WHAT ONE YEAH APPARENTLY DOES. Now, my friend from West Virginia has talked about the losses of American agriculture owing to the unfriendly action of foreign governments; and I,deplore those losses as much as he possibly can; but the losses from the intervention of foreign nations have been absolutely insignificant compared with the injury which American agriculture has sustained by;reason of the prostration of the American ; market place itself. One year of idleness, one year of poverty, one year of silent factories and reduced wage scales in the United States has worked a loss to the American farmer almost equivalent to the total of possible foreign commerce in the products of the farm.

Nobody can wonder that the farmers of the United States, thus confronted with the prospect of a permanent reduction in the scale of American wages, take a rather languid interest in the timid and-almost pathetic efforts of my friend from West Virginia to concilliate the German Ambassador. (Laughter.) No misforcune coming to our people from the malice of the agrarian party of Germany at all approaches the calamity that has fallen upon the American farm from the stupidity of the Democratic party of the United States. The agricultural schedule in the act of 1890, which was placed there upon the testimony of life-long students of our agricultural situation, proved an adequate protection of 'our own markets against our competitors, It stood guard along our whole fron- no alien or straner could conscience* American! swine were interdicted from entrance into the ports of Germany. It was, ih my judgment, an act of unreasonable hostility to the agriculture of Amcericaj Which ought to have met the instant challenge of the American Government. In 1890 the general revision of the tariff laws of the United States took place. Fortunately for us we had as Secretary of Agriculture one of the strong and tplehdid figures of our time, Uncle Jerry Husk, (applause)j now dead and gone, and he brought into this House, and Congress passed the bill for the inspection of meat products, arming the President with the power to retail ate against every nation that undertook to execute an unfriendly discrimination against the meat exports of the United States. We had as Secretary of State a popular leader, gone, too, out of the noise of ? time, and I well retnember the day when he came to this Capitol with his project of limited reciprocity, whereby the sugar'producing countries could be brought under agreements of fail dealing with the United States in exchange for the free admission of sugar into the markets of this country,..;; :\Vith these two measures in their hands, the meat- inspection act and the'tariff law of 1890, our ministers in all the capitals of Europe were able very speedily to obliterate every prejudice against our agricultural methods (laughter), and before William Walter Phelps left the German capital the American hog, Who has been called by a poet "the silent partner of the American cornfield," was able to go everywhere in the enjoyment of his honest reputation throughout the market places of the world. oThat policy, uufortunately for us, no longer remains on our statute books. It was struck down, or rather smothered to death, in the carnival of democratic oratory that took possession of this Chamber ii? the summer of 1894. In vain did we plead its success, its popularity at home, and its recognition abroad. It was marked,for destruction. The overthrow of the policy of reciprocity was a part of the delirium of the midsummer madness of 1894. (Laughter; applause oh the Eepubli- can side.) In vain had the policy won triumphs for our trade in all the countries of Spanish America such as the gentleman from Illinois [Mil. HOPKINS] has just laid before us. In vain had it brought back from Europe trophies of commerce and business won by the diplomacy of our ministers at Berlin, at Christiana, at Paris, at Vienna. In vain had it secured the attention of political economists in England and provoked from the lips of Lord,. Salisbury the first important En'glish ^protest against the idolatry of British free trade. The-awkward hand ^of Democratic-,, tariff /-reform was laid Upon'ifc.'/'It'WaX wiped.out by a single act^the blindest and most ruinous in the annals of recent politics, and the American people were robbed, possibly for all time to come, of the; benefits that had ibeen conferred upon their commerce by the genius of, James G. Blaine. (Loud applause.) And now I undertake 1 ^ say that the violation of the reciprocity treaties is more truly at the bottom of this German complaint of today than the defferential duty put upon German sugar.

MANWARING. Corwith -Hustler: Hoke Smith and company .i.ave seen lit to cut down Mr. Manwaring's pension from twelve to six dollar;! per month. Why Mr. Manwaring sliould have been selected as a victim ofjthe present economic (?) pension policy, we do nob understand. He was drawing a pension under the "new law" or Jaw of 1890, which entitled every Uniqn soldier to $12 per month, who was disabled from earning his support by manual labor, whether the disability was caused by service in the army or.not. No one acquainted with the circumstances doubts the justness of Mr. Manwaring's claim. For some time he has not been able to do scarcely anything -which would contribute ,to his and his family's support. There are in this vicinity drawing pensions under the saine law who are far more able co stand such a cut than Mr. Manwaring, and why he should be pounced upon by this son of a - rebel colonel we cannot ut this writing explain, Cuss words avajleth nothing, therefore we refrain. \ _ _ WE ARE VEWY SWELL.
