BIIAT HIE TARIFF REALLY IS , A Mearare That Protects the Farmer as Well oa Mannfacturer , WESTERN VIEW OF THE M'KINLEV ' LAW , A I'olley Time Iliillilft Up Home Indus tries , \Vhllo t'Mtiifictltton Regulates Prices rnllncy ot Demo- uratlo Criticism. OMAHA , Neb. , Oct. 20. To the Editor of fnn lln : : Tlicro was recently bnndcd toino for i > crtnnl on apparently plausible argument Upon the tnrllT problem , written , 1 believe , In llo Interest of frco trade , for Its author , In closing , remarks ! "I am convinced that al most cobody Is benefited by the tariff , except I cllqlie of millionaires who have got rich by this polite form of bepflnp , while everybody Clso is plundered for tnolr benefit. " In nn nrtlclo uhtuli forces Its author to a conclusion so clearly erroneous , onois apt to Infer Hint the opening declarations must bo equally Indefensible , and they arc. "How trntiKP It Is , " he writes , "that any American dtt/.cn sliotilil say , -when asked , lib views ppoti the tariff question , 'I don't understand It ; ' " niul again , before beginning his argu ment , ho aays : "But first , I want you to ttrolllth mo uovui into the valley or humil iation and blush a while for bavlne over been Compelled to confess that you didn't ' under stand too tarift question. " Indeed I William E. Gladstone , the ablest talesman In England , looking nttho prob lem from nn English point of view , set up an elafoor.itu argument nttainst the American fystoin Kollowirjf : Immediately upon its pub lication cunio nn equally ejchuustho nrtlclo from JitminG. Ehlne , In which o\ery promi nent feature of Mr. Gladstone's reasoning was nltnclicil , r nd , from an Aincrlcftii stand point , completely upset. ConKicismnn Mnrriion of Illinois , niter months of study and of carofnl consideration , rresi'iitcd nblll for the modification of the tariff uhlch , to u majority of his associates , Kernel wolully nt fuult. nndtho bill and its Buthnrwaiohoth sot aside , as additions to political ruins. Rojcr ; Q. Mills came forward later with nn- 0thor coinpleto revision of the existing Hchotluli' , and Immediately thereafter the most nnlmnted mid persistent discussion of this complex question that has yob taken place In the rcimbllovns \ begun , The bill Was lichciidcil , dissected , rctlsed and io m- truttoil hy the Boiinto and house , but it povcr ftSKiimed nn aspect which promised Im- provoinontupon the schedule In force , and Was there fore put away as another conspicu ous fulluro. When the lost session of congiess began , jvlth n republican majority in all Its branches , fmd aioimbllcaii president in ofllco , it was Ivell understood that the pirty whoso foro- llgbl and Judgment for twenty-four jcars had ( jlvon to Amcrlcnn Industries tliolrmag- blllcinb dcvnlopmcnt would cndowor tore- Vise the tariff upon the basis of "greatest food tn the irreatcst number. " Whether or Cot the MdCInley schedules will \vork out the bcnclit thatls hoped for , tlmo only can tell. No min , nor set of men. In a nation \\hcio interests nro so dlvcrsiilcd aa they are in ours will ever bo able to "understand" this Wide teaching problem sufficiently to tell , in advance of a test , what meosuro could bo tdoploil that would satisfy all thodcshcs of ever ) element in our national famllv. No mnn , nor set of men , can frame a bill for regulation of tariff whoso provisions would Dot bo assailed. It is easy to understand the tlmplo matter of charging an Importer a fixed ( mount for the privilege of bringing toono country for snlo the products and wares of tlnothci' , but this pait of the question has Kbout the same relation to the pioblein , as a Whole , that nn alphabet bears to n language. The people of Now England , nnd ot other manufacturing districts , uhoso prosperity depends upon the success of the Industries feboutthetn , are certainly consistent in de manding that measure of protection which is essential to their permanency and success. TUo lumbermen and others who nro depend ent mon them In Michigan and Wisconsin may bo blind to the interests of Now 1'ng- lnnd , but they nro feaifully lu earnest when the tariffon lumber is threatened. Tno raisers ot tohacco In "Vlruinla nud Kentucky Arc uilllng that the duties on lumber and woolens , nnd n multitudes of articles they cannot produce , should bo renwcd or re duced , but the tariff on tobacco must never bo disturbed , except to bo raised. In tlio west , whcro forming- the chief occupation , , . men nro clamoring for heavy reductions on everything that the cast produces , but the tnnnulio would hint nt removing the tarift pn potatoes nnd grains would too labeled by the farmers as mi enemy. All sorts of argu ments litivo brought into service by demo cratic , speakers to provo to the farmers and mechanics bow disastrous tbo outcome must bowith McKinlcy's revisions In force. And they are cunning about it , too. They refer to the Increase of duty on tin as it nn outrage , hut they tall to Inform the Intlus- 3. triouu husbandmen that tlio duty on potatoes , for the protection of farmers , has been almost doubled. They see glaring injustice In advancing the tariff oti glass , but they rarely allude to the DO rer cent that was added to butter nnd cheese. They talk of alleged oppression in nn In- prcaso of duty onwoolens , but are always too busy to explain to the farmers that the tariff on barley is more than doubled and that duties on all other grains have been pro portionately raised. They foretell disaster from tbo tariff on n number of protected coininoditios , hut thov rarely i o for to the most conspicuous of nil the ilmnpcs , ono nialo in the Interest of a multitude of farmers who nro raising tobacco , \\hcro the duty on Suinmatni leaf \tasbocn lalscd from nn average of 55 cents to exactly f3 per pound. Nor do they state to thu filmier thai duties on beans have been raised fioinlO per cent ad valorem to 15 rents per bushel ; on bacon and hams from U to 5 cents per pound ; on apples from nothing to 25 cents per bushel ; on beef from 1 to a cents per pound , nnd on cattle ami horses in Hico propgrtlon. Tluvso are the articles which enter most larpily into active competition with , our own agricultural products , aud the farmers are entitled to protection. Now the impatient free trader will say : ' "This tariff ia oppressive to the mechnnle. " And so it goes , a ho farmer wants the fruit of the loom and the workshop , relieved from the tariff ; the mechanic wants his meat mid his Hour nnd his tobacco without duties ; the professional nnd commercial fraternities could easily ho suited by hating all aiticlcs free bach class of our great population Is blind to the advantage of the others , for- gotlluir at times , tbat prosperity for ono Is dependent upon the oiler's good fortune , Ills therefore essential to advancement , and universal Rood feeling , tbat vc cloao our cars to selfishness , our ojcs to the night mares of disturbed Imaginations , and stand upon a moro patrlotio level , with a higher' ' conception of national prosperity. Aim llrst , let us mulerstanu that an ad- vuncatn rates of duties is not necessarily , In- doc < l U not usually , equivalent to a corresponding pending advance in values. It is true tlut nunufncturors'nnd mer chants , for the purposoof personal gain , may ralsotlio prices on wares , anl chaigo the al leged necessity for It to tbo tariff , but the advance will be temporary. Let the duties bo sufllclcnt to prevent foreign cbcnp labor nnd three per cent , capital from freezing them out , and competition among Amoilcan manufaturers will keep values uhoro they belong. 'iho chief enemy of low prices is the "trust , " and congress can regulate combina tions of that sort if they become oppressive. It has been tlio mission of democrats , for n quarter of a century , to criticise republican administrations ; to tear from their creditable - able achievements the glory -which they uro entitled. These political opponents niivo denounced every plan nnd condemned every act that republicans originated or accomp lished , and yet , in bplto of it nil. tlio records of tlo world would bo searched in vuin for n parallel , or even an approach , to the astound ing development which lias come to our material resources , since the election of Abraham Lincoln. Ills easy to destroy , but harder , much harder , to build , U'hls nation was born of oppression , nnd mmcantuia breast of sufroritig , Liberty of coiifcclcuce , of thought and of action , the crown undtha glory of our citizenship. Is a Morltagro that w s only inudo possible bv a contnry and a half of sacrifice. UTioro came atliuolu the days of the Pll- prims when four Httlo colonies conceived the idea that some tort ot union , ono with the nthcti , would boot infinite advantage to nil , Protection , as they understood It , nioant more than the fostering of Industries. Life and property , nnd the jewel of their compact , liberty , were nil Involved. The basis of the confederation was simple , but Just , nnd hold the people of New England together till their charters vcre revoked by King James. After the revolution , when the colonies tveroln absolute financial distress , the hard ships entailed bv England's opposition to the development of manufactures , became more and more oppressive. During the first even years , from the close of the war , over KX- 000,000 in specie jvcro paid to English manu facturers and merchants , a greater portion ofvliich could have been kept In .the col onies had homo productions been permitted , Necessity will sometimes compel what milder agencies may have failed to accomp lish , and It pro\cd to bo true In American ex perience nt that period of colonial history. Aa nrtlclo upon "American Manufactures" was published and given -\vldo circulation by people of Pennsylvania , which began as fol lows ! "Everyman must ho convinced that a people who have recourse to foreign markets fur almost every article of tholr consumption can bo Independent in name only , and are Incapable - capable of becoming cither great or prosper ous. " In his first message to congress President Washington called attention to the advisabil ity of giving official , end therefore tangible encouragement to American industries , and almost the first bill passed by thonewlopls- lath o assembly provided a tariff for protec tion , for revenue , and for the payment of the public debt. There had existed n bond of federation be tween the thirteen colonies , prior to the revolution elution , but each liad reserved the right of IndUldunl government. "When they accepted the constitution and thereby became mem bers of the union , this prerogative was aban doned , but the national government \vns under moral obligation to take no advantage of that surrender of rights , hence the enact ment of tariff regulation ivas an effective il lustration of good faith. Previous to the passage of the tariff bill , the colonies had been drained of specie , to malto up the balance of trndo against them. Almost immediately after the bill became a law , the situation begin to change , and with in ilvo yeais , exports hid more tuan doubled the Imports. At the close of the first decade , the balance had been auguwentod to § 11,1,000,000. A sur plus of revenue began to accumulate , and Thomas Jefferson asked : "Shall wo suppress the Imports and give nn advantage to for eign over domestic manufncturcisl" And then answered the question himself , hy saying - ing : "Thopatriotism ot the people would certainly prefer their continuance , and appli cation to the great purpose of public educa tion , roads , etc. The committee on commerce and manufac tures , In reporting favorably upon President Jefferson's message concerning protection , said ! "A nation erects a solid basis for the support and maintenance of Its Independence nncl prosperity , whoso policy it is to draw from its resources all the articles of first neces sity. " The rapid de\elopmcnt of American indus tries was gall aud wormwood to the l nglish manufiictuiers. Ono of the lords , In parlia ment , declared that it would bo "well worth while to Iniur a loss upon the lirst cxpotta- tlons , in order by the glut , to stifle In the cradle the rislnir manufacturers tn the United "States. " Congress nt that tltno was equal to the occasion , and upon being con vinced that : "Tho foreign manufacturer and merchants would put Into use nil their powers of ingenuity , nnd would practice whatever art could doUse or capital accomp lish , to prevent the American manufacturing establishments from becoming prosperous and permanent , " it revised the tariff nnd raised some Items to a considerable extent. The foil-going matters of record in the his tory of this nation , hnvo bccnliero introduced in order to refresh the memory of those who have forgotten how inseparably the piinciplo of protection has been connected with our national policy since the first federation of the colonies before the revolutionary war. Fortunately , or unfortunately , ns the case may bo , the McKinley schedule has been passed by congress on the cvo of election. If solllslinoss and domogogery could bo elimin ated fiom our politics , It would make little difference when n bill of this sort should como , for It would bo dispassionately consid ered. Democratic papers and speakers , know ing , but not admitting , that Intelligent Judge ment can only bo given after the law has been tried , have attacked its character , can- demned its provisions nnd Inpugncd the mo tives of Its authors. With a confidence begotten - gotten of desperation they assume , what tlmo ulono can doteimluc , and declare the bill , as a whole , to bo nn outrage upon the American people. They tell the mechanic that because the duty on tin lias been rai.sed that everything in that line will Immediately bo advanced to that extent. Because a tariff of 2J < f cents bos been put upon nails made from wire , they would ha\o \ us believe that in a very little while wo shall pay 5 cents a pound , by ttio keg , Instead of 2V , thuto now are paying. Yet they all kuoiv beitcr , or ought to. The manufacture of wire nails is of iccant origin , and the industry has prospered hoyond nil precedent , yet the price has been remarkably low. The duty that is nowImposed is simply a wlso protection. Capital has boon largely" invested , machinery perfected , trade worked up , and the popularity of ttio nails estab lished. Now that the article has been in vented , Its value shown , and the pnco brought as low as they can profitably bo furnished for , docs anyone deslro to BCD foreign manufacturers acfopt the idea , and by means of their pauper labor destroy so prom ising nn American Industry ? Not by any means , nnd the tariff Is a safeguard , but not a burden. "Wo are told that 10 per cent Increiso in duties meins an equal advance in the price of goods. If that bo true what a host of mill ionaires Nebraska nnd Kansas will have by spring. The advance of JR cents a bushel on corn. In these two states , would bring nearly JxS.000,000. Fifteen cents a bushel on barley. $3,000,000 more. Potatoes , at 111 cents advance - vance , about a quarter of n million , and so on. iaiich a statement is , of course , ridicu lous , yet It is exactly the iojihistry aim do- liibloii that Is being talked all over tlio oouu- try by opponents to the MUCInley bill. In the matter of tin , Amoricui manufac turers hmo been handicapped from thostait. English syndic itcs hive controlled the prin cipal mines and have handled the bulk of the product. Whenever It has suited their pur pose to raise the pi ice they have done so , and whenever It has scomed advisable , from pol icy or necessity , to reduce it a little that , too , bus been dono. It bos now become known tea a ceituinty that tin can bo mined In this country In limitless quantities. With a mar gin for protection of only 1 cent per pound , however , our capitalists have not been willIng - Ing to risk much money or tlmo In the devel opment of tin manufuctuics , because they could bo oislly fro/en out during the yoirs of beginnings , by foreign competition. Hut tha incronso In tariff has changed the conditions , Congress has llnally given to this Industry the same sort of encouragement that has been extended to others of our grout material In terests \\hon thov wcro too feeble to stand alone. Is'ovoi- the history of legislation has there been such an awakening of interest in a paillculur direction , as the additional duty of a cent and two tenths per pound on tin and time plates has brought about , $7,0(10,000 ( , to ho Invested in Baltimore , * 5,000ooo , in Chicago , and the McKinley bill only three wocki ou tlio market. Wo are told that farmers are oppressed by the tarift oa machinery ; that reapers and plows , nnd things of that sort , are sold ubtoad for half what they soil for hero. Is the tariff responsible for this condition of things ! Not by any means. Manufacturers sell their wares for cosh to dealers abroad. and It Is certainly true that the eamo class of dealers in this country can buy them nt equally Io\v prices. The dlfllculty lies In the manner of sale. Machines are shipped from the factory to a distributing agent , where the > nro handled at considerable expense hy nn agent of the company or a wholesale denier. In either case a proflt must bo mado. They go from those distributing stations , after having been three times handled , to a local dealer or agent in some smaller town , where they are brought Into contact with the farmer. This dealer 1ms a marglu of from 25 to-lflpor cent profit , and when ho sells , In nine cases oat of tcu , ho takes n note from the farmer , running one , two or three years , as the case may be. For this accommodt- tlon there Is usually n higher prlco on the article , for in a great number of coses when the notes como duo , they will have to bo extended , or sued , nnd this latter course , as I learned by seven j oars' experi ence in a manufacturing institution , is almost equivalent to an abandonment of the claim. Farmers , as a rule , mean to pay their dobta , but since crops and stock : nrojthe only tourcea of revenue , payment of notes dci > ends upon the outcome of the icusou's \\ork. It may be satisfactory , but If from any cause crops are spoiled , or cattle fall , then extensions of Uuie oa obligations must follow. All these operations cost money , so that the difference between what the farmer ultimately pays for a rcipcr , for instance , and what the manufac turer Actually receives , is nt least omml to the discount to dealer * abroad , bowing machine ) that nro sold at retail for from MOte to 175 apiece to the user , can bo purchased in quantities from manufacturers nt from (15 to $30. If the tariff xvas removed tomorrow from many of the articles produced in this country , the difference In prlco would be scarcely perceptible. I have sAld that when an Industry reaches that point whore It can copa with any competition tariff should bo removed from that particular interest , but I am nearly convinced , now , that It la better to let it remain as a safeguard , while- homo competition , ono manufacturer with another , is accomplishing what -HO all desire reduc tion of prices. Only n few years ago Axtnlnstcr carpets wcro wortli 53 n yard , nnd vero nil hand made. An adequate protection encouraged not only American capital hut American genius , and before very long an American had invented machinery to take the place of hands , factories had been erected , pi-ices began to fall , nnd now wo are making 50,000- 000 yards a year and nro practically inde pendent of foreign supply. Lot the tariff remain , not nsa burden , but as nn indication to the tlueo hundred manu facturers of these wares thut the government Is protecting Its offspring. A multitude ot instances might ho quoted to prove the advantages of protection , hut if our people ulll investigate matters of this nature for themselves , aud not bo influenced by plausible sophistry , w hlch seems to ho promising $ t for 75 cents , or profit and nros- perlty without labor nnd sacrifice , a much more healthy nnd desirable condition of pub lic sentiment will be develeped. Foreign nations are inarms over McIUn- loj's ' bill. Does any ono suppose that they are worrying lest American interests shall suffer ? Oh , no. They nro alarmed over two natural consequences which nro likely to fol low , 1. A great falling elf in their trade with America , which has been their most profitable market. 2. Ihoy have found American competitors , inoutsido fields , to be the most formidable of nil tticv encounter , and they are quick to perceive that If manu facturing establishments are Increased , nnd new industries nro brought Into being , the genius aud push of American producers will make them hu'tlo to hold their own , even m Holds where they are supremo. Had it boon loft for mo to frame , there nro some things la the McKIulcy bill that I might have left out , nnd I am sure that there arc a good many republicans , pirticulnrly in the west , wtioaro not la harmony with all of its provisions. But there were opponents to tha Mills bill among democrats , there \vero many personal friends who were decidedly opposed to the "horizontal" reduction that Morrison proposed , nnd it is certain that no one , however wise or considerate ho maj * bo , can prepare a schedule for upwards of nine hundred articles , that would bo pleasing to all. The present arrangement of tariff was discussed - cussed in committee , overhauled and amended in both branches of congress , and has now been promulgated ns the plan best stilted for picseut conditions that congress could do\i e. As a republ lean who believes In the party that can bo honored for Its achievements , I am willing to abide by its action till intelli gent judgment can bo passed on the measure , through the light and the test of results.
