OBSERVATIONS By j J. O. DAVIS : The chief beneficiary of the high tariff policy of the United States has been the manufacturer, and the chief victim has been, and is, the farmer. Perhaps the leading example In American history ol the triumph of propaganda Is the general acceptance by the people of the high tariff policy of the Republican party. That policy has done fewer of the thlnfes it was claimed It would do, and more of the things It was claimed it would not do that any other policy in American history. Mendoiind County's Piormr Nempapef\ ^ PubUshed for 71 Years DISPATCH-DEMOCRAT OFFICE: 120 E. Standley Street i/^^eekly Digest lit Hiendoeino County News Gity, Rural and County News From Every Section of Mendocino County. DISPATCH-DEMOCRAT: Phone UkUh Number O—N—B The high tariff advocates based their plea for higher and ever higher tariffs upon their desire to protect the American worklngman from competition with "the pauper labor of Europe." That language is theirs. All those who can remember the political campaigns of even the nineties will luiow that no Republican orator ever failed to make a tearful plea for the protection of the American worklngman against the degrading consequences of competition with "the pauper labor of Europe." That made the American work­ lngman feel Important and superior and also caused him to recognize the keen perception of the Republicans, which enabled them to .see In him a .superior Individual who ought to be kept separate and apart from the "pauper labor" of Europe, or any other place. It also brought a warm glow to Americans generally, to observe this brotherly interest manifested by these Important people in the welfare of the working man, and the high tariff advocates always got what they wanted. VOLUME LXXI MOVIES After the American wo»kingman had been thus duly and adequately "protected," the aforesaid "pauper labor of Europe" was recruited in Europe, brought over by the shipload and put to work in the steel mills where they received one dollar and fifty cents for a twelve hour day. That Ls the sort of real protection the American worklngman received from the beneficiaries of the tariff jjollcy of the Republican party and any change in hL-; condition has been brought about solely by his own economic strengtli acquired through organization. And yet, millions of Americans firmly believe 'that this high tariff of the William Mc Kinley days l.s what "made America great," and nothing .short of an education on the subject could caviEc them to change their minds. Also, there are many farmers—chief victims of the policy —who believe in the policy as firmly as any member of any fundamentalist religious sect believes that the earth Ls only 6000 yeears old. Despite the fact that the Republican high tariff policy stands Indicted for the failure to do the things It promised to do. and has wrought havoc In quarters where its beneficence was guaranteed by its advocates, it has become so firmly Imbedded in American economy, and is so firmly entrenched politically that it would probably be unwise for the farmer to try to do anything to effect any fundamental changes In the tariff system, so probably the wise thing Cor the farmer to do would be to try to himself get under the tariff umbrella and share the benefits from which he is now excluded. WILLITS TO HAVE NEW $25,000 THEATRE WILLITS, Dec. 13.—The biggest building permit granted In Wllllts in a number of years was Issued Monday to the Redwood Theatres, Incorporated, San Francisco, to build a new theatre at the estimated cost of $25,0055 With furnishings the total cost of the investment will be $50,000. The contractor Is Alfred J. Hopper of San Francisco. Ten men under the supervision of Foreman Larson, started excavating for *he building following Lssuance of the permit. The structure will be 50x136 feet, with concrete side walls and stucco front. There will be no balcony. Both architecture and ^furnishings will be of modernistic design and the latest acoustical plaster will be used. Construction will be rushed, the company hoping to have the building completed within four months if weather permits. The $25,000 permit raised the city's total to $80,000, which still Us very much short of last year. Other permits are expected, however, that may bring up the total. TUBERCULOSIS Compensation Claimed by Nurse Contracted at State Hospital, Basis of Claim DISPATCH DEMOCRAT, UKAH, CALIFORNIA, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1939 NUMBtSR 13 Congressmen from the industrial dLstrlcts used to pat the congressmen from the farm regions on the back and tell them: "Why certainly your people are entitled to protection for agriculture; of course, how much tariff do you want? We will give it to you." So they put a tariff of 42 cents a bushel on wlieat, and during the latter part of the period of peering around the corner with Mr. Hoover, the standard American price of wheat was 25 cents per bushel, and It actually sold In some remote sections for 10 cents. But we win have to adjourn again until next week, same time, same place.
