwith' "slaughtered." ! r
