WATTERSON ON THE TARIFF. a
LOUISVILLE, Jan. 8.--At the an
nual meeting ot the Wattorson
Club, the great Democratic asso
ciatioi of this city, Mr. Henry t
Watterson was the chief speaker.
After some introductory remarks P
Mr. Watterson said: c
If history wore fiction, and poli- c
tics a game of blind-man's buff, d
poots would be statesmen, and e
only children would vote. Thoro t
was never a more deliberative act h
done by a deliberative body than C
the substitution of tho Neal plank a
for'tho Vilas plank by the Nation- J
al Democratic Convention of 1892. s
It was the logical culmination of vN
a campaign of education covering a
ten years. It was an act of the a
people setting aside a subterfuge
of the politicans. It was not dono
at the (lead of night, under whip t
and spur, but between the hours I
of 6 and 9 o'clock in tho ovoning, p)
when the Convention was wide n
awako and know perfectly what n
it was about. It was not jlanned, f
to obstruct the nomination of Mr.
Cleveland ; though, if the Conven
tion had suspected that Mr. Clove- a
land had any hand in the original 0
tariff plank, which it struck out, I
be would not havo received one- 1
third of its votes. Both Mr. Vilas 1)
and Mr. Whitney were assured by t
myself and others that no obstruc- a
bion was meditated ; and it is well i
known that, averse as I was to the tj
iamination of Mr. Cleveland, I c
cogardod it as a foregono conclu
;ion before the Convention mot,
imd had consed to disturb any- -r
,)ody or to be disturbed on that P
iccount. In short, in the most
locisivo and, as far as anything in
American potitics can be solemn.
in the most solomn-at least in
the most serious way-the Con
vention ended, as I hoped finially
and forever, the long struggle be
twoon the forces of light and dark
ness in the Democratic party by (
stamping out. a double-tongued I
assertion of its tariff policy and t
inserting a declaration which no C
hluman being could miisunderstand s
Randallism was dead-Carlislo- IV
ism was rampant. And with Clove- I
land for Moses-Cleveland, and d
is message of 1887-Clovoland, y
is the Democrats' -ideal of tariff it
reform-we wont to the country. It
We mot the onset of tho Ropubli- P
Caans full iln tront. Th ey madc tI
Ltheir fight directly on our tariff "
plank. They described 'it a a I
slip out of the Confederate Coi-- a
atitution-. They denounceed i6 as a
Ca 1hI otu n' is m, redivivijs. There A
was nothing that could be said of a
it, or of us that they did not say. ih
All thle worn out pleas of protoc- $
Lion, all tile exploded shells of r
sectionalism, were throwvn into tile t;
breach wve had made ill tihe wall of d
the robber castle. But thley didl o
not suffice to save it. In spite of
all, withl our tariff-for-revenue-on- _
ly flag flying and our down-with- c
protection dIrumns beating, we (drovo e
the robber barnos out of their t
earth-works, across tlaoir moats ej
and dikes, into their lair, and out o
again, remaining, for tihe first time i
since 1857, comloto mal~stors of v
tihe situation, every dlepairtmoneut of t
tile Government ill our possess- a
THE MORAL OF THE~ VICTORY.. a
Eithler we were righut, or we w~ere v
wrong. Tile vote os 1890, follow- r
ing the passligo of tile McKinley a
Act, seemed to indicate that tihe I'
people thought we were right. I
But the vote of 1892, electing a I
Democratic President and a Dom- a
:>cratic House. arid Senate, wvasi
conlclusfivO onl this point. If it
was nmo.t' so then somebody was "

A TARIFF FoR lREVENUE ONLY.

Ad an .orities I would got togoth

wou I then find a clean shet of
rtpor. I would lay this o1 tho ta

10 big, oblong tablo in the ways
ad eioaiis coimii)it tee room. Then
would open the cupboard con
kiling, among other porishablo
mtonts, the McKinley bill; I
ould take this out-nono too
mitly-and pitch it into the fire.
lien I would draw upon my clean
eco of paper throo linos. Thus:
Article. Duty. Revenue.
I would begin at tho top of the
rat column with sugar. Thon the
uty-say one cent a pound. Thon
ho .ostimated rovenue-say $35,
00,000. Then I would abolish the
agar bounty, making a difference
f $45,000,000 in"'the rovenuo. I
ould follow with tea and coffee.
would continuo, giving preco
Ice, as far an possible, to revenuo
iolding comnodities not produced
i this courtry down through the
Irgest revenuo yielding domestic
roducts-without the least rega rd
> rotectioni, incidental or ot her
iso-and when I got $200,000.000
would iltop. -T'hen I would take

ould frame an- intorinal Revenue

Theon I wiould~ call tile coinmmittee
-the D~emocratic members of the
>mlmittoo, I mean-and, when aniy
no of them proposed to confuse
1c simp~licity of this perfectly
'ariff-for-revenue-only Act by the
ld cant aibout the dlangor of b)eing
>o precipitate and extreme, I
'ould knock hull out-not down
y saying: "1Road( the (Nation
1 Democratic platform." And, if
notheor should try to befog thre is
uio, to juggle the rotulrns, as it
'ere, by an effort to revive the old
lisleading systonm of schedules

im-not b~y the collar, but, by the
utton-and lead him over to the
teopublican sido of the table and
[Ly to him: "Th'lo Mc~iinloy bill

Finally, I would say-t~o thomn 1111
Gontlemon, I am a Domiocra t. In
coordanco with the Diooeratic

..THE cOWiARD's REFUG~J~E.
Well, anid what wiould happon?
Nhy, all the big cowards and thc
ittlo cowiardls in tihe party-I mear
noffice-wiould hold up thoil
mands in holy horror. Som
would call mo a lunatic and oth
ors a fool. The robber barom
would roar back on their haunchoi
and howl. It would look for t
while as though holl had brok<
looso for cortain. That would noi
phaso me a particle. I have hears
tho wind whislo through the rig
ging many a time, and lived t(
toll the talo on dry land and ii
dry garments. I would stand b3
my guns and fight for my faith
and in tho end I would got mor
votos for my bi!! than I fear car
bo got for the Wilson bill, as orig
inally roportod. If passed, w(
should have something worth hav
ing, and, if it should fail, as il
probably would we could go to th(
people with a squaro issuo-a plair
issuo--an issuo soparating th(
lambs from the kids, sending tei
cowards to the roar and the wolves
in sheop's clothing back into tih
Ropublican party whoro they be
long-and brnging tho whole
question to the finality, whether
wo aro to livo under a protective,
or a rovonuo system.
FROM TIE FEw TO THE MANY.
I appoal from tho solfishnoss and
timidity of the politicians to the
con1non honesty and coninonl
sonso of the people. I apl)oal from
the rapacity of the American aris
tocrat, rolling in luxury an(]
wealtb, to simplo and homoly go
nius of that Americanism which
won tho llovolutiolary battlo fi a
liberty and made th Constitution.
I do not confuso the issuo. I an:
not the slavo of a singlo idea. I
knoW that theory is one thing and
practice is another thing, and tht~t
statesiansihip is a practical sci
once'. But ho i; no statosman whC

THlE TWO REPORTS.
I have read with exceeding car
and deop) concern thpo reports ac
-companvaag the newly-introducel
mieannen of tariia rii. Tn
Democratic report bogins by a
masterly declaration of tariff-for.
revenue-only logic, to end in (n
actual exposition of Protectionist
practice. Thte Republican report
seizes the weak point effectively
add both in its sarcasm and its
offrontery shows us how impossk.
blo it is to placato the implacable.
-For the chairman of the ways and
moans committee I entertain the
very greatest respect. Ho is an
able, conscientious, patriotic Doni.
ocrat. He has'encountered diffi
culties and mado sacrifices and
ondnred disappointments, which
should earn him the sympathy
rather than the criticism of hi,
party associates. But with sub
mission I think ho has been forcod
by pressure and not by his own
.consent to bring in a measure that
strikos a blow at the cause of gon
uine tariff reform, and may et
tho p9licy of revonuo only back
ior many years to come.
FREE TRADE VERSUS PROTECTION.
I do not claim nearly so much
for froo trade. I claim that it will
make more work by creating wider
markets. I claim that it will do
croaso the costs of living in groat
or monsure than it will roduce'oarn
ings. Tho question of wagos is a
question of supply and domand,
puro and simplo. In the crowded
cities, wliero mon must work or
qtarvo, thoy take what they can
;,'t and wagos or low. In now and
less crowded conimunities, where
opportunitids aro open to all and
good nio are at a promnium, wages
As our wasto placos aro filling up
the problom is how shall all who
want to work bo kept in stoady
0111 ploy ment? Relatively, wages
are bound to go down as popula
tion increases and labor-saving ma
chinery takes the placo of hand
work, and the problem is, how shall
wo decrease in fair proportion th<
cost of living? My anspor to th<
first problem is by breaking dowi
ithe barriors that shuit us out fron

twoon the emnployeo, and tho om.
ployed. But, I am asked, can
theose two things b dono withoul
ruin to the Amorican manufactur.
er? My answer is that they car
bo dono and have been done to the
eminent good fortune of Ameri
can manufactures and comnierco
and can be done again to with th<
same result ; that we have ha'd good
and bad seasons under all tariffs
high and lowv; but that tihe low tar
iifY offers advantages to the many
biy curtailing subsidy and limiting
monopoly, while a high tarifi
pours wvealth into the lap of the
few by the opportunities it offers
to combinations and trusts. Fom
proof I point to tile operations oi
thirty years of protection; enorm
one wealth in a few hands; a uni,
versal struggle to live among th<
many; doeper, darker contrasts o:
life, and discontent everywvho.
There will not be such excessivi
