would bring 10 good effect.
Mr. Moses assertcd the millog- in
dustry was making no prolt: uild
that its hosition in the buiness
world would be more perilous wM ith
out the protective duty.
"If You call give us rates whichF
will keep us running," he si, "we
call and will furnish the people of
the United States flour at the cheap
est prire of any people on earth. If
YOU force us to I'Ln Only part tIf the
time, your flour price will he hiiigher
and the consumer will pay am! the
producers' market will be disturbed
and lowered and he will lose. I won't
predict what will happen ho the
mills themselves if we have tC lose
our plants irt of the time."
On the question of duties oit lish,
a difference of opinion was voicei
by the home pro~ducevrs and the im
lporters, although some New Eiigland
fishing interests 'avoretd at low import
tax. The Alaskan industry protested
against. any clanges frt mlth' house
rates, the claim beingic made by Dan
Sutherland, AI:hskan delegate inl the
house, that the hill taxed every t.hing
the fishermen used in theil' hI'iness
but gave them only m loderat' pro
teetionl mi results of their labor. I Iis
