tera of lloiiHtoii opened his campaign
hero this ill toi noon' for the nomina-
tion hy the Democrats or Testis for
L'nlti'd States senator fi'om this state
to succeed Joseph Woldon Hailcy
who will retire from polities.

Col Wdltors gave Ills views tranhly
and' In the plainest and simplest lan
guage possible. In his speech he said
that ho wanted to represent nil the
people of Tovas and .not merely a'
certain rll'itu. Ho ccpessexl himself
as opposing the initiative referendum
and the ieoall of judges and that 'w
favors a greater conservation of the
natural resources of the country.
3!r. Woltcrs detailed tho position
of the Democratic par'y upon f he tariff
nncstioii through th" year shoving
that it was not a free raw material
party and he sounded a note of warn
ing to the people not to he led astray
by the vote of false prophets pio-
claimlng 'themselves o come In the
name and livery of Democracy! Contin-
uing ho says
Advocates of the doctrine of free
raw material tell us that laving the
t.i upon the manufactured products
and placing the inanufactnreis' raw
material upon the fn'o list moans
cheaper products for the consumer.
This statement Is not coriect. Human
nature is the same the- world ovor and
one Of its first principles Is to get
the best price obtainable. The Amorl-
olse does. HC gets the best price

be can. His competitor In the world's
market Is the lorelgn manulacturer
therefore he regulat"s the price that
he charges for his finifched products
by the price of his foioign competi-
tor. His foreign competitor in an ly-
ing at the prlco lie can sell for must
not only figure tho cost of production
also add to ft the improper tax his
goods must bear before they can enter
the American market. That import tax
is lo tho advantage of the American
manufacturer. They told us that with
free hides we would he able to pro-
euro cheaper shoos. They gave us

attempts to find a clew havo boon un-
availing. At 2:15 a. m. Sunday Feb. ! great
sheolB of flame wore scon shooting
from tho windows of tho First Bap-
tist church at Third and Taylor Sts.
Before tho department could reach
the scene the roof was already top-
pling in and It was only through he-
roic efforts that the firemen were
able to save adjoining property. Si
