It might be well to review a tew of the
points of President Harrison's last an
nual message to congress, just after the
election of 1892, which elevated Cleve
land to the chair. Viewed from the
standpoint of facts as at present exist,
his ability as a seer is not inferior to
that of a president and statesman. We
'There never has been a time in our
history when work was so abundant or
when wages were as high, whether
measured by the currency in which they
are paid or by their power to supply the
necessaries and comforts of life.
"If any are discontented with their
..' state here ; . if any believe that wages or
prices, the returns for honest toil, are
inadequate, they should not fail to re
member that there is no other country
in the world where the conditions that
seem to them hard would not be accept
ed as highly prosperous. The English
agriculturist would be glad to exchange
the returns of bis labor for those of the
American farmer, and the Manchester
workmen their wages for those of their
fellows at Fall River.
"It is not my purpose to renew here
the argument in favor of a protective
tariff. The result of the recent election
must be accepted as having introduced
a new policy. We must assume that
the present tariff, constructed upon the
lines of protection, is to be repealed
and that there is to be substituted for it
a tariff law constructed solely with refer'
ence to revenue ; that no. duty is to be
higher because the increase will keep
open an American mill or keep up the
wages of an American workman, bnt
that in every case such a rate of duty is
to be imposed as will bring to the treas
nry of the United States the largest re
turns of revenue. The contention has
not been between schedules, but be
tween principles, and it would be offen
eive to suggest that the prevailing party
. will not carry into legislation the princi
pies advocated by it and the pledges
given to the people. : The tariff bills
passed by the house of " representatives
at the last session were, as I suppose
even in the opinion of their promoters
inadequate, and justified only by the
fact that the senate and bouse of repre
sentatives were not in accord and that
a general revision could not, therefore,
"I recommend that the whole subject
of tariff revision be left to the incoming
c ingress. It is a matter of regret that
this work must be delayed for at least
three months ; for the threat Of great
tariff changes introduces so much uncer"
tainty that an amount, not easily esti
mated, of business inaction and of di
minished production will necessarily re
sult. It is possible also that this
uncertainty may result in decreased
revenues from customs duties, for our
merchants will make cautious orders
for foreign goods in view of the prospect
of tariff reductions and the uncertainty
as to when they, will take effect. Those
who have advocated a protective tariff
can well afford to have their disastrous
forecasts of a change of policy 'disap
pointed. If a system of customs duties
can be .framed that will set the idle
wheels and looms of Europe in motion
and crowd our warehouses with foreign
made goods, and at the eame time keep
our own mills busy; that Will give us an
increased participation in the "markets
of the world" of greater value than the
home market we 'surrender; that will
give increased work to foreign workmen
upon products to be consumed by our
people without diminishing the amount
of work to be done here; that will en
able the American manufacturer to pay
to his workmen from fifty to a hundred
per cent, more in wages than is paid in
the foreign mill and yet' to compete in
our market and in foreign markets with
the foreign producer ; that will further
reduce the cost of articles of wear and
food without reducing the wages of
those who produce them ; that can be
celebrated, after its effects have been
realized, as its expectation has been, in
European as well as in American cities,
the authors and promoters of it will be
entitled to the highest praise. . We have
had in our history several experiences
of the contrasted effects of a revenue,
and of a protected tariff; but this gen
eration has not felt them, and the ex
perience of one generation is not highly
instructive to the next-. The friends of
the protective system, with undimin
ished confidence in the principles they
have advocated, will await the results
of the new experiment.
"The strained and too often disturbed
relations existing .bet ween the employees
and the employers in oar great manu
facturing establishments have not been
favorable to a calm consideration by the
wage-earner of the effect upon wages of
the protective system. The facts that
his wages were the highest paid in like
callings in the world and that a mainte
nance of this rate of wages, in the ab
sence of protective duties upon the pro
duct of his labor, was impossible, were
bfcured by the passion evoked by the?e
contests. He may now be able! to re
view the question in the light' of 'his
personal experience under the operation
of a tariff for revunue onlv. If that ex
perience shall demonstrate that present
rates of wages are thereby maintained
or increased, either absolutely or in their
purchasing power, and that the aggre
gate volume of work to be done in this
country is increased, or even maintained,
so that there are more or as many days'
work in a year at as good or better wages
for the American workman as has been 1
the case under the protective system, Blackwood's Magazine. The bullet
everyone will rejoice. A general process which, when fired from a musket, car
of wage reduction cannot be contemplal- ries death, will be harmless if ground
ed by any patriotic citizen without the ! dust before beingfired. The crystal-
OT-ftVfint ftrmrehensinn. Tt mav h in-
deed I believe is, possible for the Amer
ican manufacturer to compete success
fully with his foreign rival in many
branches of production without the de
fense of prodnctive duties, if the pay
rolls are equalized ; but the conflict that
, . . , , . , .
stands between the producer and that
result and the distress of our working
people when it is obtained are not pleas-
ant to contemplate. The Society of th

"Thre are ten companies in Australia
and four in New Zealand engaged in
the raobit-skin business, says an Aus
tralian to a San Francisco Chronicle re
porter. Of these one-half added the
meat canning' to their business. -Yon
will understand, therefore, that there
is a big' monopoly, which is not at all
anxious to see the rabbits exterminated.
Interested with it is a very large num
ber of the population, who find rabbit
killing more remunerative and less hard
work than farming-.
"Pasteur endeavored to exterminate
the rabbits by inoculation with chicken
cholera. ' It is well kndvra to those be
hind the scenes that lie did not get a fair
trial, and, in fact, was so hindered and
hampered that he withdrew his agents
from further experiment. .'
"The question ha3 comcrup before the
government again, and a bill is now be
fore the Sydney legislature asking for a
vote to build a brick wall entirely
around the agricultural boundary of the
colony of New South Wales. Rabbits
will r.ot burrow lower than two and
one-half feet, and it is proposed to sink
the wall to that limit of depth. The
other colonies will watch the experi
ment with great interest, and if it suc
ceeds will probably all follow suit.
Sacb. a course would confine the rabbits
to the great Australian bush, in whose
sandy deserts they would soon die out.
"What use is made of all these rabbit
skins'? - Why, the hat on your head is
made of them. The hair is plucked off
the pelt by hand. A fortune awaits the
man who can invent a machine to do it.
A fine blue fur is then left on the pelt.
The skin is then pared away from the
fur by' delicate machinery machinery
so . fine that when the last paring'
is cut off the fur sometimes hangs in
one filmy section. This is worked up
into felt. Ordinary hats are made
from rabbit skin. A better class is made
from hare's skin. The best arc made
from the nutria, a kind of water rat
trapped in Buenos Ayrcs, and then
come beaver and musquash, obtained
in the United States and Canada. The
cowboy wants the best hat in the
world, and as he pays for it he gets it.
The nutria felt stands wet and remains
stiff-brimmed after soaking, because it
is made from the fur of a water ani
mal. The American jack rabbit is no
use at all to the trade. The English
rabbit supplies the best furlike silk,
but of course not water proof. Then
comes the New Zealand rabbit, fol
lowed by the Australian.
"We used to export hats in quantity
from England to America, but now
the Americans can dress skins as well
as the English, and they make' all
their own hats, importing- their fur
from us, of course. I do not under
stand why the United States does not
import rabbit skins direct from Aus
. tralia, seeing- the enormous quantity
which it buys from England. At a
rough guess I should calculate the
United States manufactures sixty-five
thousand hats every day,, while Eng
land manufactures about forty thou
sand. .The largest hat manufactory in
the world is the Brussels,, which turns
out ten thousand hats a clay.
"Why am I interested in the exter
mination of rabbits in .Australia?
Well; I am interested in one of the
chief fur companies in London, and we
