Every indication points fBvonibly for a strong bulwark in tariff on California products. John Dul/ell of Hie Wiiys and Moons Committee has stated that "if tho CnliforniatiH need greater protection on cltruH produotH thc.v will get, if,." Which moans that our representatives must oonvinro tho that it is proper and just that tin; present rate on oriingCH should lie maintiiiricf], and an incTPiiso lovi«d ori t.ho lemons coining in from foreign ports. Chnirman Herono Payne of this cnmrnitteo states that tho tariff is to bis revised along protection linns. This republicans have control of the committee and stand for protection, while the Democrats on the committee state that they stand for tariff for revenue only, which statement has a familiar ring to it. California lias some strong men at Washington looking after her interests, and !t is safe to iiiy that no Industry now being built np under the present, protection laws will bo torn down by an injudicious and diaastrous downward revision. It is well, however, to follow the workings of the. Ways and Means committee carefully from day to dny, and be ready Individually to bring pressure to boar in tho interest* of this Btnte if necessary. For this nan lie done, Wo Lave elected protection representatives, and other men are there in the interests of the great fruit, industries. The atmosphere surrounding the entire work of organization for the coming term seetDH to exude kiudlinoHS toward the protective policy. It means everything to California, We will watch the Ways and Means committee. ' • ' The Laborer's Share. Wo cannot lot thin remark pasa without challenge. Representative Ubnloll of Illinois, n member of tho Ways and Means committee, said: "For three weeks this committee lias conducted these hearings, and all those who appeared before it did HO voluntarily. No onu was asked. Tho testimony has uniformly shown that increased dution will not accrue to tho benefit of the laborer, and that, a (k'ureaso in duties will not accrue to tho benefit of tho consumer." Whore there are now live bundled laborers working a pact of the time in the vicinity of Covina, there will bo one thousand laborers working all the thno promptly aftor an innrtmse on lemons, and tho asHiivancc that the prtmiml orange tariff is not, to bo diHturbod. This is one item on tho tariff list, the orango and lemon tariff. Tho laboror is iminodiatoly hcnoflttod lion-. Lands now producing nothing but hay mid grain will be planted to oitriiH fruits. Dousn't this boniilit tho laboror immediately? Isn't tills also n fact as regards all industries? Protection of an industry moans immediate prosperity for tho laboring man, more immodiato than is the return to tho owner of tho industry. UnU|iic Social livening.
