The Metropolitan Industrial League appointed a committee to await upon the Republican and Democratic State Conventions to urge the adoption by both of those - bodies of the following principles of industrial policy : 1. Protection to American labor by duties on importation of all articles of the kinds we can produce, equal to the difference between the cost of foreign and domestic labor and the capital necessary for their production. 2. Increased duties on those articles that have been discriminated against In the late revision, so that all American labor may be impartially protected against underpaid foreign competition. 3. Immediate abolition of all United States internal taxes. 4. Repeal all burdens upon American ships and award ocean mail contracts to the lowest bidders among owners of American vessels after open competition. 8.

That the officers of the State will be enjoined from levying on the tax - payers' property after tender ot the coupon. 3. That as questions in these suits depend upon the constitutionality of the State's legislation, the suits arise under the constitution and the Circuit 'Courts of the United States have jurisdiction of them without regard to citizenship of the parties. If the decision stands it would seem the State can collect no more revenue until she provides for coupons. Isaagnratiaa of Hob. J. Proctor Knott aa Governor of Kentacky. LOCTsvnxB, Sept.
