There is a “ deadly parallel" be
tween conditions of the country
today and those o f twenty years
ago. declares Hon. Simeon D. Foss,
representative in Congress o f the
Sixth Ohio District. Dr. Fess is a
close student of political condi
tions. being the author o f the His
tory o f Political Theory and Party
Organization in the United States.
“ Democrats can not ignore the
deadly parallel o f twenty years'
ago," he says, “ when they super
seded a protective tariff system
by their revenue system under
the name o f the Wilson bill. Im-j
ports increased, exports decreas-
ed, the balance o f trade was turn
ed agains against us. gold was ex
ported. capital could not invest,
labor lost employment. In a word
business was paralyzed.
“ In the face o f such distress,
the Democratit party sought a
new issue, and a new leader and
t found the issue in ‘ 16 to 1’ and
the leader in William Jennings

Now, note the
ieadly parallel; For the first time
in twenty years imports have out
run our exports. In the single
m.onthe o f April, 1911, the change
against us from the month of
April a year ago, was sixty-four
million dollars. Th;s tendency was
continued in May, a direct result
of the Underwood tariff act. the
second Wilson bill. Capital is hes
itating, labor is unimployed, gold
is leaving the country in frightful
proportion, business is paralyzed
and the Nation is facing an issue
of bonds, and a season o f depres

years ago under the last Demo

discussed the Underwood bill, in
which some o f us pointed out the
inevitable consequence, we are in
