The Vote in the Senate.
Tbe vote on the tariff bill when
it tiually came before tbe senate
furnished u decided surprise.
Every democratic senator ex
cept McEnery of Louisana vcted
against tbe measure and the dem
ocratic party was spared the dis-
grace of having repudiated its
time honored principle?. To say
that we, and all true admirers of
the old democratic war cry
"Equal rights to all and special
privileges to none" are unspeak
ably gratified would be a very
mild expression indeed. We feel
u* though wo had just esciped
frjni drowning It was a mighty
c'ose call and we can scarce!v
yet draw our breath regularly.
The republicans passed the
bill through the senate and now
a conference committee will com
bine the Senate bill and the
House bill into a single act which j ]

some people voted for that law
who did not fully uuderstand il
and some may have voted agaiust
it under a misapprehension. It
is of tremendous importance
however and should bo under-
stood by every c itisssn.

An editor who is a true friend to

That expression from the
Bible "In time of peace prepare
for war" means that every citi
sen who expects to vote should
post up on public questions so be
can vote wisely. Its practical
application iu Braver county
means that every man should

MILLIONS ADDtCD TO INCBKAHICO DOTUCH
The Senate has changed the duties
so as to add '27% millions worth of
Imports to the total list of reduc-
tions reported by the tiiumce com-
mittee, but t the same time it has
added more than 44 million dollars'
worth to the list on lucreaaes, the
additional Increases of duty thu
heliiir nearly twice as lurgfeas the ad
ditional reductions, measured by the
valueof the Imports of 15)07.
The last day's work consisted In
clearing up the odds and ends of the

ments adopted were those on the
tobacco schedule and levying u dUty^

The Herald is wise in endorsing
him as the Oitlnhoman will be in
a few months.
It is fitting that his nomination
febould come from the highest

not surprising that its prompt

the "iVtl\ ns of America."
