Lord Chester: As much of a farce
was that Indianapolis tariff revision
convention. Wholly made up of
beneficiaries of the protective tariff,
It planned for a permanent advisory
a.ljunct of the useless department of
commerce, to suggest when ana wnat
changes should be made by congress
In the tariff schedules. Thus the
people, it was hoped, would cease in
a large measure uom oomering wun
the tariff question, supposing their
interests represented by the com
mission; ' whereas, the couinilKsion
would represent the protected inter
ests solely. And., th .. Indianapolis
convention! bore down hard iiuon tho
lOsltlort that, the tariff JVaie:
should be made non-partisan1. "What
Hd this mean? It meant that the
controlling element In the Republican
party would continue to stand stead
fastly for the protective tariff, and H
was .hoped that the Democratic party
might be divided to some extent
through the influence of the Louis
iana sugar and rice producers. This
dream trill never be realized.
Deacon Duncan: No, sir! So long
as the people are taxed neavuy tor
tbe benefit of manufacturers and a
lew others, and these have control
of one of the great parties, the tariff
will be the leading question to divide
parties. Equal rights, for all, special
privileges for none, will be the motto
of those who line up against the pro
tective tariff; in what words the pro
tectionists will endeavor to Justify
their course hereafter B cannot say.
Where the people really rule, their
intelligence will ultimately enable
them to see how they are taxed to
enrich a class, and then the tariff
question will ceas to divide parties.
and will drop out of politics.
Count Hertegovnia: And now
comes the tariff question. The pro
tected interests are busy. They see
the peiple are getting tired of being
taxed heavily to enhance their pros
perity and? wealth, and that some
thing must be done in the way of
making a showing of revision of the
tariff schedules. The people must
bo hoodwinked some way. The manu
facturers do not! want to lose the
goose that lays their golden eggs.
. Baron Faust: Their tactics . are
amusing. A congressional commission
holds sessions - for.' months, taking
evidence bearing upon the subject of
revision; but who are the witnesses
summoned before it? Nobody but
benefiiciarles of the protective tariff.
The consumers of the prohicts taxed
for the benefit of manufacturers or
producers are not summoned. They
ere the great mass of the people, but
their testimony and opinions are not
wanted. They are squeezed hard for
the benefit of the manufacturing
plutocrats who eontrol the govern
ment, but an expression of their
views and wishes Is not wanted.
They are told to keep quiet while
their bosses determine how much
milking they will stand. Funny, Is it
not, In this boastful country, where
the people think they rule?
