The Tariff Question and Its Im
portance to the People-Hla
Views and His Desires.
The Hon. Columbus Upson addressed
a large audience last evenlog at tho
court house. lie nude some preliminary
remarks In which he apologized for not
peaking on Saturday last, but It was
due to tho attentions of an old enemy
that had been his antagonist for SO odd
years the asthma and In opening his
pecch said :
Fellow Cllltenl.
I appear before yon to-night at tho re
quest of a number of friends, private and
political, Republican and Democratic, to
present my views on the all-absorbing
question of tho tarlir. I do not appear
here for tho purpose of delivering a cam
paign specoh, but to discuss this great
and Important question tho tarlO. In
doing so, whllo I shall endeavor to show
the evil of free trade and Its handmaid,
a tariff for revenue only, as well as the
errors and wrongs of the protective tariff,
shall endeavor to satisfy every Impartial
and unprejudiced mind within hearing
that my vlevs are fully in accord
with tho doctrine of the Democratlo
party as maintained In the past, and as
re-conflrmed In the late Democratlo con
vention held at Chicago. It Is not my
purpose here, nor Is tt my aim to create
dissension or division In the Democratlo
party, but on the contrary, to reconcile
differences of opinion, with a view of
uniting and harmonizing, and so far as
within my humble power lies, make
successful that grand old party. This
fellow citizens, Is a dry subject, and I
say In advance unless you have great
physical endurance that your patience
will be exhausted before I get through,
and you havo my sympathies In advance,
for the field which I have pointed out to
cover to-night Is a broad and vast one,
Involving the Interests and the concern
of 63,000,000 of people. I propose to
touch upon the different theories In re
gard to this question, upon the Morrison
bill, the wool question, and upon our
merchant marine ; upon many objections
that havo been made to the tariff, and
to present tho different theories In re
gard to It. I said that this was a
very dry question. I know of but
two other dryer, and thoso are
drought In Western Texas and
lndenendent and straight out
voter on the eve of election who has to
be wet every few minutes In order to
keep him from being blown from one
side of the fenco to the other. Some
times It seems to me very strange and
Incomprehensible that the great body
of American people, Democratlo or Re
publican, can differ upon this great
question, so far as the general principle
goes. As to Its solution, I can conceive
of no reason why there should be any
maienai or reui auierence ueiween
patriotic American citizens on this
great question, except a few who having
particular Industries would desire them
particularly favored or a 'few who
would desire to reap rich rewards
from the Importations of foreign manu
facturers or productions of this country,
but so far as the great mass of the peo
ple are concerned, I have been unable to
see, whether Republicans or Democrats,
mere snoum De any material aiuerence
upon this Important question. This Is
not a new question; the discussion upon
the tariff commenoed 70 hours after tbe
organization of the Federal government,
nfter tbe adoption of the Federal Con
stitution. It has been, discussed from
that time to this with a few Intervals by
the greatest and brightest minds of the
country. Look over tbe discussions of
this question by the early statesmen of
mis eouniry, ana men iook over tne Dis

I am unqualifiedly opposed to tbe doc

among them I will notice the following:
Under nrovlslon of the constitution
United States, representatives and direct
taxation must be apportioned among
the several States according to their
numbers. Free trade means direct taxa
tion; we must have money for the
support, or the government. Tho
greater' portion of tbe money

United States for the support of tbe
Government, Is raised by duties upon
