on the other, he chose the latter as the I
lees of two evils. As between pernicious j
- class legislation, fraught with dangerous m (ouna wU
consequences to the country on the one i,. RAnIa,, tnT , hrinin froi(,,lt
hand and simply high tariff taxation on
the other, he preferred to endure the
latter, at least for a brief period. Con
tinuing, he said: "Eliminate the in
come tax and there is no difficulty in
framing an honest, consistent and genu
ine tariff bill upon revenue lines with
all raw materials free, which can be
passed by the vote of every democratic
senator without the aid of a single pop
ulist vote and which the country would
welcome and approve. This is not even
pretended to be such a measure. Num
erous senators argue that the demo
cratic senate and chamber must fall as
though democratic principles have been
surrendered or bartered away to secure
the triumph of this botched compromise
measure which is really acceptable to
no one. I am sure if they expressed
their honest tentiments, they do not ap
prove of this bill any niore than I do.
The Issue of tariff reform had better be
postponed and preserved intact rather
than emasculated, disfigured and de
spoiled in the manner now proposed.
The bill does iiot meet public expecta
tions, but at liest is an empty and beg
garly fulfillment of democratic pledges.
It does tliofe things which it ought not
to do, and leaves undone those things
which it ought to do. Mr. President, I
! not fail to appreciate the gravity of
the situation, but the course which duty
;nd consistency require me to pursue at
this hour is as clear to me as the noon
day sun. Sink or swim, live or die,
survive or perish, I cannot and will not
support this bill in its present shape."
The final vote on the tariff bill was
reached in the senate Tuesday afternoon
after three months and s day' debate.
It was, with the exception of David
Bennett Hill, who voted against it, a
etrict party vote. The populist senators
divided their vote, two being for and
two against the bill, which passed by
vote of 39 yeas, 34 nays. That the
