THE FATE OF DEMOCRACY;
1T8 HISTORY FOR THE PAST ONE
First Made Necessary by England's Oppo
sition to the Establishment of Manufac
tures la the Colonies Changes that Have
Been Made for Good and Bad.
Richard W. Thompson, of Indiana, was
a conspicuous figure in American politics
for many years before he became secre
tary of the navy in President Hayes' cabi
net: The lively interest which he has
always felt in revenue and industrial sub
jects, coupled with the knowledge that
the tariff is the most absorbing issue now
before the people, doubtless impelled him
to write a book entitled "History of the
Protective Tari Laws." Tho fundamen
tal facts and statistics upon whieh the
author has elaborated upon interestingly
and with as little bias as possible for a
man who Is firmly convinced as to the
right or wrong of the subject, have been
carefully fflesued and compiled from gov
ernment documents, histories, biographies
of great tariff legislators and from pro-ceedinga-of
congress as found in Tho Con
gressional Globe and The Congressional
Record. Here aro some of the salient
points of the work. .
estgxajtd's self protection.
Themore intelligent and public spirited
colonists, even in tho earlier days of Brit
ish domination in what are now the At
lantic seaboard states, were aware of tho
benefits which would result to them and
their neighbors from a wise and thorough
development of such natural resources as
they saw the country contained. Eritish
policy, however, prevented them from es
tablishing any industries which would
offer competition to those existing in the
mother country. In 1699 parliament en
acted that- "no wool, yarn or woolen
manufactures of the American planta
tions shall bo shipped thence, or even
laden, in order to be transported, on any
pretense whatever." Twenty years later
parKament declared that "the erecting of
manufactories in the colonies tends to
lessen their dependence upon Great
Britain." In 1745 the British -board of
trade reported to parliament that tho
Americans had begun to manufacture
paper, which, the board declared, "inter
feres with the profits made by the British
merchants." Other manufactures were
also begun In the colonies, and that board,
learning of the fact, petitioned parliament
to do something to prevent this.
Then began the first positive measures
by the British government to stamp out
the enterprising spirit of the colonists.
Tho colonial governors, on tho direction
of parliament, began an inquiry into tho
condition of American manufactures, and
reported that cloths for domestic use,
leather and a "little poor iron" wero made
here. This was deemed to be "prejudicial
to tho trade and manufactures of Groat
Britain." Parliament therefore, in 1732,
prohibited the eocporation from the colo
nies of any articles which would interfere
with the sale of like articles in England.
Nobody who had not served an apprentice
ship was allowed to mako hats here, and
the number of apprentices was limited to
two in each case. Pig iron exportation
was permitted because English mill own
ers required it, but no mills for rolling
iron were allowed to bo built in the col
onies. HOW TUB COLONISTS WERE ROBBED.
The active opposition by England to tho
establishment of manufactures in the
colonies, which was begun in 1732, contin
ued until tho colonies gained their inde
pendence. Ileavy penalties wore provided
for making any of tho articles whoso
manufacture was prohibited by parlia
ment, and this interdict covered every
commodity' which could compete with
British made goods. The navigation laws
forbade tho exportation from, or importa
tion into, tho colonies of any articles ex
cept in British ships. This regulation
was adopted to prevent the colonists from
building up a commercial marine. Tho
fixed purpose of England was to keep the
colonies in industrial servitude, and to es-
Under such adverse circumstances it
was natural that the manufactures of tho
country, even at tho close of tho war for
independence, should have been both
crude and insignificant. As a conse
quence tho country, as a whole, had to '
buy abroad much more than it could sell. '
This is shown bv tho followincr table,
compiled by a British authority, giving
the amount of this country's exports to
and imports from England in tho seven
years humediateby following the revolu-
The country, in the seven years named,
bought from England $52,S72 8o worth
of goods of all kinds more than it sold to
England. Such a condition of things, of
course, could not bo continued without se
riously impairing the prosperity of the
nation. The necessity, therefore, of en
coaraging the establishment of manufac
tures was apparent. It was the desire of
the people that tho country should make,
so for as natural resources permitted,
nearly all the essential commodities which
it . consumed. Industrial independence,
indeed, was one of the leading inlhiences
which impelled tho colonists to seok polit
ical independence, as it certainly was the
dominant consideration with tho people in
abolishing the confederation and founding
a "more prfect union" under the consti
tution. TUB PTOST TABTFP CHAMPIOJCS.
Under the confederation the country
had what was virtually froo trado. As a
consequence the domestic market was
flooded with foreign manufactures, and
tho people were thus deprived of tho
ability t pay for these goods and of tho
incentive to attempt to mako them for
themselves. Industries of all kinds wero
depressed from this cause. The people in I

The primary purpose of the bilL both
in the shape in which Madison introduced
it and In the form which it afterward as
sumed, was for the collection of sufficient
revenue to support the government and
to pav its debts, while the protection of
manufactures was a secondary considera
tion. Each purpose, however, was sep
arate froin the other and involved, a .dia-
nnctanl independent power tinder the
constitution. Many of the members of
the First congress had been members also
of the convention which framed the con
stitution. The fact that nobody In that
congress even so much as intimatod that
the constitution was being infringed by
the passage of an act expressly discrimi
nating in favor of domestic industries,
and that that act was signed by President
.Washington, who had presided over the
cell Derations of the constitutional con
vention, furnishes undoubted evidence of
the constitutionality of protective tariffs.
Tho tariff bill mentioned was signed by
the president on July 4, 1789.
Shortly after the enactment of the first
tari5 law the house of representatives of
the First congress passed a resolution in
structing the secretary of the treasury,
who at that time was Alexander Hamil
ton, to prepare and report a plan for tho
"encouragement and promotion of such
manufactures as will tend to render the
United States independent of all other
nations for essential, particularly for
military, supplies." The resolution, which
was adopted in response to the recom
mendations of President Washington,
evinces the settled purpose of congress to
mako the protective system complete and
permanent. Hamilton's report was pro
found, logical and exhaustive, and it still
remains a classic on this subject. He had
not only to announce and formulate a
policy, but had to confute the arguments
of the free traders who had, even at that
early day, come into existence. The
methods by which ho contended
that manufacturing would benefit so
ciety as a whole may bs summarized thus:
It would create and promote (1) division
of labor; (2) provide an extension of the
use of machinery; (3) furnish additional
employment for classes of the community
who could not otherwise engage in the
manufacturing business; (4) promote emi
gration from other countries and the con
sequent increase of population; (5) furnish
greater ecope for diveraity of talents and
dispositions in the d i versification Tefj in
dustries; (G) afford an ampler add more
varied field for industrial entnarise than
could otherwise bo secured, anal(7) while
creating in socio instances now supplies
and new demands would in all caam Bake
both supply and demand steady'ajMTw-
As a result of tho recommendatio&tof
Washington and Hamilton, and the de
sires of an overwhelming majority of
Gongress, and also, undoubtedly, of tho
people, rates wero increased on dutiable
good's and the number of the articles sub
ject to duty expanded by the changes
which were made in the tariff every year
or two until the war of 1812 too1! place.
During that contest a special act doubled
rates." As a consequence, while exports
were only about a third as great as im
ports in seven years during the free trade
period ending with 1790, their average
was twice as great as imports in the seven
years beginning with 1795 in the pro
CHANGES BETWEEN 1816 AND 1S33.
The leading tariff acts passed in the
twenty years immediately subsequent to
tho war of 1812 were those of 181G, 1834,
1823 and 1833. The tariff of 1816, which
was highly protective, had for one of its
most conspicuous advocates John C. Cal
houn, of South Carolina, with Daniel
Webster, of Massachusatts, as a leading
opponent. Both these men subsequently
changed their ground on this question.
Calhoun becoming tho leader of tho free
1 traders, and Daniel Webster becoming
one 01 tho most prominent and outspoken
champions of protection. In the vote on
tho tariff of 1S1G sectionalism appeared
for tho first time. Tho earlier tarins had
comparatively little opposition. The vote
in the house on the act of 1810 stood SS
in favor to 54 against, and in the senate
23 in favor to 7 against. Tho south led
in tho opposition, 31 of its members in tho
house voting no to 14 yes. A majority of
each of the sections of tho north favored
tho act, Now England being less pro
nounced in that direction than the middlo
states and the west.
The tariff of 1S1C is sometimes called
tho Calhoun tariff. A few comparatively
unimportant changes were made in it a
few years later. With these exceptions it
was in force until 1824, when tho Clay

as four years earlier, being in opposition.

some articles and raised them on others.

Tho act of 1S33, which was called tho

the south, especially South Carolina, whose
opposition to tho protective duties previ

movement. In that movement Calhoun,

THE MORRILL TARIFF.
The Morrill tariiT was signed by Presi- I
dent Buchanan on March 2, lSol, two '
io.w hafora his mtlrenjent- -front ofSnA. '
This act changed all the rates previously
existing, and was by far the most elabor
ate enactment of its class ever devised In
any country up to that time. Many
changes were made during the war, rates
in nearly all cases being raised. Reduc
tions began to be made in 1872, tea and
coffee, which had been dutiable since 1881,
being put on the free list that year.
Duties, too, were lowered on woolen and
cotton goods, wool, iron, glass and other
articles. The tendency of duties since that
time has been steadily downward. The
latest change in the tariff was made by
the act signed on March 3, 1883, which re
duced most of the existing rates, and abol
ished the internal tax on many articles.
This is a brief and rapid survey of tariff
legislation during the post one hundred
years. On some of the points in the later
history of the subject the book does not
touch. It gives, however, a full, unparti
san and accurate account of the various
acts down to and including the passage of
tho Morrill tariff, as well as the influences
which led to the adoption of each and the
consequences which have resulted.
Tho introduction of frea trade in Eng
land has obliged that country to maintain
an oppressive syBtem of direct taxation to
obtain the means for the support of the
government. Mr. Thompson is convinced
that a like policy will follow the adoption
of free trade in the United States. Taxes
in some form would have to be levied. The
government consumes much, but it pro
duces nothing. Taxation, therefore, for
its support is absolutely necessary, and
all are compelled to bear its burdens. The
taxation which is the most readily and
cheaply collected, and which is least op
pressive to the people, he contends, is that
which is collected at the custom house.

Tariff reformers are very fond of crying
"Look at Germany" whenever it is sug
