tho statements mado before your committee tho protected Industries of he country have never been at any time in our history in such a depressed and discour aging condition as now after nearly hlrty years of continuous protection parties engaged in these in dustries declared lhnc tho slightest reduc tion in duty would compel them to close their works and discharge their employees aid others have even gone so far as sort that thoy would be forced to go out of business if the rates of taxation am not in creased At the same time tlio laborers in theso industries are complaining of insuf ficient

it impossible to stato with accuracy the effect of the Increases They express the opinion the increase on tobacco will bo and other items show an increase of Add ing theso amounts to the shown bythe
