The extremely high duties which
Dlnglcy proposes to collect from wom?
en's dress goods should bo more gen?
erally understood by the women of this
country. It Is they who must suffer
most because of these duties. Here are
a few samples of the Increased duties

Why Inrrrniic the Coal Dntyf
Under the existing tariff bituminoui
coal pa vh 4U cents a ton. The Dlngley
bill proposes to make this 75 cents. In
1805-0 the imports of bituminous coal
Into the United States were 1.343,831
tons. The exports were 2,246.284. The
figures from Cunuda were: Imported
from Nova Scot in. New Brunswick, etc.,
123.4U4 tons; from OncUv, Ontario,
etc., 30,987; from British Columbia,
027,2.17; exports to these three divisions
respectively, 413 tom. 1,072,302 and
3,01)4. Canada now proposes in case tin
Dinglcy rate is imposed to retaliate by
a high duty on our coo), which will
certainly not at i inn late exports. Mere.
Is an export business worth twice as
much ns the corresponding Import busi?
ness, and it is proposed to run the risk]
of ruining the former for the sake ot
screwing $350.000 Uixps out of the Int
tcr. and this on the plea of reviving
American Industry. Cun any stinc in in
. fail to see that, eren assuming that
* imports do not fall off, it Is hardly
J worth while for the soke of a paltry
i $350,000 to tempt Canada into ruining
I an established business nearly twice at
] large as that which Is to yield the tax',
i Yet this is the way in which "the old
> thing works."
Inlqnltona Lumber TnrlB.
"The proposed tariff on lumber," the
Boston Transcript (rep.) says, "is sim?
ply a measure to pick the pockets and
crlish the Industry of a large, useful
and influential class of American citi?
zens. It is uneconomic, unscientific,
suicidal. Tho statements upon which
this schedule was made up nre shown
to have been insidious and misleading.
The result tvill be to strip the country
not of art annually .recurring income,
but of its tvhite pine principal, which
61 present rates Is within ten years of
exhaustion, and also to ruin a large
class of business men In this,country
who deserve better things. It docs not
seem possible that men claiming to
represent the people' tvlf! permit such
a measure to have the force of law. 11
tbey do, it will cease to be folly and be?

Chump Clark, of MinHourl, la not only
cne of the wlttleat men in tJie hotuo of
representatives, but he Ih one of tho
best poalcd on thu tariff question.
In ridiculing some of the rates of tho
Olngley hill thut to him seemed subject
to criticism, he recited how n man of
tho numo of (ioodyeur went, before thu
ways anil meansoomuilttccmid secured
the tariff he wanted by some skillful
palaver about the great Htatesmeu thut
Maine hud produced. Then he paid!
"Mr. Chairman, that, picea of 'soft

poor devil out west, living In a dugout
100 miles from a railroad station, who
voted fo;- MeKlnley under tho deluded
Idea Unit prosperity would come under
his iidministrntlon and who has not
heard of this tariff bill, ciphers It out
that he can build htm a two-room cot?
tage with lumber and Other building
materials at the old ru.tc.p lie goes to the
station to got tho lumber anil finds that
the price has gone, sky high, and he goes
back to his home and says to hin wife:
'My dear, I-am sorry that we must stay
in tho dugout. We cannot build our lit?
tle house. A gTcat man by tin- name of
Gov. Dlnglcy hu? put the price of lum?
ber and other things so high that we
cannot do u\ but, thank find, he bus
left dragon's blood free.' (Ijiughtcr.)
Next year, when my hnndaoine friend
from Iowa (Mr. Dolllver) returns to>
Hint fine agricultural district which hu
rr.proiMMita, some man who has not beef)
able to buy a coat becauiw. of the high
price of woolen cloth will say to his
mighlior: Thcro comcajlolllver, who
put .up the price of woolen goods.* Iltil
the. successful candidate for tho post
office in that district says: 'Oh, hut
Doliiver put dlvl-dlvl on the free list!'
And in chorus they sing: 'Dolllver und

plause on tho democratic side.)
Sup|K>sc the Dlnglcy duties on wool i
would give the woolgrowers all the j
protection claimed and that tho prle?
of wool would actually go Up the full
amount of the duty, which, of courue,
Is absurd. Whnt would bo the effeot
upon the country at large?
Mr. Edward Atkinson, stutlstlclnn,
estimates the annual wool product at
150,000,000 out of n total of $13,200,000,
000 produced by nil the workers of tho
country and the- persons dependent on
the wool Industry at 300,000 out of a
total population of 73,000,000. The
wool duty then nit'ans that out of every
240 persons 230 arc to be "held up" for
the benefit of the other one. This In a
sample of what protection does. Of
course more than 300,000 persons may
sometimes raise a few sheep, but the
interests of these others are more those
of the consumer than of the sheep
raiser, and they would lose more be?
cause of the hicreased cost of woolens
than#they would gnin by the Increased
price of wool.
The protective tariff system Is a farce
when considered in connection with tho
farmer or the worklngman." Will they
ever fully appreciate It?
Jsekssn's Protection Prophecy.
Tho corporation* ami wealthy indi?
viduals who are engaged in large manu?
facturing establishments desire a high

With regard to Chr.lrman Dlngley'a
admission that the. duly on wool will
Increase the price of wool, the Kalisos
City Times says: The consnmer and
not the foreigner, therefore, pays the
tariff tax. It concedes also that the

Hon. William McKinley, Chairman Wayi
Where is the Mhi lue this year who
can head off the westerner* who wnnt
their > hare of protection and foolishly
imagine that they rnn get It by a duty
on hides? It Is perfectly consistent
with the protection system to tux hides,
especially ns the bulk of the tax would
probably go ton few monopoly butcher
nnd ruuclnnen. Mm observe Komo'Ol
the effects upon our ludiistrlrst
The Importations of untaxed hldei
and skins last year were valued at $20,
>!10,25H. The goatskins were Valued Bl
$10,30.1,359. The former were inoxtly
converted Into sole leather, beltlngi
nnd such like heavy material, for which
our native hides nre not thick enough.

manufacture limits, shorn and Irnt.het
goods for our own people cheaper and
better thnn nre made elsewhere In the
world, but we exported finished prod?
ucts of the value of $20,212,730. With?
out free and cheap raw material tlilt
export trade would have been Impossh
