Boston Post (Newspaper) - April 6, 1891, Boston, Massachusetts Boston Post monday morning april 6, 1891 5 problems of the Tariff sir Charles Tupper a Mission to defeat reciprocity Public sentiment in Canada the duty upon carpet wools seem that the effect of the new regulations upon new England used be not very great for the Short routes to Western Points in the United states would be unimpaired and the Export business in american Cottons Over the Canadian Pacific would remain untouched. It might turn out however that the loss of a certain amount of East bound business would compel the Canadian Pacific to raise its freight rate and place new England shippers at a serious disadvantage. Duty upon Carpit Quot wools. The sorting clause of the Wool Tariff in its bearing upon the duty upon carpet wools will regulations governing the entry i soon come before the courts for judicial de termination. General Spaulding the assistant of goods under consular Seal j Secretary of the Treasury in charge of Cus Toms matters will Issue a circular letter to collectors at the leading ports suggesting that they impose double duty upon carpet Wool which has been sorted and quadruple duty upon carpet Wool which has been both washed and sorted. He will take this action not so much because he is convinced that it is the Correct rude As to bring the matter to a final decision. While collectors follow the Rule which now prevails at new York of considering carpet wools exempt from the provisions of the sorting clause because they Are charged with an and Valorme duty the question cannot be taken before the Board of general appraisers or the courts for review. If the collectors of customs follow the suggestion of general Spaulding As they naturally will importers of carpet wools will at once Appeal to the Board of general appraisers. If the decision of the Board is against them they will carry the Case to the courts if it is in their favor the government will carry it to the courts. It will be to the advantage of the carpet manufacturers to have the real meaning of he sorting clause settled once for All. The present practice at new York is quite tothe liking of the manufacturers but they would suffer heavy losses if they made contracts upon the presumption that this practice was to continue and it was suddenly changed. It would be better for them to know just what tarriff interpretations they Are to expect even if that a Are against them for they would then be Able to add the increased duty to the Price of their product. Whether the sorting clause applies to carpet wools is a Puzzle to the Wisest. The Ohio Wool growers have some justification in the Bare language of the Law for the Contention which they will doubtless make that the clause applies equally to carpet wools and All other wools. The clause reads thus 383. The duty upon Wool of the sheep or hair of the Camel Goat Alpaca and other like animals which shall be imported in any other than Ordinary condition. Or which shall be changed in is character or condition for the purpose of evading the duty or which shall be reduced in value by the admixture of dirt or any other foreign but stance or which has been sorted or increased in value by the rejection of any part of the original fleece shall be twice the duty to which it would be otherwise subject provided that skirted wools As now imported Are hereby excepted. Wools on which a duty is assessed amounting to three times or More than that which would be assessed if said Wool was imported unwashed such duty shall not be doubled on account of its being sorted. Under this Rule sorted carpet Wool would pay double the duties of 32 per cent and 50 per cent and Valorme fixed Lor carpet Wool and if washed would pay double this double duty. This would mean in some cases a duty of 200 percent. The rational argument is made by the manufacturers that the imposition of an and Valorme duty was intended by the framers of the Tariff to exempt carpet wools from any other charge because the flexibility of the and Valorme rate covers any increase of value due to washing and sorting. This is the View which has prevailed at the new York custom House but it is not the View which meets the approval of the Ohio Wool shepherds. No Sui h exemption for carpet wools is distinctly provided for although the manufacturers claim that it was intended to be made in practice when the Tariff was framed. The committees of the two houses of Congress blindly accepted the agreement which was brought to them by the manufacturers and growers and enacted it into Law. They admitted that they not know what it meant hut two great interests had asked for it and the Republican majority of these committees were their obedient servants. Both interests apparently hoped to overreach each other when the Tariff went into effect and it will now be left for the courts to de Ide which was the shrewder in its Choice of words. Their party a deeds recounted by senators Dawes and Hoar at the Massachusetts club mugwump Ery is their enemy the chief planks for the next Republican platform Washington april 5.�? special to the Post a the real Mission of sir Charles Tup per Here is believed by those who understand the situation to be to defeat reciprocity with Canada rather than to accomplish it. He is Here because the conservative leaders were compelled to Promise to do something in order to carry the elections but sir Charles Tupper is Likely to take exceedingly Good care not to offer Secretary Blaine any propositions which he can accept. If the liberals had won the Canadian elections an honest Effort might have been made to accomplish reciprocity. It was to help them that congressmen Hitt and Butterworth urged their propositions upon Congress looking towards reciprocal relations. It has always been the taunt of the conservatives to their Liberal opponents that the United states had taken no step to indicate its willingness to enter upon reciprocity negotiations and that if Canada appeared at Washington for such a purpose she must appear As a suppliant rather than upon equal terms with us. This argument would have been taken out of the Mouths of the conservatives if speaker Reed had not stood in the Way of action by Congress and the liberals would then have come nearer Success. The practical difficulties in the Way of reciprocity either partial or Complete Are serious while the United states maintains its High Tariff. Partial reciprocity appears to be resisted by the Farmers on our Side of the Border on the ground that it would bring Canadian products into livelier Competition than at present with our products. If Canada would open her markets to american manufactured goods the protests of the Farmers might be offset by the gains of our manufacturers. Complete reciprocity also has its difficulties even if England should not interfere with the wishes of the canadians. If the existing Canadian Tariff were maintained Complete reciprocity would mean either the importation of our Wool and other raw materials by Way of Canada or the Transfer of our manufacturing establishments to the Canadian Side of the line. Of course the United states would never consent to such a condition of things. The importation of merchandise to this country by Way of Ca Aua could be prevented by proper regulations hut the Transfer of our manufacturing interests to Canadian soil could not Well be prevented while the present Canadian Tariff remains in Force. The adoption of a uniform Tariff for the United states and Canada would solve the problem of reciprocal relations in the Way in which the most progressive canadians would like to see it solved but the inexorable logic of such a situation would he the annexation of Canada to the United states. Clear sighted canadians see this and such men As professor Gold win Smith do not hesitate to accept this conclusion. The masses of the people Are slower to come to such a conclusion while sentiment and patriotism hold them to their British allegiance. Good judges familiar with the Canadian situation say that it is Only a question of time when the people will see that their commercial Prosperity depends upon Union with this country and that commercial Union is almost equivalent to political Union. The Tariff dominates so Many interests in every state that a nation which not make its own Tariff would h a Little better than a dependency. Canada could never make the Tariff for the United states but must accept ours if she enters upon commercial Union whether our Tariff be Good or bad. If she sought to influence our legislation enacted at Washington she would quickly realize that the effectual Way to do it was to have her own representatives sitting beside those of new England the South and the West in the Federal Congress. Those who understand the situation Are waiting for this logic to he adopted by the Canadian people. Secretary Blaine is one of these. While he believes in positive measures to acquire Cuba he thinks the policy of waiting will bring us Canada. Holding these views he is not Likely to exert himself to agree with sir Charles Tupper. Sir Chari s Tupper and his chief sir John Macdonald Are also shrewd enough statesmen to see what or. Blaine sees and the y will not play into his hands by hastening the event for which he is waiting. Their policy is to stave it off As Long As possible and it is with this purpose that they Are playing at negotiations to keep the Canadian people contented and to keep Canada a dependency of great Britain. Entry of goods under Seal. Consular Blair misrepresented. He is willing to stand by his record regarding chinese immigration. Washington april 5.-ex-senator Blair minister to China was among the presidents callers at Washington yesterday. He confirmed the report that he was going to China but said that lie not expect to leave for that country for several weeks. He said his sentiments in regard to the question of the chinese immigration had been misrepresented by some of the newspapers. He was willing he said to stand by his record on that question and not care to answer the newspaper attacks on him personally. The attention of or. To. An attache of the chinese legation was called yesterday to a despatch from san Francisco to i he effect that i ii chinese merchants in san Francisco would Forward to Washington a protest against the appointment of senator Blair As minister to China. Or. To evidently speaking by authority said that no information regarding such a protest had been received and that he was confident that should it arrive i lie minister would not present it to the president. He believed senator Blair would be acceptable to the people and government of China. A Attlee monthly dinner of the Massachusetts club at Youngs saturday afternoon senators Dawes and Hoar delighted the Assembly with a glorification of the Republican party and especially its work during the past. Congress or. Dawes Wos introduced As the first speaker by sex governor Claflin and began his discourse with a grand summing us of All the great actions of his party m the past. The abolition of slavery was its first great act it has added thirty new representatives to Congress and thirty votes in the electoral College through this party every person born on the soil is inducted into citizenship of the nation Aud state and every adopted citizen the moment he swears allegiance is by common consent of Loreign Powers relieved of All allegiance and duty to the government he has left behind. This party also perfected a National banking system with uniformity of credit and tie government guarantee behind it in the exigencies of War it issued millions of greenbacks without anything but the Faith of the government behind it and fixed a Day when it should All be redeemable in Gold the same Power levied so justly and equally the War tax it has multiplied wealth tenfold in the Twenty five years of its administration meeting the demands and wants of All and has built up a phenom finally vast internal Commerce Between Stales. Continuing he said these things Are a part of the record of the Republican party such As our opponents accuse us of too fondly referring to and for which they seek in ridicule to Call us a the grand old 1 accept the name it is a grand old party and it is True. Also that the name can be applied to no other party. It is True we Are proud of our record and it is equally True they Are not proud of theirs. I is True we find encouragement in constant reference to it while they find most enjoy ment in forgetting theirs. They talk of oui Reliance on what we have done it is no won Der they fail to make a similar claim. They boast of direct descent from Jefferson and Jackson but tie loudest in the boast Are half Breeds mixed Breeds Aud of doubtful Breeds. Applause i do not blame them for finding nothing encouraging in their own record but i am one who believes that a political party like an individual has a charac ter. On which it May base its promises for the future. Whatever has been accomplished in these years it has been against the oppose uni of these people. They have no part nor lot in that which is to abide and no wonder they i not care to refer to their record now they ask that the administration of Public affairs be transferred to them. Dothes Promise to continue this great work then they have become very suddenly converted and while in some places Young con verts get the front 6eats when a political party has Only promises and no record there is m Good reason for taking Power Frera those what Piave shown by what they have done what they Are capable of doing Aud whose record is an ass Rauceo future Security. What tax Republican party has accomplished in the past is not a measure of its duty today but l is tie pledge of duty to be performed in the a that which confronts the party today. Or. Dawes went on to show Are two e Reat issues of so much importance that All else is swallowed up. The first is whether the majority Shat Rule. It is no new question As Between republicans Aud democrats. However much the one May desire to make or the other to con ceal from its record tie Republican party a nothing to fear. It began away Back when the democratic party undertook to overthrow this government because it would net submit tothe majority Aurl from that Day to this tin same spirit which dominated and coat roller the democratic party and Well nigh overthrew the government has appeared of late grow ing stronger and More intolerable and More persistent. It is that spirit which appeared in tie House of representatives during the entire Congress that has just closed. The same old spirit of the leaders of revolt manifested itself for no other reason thar their unwillingness to submit to the Rule o majority. It is that spirit that is gerrymandering districts in democratic states today ii order that a minority of voters May chanet their political complexion it is that spirit which is creeping out in Michigan so softly whose legislature is asked to provide for the election of members of the electoral College in the gerrymandered districts each for itself that a minority of votes May control the majority in me College. It was that which cosi have been enough in England to constitute the chief business of a session. Upon All of them it prepared measures upon All but one it prepared measures that Are Security for future action upon Laws and measures it is willing to stand awaiting the verdict of history. Now there Are four of these i suppose Are to constitute the chief planks in the Republican platform in the next National election and upon which after full and thorough debate we Are willing to take the verdict of the american people. These que teens Are. Honest elections the great protective system reciprocity and the preservation and maintenance of an honest Safe and stable currency. Applause now. Gentlemen if either one of these measures is to he sustained it is to be by the action of the Republican party alone and unaided. Yon Are to get. No matter what promises May be made no substantial Aid from democrats independents or mugwumps in the new England states. Shall we falter then when we have a Wise and True president a majority of the supreme court a majority of the National Senate and the educated conscience of the great free North and with it the rising enthusiasm of the Pacific coast that Dobler new England that glorified Massachusetts All standing by us Aud heartily with us to the end ,.who in regard to the most hopeless of these questions the tide is beginning to turn. It was supposed that the Pacific coast was the stronghold of free Silver yet California has within a week elected an Able and Strong advocate of a Harvard a nine the Boston leagues Walkover in the South end game weak Points of the collegians events of special interest to the sporting Public sound currency Alenot As Able and As Young As my Friend or. Walker. Oregon has. By the a a Alimous action of House and Senate commended the selection of or. Windom a successor. An advocate of sound currency. In the six new states All of them Rich in mines i see that or. Whitney of the West end Road thinks we wasted time on election Bills and admitting states unsound on the currency question these six states i say. Voted and paired in Congress just Naif and half for and against Silver. it is not to the republicans North South East or West that we Are in future to look with alarm on these matters. It is to the Southern democrats and his ally the Massachusetts mugwump. Applause Why they came to Washington six weeks ago to raise their voices after we had won the Victory. And the Clanger was Over Lor this Congress to give us their opinion on free Stiver. Nearly All of them had been for three or four years giving All their influence to the support of the Southern election system of fraud and Mirage. They voted for representatives to elect and support a speaker who represents those who voted to debase the currency and they All gave their votes for Grover Cleve land who although his personal utterances May be All right brought with him into the House of representatives where this question is to be settled the usual number of fraudulent votes. They talk about a debased currency and justly. They talk of reducing us to the English system of clipping sovereigns. Isnit a Man who is in favor of a clipped coinage naturally in favor of a clipped manhood but the clipped Sovereign on american soil is m Ore important than the clipped Sovereign under which England suffered. My friends we propose to set these things right applause to establish on american soil the right of every my to a full fair free vote and we do not feel that we can cast our in vote in Freedom and Honor until this is done. We propose to by tie honest Dollar. If it were Only the wealthy mugwump a who is to suffer i would not worry but a him drink the cup he is preparing for himself it it when i think of the $37t.000, 00 in Massachusetts savings Banks of the Lile and fire us Urance investments the safety of the a Vidow and the poor in time of distress. I appreciate the magnitude Aud the importance it of Ike question. We mean to stand by or. Walker to done to mean that the Well paid labor of Massachusetts or Kansas shall be re iced if we can help it. To the condition which the labourer of great Britain has to submit to. Our democratic friends claim the advantage it of calling Tho Young Man to the front for leadership. What old Meu can they Call to he front and have him state his record without covering himself Aud ins party with ridicule and shame laughter they be rot to Call to the front men wih no past behind them and ill take the Liberty to say that they Are calling some who Lave not much of a future before them. The Hon. J. H. Walker was called upon but in responding said that there was no dessert to Uch a feast As they had just enjoyed. The new regulations governing the entry of goods from Canada under consular Seal from foreign countries will be promulgated Early j this week. The system of consular seals upon imported goods will be practically abolished and foreign goods will hereafter be subject to examination and entry at the first port of arrival in the United states. Secretary Foster regards the system of consular sealing As Little better than a farce leaving the door open to Many frauds upon the Revenue. The system May be allowed with some new restriction to remain in Force with regard to goods passing in transit through the United states for shipment to a foreign country. The chief danger is thought by the Treasury officials to be with goods imported into this country from Asia and other foreign ports with no examination until they reach the Interior ports of destination. While the consuls of the United states Are required to obtain a list of the contents of cars which they Seal under existing regulations which is sworn to there is no examination of the goods anywhere until they reach the port at which they Are unloaded. It is claimed at the Treasury department although the instances of it Are Verv rare that valuable goods might be brought into the country under the consular Beal and unloaded before reaching their declared destination and cheaper goods paying a lower rate of duty might be substituted. Hence the decision to Issue new regulations. Secretary Foster and assistant Secretary Spaulding state that the new regulations Are intended entirely to protect the Revenue Aud not hamper traffic Over the Canadian Pacific and grand trunk railways. The Canadian Pacific railway has enjoyed a rather ii Char privilege in regard to goods imported rom Asia Aud forwarded under the consular Seal by Way of Vancouver to new York and other Points in the United states. These goods Are subject to no examination until they reach their Desi a nation while goods imported by Way of san Francisco and brought across the continent Over the american Pacific railroads Are subject to entry and examination when they Are landed at san Francisco. This Benefit will be taken from the Canadian Pacific by the new regulations and they May slightly retard traffic Over that Road and add to its expense. If the transit Trade is not touched it would Honduras land Grant. Two citizens of the United states secure the Mosquito lands. Washington. April 5.�?the government of Honduras has granted to messes.

In addition to these works messes. Perry and Imboden age to erect 100 Miles of Telegraph line establishing communication by wire Between the Mosquito Region and the Interior of the country.

Books close april 15 reopen May 2. The minority shall Rule republicans wiil bide the Senate two thirds of its time during tin Iasi session an Effort by the minority to pre vent tie Senate from deciding what it Tseh should do. In the midst of this vital struggle we were told that Massachusetts republicans were tired of this is be and were taking greater interest in matters of material Prosperity Elva they had put principles in one scale and to Iii pockets in Tho other and had discovered Tia it was no longer for their interest to insist that the majority should Rule. Fellow citizens i done to believe this of i Massachusetts republicans. You Are to be called upon in the next Campaign to decide this question and if the people decide that then Massachusetts their time. They will not revolt. Another Issue vital to the Prosperity and future growth and wealth of this country is the protective Tariff. It is not a question whether the existing Law shall prevail not whether this or that article is rated too Low or too High or whether or not it should be on tie free list. There is to be no such child a play. The question is to be on the reversal of the continuance of the policy which in �?T61 wa6 inaugurated and has since Kevii maintained to secure Aud promote the wealth of the count which Lias swept away three quarters of the debt of $2,400,000,000. And Lvii employment to thousands has added n our markets. Built up our towns and cities and carried Comfort to every Home where Industry rings Foud to the table. It is that policy or its reversal that you Are to meet. A or. D ties then made a very battering allusion to his colleague. Senator Hoar who he said had been tie Leader of the party in the recent fight for the rights of the majority. In conclusion he said have you not observed that the Leader of the opposition has received conspicuous applause from those who were opposed to free and fair elections from that great body which menaces Republican institutions 1 ask the republicans of Massachusetts if they will let the Leader of this higher and nobler baud who has so nobly fought for the same principles for which the rep Iblis was born the risk of the majority to rules be forgotten the Hon. George Hoar of Worcester followed. After some complimentary remarks regarding the Public life of governor Claflin or. Hoar said that the Congress just adjourned was the most memorable in american history. He boasted of his party a Power in the legislative bodies and of the work accomplished enumerating eighteen subjects which had been brought before the Congress for consideration. These were the Public land questions the settlement of the vast claims of Tnora than $100.000.000 against subsidized Pacific railroads the defects in fiscal administration under which new York was benefited to the injury of Boston and new England the currency the Tariff try Aires of extradition with foreign countries the securing of Access to foreign markets reciprocal treaties with the great South american states the threat Isthmian canal the relations with the rising Empire of Canada the revival of american shipping and the restoration of the american Flag to the sea the great questions of internal transportation the passage of a National bankruptcy Law above All.

Vermont be copy though the Boston league nine had a Walkover in the game with the Harvard at the South end saturday Tho College Meu pot show up nearly As poorly As the score�?15 to o a would seem to indicate. Bates and Howe were batted hard Aud the new material which Captain Dean had in hand was Given an excellent Chance to show whether they were of the stuff of which Ball players Are made. The result should be encouraging to Captain Dean. The material is there hut it must be welded into form. What is needed More than any one thing is a professional Fiela Captain so to speak who Skall sit on the Bench during these games of the preliminary season and coach the boys How to play their positions under ail contingencies. Dickinson Fallowell and Frothingham gave evidence of great Promise in saturdays game hut they not play their positions for All they were Worth simply from Lack of judgment. No matter what the style of Batter at the Bat. Schev kept Otie position All the time out in deep Fields As if Ilie i Baguers were going to Knock the cover off the bail at every Effort. Another fault and a common one it is was their failure to Start quickly for a Fly Ball and to run hard All the Way. Practice will take off these rough edges and better Ball is expected from these men before the series with tiie Bostons is completed. The infield showed up Well Hovey playing a Strong game at Short and Cook the new Man at third handling himself in Good style. If the latter can Brace up in batting he wiil make a valuable Man. Dean is Back at his old position Aud criticism other than favourable is unnecessary. Cob i the divinity no Dent who played at Wesleyan last year made a very favourable impression. To does not seem to throw a hard Ball but the quickness with which he gets the Ball away More than makes up for Lack of Speed. This virtue of his throwing was especially noticeable when he threw Long out easily on an attempt to steal second. The Harvard ran bases in splendid style and Are Likely to keep even Poole and Brokaw guessing when any of them gets to first. A first game can hardly be taken As a criterion but the collegians surely Well where they were a a petted to be very weak and that was in batting. Their work in this respect was very clean and certainly promising. Other Ball games.
