Business System Rests on Protective
Tartlff?Free Trade Revision
The present business system of the
country rests on the protective tariff
j and any attempt to change It to a free"
trade basis will certainly lead only to
Duty of Republican Party to Prevent
| Excessive Tariff Rates.
It Is the duty of the Republican parly,
however, to see to It that the tariff
on Imported articles does not exceed I
j substantially the reasonably perman,
ent differentia! between the coBt of,
production in the foreign countries
, and thnt in the United States, and
t therefore when changes take place In
the. conditions of production likely to
produce i? very large reduction in the
cost of production In the United States
It ts time that schedules be re-exami
Ined and If excessive that they be re'
duced so as to bring them within the
- Justification for the rule, by which the
j amount of tariff to be Imposed under
r Ihe protective system is-properly dei.
1 Temptations to Monopoly In Rates Exceeding
f Whenever the tariff Imposed is largea
ly In excess of the differential between
the cost of production In the two cobntries,
then (here is formed at once a
great temptation to monopolize the
business of producing the particular
r nfrtSimf otiU fn fnke advantage of uro
1 fit In the excessive tariff. This tie'
nies to the people altogether the econ*
! omies of production that competition
5 under a protective tariff should develop.
Reason for Thinking Some Schedules
, In the enormous progress in the'
] manufacturing plants and the Improve3
ment in methods which have been
. brought about in the last ten years
. In this country, there is the strongest
3 reason for thinking that in many industries
the difference between -the
cost of production in this country and
abroad, has been rednced. This is an
opinion of mine formed a priori be- j
J cause I am a Bincere believer in the
? efficacy of the protective system ultimately
to cheapen the cost of prodttc-l
Hon. The opinion has been confirmed
111 by conversation with manufacturers
ie' and others who knew something of
ia what they speak.
D," Prosperity Argument Against Reviad
Objection is made to revision on the
o( around that we are enjoying business
6(j prosperity, that this will be disturbed
|(! by a proposal to change the tariff, and
that we should wait until hard times
before we revise. I cannot follow the
^ argument. The revision proposed is
Dn to be by the Republican party and is
I not to be a departure from the protec^
live principle but In conformity with
rc_ It, It will affect only those persons
is Injuriously who are making on unreasonable
profit out of an excessive rate.
The present prosperity is not dependent
on sueh a profit. It It were, then
O' It would not be the prosperity of the
wjiole business community but only of
ti- a few unduly favored at the expense
of the community. In the present tem- i
per of the people, general prosperity
ng has net prevented the remedying of
other abuses and injustice. I don't
know why it should prevent this.
= Advantages of Republican Party on
Leadership of President Roosevelt.
I .cannot close without comment on
Ihe position of advantage for the coming
national campaign which President
Roosevelt, by the Intense earnest
ness, vigor, courage and success with
which he has pressed the reforms that
lightly bear his name, has .secured to
Ihe Republican party A trimming, donothing.
colorless policy in face of the
proof of business, railway and-corporate
abuses would certainly have driven
the party from power, however little
responsibility for them could be
justly charged to it It was not political
ndvnntage which the President
sought In these reforms buthereaT
betterment of conditions which he has
effected. Still the belief of the people
in his sincerity; his courage and
his amazing quality for doing things
on their behalf has won for him a
hold on the American public, at which,
even, big bitterest opponents marvel'
The game wan characteriied by heavy
hitting. all' the .way through. Grednsburg
forged to the front In the beginning,
but wae tied twice during the
game and each time took the lead
again; McMullen, the latest addition
to. the home bunch, was seen on the
centerptege for a little while,. but he
was unfortunate In allowing a hit that
resulted In a scare and followed, tnls
by walking a man. The bit was due
to what seemed to everybody, disinterested
and otherwise, nothing more
than a very crooked decision by Um:
plre Johnson. But .the new pitcher
was called out and GalbraltH sent in
to do* the heavy Gal was wild and
-careless, pitching the robtenest game
he ever handed out since his connection
with the team, and It was only
due to his faultless support that regulation
score card was big enough to
chalk up the scores made on. him.
Ganlear was also enjoying an off day
and got but one lilt. This was a twobagger
and would have meant something
if It had -been followed up. Grlbben
got a homo run by clouting the
ball to left Held fence1, causing O'Brien
to tie himself la a knot and land in
a heap In his effort to get It. Kmerling,
the visiting pitcher, was tapped
rather unceremonously and had to be
retired In the seventh, with left banded
Wallace to fill the vacancy. Lefty
handed out new Tangled mysteries sufficient
to save the day for Greensburg,
even after every man on the local team
had got his batting eye preparatory to
tying the score. Score: ?
