"This tariff bill," said Senator McCumber, "when approved by both the Senate and the House, will be the first national tariff bill in our history. Throughout the preparation of this measure the .Senate Finance commit tee has endeavored to lay the foun- dation for an era of nation-wide pros- peritv. Increased prosperity is but the expression of increased produc- tion without a prosperous consuming pubxic. "The American market is the one great important market for American pioaac is. i ne .-merican people con- i sume more than 90 per cent of every- thine they produce. The producer is . , . . , . therefore most vitallv interested m not only maintaining but in increasing the purchasing power of every individual consumer. With this thought in mind the public will recognize this bill as a consumers tariff. Its object is to restore the buying power of the consumer. The Senate Finance committee is convinced that the first step in increasing the individual's ability to buy is to provide work for the worker and markets for the workers' and farmers products. "The Senate Finance committee has given every opportunity to all representatives of American industries, importers, labor and agriculture, to present facts relating to their business and conditions confronting, them today. As a result of this general economic survey supported by government reports and investigations, a tariff bill has been written which will, when accompanied by reasonable reduction in transportation and production costs, bring prosperity to the whole country by providing markets for producers and work for consumers. "We cannot import our prosperity. the United We must make it in States. But there can be no prosper- j ity unless and until the American pro- j ducer and consumer are protected against unfair, discriminatory com petition of foreign countries, it is t false and short-sighted economy to reduce the output of our factories and thereby reduce the purchasing power , , . . . of our own people simply because we , - . , i can purchase foreign-made articles , 1 . cheaper. Our people must earn money before they can spend it eith- er at home or abroad. The fundamental principle of tariff legislation, therefore, at this time is to provide work, to increase production and restore the consumers buying power. OUR DUTY TO OUR OWN That very sensible thinker, Vice President Coolidge, speaking to a Republican gathering at Lansing, Michigan, laid down in clear terms the first law of a nation's duty. The law is not different from that of personal duty. Even the Man of Galilee, preaching love to all the world, said, "Thou shalt love they neighbor as thy- i elf. "As theyself He said. The first duty of the individual is love of self, in the highest sense, a love of self that will not suffer one to do wror.n. So says Mr. Coolidge, with a nation. Its first duty is to itself and its own people. Before we can minister to other nations, we must ; j j ; j j ; i , ; 1 i H e Ha Mad e Good Wiord has been received here of the sudden death of Lawrence McDonnell 'at his home in Muskegon, Mich. He has been suffering for several days with eresypelas which terminated in his death. He is a son of Bernard McDonnell of this city. On account of his advanced age, the father could not gp to the funeral. Vint Cone was operated on at the Marion hospital yesterday. The op- eration is reportea to nave Deen suc- cessful and Mr. Cone is resting well. The two newspapers of Matthews have been consolidated.

We have not been forgetful of our necessary relationship to those other nations, but neither have we forgotten that "our own people must be strong before they can strengthen other natVns." This regard for ourselves is not selfishness, but sense. It is efficiency in the highest degree. We are going ahead with the adjustment of our own affairs. When they shall have been put in order, we shall be able the better to aid others, and it is not to be doubted that we shall willingly and much more efficiently aid them. Carpers, who would have us bungle through somehow with plans for the amelioration of mankind, while we are ourselves greatly in need of amelioration of our ovn condition, should ponder well these words of this sane man.

The country never has associated Miss Russell with ser- jious parts. Still there is no reason why she should be denied sober at- tention and she says things not to be ignored, when she asserts that Ameri- ' l; T that the stories of suffering humanity .l J, , . v ;m Europe and oppression "all have , . . , , . . the dollar sign back of them, that it . . - , , t, . izations financed for the sole purpose of "making money out of what they call humanity, and when, finally she warns against letting down the im migration bars.
