for the future. We lost only iu those places
| where the tniu>l was dotuinated by pas
sion, where partisanship and blind prrju
[ dice of race and section overcame l>enevo
lenee and lore for a whole country. The
| tariff should be settled and removed for
j ever from the domain of politics, for it
not only disturbs business, but preveuts
| the simple purpose of universal benefi
cence, for which alone our government is
fitted. It «•« nvtrts our legislative
halls into scenes of barter between con
tiictiag interests, where wrangles over
means to enable uir:i to get more and still
more money from our citizens becomes the
chief characteristic of the peoples repre
setatlvcs ll«»w can this question be set

tcctive tariff shoa?» it can be settled. It
euuld even be embodied in the constitu
tion. We have but to provide that no ar
tides which ean be prod need ©r made in
this countrv shall IK* imported or that they
shall bo subj cted to a duty of, say 1000
percent, ad valorem. This would settle
the question and remove it forever
from politics. Th:s settlement, however,
can only be had after the principle iu
volv ed has beeu held naked before the
people and unproved by an overwhelming
majority. This question has not yet been
presented to the people, and the blame of
its uou-preseutraent re*ts with those busi
ness men and manufacturers who ware
active in the late campaign and who will
now complain thai your agitation tends to
disturb that which for their interest oaght
be settled. We are told that this modern
tariff idea is i>opular in some Southern
state* aud that the party who advoeates it
will so<'!» b.- strengthene<l by
their support. Thi* may or may
not be t r If auy of those **ates can be
