dom: "Ho mocks tho people who
proposes that the government sball
protect the rich, and that they in turn
nil care for tho laboring poor. Any
intermediary betwoon the people and
their government, or tbo kaHt dele
gation of tho caro and protection the
government owes to tbo humblest
citizen in tho land, makes the boast
of free institutions a glittering delu
sion and tho protended boon of Amer
ican citizenship a shameless imposi
tion." 'Extravagant
appropriations of public money witb
all their demoralizing consequences
should not bo tolerated, either as a
means of relieving tho trcusury of its
present surplus, or as furnishing pre
test for resisting a proper reduction
in tariff rales." ' "It
cannot be denied that the selfish nnd
private i'lterests which are so persis
tently heard when efforts are mado
to deal in a just and comprehensive
manner with our tariff laws, are relat
ed to if thoy aro not largely rospon
siblo for tho suutiuiout largely
prevailing among tho people
that tho general government
is tho fountain of individual and pri
vate uid; that it may bo expected to
relievo with paternal care tho distress
of citizens and communities, and that
from the fullness of its treasury it
should, upon the slightest possible
pretext of promoting tho general
good, apply public funds to tho ben
efit of localities and individuals. Nor
can it bo dcuied that there is a grow
ing assumption that as against tbe
government and in favor of private
claims nd iuteresta, the usual rules
nnd limitations of bnsiness principles
und just dealings should bo waived.
These ideas havo been unhappily
much encouraged by legislative ac
quiescence. Kolior lrom contracts
made with the government ia too eas
ily accorded in favor of the citizen;
tho failuro to support claims ngaiust
tho government by proof is often
supplied by no better consideration
