TARIFF TOUGH ONES.
A Few Nuts for High. Tariff Advo-;
cates to Oracle
The following pertinent questions
have been asked by those who believe
in a revision of the tariff. We give it
space in the Democrat the more
readily as the questions were original
ly propounded in Pennsylvania, the
home of protection. We ask the farm
era of Barton county to consider the
matter in a spirit of fairness, and not
a million men have been oat
of work under it?
"Why Pennsylvania miners loat 128 .
days work in 1884 and 111 days work
in 1885?. rReport of Pennsylvania
, Bureau of Industrial Statistics.
i Why they get ouly 120 a month,
j and pay ont of that $2.50 for tools,
sharpening, powder and oil? fPeti-
tiou of Clearfield county miners to
Governor Pattion, April, 1886.
Whv some Pennsylvania laborers
work for 50 cents a day? 0
Why be talks about child labor in
England when slate pickers 7Qo 10
years old are working under the Crod
in Pennsylvania? Henry George in
Horili American Review, October, 1886.
o Why Pennsylvania operatives pay
85 a, month for company houses when
English operatives "get a cottage for
S30 a year?
P o How protection protects working
men wnen Italians and Hungarians
come in cyjty freer
Whv cotton operatives cjm Massa
chusetts work 60 hours, and in New
England states 66 and 69 hours a
week.hile English operatives work
only 56? Secretary Blaine's Repoit
n Foreign Labor. 1881. o
Why the poorer American spinners
get $7.07 and the poorer English spin
ners $7.20 a week, though the Amtri-
can makes 2J yards of cloth to Enz-
Uish 2 yards? Secretary Blaine'i
Keports on loreign Labor, 1881.
j Why wages under the high protect
ive tariffs of Italy and Germany are "
about half what they are in "free
Why the "comfttion of (the miner
has for some years been growing worse
in Pennsylvania and better in Great
Britain!" Henry George in NorOk
American Review, October, 1886
Why ihe workingmen earn higher
day wages in unprotected than pro
AVhy the importation if(foplen and
wirsted cloths is increasing at a fear
ful rate while our owu weavers are
thrown out of employment?" Mem
orial to Congress of 40,000 Pennsyl
vania woolen operatives, 16.
AVhat.good is a tariff" to working
men when American factories pay only
$7.50 wages for a piece of ingrain
carpet on which tfie duty would be
$21? Memorial to congress of 40,000 .
Pennsylvania woolen operatives, la
1886.-3 ; . .
Lat is tbe use of tariff when Lynn
shoe factories, paying nearly double .
day wages, can produce for 53 cents
labor a pair of shoes costing 50 cents
to make in England?
Why wool averaged 28 cents in high
tariff times and 32 cents in low tariff
years, though blankets ' were much 0
higher under the tariff?
Why we sdld $776,000 of woolen
goods to countries where England sold
$115,000,000 iu 1885?
Wi y. with navigation laws and pro
tective tariffs, only 17 instead of 90
per cer, (as old) of our commerce is
carried by American ships?
Why blankets are taxed 77 per cent,
and thread lace only .30? Why necef
pitiM bear heavy duties and luxuries
W hy saving bank deposits increased
14 per cent, a year, 1845 60, under'
low tar ff, aud only 8 per cent, a year,
1880-85, under high tariff?
YTby, when the republican tariff
commission recommended at least 20
Eer cent, reduction, the "Conference .
ill" raised the average of duties, so
that they were 46 instead of 43 per
cent, in 1885?
"Tell the truth," Mr. Blaine, "It is
better to be right than to be presN "
Said Ralph Beaumont in a Knights
of Labor meeting: "For twenty-five
years we've had this 'protection' Mr.
Blaine offers us, and we have made
more millionaires and more paupers
under that system than were ever
made in a civilized country cn the
earth in the same time before."
