the market to the agricultural products ot the United The secretary of state has been quoted several times in the senate as arguing that the MclCinley bill did nut in any of its features open up Now the necretary uf state was dealing in entirely with foreign and not home and It will be cleur to any senator who has read the letter that he intended to have said and expected to have ljuen understood that In the Me ICinley bill there was nothing to open up foreign I do not understand that in a protective tariff there is an especial purpose to opon up foreign U is the purpose of a protec live tariff to create a home which is worth infinitely more than any foreign And that was undoubtedly the understanding of the secretary of state and not a purpose to reflect at all on the McKinley bill
