Our first comments on the labor riots
traced their cause to the financial pol
icy id the Government in carrying on
a contraction policy and forcing undu
ly a return to specie payments, where
by commerce was dampened and cut
otr—tin* railroad as the great commer.
ei il pulse being the first to indicate it.
Now the great tree trader, John I
Bright, of England, attributes it to
high protective tariffs; and there is no
reason why both these causes should
not have operated together to produce
the labor riots that endanger our
country. Free trade is a policy of vast
importance ami is of controlling influ
ence on our prosperity. A significant
statement in the resolutions of the St.
Louis workingmen is that their lack
of prosperity has been in the last fif
teen years during which a high tariff
has obtained. However, following is
the statement of John Bright:
In John Bright’s address at the un
veiling of the Cobden Memorial Statue
at Bedford recently he referred to
the disturbances in America as a local
insurrection. He said, regarding the
strike, it is one of the most deplorable
and discreditable events that ever hap
pened in the Northern States, so fir as
I his kn iwledge goes.
ued, saying he attributed these dis
turbances to the evil produced by the
policy of tin* United States in locking
itself up from the rest of the commer
cial world by onerous duties levied
up<>n every class of manufactured ar
ticles which, if competition was open,
would prevent labor from becoming
unruly, lie declared the prostration
of the great iron industry was owing
to a collapse arising from general iiu
p.iverishment of capitalists, which of
itself would necessitate a great fall in
wage-, ami concluded by saying he
believed the excessive system of tariff
heretofore levied for the protection of
labor in America has received a death
blow, and nothing could avert a
