O ur present tariff laws, the vicious, ine- 5 quitable and illogical source of unnecessary taxation, ought to beat once revised and amended. These laws, as their primary and plain effect, raise the price to consumers ; of all articles imported and subjected to duty, ■. by precisely Vie sum] paid for such duties. .* Thus Vie amount of the duty measures ifte , tax paid by Vwse who purchase for Use these imported articles. Many of these, things, however, are. raised or manufactured in our country, and the duties now levied upon • foreign goods and products are called pro ­ tection to these home manufactures, be ­ cause they render it possible for those of our people who are manufacturers to make, these taxed articles and sell them for a price equal to that demanded for the im ­ ported goods that have paid customs duty. So it happens that while comparatively a few use the imported articles, millions of our people; who never used and never saw ainy of the foreign products, purchase and use things of the same kind|made in this country, arid pay Viertfor nearly or quite Vie same enhanced price which Vie duty adds to the imported articles. Those Who buy the public treasmy, but the great majority of our citizens, who buy domestic articles of the same class, pay a sum at least approxi ­ mately equal to this duty to the home manufacturer. | When the number of farmers engaged in wool raising is compared? with ail the farmers in the country, and the small pro ­ portion they bear to our population is con ­ sidered; when it is made apparent that, in the case of a largo part of those who own; sheep;- the benefit of the present tariff op wool is illusory; * * * reasons are sug ­ gested why the removal or reduction of this duty should be included in a revision cjf our tariff laws. j The radical reduction of the duties im ­ posed on raw material used in manufacr tbres, or its free importation, is of course ain important factor in any-effort to reduce the price of these necessaries ; it would' not only relieve them from the increased cost caused by the tariff on such material, but the manufactured product being thus cheapened, that part of the tariff now laid upon such product,? as a compensation to our manufacturers for the present price of raw material, could be accordingly modi ­ fied. Such reduction, of free importation, would serve beside to largely reduced the revenue. It is not apparent how such a change can have any injurious effect upon tour manufacturers. On the contrary, it would appear to give them a better chande in foreign markets with the manufacturers of. other countries, who cheapen their = wares by free material. Thus our people might have the_opportunity of extending their sales beyond the limits of home con ­ sumption — saving them from, the depres ­ sion, interrupttion in business, and loss caused by a glutted domestic market, and affording their employes more certain, and ? steady labor, with its resulting quiet and contentment . — Clevelands Message, Dec. 6, 1887. H e [Cleveland] discusses the principles at issue iu the struggle and shows that HE IS THE FREE TRADE CANDIDATE IN EVERYTHING BUT NAME. The reservation is an important one for Ameri ­ can party purposes. • The president feels compelled to characterize the attempt to branu him as a free trader as deception, but for all that the electoral conflict now in progress IS A CONFLICT BETWEEN FREE TRADE AND PROTECTION and nothing else. This is a very good conflict as things go . —London News, July 6 . I t would hardly be possible to put the free trade case more clearly or more strong ­ ly, and yet such is the force ♦of words President Cleveland shrinks from the use of the term “ free trade,\ and in fact de ­ clares that those who taunt him with being a free trader are deceiving the country. “ Free trade ” appears to be equivalent, in the language of political controversy, to “ enemy of the workingmen and industrial enterprises. ” That it should be so is one of the curiosities of politics, and an extra ­ ordinary instance: of the poWer pf a phrase: even .over- mind which are commonly shrewd ad reaspnable:. for it ^.certain, ‘ that ^^r^wfR^V ^AwA President- CJbpir \ IqfiduP'yefrurevfflse which: CabdMiiiis&ffhe eiragloyfortyrflmyears ago, AND-WHICH -.

Good, conservative ; P kesident C leveland does not avow himself to be, and evidently does not re­ gard himselfas a free trader. Yet, whether Mr. Cleveland is in the right or in the . wrong, he cannot help adopting free .trade arguments. Take, for example, his argu-_ ment against the wool tariff, that the farm ­ ing class lose vastly more by the increased • prices; of clothes than they gain from the enhanced price of wool. This reads like , ,n extract from some old speech of Mr. Bright ’ s. * * * But look at his view of the situation as expressed by himself: ’ fit is a condition which confronts us, not to theory. ” Precisely so. Words almost identical with these have been used and With enormous effect in this country by Adam Smith; by Richard Cobden, by Sir Robert Peel . — Glasgow Herald. ’ | I t may be admitted that large reductions In the duties on imported manufactured goods would produce great distresain many parts of the United States. The free im- ; portation of iron, coal, and wool would be a great boon to British producers. * * * If it were aeebinpanied with redactions In • the tariff upon cotton, woolen, and other manufactures the artisans of this country would derive a marked benefit from it. If once the United States finds herself ph the. ifrad to freh trade : shb ‘ will- hardly know* where to stop .— The Scotsman. : M b .
