Wamu.ni.ton,Xov. i'T.-Tho new demo^^cratic tariff bill was given out this morn-^las} Its provisions fulfill every expecta^^tion of those who predicted it would be a^measure of radical reform. Iu many re^^spects it i* a surprise, even to the demo^^crats, us it is unprecedented iu many pro^^visions. Tbe free list is of liberal scope,^sullicicnt to satisfy tlie most radical advo^^cates ol reform and the repudiation of tlio^principle of reciprocity is decisive and^emphatic, 'lliustho bill in addition to^tariff reforms will, if passed, necessitate^tlio readjustment of treaties with tlie^South Amuricau countries wliieli enjoy^practical or theoretic reciprocity with the^liuted States. The bounty on sugar,^instead of being repealed at once, will he^repealed by easy graduations, and w ill not^reach full effect till after the, closo of the^present century.

ChairniatiWilson of the committee of^ways and means, has issued a statement^in regard to the tariff bill, the gist of which^is contained iu tho following introductory^paragraphs: Tbedemocratic tnombcrs of the com^^mittee have felt, as no others could feel,^the momentous responsibility resting upon^them, and tho magnitude, difficulty and^delicacy of the duty assigned them of^framing a tariff bill for a nation of 70,u00,-^OOrtof people. They were called on to re^^form a MM labyrinth of a system of class^taxation, the culmination of .'*^ years' con-^ttol of the taxing power, by a few inter^^ests, gathering iuto their train a host of^petty toll gatherers. It was carefully^framed to prevent, as long as possible,^what its author calls any ^monkeying^with the tariff.^ It transferred to the free^list proper and fruitful revenue articles,^where most of the taxes paid by tlic|^coplc^wero received by tho government and^greatly increased the rates on those^articles, as all or most of the taxes on^which were paid by tho people and went^into private coffers. And it was bolstered^aliout by many defenses, cluof among^winch are a swept and garnished treasury^and a swollen and colossal scale of perma^^nent expenditures. Such are the condi^^tions that confronted us at the outset of^out work. The committee have welcomed^inform itinn and counsel from every trust^^worthy source, and while they do not ex^^pect their bill to escape just criticism Iu^all its details, they do present it to the^eo inlry as a result of mouths of patient,^anxious toil, and of honest desire to dis^^charge their duty. Purged of ail taint of^local and personal favoritism or prejudice.^Its main features are two: First, the^adoption wherever it seemed practicable^of ad v :!olcm instead of specitied duties.^Second. freeing from taxes of^those great materials ^ of industry^that lie al the basis of production,^.-sp c...c duties ara objectionable because^thev can bo used to conceal onerously^laig^ and ieetpiusble tax.-.tioii. .,ud be-^cau-e they lead more readily to frauds, as^w eighers and counters at custom houses arecheaper and more easily corrupted^thsu those undor an ad valorem systom.^Moreover, the ad valorem system has^worked well in practice and is essentially^fair. It defends the large free list of raw^materials on the ground that taxes on^production are a double w roug, culminat^^ing on consumers and l.uruug labor by^narrowing the market. They are made^free for the further reason that no other^country can supply them as cheaply as^we can; no competition can in^^terfere with us iu them. And free^^dom from taxation must im^^mensely stimulate the production^of ores, coal, lumber, wool and other^things in certain parts of tho country.^American manufactures have entered^every country and with free raw materials^there is no limit to the growth of our for^^eign trade, with incalculable advantage to^labor. Iu every great hue of manufacture^no can produce enough for home con^^sumption in six to nine mouths and wo^can get rid of our surplus only by export.^Trade cannot be built up so long as^raw materials aru taxed. I lance the for^^mation of trusts to keep down the produc^^tion, to the great del mucin of la! sir. The^statement then points out the various^items of reduction in tho schedule in^^cluding sulphuric acid to the free list^because of its general use; castor oil^from s', to cents per gallon ; linseed oil^from oo to l.'i cents per gallon ; pig load^from I cents to 1 cent per pound, thus re^^ducing tho price of paints. It declares^tho increase of duty on opium to ^1J per^pound by the Mckinley bill simply put the^business into the hands of smugglers on^the Pacific coast. The present bill puts^it where it is thought it can If collected.^The duty on common window glass is re^^duced more than half, which will stimu^^late home production, because p has been^produced under trust conditions. There^is also a marked reduction in plate gla--. Inthe iron and steel sctiedule, free ore^on account of tho discovery of besscmrr^ores in the lake regions and foundry ores^in Alabama will give us supremacy ill^this great line of manufacturing. Tig iron^is reduced to a uniform duty of 22) per^rent; steel rails from $1:4.44 per ton. equal^to 7.^^ per cent, to 2'^ per cent. The residue^of the schedule vanes from to '.It^per cent, beams and girders .'ib per cent.^Tin plates are reduced nearly one half to^40 per cent, which should allow existing^mills to live and flourish. Cheaper grades^oj pocket cutlery S per cent, higher^grades 4S, table cutlery n*t. Copper ores^and pig copper made free. We are ex^^porters of the latter and the duty has^served only to allow the producer to sell^higher to our people than to foreigners.^Nicklo free, lead ore only 15 per cent. Pig^lead ore one cent per pound, silver lead^ores free, unmanufactured lumber freo,^manufacture 1 ^ per cent. Onthe subjo^t of sugar the statement^says : ^Sugar has been a difficult mailer^to deal w ith. K iw sugar is transforroil to^the free list by the MeKinley hill, becauso^nearly all the taxes paid on it wont to the^public treasury. There w as a strong de^^sire among the members of ihe committee^to put an ad valorem duty of 27i |^sr cent,^on it and abolish the bounty at once.^After much consideration it was decided^to reduce to one half the duty on m lined^sugars and repeal the bounty one eighth^each year, leaving raw sugar untouched at^present. Intho tobbacca schedule rates am^sought which would bring the most rev^^enue. Live animals are taxed 20 per cent.;^barley is reduced from S^ cents per bushel^to,'iJ per cent., or about 12 cents; bread-^studs, of w liieh w e are immense exporter ;^free, except to countries w hich put duties^on our like products, in which case it Is^'J^i per cent.; vegetables, fruits, eggs^and liko food products untaxed^for the benefit of working^people: salt iu bulk free; m packagos^covering dutiable ; tariff on spirits double^internal lovcnuu rates, with some, slight^reduction on still wines, null liquors, gin^^ger ale and liko beverages, in tho interest^of increased rovotiu^: for the saino reason^champagne- are reduced to $7 per do/en^quarts against J- in tho MeKinley bill.^Substantial reductions are mado in cotton^manufactures, especially cheap cloths and^prints. Hemp and flax are free; dressed^line hem;^ and flax, one cent and one and^one-half cents respectively; burlaps and^cotton and grain bagging, I ^ per cent:^when ex'mrio.l as covering, free; wool,^free: this takes the stilts from under^woolen manufactures and begets the hope^that they may revive from tho languish^^ing condition in wliu h they have been for^a quarter of a century, and that wo may^get woolen good- at reasonable rales.^Cloths and dry goods are put at l'i per^cent., clothing at 4'.. The rates are^higher than tho committee desired, but^It is deemod temporarily necessary,^l^ cause our manufacturers have so long^been excluded from two-thirds of tlio^wool of the world, that they will have to^learn the art of in tnufacturing with tree^wool. A sliding scale, therefore, is added,^by which the rates in the woolen schedule^are to comedown five points with a lapse^of Ove years. Carpets, an industry in^which we will soon Ijc independent, are^put at ^ per cent for cxminsters, mo-^quettu and w ilton ^^^. Brussels, vv hito and^common grades from M down to -J. Tue^bill provides that the entry shall bo re^^moved from wool on March 1, and re^dured on woolen goods July 1. In ihe^silk schedules the reductions of rales are^smaller than in cotton or woolen fabric.^Sole leather is reduced from lb to % per^com. Leather gloves are classified ac^^cording to material and length, and are^uniformly rated at specific duties which^average not over Si per cent on common^varieties and near 40 per cent^on tine lamb and kid gloves.^Hatters' plush is put on the freo list. Tho^duty on cut diamonds, pearls and other^precious stones Is increased. Work* of^lilt are put back on the free list. All in m-^iifacturcs of iron and steel have a tari'l of^f$ per cent., except cast hollow wale,^coa'iMl. gls/ed or turned.
