" Five Times Enough
THE protective tariff has been removed five times since
the birth of the United States, namely, in 1816, 1832,
1846, 1893 and 1913 . .
And in every case the country immediately suffered a
terrible panic, except in 1913, when the war broke out nine
months after the "competitive tariff bill was enacted, and
aaved u from the panic which was even then severely com
mencing; with 5,000,000 laborers outof "work and breadline
in all our large cities.
Of course, people are always complaining about some
thing. When the country is suffering a panic they complain
about low wages and low living standards, but as soon as the
country becomes prosperous and wages mount to- the present
heights, then they complain about the cost of living
And in this campaign the democratic party examined,
the country, picked out all the complaints, and then framed
a platform that presents a cure-all appearance.
Democratic leaders dare not assume that people are com
plaining about high wages, therefore they try to argue that
they could bring the cost of living down by reducing the
tariff to what they term a "competitive" size, and thus en
able people to buy living materials cheaper in foreign mar
kets. But they hasten to assure us that at the same time
they are going to do nothing which will injure the American
industries and throw people out of jobs. -
Such talk is utter economic nonsense. If a carload of
cheap soap is bought in Europe, somebody in America is

talking against protection, ana mat is wny iney put pro
tective plank in their platform in this campaign for the first
time.
The democratic party, throughout its entire life, has
fought the theory and principle of protection.
The tariff is the most important economic arm of any
government, and America has developed it more .fully than
any other country for protection of our workers, farms and

died with the greatest care and by the most competent ex
perts. 22,000,000 Engineers
TODAY we have twenty-two million locomotive engineers
moving at will over three million miles of public road.
Prior to prohibition the railroad companies led a movement
to enforce a fule of total abstinance ; it was "Rule G."
All toIJ, there may be 500,000 operatives on the 250,000
miles of railway track in America. There may be another
half million on street cars and other public carriers.
But there are 22 times as many as the common carriers
' employ, on twelve times as much road surface, driving auto
mobiles; 22,000,000 engineers; seven locomotives to the mile
of open roads largely undefended against drunken drivers, J
A few railway executives who are supporting Al Smith
want prohibition limited strictly to the men they hire and
fire. But millions of ordinary folk, believing themselves free
to use the streets and roads without imminent peril to life
and limb, want prohibition applied to every locomotive driver
in the land, whether he drives a General Motors Chevrolet
or the Twentieth Century or the Shasta Limited. j
This problem is worrying liquor controlled Ontario,
where the proportion of automobiles and of auto traffic more
nearly approximates traffic conditions on this side of the
line than in any other Canadian province. A man who re
cently drove through southern Ontario en route from Illinois
to Massachusetts came across seven serious accidents in the
relatively short distance through Canada and in four of
them the smell of booze left no

Ice Box, Adding Machine

that in 1924 the republicans nominated an ice box and
this year an adding machine

High Pressure
one wonders if the average
buyer is really attracted by high
pressure salesmanship. There are
some salesmen of dominant per
sonality who sweep Into your of-
nce, rou up their sleeves and
sweep all opposition before them
by an over-powering approach and
follow-up. Some Insurance, for ex
ample. Is sold that way, and many
other things. It Is not a method
to be encouraged. The salesman
who has poise, a natural and easy
manner, and whose persistence Is
completely courteous will . make
the strongest impression ' on the
greatest number of people. He
may take more time, but -along
with his goods he will sell a good
impression which makes him wel

Waxes and Costs
There Is a lot of difference be
tween low wages and low costs
Workers In the United States are
paid from two to four times what
workmen are paid in Germany.
France. England. Belgium. Hol
land, and Italy, but they produce
eight or nine times as much goods
per. man. American employers are
wUIing to pay high wages to get
high production. It's a good sys
tem and It works both ways.
There Is more money for every,
body.
What Changes People?
Transportation Is one of the
great agencies that, changes peo

our social contacts were made
within the radius of the buggy

GIVE FARMER A
VOICE IX AGENT PLAN
Salem, Oct. 4.
To the editor of the Statesman:
When.' not so very long ago. the
county agent subject was up for
discussion, it was generally un
derstood that the farming element
of this county, who are supposed
to benefit by it. settled the ques
tion by unanimous resentment
or nearly so. And here are the
would-be benefactors again.
If the proponents of this pater
nal measure are not satisfied tnat
the farmers do not want an agent
forced onto them. let. them go out
in the country and interview, say,
100 farmers as they come to them
making a house to house canvass
and I am satisfied we shall bear
no more of this agent agitation
As long as this matter Is for ttr
benefit of the farmer why not give
them a voice in the matter and
let them decide it? Simply let
majority rule settle the question.
As matters stand It sems to be
the hobby of a few proxy farmers
and theorists, who live In the city
and would do some benevolent act
for the farmer, and incidentally
for themselves." besides creating
an outlet for the overflow of O.
K. C. products at the expense of
the already overburdened tax
payer. After all. the farmer's problem
is not one of increased yield. It is
a Question of distribution, and
coat of production, plus a reason
able profit for what he has to
sell. If Increased yield would
solve the farmer's problem. It goes
without saying that the county
agent won't help the situation, be
cause yon can't produce crops on
theory. It takes physical applica
tion about 18 hours a day. and
wherever this system is followed
nrosperlty Is found. 'While In a
few Isolated cases an agent might
be of some benefit, on the whole
it would be unreasonable to ex
pect some college graduate who Is
stuffed with theory and has had
little or no practical experience to
be an expert capable of giving ad
vice on the manv comnlextna
problems confronting diversified
farming.
Ifa farmer new in the field
can't learn from his successful
neighbor surely the agent can't
help him.

of fungus growth be Invented.
Fruit Inspector Van Trump can be
relied upon as a capable guardian
to deal with the menace. Should
he fall, however, to bring about
the desired relief, he could call
In the professors from Corvallls
by the auto load. They can reach
Marlon county within an hour and
surely a correct analysis of the af
fliction would result.
If aU the energy that now Is
being wasted to place an agent in
this county would be used to help
the farmer , getting organised, so
that by reason of his organization
he could get what Is coming to

our first parent knew

Did he not tremble for this lovely

This glorious canopy el light and

Yet heath, the curtain ef trans
lucent daw, ,
Bathed in the rays of the great
setting flame,
Hesperus with the host of heaven
' came,
And lo! creation widened cu
man's Tiew.
Who could have thought auih
darkness lay concealed
Within thy beams. 0 Son! r who
could find.
While fly, and leaf and insect
stood revealed.
That to such countless orbs thou
snmd'st blind 1
Why do we, then, shun DeatH
with anxious strife?
IX light can thus deceive, wherc-
