Following is the text of the resolution
of Gen. Palmer, offered in the U. S. sen
ate for senatorial elections by dire-t
vote of the people:
"Resolved, By the sena'e and house of
representatives of the United States in
congress assembled, two-thin' of both
bouses concurring, that the following
amendment to the constitution be pro
posed to the legislatures of tLe sev
eral States, which, when ratified by the
legislatures of three-fourths of the sev
eral states, shall become a part of tbe
constitution: "The senate of the
United Stated shall be composed of
few 'apfi&tnra frr.m pnrK ctato rhr.,r.n
pjJ tbe people thereof fer tix
vote. Electors for senators in each state
shall have tbe qualifications requisite fer
electors of the most numerous branches
of the state legislature. When vacancies
happen in the representation of any
state in the senate, by resignation or
Otherwise, the executive autboiity there
of shall issue writs of election to fill such
vacancies. At any election for srn-itor
the person receiving the highest number
of votes shall be held to be duly elec

has prepared an elaborate speech in sup

ably address tbe senate within a week .
Mill Blaine Rr-tgo v
Chicago Evening Pint.
Since the publication of Mr. B'aine's
letter to General Clarkson declinirg in
advance a nomination which most people
believed to be his for the asking, it ia not
drfflcult to give credence to almost any
rumor concerning tbe secretary's future.
The latest of these is that Mr. Blaine
will, as soon as may be, retire from tbe
cabinet and seek rest aod recreation in a
This report is put forth on the author
ity of a New York journal which has al
ways aspired to be known as an organ of
the administration, but whose ambitions
bave in great part been defeated by an
overwhelming proneness to silly sensa
tionalism . Still there are several excel-.-
lent reasons why the report ahauld prove
true. The first of these is Mr. Blaine's
physical condition, which, if anybody
can be believed, is not that of a healthy
man. Moderation is not one of the
secretary's traits of mind, conductor
character; he has paid and is paying the
inevitable penalty of excess. But if Mr
Blaine's health will not permit him to
give full scope to his activity his ambi
tion will never suffer bim to remain a lav
figure. In the cabinet his nerves would
be torn asunder between these two con
tending forces. It is but natural that he
break away .
Tbe admirers of Mr. Blaine and these
number a large majority of his pariy
need have no fear that he will go so far
away from the scene of his activities as
to be beyond the reach of a telegraph
wire. Tbey should remember that dur
ing the convention of 18S8 Mr. Blaine
held one end of a cable, mt which tbe
other end was in the bands of his faithful

ITS POUND OF FLESH;
THE M'KINLEY' TARIFF A MEASURE I
FOR THE MONOPOLIST. -
Consrressmiin W. L. Wilson, of West Vir
ginia, and His Pronounced Views. '
Should Any One Be Taxed to Support
Congressman W. L. Wilson, of West
Virginia, in a letter to the St Louis Re
public sho xra that the McKinley- tariff
on iron and steel is not a protective but
a monopoly tariff:
The American Economist is the organ
of the Amei ican Protective Tariff league.
More perhaps than any other journal, it
may be tak ?n as the official mouthpiece .
of the protected industries, and any con- j
cessions it makes are always made with '
ample reservations to those industries.
It ia publishing just now what it calls
"Short Tariff Sermons," evidently de-;
signed for -.lie nse of the country news- ;
papers as i n elementary statement of ;
the case for protection. i
) It defines protection as "that system '
of tariff legislation which levies duties j
on imports, such as are adequate to es
tablish and naintain industries, insuring
high wages :o laborers." This definition
clearly implies that a protected indus
try is a bun" en npon the other and self
supporting industries of the' country,
which are taxed to "establish and main
tain" it. A-v it is allowed to determine
and dictate 1 he amount of taxes it will
require for i s establishment and main
tenance, it is very desirable that we
should asce:tain from unquestionable
anthority how- far a protected industry
is justified iti pushing its exactions.
We are gl;.d therefore that The Econ
omist lays di-wn the principle that "the
amount of rotection 19 determined by
the differene.; between the cost of pro
duction at h nne and abroad." and that
it makes it lain by the following illus- j
tration: "If oecanse of higb wages here
it costs :t0 to produce a ton of steel
rails, and because of low wages it costs
only $v!0 in England, the steel rails need
a iluty of f I I a ton to keep our mills
open and to protect our own workmen
from low wafres." I
This is all explicit enough, and it is
gratifying to find that the framers of
the McKinley bill accepted this same
principle unreservedly and professed to
have made it the rule by which they ad
justed the duties of that bill.
"We have recommended no duty,"
said they n reporting the bill, "above
the point of difference between the nor
mal cost of production here, including
labor, and the cost of like production in
the countries which seek our markets."
Here, then, in sermon and iu official
report we hae a statement of the full
demand of p-otoction. It calls for its
own pound of flesh. Whatever it takes
more than this pound is mere torture of
its victims. In other words, a duty that
covers the difference of the cost of pro
duction at bo ne and abroad is protec
tion. Whatever duty is less than this,
tbey say, is not protection. And what
ever is more 1 nan this, we may justly
claim, is sheer bounty and tribute to
.Now let us see how they keep faith
with the people, when they arrange
duties for the protection of their favor
ites. Heretofore both lawmakers and
people have b?en dependent chiefly on
such statements as interested parties
chose to make tefore congressional com
mittees or elsewhere as to the cost Of
production and the comparative scale of
wages here arnl in other countries.
Fortunately for us now the depart
ment of labor is carefully and methodi
cally investigating these questions m
some of our most important industries,
particularly in the iron and steel and
textile industries. Its sixth nun rial re
port is devoted to an examination of the
cost of producing iron and steel in this
country and abroad.
Let us first take pig iron. Taking the
average of twenty-six blast furnaces in
the northern district of the United States,
the cost of all elements of production of
rnn-of-the-mine pig was $13.94 per ton:
in twenty-four furnaces in the southern
district it was $10. 73 per ton. In a typ
ical furnace on the continent of Europe
it was $11. 03 per ton. The cost of pro
ducing pig iron in the south is thus some
what less than jpon the continent, and
probably about the same as in England.
In the north it is about $3 per ton
greater, yet the McKinley bill fixes the
duty at $G.2 per ton, which, if we add
$2 for ocean fi eight, insures a protec
tion to the American producer of $3.72
per ton on his product; whereas, if he
produces in the south he needs no pro
tection whatever, and if he produces in
the north he needs at most but $:J ier
ton, according to the rule laid down by
both The Econoi iist and Major McKin
ley and his colleagues.
Let us also take The Economist s own
illustration stet 1 rails. The report
finds that the actual cost of making
standard steel rails in . several of the
largest establishments in the United
States "is, and his been for some time,
within a few cents of $22 per ton at the
"works," and that in Great Britain it is a
"sum not varyi lg much from $1S per
ton." Accordingly, making all allow
ances,, it says t'.ie "difference between
the lowest cost of British steel rails of
sixty pounds to tiie yard and the lowest
cost of the same grade of rails in the
United States ia i a the vicinity of $3 per
Now, the McKinley bill, professing to
recommend no dr. ty above the difference
in cost of production here and in the
countries that st ek our market, puts a
duty of $13.44 per ton on steel rails, in
raring, if we add ocean freight, a pro-,
taction to American makers of $15.44
per ton on a product that costs but $4 or
$5 per ton more to make here than in
It is well known that a combination
fritdm nmnnrr the 1am thr.n a rlrrcpn ril
mills in the count -y by which they keep
np and dictate prices to purchasers.
That combination is created and shield
ed by this protection, which is more
than three times greater than the
amount declared necesaary by The
Eccaxrmist, and more than three times
greater than the amount professedly
given by the McKinlev bill.
The $10 per ton in excess of 'the ade
quate protective duty as defined by the
protectionists is the safe and sure mar
gin within which they may and do
establish the prices at which they will
sell their rails.
These are not exceptional cases. They
are but fair and average illustrations of
the existing tariff law, and stamp that
law not a protective but a monopoly
SMUGGLING ALONG THE BORDER.
A Profitable. Business . Between Maine
and Canada Reciprocity Wanted.
A correspondent writes from Vance
borough, Me., an account of smuggling
back and forth across the Canadian bor
der: "It has been no secret," he Fays, "in
this part of the country that free trade
for all who desire it now exists and has
existed for years along the line between
Canada and the state of Maine, this line
being for the most part'in a wilderness
and about 400 miles in length.
"The boldest operations are carried on
fn the cities of Eastport and Calais.
Across the harbor from the former, dis
tant aliout one mile, is the Canadian
island of Campobello. Each hour,
weather permitting, a ferryboat leaves
Eastport for Campobello and Lubec. At
the lauding of the first named are sev
eral liquor stores. Men take the ferry,
and buy in Campobello dutiable goods,
which they take back to Eastport or
Lubec, and no questions are ever asked.
Smuggling ha been as common in and
around Eastport the last two years as
"But the places to study the working
of free trade pure and 6imple are in the
Yankee town of Calais and the Cana
dian burg of St. Stephen, half a mile
across the St. Croix river. A bridge
connects the towns. At the American
end is a toll taker and a Yankee custom
house man; at the Canadian end a col
lection of liqtior shops, with now and
then a dry goods shop. There is no rea
son why these shops should be there
save for the patronage that comes
through the ancient covered wooden
bridge. Old horses have been driven
into New Brunswick by well known
men, and on the return valuable horse
flesh, dirty and with shabby harness,
has been brought back". Everything low
in price in Canada and high in the state
is snmggled into Calais and no questions
are ever asked."
Lnt the correspondent found that the
smuggling was not at all one way. The
American smuggler gets his booty in St
John and Halifax, where English kids,
cloths, silks, etc., are in abundance and
low in prices, but there are some Amer
ican goods that he wants to get into
Canada- by beating the Canadian tariff.
"Regularly drummers for wholesale
houses in Maine and Boston visit the
larger towns near the border and on the
Canadian side selling their wares. Even
barrels of alcohol are taken across the
St. Croix to druggists and liquor dealers,
and other merchandise whereon there is
a Canadian dntv goes over free."
All this shows how hard it is to keep
people from trading when trading is
good for both sides. And trading is so
uatural that everybody near the border
will smuggle without compunction of
conscience. The tariff wall is not looked
upon as a thing founded upon justice
and its morally binding upon anybody.
It is an unnatural and abnormal thing.
If people in Canada and in Maine are
so anxious to trade, why not let them
trade? hy not give them reciprocitv
Of the broadest kind? The Boston Her
ald says of free trade with Canada.
"That is reciprocity that means some
thingreciprocity that would be felt in
the bnsiness interests of Boston and of
all New England."
KEEPING THE TARIFF PROFIT.
A tlierlslii'd Ii Klulcy Formula Shuan
tn Be False.
No one point in the whole protection
ist creed is more often or more stoutly
insisted upon than the statement that,
after protection has given our manufac
turers the home market, they will reduce
their prices to the foreign leveL This is
what they mean when they say that the
tariff is not a tax, an assertion which
they repeat in season and out as the cor
ner stone of their faith.
But the matter can be tested by mar
ket reports, and this cherished formula
of the McKinleyites can be shown to be
false. Our manufacturers of steel rails
have complete possession of the home
market, the imports of rails last year be
ing only i:4 tons, a bagatelle which
counts for nothing in affecting prices.
Do our railmakers, th n. sell rails at
as low a' price as we can get them in
England? By no means. They are iu a
combine which keeps prices up as high
a the market will stand. ,Only recently
a trade journal jointed out how the rail
roads were holding back in making pur
chases of rails by reason of the artificial
price maintained by the rail trust.
The trust price is now from ten to
eleven dollars above the price in Eng
land, as shown by the reports published
in our protectionist papers themselves.
In other words, a protected monopoly
does not surrender its tariff profits till
compelled to do so by outside competi
tion. But in the case 6f the 6teel rail
trust, a McKinley duty of $13.44 a ton
prevents this outside competition and
the trust has everything its own way.
The "Farmers' Tariff."
McKiulcy's so called "farmers' tariff"
does not seem to be doing its work well
in California. A protectionist agricul
tural paper saya:
"More than 200,000 sacks of Lima
beans are piled up at Ventura, Cal.,
waiting for better prices. A year ago
these beans brought five and six cents a
pound: this year only two or three cents
Two years ago certain farmers went
lo Washington and had McKinley raise
the duty on beans from tea cent a
bushel to forty cents: and cow the Cali
fornia farmers can get only half as
ranch as last year for beans.
