McMillin of Termenee* moved to reduce the duty on ammonia. He said be could see no reaeon why thi * article of nm M*itjr to the fanner "htnild be so heavily taxed. McKinley, in op[*osltion stated that kine* the tariff had encouraged com petition in this country, the price of amnionia had been reduced from‘Ai to TX cents per pound Butterwort!) said that the price of an ankle was not reduced on account of competition alone. It was reduced on account of improved methods of in an u fact nm. He never doubted that the protective system was wise and had scat ♦en d blessing* on the land from shore to short- lf there was any danger to the pro teetive system it was in its oscillation be tween the extreme of free trade on the one hand, md on the other, the extreme which created inequalities among American* them** Ives. Th* I) em or rn tic Policy. The country- in the election of Harrison and the Ut-p ii bl ii an cm #rtm had declare*! un* quit orally In favor of sustaining and upholding the protective system. The conflict ir IWM had not been between schedule rates, but lietween economic pol-icies. The Democratic policy was well known. It was that the tariff should be leviod for revenue only. The Kepublican policy wa-* that the tariff, whether high or low, should be so adjusted as to establish aud protect American Interests and Indus trios in competition with the rest of the world. Did that policy mean to remove the itpHju (lit ie- which existed lietween in duet nee on this side of the w ater and Industries on the other, or did it mean to •hut out all importation? He insisted that we should not create any inequalities bere. The protective system dwelt with eondltions and not with national bound ary line* except when the pre sence of ♦hear national boundary line* indicated me presence of those conditions agate t * be influence of which it was necessary to in terpoeS the barrier of a protective tariff A Foot ('oittplliiietit, If the tariff dill not deal with conditions, then a tariff was good in the ab struct, aud if it was, the fathers of the republic hail paid themselves a poor cum pliment when they provided that as between the states there should tie no restriction of commerce. Competition never created n* s industry, They were created by the work of the brain—inventors The committee had tried to do the best it could in framing the hill, but It was not always Mf* to rely altogether on the testimony of the Y-ueflciarie* under the law [Applause on Democratic side.} He had indicated his belief respecting the proper function of a tariff act and would sooner resign btl seat than depart one hair’s breadth from that belief. Ko iyrselty with Canada. Of course he resin* ted the wisdom of the committee but why was Paul favored and Peter turned down, Why increase the profits of certain classes He could name capitalists whose profit** had exceeded those of si! of the agriculturist* in any state of the Union [Applause on the Democratk* side.} He was not, be said, difturbed lei the ap plause on the other side. He was exceed ingly grateful that they liegan to realise in any sen** that our countrymen deserved protection. If when we had protected equally end lifted up all our industries, aud tlie time should then come when we eon Id not hold our own—being the moat intelligent—the freest aud the ablest peo pie on earth—then we had better retire from the field [ Democratic applause J Butterwort!! then proceeded to expound his views touching reciprocity with Can a«la. He said that wa ware endeavoring to cultivate relations with SO,OU),(JOU people ut the southward and yet ware afraid of Canada.
