In that part of the statement which relates
lo ores Chairman Wilson remarks that "lead
ore has a small duty of 15 per rent, hut he omits
to explain that this applies only to the lead OTC
Imported from other countries than Mexico,
and that all lead ore from that country will
hereafter be admitted free of duty, as silver
ore. If the majority had not been so anxious
to frown upon reciprocity, lt might have fixed
thia Item so that Mexico would have allowed
American products an advantage in return for
the benefit thus conferred
RKrirnocTTv UBrT IB fll i.iiuh
The statement of the majority contains
no allusion to the reciprocity policy, DOT
doea the bill directly refer to the reci?
procity provisions of existing lav/ or to
the agreements between the United States
and other countries In accordance therewith. The
bill, however, provides for the admission free of
<luty of hides, sugar and coffee without regard to
the country of production, and thus not only de?
prives the Kxeculive Of authority to offer induce?
ments to any country lo enter Into reciprocity
agreements, but removes the inducements which
led spain, Brazil. Germany, the Brittan West
India colonies and other countries to do so.
Whether those countries will continue to main?
tain the agreements after the Inducements shall
be withdrawn remains to be seen. In this rela?
tion it should be added that the revenue derived
from coffee and hides imported into the United
States during the year ended June .10. 1892, from
?erialn countries with which this country has no
reciprocity agreements amounted to about $830,
000. No revenue from those sources will bo re?
ceived tn the future if the recommendation of
the majority of the Ways and Means Committee
shall be approved and enacted Into law. If the
amount mentioned be added to the new free Hat,
the total will exceed $14,300,000.
Another salient feature of the bill ls the
sharp discrimination against the farmers and
flock-owners, as well as against the miners of
coal. Iron and lead, thc owners of such mines,
the lumbermen and the salt-producers of the
United States. Not only have they been dis?
criminated against in the transfer of so-called
"raw materials" to the free list, but in heavy
reductions of duties on other articles which are
equally "raw materials " The duty on hay. for
example, la reduced from $4 tn $2 a ton. although
the importations In 1&92 under the existing rate
increased nearly three-fold over those of the
preceding year.
A like heavy- reduction is made on nearly
every agricultural product the duties upon which
are not wiped out altogether, as In the case
of wool, eggs, flax, hemp, etc. The duty of .1
cents u donan on eggs yielded a revenue of
$.22,195 In 1S92, and every cent of lt was paid
by the Oanadlana who sold eggs for shipment
to the United States, If they are to be believed.
They shipped about 2.300,000 bushels of barley
to the United States the same year, and paid
the duties thereon to the amount of more than
$700,000. The majority proposes to reduce this
duty from 30 cents a bushel to 40 pe:- cent ad
"alorem. and thus save to the farmers of Canada
about $400,000 a year, on the basis of last year's
shipments at the expense of the National Treas?
ury and tho farmer* of the Unite J States.
But the heavy reductions are by no means
confined to the articles l:i which the farmers
and other producers of so-calle'l "ra^v ma?
terials" are especially concerned. They affect
every echedule and nearly every Item, except In
cases where rates hav? been actually Increased
through Inadvertence, and the new ratea pro?
posed are as a rule too low to enable American
manufacturers to compete successfully with
their foreign competitors except by making
heavy reductions In wages, lt ls also evident
that many of the ratea have been reduced be?
low the point which would produce the greatest
amount of revenue, and are a direct contradic?
tion of the theory upon which the bill is osten?
sibly framed?that of "a tariff for revenue only."
It ls no worse In that respect, however, than
are other features of the bill, such, for example,
as placing on thc free list wool, which yielded
$8,000,000 of revenue in 1892. The new schedules
of wool and thc metals are among the worst in
the bill.

Columbus. Ohio, Nov. 27.?The text of the Tariff
bill waa shown to (Jovernor McKinley this evening
aa he was about to leave his office for tru train
to Cleveland, and his opinion was asked of the new
free-trade measure. He did not have time to enter
upon a close comparison of the proposed measure
with the existing law, and did not therefore feel free
to discuss apeclal feature*, except to say that plac?
illa coal on the fre-s list wa* a great mistake. Re?
garding the general adoption of ad valorem duties
instead of the specific rate* imposed by the Mc?
Kinley law. he talked freely, condemning thc de?
parture In the strongest terms. He said:
"ThU objectionable feature of the new bill, if it
stood alone, ought to defeat the entire measure.
The difference between the two systems is that
the ad valorem ls upon value, the specific epoc.
quantity. The former rests upon the foreign
value, which ls hard to assertion, and calls for
expert Judgment to determine it offers ? brllie
to undervaluations because, unlike the npaetSC
duty, lt I* not always deterrninnbl ? and uniform.
When a duty is assessed hy the yard or pound,
thcrs can be no doubt concerning lt. but wheo lt
is nd valorem ii depends upon the foreign (re?
porters' honesty and the Judgment of appraisers,
and the price is usually fixed abroad to eaciipa the
payment of full rates. The *y*tem l?. so unstable
and Impossible of equitable arrangement Hist it
has never been possible, even in inls country. Vj
have ud valorem duties uniform throughout the
i'nlte.1 States. There arc frequently wide dif?
ferences between tin- value* fixed at different
parts. All the leading nations of the world have
uaadenuMd it Even iree*trada England hus aban?
doned every such duty but one, because no h. nest
administration of the revenue laws ls possible when
the valuation I* made thousand* of miles from the
point of production when it cannot ba verified.
"lu 1886 Secretary Manning made un exnaustlve
rsport upon this subject lo Congress, and quoted
a consensus or expert opinion urging td,, moen!
adoption ur specinc dude* for Hie protection of
reputable merchants uinl of the revenue. Secretary
Manning declared. In summing up the views he
h*<! g*lher<hi- that undervaluations, false invoices
and Use dishonesty were 'Puontentablv and no?
toriously Inherent' In the a(j va.oren system.
That wan a true nm\ exact atatement ol fact
which Chairman Wfisun has turned his bi-ck upon
Thia one feature of the new bill, if adopted, aside
from all others, will greatly Increase the dlfltciliie*
experienced In collecting the revenue. Fraudulent
Invoices and undervaluations will become vastiv
more prevalent under it. The evil of this ls two?
fold: It lessens th" revenue that should be paid
under th;> duty, .md doe* un Incalculable inlurv
to honest dealers who bring in good* at a fsJr
valuation. The adoption of this ad valorem syi
tsm would mean a still greater reduction of duty

Waahhagton. Nov. H?Bx-Speaher Reed, ana of
th'> proinlner.t minority members nf Hu Ways and
Means Commltte -, when asked for his views on
the new Tariff bill to-night, said:
"Of course, lt ls very easy for tba genttetaea who
prepared this bill lo present their views, Bines Uley
have been busily engaged In the work for a number
of weeks, while the Bret sight Ihat tlc- minority
had of thc bill wat- nt ll o'clock to-day. Like any
other tariff bill which cover., so many different
objects and takes up so mu:h space, all any MM
could do who bas but just seen lt ls to make Barna
obvious comments on certain portion- of it.
In the first place, thc country ought to un?
derstand thal then has been a certain degree
of unfairness about the preparation of this bill
unfairness to the country rather than IO In?
dividuals, arising from the composition of the com?
mittee. The Democracy have taken th- lion's shar
of the committee, and they have done this for a
purpose, for. while thf Norther a lvmocrats an
represented on the committee, they are represented
in such a way that the South holds a strang-' and
very unfortunate predominance. As their Industrial
status ls very much indifferent from the average of
the whole country, it necessarily follows, and ab?
solutely, In fact, has followed, that the bill ls
about as bad as could be reasonably Imagined.
This may not be true with regard to evety Item,
but it ls certainly true with regard to th-- moat
Important matters in the bill.
UBBBCaaWASt t ll v.N IBB.
"In the first place, one of the most striking
things to be objected to is the frequent unncessary
changes from specific duties to ad valorem doth
Probably any man who had actual business In
the I'nlted States knows that even If the ad valorem
duties were calculated upon thc same basia a- the
specific duties In actuul practice, owing t > the
way In which undervaluations ar.- uncle and ap?
praisements tra made, lt would ba a reduction of
at least M per cent in the tariff aa this basia.
Then li* will ba notice 1 that the package systi m.
which was in vogue pi tor to the McKinley
bill, and which had led to so many frauds
upon tba revenue?the substitution of aeiuai
articles of manufacture for simple lover?
ing* of goods?that the nearly universal sentiment
of merchants of the t'nlted States was In favor of
the change then made, and lt ls v. ry doubtful If
the provis.) In anv satisfactory way answers this
criticism. In the esry important aehedulea ihe
effect of this change from apectSc ad valorem
duties will be quite apparent. In the cotton sched?
ules specific rates have been retained, undoubtedly
because the South wai more or less Interested in
cotton manufacture*, and the deslr- to protect
their own local Interests has catis**! them to adopt
the system which they have rejected elsewhere to
the dlssiivantage of their neight>ors. lu the cotton
schedule the lowering of rales on tine goods la
likely to work very much disaster to milts that are
engaged In the production of such work, and also
In cotton yarn mills.
"In the woollen schedule the rates ate not only
too low generally, but they are ae uneven in their
reduction that the lowering of wages will not by
any possibility save some Industries, so that the
workingman in some parts of this industry will
not have the comparative good fortune only to
have their wages reduced, but are oult. likely to
lose them altogether. This ls true to some ext,-rr,
as lt seems. In the cotton schedule.
"Coel has been placed ujsin the free list for 'he
advantage of the Nova Scotia mines which have
be?n purchased by gentlemen who have been In?
terested in the tariff, and Wes- Virginia is likely
thereby, according to the Democratic Governor -if
the State, to suffer Irreparable damage and be ar?
rested in Its development.
"Iron ore ls quite free, which will cnn*-- n low?

measure from l><-. inning to end, and tn many of bs

greatly enlarged by embracing Industrie-, which
certainly will be destroyed under this bill and which
heretofore have always had a place In the protn liv.

reduced in all the schedule8, and In immy eases to
a degree that will make lt Impossible for our
domestic manufacturers to live. This is true of all
the schedules from the first to lin- la. i. The bill

Interests of the country by reeson of the reduction
of duties to such an extent as to admit foreign
products, especially from ("antila. Take my own

ehalrnta 1. Franklin B. Miller, called ihe meeting
to order. HM members of the two rival organi?

Club, made up nearly the entire asae.nblage. The
uproar hogan when .lanie* ,\. Cowie, the defeated

had been phi out until the last moment. Mr.
COwar'a Inquiry was greeted with cheers and yei!.<
from one side, and with hisses and groans from

was unheard ht the confusion.
George h. Danae offered a resolution eulogizing
the leaders and their work In the late election.
Walter Logan offered ?s a substitute a rem.hilton
denouncing "the so-called leaders, who have for
years been a stumbling-block lu the way of a
thorough unification of th.- Republican party," and
i.censing them of a bare faced deal, for aelf-aggran

rend the original resolution. After the vote he an?

and wrangling then followed, and order was brought
out of chaos only by energetic und muscular ef?

pronounced carried. Mr. COfM'a resolution ettie
tdaed Mr Dennet the leader, and offered "grate*

and receiving In compliance with their demands
several hundreds of dollars |( glac condemned the
club for "formulating and distributing throughout

After the storm of hisses and groans had subsided
the chairman pronounced the resolution carried,
und a motion to adjourn was quickly made and as
promptly decided to be carried. The chairman's
gavel had hardly fallen when the opposition made
n rush for the chairman'* desb and a third edition
of pandemonium was produced There were cheers
for t'owie and Logan and counter cheers for Deane

The Lincoln i'nlon then elected Mr. Logan chair?
man, and aa the platform was still held by Mr.
Miller and his party, the new chairman was com?
