We just yearned to meet the "old boys'' once nioro we had met I hem once before. Tho rail road iiiMgmticH saw our eager desire written on every laeo, tho face of even our do, and so St. Louis gave us a grand wend off .iiiiiynilieenlly upholster ed ami appointed parlor coaches lor the modest Mini ol one dollar exlra. And no wo journeyed on Iroin tho "Big Muddy" to llie (itieen city of tho west. We journeyed on, all as happy as a "marriaoe bell," and our dog the iiierricm of the lot. Alas I alas I the brigblcKl day iiiiihI have ils close, the merriest heart it.i hour of gloom. The queen eitv gave us no such reception. No bauds ol martial music greeted our cars wilhsiraiiiKof martial welcome ; no cannons roared their peals of gladness al our coming; no rockets lit tho som bre hkies, no .Jackson cracker her alded our near approach and we were sad, and our dog shared our bitlor disappointment. Oh, the base ingrati tude of ii.au ! Well ni iy it wring tears even Iroin tho hearts ol scarred vets "vets" but lor whoso valor and self sacrificing patriotism, even now that fair city's battlements would be dis graced by the waving of tho stars and bars. Kven our dog wept because he found no bono to gnaw. But this ignominious silence, this unheard ol recepli paled into utter insignificance in contrast with our departure. Upholstered parlor coaches flitted in the dim distance, and we, the neurit veterans o an hundred battlefields, with our wives and little ones, and our i(!, were crowded iu'o common coaches, (well venlilaled by reason of broken windows) with scarce a place lo siaiul ami "nair a nlaco to sit." And this, Brother Allen, was tho contrast, and this the picnic. Through that long, gloomy night wo stood and watched anil shivered, and shivered and watch ed and stood, listening to the wailiuga ol our little ones nut tho weeping of our dog, and coveting tho happy lot of some wared vets," who still could lie. Aud this long night of woes, like all other nights, bad ils close. Not so wiih our eyes; they watched and scanned the kics, and when day dawned, as dawn it did, our dog gave one true rebel roar. Wo saw the sunlit spires of old ISallimorc and wc lothoti. A. U. gave one last adieu, nor sighed again tor Hie "lioya in Itltio." The dear old gray, aud the banner furled, Stauds Justillt d in that better world. Ask Hill Ilamlett if that isn't so. We didn't go to "JJosling;" we didn't join in the grand parade; wo didn't grasp the hands ot any "scared" vets; we didn't listen to any strains ot martial music; wo didn't hear any can nons roar, or loyal, loving brothers tell out their love for tho "bunion" and their zealous hatred for tho grandest portion ot (iod's grand uuivcreu. We just resigned our honored and honorable post in the (J. A.

These articles are imported under tho Uax schedule, and, boing not specially classified in imports, il is not possible lo state the exact amount brought into this country. 1 desire, however, lo call attention to the statements ol certain tnaimlac turors of collars and cuffs beforo the senate finance committeo during the last congress. It seems that Troy, N. Y., is Hie only place in the United Slates whore collars ami cuffs aro manufactured, and in a quiet way the New York gentlemen engaged in the business have done moderately well. They staled lo tho committee as fol lows: Prior to 18C5 tho collar industry ot Troy aud America was inconsiderable, while at present the sales ot the collar aud shirt manufacturers of Troy aro about $10,000,000 annually, employing 10,000 bauds aud disbursing $4,500,000 as wages (see exhibit A), which shows that our growth is within Hie last 20 years, and that we are practically an infant Industry which has really grown without protection. Exhibit A, lo which they refer.shoivs that tor the year 1887 the firm sold $,J,U02,ti6 49 worth ol goods, aud paid out in wages $4,23!,2i)u 45, leaving the very respectable sum of $5,GI3,3hU 04 lor iuteresl ou plant, other expenses besides wages, ware aud tear, etc. Their own statement is as follows: Percentage of wages. 444 per cent, of sales and 60 per ceut. ol cost. The 154 per cent, ot difference Is expense ot business, interest ou investment, etc., and what profits there may be. These gentlemen say that for 20 years they prospered aud waxed fat without protection, uutil iu 184G, because ot a labor strike by their contented and well-paid employes, the larger number of whom were woman aud children, they attracted the baleful attention ot the German importers, and, therefore, fly to congress for protection. This is all 1 cau Uud on record as to this luduslry, but 1 would be glad to know what influence has raised Ibis tariff tax upon every man, woman and child iu the United Stales who wears a cuff or collar, lu order to put more money mto the pocket of this mouopoly, greasy aud bloated, but voraciously demanding more. This single item carries the whole history of tariff taxation. For 20 years these manufacturers prospered aud grew apace without pro tection, but in 1887 alter trouble with their operatives, without knowing the amount ol foreigu competing imports, and simply because Harrison had been elected, they couclnde to put iu a claim lor their part of the pltiuder.aud got it. Why uoti The robber) must go on anyhow, aud they are as much entitled to a part of the farmers' money as any other member ot the gang. To show their insatiate greed 1 copy the following modest demand lor such duties as thev deemed uecessary: PROPOSED FORM OK TARIFF. On collars aud cuffs, whether for men's, women's or children's wear, composed iu whole or iu part of liueu, cotton, or both, 72 cents por dozen i.lcces. On collars aud culls not to ex ceed three-ply iu thickness, not more than one-ply of which shall be liueu, CO cents per dozon pieces. Not to exceed tour-ply in thickness, not more than two-ply of which shall bo linen, 72 cents per dozen pieces. Four or more ply iu thickness, all of which shall be linen, 84 ceuts per dozen pieces, ftni broidered collars and cults for ladies' wear, ! ti ceuts per dozen pieces. This is a specimen of the avarice which characterizes Ibis whole tat ill scheme. These prosperous capitalists, full grown in business, standing high in church aud slate, deliberately ask coii-gi-ess to tax every man, woman and child iu Hie United Stales who buys n cotton collar or cuff ti cents, iu order to help I hem iu amassing money. Is it any cause lor wonder that the farmers are seeking lor some explana tion ol Ibis system, or that tariff relorm is steadily growing iu public lavor? COTTON AND WOLI.KN (IOOI1.H. Iii no portions of this proposed legis lation is the outrage upon the pooror classes ol our people more conspicuous than iu the col Ion schedule. Cotton velvets, plushes, velveteens, corduroys not bleached, dyed, colored or stained, are made subject to an in creased duty of from 50 to 225 per cent. The poor girl who saves Irotu her scanty wages enough to purchase an astrachau cloak costing $12 or $14, on which Ibe duly is now 80 per cent., must pay 100 per cent. more. The dutiesare .systematically increased ou No. tin. tho lower priced goods, those costing 12 cents per yard, and ou which thu diiiv is now 72 per cent., haviuo- the duty increased lo 142 per cent., while on other goods costing 1 cents per yard, and on which the duty is now GO per cent., it is raised lo 120 per cent. On cotton hosiery valued al not more than 00 cents per dozen pairs tho dutv is increased from 40 lo foo per cent."; valued al more I hau 60 ceuts and not exceeding $2 per dozen, from 40 to 11.1 per cent.; while on the highest priced article, valued at more than $ per dozen, the duty is increased only 20 per cenl On cotton clothing ol every des cription, ready-made, the duty is raised from 40 to 60 per cent., aud ou cotton gloves, of which there are none made in this country, the duty is advanced 16 percent. On the cheaper laces.edging', window curtains, etc., made Irom Max or cotton, the duty is raised from 30 to 40 per cent, under existing law to Gil per ceut. ad valorem. This is done, as the committee in forms us, "on account of the necessity for increasing tho revenuo from some source to offset the large reduction in revenue likely lo rosult from placing sugar on the free list, and therelore the duty is increased ou these articles of luxury." 1 have been under tho impression that one object in reforming ibe tariff was to relieve the people from taxation and to reduco the revenue so there would be no surplus lying iu the treas ury ; but aside from this 1 would be glad to know why the duty is raised 30 por cent, on tho cheap laco of the ser vant girl, or Hie cotton window curtain of Hie mechanic, while tho duly on silk laces, which are used by the rich, is raised only 10 per cent. Creat is the mystery of tariff taxa tion! When we approach the wool schedule we are met with the lollowing remark able declaration: The demand Irom the representative wool growers ol the country that the rates upon wool should be largely iucreased has led the coiuuiittea to recommend the new classification herein suggested. The increases of rales for the mauulaciures of wool have been made uecessary by thu increase iu the wool rates. It will be noticed that nothing is said about the consumers, the 64,000,000 ot people iu Ibis country who are neither wool-growers nor manufac turers, but who are to pay iucreased taxes lor all sorts of woolen fabrics in order to meet the demands of Hie rep resentative wool growers. The house bill raises the duly on unwashed wool, such as is brought from South America, Irom 49 20 per cent, under existing law, to 64 10 per ceut. aud the senate bill makes a Ian ti er iucrease to 54.18 per ceut. ad val orem. Ou washod wool the duty is raised Iroin 69.98 per cent, under existing law to 65.98 per ceut. under the house Lill, ana GG.0G per ceut. ad valorem under the senate bill. Ou scoured wool the duty is raised from 81.04 per cenl. uuuer existing law to 89.14 percent, iu the house bin, aiidttMH per ceut. ad valorem under the seualo bill. Ou woolen and worsted cloths, knit fabrics and all fabrics made ou knitting machines aud frames aud all manufac tures of every description made wholly or iu part of wool, worsted or hair ol tho camel, goal, alpaca or other annual, the duty is raised from 25 to 126 por cent, over present duties. Ou cheap blaukots, hats aud flauucls the duly is raised from 73.47 per cenl. under existing law lo 93 por cent, by the pending bill, being an iucrease ol 21 per ceut. over tho house bill. On the same articles valued at more than 30 and not more thau 40 cents per pound, the duty is raised from GG.97 lo 93.62 por ceut. ad valorem under boih Hio house aud the senate bills. Ou blankets aud hats composed wholly or iu part of wool, aud valued at more than 60 ceuts per pound, the duly is raised from 60.70 per cent, under existing law to 110.84 percent, under the house and senate bills. On women's aud children's dress goods made of cotton and wool the duty Is raised from 60.03 and 68 per ceut. under present rates to 73 and 86 percent, ad valorem in tho pending bill. On all other women's and children's dress goods composed partly ol wool (he duty Is raised from 70.03 aud 72.62 per cent, under existing law lo 92 72 per cent, uiider the Louse bill and 97 per cent, ad valorem iu the pending bill. On roady-mado clothing aud wearing apparel ol every description composed wholly or in part ot wool the duty is increased from 25 to 30 per ceut. over present rates. This iucreased taxation on the abso lute necessarios ol lite reaches every lireside iu the laud. It levies its unholy exactions ou men, women and children. The miner aud mechanic, the laborer in the field aud forest, and the sewing girl iu her garret, aud the thrifty house wile darning aud patching for husband and children, all must meet alike this inexorable demand. It is said that the lax ou wool is for the farmer's protection. All 1 ask is that every farmer will put face lo lace all that he receives for bis wool aud all that be pays for wooleu clothing by reasou of this iucreased taxation, aud then turn to the faces ol wife aud cbildreu for an answer. NAKED ROBBBRT. We are told that the increase ol tariff taxes is uecessary to protect Hie Amen cau mauulaciurer Iroin foreign compe tition, and that tins protection bonelils the tanner by giving employment to a large number ol operatives who would otherwise become farmers aud by cheapening the prico ot manufactured goods by reason of Hie competition between domestic mill-owners. Agricultural implements, tho tools of the tanner, suob as ploughs, rakes, hoes, reapers, mowers, etc., are pro tected by a tmty ol 45 per cent, ad valorem. 1 have procured, aftor some delay aud trouble, a copy ol the foreigu edition ol the American Mail and Ex port Journal, which I now hold iu my hand. It is published in Spanish, and contains a toreigu price-list for the Son t ti American trade, headed " Illus trated i iitreni prico-lisl of American productions aud inaiitilacluies tor ex puliation." The Mail aud Export Journal publishes several editions, but the foreign edition cannot bo obtained in this country, aud the copy 1 bavo was brought from Buenos Ayrss. I produce the original iu order that the H'atcmeiiU I make shall not be assailed as garbled extracts from a partisan newspaper, as 1 do not pro pose to leave any loophole for escape lo I bono who are deleiidiug the prusoiit system ot tariff taxation. There are published in this foreign edition of the Mail aud Export Journal advertisements Irom 166 American manufacturing linns whose goods are protected by tho tariff. The articles advertised are to be delivered on board ship at New York al the prices named below, and I copy tho prices from advertisements ol tim same manufacturers in tho American ami foreign editions of the paper: Kotngu Home Price I'r'ee.

Il is impossible within tho limits ol this discussion to cite all the articles on which discounts Iroin tho domestic price are made to the foreign customer. but I have here the original publica tions showing beyond question the I net that the prelected manufacturer ol the United Slates are charging our own people from one-tenth to one hall min e thau they charge tor the same article to the foreigu trade. I invite and challenge examination ol the piools 1 produce, and if any senator or manufacturer cau disprove I hem 1 shall be glad to hear him. This is no quotation, but I have here the original toreigu edition and the domestic edi tion, showing the absolute truth of my statement, the prices abroad and the prices here from tho same iiianulac tnrer. Mr. President, I assert that these facts are incontrovertible., and show bevoud doubt that the consumers ol the United Stales are being systemati cally plundered under the pretence of protection to home industries. 1 know that it has been claimed that the goods on the prices of w hich these discounts are made have ceased to be marketable in the United States by rea son ol new patents aud improvements, aud that the manufacturers therefire sell them lo foreigners al reduced rales. This is a mere subterfuge. The arti cles advertised iu the exports journal I have produced aro photographed, aud it can bo seen by examination that they aro identical wiih those sold in Ibis country. No reputable niauulac turor will make any such claim, and if made. It can be easily disproved. No further concealment is possible. The truth is at last revealed, and we liml lhat those manufacturers, who arc per sistently asking higher duties to ex clude foreign competition, are avail ing themselves ot the monopoly given by the exclusive tariff to charge the people of this country for their goods from 20 to 70 per cent more that they can sell the s.uie articles for in the un protected markets ol the world. It is no longer protection; but pure, simple, naked plunder. Mr. President, it may be that the people ot the United Slates will submit to this system. Wrongs nrysialliz 'il bv custom aud panoplied with privilege and power have often bee one hoary with ago.

The struggle lor human rights is not ended, nor can it be until the nneipiai and unjust system of taxation which now wiih Ihe mask of protection rides like a booted aud squrred highwayman over the land is trampled under fool by an outraged people.
