VANITY FAIR q t1
Conducted by JOHN JOHRH H WILLS w
The Main Difference Between Civilized Man and the
Savage Is IsSavages Savages Dont Read
The High Cost of Living and t the th
Tariff
Everybody Ever bodr is talking about tie tl the
high cost of living There is goo good
reason for the talk for as tli tile
grocerpoet say
Times is hard hnr and moneys scarce
How to live is something fierce
i
i Among the many causes ascribe
to the high cost of living is ou our
present system of tariff Mancini Makin nking
a casual investigation I find time that
the articles which show the grea great
est increase in cost are meat egg cggs
butter fish fruit vegetables woof wood
fuel fuelall all products of nature am and
the soil They hey arc all much deare
than before the passage of the firs first
great purely protective tariff act c of
1883 There were protective tai tal
iff acts before that but the act c of o
1883 was the first to embody th the
principle of protection for Amer
can industries inus ies as opposed 110si pos
tively to the doctrine doc ine of tariff fo for
revenue only
Since Hincethe the passage of that nc act aci
clothing silk sill cotton an and d I wool fab
rics hats shoes teas coffees sugar
canned goods goo ls < drugs furniture
paints household utensils tools
i machinery madl nerJ books and paper have have
become much cheaper c All manu
factured articles have been cheap cheap
ened is a direct as well wc as indirect
result of that protective principle
Among the other necessities whicl wll ch
have been cheapened indirectly b by
the tariff are transportation illu
nm initiating inating oils and andgas gas
All foodstuffs foodstufIswhichcome which come to tin the
market ii rl f Iii in n anatu iiif natural rals i state nre iirebigl are Tugli
er in price Those which arc pre
pared by some process of manu
facture are cheaper This allOws
how the tariff has affected food
prices For instance peaches nut amid
apples in the natural state have have <
been rising steadily in price every
year while peaches and apples pre
served canned or manufactured in
any 3 form arc becoming cheaper
Rr Wheat heat and corn are ar dearer but
Hour and meal cheaper The rise
in prices of the products of nature
is not caused by the tariff the lad
of supply and the increase in de
maud except in the case of wood woo d
fuel but by one of the fundamental
princ principles iples of economical finance
and that is creating an artificial artific ial
demand by b restraining the natural
supply There The r e are meats grain
and fruit aplenty but through the
operation > of the commission mer
chant system they arc put on the
market at an arbitrary price and
if f unsold at that piice are sent to
the he canneries i or they are stored in
granaries ranaries and refr igerators r s for
purpose of forcing the prices This
practice nacticc is old as trade and the
story of Joseph and his operations
with the wheat of Pharaoh is not
so 10 much a miracle or fable as the
iccount of a successful enhance
anent of the price pr ice of foodstuff by bJ a
lever financier of that age
So I am inclined to think that
the he high cost of living is mainly ml nlJ
caused amise d by the producers and mer ¬
hants c of foodstuffs forming form ing trusts usts
and and operating in restraint of trade
I Vhat remedy the law can give has
Jet r r et to be seen As to the tariff I
I un m of the opinion also that many
I articles of manufacture are rated
too oo high and allow opportunity
for or an overprofit to the manufac
tInm rarer Our factories can make
gootls cods and ship them abroad for
sale ale at a lower price than they are
sold old at home which shows that an
Itr er r bitrary high price is charged in
the ho home market and that there is
all mil n artificial overproftt sufficient to
allow How exploiting and attempts to
cornel orner the foreign zore ign market
For an entire century the tariff
r
question has engaged the the theearnest earnest
I attention of our greatest grl est states ¬
As the has w
I men country grown
and its in industries dustries developed there
has been a gradual gradunllecognition recognition of
the soundness of the doctrine of
protection though the latter belief
has changed in favor of low tariff
protection instead of the high pro ¬
tection as expressed in the McKee
bill of 1883 and modified in the He M
Kiuley and Dingley bills We will
soon sec the expression in a tariff
law of the low tariff idea of protec
tion I hope to discuss the high
cost of living from another point
I of view and an in inlelation relation 1 to the house
rent problem at another time
What Shall We Do to be Saved
Being a Reply to Crusader
It gives me great pleasure to
know that Crusader could find
nothing more in my article on The
Colored Voter and the Democratic
s
Party Pnrt to criticise than the closing
paragraph in which I advise the
colored voters to get together and
organize and help to turn the ras ¬
I cals out and replace them with
good Republicans Well I think
that good advice advic yet There was
never r a time in history of the
Negro in America when or organizu ganiza ¬
tion was more needed With the
solid so lid South actively arrayed I
against us and the Northern Demo ¬
crats holding out the bait of office
t
in State and city along with the
attitude of the thCpresen presen t administra ¬
tiontoward tion tiontoWlrdNe toward Negro glo iuflueiicc inf1IlCii eOintli in the thmt
party if organization is not need ¬
ed nothing else is The Irish are fir c
Democrats they are organized Ol or ganized the
Germans are Republicans they
are mi r e organized the Italians are Re ¬
publicans they are organized the
Jews do not concern themselves to
any great extent with politics but
they are organized All of these
nationalities are closely organized
and any movement for their the l better ¬
ment is discussed and concerted ac ¬
tion agreed upon or any movement
antagonistic to their interests finds
them presenting a united opposi ¬
tion The Negro is alone of all
straggling this way and that
What idea animates and unifies unif unifes es s
the entire cnt le Negro people of this
conn country joimtr try y On what are they all
agreed The forces which are act ¬
ing against us are a r e organized sol ¬
idly actively and with great skill
There should be organizations of
colored color r ed voters in every city coun ¬
ty ty Congressional district State j
through which information in ¬
struction and plan of action upon
natters affecting our welfare can
be t > put into action If it be true
that hai the colored voters of this coun
tLJ hm ry are a horde of automatons
as is you ou say then they will be snore more
I IeasilJ easily organized than if they all
want to lead as others have ha v e
Jmrged Organize the auto
imtoms and then we will gal
auize them into useful life
As to the rascals I ascals scnls in command
Have you younotifed noticed whats going on
The he people have served notice to
quit iiit to most of the old line of ma
chine Amine politicians and many of
hem have not waited but got out Y
without waiting for the notice
Progress regress and pure government is g
the ho watchword of the hour and the
colorc olored voter had better organize
and iid get in line As to Mr Taft
and ml your OUl modern Cagliostro or
the he Big Noise you may take your
clwice ho ice With the solid South and
itsl11an ts many villainies as the be all and
end nd all of the Democratic party 1 I I
