CONGRESSMAN CABLE'S , VIEWS,

Demand .of the People for Immediate
Action With Reference to the Tariff
Qaestlon Some of the Likely Changes
The Beit Interest of the Comntry .
A Washington special to tbe Chicago
He mid contains the following interview
with Congressman Cable on the propoeed
spec-.al session of congress, and special
tariff legislation: ''
"The republicans have bankrupted ibe
government and the democrats should
lose no time in ranking tnat fact known
in the most effective way possible," said
Congres&man Cable tonight. "I mean
by ibis that Mr. Cleveland shoud call
congress to meet in special session soon
after March 4 next. Wbile republican
coat txiltt are still to be sei-n in the nut
skirts of Washington fl. ing trm the cap
itol, tne democrats should meet in full
pohsession nf the government for Ibe flist
time iD 30 or wre years, and proceed to
b rrow moLey 'a ith which to meet the
necessities of tbe government. Thit
wiU 'i show the country, as nothing else
could show it, how tr.e outt'i;ie uurt.
has mniyd the people's afftirs. The
sooner tbe democrat tike action the
oet ir fr t'.ni. If they wait five ot
mx months t eiore taking Mi ps to meet
tot: scrims corUiiion of affnirf forctd
upon ibe count. by ihe repuM can cx-tiav:;aiK-c,
ni;-r!j all tffj.-t uuon tht
mas-is of t lie ti-oplc will be lost, Bt.:
there mn ue honest liou its in omi
minds as to whether lhe republicans
wh) tiive EcBe out of tower or li e
ennH ra s v. tio ht.va come in and beei
in for 8mn.'; l'mn are responsible for
tbe dtb.'.it ncy. If prompt action is t&Uen
there -w ill be co tu-.h doubt.
A l ft Anyone Can See, '
The dul'eit man in the country will be
abie to see ibat in thi ir four ytars of
rule tbe republicans have so wrecked tbe
nuances of the govtrnrceut as to make it
necessary for 'the democrats, tbe very
first thing they do, to call upon tl e c.eJn
of the government to t-aye the govtrn-
ment from insolvency. In this way tbe
fact can be properly and justly empha
sized 'hit the democrats left the govern
ment with a surplus of $100,000,000 four
years ago, and that they now return to
power with a deficiency of a liki sum
staring them in the face as tbe fruits of
republican extravagance and mismanage
ment Curing the Harrison-Reed retime.
"In my opinion, continued Mr, Cable,
tLis is reasan enough for the calling of
aspeciul ftSfcion t f ibe fiflj-third con
gress in Mt-rcn next. lial there is
another and a higher reason. The peo
pie of this country have demanded relief
from the excessive taxation imposed by
the McK:nley law. Tey have expressed
their demand iu terms wnich cannot be
mistaken. Tbey want relief, aud they
want it aorin as possirle There is no
oiffi rercti of opir.iou in tbe democratic
psrty as to i lie duty which the paitv now
has to perform, tl doty intrustid to it by
the peope at ibe rcont e'ection. The
only dinen-r ce of opinion' is as to tbe
time tbnt t utv fclitll be perforriied. 1 am
in favor of doiDg it at tbe earliest pos.si
ble moment It is 'o be done, must be
done, Bometime. . Until it has been ac
conn lifeked thtre wid le ur certainty in
business circles. MaDufacturtrs, whole
salers and even retailer wid feel the uu
favorable effecis of the uncertainty s to
wbat is to be ibe poncy and what tbe de
tails of the democratic revision of the
tariff in response to the demands of tb
Duty of Jlemoeraey.
"To make this period of uncertainty as
sbort as possible, to clear away tbe mists
and permit business to resume its normal
course without fear or perplexity at the
earliest p ssible moment, is another d jly
of tbe democratic par'y. If congress
does not meet till L'ecember next year it
will be the middle of ibe summer of 1694
befoie tbe country will know what
changes are to be m ;da in the tariff
For a jei;r and a half, therefore, tl ere
will be uncertainty, timidity and con
servatism in inacuf neiuring, buildiDg and
making of contracts which will have a
serious til ct upon the central proper
ty. There is, in my opinion, no pood
reason why tbe country should be kept
waiting these 18 months. On the
Cf ntrary 'here is evi ry re.ion of prty
p dicy and gooi fctatcfrmansUp why ihe
period should be reduced to six months.
With a tpccial seSMon ol the next con
gress, next May etiouiu see a tarn Dill,
either a general 1 ill or a series of import
ant bills, enacted into lw. I should be
in favor ot a gentral revisit n, of d in
at once all that the democratic prty in
tends to do during tbe coming adminis
tration. I do not thick it nece9?ary to
have any txiensive it vtstlgation of the.
tariff question or to tiike testimony or
anything tf ihot sort. We have done
little tls- in this country during the Unt
five jeara but study the tariff question.
That the veople understand it I know
the people tf the west bave their mines
made up to it waB shown Dy tbe elec
tion of two weeks ago. The leading
men in tbe new congress will understand
the needs of tbe country end tbe wants
of tbe people just as well when tbey
come here in March as tbey will if tbey
wait till the following January.
Other Possible Chances,
"Such changes as the
party my mfke in the tariff laws
shou'd be h ade to go into effect some
months after ihe passage of the bill.
Ju t bow long this period should be I do
not preeunw to suggest. But sappree
all the new tariff rates were to become
opcT6tive Jin. 1, 1891 That would
give time for the et tiling of business
in preparation for the new condition?.
Contracts could be made with the tew
rates knowri and considered. Nearly all
ocratic party could change the McKioley
law in tbe direction of lower and juster
tariff rale without any shock to the in
dustries affected, and without keeping
manufacturers and traders on the anxious
eat for a year and a half. For three
reasons, as well as for tbe sake of lifting
tbe gover iment out of the financial mire
into which the reckless republicans have
olunged it, I am in f vor of a special
session of the next congress within a few
dtys alter the inauguration of President
Mr. Cable does not pretend what Mr.
Cleveland's views are on tbe subject of a
special session, but has been impressed
by tbe notion that he is studying the ma
ter with a desire to do that which shall
be best for tbe country and the demo
cratic party Without any question Mr.
Cleveland was a few days ago much op
posed to a sp cial session, at any rate to
one meeting early in tbe year before he
had time to settle bis adn lnistration
well into office. Cut the spirited ard
widespread demand of the people voiced
riy the coarhgeous democratic pres?, nas
made an impression upon bun, and if
ibis demand b contiru'd it is row prob
able Mr. Cleveland will change, his mind
and yield to tbe Bug rations of his more
mature in ement. The present ouljook
