RepujbHican PAPERS POINT with pride to the "good surplus" now in the United Stntes treasury. A reader of The Com moner calls attention to the fact that on July 1, 1902, the cash balance in the treasury, exclusive of the reserve and trust funds, amounted to $203, 74,599.

The republican referred to introduced himself on a railroad train and asked if ho might submit a question. Of course he was invited to ask as many questions as he liked. He began by explaining that he had grown up in a republican family and had voted the republican ticket reg ularly down to and including 19u0, but he said that since that time ho had been thinking and that he had come to the conclusion that some men wero accumulating such large fortunes that they wero acquiring a dangerous influence over the country -mong such he mentioned Morgan and Rocke feller.

Because, it is dominated by tho protected interests and has fried" out the fat regularly in return for legislative priv ileges given, Republicans do not attempt to defend existing schedules as either right or necessary; ihey simply insist that any reduction in ono schedule would menace the entire system. Every article included in the tariff schedule was included at some one's request and that per son would object to any concession to consumers. Tho helplessn...
