possibility be defeated In this dis trict I am sure that Mr Milliken has been a faithful representative as will be shown by a large majority and I trust the Re publicans in the three other districts are alive to their duty Advocating Knlnrsred Foreign Trade In regard to national questions he said I wish to declare the opinion that the United States has readied a point where one of its highest

with our present urea and not launch upon any scheme of an nexation At the same time I think we ihould be uniwisely content if we die not suek to engage in what the younger Pittso well termed atmexationof trade A Long Voriod of Trotection For nearly thirty years now the Jnlted States has had the advantage of rotective tariff by far tho longest un roken period that its industrial policy ms been in force since the federal gov rnment was organized Happily the rreat majority of our people without regard to party lines believe that he results to the American people from the irotective policy have been incalculably jeneflcent aggregating in a quarter of a century a national and individual wealth xsyond anything ever dreamed of before n tho history of the world HenetttH Clulmed for tho Pulley I do not mention protection because I intend to speak in reference thereto be fore this audience I merely wish to pro claim its victories Without protection the United States would have been poor indeed aftor tho ravages of tho war from 1S61 to 1SC5 With protection every sec tion has flourished aud prospered grown and gained Even where revenue duties have been laid with no expectation of de veloping industries there have inmanv iu teen great financial and industrial results The speaker illustrated this by the of the silk duty and said he could cite other similar cases A Plea for He then said the reciprocity idea he ad vocates is not novel or new and proceed ed What I mean to spenk of briefly is a system of reciprocity not iu conflict with a tariff but supplementary thereto and presentinga field of enter prise that will richly repay the effort and energy of the American people Take last year IScfl In that year our whole exports to all the countries in the three continents of Europe Asia and Africa and to Australia Canada and Hawaii amounted in round numbers to 000 and onr imports from nil these coun tries amounted iu round numbers to showing that from that vast trade we liad a balance of in our favor equivalent to that amount of gold among our people Acconnting for the Actual 1031 uBut wlicu all the accounts were closed instead of having S1S900000C in our favor we had a balance of against us from our foreign trade We must there fore have lost f 142 000000 in our commerce with the countries outside of those to which I ha re referred Where could we have found such a large adverse balancef Let me tell you We lost in Cuba from which our imports wereSa 000000 and to which our exports were only tnOOOOOO In the republic ot Brazil we lost ttl000OOiX Our imports from Brazil were SiOOOOOOO Our exports to Brazil wer 490JOUJU In Mexico wo lost Imports from Mxico were our exports to Mexico were OOOyoO Our imports from countries of this hemisphere were our ex poris 10 them were fTiOOOQOO The bal ance again us in our trade with them therefore is SWiOOO 000 exceeding our gains trom all the rest ot tne world by f 18000000 A Policy of Carel Mir Blaine then asked How can this be remedied and then made a digression to reply to the Democratic statement that we were keeping up the war tariff fie said thia was not true During the war everything was taxed whilo now one third of the articles of import were on the free list and the inevitable tendency was toward increase of that list He then con tinmid Our great mistake was made wheci we began to repeal the war duties on so large im amount of imports Any duty repealed was a favor and au advan tage to the exporting country and we have asked nothing in return Instead of tTus course which I must say was one of carelessness and wastefulness by both political parties every repeal of duty should have been preceded by a most thor ough investigation and whenever it was found practicable to export anything from the United States and thus estab lish reciprocity of trade it should have been done A jliostloin of Something or Nothing It is not a question of setting deliber ately to work to establish reciprocal ex changes bul with all the duties wo have thus far repealed it should have been a question of whether wo should get some thing or get nothing I hope now with our eyes open that we shall in future choose to get something We encounter opposition to this policy from those who declare that if we enter into reciprocity of trade with one country we must do so with all countries and thus indirectly bring about complete free trade I do not see the logic of this Becip rocity is simply a policy of circumstance to be determined favorably or adversely accorcling as its operation may make or loaa for us A Big toss Not Noticed Thn few millions of gold that have gone out of the country within the last three months has created uneasiness In certain quarters as to our financial position It is very extraordinary that the loss of these millions from banks in Wall street should be accounted so serious an event when we have lost a much larger amount during the same period from the condi tion our trade with the countries south of us without exciting the least ob servation An Extract from Masons Speech Mr Blaine was cheered enthusiastically as he concludffiTand was followed

ou the Tariff County Debts in Canal Seems All Right WASHINGTON Cixr Aug topic of conversation in the city now is the Edmunds resolution providing for a re cess of congress Senator Edmunds said yssterday afternoon tihat he offered the resolution on his own motion and re sponsibility It seemed to him ha said due to the public interest and in order that the large docket of important meas reported from committees pending before the senate that all the available time between now and the 4th of March next should be used in discussing and dis posing of them The suggestion that the president should call an extra session o congress Edmunds said he did not prove of It would imply a censure o reproach upon congress for failure transact business before it Congress ha the power to take such a recess aad pro ceed with its business without the inter vention of the executive Senators Who Object Senator Pierce said that he was satis fled that the president would not call an extra session of congress whatever migh be done Snctt a ihe senate thought could for its ultimate ob ject only one passage of the election bill that the Democrats wonl see that and that they could and woulc talk the resolution to death to proven action on the bill Another wellknown western senate said There is nc reason for congress to meet before December If the senate is t pass the election bill the rules must be changed If the rules are to bo changec it must be by a revolutionary the presiding officer refusing to recognize the Democratic senators and putting th question to a vote We can do this as well in a week as in a month Prospects of Its Adoption It is not unlikely that the Edmunds resolution is proposed for the purpose o relieving President Harrison of the re sponsibility of calling an extra session The president told one of the senators who called upon him that he did not like to liummon congress in session after they had adjourned and thought it was their duty to arrange a time for transactin iheir own business It seems impossible that under the present circumstances the Edmunds resolution could get anything like a majority vote in the senate As the Republicans could not keep a quorum oJ their own members present for the pass age of the elections bill it seems hardly possible that they could do so now for the purpose of passing the Edmunds resolu tion Opinion in Mouse Maj McKiuley and some of the other leaders in the house are of the opinion that the senate should be allowed to sbift for itself and that there is for asking the house to help the senators out of the difficulties in which they Hud them selves as the result of not passing theelee tion bill and other measures which were sent to them by the house some time ago the house do not Cannon for in ona the

thinks that a recess would be the best way out of the dilemma Speaker Reed does not commit himself but thinks something ought to be done that will se cure the passage of the election bill Will Probably Confer About It Ever since it became known that the force bill coald not ba passed this session there has been a strong sentiment among a few of the Republican senators in favor of an extra session and President Har rison lias been urged to call one Several these senators saw the president yester day and spoke with him on the subject aad others intended to do so last evening The
