More ^HiaaiHaM' J QiB Total Importation Wm Hereafter Gome In Free— BraxjticaUy AU Direct Taxation, Except on "Whisky and; Tobacco, is Abolished. The Republican party has enacted -the MeKinley bill after ten months of profound and elaborate debate. IT UNDERTAKES TO SAY THAT A WISER, BBAVEfl'AIEER REVENUE BILL HAS NEVER BEEN PROVIDED IN ALL 1 THE HlifOBY OF THl^REPUBLIP I- IT UNDERtEAKES, TO SAY THAT UNDER: THE OPERATION OF THIS NEW TARIFF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL PAY A SMALLER PROPORTIONS OF THE .GOVERNMENTaESPENSES THAN EVER. BEFORE. Tfhis concluelon wiU be ^force4 open any t ^air-minded man who takes the trouble to examine its provlfilons. In the not place, a large part of the internal .revenue taxation on tobacco has been remitted, and all those annoying special licenses for the sale of tobacco have been abolished. 'THE AMERICAN FARMER AND RBTAILES WILL BE AS FREE TO SELL THEIR TOBACCO AS THEIR WHEAT. Inthfr*ext place, practtcally aU'dlreot taxation, except the Internal revenue taxes on -whisky and tobacco, have been remitted to the people. This has been done by means of a remarkable ehlareemeBt of the free list, It Is practically true to say that everything, the like of which Is not or cannot be largely produeedji this OffUfnr. hw bee?i placed on the free list.

Butthe^clnimajustmade are established, by the faetthafr every increased! rate must be placed iaone ef these five classes-: ~ , a First,, THAT: WHIGH COSSISTS'IN THB-GOaKEOTIO^ OF EBROR3. Tfite, la a small class, rendered necessary by the Inequality In rates bafewean the raw material and the manufactured article, or by treasury department regulations, or by a failure in the language of previous nets to express the congressional will clearly and accurately. Theiflterestaof the 'consuicer are affected by this class, if at all, only in an Infinitesimal degree.^ , . . •-•". . - - . .-. ..• , • - . . -„ . ; - / Second, THA.T WHICH CONSISTS IN THE REVISION OF AD VALOBtf* KATES hlTCHERS, BY REASON OF THE GREAT FALL raPEICES, THEY HAVE' LOST THEIR PROTECTIVE VALUE. This la also a small class. It has resulted largely from new and Improved machinery and front the great fall in transportation, prices, so that the moderate ad valorem levied In former tariffs no longer possesses any protective strength, but signifies less by from 30 -to 75 per cent thaa It signified when- originally levied. Third, AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS. An important and general increase In duties has been provided for all farm products. The tariff of 1883 has been found by experience wholly inadequate for the protection of the farmer. Although, under toe protective system, hla expenses for necessary supplies, such as farm Implements, hardware, clothing, dry-goods and groceries, baa been constantly decreasing, HE HAS BEEN UNABLE TO OBTAIN FOR HIS OWN PRODUCTS • A--- FAIR LIVING PRICE. Importations of farm products into the United States have increased front SiOiOOQ.OOOt In 1850 to 8256,000,000 in 18S9. The purpose of the McKtnley bill Is to CHECK THB IMPORTATION, and to hold, the, Amerloantmarketfor ihd American farmer* •Fourth; LUXURIES, WHETHER THEIR LIKE IS PRODUCED HERB OR NOT. Champagnes, brandies and- cigara are Illustrations of this class. The theory upon which 1 these articles are made to:pay a heavy duty lg conceded,to be correct, even by -the advocates of a "revenue tariff." It insists that people who can afford enoh indulgences en afford to contribute through them to the support of the government. _ Fifth, THAT GLASS OF FINE MANUFACTURED GO:OD3 HITHERTO 'NOJ PRODUCED IN. THIS .COUNTRY. The American market lor these goods has hitherto been conceded to foreigners. Theyconstitute the largest and by far the most Important of these five classes. They Include such articlearas fine lacea, fine linens, Ine finest grades ol woolen goods, of satins and- velvets and the most highly deeerated pottery. The want of protection is the only thlng-that has stood In the wayof the/manufacture of thesegoods In America. Into thek. manufacture THE ELEMENT OSr^tTMAST ItABOR ENTERS ENORMOUSLY; AND IT. IS THE REPUBLICAN PARTY'S PRPPOSITION^'-BT IMPOSING SUCH. A TARIFF ON -THE FOREIGN ARTICEE AS WE&LTOaLEE*W FOR THE DIFFERENCE "BETWEEN TH1T PRICE OF LABOR HEKE AND THE PRICE OF LABOR ABROAD, TO ENABLE -r OUR PEOPLE- TO' ENTER' THIS NEW KIND OF MANUFACTURE. To one otlhsse five classes every increased ddty ID the McEMey bill must be assigned.

The tin schedules will Illustrate these points. We are now buying all our tin plate from England. Last year she sold us 742,136,640 pounds of tin plate, and It cost us $21,786;- 70T. In the last TWENTY-FIVE YEAR8-WE HAVE SENT OVER TO ENGLAND THE TREMENDOUS SUM OF 8320,037,363 EOR TIN PLATE, every penny of which might, as well-as not, have been Kept here In the employment of our own people. We can make our own tin plate just as well as England-, Ifrthe price can be kept where It is to-day. TtieEogUsh plate iamafle In Wales, where CHEAP FEMALE LABOR, COSTING. FBOJt THIRTY TO SIXTY-FIVE CENTS ADAY, IS EMPLOYED, .thl the basis of their net coat, the English are charging us 300 per cent profit on A common tin enp, for instance, that retails all over the United Statesfor FJ^ coste the, Welsh, manufacturer ONE AND, ONE-THIRD CENTS. ~T&e dinner which the American laborer carries his roll and bis coffee, and for which he pays twenty- five cents," coats the greedy Briton less than twelve. Now*, then—despite the disparity between the thirty-cent female labor of Walej and the expensive labor of this country—OUR PEOPLE CAN EASILY MAKE THO! SAME ARTICLES AND SELL THEM AT THOSE PRICES, AND EARN A LIVING; but the mischief of It Is, that every time thejfctry the Briton lowera Ms _ aa he can well affordito do, and drives our people out of the business. Tin-plate works have been established In America again and again, -BUT EVERY TIME THE" FOB-r SIGNER HAS SEEJT THE MARKET SLIPPING AWAY FROM HIM HE HAS CUT PRICES,: AND HAS KEPT THEM DOWN UNTIL HIS;AMERICAN RIVALS WEBB FORCED TO -SUSPEND. Thereupon, however.'and Instantiy, he has put up his rates again. The net result of this is, that although American consumers are forced to pay, high prices for tin-ware their money-all goes to employ British labor, to reward British capital and to pay British taxes . _ It Is now proposed tfureverse this business. MILLIONS OF CAPITAL ABU "AT THISJipHfiNI— THE NEV^ TARIFF BILL HAVING PASSED—ENGAGING IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE BLACK HILLS TIN MINES AND IN THE CO|T- STRUCTION OF. TIN-PL ATE FACTORIES. The duty has been raised from a merely revenue duty of one cent a pound, which .the .American consumer has been paying, to a protective • duty- of two cents a 'pound, which the British-producer will have to pay If he , wants to sell Ms tin-plate here. He will no longer be able to chase our people out of the tlmjbnslnest; and; without adding a aointiila to the price ottin.ware, we will hereafter supply our own work. Think- what this new Industry; will mean to American. labor! It will mean an addfc tionatannnal Consumption .of 1,000,000 tons of Iron ore, 300,000 tons of limestone, 2,000,000 tons of coal and coke, 400,000 tons/of pig iron, 5,500,000 pounds of lead, 18,080,080- pounds of tallow-and oil, 40,000,000 pounds of sulphuric acid, 12,000,000 feet of lumber, and will give .direct employment to 35,000 work-people, to whom will be paid In wages 823,000,000 . Airthls In a single year! • - • GREAT PROTECTION FOR FARMERS- And Cheaper Prices Guaranteed:IJpon.all. Their Necessary Expenses*The lies that are belngitold about the tin-plate schedule are a fate sample of the weapons employed.against the bill throughout. It Is alleged, for instance, that the Increased: woolen.and linen duties will inevitably raise prices upon the consumer. Now, it Is Plata that they can have that effeet, if they have Jtat.all, only upon, those varieties of good* on which Increased duties have been.Imposed. THOSE VARIETIES ARE ONLY TB3T FINER-GRADES, such as persons of large incomes will use. The duties have not been raised, but LOWERED INSTEAD, UPON THE ORDINARY GRADES such as are la common use, and the prfcea^f these cannot.poaaiblygo up,.because the market for them la already In the possession of-American manufacturers. THE EFFORT OF, THIS BILL IN ALL ITS DEPARTMENTS IS TO RECOVER TO OUR PEOPLE MARKETS THAT THEY HAVE LOST AND TO OBTAIN FOR. THEM NEW MARKETS INTO WHICH THEY-HAVE NOT, HITHERTO, SOUGHT AN. ENTRANCE. The dutte* on iron ore, pig Iron, scrap Iron and scrap steel, and all the various forms of bar iron, have'been retained as they are In the present tariff, except where they have been slightly reduced. So have those on iron and steel forging, on steel ingota and on copper. With the exception of the duty on tin, the metal sohedulea have been subjected to a general reduction. . M The extent- to which, the. bill. has. gone to protecting the products of the farm and, to reducing the expenses- of- the- farmer Is a striking witness of the the-Republican: party has always exercised over mense portion of our population engaged in .'•twine has ^placed at seven-tent^of a °^^^|gS^^S,^^ilbHoimess ot duty fixed In thff Mills bill.
