The tariff was originated as a
sort of insurance against the com
petition of aliens to raise their
products to the price of our high
er standard country, or to keep
them out entirely. In a way it
was a sort of a "bonus" to the
farmers and manufacturers of this
But the schedules do not act
automatically, they do not rise or
fall with changing conditions
They rise by organization strength
and political pull, and they seldom
fall. And as the years go by they
become one-sided, from the fact
that organized interests keep rais
ing the fence against their prod
ucts, while agriculture, with little
organization and few representa
tives in coi.gress, has but a three
rail barrier between it and the
products of many countries where
wages, standards and money keep
And' the result is that for the
year ending June 30, 1923, there
were brought into this country
agricultural products aggregating
the stupendous sum of $3,315,
000..000, while we only sold
abroad (at prices less than pro
duction cost) $1,927,000,000.
All the Industries of our coun
try, except agriculture, are pros
perous,, and all pay good wages
This condition is very largely due
to unjusj favoritism of the tariff
duties. Manufactured articles are
very largely protected by combina
tion strength, while more tnan
three and a quarter BILLIONS of
dollars of agricultural products
are brought in here to add to the
"surplus" this country produces;
to break down further the ho.-ne
prices of this surplus; to break
dowL the wiige scale of farmers
and to fores thousands more off
If the protective tariff svstem farmer's dollar,
is to Drevail in this nation then it i dear dollar to
should "be impartial and just, that
all industries be on the same level
and the dollar of the farmer be
worth as much as the dollar of the
manufacturer. It tariff schedules
are to protest those wh cannot
compete with alien producers,
then let these schedules be so ad
justed that three and a quarter
billions of dollars worth of Euro
pean ai.d Asiatic products shall
not be dumped onto the farmers
of a country who are already al
most buried under deflation
Deflation, foreign importations,
high freight and express rates
mounting taxation and the middle
interests are all against the farm
ing industry, and the result is
that it is forced to a different
basis than the other business in
terests of the country. While
other Industries have protected
themselves and boosted and main
tained their prices in keeping with
conditions, agriculture today pays
65 per cent more for what it
forced to buy than it did before
the war, and is selling' its products
as low or lower than it did before
the war. This condition forces
