OMAIL, Nov. 1. To the Editor ot The
Bee: I havo been nmuscd at the efforts
of many leaders of the democratic party
to deny tho responsibility of that party
for tho panto and hard tlmcB that de
pressed and blighted our country Vrom
1632 to 1KW. They now claim that the
hard times was caused by the operation
of the MoKlnley tariff law. It may be
that many voters who will cast their
first vote at the coming election will bo
deceived, because at that tlmo thoy were
either nonresidents or too young to know
or appreciate the business conditions of
the country. I well remember that in
Harrison's administration our nation was
enjoying prosperity a prosperity which
can bo favorably compared with our
present good times. Then the democratic
party was advocating froe trade and a
reduction of tho tariff. The party then,
aa now, was not settled on any definite
policy. Some leaders were for free trade
and others for tariff for revenue only.
Aftar tho Wilson tariff law passed tho
house and senate, ProMdent Cleveland
would not sign it because it did not
conform to his Ideas of freo trade, and It
became a law under the, ten-day pro
vision. The effect of the operation of
that law la well known to nil except
many new voters and now comers. To
day Mr. Wilson, candidate for president,
asserts that he is not for free trade, and
that ho has not hoard a single thought
ful tlcmocrate declare for freo trade. He
does not come out squaroly for tariff
for revenue only, but favors a policy of
going through all the schedules ot the
tariff and cutting every one of them out
whero illegitimate privilegee are con
cealed. In other words, he believes in
the principle of protection to be applied
by a democratlo tariff measure. Can you
Imagine what It would be? No doubt,
another Wilson bill.
Mr. Marshall, the candidate for vice
president. Is opposed to any degree of
protection, and some leaders assert that
a protective tariff law is unconstitu
tional; that the government haa no right
under the constitution to levy taxes In
excess ot what would be necessary to
defray the running expenses of tho gov
ernment. I would suggest that the demo
crats set together and harmonize, tt they
can, their own positions before appealing
to tho voters of a prosperous nation frtr
support. It the democrats would be fair
and honest with the People they would
admit their mistakes and promise to
avoid them If given another chance to
rule. It la true the clouds' ot buslnesa
depression were gathering before Cleve
land was Inaugurated In March, 1S93.' In
the campaign for his election the demo
crats made a tight on the tariff Issue, and
naturally all business directly affected by
the tariff prepared for a possible and
probable change. Retrenchment, followed
all along 'the lines of Industrial activity;
millions of men were thrown out of em
ployment and thousands ot business In
stitutions went to the wall. The farmer
did not evcape the scourge. The market
for hla products was practically de
stroyed. Importers, on account of the
proposed change of schedules, curtailed
land and Investigate conditions for him
self. Ono of the recent amendments ex
empting Trinity college, Dublin, from
control of tho Irish parliament, although
accepted by the Irish nationalists,
brought out a protest from Dr. Mahaffy.
the most brilliant scholar of the collego.
Dr. Mahaffy did not want Trinity col
lege separated from the general life of
Ireland, and his protest brought confu
sion to the opposition. There Is UtUe
doubt that the bill will be passed by the
Commons before the holiday recess, but
lta final success depends on the libera,
party and Its allies remaining in power
for two more years, and repassing the
bill after each of two rejections by the
House of Lords,
HI ah Coat of Living.
Tho growing cost of living Is becoming
a worldwide problem. All AUBU-alasIa Is
growling about It and state and federal
governments aro urged to "do something"
for relief. Rents and the prices of nec
essaries of life are soaring. Meat prices
are most troublesome The Australian
consumer has been aroused to Indigna
tion by the publication of figures show
ing that mutton, beef and butter from
Ills own country are often cheaper in
London than in Melbourne and Sydney.
The labor minister of customs recently
quoted In Parliament atatlallca demon
atratlng that the wholesale rates in
London in April, June, July and August
for Vutter wero 17 to W ahilllngs per
hundredweight cheaper than thoso rates
In .Melbourne, notwithstanding tho coat
of freight and middlemen's ciiarges. Pro
tectionists throw aome of the blame
' upon the high revenue duties, whllo tne
I farmer, the. labor free traders and many
I city merchants denounce tho protective
, imMmiv nf the. tariff. A commission ap
pointed to investigate tho cost of living
in New Zealand haa issued a report
which declares that Tents have risen by

The Moroccan Trenty.
Tripoli, following Morocco under the
ortr.tmi nf Rtirrmfian Dowers, ends
Mohammedan control over any part of
tho north coast of Africa. About tho
same time that Turkey relinquished sov
ereign rights In Tripoli and Cyrenalca,
Franco and Spain reached an agreement
on tho division of the territorial loot of
Morocco. According to the now treaty
Morocco wli. bo divided Into three sep
arate spheres. The first of ,these will
contain Tangier and a small territory
about that city. This will bo subjected
to international control, and the French,
Spanish. German and British govern
ments will be on. equal footing hero. This
portion of tho treaty conforms to exist
ing treaties of France and Spain with
Great Britain and removes tho poasibIN
Ity of the transformation ot Tangier Into
a naval fortress which would counterbal
ance Gibraltar. Apart from Tangier, the
second sphere concedes to Spain the
northern regions of Morocco on the Med
iterranean and the Atlantic ports of
Larache and Arzlla. Tho big plum which
falls to France Includes Fez and Mo
rocco City. Its area. Including Saharan
oases, Is slightly less than that of France.
Its population Is variously estimated at
from 4,000.000 to 8,000,000. In this great
country France la now freo to act as it
will, subject to the guarantees of com
mercial equality contained in Its, British
and German treaties.
Importations, thus depriving the govern
ment of needed revenues. Tho depletion
of the revenues, coupled with the demands
on the treasury mado necessary by tho
silver purchase act, soon placed the gov
ernment Into financial trouble, nnd It
was forced to Issue bonds to raise money
to defray necessary expenses.
I know that thd democrats will say, this
