The Hmiale then, at 12:50 o'clock,
tesumed couaidtir.it Ion ol Benutor Mor
rill's resolution, declaring the promise
of making a peper revision of the tar
iff at the preawnt fusion obviously
hopeless and impiacticable, and Mr.
Daea proceeded to address the Hen
ate on tbat em ject.
Tne Secretary of the Treasury, he
e aid, had come into the field and taken
his advanced position on the subject
ot the tariff, carming increased appre
hension and alarm In all the great in
dustries of the land. Sober, canserva
tlve business men, and thoughtful,
aiiiioua, but elusr headed dependents
on these iutereata were now eerie utly
i - n ring whether, on the whole, they
n.;. ht not be wrecked if the theories
anil doctrinei announced in the re
port of the Secretary of the Treasury
were to govern in the revision of the
tarifl. The Secretary of the Treasury
threw overboard entirely, and in so
many words, all ldoa of protection to
American industry. Henceforth, ac
cording (o the Secretary's theories and
dogmas, there was to enter into the
policy that is to control In the fashion
ing of the revenue laws of the future
no idea of protection to American in
dustry. The Secretary's considerations
were not what might be the
effect ol carrying out his views
on home productions; not whether
' they might be advantageous or injuri
ous to the vast Interests invested In
productions in this conntry (more
than $,000,000,000 in 1880) or to the
2,600,000 wsea earners dependent
npontbem. In the mind of the Sec
retary of the Treasury no snch con
sideration was to enter into the ques
tion of the Imposition ot duties. The
Secretary would not remove (he du
ties on etiRar because they amounted,
he said, to only 00 conti per capita;
but he would remove the duties on
wool, although tkrty on y amounted
to 8 cants per capita, aod on reiuly
made clotlilng beemme tl ey only
amounted to 3 ce its per capiia. The
proposition of removing the) duly on
raw materials did nut even meet the
approval of the m inufauturerR, for
whose benefit it was iir-etid.
On this point, Hm.alur Dawts read
from testimony uli-n before the Com
mittee on Ways and Mem", in which
Mr. Whi'nmn, a le-iding woolen man-
nf leturer, d.ftlared I iiim-1.' in furor ol

was treason itself to the great under
lvieg interests and proapenty of the
coiinirr on which its future depended,
and by which a oe if s'abiliiy could
be mainiained. He who impaired and
weukered the;e Indnstiies came very

Those who met the iigncisot tie
pnt were capaV.ie -1 erupt) iug with
the mob'ems c f tl e future. In the
jjieat struggle f r the poseersion of the
opportaBitiM oflered to homeiodnav
trie o4 home labor, they turned to
three who had lifted labor from degra
dation ard servitude to dignity and
honor, and wbose policy had devel
oped the otrength and wealth and
greatnees of ti e cation. He should,
therelore, ask for the adoption ot the
rrsiiotiou which he had offered.
Senator McPherion said that there
were but two metbodi of disposing of
the su'plui revenue. One was ex
travagant appropriations and the
other a r by a reduction of taxitiou.
For l.lmi-elf be was in favor ol the
second ternBtive. The Banner from
Ohio (Sherman) bad snggeeied iu his
speech, t'e other day, a policv by
which $';4 000,000 oi revenue c"uld be
avoided by atriking off the tax on

Senator declared that the duties on
sutar and on wool were the only pro
tection which tha agricultural inter
ests enjoyed. He (McPhers in) was
opposed to the removal ol the duty on
bo gar, and predicted that (with that
duly retained) nine-tenths ot the
sugar consumed In this country would
be prodnoei here. He would alai re
tain a duty on the high qualities of wool
which are produced in the United
States, bat he would remove it from
the cheep equalities ot wool that are
not raisi d here and that are ued in
the maiiiifa-tare ot carpets and chta i
fabrita. He was a protectionist to
tbeext-ntof giving to t' e labor ot
this country all the protection that
it needed to oompete wilh foreign la
bor. He was in avor of higher piicea
for American labor. God lorbid that
he would ever consent to putting
Amcric-n labor on a par wi n the
pauper h'.tor of any coaatry. But ha
was in lavor ol giving to labor the
raw material that would enable it to
cimpeto wth any country. In an al
lusion to toe Kaighta of Labor, he
said tbat that orgmlaation, provided
it adhered lo the principle! on which
it waj l-ma leil, would be longest lived
aud with the mo it hentfldal results cf
any oruan'sition since the world be
gun, lie was in favor of a fair ravis:on
ot the tariff, and an immediate one.
U.B vas In favor of fioch a revision aa
would not permit an annual surplus
of $100,(00 01. He was ready when
any aocli bill would be presented to
take op every article on the list and
adjust each one in a waythat would
give protec Ion to the labor employed
In the various lndu-triia. He wnuli
apply U every industry the same
principle tbat naa been ap
plied lo the silk manufac'ur
in Indastry. There were about
a hundred silkmllls in tbe city of
rateraosi, W. J. The raw material
wa admitted free of duty, and the
conHt-ajaeace w s that no more pros
perons mannfaolure could be found

ing ailk at L-yons, France, tne very
heart cl the silk manufacturers of the
world. Why was not the same prin
ciple applied to tha hatters of New
ioikr II those 10.000 operatives ban
their raw mateiiaLfree they would
flood the world wTth ehtap hats.
This waa the Democratic policy, the
American policy, the policy which be
wanted toees engrafted in the next
tariff bill. He was opposed fo the
starving of tkeee 10,000 hat operatives

Senator Merrill moved the reference
of his resolution to the Committee on
Senator Beck oppoejd such refer
ence, and suggested that Senators on
both si (I (a should urge on their
friends in the House to pass some
tariff meadow so aa to bring the ques
tion before the Senate in some prac
tical manner ai:d thus open the doon
fairly to dtbata. He was not wedded

With all their pretenmg of aiding

If ti were merely robbing the laborers
