Jly Dear Sir: I regret esceedimrly that
official duties, just at this time unusually
exacting and important, prevent iny accep
tance of your invitation to attend the
fourth annual banquet of the Iroquois.club
on the Kith inst.
I am much impressed with the import
anee of a thorough and timely discussion
by the people of various questions which
are related to good government and the
prosperity of the country, and which, be
cause they are so related, concern the wel
fare and success of the Democratic party
In the work which must be undertaken of
presenting these questions to the judgment
of our citizens in such a manner as to re
move mi -apprehension and aid a conclu
'Ion, I believe that the Iroqouis club will
prove a mot effective instrumentality.
Hoping th.it the approaching banquet
will lx aTi nccLMnn of pleasure as well as
interest and usefulness,
1 am ever yours sincerely,
Gnov Eli Ci.evej.jl.d.

After the banquet, at which between
two hundred and fifty and three hundred
guests and members of the club sat down,
the following toasts were made and re
sponded to as indicated:
'"Treasury surplus and tariff" Hon. J.
"Public lands the people's heritage for
homes" Hun. W. J. Sparks.
"Great Republic" Hon. L W. Fuller
"The President of the United States"
Hon. Edward S. Bragg.
"Monopoly shall "not rule" Hon. J.
"The sanctity of the American heme the

" The Democratic party'' L. J. Kinue.
"Young men in politics," Hon. F. W.
"American industries, their growth and
prosperity cannot be promoted by unneces
sarv or unequal taxation," Hon. John G
Mr. John G. Carlisle, of Kentucky, was
rm ivtni with great applause, and spoke as
Although the toast just read asserts a
self evident truth, we cannot ignure the
fact that even in this age of philosophical
speculation and practical knowledge there
are men in the front ranks of literature,
politics and business who seriously contend
that the government cm make ik citizen
rich and prosperous by taking them. If
these gentlemen should try to convince the
publicthat the farmer could be nude more
prosperous by increasing the tax on hi.

benefitted by compelling him to pay a high
rate of taxation ou his machinery or his in
come, the absurdity of their position
would be so apperant as to excite universal
ridicule, and vet sum proposition, would
be no more absurd or unreasonable than
the assertion thai the pmperi uf the pen
pie generally can be increased by impoins:
tiLes upon their food, their clothing, th'ir
building materials, their means of trans
portaliou and tool ami implements ued to
their industries. Taes do not get wealth,
they destroy it- All taxation, vshether it
he director indirect, ami no matter how it
may be disguised, or in what manner if
may be e forced, it is ultimately a charge
upon labor, while its immediate and
invariable effect is to withdraw the
i ait amount of the taxation from the pn
luctive industries of the people. While
i: i- equitably imposed for public purposes
ami its proceeds are honestly usl in dc
f raving the necessary expenses and meet
in the just obligations of the government,
all are equally benefitted ami no one ha
right to complain; but when a tax is im
posed upon one part of the people or one
class of industries simply for the purpose t
of increasing the protiis of another part of j
the people or another class of industries, j
or when a tax is so laid j
that ks necessary effect is ti

American Industries and bv these I
mean to include every useful and honest
occupation cannot be promoted by any
system of taxation or any policy of Iegis
tion which discriminates between them
and compels one to contribute a part of its
own earnings to increase tee prohts or
prevent losses in another. There shonld
be no expatriated or persecuted industries
in this country. There should be no ranks
or degrees among the legitimate occupa
tions ot the people, nor ay road to the
favor or bounty of the government not
open to all .-dike.
It is not difficult to see how a system
which prevents competition aud therefore
increased prices, may enable an individual
who has capital involved in a particular in
dustry, to rcaltte profits instead of suffering
losses; but it is manidest that this must ul
ways be done at the expense of the con
sumers of his products, who are also as a
general rule engaged in industrial pursuits.
That taxation for protective purposes
has resulted so far in a continuous waste
of capital and labor in this country is con
clusively shown by the present condition of
the so-called protected industries and by
the history of our legislation on the sub
jert. The early advocates of the system
proposed it only as a temporary expedient
to aid in the permanent establishment of
rr-im indnstri. and in-isted that after a
few years' experience on the bounty of the
,.vciiimfm aiKt the people thev would be
strong enouirh to stand alone. Under the
ntluenre of this anrament the first protec
tive tariff was enacted in IS 10, and
yet afier seventy yerrs have passed
manv of the same industries which then
t-krd temporary asisstance are now de
mandmg more than double the rates of
duty then deemed sufficient and declare
that unless these bounties shall be indefi
nitely continuctl the industries must cease
o exist. According to their own showing
the poliev inaugurated nearlv thrce-quar
ters of a century ago for the purpose of
rendering them independent and self sus
taining has had exactly the opposite effect
The speaker then proceeded to enumer
ate at length what he considered the evils
of the protective system and asserted that
the sum of the people's wealth i- much
Icts than it would have leen under a more
equal revenue system. He then described
iiie natural advantage-, of the country
Inch fehould render" it able to compete
with others. This country, he said, doe
not belong to either the monopolists or the
rommuni-ts, and the people will save it
from both. Between the two there aland
a great and powerful body of enlightened,
conservative, patriotic citizens who respect
equally thexights of capital and labor, who
obey the law s and preserve the publie
peace, and who in spite of all combinations
and conspiracies will ultimately see thai
the principles of justice and equality pre
vail m the legislation of the country.
To this some of us at least are irrevoca
hly pledged, not only bv the traditions and
declaratiot s of the political party to which
we belong, but by a seuse of personal and
official duty which cannot be disregarded
without lxtrayin!r the confidence reposed
in us by the people. Whether in public or
in private life I shall stand bv the pledirt

tunities contribute in every way to the
eirly and complete triumph of revenue re

by paying a tribute to the marvelous stride.

CniCAOO, Xov. 17. A local pnpar prints
this morning an account of an attempt by
unknown parties to poison the family of

It appears that this morning a small boy
brought to the kitchen of Armour's re!
deuce ou Pmirie avenne a paper sack
marked on one side "Be quality of
buckwheat," and on the other "Sample
package." The cook supposed from tne
marks ou the package mat it had come
from the grocery where the fatuity was
supplied regularly, to pet it on a shelf
The butler liappeoed to know thwt Ar
raour had Issued orders not U receive any
ample packages, ran after and caught Lun
on the street. The boy said the pack tt
had been givea him by two men at th s.r
iter of Nalwsh avenue aad Twenty first
street, who he said jwid htm twentv tivx
j-t-nts for delivering It. A.s the boy km w
nothing el-e the butler let hint go. He
4tive nlet that the pttekasfe should nit lv
toueheil until Armour had Ihth roniulit!
Later m the day a gentleman exited at Ar
mour's office and .aid he h:ul overheanl a
strange eauverMitioii betw-en two men on
the corner of Waba4x avenue and Twenty
