Why Fear Downward Revision?

the slightest tariff revision down
ward would hurt our business, and
lessen out exports.
"Tlie slightest revision downward

a ever-increasing amount of pro
tection all these yeni- Sfeitc at the

take tlie places of Mnerican workers
and paying their workers little, more
than a pittance.
Is there anything in the argument
of the rich hjgh protectionists. If
thiy are right in their contention
that seine tariff revision would less-
tn our exporta, one would naturally
think that Cineat liritafn. wit li free
trade, would have perished Ion; ago.
But Great Hritaln is n :t pi Uing.
