.Mr. Tompkins discussed ih scl
eral subject of revenue an.i'yriug in
round figures ihe co.t of rivins the
various departments of the federal
government and di ning tun ihreu
principal ways prix-': ii d by th" c in
stitution for rais revenue.
"It may be said tl.at th.? fe 1 ra!
government of the L'nited S.ue !
America" said Sir. Tompkins, "a
auire.s about one thousand inllli.ui
dollars per year of revenue to pay tnc
expenses of conducting the govern
ment, divided principally as fol'ows:
the army. $100,000,000; the navy,
$125, 00000: pensions, $15,000,000;
public works, $1:5,000.000.
"Separate from thin expense of tho
general government." he continued,
"the state governments also cost
money. We may assume that the
state governments cost in the aggr.'- '
gate another thousand million dol
lars a year. It Is provided In thy' fed
eral constitution that the federal gov- ,
eminent may ra se revenue princip
ally in thn-e ways:
"(1) By internal revenues on
whiskeys and tobacco and a few
other Items und by revenue stamps
on documents when necessary. I
. "(2) By direct tux upon tile states
in proportion to their population.
"The states all raise revenue by
direct tax upon the people and the
property of tile state by license fee,
etc. The revenues of the federal gov
ernment Have always been raised by
means of internal revenues and tar
iffs on imports. With the burden of
state and county taxes already upon
them, it would be difficult to per
suade the people to submit to another
direct tax at the hands of the federal
"Therefore, it may be assumed that
a tariff on imports its now and will
continue to be one of the jnost Im
portant methods of raising the fed
eral revenues. Therefore, if this be
true. e can have no free trade and
if we must have an Import duty, it
is simply a question of how it should
be laid. We might put a uniform
percentage tax upon all imports. L '.
Us say that 10 per cent might be
enough to raise the revenue re
quired. I'ndtr this plan everything
coming into tho United states would
be taxed. Tea, coffee, sugar. silks,
steel rails, prate glass every thins
would pay the 10 per cent duty.
"We all know that it would be a
better plan to have tea and coffee on
the free list and make some otaer
things pay a .higher tariff. We all
know that in some lines of industry
a higher tariff would not only bene
fit the industries in the United
States hut would make indirect bene
fits sometimes almost incalculable.
Therefore we perceive that a tarilf
may be laid so as to benefit the Am
erican people and it may be laid ir.
ways that submit the American peo
ple to an unfair price.
"lift us take the canes of the tariff
tin coarse cotton goods," continued
the speaker. -'Fifteen years ago theit
was over production of cotton; the
price was j cents per pound. Wages
throughout the cotton growing dis
trict were very low and work diffi
cult to get. Everybody produced cot
ton and it was sent abroad to be
manufactured. .Since that time fac
tories have been developed in cotton
