Wk kcoiu to remember that last sum
mer u year ago, iluiuig tho piobidoutial
campaign, our lopuhlicau friends woio
vocilcious in asbortmg and pioviug that
the piotectivo tmitt Hail given us tho
uesi and cheapest goods in tho world,
but since that time there has been a
steady decline in all lines ot goods not
pioicctcu by a trust, uoiwiinstumiing
the pioiuise to tho manutactuter that
the taritt would keep Ihom steady, and
it has been in opomtion all tho time.
So it would bcoiuthal tho tariff has been
overruled by tho higher law of supply

how, when wo consider tho blessingB-of
tho tarill wo got into a maze of doubt

Tho trouble is that tho democrats
camo into power and immediately
threatened to put u nondescript low
tariff law into operation, which had tho
effect ot paralyzing a gieat many in
dustries and partially demoralizing
others. Prices havo declined because
democrats havo destroyed industry and
thrown more than u million people out
of employment and scattered destitu
tion all over the laud. Tho people who
aro tho greatest consumers huveu't uny
money to buy goods at any price the
democratic party has taken it away
from them und when there is no do
niuiid prices must inevitably drop, pro
tection or no protection. If the tiemo
cratic party hud'ut closed tho factories
entuiling general poverty', prices would
havo remained stublu.
