THE CITIZEN, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER iG, 1912.
By M. QUAD
Copyright, 1611, by Associated Lit
Deacon Carter of tlic village of
Romeo was a good man nnd n good
neighbor. lie never refused to lend
hla lioo or his wheelbarrow, nnd his
wife just doted on lending her flntlroas
or washboard. The deacon would have
no more hurt n person's frellngs than
he would havo jumped off the bridge
Into Thornapple creek, ami that he was
ever to be threatened with a lawsuit
was the last tiling to be thought of.
One day tho deacon got a lucssago to
the effect that his widowed daughter
over at Glen Dale was dying, and ho
borrowed a horse nnd buggy and drove
over The daughter had no children
to mourn hor. Tho father got there
in time to receive her last instructions
and to closo her eyes.
The widow had neither dog nor cat.
but In place of cither or both had a
goat It had been sent to her when
young from a distance, nnd they had
learned to love each other. The goat
had made no trouble nt nil, and tho
daughter charged her father to take
Billy home with him and watch and
guard him and treat him with loving
The goat was brought homo nnd
made to understand that it's future
lines were to be cast in pleasant plnccs.

shed tears over the mistress nnd tho

and became playful.

1H1 TARIFF AND
THE PAY ENVELOPE
Surest Way to Determine Proiperlty
Is By the Wane-Earner's ReturnB.
"I want to sco tho benefits of tho
tariff put Into tho pay envelops," Mr.
IlooEOvelt is quoted as saying on Juno
Tho pay envelope moro than any
thing else determines the prosperity
of tho country. The buying power of
tho nation Is proportioned by the dol
lars nnd the pennies that go out iu
tho pay envolopo.
Diminish thu power of tho wngo
carner to buy by docrcaxlng tho
amount of money In tho pay onvolopo
and you Btrlke a blow at every mor
cantllo enterprise and ovory Industry
In the nation. Prosperity Is measured
by tho pay envelope.
The Democratic platform declares
that tho American WnRo-earner stall
be denied that protection which bos
kept his pay onvolopo from bolng re
duced to the slzo of that paid tho
wage-earner of BnGlnnd, Gormony nnd
the coolio of Japan nnd China. Mr.
Wilson has ropentodly doclarcd that
he wniits tho products of American
manufacturers put on the competitive
bants with foreign, choap-mado goods
thus, that he, too, favors tho Euro
pean pay envolopo with Its $5 and J6
This Is the question which tho
American wage-earner must consider
in the approaching campaign. Does
he intend to support tho party and tho
men who havo made it a law that the
difference between tho American pay
envelope nnd tho European pay en
velop must bo considered boforo all
things In drawing up tariff measures,
or does ho favor tho party and tho can
didates who want to reduce tho pay
envelope to tho Europenn standard?
Democratic froo trade means less
employment, a smaller envelope nnd
economic disaster. Does any self-respecting
American wage-earner desire
to voto for theo conditions? i
Tho lino between the Republican
and Democratic parties, and ono that
directly concerns every man, woman
and child is the tariff. Tho Republican
party stands for protection of Amerl
enn worklngmen nnd American pro
ducers against the products of cheap
foreign labor. Tho Democratic party
stands for free trade Tho Baltimore
platform reitorntes the party's posi
tion on that question, and the conven
tion nominated an avowed free trader
for president There Is no middle
ground. The ono stands for prosperity,
tho other for poverty. The ono stands
for high wagos and plenty of work,
tho other for low wages and little
work. Tho one stands for the home
market for homo producers, th other
for the home market for foreign pro
ducers. The one stands for tho full
dinner pail, tho other for tho free
to $3.30 a box. "Who paid that duty?
In 1S71 steel rails sold for $102 a
ton, and a duty of $28 a ton was laid.
In 1804 tin price dropped to $29.92.
Who paid that duty? In 1883 the duty
was rcducod to $17 a ton, nnd In 1898
tho prlco fell to $17.62. Who, also,
paid that duty?
An Importer whom I know paid $1
for n German linen nrticlc when tho
duty under the Wilson tariff wns 35
per cent Dingley put up the duty to
50 per cent and tho German exporter,
rnthor thnn lose his trade, lowered his
prlco to 90 cents. Who, I ask, paid
the increased duty?
I assert it to be the rule, with ex
ceptions, of course, that the prices of
European articles are lowerod so that
the American markot may ho reached.
The result Is that, In many cases, tho
Amerlcnn not only pays little or no
moro hero than he would havo to pay
In Europe, but the European actually
relieves him from a part of his taxa
tion. The tariff, then, actually saves
money to the masses of tho Amerlcnn
I may extend this matter a llttlo
further. The duties upon steel rails
have Indeod been high. But, under
those duties, we have built one-half
the railway mileage of tho world; and
whereas the average freight rnte per
ton In Great Britain Js about threo
cents a mile. In tho United States it
Is conducted over those very rails
four-flfthB of a cent a mile, or the low
est rate In existence.
In what manner, then, has a high
duty upon rails hurt tho American
CHARLES HEBER CLARK.
Our Double Role of Producer and
Let me protest against tho oft-repeated
attempt to divide tho people
into separated classes of producers
and consumers. There can bo no such
division. Every man not a mere tramp
Is both a producer and a consumer.
The brakeman on a train, the man
who drives a cart, the cleric in tho
hank, are producers. Even tho Idle
rich man Is a producer, for his money
works, and must work, for him. Should
some tremendous cataclysm suddenly
destroy overy manufacturing Industry
In the great state of Pennsylvania It
would hurt In his pocket every hon
est man in tho United BtaUs. Ab the
apostle said, long ago, "Wo are mem
bers ono of another." All of h am
more or less dopendent upon each of
The vital need of our government la
assured revenue. Tho government Is
not a producer. It is a protector and
chorlsher of tho interests of tho peo
ple. The revonuo must come from tho
earnings of the people. It is an ex
cise something cut off from the earn
ings of those who do produce wealth.
This taxation may bo done In sev
eral ways. Great Britain, with less
than half our number of people, col
lects as much revenue as wo do.
Her method is to tax tho people
directly, reaching far down into every
pocket and, meantime, letting in free,
through her custom houses, tho pro
ducts of the Industry of other nations
Our method, which takes from tho
people CO cents where Enclnnd tnks
a dollar, Is to make tho levy largely
by requiring tho foreign producer to
pay for a license to enter our market
for the purpose of comDctinir with thn
The result is twofold. First, tho tar
is taken in nart lndlrectlv from thn
citizen and often witliout his con
sciousness; second, tho forolgner ia
compelled to pay a port of the tax for
tho privilege of admission here.
It is a not uncommon delusion that
tho customs duty is always added to
the American Drico. Tho truth 1 that
In many eases tho American prico,
with duty added, is no higher than tho
Hero aro a few nronfa of thin fnot.
Congress removed the duty from
hides. At once the exporters in Ar
gentina advanced the price of hides
to tho extent of tho withdrawn duty.
A few years ago, In response to a pop
ular cry for "a freo breakfast table,"
tho duty was taken off of coffee. ThP
government of Brazil Instantly added
It as an export duty. In both cases
our government surrendered reveauo
which was pocketed promptly by for
eigners, and tho American consumer
una no benefit of any kind.
The McKlnley tariff first lmnoscit a
duty of 314 onts a pound on tlnplate,
wnicn wns man seninr for E.Ii a

Folly of Tariff Doctrines.
The folly of the tariff doctrines for
many years enunciated by Woodrow
Wilson must be apparent to overy
wage-earner In this country. Tho de
claration of his party is as follows:
"We declare it to bo a fundamental
principle of the Democratic party that
tho federal government under the con
stitution has no right or power to im
pose or collect tariff duties except for
the purpose of revenue."
Under that declaration If there
should conio a time when other na
tions universally adopt a protective
tariff, and it became certain that no
industry in this country could survive
without protection, our Industries
would have to perish, because we
would havo no right or power to pro
tect them from competition with tho
products of other countries.
Many Democratic leaders aro im
ploring Wilson to recant his utter
ances. The Hearst newspapers are
vociferously declaring that tho Demo
cratic platform does not mean what It
says. But Wilson, adhering with dog
ged determination to his llfo-long freo
trado theories, Is for a revenue tariff
only, and declines to be persuaded to
abandon that Idea.
What tho Democratic party, there
fore, has got to do bofore it can win
is to explain how it is going to throw
protection to the winds and at the
same time keep American wages up to
the present standard.
The tariff and the emigration ex
clusion acts aro the bulwarks of pro
tection for the world's workers. Amer
ican consuls tell us that portions of
Europe aro bolng enriched, and civil
ized, by aliens who come to this coun
try, earn a competence and return to
Europe. And Just as tho freedom of
tho American workman the Influence
f it Is liberating tho men and wo
men of tho world from political bond
ago, the prosperity of the American
workman under tariff protection is lib
erating tho workmen of the world
from the debasing wage slavery do
structlvoly dominant everywhere ex
cept In this country.
Aside from these generalizations,
Delawareans should recall local con
ditions or only a generation ago of
loss than that ago. What but the
tariff fostered Industries of tho coun
try, has made the state ono of the
most prosperous states of tho Union?
What influence Is it that has turned
farms into gardens? What but the
tariff abolishes the free trado blight
of 1892-9S, by the lighting of furnaoe
fires nnd starting the then paralyzed
lndustrlos of tho country into lifo?

who works for wages.
Under the much maligned and much
misrepresented proteotlve tariff ays

from 18C0 to 1900, the following re

In that time tho number of wage

Tho wages paid in American mills
Increased seven tlmos;
The number of doposite in savings

The amount of deposits in savings
