BAD tI'IES IN FBANCE. f Free Trailer Say It Is tlie Kesult of tlie I'roteetive Tariff. j Washington, Nov. 2S. There ap ' pears to be a curious resemblance be ; tweeu the commercial situation in France and that iu the United States, ariitng : from diametrically opposite causes as sot forth iu the report to the interior de partment by Styven Angell, United States I commercial agent at itnuuaix. lie quotes ! from a le I lows: ding French authority as fol- ; "The commercial situation is grave, or i it appears to bo, which is the same thing ! for the ireneral public. There are pro ' teciionists and free trader3, both of whom seek the solution accord ing to their respective views of the financial policy now iu force, which is decidedly a protectionist one. The linancial crisis is contemporaneous with the inauguration of the new tariff and the supporters of the tariff are called on to explain the fact that from the commence ment of the year 1SU2. which was the date of the enactment of the new tariff, until September 1834. there was a falling off in exports of more than C,6!t9 million francs. "Bad times exist. They began with the new tariff. Therefore the tariff is the cause. Such ia the rea soning which the free traders put forward, but the protectionists point to the fact that France does not suffer alone from the diminution of the exports: that England, a country with a free trade policy has suffered as well, and that the depression which exists in Prance is experienced everywhere. "It isgeneia'Iy admitted nevertheless, that the tariff is responsible for the fall ing off of tiU'j million francs in e prona tions to Spain and 80 million to Switzer land during these thirty-six months The result is that the free traders and suffer ers from the depression in general are crying out loudly and are demanding a change in the existing legislation.'"
