The response was not >so (,'<><><!• Even the Kansas City Star, the editors of which claim to he (lie daddies of ' Lahdon's candidacy, rcmonslrated mildly. Sow-Clary of State: Conlell Hull traveled to Minneapolis and made a reply which .made Mr. Uimlon look silly. So new the Republican candidate has doiic an about face. After 'several weeks of discreet silence concerning tariff reciprocity he returned to the subject yesterday at Albuquerque, N. M. Di;l he renew his pledge lo'i-cpcal the reciprocal tar- ill' law? lie did not. Hu said: "\\VKcpublicaus will so conduct the reciprocal trade negotiations as to reopen foreign trade channels in such a way as not to penalize the A'merican fanner or the industrial producer- and workman. This can bu done and it will he done, once 1 am elected." It can be dune and it is being done by a Democi atiu a'Jmiiiislration, though'not us rapidly as some of us would like. We believe, however, with W. L. Clayton, J.iines Warburg and the New York Times tlu.u there is a KOod deal more hope for further progress in that direction fronv : an; ail- imnistrutiojv that freirts a|- Iii.asT-,t6 111;- dtirijtand (.hat trade is a two-wl*^ proposition thnn from a party (the Ke- piiblican} and an individual (Mr. Lan- ckn) obseshtd with the notion that in some mystciious fashion we can find a way profitably to dispose of our Mil plus coHon, wheat, tobacco, pork aiii nianuluctiiral Roods without taking anything in exchange for them. For Mr. Laiulon, although he now pays, lip service to the principle of trade •'reciprocity, cites increased im])Gils as evidence that the reciprocity program is not working properly. As a matter of fact, of course, it would be a complete failure if it did not result in .'increased'imports, for only by selling to us can OHV foreign customers obtain the buying power to increase their purchases from us. Any vomim who \\ould tell her ago would tell amtlnne. — Panic It: Go.tchrcl, movie nc- tiets, who is reported wed to Charlie Chaplin. OUT OUR WAY Mr. Hoowr's CJiargvx on Herbert Hoover's speech al Philadelphia the other night in which the former president, accused the Hoosevi'li administration of juffgliii).; its books to deceive the public as to New I.leal expenditures, the' St. l.onis I'ost-IMspalch say.i "no man of character or principle, narlicnlarly no' one who holds the special responsibility of an cx-presiueiil, would go before the public with so serious an indictment unless it were well-grounded." In other words, aironliiij; to the Post-Dispatch, it must be I rue or Herbert wouldn't have said it. We wonder. Headers of the Courier News who listened to Mr. lloovor over the radio, if any did, nifty perhaps recall the ex- pre.sidcnt's reference to the Hoos'tvcl- tian parable of the old man who fell oil' the dock and was rescue;! some fhree and n half years aj,'o but who now hliinifc.s his reseller for the loss of the silk hat he was wearing. The old man's present resentment, said Hoover, may be due to the fact that lie .suspects he was pushed oil' the dock in order that bis rescuer might make himself a heVo by saving him. The man who would make a dirty crack like that would not let "the special responsibility O f an. ex-president" cramp his style in a partisan political speech.
