liM.UOO of it jro into the national
treasury. All the rest is transferred
to the coffers of a few men who have
a monojHily ol salt boiling. We are at
a loss to conceive how any Con
gressman can frame a decent excuse
for having voted to retain the duty
The tax on coal only yielded the
sum of $519,000 to the treasury last
year. It is a useless and au unnec
essary imposition. Our anthracite
has no rival in the world. The tax
may aid the railroad corporations
which are now engaged in an odious
conspiracy to prevent the production
of anthracite, but that is a strong ar
gument in favor of its speedy repeal.
The owners and workers of our vast
fields of bituminous coal do not need
protection. They have no reason to
! fear competition from the ioor article
wnicli is iroduced in Nova eotia.
Theonly persons in Pennsylvania who
are deeply interested in sustaining
the duty on bituminous coal are ct r-j
tain Trentlemen, most of them inti
mately connected with the Pennsyl
vania railroad, who have a mouopoly
in the business of furnishing Y cst
moreland coal to the gas companies
! of different cities, to far as the tax
j on coal helps them it injures the com
munity by increasing tbe price both
of fuel and light li coal cannot be
dug from our mines and taken to
market without the help of tariff du
ties, it would le impossible to con
ceive of industry which does not
stand in need of protection. The
idea of protecting such a commodity
by means of a tariff seems to be sim
ply preposterous. ' '" x
The only reason why certain Dem
ocratic Congressmen voted to retain
the duties on fait and coal, is that
they fear any break which may !e
made in the chains that monopolists
Lave fastened upon the iimls ot in
dustry. If the existing tariff is tam
pered with it is deemed probable that
tax on iron may ue materially less
ened. The Democrats from Pennsyl
vania who voted for dear salt and
dear coal did so at the direction of
the iron-masters of the State. That
the step was an unwise one we are
fatly convinced. Extreme votes of
that character must lessen the influ
ence of the Pennsylvania delegation,
instead of increasing it. Members
from other States who might be dis
posed to allow a moderate tariff on
iron, will be set against it by this ac
tion of our members. Tbe assaults
of all the Free Trade newspapers in
the country will be. directed airainst
the duty on iron, to preserve which a j
' I I ft lt tint
great and beiiiftcent reformation is the
Senate. It remains: to be seen how
long that body will resist the emphat
ic demand of the people expressed
through their Representatives.
Those Democrats from Pennsylva
nia who voted against the mouoio-
lies iu two prime necessaries of life,
coal and salt, are not merely in ac
cord with the great Democratic par
ty of the country, as tho vote attests,
but they express, the will of nineteen
out of twenty Democrats in the
State of Pennsylvania. The repeal
of the duty is demanded alike by the
consumer and the toiler in the mine.
At this very hour the duty on Nova
Scotia coal is an important auxiliary
of the railroad monopolists in the
warfare which they . arc waging
against the people. They have loud
ly protested, through their organs,
that the free admission of Pietou coal
would give them no concern. This
veto of the Pennsylvania delegation
in Congress proves now lively are
their fears. Rut for the duty on coal
the present 'corner in anthracite
could never have been accomplished."
In the Bedford Gazette of Aprd 20,
1871, Mr. Meyers resumes the argu
ment and ys :
Mr. W. M. .Jrosvtjrnor, of the St
Louis Denifxrat, the organ of the
Missouri Radicals) who was formerly
one of the most fiat-footed of squarc
t.rt il ' protectionists," has turned from
the error of his wavs, and in a ImhA
called " Due proeciiun protect"
shows the manufactuers and laborers
of this country how they deceive them
selves and how thev are deceived bv
the philosophy and i philosophers of
the vrcc!ev school.- The editor of
the Inquirer should buy a copy of this
iKok, read it, put a lump of ice on
his head, and iuit living, if he wouM
be relieved of the terrible pressure on
his brain produced by the tariff hum
A week later April 2", lS.l.in the
same pajter in the Bedford Gaztttn in
replying to an artical of the "Bedford
Inquirer," in favor of protection, Mr.
Meyers makes the following very em
phatic asweli as polite, declarations :
Says the Inquirer, of lost week,
"the Difference (with a big D) be
tween tho free traders who try to
palm themselves off on the country as
Revenue Reformers and the Repub
licans is a very plain one." Here is
richness for you ! Tke difference be
tween the "free traders" and "Repub-j
licans," forsooth! If no "Republi-j
cans" are "free traders," then therw
are but fortv "Reunblicans'' in Con
gress, for that is just about the num
ber that party could muster against
free coal and free salt Out of 12C
so-called ' Republicans" in'Congress,
onlv nlioiit one third belon? to the
Inquirer's pimon pnr. Why is it
that our neighbor insists on making
himself ridiculous ? Does he imag
ine that his readers are not aware
that two-thirds of his partv in Con
gress spit upon the "protection plank
which Oreelev would insert in the
Radical platform? Whv, if the com
inz Radical National Convention
dare to hint at "protection" in the
platform, two thirds of the party will
refuse to stand upon it and will delio
eratelv vote against tbe nominees.
We ask no better opportunity for
Democratic success in 1S72, than
would le afforded bv such a platform.
But the Radical leaders will not com
mit so suicidal on act. Thev will put
Revenue Reform (or as the Inquirer
delights to style it. "free trade") m
their platform, and our neighbor will
stand on it and halloo as loudlr for
it as if he had not wasted gallons of
ink in vain attempts to write it down
The Radical party dares not ignore
the wishes of the farming communi
ties of the West, from which it has
heretofore drawn its chief support at
the nolK and. therefore, will favor
free trade, or doge tbe tariff ques
In order that there mav be no pos
sible misapprebention or mistake
aliout his exact position we append
the following remarkable letter penned
by himself, and published in his own
paper the Patriot of Jnly 7th. 1871.
FREE TEADE IN PENNSYL
The following letter in regard to
the progress of free trade principles,
from B. F. Meyers, member of Con
gress from tbe sixteenth district of
this state is taken from the Free Trad
er for July :
Bedford, Pa., June 17, 1871
Mahlon Sand. -. Dear Sir:
Yours of the 5th inst, inquiring as
to the progress of free trade ideas in
this part of the country, is received.
My reply has Iieen unavoidably de
layed, but I now take pleasure in giv
ing yoa an answer.
