hall Mills followed He declared that this was the first bill thai had come before tho American people with its mask tons oil or like a highway man demanding their purses To chock impor tation was to chock exportation When wo refused to take the products of other nations that refusalwas an inbrdiction against our ox ports and as we removed the barriers to a free exchange AVC increased our trade Protection boiled down meant more work and less results and carried out to its conclusion it meant all work and no results Mills tho provisions of the bill re lating io hides tin plate and sugar and then said that at length these were brought to their knees at the confessional and were bound to admit that there was widespread de pression throughout the agricultural regions What did tho bill do to aid It put sugar on tho free list Two years ago the Dem ocrats stood hero and declared that the eonrtry was on the edge of shadows The Kepnnli cans had ridiculed this and had said that farm mongagos were only further evidence of pros perity and wealth Wliy did notthe committee treat sutrar as it woolen goods and cotton goods and iroi goods Why did it not put a protective duty 01 sugar and compel its production in this countrj and carry out the protection policy The eom mittee had found out that the wheat and con production was in danger and increased the duty The United States exported

for all ills The farmer could stand in his cabbsico patch and defy the Avorld This was a cabbagehead bill The Republicans must do something more than this in order to fool the farmers This bil would almost stop tho exportation of agricnltura products and then tho Republicans would have a storm worse than a Nebraska cyclone Agri culture was chained like a galley slave Whur her bonds wore rended and her products exported to foreign markets tho price of the products would be increased at home and abroad and the increased price would extend to employment in all departments of labor The industrio of the country had developed until they produced 15 percent more than could be consumed in this country The surplus was constantly increasing and tho question Avas what Congress was going to do about it Tho Dem ocratic way was to let down the barriers and let the surplus out to the people Avho wanted it and take from other people what they did not want and wo did The people want a foreign market and they are going to have it Discussing the sugar bounty clause he said that the people who raised corn and wheat and rye Avoulo step up to the counter and say will take some sugar in Tho Democrats were opposed to a subsidy He Avanted to see tlio flag of the Union float on every sea Ho wanted to sec an American vessel in every port but he Avail ted to see those vessels float into foreign ports as shipsrepresenting free American in stitutions The Democrats would not impede the passage of tho bill When the Republicans appeared before the great American people after passing their measure the Lord have mercy on their souls The committee then rose and tho House took a recess until S oclock when the debate would be continued At the evening session ODonnoll spoke strongly in favor

McKinlcys motion was agreed to and the House went into Committee of tho Wholo MeKiiiloy then took the floor in support of the bill Lie said the result of the last political cam majority in this House the presence of Harrison in the Presidents chair means that a revision of the tariffwas demanded by tho peo ple and that revision should be along tho lino and in full recognition of tho principles and pur poses of protection The bill presented was in full continuation of the policy of a protective tariff i The bill did not abolish the internal revenue tax as tee had found such abolition unnecessary The bill recommended the abolition of all special taxes and a reduction of the tax on tobacco and snuff and remove the restrictions upon growers of tobacco With these exceptions the internal revenue law would stand as This re duced tho internal revenue taxation over ten milliondollars The bill also liberalized the drawbacks on imported raw materials when ex ported after manufacture The present law allowsa 90percent drawback Tho new law would allow 99pcrcent This disposed of tho free raw material question After discussing the bill more in detail Kc Kinley said that under the duties fixed by fihe bill on agricultural imports of agri cultural products be supplied the people of the United States by the American farmer rather than by the Canadian farmer and that distributed among the farmers would relieve some of the depression prevailing and give them confidence aud courage and increased ability to raise the mortgages upon During the of reciprocity with Cannda the United States had bought more than it had sold What Canada wanted what the other countries wanted was a free and open market in the United States What the United States wanted if it ever had reciprocity was reciprocity with equality explained and defended the wool and the paragraph in the metal schedule concerning tin plate and considered the free list Referring to the growth of the carpet industry United States he said the price of carpets had gone down while the ad valorem equivalent had gone up A favorite assault of the Democratic free tradersand the revenue tar iff reformers was to parade this high percentage and equivalent toshow the enormous burden taxation imposed people When steel rails were 5100 a ton there wasan equivalent ad valorem duty upon them of 28 per but when the rails were reduced to a ton because of the duty of 28 per cent which had induced our manufacturers to engage in that business valorem equivalent went up to 56 per cent looked at Ue per cent the Re publicans looked at theprices The Democrats would rather have low ad valorem equivalents and high prices than high ad valorem equivalents and lowprices Tharo wascomplaint againstthe bill that it would stop exportation and interfere with our foreign markets the foreign consumer a better consumer than the American consumer the system of revenue tariff we bought we sold and paid the balance in an unhealthy state of
