Editor Times and Democrat:
I have collected and collated a few
facts concerning the tariff, which I de
sire to place before your readers, not
with a view of enlightening them by
anything 1 may say, but with the hope
?of creating sufficient interest in the
subject to cause investigation and dis
cussion. Entire originality of thought,
or expression, is not claimed, for the
subject is one about whjch, so iuuoh
has been said and written, that any
thing further, original, can hardly be
said or written. While some of the
ideas and expressions which may fol
low are the creation of my own mind,
many are the product of far abler heads.
The tariff is a subject which few
persons understand, and one which
more vitally concerns all persons, than
any other economic issue which could
arise before the people. It is a subject,
the mere mention of which seems dull
and uninteresting to most persons, but
one which, if fully comprehended and
understood, would be of more interest
and deeper concern to them, than all
other political subjects combined.
Tariff, means tax. A protective
tariff, a tariff for revenue, &c, means
just simply different degrees of tax
^ Tariff is a tax levied by the govern
Rnent on imported goods. A revenue
(?griff, or a tariff for revenue only, as it
Brauore commonly called, is a tax or
HPffy levied on imported goods for the
^support of the government. A tariff
on tea, coffee, and the spices would be
a revenue tariff, because these products
are not raised in the TT?ited States, and
when imported, the increased prices
paid for them by the consumers, go
into the United States treasury. The
duty on an article, is the rate or per
centage charged on it when imported.
A pFotective tariff, is a tax not in
tended solely for raising revenue for
the government, but is also intended
to prevent or restrict the importation
of foreign goods. The difference be
tween a revenue and a protective
tariff, is, that a revenue tariff is a tax
on the consumer of imported goods for
the support of the government, and a
protective tariff, is a tax on the con
sumer of domestic goods for the sup
portof private manufacturers.
The duty on imported goods is paid
by the consumers of imported goods,
and is not shared by the producers of
the goods. The duty is advanced by
the importer, who adds it to the price
of the goods, and this duty is paid back
to the importer by those who buy the
goods from him. and finally by the con
sumers of the imported goods*.
The protectionists argue that pro
tective tariffs are advantageous, that
they add to the general prosperity of
the country, that they create industries,
give employment to labor, and in
crease the rate of wages. This argu
ment is false from beginning to end.
Protective tariffs, or protective taxes
as we had just as well call them, are
inimical to the general prosperity of
any country which adopts them. JL*ro
.tective tariffs, which have behind them
what are called the "vested interests"
of the country, are dangerous to Re
publican institutions, because they
foster monopolies, and monopolies in
variably gravitate towards centraliza
These "vested interests" rule the
?rfiguntry now, if we can believe the as*
. seftl?xfs-of some df the most'distjn
f guished men in the country. Professor
' Sumuer of Yale College, asserts, and
the assertion hits never been contra
dicted, so far as I know, much less dis
proved, that the "Bessemer Steel As
sociation alone, pays annually over
live millions of dollars to control the
tariff legislation of the country, and
k that the Congress has not yet been
f elected to resist the influence of this
amount of money." The North "Western
Lumber Association, as it styles itself,
boasts, that it is making five millions
of dollars clear, per annum, on account
of the high duty on lumber. Latterly,
every Congress leaves room for Pro
fessor Sumner's assertion to be credited
as true. In the 49th Congress forty
one Democrats voted with the protec
tionists, and defeated the Morrison bill,
and just the other day, thirty-five
Democrats, again, under the leadership
of the Pennsylvania Republican in
Democratic disguise, S. J. Randall,
voted with the protectionists, and de
feated even the consideration of an
other very mild featured bill by Mr.
Protection injures a country in vari
ous ways. It injures it by preventing
profitable trades or exchanges. There
is no use of a law to prevent unprofita
ble trades. Men will soon find out un
profitable trades of themselves, arid
abandon them of their own accord.
Protective tariffs are intended to
benefit the manufacturers of the pro
tected articles, by increasing their pro
fits, and of course, if the profits of the
manufacturers of the protected articles
are increased, the profits of those en
gaged in all other trades must be re
duced as they are compelled to give a
larger part of their earnings for a given
quantity of the protected article. Take
an example. Tor instance, if one hun
dred und fifty pounds of cotton will
i buy. or which is the same thing, ex
L change for one ton of iron, under free
I trade, and a duty of five dollars
?per ton be put on iron, thereby raising
Rhe price of iron five dollars* per ton,
Inder protection, making it say twenty
T.ollars per ton, it will then take two
hundred pounds of cotton to buy a ton
of iron, and the iron manufacturer is
made richer, by compelling the cotton
producer to give one third more for a
ton of iron, than he would have to give
under free trade.
But protectionists say, that protec
tion does not raise the price of the pro
tected articles, as home competition
soon makes the price of the protected
articles lower than they would be under
free trade. Protection, either raises
the price of the protected article, or it
does not. If it raises the price of the
protected article, then the consumers
of the protected article arc injured,
and if it does not raise the price of the
protected article, then the manufacturer
of the protected article are not benefit
ted, and hence what would Ik; the use
of any protective tariff at all.
The plea of the protectionists, that
protection increase-; the rate of wages,
is false. The history of all protective
tariffs, in this country and Europe,
*?oufirms the rule, that as tariffs go up,
wages go down, and as tariffs go down,
wages go up, if not nominally, in pur
chasing power. The doctrine that
taxes of any kind increase wages is an
tagonistic to the plainest principles of
All wealth, whether of individuals,
communities or nations, is the product
of labor. A man may inherit, or steal
a fortune, but that makes it none the j
less the product of labor?the labor of
his predecessors. An inheritance of a
hundred thousand dollars, would only
represent, perhaps, the performance of
a hundred thousand days labor of our
ancestors. Money then, or gold and
silver, which is the only real money, is
a measure of labor, or value, and is as
much the product of labor sis anything
else that is produced. But money does
not necessarily coustitute wealth. As
Adam Smith well says, "any country
that hsu> the wherewithal to buy gold
and silver will never be in want of
these metals. They are to be bought
for a certain price like all other com
modities, and as they are the price of
all other commodities, so sdl other com
modities are the price of these metals."
? The protectionists' plea, that we m ust
have high protective tariffs in order to
create industries, and thereby give em
ployment to labor, will not bold. In,
the first place, taxation never yet
created an industry. It may change
the channels of industry. You may
tax- B, and give it to C, thereby incresis
ing C's power to create an industry, and
give employment, but you at the same
time deminish B's ability to do the
same thing, in the same proportion
that vou increase C's ability to perform
You may change the chsmnels, or na
ture of an "industry, by robbing by tax
sitiou si thoussmd Peters to pay one
Paul, but there is no justice or gain in
this. Besides, the mere performance of
lsibor within itself does nut constitute
wealth, or create gain. If it did, a man
could get rich by removing a pile of
rubbish to and fr?. A man might carry
a pile of bricks between two given
points sill of his life, sind he would
nsver become rich, or gain anything by
the process. It'is the product of labor,
the results of labor, emansiting from
intelligent and well directed effort,
! that enriches an individual, communi
ty or. country.
* All taxes, whether protective taxes,
or taxes for revenue only, must be paid
out of the surplus, or net earnings of
lsibor, or the gains of exchanges. This
is :m- economic axiom. There is no
other source from which tsixes can
arise, sind of course the more taxes you
levy, the more you take of the surplus
or net earnings of lsibor, and just to
the extent, that the people of any coun
try are taxed beyond what is absolute
ly" necessary to* carry ou the govern
ment, just to that extent are the people
made poorer. The idea of ;i country try
ing to enrich itself by tsixation, is just
as absurd, just as unreasonable sis a man
grasping his own boot straps or his own
toes and trying to rsiise ! "mself.
The argument which the high tsiriff
people advance, that if the manufac
turers sire allowed larger profits'on
their goods, by taxing others for their
benefit, it will enable them to give
higher wages to their employers is only
a snare to catch the working people.
If you increase the fees of a lawyer or
doctor from two thousand to* four
thousand dollars a year,do you suppose
they double the salsiries of their clerks.
Or if a builder offers to put up a house
for you lor one thoussmd dollars, sind
you kindly give him fifteen hundred for
the job, do you suppose he divides the
extra profit among his masons and car
penters, and is it to be supposed that
manufacturers are more generous than
anybody else? Human nature is the
same in all trades and professions.
Tsixes never did sind rfever will increase
the rsite of wages of the laborer. Wages
depend upon the productiveness of la
bor, the amount of capital available for
its employment, and the number of
laborers competing for work, sind not
upon the generosity of man.
We read about labor strikes, riots,
mills closhg up, and working people by
the million being discharged and
thrown out of employment. From
what cause ? From overproduction we
are told. This is a misnomer. There
can be no such thing as overproduction
or producing too much. All increase
of production is an increase of wealth,
and there need be no fear of our ever
becoming too wealthy. The mills
which we read about being closed, are
closed for the want of a market for
their products, and not from overpro
duction, and this want of a market
arises, from too much protection; and
yet we hear men talk about inter-State
commerce, and a home market. What
wo need is world commerce, and a
world's market. It is protection that
is closing up the cotton sind woolen
mills of New England, and the mines
of Ohio sind Pennsylvania. It is pro
tection that is causing riot and blood
shed, and the troops to be ordered out.
It is protection that is starving thous
ands of men and women and children
in this fertile country of ours. It is
protection, which under the guise of
regulating commerce, has pampered sind
fostered by aggrandizement, a brood of
monopolists, who have caused the most
infamous and unjust set of tariff laws
to be put upon the statutes of the
United States, that the average Con
gressman could devise, or monopolists'
money buy. PAYSAX.

Fatal Termination of a Qnnrrel Between
Lewiedale, July 10.?Yesterday,
about 12 o'clock, Messrs. Bolivar J.
Hayes and Atuos 0. Banks, who had
beeu to town on business, started for
home, Mr. Banks ahead in a two-horse
wagon, accompanied by two negro men,
Mr. Hayes a short distance behind in
his buggy. Mr. Hayes requested Mr.
Banks to take a seat in his buggy as far
as they travelled the same road. The
invitation was accepted raid Mr. Banks
got into Mr. IPu'es's bugjy. They had
driven only a o.iorfc distance before they
reached the forks of the road, at which
they were to separate. It appears that
as they were about to separate some
misundersLauding occurred which called
into play the ready knife and pistol. In
the scuttle which ensued Mr. Hayes stab
bed Mr. Banks in the right shoulder,
whereupon Mr. Banks tired a thirty
two calibre pistol, the ball taking effect
in the right side of Mr. Hayes, passing
through his liver. Mr. Hayes immedi
ately "drove on toward home, saying,#as
he left. i;I am killed," Mr. W. 0.
Barr, who was also on his way home
from town and had joined the parties
just before the difficulty, at once return
ed to town and reported the matter
Drs. Crosson, of Lewiedale, aud Hill,
of Edgefield. both hastened to the relief
of the wounded. Mr. Banks was found
at the place where the difficulty had oc
curred and his wound, which was found
to be painful, but not very dangerous,
was at once dressed. Three gentlemen
from town rode on a short disLmce and
found Mr. Hayes's hat in the road.
About a mile further on Mr. Hayes was
found, lying on the road side near a
branch where he had stopped to get
water, aud after finding that he was too
weak to get back into his buggy, he lay
down and his horse went of!" and left
him. In a few minutes the doctors ar
rived. His wound was also examined.
He was placed in a buggy and driven
home, where a more thorough diagnosis
of Ins wound was made, which was pro
nounced mortal. Mr. Banks is a one
armed Ex-Confederate soldier aud is
one ol. our most successful planters.
Mr. Hayes was at one time treasurer
of the county, and is also a farmer.
Both tlic parties are advanced in years
and stand high in the community. The
affair is deeply regretted by all. At
latest reports, about C P. M.. Mr.
Hayes was thought to be dying. No
arrests as yet have been made.?Sunday

insurance enterprise, its name has be
come a tower of strength, and has been
well earned by the untiring devotion of
President Harper and his associates. Its
astonishing prosperity has provoked attacks
which are best repelled by a frank and full
exhibit of its greatly increasing line of
business. Up to July 1,1S83, this shows a
;:ain of no less than 913 214,580 over that
cf the corresponping period last year.
In June alone" its mortuary receipts ex
ceeded ?250,000, of which over ?G0,DOG went
into the Reserve Fund?that triple buttress
upon which the association justly prides
itself. This reserve now amounts to $423,
000, and is employed for three purposes
only?to pay death claims, if any should
occitr in excess of the American Fpperience
Mortality Tables; to make food any poss
ible deficiency in the Death Fund Account,
and to be apportioned among those who
have been members of the Association fif
teen years, etc. As the first and second
contingencies named are not likely to arise,
the third object is the one upon which the
fund is practically expended. It is full of
other good points, among which may he
mentioned the economical salary list?less
than ?50,000 for carrying on the whole work
of the vast institution?and payments to
widows and orphans at the rate of over
?2,000 cash cash day.?From the old and
conservative New "i ork Daily Journal of
Commerce, July 10,1883.
With the Annual Report of the above
Company is attached a large number of
Death claims paid from February 1882 to
February 1st 1880, representing all parts of
the Union, amountlug to?1,685,200.00 from,
