The present campaign all over the country has been fought out on the fundamental principles upon which the two now dominant parties were founded. There have been minor issues in some of the states, but the chief issue everywhere has been the tariff question. The repub lican party in this campaign is stand ing on its record of achievement. It is standing for the continuance of the protective tariff under which this coun try has advanced to its present posi tion as a world power and under which the American people have enjoyed a state of prosperity that has not been reached in any other country on the globe. As ex-President Roosevelt well ex pressed it in his speech at Davenport, "the republican party is unanimous in its belief in a protective tariff, high enough to cover the difference between the cost of production here and abroad and high enough to cover the differ ence in the standard of living between the workingmen of America and those abroad." This has been the policy of the republican party since it wa3 founded and through the workings of this policy during republican adminis trations the country has enjoyed its greatest prosperity. Attempts to reverse this policy by the enactment of a free trade tariff law, or a tariff for revenue only, have been disastrous. American history brings this forcefully to the attention. In previous years the democrats have gone before the people on a low tariff issue, and their success always has brought disaster in its wake, disaster to the employer and employe, and to the farmer. The Courier sets forth in the paragraphs following a brief review of this country's history as it has been affected by tariff legislation. This is brought out, not as a political argu ment, but as a plain presentation of facts for thinking people. It is an ap peal to the common sense of the peo ple, and not to their political preju dice.- Same Old Story. Andrew Jackson was first "elected president in 1828, immediately follow ing the enactment of a protective tar iff law. This tariff law remained in force only five years, but you can judge of the beneficial effects thereof from a single paragraph contained in the message of President Jackson submit ted in December, 1832. He says: v.. "Our country presents on all sides marks of prosperity and happiness un equaled perhaps in any portion of the world." The next year, however, the author of this indorsement signed a tariff act which provided for a biennial reduc tion of one-tenth of all duties in excess of twenty per cent so as to reduce the xate on articles to twenty p§r cent at the expiration of ten years. Within six years from the passage of this law public revenues had fallen off twenty-five per cent the govern ment was again borrowing money. Then it was that the country entered upon the worst panic period ever ex perienced in the memory of any man now living. This was the famous panic of 1837, which continued with increas ing intensity until counteracted shortly after the passage of the protective tar iff of 1842, following the victory of the whig party. Houses $2 Each If any young people doubt the severity of that panic, go to your libra ry and get Colton's "Life of Henry Clay. It says: "In Ohio, with all her abundance, it was hard to get money to pay taxes. The sheriff of Muskingum county, as stated in the Guernsey Times, in the summer of 1842, sold at auction ten hogs at 6% cents each two horses at $2 each and two cows at $1 each. In Pike county, Missouri, as stated by the Hannibal Journal, the sheriff sold three horses at $1.50 each one large ox at 12% cents five cows, two-steers and one calf, the lot at $3.25 twenty sheep at 13% cents each and twenty-four hogs, the lot at 25 cents." The protective tariff law passed by the whig party in 1842 remained in force four years and the best evidence of its beneficial effect is to quote from the message of President Polk submit ted to congress In 1845: "Labor in all its branches is receiv ing ample reward, while education, sci ence and the arts are rapidly enlarging the means of social happiness. The progress of our country in her career of greatness, not only in the vast ex tension of her territorial limits and in the rapid increase of her population, but in resources and wealth and in the happy condition of ouf people, is with out an example in the history of na tions." It seems, however, that the people were even less able to bear continued prosperity then than now, for the democratic party was successful in 1844, electing James K. Polk of Ten nessee, and George M. Dallas of Penn sylvania. The platform was equivocal, and campaign speeches more so. In Pennsylvania and perhaps some other states the cry was, "Polk, Dallas and the tariff of '42." In other states where protection was suposped to be unpop ular, it was "Polk, Dallas and free trade." The democratic party secured at that election complete control, and immediately proceeded to materially lower the tariff by the enactment of what is known as the Walker bill, which was passed in 1846. The senate A 1 If was about equally divided, and in that body the debate became most interest ing. Daniel Webster spoke against the bill for three days, and that you may understand how that great statesman viewed the effect of a protective tariff upon labor, we quote from his speech: "And, sir, take this great truth place it on the title-page of every book of political economy intended for the use of the United States put it in every farmer's almanac let it be the heading of the column of every me chanic's magazine proclaim it every where and make it a proverb, that where there is wprk for the hands of men, there will be work for their teeth. Where there is employment, there will be bread. Employment feeds and clothes and instructs. Employment gives health, sobriety and morals. Con stant employment and well-paid labor produce, in a country like ours, gen eral prosperity, content and cheerful ness." The democratic party was not a unit in its favor. Senator John M. Niles of Connecticut, a democrat, made an im portant speech, which would be appli cable now as it was applicable then. It had been said by those who spoke in favor of the bill that a protective tariff created monopoly and enabled those benefited thereby to demand ex tortionate prices. In other words, the same argument was used against the tariff then as is used against the tar iff now. In Senator Niles's speech against his party's determination to interfere with the then prosperous condition of the country^by lowering the tariff, he used this language: "Why disturb the business and pur suits of the people? Why unnecessarily agitate and alarm the country? I have again and again asked for the reasons for passing this bill at this time, and could get no response, no reason. We now have ne, and what is it? Why, to curtail the profits of the large and wealthy manufacturers. But, sir, the fact is assumed there is no evidence as to those large rofits. But, admitting it to be so, will not competi tion correct the evils Will it not bring down these enormous values? With an enterprising people like ours will there not be enough to rush into any busi ness which, affords such enormous profits? But is not this something new? It is not a strange reason? Can any example be found in the history of the world of a legislature passing laws to arrest the prosperity of the country or to reduce the profits of any particu lar class of citizens in a pursuit open to all? Certainly, sir, this must be the great measure of the age when we con sider the great good it is to effect when it is to stop individuals from get ting rich too fast, and to check the prosperity of the country. "The senator says it will not affect the laborers, the mechanics, nor the small manufacturers. Now, how does he know this? I tell him he is mistaken, those are the very men on whom the blow will fall. You may diminish the profits of the large establish ments some, but you cannot crush them. They can stand by warding off the blow and transfer ring the sacrifice to others. They have hundreds and some thousands of la borers in their employ, and they will save themselves by reducing the wages of those in their employ. The blow then falls directly upon the laborers. "But how is it with the mechanics and small manufacturers? Those who do their own work and perhaps employ a few apprentices? They must sustain the sacrifices themselves. They will not be able to sustain a competition with the large establishments. But why is this experiment to be tried? To see how much reduction labor will bear? Is it to carry out a theory Is it to test the cold, heartless, miserable theory of free trade?" And now comes the interesting part of the controversy as it relates to North Carolina. Rather than vote for a bill that would close the New England fac tories which consumed cotton and fur nished employment for labor in its conversion into fabrics with which to clothe American people, Senator Wil liam H. Haywood of this state resigned his seat and retired to private life. He did not see his way clear to vote against his party, and he would not vote for what he believed to be a vic ious bill. In Senator Haywood's address to the people of his state, while describ ing the effect of tariff legislation of the pending character, he used this lan guage: "Infant factories are destroyed by the hand of legislation, and the older and more mature establishments are compelled to diminish their operations forthwith and consequently discharge a number of their laborers and reduce the wages of all. The laborers suffer more than the owners because they are less able to bear it. The sudden loss of work will be to many of them and their families a loss of food and raiment and that for which the lawmaker is commanded to pray—his daily bread— he thus rudely takes by law from the workingman of his country." The resignation of Senator Hay wood left the opponents of the bill in control in the senate, which would have defeated the measure had not Senator Spencer Jarnigan of Tennes see deemed himself bound by a resolu tion of the legislature of his state to vote against his convictions and for the bill. The friends of free trade and tariff for revenue only have always cited conditions following the enactment of the Walker bill, the law of 1846, in proof of their position that good times are possible with low tariff laws in force. The Mexican war, the discovery of gold in California and the Crimean war delayed ruin longer than usual *,v- 11 ~±3 'k l" (If hI'i 4 1 it RJI spv^ UTTUBCWA OUUBIiB after such reduction in the tariff, but some conception of Its ultimate effect can be gleaned from the fact that in little more than a decade revenues had fallen so far below expenditures that the government was again forced to borrow money as It did during the pre ceding period of democratic suprem acy. Its effect upon labor is graphically expressed in an address by unemployed men made to the mayor of New York city on January 6, 1855. Listen tq their cry: "We do not come as beggars, but we ask what wejdeem right. We ask not alms, but work. We don't want a little soup now and casjoff clothing tomor row. But we do want worfc and the means of making an honest livelihood. The condition of the working classes is most piteous. They want bread. Is there not enough in the city? They want clothes. Is thene none made now adays?" These are, in effect, the same words used by the spokesmen for the commit tee of unemployed that appealed for work in Otttumwa in 1894, during the last democratic administration, Other illustrations were used in this historical sketch to show the deplor able conditions then existing. The New York Tribune told of the thousands that were being clothed and fed at pub lic expense during this period when the wheels of the country were idle, This matter is brought to the atten tion, not as a political argument, but as a plain, business proposition that should make a direct appeal to the common sense of every citizen. The history of American politics shows that low tariff has brought disaster when ever it has been tried. Conditions one decade are no different than con ditions in another decade in this re gard. When the markets are thrown open and the American worker is thrown into competition with the pau per labor of Europe, the American worker suffers. In the present campaign the republi can party is standing on its record of achievement under the protective tariff policy. The democrats have made their campaign on the low tariff issue, re dies: ed in the past. gardless of the disaster that has fol lowed in the w$ke of such legislation "Democracy in the past eight years," says the Peoria Herald-Transcript," "has made a brave and plucky fight against railroad regulation, against the pure food law, ag&inst conserva tion, against the postal savings act, against the employers' liability bill, and against the tariff commission clause. It has gone forth and has fought every progressive bit, of legis lation enacted by the republican party, and has fought it in the hope of being able to discredit the past three administrations and t.o step into pover over the ruins of popular policies. In other words, democracy in the past few years, as always be fore, has been ready to make «.ue country pay the price of ltB own suc cess, and has amply demonstrated that the first consideration of demo cratic statesmanship is the good of the democratic party."
