Mr. Cleveland's reply was:
Xkw Yoiik. March B4, 1800.
J, A. II1U, roi'ivspiuidinit secretary, etc.:
IlKAK Sill I have received your letter,
accompaiiie I by a copy of the declaration
of principles of the Farmers' Alliance.
I see nothing In lliis.le. l.T.nion that ran
not be lolly inilor-etl by any man who
loves bis country, who U'lieves that the
object oi our uoveruu' nt should be the
freedom, propei-ity an l happiness of all
our people, aud who is-ives that Justice
sad fairness to all are in . -ssary conditions
to Its useful ndiuinisti-,.1 .on.
It has always seen as I to me that the
fanners of the country were especially In
terested in an equitable atljii-tuieiit of our
tariff sysiein. The ioi.i.lon-iico they have
shown lo that question, and the ease with
which they have been led away from a
sols-r coiisiluralion of their nee. Is and
their rights as related to this subject, have
excited i.iy surprise.
St ru .iflc .s t hey may, our farmers must
coiitiiine to Is- pureh.'sers and consumers
of inn.,' ro-ss things , u.uifcd in coat by
tarlit ii initiations. Smeiy they have the
rittht lo insist that tlii-. cost shsll not is)
increased for the purji -se of collectiiiK un
necessary revenue, or ;., give undue ad
vantage to domestic in. inifai tiircrN. The
plea that our infant industries need the
protection which thus impoverishes ths
farmer and the consumer, is. In view of
our natural advantages and the skill and
enemy of our people, a hollow pretext.
Struu'uleas they may, our farmers can
not escape the ootidii ions which fix the
price of wheat they produce nnd sell ac
cording to the rates ivbb h prevail in for
eign markets, flooded with the competi
tion of countries enjoying freer exchange
of trade than we. The plausible pre
sentation of the blessing of a home mar
ket ahould not deceive our depressed and
Impoverished nurieultunillstt. There Is
no home market for them which does
not tuke its lust ructions from the sea
board, and the se.-ilioard trunsmlta ths
word of the foiviun markets.
Heesuse my conviction that there should
be a modification of our tariff laws arose
principally from an appreciation of the
wants of the vast army of consumers, com
prising our farmers, our artisans and our
workiimmeii, uud Is-cuuse their condition
has led me to protest against prcsi-nt m.
positions, 1 am e--iH-'-i.illy ulnd to see these
sect Ions of my fellotv-eountryineu arous
ing themselves to the importance of tariff
reform. Very truly yotirn,
