Om tnk, Mlvtrid by o*rrtar ywm month, by mall fbrea month*, by mall MX month*, by man >n? year, by mall MS . .JI . 1* . ?.M . It* NOT NECESSARILY ATTACKING PROTECTION In advocating a more enlightened trade policy for the United states, the Daily Alaskan is not uecessarilv assail ing the "protect We tariff." What it, with nearly all those who desire a poli cy that will develop our foreign com merce, desires is the abolition of a "prohibitive tariff," that restrict# traie and which is developing a spirit of re tain ttion among other countries against us. It believes that this can be best brought about by a broad application of the policy of reciprocity, such as was advocated by that great American James G. Blaine. This is not, of course, an endorsement of those abortive nego tiations to secure so-called reciprocal treaties that have characterized the American commercial policy for the last half-dozen years and which nego tiations lack* d the e-.-^ntial element of good faith on the paM of our commis sioners as a foundation. ^ hen our country shall enter into negotiations for the purpose of making trade froer, and not for the purpose of securing the concession of market# without conced ing anything, then will the term "reci procity" have a real meaning. To make reciprocity an effective agency in the development of commercial America it must be used as a means to bring about that ultimate? not imme diate? free trade referred to by James A. Garfielii, who sa.d as early as IS""' that he believed in a tariff that would lead to ultimate free trade. In ad.ocatir.g this polcy 'he Daily Alaskan has good republican a# well a* democratic authority for its course. It is in direct i ne with the last speech ever delivered by the late President McKinley, and it is in accordance with the political speeches delivered by President Roosevelt in October liXC It is not. it is true, the doctrine that seems to dominate those in control of the legislative branch of our govern ment at the present time, nor would the adoption of such a policy be entirely satisfactory to the Standard Oil. the Steel and kindred trusts. However, it is the policy advocated by nearly all of tho?e whose hope of profit lies in the greater development of American trade and commerce, and not in the more ex clusive enjoyment of monopoly. Furthermore, with nearly all of those who who hate made a study of the sit uation. the Daily Alaskan contends that there should be no relationship between the trade policy obtaining between the United States and ? anaila and the gen eral tariff policy of the nation. The questions should be considered separ ately. The United States requires no more protection against Canada than the state of New York requires against the state of Texas, and free trade be tween '.he Unit' il States and Canada would be as beneficial toCanana as free trade between the several American states is beneficial to each of them.
