duntul Protection lmvo been worked b,
prosperity and progress.
Thomas Kwing mi id in the Senate o
the United States in 1832:
"Every farmer in Ohio long knew am
all felt the pressure. Year after year tlici
stucks of wheat stood unthreshed, s<
low was it reduced in price in compari
Bon with manufactured articles, that !
eB have known forty bushels of whea
given for a pair of boots; such was tin
state of things in the western countr)
r, prior to und at the time of the revisior:
? of the tariir in 1824."
Henry Wilson (afterwards Viee-l'resi
tC(l dent of the United States) said in a
cut speech in New Hampshire in 1872:
fur. "The Urst mouth 1 worked after I wot
' 21 years of age, I went into the woods,
Vt, drove team, cut mill logs and wood, rost
? in the morning before daylight and
, worked hard until after dark at night,
and I received for it the magnificent sum
of $<J. Knch of those dollars looked u?
large to ine ?us the moon looked at
* night."
| ."On the farm on which I served an
apprenticeship, 1 have seen the best
men who over nutsevthe in irrnss work
ing for from fifty to seventy cents u day,
anil in tho longest days of summer.
Yesterday 1 visited that farm. I asked
y the men who were there what they
. paid men in haying the last summer,
'? and they Haiti from $:! 00 to $2 "?0 per
day. This was paid on the same ground
where men worked forty yours ugo for
from fifty cents to four shillings, and
ft took their pay in farm products, not
1M money. I have seen some of the brightii?l
est women go into tho farm lioupo and
k0 work for from fifty to seventy-five cents
f. a week, milkingthecows, making butter
r* and cheese, washing, spinning and
:e weaving?doing ail kinds of hard work,
I was told yesterday that many young
women were earninjr in the shops a
i dollar a day, and t>ia* tho >o who worked
in houses were getting from $2 60 per
week to $.'> 50."
Mr. Clay, in his speech in the Senate,
declared in sub stance that the seven
years preceding the t a rill' of 1824 "were
marked by widespread dismay and desolation,
and that the seven most prosperous
years which the people had enjoyed
under tho Constitution were those "following
the tariff act of 1824.
For twentv-scvcu years the country
Ima Imnn ntiiiifurrimti'dl v under tlif> nro
tectiye tfystem. During this period, facta
go beyond imagination and the stories
of romance. No other period in the history
of this Government or of all civilization
has been marked by such material
development, increase in national
wealth, business progress and prosperity.
Tho wealth of the country sinco 18(30
luis grown from sixteen to sixty thousand
millions of dollars. This increase is
equal to one-half of the sum added to
the world's wealth during this period.
In 18(30 wealth was $415 00 and in 1887 it
was about ?1,000 per capita. In 18(10
manufactures amounted in value 1,800
millions and in 1887 to 7,000 million
dollars. The Western States alone manufacture
about as much now as the whole
country did in 18(30. Tim trade of the
United States is double that of England
and our commerce now is six times
greater than in 18(30. Our exports in
18(30 were 31(3 millions. In 1887 they
were 71(3 millions. The entire exports of
the United .States up to 18(30 for more
than two hundred years reached nine
billions. Since then they have increased
to fourteen billions. Since 18(30 the
United States, from being tho third producing
power in the world, has become
the lirst. Since 18(30 railroads have increased
from .'10 to loO thousand miles
uud.the cost of transportation of.freight
has been reduced until it is now about
one-nan 01 w 11 ni it jh in j^ugiunu. m
1S07 the United States produced no steel
rails; in 1887, twenty years after, the
steel rail product reached nearly two
million tons, and the price per ton was
reduced from ?105 to $29 during this
_ period. Since I860, under Protection,
many new industries have been established,
among thorn silk, crockery,
~ china and steel rails, which have given
to hundreds of thousands of men, as
I also homes for their families and means
I of education for their children. In 1800
t we manufactured 820 thousand tons of
pig iron; in 1887, six million two hun1
dred and lifty thousand tons. In 1S00
I wo mined 1.0,513,123 tons of coal, and in
\ 1887, 120,140,738 tons. Tho value of
farms has increased from six to ten thousand
millions since 1800, and farm products
from one thousand six hundred to
to three thousand seven hundred millions
per annum. Wages are .'55 per
I cent higher, and tho cost of the necesI
saries of life 20 per cent less than in
I 1800. Since 18(H) moro than nine
millions of foreigners have come to the
I U 1111(1(1 JStUH'H to imu l-llipiuyiiiuiit, uvir
tor wages ami homes. Since 1800 gold
and silver money have increased from
two hundred and fourteen to more than
one thousand millions, and our
money from four hundred and twenty0.
one to five hundred and thirty-nine millions.
The deposits in the banks of the
s United States in 1800 were four hundred
and three millions. The deposits in National
anil State hanks now exceed
fifteen thousand millions. The savings
banks had ^n 1800, one hundred and
k forty-nine millions; they now have one
| thousand two .hundred and thirty-live
millions. The deposits in the Savings
Hanks of New York alone exceed live
hundred millions, or one hundred millions
more than the deposits of the savings
banks of England after four hundred
years. The money in our banks
E to-day is $S00,000 more than is in the
banks of Engjind, Scotland and Wales.
* It is not claimed that all these results
1, are due solely to Protection. Other eau'
ses have helped to contribute to our Nasi
tional progress and prosperity; but I do
..] claim thai Protection has bccu the most
potent agency <n building up and con
<f\ stantly increasing our muiomu wenun,
lv More than this, I claim that if Protection
y is wrong, hurtful to tho business inter15
eats ami prosperity of tho country, ami
a, if our system of raising revenue is what
the PreHident terms it in his message?
, "the vicious, inequitable and illogical
source of unjust taxation"; if u prot&v
1 tive tariff is mediaeval .and antiquated,
ill, as lion. W. L. Wilson says it is,?then
the great increase in wealth, the progrest
and prosperity, which the people nave
enjoyed from 18(10 until now, wouli
^ have been impossible. J?or is a systen:
'S of taxation that even permits'sucl
v growth vit ious, inequitable and illogical
_ lu the face of such results a radiea
jj change in the direction of breaking dowi
it of Protection was not demanded. .

Uc?t This shows that the free list has ii
JJw creased aud the dutiable list decrease
22 percent since 1K47; and i( the Mills
bill bccuiiico a law, on the the basis of
the imports of 1HS7, tho free lint will be
increased 13 per ceut, making 53 per
cent of all imports dutiable, and 47 nor
_ cent free. Just four more sneh adddii
tions to the free list and reductions in
j- duties as the Mills bill makes will end
v all duties, destroy protection and bring
us to absolute free trade. The entire
if expense of tho Government would then
have to bo raised by direct or internal
1 taxes, and if by direct tuxes, then, ncr
cording to the Constitution, they would
j be levied per capita, and not on property.
' This is not all; in addition to this
[ great increase in the free list, according
t to the majority report of the Semite Ki?
nance Committee, the Mills bill, exelut
si ve of sugar, makes a reduction of dui
ties upon all articles named in the bill
of 40.37 percent instead of the seven per
. cent reduction claimed by the friends of
i the bill. This is
J the longest ever taken in the history of
I the Government.
The greatest b!o.v given by the Mills
bill to u single industry, however, is
, against wool.
Of th? 2,400 counties in tho United
States, all but thirty-six produce wool.
, Putting wool on the free list means free
irade 10 farmers in lvhh counties 01 mo
United States out of 2,400. Could anything
he more radical or far-reaching in
the way of free trade? The United
States is the third producing wool country
in the world and wool stands sev- i
unth in value in tin? list of her products, i
Wool has been on the list of protected i
industries since 1810, and was put on <
this list then partly because in the war j
of 1812 the Government not being able j
to get wool from other countries, had to j
pay to clothe her soldiers, $2 00 per :
pound for wool. Andrew Jackson said
this ought not to occur again, and inouu
of his messages mentioned wool, as
necessary to our independence in time I
of war and urged its production and encouragemeut
by levying a duty on for- t
eign wool. In 1883 the taritF on wool .
was reduced, and since then the produc- .
tion has fallen oil eighty-six millions of
pounds ami the number of sheep decreased
more than six millions. The
consequence was that last year we im* k
ported 114,000,000 ponmlsol* wool, valued
at $lo,000,009. Since 1883 our im- ,
ports ol' woolen goods made ubroad have t
increased $12,500,000. All of this in- t
creased wool and woolen products could .
have been raised and made in the .
United States, but for the reduction of .
the duty in 188.'J. Last year we paid
for foreign wool and woolen goods more
than S(W,000,000. What we lost, foreign \
countries gained.
it is estimated at the end of live years t
the United States would not produce a j
pound for each inhabitant, whereas Bix [
pounds, at least, arc required. A nation J
should be able to produce its own food t
and clothing, and the United States arc, y
beyond any country in the world un- 2
less forced by the Democratic party to 1
depend upon other countries. In many I
respects sheep husbandry is the most (
important industry in the United States f
as it. is the most universal. It furnisher <
both food and clothing and woolen cloth- 1
ing is fast becoming a necessity. Putting t
wool on the free list will not only break c
down the woolen industry in the United )
Suites but make meat dearer. We are <
not exempt from the chances of war, and i
should war come anil the wool industry i
he prostrated, the Government could t
not get wool to clothe its soldiers and for /
the use.of the people. In South Amer- 1
ica and Mexico shepherds are generally 1
neons and work for 124 to 25 cents a day. 11
There?are hundreds of millions of acres ^
of laud on which sheep graze free of r
charge. It is estimated that a flock of 1
3,000 sheep can bo raised for less than 1
$100 per anuum. These conditions are 3
true largely as to Australia.
I.. 1 (nnnnrlnlQ in 1
pay in most cases from $23 to $50 fof I
land on which to pasture sheep, and i
more than $1 a day wages to his farm 1
hand, in the face of these conditions i
and competition if wool is put on the 1
free list it will he impossible for Atucri- s
cans to continue sheep husbandry in the i
thickly populated States of the Ifnion. \
The tendency of wages in Europe and <
the United States is toward an equilib- I
ritim. - If the United .States did not '
charge the European manufacturer a j
license in the form of a duty or tax on |
what he brings hero for sale, in time ?
wages in the two countries would become
equal. The tariff hinders, more
than any other cause, wages being the ,
same in the United States and in Eu- ,
rope. The Atlantic Ocean Is, in effect,
only a wide river. Tho time to cross it 1
is being gradually reduced. It takes a 1
little over six days now to bring Euro- (
nean goods to New York, Philadelphia, ,
Baltimore, Uoston and other cities. If (
the duties or taxes on these goods should
be taken off or greatly reduced, purtic- |
ularly on iron, steel rails, glass, clothing, j
carpets and all competing articles made (
here, t hen-the effect would be to make ,
European goods cheaper in the United |
States than American goods. Merchants j
could, in that event, order goods by |
cable from Liverpool and Paris, and in
eight or ten davs have them delivered
and distributed in all the cities along ,
the Atlantic seaboard. It takes now
from six to ten davs to get floods distrib- ,
uted from our factories in the largo ,
cities. Practically there is no dif- ,
ference in time. Freight can be ,
brought from Europo to the Atlantic ,
coast cities in a shorter time and for oneI

and Territories west of tlie Missouri ,
river to the JSnsl. Europe is, in effect, i
at our door, and for freight purposes
much nearer than the Pacific eoast
States and Territories. Abandoning
Protection or largely reducing the tariff
would lead to one of two results. Either
wages on this side would have to be reduced
from one-third to one-half, or to
the level of European wages, so that the
cost of production would be the same, or
our manufacturing establishments large.

to chooso at once between reduced
I wages and little or no employment. This
is the tendency of the Democratic posi,
tion and if followed to its legitimate end,

i wage-earner and manufacturer. There
I is no escape from it. All things being

x- ally, of stimulating tho manufacturing
interests on the sea board oron great water

it. factories situated inland. Tho iuland
factories would have to pay tho freight
from the seaboard on imported raw materials
to their respective localities and
n- in case of a distance of even 500 miles,
:d this, according to the rate of freight,
would amount to from $2 50 to $5 p

turn of n tax or duty on inland nianufu

board or water ways would pay nothin
This would be taxing the inland factorii

The great argument used by the I)ein
acratie party in its assault on Protectioi
is that it prevents the wage-earner frou
jetting the necessaries of life cheapei
that under a low tariff or Free Trade. I
the duty should be taken off of the
ucctssaries of life that are imported intc
the United States and consumed by the
wage-earner, that for a short time might
lessen the price; but taking oil* tho dutj
and letting in foreign goods, would have
the effect to throw a great many wage
earn era out of employment in the United
Suites, rendering it impossible for then:
in that event, to buy the cheap goodi
that are brought? from Europe, at any
price?no matter how cheap.

j- not cusily surrender any of these high
e- privileges, when they properly underre
stand the question, at the behest of the
President, his party and the English
Free Trade press.
jH England is the pronounced Free Trade

' induced to adopt Free Trade has declined
, and is verging on bankruptcy; Ireland

'] Free Trade and adopting Protection.,
L* The tendency of Western civilization is
'* toward Protection. France, Germany,
r Austria, Italy and other countries are
| adopting it. Up to 1880 Bismarck had
1 tried every means in his power to arrest
j the decline in the business, trade and
" commerce of the Germfln people. He
' went to the verge of state socialism to
1 subdue' discontent. After exhausting
all his resources, lie advocated Protection
for Germany and in 1882 ho used
r the following language iu the German
I Parliament:
"The success of the United States in
material development is the most illustrious
of modern times. The American
Nation has not only successfully borne
and suppressed the most gigantic and
expensive war in all history, but immediately
afterward disbanded its army
and found employment for all of its soldiers
and marines, paid oil most of its
debts, giving labor and homes to all the
unemployed of Europe as fast as they
could arrive within its territory, and still
by a system of taxation so indirect as
not to be perceived, much less felt. Because
it is my deliberate judgment
that the prosperity of America is mainly
due to its system of .'protective laws, I
urjje vnuv uitiuhi)> huh iiww juuuuuu
that point where it is necessary to imitutu
the tariir system of the United
! States." Could any
\ ho brought forth to sustain American
i protection to American industries?
Following this, Germany adopted a
system of protection and since that is
becoming prosperous and extending her
markets. Within four years, the number
of her peojile employed in manufuc1
tures increased lit) per cent, amount of
wages paid to workmen 57 per cent, and
1 the.* average of wages 17 percent. Other
" enlightened nations of the world are fol
lowing the example of the United States,
1 and just when this is being done so
' largely throughout the civilized world,
| the President of the United States,
; backed by the Democratic party aud the
' English press, insists that the wise
; thing for us is to admit raw materials
free, reduco our duties, and thereby im'
pair protection.
England has done all she can, by war,
diplomacy and statesmanship, for 100
1 years, to 'force, indrce and persuade the
1 United States to adopt 'free tiade. She
. has, during this time, made constant,
1 persistent and vigorous war on our industries
and sought our trade. What
we are to-day, its a nation ami in our industrial
success, we are. in spite of Kng'
land, and not by her aid. Lord
Hrougbam said, April 0, 1810, in the
[ House of Commons:
"It was well worth while to incur a
' loss upon the first exportation in order,
" by the glut, to stillc in the cradle those

1 The United States should manufacture
1 what their people consume. Tlyj people
of the United States arc the largest
* consumers, in proportion to population,
in the world. It is estimated that an
American consumes three times as much
sis an European. The demand for manufactured
and other articles is constantly
growing. This enormous consumption
of products furnishes employment for a
I great many people. The question is,
[ shall our own people be employed to
' UMBO Wiini. illey conmiuiu, or, uuuuuau h
| trail be made cheaper, shall it be manufactured
abroad, thus giving work and
employment to the workingmen of
! Europe, rather than the workingmen of
America? It would not be thought
' wise in a father with n large family who
| had work to do to hire it done by others,
rather than employ and pay the
5 members of his own family. A family
is but the type of a nation. A nation is
' an aggregation of families. Self-interest
' obliges a family to protect, earo for and
' build up, lirst of all, its own members.
! The great Republic is a large family; it
I lias employment, work and labor to be
] done. It seems its lirst and highest
' duty would be to give to its own people
this work, so that they may have euiploy
men t. The highest and best aim of
tree government, resting on the will of
the people for stability and existence,
should be to see that the people have
i such employment as the busiiK'ss, trade
o and commerce of the country afford. It
. is cheaper and better that a whole family
should be lightly taxed, in order that
one-third of its members lind employ-1
'? incut, than this third should be thrown
'* out of employment and maintained in
L> idleness, that the whole family may get
3 some things cheaper. It is a correct
L'. principle in the ethics of government
a that it is
)' at a tax or duty almost imperceptible,
u than that a part should suffer for want
L, of employment when there is work to be
t, done, by giving it to foreigners. The
i, people of the United States are the most
it nappy, contented, progressive and prosie
perous of any on the globe. Why then
i- disturb, change or break down tho sysiv
tein of Protection that has so largely
) aided in bringing about these results,

is The United States imported in 1887,
1, in round numbers, GS3 millions of goods
i. and products from other countries, 233
;o millions of which were free and 4.*>0 miliy
lions paid duty. Of nearly all the artiie
cles that paid a duty the United States
could have manufactured most of them,
n, Under what the President styles a
te "vicious, inequitable and illogical" tariff,
re last year wo imported 50 millions worth
e- ol iron and steel. Every pound of this
e, iron and steel could have been made in

men. The Milts bill reduces thedut;
on the above named articles and then

All of this tin plate could have beei

nished to a grtya many people. In 1887
there was over sixteen million dollars
worth of tin plate imported from Kng
land. The amount paid to manuiactim
the same, to the Jiritish wage-earner
was nine millions of dollars. If the duty
should be raised two and teu-huudredtlu
of a cent, we could manufacture all thai
is needed in the United Slates# The
Mills bill puts tin-plate on the free list.
It is not generally known that tin plate
is 90 per cent iron. In 1887, we import*
' ed 'Joo,000 tons of tin plate. It is curious
I ami interesting to know what enters
into the manufacture of this large quantity.
To make this much tin plate, ac'cording
to Samuel J. Kandall, takes
870,000 tons of iron ore, J{00,000 tons of
limestone, 1,800,000 tons of coal and
coke, .'{00,000 tons of pig iron,
5,000,000 pounds of lead, 2.3,000,000
pounds of tin, 12,000,000 pounds of fallow
and oil, .'?,000,000 pounds of sulphuric
acid and 12,000,000 feet of
lumber. The United .States produces all
these items, except the tin. why should
we not import this tin direct as England
largely does, and then manufacture tin;
tin plate, using the other articles, every
one of which wo produce. To have
manufactured these 2.V?,000 tons of tin
plate would have involved an outlay for
plant of about thirty millions capital and
would have furnished employment to
24,000 workingtnen. who would have received
$12,000,000 in wages. It is estimated
that within two years after the
establishment of such plant the price ot
tin plate would bo reduced iu this country
to what we now pay Kugland for it.
Experience has shown that competition
in the Uuited States is the safest and
best means of reducing prices of manufactured
products. It liaj also shown
that wherever by reduction of duties or
placing an article on the free list ius
manufacture has been stopped iu the
United States and we had to depend for
the article on importations, the price lias
invariably increased, so that putting articles
on the free list does not insure that
they will be cheaper to the consumer
in the long run.
The contention of the Democratic
party is that U wo reduce duties, or nave
free trade, we could enlarge our markets,
by sending our products abroad in competition
with those from othercountries.
This is not true iu fact. Kngland buys
from us now only what sho cannot get
elsewhere. If we should allow England
to enter our market with her cheap
goods, she would buy nothing in return
more than at present. We could not
sell to Germany, France or Austria, because
they are protected countries. In
the United .States the people consume
about 90 per cent of their agricultural
products and about 92 per cent of their
manufactured products. This shows
how important the home market is,
when compared with the foreign market.
The Republican party came into existence
mainly on the proposition that
slavery should not exist in this country,
and that labor should be elevated, made
respectable and dignified everywhere.
It was willing to risk its appealto "the confidence
of the people upon this issue.
The Republican party, iu its nims and
purposes, favors the elevation of tho
people. It was willing to give the slave
liberty, because it was right and because
it helped the wage-earner generally in
his eliorts to keep up the rate of wages.
As lonjj us slavery existed in the South,
wages in tho whole country were constantly
menaced. The Nation is indebted
to the Republican party for the abolition
of slavery, which, more than anything
else, helped the cause of labor iu
the United .States.
The next great step in the line of progress
and the interest of the workingman
is industrial freedom everywhere. The
country and the workingmen must look
to the Republican party to accomplish
this. Ano ucpuuucan party in woncing
to tliis end, advocates education gorierally,
but more particularly in the South;
because upon this depends the ability of
the people to Hud employment and better
wages. If wages remain low in one
section, this wiU'operate to reduce theiu
generally. The past record and present
touching labor, authorizes the belief that
the interests of the workingtneii are
safest in its keeping.
In ourgovcrnment man should bo the
central, important and commanding fuetor.
Nothing should stand in the way
of his progress and certain advancement.
Natural wealth, material development
and business prosperity all go for naught
and weigh in tho balance as nothing,
unless thereby man and tho whole body
of the pooplo are elevated and madebetter,
physically and morally. Tho accumulation
of wealth generally, in which all
, the people share, ami which elevates
[ man to higher plant's, should be encouraged.
The great problem of our civilizatiou
is how to better distribute
wealth, to devise some way or means
by which tho people should more largely
share in tho wealth they create. Oue
of tho most practical methods found
thus far for tho better distribution ol
wealth in the United States is through
the chanuels of higher wages. Everything
should be bent in tho direction 01
maintaining and increasing wages ami
allowing the wage-earner to get more ol
what ho produces. Thus fur, Protection
has contributed to this end. Lowering
wages in order to create larger market:
and insure cheaper products?or for an)
purpose?is a snare and delusion in i
free government. No good results fol
low?but tho degrcdation of man is cor
tain. Higher wages means larger ability
to purchase, aud larger ability to pur
chase means increased consumption
and increased consumption creates tic

The Government requires a certaii
sum, say about $100,000,000 per annun
to pay current expenses. The mos
practical and least burdensome way o
raising this amount lias been by levyinj
duties on foreign goods. Why shouh
not the foreigner who comes here to sel
bis goods and do business iu competitioi
with our own people be charged a tax o
license for doing so? If not taxed, h
enjoys a great advantage with his chea
goods over the American producer. Ou
Government not only taxes its own citi

tain contingencies can call upon thoi
for their lives and property. It is fail
then, that the foreigner, who owes n
allegiance to this Government, who car

and divided with other peonies,
; without something in return?without
even asking that the}' help pay the or1

' is what tho Democratic party asks us to

Mas the business man or the wageearner
of the country demanded the
breaking down of Protection? Both
parties agree that taxes should be reduced.
The Republican party insists that
it should be done, but not* by iuiparing
Protection. The Democratic party and
the President are willing to sacritice Protection,
when it is not necessary, in
order to reduce taxes. This movement
on tho part of the President and the
Democratic party is not only a wide departure
from the faith of the founders
of the Government and tho ancient
Democratic party, but in effect is a revolution
or a change in a system that has
existed from the beginning of the Government,
and particularly in its Protection
features, since 1801. This movement
did not origiuate with the people,
with the wage-earners, manufacturers,
merchants and business men of the country.
They have held no conventions,
complaining that the tax on foreign
goods is onerous and burdensome. This
cry against Protection is an un-American
doctrine. It had its birth in England,
our commercial rival, from selfish
purposes and is advocated and fostered
at homo largely by doctrinaires, writers
of books, theorists and many Democratic
politicians. These people generally
want cheap products. In the change
they ask for they have nothing to lose.
They are not producers; they do not
depend on wages for a living; they have
no money invested in factories, mills,
plauts or railroads, that may be lost by
the change they advocate. All great and
successful revolutions, or movements
begin with the people. This assault on
American industries, this movement in
favor of cheap foreign products and
cheap foreign labor, cannot last long,
because it did not originate and begin
with the people. It has not for its objects
and purposes to put down some
great wrong or to take some great step

This is cold-blooded Free Trade and to

The Republican party has been the j
best friend the South ever had in the |
past, and will be in the future. It saved I
the Union for both the North and the I
South, and in addition gave the South
free labor, which the North enjoyed.
Under free labor the South has moved j
forward in trade, commerce, agriculture
aud manufacturing as never .before in
her history. The Republican party now
oilers to the South, through protection,
education and the things that make for
peace and progress, the openiug of her
mines, establishment of mills and factories

Manufactures in the'SoutU:are in their

behind accumulated wealth, established
plants and enjoying skilled labor,
can better afford the reduction of duties

the future. Tho question is, what if
best to be done now? Clear vision, ?
calm and unclouded judgment, should

Every man in this audience, every good
citizen iu uiu oiaio wjiuuj iu wetter dim
condition and help his family, lit
wants development and progress to go
on, more coal and iron ore mines opened,
manufactories of all kinds built, niori
capital invested, more miles of railroad,
land values increased and a market for
the same. All this will come through
protection, but will bo retarded and
hindered by n low tariff and putting raw
materials on the free list.
