PRESIDENTS AND PANICS. !
I he standpat spellbinders who see the hand-
writing on the heavens which tell of Democratic
victory on November 5. are waxing earnest in their
admonitions to the dea rpeople. asserting that rad-
ical tampering with the sacred tariff is calculated
to precipitate another panic.
' Remember the panic of 1 89 3." they say.
"Remember the panic of 1907. No panic under
Taft. Beter be safe than sorry."
A supposed warning almost ?. threat whicj-
the Democratic Campaign Committee has pro
ceded to throttle in the following declaration:
In this campaign the Republicans will have it !
that if Mr. Wilson is elected a tariff bill passed a
panic is inevitable. Tariff bills do not cause panics.
A downward revision of the present tariff might
make some of its highly prosperous beneficiaries1
very uncomfortable but it would almost inevitably
improve the genera conditions of business and en-
hance the prosperity of the people because the
dutis now levied are unjust are burdensome are
a drain upon the people's resources and an obstruc-
tion to the exchanges of trade. The Republican
argument puts Governor Wilson and the Democrats
in the position of really desiring and intending to
detroy the country's business and bring on trade
stagnation. I hat is the same thing as saying trjat
more than one-half the people of the country are
blind iinrr.tjonmg fanatics. We have heard thi:
argument for forty years until it is listened to now
Willi contemptuous Mnilrs. It used to be very eay
to fool the people. Where they were on e fooler)
they have become informed. I hey have le.irn'V
from high Republican sources the Iariff Board
that the old pretense- of the need of duties to pro
tect American labor against the competition of'
i.uropV's pauper labor is a ghastly lie. f hey know
that when they buy a tariff protec ted article on!v
a very small part of the added price goes into the
treasury the bulk of exaction finds its way into
the bulging po kets of the manufacturer The pc-o
pie are thinking a good deal less about the rnanu
facturer's sophistries and his outc ries than they are
about their own ondition It is the day of the con
sumer. If the return of prosperity is a condition
very favorable to President I aft's campaign this
high cost of living offests it. and more. With food
supplies at prices that are well nigh prohibitory
even for those of good incomes it is hard to per-
suade the common man the average man that
there is any good reason for maintaining duties on
the articles he needs for the nourishment' of his
The tariff argument works steadily and effect-
ively against Republicans in the campaign of this
year. The abuses and extortions of the tariff law ;
which was continued in force almost unchanged.
by an act of Republican bad faith have been too i
often exposed for deception to be longer possible.
I he hardship the injustice the outrage of extar-;
tionate duties are felt as they have never been i'elt
before. The panic cry is heard with derision not
only because of its hollow insincerity. "

. MR. PERKINS AND THE COLONEL
San Antonio Express.
' When this election is over." said George W.
I'erkins of the harvester trust in his testmony be-
fore the congressional investigating committee "if.
on November 5 Theodore Roosevelt is elected on
November 6 our accounts will be square." This
was a perfectly frank statement which most persons
doubtless believe to be true.
It is altogether reasonable that Mr. Perkins has
not donated the immense amount of money admit-
ted by him to have been given to further the sup-
port of Colonel Roosevelt with any expectation that
this money will be refunded by the Colonel. It is
an absolute donation similar perhaps in character
to a donation he would make to a railroad that
was expected to pass through a farm owned by
him. even though the benefit he expects to receive
may be less definitely expressed. It is scarcely
probable that a man of sufficient business sagacity
to be able to manage a great corporation would
waste hundreds of thousands of dollars belonging
to that corporation by spending it to gratify the i
ambition of a friend nor is it probable the cor-
poration would sanction the use of its funds for the
benefit of some friend of the manager. Colonel
Roosevelt may have given no pledge to Mr. Per-
kins or any other member of the harvester trust
that he would be as good a friend to it as he was
when as President he caused dismissal of th? suit ;
which the Government had brought against if. but
that the attitude of the Colonel toward .h" tr- t '
implied such an understanding as has been ch i '.ed
