FREE TRADE AND THE FARMER
The Journal in yesterday's iesoe

draw an inference other than that we

It is not often that a democratic
paper id no frank in dealing with
thin question an in our contempo

pleading for "tariff reform," but our
friend in outspoken and give un
liis concluxionH without qualified
tion or disguise.
What tlie Journal ha to nay an to
the dependence of every enterprise
upon the farming industry and the
necennity for the pronperily of the
f.iriner, before other industries can
prosper, we fully indorne; hut when

Thin coiiulrv han an extruded
area that in well adapted to agri
culture, and naturally enough t H'

for in all to be farmers': It neemn
reasonable that noine step must be
taken to diversify the industry.

Hut it in an established fact that
under a protective tariff our indus

of the war of 112 congress passed a
lotfl'ly protective tariff law on condi
tion that the law be in-operative at
the close of the war; accordingly in
1 1 I free trade was a'aiii in full
blast. The result was, owinjr to the
advantages possesed by (he mother
country, that our inanufactiirien
were closed and business prostrated.
One writer sums the conditions up
as follows: "No price for properly,
no sale except those by the sheriff
and marshall; no employment for
industry; no demand for labor; No

enactment of the tariff of 1H24, Thin
act, supplemented by an additional
act of H'-S ntrain started our in

in the south and under Calhoun the

the trouble in 1:U the tariff was
a-ain re-adjii-.ed. Hut in IMU a
purely revenue tarilf, or practical
free trade was adopted. In regard
to its elfcct upon the country Presi
dent Huchauan in hi message to
congress says: "With unsurpassed
plenty in all the elements of nation,
al wealth, our manufacturers have
suspended, our private enterprises
of different kinks are abandoned
and thousands of useful laborers
are thrown out of employment, and
reduced to want.
The foregoing proves conclusive

It is particularly noticeable that
the democratic party ia appealing
to tire farmer, uin practically the
same argument that was used in

benefitted by past experience. 1 hey
realise that thrice this policy has

foreign monopoly ha been crushed
and prices nteadily declined.

(ieorife S. Hull recently conducted some

and be tiuds that galvanic action takes
place, which results in the introduction
of poisonous salts of copper aud tmc
into the cream. It appears that the
freezer and the uddle are generally
made of dissimilar meUm, and the
cream, especially if mixed with fruits or
other acids or even saline sulmlauces,
forms an electrotyte, which naturally
completes the nec.es.sary conditions fur
W itb galvanic action there is, of
course, chemical action, result'iig in
the formation of salts of tine and cop

cream. Dr. Hull has probably discov
ered the cause of many mysterious can
of poisoning which have followed the
consumption of ice cream. The remedy,
however, seems very simple; if the
freezer and the miier were made of the
same metal, no galvanic action could
take place. Iron.
