Protection has not done anything of the kind. The men who work in the non-protected industries arc receiving (In: highest wages. The hands in factories where the output is protected receive the lowest wanes in the land. Within the last twelve months there were hori/.ontal reductions in wages throughout the mannfactiiring districls of Xew England of from 10 to 20 per cent. Carpenters, painters, printers, hric.kmasons, and workmen in kindred trades are receiving much higher wanes than formerly. Why? Because of the tariff? Not at all. And the claim is arrant nonsense.
