Pre-' in in ins will be awarded. Anyone wishing to display chr.v- duties, say their advocates, should not be "above the lowest rate that will yield the largest amount of revenue." The .American mind hah fluctuated both in the quality arid the earnestness of its tariff belief. In 18112 dissolution of the Union WHS threatened because of excessive protection. In IHIS.'J a compromise reduction was made. Kollovvintr ihe business collapse of 18:'", a protective tariff was passed in 181'.!. Four years later a '•'revenue tariff with incidental protection" was adopted.

So little concern was felt, in tho tariff question in 1872 that tho Democratic party and a bunch of Republicans got together under the lead of the greatest of protectionists, Horace Clreek'y, in a futile attempt to defeat (leu. (Jrant's re-election, anrl eight years later, though the tariff was fought over in the campaign, tire (Democratic candidate for president declared it a local issue JJut in 1HH4 the election of a Democratic president and House of .Representatives brought the question to tho front agnin. The Mills bill, a revenue measure, passed the House but failed in the Republican Senate. Mr. Cleveland wan defeated for re- eleutiou in 1S88 and the Republicans, having gained control of Congress, feeling that if the tariff were to be revised, it should bo done by its friends, passed the high protective McKinley bill a few months before tho election of ]H!)-J. The Democrats then being .successful with Mr. Cleveland, again set to work "tinkering with tho tarifl." Jioth houses of Congress being Democratic, a real Democratic tariff should have been the result. H.O')IQ| hing like that was tho Wilson bill as it went to tho Senate, hut there, under tho management of the Democratic loader, (Jorman of Maryland, it was changed into such a thing that tho president: denounced it and would not. sign it.

We are in a very strong position this fall. We own all our own goods outright. We feel that we would rather seil goods at cost than see our trade go elsewhere. We have tried very hard to build business upon the basis of good values. It is, however, useless for one store alone to try to draw trade. We must co-operate and have the assistance of the ranchers and property owners as well 1 The next two years Covina will either go ahead, or sink to its eternal sleep.
