Our Ticket Taft Sherman For President For Vice-1'renidcnt Perkins McLachlan For Senator For Representative. A Democratic victory would practically mean ruin to the orange and ; lemon growers of Southern California for it is the intention of thai party, both privately and publicly expressed, to attack the tariff with rtithlcMs hands. Beware of Confusion. Tariff in not, one of tho most easily understandable; matters pertaining to government. Tlioro havo boon j United Sl,at,OH national tarifl'_ laws | HI rice James Madison reported and i congress paflsod tho natlonnl Issue in j 17H!). Tariff has been a bone of con- I tentiori in every civilized country. Conditions make contention on this Hiibjeot. Oreat Britain, not being' in need of as much protection as United States, owing to her tromori- doiiHly diversified resources, ban gradually done away with it on numerous articles. United States, still young, still struggling to prove to its own people that, the country is HO!f-sus- taining, does need a tariff on products brought, forth as well and superior to those of the old countries. United States is a NATION Of' 1 KIUOKMAN, men working for fhorn- Holvos, men worthy of their hire, men drawing bettor wages th'in any conn- try of men in the world. Serf labor, slave labor and the pitiable pitumco allowed tho wretched peoples of some old world countries, renders it possible for those countries to ship to us goods which wo produce ourselves, lit a price below our cost of production, lu order to protect the American workluKUian, the business man and the producer of brain ttud soil wealth, wo must maintain a charge tor the privilege of selling goods iu this country n>«dv in HQIDU other Country. That is what the tariff is. Don't let any person confuse you with talk of "high tariff" and "low tariff." The nCO.ONNlty Is tho tariff alone, in order that wo may live free men and not like tho disoaso- riddon, humiliated, pathetic toilers in bondage. It would be as well if we bound ourselves out, like the redemptioners of our early history, if wo allow ourselves to descend to the level of Southern lOuropo, old, hopeless Southern Kuropo. A reasonable tarill on goods sent into this country mo'iiiH that, it comes from the profits of foreign shippers who have no slime in the toil. It cannot, all'ect, tho toiler there. Nothing cum elfoot him now but, reconstruction. You who work in the orchards of Southern California, work to learn and hope for the time when you yourself become an owner of as well as a contributor to production do you want to see tarill' removed on citrus fruits anil the resultant. Hood of cheaply rained fruit of Southern Kuropo supplanting our industry'! 1 As Miroly as the small sum attached t<> the sale of foreign fruits is removed, the mar kefs will turn away from Southern California, and thousands of men will have to take up their trek again, leaving the citrus industry t<i ilnfnto. NYhcrc wo are now surrounded by line homes and valuable lands, there will be apathy and poverty. The removal df tarilt on oranges and lemons j MKANS TI1K KUIN of tho California citniH industry. Think about it, you workers in the orchards and you ; growers and packers ami shippers, . you win, are dependent on this splcli did industry for your livelihood ami for the welfare of your families. No! only do we wunt to retain Ihe larill on citrus fruits, but ue wish to in crease it on lemon* at all events, in crease it until wo aie rocngniyed ahead ->f Sicily, which wo nVo not at th" present t inie.
