THE TARIFF GRAFT AND THE CONSUMER HOW THE GAME IS WORKED. Witness This Confession of a Protected Republican Manufacturer. "1 have made money every year out of the Tariff Graft. Not much, but still a little. • j "The Tariff Barons raised their price $50,0*00 to me. 1 made j a charge against the jobber of $60,000, and 1 know that he | charged more than $7u,ooo for the $00,000 he paid me. Before : .reaching the consumer, the $50,nO() charge became about $100,- j 000 to be paid by the agricultural consumer. i f "When Congress gave ns forty-five per cent, we needing only twenty per cent, they got us a Congressional permit, if not an Invitation, to consolidate, form one great trust and advance our price twenty-five per cent, being the difference between the twenty per cent needed and the forty-five per cent given-"—H. K. Miles, Chairman of the Tariff Committee of the National Association of Manufacturers, and head of the Agricultural Implement Trust, in American Industries, November 15 I!ui7. The Republicans say, "Let the Tariff be Revised by its Vriends," Payne ana Dalzell of the Republican Congressional Ways and Means Committee. .Hear what Mr. Miles has to say further, in American Industries for April, 1IIUS: "The people instruct and trust Congress to grant just, opiiitable and ample protection. Congress trusts the Ways and Means Committee. This Committee trusts such persons as Mr. lial/eil, and they-they trust the trusts!" WHO CAN (IKST 111C TRl'STED HONESTLY TO KKVISK THE TARIFF The trust ridden Republican Party or the consistently low-tariff Democratic Party? < j v . j VOTE FOR BRYAN AND KERN can voters to the iniquity of the existing tariff system, surely the confession in the letter referred to ought to at least challenge attention and in* vltft thoughtful investigation. HALLOWE'EN AT THE > ST. FRANCIS CHURCH. • w^___ (Communicated. Friday evening will be the evening of all evenings. It will be Hallowe'en at St. Francis hall. Surprises many and great indeed will be given by the children during the evening's entertainment. The beautiful new scenery "I have usea unamoenain's- Colic,. Cholera and uiarrnoea Kemedy since It was nrsi introduced to tbe public in 1872, and have never found one instance where a cure was not speedily effected by its use. I have been a commercial traveler for eighteen years and never start out on a trip without this, my faithful friend," says H. 3 Nichols of Oakland, Ind. Ter. When a man has used a remedy for thirty-five year he knows its value and is competent to speak of it. For sale by Batr Bros., Bakersfleld; Kern Drug Co., j has arrived and the rehearsals are being held each afternoon from 3:30 to 5 p. m. The chorus of sixty voices, the illustrated songs, not on canvas but real acting, the coon songs by day and night tableaux pretty indeed, are a few o'f the numbers c>n the program. A large attendance is expected, since the sale of tickets has been exceptionally good. The admission of 25 cents to enjoy a perfect evening with the children cannot but I be admitted to be small. All friends j of the children are most cordially in- I vited tf| come to St. Francis hall Fri! day evening, October 30th, where a | Hallowe'en scene is to be had that will excel anything of the kind ever witnessed in this city. The pumpkin boys and girls will give a few of the latest |u Hallowe'en sports. * E. H.

Here is the evidence; K. II. Miles, chairman of ihe. tariff commit lee of the Na'ional Association' jof Manufacturers, n m i head of , m .' | agricultural implement trust, wrote an 1 article which will be found in tbe 1 American Industries of November i:,. 1H07, n paper which is now supporting tbe Republican ticket. From that article these strik'nr slaicijienis are taken: 1 have made money every year in of the tariff graft. Not much, i,,,, still a little.

When Congress gave us forty-flv per cent, we neoding only twenty pet cent, they gave us a Congressional permit, If not an invitation to consol iilato, form one great trust and advance our prices twenty-five per cent being the difference between the twenty-five per cent needed and tho forty-five per cent given, On August 23, 1907, this same E. H. Miles, chairman of the tariff committee of the National Association of Manufacturers, wrote to Senator For- alter a letter in which he said: "About forty per < nt of all the members of our association. \vho have | by correspondence proiuiuuced for re- I vision, declare in their letters that j i heir own schedules may properly be j i educed fifty P'T cent m- mope without jhiirt to their respective industries or 1 i'< (lie country at large." I How exorbitant must be this preci- 'ous tariff, fostered by the Republican! Party, when even forty per cent of its ; lieut'llclaries, frightened by tbe rising 1 ' tide of public sentiment, admit that ' , their own schedules "may properly' I"- reduced 50 per cent np more with- oiit hurt to their respective industries, or to ihe country at large."
