Coffee Tariff Opposition j
How tho coffee tariff proposition l,
viewed by tho men of tho opposition
Is well presented by Alfred Henry
Lewis In his special correspondence
to the Hearst papers. As expressing
tho opinions of the Democracy It Is
ot much local interest. Lewis says:
Mr. Payne nnd his tariff mongers
havo visibly shrunk awny from Hint
coffee tax of five cents n pound. They
wcro frightened by tho cries ot
There are roundly ninety million
pcoplo in the country; among them
they get awny with n yearly nlnc-nnd
ninety million pounds of coffee. That
proposed tariff of five cents would
mean almost a yearly $r0,000,000.
That Is, It would mean that hugo
revenue wcro It not for this: Tho
coffcc-wlse men would bring In a
year's supply while the bill was be
ing framed and passed, In which
event, to bo sure, tho coffcc-wlBo men
and not the Government would get
Hint $60, 000,00(1. The Government
would only hnc succeeded In raising
the price ot coffee to tho pcoplo and
never put a dollar In Its own pocket
This truth Is not only finding heat
ed demonstration by those who go
shouting "Job," but Intimations nro
not wanting that the tariff mongers
had such a result In mind.
This last I do not believe. "Mr.
Payne Is not crooked; ho Is only dull.
Tho long and short of It Is that
coffee will remain on the freo list,
whero cofico belongs. These coffeo-

Next day when tho boys wcro tak
