iiav the Interest upon our national debt, and
to liquidate the claims of our pensioned
soldiers who fought so bravely in defense
of this Union. Those expenses, amounting
to three hundred million dollars must be
met annually, and our only resources for
raising this" amount i by protection,
direct taxation or inland levenue. Ki.iisas
holds an important position in tho Union,
being the seventh largest stato and holds
first place a- for wheat production this
vear, and sbould ve bo force-d to nii-c this
amount by direct taxation, Kansas would
have to contribute ten millions of dollars, or
five dollars on each one hundred dollars in
our state. Our Democratic Iriends talk
about our people being bow e-d down bv ex
cessive taxation but how would thev lt-el if
forced to pav the direct tax of five dollar
on each hundred of their possessions. Then
protection benefits the manufacturer, the
agriculturalist, and most important of all,
American labor, for is it jut that tlie Cana
dian farmer who lias no interest in our
countrv and has neve-r marched to the tune
of tlie Vnion, that he should ship his wheat
over heio without taxation to compete with
the Kansas farmer w ho pas taxes. A pro
tective tarilV i- in the be-l interests of the
producer, and at the same time a bun fit to
the consumer. When xou consider the con
tinual reign of prosperity reaching fioni the
close of the war till the present day, j on
must concede that some powerful agency is
at work. I can consistently compare "the
period bitween 18C0 and the present with
the previous twenty x ears under a Demo
cratic free trade administration, and leave
you to decide for yourselves. Our agricul
tural intere-ts now exce-ed tho xalue of
Great Britain's by ten billion of dollars,
while previous to the war we
were in tho minority. The Demo
cratic party appear to think we
Republicans take too much credit upon
ourselves for tho existing prosperity, and
stato tho credit is aleme due to Provfdence,
who caused tho rams to fall and gave n
bounteous harvests. It is truo that Provi
dence causes the rain to fall alike upon the
just and the unjust, for if such were not tho
case our Democratic friends would bo much
drv cr than thev are laughter; but did not
the same Prov idenee control tho universe
beforo this administration assumed pow
er! None will make such a bold
and utterly false statemmt as tleit
manufacturing is not fostered by protection
I will but say that our manufacturing intcr--sts
exceed those of Great Britain bv one
billion of dollars.
I now come to the tanner w ho is a pro
ducer. AVe raise three hundred millions of
buhels of wheat, annually, and consume
but two hunered and seventy millions, leav
ing a balaiico ot thirtv millions, which must
beexportesj and meet i iiconi)etitioii with
the entire world and ascending to the sup
ply 1110 j.iveqooi merchant arbitrarily hxc
a value upon it which frames a basis" ot the
price- paid tor the entire crop. Now by fos
tering and encouraging manufacture"! the
consumption xvould be increased and evx
IMirting unnccessarv, and eon-eqiicntly a
much better price would be received. A"few
xears ago 1 vva xi-iting New Hamp-htre.
and met "a farmer in the vicinity of Man
chester, and 111 conversation with him I
asked him if he raied any wheat and what
he received for it He said. Yes; we raised
a large amount of wheat and received ono
dollar and twcnty-fivo cents pT bushel.
"Whv , 1 said. how is it x ou recoiv c so much
for v ours, while Kansas farmers receive but
eighty cents per bushel for theirs. Oh!
that is casilv explained, he aid. we have a
market right at home. Manchester is a
large manufacturing town, and the consum
ers, arc right at hand. Should Kan-as be
come a large manufacturing state, and there
arc no reasons whv she should not, our far
mers would find a home market and prices
would increase in consequence. Does not a
protective tariff benefit the laboring man in j
his wages by keeping the pauper labor good .
