F. S. TO riOHT THE LAW. Farmers to Contest Leaallty Barnes Law. of the EDiyORIAL CORRB84»ONDENCE. Washington, D. C, Dec. 1.— I notice lliat the Democratic newspapers—and unfortunately some that call them' , SP I VPH Republican—are already declaring that the tariff hill which is to be framed by Congress sometime next summer will be constructed in the Interest of the trusts and will not, reflect the sentiment throughout the country for real tariff revision. The newspapers which thus prejudge and condemn in advance a bill concerning which In the very nature of the case tbey can at present know nothing of-at all are trying to build'a foundation for the position they have taken hy declaring that the Ways and M«ans Committee is-not making an hopesti investigation toochlng any of tjie tariff schedules but is hearing only those who are interested in maintaining high protection. The truth Is that before entering upon the task of revising the tariff tlie Committee had made more elaborate plans for securing in- forutation upon which to base their action than was ever attempted conneoton with any other tariff revision. In the first place, immediately : fk - the adjournment of the last session of Congress, a circular letter was prepared and sent through the Sthte Department to every consul abroad n.sking specific Information as to wag- i-K. cost of manufacture; eta Similar Inquiries were also made abroad through the special agents of the De- l>artn>ent of Commerce and I.<abor. The Committee now has a large num ber of answers to these inquiries. Then acorps of experts were detail ed from Oie departments, who com monced work In July, under the super- rlslon of the chairman and the direction of the clerk of the committee, which resulted in 'Notes and Comments' now in print bearing upon ev' ery paragraph in the present law. This book includes a review of all •leclKlons of the courts Since 1893 relating to the tariff. The work itself has rprelved the most enthusiastic in rtorsement of every tariff expert who haH examined It. i The committee also has a compare tlvo statement showing the amount of Imiwrts. duties collected, iind the equivalent ad valorem on evc^y parser an h of the tariff law for each year from 1R93 to the present tlmeL Other t -pccial inquiries have been made, and the resultii will be laid before the committee. And finally publication was made by all the Press Associations to the country several times during the recess, of Congress that hearings would begin before the Wbys and Means Committee the day after election; and the day following the election the Press Associations published notice of hearings and the schedule of those hearings, while a special printed notice was sent to every person who had previously written to the Chairman of the Committee inqairlng about ihe hearings. The widest iflvitation - was extended to everybody who had any suggestions to offer to appear before the Committee and every man who has requested to be hedrd has been or will ije given that opportunity. As a matter of fact the large room of the Committee on Ways and IbTeans has been nearly filled ever}' day for the past three weeks with gentlemen who appeared there for the pi^rpose of laving their views before the Committee. And while, as might he expected, most of these gentlemen have asked that the present Uriff be continued and In some cases increased yet there have been very earnest arguments made on the other side, the mo!it notable t)eing by the manufacturers of shoes who have pleaded for free hides and have declared their willingness If this concession eouM be granted to have! the UrIff removed from] leather and shoes.
