V few years ago the American^farmer, at least a great many of^them, were made to believe that they^derived no benefit from a protective^tariff ami that free trade would bring^them prosperity. While the Wilson^law is not as bad as its author would^like to have made it.it is bud enough^experience has amply demon-^trated. Instead of securing ^the^markets of the world^ the farmer^has not made any such gain, but on^the contrary has seen his home mar^^ket^his true source of wealth^in-^aded by foreigners and the demand^for his product greatly lessened in^|^lllj and cheapened in price.^Plie figures on the imports of farm^products for the year lst^4, the last^year in w hich the McKinley law was^in operation^until August^are #^^.^^,-^t-M4,5B8. for t he follow ing year, under^the operations of (he Wilson law.^91MfNM,-MM.
