The Clearfield Public Spirit anent the decrease in the price of sugar proves.quite logically that the tariff is a tax: "The price of sugar since the repeal of the tax proves to every one that the tariff is a tax. The import duty on sugar was 2 cents a pound. It was repealed, and the price of sugar fell 2 cents a pound. This shows that the tax has always been added to the price and that when the consumer bought the sugar he paid the tax. No man who is not a Bepublican politician holding office or expecting office will undertake to refute this doc trine. The doctrine that levying of duties increases the cost to the con sumer is self-evident and carried enough forceful conviction with it last November to whip the Billion Dollar Congress out of its boots. The cunning Blaine calls this drop 1 on sugar 'JKeciprocity. wnicn is I OIUy another name for "free-trade," and the poor man who is buying su gar to-day knows it and has begun to vote as he knows, and his intelli gent wife is helping him to see his 1 best interest in the struggle for an existence under high tariff.
