Senator LaKollette ...ites the questions he would have had put to each manufacturer under oath before the committee anil adds: "It Is a serious mistake to assume that tariff rules can be determined by any committee of congress in the absence of specific data. "It matters not wneuior u tariff bill ia being framed wita a view *o f i x i n g the duties at a rate which shall measure the difference in the cost of production between this and competing countries, which is mainly if not wholly, the difference in labor cost; or whether the tariff bill is being framed with a view of eliminating all protective duties and fixing the tariff with the sole object of producing revenue, it is in either case vital that the committee shall know the average coat of producing the article in this country, and the average cost of producing the article in competitlng foreign countries. "So tariff legislation under Democratic control is to proceed exactly as under Republican control. The subject is not to be treatr-l as an economi". problem. Jt is to be 'he stake in a partisan game and the people of the United States are to suffer the consequences. "The Payne-AldricJ bill raised the ratns r gardless of the burdens imposed on the consumer. And the course of the democrat!", senators indicated that the Underwood-Simmons bill will fix the rates, regardless of production cost and the wrongs it will Inflict on the wage earner and OL legitimate industry."
