The Auditorium Last Night Crowded With
Workingrmen to Hear an Address by
Oar Next Congressman Hon. W. IT.
Veece of Macomb Also Present and
Speaks Two Hours of Tariff Talk From
an Kx and a Future Congressman.
A large and enthusiastic crowd of
democrats assembled last trieht at the
Auditorium in VIoIine to listen to ad
dresses by Trum-in Plmtz, democratic
nominee for congress and exCoigress
man W. H. Netce of Macomb. Tbe Cv.
rre Flambeau club with a band was out
and e snorted the speakers to the ball- The
meeting was called to order by A. R'
Bryant who first introduced Truman
Plantz, tbe next congressman from this
Tbe speaker expreesed his gratification
at being present to address the working
men of Moline ani 8 lid that to all ap
pearaDces it w-s rustornany for theoppos
iiioD to pmvi-" a hsn of questions for a
democratic speaker to answer at least
that's what bad bee a - done in the
speaker's case, as an evening paper
had printed a list of questions which it
challenged him to answer. This Mr.
Plantz Slid he woutl ' try to do iu an
open and frnk manner in good faith, and
in return he would ask the same paper
a few questions which he would expect it
to treat in a similar manner.
He took up eich question separately
that bad been propounded aed iu a clear
and satisfactory manner answered it be-!
icg wildly applauded as he did so. The.
first question asked was: ''Does Mr.
Plamz think that a protective tariSis wo
constitutional as the democratic platform
declares or does be favw tariff reform
like ClerelandT la answer. Mr. Plants
&id be -stood side by side with Mr. Cleve
land on that question and that if the ex
isting tariff whs not legally wroag it was
certainly morally so.
In answer to the question if fee would
be in favor of a repeal of the WcKtnley
bill, and if be was in favor of it
as the paper thought be would be
what articles be would tax to raise tbe
necessary S300.O00.000 to c.srry on the
government, tbe speaker aai that he em
poaticaily favored its repeal and instead
of taxing disotocd li per cent a&d
woolen clothing "75 per cent, he would
just turn it about and pvt the high tax
on the luxrie and low Vex. on the teces
s tries of life.
Ot her questions he answered in si mi
1 ir strtichtfoTward maimer and also pro
pnui.rl.d some for the paper to answer.
which tue laboring men of Moline will
expect it to answer without delay.
SMm-rliv the PUUc AttratiM.
The sneaker theu told how the repub-.
Heats party was at its old trick of divert-
inz tbe attention of the public from the
real issues iwolved e tbey have in years
gone by, teiiing us that if tbe democratic j te address
.Ms tbe citizen here he spoke of Gen.
Logan's bill introduced and . passed in
congress immediately after the disaster
oua Chicago fire which provided that all
m terials used in the construction of
buildings there should co ne into the
country free of duty.
The Theory of Protection.
M". Pi tot said that it was unnecessary
to discuss the matter further, as the vary
theory of protection was that someone
was going to sell cheaper than somebody
else wanted to sell, which fact it was that
actuated it. He then drew an apt illus
tration from Moline and R ck Island. i- j
the matter of a coat bring sold, ar d
showed plainly the result of a protective
tariff. Next the speaker turned his at
tention to the effect of this burdensome
system of taxation on the farmar, many
provisions of which he said were for the
purpose of foo'ing him. Ue explained
how tbe republican papers were telling
the farmers that owing to this grand
system of protection Canadian wheat
that was ready to flod the country at
any moment, was kept out. The enor
mous benefit of this to tho farmer is
shown by the fact that in 1889, the year
before the McKinley bill went into effect.
2 881 bushels of corn were imported.
'Just think how this would have flooded
the country," said Mr. Plsotc. "In the
same year 1,944 bushels of wheat were
brought here. Wnat would become of us
if that were allowed to go on? And not
only that, but statistics th'w that ac
tually 19 bushels of rye were brought here
tbe same year and U stributed throughout
Real Cause f Ulxh Prtuei for Urmia.
In a plain and straightforward manner
the speaker then showed that it was the
result of the famine in Russia that had
forced the prices of grain ap last year,
and not the McKinley bill, any more
than it was the same bill that brought
them down again but simply the law of
supply an3 demand. la closing Mr
Plants; torched on tbe relations of capi
tal and labor, and spoke of the Home
stead troubles, warning the laboring men
to beware of Toting tare same ticlret that
the Csrnegies voted.
His addrees was listened to by bis aud
itors with interest, and was a ptain, un
varnished statement of the questions that
today confront the people of this nation .
He made many good points, and was
frequently interrupted by loud cheering
