A comparison of the amount paid
for rents on inadequate (luarters for
the county office with the small ad
vance necessary to create a sinking
fund for the bond-Issue will convince
any unprejudiced mind of the practic
ability of building a court house In Vin-
ita. The taxpayers of the county
should realize that so long as they pay
rent they are getting nothing to show
for their money while If they were
paying that money into the sinking
fund they will be paying rent to them-
A KINDERGARTEN TARIFF LESSON
(Senator Aldrich Senator Lodge
and a few other prominent republican
leaders now declare that the republi-
can platform did not promise a down-
ward revision of the tariff.)
What was the chief issue In the
campaign for the republican iioiuina
tion for tbe presidency?
What was the leading element of
strength in the condidacy of Mr. Taft
who secured the nomination over a
number of rivals?
His stand for revision and especial-
ly his specific declaration for down-

form promise the country tariff r-
Ilecause public sentiment and econ-
omic conditions demanded revision.
Was not the demand for tariff rv!s-
ion manifested in every part of the
country necessarily a demand for
It was without a doubt.
Was not the promise

mention of direction a
Unquestionably it was.
k Vas not the promise to make the
tariff approximate the differences be-
tween the cost of production at home
and abroad a promise of lower duties?
It certainly was.
In the making of the present tariff
bill has any respectable- effort b?en
made by either tbe senate or the iiour.e
committee to ascertain the differences
between the cost of production at
home and abroad or to use stu b dif-
ferences as a general basis of new
schedules according to the explicit
promises of the platform?
What name would you give to the
attempt of party leaders to repudiate
the promises of their party and to deny
to the people what the people were de-
liberately led to expect?

biuation of democrats and progressive
republicans. Tbe subject is on every
one's tongue Just now.
It Is said there Is a plan on foot to
reject tbe conference report on the
bill ami force a second and possibly
even a third conference with the view
if cmnnelline concessions In various
It is impossible to say whether the
bill will be defeated in this manner.
It all depends on the number of re-
publicans that can be aligned with the
democrats. The latter will vote al
most solidly to reject the conference
. Ttiere has been no conference be
tween the democratic leaders and the
progressive republicans on the subject
The nosition of tbe democrats Is: "We
are against the bill at every jump
in the road and will vote against it
almost to a man. If you progressive
republicans of the bouse will vote with
us we can reject tbe conference report
and compel improvements."
The leaders of the house insurgents
have made a canvass. When a republl
can congressman returns to Washing
ton after a short visit in his district
he is immediately approached by the
insurgents. He is asked to vote with
the democrats. In some instances
republicans have promised to vote
against the conference report on the
ground their constituents demand such
action only to later inform the insur-
gents that circumstances have arisen
which require them to vote favorable
to the passage of the tariff bill. The
secret of the change in heart of such
members is that "Uncle Joe" lias seen
them and by threats or promises
coaxed them back into line.
The democratic leaders it can be
stated on the best of authority doubt
very much whether enough republi
can insurgents will vote with them to
respect the conference report. Some
of the Insurgents however are more
sanguine. Said a progressive repub
lican senator to tbe writer: " If a
vote should be taken on tbe tariff
bill today in the bouse the measure
would be defeated. But Cannon Aid-
rich forces aware of this condition.
are active now and by the tune the
reiort of the conference Is submitted
for a vote it is my opinion that en-
ought Insurgents will either be bought
or frightened into line to pass the
A leader among the house insur
gents who is just now devoting mucn
of bis time to working up sentiment
in favor of a combination believes the
plan will be successful. His view is
When the house was organized the
combination of insurgents and demo
crats lacked just four votes of enough
to defeat Cannon for the speakership.
There were a number of votes which
were pledged against Cannon in the
event that enough other cou'd be
found to make with these- a majority
of the house. The total of democratic
and republican votes thus pledged
lacked Just four of enough to defeat
the speaker. For the lack of the final
four a number which were ready to
enter a successful combination never

The Ameer't. Grim Humor.
Although in every way milder than
his father Hibib Ullah occasional!
manifests a humor no less grim as
was lately disclosed by his chief body
servanl Ahmed Itashid. This worthy
whose duty it Is to take care of the
royal wardrobe was becoming neglect-
ful when one morning Habib Ullah no
ticed a black scorpion whose sting is
unusually agonizing in a boot that he
had been about to put on. Summon-
ing Ahmed to his side the Ameer
complained that the boot pinched hi
foot and . ordered the servant to
stretch it by drawing it on his foot.
The pain of the bite was not the more
readily forgotten from the fact that
nothing of much consequence could ba
done to relieve it.

I'aris witnessed a spectacle of such
pomp and magnificence as was seen
today at the funeral of H. A. Cliaiuh-
aid the late wealthy merchant. Half
a million people crowded the streets
along which the cortege made its way
escorted by a squadron of cuirassiers
and several battallious of infantry
i'he crowds enjoyed the" funeral rather
as a spectacle than as a tribute and
in the working districts several hos-

withstanding tbe Mte taken yesterday
on the woolen schedule demonstrated
the ability of the committee on finance
to maintain a majority of ten or twelve
on all it's recommendations the "pro-
gressives" continued their fight against
that schedule and were defeated on
the first vote this morning when the
contention of IMliver that only the
wool in the yarn should be taxed was
lost by a vote of forty-three to thirty-
one. Nine republicans including
Bristow voted against the committee.
MUDS PREVENT SPEED

Kllsworth Kans. June 10. After
remaining here for several hours the
New York to Seattle automobiles de
parted for the west early today. The
Shnwmut car left at 12:13 this morn-
ing. The Acme followed five minutes
later while the two Ford cars depart-
ed at 3 and 4:1.1 respectfully. The
roads are practically a sea of mud and
poor time is being made.
Sorghum Is a cane-like grass with
the stature and habit of broom corn
or of the table varieties of Indian rorn
but more slender thau the latter with-
out ears and of a glaucous hue. Sor-
ghum Is cultivated throughout Africa
chiefly for the sweet Juices of the
cane. In the United States It has
been employed for many yeais to
make sirup for which purpose It Is
more or less grown In every tate. It
has also been the subject of much ex-
periment in sugar making.
The Sun's Light.
It has been calculated that the
amount of light received from the sun
Is tbout 600000 times that of the
moon. The Intrinsic brlgb'.uess of the
sun's disc is about 20000 times that of a
candle flame 150 times that of the lime-
light and more than four times bright-
er than the brightest spot In the cra-
ter of an electric arc light. The dark-
est spot on the sun Is much brighter
than the limelight. New York Amer-'can.

Electricity as a Carrier.
Does an electric current when pass
ing through a metal conductor cause
any transportation of particles? It is
well known that it does so In the
liquid conductors known as electro-
lytes; in fact such a common opera
tion as electroplating depends entirely
upon this action. To test the matter
a recent experimenter passed an elec-
tric current continuously for a whole
year through a conductor composed
partly of copper and partly of alumi-
num the sections being pressed firm
ly together. At the end of the year
they were taken apart and examined
but not the slightest trace of either
metal was found in the other.
