YUBLIC OPINION IS SAID
TO BE WITH MR. TAFT
Many Believe Uncle pie Cannon Can
not Change His Character and
Proposed Revision Will
(Speclnt Corresvonilened )
WASHINGTON. Dec. 7. To An-,
drew Curnegle's sensational declara
tion that the protection of Iron and
steel Is no longer needed Is ascribed
much credit for a remarkable change
In the t o ImIoii situation.
Many of tlio revision advocates nl
icndy confidently believe the battle )
won. They do not expect revolution,
or want It, hut they do believe, more
strongly every day, that Is substan
tial reduction of Important sched
tiles will bo secured.
Factors Favoring: Change
I Three things hnve happened which
1110 regnrded us lespouslble:
I 1. I'lesldenl-elei t Tail's vlgoious
declaration for genuine icvlslmi, his
manifestation (,f willingness to light
Speaker Ciiimon If necessary, and
hs Intimation that ho would veto n
tariff bill which did. not satisfy him.
2. Mr. Carnegie's pronouncement
about tlio tariff on Rtccl,
J. Tlio Midden development of n
great volume of public opinion In
Hiipport of Mr. Tuft's position.
Bier Interests Apathetic
It is no secret that tho hlg In
teiestn which were expected to take
11 grout, uitlve Interest In maintain
ing present schedules have disap
pointed tho high tnrirr faction of
vviivs und means.
The Iron und steel people. Instead
of rushing Into the breach nnd
pinvlng that they must letnlii their
Chinese wall else they bo ruined,
huvemude lather a sorry showing.
Tho United States Steel Corporation
seems to hnvo left nil tlio effort to
the Independents, while Mr. Carne
gie hus knocked vigorously iigninst
the modest efforts of the little fel
lows. Hone for Consumer
- Tnrjft-Tnalllifc' is n Bort of nrchl
tettmnl construction; one part sup
pints another, und In turn depends
on nnothor. Tho duly on hides
makes necessary the duty on leather,
and that mukea Accessary the duty
on shooi and other leather prod
ucts. Tho manufacture! s In ninny
cases have said. "OIvo us fre raw
materials nnd wo will be able to
glvo up the protection on our prod
ucts." So It comes nbout that If tho West
is willing to allow hides to" be free,
the New Hngland shoo Interests, nnrt
the widely scattered tanning iulci
ests, me willing to lose their protec
tion, or n large pari of It, The con
sumer is brought In sight of some
of the relief ho has been asking
"Let It get Btarted once and thcic
Is no telling how far this vrocess
of mutual concession might go," de
claied n nntlonnl authority on tariff,
"it Is largely 11 Question of getting
a start: It Is like taking up a cob
blestone pavement. You may have
to chip the first stone to bits with
a chisel, but when it is removed
the others tome out very re-idllS;
the whole thing presently falls to
pieces. That's Just what this re
organization of 'a tariff means Mr.
Carnegie knocked out the first brick,
and the rest will tumble nut If they
have a chance."
This Is decidedly an optimistic re
vision view, however. There nre n
good ninny people who absolutely
decline to take seriously the recan
tation of Speaker Cannon and the
wnvs and means committee They
Insist that the speaker, once le-
elected, will be the same old czar and
the same ardent standpatter as ever,
und that In tho end a tnrlff bill will
come out which, while keeping Hip
promise of tevlslon to the ear, will
break It to the hope and the under
standing, Hut this question of the next con
gressional election is already deter
mined. The Hon. Jim Ham Lewis,
of Virginia, Seattle, Chicago and
Kosmos, settled It today, while stop
ping in Washington between trains.
"The people lire alwnvs buncoed In
this matter of revision,", he said.
"They nre to be moro than usunlly
well buncoed this time, They will
be delightfully fooled, more scien
tifically, than over before.
Effect on Party
"However, the usual result will
happen, My boy, do you know that
In all the history of tariff legisla
tion In this country, there is no ex
ception to tho rule that 11 pnrty
which makes n tariff bill, loses the
Congress at tho next election.
"That Is the case. Just 0110 ex
ception: the Dlngley law was pnsred
by the Republicans, nnd they did not
lose the next house. They would
have lost It but for the Spanish war.
The party in power won on the Is
suo of standing by the ting, and
saved Itself from the rebuke for that
tariff, which otherwise would sure
ly have I1V011 visited on t). And so
this time; the Republicans will loso
the next house us a penalty for the
coming fraudulent revision."
And Mr. Lewis caressed his won
dious whisker, bowed magtililceut
ly, and passed on.
Father (proudly) "I .believe, my
llenr. thiit boy of ours kiiowH as much
as I do."
Mother "Yon, poor llttlo fellow!
