The republicans taxed French imports
to such an extent that they the French

puzzle the senator to point out in what

receives a benefit? The potatoe crop is
partial failure this year, and yet the re
publicans are desirous of Imposing a
heavy tax upon importations of that com

the farmer? Perhaps in this way: The
scarcity of potatoes will create a greater
