On political and economic questions
Cel. Rebert 0. Ingersoll is a keen
observer. He was recently asked
whether he thought the new Congress
and the President would redeem the
pledges made in the Chicago platform,
and replied: "The Democratic Congress
will And that it will be called upon te
raise sereral hundreds of millions of
dollars in seme way, and in order te
de this it cannot unduly interfere with
the Tariff without reducing the
rovenue or destroying manufacturers.
Consequently there will be a great deal
of talk and nothing dene. The duty en
articles is the result of a combination
covering the entire country. It Louisiana
wants the Protection of a sugar bounty
she must help Pennsylvania about her
iron, and be It gees through nearly all
the States of the Union. I am a
Protectionist. I believe in multiplying
the industries of the country, in develop
ing the brains of the people, and nothing
will de that like festering the develop
ment of thoser industries of which our
great land has but dimly conceived thus
Ten times since the war Tariff was
passed have the Republicans revised or
amended it In general bills. They have
been persistent Tariff tlnkers. Dut
always, with ene exception, the duties
have gene up, up, up! The avcrage duty
of 82 per cent. in the original war Tariff
of J8C2 had increased te 83 per cent, in
1874. Under the "referm of the Tariff by
its friends" in 1883 the average rese te 4'J.
Then, with a surplus revenue of nearly
$100,000,000 annually, came the McKinley
revision of 1800 covering every schedule,
and last year the avcrage duty en dutiable
articles Imported for consumption was
48.71. Ifeie Yerk World.
The above was sent te The American
Economist by n Republican with a
request for the truth.
The World, with its usual disregard for
fairness, only gives half the story. The
average ad valerem rate of duty en
free and dutiable goods, under the Tariff
of 1802, was 2S.2S per cent. In 1874 it
had decreased te 2(5.88 per cent, nnd in
1883 it was 29.92 per cent., while in
1S92, under the McKinley Act, it was
only 21.20 per cent.
The average duty is the average upon
free nnd dutiable goods both, ami is
se stated in the statistics of the Treasury
Department, but The World, which never
steps at a lie in order te gain a point,
gives the dutiable rate only. A Protect
ive Tariff is designed te be a Tariff equal
te the difference in wages between this
and competing countries en manu
factured goods that we can make in this
country or which are luxuries, but ad
mits free all non-competing raw materi
als that will nid our manufacturers. In
making an average of the duties upon
all our imports it would be manifestly
unfair te emit the value of the raw
sugar that we import nnd which is
free, while including the values of for
eign manufactured goods.
It will be seen by the foregoing that
the McKinley Act has reduced the aver
age ad valerem rates of duty en both
free and dutiable goods te 21.20 per eeut.
last year, as compared with 28.28 per
cent, in 1803, and 20.8S per cent, in
1874. The per capita of duty collected
in 1874 was 3 74, whereas in 1S92 it
was only $2 00, a decrease of 78 cents
per annum for every man, woman and
child in the country.

There is a geed deal of opposition
manifested even en the democratic side
te the present oenskVoration of n propo prepo

Chicago, Sept. 14. Up te an early

cover their tracks that as yet the pelice
of this city and the special detective

In the vielnlty of the scene of the rob

It is still bolleved, despitc denial by
the eillcers of the express company,

MeCreary kvid the bill introduced by
Mi. Everett, of Massachusetts, which
is understood te be an administration
