The Liberals hold that the tariff can be raised so high as to pro- duce absolutely no rtvonue, with the result that taxation must be increased in order to. provide Government's expenses.

Between these ex- tremes of. a prohibitory tariff Coupled with high taxation and practically free trade with ite-'complement of High taxation, the Liberals at- tempt to hold a middle course with, as they claim, the consequencs that large revenue Is received and the burdan of taxation .is decreased.
