assert that these 6ide arms which they
never leave at home are for the demo

When Charles a.arle made the state
ment at Joslin that tLe republican party
was opposed to truss, I hastened to look
up the records. The oi.ly effort ever
made to protect the people was while the
McKinley bill was pending in the senate.
Senator Plumb introduced an amendment
to aid the people and protect them from
the protection plunderers as follows:
"If it shall appear to the satisfaction of
any circuit or district court of the United
States that the manufacture or produc
tion or distribution of simi'ar articles of
domestic production or of the articles ef
domestic manufacture and product on
with which an imported article comes
into competition, is controlled by a single
corporation, firm or individual, or by any
combination or agreement between cor
porations, firms or individuals engaged in
themanufacture, production, sale or dia-
triouuon or sucn domestic article, so as
to produce either of tin following r -
suits, namely: The establishment of m-
bitrary aa J proscribed prices for such ar
ticle of domestic manufacture or produc
tion, or the arbitrary restriction or limita
tionof the production or sale of such ar
ticle, or the suspension of competition in
the sale, distribution, manufacture or pro
duction of such domestic articles then
the importer of such competing articles
hall be entitled to receive I is goods fiee
from duty." This was to prevent oruanzd
greed from arbitrarily fixing prices to re
strict competition. Had Senator Plumb's
just amendment been added to the Mc-;

been no oatmeal trust, no buckwheat
trust, no sugar trust, no tin trust, no
wire nail trust, no lumber trust, no bind,

and rob the farmer' and laborer. Bat
