'she showed signs of budding greatness

Iatlob Kidok. Oct. 2. 1889. Your
comments on (senator Cullom's artie'e on
protection in tbe Forum, which were pub
lished in last week's Aneus did not from
a farmer's standpoint, entirely cover tbe
ground tbat the senator laid particular
tress upon, as i understand from a
careful study of his article, his object
wa mj buuw iuai ine larmers. more than
any other workers were benefitted by
protection, and especially the farmers of
He says: "The tariff bas undoubtedly
induced many people to engage in manu
facturing and mining instead of farm i no
and bas thus reduced the farmer's compe
tition. If all these people were to go on
the land to live, we should have a larger
agricultural product in the aggregate.but
less per man; and as they would produce
their own food, tbe market for farm pro
duce would be diminished by jnst so
much. Thus we see that bv diverting the
people from the farms to the workshops
and mines, tbe protective tariff doubly
adds to tbe value of the products of tbe
The above quoted parasrraDh is a n
nice theory, but the naked facts will
knock it into smithereens. He says, "if
all these people were to go on tbe land to
live," there might be a hundred if'a luat
plausible, but upon this hvDotheaia hi.
whole argument is based. The fact of
the business is tbat protection does not,
never did, nor never will benefit tbe
farmer, and I shall not onlv "attempt to
prove it" as tbe senator eays. but shall
prove it beyond a doubt as every farmer
in tbe west knows if he knows anvthinv
Yet some may deny it because their polit
ical party is pledged to protection, but in
their hearts they know it is a delusion
and a snare. Here is some of my evi
dence. Land here in Rock Island county
bas depreciated in value $15 and $20 per
acre in the last ten years. Any one that
don't believe this, let him offer his farm
for sale and the fact will be made very
apparent Again, corn sixteen cents per
buabel. oats fourteen cents nnr hnsh-l
pork $3 50 per hundred, beef from nn. til
four cents per pound. Now any one that
is at all familiar with tbe production of
the above articles is well aware that thev
cannot be produced at those prices and
leave a shadow of profit to the Droducer
even without counting interest on his in
vestment. This is no sudden drop,
neither was it brought about by any
financial panic, but a gradual drop year
after year and a high protective tariff
has existed all these years.
Une more fact: Ninety-nine farmers
out of one hundrtd will say, "they never
aaw such hard times before.' If any
farmer who gains his whole support from
the cultivation of his farm will say that
protection has been a benefit to him
individually let him now speak. The
senator lays great stress on the consump
tion of ninety per cent of our farm nro.
ducts at home which may or mav not
be true but fails to tell us that thn
prices of the ninety per cent here at
home is based upon tbe paltry ten Der
cent as be calls it that is exported to f or
eign countries. After wading through a
long siring of statistics be remarks: 'For
we are to give up our manufacturing and
all follow farming-' His argument is
this: take off protection and as a conse
quence all American manufacturies would
stop because we would import all our
supplies, and everybody in America
would go to farming. In another place
he iterates: 'by reason of competition in
manufactured goods in this country they
are cneaper man ever lierore known.
The old stereotyped scare that, 'take off
protection and everybody would go to
farming.' has lost its force, because every
practical farmer is well aware that it
ould be a question of but a few months
until those unacquainted with the busi
ness and unable to endure the laborious
toil, would succumb. Farming is not a
business that can be conducted from an
office and a standing collar without mak
ihg the wrong aide of the account the
Farmers are not classed as laborers;
but it is a fact tbat there is no class of
men on earth tbat labor as hard and as
many hours in a year, as do tbe farmers,
and the more protection is piled up the
harder we must work.

A number of tbe workingmen of the

bid was the same, and in which thev
were interested. Had Mr. O'Connor re
ceived tbe contract, tbe workincmen
would, they claim, have had use for their
teams and would bave commenced filling
tbe square at once, and they say that in
an administration whose success politic
ally was largely due to their efforts, they
had a right to expect consideration and
tbe benefits of work auch as this which
they need, where, as tbe contractor who
has secured it simply wants to keep his
own teams buay and will be the sole
gainer when the money comes in.
