Before there can be any intelligent comprehension or discussion of the tariff question it must be fully understood that the primary object of import duties is to collect revenues for the maintenance of the government. It is necessary that we raiBC about a half billion dollars annually to meet current expenses. If wo do not collect this by means of the custom house, it must come from some other source, by an internal revenue, an income tax, a direct tax, or, as JERKY- SIMPSON proposes, by a single tax on the land of the farmers. The Republicans and the greater portion of the Democrats, believe the present system of customs duties to be the best. The two leading parties practically stand together on that question. Jtut they differ widely in the matter of schedules. The Republicans believe in so laying the import duties that they will be the heaviest on such articles as come in competition with Bimilar articles produced in the United States The reason for this is that we maintain in this country a much higher wage rate than is paid in any other part of the world. This is done in the interest of the working classes, it be ing a belief of the Republicans that the country as a whole is most prosperous when labor is best rewarded. Under this system wo flud that the foreigner desiriug to sell in our markets bears considerable portion of the taxation imposed by the tariff. This, though sometimes denied, is fully demon titrated by the fact that in many cases where new duties have been imposed or old rates increased, the foreigner has cut his prices by just that amount, puyiug the tariff out of his profits and selling his goods, duty paid, at the former price. The object of the protective tariff is not to increase prices but to make them stable, and protect the American producer from ruinous temporary reductions, made in the hope of bankrupting him. Tlio Democratic theory is that the tariff should be lovied upon things we cannot produce ourselves, thereby increasing their cost to the people by exactly the amount of the duty added, and leaving no grounds for dispute as to who pays the tax. There would be no protection in the Democratic tariff. It would add to the burdens of the people. Not only that, but it brings disaster to a large portion of our iaboring classes; it would close our mills and factories; it would drive mechanics and skilled labor into agriculture, still further depressing an Industry, already overcrowded; it would destroy the home market for the former, and would not open up any new markets to him. In short, it is a dangerous theory, a disastrous policy, with which the American people cannot afford to take chances. lj only as a destructive, anti-national organization, but as equally opposed to the economic welfare and prosperity of the conntry. ("Jen. is a good witness to prove either proposition. As a gallnnt i "nion soldier he had many opportunities during his prolonged army service to size up southern Democracy under its true colors, and arrayed in the proper uniform. Since the war, and in the course of an extended and successful business experience, Gen. Ai .oKit has often been called on to study the effect of Democratic policies on the industries of the country, and he fincta that party about as dangerous in one capacity as the other. The Democratic party has never succeeded in substituting a low revenue tariff for a protective one and maintaining the same for ten years withott enormously reducing the wages of labor, paralyzing great industries uud involving the country in terrible distress. On each and every occasion where it hns been able to carry out its traditional policy of "tariff reform the country has been made to suffer dreadfully. • No intelligent Democrat, familiar with hiBtory and with a decentrespect for truth, will claim that the business iutcrests of the north and west have ever been able to withstand ton years of Democratic "tariff reform." American workingmen of no class have been able to preserve their wages and employment unimpaired through so much us a single decade of a Democratic tariff for revenue only. Such tariffs when permitted to stand so as to work out their legitimate results proved indeed that they were for "revenue only." and with nothing to main tain wages or protect the rights of labor, In no case has the country prospered for ten years under.a Democratic tariff. Disaster lias been the invariable result. The man or woman who litis ever been so unfortunate as to be a witness in any important trial, or who has nt tended court trials frequently, will feel like becoming contributors to the funds of a new society formed in Lon dou. It is known as the Witnesses' Protection Society, and its objects are to protect witnesses from insult by counsel, to put the mutter of contempt of court into the hands of u jury, and to raise a fund to indemnify contumacious witnesses from pecuniary loss provided always that the questions they refuse to answer reflect upon their honor and are irrelevant to the issues of the case. The disposition so frequently manifest on the part of some lawyers to pitilessly "roust a witness, without regard to sex, condition, or the decencies of 'life," must have struck many people as deserving of rebuke, and suggestive of' the need of some remedy at law. Democracy and Business Interests. Kesponding <*> 0*° toast "The Republican Party on Giiard,!';rit . the Ann Arbor bunqm't, Gen. RUBMMJ. A. ALQKB arraigned the Democratic party not us to make the term of ofilce of the president and vice-president six years instead of four, the former to be ip- eliglble for immediate re-election. The change is to take effect March 4, 1807, which will be the commencement of the term of the president who will be chosen four years from next fall. In view of the repeated expressions of ipublic sentiment, coming from all sections and both parties, in favor of such an alteration of the constitution, the senate should submit the amendment to the states so that they may have an opportunity to express themselves officially on the subject. It is the belief of the Tribune that three- fourths of them will vote to ratify it, and that one of the evils of the American government system, tjho existence of which haB been recognized and deplored so many years, will be rooted out. This paper has always favored this proposed constitutional change. It has done so with an eye not merely to the interests of the country, but to those of the incumbents of the presidential chair, Four years is too short a term. No matter how well equipped a man may be when he enters the White House he still has much to learn and much to do before he can settle' down to the thorough and satisfactory discharge of his duties. Give him six years, the term of ofilce of a senator, and he will be able to do good service for the country. The first year of a president's term is spent in getting broke into the harness and disposing of the offlceseekers. By the time his third year has begun he cannot help looking forward to the day—which seems so near—when he will have to give way to another, lla thinks of the little he has done, of the many things he would like to see done, makes up his mind that four years is too short a term, and begins to feel the necessity of a. renomination and to work for it. The efficiency of many a president has been lessened by the fact that he could not help thinking more of a renomination than of the public interests. But when a man has a six yours' term and knows that he cannot be re-elected at its close, there will be nothing to take his mind away from his duty. It is easy to say that a president should not allow himself to think of a renomination. It is impossible for him to do otherwise unless, like Polk, he feels that he cannot live long, or, like Buchanan, he is only too glad to get out. This amendment would free the presidents from an almost ir- rcsistable temptation. Yet in spite of the favorable repori of the senate committee it is by i\6 means certain that congress will sub mit this amendment, for if it were ratified presidents wettld be no longer dependent on congressmen. The latter weuld be unable UksJaim th» patronage of their states or districts in return for their assistance in securing for the president the renomination he de sired. The "bosses" would have no federal offices to distribute among their henchmen. The power of the "machine" would be broken in a great measure. Congressmen are well aware of the consequences that would flow from the emancipation of the president, and hence it is permissible to doubt whether they will act on this amendment. But if they have any respect for the wishes of their • constituents they will submit it to the states and let them decide. A NEW DEPARTURE. In appreciation of the patronage we hfi\ r enjoyed, the management of The Grand wishes" to reciprocate. Therefore we.have inaugurated? a new system by which all who wish to take advantage of buying at money-saving prices can avail themselves by visiting Every Friday an J Saturday which we have, designated as BARGAIN DAYS. You will find in every department attactions which will prove money savers for you. Remember that the only place where ACTUAL BARGAINS And NO SHAM, is at The Dominion is running in debt at an alarming rate for so small a population. During the month of May the net debt increased 81,0T>1,S43, and the gross debt now amouuts to $290,083,u:!. r i. Adding the unearned subsidies will carry the debt to over 8300,000,000. This is a pretty heavy burden for live or six million people to carry. It contrasts strongly with the debt of the United States of about 8800,000,000, carried by a population of 05,000,000, and which is steadily diminishing. The debt of Canada is about 850 for each inhabitant, while that of the United States is only about 812.24. No wonder that the Canadian people are flocking to this country by the thousands. A long period of high taxation stares them in the face, and their ability to meet it lias been lessened by the operations of the American tariff. Our Kingman correspondent expresses a hope that the Nnws will re suine its morning edition. With us it is not a question of a morning publication, but of getting the evening edition into Kingman \\ ithin an hour of Lite time of going to press. The even ing paper is unquestionably the paper of the future. Improved facilities for the rapid collection of news, have made It possible for the evening, papers to give all the important transactions of the day. This was illustrated last when the NEWS gave its readers full accounts of all important events at Minneapolis fully twelve hours earlier than If it hod beon a morning paper. WHITKLAW RKID was neyer an ofliee seeker. While he held the important ottleo of minister to France, and worked with great vigor and obtained great results, ho gave his entire salary of 817,500 per year to his estimable wife who dispensed it among poor and needy children. What Two -Women ar4 Doing. From an Exchange. Mrs. Reed, lady manager of the world's fair for Maryland, is taking a practical means of fulfilling her mission. She has established a system of classes in American history in the state schools, has talked to the children about the objects of the fair, and now offers as a prize for the best scholar a free trip to the fair. At the recent opening of the Cheyenne and Arapahoe reservations Mrs, Margaret Newton of Caldwell, Kan., was a conspecuous figure. She and her four children had been deserted by her husband, and it was her desire to provide for her little ones that induced her to make her way with them to Kingfisher, Here she left her three oldest children, and carrying her baby set out for the reservation where a kind hearted woman took charge of it while the mother joined in the mad rush of men and horses across the line into the newly opened lands. The piucky little woman secured and held an excellent claim, and us the chivalry of the men was aroused by her courage she has received protection and aid in building her house and bringing out her children. A writer in the Ladies' Home Journal, in pointing out to the young wife the road to true happiness, says: "The woman should not take offense when the husband iB hasty or brutal." Certainly not; she should take a club. SHOULD IT BE SIX YEARS? Uonellta Thut Might Follow a Chituga lu the I 'roHldent'a Term of OfBoe. From the Chicago Tribune. When the senators get through with the two national conventions thoy ought to tako up and act on the joint resolution submitted over two weeks ago by the committee on civil service, proposing so to amend the constitution Summer Normal. The normal r opened this morning with increased interest. Professor Minnich had the opening exercises which were followed by an interesting talk on literature by Mrs. Richardson. After speaking of the merits of disciplinarian study, she read a few selected gems from Thoreau, an author whose writings receive too little attention. The physiology lesson this morning was on digestion. This class Is doing good work. The B arthmetic class spent the lesson hour in completing longitude and time. The geometry class, which is com posed of three of our brightest young gentlemen, had the pleasure of writing an examination this morning. The psychology lesson consisted of two questions presented by each member on the work passed over. This lead to a lively diBcitBsion. The physics lesson was on the subject of heat. The experiments with the hydrostatic bellows were quite interesting. On visiting the junior department we found twenty-one boys and girls. The juniors are doing good work. A. J. LU8K, Pres. C. II.
