w? should have universal application. If
It Is the most equitable and effective

Jehn C. Everett, County Assessor,
is new calling en the long-suffering

Vereincmen who voted for Cleve
land sny that they may have lower
wages under n reduced Tariff, but that
cheaper goods will offset the reduction
and leave them better off. Their blind
fancy seems te be that a rednctien of
duty, say 20 per cent., en any article
will make it 20 per cent, cheaper. This
has net been true in the past nnd will
net be in the future. Theymust see
that mere goods imported means less
made et home and less employ of their
labor and skill. Suppose wages re
duced 10 per cent., goods 15 per cent, en
the average, and that labor loses a
month's employ yearly mere than new,
and the case will sum up as follews:
