WE ARE GOING TO SHOW THEM THE KEY
A)VOCATES of the Umatilla rapids project will be
ested in the following; clipping from a New York
Electrification of the railroads is today one of the big questions bearing
4'pon industrial progress. If electrification is feasible, as every one of the in
stallations made to date indicates, it offers a means of realizing the economies
necessary to overcome the oppressive and burdensome transportation situation
vhich through excessive cost or service and inadequacy hinders industrial re
adjustment and trade expansion.
' The use of electric locomotives will conserve the fuel supply, increase the
practical speed of both freight and passenger trains, permit the handling of
longer trains wfth correspondingly greater capacity and obviously, bring
about certain car-mile economies and in general - expedite the operation of
tialns. These advantages ere quite generally recognised and the use of ec
tric locomotives has been gaining steadily in ttie favor of American railroad
men and in the favor of the public, as well.
The argument for electrification applies with particular
force in the west and especially the northwest. We have the
latent power in this region and while we let it go to waste the
railroads haul in expensive coal from distant states.
The problem is how to get our power developed. It is evi
"dent that if we wait for the railroads to develop power through
private capital and chiefly or solely for railroad use we will
wait a long time. The roads do not have the money. Besides
power is needed for other purposes aside from transportation
i.nd it is scarcely fair to expect the railroads to carry the load
alone. The Umatilla rapids project would be as valuable for irri
gation as for railroad electrification. It would improve naviga
tion on the Columbia. We cannot expect private capital to in
dulge in river improvement. That is a governmental duty. Neith
ef is it the habit for private capital to carry out big irrigation
projects such as is contemplated in connection with the rapids
project. The United States government has taken over recla
mation work of this character.
Then what could be more logical than for the government
to act, either alone or through help of the states interested, to
wards developing power on the Columbia? If it is to take such
action where is there a project so admirable a3 the Umatilla
rapids project with' which to start?
The Umatilla rapids power site association is having an en
gineering report prepared with a view to showing what can be
done through development of power at this site. The data is
not yet ready but facts so far ascertained are very pleasing and
give promise that when the findings are all compiled we will
have a splendid case to work with. It is an ambitious thing to
say but there is sound reason for the belief that if the country
will harken soon to the Umatilla rapids project . association it
will find the key not only to one of the big transportation prob
lems but also to the door that now hides the northwest's greatest
unused natural asset. ' ,
A TARIFF FOR PLUNDER
rrHE valuation clause of the Fordney bill imposes in effect a
I tariff on the tariff. No more ingenious device for plunder-
ine the consumer has ever found its way into legislation.
By the terms of the bill the word "value" in the classification
of merchandise "shall mean the price on the date of exportation
of the imported merchandise at which comparable and eompeti
tive products of the United States were ordinarily sold or freely
'Jliereu lOr Sale 111 Ulc usuai wiiujciic quanuuco in uic ,yi "".1-
cal markets of the United States. Whenever, therefore, the
beneficiaries of the Fordney tariff increase the wholesale prices
of their products at home they will automatically Increase tne
datv and add to the measure of protection that they receive. The
higher the prices they can manage to charge, the higher the tar
iff becomes by the simple process of making their prices the Da
n's of valuation on imports. Thus the duties are pyramided and
foreign competition against extortion becomes the more difficult
the more that extortion is practiced.
This is not a tariff for protection in any sense in which that
term has hitherto lreen employed, even in the days of McKinley
i.sm and Dingleyism. It is a straight-out tariff for plunder. The
more plunder the more tariff.
Mr. Fordnev's excuse for this provision is the rate of ex
change. The effect of this provision is to take from the consum
er all of the benefits that might come from the rate of exchange
and confer them on the protected manufacturer, who for all
"wraelical purposes will be able to fix the duties himself.
There have been grave and shocking abuses in previous tariff
hills but there was nothing that compared in iniquity with the
valuation clause of the Fordney measure. Existing economic cir
cumstances make the Fordney schedules indefensible for the
most part, even, on the century-old basis of foreign valuation.
When that is abandoned and the American selling price is made
the basis of valuation, every household in the country is placed
As it stands, the Fordney tariff should be entitled "A bill to
pnable favored industries to plunder the American people."

Theme of recent critisism
by Former prime minister
Object to Popular idea in Jap
an of Setting a
. . i s
Destinies in a Machial.
TOKIO, July 21 (By Duke X.
rarry, In X. S. Staff Correspondent. )
Geishas and statesmen is the theme
of a recent criticism of tlje public
men of Japan by Marquis Okunia.
sage of Waseda, Tokio. and a former
Prime Minister. That the beautiful j
charmers of the young men of Ja
pan and of the tourists should not be
publicly associated with the control-,
lers of the Empire's destinies is the (
Doint made by Marquis Okunia. In a I
haracteristically frank and breezy
interview given recently in Tokio, the
Marquis freely admits that he sower!
his wild oats when a youth; he even
goes so far as to condone the custom
of having geisha entertainment. Hut
he seriously objects to the now popu
lar idea in Japan of setting a nation's i
destinies in a machial (geisha restaurant).
"I don't mind confessing that in my
youth I sowed my wild oats," says the
Marquis. "But I have more than once
warned Prince Tamagata, the so-
called secret ruler of Japan, that the
discussion of affairs of state in geisha
houses is wrong."
T'Jiere is perhaps no nation in the
world where politics and entertain
ment are so necessarily mixed as are
the politics and entertainment of Ja
pan. Geisha entertainment, consist
ing of the typical Japanese music and
dancind and smart talk by brilliantlv
dressed wung Japanese women is the j
highest compliment that can be paid j
a political figure for some political j
prestige given. Foreign statesmen
and new arrivals in Japan are fre
quently given sumptuous geisha par
ties, and these entertainments are al
ways ranked as among the most dis-1
tinctively pleasant that a visitor to
the Orient has. To maintain the old
idea of the geisha house is, in 'the
opinion of Marquis Okunia, quite the
thing. But he deplores the meddling
of the geisha in politics.

Marquis Okuma, "politics in Japan
