The great campaign is on and the
voice of the orator is heard in the
land. The argument that protec
tion injures the farmer has always
been a favorite with the free trader,
it has steadily grown in favor and
has been given a decided turn in
the fifty second congress by the at
tempt to remove the duty fioni
wool, binding twine, and tin plate.
The truth is. that manufactured ir
ticles.and especially those which
concern the farmer, are on an aver
age twenty-live pel" cent cheaper
than in , wlien eighty per c '::t
ol them were made abroa I. That,
now more than eighty per cent are
made at home, the larimr has
been sa e 1 the co-t ot ocean trans
portation on tliis eighty pi r cent
and has had the benelit of t iie i ; ..ie
market their manufacturer ha- cre
ated for his produce. That ,-uch
market is certain at his door and
already taken eighty percent ot lii
wln at and n i n ty-l vo per ce il of
his corn. That it keeps even pace
with the growth of maiiul ictures
ami will ere long take all his sur
plus, at a belter rate than he can
get abroad, and ill competition
with the cheap wheat of India and
Australia. In addition to the above
argument, protectionists show that
our free list now embraces nearly
one half of our importations; that
said list comprises all of the arti
cles which ellect the comfort of the
farmer or poor man, such as sugar,
fruit, rice, tea, coltee and breeding
animals, etc; and that the dutiable
list embraces all the high priced
articles and articles of luxury, such
as wines, liquors, cigars, silks, sat
ins, glassware, diamonds, linens,
cottons, etc., the duties of which are
mostly paid by the wealth'. The
free trader argues that free raw ma
terial used in the manufactures is
especially worth of a place on the
free list. Among these he classes
wool, llax, hemp, seeds, iron ore,
pig iron, coal, marble, etc. The pro
tectionists claim that the free list
as enlarged by the act of IS'JO, con
tains a sul'licent number of these
articles, that those like wool, which
pays a duty, come into competition
with the product of our farmer and
laborers in shops, mines and fur
naces. That labor is the prime ob.
ject of protection. Protection repu
diates the doctrine that it is a de
vide for the benelit of the privileged
classes. It rests on the principle
that it operates for the general de
velopment of the resources and the
encouragement of the industries of
the country. If classes or capital
areemboldened by it to undertake
new ventures or to enter the chan
nels they would otherwise do, that
is a matter which does not effect
the prime object of protection and
controlled by legislation. It was
not Kngland's taritf legislation, but
her free trade system, which tended
most to sustain her landed aristoc
racy. Out of the ten richest men in
the United States, nine have accum
ulated fortune in speculative and
commercial pursuits, other than
manufacturing and one in manufac
lures that had to deal with protect
So as to trusts. Protectionists
know the facts do not support the
theory that protection leads to
trusts. The worst trust ridden
countries are free trade countries.
Trusts in America are quite fre
quently the result of Kngland's
genus and capital. The Standard
Oil, Chicago (las, Street Kailways,
Klectric Lighting, Cotton Seed Oil
and others w hich rank as trusts or
combinations, exists in spite of the
doctrines id protection and in no
way concern it. It is by no means
certain that these combinations are
hurtful to the public at large, lor
every one that lindsan existence by
reason of dealing in unprotected
articles ten would exist, tarill or no
taritf. Ji n., Tn 15 Ki: tow.
THE SILVER ISSUE PLAINLY
It is said if we adopt the silver
standard we will get more money
for our labor and productions.
This does not foil o w, but, even if it
be true, the purchasing power of
our money will be diminished. All
experience proves that labor and
the productions of the farm are the
last to advance in price. Liven if,
after a long struggl.', wages and
wheat should advance as silver
falls, what benefit does the farmer
or laborer gef: .vone whatever.
He will get more dollars with less
purchasing power. Silver dollars
worth 77 cents in gold will buy no
more food and clothing than 77
cents of our money now. The capi
talist and speculator can protect
themselves from loss by stipulating
for gold payments. This is almost
universally done now in California
and other silver countries, and is
generally done in all railroad and
othi r securities running lor a long
time. The owner of land and ail
other, property can advance his
price Hs the silver falls. The whole
burden of the policy falls upon
those who depend upon their daily
labor for their daily bread, and tor
the benelit of those who hope, by
cheapening money, to par their
debts with money less valuable
than the money they agreed to pay.
Mut it is said we want more
money to transact the business of
the country. Do we get more
.money by ilcnumeti.ing one-half of
all we have? for the gold now in
circulation is more than the basis
of all the great transactions of
foreign and domestic commerce.
With gold at a premium it would
sink out of sight ami be bought
and sold like any other commodity,
as it was during the war alter the
suspension of specie payments.
We will again have gold for the
capitalists and silver for the people.
The fluctuations will be daily
marked by the premium on gold
