Gpcaking to the country generally, but to Industrial New England In particular, the republican candidate declared that the adjustment of impost duties by the democratic formula of "effective competition" , would mean "a reduction of the tariff and » depression Sn American wages and American farm prices." "It means," he said, "a flood of foreign goods, of foreign farm produce, and consequent reduction of wages and incomes not only of workers and fanners, but the whole of those who labor, whether In the field, the bench, or the desk." Without referring even Indirectly to the democratic presidential nominee, Hoover stated his own position with respect to the tariff commission, about which Alfred E. Smith spoke at some length at Louisville last Saturday night. "The tariff commission la a valuable arm of the government." the republican candidate Raid., "It can be strengthened mid made more useful in several ways. But the American people will never consent to delegating authority over the tariff to any commission, whether nonpartisan or bi-partisan. Our people have a right to express themselves at the ballot upon so vital a question as this. Of Oar Choodn*. There Is only one commission to which the delegation of that authority can bo made. That ia the great ^commissign._ of their own choosing, the congress of the United States and the President. It is the only commission which can be held tijB <Ry the Associated! st, N.
