platform that was lived up at rt. Louis is
, a demagogical attempt to befog the tariff,
issue, but that makes no difference at all.
Cleveland's tarilf message creaks for
itself, and that is his and his party's plat
form. That message is a studied attack
on the principle of protection. The mes
sage, the Mills bill, the speeches made by
Democratic leaders in the House during
the tariil debate, and Mr. Cleveland's
letter to Tummany. are a continuous
series of assaults on protection; more
than that, they commit tha party to a
fctrictly revenue tarilT as the end and aim
of Democratic policy. A revenue tarilT
leaves protection to take care of itself,
and lays duties on articles that do not
compete with ur industries. It would
get $150, 000,000 from tea, coffee, and
sugar, and open all our manufactures to
unimpeded competition with Kngland
and continental Kurope.

We do not forget that the initiative in
tariff legislation belongs to the House,
and that the prime responsibility for
what is attempted or done in that direc
tion rests upon the Democratic majority
in that body, who have presented the
Mills bill as their scheme of tariff reduc
lion. Merely to resist the enactment of
mat bill would be. as we have suggested,
a sufficient policy for a w inninir cam'
paign. Put the Kepublican Senators do

the Democratic party all along in Its

Mr. Crooks takes a practical view of the
question. He says if the Ibpior evil ran
be abated by high lice nse or hii?h tax he
favors this me thod as the first step toward
the eradication of a preat moral evil. This
