WORK OF CONGRESS.
REVIEW OF THE SESSION BY CON
' GRESSMAN WILSON.
Attempts to Amend the McKinlejr Law.
Economy in Appropriations Wherever
Possible— Conservatism on Silver—What
Congress Did Not Do.
The work of the recent Bession of con
gress has been ably summarized by Hon.
William L. Wilson, of West Virginia, as
follows:
I Tho fundamental creed of the Demo
cratic party Is 6h«t we are to work out onr
prosperity more by individual effort than
by laws of congress. It is not a believer in
high government or in plentiful legislation.
It seeks to confine federal legislation in
the field prescribed for it by the constitu
tion, and it seeks to confine all legislator
In limits where it cannot invade tho indi
vidual freedom of the citizen. To judge a
Democratic house, therefore, we must con
sider not the quantity but the quality of
the work it, has done.
With an adverse senate and an unfriendly
executive, it would have boon mere brava
do for the Democratic house to enter upon
any thorough course of reformatory legis
lation. It sought to relieve the burdens of
tho tax-payer and to stimulate American
Industry and commerce by repealing the
most oppressive taxes of the MoKinlcy bill.
Having decided through its committee to
attack that bill in detail Tnthcr than by
a general revision, it passed in turn six
tariff bills as follows: Putting wool on the
free list and reducing the duties on woolen
goods; putting binding 1 wine, cotton ties
and cotton bugging, as wlso machinery for
Making cotton bagging, on the free list;
repealing duties on silver-lead ore and tin
plate, and limiting the amount of wearing
apparel that, can bo brought into the coun
try free of duty. These six bills make up .
-a substantial measure of relief, and they
■ carry the benefits of tariff reform home tc
the working people of the country. They
would have been followed by other biik
had not the senate, shown its determinatioa.
to ignore all of then). They led to ac
hate, especially tin: woolen and tin plnte
bills, that evoked a large number of very
good tariff reform speeches, excellent con
tributions to tire campaign of education.
Any attempt M throw ridicule on them as
not being a subs) tint ial fulfillment of Dem
ocratic promises to the people is met try an
assertion of a prominent Republican mem
ber of the ways and means committe that
they amount to a virtual repeal el the
McKinley bill.
In the anwmt of its expenditure?, this
house has not been able to reduce as much
as it cxpoctwl the appropriations u>f the
Fifty-first, cmgress, because it could not
repeal the laws of that enngrmsthat added
so enormously to our annual budget. To
be frank, tht dependent pension biH of Mr.
Reed's congress added many millions to
our yearly appropriations, and, assail men
know, pension legislation never go>;s back
ward. So with the subsidy and bounty I
bills of tlmt congress, which tl«« house '
was powerless to repeal.
But while it has met feanrstly tho re
quirements of these law* the house has
been in the main careful of it* own ex
penditure*. It baapayaunl -no new public
building bills. It has passed fewer private
bills carrying appropruil ions -than any
recent congress, and its private pensionj
bills have been more carefully scrutinized
to separatetlie good from the bafi.
Ob the-silver question tbe house declined*
to pass the Bland bill and refused to take
up tire Stewart bill. Kwrai those who be
lieved that there was in these it-ills sonic.
potential benefit to tlie pnonle must admit,
that the Democratic pawy could not have
coranwtted itself to fiw coinarte at *be!
ratio proposed in that* bille without
throwing ivtviiy every pivwpect of success
in the presidential eaaa]Mdtgti and liecominp
for the time being almost a southern ami
sectional party. It was the . highest politi
cal sagacity,- whatever might, have beenthi
merits of the proposed legislation, to avoid
a step certain to disrupt the party,,-and
with that 'disruption flj-mly and pernn
neotly to seat in power tbe protected'plu
tocracy, witfc full oppc-rtomtyto plunder
the people xv.th new tariff bills and toerlij
jugate them with force buls. The present
houscdoes net suffer in any point in com
parison with the last. Itliias had a codetof
rules aud mi ad ministration <of its nites
that did not become autoeruoioor partisan,
and tbe righfcn of its smtail iminority of 'Re
publican und third party members have
been uniformly respected.
It has been rot ably fre* from acrimcni
ous debates, and its records nowhere show
the paasionate:&nd indignant -protests of a
wronged minority which inarned the >pro
ceeding-s-of the last house.
I have never known a bouse in which
there has been.iess buncom'uo partisamde
bating or one in which there was 'less
effort to manufacture campaign material
on the eve of a national election.
If theihouse has been thwarted by:the
senate in its general work aud ia its efforts
to lessen the buitdeins of tbe people, itibas
given proof of its, desire to -lis both, and
has been always tender in adding new
charges upon the treasury.
It did not increase taxes. It passed no
subsidy bill. It woted no bounties. It
passed nobills to .overthrow electionirnii
the states. It vacatoU no Kepublican seats
for Democratic contestants except in one
case, and that upon >n practi«tally unani
-mous commiittee report, ft did not robthe
minority of their rigkts or servilely sur
render its own right* m.'o the hauds of He
speaker and its comm'ttee on rules. If
under firm discipline and recognized lead
ership it might have dene all that it did
more expeditiously and -live added other
and even wiser measures of relief and re
form, it still kept its -work fairly abreast
with the progress of the senate, and it
shawed once again how .much safer for the
country and hosv much newer to the people
is a.Democratic house thus, one which rep
resents tbe great special interests of the
country. Those interests demand legisla
tion tor their own benefit, and demand it
so imperiously tt.at parliamentary law,
traditional usage,*ill the safeguards of free
legislation and of free elections must go
down before them. The people of the coun
try cannot again safely trust .the house of
to tiie Republican party.
What Fixes Wngesf
Republican protection is justifled by its
/authors asd promotec.4 solely upon the as
sumed ground that it benefits tihe worlc
ingnian. %he platform adopted at Minne
apolis demands the continuance ,of high
protection in order th ; it capitalists may
pay to workingmen higher wages than are
paid in the .foreign manufacturing con
cerns with which native manufacturers
are called upon to compete. Here is a-sim
ple issue, and if itcan.be shown that the
effect of Republican protection is not to
improve the wagt-js of American working
men, the fallacy of .the Republican pretenst
ia exposed. ,
If Republican protection really helps the
workingman it muse act iv this fashion;
Tbe duty npon foreign goods must be high
enough either to prevent their importation
or so to increase their price that they shall
not undersell goods marie in the United
States. In other words, protection must
either leave the American market.exclu
sively to the American manufacturer, or it
must see that prices are high enough to
make sure that hi* goods sell at a fair
profit,
. Jfclt frber* does the workjngman sow
mf Nobody pretends that protectee man
ufacturers pay higher wages merely be
cause they are able to do so. They pay the
market rate. But what fixes the market
rate? Workingmen and f&rmcri c;'.ll on
swerthls question ns well as any one else
If only they will stop a moment to think
upon things that go on under their noses.
L/:t us first ask the farmer what he knows
about wages. He sees that the pay or
farm laborers in wintor, where there is lit
tie to do and there are plenty of idle men
to do it, is small. He sees that wages go
up and up in harvest time when work is
plenty and hands are scarce. What, then,
fixes wages? Not the feeling of the farmer
who hires workmen, but the amount of
work to be done compared with the num
bor of men to do it, or, as the phrase is,
demand and supply.
1 What do workingmen know nhout this
measure? Every farm laborer sees Just
what the farmer sees, and all other kind::
of workmen see the same thing. If you
happen to have a trade requiring skill ami
a lOOS apprenticeship, so that compara
tively few men can get into it, wages in
that trade will be high, because the men
that work at it are scarce. If you happen
to do unskilled work that any good, strong
man of onjlinary intelligence can do, wa;;«i
will be lowtr than in the other trade, be
cause most men have strong muscles and
intelligence enough to do sue h work. But
suppCKe a village is about to make new
strcWis, build sewers or do any other such
work that requiren many <s<iy laborers,
don't you find that until tfco village gets
more men asking for jobs than it has jobs,
togfoe it must pay more than thansSa]
rr.tewf laborers'wages in that, region? It
is the old story of demand and supply,Jand
tbe village does not pay more wages be
cause it is able to pay them, but because it
nsnst pay them.
Again, suppose men in a particular
(Skilled trade forma labor union and ask
fror higher wages. What happens? The
•employer either pays the udrance or re
fuses to pay it. By refuses if he'believes
that lie cannot easily get other men hi
place of those' Who ask mor&wagris. Does
he pay tlie advrtnee because protection or
something else makes him. abh: to pay it?
No, but because he must pay it or quit
business. He*i 1b the play of supply and
demand modeled, not by protection, look
you, but by toe artificial scarcity of labor 1 ,
produced by'-the for/mutton ot a working
men's union. Now and then we hear rff
protuctetl employers who refuse to grant
tberlemands of their n*eli,ii»ck them out,
and<evcn go to war with them in order" j
avoid pacing an ndvunce of wages, a»xl
that,'too, nfter congress has increased the
profteeriori on the manufacturer's prodnxts
in order that he nray pay higher "wages.
This is the sort of humbug that Rej-üb
lirmn protection iswhewever you lock it
eQtiarciy in t!ie face.
.Who Are tho Millionaire?
DM. you evcrhwvrbf a farmer Ifhtit got,
"to Ks a millionaire merely by drivic.jj the
pImVP Did you ever see a warkir.Kman
Wbo became- a millionaire by the work of
his liands? Who are the millionaires of
America? If yoivleave out the successful
speculators of one-sort or another y»u will
• find that they-are men who have .profited
tlirough some special privilege grafted by
law, and a groat!"many of them tare men
wiio have prafited by the Hepublk-nn pro
tective tariff, which its authors ;now pre
vtt nd is designed for the -sole benefit of
'Mage earners.
Turn to uny list of millionaires)' and then
' place beside that list a basines* directory
• of the United States, the full ached ule of
the McKbnkj-y lr.w and a list at the "trusts"
organized Wibliin tbe past- few ye:.rs. You
will be surpifised at some of coinci
dences that >will appear. You will find
that marry<dftthe industries that have had
the largeKtunfi the highest protection ap
i pear in tbe ltet of trusts, while/ the stock
holders of those industries appear in the
list of millionaires. You will find pro
tected coal-owning million aire*, protected
glassuuLking -millionaires, protected steel
making millionaires, protected hatmaking
millionaires, protected shipbuilding mil
lionaires and a dozen other classes of mil
lionaires-madozen other highly protected
industries. '?i'ou will not find the name of
a single working farmer. You will not J
find the mams of a single wage earner. 15
is the business of Republican protection to
create millionaires, and that, too, at the
expense iof: former and wage earner.
3*rtktQction to Farmers.
Is any i nrnter fooled by the,pretense that
the McECirtla,- tariff protects farmers? It
pretendeditonio so by raising the duty on
wheat, Which* was 20 per cent., to 25 per
cent; on corn, which was ten cents 'a I
bushel, to:fiflieen cents a bushel; on oats,
which was rten cents a bushel, also to
fifteen cents ,a bushel. The product of
wheat iv :the United States >in 1891 was
450,000,000 bisdiels, and the amount im
ported nras'S.aiO bushels, while the amount
exported was. snore than 100,000(000 bushels.
Does amy one suppose that we.should have
sent out fto mi*ch and brought ».i so little
if foreign whea : ; had been cheaper than our
own? The'tariff on wheat niiftht be put
up to 609 per cent. without any ether effect
than to incroo.se, the" cost of what little
wheat of a kind not raised at home we im
port from abroeul.
What is truejof wheat is true of nearly
everything tha* the farmer raises. The
truth is that (the farmer cannot be pro
tected so long-as he does not wish to raise"
hothouse bananas and other sue': things
which he has ne-desire to attempt. Mean
while Republican protection increases the
cost of fifty things which the farmer must
have.
MeKlntoy's Bad Goods.
That the Mclfinlcy tariff is giving us
bad goods is booming more and ijrnore
generally recognised by business men. A
prominent firm of packers writes to "The
National Provisioner as follows in regard
i to tin plate:
The tariff is levied, as you know,
vagainst the wetgh-trof the plate. In oonse
.quchcc of this tbe 1 plates that are being
'imported aud used to make cans of are
■dangerously light. 'We buy from one of
the most reputable,firms in Baltimore,
yet we have much .-difficulty in getting
plate iv our cans that nrjll stand up at all. 1
What the effect of all this will be to the
shipping trade, that rely upon canned i
goods mainly on their long voyages, as
well as on the packers who send their ,
goods to foreign countries, it is difficult
now .to determine. Bat certain it is the
quality of tin that is used ; this season ir
canned goods must result in injury to the
whole industry.
Shlloh's Consumption .dure.
This is beyond question the most successful
Cough Medicine we have ever sold, a few doseß
