thin that the distribution of the proceeds of

more vc-n and fair than anywhere else on
earth. There have been great a cumulations
(if capital necessary for the world's develop

S:ates this ha? been accompanied b,- the near
est approach to general distribution that the
world has ever seeu. This has not been

I f - whk-h the unprotected industries, takea
alone, would have given us as a people,
j Protection has established tho clusters of
great tnanufuct r.ng and working centers.
: which have lven railroads the possibility of
I pxlstenc", which no scattered population could
j evr have created. The railroads which these
; treat manufacturing towns and their need of
| tram or tat Ion of freight have built are sources
i of cn>iyable wealth which are not confined to
1 the protected Industries, but are spread
through all the business of the United States
and It sure the comfort and happiness of ull
j the people.
If In the United States thcro are higher
c ill p.-
Just as ill •
"'ages and higher cost of capital there must
uch barriers against goods from abroad as
w ill equalize these higher costs, or the products
of tho United States can not be sold except at
a loss. Sales at a loss can not last long. There
Is also a constant demand for lower prices,
which demand has to be listened to in a coun-
trv always strlv ng toward a higher plane of
civilization. We have, therefore, before us al-
was three problems - wages to tie maintained,
hours of labor to be lessened and prices to be
lowered Not one, but all. It is trne that In-
vention alone keeps pace with and regulates
the demand for higher weges and fewer hours,
which arc the conditions of our higher plane,
but It can not be more. It can not meet In ad
dition the lower pricos of a lower level of civil*
Time was when lower prices and higher
waves were scouted as Incompatible and ab-
surd and as thlnvs that could not exist to-
gethcr, but to-day both are recognized as rei-
sonnble demands when reasonably limited.
Lower prices will take care of themselves, and
so will higher waires If they are not interfered
with by competition from regions where the
different social status causes laborers to bo
content with lesser results. Tho consumer
will take care of himself if you look after the
producer. For he Is o e . nd the same person
Hut wbile this bill in its principle, If It has any,
f business so ! Is not unprotectlve, It will be absolutely so In
| practice, not only In its direct reductions, but
also in its indirect reductions, sure to come
from the ch inge from specific duties to ad va-
lorem, which is.a marked feature of the bllL
An nd valorem dutv, as the name implies, is
one which varies according to the prloes If
prices could be exactly determined ii would be
fair. Hut, unfortunately, prices aro very muuh
matters of opinion on wh eh honest men may
differ much and rogues mora Inasmuch as
the duly depends on the price, a cheat on tho
price i.s a cheat on tho duty, if a piece of goods
is worth $ I a yard and tie.- duty is per cent,
the correct U.ty is $1.5). If the price be in-
voiced at 11.50 a yard the duty collect-
ed becomes proportionately lower, and
not only is the government cheated
< ut of It.-, proper duty, but the
manufacturer Is cheated out of the protection
his government i,as promised, 'ibis, therefore,
is n) theory. It i< within t e experience of
cv rv men hunt tint goo is which cannot b«
purchased at all !n Kurope can bo purchased,
duly paid, In Now York at lower prices than
like goods can be purchased bv ihe honest mer-
chant who values them at their true market
value und pays the dut demanded by the gov-
ernment, and yet these ad valorem duties, thus
objectionable, have increased in number every-
where. being substituted In nearly all the
schedules for specific duties.
How the bill will aci as a revenue raiser, and
how it can act as au injur/ i the government
and the producer both together, is well exem
pi I lied by the pottery schedule. An amount
equal to two fifths of the umount of the im-
ports are made bore, valued at $ t, 4)),0W. Nine
millions and a half dollars are Imported Un-
befcStt.OOQ. The erockery scnsduie seems oara
ly U> be manage! with a view to revenue
While It would be Impossib e to specify the
probable effects of this bill, a few of the most
Important may be touched upon.
Am to the future relations between Canada
and the United States, it perhaps would not be
decorous for us o talk fully but there are
those who believe that what they think Is the
manifest destiny of this continent la annexa-
tion and one market and one development
Those who have thought in their minds of
the bill will sec how little this bill, compared
with existing law, conduces to that end
Those, on the other hand, wno look upon tho
dominion simply as auother nation will be sur
prlBed to see how freely Is accorded to her
privileges and opportunities In derogatlou of
those of our own eitlaens; privileges and op-
portunities for which the dominion would be
glad to give ample and uostlnted concessions
Hy this bill they will, without money aud with-
out price, receive them.
What effect also this bill will have upon the
treaties male by the last administration with
Cuba and the Spanish-American countries the
commlttoe presented no calculations. If we
should lose anyiht g thus gained It will le an
addition to the general misfortune of this bill
Another serlou* objection Is, the bill decreases
the revenue according to the daleu'.atlons usu-
ally mode bv the treasury department, as com-
pared with 1«U, about This large
deficit, coming as It - oe«, upon a depleted
treasury Is appalling in a Mil for revenue only.
How his great bole in our resources as a na-
tion is to be filled no one knows At this date
not even the committee Itself knows, unless the
president, anticipating in the message to con
gress the report of the committee on ways and
means, shall afford to the committee Itself its
wished for clew.
Against the consideration of such a bill mak
ing such a deficit and leaving It unprovided for,
the minority va nlr protested when the bill was
laid beforo the committee. Who would dare.
If of sound and statesmanlike mind, to make a
deficit of t74,tJOU,OOQ and bllodly vote It, with so
plan 1q sight to meet the expenditures? Ihat
same pro est we make lo the house and to the
countr - The bill ought not to be reported
without the Internal reveuue bill which Is to
make up the deficiency
Are we to puss the bill and then be coerced
Into the other? Who knows, if they were rre-
senteJ together, tha* we might not prefer to
stay where we are! The progrea* of this at-
tempt at what has been called reform ho* al-
ready created such feeling that the country Is
stirred all over. When the scheme of revising
taxes by methods used In the time of war Is
presented in addition to those now Imposed
there may be such further revulsion of feeling
as will acoomplish the work of defeailog this
While as party men we might rejoloe at lis
passage, as citizens we think the exigencies of
the present time are superior to even the most
defined political advantage and advise that the
bill do not pass We have not thought It ad-
visable to make any appeals to paselon or
In MO representative cities where the num-
ber employed exceeds 2,50),tJOO, fully one*third
are without employment These are engaged
In the protected industries Those who thought
they were beyond the touch of the larlff now
know the solid fact that all Industries are pros-
perous or none We spread this all over the
countr/ and the result will startle even the ua-
The remainder of the report is taken
up with analysis and eriticism of the
schedules of the new bill.
