Farmers and the Tariff.
It is astonishing how long the
farmers of the West and the East
have allowed themselves to he fooled
into tho hellet that the protective
t:riff was a good thing for them. Of
course, the Republican leaders, who
worked the tariff fake for so many
years, cared nothing about the farm
er except to get his vote so as they
could retain their power and manip
ulate the government in the interests
of the big trusts and combines, in
?whose- interests all the tariff lawB
.aYe" passed. The farmers of the
j^untry are benig Tobbed of ten
tim$s ?s much as they get. out of
.the .tariff by the trusts thai the ta
riff laws have made possible.
The Vesult of the election last fall
gave the Republicans to understand
that their game of robbing the many
for the. benefit of the few was at
last to ,be stopped. President Taft,
among the first of the Republicans
to see the handwriting on the wall,
immediately got busy. He oalled
Congress together and appealed to the
Democrats to come to the relief of
the country, after his own party had
refused to do anything he asked of
th?m along that line. Tho Demo
cratic h?use fresh from the people,
nassed and sent to the Republican
Senate an agreement with Canada by
which tr~ free exchange of products
' This agreement, known as the Ca
nadian Reciprocity Treaty, allows the
free exchange between this country
and Canada, of lumber, wood pulp,
print paper and all kinds of grain
and animals. The Lumber Trust and
the Paper Trust are doing all they
can to have the Senate reject this
treaty. To weaken . ft tthey have
employed a firm of prouoters to
work up sentiment against it, and to
testify before the Congressional Com
mittee that the farmers ar-> opposed
to the treaty. Actually some officers
of what Is called the "National
Grange" have declared against the
treaty and have threatened members
of Congress with the wrath of the
But the farmers refused to allow
themselves to be used for such a pur
pose, -and the action of the "National
Gramme'' has been repudiated by
seven local granges in New Hamp
shire, and the fact has been brought
out that the New York firri of pro
moters were not grangers or farmers,
but men paid by the Lumber Trust
and the Piper Trust to fight the
'treaty. This Is the way the big
trusts manages to fool the people
and tax them to death. They have
Dlenty of money, and they use it
freely to corrupt legislatures, con
gressmen, judges and other officials
to do their bidding and continue to
give them the right to pi under the
The farmers generally, but more
especially of the South, sell what
they produce at prices fired in the
open markets of the world. There the
farmer gets no protection, for pro
tection is not possible. But when,
with the proceeds of his cotton crop,
the Southern farmer seeks to buy
cottor>, bagging and ties and wire
fencing, or cotton c.othiw?., or woolen
clothing or house building mater
ial, or. house furnishing materials, he
finds he must pay the price fixed in
the Amerioan markets, from which
foreign materials are excluded by a
prohibitive tariff. In th'a way tht.
tariff holds up the farme:.' for others
to rob him.
When he complains he is told that
there is an import duty en all farm
products as well. So there la, but as
few farm products are ever imported,
these duties -are kept on the list
solely for the purpose of deceiving
the Amelcan farmer and to have be
lieve he, too, is protected. It is all
for political -Tect. So now the hired
attorneys are telling the American
farmer he is to be ruined by the Can
American farmers have nothing to
fear from Canadian farm products.
It costs as much to raise, wheat in
Canada as in the United States. It
costs more to raise corn, and cotton
cannot ,be raised In Canada at all.
?What the American farmer, North
and South, wants is wither markets.
Reciprocity with Canada widens our
rr.aikets a little; lei. us have it. Then
let us have reciprocity treaties with
all Europe; in time with all the
world. Say to your own leaders, say
to your political representatives at
Washington, that you are not op
posed to reciprocity with Canada;
that you will take it today ,?nd hope
for something better tomrrow. This
is the only way that the farmer can
keep the trusts from plundering him
and taking all he makes. All the
farmer asks is that the robber tariff
be repealed so as he will not be
robbed of what he makes by the
trusts it creates.
Doing Its Full Share.
The Southern Railway is doing I's
full share in helping to induce some
of the sturdy farmers of the west who
are moving to Canada to come this
way. The Columbia Stat:e says in The
Register and Leader, the principal
paper of Iowa, published at Des
'Molnes, it finds an "advertisement
by the Southern Railway of 'Wonder
ful Opportunities for Homeseekers in
the South.' There is a brief summary
of recent agricultural achievements,
the assurance that the development
Is amazing and an invitation to all in
terested to write for rates for 'the
twlce-a-month Homeseekers' Excur
sions,' and free copies of the 'South
ern Field' in which is presented an
array of facts about the South.'
The State says "!n t^e same Issue
of the Register and Leader are col
umns of advertisements of lands in
Colorado, Florida, Canada, Brazil,
California, Dakota, Missouri, Minne
sota, Wisconsin, U*an, Montana, and
North Dakota. Evidently the people
of Iowa are buying land freely In oth
er states or such appeals would not
be made to them. The Southern
Railway does the best It can in the
circumstances, but it cannot crystal
lize attention upon one spot, nor es
cape the idea in wouldbe settler's
mind htattechehf ietaol shrdlucfniv
mind that the chief interest of the
road Is In the price of the excursion
"If a legislative committee was ad
vertising South Carolina's opportu
nites all over the middle West and
could say that there were 1,000 or
10,000 pieces of land listed with the
Department of Agriculture by the
owners, at nonspeculative prices, also
water-power and mill sites, and in
formation about a hundered manu
f-ctoring tfpportunties, and that a
homeseekers excursion would leave
Des Moines for Columbia on a certain,
day, allowing a week for inspection
of properties in this State?if that
were done, and attention fixed on
South Carolina, then would home
seekers come here."
That is the sort of advertising to
pay South Carolina and that is the
sort of advertising the Legislature
had the opportunity to undertake,
with the railroads paying half, or
more, of the cost, says the State.
That Is true, and we doubt if South
Carolina will ever have an opportuni
ty again so favorable to induce a most
desirable lot of settlers to come her
way. These farmers who are going
to Canada and other places from the
West are the very kind of people we
want to come here and buy farms.
They have money and are thrifty and
enterprising, and will make the best
kind of citizens.
