published, and always tries to pub-

Still there are a few that do not
take it, but prefer th« two-bit fake
journal published in Maine or
some other northern state. They
are the people who do not believe
in spending their cash money with

goods on time and waits until their
crop is made before he gets his

for the amount of $30,000. The

Prof. Mally, the state entomolo-
gist, say8 the burning of lamps in
the fields at night for the purpose
of catching boll weevils is an un-
necessary trouble and expense, as
it does no good. While the
Sticker is not very well posted on
such matters, it believes that Prof.
Mally is a little wrong in giving
thi? advice, as a good many promi-
nent farmers who have tried burn-
ing the lights in their fields, have
informed us that it is a good plan,
that and that much good would be ac-
complished if ail the farmers would
try the experiment. He also says
that the dead squares which are
found between the cotton rows
should be picked up and burned
as each one is liable to contain a
worm, which will in due time be-
come a boll weevil.

Doctors are primarily interested
in perfecting themselves in the art
of medicines and surgery. By the
practice of these arts they support
themselyes and render that service
to society that justifies their living.
But under the present social and
industrial system we are not only
practicing physicians and surgeons;
We are also business men, expect-
ing our share of remuneration for
our professional activity, having
families to maintain and educate
and being also responsible for our
own maintenance when the period
of old age comes upon us as it al-
ready has upon me. Most of us
are property holders, having our
share of the burdens of government
to sustain. But above this, we are
educated citizens ol the republic,
and have -not only a private inter-
est in having a wise.-and just gov-
ernment, but an individual respon-
sibility in doing our part to secure
it. Hence we should devote a rea-
sonable time to a careful consider-
ation of public affairs in order that
we may perform well our pubtic
duty in asserting our influence
with our associates.
At the present tinie the extra
heavy taxation brought about by
the war with Spain audits continu-
ation indefinitely in another hemi-
sphere for the sake of humanity
and for the sake of wealthy corpo-
rations, should receive due consid-
eration. Dr. Taylor of Philadel-
phia, who has long and earnestly
advocated a tax on large inheri-
tances, writes in regard to this:
"What I regarded as the best
feature of the recent war revenue
law, makes a start in this direction.
Being interested in how this fea-
ture was progressing in practical
application, about six months ago,
being in Washington, I called at
the Internal Revenue Department
and made inquiry. At that time
no legacy taxes had been actually
collected, but the first cases were
then in hand. 1 said to the com-
missioner that 1 would inquire
again later. On April 24th I wrote
him, and on April 29th I received
the following gratifying reply:
'The law is being carried out
without any trouble. The total
receipts from the legacy tax, so far,
amount to $398,364.61. There has
been an assessment recently made,
not included in the above, of $200,-
379.90. This is the largest amount
assessed, so far, in any case. The
amount collected up to this time is
not a fair idea of what will be the
annual receipts from this source
when the law has been in full op-
eration, Usually a year or more
allowed before distribution of
estates, and the law is complied
with if the tax is paid immediately
before distribution. I think the
tax on legacies will be a popular
tax. It is comparatively easy to
collect. There is not much oppor-
tunity for evasion. It is not a
jurdensome tax, and it does not in-
terfere with any industry or occu-
This* letter from the Internal
Revenue department is very
That we must soon revise our
tariff law and remove all protective
tariff from articles controlled by
trusts is becoming daily more evi-
dent. We must do this in self-
defense from the trusts; also be
cause of the fact that our "infant'
industries are now able to compete
with foreign industries, not only
here in America, but abroad as
well. Our exports of manufact-
ured goods are rapidly growing.
Hence the income from custom du
ties will grow less and less, and we
must look to some other source for
revenue for the support of the na-
tional government. Is not time
that we should look to accumulated
wealth as a source of this needed
We have taxed the poor mans
breakfast table and the widows
shawl for many years, while accu
mulated we<h h$s gope free; it
has grown immense in magnitude
and arrogant towards the govern-
ment. The richest are taxed the
least in proportion to their wealth,
yet they get the most protection
and service from the government,
and those people live abroad most
of the time, and spend most of
their incomes there. Is it not time
we were looking to those vast accu-
mulations as a source of rightful
and legitimate revenue. Let the
legacy tax be greatly increased; adc
an income tax, and double or treble
the income tax when the income
goes abroad for expenditure; and
a<}<3 a non-resident tax and an alien
land tax, and perhaps ap alien
property tax. Do these things and
we will have a nation with a bigN.
All this would be in the direction
of good public policy.

How ridiculous, the republicans
want to prosecute Bailey, W. J.
Bryan and-others for telling them
that they violate the principals
upon which our government was
founded. Such an idea. This too
conspicuously shows their animos-
ity toward anybody telling the
The republicans say that the
democratic party was always for ex-
pansion because Thomas Jefferson
purchased Louisiana in 1803. Now
everybody will concede that this
was done for the welfare of our
country. If we could not have
purchased Louisiana it might look
very different today. You all
know that Louisiana was a vast re-
gion, nearly as large as the United
States at that time. It belonged to
France. The French would doubt-
less have planted colonies there
and another strong nation"1 would
have grown up side by side with
us. Our country would have been
compelled to maintain a large
standing army as European coun-
tries do. Our country would never
have been the "Great Republic" if
Louisiana had not been acquired.
Now you see that the democratic
party acted very wisely. The pur-
chase of that Country was sinequa-
nonymous to live in peace. Much
is said about the rotten monarchies
of Europe. Is not our country go-
ing to be a monarchy? We in-
creased our array. Does not mili-
tarism mean imperialism and impe-
rialism monarchism? President
McKinley in one of his speeches
said "conquest by force is criminal
aggression." We are conquering
by force therefore that must be
criminal aggression. Who declared
war in the Philipine Islands?
Congress did not do it. Our whole
regular army will be needed in
those islands before we can subju-
gate those semi-civilized people.
Aguinaldo can not be blamed for
fighting for his country. He was
fighting for independence before
we took possession.
When our forefathers fought for
their freedom and England saw
they would have success and sold
the colonies to some other Euro-
pean power, would they have not
still fought^ftfr their indepenpence?
should say they would have
Everyone of us today would give
our life for our country if some
foreign foe should try to treat us in
such a manner. Nobody can blame
the Philippmos for all the diaboli-
cal deeds they are doing. If we
would have withdrawn our fleet
and army from the Philippine is-
lands as soon as peace was declar-
ed and asked Spain to pay all our
expenses and that country had re-
fused to do so then was the time to
take possession of the whole archi-
peligo. Now, of course, many say
we could not leave the islands af-
ter we had destroyed the Spanish
fleet because there was nothing to
protect them and some other power
might have taken possession. But
if Spain was not able to protect her
colonies that would have been none
of our business. All our trouble
would have been spared. And if
we succeed in quelling the Philippi-
nes (about which there ie no doubt)
we will always be compelled to
have a large military force there,
if not it wont take long before there
is another uprising. Whenever
people fight for their independence
and fail, it is conspicuous that they
will show their animosity as soon
as there is a chance.
Looking backward every true
American must feel proud that we
Were not compelled to have such
large military forces as the coun-
tries of the old world. We can
see plainly that all Europe is
groaning under such a burden.
Think of the great number of poor
people in those countries, which is
largely due to the large armies.
The outcome of such a policy as
our government has been advocat
ing the past year will be tbat we
will also have to increase our mili-
tary forces from time to time.
Much has been said lately about an
alliance with Great Britain. Do
we really need her aid? I think
not. Our country can get along
without an aid. If such an alli-
ance would be formed then we
would constantly be at war because
England is somewhat che<ked by
the European powers in the "Ori-
ent." Of course England would
be glad to have our aid, thep she
would be aggressive. But as often
has been said "England and the
United States against the world,"
might prove a failure. England
has a very large navy, but is it as
capable as it is large; there is some
doubt about it. France and Rus-
sia would be more than a match for
her, and what would the United
States do with the other powers?
Can we hold them at bav? Every
thinking person must concede that
this is impossible.
If an alliance with Great Britain
Was formed would not the large
number of Germaus in this country
speak? The Irish living here are
not so friendly to England either.
The outcome of such an alliance
would be only to our disadvantage
John Bull would get the meat and
we would have to be satisfied with
the bone$. K. F. Q.
