Hut ilou't take the sentence to heart,
liettor go on a good old tear and be

TK OrrooHMH says "the tariff
is not a tax on theeouutry, because
irou and steel are ns cheap in A titer

so what is the need of any tariff at
att on those products?
It? the Kopubliean organs believe
that protection make high wages,

than protected Uermuny, France,

country in Europe!
Ik, as the OregvitMH insists, every

and anarchy prevails. When the

As an educator it is not reliable; it

The administration orgnn nays
that in electing Harrison the Amer
ican people "declared w ith all the
emplutsis at their command that
they approved of protection with
all their hearts." Oh no! Mr.
Jlarrison uiu not rccieve as many
votes by nearly 100,000 as G rover
' Cleveland, the tariff reformer. And
with the emphasis of 1,, 100,000
majority the people declared at the
very next election after the McKin
ley bill was passed that they did
not approve of thissortof high and
trust-creating protection. It is let
ter' to be accurate. AVir York
Tuts was I'rtisident Garfield's
idea of protection:
I hold that a properly adj usted
competition between homo and
foreign products is the best gauge
by w hich to regulate International
trade. Duties should bo so high
that manufacturers can fairly com
pete with tho foreign product, but
not so high as to enable them to
drive out the foreign article, enjoy
a monopoly of the trade and regu
late prices as they please. This is my
doctrine of protection. If congre
pursues this line of policy steadily,
we shall year by year approach more
nearly to the basis offreo trade,
because we shall be more nearly
able to compete with other nations
on equal terms. I am in for a pro
tection which leads to ultimate free
But tho Republican leaders of
more recent years, leagued with the
monopolistic millionaires, have re
versed this doctrine, They are
retreating trout "tho basis of free
trade." They are for a protection

evidence thus far taken, w
must say (hat t'ariieglo had no
good reason to mcalo down the
wagea of theskllled workmen, nine

produced is from fl 4.00 to llfl.00.
Secondly, we do not believe that
Krick ought to have employed
riukoi ton men to resist the strik
ers, thereby, in the Hrst place,
ignoring the powers of the great
state ol IVntisylvaula; and these
same lawful powers were tho only
ones in the cud that could aud did
control tho riot.
That the men whose waged were

for the necessaries of life, is uot
true, but were nieu who received

real bottom cause of this strike Is,
a foreign'corporatioit as soulless as
a horse, came to Pennsylvania, and
by protection from this govern
meat, which they ought never to
have had one tnluute, and instead
of employing Americans they im
ported foreign laborers by the
thousands, and now these same
cheap laborers have caught scent

Tho Republican party has pre
tended to protect nearly every-
thing, from a steel mill plant to
beu'segg; but it has never taken
the least step toward the protection
of American labor, except with
their mouths and pens. Au Amer
lean workman, skilled or unskilled,
In any occupation whatever, is
suliject to the competition ' of la
borers of any nationality who come
lo tills country.
Mr. Cut tiegle, for example,
is protected by a prohibitive
tariff on his product. Not
pound of the stuff ho make to sell
can land in America, and by form
ing a combination with other man
ufacturcra iu the same Hue, which
has Ihh'u done, they can fix the
price of those products, not to ex
coed the cost abroad wltli trauspor
tationaud duty added. Thus he
ha become authorhed by the law
to become a great robber of the
American people. And there has
been no protection uot the slight
est for the brawn ami muscle that
makes his products. He buys his
tabor in the cheapest market, shares
no part of his enormous profits
with his workmen, yet demtiittbt
that 03,000,000 people be denied the
right to purchase products, as he
does labor, in the cheajMt mar
kets. Protecting Carnegie is uot pro
tecting the workmen. Protecting
products hi uot protecting lalor.
The Repubticau party has never
given labor a particle of protect Jon.

Mr. Frick refused to I u form the
congressional investigating com

question. He would give no testi

It is the secret by which he makes
euormoiut profits on his products,
while pretending that it is neces
sary to reduce wagm and Im

competent testimony, however,
showed that the Carnegie company
is realizing a nst profit, over all
cost of labor and material, of from
$12 to 113 per ton ou all their man

million dollars a year profit.

of the tariff, so that a reduction of
