Th" February number of "Tho Nineteenth Cen
Ivy" contains un article <in the "Prospects of Pres
Trade in the Unite. States" by aChaunoey M. De?
pt"^ in Which he ti vi-w , the tariff reform agita
tion and the abandonment by the reformers of
their position, an>l reaches the conclusion that "only
s miracle can prevent the ra turn of the Protection?
ists to power" The following extracts are re?
printed from the arti- la:

nuneFi t.i --online the people 'at the Northern Ameri?
can colonies tn agricultural inns nts and have
England furnish their manufactures. This v.as one
of ths causes whl< ti led t<> the Revolutionary War
and the Independen e of the United States. One of
the earliest messages of George Washington, our
tirst President, waa t" approve ? report 'af the
(Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton,
embodying a scheme for developing th?- res..ur. ??*
and promotinK the*Industries "f the country by a
protective tariff. Uamllton ?"ss one "f the ni"st
original and creative statesmen of any age cr of
hti> country. Hts report has formed th.- basis ''f
all legislation and presented the gist of every argu?
ment ian th>- BUbiect from that day t" this. Upon
the moditl'-ation but never upon the abandonment
of this policy, upon the details of protection, but
never upon the principles of free trade, ?very
politi.-_l contest was fought down t" our Civil War.
The requirements for rev.ie In that tremen?
dous contest led io the enactment in IK1 of ?
blither and more general tarli! than ever, which
remained in force, practically unchanged, except
to Include oth'-r products, until the McKinley bill.
The McKinley legislation hhs really a codification
-f' ths many laws .-.!ii<h had been enacteal stn ?
ISO, with such alterations as changed conditions
Beemed t" demand, lt released wholly or In part
articles which no tonger needed protection, and tonk
tram the free Jim, a,r Increased the tariff upon,
articles hitherto Imported which, i?*-itj--r produced
In the I'nit. i States, would furnish employment lu
new Industries to a population which was Increas?
ing by stimulated snd unusually heavy Immigra?
tion too rapidly to be readily absorbed.
Th'- measure produced unusual excitement anal
alarm because it was enacted "n th'- eve of a gen?
era) election and when a large and comprehen?
sive reduction of duties was expected. Hs poaalble
evils were magnified In prophecy, and there was
no time par demonstrating it-- results. The country,
frightened by tl"- clamor, rushed madly fruin the
Imagined eiant-.-r e>f its enforcement t" the real
pc-ri ls of an Industrial revolution. . . .
S vr contributed nothing to tMj rat-suit, though
lt was an Important factor In the business crisis
whian followed. In several -,t the newer States
the mining "f silver was the principal Industry.
N . party could hope for Ita electoral votes In s
Pri lent tal a-ie.-ti.in which was n..t favorable i" the
monetising "f this metal In sa.nu- fiann. There has
been for n years a growing belief, particularly
in the agricultural mates, thal a Bingle gold .-t.uri?
