politicians to handle tiie affairs of the

The republican ]M|«rs of the west are
saying that the tariff bill was made to
favor the east. Tout Heed, the great
republican demagogue, says it was
fashioned expressly for the south.
Where is the consistency? The repub
lican party should get together—but it
The republican press is now howling
that beer, whisky, tobacco and large
Incomes are necessities of the poor man
and should not lie taxed. It Is strange
that opposition to the efforts of the
democratic party should lead these
long-headed editors into such Imek al
leys of logic.
The new tariff bill will probably go
liefore the house today, certainly not
later than Saturday. The house should
lie as prompt as it was in the silver bill.
Democratic medicine is good for the
people and the sooner the prescription
is filled the quicker will this sickly con
dition of things be cured.

iff tax under the law of 1S83 ranged !
from 22 to 1® percent: under the Mc
Kinley act it ranges from 24} to 100 per
rout, and the average tax is mere than
44 per rout.
The policy of protecting wools by
liigli tariff taxes was entered upon in
1867. It was assumed that the tax on
the raw material would make it higher,
and to compensate the manufacturers
an additional and specific duty was
levied on foreign cloth to make that
dearer also. It was intended that the
consumer should bear the whole bur
den—should pay the tax on the raw ,
wool and on the cloth made from it.
The scheme has not worked well.
The only one of the original purpotes
of the framers of the wool tariff that
has been realized is the wrong done to
the consumer, the purchaser of woollen
doth, of ready made clothes, of carpets,
blankets and flannels. And the cheap
er the go««ls purchased, which means
as a rule the poorer the purchaser, the
higher the tax that lias lieen exacted.
Last year the people of this country
paid a tax of $34,21*3,606 on woollen
goods, the full value of which was
only $35,792,005. This was a tax of
more than 05 per cent. In the same
year the tax paid by the manufacturers
for their raw material was $6,799,085.
This was not the only cost to the peo
ple. The tax on raw wool has injured
the business of manufacturing good
cloth and lias stimulated the shoddy

woollen means a («sir woollen. From
1860 to 1870 the capital employed in
shoddy mills increased 561 per cent and
the proiluct 339 ]ier cent. From 1K80 to
l*ton the value of the product increas
ed 88 per cent. The shoddy cloth pro
duced in 1890 was 67 per cent of the
woollens made in this country.
The high tariff on wool has also in
