Manufacturers Send Warning to
FEAR OF TARIFF TINKERING
Capital and Labor Seriously Concerned
Over Agitation of "Iowa Idea" of
Revision In the Stronghold of Pro

Philadelphia. Oct. 8.
A committee of manufacturers of this
elty has started a movement to Impress
upon the citizens of Pennsylvania their
direct and vital Interest in the main
tenance of the protective tnriff policy
of the national government
Following up the formal action taken
nt a recent meeting of the Manufac
turers' club, when vigorous resolu
tions were adopted In opposition to
any "tinkering with the tariff," Influ
ential men. prominently Identified
with the industrial interests of this
state, have inaugurated an educational
agitation to awaken the voters of
Pennsylvania to the danger confront
ing them from the development of
sentiment, in the west and elsewhere,
In favor of a revision of the tariff.
The assistance of Chairman Wesley
R. Andrews and his colleagues ot the
Republican State committee, has been
sought to further the campaign for a
"stand pnt" policy on the tariff issue.
Manufacturers Are Alarmed.
The manufacturers admit that they
are concerned over the persistence of
the tariff revisionists, and they look
to Pennsylvania Republicans to come
to the front, as they have done In the
past, and emphasize their continued
fealty to the principles of a protective
The tariff revisionists have been
sending tons of literature into Penn
sylvania for the purpose of breaking
the lines of the protective tariff Re
publicans, and they have been bank
ing upon cutting down the vote of tho
Republican state ticket at the coming
flection and thus weaken the voice ot
the state in the councils of the Repub
lican party of the nation.
The enemies of protection are mak
ing a great play to have delegates
elected to the coming Republican Na
tional convention who will favor tha
insertion of a plank in the platform
calling for a revision of the tariff.
The manufacturers who have started
In to combat this proposition realize
the gravity of the situation and look
to Pennsylvania to block the game of
Chairman Andrews' Call to Action.
After a conference with some of the
leading manufacturers Interested In
tha movement, which means so much
to the industrial and business Inter

"Pennsylvania's industries are en
dangered by the agitation for a revi
sion of the tariff, and none can appr
ciate what I say better than those who
have their capital invested and who
depend upon the protective tariff to
shield them from ruinous competition
from the products of the poorly paid
labor of foreign countries.
"There must be no tinkering with
the tariff, either before or after tho
presidential election, and Republicans
of Pennsylvania must be alive to the
situation. If any move shall be made
to change existing tariff schedules.,
even in the slightest degree, It will in
augurate a period of doubt and uncer
tainty which would be reflected in the
utter demoralization of Pennsylvania's
manufacturing interests, and there
could be but one result, a condition
that would bear heavily upon the
farmers and wage workers of our com
monwealth, and seriously embarrass
the capital employed in vast fields of

Judgment, there is not the remotest
chance if Republicans perform their
full measure of duty, the shout would
go up all over the land that the Repub

"The consequence of such a state of
affairs would be Illustrated by a cessa

brunt of the disaster.

Four Men Killed and 20 Fatally In

estimated at $100,000.
The condition of the 30 men Injured
Is pitiable. The features of a major

The hot metal was showerej over
them, causing horrible injuries and
the physicians, attending them said
that at least 20 would die.
The explosion was caused by the
upsetting of a metal pot In the cupola
which contained 5,000 pounds of mol
ten metal ready for casting. A span
In the pot broke, allowing the liquid
iron to spill over the wet sand. An
explosion followed so quickly that
none of the workmen In the building
had a chane; to escape. Streams of
the burning ntetal poured out on the
workmen, some of whom were en
gulfed and literally cooked. Twenty
men near the cupola had every shred
of clothing blown off by the force of
the explosion. Many wehe burled un
der the wreckage and were not res
cued for an hour after the catastrophe.
Buildings In the city, from the force
of the explosion, shivered as If shak
en by an earthquake and people rush
ed from their homes, panic-stricken.
When flames shot from the burning
works, fully 10,000 people rushed to
the scene, blocking streets and Inter
fering with fire companies and ambu
lances. The car-wheel plant was finished
last year at a cost of $200,000. The
wrecked cupola alone cost $30,000.

worth while to hold will be taken to
