New York, Sept. Wood row Wilson spoke tor the first time last night in New York city as'the Democratic nominee for tho presi- dency, ills first jtolttlefll address iu the metropolis was delivered at the "Dollar Dinner" IU Ihe Wooilrow. Wil- son's NVorkmguitm's League. Before going to the dinner, tho Uov eruor met two score of editors of foreign language newspapers at tho National Arts club, and talked immi- gration to them. At the workingmeu's dinner were many women present, some ot them prominent in New York society. "One of the reasons why I am op- posed to un exaggerated protective said the Governor, "is that it is !i choosing beforehand to be provin- cial, and to have as little to do with the rest ot the world as possible. I hear a great deal nowadays about the danger of free trade. There are clrj cumstunces in this country which ren- der it absolutely impossible in our .time, I dare say, that we should have free trade. We have so divided the sphere of taxation, both by principle and by practice, between the Fedentf and the State governments that direct taxation is almost exclusively reserv- ed for the State governments and in- direct taxation is the chief resource of the Federal government, and the In- direct taxes, which we would not pay if we knew we were paying them, are chiefly paid at the custom houses. A Concrete Example "If you wait to be certain that we 'would not pay them if we knew we TV ere paying them, watch the people iyho come back from Europe and go through the customs. They are the most, indignant, and. from the point of view of some of my "Compatriots, the most unpatriotic Americans imag- inable, because they kick like steers against the payment of duties, because they then and there are consciously and advisedly paying them out of their own pockets, and there would be a very different customs policy in tbis country if they consciously and ad-r visedly paid the; customs duties out of their own pock'et directly into .the hands of an officer of the govern- ment. We ought periodically, all of us, to go outside and then come in again and what is liapp'enmg, so that when people talk to you about the danger of free trade, and the folly of the free trader, do not be afraid that you will meet a free trader in the dark anywhere, because there is not any free trader, Tvho can get aVjrd In America at present. All that we are considering, therefore, in considering the policy of protection, is relative freedom i" trade." Opposed to a Commission The Governor reiterated his opposi- tion to a Federal commission to regu- late monopolies. He said that 'there was no body of men who enough to tell tbe country what the process of industry should -be. "I have heard men speak of experts on the continued tbe Gover- nor. "Well, I have lived among so- called economic -experts all my life, an-j I know that anybody who pre- tends To be an expert; on the tariff is a fake. Because to claim to be an ex- pert on the tariff is to claim to have digested in your own comprehension the whole business of the United States, ami I know nobody knows en- ough TO know tiiat. I have met men who thought they knew it, and then I have met men who thought that they knew the great many things that were not so." The Governor's speech was greeted with great applause. Representatives Sulxer and Cornel- ius Ford, president of the New .Jersey State Federation of Labor, also apoke. Ths Governor will return to Sea Girt early tomorrow.
