Thus our present sourcea of supply would bo largely curtailed, for under normal crop conditions thefe domestlo and Insular pouiees of production are now furnishing upwind of 1.800,000 tons, or halt our sup ply. Once this production was so reduced, foreign prices would udvnnce until they reached u point where domestic producers could again enter the Held; how long a time this would require Is problematical ; meanwhile, disaster would bo widespread and ronsumets would get but n temporary benefit. United Ntatea Hnbber C. Col. Hamuel 1. Colt, president of the United States Ilublier Company, said: The proposod reduction lu tha hard ruh ber schedule from 3.1 par cent, to 55 per cunt, ad valorem leaves sufficient protec tion, but tho proposed reduction from 35 per cent, to 10 per cent, ad valorem In tho soft rubber schedule, which Includes automobile tires, Is Insufficient protection and should be modified to conform to the hnrd rubber schodulo. Thoro aro forty manufacturers of auto, mobile and vehicle tires in the country nnd the sharpest competition prevails be tween them. Prices have been reduced over 40 per cent, since 1010 und at the same time labor has been advanced more than half of that amount. With existing lower prices for crude ruhber labor phiya a mora Important part In the production of tires than formerly and 10 per cent, duty Is not sufficient to overcome tho difference in wages In this country and foreign countries, especially when taken In connection with the higher cost of con struction and maintenance of maniftocj. We favor freo sugar and regret that it has been taken off the proposed free list. A 15 per cent, reduction is not big enough and three years is too long to wait for the article to become non-dutiable. rrom llnmmoni! Typewriter Oo. This Is tho response of Nell D. Becker, president of tho Hammond Typewriter Company, New York: The business of manufacturing type writers Is likely to suffer severely if the proposed tariff bill becomes a law, The bill retains n tariff upon many of the ma- 'turlaU out of which wo make typewriters, hut takes tho tarifT off the completed arti cle. This arrangement Is so unjust that I think It must b tho result of an over sight. The Oermans are able to buy their material cheaper than we, and their labor costs them much less, so that If the bill goes through' they will bo able to deliver typew-rltna In America cheaper than we can furnish them. The effect will doubt leas bo a reduction In wages of employees engaged tn the manufacturing of type writers. Our European reprosentalve re port to us that tho aerman manufacturers are Jubllunt over the prospect and are freely predicting that they will compel many American typewriter companies to closo their factories. As to the effect of the new bill upon the cost of living generally I am of the opinion that tho coit df living to th people as a whole may bo somewhat de creased, although considerable suffering will ba caused lu certain lines because of tha necessary readjustments, ' Lackawanna Strel Compaar.
