New York Racket
Is always in the lead in styles as well as in prices
Dout a year ago there was a general advance in
? rices on all lines of heavy shoes. The New
ork Racket was the last to advance their prices,
Now that the prices have declined, especially on
heavy shoes, they arc the first to reduce their
prices. Our customers will find all lines of
heavy work shoes down to about the prices that
prevailed before the advance, Our line of men's,

General "Weaver's great speech at

failure In one respect. It was n dem

without showing the people how to

THE RRFORM WEAKNESS.
The fundamental weakness of Gen
eral Weaver's speech, and Indeed tho
fatal weakness of all tho fchronIc re
form movements up to date, Is their
Ignoring tho tariff question. Tho
party or statesmanship that ignores
protection to American Industries as
a vital Issue, a fundamental princlplo
of American prosperity, simply makes
Why? Any school boy can tell you.
We have tho greatest undeveloped
producing country on tho face of tho
earth. Wo have seventy millions of
loyal, industrious, intelligent, God-
sfearltisr people. Wlmtrfiwrt? What
is the noxt factor in tho problem of
national existence, peace and prosper
ity? It Is simply this: With a rich
country and n grand ncoplo, still
those people must be employed. They
must have wtfrk.
All American industries must bo
thrown open to tho employment of
American labor. Not one must bo
crippled or neglected. Wo must quit
importing wool and Iron products and
hundreds of millions of dollars of pro
ducts of pauper Ialor, and employ our
own labor, thus putting money in em
ulation among poor people who must
spend It to live and thus inako a de
mand for American products.
What General Weaver said about
tho money question and tho evil ef
fects of tho British money standard is
all Important and in great part un
answerable. Hut no matter what tho
money system, it cannot alone pro
duce prospcrlty.when American labor
Is unemployed and tho American
homo market is destroyed by tho freo
trade Wilson bill.
General Weaver's union of reform
forces on tho Blnglo platform of freo
and unlimited coinago of silver will
never make a national party while It
ignores tho question of adequate pro
tection to all American Industries.
That Is the keystone in tho arch of
American prosperity and tho jwoplo
will not iw deceived by the silver cry.
Tho Oregon Populist platform con
fessses that American labor cannot
complete with tho pauper labor of
Europe and Asia. Put the Populist
politicians, who arc mostly free
traders, had not tho courage to tell
tho people that tho only way to obvi
ate this destructive competition Js by
fearless application of the principles
of an American protective tariff as
advocated by tho Republican party.
