Uriff Though the Democratic platform adopts as the sound
sis for the tariff the principle on which the Repubhcans
have long legislated. Democrats continue to talk and write
against protection through force of haoit. mey .m
their old tariff yarns, though these have been proved false
time and again.
One of these that has been worn threadbare is the story
that the farmer buys all he uses in a protected market, but
sells all he produces in a free trade market. Thee are things
the farmer uses which are admitted free of duty, so that

If anything the farmer uses in his bufiness was omitted
from the free list of the tariff of 1922, it is the fault of the
farm bloc in congress, for it wrote that part of the tariff
that effects the farmer and congress granted all that the
farm bloc asked.
The untruth about the farmer buying in a protected
market has as many lives as the proverbial cat.
