SCHEDULE K PROTECTS
THE CHEAP FOREIGNERS
While the American Working-
men are Driven From Em-
ployment by Low W ages
Special to the Enterprise.
Washington, Jan. 23—Driven from
pillar to post lor expl .nations to just-
ify the Payne-Aldrich tariIT tax,
tand-pat protectionists long ai>o
abandoned the theory that the for-
eigner pays the tariff and now stand
on the assurance to the people that a
prohibitive tarilf is (or the "protect-
ion" of "American" workingmen.
When Schedule K, which placcs a
heavy tax on everv article of woolen
clothing worn by every man, woman
and child in the nation, was up for
discussion: Aldrich. Lodge, Smoot
and other special privilege servers of
ihe Senate and House, declared their
princlDal motive in levying a tax on
these articles was to ' protect" the
"American" workingmen in the
Schedule K become a law, the prices
of all kinds of clothing made wholly
or in part of who have advanced, and
the combination of manufacturers
who contributed heavily to Republican
campaign funds to have Schedule K
framed and passed, have made mil-
lions. But how have the"American''
workingmen bet-n "protected?"
The strike of 30,00(1 lextile workers
at Lawerence, Mass., one of rainy
Bimillar illustrations which cou d be
given throws some light on the sub-
ject. It puts the lie to the i-tatement
that Schedule K protects the "Amer-
ican" worklngman, because the in-
formation shows there arc scarcely
any "American" workers left in the
woolen manufacturing industry to
protect. The mill owners have "pro-
tected" the "American" workingmen
by driving them from their employ-
ment with low wages and unbearable
worning conditions, and by fill ng
their places with contract laborers
from 8"U'hern Europe. Fifty-two dif-
ferent nationalities are represenied
by the strikers at Liwerence, and
forty-five languages are spoken there.
Bayonets and decreased wages for
the men, women and children wo kers
instead of the workman's paradi-e
pictured by Aldrich, Lodge and Smoot
is the definition of Schedule K ttiat
the mill workers at Lawerence un-
learning by actual experience.
Bringing In Cheap Labor
In view of the strike of textile
workers at Lawerence, Mass., it is in-
teresting to know how the woolen
mill owners attract cheap labor to
their mills. Congressman A. P. Gard-
ner of Massachu-setts, stand-pat re-
publican, while speaking, not on the
subject of protection but of immigra-
tion, or.e day in the House, contribut-
ed some valuable information to the
subject without intending to. "for
example," said Mr. Gardner."suppose
1 am a Syrian conducting a Syrian
boarding house in the city of Lowell,
Mass. Perhaps some mill tends down
to me for hands. I furnish them at a
somewhat lower rate of wages than
is expected by ordinary citi/.in help.
It advances the money for Syrian
emigrants to come from the old coun-
try, I tell them that if they do not
pay me back the money I advanced I
will have them arrested; that they
must hand over the full wages that
they get in the mill. They are held
In terror of the police. Meanwhile I
take all their wages while I feed them
and keep them alive just a* 1 would
fe< d and keepa horse alive ih u I had
imporied for use in a livery stable."
Killed In An Altercation
La-t bun lai's Oklaboman brought
the news o -.or man thaton Saturd i>
afternoon in his store at Temple, Ok-
la., Hon. H. Betty, formerly a mem-
ber of the Board of Regents of the
University, had during the course of
an altercation with one J. W. Polk,
who formerly was in th-i empl >y of
Mr. Betty, had struck Poll; knocking
him down fractured h s skull, either
from b ow or from contact with the
cement floor Mr. Polk lived on y a
short time. He leaves a wife and four
Mr. Betty was taken into custody
by the Sheriff at once. Betty is well
known to many Norman people who
will regret to learn of his trouble. "

MONEY AND INTEREST
The paramount question in the next
state election will no doubt be the
Financial Question, the politicians
can no longer keep It In the back
ground and divert the attention of
the honest people from.it, by talking
about a minor and frivolous matters,
it might almost truthfully be said
that the people are divided in two
classes on this question to-wit: Bor-
rowers and Lenders, much to be re-
gretted the borrowing class is largely
in the majority, yet the lenders
elect practically all the officers, both
state and coun y.
The rate of interest being charged
for money in this state is appalling
and we have no law to protect the
people aga'nst the Usurious Practice
of the money Lender. Do the good
people of this county know that they
are being charged one-fourth or
twenty-five per centum, per aauutn
for the monei thev borrow from the
money lenders? Let me illustrate, a
man comes to town to borrow $.">00 00
he gives a note for $025 00 and gets
$500 00 and mark you that in addition
that note draws 10 per cent annum,at
the end of the year how much will
he pay for his$")00 00; let the people
make the calculation, yes the people
What the People Are Saying ami
Proposing To Do About It
To elect men thit will represent
their interest In the next Legislative
assembly and pass some laws to put
stop to such outrageous practices, a
law something like this: All con
tracts for a greater rate of intercut
than ten per centum per annum shall
be void as to principal and interest
and the general assembly shall pro-
hibit the same by law, and further no
p -rson or corporation shall directly
or Indirect y, take or receive in money
good-, things in action, or any other
valuable thing any greater sum
value for the loan or forebearance of
money or goods, things in action, or
any other valuable thing, than ten
per centum per annum.
For some time the Folk-Clark con-
troversy in Missouri has been at-
tracting nation wide attention be-
cause of the fact that both men are
aspiring for nomination as President-
ial candidate on the Democratic tick-
Ex Gov. Folk has claimed the sup-
port of the Missouri delegates by-
reason of a Slate endorsement of his
candidacy several months since. Mr.
Clark and his friends were not inclin-
ed to (-uffer this endorsement to stand
and som? bittern ss between the
friends of the two men in Missouri
has been aroused.
Ex-Gov. Folk took steps last Friday
to setile this controversy by saying
that if Speaker Clark would agree he
would let the people in the State
again decide which of them they fav-
ored supporting for the presidential
nomination, and the one failing to
receive the endorsement of the State
to withdraw from the presidential
contest entirely. To this proposition
Speaker Clark has consented and by
its terms one or the other will he put
out of the presidential contest by
the action of the Joplin Convention
which meets February 20th.
If Gov. Folk should win in this con-
st, it will be a decided victory for
the Progressive wing of the Demo-
cratic party. The struggle in Mis-
souri is likely to be a strenuous one
between the Clark and Folk democrats
for the next six weeks and the way
it terminates very largely foresbaw-
dow the nominee of '.he National Con-
vention. it Gov. Folk is successful
the National ticket is likely to read
Wilson and Folk and should Clark
win Gov. Harmon's nomination in
June is foreshadowed.

40n0 letters sent out to leading pro-
fis-ional business, office holders and
committeemen, a carefully selected

sentiment in favor ol Gov. Wilson

afely Wilson counties and the senti-
ment for cov. Wilson strong in 53
other counties. In the farming dis-
tricts of tbe State Gov. Wilson was
decidedly the favorite.

ably enthused by Judge Rogers' ad-
dress and all promised to bring active

ence in behalf of tbe nomination of
