Washington. Nov. 27.-Mr. Wilson, the chair?
man af tho committee, has prepared the follow
in-? statement, which was given out thl9 morn?
ing With the bill:
"The Democratic members of the Committee
on Ways and Means have felt as BOOS others
could feel the momentous responsibility resting
upon them and the surpassing BUsgBltade, dlf
ficultv and delicacy of the duty saBsgBed them
of framing a Ti.Hft bin for a Nsttoa of 70.000,000
people. The bill they were called on to re?
form is a vast and labyrinthlan system of class
taxation, the culmination of eighty years' control
of the taxing power by a few great interests.
pattering on to their train a host of petty toll
gathers. It was carefully framed to prevent, as
long as possible, what Its author called 'any
monkeying with the tarin*.' by which he meant
any successful effort of the people to undo or
to lessen the bounties which its beneficiaries
were permitted to write therein in their own
words and their own figures. It transferred to
the free list proper and fruitful revenue
articles, where most of the taxes paid by the
people were received by the Government, and
greatly increased the rates on those articles
where all or most of the taxes paid by the people
went into private coffers. And it was burthened
about by many defences, chief among which
are a swept and garnished Treasury and
swollen and colossal scale of permanent ex?
penditures. Such are the conditions that con?
fronted us at the threshold of our work.
orjr.iTi"Ns to Ki-TXiric duties.
"The committee have welcomed Information
and counsel from every trustworthy source, and
while they do not expect their bill to escape
Just criticism in all of its details, they do pre?
sent lt to thc country as the result of months
of patient, anxious toll, and of an honest de
Blre to discharge their duty, purged of all taint
of local and personal favoritism or prejudice.
Its main features are two. First, the adoption,
whenever lt seemed practicable, of ad valorem
Instead of specific duties; secondly, the freeing
from taxes of those great materials of industry
that He at the basis of production. Specific
rates of fluty are objectionable for these rea?
Bons: They frequently conceal a rate of taxa?
tion too enormous to be submitted to if ex?
pressed in ad valorem terms, as the duty of 8
cents on a hundred pounds on palt in bulk,
which amounts to over SO per cent on a common
necessary of life. They always bear heavily
on the common article used by the masses and
lightly on the expensive article consumed by
the rich, as a tax of $50 on all houses would be
little or nothing on the great mansion and very
high on the humble home. And contrary to
common belief, specific duties lead /to greater
frauds in administration, for counting and
weighing at the Custom House are done by the
cheapest and most easily corrupted labor, while
ad valorem rates are asaessed by the best paid
and most responsible appraisers. The ad va?
lorem system has worked well In practice, ls
essentially the fair system because lt ls a tax
upon the actual value of an article, and was
declared by Mr. Clay himself to be In theory
and according to every sound principle of Jus?
tice entitled to the preference, and vindicated
by long trial.
REASONS FOR FUEE RAW MATEEIAL8.
"The boldest innovation of the bill is Its large
free list of raw materials. Taxes upon produc?
tion are double wrongs. They gather and cumu?
late on the consumer of the finished product.
They hurt labor by narrowing the market for
what it produces. Coal and iron are the founda?
tions of modern industry. Material progress is
measured by the amount of their consumption.
No other country can supply them as
abundantly or cheaply ?s we can. No
possible competition can interefere with our
own producers, a few miles in the interior of the
country. Remoteness from the sources of supply
is in Itself enough disadvantage to any section
of the country, without further burdens in tariff
taxes. Untaxed ores, coal, lumber, wool and
other fibres must immensely stimulate produc?
tion in certain parts of our country'- The thin
edge of American manufactures has SBtsrsd
every country. With r"!eas* from taxes upon
their materials there ls no limit to the growth of
our foreign trade. This will more than compen?
sate to the horne producers of raw material, who.
tariff or no tariff, control all the interior of the
country, for any apprehended loss of markets
anywhere along the seaboard. Its Incalculable
advantage to labor ls apparent. In every great
line of manufa tures ira can produce in six
months to nine months enough for our home
market. We can get rid of our surplus only by
foreign trade. As long as we have BUSS on the
materials of industry we cannot build up that
trade. Hence the other alternative of trustB to
keep down production to the home market. The
'workingman caa see arBStaer his interest ls with
a system that represses production and robs him
of employment fir with a system that gives
natural and healthy play to production and
emancipates him from trusts and like combina?
tions of capital.
"Aa to tbe details of the bill, I will briefly re?
capitulate the salient changes of the several
schedules. In the chemical schedule we have
transferred to the free Hat quite a number of
articles used in manufactures, tbe most im?
portant of which is sulphuric acid, wif of the
coroeist. nes of all eh<-mlcal Industry. The duty
on Castor oil is reduced from S3 to 35 cents per
gallon, and the duty on linseed oil, whbh was
aecretly raised to 32 cents by the conference
committee on the McKinley bill, after each
hcrtise had openly voted for a lover duty, w*
put at 15 c -nts a gallon. Pig lead being reduced
from 2 to 1 cent a pound, lead paints tire corre
spoadingly reduced. The McKinley bill increased
the duty on opium prepared for smoking to $12
a pound. In the vain hope of lessening its im?
portation. The Custom House officers on the
Pndflc Oast declare that this increase of duty
has simply placed In the hands of smugglers
the bringing in af opium, to the demoraliza?
tion of the customs service and the loss of
over half a million revenue. The duty proposed
is believed to be collectable, and will put the
traffic under Government control and super?
vises.
rOTTEHY AND SLAM SCHEDULES.
"In the pottery schedule substantial redue
tloas are made. Plain white ware ls dropped
from the high schedu!-* into which lt mysteri?
ously crowded Itself. Decorated ware ls reduced
from 60 Ut 45 per cent, undecorated
from 65 to 40. In common window glass,
where close combinations have kept up
the prices to consumers, under shelter of duties
averaging 100 per cent, a reduction of more
than one-half has been made in all the larger
sites. There ts no doubt that these rates will
Permit a very healthy growth of the Industry
here, in plate glass reductions are made, the
largest sizes from 50 cents to 30 cents per
square foot; of silvered, from ?0 to 35 cents.
"Io the Iron and steel schedule we began
with free ore. The discovery of the Immense
deposits ot Bessemer ores in thc lake region, and
Of foundry ores in Alabama, bas rapidly swept
us to the leadership of the world In the pro?
duction of in.n and steel, and brought near at
hand our undisputed supremacy IB the great
field of manufat tores, The use of steam BBovela
reduces the coat of mining to a point Where
the wages pail 'natural labor' ar- irrelevant.
Pig iron wa reduce from J?> '- pot ton, which
is from ."0 to 90 per cent, to a uniform duty of
2.'".. p.-r cent, a rate somewhat higher in pro?
portion than tba real of the Belledale, becaaae
of cheap freight rat * oa foreign ii^c. it being a
favorite freight on western voyages Btsel rails
we reduce from 515 44 per ton. now 75 per
cent, to 25 per cent. Aa the pu >1 which has
kept up prices sn many years in this country
Beema now disorganized, the other producers
will soon need protection more against Mr.
Carnegie at Pittsburg, and Mr. stirling at Chi?
cago than against foreign producers
"The residue of the schedules vary from 25
to 'M per cent, WOOd screws b"ing put at the
latter figure. Deems and girders are U psr
cent, because ol' tin- waste in cutting beams
.'uni the variety of lengths ;m.I Bites, and jils.i
of the frequent necessity of changing the rolla
in making beam*" and girders, because of the
Irregular quantities aaa lengths aad size.* of
orders Tin plates .are reduced lu 4u per cent, a
little more than one-half of the McKinley rate.
This la a revenue duty, and at the same u;.,,.
enough to permit any existing mills to live
and noorlah, cheaper grades of pocket cutlery
are r!5 per cent; higher gra les 45. Table cutlery
is put at .'{5 per cent. These are very substantial
redactions from present nibs, which, being
BpecMc, reach in some grades of pocket cutlery
as ililli as N j,er cent, but aitta release of taxes
on raw materials, especially on pearl sad ivory
for handles, seem ample.
A Dt'TV lll'.'I.VINED ON LEAD OUE.
"Both copper ores and pig copper nre made
free, we being large exporters of the latter
and the duty serving only to enable the produ?
cers to sell higher to our people than to for?
eigners. Nickel ls free. Lead ore has a small
duty of 15 per cent; pig lead 1 cent a pound.
Silver lead ores are restored to the free list.
Unmanufactured lumber is free. Manufactured
is put nt 25 per cent, with the proviso that if
any export duties are charged on foreign lum?
ber it shall be admitted only at the rates now
existing.
"Sugar has been a difficult subject to deal with.
Raw sugar was transferred to the free list by
the McKinley bill because nearly all the taxes
paid on it went to the public Treasury. A
strong desire among some members Of the com?
mittee was to put an ad valorem duty of _'? or 25
per cent on it and to abollata the bounty at ones,
After much consideration it was decided to re?
duce by one-half the duty on relined sugar nnd
to repeal the bounty one-eighth each year, leav?
ing raw sugar untaxed as at present.
"In the tobacco schedule those rates were
sought which would bring most revenue. The
present taxes of $2 and J2 75 a pound OB wrap?
per leaf have blotted out many small estab?
lishments and actually impaired revenue. We
make the rates $1 and Jl 25 per pound on wrap?
per leaf and 35 cents and 50 cents per pound "ti
filler tobacco, unstemmed and stemmed |g gaeta.
Manufactures of tobacco BIS put at 40 cents.
Cigars are reduced from $4 50 p.-r pound and
ti per cent nd valorem to U per pound and SS
PST cent, which is believed to be the most pro?
ductive revenue rate, and is higher than the
law of ISSI.
"Live animals are pot at 20 per cent. Parley
Is reduced from .10 cents per bushel to Bf per
cent, which is about 12 cents. Ureadstuffs. of
which ITS are immense exporters, are mad" (tea
except when imported from COUBtrlea putting
duties on our like products. In which eas-- tba
duty is '20 per cent. Fresh vegetables, fruits,
eggs and like food products are untaxed for tba
benefit of our consumers, largely the working
people of the cities. Salt In built ls free; In pack?
ages the salt is free, but the covering dutiable at
rates prescribed for like articles.
cuampac.ni" snorr.u rr. cifEAPcn.
"The tariff on spirits is put at double the in?
ternal revenue rates on like spirits, and some
slight reduction is made on still win*-.*, malt
liquors, ginger ale and like beverages In the in?
terest of increased revenue. The duty on spark?
ling wines ls likewise slightly reduced for the
same reasons', that on champagne being put at
$7 per dozen quarts, as against %H In the He
Kinley bill, and $C in the law of Ittt.
"In cotton manufactures substantial reductions
are made, esp.- itally OB Cheap Cloths and prints,
and ^e existing system of taxing by count of
taraaJBB IB the square lneli is retained. Hemp
and tiax are made free; dressed lias of hemp and
Hhx 1 rent and l\% cents rc-sixctlvely. Burlaps
and cotton aad grata bagging are put at U |"-r
cent, but when imported for covering of articles
to be exported are duty free.
"Wool ls made fie*. This takes the stilts
fiom under woollen manufactures, and begets
the hojie that they may recover from the lan?
guishing condition in whi'h they lave been
for a quarter of a century, and that we may
get woollen goods at reSBOBabia rates Instead
Of at duties that OB the common grades fre?
quently reach 106 per cent, and in cases two
or three times that merciless figure. Cloths and
dress goods ar- put at tu per cent, clothing at
45 per cent; rates higher than the COBUBittsa
desired, but deemed temporarily necessary be*
cause our manufacturers have so long been ex?
cluded from two-thirds "f the wools of the wild
that they will have t<> learn th.- art of manu?
facturing with free wool. A sliding seale ls
therefore added by which the rates in th
Swollen sch"dule ure to come down live points
with the lapse of five years. Carpets, an in?
dustry in which Wa will soon ix- independent
of competition, are put at :;.'. per cent for Ax?
minster, moquette and Wilton, ami .lo per cut
for 111 IBB I1 IS while common grades go down to
SJ per cent. The lilli provides that tho duties
shall be removed from wool on March 1, and
reduced on Woollen goods on July 1.
"In th? silk schedule the reduction of rat's
ls snialb-r than in cotton or woollen fabrics.
Sole leather ls redueed from 10 to 5 per cent
Leuther gloves are classified according to ma?
terial and length, and ar" uniformly rated at
specific duties, which average not over IS per
cent on the comm in varieties and near 40 per
cent on the fine lamb and kid gloves, In the
schedul" of sundries many articles, like hat?
ters' plush, are put on the free list. The duty
on eat diamonds, pearls and other precious
stones ls increased. Works of art tire, 1 am de?
lighted to say, put back on the free list.
"The above ls a rapid summary of the chief
changes made by the proposed bill, and will
give a . atlnfactory idea. 1 believe, of its gea*
eral structure. It 's estimated that lt will re
due- revenue on the basis of the Importations
of m'i about $50,000,<?jo, with an in.nsely
larger decrease of tax binding to the American
people. Th" Administration law ls reported
with a few am telments, BUggSStSd by experi?
ence of Its operation. That law was CbteBy pre?
pared by Mr. Hewitt when he was in Congress,
and the changes proposed jn our bill nre to
make lt more effective, while nt the same time
softening some of the features added by the
Mcginley bill that WOUld treat tie- business of
Importing as outlawry, not entitled to thu pro?
tection of the Government."
