All these government lawyers are watching each other— and that is the reason the politicians arebegining to croak "Remember the Ballinger case!” Just as though anyone would ever forget the Ballinger case, since it, doubtless more than anything else, tna.ked the hegining of the end ior one William Howard Taft and bis party, CO U N SE L FOR T H E D E F E N SE Against all these goverment law yers stand Joseph Weldon Baily.

The Republican leaders are all chuckling over "what is going to happen when peace is declared, and Germany begins to ship its dye stuff and other commodities.” If Republican expect »tions are realized the Underwood tariff will be a reg ular double-barreled weapon aimed straight at Democracy. Therefore the Republicans are building their hopes on the tariff for 1916.
