TARIFF S BUSY DAY
Debated in the Senate and at
PITH OF THE TALK IK THE SENATE.
Carlisle Iteplle to Aldrich and Proctor
SuCK!" i New View of Strikes Sher
man Thinks Free Trade Good for Kng
land A Three Cornered Discussion at
Monona Lake Assembly St. John for
Prohibition, Warner for the Demo
cratic Tariff Idea and McKinley tor
Washington, July 80. Carlisle made
his reply to Aldrich yesterday. His speech
was neither as long nor as exhaustive as
that of Aldrich, but was devoted to at
tacks on certain portions of the former's
speech, the Kentuckian putting in bis
work where it "would do the most good."
Carlisle first attacked the statement that
the cost of living had been decreased since
the passage of the McKinley bill, but di
gressed to say: "I desire to say further
that notwithstanding the statement of the
senator from Rhode Isl;;nd (Aldrich) that
the cost of living in England had in
creased during that period, the committee
made no investigation on that subject.
It caused the prices of a number of arti
cles to be taken, but made no inquiry as
to the proportion in which they had en
tered into consumption.''
Jnst Heard of This In vest igation.
Carlisle further said that he had learned
for the first time from the presentation of
the report that an inve titration had been
made into the cost of living in this coun
try so as to show a decline of prices in the
thre cities of Fall Kiver, Chicago and
Dubuque (the home of Senator Allison).
c knowledge of any ssuch investigation
bad come to him as a member of the com
mittee, lie proposed to show that the
prices, both retail and wholesale, bad been
greatly increased by the McKinley bill
and that the cost of living it: the United
States, giving to each cue of the articles
its proper importance, had been increased
during the jieriod covered by the investi
gation and during ttie period of agitation
which had preceded the. adoption of the
McKinley bill more than iS5.tKHj,000.
Conliln't Get This Money Hack.
This money was gone out of their pock
ets forever. It did not follcw that the de
cline which had since taken place might j
iiui uceii t'tjutiiiy urougui aiKiut u
the McKinley bill had not passed. An in
dependent examination hail shown that
in fourteen months preceding the exami
nation made by the Aldrich committee
prices had decined 14 per cent., although
Aldrich in an investigation of twenty
seven months had only shown a decrease
of sixty -four hundredths of 1 per cent.
He proposed to show further that the
rates of wages of fifteen unprotected in
dustries had increased since the passage of
the McKinley bill, and that the rate of
wages of the highest protected industries
fell after the passage of the McKiuley bill.
As to the Statin of Wanes.
The fifteen unprotected industries were:
Bakers' blacksmiths, bricklayers, cabinet
makers, capeuters, laborers, machinists,
masons, irounioltlers, plumbers, painters,
stone-cutters, tailors and tin-smiths. The
fifteen highly protected industries in
which wages had beeu reduced were: Bar
iron, boots and slios, cotton goods, cotton
mid woolens goods, steel flint glass, green
glass, lumber, machinery, pig iron, steel
ingots, steel blooms, steel rails, wii dow
glass, vvoolci. goods. There has been a
decrease of 8. ! It in t lie wages of these pro
tected industries and an increase of 7.03 in
The Tax on Woolen Goods.
With a food deal of labor Carlisle said
he had separated from the tables of Aid- !
rich articles of woolen goods, including
yarns, for which we had piiid abroad $19,
583,000. The ad valorem rate of duty on
these, including carpets, blankets and
other things upon which the rate was
lower than others, was 92. m per cent.,
amounting to flS.lsvJ.OOO, so that it cost to
lay down in Xew York (without including
anything for insurance, commission,
freight, interest aud other charges), 37,
705,000. what had cost abroad f 19,583.000.
He did not lielieve, after looking at tt, ;se
figures, that senators would longer con
teud that the foreign producer paid the
tax upon the imported article.
ALLISON NOT YET RECOVERED.
He Continues to lielieve in What Car
lisle Ironically Calls a Ttelusion.
For himself he would go back to the old
delusiou. once rntertained by his friend
from Iowa (Allison), with regard to wool,
that the consumer pays at least a part
Allison I have not entirely recovered
from it yet.
Carlisle The senator says he has not
entirely recovered from that delusion yet.
Wei:, then, I am sorry for him in his pres
Carlisle next referred to the "bonanza"
of 2 shillings n box, amounting to $4,629,
000, which the McKinley bill had conferred
upon the Welsh tin plate manufacturers
In the brief period preceding the imposi
tion of the duty provided by that law.
Gives u Practical illustration.
In his closing remarks Carlisle exhibited
two samples -..f woolen goods, exactly
alike, except as to color, manufactured in
Canada. Canada, he said, was a protect
ed couutry, but admitted wool free of
duty. These specimens sold in Canada
for 22' cents n pound, but could not be
made in the United States for less thau
40 cents. This showed what our manu
facturers could do if they were given free
wool to work with. Carlisle closed his
speech at i.:20 p. m., hnviug occupied little
more than an hour.
Proctor Suggests a New Idea.
Proctor of Vermont, after producing the
evidence of J. II. Rogers, president of the
Tin Plate association of South Wales, in
proof of the advantage of the American
system to the American laborer, said he
was not inclined to join in the disclaimer
of his friends on the Republican side that
the Republican policy had no responsibil
ity for labor troubles, lie regarded strike
as an evidence of prosperity. People did
not strike for the privilege of joining the
great army of the unemployed.
Sherman Not in Favor of Cheapness.
Sherman made a long and earnest reply
to what he termed the fair argument of
the senator from Kentucky, denying that
cheapness of things was in itself n benefit
to t he people of the United States, espec
ially when it was our own products in
which the fall of prices occurred. He said
Kngland could afford to lie a free trade
country; it had ceased to be au agricul
tural country aud was almost exclusively
a manufacturing country, with vast de
pendencies to draw upon for its supplies.
If he were an Englishman he would be a'
free trader. Every other country of Eu-
rope had adopted a modification of our
system of protection.
SOME MORE TARIFF DISCUSSION,
McKinley and Warner in Joint Debate
St. John for Prohibition.
Mapisox, Wis., July 30. There
were 10,000 people in the tabernacle at the
Monona Lake assembly grounds yester
day to listen to the joint debate on the
eariff between Watterson and McKinley.
Watterson was ill and unable to keep bis
engagement and his place was taken by
W. C. Warner, of the Xew York City
Tariff Reform club. Ex-Governor St. John
spoke in the morning to about f-,000. mak
ing a plea for cold water. He said that
whatever was good or bad in legislation
so far was due to the two old parties, and
then gave figures to show that the supply
of litjuor per capita was six times greater
now than in 1S63.
Drawing His Conclusions.
In conclusion he said: "Now the Demo
crats and Republicans tell us that Prohi
bition is a side issue; that the tariff ques
tion is the main issue. Tel! me. Demo
crats or Republicans, if liquor causes so
much sorrow, so much sadness, so much
misery, so many deatiis, what is the main
issue when the expenditures for the
quarter are six times greatei than all
taken in for the tariff I want you to
nnderstand that I'm no tariff advocate.
It's wrong in principle because it levies its
burdens on what we consume rather than
Dn what we possess It levies its burdens
on the necessities of life."
Warner Opens for Tariff Reform.
At 2 p. m. W C. Warner begun a tariff
reform speech. He objected to tariff taxes
because they could not bv raised in propor
tion to property, and because through
that way of raising money the people
could be robbed without knowing it. He
then said that the Democrats proposed to
tax those articles used by the wealthy and
lighten the burden on those used by the
poor. He then drew a picture of a store.
Supposing that the tariff tax for each
article was placed above the article on
large placards. On one side were the luxu
ries of life on the otiier the articles used
by the poor. How what were the Demo
crats goiug to do ? They projxsed to take
the signs bearing small figures above the
luxuries and put them above the articles
on the opposite side of the store.
Wealth Comf from the Karth.
All the wealth of the couutry comes
from mother earth originally, and it is
labor that brings it to the surface. Pro
tection put this wealth into the jiockets of
10 per cent, of the people of the land. Pro
tection means the taking of money from
one class of j eople and placing it in the
pockets of another class, through the sanc
tion of the law. It does this by two meth
ods that of protective tariff and that of
bounties. Warner then treated of both of
these questions, and illustrated what he
called their injustices. He claimed that
free trade was a misnomer; that it was no
more free trade than a cook book is a
M'KINLEY ON PROTECTION.
He Asks What Tariff Iteform Is and
(i-cs His Own Definition.
McKinley was introduced by ex-Representative
Ln Follette. He was frequently
interrupted by questions, but seemed to
be primed with replies. He asked what
tariff reform was. What definition had
the Democratic majority in congress
given of it ? He said that the said major
ity of 150 Jhad passed a bill to untax wool
for the sole benefit of the New England
manufacturer and the injury of all
farmers, while leaving the duty on all the
woolen articles that man is called upon to
wear. It had passed a bill to lift the
tariff oa cotton ties for the benefit of the
south, while the almost identical iron
bands used in many other callings still
have upon them the old duty.
l'trect Tax or Tariff Tax.
Continuing, he said that we must raise
f 1,000,000 every twenty-four hours to de
fray the expeuses of the government. It
must either be raised by a direct tax or by
duties on imports. There could be no
evasion. The speaker then dwelt on the
disadvantage of the direct tax system and
quoted Jefferson and Madison as earnest
opponents of it in a time of peace. In
closing, he said that the United States
has had thirty years of protection aud the
country has improved its financial posi
tion so that it is unrivalled among na
tions. Thirty years ago p5 jer cent of the
hardware of the country was of EnglLli
make, but bow 95 per cent is American.
The Democratic revenue tariff is always
paid br the consumer and the foreigner
fixes the pi ice to the American consumer
and charges to it their tax.
Trying to Save King's Neck.
Xashville, Tenn., July 29. II. Clay
King, the Memphis murderer, and his at
torneys pleaded for the petition of habeas
corpus before Judge Jackson in the United
States court here Thursday. Sheriff Me
Leudo, of Shelby county, appeared by At
torney General Pickle for the state. The
argument was based on the fact that the
jury went into Arkansas. Judge Jackson
denied the writ, saying that the jury's trip
to Arkansas did not permanently render
it incompetent, and that he could not
review the state court's proceedings which
had passed on the jury's competency.
Will Interview the Whltecaps.
Chawfohdsville, Ind., July 39. John
Dodd, who was only saved from being
lynched a few days since by the opportune
appearance of an adopted son, who had
disappeared and was supposed to have
been murdered by bis father, received a
whitecap notice Wednesday night giving
him a week's time to sell out and leave
the country. Rude sketches of a banging,
with a coffin, ropes and trees scattered
about, emphasised the notice. Dodd has
armed his entire household and will pay
no attention to the warning.
THE CHAMPION DIRTY MAN.

CEAWFolil svili.e, I iid., Ju'.y 30. James
j I'elton, a tr.unn, was given a trustee
pass Wednesday to Kuckviile, but being
dirty and liliby in the extreme and literal
ly covered with vermin the passengers
raised such .1 howl that he was ejected
from the train at ihe junction and sought
a neighboring woods to rose. While ho
Mept a party cf tramps discovered
i "im a.X,
lieing thoroughly disgusted
-hat one belonging to their ancient
and honorable order should reach such a
state, they procured a bucket of white
wash and awoke their victim. He begged
manfully, but they were obdurate, aud,
after burning his clothing, they applied
several coats of whitewash, till he locked
as neat :md clean as a fresiily painted hen
coop. Charitable people leclothed dint,
and Alter he had scraped the whitewash
off, he went on his pe.iestrian way.
