OUR WASHINGTON LETTER, j
Special CorrctHiontlvuce of Intelligencer.
Washington, D. C., April 27, 1003.
Tho breaking out of open - hostilities
between Governor Odell and Senator
Platt, of New York, lias produced a
politjeal sensation hero in Washington.
Tho Republicans are really alarmed
lest tho Empire Stnto Republicans bo
como involved in another great politi
cal feud which may rival in intensity
tho memorable Roscoe Conkling epis
ode. They know that such a feud
would have a far-reaching effect upon ,
the politics of the State and tho Nation.
Coming just at a time when the Dem- !
ocracy of New York ia united and in
splendid lighting trim, the Republicans
feel and know that it means defeat in ;
tbo State and perhaps in tho Nation,
for, if Now York State goes Demo
cratic in 1003, it means that the States
of Connecticut, Now Jersey, Delaware
nnd J/arylaud will swing into tho same
column and present the same old align
ment of a solid South with these States
of thu East and some State of the mid
dle West, perhaps Illinois, which
would elect a Democratic president.
This fact hs? throws s S?*ro 'nto thA
Kop ub li can H as big as an Iowa barn.
It is known here that President Roose
velt, before he started*-West, tried his
best to patch up a truce between Sena
tor Platt and Governor Odell and to
obviate tho pending conflict. Several
conferences were held at the White
House with that object in view, but,
ns events have shown, the President's
efforts toward peace was fruitless.
Tbo rupture that has now become
open, has been observed by politicians
and commented upon tor several
mouths. Senator Platt knew that it
was just a question of a short time
when he would have to fight it out
with Governor Odell, and bis friends
had advised him to start the ball roll
ing at onco. Tho old man is not as
fond of fighting now as he once was
and be preferred to wait until Odell
opened tho game. Now that the gov
ernor has forced the fighting the old
Solitical warrhorse will get into his
ghting rig and take one more whirl
at his enemies. The result remains to
be seen. But, whatever that result,
whether "Onssio kill Roderigo or Rode
rigo kill Cassio," it all makes for the
good of Democracy and therefore the
There ia great rejoicing in the office
of the American protective Tariff Lea
?rue, in New York. It has compelled
'resident Roosevelt to chango front
on the question of tariff revision and
it is now boasting of ita achievement.
It is no exaggeration to say that the
most powerful instrument in thia coun
try today for the moulding of public
sentiment is the organization of man
ufacturers which Dears that name.
Tho American Protective Tariff Lea
gue defeated tho Cuban reciprocity
legislation of the first sesssion of the
Fifty-seventh Congress, emasculated
the Cuban reciprocity treaty ratified at
the last session, and will attempt at
the next session to further negative
that treaty. It has thus far prevented
the ratification of the reciprocity trea
ties negotiated by Mr, Knsson. It bas
combatted the "Iowa idea" so success
fully that President Roosevelt, who
started out with a declaration that he
would "stand pat" on the J/cKinley
Eol icios, which included rec iprocity,
as now concluded to "stand pat"
with tho high tariff faction of his
party. This Teague has a membership
of 1,000 including some of the most
prominent manufacturers of iron, steel,
cotton goods, woolen goods, cutlery,
Yankee notions, leather goods, hosiery,
gloves, varnish silks, etc., in the entire
The 1,000 member* pay iq years
when important ?lection? are on, a"
minimum annual assessment of $100
each. This minimum fund of $100,
000 is swelled by additional contribu
tions ns the occasion demands. The
object of the American Protective
Tnrill'League is to create sentiment
in this country favorable to the main
tenance of the protective tariff and to
prevent the nbatcmentof existing tariff
?ati's. lt is the personalihcalion of
the "stand pat" iden, lt opposes the
crossing of ? "t," tho dotting of an "i,"
or the changing of a punctuation mark '
in the existing tariff law. The league I
effects its purpor.es sud accomplis hos ?
its object of moldiug public sentiment i
by working upon tho readers of the j
country through n mnsterful By?le&i ,
of newspaper syndicates. It boasts
that tho combined circulation per week
of the newspapers using the editorials
and other mntter sent ont by league
WOB 0,000,000. Approximately that re- !
presents 24,000,000 readers per week, i
AU this matte; is sent out lu stereo-'
typed form and free to tho papers de-1
siring to uso it. Besides this the lea?]
gue publishes n weekly paper called j
the "American Economist" which ls '
sent out to all the leading papers of I
tho country and has a circulation of
more than 14,000 per week. It voices
the most intelligent thought' on the
tariff question from the standpoint of
protection and its sophistries are re*
Iiroduced as editorials in many of the
eading papera of tho nntion. From
the abovo eau bo gathered an idea of
tho immense engine used by the pro
tective tariff interests of the country
to keep the people fooled and behov
ing that they are getting somu benefit

therefore it baa no propaganda mid no
money to establish one by which it?
ideas of good government can bo con
stantly pounded into tho peuple. If
the Democratic party could have had
even 1,000 pu per? for I he post ton years
exposing the fallacies of high protec
tion, the farmers of the country, who
au?er most fi om this one sided game,
would today bu almost unanimous in
their oppostion to protection. We
have no fountain of wealth filched from
the pockets of the people from which
to draw and therefore tho people do
not get the truth. They get only the
honiod sophistries from nu organized
baud of public plunderers ?md go on
"letting well enough alone" until tho
band is bursting with boodlo. When
the members are gorged and get to
quarreling among themselves as they
are now doing then the people will
begin to get a glimpse ot tho truih.
It remains to bo seen how much longer
the people will stand'for thia sort of
thing aud be beguiled by this Ameri
can Protective Tariff League. It got
them to puss the McKinley and the
Dingley bills with which to abstract
money from their pockets, it defeated
the Cuban reciprocity measure and
now it has senred the President of the
United States by threatening to defeat
him unless he abandoned tho "Iowa
idea" and stands for all they desire in
tho way of high protection. Tho peo
ple eau stop it, but the probability is
thev wont until their bellies become
A lew days ago I called to tho atten
tieri of a United States Senator who
had taken a deep interest'in the pass
age,of tho so-called Philippine tariff
bill that died a natural death at the
hands of the Senate during tho short
session, tho fact that tho President in
his Minneapolis speech had made tho
statement that the Democrats of the
Senate were primarily responsible for
the defeat of that bill, and had spoken
of it as a distinctly humorous sido to
the defeat of tho bill that men who be
lieved in a reduction of the tariff had
opposed this reduction. I was told by
this senator that the President was in
error in making any such statement
He said that there were only three
Democrats in the entire Senate who
opposed the passage of the bill and
that ali those who expressed them
selves on tho measure were in favor of
its pnssage as the best they could get, I
though they till favored absolute free ;
trade with those islands. He said the
truth of matter is that the bill was de
feated by the friends of the adminis
tration. If they had pressed the bill
any time during the latter part of the
month of last January it could have
been passed, but they were BO intent
on defeating statehood for the terri
tories asking to come in and which
they had promised should como in,
that they were unwilling to take auy
chances on a vote on the bill. They
nostDoned consideration until the very
last day of the session when the oppo
sition of any one niau is fatal to any
bill and both the friends and tho
enemies of the bill knew this. The
bill died of neglect, if not worse, at
the bauds of its pretended friends and
the President ot the United States is
guilty of perverting history for the
sake of a finely turned sentence in a
The postolllco investigation is still
in progress, but since the return of the
Postmaster General a padlock has been
placed on the mouthe of all bis subor
dinates. The chances are that the
only way the people of tho country
will ever get a iook at tho results of
this investigation is by congressional
demand and tba(<demand will not be
made by a Republican Congreso. What
