per cent is direct tax owing to the fact that we do not produce ever 8 or nice per cent of the sugar used by the American and we are directly de pendent on foreign countries for a sup ply of this article of prime necessity to every family in our It we could produce the sugar we use I should be in favor of protecting as I would any other home and it me that as a century of protection has shown that we from lack of climatic compete with sugars that are produced nearer the tropics than we the time has come to give our people free I am also in favor of largely reducing the differential or discriminating duties which have existed ever since the foun iation of our government between raw and refined If we can do this we shall accomplish two it would give us sugar 75 per cent lower than we get it now it would up the trust root and I do not know whether the other members of the committee will come to my way of but I hardly expct to see sugar put on the free We shall probably make a compromise and give a bounty for the of sugar in this Another member of the committee oaid that he thought a compromise on ihe sugar question would be reached on which the duty would be put a little
