Nh compromise In their I'mr'at to maintain the exist ing duly on tobacco was the watch word of the several hundred RnuveiH of tobacco who assembled In mass meeting at the rapitol this nfternonn. The object of the Ratherlns was to discuss with the senators and con presMiten from this state the proposed tariff r'-vl.-don on tobacco. Th" entire Connecticut delegation o oonKt'ess, with the i-cepon of Sen itor Hrande-K'-e and Concressman It latins, were In attendani'e, and their reniarlis were Riven the closest attention by (he big tuitherlnjr. HesolutlotiM were unanl-mou.-dy adopted callltii? ution our rep. re.-entatives and sentitors lo use every lesil jmnte means in their power to niai;tain the present rate of duty on all tobacco Inported into this country and to defeat any means looking to the free introduction of the Philip pine tobacco. ,1. ('. Mltrhetson of Tnrlffvlllo called the mei tlPK to order. Til.-iddeus C. Ci raves of Hatlleld, Ma?.',, was chos en permanent chairman, lb- put the vote on the resolutions and the; were unanimously adopted. Colonel l'hclps of Windsor called for n discussion of the re-inliitlotis. He was of the opinion that It w.u t i -tlouahle whether the vhv,.: of till.-; Rath' rinu: could now he irotten hefore the w.i-s and means coniniltlee of run i'res:;. Consressman K, .1. Hill was then called upon. He -j.ild the hearings before the wits an ! means committee dosed lae-t week, and the nctutil work of framlnK up n tariff bill Is now on. H" was tinribh- to say how any brle's van now he placed before the com mittee. The only way In his .Indit mi tit w:i to have copies sent to the various im others of th" ways and m-ans committee. Thlncs. he said, have materially elrined. since the to baeci prowe.-s appeared before the committee. Then there appeared to be a tmanlmltv of opinion on the to bacco in lustry. This does not now appear to be the ease. To his surprise ni l rs h.'U- cpres"ed a deslf" to be heard on the tobacco revision rpief. Hon. He read rxtcii.-dvcly from the. hearings before tho committee to show the desires of the importers at I New York. Th's he pointed nut. was a great danger to the Connecticut In terests, adding: "Von are up against it," Conai'es.sman Hill sail he -had no excuses to make, nor npolofrlcs to of fer for his stand In the Interests of th. Connecticut tobacco growers. II told of th" move mad,- two years nno in th- Interest of free trade In tobacco aRainst which both he and Congress man I', iifv oted, a ldlnn that similar possibilities exist tfUV, Me Slid Iv came to Connecticut two weeks ai;o to Kct the f,. ntlnient of t ie growers and .'II ppe"--d he bad obtained It. Con c.i, sinan Hdl a,loeati-d a move simi lar to that made by the Muar men bv which an iiKfci tuetit was reached cov ermK limited Imports of that product, lb- advised the appointment of a com mittee of three to represent the grow ers who will he In toitci with the re publican members of the ways and menus comninlie, and who will also watch the Xew York Importers. He had no further advice to offer or pol lc to advocate. Tho coni;res.sman warmed up to hi. subject considerably an 1 emphasized bin remarks for-dhly. Mr. Chapman of i ilastonbury said the tobacco board of trade was op posed to a compromise similar to that made by the miitnr Interests, lie nd vocnt.'d fiKhllllK to tbe bitter end for what they want in the tariff line. It belnn his opinion that '"If our con gressional representatives stand to gether with other states connresss will not. dare to cut down the tobacco tariff." CoiiRfessman Henry was then call ed upon and said tbiil the case of tbe Connecticut tobacco growers was ahly presented before. the ways And means committee. He said the explanation inane by Mr, Kill conoornltiK the ex istliiLt sltuallon was substantially cor rect. II" does not. look for any con siderable reduction In the tobacco schedule ns a whole. He regretted to :ay, however, that In bis opinion Philippine tobacco and sucnr will bo admitted free to a limited extent. Ho agreed with Congressman Hill that, our Interests have more to fear from a uniform duty than from Philippine. Invasion. Tnlted States Senator Morytan O. Hulkeley won applause when In open Inu his remarks he wild that, he never knew of an army starting Into battle a iltnll 1 1 ni; defeat or desirous of com promising a victory, lie did not an ticipate any dlllleully In getting before either branch of conRress any views the, citizens of the Culled Slates may desire to express. tie felt that the views of litis body could be Rotten before onnej'css through the Congres sional Ueeoiil. He said he should feel It his duly to sliind by the setillinents of his constituents on this and nil other questions. CoiitluuliiK' the sen ator said the tariff revision called foi ls in H. one for revenue only, but. for revenue and protecllott Jolnlly, a bill which will take Into couslderal Ion the difference In la hot- rales, He was not In favor of a compromise ndmltllnn three hundred thousand pounds of FiiKar now because this would menu leltiiin down the bars for the whole proiliii'i laler, To hlni the dunKcr of Filipino tobacco was the eventual pro duelion of a first ipiallly brand which w ould liiul Its way Into this round y in compel II Ion with our products. o one can tell, nt Ibis moment, be asld. how Influential will be the niliiilnislra lion's policy for free Filipino tobacco, lie Mini Ills rolleiiKiies will stand or fall on protection.
