Our Ticket Taft For President Perkins For Senator Sherman For Vice-Prcsidcnt McLachlan For Kepresentative 1 their earnest endeavor to retain tbn present duty of one cent per pound Inn oranges, tirirJ thf present duty on nuts, deciduous fruits, wool, live i stock, rrisitis, currants, etc. The California growers havi sl/ong opposition friirn people who are interested in tho importation of foreign >fruils and nuts. J3nt, with tho pie«' erit united Republican Congressional delegation fnim California, whose ; members have gainer! fiorne little ' prestige arid influence in Washington, we are assured that our citrus 'fruits, and, indeed, all othrsr interests will be protected. On the, other hand, a Democratic victory in November means, to all intents and purposes, the placing of California products on the free list, with the natural results of depreciation in the values of our groves and vineyards, at least fifty per cent, and tho hardships and misery whioh would necessarily follow the inability of tho growers to maintain the present wage scale. It, is to tho interest of the grower and tho wage earner alike to ponder these facts well before casting his ballot in November. To be on the right side of a question of morals in a community brings • satisfaction which no personal ;itt;ick, no matter how violent, can destroy. The Keal Issue of the Campaign. Judge Alton IJ. I'aiker, the Democratic candidate for president four years ago, says the tariff is the most important issue of the present political campaign. This is eminently true, both great parties stand pledged to it.B revision. Moth candidates for President of the United .States have signified their intention, if elected, of calling a special session of Congress, to bn convened March 4, U)t)f), for the purpose of enacting a new tariff law to supercedo tho JJingley Act. Caliioinla has hundreds of articles intimately affected by the tariff. Every branch of our great, industrial, agricultural, horticultural, vitaoultural arid mercantile life is affected by it. Hoiithern California is more particularly concerned, of course, by the action which will be taken on our citrus fruits, raisins, currantH, wirio, olives and nuts. But an indiscriminate downward revision of the present duty • on wool, cattle, hides and the many other products of our state, would work indescribable damage to oui 1 prosperity. It is tho intention of tlio Democratic- party, publicly and privately expressed, to attack the tariff with ruthless hands, sparing nothing, if they gain control. Kvcry Democratic vote therefore will lie a blow, not only to the groat citrus fruit, industry, but to every other branch of our endeavors which would thus be thrown into competition with the peon labor of Mexico, the coolie labor of Asia, and tho servile Inlinr of tho West Indies, South America and Knropn. Add to this tho cheaper transportation afforded by ocean lines over the long railroad carriage from California to our eastern markets and it will be seen that a downward revision of the tariff on our California products will bring disaster to our population. Tho Republican party stands pledged to revise the tariff and to make necessary corrections mid additions to tho DiiiKlcy tariff law, which, in the main, hah been successful in fostering tho resources of our country nnd protecting the labor of our pimple. TiiiirM and conditions change, however. All hard and fast, rules, and tariffs must be modified to meet the varying conditions of the times. It is tho intention of the Republican party to correct any abuses ttiat may have crept, i". 1)ut '' als " '"• tends to givi« every industry and every interest in this broad land a square deal.

Mr. Orange (/rower, can yon afford to take 70c a box less for your oranges than you now receive? If not, maintain the tariff by voting for the Kepublican candidates. Assessment Notice.
