I have boon invited a^aiu aud agaia, but 1 have never boeti able to accept any invitation before this. I esteam it a very great privilege to be able to ad'iress you to-day. This, because I know wh it an ou-ei ,:etic, enterprisin.? and intellig ».it population Michigan contains, and I know too, that people are taking tho gro'itest iiiiiei oi; ia tha questions that are bsiui diseussad t'ai"! year. "In the brief time that I shall sp'>ak, I shall occupy myself mainly with one of those qui'stloiis, I shall do so bccause it is that in which so much iiitprest i= now being taken and upon w^hich so much is being said by speakers, by writers and through the public press. It is not iioce-sai^y for mo before I proceed to that subjscfc to speiik of tho president of the United States and his administration rnoro than a very few words. I dsfy any iniiii who has any regard for tho truth to say that Orovcr Cleveland has not made a pood president of tho United States. [Ch'j^rs.] A brave, intelligent, level-hoadsd nob'e mai;, be has Lad a clean, an upright aiid a tuccessful administration. [Loud cheer?.] Four years ago he was elected. In the cauvas.s that preceded hi.'i cl'jctioii his opponents predicted all manner of evils iu case be should succeed. He did succeod aud pray what h.-is Income of thiss prediction? [Laugh I ter and applause.] Where is the ruin that* was to follow the election of Grover Clare-land; where is the disgrac« that was to ftrf-low his election? On the contrary the coun-ti'y has been more quiet, more peaceable and prosperous than it has been for many years that have gone by. Now, I know the man; I know him well, and 1 tell you, ray fellow-citizcns, that a more u]u-ight and wise man I do not bolievc dwells within tho limits of the United States. [Loud chccrs.] And he has a noble iiand of c.iuiisellurs around him, and not tho least among tiiem is thcdistin^tished citizen of your own state, Mr. Dickinson. [Applau.«e.] Clevel fid knows not only how to govern himself within the limits of the constitution, but he knows full well how to choose good constitulionaladvisom ['' ^ers.] "Having said this much about tho admin-tration, let me proc-oed to that question to which I alluded in opening, which is commonly called the tariff question. I presume there is not a person wit hin the sound of my voice who does not kuow what is meant by the tariff, and yet it may aid us to-day if I give a clear and precise definition of what a tariff is. ^ tariff, my friends, is nothing in the world but a tax—a tax levied by the general government upon every article of commerce that comes into tlie United States and that is intended for sale within our borders, which instantly raises the price of the articles, and therefore becomes a tax or a burden upon every article of d' !;• Stic manufacture of a like nature with those which pay the tariff tax. Now we have at this moment according to the last advices I have seen, about $115i000,000 in the National treasury called surplus revenue; that id, taxes collected from the people beyond the necessities of the govarnment. Til. >e $115,000 are lying partly idle in the Vaults of tho treasury of the United States, of no service to any human being, drawing i.'o interest, ouriiiug no profit, but takon Iroiii tho pockets of the people to whom it belongs, and where, if they Were now found, thousands and tens of thousands and hundreds of thousands of people o? the U.iited States would put tlie.'n to gor^l u.>e and im- : prove their cciiditiou. [ e ] I "V'a» Democritic party s'jys th i this is a ''^ condition of affairs—tint ¡nomy ought not to b'3 like the talent, of ths mm %vt are told of in the Scj iptures, who burii-J it in the ground; that this is a very p-.or usa to make of the money of the pcopl", aad tliorofore the Democratic p.arty say that tliis surplus revenue which is produced in tb'j main by this tarilT tax ought to be rc.luo,,d, tlii.t the tax should be rodncod, so that tii-i Eurplus will not c'>n:itiue to acoumuluf,,'. Oio- opponents, oti tho othor hand, say it is better to let surplus ac.-umulate, it is bott a-to t;-.k(; money from tbo pn -kets of our ¡lou-plc—it is better to pile it up in the vault; of the case tiiat ttir'ir oj-e p.aid by the C'Mi- suniev I'f I'n ' :vrtieiïs wt-.icb art» taxed, and of all tiic d 'ill ■-rao articios of a likf^ ki::'l whicii uro ill >; K'ncairod in the Unite 1 Statie.v It is a euri )u-i fa't, aul one of the worst thinj^s about lilis tar.a tax, that v,-hile the g'jveru-mont i;!-ts $1 re.--ultiiig from the tax, domestic íiiauuf.'icí.iirers fxot as it is bost esti:uat."i, that never goes into tho trea.sury at al!. "How does this happetj? A man called an importer brings goods into the United States to b - s> .l 1. Ko cauuot sc>U a yard or a pound Uütil ho pays this tariff tax. Ho pays it, therefore, ."nd then sells it to the incrchp.nt. Of course mi;.^t get this tax back in jirice for what he .scH : t>r he would lose hi-; money. His busin-jss w.utlJ break up at once. There-u bo puts tii? ta.x on th« original cost of „ aud w(tb that price uddod with the cost of transportation and his reasonable coiniueroial profit, he .sells the goods to tho niorehant; the inorchant sell.s to tiie retail niorebaut iv.i'l of couri.e this tax e:i tcred i;;to the price continues in tho price, and to it is added the profit of the nierch.tat. Then the retail merchant sells to you, and of course lio must got in thi.s price, for other wise he wouM sell for less than ho gave for the goods, and no tnan would consent to do tUat. Therefore, tho tax is in, when ths cloth, for iu.stunce, is sold to you, anil iu tiie price you ))ay this retiail niorehuut you also pay the who!^ of this t irift tax, the inipor-tei's profi^.s, the wholesale merchant's profits a!i,l the retail merchant's ijroflis, beside tbo interest upon their money. "It is as plain as two and two arj four. If I was a schoolmaster and a boj' of ten years c.'Uld not understand that after ten niinutes' teaching I would give him up as hopelessly an idiot. [Ls-ughtor.] That is the fact in respect to this branch of the subject. Now, how much do you pay? The amouut of ..........--------------tho TTnited tii.^i-eni, -------- . ufaeturo.'-., particularly those Of cotton, iron ard steel, and u substantial reduction of the dutii-s upon those artic!e3, and upon sugar, tnoLisjos, wool and woolen goods.' "Well, that Is iirecisely what the Democrats ar-7 ti-yiiig to do. That is precisely ' what the Mills bill, as it is called, attempts to d-i; and yet these gentlemen who are bowllug around about the beneQts of protection, and tho ruin that the Democrats are bringing on the country, tejl you that this thing President Arthur recommended , only so lately is nothing in the world but I froe trr<do. j "The Republicans aro more afraid of free j trade than they aro of rattlesnakes, j [Laugliter and applause.] They are terribly j alarmed lest they should bo bitten by free I trade, [i^cnowcd laughter.] Well, now, so i far from this being free trade, tho most I striking thing about the Mills bill is that it ! is tlic most moderate reduction of tariff du-; ties that has ever boon attempted in this I country. The average duty levied under Wei! " said Jud 'o i P'"^®®"^ P®*" cent., iuad under the ' ' '"I Mills bill the avei^age woiald bo only about I m) per cent., a reduction of only 1 per cent. I upon all commodities taken together. Of cours'3 there are some things upon Which tho duty was reduced mora I "For instance, tho duty is taken from a j number of articles called rftw material, j which aro used by manufacturers in their ' work, in tho fabrication of their products. And as they receive this great lienefit of haviug tbeir raw materials treo or with a comp.iratively small duty, tho bill wisely provides that the articles manufactured by them when brought into tho country shall pay a lower rate of duty than they did before. But that is nothing more than a compensation for taking off the ¿uty from raw material. "President Garfield said iu the house of representatives on March 10, 1871: 'I was surprised at a remark of the distinguished gentleman from Michigan [I do not kuow who that distinguished gentleman was, but ho was a Michigander.] He asserted that there is no idea in the whole tariff that can bo taken iu a lump in order to stand. That coal must t.ikc salt by the hand and they, too, must take something else by the hand, and thus all interests unite with all forces before they make a stand before the country. If this remark be true it strikes a blow at the wb.ile tariff systr-m, a blow I am not willing to strike. I am unwilling to admit that bad taxes must be tied to good ones, and thus bi> kept nfi'iai:. I think it is unwise to cntinue this duty on coa), and I am, then foro, in favor of i's repeal.'

That the man who wanted pr(/tection on one article should logroll v ith the man who wanted protection on another, and thus, by all combining together and making one grand syii'-licriLC or pool, force ti-.f>ir measure through the congress of the United States. But James A.

Now, my friends, thtre is another thing to which I wish to call your attention. They say all at or.ce (1 say all at once, for it is a very late doctrine) thes,3 advocates of pro-tectioii are all at once seized with wonderful solicitude for the laboring man of the country, and they waut a high pi'otoctive tariff— not to bone fit tho capitalist; not to benefit the moiiop ilist; not to benefit the manufacturer, according to their statement, but to benefit the laboring man. He is the man thoy seek to protect. And how are thej going to protect him? Why, the.v say that a high protective tariff will better his condition, give him more wages—higher wages. I would like to kuow how that can be. I would like t<.i know how taxing a laboring man on everything from tho ¿rown of his head to the sole of his feet is going to enrich him. [Laughter and applause.] Yet this is exactly what thi.s tai^iff does. It taxes him ou the hat he wears; on that cap I put on my head to keep it warm [applause and laughter]; it taxes hitn on his shirt, ou his necktie, on his uiiderclothos, on his coat, on his vest, on his breeches, on his stockings, on his boots, on averything. [Renewed cheering.] It raises tho price and taxes him until the poor man can hardly make enough money, even if he gets a few cents more wages in the day—it taxes him until he can hardly make enough money to support himself aud his littla a lii/).! taril.. ... ........

There is one class of laborers in this country who have been, according to the claims of Abolitionists in tiie couutfy, and of tbo Republicans, their especial wards—especially under tbeir guardianship and for v%'liose interests they feel the most peculiar and earnest g licitude, and thoso are tho negroes. "t'ow, tho result of tho war was to free eboiit four millions of negroes, und I am very glad they were freed, and they have increased now to about six millions or seven millions, for the negro is prolific, [Great laugiiter aud applause]. Now, how do these negraes make their livingf Why, a many of them go to town and pursue any kind if handicraft that they can, brcoining doiTi-'stic servant.s, blacking shoe.s, shaving faces tn-doing things of that kind. Eut in the country the negro makes what ho gets by cultivating the earth throughout the whole south. How does he cultivate it? Why, ho either lias bought some land—and some of them havo bought a good deal—or he rents the land.

"Now, bow can tlje liigh protective tariff benefit that negro who raises cotton and has for nis share of the crop three or four or five bales of cdtton each year? \Vhy, gontlamen, there is no tariff at all on cotton. It comes in free as the air. The pricj of cotton, therefore, is not raised, as they .~ay, or lessened by this tariff tax, and yet licre is all that th<3 negro has for labor. Ho can't get a cent more for his cottoii by reason of any high protective'iff, and he don't get, perhaps, a cent lfe.js. He has to sell his cotton and to soli it at the price that is made by the foreign market; tho price in Liverpool or in London, to which cotton is exported from tho United Sr.ates. It is there that the price of bis cotton is fixed, aud for that price he has to soil it, tariff or no tariif. "But how is it on the otljev haud?

Now I am willing, how ever, to adiuit that, as a general rulo, labor is paid higher wages in America tlian it is in any other countrio,!, lint what are tha reas.ins for it.^ In tho iir,5t; place, it is more effective in this country. -Vii ¿Vtncrican laborer malees more in the same time; ail authorities admit that. All of them agree that his superior industry, his superior skill, his superior diligence enable liim to procluco mora in the same time than does tl'.e laborer in any other country in the wui'l.i. It is, therefore, more effective here than anywhere else, and consequently can bo better paid for. Again, American laborers are better educated, more intelligent than tho laborers elsewhere, and, therefore, can better take care of their own interests. Tiiat is a principfil reason why they are better paid in this country than elsewhere. "Now, I am not going to say whether labor unions and Knights of Labor, and all that, are a benefit or not. That is a large <|ue«tion, upon which it is not necessary for ma to speak to-day; but this I do .say, that the iabor unions and Knights of Labor have douo more to secure reasonable wages for tho laboring men than all the tariff laws that ever were paased in the world. [Prolonged checring.] "Tbero is another reason why Amej'ican laborers receive more wages, and that is the immense area Of uncultivated territory in tho L^nited States, the cffect of which is to free laborers from that dependence that may exist in other countries where land is very dear, that dependence upon the manufacturing class. In this country a man can get land to labor upon to support himself and family by simply asking for it from the general governmant, and settling upon it and remaining settled upon it a given length of time. T ie consequence is that with those advantiiges no man need be dependent upon tho good will of any monopolist in the world, and that gives our laboiing man an indo-penJenco which is not seei^ elsewhere upon tho globo; oiuiblea him, there fore, to demand, and he d >, -; rcceive, somewhat higher wages than they receive elsewhere. "Then there is the effect of our free institutions; there is tha eff.jct of the prid« that every m.qn in this country, be he laboring man or not, feels in the con.sciousness that he is an American citizen [applause]; that he hclps to govern this country and that he makes people govern it as far as possible for his benefit. [Rmewed applause.] But, gentlemen, there is another thing that is con elusive on this point, and that is this, to show that a high prot^i-tive tariff does not in-creas3 the wages of the laboring man. It is conclusively shown by tho fact that laborers in unprotected industries are as well paid aa in the so called protected industries. "Now, how many laborers are there in what are cilled the protected industries! That is to say, who are engaged in manufacturing articles which, when they are brought froni abroad are charged with a tariif tax, and how many laborers are there in tho country engaged in industries which aro in no wise protected by sucU tariff tax, and cannot in the nature of things be protected by any such thing? Why, my friends, •t has been estimated some place—I think the highest estimato I -qave seen placed upon the laborers in these jirotected industries is at between eight and nine hundred thousand men, women and children. "But I will put it at a million,uivi say that there aro a million of them, while there aro eight times as many laborers whosj indus-tries and occupations are in no wis-a pro tected by tho tariff; and, therefore, if pro tection is for the benefit of the laboring men the wages of this million of men engaged iu the protected indu.stries ought to be higher than the wages of men employed iu unprotected industries, and yet such is not thi fact. In round numbers, the labjre.-j in un protected ind'/stries receive as high wages «S those ill ttie protected industries. "I do n«5 kaow what the wagas of farm ment, owing to this great surplus that (9 thero, you would be amazed. There Í8 scarcely anything that somebody won't ask for, for they say, '•Why, tho government has money which is lying idlo in the treas* ury, and you might p well give it to us for 3ur little sehemo as to have it lying there," ind so every scheme of epctravaganco, everything in the world by which the people can be bled and high taxes kept Up is advocated by theso men and grows ip a great degreo -jut of this fact of a surplus i» the treasury."

"Gentlemen, if you will look at the commerce of she country, you will find something even more striking than that The day was, and not very long ago, when there were two countries that suostantially did t'oo cnminorco of the world; that is, carried tho trad© of the world.

[Laughter], "Now, the friends of high protective tariff say l:hat it tends to diversify labor and that diversified labor is good for the country. Well, you may admit tha general proposition. When I was a boy we used to have for old-fashioned Fourth of July dinners a toast to 'Agriculture, Manufacture and Commerce. ' These are diversified industries.

I agree that he could; I agree that it increases his profits; t agiee that he might, having these increassd profits, pay his laboring men more than they were paid before. But dooj ha do it? That is the question. [Applause aud cries of 'No, no!] Tho tariff has been raised again and again and again; it was immensaly raised by the law of Ib'Ol or 1803, I forgot which of those years it was. It was raised in a few years again, and it has been raised again and again; and'yet in all that time I never have been able to find tho manufacturer or capitalist who, upon the ra).siug of tho tariff, has increased the price paid to his laborers. If there was such a case, it has escaped tho attention of everybody, even of these diligent newspaper men, who gafuer up all the news, and sometimes a great deal that is no news at all [Merriment.] But they havo novcr boon able to find that manufacturing man who increased the price paid his laborers because tho tariff was incre.isod.
