Tariff matters will uovor bo
eottled in the United States along
tho lino that has been traveled
ever sinco the war. Tho country
has got to bo too big, and its seo
tional interests too diverse, for
the successful application of any
of tho stock economic doctrines
that the electors havo to.swallow
with tho very air they breathe at
every election. Tariff for pro
tection requires that only light
imposts, or none at all, bo put on
tho raw material of the manufac
tures to be protected. Rut what is
raw material in tho industries
of one particular section of
the vast country is the
finished product of anothor
section. And there you are. A
present illustration of tbi diffi
culty is the declaration of the Re
publicans in Congress from the
cattle raising sectious of the West,
that, if hides be made free as the
raw material of tho leather manu
facturers of the East, they will bo
compelled to even things up by
taking the duties off certain arti
cles that their section consumes
and the EaBt produces. "Tariff for
revenue with incidental protec
tion," is another taking cry. It is
used by uncompromising advo
cates of protection for its own
sake whenever they deem the doc
trine to bo in danger from the as
saults of economic professors
whom thoy, tho protectionists on
principle or for profit, choose to
sueoringly call doctrinaires. On
the other hand, tho same cry is
heard from avowed disbelievers
in protection as a theory, who,
however, affect to believe freo
trade impracticable though tho
true scientific doctrine, of political
economy. Even this compromise
doctrino of revenue and protection
combined has never been im
partially applied as a priuciple.
It has not availed for more than a
cry, because the power it would
gain, on occasions when used, has
ever been employed to help selfish
interests, each of which wanted
tho protection to come to itself
and tho revenue to be derived
from tho others, so far as these
objects could bo gained by jug
gling with figures and phrasos,
with specific duties and advalarom
duties, in framing tho statute.
What havo been "incidental"
most of all to tariff manipulation
are traffic in public interests by
representatives of privato inter
ests, unstatnsmanlike bargains be
tween different factions aud dif
ferent sections, logrolling for
each other by tho law
makers, an.d corrupt under
standings between the latter J
and the lobbies of privato inter
ests. Tho Democratic party was
given power four years ago to
make a fair and square applica
tion of the composito doctrine
of taxation for revonuo with pro
tection only incidental. Presi
dent Cleveland understood tho
behest of tho people and
tried to havo it obeyed, but
the party bohind him in Con
gress Bhowed the white feather,
when faco to face with tho mono
polistic enemy, aud mado a fresh
jumblo of tariff legislation in
tlio Wilson bill." ' Thero is a dis
pute as to what tho tariff mandate
of tho nation was in electing Pre
sident McKinloy. It was certainly
not to carry out tho financial
or auy other theories of tho party
that was overwholmingly beaten.
President McKinloy has had it
declarod, on his bohalf, that tho
first duties of his administration
aro to establish a sound currency
and secure an adequato revonuo.
Congress is Bupposod to bo pursu
ing tho rovouue object iu framing a
now tariff, but, tho dominant
paity being for protection first
aud revonuo next, there is groat
daugor that tho secondary con
sideration will bo loft in a worse
plight than over. Iu all probabi
lity a tariff law will bo produced
on this occasion which will dis
credit protection for itself with
tho pooplo of tho nation more
emphatically than any pre
vious exploitation of tho doctrine.
It will novor work satisfactorily
in a country having so many
diverse sectional interests, but it
will not bo supplanted by any
policy that can bo technically call
ed free trade. The nation will al
ways havo to raiBO a revonuo and
it must bo au adequato one for do
fraying the increasing national
expenditures. Doubtloss not for
many yoars to como, if ever oven,
will the people of the United
States agree upon any other
modes of national taxation than
tariff aud excise imposts. They
may, ho wove r, as tho result of a
single electoral campaign, secure
a tariff ou importations which
will be at once light, equable up
on all the people, aud adequate
for yielding needed revenue. Such
a tariff should not distinguish in
auywiee botween raw and finished
products, in any case where eithor
are produced in the country.
There should indeed be no
free list whatever, but a
uniform tax on the value of
everything imported. It ought to
be so high as, and no higher than
would provide for tho national
expenditures and the gradual de
fraying of the national debt. The
rate would of courso be made
high enough at tho Btart to afford
protection to established industry
such as would not involve
any sudden pulling down
of tho props. Then, as
each year would produce its in
evitable Burplus, tho protocted in
terests might bo let down easily
by a slight reduutiou of tho rate.
Tho degreo could bo calculated
with precision by tho administra
tion, and each successive year's
tariff bill be drafted in one short
section. As the high protection
of their home markets came down
under such a system, there
would bo an opening of
foreign markets to tho farmers
and manufacturers, through
a vastly expanded commerce,
whioh would lay the whole world
practically under their feet. This
is to be the commercial destiny of
tho United States, and it will be
hastened by tho present tariff
tinkering. In the meantime pro
tection, as at present intorproted,
has nothing but ropeated periods
of depression, at intervals shorter
each successive timo, in store for
American industry and commerce
Over production of sugar is a
serious matter in tho Argentina
Republic. Tho excess available
for export the current year is
more than 100,000 tons. It is
strange if the Argentine surplus
cannot bo marketed in tho United
States to Bupply tho Cuban defi
ciency. Don't be persuaded to accept
what is not really good in en
larged portraits, just because you
have given an order for one.

HOUSEHOLD AND DAIRY.
The long continued drouth
of this year has necessarily
affected dairies, especially on
this island, and its continuance
bids fair to seriously affect the
milk supply. Consequently it
behooves dairymen to be more
economical than ever in order
to make both ends meet before
the next rainy season. In no
way can economy be practised
to better advantage than in
using the Alpha-De Laval
Cream Separators. Here
are a few of the advantages to
be gained from their use:
1. Save 10 percent, to ?0
percent, in skimming. 2. Save
$ percent, to 10 percent, in
churning. . Increase butter
value S percent, to JO percent.
4. Save time and labor. $. Save
ice and water. 6. Insure purity
of product. 7. Remove tuber
culosis and disease germs.
8. G jve a much superior cream.
9. Give cream of any desired
density. 10. Give warm, fresh,
sweet skim-milk. 11. Obviate
"scours" in calves. 12. Give
the best aeration. 13. Do away
with taints and odors. 14. En
hance keeping qualities. 15.
Save women's and housework.
16. Save one-half time in
churning. 17. Save storing and
handling of ice. 18. Save milk
and ice-houses. 19. Save mul
titude of utensils. 20. Save
washing and care of utensils.
