The American Economist, in summing up the difference between free trade in England and protection in America, says: "As many Free-Trade papers have recently acknowledged and explained that our outflow of gold was checked because our exports have been larger than our imports, we would like them to study the following little table show ing the result of a quarter of a century's export and import trade, per cap ita of population, in Free-Trade England and-in Protected America: AVKBACiE ANNUAL EXPORTS TKR CAPITA.

This paper is published monthly to advocate 'economical government, just taxation ami. perfect freedom of .trade. 1 ! Ft om. this "reform" authority pur Free-Trad ers will learn that during a quarter of a century of Free-Trade, the British ex; ports have declined by, £1 4s. 4d. pe? capita of population of the United Kingdom, while their imports have increased by £0 4s, lid. per capita, thus making a total of £1 0s. 3d. per capita of trade balance against them. „ Our experience, under a quarter of a century of Protection, has been different. Our Imports have decreased by £0 6s. 8d. per. capita since 1870-74,while our exports have increased by £093. Id. per capita, thus making £0 15s, Od. per capita less gold that we must ship abroad now from our trade balance. Adding their loss to our gain, Jit seems ;hat the difference between the Free- Trade and Protection policies, as represented by foreign commerce, is a loss of £2 5s. Od. per annum to every man, woman and child in the United Kingdom. Let the Free-Tradera paste this little table in their hats for ready reference: . . ' • FRKE^THADK VS.

Od. Whether the British system of "freedom of trade'' has resulted "just taxa- Ion" or "economical government," we eave the British suffering poor to ex>lain, It is clear that their constant >eavy loss has been offset in some other vay than through actual trade, and in no way has this been more effectively accomplished tbaa by their almost ab- olute monopoly of the carrying trade f trana-oQeaaic commerce and the rna-, ine insurance Incidental thereto. No wonder their nerves are somewhat un- trung because we talk of carrying American freight in American vessels. of Among the speakers at, eioti was Ex-temter Patrick tor of the "Augaetn Chronicle" .In the course of his address, hs said: Do you know that today, while loyal to the principles which the majority of our people advocated in the Presidential election— I fear to say it, lest it may be looked open en disloyal to our party— it may be all for the best that the measure of the Republican party should be fully tested during the next four years; but it is due to candor to eay that I have very little faith either In the promises or in the performances of that party BO far as the South is concerned. But were 1 in Congress, I would give the party la power free scope to enact such laws aa it may deem essential for a revival of business and a return of prosperity. If their administration of the government proves a failure, the American people will hold the Republican party to a strict accountability and the principles and policies of the Democratic party will be vindicated in the next Presidential election. Some of our Southern friends who, heretofore.have listened to nothing but free trade are having the Protective idea beaten into their heads by four years of unprecedenented stringency, The Republican party accepts the proposition of Brother Walsh and.with a reasonable chance, the STANDARD knows that the principles of protection will improve the condition of things all over the country, in both the v South and the North.

The new tariff bill Is now in the hands of the Finance Committee of the Senate and this Committee has a large staff of experts figuring on the different items. It is not expected that it can be rushed through the full committee at the rate practiced in the House Committee for the Rer/ublicans have not a majority of the Finance Committee, nor have they any method of closing debate or forcing a vote in committee, any more than they have In the Senate. But they hope to get the bill into the Senate by the end of the month, if not sooner. , The''present indications .are that there will be a larger number of changes, but not nearly BO large or radical ones as hud been expected. The disposition which had been manifested ia the beginning to reduce the rates named by the House bill is not so apparent as at first, although it is expected that the rates on wool will be nlightly reduced, unless it shall become apparent to members of the committee that the votes from the wool-producing section, which are required for its passage, will be imperiled by. such action. In speaking of the quick passage of the Dingley bill in the House.the Inter- Ocean says: Whether it be greatly, amended by the Senate or whether It become law in nearly the form In which it has left the House, the character of the r vbte by which the Dingley bill" was passed by the representatives of -the people, and the quickness with which it was transferred to the consideration of the Senate, must be accepted as evidence of the imperative desire of the Nation that tariffs shall be increased, and that they shall be (ncreased quickly. The Senate wllfnot be held guiltless if it needlessly prolong the period of deficit a'ntl Industrial stagnation. Wstrong"l8 the demand~fo7 tariff reform in the direction of protection that five Democrats, from Southern districts, too, and one Populist joined with the solidly Republican majority in the House ia approval of it. When a considerable number of Southern Representatives vote for a protective tariff it is safe to say that the schoolmaster Experience has been abroad and that he has-had many scholars. Almost equally indicative of the trend of national opinion is it that twenty- one Populists and f uslonlats.geutlemen with one simple rule of action, "be agin the government," were so considerate of .the day in which they again shall meet their constituents as to refrain from voting against the bill. Some amendments may be necessary; but, unless all signs shall fail, the pfco- pie will not patiently bear protracted discussion or radical reconstruction of Jie measure. In the main, the Dingley bill is a faithful reflex of the desire and gratification of the need of the jeople, who will not bear patiently pro- .racted discussion or factious opposition by the Senate.
