The Puerto flican tariff bill has
brought out tbe position that the
-v. Constitution does n >t follow the Sag.
The paragraphs io the report of the'
House way* a>?'3 in^-ans committee !
whieh has canted the discussion of this
important constitutional di.vcu?sion
are the following:
"That tbe term 'United States' in
'that proiition of the Constitution
which declares that all duties imposts,
asd excites shall b? uniform
aroughout the Uuied States means
and is confiaed to the States that cont'tnte
tho Federal Union, and does
ot cover also territory belonging to
Lbe United States.
"Th*t Congress has power to gorsrn

? indent of the limitation* 01 tee ton* j
ititation n In other words tbis report
means that Congress has a free
hand in making l?wt for oar sew
vossewion*, and that these posse-sioas
are not under the peetecuon of the
Constitution. It is m&rvelons bow
he Constitution can be stretched to
ait the w-fches of the rich. The rea
soo, of course, underlying thie cont
raction of the Constitution is that
to alloTr-ualforra "duties, imposts-and
excise*7' wquld mean Cheap sugar,
tobicco and other tropical products to
t xe injury of our millionaires and their
trusts. Hence, our new islands must
not be giren constitutional guraotics.

c'icar ha* triei to come to the a?sistat

President's message sounds a little

of their relations to earh other," says
tb*- officer. Bat h* fails to show wher^
the misapprehension is. "The alt

VIcRialey didn't hav? the backbone to
do what be bad declared was a "plaiu
daty." H? charged bis "attitude" to
correspond with "the attitude" of
Congres*, and the people hav* seen it.
There is no miKappr^hcniion abont
that. The ?ame cabinet officer goes
on to say: "Th* attercpt toitpresent

The Tradesman'* figures, it may be

ifter the marvellous multiplication uf
ipindles in the three States in tbe past
iecade, there is still room for twice as
nany more to work up the local crop

oom in each of the three States for
nore mills antil t'aey have enough to
nanufaoture all the cotton they severely
grow. Ia this" view of the sitaaion,
it is especially interesting and
incoura?ing to the people of South
Jarolina to note tnat all the mills, old
ind new, they bad at work last seaioa
consumed less than half the local
;rop that was available for their use,
ind that can be grown every year.
A.nd Northern mills are still manufac.nriDg

Southern mills. It; is a piain case that
