Crash Monopolies by Admitting I ecessities and Raw Ma terials Free. Arguments in Condensed Form that Show Where the Tariff y Touches the Poor Man. IN A NI T SltEl.r 1789. Abolition of all inter-State tariffs and reduction of State tariffs on foreign goods, followed by Iapid increase of prosperity. 1RO8. Absolute prohibition of all im Sprtations, followed by universal disaster. 1809. Ilepesl of prohibition, followed by renewal of prospertvy. 181s. The tariff doubled, and all im. pºortations stopped by the war. I(eault, hard times over the whole country; general suspensions of bankN, anl such suffering in New I'ngland that secession was threatened. 1816. A I'ro:ecti.e tariff adopted--in sbone things hlgher than that of 14i.', although in some things lower. This aas the first tariff which was framed all through Upon the principle of protection. She protectionists themselves al ways say that it was followed by great depression of trade. 1818. ,he tari f made still more protec tive; and the prote tionistsalways refer to the year 18L19 as one of great disaster. 1821. A higher ta-iff,followed by great depression in the protected man ufactures, and certainly wit'out one cent of increase in wages. 1828. A very high protective tariff, im mediately followed by hard times in 1829, and low wages so long as this tariff existed. t1132. No "free trade" at all; but a slight reduction of the tariff, fol lowed Iy improvement in business. 1833. A gradual reduction of the tariff, leaving it still so h:gh that an enormous surplus accumulated in the Treasury, which was distrib uted among the St:ates in 11;7. This distribution was immediately followed by the famous panic of ls;i;, which was the direct result of wild land speculation all over the country, brought about largely by the surplus. 1842. Protective tarif restored, fol'owed by one year (184:;) of the greatest stagnation of business ever Known; while during the whole existence of this tariff, farm wages were cut down about one-half from what they had been even after the panic of 1837, and wheat, corn and cot. ton sold at prices disastrous to s farmers and planters. tood times , and fat profits for fron, cotton and f woolen mill owners; bad times for c every one else. t 1846. The tariff cut down by almost c one-third to one-half. l:esult, an immense increase in commerce a and shipping, a r.pid increa-e t in manufactures, unprecedented prosperity in agriculture, and the e most ra,id advance in wages ever ; known in the hi,tory of the coun- b try before or since. li 1'.7. Even under the low tariff of 1846, the revenue had become excessive 1 and a surplus accumulated. Ina order to get rid of this surplus, b the tariff was reduced in .July; b but in teiptember, before the new c tariff could have the least effect, " the short panic of l 57; occurred tl as the result of another wild land i speculation, combined patially with the failure of crops. IBy "i. i, however, almost the whole effect t of the panic had passed away. and fi in 1'u5 and 11i61, agriculture, o commerce, and manufactures were f all more prosperousthan they ever i had been before. I 181. A protective tariff constantiy in- as creasing until 17if. Accordingai to protectionist log'c, the reslit ft was our terrible i ivl War, b- j~ cause this, as a matter of fact, of immediately followed the new a tariff. For more than a yeir af- eI ter the adopt on of this protective fe tariff the business of the country w was in a fearfully depressed con- a dition. in 1864. Tariff raised fifty I er cent. Man- fa facturers made fortunes for three in years. Wages, in gold, lower di than ever, in 1367. ireat increase in tariff on wool. di Result, immedi.,te slaughter of tu 41C,t'00 sheep, reduction of wool hi product, and ruin of many woolen or ctories. The years 18i;. Is8i o0 sad 1139 were periods of great th depresdon is business, and eape a cally hIl aamnfactures. In I -sl t the protectionias themselves de- fi clared that there were more un- hi employed workmen than had ever ot been kn.wu before. ta 187. Slight reduction in the tariff and ian eoisderable reduction in tax.a- t tion generally. As a result lIusi. 4 n improved considerably. But, hi the tarif being still maintained in of all its protective features, the u great piaac of 18;3 ensued, which of was far worse than the panic of he 1867, and which lasted for more tham Ie times as long a period. , From e~pember, lb;', until wi Jaeuary. 1S1t the busniens of the o esunby was more depressed, ad ,,, more labomre were driven out of 1 em oyent than in any previous i arsed of the country's his- c toy. So far from thebe bain w 'tweaty-seven years of ty urder the lst protective tarif hally half of that time rhas been a pereodof extraordnary businessm prsio spmally marked by e falln wagel ad the wholesale . isus s. e iIeh.l tlb ease in I3I, 1867, 136t*, Isee. s 1ar6, 1674, 1878, 1874, 1877 sad 136 P tme d viaedo but nal art Imeease, Ia tasif.

Does the tariff tax take anything out of the pocke:s of the wage earner: No ta'-gatherer ever comes to his house with a bill To. tari;T taxes and demands a settlement Nothing is heard about it ifTs the year rounol. There is nothing on the on surface to indica'e th it the day laborer, pid the clerk, the mechanic, the car-driver, the co:e hnmn, the cook, the nurse or the im- Iewboy ever contribute anything sal toward the income of the government or the extra protts of the manufacturing red (apitalist. lnlt they do, ncertheless. For every $1 th llt goecs to the govern i- sn ent $*, go s to the manuf.,c:urer as ar. bounty. T'hi tax was collected when the ole per-ons named bought what they have of in their houses or on their backs. in one ew man's working suit of clothes costing $7 w as the bounty to the manufacturer was i $. 2; ; one goo l suit costing $20, bounty in 6.18: ove'coat costing s13, bounty of >i4.`'5; two flannel shirts. $1.:0, bounty ags :4 cents; two flannel drawers, $1.51, riff bounty 6li cents; six wool sacks, $2, gh bounty s;i cents; one wool hat, $3, SIbounty $1.2'." one wool cap, $1, bounty a 4: crents; one pair suspenders, 50 cents, I by bountv it cent-; one pair shoes, $:.5, I bounty ;T cents; one pair wool gloves, c S cents, bounty 21 cents: rubber cost, ys :t.3., bounty Ns cents; umbrella, of s1, bounty :11 cents; three linen h:nnlkerchicf-, $', bounty 2' at ents; one silk tie. 0 cents, bounty i- 17 cents; one pocket knife, $1.2., tIt bounty 42 cents; ra'or, $1.23, bounty 42 cents: >havinc brush. :.:r cents, bounty - 9 cents: four cotton shirts, $:, bounty 7es 7 cents: two pair cotton drawers. $1, aU bounty 31 cents: one wool scarf, 5') cents, bounty "21 cents. Any laboring a man or other person having a small in come is able to judge whether he is in a ass position to make a present to anybody f, of the bounty he pays on each of thei an auticles here mentioned. If he is a sin in gle man perhaps he can spare the sums ib- mentioned and is willing to do so. But if he has use for the money, amounting f1 on th se articles- alone to 1t27.20 a year, of he has a right to 'ote at the polls to Ult keep it in his pocket. Put in life insur er an:e or in the savings bank, $23.29 a ly year may provide very nic-ely for a rainy day. Put if he is a married man with a ed family, he will find the tariff tax taking tst the following sum - also out of his pocket n; to swell the suiplus at Washington, or ce to add to the ,rofits of the manufac. ut turer: Three calico dresses for wife, cost a $2.25, bounty .0o cents: three aprons 50 io cents, bounty tto eats; two woollen tt d-esses, lu;., bounty *,;.t)H; two hal coral to skirts, $:t, bounty $1.10: two cotton es skirts $1.50, bounty 21 cents; two suits d flannels, $:.; blounty $1.201; two suits ar cotton underwear, $?, , ounty 5S cents; three pair cotton hose, $1, bounty 2:' t cents; wo:,len cloak, $12, bounty $L.!d; i shawl, $:;, bounty $1.79; hood, $1.25, c bounty .4 cents: straw bonnet,$l, boun - ty 28: cents; two pair shoes, $4, bounty ht) cents; rubbers, si, cents, bounty 10 1e cents; parasol, $2, bounty 41o cents; veil, or 70 cents, bounty 21 cents: fiveyards rib s bon", .o cents, bounut 17 cents; three linen collars., 0 cents, bounty 12 cents; i three lairs lirten cuffs, 6;0 cents. bounty e 14 cents; three handkerchiefs, 75 cents, in bounty 20 cents: liar-k comb, 2') cents. s4 bounty 7 cents; tooth brush, :35 cents, ! bounty 9 (ents: pair woolen mits, S) W cents, bounty 21 cents: ptir gloves, , $1.25, bounty 47 cents. On an expendi d ture of $,;l.: ' in settlement of the wife's d store bill the straggling.citizen has thus Y paid $"21.;;in tariff taxes, about one. * fifth of which went into the government 1 t treasury and the other four-fifths to soms d far-off manufa.:turing capitalist. Part 5 of this tax the Ioor in-in will be relieved ' from--a small part, it is true-if the I tr Mills bill becomes a law; but much the larger part he will always have to hear, a- as it is the setted policy of our govern- - g ment to obtain the most of its revenue itfrom tariff tares. tStill he will not ob ject if the Mills bill gets h;m a diseount of from 7 to IP jier cett. off has wife's r and his own store hill. If the wage earner has one daughter to clothe, he will e feel additional interest in the tariff, as at ( 7 will make her store bill *-i4.un, or 30.15 - more than it would be without the exist ing high tariff. If there is a boy in the - family to buy for, his store bll will be t a increased about $18.1! on atotal eopen r ditare of $54.60. With a family consist. a ag of wife and two children it is expe. Sdient to keep house. This is the oppor Stu-ity of the tariff lord. To furnish the I kitchen $t45.t,1 cents will have to be paid c a out, of which sum $29. 4 is tariff tax. c 1 on the cook stove alone, costing $18.0!', e t there is a tariff tax of .12; on iron pans, t a tax of $2.4M; on di'hes costing sto. a I tax of $5..5S. Passing to household e - furniture. the mechanic, in furni-hing his dwelling, will find that in buying r one heating store at $15 he is paying a r tar of $4.es; on 50 yards of carpet cost- t I ing $40, a tax of $10; on three sets of i bedroom Iurniture costing $7;, a tar of p $19.4'. If hle spends $2 ;u.i0 to furnish his rooms, he will have paid a tariff tax ti of $17.6 t. In the coarse of a year he v will spend some $l0 at the grocer's, $20 a of which will be tarif tribute. But the y housekeepr's wants are as numerous as e th holes in a cornmeal sifter. lte will want a htchet. costing $1, on which he r will ray a tariff tax of :i; cents: a file o costing 25 cents, on which he pays to o Sentattx; a lU.ket, cstino t$1, on which h the tar is o) cents: a grindstone, cost- h lag *', on whi h the tax amounts to 0 4 cents: a spade, aosting 50 crnts. on . te which the tar is 15 cents. If he should at buy 20 pounds of dih his tax would be al 3 cents. These are a few of thethings the householder buys, and on all be is taxued. His ent even is higher by me soa of the tarifT, the tarle has e lhanced the cost of thematerlals of whbdc has hou. was built Anybody can see that a reduction of tariff duties as do- h sirable.

The e- t tire duty ia Waiugtoa's time was but ti ISpr et., ad wm the esmmtry ws a uste kwas persea. o ~Alcii ~ TI is The I'ro!esed Embargo on Trade. 1 ve Th" tariff plank in the Republican e- platform is so monstrous, so utterly un patriotic and unreasonable and so dire tly on menacing to the trade ani prosper ty of ret the country that men have hardly yet ro- realized the fact that a national conven t- tion has dieliberately propo.,sed such a thing. It seems incredlille and it takes time for the mund to grasp the fact that the incred Ile is truc. The IproPlsal is to suppress the com tnerce of the I nited States with all for or eigu nations, to lay am embargoon trade in a time of profound pcaice. ti It is proposed to do this, not by way ut of cutting oft our noses to spite our faces. as was the cases when the celebrated Sml arg-, of 1~o7 was la'd, to the utter a prostration of all our indulstriec. but -im it ply to prescr.t any redoltion of the tasres he now laid iupon the common people for r, the benefit of a eliilue of monopolists r, who have secured control of the nma-hin le ery of a political party anti whoi seek to use that m-achinery for their own enrich or mtent at the expense of evervybody else. g It is not the Iprotection of American S- industry that is so'mwzht. It is not the ' rinciple of prote:.tion even, that is in as volved. It is a policy of dclibera'e he atd de-igned de.truction of American e trade in the interest and at the behest of o a5 ring of trusts and monopl;ces. S I et us see pr cie'y what the platicrm s sets forth as the puirpo-e and policy of ty the Ilepublican party under its new ty leadership. We have tax laws wh'ch ty produce more revenue than the govern '* ment needs. The taxes are of two kit.ds, 2, namely, internal revenue taxes on, 3, whisky, tobacco. etc., and tariff d:tt es utJ pon the common necessaries of lift-, S. levied in part for revenue. but in larger 0, part for the purpose of enabling the Sassociated trusts to exact higher than Ot, normal prices for the goods that all the a people use. In e.act line u ith what the R lepublican party under its greater leaders has always decla'ed to be its ty policy. Mr. Cleveland has proposed to 'i get rid of the excess of revenue byv re ry ducing or removing the taxes on nIres ty saries :and r n the raw materi:ls of manu ty facture. reta'ning the tax on whisky in I, order that the greater relief might lre ia given to the people. That as both 1g Iepublican and I)cmociatic doctrine a- until the monopolists secured control a of the Republ;can machinery an-I framed ly a Republican platform in violation of the me pledges of years. Now the Republican party, througn its platform, declares: as 1. That it will re-ist all proposals to It reduce the taxes upon n( cesear es and I the raw materials of manufacture-all r, proposals looking to the relief of the to peop!e from their birdens. r- 2. That in order to escape from a a surplus without granting any relief to the y people, it will Pet uh:-ky free. a :'. And. most atrocious of all, that it g will advance the present rates of duty on t all art'(clea. the like of wh ch are manu rt factured here-that i to say,. on cloth ing, blankets, cutlery, hardware and t other things which everybody uses-to 0 so so high a point as to "check importa tions." l That means that so far and so fast as Sthe revenue from cu.toms duties can he s spared the Republican party, if intrusted ; with the power, will plice an embargo upon commerce, until all trade with other countries shall cease, for if im ports are stopped exports also must Scease. Then we shall be a nation such as 7 Japan was before Commodore Perry 0 sailed into Japanese waters. Our mas I, ters, the trusts. will have a complete monopoly of our markets secuied to e them by law. The people will be for bidden by law to buy goods of anybody 7 else, and equally to sell to anybody else. 4 They will fix wh t wages they please. I . for they will have a monopoly of the I machinery of industry. They will I charge what prices they please. for they alone will be permitted to supply the market with goods, and we have eeen iby m experience what means they have of pre. P venting any healthy competition among themselves when outside competition is i t barred out. Surely no sane man who intelti.ently i cares for the welfare of the country and r I clearly sees what it is that the monopo- s lists have Induced the Republican Con v rent:on to propose, will vote to give such a pol'cy as that the remotest chance Sof practical enforcement. Are we opium- r Seating Chinea m.vidarins, that we shall consent to this thing?-.i u rk C'om ,marteaL .ldrerti er. g arleld on Pretestle. t Professor A. I. I'erry, of Williams ' Colle-e once said: "The late President n SGarfield said w;th his own lips to the s5 present writer, that, when he was a Imember of the Way and Means aComm!t- ii tee, every person who came before that ti Co:nmittee to get protective ta\es put on g or increased, came in the barest selish- p ness, without a thought or care except to p get higher prices for his own wares from his own (countrymen. Favorable cir cnmstances enabled a combination of caplitalists to get ho'd of the long arm of the national government in IiMl, and h to use it then and thereafter for their 11 own enrichment at the constant and b enormous expense of their fellow citi- g This remark c-aflrms what the "theno c riasts" hare been s. ing;. Th.re is no in- 5 tellige it effort on the partof Congrcss to o frame these laws in the interest of the s pu',lic. The Pittsburg monopolits ray: 11 "Give us so much tariff on our manufac. st tu es and we w II give you the electoral d vote of Pennsylvania. and put eno ich , money in the campaign fund to enable you to buy the doubtful votes in the close states." This is the way the Dorsey mo-.ey was ra sed an 18,.

The London News ridicules the argi ist ment that President Cleveland's Message Ik relative to the fisheries que,tion is a iparty move. le would not have recom mended retaliation unless he had regarded it as the last alternative to the rejected to treaty. With reference to the Toronto i. Vail' demand for cuit ,usm union betw-en Canada and the UL'nite I States, the News says: "It wouhil be a strange and ironi - calstroke of fortune shouldl Mr. Cham - herlain, who io's a m an ardent impet'i n alist, hive intirectly contributed, by his a recklessness and rancor to the detaching R It of the Dominion fram the sovereignty of t t..e queen." News from Halifax Is in the effect that those who have contended t- ithat Canada made too liberal concess:oans mei to the Un ted States, are pleased that the 1( y fisheries treaty is rejected, but other4 I h who have desired an amicable settlement I Sof the disputes on almost any equiltable I hasis, express extreme anxiety over the L I'nited St ites Si nate's action. All par ties are unanimous in dema ding that the mh.us eleadi shall beI immediately re. - t acinded and that the whole resources of Sthe Dominion, if necessary, shall bi E placed at the dlislpoal of the marine ,ie Spartment for the adequate, stern andl un yielding protection of C:nada's fishing igrounds.

Melhiu. tthe lisherlltan atnd bonatal , anti f- doubtless every onett who has ever baen d ot a fishing expedition with him up the s. MIukalee or Kinchafoanee hass hearl at the story he tells about a ghost that Shaunts the banks of the river in the vi cinity of the Fair (iroun.s, says the Al e liaey Newe(d Adr. rtlHia . 1 The ghost that Dink de'.aribes most ,. eloquentl ias in the shape of a big white it horse without a head. 1 he horse is pelr ia feet in shape except he has no head,and Iink says that he has been seeing it for the last five or six yeats. Its trysting place is along the river banks in the vi cinity of the i air Grnunds,and Dink says Sthat he can show it to any man that will ' go with him after nightfall. If he gets in his lost and rows acrous the river the big white horse follows hitn to a certain s place, and then disappears. It has given It Lim several bad frights, and one unday Sevening as he was returning front the C ereeklabove, the thing tmm. right up to his boat and seemedl to bM trying to put its fore feet in. Dink says that he has been scared a good many timea, but this was the worst fright he ever had in'bis life. The reporter was one of a fshing party that camped on the Mackalee one night last week, and heard l)ink tell Sthis ronderfnl story. "I'd just like to see some man that had tlhe grit to shoot at thle thing, but I wouldn't ctare to be close to him when he dre it," said Dink. "Well, sir, yon take me there andi Sshow it tome, and 111 shoot at it," said the seribe. - "No, sir; boys donm't yon do it," inter rupted Harrison Pettis, the scribe's Sfaithful boaetman, from the oater edge U ofthe tent, "Kaso 1 tell you why-I r knowed a man what shot at a ghts, an' f he died in erbout three weeks. No, sir; Sdon't you shoolt at dat thintg, for I don't I want you to die." S An engagement was made with link e to visit the haunted spot, but at the ap Spointed time Dink begged to be excused t saying that he was sick and dlid not Sfeel well enough to take the walk and Sface the ghost. He then promised to call for the scribe between sundown Saml dark on the following evening, but be failed to show up. Cutting Gilas Cyliders.
