any mode that will in ite our people to rash experiments or iat will launch Into doubtful and angerous What I mean o speak of briefly is the system of rc iprocity not in conflict with the protec vo tariff but supplementary thereto nd presenting a field of enterprise that richly repay the effort and energy of IB American We shall find it nstructive and valuable to examine into 10 sources of our imports and tlie desti ation of our exports and to strike balance between the Take ast In that year ur whole exports to all the countries in he three continents of Asia and and Canada and Hawaii mounted in round numbers to and our imports from all those coun ries amounted in round numbers to showing that from that ex hange we had a balauce of n our equivalent to that amount f gold coming to our But when 11 accounts were instead of hav ng in our we had a alanco of against ns from ur foreign We lave lost in our commerce vith tho countries outsido of to vhich I have Where could ve have

our exports o them were the balance against us in our trade with these coun jics therefore Is cxceding our gains from all the rest of the world jy twelve By figure of speech can we flatter ourselves into the relief that our trade with our American neighbors Is in a prosperous low can this state of affairs be rem edied Yonhave heard a great deal within tho past ten years by our democratic friends about the iniquity of the republican party in keeping up the war This fact of the mat ter is the war tariff has not been kept but has been amended over and over again until tho revision of 1SS3 left scarcely a trace of the actual tariff that was in operation at the close of the war and for a few years During the war we were compelled to tax almost everything in the air in the the earth and under the The necessities of the govern ment were so great that wo could allow scarcely anything to be imported with out paying a and I think no patriotic man can deny that that was a wise We were not then studying tho philosophy of trade but how best to save the life of the Money was a prime necessity and we seized It wherever we could reach it law But during the last eighteen years a great change has been So en tirely has the war tariff been abol ished that in tho year ending June 30 the articles admitted free were considerably more than onethird of all the To be the Imported articles that paid duty exceeded in value and the imported articles that paid no duty exceeded The inevitable tendenay of it I toward the increase of tho free Our great mistake was made when to repeal the war duties on so large an amount of Any duty repealed was a favor and advantage to the exporting and we have asked nothing Instead of this course I must was one of carelessness and thus reciprocity offrtrade it should be do intend to thatwe could have admissiohof American Into tho countries r chase amount Tho richer cannot expect completereciprocity in amount tfrom countries less whatever we should have received would have been clear and repeals of duties whatever we may be to get will be clear It is not a question of setting deliberately towork toestab lish reciprocal with all the duties we have thus rfar repealed It has been a question of whether we should get something or get have chosen with our eyes closed to get noth r hope now with our eyes open that we shall in future choose to get We 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 coun tries and thus indirectly bring about a complete freo I do not sco the logic in this and I thot fact will not prove what is We cuter into reciprocity with one nation because we find an advantage in Wo may cline to cuter into reciprocity with another nation because wo see no advantage in Eeciprocity is sim ply a policy the circumstances of which are to be determinedfavorablyor ad versely accordingly as its operation may make of lose for To say because we enter into reciprocal relations with one country on one we must enter Into reciprocal relations with all other coun tries on all things is as absurd as to say that if I buy a horse today I must necessarily buy a drove of asses tomor All objections of that kind I am unfounded and will not stand the test argument or practical Our people do not realize the great fact that if specie payment is in this country is is likely to be endangered by our present system of trade with tlie LatinAmerican The few millions of gold that have gorieoutbf thocountry within the last three months have created uneasiness in certain quarters as to our financial It is very ex traordinary that the loss of those millions from the banks in Wall street should be accounted as so serious an event when wo have lost a much larger amount dur ing the same period from tho condition of our trade with the countries south of us without exciting the least When our merchants and bankers come to thoroughly appreciate this fact we shall receive aid and influence in the re form of our trade with tlip quarter in thus it has been impossible to Tho large audience listened with the profoundcst and the speech met with great
