where there Is Ho tariff on woolens.
tho woman would receive tho same
amount and quality of dress goods for
$1.87 that she pays $10 for In this
This Is because of tho Payno-AIdrlch
ad valorem tarlrr rate of 105 per cent.
When tho Democrats came into power
In tho House ofljtepresontatlvos they
framed a bill which would reduce the
tax on woolens nearly 40 per cent. Tho
Senate passed n hlmllar hill. Presi
dent Tafl vetoed tho hill, which pre
vented cheaper and better woolens to
American consumers. The Democrat
ic majority of the House now presents
the bill ngaln. '
President Tnft will havo less excuse
to vote the bill than before. Ho de
clared on tho first occasion that n cer
tain tariff board had not Vnade Its re
port, and that to permit a reduction of
the duties might make It Impossible
for tho woolen manufacturers to "pro

Tho tariff hoard report justifies a
downward revl&lon of tho woolen sche
dule. Thon since tho President vetoed
tho wool bill thqro lias been a strike
of tho toxlllo workers nt Lawrence,
Mass., which has revealed beyond ar
gument nnd beyond contradiction that
tho woolen trust mugnates havo been
fooling and cheating tho public all the
time. Tho strlko of the $(!, ?7 and $8
a week mon, women and children In
tho woolen mills brought to light the
foot that while tho mill owners havo
been declaring they woro "protecting"
their workeiB with fair wages and de
cent working conditions, thoy havo
been paying thorn starvation wages
and treating thorn almoBt like animals.
Tho last log has been knocked from
under tho wool tax argumont, and
President Taft has no excuse left to
oxplaln a voto of the Democratic down
ward revision wool bill. Tho Presi
dent votoed tho first wool hill not for
the wolfnro of cither consumers or
woolon mill workers, but nt tho be
hest of the millionaire woolen trust
owners who contributed to his cam
palgn fund. If ho vetoes the newly
introduced wool bill It will bo for the
samo reason, and tho people will so
