AT LAST A TARIFF
After long months of so-called de
liberation,, the tariff, bill has finally
been passed by the Senate and
House and signed by the President.
It is generally agreed that the bill
is far from a masterpiece, but is
the best that could be hoped for in
view of the present tangled political
"Meritorious demands for further
protection to agriculture and labor
which have developed since the tar
iff of 1922 would not end if this
bill fails of enactment," said Presi
dent Hoover, in signifying he would
ign it. . "Agitation for legislative
tariff revision would necessarily con
tinue before the ' country. Nothing
would contribute to retard business
recovery more than this contiuued
The bill will act as a stabilising in
fluence. It at least does away with
uncertainty. Whether or not the
new tariff will protect American
industries without adding appreci
ably to the cost of living .remains

Unemployment is not confined to
this nation of 'to any . one nation,
but is more or 'less world-wide.
A late statement ' from' the New

The number of jobs is said to be
increasing in most of the regions
called civilized and wages are still
above the ten-year average."
The American press can. do much
to ' maintain progress and prosperity
Pefsimism in a time of depression
is an admission of defeat. Ameri
ca has the resources, both tangible
and intangible, with which to meet
and solve all problems.

Swim in trucks.
Home From Coatt
The two Crabtree boys, Jesse and
Andrew, with the former's wife, re
turned last evening from a trip to
the coast. While away the party
visited at their old home, Astoria,
and at several other places, spend
'ippr the greater part of their time at
Newport on the coast. The trip
seems to have benefited each of

There Is one man in Maupin who
clulms he catches the limit of trout
each time he gon fishln.' He says
his catch always is big ones. Tues
day he received a statement from
tho Pnrtlanl Fish company for fifth
purchased. This has aroused a
question regarding his catches. No
doubt he pulls in some large fish,
but in the light of the statement
some of his friends are In doubt
whether or not to credit him with
making hauls claimed by him.

AN ENDLESS chain conveyor,
three and a half to four miles

the world, has Just been completed at
the Rouge Plant of the Ford Motor
Company at Dearborn, Michigan. On
It parts of Ford cars in the proceis
of manufacture are transported from
one building to another and completed
parts are carried direct to railroad
cars for shipment to branch assembly
The conveyor, which carries Its
cargo on suspended hooks, has a dally
capacity for 300,000 parts weighing
over 2,000,000 pounds. It supplants
