While Time in dark, and dawn, and dew
His certain way Is winiilns
It Is n sneet to sing of you
Joy thrills my soul a-sinRin'.
My lieart then owns a quickened beat;
The sweet sons I begin It;
But dearest, it Is only sweet
Because your name is in it:
It is not ffarlaned with fame.
Nor any glory given;
But there's for nie no dearer name.
Sweetheart, this side of heaven.

RESPONDING TO THE EMERGENCY TARIFF
EPRESENtATIVE FORDNEY'S and Senator McCum-
ber s Emergency Tariff Bill may be making doubtful pro
gress in congress but there is no auestion about the heart
iness of the response it is stirring up abroad.
What Canada will do if the bill is ever enacted has alreadv
leen indicated. Our exports to that country consist-xhiefly of
mouuiauuira ut cuiupeuuun wun rsmisn gooas ana amounted
Jast year to almost 900,000,000. Nothing would be easier for
Canada than to increase the tariff taxes against the United
States in preferential favor of Great Britain, and this would un
doubtedly be done. Our best customer in South America is
.-.rgentma, which took $167,000,000 worth of good3 from us last
rear, and the Argentine parliament is ready for responsive ac
tion in the shape of a bill for a 40 per cent ta on imports from
the United States or any other country increasing duties on im
ports from Argentina. "With our great supplies of raw mate
rial, says tne Deputy introducing this bill, "we can go to any.
iiitti net m uie worm on a iirm looting.
That is a response which Brazil, Chili and other South Amer
ican countries can and doubtless will make. Action of the kind
oy-congress on a fake "emergency" would create a real emer
gency for them which they would be obliged to notice. There
is a remaining wide circle of good customers of the United States
ho would also have a real emergency forced upon them, anr
we may expect to hear from them all in good time.
i What could be more encouraging to the restorers of Ameri
can tariff normalcy? With all of the world's markets primed
and ready for retaliatory measures against American goods, the
"emergency" doctors of the senate may well be moved to call
for another cloture Vote and jam their bill through as soon as
possible New York World.
SO Uncle Sam is being pictured as a loan shark because he
want Eurtpean nations to repay him the money loaned
during the war. At the time the money was borrowed
your Uncle was not so pictured. This assumption that loans
made by America should be cancelled is about the most nervy
suggestion j et heard. It is a poor way to treat the nation that
tame to the front in the nick of time in order to save civilization.
There may be a feeling in Europe that money grows on
bushes in America and that the United States can cancel its
loans and never miss the coin. As a matter of fact our govern
ment borrowed the money that was loaned to Europe and must
some day take up its own bonds. If Europe does not pay the
American taxpayer and consumer must foot the bill. Therefore
the European proposal is that private individuals in the United
States, of all walks and stations, assume a burden that plainly
belongs on the people of Europe. It i3 a line of action the Amer
l. an people may justly decline with thanks. If England wants
some country to pay its war debt let them look to the country
that started the war. The kaiser is a good wood cutter; keep
GOING UP, NOT DOWN
FRANKLIN H. GIDDINGS, a professor in Columbia Uni
versity, refuses to accept the view" held by some people
' that this is a very wicked age and is daily growing
worse. Professor Giddings believes that "present day morals
are neither substantially higher nor lower than they were one or
two generations ago and he quotes the remark of a former pub
lic official that "we have always1been going to "the dogs and
here we are today."
The Giddings error is that he is too pessimistic. There is
j ood ground for the belief that moral standards are higher than
they were a generation or so ago. There has assuredly been a
.substantial advancement in the last 20 years at least in the west.
Human nature has not changed, it is true, but society has be
come more particular in its requirements.
Discouraged folk of course will point to extreme styles of
feminine dress as a sign of nresent dav dpnravitv Vor thoo
etyles whatever their faults may be are more modest than Cleo
patra's. There is less room for complaint than there was in
Babylon if news accounts of that day may be relied upon. So
nai can you ten about styles?

A DEMAND OF THE DAY
F it be true that 5000 electric horse power can be made to
operate a single track railroad for a distance of 100 miles,
the O. W. R. & N. company and other lines aa well ran
yet all the power they need from Umatilla rapids That power
should be used It is provided by the sun, the moon and the
mountains and the Columbia charges nothing for running down
lull Our water power is inexhaustible, whereas the coal supply
is being depleted. By using coal for railroad operatfon we draw
on our capital; if trejuse water power we save our capital re
source and make use of energy now totally wasted.
That the railroads of the northwest r.hould bo electrified is
the truest thing in American economic life today.
