WHAT THE FARMERS GET.
NOTHING BUT cheaper land and
Prle or Butter. Cbaaaa and
MHk Has i ,,.. i n, Lookout for
h Partner I ii., th. PrMBt Tariff.
T lt and Tlnnod riot.
Protection is extolled by the high triH
prty for it benefit to the farmer. If
the farmer and bis assistants obtain no
it from protection, then the whole
3ry fails to the ground, because the
farming interest is by far the largest In
Among i he most important growing
industries of the country is dairy farm
ing. With a continually increasing de
mand for its products, it would be natu
ral to suppose, if not an increase in
prices, at least not a decline. Yet fig
ures show the contrary.
Between 1880 and 1888 the average
nii5e of New Yorlc state butter was
80 cents a pound. Sinoe 1884 the price
has never exceeded 80 cents, ar.d is at
present about tS cents. The average
price of New York state factory cheese
for some years previous to 1682 was 18
o'riN it iiii. In 1S9U the price wn
from 8 to ti cents, with no prospects of
Tli in mean a round reduction of 85
prr cent, in the price of dairy produce.
Judging by the example of wheat and
other export farming products, this re
duction lias come to stay.
A decline in the price of milk preceded
the fall in the average price of butter
and cheese. In 1873 the average price
paid for milk at the Wassaic condensed
milk factory in the state of New York
was throe and seven-tenths cents per
quart. In 1880 the price per quart of
milk at the same factory had fallen to
two and nine-tenths cunts. Since 1880
the average price has not risen above this
figure, although in 1885 it was as low as
two and eight-tenths cents per quart.
As the price for dairy products has
declined, the value of the land from
which they are produced has lessened.
The United States agricultural report
for 1886. made up by Mr. Dodge, a con
picuoiiH high protection man, declared
that farm lands in the state of New ork
had deprc. i;it'd one-third in value dur
ing the preceding ten years, and, more
over, that 80 per cent, of the farms in
the same state were mortgaged to two
thirds their estimated valuation. Mr.
Wood, who is one of the state assessors
for the present rear, bears testimony,
through the column!) of the New York
Tribune, that the depreciation in the
value of the farms of New York state is
still going on. "Farming property,"
says Mr. W.kkI, "is growing less and
mm valuable. I cannot see any way for
it to improve, and in a few years you
will we more tenement farmers than
anything else. I don't see how those in
surn ianion that have advanced
money will ever get out whole."
In V. inont the decline in the farming
industry has advanced a step further.
The Now Vurk Tribune had an article on
this sub ject August 11, 1889, in which
was said, among other things: "Good
lands are offered for sale as low ae $3 an
acre, and it is said that it will be necessary
to make 15 an acre the maximum price
for settlers if the new Vermont boomers
expect to compete with western lands.
It may serve as a vivid notion of the ex
tent to which tiie depopulating process
has gone on to say that no difficulty was
encountered in finding enough abandoned
farms in one locality to furnish contigu
ous farms for the first proposed colony
of fifty families. In fact, four such lo
calities were found."
It seems then admitted that a steady
deterioration of farm values is going on
in the eastern states. Cheap transporta
tion has undoubtedly much to do with
this rerult. It matters little that Ver
mont is nine times nearer the port of
New York than Iowa. The difference in
freight charges is so small as not to
count. The western lands have two ad
vantages which last them for the first
few years after settlement. One is the
relative cheapness of land, and the other
is the virgin richness of a soil unex
hausted by overcropping.
But in both these respects time is tend
ing to equalize the values of farms in the
eastern and western states. There is no
reason to believe that western farmers
will be more provident in their treat
ment of virgin noil than they have been
hitherto. Farming land in the state of
Illinois is no cheaper than equally good
farms in Vermont.
Many years ago the state of New York
ranked first in the quantity of wheat
grown and exported. With the fall of
this cereal below 1 a bushel came the
end of the wheat growing on a large
scale. It WM no longer profitable to grow
wheat m New York. Then the farmers
turned their energies- to dairy farming,
and thiH industry grew and thrived until
the diciine of prices to their present
level. Meanwhile, western states were
finding out that the competition of states
still further west was rendering the
wheat crop an unprofitable one for them,
and ho took, In,. New York, to dairy
How fur this step has been successful
in Illinois may Ihj inferred from the re
port of the bureau of labor statistics of
Illinois made in 117 on the subject of
In this report it n Hlmwii that while
the aggregate of all mortgages outside of
Cook count increased in amount only
8.7 per cent. Ix-tw e;ti the years 1870 and
1880, since 1880 the uicrease in amount
hoH been M per cent. Between 1880 and
1887 the number of mortgages increased
from 80,759 to 90,889, while the aggre
gate amount of tktcsc mortages increased
from $103,025,237 to $123,788,098. Tak
ing twenty-two distinctively dairy coun
ties, in the seven years beginning with
1880, fourteen of tln se show an increase
in the iercentage of acres mortgaged,
while sixteen show an iucreuse in the
average incumbrance per acre.
This doe not look much like prosper
ity, and it does not seem as if the farmer
in Illinois w as much better off than the
farmer in New York Both are apuar-t-ntly
iu a pretty tight tlx. feitner ot
them can get an higher prices for his
goods than w hat Umi iiinIiIhiu of other
nation, ut Liverpool fixes them at. If
them was not enough butter and cheese
to go around iu tins country, then the
iluiry funnel llnghl obtain the benefit of
the tariff which would keep the dairy
products of outside nations from com
fieting with the home grown article, But
with a surplus for export the case m dif
ferent. CongresH cannot help the farmer
to get higher prices for his butter outside
the boundaries of the United States. If
the farmer could sell his butter uud
cheese for higher prices at home than lie
can get for them abroud, no butter or
cheese would ! exported. But as it is
he has t compete fuirly and squarely
with foreign nations.
But if the farmer cannot get any
higher prices for his butter and cheese,
lie would make more profit off their sale
if he had his salt duty free. Other na
tions against whom he has to compete in
the world's markets have free salt and
free tinul ware Tho amount of duty
annually paiu by on VnnedplaU
for dairy utensils is not less than $2i300,
000. The duty on salt used for dairy
purpose is about $1,000,000. So that
every farmer who sells a pound of butter
or cheese for export has to carry his pro
portional share of this $3,500,000. Some
day the farmers will wake up and realize
how unjust this tax is to them.
