Wilflon's Tariff BUI.
Washington, Nov. 28. Chairman
Wilson of the committee on ways and
menus has Issued a statement in regard
to toe tarifl bill, the gist ot which It
contained in the following Introductory
paragraph: "The Democratio members
of the committee have fell aa no others
could feel the momentous responsibility
resting upon them, and the magnitude
of the ditllculty and the delicacy of the
duty assigned them, of framing a tariff
bill for a nation of 70,000,000 people. In
the bill tbey are called on to reform is
a vast labyrinthine system of class tax
ation, culminating thirty years' control
of the taxing poWor by a few interests
gathering into their train a host of pet
ty toll-gathering. It was carefully
framed to prevent aa long aa possible
what the author calls 'any monkeying
with the tariff,' by which he meant

Uvwrlce-tuereiu in-thelr own words and
own figures. It transferred to the free
list the proper aud fruitful revenue of
articles where most of the taxes paid
by the people were received by the gov
ernment, and greatly increased the
rates on those articles all or most of the
taxes on whloh paid by the people
went into private coflora, and it was
bolstered about bv many defenses, chief
among which are a swept and garnish.
ed treasury aud a swollen ana coio&sai
scale of permanent expenditures. Such
are the conditions that confronted us at
the outset of our work. The committee
htTd welcomed information and coun
f e! from every trustworthy source, and,
w.iilethey do not expect their bill to
escape Just criticism in all Ita details,
they do present it to the country as the
result of months of patient, anxious
fu. nd of an honest desire to dis
charge their duty, purged of all taint of
local and personal favoritism or prejuu
Ice. Ita main features are twe: First
The adoption, wherever It seems practi
cable, of ad valorem Instead of speclfled
duties. Becond-The freeing from taxes
of those great materials of industry
that lies at the basis of production."
THE SYSTEM PBOPOSKD.
The statement continue by saying
that the speclfled duties were oojecuuo

Moreover the ad valorem system has

materials on tue grouuu
The thin edge of American manufac
tures has entered every country, and
with free raw materials there is no
limit to the growtb)of our foreign trade
with incalculable advantage to labor
The statement continues by saylnc
that in every great line of manufacture
we can produce enough for homo con
sumption in six to nine months and we
can get rid of our Burplus only by ex
port; that trado cannot bo built up so
lone as raw materials aro taxed, hence
the formations of trusts to keep down
the production to the great detriment
of labor. The statoment then points
out the various Items of reductions In
the schedule, including sulphurlo acid,
to the free list because of Its general
use; castor oil from 85 to 35 cents per
gallon; Unseed oil from 35 to 15 cents
per gallon; pig lead from 2 cents to 1
per pound, thus reducing the price of
paints. It declares the increase of the
duty on opium to (12 per pound by the
McKlnley bill simply put the business
into the hands of the smugglers on the
Pacific coast. The present bill put It
where It Is thought it can bo collected.
The duty on common window glass Is
reduced more than half, which will
stimulate homo production, because it
has been produced under trust condi
tions. There is also a marked reduc
tion In plate glass.
SILVER WILL 11 K ItEAKD.
Silver will assert its right to a hear

will come In the shape of a proposition
to put a duty on silver Importations.
In the senate, if the plans of those who
have the matter in hand do not mlscar

will be made in connection with the
metal schedule, and it will bo coupled
with the item concerning lead and sil
ver-lead ores. The purpose of this
movement is two-fold. It may prepare
the way for the free coiuago of the

It was, however, In line with the ex

objectionable feature of the bill was the
substitution of ad valorem for specific
duties. That alone ought to defeat the
entire measure. The ad valorem sys
