TARIFF TO BE THE ISSUE.
Issue to be Pushed to the Frontr-An
uual Statistical Report of Inter
state Commerce ommission.
Special cor. Herald and news.
Washington, Nov. 28.-Democratic
members of Congress who have come
to Washington since the election are
considering the policy that should be
pursued by their party during the
coming session of Congress, and the
general opinion seems to be that the
tariff issue should be pushed to the
front and kept there regardless of all
efforts the Republicans may make to
give prominence to other matters.
The results of the elections have
shown that. the Republicans are bad
ly divided on the tariff issue and thatI
in some parts of the country the
rank and file of that party are
strongly for revision. In fact, some
of the Republican candidates for Con
gress in New Englana could not have
been elected if they had not declared 1
for revision, while in Minnesota, Con
gressman McCleary, one of the most
extreme protectionists, was defeated I
on the tariff issue and the normal Re- i
publican majority in Iowa was great
ly reduced simply because the Re
publican revisionists were dissatisfi- 1
ed with the compromise made by Gov
ernor Cummins with the stand pat
wing of the party.
The Democrats, on the other hand, 9
however they may differ on other f
subjects, can all unite on the tariff f
question and by united action can 1
compel the Republicans to debate it e
with the inevitable result of disclos- e
ing and augmenting the discord in t
that party. The stand pat Republi- a
cans do not want a tariff debate and I
will do all in their power to prevent I
it. They will put forward other mat- it
ters and will endeavor to becloud e
the real issue between the parties. In a
this they will have the assistance of f
Prest. Roosevelt, as they have had in f
the past, and will seek to entrap the s
democrats into supporting his anti- o
Democratic policies of centralization
which, if developed to the extent out- t
lined in some of his speeches, would t
wipe out State-lines and reduce Con- ii
gress and the courts to the mere func- s
tion of registering Presidential de- 8
The President will doubtless en
deavor to secure the passage of more 0
legislation purporting on its face to 1
provide additional remdies for cor- 9
porate abuses, but, really designed I
Airthier his scheme of increasing the '
importance of his own ofiee. The
necessity for further legislation of I
this character may bo questioned i

against the Standard Oil Company a
are not being conducted under any

that inot. earnings have not increased
in anything like the same proper

Ketcalf's Department on Wittekini
Washington, Nov. 23.-An opiniot
)f sweeping importance to all part
)f the country, but particularly t<
hie South is to be rendered shortl;
)y Solicitor Earle, of the departmen
)f commerce and labor. On the judg
ment of the department, based 01
Solicitor Earle's opinion, probabl)
ivill depend the continuance o:
mmigration to southern ports fron
>oints in Europe.
Tho question to be. decided wa:
eaised by the recent landing of r
hlipload of immigrants at Charles
on, S. C. Commissioner of Immi
-ration F. P. Sargent and a corps of
nspectors were present when th
;hip arrived early this month. The
mnmigrants, were for the most part
anded without question and they
inve scattered through various parts
if the South. Some of them were
letained for various reasons-chiefly
>hysical or mental-and a few of
hem were ordered deported. They
vere treated, as a whole, precisely
s any shipload of immigrants would
e handled by the immigration of
cers at a northern port.
Since they were landed, however,
t has been developed that the immi
rants were induced to take passage
rom their homes to Southern port by
n agent of the state of South Caro.
na. Other Southern states, interest
d in securing immigration have rais
d the question whether the action of
lie agent of South Carolina was not
violation of the spirit, if not of the
tter, of the national immigration
tws. An inquiry now is being made
Ito the matter by the department of
.mmerce and labor and the facts,
s they are obtained, are being re
)rred to Solicitor Earle. After care
ll consideration of them, lie will pre
mt to Secretary Metcalf an opinion
r the legality of such immigration.
If, as now seems likely, the solicl
ir' opinion should support the no
on of the Southl Carolina authorities
I thus indcing iminigration to.that
late, it is quite probable that other
outhern states will send agents to
4urope for the purpose of soliciting
ther immigi-ation. It has been
lown that the aent of South Car
lina. did not offer the immigrants
ositions in his state, but only in a
eceral way demonstrated to them
hint they would have no difficulty
This action sVeeis to be well within
he immiigration law, as, under that
1w, states have autliority to present
> prospective immigrants the advant
,es of locating within their confines.
