VITAL WASHINGTON NEWS
TAVENNER, "WRITER AND
PACTS AS THEY
Washington, Oct 2 Why do protec
tiraiats sever point to Italy as an Il
lustration of how, excessive tariff rates
"protect" the common people?
Italy Is one of the most highly pre
lected countries of Europe. It Is fa
woua as a country "Flowing with milk
Yet thoy never talk about Italy, do
the upward revisionists.
While in Italy three years ago, the
writer learned at first hand somo of
the reasons why our protectionists
nevor say "Look at Italy."
Italy puts heavy duties on both agri
cultural and manufactured IraportB.
She pays her people exceedingly low
wage. She charges them very high
prices for the necessities of life. They
emigrate In large numbers.
To understand the situation clearly
'we must go back to 18C7. About that
tlae a violent revolution In the system
of Italian customs was brought about.
A powerful political group of textile
Manufacturers Joined forces for their
owa ends with a powerful political
grvtip of largo landowners. Tariffs
were heavily Increased, nut not on
everything. That powerful band of tex
tile manufacturers took good care that
leaser manufacturers, who mado arti
cle needed In tho textllo factorls,
were not enabled to put up their prices.
Hand In hand with tho powerful
manufacturers tho big landowners
taae out "For a bIIco of tho tariff pic."
In order that they should ho sufficient
ly compensated for being in politics,
tho landowners bad a heavy tax placed
-on wheat In Italy it Is only tho big
landowners who grow wheat. Three
out of overy four landowners in Italy
rs possessors of small properties, cul
tivating fruit for wlno. They havo to
"hay considerable part of the wheat
they L So it happened that where
one Urge wheat farmer got blggor
proata, three- small fruit farmers got
hit That is tho way protection In
variably works out. What Is one man's
jwtectlon In another man's poison.
Hark, however, this further reuult
of tho Italian tax on wheat: Millions
of Italians never eat wheat broad, ex
cept In cases of Illness or on special
festivals. They make a broad malzo.
In this and In other respects tho stand
ard of living of tho Italian puoplo Is
Very low, becauso pricos are too high.
An enormous Usual and protective
tax was also put upon sugar. Tho pi lc-
rose so high that Italian farmorH
watched their "orangoH, lemons, peach
es, and other products of a warm and
sonorous, sun rot on their trees In or
der that tho 33 manufacturers of tho
tjngnr syndicate might levy upon con
BUSMrs a yearly tribute."
Var and away tho chief of tho Ital
las industries ure silk reeling and
Bilk throwing. Theso Industries havo
heem seriously hampered by protection.
And Italy is thu homo of tho silkworm.
ttao of tho chief troubles of Italy Is
thai the general rise in prices has so
.greatly lessened tho purchasing now
r of tho wages of tho people that the
groat mass of thu smull dealers and thu
worklngmen and women suffer bitter
ly. it is calculated that while ten Ital
Jsaalosu by protection, only ouo stands
any chance of gaining. Ho does not
always gain, for Urn country does not
progress. The Interests of Italy uru
fc&nrinced to the one In ten.
In other woiiIh, excessive tariffs In
creased thu cost of living to the Italian

Professional man's family. $140 a year
Senator Clapp Testifies!
Senator Moses E. Clapp, of Minne
"You will hear It said consantly, with
referenco to something on which tho
prlco has been advanced, 'Oh, that isn't
In tho tariff at all. That Increase- has
nothing to do with tho tariff.' Dut the
fact Is that. tho tariff reaches all along
tho line. You can't ralso tho cost of

Query For Protectionists?

In tho United States, how does it como
that Urltlsh prices, under froo trade,
Increased but 7.7 per cent in ton years,
