Reciprocity Scores for America Against
The Hriti?h ZhiuV Journal, of July 1, uttors a
most piulntive and distressing wall over the
ev.I effects of our reciprocity policy on British
commerce. It says:
British merchants and manufacturers are
asking themselves whether something could
not havo been done to prevent the conclusion
of the Spanish West Indian treaty between
Spam aud the United States in Its present dif
ferential form. It is ono result of the Jalluie
of British negotiations at Madrid for a renewal
of the treaty with Spain, which expired yester
day. To-day, thoref ore, July 1, the now nnd
enormously Increased duties come Into force
in tbo peninsula, and the United Statos stc
into the Cubnn and 1'orto Rico market, while
British goods are shut out."
This Is the sumo reciprocity policy, lot It
not be forgotten, ot which the Free Trade
party, always In the van when It comes to
sneerlug at American progress or belittling
Aui'Ttcau policies, dismisses all consideration
in Its platform, aftor contemptuously refer
ring to it as a "humbug." It is it No the same
reciprocity of which tho World, leading Free
Trade organ, says that it is a scheme to "un
tax foreigners only." Untax foreigners ouly?
One would Indeed scarcely think so from the
above editorial. But it Is true we had forgot
ten thnt the un-Ainertcan II'orM, whoso pro
prietor directs Its policy from his splendid
home in London, probably refers to Am- rlcaiis
as foreigners, and his d flnltlon of reciprocity
aa a scheme to "untax foreigners only''
should, th. refore, be aoceito l is a 00m j lt
ment rnthor than a ropr"n h. Thorn cunnot
be any doul t, however, that John Bull tuluk-
