October 6, 1890.
Pasto this date in your hat and
keep it fixed in your memory Oc
tober 0, 1890. It will help you to
put a matter of theory and argu
ment to a practical test. You havo
been told that the tariff is not a tax
on the American consumer ; that it
does not enhance the price of do
mestic manufactures ; that the for
eigner pays the tax on the imported
goods, and that nobody pays any
tax on consumption. You havo
also been told that the effect of in
creased tariff duties is to increase
the wages of labor, the profit of
the agriculturist, and the general
prosperity of the country. The
McKinley bill 'went into effect on
the 6th day of October. It raises
the protective duties higher than
Avas ever done or proposed to bo
done before. Therefore. Ave should
reasonably expect, if we are to be
lieve the arguments of the protec-.
tionists, that wages will promptly .
advance, that farm products will
find a readier and a better market,
that prosperity will span the coun-.
try like a rainbow. We should
never suspect that there Avould bo
an advance in the price of the nec
essaries of life, that a larger pro
portion of the poor man's wages
must go for the common needs of
life, or that a more stinted supply
of the every day comforts must
bring his living Avithin the com
pass of his means. Let us watch
and see. Open an expense account
beginning October 6, 1890. Com
pare the prices of tho things you
buy -with tho price of the same ar
ticle prior to that date. If you
find the cost has increased, exam
ine tho schedules of the now tariff
laAv and find whether any, and if so
what, changes have been made in
the rate of duty. Keep this up for
a time and then give us your can
did opinion of the noAv tariff law
which the Republican party gavo
as a blessing to the poor on tho
6th day of October, 1890, to hqlp
them meet the rigors of the ap
