be The estimated surplus of the next flsnal year will bo with the amount now on hand and available reaching will justify a reduction of the revenue in the sum contemplated by the bill report ed of and probably more from the customs and say from the internal or a total of I The majority report in part It was the aim of the committee to fix the duties upon that class of manufactured goods and farm products which can be supplied at home so as to discourage the uso of like foreign goods and and secure to our own people and our own producers a home Believ ing that competition among ourselves will fcecure reasonable prices to the consu mers in the future as it has invariably done in We Beet by the increased duties recommended not only to main but to enlarge our own manufac turing and check those supplies from abroad which can be profitably produced at The general policy bill is to foster and promote American production and a diversification of Amer ican industry The committee believe inasmuch as 000 is annually re quired to moot the expenses of the gov it is wiser to tax those foreign competing products which seek a market here iliuii lux our domestic or noncompeting foreign The responding as it believes to the sontimoDt nf the country and recom rnendalions of the submit what they consider to be a just and equitable revision of the while preserving that meas ure of protection which is required for our industrial will se cure a reduction of the revenue derived from customs and internal revenue sources Ten provisions of the bill are discussed in In the case of wool the report cites figures as evidence of an alarming decline in the production and says the advance duties has been recom mended s bounty to growers of As a duty of one dinar pet pond would be required to protect the o Ugh weaving aid the committee decided ao Ugh duty would embarraM the auk wea interests without sufficient to secure the industry M speedily as pos offers the neremsry differential of

in the different branchea of the To produce cocoons necessary to tap fly this silk will gives a temporary but remunerative employment to the fami lies of half a million farmers every sea To encourage the production of cocoons and give direct encouragement to producers the committee has also pro vided a bounty of aeven cents per pound for fresh cocoons the bounties to con tinued ten Of the Internal revenue the committee says it recommended the re peal of all statutes imposing restrictions upon the farmers and growers of tobacco so that they may sell with In the report says of the advance in duties on agricultural pro duels as they are far the most part ar ticles which this country can produce to the extent of onr the increased duty will reduce the importations so the entitled upoa the madu of the Men The same proportion is quoted on rye aad the minority adds this shows how futile it is to attempt to afford protection to the farmen by imposing duties upon the im portation of these products and this large and intelligent class of citizens can not be reconciled ia this way to a policy which fhe tsxes npon their not be increased and our hold their own revenues will farmen will The same result will follow in other cases of increase and where the revenue in special cases is the increase wiU be far less than indicated by a com putation based on the theory that im portations will continue lower large as under mended which it is believed will afford ample protection to the wool growing farmers The committee believes the United Slates should produce all the wool it and with adequate de fcisMve legislation it will do The an nual consumption is six hundred million pounds and with the protection afforded by the bill the farmers of the United will at an early day be able to Buppiy the The bill seeks to stop the frauds which have buna so shamelessly practiced in the past by importing wools reaJy for the loom under new to avoid legal Tiie report gives an increase duty on wool and a construction is given to the worsted clause in the existing law as a reason for increasing the duties on woolen goods to protect the manufac tutors The advance in fine grades of it is will diminish im poriationK and thereby reduce instead of increase revenues and transfer to this country the manufacture nf from to 120000000 in woolen now made On the metal schedules the report says that no reduction can be made in pig iron or ore duties without detriment to the existing and the committee has not felt justified in interfering with the further development of our iron ore now so promising in the southorn On sugar the report says The com mittee recommends that sugar up to and including and molasses be placed on the free list with a duty of fourtenths of one cent per pound on

that home production does not materially effect the and the duty is therefore a tax which is added to the price not only of the but of the domestic as a clear made the cost of sugar and molasses con
