THE POUTIOAIi ACTIVITY OF MB. 'WTLSOjr. There is said to be considerable surprise in Washington because Woodrow Wilson has telegraphed the Democratic Governor of Colorado urging the appointment of Hon. Huston Thompson to a vacancy in the United States Senate. Why should there be surprise? The former President ought at least to be allowed the privilege of an ordinary member of the rank and file of the party, in influencing the leadership of that party, urthermore, he knows Mr. Thompson thoroughly as a member of the Federal Trade Commission, having appointed him to that position several years ago. He knows his fitness for tbe Senate. The fact of it is that most Demo- citizenship, outside the Democratic party, wilV rejoice that Mr. Wilson's health has so improved that he can take his. normal place in tbe counsels of his.'party. Now that his wonderful ~brain and sound judgment are functioning in a restored physical strength, no one should condemn bis political activity. It is natural and wholesome.--St. Louis Star. HOW TAUH^F CAUSED MSB I2S T SUGAR. Apologists for the Republican administration are now attempting to prove that a shortage of Cuban sugar and not the Fordney-McCumber profiteers' tarifl of 1.7648 cents a pound is responsible for the present high price of this common necessity of American homes. The history of this increase in price shows some coincidences that have compelled attention and provoked comment. On the first day o£ May, 1922, a couple of weeks after the Pordney- McCumber bill had been presented to the Senate with its rate (afterward lowered) o£ 1.84 cents a pound on Cuban sugar and 2.3 a pound on all other foreign kinds, the retail' price of sugar averaged 6J_ cents a pound in some fifty cities of the country. It became apparent that the FoTdney-McCirmber bill was going to pass in spite of all opposition j'm2S-7t (First Insertion March 2S, 192'i).) XOTICE TO BIDDERS.

Witness my hand this 27th day of March, 1923. ' The price of sugar rose with the hopes of those who wanted a high tariff on it. The advance in the price of sugar from May 1 to August 1 was rapid and continuous. On August 1 the price had reached an average of S.I cents a pound. About this time an attack was made by Democratic Senators, including Senator Harrison (Miss.), on the 1 .sugar schedule of the bill. There were several attempts to reduce the proposed attempts to reduce the proposed duty. The public was aroused. The price of sugar declined a small fraction of a cent. On the passage of the bill (September 22, the price began to mount and has JEWELL MILLER, City Auditor. (First Insertion March 2S, 1923.) 3VOTICE TO BIDDERS.
