FARMER AND THE TARIFF.
Protectionists have sought to make
an ally of the farmer in their fight on
the Democratic tariff bill. A part of
Senator Simmons' opening speech on
the bill was devoted to answering the
specious objections that have been
raised In regard to the features of the
measure affecting farmers.
After enumerating the things placed
cn the free list for the farmers' bene-
fit explaining the purposes of the bill
Senator SimmonB said:
"It untaxes the things the farmer
employs in making the products he
sells abroad. It untaxes the raw ma-
terials of the manufacturer. It large-
ly un'axes the material used in the
construction of his plant and the ma-
chinery needed for its equipment to
enable them to meet their foreign com-
petitor on more advantageous terniB
not only at home but abroad.
short It seeks In such ways as
are open to establish upon a broader
basis that spirit of comity on which
international good will rests to remove
hampering restrictions to broaden the
basis of international trade and enable
the American producer to take advant-
age in greater measure than has been
porsible under existing tariff condi-
tions of our great national opportunity
in the market places of the world."
DECREASE IN BEEF CATTLE.
Judson C. Welliver Washington
correspondent of Farm and FireBlde
writing an article In the current is-
sue of that publication entitled "The
Farmer and the Future" publishes
many Interesting facts. An extract
from his article follows:
"In six years past there has been a
decline of over thirty per cent in the
number of beef cattle- in the country.
At the beginning of 1007 there were
by the department of estimates 51-
51fi0y beef cattle in the country
while on the Bame date this year the
number was only Sl.n.ooo. Not only
this. Over half of the meat animals
are killed under government inspec-
tion. The number of them thus killed

7:? thirteen per Cent less In the first
three months of 1913 than In the like
period of 1912. Here is the statistical
dope on it:
"First three months of 1912 1733-
8S2 cattle 458309 calves 10149088
hogs 3040290 sheep; total 160011

593 cattle 398913 calves 8885421
hogs 3036548 shep; total 13916398.
"A steady decrease right down the
line. It can't be accounted for on any
assumption that the market has been
bad for we all know prices and de-
mand have been highly favorable.
Thus at Chicago the 1912 average
price for native steers was $7.95 as
against $6.50 in 1911 an increase of
over twenty-two per cent. Hogs
showed an Increase from $0.70' to
